You Asked…

August 28, 2014



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



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?

August 13, 2014



You guys – I’m just gonna say this right up front: this is one of those tops that you need. Like you need to buy it. Ya know the feeling when you find a clothing article that is like, perfect? You like the way it fits everywhere – around the tummy, on the arms, etc. – it’s super comfortable, it’s flattering, it’s versatile, it’s cute and interesting, and you can wear it on days when you feel bloated or have a food baby (or in my case, the aftermath of having a real baby). And ya know how it quickly becomes one of your go-to’s because you can always count on it to get the job done? Yeah – you know what I’m talkin’ about. Well, welcome to this top. It fits that description exactly. I put it on and instantly knew it was going to become one of my favorites. The best part – it’s only $21.99 at White Plum.

And, White Plum is offering all GBO readers 20% off anything in their shop. Just use code GBO20 at checkout. Which makes this top a whopping $17.60 ish before tax. Two words: Worth. It. Now head over to White Plum and get shoppin!

Summer Uniform

We took these pics while we were in Oregon at the coast. Admittedly you guys, I was nervous about the beach-wear situation. I knew I wouldn’t be strutting around in a swimsuit, what with the postpartum bod situation. But I also didn’t want the bod to deter me from wearing something cute and functional to the beach either, know what I mean? Continue Reading
