Bashful, Burgundy and a Link-Up!


Well hello there!  😉

I know i’ve been a bit MIA lately. Honestly, I’ve been bashful. I have all these blogging ideas but find I am bashful about actually putting them on paper. Have you ever had those moments where you’re scared to death to do something that you know you should do? Ugh it can be so maddening. I got so many positive responses from my last post. Thank you guys so much for your kind words! It has been my most popular post yet. It was a HUGE  upper for me  but for some reason I’m finding myself at a loss for words?? It should’ve created HUGE momentum but the opposite has happened. I’m struggling with what to write about. What is wrong with me?? Any help would be GREATLY welcomed!

As for burgundy: oh yes, the ever beautiful burgundy. Honestly, burgundy reminds me of the jewel toned home decorating trend of the 90’s….and then I want to throw up in my mouth. So, when I started to see pops of burgundy come back up in stores for a minute there I got a little irritated, then I kicked myself and realized that actually burgundy is a gorgeous, classic color. Whether you choose to just accessorize  or you go all burgundy for your outfit it can be simply stunning. Sangria is the actual color name of Pantone’s Fall Color Report..or as I call it, simply burgundy. Here are some of my favorites:cn8059168

I love this classic banana republic satchel.  I would put this with just about anything.

I think these shoes speak for themselves. The studs are amazing. I LOVE this shoe!

Seriously -I don’t think it’s possible to go wrong with Kendra Scott earrings. I LOVE this shade of burgundy. I was also elated to find out that there is a Kendra Scott store coming to lovely Tulsa in 2015! YAY!


Of course this moto jacket is pretty much a no-brainer, yes? I would wear this jacket to bed! Seriously.


These pants. Oh my. I ordered them last weekend at the Labor Day Sale and they just landed on my doorstep. They are THE MOST comfortable pants I own. No lie. I’d wear these to bed too. With the jacket. Not kidding. I can’t wait to style them and show them off!


And did I just add a CAR to my blog? Oh yes I did. Why not? Yep, I’d love to have this deep red shadeofburgundy suburban. I couldn’t find a 2014 one so I chose this 2012. I don’t care- John refuses to buy brand new anyway! I have a black suburban right now and LOVE it. But I could trade it for this, yes?? It’s currently is on my wonthappenforawhile wish list:-)

I also have a bit of exciting news to share with you- my wonderful friend Lyndi over at A Little Joy  (who, ahem, was the flower girl in my wedding) and I have teamed up for a Link-Up called Friday Favorites.  It will be the 1st & 3rd Friday of every month and it will be a place to share your favorite post and mingle with other bloggers. In addition, we will feature a new blogger every time! More info to come. Until then KNOW I LOVE YOU!

The best is yet to come for you!!

Love, love, love you!

    Love the shoes and the leather jacket! I’m really into non-black leather jackets for the fall. This one is the perfect shade of deep wine.
