If you've picked up any fall fashion magazines (yes I love to read about fall fashion while sitting poolside all summer!) you might already know that one of the upcoming season's most talked about trends is fall moody florals. If just hearing the words, "fall moody florals" has you breaking out in hives and sends you into a panic, please let me reassure you. I'm hear to break down the trend and make it easy for you. After all, in my humble opinion, this is one the most wearable trends we've seen in awhile. It's no...

Plaid Shirts: Our Forever Fall Favorite

Plaid-Horiz

If you made me choose one piece that I would have to wear every single fall season, it would probably be the plaid shirt. Plaid shirts never go out of style and I have more of them in my wardrobe than a girl probably needs, bwah! But I can't seem to help myself. I appear to be curating a large and in charge plaid shirt collection with no plans of stopping said curation any time soon. You see, my fall wardrobe, like most of my wardrobe, has a decidedly casual chic vibe. And plaid shirts...

How to Make a Diaper Cake

How to Make A Diaper Cake

Disclosure: This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Pampers and Luvs at Sam’s Club. The opinions and text are all mine. It's baby season!! I know that might seem funny to say when we all have fall pumpkins and boots on the brain but I swear it's true! According to the experts, an average of 12,250 babies are born each day during the summer and early fall. That's ONE THOUSAND more babies a day than the rest of the year! My head is spinning just thinking of all those baby showers! As you...

Favorite Women’s Running Gear

Throughout the process of training for and running in my first half marathon (you can read all of those details here) I tested and tried out a lot of women's running gear. After all, I was hitting the pavement every other day for over six months. And while no two runners are alike, yes apparently we runners are all precious snowflakes, I thought I would share what women's running gear truly worked best for me. There are some shorts, socks and even headphones I tried that did not make my race day cut. With all...

Running My First Half Marathon

Running my first half marathon

If you follow along on Instagram or Facebook (I mean of course you do. If not head on over!) you might have seen that a few weeks ago I ran my first half marathon. I had been very quiet online about my training so it might have come as a surprise to some when the day before I started blowing up my feeds with photos. After all, training for a fitness goal like this when you start off barely able to make it running down the street, becomes a bit all consuming. How had I...

My Favorite Summer Finds

I recently returned from our annual summer trip to our family's vacation home in the Blue Ridge Mountains and, as always, had a wonderful time. I tried to unplug as much as I could and really soak in every moment that I spent with my hubs and kiddos. This is our last summer before our baby starts kindergarten. That's right! Next year both of my babes will be in school full time. How crazy is that? Pretty crazy if you ask me. Haha! So, you could say this mama was feeling a bit emotional on our...

Chicco Fit2 LE Makes Staying Rear Facing Easy

Review of the Chicco Fit2 LE

Finding a car seat that you love can feel overwhelming. Especially for first time expecting moms. There is so much information to sift through to make sure your precious little one stays as safe as possible. With car seat safety recommendations stating that children should be rear-facing until 2-years-old, the Chicco Fit2® LE 2-Year Rear-Facing Infant & Toddler Car Seat makes meeting that guideline easy. Which is really saying something. As children are growing, it is important to find a car seat that will grow with them and meet the safety recommendations. I was excited to...

Embroidered Sleeveless Sundress

Embroidered Sleeveless Sundress

A few months ago Kristin and I shared some of our dressing room selfies as we prepped for updating our summer wardrobes. One item I ended up purchasing is this Caslon embroidered sleeveless sundress from Nordstrom. I had never tried on the brand until that day and I found several things I really liked. I'd been meaning to then show you guys this embroidered sleeveless sundress in an outfit post and yet somehow the summer started slipping by. I did end up wearing it during my trip to Napa a few weeks ago and thought I...
