Good morning and happy Thursday, dear friends! Pink and blue are two of my favorite colors, especially when combined, such as with this Mary-Jane dress, which feels soft as silk. Truly a delight to wear! The front has buttons, a classic collar, and contrast along the folded cuff. Not to be outdone, the navy blue coat has the same pattern as the dress for the lining and an adorable bow at the neck. I must say, I loveeee matching and bows making this one flawless combo to wear. Not only is the bow on the coat chic, but it’ll also keep the wind at bay on those chilly winter days. Practical and stylish!

If anyone is looking for something new to watch on Netflix, I just started The Politician and it is soooo good! I’m two episodes in and completely hooked. It’s about an ambitious high school student who wants to be president of the United States. The first thing he must do is navigate the political landscape of highschool. I love how they intertwine some political history into the story along with the comedy, drama, and insight on how to achieve being a politician.

This dress! I love a good pleated dress for the beautiful movement it allows and also the distinct femininity it has. This was a huge hit at Ava’s school too! So many moms came up to me to tell me how much they liked the dress. A true winner in my book when that happens. The color is incredibly vibrant and stunning too. It’s lightweight and comes with a sash for the belt, which is essential since there is technically no waist to the dress without it. The dress fits true to size (i’m in an XS for reference.)

First off, happy 11th Anniversary to Shein! I’ve been working with them for about four years now and I am so happy to see them continue to succeed. I was asked to put together five different fall themed outfits for their celebration, which is what this post is all about. I wanted the outfits to range from casual cozy to chic and glam, which represents all of the different styles you can find at Shein. All pieces fit true to size and helped ring in the new month of October today. A very happy October to you as well! Two frequent questions I get asked about Shein would be their shipping and quality. I’ve never experienced an issue with shipping, which takes about a week in a half to two weeks to arrive. The quality depends on the item chosen. Obviously, a $5 top will differ from a $40 dress. That being said, I’ve received some amazing pieces a great prices, like this leopard coat, which is only $45. A true steal! No joke, it kept me sooooo incredibly warm that I was almost sweating. All of their pieces in this post are under $50. While typically thought of as an affordable trendy fast fashion destination, they also carry pieces that are classic staples, which I tend to gravitate towards, though I do like to try out some trendy pieces here and there! Once again, a very happy anniversary to them.

Happy Friday, friends! There’s nothing like a Friday afternoon with the whole weekend ahead of you. It’s without a doubt one of my favorite times of the week! This look above is a fun one for having a night out of the town with friends or significant others. The faux leather dress adds a little bit of edge while the ruffles along the waist add a chic feminine flair. I love the dress alone, but also paired with a top underneath like this leopard one. For practical reasons, it’ll keep you warm, but it also adds a nice pop of pattern!

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend! We have some church events, a bonfire, and going to a pumpkin patch planned. The weather looks like its going to be spectacular too. Cheers everyone!

Happy Thursday, everyone! It’s a rainy day here today, but I’m throwing it back to an outfit I wore a few weeks ago. I meant to post it earlier, but was very sick all of last week so now i’m playing catch up. This look is all about some of my favorite fall textures, patterns, and colors that make me smile. Tweed is an absolute staple in my fall wardrobe, especially for blazers like this hounds tooth one. Another favorite is corduroy, whether its jackets, blazers, pants, or skirts like this golden yellow one, which also happens to be one of my favorite fall colors along with the forest green sweater I’m wearing. I have a thick cable knit green sweater that I wear and have worn for years and years. It’s a go-to for me so stocking up on this color is a no brainer. Speaking for the style side of fall, all of the different the textures and patterns is why I love it so much. It’s a chance to layer up and explore different possibilities.

Good morning! If there’s one print this season that’s standing out from the crowd and trending widely, it’s animal print. I’ve always been a huge fan of leopard and use it as a neutral for many of my outfits. This fall, ALL animals prints from snake, leopard, cheetah, and zebra are huge and add a fun dimension to your wardrobe. This zebra dress I’m wearing is silky to the touch and feels amazing on. I love how it’s actual zebra’s on the dress too. I couldn’t find the specific dress online, but they do have a top with the print. This leather moto jacket actually goes with the dress and has the same zebra print for the lining. I actually have the jacket on now for the chilly mornings we’ve been having. It’s the perfect weight for cool mornings and evenings.

With gorgeous pearl detailing along the front, neck, cuffs, and pockets, this piece is sure to keep you polished all season long.

Also, may we never forget the horrific events of September 11th, 2001 and pray for all of those affected. It’s hard to believe it’s been 18 years already. I remember that day crystal clear as if it were yesterday. All of the victims, their family’s, friends, and loved ones are in my thoughts today and everyday.

Good morning and happy Monday, friends! Theres something incredibly elegant about creamy tones in the fall and winter. I instantly think of Jackie Kennedy during JFK’s inaugural address. While many of the women attending the event were in dark winter colors of navy and black, she stood out in a beautiful camel colored coat dress, matching pillbox hat, and white elbow length gloves. I can’t help but to think of Kate Middleton as well, who is always so effortlessly chic and polished. This cream colored coat with an inner twill lining and front patch pockets exudes the very same elegance Jackie carried with her on that historic day. The also comes with a matching cream dress. Both fit true to size.

