Pink Sweaters & Planner Kits


Well, I can't sleep so I'm up super late (or is it early?) working on this post because my mind won't shut down. So instead, I read three articles telling me to get out of bed and do something relaxing that will eventually tire yourself out. Apparently the worst thing you can do is lay in bed with your brain churning. Who knew.

To fair, this ties in nicely with this post. As many of you know, I've been pretty invested in my Erin Condren planner. There are some people who love their electronic calendars and agendas but I learned pretty early on that:

1) I'm not one of those people
2) I hate getting alerts on my phone
3) If I don't write it down, I'm gonna forget about it. Even with an alert.

If you're anything like me and love paper planners, here's how I accessorize my planner with the Planner Society's Box Sticker Kit every month to keep it fun and colorful...

An Easy Friendsgiving

Easy friendsgiving outfit, dress, booties, silk scarf, gold earrings, cheeseboard and crossbody
Guys! I was kindly invited to my first Friendsgiving this year! I'm so excited to meet new friends and keep the old. The number one thing on my mind is, surprisingly, not my wardrobe. It's my contribution! I've been on a recipe hunt for at least a week now. I'm in charge of a side dish and I can't decide between an easy garlic and green bean recipe or corn bread. I'm leaning more toward the green bean route. I'll let you know what I go with.

This outfit is exactly like the title: easy. That's the beauty of Friendsgiving in the PNW, it's a wonderful time to get together but it's not too fancy (unless it's on the invite). My invite was a group text so I know it's going to be a cozy night. More about eating and drinking wine than clothes. Which is totally fine in my book. Come December, I've already been invited to a few Holiday party and Christmasy events!

Baker Boy Hat & Starbucks Stops


What a great and relaxing weeekend! I hope each of you were able to enjoy and take full advantage of the time off before heading back into work. As many of you know (probably via IG), I was able to take a mental health day (MHD) on Friday and it was perfect. I did so much and I was able to focus on all of the things I truly wanted to do, not just the things I should do... which is how I carried my vibes into the weekend.

DIY Moisturizing Oatmeal & Honey Mask

face mask for acne

What a great mental health day yesterday, guys! I did everything I wanted to and had no guilt associated with it. Isn't that the best feeling?

This post is a fun little DIY for those who tend to have acne prone dry skin. This mask always helps moisturize and soften my face. This mask is great for any area of your skin that needs a little softening or exfoliation. For the recipe, check out below!

Happy November!! Can you believe it? Good grief, I can't.

I hope you had an a very happy and safe All Hallows Eve. I went for a long walk and my neighborhood's costume battle was strong last night! Man-o-man, I saw some great outfits. The amount of creativity kids and parents put into their costumes this year was incredible! To be honest, the holiday really snuck up on me this year and we celebrated Halloween last week at work so I'm already full swing into the next two.

Plaid Skirt & Black Cashmere Top

Black Cashmere Sweater, Tweed plaid Skirt, Office Outfit

This is our first rainy Autumn weekend and, boy-o-boy, my sister and I learned something about photoshoots in the rain! First off, I'm a PNWer through and through. Despite the tiny, insignificant fact that I was born on the East Coast, I grew up on this coast. And that means one thing: I don't believe in umbrellas.

I know, silly, but the rain here is different from everywhere else. It's always raining here but our rain doesn't just coming down. Our rain comes at you side ways, down ways, upways and straight-at-your-face-ways! However... photoshoots will here on out require an umbrella because this crazy-curly-haired monster can't withstand 25 minutes in an outdoor shower.

Perfect Pumpkin Muffins

holding a pumpkin and a muffin

Best Pumpkin Muffin

Hello Friends and good morning! I woke up early this AM to get some chores done around the cottage and bake some muffins. Please excuse the no make up and workout gear. I'm having a "me day". A day where I listen to myself and do everything I want to do. Number one: Make Muffins!

This past Summer I did a reflection on how I've been running this blog. I sat myself down and wrote every goal, as well as establish what makes my little creative outlet "successful". One of my top goals is to work on the "Pie" portion of my creativity.

Since leaving Allrecipes (almost two years ago), I don't cook or bake nearly as much and it's something I miss. DEEPLY. I love creating recipes, tweaking old ones and ... let's be real, eating.

With all this said, it is officially my goal to get one, just ONE, recipe on the blog a month. Will this be a challenge I can accept? Oye, I hope so. One of my sisters recently started her own blog about baking. She's on a far greater spiritual journey with recipes than I am. I'm taking baby steps by posting what I'm already making. To be far, I've already written down November's recipe so I hope this is something you guys will enjoy as much as I'm enjoying writing about it.

