{Top Ten} May

Hi friends, and happy Monday! We arrived back home last night, with an extra 10 pounds, and a memory card overflowing with stunning pictures and experiences I can't wait to share. It's surreal to think yesterday we were cruising the Sea of Alaska, and today I'm back in an office. #pitypartyofone

And no way it's June 1st. How the heck does each month fly by faster than the last? It seems like just last week we were taking the obligatory first day of school pics, and now we're four days away from having a high-schooler and fourth-grader! #gulp 

Our May was jam-packed with travel, spring style, and house updates. In case you slept through Spring, here's the {Top Ten} posts of the past month.

The warmer the weather, the simpler my outfits seem to get...
so I love the added pattern and color a fun scarf can add. This little picture tutorial
shows how I tie and wear scarves year-round.

The {One Room Challenge} was a hectic six weeks, but we came out the other side
with a fully decorated Master Bedroom. See the reveal here, and the full source list here.

We celebrated Mother's Day with a Family Date Night.

The Kips Bay Showhouse is chock full of amazing inspiration.

Packing posts have quickly become one of your favorites, so I shared what I packed and wore 
on a recent girl's weekend.

Volume 13 of Sugarplum Style showed some of my everyday outfits for Spring.

With the last day of school around the corner, I shared some simple, yet thoughtful, 
gifts you can DIY for the teachers in your life.

Most everything in my closet will transition from Day to Night...including party dresses!

The final pieces of the Kitchen Reno arrived, and they are glorious.
Now to find time to shoot the full reveal!

And finally, we started Dressing Room Diaries...a new series showing you
real clothes on a real girl.

June is set to be a another doozy as we celebrate my sister's wedding in Montana, start a new room makeover,  re-cap our trip to Alaska, and hopefully, share the finished Kitchen! I hope you'll follow along! Happy Monday, lovebugs...I have a mountain of laundry and a bunch of catch-up in my future...I hope your day is more interesting. 

If you're new around here, or playing catch-up, here are some good places to start:

{Top Ten}


  1. Welcome home! I loved all of your instagram photos and can't wait to see the rest!! My daughter officially starts summer vacation today and has a few weeks before she gets busy again so I'm hoping to do some fun things with her!

  2. Hi! Welcome back! I just have to say -- you have the best style! I always love seeing what you wear. Have a great week!
    "The Busy Brunette"

  3. You've had a busy month mama! The dressing room pic of John is going to be on a canvas in my house somewhere. I hope that's not weird. :)

  4. Time is flying by, I is it June??? Can't wait to see the pictures from your trip. Sounds heavenly.

  5. Love the Top 10! I thought I made a point to never miss one of your posts, but somehow I missed the packing for NYC one. Love your go to dress and how you pulled it together for both day or night. I just ordered one in black and hope that the fit is as flattering on me as it is you :-)

  6. i luv them all! keep it up and them coming

  7. Hi! I'm leaving in a couple of days for what seems to be the same Alaskan cruise that you went on (same excursions too) and would LOVE to see your packing list/suggestions since I am torn about what to bring! Any suggestions you have would be awesome!

    1. Hi Anon! I'm so excited, and a bit jealous, of your trip! I'd love to go back tomorrow!! I'm planning a packing post, but I can't get it together before your sorry about that!! It's the last week of school, and I'm slammed at work from being gone, so my week is crazy. Just check the weather in each of the ports for an idea of the temps. I took lots of light layers, and just put them on and off as the day dictated. The only time I was cold was the morning of the Tracy Arm Fjord (but you're on the boat), and on top of the glacier for dog sledding. I was fine with a silk underwear shirt, long sleeve tee, fleece vest, and windbreaker-type jacket. Most days we were actually warm!! As for the ship, anything goes for 'at sea' days...and dinners are dressy for two nights, and 'date appropriate' for the other nights. Have so much fun!!!


Your comments are like popcorn with milk duds, I just can't quit them. Thanks for taking the time to share your positive thoughts! xoxo, cass
