Fall Staples

   
    
   

Vest: Elle & Bee Co.

Top: TJ Maxx(similar)

Leggings: Zilla

Booties: Vince Camuto

Beanie: Elle & Bee Co.

Sunnies: Quay

Hello!!! Hope you all had a great weekend and fab Monday!! I decided to decorate my house instead of blog yesterday!! The kids loooove all the decorations! Miss Lib was very in to it and Bennett just kept pointing to things and would say “that that!” Libbey walked down stairs this morning and said “oh mama, everything looks so prettiful!”

I’m obsessed with the look above! Faux fur, beanies, and booties are definitely fall stables for this mama!

So, we took the kiddos to Chicago over the weekend to do some Christmas shopping and watch the Magnificent Mile parade! Libbey looooved the parade! Minnie and Mickey light all the  Christmas lights down Michigan Avenue! We had to stand in our spot for three hours prior to have a good spot. It was freeeeezing! The kiddos were napping and of course all bundled up and covered in blankets, so JD kept our spot and I spent a few hours in Nordstrom!!

Faux Fur Friday

Happy Friday!! I can’t believe February is almost over… I’m ready for spring and warmer weather, but not ready for my babies to get older, so I’m trying not to wish time away! We still have so much snow on the ground, but it is supposed to be like 60 out tomorrow! The weather is cray cray!
   
    
 
Dress: Sheinside(I have this dress in 3 colors! You all need it!)

Vest: Forever 21(on sale!) I also like this and this! I’m faux fur obsessed!

Leggings: Gap

Boots: TJ Maxx, want these!

Boot Cuffs: Similar here

Earrings: Francesca’s (can’t find mine online), like these!

Necklace: Purple Peridot(on sale!)

So, I’m kinda hoping this is the last time I wear faux fur… Wishful thinking..we probably have one more good snow coming… Oh well!!
Have a great weekend!!

Five Fave Ways to Wear Leggings

Hola my lovely readers! So, I’m doing something a little different today! Most of you know that I have a two year old and a four month old, so I have little time to get myself ready in the mornings…which is why you see me wearing leggings multiple times a week… I used to be one of those who refused to wear yoga pants or leggings outside of the house. Well, times have changed! Haha I ADORE leggings! I like my top to be long though! I love that you can dress leggings up or keep them casual and simple! Below I’m going to share a few of my favorite ways to style leggings! I guess you could call this my “Leggings Lookbook!”

You guys!! I can’t stop wearing my faux fur vest!! I have multiple, but the one above is just sooooo soft and it has pockets!! What?!?! I know, amazing! I feel like faux fur can really spice up any outfit… That’s what I tell myself anyway!

I cannot believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve! I’m kind of sad it is already here.. I love the baking, decorating, shopping, and family time, so I’m sad to see it all end… I’m not going lie, I will still watch Elf and the Hallmark channel for at least another week!