May I now present: My Perfect Pumpkin Muffins.

Oatmeal Sweater & Baker Boy Hat

oversized fall sweater sitting on steps

Two times a year I have a full wardrobe swap. There are two bins in my closet that rotate twice a year. Once for Summer and once again for Winter. This is a technique I learned from my Mom growing up. It prevents be from over purchasing a new wardrobe every season. This way I can recycle from the previous year.

5 Fall Cozy Cashmere Sweaters

Oh Mondays, whyyyy? Why you gotta be so rude?

I feel like I start every Monday post out with angst. Which is why this post is all about the cozy, soft and comfy material that is cashmere. Something you can curl up in while at work or an afternoon without feeling "fireside frumpy".

Good Sport Grey Hoodie & Favorite Black Leather Jacket

Hello Friends! Anyone else a big walker? I love setting aside time to grab a girlfriend and walk around the lake, the sound or my own neighborhood. There's something so calming and therapeutic about walking through my city in the afternoon.

Grey Sweater & Black Pencil Skirt

Front Outfit Pic

How Fall professional is this outfit, guys? I'm in love with tucked in sweaters and I'm so happy I invested in this one a few years ago. This sweater is one of the only pieces of clothing I've ever paid full price for at Anthropologie. We all know, I'm a frugal gal but I knew if I bought this sweater, it would be my friend for a long long time. As you can see, it's back for another year...

Thrifted Red Leather Jacket & Blanket Scarf

front of outfit

There's nothing more that I love than a thrifted or secondhard leather jacket. First off, it gives something old a brand new life. Two, who doesn't love a gorgeous vintage jacket? 

This jacket screams 1980s Michael Jackson. With it's bright vibrant color, mild shoulder pads and tiny front silver chain zip-pocket. I've spoken a lot about My Staple Black Leather Jacket. You've seen me wear it in a number of posts (I'll put some below for you crazy kids to enjoy). Even though my love is endless for that black zip up, this red guy has a special place in my heart.

Thrifted Blazer & Victorian Top

front of outfit

Another amazing thrift find, friends! I mean, check out this blazer. Love, right? This find was from a local Value Village that I frequent and it was less than $15. Which, is a bargain considering all I did was get it dry cleaned immediately after my purchase.

Cozy & Warm Fall Favorites 2018

Vision Board for Fall

It's been nothing but drizzling here, in our Seattle. The sunrise is later and the sunset is earlier. Soon, we'll be headed into "vampire season", as we affectionately call it. I've been working on this montage for a bit too long, primarily because I didn't know what to call it. At the end of the day I went with Warm & Cozy because that's the vibe I get from my vision picture above. However, it was inspired by a "staycation/me day" concept. Especially after adding that weekend sweater by Barefoot Dreams.

This would be a terrific day in, wouldn't it?

Travel Bug: 48 Hours in Coupeville, WA (Whidbey Island)

Walking on this Shore in Coupeville, WA

Last month, we took a family trip. Nothing but relaxation, family time, adventures in a small town and board game victories! We had agreed to take a long, well deserved, weekend out to Whidbey Island as Summer turned to Autumn. Whidbey is about an hour and a half just north of Seattle. It's an actual island and you can take one of the ferries there. Not taking the ferry results in an additional hour drive but to cross Deceptions Pass bridge is worth it. We, for the sake of time, took the ferry.

The Suzzallo Library & Marc Fisher OTK Boot

Standing on the stairwell

Happy second day of October, everyone! Can you believe it? October already! I swear we were just in July. We're at the University of Washington's library today and it feels like Hogwarts. I'm absolutely in love with the vibe it gives off. Of course, we had to be very quiet!

It's official, BTW, I'm completely gaga over burnt orange and rust this year. If you missed my rustic duster from last week, check that one out. It's slowly taking over my closet.

** Quick Note! Wearing my new ABH's lipstick (Spice) in this post! Mentioned in my Fall Beauty Favorites 2018 post.

My Fall Beauty Favorites 2018 Collage

Hello from rainy, Virginia! This week I'm visiting my cousins and helping one of them nurse a recent surgery. Getting us through this downpour and the chill in the air? Jack Ryan and getting alerts from Nordstrom that my beauty packages have finally arrived at my home in Seattle.

As you guys know, my favorite lists to make for my blog are the ones about beauty. I'm excited to share these ones with you because 95% are cruelty-free and excellent for Fall. Shall we begin?

Ruched Black Dress & Fall Duster

Fall Duster Outfit

"Autumn: The season that teaches us that changes can be beautiful."

