Great Investment

Hey y'all! In case you're new here (I have been gone for a year), my name is Lindsey and I appreciate you stopping by to read. I live about 30 miles from Memphis, TN. I'm a nurse in a busy NICU 3 nights a week. I am moving to the Atlanta area in the Spring so if you're from the area I'm going to need some new friends. :)

My blog is in a "construction phase." In a few weeks there will be a new name and design so bear with me. I enjoyed blogging in the past but when I went back to work full-time I had issues balancing it into my life. So here I am giving it another shot. 

I am absolutely NOT a fashion blogger nor do I plan to be. If you want to check out an awesome one my SIL is a fashion blogger at Walking In Memphis In High Heels. She works really hard and is good at what she does. I'm not sure what category I fit into. If I had to choose it would be Lifestyle blogger. 

I've followed Carrie for a while now on Instagram and I've seen her link up "What Wives Wear" and it seems fun so I thought I'd stop by meet some new people and wear some of my favorite pieces that I never wear. I usually only wear leggings, t-shirts, UGGs, and scrubs to work because I rarely leave my house on off days. How lazy! 

A few months ago I saw this Herringbone vest at Posh Boutique. J. Crew makes a similar one like I can afford that! Ha! Since I rarely spend money on myself I asked my mom to get it as an early Christmas gift. Of course she got it for me and said not to count it towards Christmas. Gotta love moms! 

It's such a great piece to have and goes with so many different things. You can wear it as a dressy or causal piece. I didn't think I would enjoy it so much but it's what I wear almost every time we go out. Today I wore it with a pink chambray shirt that I searched high and low for but my SIL found it. It happened to be marked down like 75% for Black Friday. Yay! I wore skinny jeans and black leather boots. 

I love these boots as well. I love them so much that I have a pair in brown too. They are comfortable enough for shopping and travel.

Where to get this look...

Wishing everyone the best in 2015. Happy New Year! Thank you again for stopping by! 

God Life Happy Wife


  1. Gimme the details on those boots! I've gotta retire my black boots. Probably should have like a year ago hah

  2. I am so glad to see you back, my friend!!!! I look forward to hearing from the outfit by the way. Happy New Year

    1. Thank you, Kay! I appreciate it. I hope you will share your Nicaragua experiences on your blog again. Happy New Year!

  3. Thanks so much for linking up and for following me on IG! I really enjoy your SIL's blog and find it so fun when relatives are bloggers! No one in my family blogs, except for me. I have been wanting a herringbone vest for awhile and I just love yours! I have a fashion link up each week, but I see myself as more of a DIY/crafting blogger... I just happen to love fashion, too! Good luck with your move and I hope to see you back again on WWW!!

  4. Very cute! I Love the plaid and herringbone. I would never have thought to pair it. Looks great!
