stripes + gold


Good Morning!  Hope you had a lovely weekend!  Ours included yard work, cleaning house, opening day for Preston’s baseball season, and preparing for a little change around our starting back to work.  Today I’m starting a new part time job after 3 years of being at home with my kids.  I worked for 11 years before staying home and I'm kind of looking forward to getting back into it.  I have all kinds of emotions…but excited and nervous are the two big ones.  It’s the perfect job and I am so thankful for it - thanks Lorie ;)
And a big thank you to everyone who left me several very sweet comments on instagram yesterday about this new striped jacket that I shared in the picture above.  Because it received so much love it became the inspiration for today’s post.  I feel like it is a great Spring transitional look, so I decided to put an outfit together with similar pieces.  I actually got the blazer at a friend’s Cabi party and love it!

I’m a huge fan of classic pieces and I think this striped blazer will be a great addition to my wardrobe.  Love simple, timeless items.

Have a great day!


  1. Such a pretty outfit, love the pop of pink!

  2. Good luck at your first day back to work! I work part time and it's so nice.
    Love the outfit as well of course. :)

  3. Congratulations on the new job! I went back to work last year after a decade of super part time (teaching yoga) and SAHM. It is different and takes a different mindset but it has been a good change.

  4. Loving this outfit!!! Congrats on your new job! I work part-time as well, and for me, it has been the best of both world's! I hope it is the same for you and your fam!! :)

  5. Congrats on the new job - I bet you'll love it. I little more $ for those HomeGoods forays isn't a bad thing :)

  6. Loved the jacket on IG & love the outfit you put together! Congrats on the job!! Hope the transition goes smoothly & we get to hear what you're doing (ya know, I'm all onset like that :))

  7. Love love love the striped blazer! Good luck on the new job!
