Happy Monday! I was able to get in a good nap yesterday, so I woke up this morning feeling refreshed and ready to start my week! (Sunday’s are the only day I am able to relax enough to actually take a nap when my son naps, and I look forward to it all week! Haha). We’ve been checking off items from our fall bucket list! Last week we went to the pumpkin patch and I got some adorable pictures of my son NOT looking at the camera because he was too excited to stop for pictures! But that’s ok, I’m glad he had fun!

If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that I recently did a 10 day fall wardrobe challenge. I mentioned in my last post that I was not going to be posting about my fall capsule wardrobe. I am still doing one this fall, but I was much more lenient about the typical capsule “rules”.
Anyway, I spontaneously decided to join Carolyn, from UnFancy, in her 10 day wardrobe remix challenge. Basically, you choose 10 items that you will make 10 different outfits from over the course of 10 days. I saw this and thoughtREAD MORE
It is officially fall and our mornings have had a little bit of a chill lately! I have even been enjoying a cup of hot chocolate in the evenings after my son goes to bed. However, it is still pretty hot outside during the day (like still in the mid 90s!). I finally put together my fall capsule wardrobe, but decided not to post about it this time. I was not as strict with the usual capsule “rules” and I actually created a two part capsule; the first part for this time of year when it’s fall but its still really hot out (think tee shirts, shorts, and sandals still), and the second part includes more sweaters and cardigans that I can wear once it cools down.READ MORE
Happy Monday! I totally took a break from blogging last week because I have been extremely busy with my photography business and with launching the fall collection for my etsy shop! But, before I jump into all things fall here on the blog, I wanted to share my simple summer go to outfit!READ MORE
We have been having some very hot days here lately (100+ degrees)! I have always been an accessories girl, but summer is always challenging to me because I do not want anything extra that will make the high temperatures any more uncomfortable. I have always struggled with finding that perfect item to keep my accessory loving self happy without overheating.
So, if you are an accessory loving girl like me and you struggle with finding the perfect accessory to wear that won’t make you more uncomfortable in the summer heat, your search has ended! I have gathered up my favorites to share with you!
Happy Friday everyone! Can you believe it is already August!? I was sure that I just turned the calendar to July only a few days ago, and now it’s already August!
Well, today, I am sharing another outfit with you all! The weather has been ridiculously high lately (I’m talking over 105, ALL WEEK!), so I have had fall on my mind a lot! I usually wait until it is closer to the end of my third month to go through my clothes for my next capsule wardrobe, but with my desire to wish fall upon us, I went through them in the middle of July and began brainstorming what items I might want to add to my wardrobe!
Before having my son, I knew my style! I would describe it as fun, dressy, and girly. I was working at a school, so I would dress up every day. After having my son, I pretty much wore sweatpants and a nursing tank every day for about two months. I was frustrated that I was not losing the pregnancy weight that everyone said I would lose quickly due to breastfeeding. I was discouraged because none of my clothes fit.
I went to Old Navy and picked up a few boyfriend tees. I absolutely LOVE that style. They are super comfy and great at hiding the extra baby weight I’m still struggling to lose. So, anyway, on to my outfit!READ MORE
Summer is here! That means it is time to transfer over to my summer capsule wardrobe. I have been loving my capsule wardrobe! I don’t have to think about getting dressed and I definitely am not having to spend any time trying on something and then throwing it on the floor because it doesn’t quite fit right (something I did a lot before starting my capsule wardrobe). My fear with doing a capsule wardrobe was that I would quickly get bored since I was wearing the same things for 3 months. But you know what? I didn’t!
Since having my son, I have struggled with finding my “mom style”. I want to dress in a way that is still true to my style, but I also need to remember that I have to wear something that I can easily nurse in. I was afraid I would fall into the frumpy mom look and that I wouldn’t be able to wear anything that I loved. For a while, I did and I wasn’t happy with how I looked.
Summer is right around the corner! I’ve been dreaming of days spent by the pool and family vacations for a while now! It is already supposed to get up to 100 degrees here this week, so I have been thinking of ways to keep cool. At the beginning of summer, I always make sure we have our beach bag packed and ready to grab for any spontaneous adventures or pool days.
Today, I am going to share with you my summer day essentials, which just so happens to be what I have ready to go in our beach bag!READ MORE
