Vacay Mode


Does anyone have any fun vacations coming up!? I am dreaming of a fun vacation but not sure if that is in the plans right now. I think having a 4 month old and going back to work next week pretty much means I don’t have a vacation coming up anytime soon! I am thinking of planning a trip to Italy for next spring though! I have never been and definitely want to go before having any more little ones.

Spring Refresher

This year I have been loving spring clothing & accessories so much more than I typically do! I normally find myself waiting for fall to come around because I LOVE chunky knits, OTK boots, and moto jackets…however there is something refreshing about a spring look sometimes! I ordered this sweatshirt from the Victoria Beckham for Target collection – it shows it is currently sold out and I am not too sure if they are restocking or not. However, I layered it over my FAVORITE tank from Free People and love the feminine silhouette it created! I am definitely going to be trying this with other sweaters!

These sunglasses are by far my most worn sunglasses this year! I have SO many sunglasses but somehow I seem to always grab these! I think they look good on almost any face shape as well. Loving the hexagon shaped ones too – super similar with a subtle angular change to the round shape.

These shoes are mostly sold out because they are from last spring but they have few colors and sizes left here and are on super sale!

Can’t go wrong with a panama hat for spring or summer! I grabbed mine from Zara a few weeks back but this Madewell one is adorable and I know their hats are usually made really well! Also this J.Crew Factory one is only $21… such a good deal!

Hope you are all having a fabulous week so far!!

Olive Juice

FullSizeRender

If you guys are following me on Instagram then you’ve probably already seen me post this outfit! I also wanted to post this look on the blog for you guys because I found this jacket on SALE! I’ve also been wearing this Adidas t-shirt non-stop! It is the perfect boyfriend tee – super soft and slinky! It is made to fit loosely and looks super cute if you tie it up in the front or the back too! FullSizeRender copy

Obsessed with hats like this for spring! Mine is from Zara but I love this Madewell one right now too!

I mentioned this in my most recent IG post but I am OBSESSED with these jeans! They are a little on the pricey side for torn denim but I have been wearing them for well over a year and they still fit amazing and are still BLACK (not faded washed out kinda black). They also have a little stretch which I love and are really long for all you tall girls out there – I have to roll mine up at the bottom which I don’t mind at all. I could get them tailored but I’m lazy haha!

Hope you are all having a fabulous week – tomorrow is FRIDAY!!!

Random sentimental/romantic thought:

The color of the jacket I am wearing is called ‘olive juice’. My then boyfriend, now husband, used to randomly whisper ‘olive juice’ to me…which sounds like ‘I love you’ if you say it a certain way. This was before we officially said it so I always think of those times when I hear or see the words ‘olive juice’.

Here Comes The Sun

how to wear off the shoulder top

More than anything these photos made me realize I need a serious tan haha! I usually use some type of at home tanning lotion, most recently was Loving Tan which I love but for real sometimes I just get lazy with it! Aside from that I am still LOVING off the shoulder tops for spring + summer and this one is my current favorite!

I ended up fraying the ends of mine for a more distressed look – super easy to do just take some scissors and go against the grain or trim a bit and wash to make the frayed edges come out even more. how to wear off the shoulder topMy bag is vintage Chanel but I linked a similar quilted cross body below and love this one as well!how to wear off the shoulder top how to wear off the shoulder top

Blush Baby

Hi loves, happy Friday! Sharing this super casual high-low look with you today! In life you gotta keep things balanced and that comes to your wardrobe too, right?! This jacket is seriously on sale for only $20 right now! I absolutely LOVE it for spring – it is the perfect blush tone, goes with everything, and is super lightweight. Not to mention bomber jackets seem to be a huge trend right now!

I’ve also been LIVING in this Free People tank lately! Like, no joke, I think I have worn it three days in a row now haha! I am def ordering in gray too…[sizing reference this is a size SM and it is rather LARGE on me still. Def recommend sizing down!]

And of course, can’t go wrong with these espadrilles! I wanted these so bad and was a little nervous to take the plunge and get them – but I so do not regret it! They are SO comfy, will be wearing them all summer!

Happy Friday!

