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!

Coming to you very quick as I write this on a school night. My Family was in from Chicago and we had a busy but fun weekend in Park City. I think I have the energy to even write this at all because Athena slept for 17 hours last night! I'm not exaggerating! We took her with us tubing and I think we wore her out. I'm not complaining.

I'm starting to get really excited about spring for obvious reasons but the other is that I'm FINALLY loosing some weight. It's been a really hard battle to figure out what works for me since having Athena. After always being pretty successful eating mostly whole 30 recipes, and then it not working for me AT ALL post baby. I realized I'd make a recipe that needed vegetables added to complete it and then I'd wind up just eating the protein part and not have time to cut up and prep all the veggies. Anyone who's done a whole 30 knows the prep work is a beast. 

Finally my doctor suggested just using all that I learned from Whole 30 like what foods make me feel bad and then just counting calories. And after a month it's working! I'm down about 14lbs! I use the My Fitness Pal App and it's super easy! I'm not where I want to be yet but I'm going with slow and steady for now.

So as I said I'm excited for spring because of bare legs and pretty dresses like this one here but also for buying clothes in smaller sizes and shopping my own closet of things that used to fit prebaby! I even went and exchanged a bunch of stuff for smaller sizes today and it felt so good!

This dress and all others at Target are buy one get one 50% off so if you want to get some new cute dresses for spring, now is a great time to do so. 

Have a great Monday all!

Well hi there! It's been awhile. I feel like all my posts in the last year seem to start like that. Time escapes me every day so I'm pretty darn happy that my pal Sandy and I could meet up (with the kiddos at daycare) and take some outfit photos. Guys. It's been too long. I pretty much forgot how to smile, walk and look at a camera.

This is the look I wore to school yesterday and it was mighty comfy. I picked up these linen pants last summer at the Shopbop sale and haven't worn them much since, until today. I must have gotten 5 compliments on them at school so they are teacher approved.

I think my most worn pairs of shoes are my driving loafers and I'm partial to my Coach loafers that I have in white and gold. I remember being so hesitant about buying both pairs but years later they are still my go-tos for comfy on-my-feet-all-day shoes.

This knit moto jacket looks like suede but happens to be really soft stretchy knit material. It was so popular last Fall that they re released it in 7 new colors! Great price point as well. I may need to pick it up in another color. Bonus that it comes in tall sizes as well.