Browns, burnt oranges, velvet! A few words to associate fall fashion this year. This duster has a little drama to it. It's something that reminds me of being in a film or have magic powers, when I'm wearing it. Something that gives an extra "umph" to the outfit. It's easy to wear and pairs easily. Even with jeans and a tank.

First Day of Autumn & Apple Picking

holding an apple in the apple orchard

Summer has officially sunset and Autumn is in full rotation! I plunged in, friends. Do you remember last year when I tried very hard to have an Adventure in Apple Picking? But the U-Pick was closed for the season. Well, I learned my lesson and I followed my own advice. I reached out to the farm 2 weeks ago to find their opening date. Guess what today was! That day!

Book Review: Chapter One (End of Summer)

Reading on the porch swing

During my recent trip out to Whidbey Island I was able to finish my summer reading list! Summers used to be a lot earlier to sit and readd. I used to have a lot more down time but since I started my job, last year, this time of year is increasingly harder to stay up and read. In short, this list is small. Over the winter, I want to read two books a month! 

I've decided to start a book review series on this blog. Reason one, to keep me honest but also to keep a record for myself. In the past I started this idea, but only reviewed one book. As you can see from my previous post, I had every intention of reading a book a month and that didn't happen. This time, I've got them written in my calendar, in hopes that it'll keep me on track! 

To start, I want to say that I'm a huge library supporter. If I don't get my books from the library, I try to get them at either a thrift store or borrow them from a friend. It's not that I don't believe in buying books, I definitely do! I will buy them every so often, sometimes even after I've read it and loved it. 

Let's begin. Shall we?

Coupeville, WA & Original Hunter Boots

Walking the Puget Sound in Coupeville, WA
Off to a bit of a slow start today. I'm working, in real time, to get this post live for you guys. Normally I try to work a head but I'm a blogger with a full time job, that isn't blogging, so it gets squished between yoga, junior league and meet ups sometimes. Blogging is my creative outlet and this post is one of the reasons I love to do it. 

My family used to take summer trips all the time. In fact, growing up, we didn't have a lot of extra money. Our family trips involved us stuffing clothes into an over night bag and packing up the ol' suburban for a long drive. Sometimes knowing the destination, sometimes spitting out ideas in the car. We'd pack our discmans and a pile of books, comic books and coloring books. It was normally in the early morning when we were forced to get up but those are the trips I remember the most. They're some of our favorite adventures! 

We're all grown now. None of us kids have children or significant others, at the moment. This summer came and went quickly and it was near impossible to plan a trip but we found one weekend we could all get off so we jumped at it. Destination? Coupeville, Wa!

Shoulder Bow Jumpsuit & French Style Scarf

Julia Jordan Shoulder Bow Jumpsuit Scarf peplumsandpie.com

Welcome to Queen Anne Hill, not Paris. Shocked? The location for our photoshoot was chosen because I have an unnatural obsession with Queen Anne's many and legendary staircases. Exploring Seattle has become a hobby this year. Walking every street in my neighborhood and a few sectors over is my personal challenge. This staircase is attached to the Wilcox wall which was built between 1913 and 1915. Not as old as Paris but regardless, this beautiful wall has seen a lot. Including my latest jumpsuit obsession!

The Versatile Beret

New brooch and old brooch

I suppose I could have named this post "How to change up your beret" but The Versatile Beret sounded like a great chapter of a style book. 

If you haven't figured it out, this is the ultimate swap out! I picked up this Zara beret at the end of winter last year. It was on sale and I didn't like the pin that was sewn onto it. It was missing a gem stone and its also silver, which as we all know, isn't my favorite tone. I'm a gold-tone queen, all the way.

MCQUEEN: FASHION MEETS FILM EVENT

McQueen Documentary Outfit, peplumsandpie.com

Per the norm, I showed up to an event exactly as the invite's dress code suggested "favorite fall trends". Well, did you see my last post on Fall Trends 2018? I'm a walking example of those trends:

1) Leopard - check
2) Hat - check check
3) Long Duster - checkkkkk

I can not be saved from fall fashion. It's my favorite time of year to be stylish and trendy. There are elements and layers you don't get with any other season. This is when real Seattle style shines.

Now, let's get to this amazing event...

Watching the rain, hot cups of tea, snuggly blankets and layering. Lately Fall has been in the air. Maybe it's the smoke that's been tricking our minds into thinking it's the fog. The mornings feel like October and the air is so fresh and crisp in the evenings. This Fall is going to be great, I can feel it!

