Trenches Ahead

I was on my way to Katie's apartment after class this overcast morning when I saw a sign amidst road construction that read "Trenches Ahead".  Now that we're bloggers, I thought that would be a totally clever and appropriate place to have today's photoshoot, but I don't know how well that would go down with the construction workers/rest of traffic.

I suppose the lush green trees weren't that bad of a backdrop for today's outfit photos!

On Katie- jacket: Nordstrom; shirt: Goodwill (then monogrammed!); jeans: Gap; flats: Steve Madden

On Courtney- trench: Banana Republic

blouse: jcp; jeans: Gap; loafers: Goodwill

watch: Michael Kors; necklace: Kate Spade
 Embracing true St. Louis style in the words of Reese Witherspoon, "My rule is, if it's not moving – monogram it."

watch: Macy's

Promptly afterwards we scooted our booties to Hy-Vee for a much needed brunch of pancakes, fruit, eggs, bacon, and iced coffee!  Afterwards it would've been ideal napping weather but we're adults now (sigh), and class/work called.

If only accounting homework could be as fun as blogging.

Courtney & Katie

P.S.- If college boys see you taking blog pics, just keep calm and carry on. Not awkward at all.


  1. Thanks for the sweet comment today Courtney!

  2. You ladies both look adorable! There is nothing more classic than a trench! Great investment!


  3. I really like the idea of monogramming a thrifted shirt! I just ordered a plain ole short-sleeve button up on sale at Lands End and the monogramming was only $6 ... I couldn't resist :)
