December is here and it has brought us seasonable temperatures that I just do not like. December, to me, means freezing temperatures and impending snow, but so far, it's just been 40s and clear skies. C'mon mother nature, we're wanting a white Christmas, let's get the ball rolling.

Cozy Corner fireplace mantle stag head horse head mantle decor katielikeme.com




It has been a slow start to this Sunday, but I wanted to share the finished pieces of our new place, being the wall above the couch, the fireplace mantle and the cozy corner.

Tony loves a good papason, so he gladly took this Pier 1 papason from his parents when we moved to our studio over 2 years ago. After a few accidents involving cats and territorial issues, it's back with a new cushion and cats are banned from it. Behind the papason is a blanket ladder, with my favorite cozy blankets draped over it.

On the gallery wall, we have an eclectic mix of things that really showcase who we are. The triangle shelves are from Five Below from about a year ago, the crescent moon light is from Target that I stalked until it went on clearance. The succulent in the large triangle shelf is from Target, and the qhite quartz stone is from Home Goods. The amethyst in the smaller triangle shelf was a gift from Tony from GenCon. The gazelle head with gilded horns, the bunny head and the golden diamond are also from Target and the hat with ears is from eBay way back when, and all the frames are from Meijer from years ago, when they were cents on the dollar on clearance. For real, we bought so many of these. The prints in the frames, the ampersand, the arrows and the "Adventure Awaits" (which you can barely see) are from a gallery wall print book I found in a craft store, but is also available on Amazon, and the pictures of Tony and I are 2 years old now, and need to be replaced ASAP.

The mantle is jam-packed with stuff:  The stag head above the fireplace is from Target from a few years ago, but Target always has these porcelain fixtures. The horse head, or what I refer to it as "the majestic horse head" was something I fawned over for YEARS until the store clearanced it from $45 to $15, but you can find similar ones on Amazon. The copper glitter candle is 3 years old from H&M and will never be burned. The gold frame is from Michael's. The concrete succulents are from Five Below. The string art "T" I made from this piece of wood I found in the Dollar Spot at Target and nails and string I already owned. The big frame is from Meijer, and the smaller "T" is from Michael's. The golden heart, the marble candle holder and the golden vase is from Target and the poorly spray painted silver bunny is from Kroger.

We're not anywhere close to being completely unpacked--we need a bookcase and shelves for our books and for trinkets. Indiana got its first Ikea last month, so we've been making the 10 minute pilgrimage to the cheap furniture and decor mecca to get a tangible idea as to what kind of shelves and bookcases we want. But, we're getting there and I'm just so fortunate to having a loving and supportive fiance who shares the same design ideas.

Autumn has finally arrived here in the Midwest and it's time to bust out the tights. If you've been following me for awhile, you'd know that I am a tight fiend and hoard tights like no other. You thought I liked hats and skirts? You haven't seen a fraction of my tights collection. 



When I was contacted to review Berkshire tights, I immediately said yes. I've reviewed Berkshire tights before so I knew that I could give a truthful and grounded review, which are the only kind of reviews I make. 



Fashion Fishnet Tights, Berkshire, Berkshire tights





Berkshire is one of those brands that when you put on their legwear, you know you're going to be in good hands. I've had these fishnets before and they're so comfortable and so edgy. Fishnets are always so great in early Fall because though they don't offer a lot of warmth and coverage, they still add some visual interest and help to balance an outfit.




Get Skinny Tights, Berkshire, Berkshire tights

Outfit coming soon!

The Get Skinny! tights are great for keeping things in place without restriction. They're cooling, they stay in place, and they have a great balance between sheerness and opaqueness, ranging from 40 to 70 denier.


Easy On Tights, Berkshire, Berkshire tights

The Easy On tights are easily my favorite tights, because, like the Get Skinny!, they don't restrict and they stay up, but they don't fall down and roll down like other tights do. They also come in an array of deniers, so you can easily find your right coverage.

What I love about Berkshire is that they're size inclusive, so everyone can enjoy their tights. I would definitely recommend these tights.

