Why I Don’t Wear Lingerie

April 28, 2014


Erin Schrader

A quick story on how non-observant my husband is. It all started Friday evening as we were preparing to go out with a group of friends for a birthday party [see photo above..I am a firm believer that nobody should have to enter any building // home // etc on their birthday without some sort of awesome thing smacking them in the face prior] so long story short, I put on the dress that you see above. As I was garnishing our counter top with wine, vodka, rum, and all other necessity’s for our guests arrival, Shawn says “your midriff is showing!” Quickly I reply with some sort of loving comment like “no kidding idiot, I wore this to dinner with you in California and you took several photos of me in it for my blog.” Another long story short, he still had no idea that the dress ever had any cut-outs in it when I wore it the first time around. And now you know why I never wear lingerie. So much for bringing sexy back. 
Additional photos and details of our weekend to come. I’m off to go dance around our house naked and see if anybody notices.

As much as I love shorts season [aka summer] I sometimes despise the actual “denim shorts season” itself. Shorts can be tricky. Sometimes they are too tight, too short, too loose and the list of all of the discomforts of shorts goes on. Today, we’re here to put some of those discomforts to rest and […]

If there’s one trend I’m happily hopping on board with, it’s the white sneaker rage. Maybe they never went out of style, maybe it’s more socially acceptable than ever to wear tennies with every. single. outfit. Either way, I’m here for it.

If there is one thing I have learned over the past year of life it is that 30 minutes on a bike can change your life in the best way possible. After years of hearing how great a workout on a stationary bike can be, Shawn & I finally decided to put the pedal to […]
