Cheers to 2018: New Year Resolutions + A Cozy Winter Outfit

Happy New Year: it’s officially 2018! It’s hard to believe how fast last year flew by. I guess when you’re a parent, what they say holds true: “The days are long, but the years are short.” That basically sums up the last couple years of my life. Since becoming a mom, it’s amazing how the days can simultaneously drag on and fly by.

But I wouldn’t have it any other way. And from the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you all for following along with me on this blogging journey. To be able to combine my passion for style and writing- while taking the time to raise a family- has truly been a dream come true.

Baby Gear Roundup: 10 Baby Must-Haves for New Moms

Happy Friday, my friends!! I know it’s been awhile since I posted here, but I promise I have good reasons for being MIA. Last week, we had a scary incident that landed me, baby, and my almost 2 year old in the hospital… then on top of that, I came down with a horrible viral flu of some sort. My husband had to take the week off work to basically play house/mom, but as grateful as I am to have such a supportive and helpful spouse, it’s not the easiest thing in the world for me to just sit back and let others take the reigns.

Fridays Are For Mauve: Off the Shoulder Oversized Sweaters

Happy Friday, friends! I don’t know about you guys, but this has been a loooooooong week for me. Between my toddler refusing sleep, keeping up with the house, getting ready for baby no.2, plus my two side hustles… oh, and throw in being a wife and mom… I’m feeling stretched pretty thin. It seems that every time I try to take a moment for self care, something else shows up- usually in the form of a toddler and/or husband. Ha! Story of every mom’s life, am I right?

Five Festive Holiday Styles

HAPPY FRIDAY, lovely friends! I hope this week has been kind to you. I’m finally getting ready to organize baby no. 2’s things and install his car seat this weekend, and the reality that he’ll be here within the next month is starting to sink in haha. I’ve got a lot more thoughts on motherhood to share with you, but those can wait until next week  😉

Versatile Style: Split Bell Sleeves + Studded Booties

Well, guys, can you believe it’s officially DECEMBER?! I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that Christmas, New Years, a new baby, and my son’s 2nd birthday are all around the corner! I’m not sure if I’ve already mentioned this, but both my oldest son, myself, and this babe are all January babies. Needless to say, January is a busy month for my hubby 😀 

Weekend Sale Finds: Shimmery Sweaters + Suede Booties

Happy hump day! I hope you all (or rather your wallets haha) survived the craziness of Cyber Monday. I was able to score a few good deals- namely lots of shoes and a certain instant pot that I’m entirely too excited about- before I realized that I’m 34 weeks pregnant and haven’t gotten a car seat for my baby yet.

I should probably stop buying myself things and get on that, right?!

If there’s one thing I really adore about fall fashion, it’s the abundance of textures everywhere. From faux fur to velvet and suede, there’s a little bit of something for everyone no matter your style preference. And if you’re anything like me, sometimes you’re just so crazy about several of them that you end up wearing them all!