You can check out Berkshire here:

And, if you pick some up, make sure to tag Berkshire with the tags #berkshirelegs #itfitsitflatters #alookforeveryleg


Though these items were sent for free for review, my opinions are my own.

Glasses are necessity for millions of Americans, myself included. I got my first pair at eighteen and not surprising, I still need them to see almost seven years later. But, I love glasses, I love how different they can make a person look and how they can elevate and make a whole outfit! So, when GlassesShop reached out and asked if I wanted to collaborate on a post, I jumped at the opportunity.







I received the Wind Aviator style, and these glasses aren't what I usually go for. They're metal, they have separate nose pads, and they're aviator style, but I took a chance and I really really like them! I like the extra bar that the aviator style lends to these glasses, and the mix of tortoise and gold is lovely! The sides have this sort of ornate gold styling, which is so interesting and unique.



Ordering from GlassesShop is so easy! Find the eyeglasses you want and check out--it's impossibly simple. GlassesShop has a huge selection of frames for everyone, from non-prescription to prescription, they'll have the eyeglasses online that you're looking for. They even have prescription sunglasses!





If you want to try out GlassesShop yourself, you can use the coupon code GSHOT50 to get 50% off all eyeglasses and sunglasses with free lens (excluding sale frames) on the GlassesShop site! I would highly recommend trying out GlassesShop, and for the price, there is no risk.

Do you wear glasses? What style of glasses do you like? I like big lens so I don't see my frames, so I'm definitely interested in your guys' picks!

Sleeping is something we all do, whether we like it or not, so why not make it as comfortable as possible?

I'm a person who loves sleep, but has troubles falling asleep it everything isn't in perfect order. My nighttime routine consists getting myself as soothed and relaxed before I sail off to dreamland.

ZanStyle A Line Skirt // Tie Sleeve Blouse

This cute a line skirt looks so great for office wear, as it's modest bust also trendy--it's like a modern take on an a line skirt. I love it.

ZanStyle A line Mini Skirt // Bell Sleeve Top

A mini skirt paired with a longer sleeve blouse in a darker color makes this a little warmer for those chilly late summer nights.

ZanStyle Cold Shoulder Dress // Sandals

A sweet summer dress like this is perfectly paired with brown wide sandals to bring this white ensemble into Fall territory.

ZanStyle Off the Shoulder Top // Suede Skirt

A great way to keep the summer vibe without looking super out-of-season is to pair your summer item with a different season item, like a suede maxi skirt.




As a plus sized gal, online shopping is really hard when you can't actually try stuff on. I'm in the middle range where I can wear a standard XL in most things and a 1X in plus size. ZanStyle has a decent amount of XL and a few extended sizes to accommodate a range of people. The size guide is accurate, which is great if you measure yourself before buying clothing.

I'm pretty happy with these items and they are great quality. ZanStyle was originally an Amazon store that has branched out to their own site, and that's inspiring to other Amazon sellers. Ultimately, I would recommend ZanStyle if you're into trendy pieces and if you know your measurements well. If you're on the more plus sized spectrum, they may not be the best choice, as there are only a few garments that are extended sizes.

August, to me, marks the start of late summer. Right now, we're experiencing highs in the low to mid 70s here in Indy, so mother nature is agreeing with me. Unfortunately, that is.

I'm a skirts person, and that is incredibly obvious by almost every outfit I have showcased here. I love the free, flowing feeling of a skirt or a dress, and how casual or dressed up you can make them. But, I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy pants every now and then.

I thrifted these jeans for a little over $5 the other day, and they're so comfy, They're originally from Forever 21, which of course means the zipper is terrible and they smell like poor quality jeans, but for $5 and for an every-once-and-awhile garment, I'm okay with that trade off. I paired it with my new favorite top, this bell sleeved off the shoulder top, and I'm in love. I wore something similar to this a few outfits ago, but that shows the reality of me and my style: I'm Katie Lee, the outfit repeater (ala the Lizzie McGuire movie).
