It rained a couple days ago and I gotta say, I was really happy about it. Actually, most people were happy for the rainy weather because we haven’t gotten much rain this year (or last year either), and we’re in a pretty bad drought. But me? I was happy it rained because Read More

I know it’s Spring and all, but wouldn’t this be a super cute Fall outfit? The textures on the white skirt and sweater have a cozy feel to them and boots are Fall’s best accessory. Remind me to wear this outfit again in the Fall, will ya? But it also works for a chilly Spring day which is why I’m wearing it now 🙂 It was so chilly that Read More

Look at me, getting over my fear of Beetlejuice and vertical stripes! This is a big moment for me people. 

The weather was amazingly nice last weekend so Cody and I decided to go for a bike ride.  If you follow my on snapchat (username: kacierae3), you can see a snap of our bike ride 🙂 What I didn’t realize before we went because we have always walked the path instead of ride bikes, is just how many hills there are! They’re not very steep but they are super long, gradual hills and they are a killer. I was Read More

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!
