Light Layering Jackets

It’s Friday! We’ve had a nice week of the typical routine, which was good after a very fun and full weekend last weekend. Justin’s side of the family came to town and we celebrated my middle son and my nephew’s birthday since they are both in early February. It was a great weekend, and we were even treated to warm and sunny temperatures on Saturday.

This weekend holds a whole lot of nothing, which will be good because Justin and I leave for our ski trip next week. I cannot WAIT. I think about it every single day. My folks are coming to stay with the kids and they are elated about that. Justin and I specifically time these trips over school weeks to make things easier for everyone, and I hope that is the case for this trip. It’s been 2 years since we’ve returned to Park City, one of my favorite places to visit.

Recently Amanda, Bridget, and I got together for some focused brainstorming and troubleshooting of all things Small Things. From the newsletter to LTK to YouTube, we covered a ton of topics and have a lot of things in the works to update and tweak this year.

One of those is the monthly newsletter! We’re beefing it up a bit and adding in helpful bits of info, insider scoop that can only be learned via the newsletter, and more. Sign up here to be the first to receive the newest newsletter!

I’m eyeing this new tank at Spanx! I love a rounded hem!

These sneakers are so cute! I love an all-white sneaker, esp with a chunky sole that isn’t TOO much of a platform.

Been following you for 10+ years — came for the hair tutorials and now, I’m confused. Why do you blog just a list of stuff? Why do you post stock photos? The stock photos also seem to not connect to the content of the blog, but that goes back to my original question. Why do you keep writing a blog if you mostly don’t answer reader questions?

Kate says · 02.18.24

Hey Paisley, let me know if you have a question! You can also email 🙂

Kate says · 02.19.24

you avoided that question quite nicely……maybe because you know she’s right? This blog is no longer what it once was.

No one is forcing you to read it. Perhaps a better time spend for you is exploring blogs that are more aligned with what you’re looking for. Be well.
