Little Pink Dress for Valentine’s Day?!

So original! I know I know…who would ever think of it? However, this dress is under $100 and looks like it cost more from the design to the style, and everything in between.

These earrings are $22. They aren’t your ordinary earrings either, they are like hoops and drop style all at the same time.

Cool right?

To add to the look, of course, I needed a pink lip and this one is the perfect shade. A nice added pop!

This Chanel handbag is the prettiest color. I love the blush color, here’s a handbag with a similar style!

Do you like wearing pink for Valentine’s Day? Or do you like to stay clear of pink and red? Maybe you go for black?!

Cheers!

Ruffles & Loafers?! What kinda combo is that?

I know that’s what you’re thinking. I mean feminine mixed with something so…strange. The two just don’t seem to go together.

One sounds rather dressy the other not so much!

This, however, is a casual look and the two just seem to go together so nicely. The cold shoulder is a must-have item right now and mixed with ruffles it just gives it that added touch of…oh my gosh get in my closet!

This top is $39. It’s not really dressy so you can be cute while on the go or are a mom like me. Mom life!

It’s super flattering to any body type. Not too tight. Amen to that, because I had a basketball size belly two months ago and now it has been replaced with some flappy mush. Ha!

I’m here, to be honest with you. Maybe too much info, but if your stomach is an area you’d rather not draw attention to like me then this top will be your best friend.

How?

Well, I’ll tell you.

The cold shoulder detailing draws attention to your shoulders!

Yay!

I’ve worn a few tops that have cold shoulder detailing lately.

So you can try this ruffle, cold shoulder trend even on a budget plus it’s flattering by revealing those sexy shoulders! You can even try it with these jeans that fit so well and are under $60!

Cheers!

How’s your week so far? Mine is sure to be busy, the story of my life. My husband’s birthday is coming up, so I have to start planning that and get his gifts together. We have such a busy few months. First, with the baby and the holidays. Then in January when I’m poor from all the money I spent at Christmas, I have my husband’s birthday. Two weeks later on Valentine’s Day, I have our wedding anniversary and a week after that is my birthday. Then the rest of the year is pretty quiet, so we have everything all at once. Are events in your life spaced out or all at once? Am I the only one who has everything all in just a few months?

Now on to fashion

Grey all day, head to toe! This sweater is under $40, and is the loveliest shade of grey. I love the neckline, it comes in a few different colors. If grey isn’t your cup of tea. It’s super comfortable to wear with leggings too.

Are you obsessed with these shoes?! I love the fun fur pom poms. These come in a few different colors! Sam Edelman really makes the cutest, most fun, and stylish shoes. They are super comfortable surprisingly, just make sure to wear socks. I made that mistake once before.

I like that this outfit is cute but super casual for errands, or scratching things off your to-do list.Or pushing a stroller and getting a baby in and out of the car. If your life is similar to mine at the moment. ūüėČ Carriers/car seats are HEAVY, I also have a 15.5 lb 2-month-old to add to that weight. Plus wearing a hat makes it easy to just go without worrying about doing too much to your hair.¬†So comfort and casual are my go to looks.

What are your favorite looks? That match your lifestyle? All you all about comfort in your daily life, or is dressed up your go to?!

Cheers!

Another Monday a new outfit. This top is under $50 and the ruffles are super cute not to mention the fun cold shoulder detailing adds the perfect touch. I love adding pieces into my wardrobe that will carry me into spring and summer. I know a lot of places all over the world are covered in snow but Arizona is never really ”that cold” compared to other places. It’s just been raining a lot.

So you could grab this top and hang onto it for warmer days!

These jeans are under $60 and I adore the wash and fit. I have lots of designer jeans and this brand is still one of my favorites, for the fit and comfort. I love these!

Cheers!

Winter basics are my favorite. I like pieces you can grab walking out the door and still have that ”put together” look. I mean mom life over here! It totally looks like I planned my outfit {hopefully anyway} and I didn’t. Black basics with a coat over top. Fights the cold and finishes off the look. This turtleneck is my go to constantly and these leggings are a must. The prices are great too!

So I’m really hoping that next week I’ll be back to my Monday, Wednesday, Friday blog schedule. I’ll be honest becoming a mom around the holidays can be crazy or at least it was for me. When you take about 1,000 photos of your child everyday it hardly leaves room for anything else. So taking photos of myself is often the last thing on my mind. When I get a free second it’s usually spent on the piles of tiny laundry I have. Who knew a little person adds so many more loads?! Now that the social events have died down, and my life is a little less busy I can focus on my little corner of the internet. Be sure to follow me on Instagram, I’m pretty active there. On days you’re wondering where I am when I’m not on the blog.

Is your new year off to a blessed start? I hope it is!

Cheers!

