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. When we built our house we found out way too late that we were getting this teeny tiny deck due to the grade of our lot. We decided to upgrade this spring and the builders just finished. I still have furniture and lighting to purchase plus figuring out stain colors. I am so thrilled to have a place to sit out back and a hard surface for the kids to play. We have this great little nook that’s going to make the best little play fort!
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 […]
I’ve had my blog up for almost a month and I’m long overdue sharing a fitness post! This is Style in Shape- Fashion and Fitness for less afterall and that fitness category is empty! But guys, let me tell you- it’s a lot harder than it looks. To the seasoned fitness bloggers out there- bravo! You make this ish look not akward and totally embarassing. Or maybe it’s just me that is akward and embarassing but you know what? I’m sharing anyway. It’s a killer workout. Some of my moves are modified and my range of motion is no where how […]
I’m obsessed with my new perforated mule booties (right). Like so obessed, there is at least one other blog post this week about them! Are they not the cutest? And perfect for Ohio spring weather when you’re just not sure if it’s going to be gorgeous or rain or snow even! The color is just right too! Love love love them! I’m also really excited to see that this A2 gladiator wedge (left) is still around this season! I fell in love with these sandals last year when I was shopping for my trip to Paris. You can find them at Target and […]
Today is my first day back in the office, eek! On some levels it feels like the past twelve weeks flew by and isn’t exactly long enough time with my new babe. Thankfully I’m only working part time over the next few months which means lots more days full of baby snuggles. Jumping on the Blush Crush craze I paired my favorite black pull on pants with a soft blush top and a white blazer for my first day back to work. I dug out these super old blush snake skin heels too. Truth be told I’m a little nervous to […]
One of my favorite ways to switch up wearing the same wardrobe pieces is mixing up the outfit details- the shoes, the jewelry, the makeup. With the looks I wore most of this winter (here, here and here) it was easy to mix around details to keep myself from focusing that I only had a handful of tops that fit right after pregnancy. Switch a bootie to a riding boot, swap a necklace or give myself a fresh mani can really make a difference. (Pro tip: this is a GREAT technique to use when traveling- create different looks by packing less clothes […]
I am super excited that the gorgeous green blouse my husband bought me for Christmas now fits! Over the holidays I instantly fell in love with the rich green hue and pleated back of this blouse. It kinda killed me to watch it sit in my closet but there was no way it was going to look good over the bump! I styled it with cigarette jeans, suede wedged booties and simple jewelry for our St. Patrick’s celebration this year. We met some friends for the kids to play, watch Irish dancing and of course a little green beer. What did you do? […]
I truly have a love for the burgundy/merlot/wine family. And today I’m sharing another one of the pieces I picked up in that color. So let me start by saying I am not the biggest fan of cold shoulder tops. Idk why, they just aren’t really me?… However, the moment I put my hands on this cold shoulder knit top, I didn’t care if that style is me or not- I wanted to wear this fabric ASAP. Maybe it’s the winter, or maybe it’s the Mama Bear in me- but if it’s soft and comfy, I have to have it […]
Hello, meet what the bestie and I refer to as The Blardigan. She has one, I have one- and it’s heaven really. What is it you ask? Pretty much the most soft cardigan ever made. It’s fuzzy, warm, oversized and ombre. It’s almost like wearing a blanket. I even purchased my mom one for Christmas. It’s that amazing. I wore the heck out of this Barefoot Dreams Cardigan from the moment it was gifted to me. I’m talking once or twice a week. It’s the best to wear on a cold day, especially when snuggling a newborn. Or brunching. Or […]
This oversized knitted poncho has been my serious #1 go to sweater this season. Almost anytime someone would come to visit the baby, I’d throw this on. During holiday shopping I grabbed it on sale at Banana Republic Factory for $30. At the time, I was 34+ weeks pregnant and even at an xs, this sweater fit over the bump. Even though it runs large, I saved it for post-baby anyway. I’ve been head over heels with the burgundy/wine/blood red color since fall and I adore the chunky knit. It’s super easy to throw a long sleeve tshirt underneath and pair […]
I had so much fun creating an outfit for a Mardi Gras party! I knew I wanted to wear a pleated bright green maxi skirt and I was happy to scoop one up on Amazon! Pro tip: If planning to purchase this skirt, the size refers to length not waist. I also knew I wanted to wear a fun head piece. I thought about making one until I spotted a Fleur de Lis headband on Amazon. Then I snagged a purple long sleeve tee on super clearance online at Target. The last piece I needed was a belt. I headed to Hobby Lobby for black sequin […]
