Cold Shoulder Sweater + Link Up



With so many wonderful new faces visiting, I thought it would be fun if we got to know each other a little more.  I'll start...here are 10 random things about me:

1 - I don't really like talking on the phone & never really have.  Besides talking to my hubby during the day and Betsy, I prefer to text or talk in person.
2 - I drink red wine every night.  If not, it's because I'm having white wine or beer instead. 
3 - I have a great memory of where things are in the house.  When the hubby or kids can't find something, I know exactly where it is.  
4 - I like a clean kitchen counter top.  I wipe it with cleaner at least 5-6 times a day.
5 - I have a fear of flying.  Over the last few years, it's gotten worse.  I get so nervous and I'm on edge the entire flight.  
6 - My major in college was Dietetics.
7 - I taught Elementary School before having kids.  I've taught Kindergarten, First, and Third Grade.
8 - I love pizza.  Seriously - we eat it a lot.
9 - I don't like to go under the water when swimming.  I always keep my head above water.
10 - My favorite movie is either 'Pretty Woman' or 'Father of the Bride'.  It's a toss up.  I tear up watching both.

Now it's your turn.  What's one (or more) random thing about yourself?








Sweater: Free People // Jeans: old, try these (sale!) and these (under $60!) // Purse: Rebecca Minkoff // Ring: Nordstrom ($12!!) // Heels: old, similar - Sam Edelman // Watch: Michael Kors //  Sunnies: Exact Tory Burch sold out, very similar Tory Burch // Earrings: Happiness Boutique




This week's feature is Janise of  Mama in Heels.  Seriously stunning!!  Her post last week was on packing for a Vegas getaway but really her tips are great for any warm weather vacay.  I'm planning a Nashville vacation and these tips will come in handy!  How fabulous is this dress!?  I could absolutely see myself wearing this!

Now on to this week's Tuesday Fashion Party Link-Up!!

    1. Thanks Kishina! Isn't that the great thing about blogging - you can "say" anything and feel more comfortable sharing about yourself. Love that!

  5. Always great to learn more about the person behind the blog. Both are great movies - I don't think I have a favorite but I always watch 16 Candles when it comes on tv. Love your pretty sweater!

  7. Love reading these facts about you Katey. I unlike you love to talk on the phone and we are the same for numbers 3 & 4. I don't drink red wine every day but I do love it. Love that gorgeous cold-shoulder sweater and Janise looks beautiful as usual.

    1. Thanks! Yes - it's very soft and cozy. I'm very picky with sweaters. So many are too itchy for me to wear.

  9. What a cute outfit! I love your top and flare jeans. What's one random thing about myself? My husband says I have "cliche dyslexia": I can never remember the correct cliche to use, so I always use the wrong one or phrase it incorrectly.

  11. It is a lot of fun getting to read and know alittle bit more about other people. I enjoyed your list. My random thing would be that I never liked oranges, orange juice, orange fruits in general and I don't own anything orange to wear so yep somehow orange and I don't go together haha!
