Personal Style

Linking up with Andrea for show and tell Tuesday. Today's topic is all about your personal style. 


I love black and white. My family photos are black and white, I'm painting the entire house this winter in a crisp white and finally painting our baseboards white because I loathe our wood panels. I like things clean and simple and wish my house looked like it was in a pottery barn magazine. 

Rather than having 90,000 books laying around I have this metal milk crate holding a dozen books at a time and switching them up when they get bored with them. 

I have this rug in my shopping cart to update our dining room. 

I'm in the process of redoing the kids' room and here's a little sneak peek of what I've started. 

Olivia will move into a full size big girl bed and Liam will move into her Mickey bed. I'm taking the crib apart, painting it white, and turning it into a full size bed. 

The tissue paper flowers were so easy to make and she loves that as her pretty "headboard" 

My favorite room in the house is probably my black bathroom. 


Everyday wear is typically black leggings (not yoga pants, I hate the flair), a long shirt, some camel colored booties and simple silver/diamond jewelry. 

Not me. 

No shit. 

My safe place: My closet. 

That single white hanger is giving me so much anxiety. I have a strict all black hangers, facing the same way, and no hangers hanging up without an article of clothing on it. 

Rich knows how strict I am with my closet so of course he'll go in and rearrange and add colored hangers. I know I'm odd. 

I've had my eye on these boots for the longest time and finally bit the bullet and ordered them. Hurry up boots! 

I also love me some graphic tees. Bonus! They're from Mom-run shops

Like the description of me says in my 'About Me', my personal style is super unique: 

I'm a mom that loves Starbucks and Target and leggings and country music while drawing on chalkboards and planning extravagant birthday parties. 

Unique, huh? 


  1. I love your sense of style for your home as well. I wear my hunters ALL the time- even in the winter. Love the green that you're getting!

    1. Just got confirmation they'll be here tomorrow. *Stalks FedEx trucks*

  2. Love, love, love that bathroom! And now I might need to change all my hangers! Right now I just have my son's closet in all white. He doesn't have as many clothes as I do though. lol!

  3. I love how you shared your home style too! Ok I tried those tissue paper flowers once and they were an epic fail for me. You did such a good job on them!

    1. Thank you! If I could do it.... anyone can.

  4. You and me, were cut from the same cloth, everything you love I love too, except my hangers are brown, hehe. And all of my clothes face the same way, like fronts of shirts are always hanging to the left...

  5. Love the mama bear shirts! I'm also jealous that you included your house into your personal style post, what a great idea!

  6. I love that you included your home as part of your personal style. the blog name!
