Oversized Denim Jacket + Life Update

When it rains, it pours. It’s been a pretty insane last 10 days but good insane. Our house finally sold—yay—after sitting on the market for about 6 months. (Longest 6 months ever!) Now it’s lot-searching time, floor plan designing, and all I can think about is white granite counter tops and rustic hardwood. I literally only want to shop for light fixtures and new furniture. It’s like a new all-time high that I just can’t get enough of. I’m super excited to start working in a bit of home building, d├ęcor and DIY into the blog.

Moving on, Brandon just got his real estate license renewed yesterday and is already working up deals. You go, boy! I don’t know if you know this but Brandon’s family has been in the home building business for nearly 30 years, so they’re pros. I’m really lucky to have such talented people in my life building me the home of my dreams. Right now we are in the beginning stages of building a spec home and a custom. So until our home is built, at least I get to decorate other people’s places. If you need a house in the Des Moines, IA area, you know whom to call!

We also have a few other things up our sleeves. I wish I could share more but I can’t just yet. Flat out, we’re busy but it’s good busy. Hawaii is in 3 weeks and I’m definitely looking forward to that!

In the meantime, check out this interview of me on College Fashion. Oh and this week is the last week to get 1 month of baubles FREE from Rocksbox with code: KatelynXOXO

Fringe Jacket + Giveaway

Madewell Clutch (On major sale!) 

I have a serious love affair with fashion. It let's me be who I want to be, whenever I want to be—who doesn't like that freedom!? This weekend I was itching for something that felt remotely close to springtime and sunshine so when this fringe suede jacket showed up at my door it was quite welcomed. Fringe is about to be HUGE this spring and summer so you better start thinking about jumping on that bandwagon. I've been on it for quite some time now because it fulfills my boho/hippie moods I often find myself in. Any who this awesome jacket is from the cutest boutique called The Mint Julep Boutique and lucky for you I'm teaming up with them to giveaway a $50 gift card! Yep that's right. Another Monday blues cure is coming your way! Enter to win the awesome giveaway below. Open to US residents only. The winner will be announced 2/2. Good luck!