Lace Dress

The holidays may be over but who doesn’t like to dress up from time to time?! Social events, family gatherings, weddings, work parties, or a night out. This lace dress comes in two colors the burgundy shade I’m wearing and then there is a classic black. It fits true to size and is very comfortable {surprisingly}.

I’ve been recently introduced to a brand called¬†Dune London when I was perusing Asos one night. Girls, I’m not even kidding I think it’s my new favorite brand. Not only do they have beautiful shoes and bags at reasonable prices but I could comfortably walk in this shoes all night. That’s something I don’t say lightly, I’m that friend you have that can’t walk in heels… like at all. I limp, hobble, shuffle, or any other word you can think of that describes a person who can’t walk in shoes higher than a 0.5 inch heel. So this brand is a life saver for me. Also, this isn’t sponsored they don’t know me from Adam, I just really like them and happy I found them. I figured I’d share incase you ladies either a) can’t walk in heels or b) don’t like to because they hurt your feet.

So now onto life stuff. How’re your New Year’s resolutions going? Did you set any this year? If so, I’d love to hear them! Leave them in the comment section below!

Cheers and Happy New Year!

Happy New Year girls! I’m in shock that 2016 is over, I remember when I found out I was pregnant and due in November it seemed so far away. I mean it is almost the end of the year! It was spring, I had all of the summer and most of the fall until I’d have this baby in my arms. Oh how it flew and now he is here and almost 2 months old.

Ok, so that’s my rant. In fashion related news this sweater comes in a ton of colors. It’s such nice quality, fits well, and is super convenient to wear. You are both comfortable and stylish. I want to get it in a couple neutral colors, I think it would be very versatile and you could wear it often. I love the bright, fun boldness of the red.

These boots are 50% off, and just over $100. The price point is so good with them being on sale! I’ve worn them a ton and find them super comfortable even with a baby. I think they are very functional and I enjoy wearing them.

Do you have any New Year’s Resolutions? I don’t really have any ”resolutions” per say rather lots of goals for the upcoming year. For the blog, for my family, my health, and vacations I’d like to take. Ha! I guess we will see if any stick past the month of January. Lots of prayers to keep my motivated!

Cheers and Happy New Year!

Merry ”almost” Christmas my people! This Jeremy Scott for Cybex stroller is my favorite ever when I saw it I just had to have it. When I saw this sweater I also had to have it. I mean I am a queen after all. Ha!

I can’t believe Christmas is practically here. How?! I know time seems to fly especially now that I have a growing newborn. It makes me sad that he is 7 weeks old today. It’s been the hardest, craziest, best weeks of my life. How can something so perfect be all those things?! Getting adjusted to my new life around all the craziness that the holidays bring is so busy. I’m loving every minute of it! Even if I feel overwhelmed, and hormonal.

I wonder what I did right to deserve such a good baby, I’m so blessed. You know those days you wake up and say ”Wow, is this my life?!” In a good way I know there are days we say that along with ”Why me?!” and those days aren’t as fun, but honestly I wake up thinking why does God give me so much more then I deserve I’m so unworthy of the goodness he shows me. I’m so thankful for my blessings and try to remind myself of that on days I feel so tired and stressed.

Remember you are too blessed to be stressed! I pray all God’s blessings on you this holiday season.

Cheers and Merry Christmas all December long!

Pop of leopard ladies! It may not scream Christmas, but it does scream sexy! Ok, ok so not overly sexy I’m a mom now. So really it’s just a cute scarf. It adds a nice touch to an otherwise all black look. It breaks it up a little! This faux leather jacket¬†is so chic and sleek and is under $100.

Life

Are you ladies ready for Christmas?! I think I’m as ready as I’ll ever be, I hit the ground running and then wonder what I did all day as I lay in bed. Is it just me or does everyone do this? I thought it might be because I’m a new mom but my friends are saying how the holidays just somehow ”sprung” up on them, so I’m glad I’m not the only one. Ha!

My social media presence has been so spotty, I’m working on it. I think it’s a mix between a newborn and Christmas, or at least I hope that’s the problem. This mom stuff takes some getting used too! I honestly don’t care about anything but him so that’s probably a part of the problem. I want to stare and talk to him all day long, that leaves very little for anything else. Hehe!

I can’t wait for Santa to come to town, I know a month old baby doesn’t need or use much. So he’ll have to get creative and bring presents the baby can use in the next year.

 Cheers and Merry Christmas all December long!

Fashion and Life

Cheers ladies! Can you believe the holidays are really here?! This sweater is cozy, casual yet perfect for the holiday spirit. The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear. Or maybe just wearing a sweater that says it instead. Ha! Have you got all your Christmas shopping done?! I’m still behind over here, but my husband and I are going to brave the mall tonight. Wish us luck! Hopefully, we can start and finish up all at the same time. ūüėČ

Do you ladies have Christmas plans?! Or anything fun you guys are doing to enjoy the season? Lights, family visits, or holiday parties?

Cheers and Merry Christmas all December long!
