BLACK AND WHITE






 Yep, these pics are from Sunday, the first day of Spring and it was about 30 degrees (barf). Putting on a winter coat was the last thing I wanted to do on the first day of Spring...but so it goes. I think I will wait until next month to pack away my coats and heavy sweaters. Although, now is a great time to buy a winter coat for next year... some of my favorites below.

A CAPE AND LEOPARD PRINT




sunglasses: banana republic (similar), cape: aritzia (similar), sweatshirt: gap (similar), tee: brandy melville (similar), jeans: h&m, bag: fossil, pumps: steve madden (similar)


 My brandy melville tee is my favorite layering tee. You may not even notice it hanging out just below my sweatshirt, but without it, the outfit is just not the same. I need to replace this one since it has a small hole in it, but I am not going to part with it until I find one that is as perfect. The length is what makes it so great. It is 29 inches from the high point shoulder (where the shoulder seam meets the collar) down to the hem. So if you are looking for a great layering tee, I made sure all the similar tees I linked to below are the same length.

LONG BLOUSE







sunglasses: unknown (similar), blouse: nordstrom (sold out, similar & similar), leggings: asos, bag: fossil (other colorblock option), boots: charles by charles david 


Spring is in the air! I actually bought this blouse a while back for a holiday party. It was one of the last ones on the sale rack. If you hadn't noticed thats kinda how I roll. I have a hard time paying retail unless I love an item and I have a hunch it's going to sell out. But even then, it's all just stuff and there will always be things on our wish lists, feel me?

T-SHIRT & JEANS



h&m sunglasses, gap bag (similar), h&m sweater (similar), forever21 top (similar), topshop maternity jeans (similar non-maternity jeans), steve madden booties

Tyson and I have always talked about only having two children. We still feel this way and after this little boy is here our family is going to be complete. Because we are having another boy, family and friends often ask us if we are going to have a third, you know, go for a girl. I'm 99% behind saying, no, we are not going to have a third child.

What does all this have to do with the outfit above? Well...since I consider this to be my last pregnancy, I am not trying too hard to add to my maternity wardrobe. Although if I was, these jeans and this dress would be on their way to me ;)  These topshop jeans are the only actual maternity item in this outift. The black "tunic top" is actually a dress I hemmed from it's original state of a basic t-shirt maxi dress. I have worn this outfit many times. I change it up with my shoes, sunnies, jewelry and bag.

Below are some accessories I thought would work well in rotation...

Just Peachy






A few weeks ago I was early to meet a friend so I did some impromptu shopping at DSW. Some of the best finds happen when you aren't trying to find anything at all.

How to wear Joggers

When joggers became a trend, I was intrigued. Comfy pants for everyday wear?? Yes!! However, when I tried on my first few, I quickly came to the conclusion they were completely unflattering. After seeing countless styles in countless stores, I was determined to find a pair that I liked. I did and below are a few tips on how I wear joggers.

Some joggers I'm loving right now... happy shopping!
