Pinned It, Spinned It & Trend Spin Linkup - Free Day!

Happy Tuesday! Did you have a good weekend? Mine was jam packed with a swim meet and homecoming dress shopping. The hubs and I also were able to fit in binge watching the entire season of Stranger Things. Today I'm switching things up and am excited to be co-hosting the Trend Spin Linkup with Laura from Walking in Memphis in High Heels and Erin from The Fashion Canvas!

Fall Fashion Cravings


Hey everyone! I don't normally post on Wednesday's but was browsing fall trends over the weekend and wanted to share some of my finds with you. I recently discovered the company Zaful when I saw Amy Ann's pretty romantic blouse here. Zaful is an Asian based company that offers trendy pieces that are budget friendly and won't break the bank. I'm loving the dressed up boho and ruffles! All of these pieces are under $30 and are perfect to mix with your summer wardrobe to transition into fall! 

What's in My Travel Tote


Hey everyone! Did you have a good weekend? I was in Rhode Island last week for work and was happy to be home for the weekend with my family! Thank you to Katey & Betsy and Tif for guest posting last week. If you missed their posts, you can read them Here and Here!



I travel for work several times a year and have had a few trip disasters where my luggage was lost. It's no fun cabbing it to Walmart, the only store open at 6:00 am, to buy everything from toiletries to clothes. Now for work trips, I pack smarter, lighter and never check my luggage anymore. But, more often than not, the airlines will still check your bag as you are boarding the plane. So, I make sure I have my key essentials in my carry on tote because, you just never know.

Three Random Things - Katey & Betsy, Two Peas in A Blog

A floral dress and a fabulous pair of booties is the perfect way to transition into Fall!


Hi All!!  We are Katey and Betsy - identical twins who write the Fashion and Lifestyle Blog, Two Peas In A Blog.  We talk numerous times a day and love to share our new fun finds with each other.  After following quite a variety of fashion blogs, we decided to turn our love of fashion into an inspiring stylish place and create our own blog so we could share our finds with all of you! We are both working (part-time) moms who are non-stop busy so our style is dressy-casual.

Chicago Staycation


This summer we planned on going to Michigan for a week, then changed it to Lake Geneva and then finally decided on a staycation in Chicago. The Hubs and I really miss living in the city and being able to walk out and have the best restaurants, shops, museums, and theater right outside our door. We knew our daughter would want to go back to school shopping too so we thought it would be fun to stay downtown for the week, and not have to worry about driving back and forth.

So Choix Review

Hey everyone! Did you have a good week and weekend? We came back from vacation on Thursday night and spent Friday evening at my Mom's visiting with my cousin whom I have not seen in several years! Then, I spent the rest of the weekend refinishing my kitchen table! It's been on my to-do list for over a year and checking that one off made me so happy! Speaking of happy, I am so grateful for Jennie and Lee helping me with guest posts last week! I hope that you enjoyed them!
