An Every Day Basic Outfit

Top: Cleo Madison | Leggings: Express, (similar here and here) | Booties: Lucky Brand, (similar here)

Is anyone else on the struggle bus after last nights Super Bowl game? I totally vote the day after the Super Bowl should be a holiday! Am I right?!

I had a total mom fail last night and didn’t put anything together, so this morning I was running around making lunch, getting Ava’s bottles ready, getting her diaper bag packed, so early on I determined I’m in need of ALL the coffee today. On days where I’m running late, I put on my favorite basics. The best part is, I look put together even though I literally got dressed in under 5 minutes. #winning

Anyway, I figured since I resort to this look so often, I’d write about it.

  1. Basic Layering Top: When wearing leggings, an important reminder is to always wear tunic length tops…for ya know. One of my favorites is from Cleo Madison. It’s the perfect length and comes in 4 different colors. I’m a sucker for finding a good top and getting it in all the colors. Anyone else do that?!
  2. Leather Leggings: I’ve got a SERIOUS thing for leather leggings outfits these days, if you can’t tell. If you follow me on Instagram & Instagram stories then you know that I sport my leather leggings ALL the time and basically create outfits around them! I find that leggings – and specifically faux leather leggings – are SO flattering, comfortable, and stylish.

  1. Booties: I LOVE wearing black booties with my leather leggings. I think they’re perfect and make my legs look so much longer than they are, because I’m on the shorter side. Another option could be either tan or you could add a pop of color.

Be sure to check out Cleo Madison for other cute basics! They have new arrivals all the time and their clothing is perfect is your’re looking for a little more coverage, especially if you’re running after little ones.

Swimwear Guide: Current Favorites

Click on any of the pictures to shop!

Okay, I know its still freezing outside, but I can’t help but shop for Spring, including new swimsuits. Last year was just an odd year for swimsuits. During the Spring, I was at the point where my belly could have easily been mistaken for eating too many chips and salsa [guilty of that anyway]. One day, I just popped [moms, you know what I mean] and then the belly was large and in charge. I didn’t want to spend a lot on swimwear knowing I wouldn’t be able to fit into this Summer, so I opted for Target. Nothing wrong with Target, but I feel anywhere you go, you at least run into another person in the same suit. Any who, all that to say, this year I am SO EXCITED to shop for new swimwear and take my little one to the pool and get her used to the water. Last night, we booked a quick trip to LA, so so I’m already thinking of things I want to bring. Everything [at least the cute items] always sells out by early April, so I’m actually excited to start buying items now.

I thought I’d round up all the pieces I’ve got my eye on along with my favorite cover-ups, and accessories. PLUS, ALL of these items are [I think] under $50! I hate seeing a swimsuit and then see a $200 price tag….aint no one [besides maybe Beyonce] has time for that.

I’d love to hear some of your fav places to shop for swimwear!

Valentine’s Day Gifts

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8

Valentines Day is around the corner and I can’t wait! This will be Ava’s first Valentine’s, so I’m looking forward to new traditions we will start together. I’ll do a whole separate post on gifts for the little one’s, don’t you worry. 🙂 With Christmas and then my birthday in January, we like to keep it simple for Valentine’s Day. We’ll honestly probably order a pizza, watch Shark Tank, and call it a night with Ava.

Even if you aren’t in a relationship, I think this holiday is fun to just celebrate love in life in general! Love yourself and splurge on this bag #girlboss. Love your best friends and have a Galentines dinner. Love your couch and treat it to that cute pillow or throw you’ve been eyeing. If you have someone special in your life, pass this along to them, and thank me later 🙂

What are some of your favorite traditions you did growing up or you do now? Would love to hear!

Turn Any Bag Into a Diaper Bag With ToteSavvy

Hi Friends, Happy Monday! I’m SO SO excited to share one of my new favorite products with y’all! I knew I would be going back to work at the beginning of the year, so on top of blogging, a starting daycare, and going back to work, 2018 would be the year of organization as a #momboss. Insert a lifesaver, ToteSavvy.

I know every parent has been in the situation where you have your baby on your hip and you’re trying to ruffle through your bag to find either the car keys, a toy or their pacifier, and of course, you can’t. [ugh!]

ToteSavvy  is so much more than an organizer. It comes in 2 different sizes, Original and Mini and comes with a full size changing mat, key holder, and multiple size pockets. They have so many cute colors [I definitely want to get the blush mini next, swoon!] I got the original in this color, which will fit perfectly in a large tote or Neverfull (shown below).

All the items I can fit are included below. Want to know something crazy?! There are still 4 different compartments on the other size I could show that fit:

  • MacBook Air;
  • Journal;

  • Extra spot for keys
