// Honey + Berries

Happy Monday, friends! I woke up to a whole lot of gloom and rain this morning, but that's the perfect excuse to snuggle back under the covers once I finish writing this. Mike has come down with something awful (please don't let it be the flu!) and I didn't get a wink of sleep last night, so I'm running totally on fumes. Goodness knows I have plenty I should be doing but I'm looking at the rain as the universe's way of saying "Take care of yourself. Get some rest." Haha (Even if that is a stretch!) Anyway, outfit posts around here have been few and far between thanks to the weather. I'm not a fan of the cold and this latest stint we had with -1* temps was just too much for me. I know that's nothing compared to a lot of places, but that's definitely something for Tennessee. Luckily this weekend we saw temps dance around in the 50's. It felt warm enough to go sans tights for a little while!

This is what I wore on Saturday (and Sunday... and I maybe slept in the dress, too. Hey, I don't claim to be perfect.) I've been in love with this dress from ModCloth for a while now and I'm so glad I was able to snag it before it sold out. It's so comfortable and the length is perfect! Not to mention the lace-esque top and mustard color are my favorites. I managed to pick up a few cardigans like this one at Target a week or so ago for fifty percent off! They were only $12! The little chain detail definitely classes them up a bit, too. I broke out a few accessories I hadn't worn in a long time and even opted to wear a quartz necklace Mike and I made (for Honeybean). And lipstick! I wore lipstick! I felt more put together this weekend than I have in months, just disregard the greasy hair haha. Oh and then there's this coat... This coat is what dreams are made of. Despite it being a gift from Free People, it's by far the most heavenly coat I've ever owned. It's gorgeous, and so warm! I wasn't sure if I'd love it at first because it's a completely straight silhouette (and I'm not) but it's perfect. It runs a little big (mine is a size 8, for reference) but I have no complaints at all. I get so many compliments on it when we're out and about.

Yesterday I was able to drop in on Lauren + Jenna's birthday lunch at Woodlands. It's an Indian vegetarian restaurant on West End. I had never had Indian food before and I'm naturally skeptical of everything, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was quite delicious! It was nice to see a bunch of my favorite ladies again and just hang out for a few hours. I think there were 9 of us there total if I'm not mistaken. I'll have to do a proper introduction of all the Nashville gals soon. Y'all would love them, I'm sure. I hightailed it home shortly after and spent the evening laid out on the couch watching Grey's Anatomy with Mike. He hardly ever gets sick, so when he does, it's usually pretty gnarly. I'm hoping whatever it is will pass soon (and not spread to me or Toby!) because he's downright miserable. I hate seeing him so sick :(

Today I have several signs to get busy painting (Valentine's Day orders are currently shipping! Email for details and rates!) and a calendar that needs planning! We have some really fun Him + Honey shoots coming up so hopefully I can share those once the film gets processed! Hope it's warm wherever you are! xo

PPS; How adorable is Hazel sneaking into several of the photos? She's one lovable little creature. We're still trying to find homes for all of the kittens, but Hazel is the only one who is socialized, so it's proving sort of difficult.


  1. Oh my, looks like everyone getting sick. Its a super nice day today here in Toronto. Like, I regret not wearing a dress to work. But its supposed to be kind of nice all week, until the weekend.
    I love the last picture, makes me miss having a cat around.

  2. I LOVE the color combo you have going on here! The berry and mustard colors just go so well together! I saw all the cardi's on sale at Target too. Wish I'd snatched more up, but oh well...

    And I totally know what you mean about the cold. One of my blog goals for this year was to start doing OOTD posts, but I'm a southern girl who live in Pittsburgh now. And let me tell you, the -35 degree weather is a VERY unwelcome change! Yuck! Maybe as spring starts to roll around...

  7. This is a gorgeous outfit; the colors go so well together. The coat is so beautiful and what a wonderful present!!!!

  8. Cute colour combination going on here! Luckily for me we still haven't had a real winter yet, I think the first time below zero was yesterday but it was gloriously sunny so it kind of makes up for it! I'm still waiting on my snow :(


  9. So good to see you yesterday. Glad I wasn't the only newbie to the whole Indian food thing. I loved it even though I wreaked of curry all the damn day. I was in a movie later and kept smelling it on my sweater! I loved it though!

  10. I love how autumnal it looks - my favourite time of year. We're getting a kitty soon and I kind of lost it looking at your photos. SO CUTE.

  11. What an unusual dress! I love how it goes with your cardi.
    And good Lord what a fantastic coat, those colours are so rich!

  12. Oh my goodness that last picture of you and your snuggly kitty is seriously the cutest thing ever!

  13. I don't know what I love more - the cardigan, the coat, or the kitty! Too precious! I hope your husband feels better soon, I just got over a terrible cold - but thankfully neither my husband or daughter got it!


  14. That coat is perfection and the final picture with your kitty is adorable. My manfriend got the flu last week and it was dreadful, I hope that Mike gets better soon!

  16. Love these photos- especially with Hazel! She looks like such a sweetie. Glad to hear you liked Indian food on your first try. I didn't know what to think of it at first, but it's one of my very favorites now. SO good.
