An announcement, A plea for help, And an outfit from the archives!

 First of all, thank you girls for your input about the Frye boots yesterday.
I kind of panic about big purchases fearing an awful case of buyer's remorse....
but all of your comments made me realize that these aren't boots,
they are an INVESTMENT,
and I need to diversify my portfolio with a gorgeous pair of boots.
Yes, that's my angle.

Tonight is the premier of The Bachelor!
I've watched each and every season of The Bachelor.
(I haven't loved every season, but I've watched every season.)
Well...this season is sure to be the best yet!
And if I know Chris Harrison (and I think I do), 
Just a hunch.
Why I am most excited about this season?
Because one of my besties brothers is THE bachelor!
Hello Sean!

 How you doin?

Don't even play like you didn't say it like Joey Tribiani in your head.


Shay (his sister) and I became friends about 5 years ago when we were pregnant with Carter (mine) and Kensington (hers).
You guys might know Sean as the hottie with the body (you can totally quote me on that),
but I know him as an awesome Christian guy that LOVES his family.
Here he is with Smith, Shay's son.
I mean, HOW cute!?!
Shay, Sean, and Me this summer at a Bachelorette watching party at Shay's house!

Make sure you are checking out Shay's family blog every week for a re-cap of the show.
You can find her family blog HERE.
And if you eat food (ha!), you should also check out her foodie blog HERE.
I'm telling you, you won't have to ever pull out a cookbook again!
Lots and lots and lots of easy and yummy recipes!

So, in honor of all The Bachelor awesomeness,
once a week I'm going to try to switch things up a bit around here.
I'm going to do a "A BACHELORETTE TOLD ME TO" outfit inspiration post where I take something that one of the ladies wears on Monday night and re-create it later that week.
And no, I will won't be doing any hot tub looks.
You're welcome.
I hadn't planned on doing this week because I didn't want to copy an evening gown;
however, I just thought about the fact that I could have copied one of their promo shot looks!
I have 25 outfits to choose from, and I'll be coming back with one tomorrow (if I can get my act together fast enough) or later this week.
I can go ahead and tell you that I will not be re-creating the look on the left. ;)

This is going to be SO MUCH FUN!

A Plea for Help

I want all of you to know that I get SO excited (like over the top maybe even a little crazy excited) for each comment that you leave for me!
It's so nice of you to take the time to leave a comment, and I appreciate it so so much.

There are lots of comments that come through to me (and other bloggers of course) that have a person's name and/or blog attached to them, but they also say "no reply comment".
When I would reply to these comments, the reply address might look like this:

An Outfit from the Pinterest Told Me To Archives
That's right y'all.
I have archives.
I'm not sure why this one never made it to the blog.
Orange shirt|  Target
Jeans|  Gap
Leopard flats|  Target
Pearl Necklace|  I have no idea.  I think it is around 23 years old.

The Pinterest picture also had pearls in it, but they got cut off when I cropped the picture.
Totally random to wear pearls with this...but I actually like it!

 p.s.  If you know me, please don't call me between 7:00-9:00 tonight.
I'm busy.


  1. How fun to watch tonight when it's someone you know who is the Bachelor! I too am a Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise junkie and plan to watch yet again...can't wait! Your idea to recreate the looks from the girls will be fun to watch!

  2. Cool! I have a confession...I've NEVER watched The Bachelor/Bachelorette! Now's a good time to start, I suppose. Can't wait to see all the looks that you recreate.

  3. I can't wait to watch this season of the Bachelor. I have watched almost every season. It is awesome to know that Sean is a Christian. I hope there are some Christian women on this season. Promo shot #2 and #3 are cute. #1 is scary!!!!

  4. I'm SOOO excited for tonight!!Did I fix my settings correctly? I love your outfit today...super cute!! I have been debating about the leopard Toms....I already have a gray and red pair but I think I need the leopard ones, too!!

  5. Shut your mouth!!!! You know him??? Okay, you are now a celeb in my book!!! Hope he doesn't end up with a skank. :)

  6. i am not a no reply girl :)! and so cool about Sean, and im a little jealous!!

  7. The girl on the left looks like she misapplied her apron.

  8. You are so lucky to know me ;). Ha! Actually, I'm super, super blessed to know YOU! I can't wait to dissect the season with you sweet friend. Love!!

  9. I was REALLY hoping you were going to recreate the outfit on the left. I even giggled a bit...THEN you had to put that disclaimer after the picture. Boo! Remember you have to challenge yourself, get out of your comfort zone ;) Ha! Yay for tonight!

  10. Love the idea of recreating outfits from the Bachelor! I watch every.single.week...even if it's someone I'm not that excited about, I can't bring myself to not watch. Can't wait for Sean's season, though...finally a bachelor who loves the Lord! He was my pick for Emily's season (I also loved JP on Ashley's season and Chris Lambton on Ali's season, but anyway).

    Do you watch Revenge? It's on ABC at 9pm on Sunday's an AWESOME show...but in addition to that, their clothes are incredible...I want to rob their wardrobe department!

    Good call on the black/white animal print outfit. I think she would benefit from reading your blog ;)

  11. I'm sure that there's a zebra cardi out there calling your name :)

  12. Ok...just a few tags. 1) For the record I was Team Sean all the way on Emily's season. He just seems like a nice guy...and not to shabby to look at! 2) super cute orange shirt! 3). Going to follow Shay's blog. 4) I also follow a hysterical blog that recaps all the shows. Just sharing in case you're interred. It's So funny.

  13. Just found your blog and love your fashion sense!! You gotta get the Frye boots..I have a pair and they are AWESOME:)

  14. Ha ha ha, I really thought you'd be recreating the outfit on the left! Darn! ;) I didn't watch last night so I'll have to catch myself up and join in on the fun. He is so dang cute!


I would of course love to hear what you think! As long as it is super sweet.....and maybe a little sassy. Sheaffer :)
