Sunflowers and Gingham

Pairing a perfect early fall activity with an end of summer classic style! Keep reading to find out more!

There is this amazing sunflower field in Yellow Springs, Ohio. My husband and I have lived in Dayton for almost 8 years and admittedly this was our first time visiting.

The field is gorgeous! However I had no idea what to expect visiting a sunflower field. There are tons of bees! Thankfully the little terrors are drunk on pollen and could care less about us moving through the field. I did not expect the flowers to be so tall or itchy either. My sweet four year old plowed through rows taller than him. Such a trooper!

The problem with tall flowers is it makes it impossible for this novice blogger to take a full outfit shot in the field. I really am not sure what I was thinking? Totally should have Pinterest that idea first. I took a picture of my shoes thinking maybe it would help visualize the look. Probably does not but maybe? Just go with it! The flowers are too pretty not to share so I’m posting anyway.

I wore a gingham button up I purchased years ago from Kohl’s with my favorite jeans ev-er. I am so beyond excited to fit back into my favorite AG jeans since baby girl was born! {happy dance} I pulled on my new obessisson: these olive peep toe booties. Also probably not the best choice to wear heels to march through a sunflower field. All things I am taking note for next year!

My bag is from Heart Mercantile. It’s a fun earthy tone in a faux suede & I am totally loving it for fall!  

Top Knot & One Shoulder: A Killer Date Night Look + a Giveaway!

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!

White Denim I Miss You

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 know the fit would work out for me. Off Fifth has a few pairs left and are almost 60% off!

Articles of Society Sarah Distressed Skinny Jeans

I’ve never tried Articles of Society denim before but I’ve heard good things and I’m really loving the distress look right now. These are not on sale but are under $60 over at Nordstrom!

What do you think? Have a favorite white denim that I need to know about? I’d love to hear from you!  Right now I’m leaning towards the Articles of Society distressed skinnies.

What I wore: St Pat’s Day!

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?