A huge congrats to the Green Bay Packers on their win over the Chicago Bears last night for the opening of the football season! Ava was super excited to see her guy, Aaron Rodgers on the screen again. She kept taking photos of him throughout the game, haha.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! If you’re in the path of Hurricane Dorian, please stay safe. We’re only supposed to get a few rain showers from the storm, but to everyone else affected, you are in our prayers.

Good morning and happy Wednesday, friends! One item on my bucket list has always been to visit a flower farm and over this past weekend, it finally became a reality! What dreamy day it was too. The weather was absolutely perfect for taking in all of natures splendor. The views were breathtaking and gave an overall sense of calm when gazing out upon the colorful land. Needless to say, Ava and I had an absolute blast. She loved seeing all of the sunflowers, zinnia’s, and especially running through the vast fields. Not only are there flower fields, but the Lakeland Orchard (a part of Roba’s Family Farms) also has a vast array of activities for the entire family to enjoy. Along with the sunflower and zinnia festival, there is also apple picking, an antique carousel, the cow train express, a pumpkin bounce, a giant corn box to play in, various yard games, toy duck races, a goat corral, a hippity hop bounce corral, the cider garden, and for the “young at heart” there is also hard cider available. There’s also food and drinks at the orchard cafe with the cider slushee’s being a big hit with everyone! I believe in later fall there are also fire pits available to enjoy as well. There is a small admission fee, but if you purchase the tickets ahead of time online, they are cheaper. Along with the admission fee, you are able to cut one flower a piece for free. You can cut more flowers if you wish for an additional cost. To check out more about the farm, click here.

With the stunning weather, Ava and I dressed in our floral dresses for the fun flower filled day. I love slowly transitioning to darker florals as the seasons progress. This particular dress has a beautiful dark green background with golden cascading leaves and pretty pink flowers. The perfect dress to compliment fall. The dress fits true to size. I’m wearing an XS.

Check out below for some family photos from the orchard!

Happy Labor Day weekend, friends! The last hurrah of summer is upon us and while I’m sad to see summer go, I’m anxiously anticipating all that Fall has to offer. I just recently picked up some pumpkin spice k-cups and look forward to sipping the autumn brew each morning. While slowly starting to incorporate some fall items into my life, I’ve also started adding some fall pieces into my wardrobe, including this beautiful plaid tweed shift dress. Talk about a true classic with a tailored touch! I adore wearing plaid and tweed pieces in the fall, especially when they’re so beautifully paired together into one standout frock. The dress fits true to size. I’m wearing a size 2.

I hope everyone enjoys their long weekend! Cheers to the unofficial end of summer! It truly was a memorable one with so many highlights that I hold near and dear to my heart. Also, a big congrats to my future sister-in-laws brother getting married this weekend!

I must admit, when it comes to exercising, I am not knowledgeable at all. I wouldn’t even pretend to be, though I do like to stay healthy and find taking walks, jogging, or hiking to be my favorite ways to get and stay active. Not to mention chasing after Ava all day, haha! Ava and I both have our favorite outdoor spots to get active at and for me personally, I find dressing the part always helps motivate me to get out and exercise as much as I can. I love a simple tank, leggings, and sneaks in summer. If I’m at home, I’ll switch the tank out for a sports bra. When the weather starts to cool, I throw on an active sweatshirt with leggings and sneaks. It’s very low key, but still helps get me in the exercise mindset! Below are some of my recent activewear favorites. Also, I always love to have coconut water with me when exercising.

With Autumn right around the corner, this classic navy dress from Chicwish has all the right elements to keep you nautically chic from head to toe. The knit fabric is perfect for that in-between weather with cool crisp mornings and warm sunny afternoons. The pleated skirt is simply darling and allows for the swish movement I swoon over. The gold buttons and white self-tie bowknot on the neck add to the nautical charm. The sizing runs true to size. I’m wearing a size small and found it to be very comfortable. This is one of those dresses that will be a staple piece for years to come. Classic pieces are classic for a reason. They never go out of style and can move through each decade without losing their sophistication. It’s also fantastic to wear for work or out with friends. Truly a versatile piece.

Also, if you’re looking for some shows to watch on Netflix, I finished both In The Dark and What If. Both of them kept my interest and on the edge of my seat. I couldn’t stop watching! I started Mind Hunters too, which I highly recommend if you like a psychological thrill. It’s slower, but incredibly well done.

For me, a white dress feels just a refreshing to wear as it looks. This gorgeous white crochet midi dress is a true stunner and is sure to turn heads! This is the outfit I wore for Sunday brunch this past weekend. The hem has sheer detailing along with the waist having a cutout pattern. The dress fits true to size. I’m wearing a UK size 6.

Good morning and happy Wednesday, friends! Last night, Ava, my dad and I, all had an absolutely marvelous time getting to experience one of my favorite television shows on the big screen! Five newly colorized episodes of I Love Lucy, plus a documentary on the colorization process, were shown for fans of all ages to enjoy the show like never before. We even received some Lucy posters from Cinemark to celebrate the one night event. What a treat it was to watch Lucy with fans who truly love the show and to be able to hear Ava laugh out loud at her crazy antics! It’s a night I will never forget.

This two piece button front set has a romantic carefree feeling to it similar to how I think of the long golden days of summer. Though I typically do not wear too many cropped pieces, this top paired with the high waisted skirt show just the right amount of skin. It’s a playful and flirty outfit that’s perfect for the hot and humid days. I also love a two piece set since you can mix and match the items with different pieces already in your wardrobe. Both pieces fit true to size. I’m wearing an XS.
