Hi friends and happy Wednesday! I hope your week is off to a great start so far! I cannot believe we’re winding down February and that March is right around the corner. As much as I want to start thinking and planning warm weather outfits, it snowed 8 inches last night, so Winter is definitely still alive and well here in Nebraska!
So to keep my spirits up and my Winter wardrobe light & bright, I’ve been stocking up on some super cute and colorful sweaters! All of these pieces from American Eagle are on sale and will take me right from Winter to Spring. Style Tip – once the weather warms up a smidge, try wearing your favorite sweaters with jean shorts! Pairing cutoff shorts with long sleeve sweaters, tops, and duster cardigans & kimonos is my favorite combo and allows me to get the most bang for my buck!
I also wanted to share the “Ask Me Anything” Q&A session I did on my Instagram Stories last week! It makes my heart SO happy to have the opportunity to connect with you girls, and there’s nothing I love more than combining fashion with friendship!
Q – When and Why Did You Start Blogging?
A – I first started sharing my daily work looks on Instagram in January 2013 and then I started my blog in February 2014! To celebrate one year of blogging full time, in 2017 I wrote a HUGE post sharing my journey and what I’ve learned along the way!
I plan to write an updated Blogging & Instagram Tips + Tricks post soon, so stay tuned for that!
Q – Favorite Jean Brand?
Q – How Did You and Tony Meet?
A – Tony and I met in February 2008 (11 years ago!) at a bar! I was there with my girlfriends and he was bartending when he spotted me haha. We had quite a few friends in common, as we were both in the bar industry, so he asked our mutual friend who I was and then tried to make his move! I resisted for a few weeks because I was really trying to stay single, but he wouldn’t take no for an answer (in the best, sweetest way!) and eventually after hanging out with friends then going on dates, he asked me to be his girlfriend on March 22nd of 2008 and the rest is history! We moved in together in May 2009, moved into our house in July 2010, he proposed in July of 2015 (on my 30th birthday!), and we were married on December 31st of 2016!
Q – What are Your Favorite Omaha Boutiques?
A – There are so many great places to shop here in Omaha! I honestly do most of my shopping online, but a few of my favorite places include: Village Pointe Shopping Center – Evereve, Francesca’s, Altar’d State, and Kendra Scott! I also love Four Sisters Boutique in Rockbrook Village, Anthropologie at Regency, and Von Maur at Westroads!
Q – How Tall are You?
A – I’m 5’2 but teeter close to 5’3 with big, full hair haha!
Q – How Old are You? And Do You Get Botox?
A – I’m a young 33! I’ve never had botox but I’m definitely considering getting botox and a little lip filler done this year! I’ve had my eyebrows microbladed but other than that, that’s it!
Q – What’s Your Favorite Kind of Wine?
A – I’ve never met a wine or alcohol I didn’t like! I’m way more open than Tony is when it comes to trying different kinds of wine, liquor, and beer. But we’re the exact opposite when it comes to food – I play it safe!
Q – How Long Did It Take You to Build Your Following?
A – This ties in with the first question above regarding how long I’ve been blogging! I began my social media journey in 2013, so needless to say this dream and community we’ve built did not happen over night!
Q – What is One Investment Piece You Hope to Own One Day?
A – Definitely a Chanel bag!
Q – Were You in a Sorority in College?
A – Yes! I went to the University of Nebraska at Omaha and was an Alpha Xi Delta! If you’re an AXD, then TFJ sister! xo

Q – What is Your Dream Travel Destination?
A – I’m dying to travel to the Mediterranean! Specifically… Italy, Spain, Croatia, and Greece!
Q – What are Your Favorite Sunglasses?
A – I love and swear by Quay Sunglasses! They are the only brand I buy because the price-point is $70 and under and the quality is wonderful!
Q – What is Your Favorite Nail Color?
A – I love pastel neon colors like pink, orange, purple, and blue and when I can’t decide, my go-to shade in the Spring and Summer is white and black in the Winer and Fall!
I hope you girls enjoyed today’s post and I hope you have a fabulous day! xo
