Classy Ever After...

simplicity in life & style


I am more than ready to delve into spring style, you guys!  Unfortunately, New England weather is not on the same page.   So, for now, we are still doing winter style over here on CEA.  The upside is, many of what I link up is on sale.  YAY!  Quality pieces on sale is never a bad thing and cozy cashmere sweaters are possibly one of my 5 favorite things on the planet.  The other 4?  I would have to say my fam & my bff, doggies & kitties, red wine.... Ok, I don't think I can pick just 5 BUT you guys get the point.  Cashmere sweaters are dreamy and I don't mind a slow start to spring if I can keep wearing them.

Moving on to another style related situation.  I've decided to invest in a good black slip dress this spring, and I've been doing exhaustive research.  I think my heart is set on this beauty by Cuyana

I'm captivated by its understated elegance and the quality Cuyana is famous for.   The versatility of this piece makes the investment totally sensible and I have a wedding to attend this summer for which it will be perfect.  If you have any other ideas about the perfect slip dress, I'm all ears.




Thanks so much for stopping by, and I wish you the best week.  See you Thursday!




Hello, my friends!  I hope you all are feeling enthusiastic about spring {style} and enjoying the simple but oh so significant moments of your lives.

My postings have been sporadic lately, and I know I've been missing out on most of my daily reads.  No apologies this time because I'm accepting how my life unfolds daily.  God is in control just as I ask HIM to be.  Since hubby is working in the office, it is tough to fit everything in, and of course family has to come first.   I've been missing you all and this little blog of mine, and I think I've finally come up with a workable schedule.  Yay!  I'm going to try to post every Tuesday & Thursday.  Hopefully this will keep my creative heart fulfilled, allow me to document what inspires me, share my style journey, and keep in touch with you.

Today, I am sharing a quick update and a bit about simplifying in life and in blogging.

So, I finally won my battle with creme and sugar!  I am now drinking my coffee black.  Whew.  What a battle this was.  It took me about 3 years to go from those toxically- delicious, artificially flavored coffee creamers to coffee mate natural to organic creme & coconut sugar to just organic creme to black!  I feel victorious, you guys!  My diet is clean across the board but my coffee concoctions were my one vice and I always felt guilty about it.  I know...lighten up, lady!  Anyway, I feel like a weight has been lifted and I wanted to share it with you.

Also, I've been focusing on more working out and mixing it up a bit.  I've added more days of weight training in and rotating running, stair climber and elliptical workouts.  And of course...hot yoga which is killer but life changing in the very best way.  Next on my list is a barre class.  Dying to try it!

Finally....We are in the process of adopting another doggie!  I'm so excited.  We are working with two different rescues to find the pup who will love it in our crazy multi pet home.   I can't wait to be able to share pictures of my next baby.

Also, as I place more and more of my focus on simplifying all aspects of my life, it is so clear to me that my blog is taking a different path than many others.  For me this is more of an online diary and a way to connect with like minded, kind hearted ladies.  If there is something that I love and share with you that I can link up to, I may make a small commission but that isn't a large part of this blog.  Honestly, there was a time when I wanted it to be, but I realize it just isn't the natural flow here.  My wardrobe is basic, classic, pretty minimal and I love sharing my tried and trues.  I'm just a regular gal with lots of fur babies, kids, an active lifestyle, fat days, hangovers, breakouts, lazy days, messy house days, Netflix binge days, etc.

That's a wrap guys.   Hope you have a wonderful weekend and thanks for reading.
