I’ve been wearing it lots. Like an embarrassing amount maybs. The print is yummy but subtle enough to almost act as a neutral. I also love how long it is. Definitely a plus for us shorties who need all the help they can get in elongating any part of their body. Murrrrp.

Lots of cutie graphic blazers (long ones too) here right now. Happy hump day!

These Buttery Booties

Like butter, you guys. That’s seriously what these booties feel like. The softest, yummiest leather your heart can imagine. And for the quality, you’d barely believe they cost just over $100. Hashtag worthit. They’re surprisingly comfy too. You can get your hands on them here, herehere, or here. They come in black too. You’re welcome.

Remember how I’m re-working this kimono like it ain’t no thang? It was last seen here when I was like a gazillion months prego and ready to pop. I have to admit it’s a nicer experience wearing this thing when I’m not heavy with child. But hooray for re-working things already in our closets, right? Wooooooot.

Don’t worry though that I may or may not have also added these booties and this cardi (can we say elbow patches?) to my cart as well. Oops? Aaaaaaaand it may just take divine intervention to keep me from going back for these cutie shoes, this mustard polka-dot top, this jacket , these amazing heels, this chunky mustard cardi (picture that with a dress and some tights. Eeee!), and this skirt (SO many cute skirts right now. Ug.). And a million other things. Mmmyeah I need help.

Prepping for Fall

If Fall were a boy, his name would be Chase Willardson and I’d marry him. If Fall were a food, it would be the most delicious, oversized, hot out of the oven chocolate chip cookie this universe has ever known. If Fall were a salary, it would be seven figures. Make that eight figures. If Fall were a present, it would be a no-limits shopping spree to anywhere and everywhere I wanted. Are you catching my drift here you guys? Fall is my favorite. My absolute favorite! And I am SO ready to start dressing for it. Fall fashion makes my little heart go pitter-patter.

#BeTheGood

You guys – I wanna tell you about something super cool that I’ve had the chance to be a part of. Cents of Style and Jane.com recently challenged me to be a part of their #BeTheGood campaign. Secretly I was real excited to participate. Game on! Through this challenge, I chose to do a string of small acts of service. Here are my little stories!

Small act #1: My angel baby boy and I were out running errands over the weekend. We found ourselves at an outdoor mall with lots of metered parking, so for our first #BeTheGood act, we decided to add time to a handful of lucky meters whose time was running out. Pretty sure I could have used that favor like a gazillion different times in my life (I’m the queen of forgetting about my meter)! It felt good to help someone else avoid getting a nasty ticket.

Small act #2: One of our neighbors recently experienced a tragic loss in their family, so our second #BeTheGood act was to leave some flowers on their doorstep.

Small act #3: Baby boy and I were at it again (he’s the best (and cutest) little do-gooder I know). For our third #BeTheGood act, we cruised into a fast-food drive through and paid for the meal of the car behind us. You guys! I’ve never done that before! It was so fun! Loved it.

Small act #4: I take public transit to work twice a week. It’s always packed and seats on the train fill up quickly. For my fourth #BeTheGood act, I offered someone my seat. It’s something I’ve done lots and lots of times before in this commute, but somehow it felt a little more fun this time.

Small act #5: This one is tiny. It probably shouldn’t even be noted, but I’m gonna anyway. It happened on my commute on public transit again. There was a man standing nearby who, for several random reasons, reminded me of my dad. I instantly had the thought that I should text my daddy and let him know that I was thinking about him and that I loved the crap out of him. But you know how sometimes you have those thoughts but you don’t get to it right away, and then before you know it you’ve moved on to other things and forgotten all about it? Well, this time I just DID it. I texted my daddy right then and there, because so help me I wanted to make sure I followed the impulse! I’m counting that one as small act #5, because sometimes I think our families and those closest to us are the ones we need to be consciously trying to serve and uplift the most. Amiright?

One last thing: When I was in high school, I had a sunday school teacher who challenged us to #BeTheGood. She gave each member of the class a journal, and she told us that each day, she wanted us to write the following: one extraordinarily nice thing we did for someone, one nice thing someone did for us, and one way that we had seen God’s hand in our lives that day. I took on her challenge and began writing those three things, each and every day. I will never forget the result of that activity. I began it at the start of my senior year of high school – a time when, for whatever reason, I found myself feeling a bit lonely, a bit out of sorts, a bit down and out. I can attest to the fact that this exercise nearly single-handedly turned things around for me that year. It yanked me right out of that yucky, discouraging place and helped me get over the funk I was in. It also made me realize how much I truly had to be thankful for.

