It feels crazy it is already Monday, as the past weekend was written in my calendar as, “busy, busy, busy!” The days included going to Austin with Brice, driving home to visit family, and celebrating my new “Aunt status” at my sister-in-laws baby shower. Oh ya, I said it. I am going to be an Aunt!!!!!!! So many exciting things happening, the celebrations should will never end! 

Before the celebrations began for my sister-in-law, Brice and I had a few meetings in Austin which were interrupted by lunch at, The County Line. I seriously love their BBQ, but their outdoor patio with the water, slight breeze, and canopy of trees make it one of my favorite places to eat. After suffering minor heart attacks over sausage, ribs, and fully-loaded baked potatoes we headed out to, “sign on the dotted line.” Hint: see last picture!!!!! Although it won’t be official until the day of the wedding, we still celebrated the fact that we are inching closer and closer to calling it a done deal. 

And then we did this…

Grace has a soul that touches you the minute you meet her. I met her in 2011 but have never forgotten how sweet and caring she was. When we met she was marketing a jewelry brand that was still fairly unknown, called, Bauble Bar. I remember thinking how impressed I was at her diligence and determination. Fast forward a few years and Bauble Bar is now the place to shop for all of your jewelry needs. Grace’s passion and belief in the brand propelled her to make it one of the most visited jewelry sites on the web. Did I mention she is also runs the hugely successful, Stripes and Sequins blog? For all of this, I picked her as my April M.A.S. INTERVIEWS.

Basic Base

In creating a great look it is all about the base. In creating a great base you need the perfect basics. I have spent countless hours and hundreds of dollars on what I thought would be pieces that I could build a look around. Over the years I have been disappointed by these purchases when after a few wears their fit falters or the material gives out. I was about to throw up the white flag when I discovered Old Navy’s t-shirt line. I invested in a few choices but I must admit my favorite is this black and white striped number. It is so soft and has been very transitional. From wearing it in the day to sleeping in it at night it is my new favorite piece.

When you are building your wardrobe it is important to have basics which allow you to create a simple and neutral base. Having a neutral base easily allows you to create new and different looks just by changing out your accessories.
