Boots: Kady cognac, Target;
Tights: Target;
Necklace: Caiem, lovely giveaway gift from Lizzy Punch.
How I've worn the dress: here.
How I've worn the sweater: here, here, here, here.

Thank you for all of your support on my last two posts. I read every comment and responded to most of them (on the post). With my dad entry, it felt really refreshing to talk about something I'm not open about with many people, and reading your kind words and thoughts was very humbling and encouraging. Thank you.

  As for the blog adjustments post -- I think change will be good. I've been thinking a lot about a quote from Mad Men in which Don Draper says, "My life moves in one direction -- forward," and I think that's how I'll continue to think about this blog.  As I alluded to previously, I've got a couple projects I'm excited about that will come up in the next month or so, and this weekend I will be changing the layout a bit with the blog. So thank you for hanging in there with me. :) Of course, I'll give updates on Nikki's goings-on as they come.

 Okay, about this outfit. I've already worn this exact outfit before, but these photos were taken after Jeremiah and I went to visit his grandfather, so I wanted to feel good in an outfit that I knew worked for me. The weather was so nice today -- 60 degrees -- that I didn't need a coat. 

Hooray for beautiful weather and the weekend! Have a great one.

signature1 by you.


  1. I love this outfit -- especially the dress!

    Thanks for your comment! You should totally do a makeup post!

    Thanks to blogs like yours, I'm going out of my comfort zone and shopping with a different mindset and it's working. Feeling less 'mommy' in style. LOL.

    Have a great weekend!!


  2. hooray for happy jumping pictures! <3

  3. So cute! I think you've mastered your signature look, you just switch out the pattern of the dress or cardigan, but it still looks so JoAnn! Love it all, especially the necklace ;)

  4. So glad you are going to continue! Can't wait to see the changes! :)

  5. This outfit is so cute and you are so adorable. I'm glad that you're continuing too. Thank you also for being so supportive and not only maintaining your own sweet blog but also leaving so many wonderful comments out there in the blogosphere.

  6. You look beautiful! I love the cardi!

    My father passed away from a sudden heart attack 11 years ago this month. February has been a hard month for me since then. You're right, though, the most important thing is that dash, and to live life to its fullest. I'm glad that grief was an agent of positive change for you.

  7. I love the jumping photo! You are just so adorable.

  8. Love this outfit - the dress, the sweater, the boots. It all works together wonderfully. I'm especially a sucker for cognac boots.
