    I have those Freda D’Orsay Sneaks and love them, but they give me the worst blisters. Did you have to break yours in at all? Hoping they work out b/c they were an investment. Love all these looks!

  2. Michelle J says:

    Thank you for the recommendation on the who what wear black overalls. They are amazing!!

  3. Katie says:

    Love all of these 😍 Those rain boots are so cute!! Do they run TTS for you!?

  4. I love all of these outfits! Super into your overalls with the blouse and combats boots— it’s so good and looks fresh!

    The Social Dilemma was really thought provoking, no? I have colleagues who work closely with FB/IG and none of them have these accounts because the data capture and tracking (the details of which they’ve seen behind the scenes) is disturbing. It’s something for consideration, for sure.
    Beyond that, I think being more intentional with social media is something we could all benefit from so I say “kuddos” to re-evaluating and reworking your interactions. I’ve followed you since you really only had a blog and love to pick up tips here and there.
    I appreciate your continued content and am platform agnostic. Glad you are doing well.

    • Natalie says:

      Thank you! The Social Dilemma really got me thinking so much and it’s clearly progressed to where I’m making some major career changes as a result. And it feels so good! The next one I want to watch on a similar topic is Childhood 2.0. Have you seen that one?

  6. Candace says:

    I love the round up and the newsletter. That growth quote was really thought provoking and aligned with a lot of things I have been thinking lately. Thanks for the great content!

  7. Katie says:

    Those rain boots are so fun 😍 Were they true to size for you? Love seeing all of your outfits!

  8. Ainsley says:

    Love 💕

  9. Alex says:

    Hi Natalie! Love seeing all your outfit posts in one place. I really loved your style videos on IG too, so excited to see how you work those in here. 🙂 I love the pom pom sweater! Such a reasonable price compared to some other options I was considering. How would you describe the material? Itchy at all (I see it’s acrylic and wool). Thank you!

  10. Katy says:

    Hi Natalie! I love all of these looks. I am hoping to purchase the Jenni Kayne Fisherman Sweater—but am struggling with size. I think we have a similar build and I am curious if you purchased an extra small or small? I know it says “true to size”—but I can often wear both sizes depending on the brand and this will be my first purchase from JK! I appreciate the insight and the discount code ❤️

    • Natalie says:

      If you’re looking for a more relaxed, casual fit, I’d go with the small. For a more fitted look, the XS will be better. I find that the JK sweaters loosen up a bit with wear, too. Hope that helps!

    • Keyva says:

      Hey, I love your elegant yet comfortable style. Really beautiful!

  11. Leeanne says:

    Love all of these outfits and the weekly roundup posts!! Please also continue to share style videos on the blog if possible 🤞. Love your blog so so much ❤️

    • Natalie says:

      Yes! I plan to still do style videos and embed them here on the blog for you guys. Just need to get a bit more settled at the house so I have a good spot to film — hoping to get that done sooner rather than later!

  12. Lydia says:

    I love your Friday overall look! (And all the others) ✨

  13. Madeline Begin says:

    I love this weekly round up of what you wore each day! Great outfits! Feeling very blah here in Canada as we’re still in lockdown and I haven’t gotten out of sweats for 6 weeks!!

  14. Laura says:

    I also discovered your blog via Pinterest, and I love it! I like that I have found new places to shop, but I really love that I have found new ways to style pieces that I already own. I am not on social media, so I am very excited that I won’t miss anything by only following the blog. Thank you so much for sharing your journey!

  15. MJ says:

    I’m so happy with the shift you’ve made, it benefits me. The Social Dilemma really impacted me as well. I first found you via a Pinterest post which lead me to your blog when Jack was an infant. Currently wearing one of your original necklaces (taking a little break between clients), needless to say I love what you put out there and happy for the content to be here. Thank you!

  16. Kim says:

    Hi Natalie,
    I have a couple questions for you. I am on the look out for a slightly oversized white shirt. The one I currently own is a bear to iron and even after it’s ironed it still is full of wrinkles. Is the AYR white shirt easy to iron? I have a petite frame – would the shirt overpower me?

    The description of the ABLE ruched puff sleeve tee states that it is semi fitted. Can you tell me just how fitted it is?

    Last question, how would you compare the Jenni Kayne cotton fisherman sweater to the cashmere fisherman? Are you wearing the oatmeal color in the picture?

    Thanks for all the information. I look forward to your weekly emails.

    Kim Roshek

    • Natalie says:

      I love the AYR one! I honestly don’t ever iron mine, but if it gets really wrinkly I’ll use a steamer on it. It’s so soft and light and has held up well in the wash (I do wash it on low and line dry, but I bet you could dry it on low, too). If you’re petite, you may want to size down since it’s a boxy fit.

      The ABLE shirt is definitely a semi-fitted top. I got my usual size since I tuck it in and want a close fit, but if I wasn’t going to tuck it in I think maybe a size up would’ve been good.

      For the Jenni Kayne sweaters, the fit is identical, but obviously the material is different. The cotton one is the most practical if you ask me, since it can be worn year-round in a mild climate like where I am. The cashmere one is soft and comfy and a lovely option for cooler weather, but if it’s remotely warm out I can’t wear it. My cotton sweater is the oatmeal color.

  17. Kels says:

    Love not having to get on Instagram! any past styling tips on joggers? I’m looking for some style ideas for that time of the month when tight things around the waist are just a no go.

  18. Kristen Morizio says:

    How’s the sizing on the Pom Pom sweater?

    • Natalie says:

      Their sizing is pretty flexible and I got what I’d consider my “usual size” in most clothes. If you’re especially petite I’d size down though.

  19. Monica says:

    Love all the outfits! Can you share jewelry links as well? I loved some of the jewelry you were wearing in early January and forgot to save the links! Thanks!!

  20. Brandi Smrekar says:

    Always love you style info! Thanks for sharing!

  21. Diane says:

    I love seeing all the weeks outfits in one place-so great! The blog is such a calmer/ more mindful place, if you know what I mean. It’s great to be able to instantly pin any of your great pieces that catch my eye as well. Thanks

  22. Emily says:

    Loving all these outfits. Thanks for always sharing great style inspiration. Going to replicate the black overalls look for my outfit today!

  23. Melanie says:

    Loving reading your blog posts. Those black overalls are my fav on you!

  24. Diane says:

    Great outfits this week ! I couldn’t decide about the sweater until I saw it on you
    You look great, moving agrees with you

      • Courtney P. says:

        Love this way of seeing your weekly outfits! Is there a way to communicate your sizing recommendations? That was always SUPER helpful and accurate for me in your Instagram clips. Thanks so much!

        • Natalie says:

          Oh yes, good call! I can definitely add in sizing tips and even more descriptions to the outfits to make these posts more helpful and more similar to my daily outfit videos on Instagram. I may even experiment with more video that I can embed here on the blog. I feel like this will be an evolving series, haha.

  25. Hannah says:

    LOVE the black overalls look. I have the same ones but struggle to find ways to wear them in the cooler months — this is perfect!

    • Natalie says:

      Yes, I love them in the winter! This was my first time pairing them with combat boots and I’m very into it. It was pretty perfect for a rainy day, too.