I Had My First Photoshoot & Here's What I Learned (Part 2 of 2)

I had my first photoshoot. Here's what I learned. Part two // peplums & pie

Welcome to the second half of my first photoshoot! What a fun ride. In my last post, we touched on a 5 key elements I learned on my first ever shoot for my blog. As previously mentioned, maintaining my blog hasn't been the hard part. My creative mind is always moving and the wheels are constantly turning but being able to capture theses moments have been increasingly difficult. Especially this summer. With Fall around the corner and the light fading fast in the morning and night, well, I wanted to come up with another solution since I love my blogging hobby so much. 

I also don't want to let you guy down! So, without much more introduction, here are 5 additional key discoveries I made on my first ever photoshoot.

I Had My First Photoshoot & Here's What I Learned (Part 1 of 2)

Leaning against a wall // peplums & pie

Here at Peplums & Pie, I'm a one woman show but over the past year it's been increasingly difficult to create quality photos. Normally it's me, my tripod and 15 minutes before running out the door to catch the bus. Then there's editing. Which if you know anything about photography, can take a long time when you're not an expert.

So, this past month Peplums & Pie sought out a little help and worked with a local photographer for the first time. If you're a follower, you've probably noticed a huge difference in my photos from Warm Red Sweaters & Distressed Jeans to Denim Dress & Accessories, to my latest White Tank and Striped Beach Pants post. The difference is pretty significant and the organization is surprisingly less because I can actually have the time to organize my outfits and not be running out the door.

With that said, there were also a lot of concerns on my end. Starting with a strange moment of panic and flash backs to senior portraits in high school. Additionally a huge realization that I am not a model. Did I seek guidance and trust in my photographer? Girllll, this is the biggest learning I had from this experience. The answer is: Always trust your photographer.

So here's what I learned:

How to Shop an Anthropologie Sale Successfully

Anthropologie Summer Sale Recommendations and Montage // peplumsandpie.com // Peplums & Pie

This morning, Anthopologie sent an email saying "1000+ NEW Fresh Cuts". At first, my mind went to the trash icon on my phone. To be honest, my everyday job is in Marketing. Not exactly one to fall for copy but the images in the email got me. Anthro always has the best photoshoots.

Long story short, my basket got filled with items! Don't even ask how that happened. But, before just hitting the "checkout" button, I also stopped, took a breath and found not only a strategy but gave myself some ground rules for my morning.

In short, here's: How to Shop an Anthropologie Sale Successfully.

White Tank & Striped Beach Pants

BP square neck tank with breezy beach pant from Mahina // Peplums & Pie

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to work with a local photographer with every intention of writing about my experience but life got in the way. Note to self, July and December equals work-overload. Hopefully that will allow me to cut myself a break in the future. 

This weekend was the first weekend I really celebrated summer. I walked the Discovery Park trails, went on an amazing Electric Boating event with the non-profit I volunteer with and I got to attend a BBQ on the top of a rooftop deck! I love you Summer.

How to Wear all White & Pull it off

How to wear all white and pull it off // Blogger Style //  peplumsandpie.com

I did not mean to take a full hiatus during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this year. So many fellow bloggers posted what they were hoping to get and also shop the sale early. I was one of the unlucky ones that just had to wait my turn. There has been a lack of inventory, I would say, this year than in the past. It's possibly because it was the biggest event yet. What is also is, is incentive to get the Nordstrom card.

Beside the fact that I didn't get everything on my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalog Preview & Favorites post. I was able to snag a few items that I'll share with all of you soon. It's been a busy few weeks but I am looking forward to committing time toward my blog from here on out.

6 Summer Lipsticks

6 summer lipsticks

Round up time! Won't lie, these are always my favorite posts to do. Some are repetitive but, let's just say that they consistently stand out and they're the true MVPs. One in particular I tend to wear all year round, you'll know if you check out my IG. 

My quality of lipstick has changed a lot over the past few years. There are a lot of higher end lipsticks and lip stains in this post, compared to past. It's a weakness recently, especially the YSL matte lip stains. They stay on your lips all day. I've tested them. ALL DAY. They are high end and expensive but worth the one application. 

This may be cheating too but one of these lipsticks was given to me as a sample and, it's beautiful. It's absolutely stunning and it had to go on the list because its one of those samples that stays in my handbag. It's the perfect pop of summer color. It'll blow your mind. 

Let's get right into it, shall we?

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalog Preview & Favorites

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Sneak Peek Preview and Favorites // peplumsandpie.com

Though it tends to be one of the most hectic times of the year for me, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a holiday in and of itself. Its a time where everyone sits down with their snail mailed-in catalog and circles their favorite items like its Christmas circa 1995.  The only issue is, that almost every item is circled so this list needed to be narrowed down a lot.

