The tassel trend is still one of my favorites, especially in the summertime, but I’m also loving ruffles these days. How cute are the sleeves on this dress and the ruffle hemline?! The fit is lose and comfy which y’all know I love, and the stripes give a nod to nautical which I also adore. Grab this dress for only $19 here! In other news, I turned another year older! In recent years birthday’s seem to have brought more meaning than presents and cake. I find myself reflecting on what I’ve done and what I hope to accomplish in the future. I remember my mom always telling me that her mid 30’s and 40’s were some of her favorite years. While I haven’t reached my 40’s I am really loving my mid 30’s. Getting older isn’t just about those laugh lines creeping up. With age you gain a stronger confidence in yourself. You value real relationships that only make your life better. I’ve discovered my goal in life is really to be the best version of myself. The best mother, wife, daughter, sister, and friend as possible. So CHEERS to getting older!
My wardrobe during winter was grey, black, camo, and touches of blush on repeat! More recently I’m adoring all the floral prints that are making a big splash with major retailers and small boutiques. It’s such a girly trend but you can also find tropical prints such as a palm print that doesn’t feel as girly. My dress is from one of my favorite online retailers, Jane.com and I highly recommend shopping/checking out the site. It’s a favorite of mine for finding trendy clothing, house hold items, kid gear, gifts, and more at a discount price. This blue cold shoulder floral dress was from Jane.com for only $34.99! I recently had a girls night out so I threw it on with some booties and tassel earrings to dress it up a bit! The floral trend is so easy to take from day to night making it super versatile! My dress was sold out but I linked a bunch of my favorite floral finds at the bottom of this post! I’m obsessed with the floral wrap dress linked and the Ted Baker clutch is so beautiful! Hope everyone had a lovely Easter! xx
Happy Tuesday y’all! It’s officially spring (YAY!) but it still feels like winter in the Bay Area! It’s currently raining and cold outside but I’m not complaining! Okay (eh um) maybe a little…only because I’m sooo ready for sunshine and bike rides. With the weather changing it’s a great time to add a few spring pieces to the family wardrobe! GAP is having 40% off today using code – TODAY. So I did a quick roundup with a few of my favorites for the family! One of the items I bought (I know I’ll wear it constantly) was the grey tie waste shirt, and I love the Panama hats from GAP because they hold up well and are super affordable! My favorite kid pick is a toss-up between the donut pajamas (btw I want to eat a donut now) and those boho-tassel sandals! So adorable! I only wish the donut pajamas came in my size so I could match my mini’s! Happy shopping.
Happy Saturday y’all! Lazy mornings, donuts and milk, bike rides, soccer games, BBQ parties…these are a few of my favorite weekend things. We love the weekends for plenty of reasons but one of my favorite reasons is being able to sleep in and cuddle with my little loves. It’s usually between 6-7am when I hear their little feet running towards our bedroom and they quickly climb into my arms to fall back asleep. It’s seriously the best part of my day, and I’ve sadly realized it’s starting to stop with my eldest. My daughter found her love of reading and while I’m thrilled with her passion for reading, she has begun to skip morning cuddle time to read instead! I know I should be so proud, but if you’re a Mom or Dad, you know losing the morning cuddle time is heartbreaking! Thankfully she still comes in bed some mornings but the reality is.. she is growing up so fast! My 4-year old still comes in bed every morning. He wraps his little body around mine and when he finally wakes up the first thing he says to me is “Mommy, I love you”. It’s the sweetest start to my day.
Since weekends are jam-packed with kid activities, I love easy Weekend Wear, and this off the should sweatshirt is so soft and comfy. Paired with distressed jeans and comfortable booties it’s perfect for running around town. I also throw it on with black leggings and a beanie or baseball hat, it’s super versatile and cute! This is the true mom look. Simple Weekend Wear, easy hair, and no makeup! Grab my Weekend sweatshirt (on sale) here for only $16.
Happy February 1st everyone! It’s officially the month of LOVE! This weekend we’ve got a fun Valentine’s Day DIY project that anyone can do, so stay tuned. Although I’ve been gravitating towards gray, black, leather, and denim all winter…I do love wearing pastels during these months because it always feels fresh and bright. Paired with duck boots (or really any boot) and a cute beanie you can easily include these colors in your winter wardrobe. If you still love the blush trend like me check out my cozy knit. The sweater fits loose and slouchy and has a cute lace-up detail on the back. I like that it’s not too bulky and at $19 you can’t go wrong! You can shop the rest of my look below, including my favorite winter beanie! I think I own this brand in 6 shades because they are so affordable, wash well, and go with everything!
Half of my pictures from fashion shoots look like this last picture above. I’m sorta in between movements and a bit awkward, so I had to share the reality of shooting as a blogger! It’s pretty funny really, but it’s more about the fashion than me! I’ve been thinking a post full of my funny outtakes might make y’all laugh, especially the ones with my kids! xx
