Striped Shirt Dress | Stone Pendant Necklace | Clear Frame Sunglasses Marc Jacobs Crossbody | Peep Toe Mules

Vertical stripes used to freak me out! I blame it on my sister and Beetlejuice. As kids, my sister loved that movie, whereas I…I loved Barney. But what did we watch over and over? Beetlejuice! The movie is seriously so freaky and I still can’t stand to watch it. It has scarred me for life. But worse than that, it made Read More

Black jeans and chambray are my go-to when I don’t have time to think about what to wear. (Ok, black jeans are my go-to no matter if I have time to think or not). With the right accessories black jeans and chambray can go from a day time look to a date night outfit. Which was just what I need the other week when Cody and I decide to go on a date night at the last minute. Basically neither one of us felt like cooking, so it was either cereal or Read More

I promise to start adding more color to my wardrobe soon. I just can’t resist a black and white outfit. My first thought was to wear my black and white sweater with my favorite black jeans, but then I had a heart-to-heart conversation with myself; Kacie, you can’t wear those black jeans with every single outfit. You need to get more creative with your clothes. So I decided Read More

Me and windowpane have been having a moment for the past week (exhibit a). I also just added this windowpane top to my closet 🙂 Ok, so I’ve been eyeing these windowpane pants for a while but I was nervous to order them because I’ve never found Old Navy pants to fit me very well. Well boy howdy, that has changed thanks to the pixie pant. These pants are amazing! My mom, sister, and I were shopping the other weekend and popped into Old Navy and they had the pants on major sale. They come in like a million different prints, it’s crazy! Needless to say, I Read More

So I have this weird relationship with vests where I love them on other people, but when I wear them I’m all like, “Aaaaah! Where are my sleeves?!” I don’t know why it freaks me out so much because I like tank tops and they don’t have sleeves. I’m a wierdo and I’m trying to get over it.

Before I talk about my pretty new jewelry (well, the necklace isn’t new, but the rings and bracelets are), I have to tell you about the new friend I made while I was taking these pictures. My new friend is…wait for it…keeping waiting…a miniature pig! He is the cutest thing ever and he has the coolest hair cut! I’ve seen him around town and I’ve always wanted to meet him, and my dream finally came true. His owner is the local barber (hence the awesome hair cut) and this location is where the pig goes for walks. It totally made my day. The little pig’s name is Read More

Can we all just take a minute to be super proud of me and maybe give me a little pat on the back? Why you ask? Because I only wore my favorite black/now sorta blue jeans once this week! I know, I know, way to go me! It took all the will power I had to not wear them several times but I did it folks! This is such a huge accomplishment for me. Now I know how Taylor Swift feels every time she wins an award. Read More
