Grateful: A Tribute

(affiliate links included)

I have been thinking about gratitude a lot lately. When November rolls around, it seems to be the topic on a lot of people’s minds. But what does it mean to be grateful? Does it simply mean that we are glad we have someone or something in our lives? Is it simply just saying that you are grateful for something?

I think gratitude goes far beyond simply just saying that you are grateful for something. I think it involves humility and action. [Read more…]

Current Favorite Shoes I’m Wearing Non Stop

This post contains affiliate links.

I am always curious what people’s current favorites are. You can be totally obsessed with something and then it starts to change and turn into something else. So before my current favorites change, I wanted to share 4 pairs of shoes that have been on constant repeat lately. Warning, if you don’t want to feel like you ABSOLUTELY need another (or another four) pairs of shoes, don’t continue reading because I know that is what is going to happen!

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!

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.

31 Weeks Pregnant Bumpdate

I was also pregnant a year ago. We were in Disneyland for Thanksgiving break and were living blissfully unaware of the life changing news that was about to come that following Monday when we learned that we had lost our baby.  [Read more…]

My boots: Sold out, but similar from Cents of Style

I have had a lot of kind people ask me about my pregnancy on social media, so I thought I would just give a good ol’ update for everyone. It is crazy to think that I am 27 weeks pregnant.

My New Favorite Shop: Mom and Daughter Look

I was given these items to review, but was in no other way compensated. Scroll to the bottom for a special 20% off code to Joules!

You know when you look at a store’s selection and think, “they just get me!”? That is exactly what happened when I was introduced to Joules while I was visiting NYC this summer. I met a couple of the ladies behind the brand and instantly fell in love with the pieces they had brought to share at the event.

Fall Maternity Look (without Maternity Clothes)

Buying maternity clothes is a real struggle for me. Sometimes I feel like all of the maternity clothing companies got together and decided to price their maternity clothes double what they price their other clothing for. I really don’t own many maternity pieces, but I haven’t had a problem finding great non-maternity clothing that totally works on my ever growing belly.
