Get Your Pretty On turned one yesterday…and what a year it’s been.
It all started with that first outfit photo where I was so proud of myself for actually getting dressed to have lunch with my daughter at her school. This blog has come a long way baby!
And so have I.
It’s been a daily journey of learning, discovery, friendship, creativity, challenges and growth. I didn’t start it with any goals in mind, it was just a fun diversion and a way to hold myself accountable for getting out of my yoga pants every day. I never could’ve dreamed it would grow into what it is today.
I have all of you to thank for this. Never did I think that anyone would actually be interested in what I was wearing, or my beauty routines, let alone my personal stories and family life. You’ve shown a genuine interest and spurred me on in big and small ways on those days where I wasn’t sure that I could keep going.

Here’s to another year of getting our pretty on together!

Do you have that perfect go-to outfit that you wear over and over?
I do and today I’m going to show you mine.
I’m not ever sure what’s so perfect about it. It’s nothing special. But it incorporates all of my favorite things – layers, a comfy knit, a scarf, skinny jeans and boots.
Let’s start with the shirt. I bought it for a print shoot last year and honestly thought I would never wear it again. I just wasn’t that crazy about the color. Even though it looks burgundy in these photos, it’s more of a deep purple and I don’t wear dark colors very often.

I started pairing it up in different ways – half tucked with boyfriend jeans, loose over leggings and layered with skinny jeans. It quickly became a wardrobe staple.
One chilly day, I threw a knit open front vest and scarf on with it and a new favorite outfit was born.
