Bluebells

Well hello, friends!  Spring is here and its hard to not feel refreshed and inspired again with all the beautiful colors, flowers, & Spring fashion!  I always feel more motivated in the Spring to update my blog and visit different parks and places to shoot some photos!  I heard about this semi-local park and their famous Bluebells late last year, and couldn't wait to see them in-person the first chance I had!  When I scooped up this dress on major sale at Nordstrom recently, I thought it would be the perfect outfit to shoot with the Bluebells!  Also, today is the annual Light it Up Blue for Autism, so a post centered around the color Blue only felt appropriate!  The outfit is simple, but the Bluebells are amazing!  I hope you all have a beautiful weekend, and don't forget to Light it up Blue for Autism today! 

Huge props to my photographer boyfriend for this shot....I'm kind of obsessed with it!

Neulash: The Lash Gem!

Its been no secret that up until 2 months ago, I was at war with my lashes.  Whether it was the mascara I was using, the daily wear of false eyelashes/glue or the weather (totally kidding), they were sparse, short, would not hold a curl, stick straight - and stuck straight out!  I asked for recommendations in some of my videos and a common response was Neulash.  I did some research, read awesome reviews and loved the fact that it was so easily accessible (Macys, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom).  I loved the fact that I didn't need a prescription from my dermatologist and the price point was great compared to others on the market.  I was SOLD!  2 months later, {SPOILER ALERT} I am SO happy to report that not only does this stuff deliver, but the difference is dramatic!  I'll let the pictures do the talking.....(please forgive the scary eyeball photos and lack of makeup.  I wanted to show you them clean and without any makeup enhancing my eyes or lashes.  

My lashes today!

I am OBSESSED with this stuff!  I cannot believe what it has done for my lashes and I never want to be without it!  Its so nice to see a product deliver in such a short time!  Just a few things to note....I have not experienced any adverse reactions, the application process takes all of 30 seconds and is in the form of a thin eyeliner brush, and I apply it every night before bed.  If any of you are having eyelash woes....put this little jewel on your list for Santa, I promise you and your lashes will be so glad you did!

Mini Style: Fall Fashion!


With my favorite season comes another favorite for a lot of parents - back to school!  Though I am still coping with the fact that my baby is now going to Nursery school -WAHHHHH (its literally 4 hours a week, but STILL!) I'm all for any reason to shop for my little girl! And with all this new fall fashion, its so hard to contain myself!  Seriously, I just can't with all of these little outfits and accessories!  Its crazy how easy it is to find just about any fashion trend in miniature sizes these days!  Makes it super easy for the crazy Mom's like myself that want to match their minis! Here's a round-up of favorites I've picked up for my mini!  Joggers, window pane prints & puffer vests on your little one? Yes, please!
P.S. I really have to hand it to Old Navy....they have really been stepping up their game!!

Palms Anyone?

It wasn't until my new Planner cover arrived in the mail that I realized just how many things I have that contain this very trendy pattern.  I don't know what it is about Palms - their clean and fresh and I can't seem to get enough of them. While it is obviously very trendy at the moment, I think that it can also lean a little on the neutral side of fashion (think leopard print). For someone who probably has less prints in my wardrobe that I can count on one hand, it caught me off guard by just how much I love it!  Thankfully, I am not the only one obsessing over it and therefore it is literally being splashed on every.item.imaginable!  My palms collection is beginning to look a lot like my embarrassing white T-shirt collection!  The crazy thing is, for as many things as I own decked out in Palms, I'm not tired of it and in fact I'm plotting my next purchase (hello, new throw pillows).  Here are a few things to check out if you find yourself in the same boat and going a little goo-goo-ga-ga for the palm print!
How do you feel about this trend? Love it or leave it?

The Shift.


 | Dress | Sunglasses: Miu Miu | Hat: Target (old)
Shoes |
Necklace | 

A Shift Dress - Its one of those basic "staples" that belongs in every closet for every season.  Dress it up with some fancy shoes & jewels, or throw it on with a denim jacket, your favorite pair of tennis shoes and a baseball cap to take it down a notch.  If I were still in Corporate America this would have been my go-to paired with some pointy shoes and my favorite blazer.  The possibilities are absolutely ENDLESS and the price point is INSANE (hello, $20).  I can't wait to switch out my Summer accessories with a pair of boots, wool hat (my fav) and an oversized cardigan (have this one on my radar) next month! After finally having one in my possession, I finally understand where these dresses get their name!

All About That Wedge.

 

I've never shopped at Boohoo, but after my first haul of the above clothing, it may be my new favorite one-stop-shop for clothes.  It reminds me a lot of ASOS in the sense that you can find great basics, or super trendy pieces all for great prices without compromising quality.  I have been wanting to purchase a duster jacket for myself for a while and when I saw this one on the website for only $30 I knew I had to have it.  I love it SO much and will be picking it up in black in my next order.  And these shoes, tho!! Let it be known that these wedges give me life.  I have been wearing them with literally EVERY outfit I can think of.  Boyfriend Jeans, Maxi skirts and dresses, shorts, white skinny jeans - you get the point.  They are uber comfortable and SO DANG PRETTY on your feet!  I cannot recommend them enough!  I will end with a huge thank you to my little boy, Jake for accompanying me on our walk and this blog post ;)....isn't he just the most handsome little guy you've ever seen?!!

P.S. I filmed a video if you want to hear me rave about these shoes even more ;)
