Madewell Summer Sale Picks

It’s a fantastic end to a week when Madewell is having an extra 40% off all SALE items. Not only does it include pure summer styles but my favorite Whisper T-shirt and Tank Tops are marked down to under $10!!! SNAG THEM UP! Below I’ve rounded out all of my top picks from the sale so you can easily shop. Some of these items I already own (and I mark that) and others are in my cart. I grabbed pretty much every color in the whisper items. I wear a size S in the tanks and M in the tee’s (for a slightly oversized fit). ALSO, don’t forget to head…

Weekday Makeup Routine

Hello & Happy Wednesday Friends! Balancing my career in Marketing, my role as a mom to two littles and this blog has been something I’ve had to learn how to do over the past few years. I’ve learned how to effectively multitask, create efficiencies where I can and most importantly prioritize. Nothing can take time away from my mom time. I’m covering a bit of the second point in this post – creating efficiencies. Getting ready in the morning is usually a whirlwind in our house. Luckily both of my kids are great sleepers BUT you can never count on that. There have been many times where my makeup is…

Currently Loving: Top 10 Items For Mom’ing

Stages in mom-life tend to change with the seasons. As kids grow, especially when they are young, their interests and needs change SO quickly. Because of this mom’s have to switch gears and adapt almost instantaneously when their child(ren) move into the next phase. Currently, Calvin is 13 months old and Madeline is almost 3. It seems like in the last few months they have both dramatically gone through a leap mentally and physically. They are interested in new things, are more active and more independent. Because of the age gap, their needs are seemingly on opposite planets right now. 🙂 Therefore, I thought I’d round up my top 10…

Nordstrom Anniversary Sales Purchases

The Nordstrom Anniversary is here and has made it’s mark on bloggers across the industry! Everyone is talking about it, shopping it and sharing it. The main reason is because it truly is a great sale and it is focused on NEXT season which is unheard of. The markdowns are impactful and the brands included are top notch. Because of the saturated amount of people doing try-ons, round ups and inside looks at the items for sale I’m not going to go that route! I will however share with you what I purchased and will do a try-on for those items! My goal is to be here for you guys but…

Sticking With The Basics

Outfit Details: Jeans (similar) // Shirt // Shoes  (navy & red which would be PERFECT for the fourth!) Basics. By far my favorite items in my closet! About a year ago I made a goal to myself to stop impulse buying. What does this mean? It means buying a flashy shirt or dress that did not fit in with the rest of my wardrobe. I’ve been working on curating a closet “uniform” for a while now and basics are at the core of that. I have been trying to consciously buy quality items that work with other pieces I already own. It’s surprisingly removed a lot of stress from my morning routine and…

Styling a Kimono

Outfit details: Kimono // Jean Shorts // T-Shirt // Sandals Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend. It’s always hard to come back but part of me really loves a fresh new week. Anyone else with me? I’ve been very into the kimono trend as of lately and thought I’d share how I typically style it. Kimono’s can be worn SO many ways – dressed up or dressed down – but I typically go for using it to dress up a casual outfit. So, right in the middle. 🙂 My go-to outfit My go-to kimono outfit this summer has been to pair it with jean shorts (these are…