Happy 4th of July & a Repeat Romper


Happy 4th of July! This is the second year that I've worn a romper for our beloved nation's Independence day. Last year I wore my beautiful Loft black and white number. Oddly enough a few days later my post was featuring this pink romper. This is officially a repeat romper post but styled a little differently. I love going back and looking at old posts. I've come far.

3 Summer Perfumes & How to Choose Yours

Picture of three perfume bottles

As someone who is very particular about perfume, I can understand the hesitation to jump in and buy a new one. Not only are there particular scents that are attractive but there's also a scent sensitivity. Especially with musky flavors. 

How do you go about choosing your Spring/Summer perfumes?

There are a lot of competitive perfumers in today's market. Stopping into places with a wall of aromas can not only be overwhelming but nauseating. So, here are some does and don'ts to finding your perfect eau de cologne.

BeachLunchLounge, three of my favorite words all coming together to create this miracle top. Literally, best brand name ever. There slogan is "throw on and go", which is MY favorite slogan. Pretty sure this little brand and I are going to be best friends.

Father's Day Gift Guide 2018

A father's day guide of gifts, help finding a father's day gift

Father's Day is coming in hot, friends, and I'm here with a quick little guide to help make your lives a little bit easier. This past year, my parents decided to make a huge change and move into a two bedroom apartment complex and live out their younger years all over again. They couldn't be happier in their little place. They went from a 3 door garage, 5 bedroom home with a den to a mere 1,200 sq ft. Impressive right? 

With the downsize, they got rid of a lot. A LOT. My dad is a pretty simple guy. He loves the little things in life, literally. Especially since they've moved. So I stuck to the basics keeping my Dad in mind and also thinking about what my Dad loves, for yours.

Empower Women & High Waisted Black Jeans

empowered women tee with high waisted black jeans
The success of every woman should be the inspiration to another. We should raise each other up. Make sure you're very courageous: be strong, be extremely kind, and above all be humble. - Serena Williams

I'm super lucky. In this life I have the privilege of an amazing support system of women. A team of smart, courageous and independent women that I have the honor to call friends. When advice is needed, I know exactly who to call. When I'm down, there's always someone to kick me and say "you can have this moment but then you need to wash your face and carry on with your day with you head held high".

Yellow Dress & Celebrations

Lush Skater Dress with denim jacket and madewell tote at Pike Place Market Seattle

Oh darling friends, thank you for bearing with me during this crazy month I've had. Have you ever had a time where you're craving nature and can't even think of being in front of a camera or being on social media? That was May. I couldn't help it. It's been beautiful outside and being outdoors, running through trails and trying to take care of myself really took presence.

Boho Vibes & That Black Jumpsuit Again...


Do you ever buy something and you think to yourself "I'm probably only going to wear this once", and then you wear it an average of 1-2 times a week? This black jumpsuit IS that purchase. No other outfit compares. There is nothing so comfortable or freeing.

2017 Seattle Fashion Week & that Jumpsuit (again)

Hello friends! I have so much lined up for the month of May that I might do a post on all of the amazing and exciting activities on my list. It's finally nice out. I didn't even wear a jacket today, never the less sleeves. It felt like bliss.

I'm embracing my floral side since I can't think of anything more appealing than sitting and reading a book in a garden or a park. Being outdoors is all I can think about so I try to bring that mindset to work with me. This floral silky top by Vince Camuto is sold out almost everywhere. I was able to find it at two locations so definitely hurry and grab it before it's completely gone. They do still make this top is solid colors, which I've been eyeing. They're really comfortable, airy, loose and perfect for work days when you really don't want to think.

I got SO insanely sick on Sunday night. High fever, the room was spinning for hours and I could barely move all day. Then I lost my voice on Tuesday and I've sounded like the world most obnoxious squeaky mouse since! Anyone know how long it takes for your voice box to mend?

A well fitted leather jacket investment. Personally, I have three leather jackets but that's for another post. This post is on the essential black leather jacket. Why? It goes with everything! Yet, there are many styles, textures and variations of jackets. Which is why doing your research is important.

Baseball Season & A Casual Monday

Hot dogs, warm summer nights, daylight til 9pm, baseball pants, beer and our Seattle Mariners. That's right, it's baseball season! My second favorite season in Seattle because who doesn't love going to a nice n' easy family friendly event where they allow you to drink in the stands and dance to Macklemore with a moose?
