From Here to Maternity

By Monday, May 22, 2017 24

I've been keeping a little big secret, but it's time to share...baby Brandon is on his/her way and expected to arrive at the end of November! The morning I discovered I was pregnant was literally the day we were to fly out from the States for Amman, so talk about a whirlwind of emotions! I ...

Striped Tunic & White Jeans

By Friday, May 19, 2017 5

Happy Friday, friends! This week has flown by but I'm not complaining. Since it's 'Saturday' over here in Jordan, we are about to head off on our first road trip out of Amman. Our car still isn't here yet, but some of our friends have been gracious enough to let us borrow theirs for the day ...

Striped Pants for Summer

By Wednesday, May 17, 2017 12

One of my personal fashion philosophies is that you can never have too many striped pieces, especially during warm weather months. It's so easy to achieve a fresh, summery look just by putting on striped pants and adding a crisp white shirt and sandals (straw hat optional).At less than $20 these culottes were a no-brainer: not ...

Happy Monday and I hope you all enjoyed the weekend, especially if you celebrated Mother's Day! Unfortunately I couldn't actually be with my mom, but I did get to talk to both she and my mother-in-law on the phone yesterday. Living with a seven hour time difference between us definitely makes it tricky to find a ...

Black & White Gingham Top Under $50

By Wednesday, May 10, 2017 14

Although it may not officially be summer, it sure feels like it in Amman right now. It's been in the high 80's/low 90's and not showing any sign of slowing down soon. I guess I'm getting my first taste of the desert climate! Luckily it does cool off a lot in the evening, though, and ...

High/Low Hem Dress for Summer Events

By Friday, May 5, 2017 5

Happy Friday, everyone! It's extra happy for me because we received a small shipment of our stuff yesterday---whoo hoo! We've been living out of suitcases for the last month so if you're wondering why I've had the same shoes, bags, etc. on repeat, that's why. Blogging-wise, I'm especially thrilled to have my iMac computer again ...

Day Trip from Amman to Iraq Al Amir

By Monday, May 1, 2017 8

Happy Monday and I hope you all had a great weekend! On Saturday, we were able to take a day trip to Iraq Al Amir, an area just outside Amman that's known for its ancient ruins and cave dwellings. These ancient ruins were originally part of the Qasr Al-Abd (Palace of the Servants). They've been partially ...
