Sorry I have been MIA this week on the blog. If you saw my Instastories earlier this week then you might have known I lost someone close to me this past week. It has been an emotional rollercoasters of highs and lows. Some big moments for my career, yet with everything that had happened I didn’t feel emotionally there to share with y’all my true gratitude. I decided I will share next week and allow myself some time to mourn. It is definitely a struggle when you share almost everything via social media and blog to separate the personal and professional. Out of the respect for the family I prefer to keep everything that has happened personal. But I want to thank for everyone who reached out, I really appreciate all your support. Today I thought I would just give ya’ll a quick update as well as share some of my favorite fall trends I look forward . Check them out below!
Happy Friday everyone! Hope everyone has a great week. My mom left for Jerusalem to go on a pilgrimage with her church friends for two weeks. I miss her already, but I am praying she has a fun and safe trip. I know this was a dream come true for her. Today I wanted to share this adorable striped button down with the cutest sleeve and back detail and share how you can dress this everyday top for spring. Check out the post below! Continue reading
Yesterday I had a fun event with my favorite mom bloggers at the new Evereve store in Baybrook. I loved getting to partner up with Megan, Michelle, and Channing for this amazing Mom’ Day Out event sponsored by Evereve, Popbar, Alex and Ani, and Maggiano’s. It almost marks our one year anniversary when we did our first event together last year. It is so refreshing to be with other mom bloggers in the area who get what you do as a blogger and as a mom. Motherhood can seem isolating or lonely at times, and without my mom friends I don’t think I would have my sanity. I can’t thank blogging enough for all the amazing mommy friends I have made. Today I am sharing this adorable outfit inspired by Evereve’s #dresslikemom campaign, and the importance of your mom tribe.
With school starting and our days getting busier, and as we transition from summer to fall, versatility is everything when it comes to your wardrobe. I love talking about staples for every women’s wardrobe, and a simple t-shirt dress like this one I bought at H&M for $10 is the perfect dress to wear casually for running errands, or dressed up for a night on the town. Here are some tips below on how to dress up and dress down this T-shirt dress for the perfect now and later outfit.
This past week I was featured in a series called “Motherhood From Every Angle,” from one of my fellow mommas and an amazing lifestyle blogger Beauty and the Binky. I loved being part of these series and being part of a great group of mothers who share their stories and experiences as a mom. Some times we can all be caught up in the right and wrongs of parenting that we realize there is no such thing as right and wrong. Ever child, every mom, every family is different, but there is one thing that stays the same and that is the love and pride they have for their child. Here is an excerpt of the introductory part of the interview:
This past month I’ve been really busy lately launching my own photography business. Like the blogging world and anything new you venture out to, there’s always a learning curve and making mistakes is just part of the learning process. I’ve been lucky enough to have met some amazing people who have helped me grow and develop in the photography world. It’s not as easy as it looks and there is always so much to learn in photography. Having a great support system in this industry always helps you stay positives when you have your ups and downs. Continue reading
After having a baby I was really self conscious about what I wore. I wanted to be “mom appropriate” but still be fashionable, feel confident, and keep to my sense of style. I didn’t have the flat stomach like I use to and low rise denim with a mid drift top was no longer flattering for my body type.
I started to look at style inspirations and fell in love with Taylor Swifts classic look with her mid-rise bottoms and crop tops. I wanted to experiment with mid rise jeans, but I was a little weary of wearing “mom jeans”. However, I stumbled upon this new brand of denim from Buckle, Kancan denim and instantly fell in love. The mid-rise fit was flattering to my new “mom” figure and was stylish and very affordable, less than $60 for their denim. I invested in my first white distructed denim and loved how they made my legs look. I was never a fan of white denim because I had bigger legs for my body and white jeans seemed to accentuate them. But these jeans actually made me look skinny and kept my stomach in.
Here’s an everyday “running errands” look I paired with a casual Obey crop top and a lightweight scarf to add an extra layer. A scarf is the best accessory to make any look more stylish. The boots are from Qupid and are a must have for any wardrobe. Fringe booties are so versatile and can be worn through the year. My bag is from Olivia+Joy. It also doubles as my diaper bag. I love it because it converts to a backpack and is very convenient when you are carrying a baby around.
So here’s to breaking all the rules and making “mom” jeans fashionable. Fashion has no size or age limit. Be you. Be be-you-tiful!
