Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a great weekend! It was a fun and eventful weekend over here, so I am keeping it short and sweet for ya’ll on the blog! If you read this previous post then you know how much I love polka dot for summer! I can’t get enough of it, and even better when they are yellow under $25! Today I am sharing this adorable yellow polka dot top and how to rock it this summer! Check out the full look below!
Last Friday I had planned to post my Friday Favorites with this outfit, but after waking up and finding out another school shooting happened not even 15 miles from where I live, I became an emotional wreck. All the fears, anxiety, and guilt as a mom overwhelmed me. All I could think about was the mothers who lost their children that day, who would never be able to see their children graduate, and all I could think was this the future for my child. So many questions, scenarios came up in my head, and for a time I just felt helpless, guilty, unworthy as a mom to protect my own child. It’s hard as a mom these days to watch the news, to hear all the tragedies with school shootings, senseless shootings, lives of innocent children lost, and not have immense guilt and feeling of not doing enough in a time of tragedy. There’s so much we need to do, so much we need to change, and yet it can be so overwhelming knowing we cannot do it all. Today I’m sharing how I’ve been dealing with the anxiety and the guilt as a mom, and what has helped me cope during these hard times.
Sorry for the late post. I know I usually have a post up on Mondays, but I had such a busy weekend, I wasn’t able to finish. If you were following along on Instagram, then you might have known I had one of my biggest dreams come true when I got to attend an exclusive Spring Launch event with my idol Joanna Gaines from Fixer Upper this past weekend. I will share more details of our weekend later this week. Also, I have a really exciting feature tomorrow which I will share at the end of the post, but first I wanted to share this great everyday faux leather moto jacket for under $70 and tips on how you can transition your leather jacket into Spring!
Happy Friday everyone!
Today I am going to keep it short and sweet with this cute and casual look for winter that can easily be transitioned into spring. First of all lets talk a little about Chenille sweaters. Did you know this is the first year I finally knew what to call these extremely soft sweaters I loved so much? I never knew the material was called chenille until this past fall. I guess even as fashion bloggers we are constantly learning new things about the latest trends and fashion. And this is one trend I can’t get enough of. Seriously, I live in these chenille sweaters even when I am at home because of how soft and comfortable they are. So in dedication to my favorite softest sweaters of all time I am sharing with you this pretty in pink chenille perfect for a casual Valentine look.

Happy Monday everyone!
Hope everyone had a great weekend. Can you believe we only have two more weeks till Christmas? I can’t believe how fast this month has gone by, and soon it will be New Years! Today I wanted to share with you one of my favorite trends for the holidays and the Dooney & Bourke bag every girl needs to complete her outfit. Check out this velvet inspired look and my new favorite Dooney & Bourke bag from Zappos.
Last month my hubby and I celebrated our two-year anniversary. We went out for dinner and drinks at Chelsea’s Wine Bar in Seabrook. The sunset was absolutely breath-taking, and the homemade sangria was delicious. Best $5 I’ve spent on a drink in a long time. If you haven’t been I highly recommend it. I wore this outfit to our date, and received tons of compliments. This off the shoulder crop top and high-waisted jeans are perfect together for a fun flirty date night look. Check out how I styled these high-rise “mom” jeans below.
