Black Boho Crochet Blouse

Black Boho Crochet Blouse

Over the years, Kristin and I have both spent a lot of time in New York. And while we may be Florida girls at heart that love a good bright maxi, I've come to really appreciate an "all black" look that nobody does as well as a New Yorker. It can be a powerful vibe, especially in the office, that is easy to pull together. When I bought this black boho crochet blouse (it also comes in white!) I had intended to wear it with distressed light denim. But as we move into the fall...

Frozen Strawberry Pie

Frozen Strawberry Pie

Summer isn't quite over yet! I'm still loving warm temperatures and cool treats! This frozen strawberry pie, featuring Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk, is easy to make and can be made ahead and left in the freeze until you are ready to serve it to your guests. Even better is that it is easy enough that my kids were able to get in the kitchen and help make it with me. I love when that happens! Frozen Strawberry Pie Graham Cracker Crust Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups of crushed graham crackers. (My kids love to help with this part!) 1/2...

August Stitch Fix Unboxing and Try On Video

August Stitch Fix Unboxing and Try On

You guys know how I love my Stitch Fix. Having fashion delivered directly to my door makes my life so easy. I really do like the intrigue of someone else picking out what they think would be just right for me and my body type. And sending back the items that aren't exactly perfect for me is so seamless. So this month I'm happy to share with you my August Stitch Fix unboxing and try on video. Take a look and let me know what you love or would have sent back. I was a...

Why You Should Take Your Family to Durham

The Durham Hotel

If you follow us on Instagram or Facebook, you might have noticed that I took my boys on a road trip to Durham, North Carolina. A few friends had posted pictures and raved about the Museum of Life and Science and we had a few days in our summer calendar with nothing booked. Cue the sounds of my jingling the keys itching to hit the road. The drive is approximately 4 1/2 hours from DC to Durham so I figured why not? Unfortunately, Floyd was unable to make it so my Mom joined in on the...

CVS Curbside Pickup, Errands Made Easy

CVS Curbside Pickup

Have you ever been running errands and feel like you’ve pushed your kids to the brink of a meltdown? I’ve certainly been there! I have a friend who swears by having no more than three in-and-out of the car seat transitions in one outing. I started paying attention with my own children and sure enough that seems to be the threshold of how much my little guys can take before they start getting restless and losing it. Let’s face it, no matter how necessary it might be, getting them in and out of car seats for...

Peplum and Ties, A Nautical Look

Peplum J Crew Top

You might remember way back in May, yes I did say wayyyy back, when Kristin and tackled some summer trends and dressing room selfies. Where did that time go?! We had a great time shopping together for the season but once I got home and looked at the photos I really regretted not purchasing the silk top from J. Crew featuring peplum and ties. It was still full price at the time but I loved the look. Fast forward to a few weeks ago when I stumbled upon it on the sale rack. I snapped it...

Plaid Shirts: Our Forever Fall Favorite

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

womens 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...
