For This Feast Our Lady of Lourdes

Full disclosure, I pulled this tablescape together at the very last minute. For days, I have been refreshing the tracking information on the perfect Marian-inspired tablecloth that I was dreaming of using for an Our Lady of Lourdes shoot. Well, it’s on a USPS truck somewhere out there, and I didn’t decide until this morning […]


Beige pointed toe flats

At this time last year, I was prepared for a few months of keeping my outfits minimal and extra-cozy, being 38 weeks pregnant and bracing for the tricky season of postpartum dressing at the time. I certainly didn’t anticipate that some fancier pieces would still be hanging in my closet untouched for this long! Almost […]


The cutest printable valentines from Fernandina Paper Co.

I have been thinking a lot this week about how much what we do now can have a beautiful, long-lasting impact on our lives. For example, I’ve been meeting with a small group of women every month for over two years. We’ve studied encylicals, papal letters, and books together, encouraged each other through the ups […]


Something Pretty February Edit

I haven’t been very inspired when it comes to writing Valentine’s Day posts. At this point, I think we’ve all seen enough at-home date ideas to last for years. Dave and I don’t exchange Valentine’s Day gifts, so a gift guide doesn’t feel quite right. A little piece of me is just eagerly anticipating writing […]


Bow earrings

The arrival of February 2021 brings me back to a handful of other months–namely, February 2020, when we were eagerly awaiting Azelie’s arrival, and September 2017, the month we celebrated Charlie’s first birthday. I’m continually astounded by how much my kids mark the passage of time so impactfully and undeniably. Even through those seemingly endless […]


& Other Stories mockneck sweater and boyfriend jeans

A few years ago, an online friend, Nicole Caruso, reached out to me with this question: “What does #worthyofwearing mean to you?” She had recently started posting makeup tutorials, style inspiration, and beautiful messages of encouragement for women using that hashtag and it was taking off like wildfire. Charlie was two at the time, and […]


Floral personalized stationery

This post was sponsored by Basic Invite. Thank you SO much for your support of the brands that support Something Pretty, helping me to do what I love even more! I head out to the mailbox every afternoon, often with Azelie on my hip and Charlie running after me in his bare feet. Over the […]


Blue and white vintage tea cups

I am a little bit tempted to make this week’s Love List say “children’s Tylenol, the pediatrician, coffee, Door Dash, and Puffin Rock” and call it a day. While I have certainly been appreciating all of those things this week, this series is not about survival mode. It’s about whatever is adding joy and beauty […]
