Friday night, aka Date Night. Although, my date night looks something like cute comfy clothes, a bottle of wine and Netflix while snuggled up next to Adam. Buut, if we happen to have a baby sitter and were going out tonight this is totally what I would wear!
With the nights still warm, I can wear a one shoulder top with jeans and be comfortable. Paired with a classic nude heel, sparkly studs, a sentimental bracelet and a favorite clutch gives sophistication. Add the tried and true top not and now we are date ready!
A little brag here- this is the first I’ve been able to fit into my favorite pair of jeans since early in my pregnancy last year! It feels good seeing my dedication to my health is paying off. It also feels really great to have my favorite jeans back into rotation!
I also have a very exciting announcement! I’ve paired up with some of the Style Collective sisters to give one lucky follower a shopping trip worth over $150! Hop over to my Instagram page, look for this post and follow the steps to enter!

The school year started today for my district. And while summer break might be over for the kids, I’m holding on to the next few weeks! Before we break out the sweaters and booties (and I can’t WAIT for that! Fall. Is. My. Favorite.) I’ve have three ways to wear gingham that are perfect for the end of summer. Scroll down to see my looks! Gingham is one of my favorite plaids! It’s great in all the colors but black and white is just so classic and stylish. Wear it to work or wear it to play- black and […]
My 4 year old son is train obsessed! He has been a total train addict since he was a year and a half old. Every car ride we are looking for train tracks, train bridges, train yards and of course trains! Last summer he was able to ride the subway a ton during our family trip to Boston and has been asking to go back ever since! This past Saturday, Adam and I woke up at 4:15am and pulled the kids out of bed for a very impromptu road trip to Chicago. Main objective: ride the L. Depending on traffic […]
Hope ya’ll are having a wonderful weekend! I’m super pumped to spend some time with my bestie who is in town! I love rompers. I love maxis. And I definitely love this maxi romper! Have you seen these this season? They are so super fun! I purchased this fun dress a few months back in anticipation for summer and let me tell you, it’s been on repeat! It’s so easy to throw on with gladiator sandals or dress it up a bit more with some block heels. I wore it out for a date night with the hubs. I wore […]
Hey babes! Just a quick share of the new listings in my Poshmark closet to share. I listed a handful of great work tops that are perfect for these hot summer days! Everything is listed under $10 and in excellent condition! Check them out! A cute sleeveless ruffle pink top. Looks great with your favorite black dress pants or jeans! A similar blouse but in yellow and a back zipper for some extra flare! I love pairing this bright hue with white denim or a grey skirt like this one. A fun geo print sleeveless button down. I love to pair […]
When it comes to picking out sunglasses I always gravitate towards oversized frames. I have full cheeks so the bigger the better for sunglass frames. Picking a larger frame keeps my cheeks from squishing up into the bottom of the lense- which avoiding that is a total win. Any small step to keep me feeling like I sorta have it together is definitely a bonus. I stick with traditional shapes for my shades: Oval and Aviator are my go to style. I know these two styles work well for my face and that they will never really go out of […]
Happy Friday friends! I wore this outfit a few weeks back to a happy hour event A’s department was hosting. My outfit stemmed around finding this purse in my closet. The baby was napping and for whatever reason I decided to dig through the two containers that keep my purse collection over the years. I found this cute summery purse that I swear to you, I probably bought from Target in 2005! See the handle? That white with stripes is actually what the purse looks like but I decided to flip it inside out when I saw the inside was […]
Peplums, I hope you never go out of style. I really wasn’t a huge fan when you circled back into trend few years ago- but now I’m in love with your flounce. Give me a sleeveless version of you, and it brings all the feels. There’s just something about a sleeveless peplum top that makes me feel confident and ready to take on whatever the day brings! Peplum tops provide some body definition without being too tight. Seriously, this is one of the best silhouettes to hide that last bit of baby weight I’m trying to shake! Fun fact- I […]
It’s July (my birthday month, woo!), and the year of the shoulder show game is STILL strong. What I’m loving the most about this trend is it’s flirting with all the different styles out there. Workout gear, casual, athleisure, formal, swimwear and even professional looks! I see so many adorable cold shoulder and off the shoulder tops that I would love to purchase but my reality is 5 out of 7 days a week my outfits adhere to my company’s dress code policy making some options not office friendly. I was really excited when I came across a few off […]
I’m not a hoarder of much of anything besides crafting and wardrobe pieces. I’m not kidding when I say I still have the skirt I wore to my high school graduation! I don’t wear it too often because I’m not really a skirt girl. It’s a basic cream colored modest mini skirt from Express that is such a wardrobe staple that I can’t part with it. Then there are other items that aren’t such a basic piece that I have kept. If I’m being really honest with you- unless a piece gets ruined, doesn’t fit or just waaay out of […]
I’m a strong believer that a shoe can make or break an outfit. The shoe doesn’t even need to be a wow factor for this to happen- it just has to be the right shoe. For as much as I believe this for years I only wore some version of a flip flop in the summer in all the colors. I eventually graduated from a rainbow of plastic to a rainbow of leather but it wasn’t until a few years ago I started to embrace the various forms of the summer sandal. And now, I can’t stop! Of course I […]
A summer straw bag you need to own this summer!
