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…

Aerie Sale Picks

Sale Alert! Aerie is one of my favorite places to buy loungewear and “comfs” as I like to refer to them. 🙂 I’ve found the quality for the price to be really great and think their styles are adorable. Aerie is having a sale that ends tonight where you can take and extra 25% off your entire purchase when you use the app. Many of the items are ALREADY marked down 25-60% so this is a really big savings. The key is that you have to use the app, which you can download here. I snagged a few items that have been in my cart for the past few weeks…

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…

Loft Summer Sale Picks

Loft is having a major summer sale and EVERYTHING is 40% off (prices below do NOT reflect the discount so it’s 40% off of those)! I’ve purchased a lot from Loft lately because I really think they are killing it with their selection and sales. Below I’ve rounded up all of my favorites from the sales including this dress on sale for 41$! My earrings are not Loft but are only $13 and can be found here. I’ve worn this dress no less than 10 times since I got it. I’ve worn it to work, on an airplane and lounging on weekends. Made with the Lou and Grey signature fabric…

Working Out Post Baby & My Favorite Athleisure …

Leggings // Workout Tank (similar) // Zip Up // Shoes // Sunglasses Working out. We either love it or we hate right? Pre-baby I was adamant about working out at least 4 times a week for mostly superficial reasons. I wasn’t thinking about the future, I was living in the present. Post-baby I workout for a much different reason. I want to live longer for my kiddos and I want to be in good enough shape to always run around with them. My Post-Baby Workout Journey After MK, my almost 3 year old, getting back into the saddle wasn’t too difficult. My pregnancy was relatively easy and after I got…

Jumpsuits & How to Wear Them

You have all probably heard me praise from the rooftops my love for jumpsuits. They are so freaking comfortable and I feel like I’m wearing pajamas every time I step outside in one. WIN! I’ve come to understand that there is a bit of anxiety around the jumpsuit trend and how to style them. There are a ton of ways I can go with this post but I am going to keep it simple with a basic black patterned jumpsuit. Below I share a few items to style with this jumpsuit and how to bring it from day to night. I also rounded up all my favorite jumpsuits out there…

He’s One.

How in the world is my little buddy officially ONE?! This year flew by for me. I’m not sure if it’s just getting older or the pure insanity that is having two kids under two, but wow it went fast. Our life changed in an instant the day Calvin was born and it brings me to tears even talking about it (yes, I’m that mom now). The tears were not sad and this is not a tragic story, but one of the pure unconditional love. Growing up I was never bound and determined to have a ton of kids. Sure, I knew I always wanted to be a mom but…
