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!
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
Two things that never go out of style, stripes and a great blazer! I love the cut of this one, and it will carry you through many seasons to come. It’s longer in length making it similar to the popular boyfriend blazer, but also angles in at the waist providing a more flattering shape. Mixing patterns is a great way to keep the look fresh. I like to use an animal print as a neutral which immediately adds a bit of chic to any outfit! If you have further questions on pattern mixing, visit my previous post here which gives some great tips for how to mix patterns. Grab my blazer here for only $27, and shop the rest of the look at the end of this post!
My love for floral is no secret, and this long sleeve midi dress is such a beautiful print and fit. It would be perfect for a spring wedding or graduation party. I added an embellished stretch belt from Francescas for a touch of sparkle and kept the shoes neutral (btw, I constantly wear these shoes). I love that the dress shows very little skin, but still feels romantic and ladylike. This dress is available for $35, but I’ve also linked some other great options at the end of this post.
Happy Memorial Day weekend all! We are staying local, since we are still very much in puppy land (meaning little sleep). Hope everyone has a safe and celebratory weekend honoring our country’s heroes!
