These Pictures were taken after one of Athena's first blogger events. She came with to our friend Preston's store, Uptown Cheapskate in South Jordan and had a great time smiling at everyone and picking up any small objects on the floor. Over all she did a great job for a toddler in a store that was not contained in a stroller. 

After the event a few of my girlfriends and I popped over to Daybreak and took some outfit pictures. Naturally Athena was in mine because quite honestly what else am I going to do with her? Let her roam free? Ha! She definitely tried but my pal Jenni distracted her with the ducks in the pond. 

Overall, I try to take her out an about with me but we definitely have a small window of time on most things where we have to stay in a confined place, but that still doesn't mean we wont try to have a good time! And I sure get a workout in from chasing her. This little chick is FAST!

Tee // Skirt: H&M (sold out online but I saw a bunch in the store. Loving this new release! // Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAB tote // Shoes: Old J. Crew (loving these red ones for only $45) // Sunglasses (these $70 designer dupes sell out so fast!)

Sometimes it seems too good to be true that Utah has so many beautiful parks. This is just one of them. It's called the International Peace Gardens and it's full of picturesque spots and yet it's never super crowded so it's such a relaxing place to hang out. Andrew first took me here for a Mother's day picnic last year and we love going back whenever we can because Athena can run around.

This outfit was a little dressy for a weekend afternoon but since we were planning to go here, I knew the colors would look so pretty next to this gorgeous covered walkway.  This tee was a last minute grab on the way out of the mall. I spotted it out of the corner of my eye and it was $10 bucks so I figured why not. I love how it makes this dressy skirt a little more casual. 







Yellow for Spring

Lace Tee // Shortalls // Bag: Vintage // Shoes: Old Target but very similar here

I'm so excited to introduce you to yet another new bag baby. I know it may seem like I'm investing in a lot of new bags lately but I usually never buying new ones and I wind up wearing the same one nonstop for months on end. After I got that gorgeous little pale pink circle bag, up popped the black and white circle bag and it was only $45 bucks so how could I say no? Then I was vintage shopping and found this beauty for only $24 bucks. It had a pretty hideous leather flower on it but a few seconds with a wire cutter and off it came and the result was gorgeous! I think I'm cut off from bag shopping for awhile now though.

So what I really want to talk to you about is my love for the color yellow. It's seriously one of my favorite colors to wear but I feel like it's really hard to find anything in a really good shade of yellow. Lately I've been seeing a bunch pop up and I thought what better place to share these new found yellow loves than in this post featuring this bright yellow lace top. Its got a knit, tee-shirt material back so it's essentially party in the front, comfy in back. It paired surprisingly well with my new gray shortalls (that I have in two colors btw because they are THAT good) and of course my new vintage bag to complete this ladylike spin on overalls. See, overalls aren't just for toddlers.

So, your thoughts on yellow? Think you can't pull it off or you love it as much as I do? Let me know below! And shop all my favorite pieces below, just click on the pic!

On Athena: Jacket // Jeans // Bonnet

Truth be told, spring is really kicking the crap out of me. It started with Athena getting yet another ear infection and just when I was able to see the light at the end of the tunnel known in the teacher world as Spring break, I was given some super devastating news from a close friend that took me unexpectedly out of state on a red-eye across the country a few days ago. Hopefully I'll be able to share more on that soon because I'm going to need some support from all of you. 

While all this is really making me feel like I've got a huge pit in my stomach, and it's hard to talk about fashion when other things seem so much more important, this little girl right here is my sunshine every damn day. I love her so much and she makes everything seem like it's going to be alright as long as I've got her by my side! I'm so grateful for my little family and this life we have created out here in Utah. 

So with those positive vibes in mind and my sweet little spring chicken in tow, We headed over to the State capitol to see the cherry blossom trees that are in full bloom. Athena had a blast chasing every single puppy she saw and Andrew and I loved this it's still kind of cold outside. We are cold people, it's just the way we are, and I advise you to find someone who shares your liking of the same climate because it's the secret to a good marriage, I swear.

Anyway, I am excited to introduce my new circle bag because she's a real beauty and my first ever item that was monogramed and with my "new" initials. I finally legally changed my last name a few months ago after 6 years of marriage! My circle bag was a steal compared to it's Mansur Gavriel twin that rings in at around $800!

So I hope Spring is treating you kindly  and that you have a great start to your week. I head back to school tomorrow and we are in the home stretch till summer break. It's so close but so far away.


Straw and Circle Bags

Sunday, March 25, 2018

This really is the biggest trend I've seen in a long time. And like any good trend it will pass. so why not grab an affordable option of this new circle bag trend instead of investing the big bucks?

I'm telling you now, these will sell out! Many already have and some are even on Pre-order only! Almost all of these are under $75 so scoop one up fast and be ready to rock this trend when the weather warms up. Ready? Go!
