Spring Tweed

I hope everyone has been enjoying 2018! It seems like just yesterday I was writing about the new year, now here we are, weeks away from March. We have had some exciting developments in the Renbarger household over these past few weeks...I am moving to Germany!

4 Years of S&S

Oh my gosh, where have the last 4 years gone?! Four years ago today, I launched this little blog. I had no idea how much I would love blogging, how many amazing people I would meet, and NEVER did I think I'd keep up with it for four years. It has given me focus when I've needed it, given me a creative outlet when I've craved it, and given me a few sleepless nights when I've unnecessarily stressed about it. By most standards, I'm a very small fish in a big pond of blogging. But I am so proud of it and the journey on which it has taken me. It's fun. It was fun then and it's still fun now, so I'm going to keep going as long as I'm enjoying it (Instagram algorithm be damned). 

I thought I'd spend a few minutes (which turned into almost 2 hours) going through some of my old posts. This one above was from 2014 and one of my favorites at the time. I still wear that Kate Spade jacket every spring! Some of the looks are a bit cringe-worthy now, but at the time, I was so proud of each and every post. It's so fun to look back and see my transformation as a professional, as a girlfriend/fiance/wife, and as a self-proclaimed stylist at heart. I hope you enjoy looking back at some of my favorite looks!

Warm & Cozy

Well. It warmed up for a minute. One minute. Then it went back to freezing. But at least we have had some sun sprinkled in there. The cold isn't what really gets to me in the winter, it's the dark and the grey. My mom went down to South Carolina right after Christmas and said she was sad to miss a few of those freezing, sunny days. She said she likes the frigid cold and sun for a few days; said it must be the Norwegian in her!

New Favorites

We're officially a week into 2018! Have you been keeping up with your New Year's resolutions? I didn't make any official resolutions, but have been holding myself accountable to some of the habits and rhythms I'd like to integrate into my daily life. I love the feeling of a fresh start, even if it is just because of January 1st!

Cheers to 2018!

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and a great night celebrating the passing of another year. Going along with the year of firsts for 2017, this New Year's was also a first for us...a first for staying in with zero plans. A few of our friends were going to stay with us for the evening, but they had to change plans so JR and I decided (after we looked and saw there were hardly any dinner reservations left) to stay in just the two of us. It was so nice. Definitely a far cry from the NYEs of our 20s (and it's not to say I don't love getting dressed up and going out to ring in the New Year) but it was a very fitting way to end 2017. Staying in with my husband, reflecting on a year that has meant so much for us and our relationship.
