Madewell 'Spring Cleaning' Event Recap

Thank you to everyone who came out and made my Madewell spring styling event a success and to Amanda and the rest of the staff at Madewell, Garden State Plaza for being the most gracious hostesses.

I'm so blessed to be surrounded by such a beautiful and supportive group of ladies.

Stay tuned for future Classroom Couture x Madewell collaborations.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week!

(Offers cannot be combined, but you may use the denim to hit the $125 threshold for the 20% off)

Their new denim bar is amazing and offers something for each & every shape & size!

Spring Cleanout With Madewell

After a few warm fifty-degree days in a row, I'm ready for spring. I broke out the light layers over the weekend and while I'm not quite ready to pack away my winter wardrobe, I'm starting to incorporate some lighter, brighter pieces into my cold weather rotation.

Stay tuned because within the next few weeks, I'll be announcing details for another Classroom Couture x Madewell styling event scheduled for early April.

It's one spring cleaning session that you will not want to miss!



Warmer Winter Wear

I love mild January days where a chunky knit is just enough to keep warm.

Happy Monday!



2018: Goals

coat // top // leggings // boots // hat // aviators

Hello, and  happy (belated) 2018!

We made it through the holidays - probably the best holiday season to date in my book. It was so much fun seeing the wonder of Christmas through the eyes of my daughter, and this was the first year that she was really aware of it all. It was truly magical.

Since then I've basically been in hibernation. The weather in NJ has been brutal, like hard-to-even-leave-the-house, brutal, and that's coming from a native New Jerseyan. So we've been snuggling up inside, baking, playing dress up, watching lots of Disney movies and just reflecting/making plans for the new year.

I'm really excited for several projects that my husband and I have on the horizon and to go along with those bigger items, came up with some smaller, achievable goals for this year:

  • less tech time. Obvious, and I'm sure on most people's lists
  • improve my morning routine. with my daughter in pre-school three days a week now, it's imperative that I be as prepared as possible to get everyone out of the house without a hitch
  • find an easy, quick workout routine & stick with it. still looking - suggestions welcome
  • read a book a month. again, suggestions welcome
  • be more kind. 
Have you set any 2018 goals?

Happy Friday Eve!



Madewell Event Recap

a few items that I took home with me...

Thank you so much to everyone who came out and made my Madewell styling event a major success, and the wonderful store employees who were so gracious to my guests and me!

It was so much fun and everyone's (including my own) closets were a little better off afterwards.

If you missed out on this one, don't fret because we will be collaborating for another styling event sometime in the near future.
