Screen Shot 2014-11-25 at 1.43.05 PM

Earlier this summer, I was told that I was a finalist for StyleBlazer’s 50 States of Style feature, and that they had selected me as ‘most stylish’ in Iowa! A huge honor to say the least to be included with 49 other stylish, and kick-ass bloggers! The feature is now live so make sure to head over here to the interactive map to find out more about why I started blogging and where I find my style inspiration!


TBO Gets Married: Grey Likes Wedding Feature

It’s here! I’ve waited a long six months to share these images and will continue to share them over the new few weeks as I dive into the end of my wedding planning details and reveal how everything turned out for the big day! Head over to Grey Likes Weddings for more photos and our wedding video!

I want to give the biggest thanks to Aly Carroll Photography for capturing our special day and to Katherine Mendieta Photography for our studding video. I can’t help but watch it and tear up, laugh, and smile as I watch our wedding day all over again!

For good measure, here are a few more of my favorite shots!

Another weekend look to showcase on the blog today. I picked up these new booties at the store opening of Matilda Muse (I wore a few different looks from them here & here) and put them on with my new White Plum Boutique sweater that I’ve lived in the last few days. This sweater is the right amount of cozy and warm but easily layered over long sleeve tees and t-shirts. In addition to sharing my latest look from White Plum (see when I partnered up with them on my honeymoon this past summer here), I’m giving you a chance to win $50 to White Plum Boutique, the perfect excuse to help you find the perfect look for Thanksgiving! Enter the giveaway below, you have until next Monday, November 17th to enter! Good luck!

Giving Looks Good On You: TOMSxTarget

Halloween is over which means it’s just the right time to start planning for the holidays! This season, let’s get back to basics and remember what the true holiday spirit is about—giving back and creating joy and simplicity. I’m excited to promote Target’s latest brand collaboration launching November 16th, TOMS for Target. This limited edition collection includes accessories, clothes (even for kids!), housewares, and of course, shoes!

The Brunette One Toms for Target_2

In true TOMS’ fashion, the TOMS for Target collection will carry on one-for-one, for all. That pair of shoes you want to buy your kid brother? Another pair will be donated to someone in need. A stylish, cozy poncho for your aunt…one blanket will be donated via the American Red Cross. A week worth of meals on behalf of Feeding America will be donated with the purchase of a chambray top, which never goes out of style. So, let’s start making those lists and checking them twice!

The Brunette One Toms for Target_1

The Coffee Addict –  Make sure to include a package of coffee beans or a French press with their new mugs!

The Outdoorsy Person – Include instant hand wamers and chapstick for those snowbirds

The Note-taker – Don’t forget to add these gold paper clips and pens!

The Athlete – Inside the water bottle, make sure to tuck in a headband, sweat band, or even a Fitbit!

The Fashionista – Give this trendsetter an extra reason to show off her new bracelet with a new shade of nail polish and lip stick all wrapped up in a TOMS for Target clutch!

The Instagram-er - Print off a favorite photo from their Instagram feed and frame/wrap it up!

The Tiny Tot - Every child needs a pair of snazzy shoes!

All items are under $50, so this budget friendly collaboration won’t leave you with a guilty conscience as you treat your friends and family to something special! My top favorites include leather-look slip on TOMS, a reminder that it’s the little things in life with this bracelet, and a beautiful candle for my home.
