Back to School Clothes Deals


This post is sponsored by Kohl’s. I received the included back to school clothes and essentials as compensation. #KohlsBackToSchool

It is almost time for school to start again! It is hard to believe that this year, I will have a child in kindergarten! We did a little back to school shopping for preschool, but this is our first year of really needing to go shopping for a lot of back to school clothes. It is insane just how much kids can grow in even just one summer! Thankfully, we were able to find some really great deals and I hope they can help you get the most bang for your back to school buck, too!

Finding the Good in Unlikely Places

What does it mean to be good? That is something I thought about recently, when Cents of Style asked me to feature their Be the Good “Fashion Story Friday”. I thought long and hard about it and decided to do the unthinkable… Go back to my middle school.

I decided that my middle school was the perfect place to take photos for this shirt because middle school was honestly where I learned the most about being good. It wasn’t because middle school was the best two years of my life though. It was because I experienced some of my lowest of lows while standing in this very building. [Read more…]

It’s Important to Be Nice: Be Kind Outfit

This post contains affiliate links.

I remember my mom teaching me from a very young age, just how important it was to be nice. I vividly remember my mom taking a friend home from a play date because I wasn’t treating my friend nicely. I remember standing in the garage, screaming in tears as I watched my mom drive away to take my friend home. I will never forget that moment, but it taught me a very valuable lesson that day. It is important to be nice!

I absolutely adore the “Be series” shirts that Cents of Style offers. They are full of positive affirmations, like this Be Kind shirt. For me, this shirt is the most relevant for the phase of life that I am in. If there is absolutely nothing else that I could teach my daughters, I want them to be taught that it is important to be kind. Being nice to people doesn’t mean that you get walked all over. Some of the most kind people I know are also some of the strongest people I know!  [Read more…]

Best Tunic Ever for Postpartum!

Affiliate links included.

Last time I had a baby, I didn’t breastfeed for very long. She was a NICU baby and never did figure out nursing, so I pumped and fed her for about 3 weeks. This time, I am enduring longer and it has been a totally different journey. One difficulty that I didn’t expect at all was finding tops that would work with my ever changing postpartum body and is also breastfeeding friendly. That is why I am so grateful for this Cents of Style tunic!

Mom’s Night Out: Postpartum Style

One goal of mine for 2017 was to make sure to do something for myself each day. I haven’t always found the time to do that while we have been transitioning as a family of four, but I definitely feel like making it a goal has been helpful and a good reminder to make myself a priority. One way that I can make myself a priority is by having a little night out and let’s be honest, the best part about going out when you have a baby is wearing something that isn’t covered in spit up!

Clothing Necessities for a Beach Vacation

This post was sponsored by Speedo. I received Speedo products as compensation.

During the winter, there are few things I would rather do than go on a beach vacation! I have several friends who have been doing just that and it has given me serious wanderlust. Soon, I’ll be planning a trip that will involve the beach and I’m getting really excited about it! As much as I love spending time on the banks of the lakes nearby, there is nothing like soaking in the hot sun while enjoying the ocean waves.

Isn’t it crazy to look back at the end of the year and think about all of the things that have happened in that calendar year? This year has been a roller coaster of emotions, but I am really grateful for where I am today and where the many trials have brought me and have taught me along the way.

Bumpdate 31 Weeks: Excitement and Mourning

I can’t even believe I am 31 weeks pregnant. Is this real life? If I go full term, I only have 9 weeks left. That is if I go full term! It is pretty insane to think about how much different things are this year than they were a year ago.
