Sweater: StyleWe

Leggings: Gap

Boots: Hunter Boots, lighter pink here!

Hat: (old), want this one!

Hope you all had a fabulous Monday! I finally caught up on house cleaning and might attempt to put my tree up tomorrow!!! Libbey is very excited! I’m sure Bennett will tear half of the ornaments down before lunch! Oh well! There is just something about having your house decorated for Christmas! It feels so cozy!

So, today I’m wearing another piece from StyleWe! I’m OBsessed with the sweater above! My sister says I own too many that look the same, but I think that is nonsense! No such thing as too many sweaters! The weather in the midwest as been abnormally warm, so I’m kinda excited that it is getting chilly!! I love me a chunky sweater!! I’m trying not to let myself  order anymore, but StyleWe has some super cute ones right now!

Thanks for reading!

Helloooooooo! Hope you all had a great weekend! We were soooooo busy last week/weekend! We had family visiting from Texas all week and it was Miss Libbey’s third birthday on Thursday, so obviously we celebrated most of the week!!! She got to go the zoo, pumpkin patch, and Disney on Ice!! She got a dollhouse from me and JD! It is huge! I didn’t realize it was going to be so big! Oooooops🙈 She keeps asking if she can have a candle in her donut or waffle every morning! Silly girl! I still can’t believe she is three😢 Our sweet Libbey Jane is the most energetic, sassy, and sweet three year old! She loves her brother with her whole heart and loves to makes us laugh! She has made me love in a way that I never knew I could!

Hat: Old, love this one!

Top: TJ Maxx(just got it last week!)

Leggings: Gap

Boots: Hunter

Bracelets: Alex & Ani

Necklace: Stella & Dot (mine says “mama”)

Hellooooo!!! So, it is gloomy once again, so obviously I had to break out the Hunter Boots!! I haven’t worn them all summer.. That’s crazy because I usually wear them multiple times a week!! Don’t worry, I’ll be wearing them nonstop this fall and winter😉 Lib loves her Hunters too! The girl puts them on as soon as she gets out of bed!! She is her mother’s daughter!🙈 I’m thinking about getting her the black ones for her birthday next month! Mine need polished soooo bad! I have the spray, but it seems to only help for a few days! If anyone has any suggestions on how to keep them shiny please send them my way!!!

Thanks for reading!!

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!”

It had been a long four weeks waiting for today! We told family what the doctor thinks the gender is, but I wanted to wait until after today to blog about it and tell friends! Can’t wait to see our little one again! I promise I won’t keep you guys waiting much longer!
