First Feeling of Fall

An outfit consisting of a black wide brim hat, an ochre linen baby doll dress, brown tote bag and brown d'oray flats.

Fall is here and Mother Nature has had temps in the 60s and you already know I'm in love. I thrive in colder weather.


Planning a Small Wedding in 5 Months

invitation, flatlay

Tony and I got engaged in May 2017. We didn't start planning a wedding until June 2018. The date we chose? November 9th 2018. 5 short months later.


Who Am I? And, How Did I Get Here?

Who am I and how did I get here?

I'm Katie--sometimes Kate, rarely Kat--but always Katie. I'm a mid-twenties millennial mingling in the Midwest US, who loves hats, scarves and tights. The middle parts are debatable and always changing.

When I'm not binging watching competition cooking shows, I'm usually grocery shopping (a hidden pleasure of mine), singing to every song I know that plays, and looking up apartment prices of another city. What's hometown love if you don't love somewhere else, too?

So, how did a girl like me end up in a place like this?

This isn't my first blog rodeo. I blogged on Katie Like Me for 7 years, and Tumblr for 9. I've Livejournalled, I've Blogspotted and I've Wordpressed and here I am! Doing it all over again!

Why a new blog?

You know when you start a job and you have endless optimism for you and that job's future? And, then, as you go along, you fall out of love with the job, and you decide to get a new one? That's what this is. Same job, different company. Or, different blog, same company.

I'm happy you stopped by, I hope you stay awhile!
