Camo Romper Amazingness

Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone! I’m loving spending time with my family – BBQ’ing, playing outside, having a few cocktails on the deck, going for walks and enjoying the long weekend. I’ve never really been a romper girl, mostly because I’m tall and they usually are just too short or fit me oddly. I stumbled across this one the other day though and am now ADDICTED. It’s perfect in general and works for tall girls and with being a mom. Stylish, yet comfortable. The fabric is soft and the waistband is really flexible (if that makes sense). It’s also on sale right now! Check it out (details below). Does anyone…

Casual Friday: Boho Chic

It’s a rainy start to the Memorial weekend holiday here in Minny, which makes casual Friday THAT much more casual (and necessary). Today I went with the staple jean shorts & tank top, but added this lace cardigan to make it more fun. This lace cardigan is another Target steal! I’ve realized I have a MAJOR addiction to long cardigans (anybody else?!) so when I find deals on them, it makes it all the more justifiable. 🙂 If you follow me on insta you’ll see I’ve worn these jean shorts like 5X in the past week – they are so comfy. Outfit details below! Jean Shorts; Tank Top (similar and…

Getting Lost in Europe & Our Decision to …

Mike & I have been back from our European vacation for about a week now and are still time traveling back to how amazing it was. We went to London and Ireland for 9 days! We decided before Madeline was born that we really wanted to take a trip with just the two of us to somewhere special. Our 5 year wedding anniversary is coming up in August, we’ve both celebrated 30th birthdays and we had a gorgeous baby girl. We had LOTS to celebrate plus we had a major case of wanderlust! Leading up to the trip, I experienced all the emotions possible. I was excited, scared, anxious, and…

The Perfect White Tank & Sunday Things

Happy Sunday! Ours is full of unpacking, laundry, house cleaning, Babies R Us, Costco and Whole Foods Runs. Add in playing outside and enjoying this PHENOM weather! We converted Madeline’s stroller from infant to toddler style and she’s loving it — seeing out versus staring up at us during walks and errands has changed her life. We are stocking up on all things healthy at Whole Foods today – cannot wait to meal prep & kick off this week with some energy. Some of my staples are avocados (for toast, smoothies and salads), Protein Pancake Mix, yogurt, fresh veggies and hummus and tons & tons & tons of fruit. The tank…

Happy Friday, y’all! I am excited for the weekend to kick this jet lag and hang with my girl, MK. This T-Shirt dress is from J. Crew factory & is recent. It’s $35 bucks and I also have it in black. Such a great spring and summer essential! Details: Dress; Chambray Shirt; Sandals (similar and similar). XOXO

The first 9 months: my journey & self reflection

Wow – talk about the quickest 41 weeks of my life! I cannot believe Madeline has been in the world as long as she was in my belly now. What a whirlwind! I thought I’d write a post about all the things that have changed in the past 41 weeks. Some of them instant (hello, overwhelming love) and some of the gradual (hi baby weight). All of them relating to my emotional, mental and physical state in some aspect. Here is what I’ve encountered in those categories (side note: obviously this is just MY experience with Madeline — everyone is different and every pregnancy is different). Emotional All the feelings.…

What I wore in London: The perfect …

London has been surprisingly warm thus far which has made dressing super easy! I’ve been living in light dresses and sneakers. This dress is PERFECT. I love the open back and slit on the side – makes a basic black dress a little more interesting. It hangs well and is really comfortable. Perfect for wandering the city! You can get the dress here and shoes here!
