Triple threat 

Happy Wednesday! Happy October! I say this every time but it’s seriously been forever. I’m a busy bee, 5 classes is no joke, with 2 girls is even more hilarious: but needless to say I’m killin it! 

I’m working for an amazing brand right now (from home which is ideal), so I promised myself I would blog more and have the girls involved. I’ve gotten so many requests for the girls to be in the spotlight again and honestly how could I resist?! 

Avynn loves her photo taken, but Ivory was a whole different story haha- James was a trooper he kept chasing her then putting her in her “spot” and running out of the frame quickly


Cheetah/leopard made its way back on shelves and I’m not mad. I feel a sense of power wearing it, it’s so bold. The girls are animals so this was perfect for them 


I’ve had this top for years, and also I’m loving how faux leather is back! 

I tried to dress down my look with these slippers from Simply Vera Wang

Also, I love that I can dress this skirt up or down, with a blouse or a loose tee! 


Ave was in such a good mood she kept saying “Mama remember we used to blog when Ivory was in your belly?” Haha

I used to do anything to keep us out of the house while I was still pregnant  but having 2 girls is like having 20, I swear 

We grabbed some pretty cute shots, and how cute are their matching skirts from Old Navy?!You guys will also see a lot more of this bag! I’ve teamed up with Lily Jade-this is the chic-est diaper bag I’ve ever seen- obsessed! I’ll be posting on Instagram some amazing features it has!  

I’ll keep it short and sweet today- but I wanted to throw red into this blog set to symbolize the strength and power of family. Vegas is still in my thoughts and prayers, and it’s been so hard for me to shake. Hold your family and friends extra tight, all we need to spread is love more than anything.

Saturday Blues 

It’s been a long summer for me. I’m just now hitting 7.5 weeks post-op from my hernia surgery and lawddddd what a recovery. As always recommended please do your research before you agree to procedures! No complaints here-but I thought I’d bounce-back quicker!

And summertime is all about feeling comfortable, cooling down, and making memories. So I finally decided to throw on a bathing suit I’ve had for months
I love the denim-on-denim, since childhood so let me tell you-it will always be my go-to!

It took a lot for me to post these photos of my stomach, because I’m not fully healed, and I never expose it! But hey, beauty is skin deep guys, better to be natural and embrace your flaws then to be like the rest of ’em- photoshopped.  My goal is to actually get to the beach before I start classes! I hope you’re all enjoying the last of your summer, I’ll keep this short and sweet! 

Love who you are, fix things you want to improve, but realize you’re more than what you look like. It’s hard to feel comfortable with my stomach showing because it’s been my biggest weakness for years. But I’m working on it, and for now I realize I’ve held two huge and beautiful baby girls in this body, and I have the best man who loves me for me. I’m happy and healthy and that’s what counts. I remind myself of all of these blessings every single day, and this has helped me move past my looks and towards my goals!

Blushing w/summer whites 

It’s officially 30 days ’til this little girl joins us, making us a family of 4! So so crazy right?

I’ve been so busy and decided to focus on nesting non stop! I cleaned out my closet and found this white skirt again which I have been using as a tube-top this pregnancy!


I haven’t been able to make it to the beach (mostly because I get so burnt now while pregnant) okay and I’m so sweaty I don’t like cooking in the sun while carrying a 5lb baby 😳

I usually jump in, swim for a minute, then leave the beach….so therefore I’ve barely gotten color this summer and that’s okay! That’s exactly what the color white is for right? Haha


My “body suit” was a bathing suit I died over last summer and it’s the biggest one I have that fits, so I decided to transform it! Along with the blush suit, I threw on my blush booties from Necessary Clothing

These neutral tones are so flattering for a tan….or lack there of


Lastly I decided since I showed so much skin with this outfit I would throw on my cape from Style Heist !

Time for Ivory Elle to be here so so soon! So why not embrace some Ivory tones? And I’m embracing some swimming-pool-hair as well, haha 

Keeping this post short-n-sweet….did I mention how exhausted I’ve been…..💤💤💤

 

Sunsets + Shop Elle G

Hello All! In my last post I introduced one of my favorite local Boutiques, Elle G!

Their Spring Collection is out and who doesn’t love the biggest convenience of Spring-throwing on a dress! ‘Tis the Season of dresses, rompers, skirts and shorts making appearances from my closet!

Last Spring my favorites were skorts and shorts because it was so easy to pair them with cropped tops, or a tucked-in/tied-up tank!

Well, this Spring + Summer I’ll be nice and pregnant, so my wardrobe will have to adjust for sure! This is especially why I LOVE that I will be pregnant during the two seasons most popular for dresses!

This dress that I pulled from Elle G was a Springy Coral color, and such a girly choice (having a bow and all)! I loved wearing this dress after the sun went down because of how thin and breezy the material is! This dress was originally supposed to be tied as a halter dress, however I got super sun burned the first few days and my bathing suit left an “X” from the way I tied it, so like so I tied that way as well! I love adding new dimensions to a piece so simple!

This dress doesn’t come completely to floor length so I feel it should be worn with a lace-up sandal or wedge! It sure is the season of “laced-up-everything!”

I was on the beach at sunset, and am almost always barefoot!

Along with this dress option the owner Lauren pulled a cute dainty gold 2 layered necklace for me! I love love love layered necklaces! What’s better than getting 2-in-1?!

Here again I wore some sunnies, this time a brown pair from  H&M!

I highly suggest visiting Elle G on their Instagram @ Shop Elle G for more new arrivals + popular items that lace-up and cut-out!

Who doesn’t love coral on tan skin, or a beautiful beach sunset?!

 



Okay, im teasing myself already + want to be back there 😩 , and I’m sure I’m teasing you  all too!

Denim Dresses! 

The day before our last day in Florida was Ave + I in our Denim Dresses! A week before our road trip was Avynn’s 3rd Birthday, and my best friend purchased Ave’s adorable dress + fedora!

On this day, James, Avynn and I explored the neighborhood + fed the horses at the farm! The weather was overcast, and was also the perfect day for us to go thrift-shopping (my fave)!!

I’ve been styling Avynn since birth, and up until now she was always taking her accessories off and even her clothing- this baby hates clothing haha

Now that she’s 3-going-on-13 she loves to wear what “mommy wears” and she loves accessories, especially her shoes.

These lace-up gladiators I am so jealous of! I keep trying to snag a cute pair of lace-ups and they’re always sold out in my size! I believe these ones we grabbed from Target!

 

She loved this fedora, surprisingly because whenever we let her wear her hair down she usually wants it nice and free, haha

 

Our first stop of the day, after the farm was a little field next to my grandparents house! The grass was super long so we didn’t stay (I’m terrified for ticks)!

 

I have had these gladiator sandals since last summer, I snagged them at a shoe store in the Crystal Mall. Notice how she watches everything I do? Haha she wanted her foot up on the fence like mommy!


I wish I would have belted this shirt-dress, but I can’t even try to hide that belly! The denim dress was thrifted-I LOVE this one! Anything collared I snag! Also, my hat + sunnies are from H&M!

 Ave’s sunnies are from Children’s Place , and she refused to take off her birthday jewelry from my grandma, haha!
After the field we drove until we saw some pretty palms, because all I’ve wanted for a backdrop was some beautiful pops of color!

 


Again, I’m teasing myself + readers with these photos. We will be seeing sunny days soon!