Hi guys! Gosh, it’s been over a week since I last posted. Yikes! And a week it has been. I’m much looking forward to a glass of wine (or three) this evening! Little Miss started in the infant room at her school this week and I’m back to working full time. I was that hot mess Mom with a stream of tears down my face on our first drop off. This week has been an adjustment; emotionally & physically. I’m still trying to juggle to fit everything that I want into my day/week. (Like blogging, laundry!) Since my little lady […]
Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale started yesterday and I mean really who doesn’t love a good sale? Especially if you’re like me who aims to purchase an entire outfit for under $100 or less! Fashion is ever changing which means sometimes if you just hold off long enough a favorite item will be marked down. Combine that with free shipping and it’s like Christmas morning, am I right? I really love this one shoulder ruffle top– I think it would be great for a little happy hour fun. It comes in so many cute colors but I’d probably stick to black. This […]
My go to marriage advice to give for bridal shower/wedding games is “continue to date one another”. Sure there are other marriage advice that I think are important but for me this one is crucial- and even more so now that we have kids. Work, career, laundry, cooking, cleaning house, paying bills, running errands- there’s a lot that happens to be a functioning adult. Then you have kids which adds another level to all the noise that is life. This can leave us feeling exhausted! It’s good to break away from the every day routine with Adam for a little bit. As […]
I’ve been wanting to try out selling my gently used clothes on Poshmark for awhile. Last weekend at a party I got to chatting with a girl who sells regularly on Poshmark about her experience. After we talked, I couldn’t wait to go through my closet for some listings! I do not hoard much of anything in life besides wardrobe and crafting supplies. For a few years I’ve been saying I’m going to majorly purge my closet- and this might just be the start of it! I think it will be a great way to resale some of the items […]
Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a nice weekend. We had gorgeous weather and I spent celebrating with friends and family all weekend long- it flew by! I’m pretty excited about these striped pants. They are from last year but guys, they fit again! Yeah for small victories. In fact, I wore these last Mother’s Day and just a few weeks later I found out I was pregnant with little miss. I still have some more weight and inches to lose but it feels great to wear something in my regular size! Those tough workouts from the Spring into Summer Shape […]
2017 the year the shoulders show off! Off the shoulder, cold shoulder & one shoulder styles are all over the spring looks. No matter what your budget, you can grab a top or two this season and I’ve rounded up some favorites under $55 for you! This relaxed one-shoulder top seems like something I could get a lot of wear with its casual fabric. Old Navy, $19,94- curently on sale for $15. I’m drawn to how dramatic this poplin OTS top with the big bold sleeves. This would be so cute with skinnies and heels! Jennifer Lopez for Kohl’s, $48- currently […]
Comfiest peplum top for under $10!
I can barely contain my happy in these photos. I’d like to say it’s because I’ve found a great pair of blush denim skinnies. I mean seriously these are amazing for my post-baby bod. They are silky, they pull on, they give squish support and iron so easy. A busy Mom dream for color denim right here! They come in red, black and olive too! I’m also loving how this breezy spring white sweater and of course, dem mules paired for a professional look last week. The real reason for all the happy is all that fresh wood I’m standing on. […]
I’m still obessing over my new mules that I’ve paired them with some denim shorts for two looks perfect Ohio spring weather! Kimonos, robes, & long vests/cardis in soft pastels and florals make great layering pieces for spring. This Loft fine knit blush cardi is one of my favorite spring finds- its soft, versitle and the perfect warmth for April & May. We are traveling to see friends this weekend and this outfit is defiently getting packed! Cold shoulders are making bold statements this year, am I right? While shopping for my kids I spotted this Lauren Conrad cold shoulder spring […]
Now that spring is officially here I’ve found myself missing my white skinny jeans. They are safely nestled with my other pre-baby jeans that I’m patiently working towards fitting again. I’d love to pair an off the shoulder chambray or navy top with some white skinnies, that look is so in right now! I’m entertaining purchasing a pair for this spring/summer that will fit me now. Some contenders: AG The Prima in White I already know I like this brand/cut and ShopBop has them 50% off! 7 for All Mankind Gwenevere Skinny Jean I already own a few pairs of this brand/style so I […]
