Happy Wednesday, friends! I've been shopping around for a great pair of faux leather leggings lately. I love pairing faux leather leggings with oversized sweaters and booties!

Falling For Beige

Monday, October 16, 2017


Happy Monday, friends! I hope everyone is getting their Monday morning coffee fix. I've been waiting for colder weather here in Houston so I can wear all my fall favorites. I'll be honest I'm still wearing huge sweaters in this 90 degree weather. lol! I'm obsessed with the tie sleeve trend and this cardigan is hits the mark. It's also the perfect beige tone for fall! This cardigan is currently 40% off making it under $60! It also comes in a few other colors that I'm loving for fall! I paired this cardigan with my new favorite booties! These are the perfect booties for fall and are so comfy!! They really do match with everything! What fall trends are you loving? Let me know in the comments!

Ava's Adios Dos Birthday Party

Wednesday, October 11, 2017


Happy Wednesday, friends! Over the weekend we celebrated Ava's third birthday! We went for a fiesta theme and called the party "Adios Dos"! Get it?! ;) Ava had a blast at her birthday party and we're so thankful to everyone that celebrated with us! 

I still can't believe my baby is three years old! It feels like just yesterday I was pregnant wondering what type of personality Ava would have. Time has gone by so fast and I really wish it would slow down! 

1. I love when you run up to me and say "mommy, I want to hold you!" It's the sweetest thing ever!
2. You have such a huge imagination! You're always playing pretend and asking me to play too. It's always so much fun being around you!
3. I love that after you eat something good you say "yummy in my tummy!!" 
4. I think it's so cute how you get super obsessed with one thing at a time. Like right now you're obsessing over My Little Pony and that's all you ever want to watch! Before that it was Sofia the First. I'm pretty sure we've seen every episode at least 20 times!
5. You are incredibly stubborn and independent. You want to do everything yourself and if anyone tries to tell you otherwise you throw a fit. 
6. You really do have the sweetest heart! You are always giving out hugs and calling everyone your friend! 
7. I love listening to you sing because you have the cutest voice ever!
8. You are OBSESSED with your daddy! You two always fall asleep cuddling together. I'm so happy you're a daddy's girl!
9. You are one smart cookie! You are very observant and have learned things on your own like how to use the remote to put on your favorite shows!
10. Being your mommy is the most rewarding thing in this world!! Being able to come home to you and love on you is the highlight of my day! Just know that mommy and daddy love you so much!! 



Where I Buy Affordable Fall Accessories

Blanket Scarf (only $10!) // Long Sleeve Tee // Distressed Jeans
Sole Society Bootie // Tory Burch York Tote

Happy Monday, friends! I love styling simple fall outfits with scarfs or wraps! It's such an easy way to bring a neutral outfit to life. I'm sure if you're constantly shopping like me you've noticed how outrages some fall accessories cost. For years I've been purchasing my scarves and wraps from a fairly well known site, SheIn. The blanket scarf I'm wearing in this post only costs $10 compared to some retailers that sell it for over $30. Some of their clothes are usually a hit or miss and if I'm going to buy a top for example I'll read through all the reviews to make sure it's worth it. However, their accessories NEVER fail to impress me! I've had this scarf for years and it's really held up well! If you're looking for affordable fall accessories I highly recommend checking them out.
