2017 Outfits In Review

img_9645_layers_v1

Better late than never! Here is a compilation of some of my favorite outfits from 2017. Notice, how when it starts to get cold, there are fewer outfits posted. That has less to do with me not liking the outfits, and more to do with the fact that I hate the cold! Haha. Plus I feel bad bringing my hubby and kids out in the freezing cold to do a shoot. So therefore, you don’t see much of the winter outfits haha. But nonetheless, here are some favs. If you click each individual photo, it will take you to the original post to see the whole shoot. Which look is your favorite?

P + P Spring Closet Sale!

Spring Closet Sale

Hello there lovely readers!

You know when your closet gets so messy that you can’t even see the floor anymore? ¬†Things piled so high, so utterly disorganized, that you give up and just forego cleanliness and keep piling things¬†on in heaps? ¬†No? ¬†Is that just me? ¬†Well, my closet had definitely gotten to that point, and this weekend I finally decided to do something about it with a little spring cleaning. ¬†I must admit, I have a little bit of a hoarding tendency. ¬†My husband is constantly getting on my case about throwing things away.

Zack:  I mean Gi, do you really need to keep every birthday card, soccer trophy, and note you passed in 8th grade?

Me:  YES HONEY I DO.

When it comes to clothing, I am not much better. ¬†I usually keep things around until they are unwearable. Clothes stick¬†around in my closet waiting for a day when that trend will¬†“come back in style.” ¬†I have sorority T-shirts that I don’t even wear anymore, but I cannot bear to part with because of all the memories associated. ¬†A dress that I didn’t wear all summer will sit there with the clear intent that I will wear it. ¬†Then that summer goes and passes, and the dress is still hanging by its lonely self hoping for the following summer to grace the world with it’s presence once again.

That being said, it’s tough to hoard in a two¬†bedroom apartment with a husband and a baby. ¬†The things pile on and the clutter becomes absurd. ¬†Gretchen says de-cluttering is one of the keys to happiness, and I certainly agree that lack of clutter has eased my stress in the past.

So there you have it.  On a quest to staying happy and relieving stress, I spent the weekend cleaning.  And here is my first little online closet sale to show for it.

Here’s the scoop:

1) I created a Pinterest board with all the items for sale.

2) If you want to buy an item, write “Sold” in the comments section along with your PayPal email. ¬†If you don’t have a PayPal account, you can create one here.

3) Half of all proceeds will go to a Reader’s Choice charity. ¬†After you write your intent to buy an item, please cast your vote for your¬†charity of choice. ¬†I will then randomly select a charity from the reader’s votes to make the donation.

4) Shipping is not included.  All items will be sent standard USPS.

5) All items are final sale.

Happy Shopping!

These are a few of my favorite outfit posts from 2013. ¬†The past year has been a wild ride full of ups and downs, but I am so grateful for how everything has turned out. ¬†These past four months have been especially wonderful watching my little boy grow up right before my eyes and spending time during the holidays as a family of three. ¬†I am going to soak in this last week of being a stay-at-home mom and enjoy every minute of snuggles before going back to work. ¬†Hope you all have been enjoying the little break, and wishing you all the best in the new year to come. ¬†I’m looking forward to a bright future ahead in 2014!

Hi

IMG_4044

HI!!! ¬†While browsing for sparkly sequined outfits to wear for my AC trip a couple weeks back, I also came across this adorable sweater. ¬†I love the color palette, the comfiness, and the “Hi” lettering that speaks volumes to my personality. ¬†I am the type of person who will pretty much talk to anybody, even strangers on the street. ¬†While of course every now and then I like to ¬†have my “me” time, I usually love being around others, the overall energy of people, meeting new friends, and hearing their stories. ¬†My family and friends know that if we go somewhere, I will most likely run into somebody, and they will have to drag me along to keep me from talking to them all day.

Speaking of meeting new people, I went on my first “blogger date” this past Saturday. ¬†I would like to introduce you all to Alex of She Is Red. ¬†We have been “blogger friends” for a couple months now, and it was fantastic to finally meet her in person. ¬†She is an Oregon native who recently moved to New York City from just outside Copenhagen. ¬†She has a wonderful blog featuring fashion, food, and sparkly things. ¬†You definitely need to check it out!

We met at The Farm on Adderley (one of my favorite restaurants in the neighborhood) for a delicious brunch, and then did a little photo op in Ditmas Park. ¬†Five minutes into our photo op, we were just getting warmed up to photographing in front of someone other than our close relatives when we were screamed at by a psycho lady! ¬†This woman came storming out of her house yelling at us to stop taking photos of her house, because there was no sex offender living there and this story and these lies had ruined her life for the past 10 years. ¬†Umm…WHAT?!?! ¬†First of all, we are fashion bloggers taking photos of our outfits. ¬†Second of all, your house was not even in our shot. ¬†Third of all, we had no idea about this “sex offender” story and had no plans to broadcast it (until now of course). ¬†And lastly…you are PSYCHO! ¬†It was a little bit of a shake up for our first photo op together, but we nervously shuttled off to another street with normal, sane neighbors to finish our shoot. ¬†I suppose as weird as this incident was, it does make for a great crazy story!

Alex and I had a wonderful day, and I didn’t even notice how quickly the time had passed. ¬†I am happy to now call her a real friend instead of just a blogger friend. ¬†We realized we have a mutual love of karaoke, so I’m thinking that will be our next adventure!
