i am a fashion emergency

I know, I know.

Some of you totally do not believe that title.

In fact, I got a TON of compliments on this…(you are all SERIOUSLY too kind)…

taken by the lovely and talented Missy of mL photography for my biz cards/blog

But people?  I did not dress myself here.

The truth behind this is that I asked Cort what I should wear.  He suggested the blue to match my eyes.  He knows what I look good in better than I do.

Which is why I often blog stalk people like Torie from Twenty Five Design for cute fashion ideas.

When she asked me over to her blog today?  Well I just couldn’t say no!  Maybe being in her space would rub off on me!

So hop on over to her blog, Life with Rylie, and check out my blog-sitting skills.  And learn about my awkward fashion moments.

Also?  If you like pretty things?  You will LOVE Torie’s shop.

I may be obsessed.


About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.


  1. You look great in the picture!

  2. Craig keeps telling me I need to get photos done to use for all this social media nonsense. 🙂

    • one of my awesome friends is a photographer so she snapped a couple for me and I bought her a mudslide. boom.

  3. You are beautiful. xoxo

    Going over to read your post!

  4. Hurrying over to read and also bookmark (I need all the fashion help I can get.) And I am laughing, because when I saw that picture, I was all “wow, her eyes are really blue!” Go Cort 🙂

    • ha ha! I married a man with good taste for sure!

      and Torie is sooo cute and fashionable! you will NOT be sorry you are following her!

  5. love, love. love that picture…you gorgeous girl!!!

  6. Beautiful photo. I wore my first 25 Design headband for over 11 hours yesterday~I loved how cute & comfy it is! I’m jumping over to Torie’s blog now.

    • oh i know, right?? I wore one of mine yesterday too. I ALWAYS get compliments on it too!

  7. I love love love this picture.

    But I suck at photography and also I’m completely unphotogenic.


    I do mudslides pretty well.

    • thank you sooooo much!

      you? are beautiful. so just shut that up right now. also? mmmmm….mudslides.

  8. I’ll be hoping over there soon. But? Dan has a way of saying “Babe…that skirt isn’t your best look” that makes me not want to punch him in his junk. He can clothes shop for me better than I can.

    • Cort is one of the only people in the world who can shop with me. He will be honest…both the good and the bad.

  9. Beautiful picture! Your smile lights up my screen! Just lovely, Katie!