And ya know what? This activity had the same effect on me! My guess is that it would do the same for you! I challenge all of you to take a part in this movement and spread goodness throughout! Want to join in? Here are the deets:

1. Choose a good deed. It can be big or small!

2. Share your goods. Pick your favorite social channel (Facebook, Instagram, Vine, Twitter, etc.), but first, make sure to take a selfie (or something appropriate to your story), and share your story, big or small. Be sure to use these hashtags to help this campaign spread: #BeTheGood, #JaneCares and #CentsofStyle.

3. Tag 1-5 of your friends to do the same!

4. Look stylish while doing it! Jane.com and Cents of Style are selling these super cute #BeTheGood t-shirts on Jane.com. All profits made will be donated to Girls Inc., an organization that inspires girls to be strong, smart and bold.

Let’s do this thing guys! #BeTheGood!

Ya know that stupid thing us bloggers have been doing with our coats lately? That thing that makes no sense at all and actually isn’t super flattering where we just drape it over our shoulders instead of actually putting our arms through? That thing that kind of makes us all look like noobs? Yeah – I’m doing that thing. Try not to judge me.

I’m in love with them. End of story. You can get your hands on them here.

Also you guys, I’m exhausted. Sorry for being MIA lately. Navigating this new world of working mommy who is also trying to keep up with her blog and be a half-way decent wife is, well, exhausting so far. Wish me luck, and try not to give up on me. I’m still hurrrrrrrr! Hope you’re having a happy Tuesday!

Noodle-and-Boo-6Photos by KNW Photography

Today I’ve teamed up with Noodle & Boo for some do-goodin! No one hates doing good, amiright? Noodle and Boo has created the Circle of Love campaign to raise awareness and funds for the Prevention of Mother-to-child transmission of HIV/AIDS (PMTCT) programs in Africa. This means that babies born to HIV-positive moms will not contract the virus because moms will receive the necessary antiretroviral immunizations and care. Hooray!

This adorbs t-shirt I’m wearing is part of the campaign. 100% of the proceeds from the ‘Our World’ tee this will go directly to PMTCT programs in Africa, which help prevent the mother-to-child transmission of the HIV virus. This all about mamas (and future mamas) helping other mamas! Let’s do this! Get your ‘Our World’ shirt here and let’s help change our world!

You Asked…

I wore this outfit in an Instagram pic a couple months ago {you can follow me on Instagram here!} and was asked by several people afterward to blog the ensemb. So here it is! I gotta be honest guys – I wore this dress a lot this summer. Like, a lot. I bought it at H&M on a total whim. You know those times when you go shopping with someone, fully intending that you will not be buying anything for yourself (as if that ever actually happens). Yeah – that was the sitch with this dress. Didn’t even know if I was going to keep it for sure. And then it turned out to be one of my favorites. Love it when that happens, right?

Anywho, in honor of what at least feels like the last week of summer (last week in August), here be my fave summer ensemb, which also happens to be the one some of you were asking about. Woot! Bring on September!

Tees & Denim with Old Navy

August 26, 2014

RATE

Ok guys – let’s be serious: these days, with being a new momma, outfit selections more often than not are leaning toward the quick, easy, and comfy category. Bonus points if it can also look adorable. Well, nothing spells quick and comfy quite like jeans and a tee, amiright? That’s why I am loving me some Old Navy lately. First of all, they’ve remade and updated their denim in a major way so that it’s significantly more awesome than it used to be. These days their jeans are down right legit if you want my opinion. They have several different fits so no matter what size or shape you are, you’ll find something that feels and looks good (my personal favorite: the Rockstar. It’s got just the right amount of stretch.). And they recently added a bunch of killer tees to their lineup (all of which are ON SALE right now, btw). My favorite thing about those? They’re great for stuff like running errands or lounging around the house (or taking care of your wee little baby), but I can also throw a blazer over it, add some heels and a pair of those Rockstar jeans I was just talking about, and voila: I’ve got a chic, work-ready outfit on. You best believe I’ll be rocking that combo to work in the coming weeks (remember how today is my first day back? Yikes. More on that to come…)

Whatever you’re up to, a cutie tee and bangin’ denim always seem to get the job done. So what are YOU wearing your tees and denim for? Huh huh huh?
