WHY THE FINN JUMPSUIT IS A TRUE “EVERYDAY” PIECE

Oh hey, it’s been a hot minute since I published anything on here. If you follow along on Instagram, you’ve likely noticed that the last few months have been quite the whirlwind for my husband and I — we picked up and moved across the country from upstate New York to Northwest Arkansas at the end of April, spent a month living that not-so-glamorous hotel life, and then moved into the apartment of my dreams (more on that and a little tour very soon!).

As much as I’m starting to crave that warm sunshine on my face, I’m also feeling reluctant as signs of spring slowly emerge from the melting ice and snow because I know this will likely be our last winter living in the Northeast … at least for a while.

THE CARDIFF VS. THE LORENA

As I look out the window seeing a blanket of snow covering the ground, with temperatures dipping into the teens later this week, I think it’s safe to say coat season is officially here!
