On Monday’s I wear black and camo, my uniform to show this week I’m going to kick ass and take names later. 😉 What outfits do you wear that motivate you? I don’t wear a ton of black because I think it darkens my personality. I’m definitely more on the colorful end of the spectrum, but when I do wear black I mean business. As a mom, running errands, working, and juggling a baby, sometimes the color black can be your best friend. It conceals stains better, makes you look slimmer, and is a basic color that goes with almost anything including distressed camo jeans. This v-neck tee I got from Old Navy is a must have for any wardrobe. It flatters any body type and is less than $10!
I couldn’t find my jeans online but I linked similar styles below. Can you tell I love destruction. I’m pretty sure every pair of jeans I own have intentional holes in them. I don’t alter my jeans either. I keep them long because I love the option of being able to roll them up like a capri or cuff them at the ankle.
I recently bought these jeweled sandals from the Buckle, and guess what, they are on sale! I love how fashionably comfy they are, especially since I’m on my feet most of the day. Just got my toes done, so I had to do a close up hehe. Love my layered pendant necklace, its a great accessory that is unique yet doesn’t distract from the overall look. Most of my accessories are from Buckle and can be found in the links below. I hope everyone has a kick butt week!
First blog post using my new lens my husband bought me for my birthday. It is amazing how a lens can change everything. I highly recommend anyone who is looking to blog to invest in a good lens. It makes taking pictures so much easier because you don’t have to edit as much. These pictures above were done at noon and are unedited. The aperture is amazing, and the clarity of the photos really bring out the detail. Even my first picture which is out of focus looks pretty cool! This outfit is a must have for any Texas girl, and one of my favorite comfy casual to wear to work: boots, cutoffs, a Texas shirt to show your state pride, and of course Kendra Scott earrings to complete the look! I’m a big fan these Rock Revival shorts because of their 3″ inseam. The length is long enough that it is appropriate to wear almost anywhere, and there is a subtle bling back pocket detail that you can dress these shorts up or down.
Hey guys I wanted to share my first ever “Mommy and Me” workout video with ya’ll. This is a fun little video we did outside showing a couple of exercises you can do with with your baby. Jayden loves working out with me. He is at the stage where he is curious about everything and wants to be a part of everything mommy does. Not only is it a great bonding activity with the baby, but it actually helps him sleep through the night. Try it out and let me know what ya’ll think!
3 sets, 1 minute each exercise followed with 1 minute jumping jacks and 1 minute burpees.
This past weekend, my partner in crime and fellow style blogger Margret of Style Girl decided to explore the beautiful campus of Rice Village. As fellow Phi Mu sorority sisters we always shared our passion for photography and fashion. The campus was absolutely beautiful and baby friendly. I took my son with me for the opportunity to capture some “mommy and me” moments. I was surprised to see how many families were there with their young ones taking pictures. It seemed a very common thing for all the students there. They were very kind and didn’t seem to mind when they had to walk around us to avoid being in our photo shoot. It was definitely a challenge sometimes taking pictures with a baby, but I have to thank Margret for capturing some amazing shots and capturing these precious moments with me and my son. The dress I wore is one of my favorite dresses from the Buckle. It is sold out but I did put a link to a dress that is similar. Love the colors and print of the dress. It makes the dress come alive. I had so much fun taking these pictures with Margret and can’t wait for our future collaborations. Check out the some of the pictures I took of my beautiful sister for her blog post below!
