Life Lately

It’s been a bit since we had an Instagram roundup, so here we are today! While typing this post I realized that most of these pieces are worn multiple times in these photos. Honestly, my first thought was, “How boring?” But I kind of think it’s just honest and helpful! It gives you a few different ways to wear the pieces and it shows you that I really do love/wear/never take off what I blog.

There’s not much to update you in terms of “life” in today’s post. Snoozefest again, Katey?! I’m trying to get the house prepped as I have a friend coming to stay for a week the beginning of January! I’m thrilled to see her as she lives in California and I also feel like it’s a bit of a mini staycation taking her to her favorite spots here. I’ve also been spending the past few days in an organization frenzy. I’ve organized 3 closets, gone through file after file in terms of work, set up my new desk and the next job is organizing my phone. Is anyone good at organizing their phone?! Help a girlfriend out. I’m always needing to delete photos. I ordered this piece for my office area and I plan to use it to store my printer, file folders and binders. Is anyone else organizing before 2018 starts?!

      If you sign up for Ballard’s emails they always send 30% off coupons + gift cards in the mail to you. It ended up being about $400.
