Back to Reality


This past weekend was so needed for Jared + I. It was so amazing to unplug from the world for a couple days and recharge our batteries.

We went on a canoe trip with family to Niangua River in Central Missouri. The cabins we stayed in (One Eyed Willy’s) were so charming and beautiful, too. The weather was absolutely perfect; cool at night for fires and 75 degrees during the day for canoeing. I don’t believe there could have been better weather for the occasion; although, we still all got sunburnt!

I lived in layers over the weekend since the weather shifted so much from night to day.  Right now I am really loving knit, open-front sweaters, paired with a light-weight tee underneath. I feel like layers are key to surviving fall and spring time here in the midwest, no doubt!

So today is back to reality; checking emails, cleaning house, laundry, running the boutique, etc. Not to mention I’m feeling a head cold coming on. That or it’s allergies. Not totally sure yet. All I wanted to do today was wear comfy sweaters and long sleeves but it’s like 83 degrees.

Despite the heat + headache, I did manage to get over to Charlotte Russe and LOFT today because they’re having AMAZING sales on so many good things. I had to share it with you all because what kind of friend would I be if I didn’t? LOFT is offering 50% off of EVERYTHING + Free shipping on all orders, y’all!! I could live in their sweaters for days. I love LOFT’s casual style and all the good wardrobe staples.

So in addition to layers, I’m currently drawn to tops that expose the shoulder. They’re so in and feel so feminine. I love this one because it has a bell shaped sleeve and is really light weight. I plan to layer it with sweaters and denim jackets! So so in love. I feel like it’s great for everyday wear as well as date nights!

At Charlotte Russe I found an amazing olive colored sweater, some cute black distressed boyfriend jeans, and another shoulder cut-out top in Merlot color. They had some amazing deals so I felt like I got a steal plus I loved their selection.

All for now, y’all. I’m going to do some online shopping because I want ALL the things!

P.S. – Don’t tell hubby about the shopping 😉

XOXO – Danielle

  1. I also really love the off the shoulder tops! Your trip sounded amazing! I was just thinking the other day that I need to take a vacation like that. Is that purple in your hair in the first picture? I actually really love that on you!


    1. Me, too! I think they’re really comfortable too. You should take a little trip + get away for fall, you deserve it!
      My hair has some undertones of red in it, it keeps coming out in the sunlight. I had it dyed in the spring and it’s really showing lately haha. Thank you!! xoxo
