FALL FOR FLANNEL

Today is a great look for cool summer nights and for the upcoming fall, I love comfy flannel tops and this one has stretch in it too so I can move freely in it. I'm obsessed with these jeans they are seriously like pajamas they are pull on with an elastic waist and stretchy. What more could a girl want?! I hope you have a great weekend!

BLACK & WHITE

Although I'm excited to dress for fall with scarves, booties, and jackets. I'm really going to miss just throwing on a kimono, they have been my favorite thing to wear this summer. Not that I won't be able to wear them in the fall and winter, but definitely not by themselves once the cold weather kicks in. I just want to share my experience with the fit of kimonos for me, normally I wear a medium in shirts and every kimono I have is an x-small or a small. They definitely run big so if you are looking to purchase one I would for sure size down. This is totally off topic but my cute baby boy gets his helmet off in two days. I think I'm more excited than he is, it really doesn't seem to bother him. I can't wait to kiss his head and snuggle him without his helmet. Happy Wednesday, thanks for reading my blog.

RUNNING ERRANDS

I haven't been this excited for Friday, since last Friday! Seriously though I'm so excited its the weekend. Today's outfit is an everyday outfit I wear to run errands with the babies. Its definitely simple, just a pair of jeans and a tee. I always add something special to any outfit with my shoes. I like original and funky shoes, that add that extra something to a plain outfit. Since I have had my twins you will definitely see me without makeup more than with it, so in this post you will notice I'm not even wearing lip gloss, and I'm rocking my hair from yesterday. This is plain old me that didn't have time to get ready before we had to run errands. Plus if I'm not really going anywhere that special I hate to waste makeup, its too expensive.

I really want to start doing giveaways, what is everyone interested in winning. Hair product, accessories(scarves, jewelry), makeup? Comment below and let me know, have a great weekend.

SUMMER TO FALL TRANSITION

I can't believe I'm posting about transitioning to fall clothes. Where the heck did the summer go? I feel like it just started, and now its almost over. I'm so sad, summer is definitely my favorite time of year. I love the warm weather and how beautiful it is outside. For today's post I wanted to give you some ideas on how to take what your already wearing and make it work for fall weather.  In the first few photos I show how I have been styling one of my favorite dresses this summer. The second group of photos I wanted to show how you can wear the same dress for the upcoming fall weather.

I have a few styling tricks when it comes to transitioning into fall-
  • Add a scarf
  • Add a pair of tights under your dress/skirt/shorts
  • Add a jacket
  • Throw on a sweater
  • Wear boots or booties with a dress/skirt
  What's your favorite summer-to-fall transitional styling trick?

FAMILY PICTURE DAY

My brother and his family are in town, we usually only get to see them once a year, I hate not having my whole family close by. I really miss them. While they are here we decided we better get family pictures done. I know I'm not the only one that can never decide what to wear for family pictures. Its so hard to not be too matchy matchy with everyone else, but at the same time kind of match the rest of the family. I finally decided on this floral top because it has lots of different colors, so I figured it would easily go with the whatever the rest of my family showed up in. I kept it pretty casual by wearing some jeans and a simple sandal, with really simple jewelry. I hope you like it. Thanks for following, I really appreciate all the sweet comments!

ALL BLACK RUFFLE

I hope everyone had a great weekend. Things have been crazy here! We had a flash flood and our house got flooded, so I have been MIA in the online world. These pictures were from my vacation a couple weeks ago. This was really hard for me to take pictures in my swimming suit, but I'm sick of feeling self conscious and I'm trying to rock the body I have and be happy just the way I am. This is the first one piece I have ever owned, and I really love it. It was inexpensive and was the most flattering one that I could find. I hope one day I can get back into a two piece suit and feel confident. I'm really working hard to get back to my pre-baby body, its a lot harder than I thought it was going to be. I'm so jealous of those girls that have a baby and one week later they are back in their old jeans. Sorry for all the body talk but its been really hard for me to feel confident after being pregnant, I'm definitely trying to stay positive and love me for me. I have to remind myself that I created two perfect little babies at the same time, and my body is amazing for doing that. I wouldn't trade my twins for the world and I am so grateful for them, so even if I never get my pre-pregnancy body back they are so worth it. If you take one thing from this post, remember to love yourself just the way you are!

OH DAISY

This look is super comfy and great for the summer. It's lightweight and keeps me cool in this crazy heat. I love kimonos just as much as cardigans, they are so easy to throw over a tank and it dresses up your whole outfit.

TAKE ME TO THE BEACH

I had so much fun taking these pictures with my cousin. I absolutely loved spending time with my family this past week, I don't get to see my cousins enough. Not only did she take pictures for me, she also helped me out big time with my twins, thanks Laur. You will notice some big smiles in these pictures because she was cracking me up. I think she has found her future career.  She kept saying "Yeah baby, that's fierce" or "oh yeah give me a sexy face." This outfit is super comfy and easy to wear, and that's exactly what I love while on vacation. You need to be comfy because you are usually out exploring the new town, and you don't want to be worried about fussing with your clothes. I really wish I could live by the beach, its so beautiful and the sound of the water is so relaxing and almost cures any feelings of stress or worry for me. I hope everyone had a great weekend and was able to relax and let loose.
