Cold Shoulder for Winter Date Night

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 this season.

I paired the cold shoulder top with the amazing postpartum support leggings by Blanqi. These breathable leggings give great support on my thighs, waist and bum that isn’t retractive or uncomfortable. Bonus, they have a little sheen which makes them super fun to wear on date night!

Before you go, let’s just ogle a little bit more at the over the knee boots. Yes, it’s in that wine family color again. I just love these puppies, and I can’t believe how well they have held up the last two seasons!

The Blardigan

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 […]

Oversized Sweater FTW

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 […]

Mardi Gras looks for the fam

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 […]
