New Obsession

Happy November 1st!! I’m one of those crazy people that considers this the first day of the Christmas season, so obviously I’m listening to Christmas music and drinking peppermint coffee!! Don’t judge! Haha

The kiddos had a blast trick or treating the last few nights! Well, Libbey had fun and Bennett doesn’t know what is going on, but we let him have his first sucker and he just thought it was the greatest! They were so stinkin cute!! We only go trick or treating to family and close friends, but it takes two nights! I didn’t get any really good pictures because Bennett won’t stand still for more than 5 seconds and Lib is too busy trying to open candy🙈

 

The outfit I’m wearing below is from this past weekend! I’m obsessed with my boots! I think I’ll ask for a few more colors of them for Christmas!! I got them a few months ago from the Nordstrom anniversary sale!!! They are super comfortable and run true to size!!

Dress: Old Navy, similar

Boots: Steve Madden

Sunnies: Quay

Clutch: GiGi New York

Necklace: Olive & Piper, Stella & Dot

(sorry for the blurry iPhone pics, forgot the camera, but wanted to show you guys my outfit because everything is available!)

Southern at Heart

Oh my goodness you guys, I’m sooooo sorry it has been like 3 weeks since I posted! My family and I went on vacation to Savannah, Georgia and Tybee Island for a few weeks! I’m obsessed with Savannah! Like, I want to move there ASAP!! I swear I was meant to be a southern belle!! I wish!! I was hoping to come home with a southern accent!! I love everything about the south!! The people are so sweet!!! We did a few tours and did the pedal tour around Savannah! So much fun!!!! The houses are aaaamazing!!! Food was fantastic!! Obviously, I could go on and on! Tybee Island was also very nice!! The beach wasn’t as crowded as most and the water was fairly warm! Miss Libbey loved everything about the beach!! She of course ate sand more than once, but it didn’t faze her one bit! I was sure she wouldn’t like the salt water, but it didn’t bother her! She is quite the little beach babe!! She spent the day making drip castles, chasing the tide, covering me in sand, and saying “Hi!” to everyone in sight!

Make a Statement

Hello Hello!!

Below is an outfit I wore last week to take Miss Libbey to the doctor. I was in a hurry, so I just threw something together! I usually throw on a statement necklace if I feel like I need to spice up my outfit a little! I love huge necklaces! They can totally make an outfit! This necklace is a good piece to help me transition in to spring! I love the colors! You will probably see me wearing it all the time! Don’t judge me!

Bald is Beautiful

Good morning!! I hope it is warmer where you are! It was 3 degrees when I got in my car this morning..really winter??? Enough already!!!
I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! I spent the weekend with my sister and on Saturday we had a “head shaving party!” My cousin was recently diagnosed with brain cancer. She is currently undergoing chemo and radiation. She is doing so well! I have never seen someone so positive and upbeat! She is the strongest, most amazing person I know. She definitely does not let cancer get her down! She just says that it is “God’s will and she is not afraid!” I feel I take life for granted a lot , so I’m trying to slow down and learn from my cousin and cherish every moment! One of my cousins owns a hair salon, so we had food and beverage and she shaved heads! All of the money from the hair cuts is going to be donated to St. Jude’s Hospital! I am so proud of my cousin! She is so selfless! She could care a less about hair!! She definitely rocks the bald head! She is beautiful!!

Pink & Red

My little Libbey hasn’t felt well, since she she had her shots on Friday, which is why I have been MIA for a few days. She needed extra cuddles!! So, obviously we haven’t left the house, so I spent the last few days thinking about what to wear for Valentine’s Day! I love any excuse to wear lots of pink!!! Duuuuh!!! Plus, it is 3 days after my anniversary! J.D. and I will be celebrating our 2nd anniversary on February 11th!! Best two years of my life<3

20140122-212253.jpg

The pink sweater and blouse are from JCrew Factory! They aren’t online, but check the stores! I just got them both last week in Austin!!! The wedges are Steve Madden from last year, but here are some I looove! The necklace is from a local flower shop, but love this! The skinnies are old, but like these and they are on sale!

I think this blouse is super festive! I got it at TJ Maxx, but this one is also cute! The black jeggings are old, but I like these and looove this hat!! The nude pumps are Steve Madden! Every girl needs a nude pump! My necklace is from Sam Moon, but I can’t find it online, but like this one!

20140123-101842.jpg

I am obsessed with polka dots! They are so classic! This dress is from Forever 21! I like this one!! The pumps are also from Forever 21, but they are old! These are cute! I also love this necklace!! I got the pink clutch at Target over the summer! This one is super cute!
