Last call for jeans 

So as I’ve mentioned in the previous post, we only have 5 weeks to go. I’m officially 35 weeks pregnant with baby #2, and only 35 days ’til we get to kiss her cheeks!

One thing I’ve always enjoyed about fashion is being able to dress “tomboy” with a twist. Although it was super hot, I decided Ave and I would throw some jeans on and go! And let.me.tell.you. It took a good 4 minutes to get these jeans past my hips 😳

Babies really do change our womanly figure, and I cannot complain. All my life I struggled to gain weight and was self conscious of having “chicken legs, and bony knees.”

And as much as I enjoy the weight gain and widening of hips, this was my biggest pair a jeans in the closet, and they didn’t get zipped or buttoned, haha 


Clothing holds so much memory, just like photos, and both I cling to. This camo shirt I wore over 4 years ago at Halloween…so so crazy to me. These jeans Avynn has on were from a previous blog post “DIY Denim”


I’ve literally been flipping my closet upside down to help resist the urge to just throw on sweats or active wear. This “shirt” is a dress I wore months back, it’s so insane the amount of clothes I’ve been re-creating into something different.




As always I throw on a hat and go! I’ve always been such a hat girl but since becoming a mom I think there’s been a handful of times I’ve actually tried and done my hair!

Now my hair is growing at an insane pace and these roots are hiding.


Both chokers around my neck were made by me, because like I always say… Improvise with what you already have in your closet!!!

Ladies, pregnant or not start flipping your closets! Take one of your favorite dresses and use it as a tunic style shirt with some ripped boyfriend jeans and booties! It’s comfy, you don’t always have to go for a crop top!

DIY Denim/Jeans + JORD

Hey guys!!

It’s been absolutely nothing but rainy in the 401 until finally today the sun made it’s appearance! During our down-days Ave and I have had a ton of extra time for DIY activities! For those of you wondering what “DIY” means, it’s an acronym for “do-it-yourself.” -Stay tuned for DIY Nursery crafts 😉

I swear I’m the Queen of DIY. I’ve always loved thrift shopping and re-creating looks that are chic, for cheap! I used to make DIY distressed shorts for the longest time, and lately I’ve been shredding jeans like it’s my job!

This week on one of the rainy days, while Avynn was napping I ripped up some boyfriend jeans of hers!


On this day we matched perfectly (I ripped hers identical to mine)! A ton of you messaged me through Facebook asking where I bought her + mine, and the truth is, we re-vamped what we already had!


I figured since I received so many responses I would blog Avynn wearing them, which brings us to today-Denim x Denim!


She was completely wild today even after a nap! Avynn’s sandals were gifted. Her denim button up is Children’s Place and her acid wash hooded vest is from H&M!

I’ve loved doubling denim for years- it’s such a 90’s look, I could find a ton of childhood photos of me in OshKosh! However today I chose to go with denim because I received a watch in the mail right before Mother’s Day from JORD and I’m obsessed!!!!!!!!!

My watch is in the design “FieldCrest-Maple.” You can see the stock photo here ➡️ FieldCrest-Maple

 The color of the watch is actually the Original wood after being conditioned with Tung Oil ( this prevents the wood from cracking)!

I love the light Maple it will go with everything! I’ve never been a huge watch girl, I’ve always felt that the typical Michael Kohrs + Fossils were always too flashy, and I feel these wooden watches are completely versatile!

Back to School with Basics and Brights!

So September surely did sneak up on us! I am finally returning to the University of Rhode Island to complete my first Bachelors degree! I took an entire year off for my maternity, and didn’t return due to enjoying my time at home with my little one!

The thing I remember most about the first day of school was always the pressure of what I was going to wear. I always laid my entire weeks worth of clothes out, rearranging accessories and shoes. That was grade school of course! Once college began I would buy a few bulk items, like leather jackets, boots, and the biggest bags I could snag! What one thing I learned about college the first year was how laid back the wardrobe was around me. Girls throw on Uggs, leggings, and a Northface; and they’re ready for class! Although I didn’t find myself a part of that trend, that was not the only reason I began to plan out my dress. I have always worked full time since I can remember; so that means right after class I am rushing to work! Well, now I have a child, a girl at that, so you know I have to take time to dress her and then myself; as quick as possible! I have found ways that work for me, that will hopefully work for some of you too!

Everyone has a plain tee in their wardrobe, men and women. I decided for a laid back, but trendy look; to go for Basics with a pop of Brights! Brights are a great way to slowly channel your summer wardrobe and accessories, into the chillier fall weather! With a plain white tee, and some distressed boy jeans, it doesn’t get more basic than that! (When it does get a little cooler, I would pair this with a black leather jacket). A trend I’ve loved since forever is FRINGE! And fringe is still trendy up until Winter for me! I chose to add a touch of fringe with these cute little flats, along with a bright coral beaded necklace (which matched my lip color)!

So ladies! Take your most comfortable pair of jeans, add a plain top, with some pops of color! It’s such an easy way to throw something on, and look like you planned to precision!

For the men out there, I’ve found accessories including shoes and hats have worked really well when styling you! A post for you is on it’s way!
