Weekend with Katherine Liz

There are pros and cons to having to work every Saturday for my job... not always fun, but that means my weekend consists of Sunday and Monday off. Don't get me wrong I like my job but I look forward to the weekend as much as the next girl (usually because I have a million projects I want to do).

This weekend I finally got around to hanging some of my frames in my room. I recently moved and it always takes longer than you think it will to settle in. I have so many projects coming up and decorating ideas that I can't wait to do (and share).

All photos used are mine - please don't use without asking. Thanks!

I made some new pillow covers - let's talk about black leather and how in love I am with them. Promise I'll post a photo of the finished look soon.
What did you all do this weekend? Hope you had some fun in between all the errands and chores.


Casual Thursday.

Sometimes (almost all the time) simple is better. I tend to gravitate toward simple staple pieces that can be layered, accessorized or styled differently to create multiple looks. 
Try to pick a few staple items that can be used and mixed with other items such as a basic white or black t-shirt, a jean jacket, a neutral colored blazer, black or dark wash skinny jeans, neutral colored flats. Paired with a floral scarf, statement necklace, colored belt and a classic leather tote each of these pieces can be easily be transformed into functional and chic outfits.

J.Crew Jean Jacket (similar here), J.Crew Striped Pullover,  J.Crew flats, necklace and pants, Elliott Lucca pouch.

This would make for a perfect weekend look that you could easily change to make it you. If you refer a scarf to a necklace throw on a patterned scarf and some booties if you want a height boost (if you're short like me I love heels for some extra height!). Stick to finding great basics that fit well, are made to last, and that are comfortable.



Last Week's Evening Out. (Outfit Post)

Last week I went to a good friend's birthday at a favorite downtown restaurant. They have amazing pizza, pasta, and salad (all some of my most favorite foods!). It was a cool evening and I had been running errands after work all afternoon and didn't have alot of time to change so I kept it simple and fun.
Madewell Jeans, J.Crew Factory Flannel, J.Crew Booties, J.Crew infinity scarf.

Yes, you can say it - I have a minor obsession with all things Madewell and J.Crew. But after trying so many other jean brands and not finding a good fit, Madewell has again and again fit me in all the right places. (and they are so soft and have the best washes).

Happy Monday, stay warm and dry - if you're in my neck of the woods it's both rainy and cold.


New Year, New Start.


It has been too long - 2 years to be exact since I last posted. I have no better excuse as to why I stopped blogging for the past two years than ...college, working 3 different jobs (at one time), graduating college, moving 1100 miles away last year (and then moving again back to the East Coast) and the start of a new job this past year. By the way, can anyone else believe that it is already February?!

I'm beyond excited to start blogging again - I'm most excited about posting some of my sewing, design and diy projects and of course my ever growing love for all things fashion. You'll see a bit of everything from my life... outfit posts, style tips, my growing obsession for exercising and probably some of my crazy (and amazing) friends will show up.

Thanks to whoever is following along - I'm excited to share with you and in turn to read your blogs!