Spring Trend Report // ‘Seeing Red’

I LOVE a good red accessory! I am weird though (aren’t we all!?) because I RARELY will actually wear red clothing. I can’t even think of a red shirt that I own…they are that scarce in my closet! Not sure why because aren’t blondes supposed to look good in red?! Oh, I do have a cute little jumper from Zara that is red 😉

Anywho… I love red accessories and love that this orange-y red color is one of the major colors I am seeing everywhere this spring! I’ve compiled some of my FAVS out there right now…That JW Anderson bag (OMG!) and those perfect flats are both seriously on my list right now! Click the images above to shop or scroll through below!

Spring Favorites

My dress/shirt/blazer combo is one of the most versatile pieces in my closet right now. I love that I can rock this as a dress or pair it with pants to wear it more as a shirt. This one is sold out but I’ve linked a bunch of other ones for you below! I am especially loving this one and this sleeveless one is perfect for summer as well!

This Chloe bag is one of my favorite bags in my closet. I’ve thought about getting rid of it and then every time I take it out I am reminded why I bought it in the first place! I did link some similar looking bags for you below and LOVE this one for $25!

On another note, tomorrow is Friday! Haha, not that it means a whole lot in my life right now with a baby but still! Enjoying my time off before I go back to work in a few weeks!!

Black for Spring?

FullSizeRender-22 copy 5

Guys, I would do a spring look in black. Anyone else love wearing black all year ’round? I do find myself gravitating towards more blush and light camel tones for spring but I always go back to black – you just can’t go wrong. I love that this dress from NA-KD Fashion [get 20% off their site with code ‘blameit20] has the crochet detailing which makes it totally spring appropriate. FullSizeRender-22 copy 2FullSizeRender-22 copy 3 FullSizeRender-22 copy 4 FullSizeRender-22 copy 6 FullSizeRender-22 copy

I also decided to try it without the belt – which I almost like more. At first I thought it would look to baggy and not have enough shape but now looking back at the photos I really love the simplicity it lends.

DockATot + The Ollie World Swaddle = Best Combo EVER!

dock1

Becomming a new mama definitely comes with it’s challenges, and “sleeping through the night” is definitely one of them. I can’t tell you how many people ask, “Is he sleeping through the night yet?!” or “my babies were all sleeping through the night at 3 weeks old”. And to answer the first question, no, he isn’t thank you very much…BUT I would like to think we are on our way! My little guy is 2.5 months old now and he sleeps usually for 4-6 hours and then will go back down for a couple more hours before getting up for the day. I get pretty excited when I get to sleep anywhere from 4-6 hours myself!  In the mornings I always move him into the bed with me from his bassinet. Now, I was always that person who said I would NOT be sharing my bed with my infant. One – it’s dangerous and two – I need my sleep. Well, these days that IS how we get a better stretch of sleep in the morning and I’ve found that by using the DockATot we have a safe alternative. I feel so much better when my little guy has his own designated space next to me on the bed. This way if he rolls over, I know he is safe. And not to mention I can’t roll over onto him. I love that the DockATot can work as a co-sleeper or just somewhere to lounge in while hanging out in my room (one of his favorite activities is talking to the ceiling fan so this works out great).
The other thing that I have found is essential to a good nights sleep is swaddling my little one. Without it he is up within a couple or hours, and with the swaddle we get our 4-6 hour stretch in. We’ve been using this swaddle by The Ollie World and I seriously wish I had this when he was a newborn! My husband and I would swaddle and re-swaddle to try to ensure he wouldn’t bust out of it at night. And not to mention half the time he would wake up mid swaddle not having it. With this swaddle I just lay him down and pull the right side over his body and then the left to connect the velcro. I don’t have to roll him over to get it good and tucked in underneath him or anything! I also love that I don’t have to unswaddle for diaper changes because the bottom is just fastened with a little rubber band – genius!
Our sleep is FAR from perfect but I’ve honestly loved having my little guy close to me while he sleeps and the fact that he is sleeping comfortably makes me one happy mama. For the past two nights I have started him off in the bed instead of his bassinet and he did great! The first night he slept for a 6 hour stretch and the 2nd night he slept for 5! I can see the light!! 😀

Lace Favorites

Chloe hudson bag

I am having a little love affair with lace tops lately. Well, who am I kidding? This is nothing new, I have always had a thing for a sheer lace top with a little bralette underneath. You feel me?! This one had me at hello! Especially since I had been recently eyeing another one that was almost $200 – and this one was $24 so yeah, you do the math 😉

And of course I added a distressed denim jacket to the look to add a little roughness. The one I am wearing is from Zara about a year or two back but I am loving this one from Forever 21! I also linked a few others of my favorites below!
