Fall Trends With Tobi

I don’t know about you guys, but today in Minneapolis, it finally felt like fall! The crisp breeze was welcomed and I could not wait to get up and throw on some of my favorite cooler weather pieces. I have been loving the trends for fall this year. From the closet staples like flannel and chunky sweaters to the newer trends like velvet, I’ve been counting down the days until it was acceptable and tolerable to wear them. See ya later, 90 degree days, show me all the 60 degree days stat! That is why I was thrilled to collaborate with Tobi on a series of fall trends. They sent…

My Recent Fall Wardrobe Buys!

Hi friends! I don’t know about you but I definitely took advantage of the Labor Day sales last weekend.As I’ve mentioned in the past, I’m trying to be smart about shopping rather than impulse buying which is SO easy to do! Therefore, I tried to focus on key pieces that would fit nicely into my wardrobe. To me, this meant shirts in neutral tones, dresses that can take me from work to HH and weekend wear. One of my favorite items is this Faux Suede Jacket from Zara. It fits so well & is incredibly slimming. I’d highly recommend if you are looking for a light fall jacket a good…

Corduroy Jumper + Madeline’s Big Sister Skills

Hi friends, Happy Friday! We’ve had a rough week of colds in our house and I’m crossing my fingers we’re on the end of it. I’ve had it the worst, but that’s probably because I’ve subconsciously tried to take everyone’s sicknesses on myself. Nothing is worse than having sick young kids (especially when one is a newborn) and my husband sick…we don’t even want to go there. Guys, right? 🙂 We recently took a trip out to Seattle to visit my sister. We took the same trip last year and WOW what a difference a year makes! This year we added another child to the mix and Madeline was a…

My Hair Guide: Tools, Routine & Talent

Hi all! Some of my most asked questions are all around my hair, so I thought I’d put together an entire post on it. Honestly, I have such strong imposter syndrome that I am humbled even a few of you are curious about how I do my hair, however I also have an incredible group of stylists here that help as well as some key products. I have to give credit where credit is due! My Hair Squad Let’s start with the most important part – the lifesavers I refer to as my “hair squad.” If you are in the Minneapolis area, I highly recommend Haus Salon. I just started going…

Top 5 Favorite Postpartum Shapewear Items

Hi friends! I’m shredding my layers for this post (literally) and having some real talk about my bod. At times it may look like I’ve snapped back, but I can assure you it’s probably shapewear. Let’s be honest, it can be incredibly frustrating putting together a postpartum wardrobe. Essentially, you’re choosing from ALL your clothes: pre-pregnancy clothes that probably still don’t fit, maternity clothes that also probably don’t fit as well anymore and the clothes purchased FOR postpartum. It’s basically three separate wardrobes and it’s exhausting! Shapewear is something I always invest in though. In this post I’m sharing the top 5 items of shapewear I utilize for postpartum. Setting aside superficial…

Postpartum Series: What I’m Wearing & Recent …

Hi everyone! As you may have have noticed, I took a bit of a hiatus from blogging the past few months. The combination of moving, pregnancy and work took over, but I’m back! Baby Calvin joined us on June 3rd and as I’m home with him, it’s inspired me to write (type) again. That being said, I’ll be doing a postpartum series as it’s recent in my life and I actually feel like I learned a ton the second time around that I want to share. For the first post in the series I’m sharing all of the items of clothing I recently bought for postpartum aka the fourth trimester.…

PinkBlush Maternity

Have you ever fallen in love with a dress? After receiving this dress from PinkBlush, I was smitten. I couldn’t wait to try it on and once I did, I didn’t want to take it off. Not only did it fit perfectly over my bump but it had just the right amount of stretch to flatter my new 27 week maternity body. Dressing for pregnancy can be HARD. It’s difficult to know how your body will be one week from the next. Personally, my body changes immediately in the hips (yay) but it takes a little bit of time for the belly to pop. Then, seemingly overnight, baby makes his…
