Happy Wednesday! I recently purchased these sweaters and can’t wait to wear them for fall! I don’t have a lot of pieces in camel, but after buying this cardigan, I’m in love and will definitely be making more of this color purchase! Happy Shopping!

Comfy Casual…

Happy Tuesday! How was everyone’s weekend? I am so happy to have the last few weeks behind us. Not that they were bad- they were just so incredibly busy. You know- the kind of busy where you literally feel like you’ve run a marathon after the day finally ends? Lately I find myself running out the door to work in the morning, running out the door at work in the afternoon and just filling every minute in between. Harrison came down with strep throat last week, so that actually forced me to slow down a bit. Thankfully, my sweet mother-in-law was here with us for the week and was able to keep him home from school and give him extra snuggles.

I posted these sneakers to my instagram last week and got a ton of questions on them. I don’t wear sneakers very often, but I found these a few weeks back and thought they were super cute and different, and not to mention- blush pink which is my fave! If pink isn’t your thing, they come in several different colors as well. I’m wearing my usual size- 8- so if you’re ordering online, know that they run true to size. I’m excited to wear them with shorts and dresses to finish out the summer and then with my jeans and cardigans this fall. My top is also new and is so comfy! I would say size up in this if you decide to purchase it. The material is super soft, but it runs a little small. I’m wearing a medium for reference.

Hope you are all having a great week so far!!

Relaxed & Transitioning to Fall…

Happy Thursday! I shared this casual look with you all over the weekend when we were shooting because my top is on super sale! I didn’t want you to miss out. Turns out- it’s still marked down! I love this top because it’s really cozy and goes with everything. You can dress it up or down with heels, flats and even tennis shoes. I actually just bought the black one as well. My booties are Jeffrey Campbell and I purchased these for spring 2016. I have worn them several times and in several seasons since I purchased them. I bought mine on Amazon, because at the time of purchase, they were super popular and sold out at my usual go to’s- like Nordstrom. Fun note on our shooting location- Another Richmond Blogger- Stephanie from Shesawstyle.com had mentioned the location of this little Tuscan home that we shot this look at. It was such a charming little spot. Aside from feeling a little funny shooting outside of someone’s home- it worked out perfectly!

Favorite Fall Accessories…

Happy Wednesday! Today I’m sharing some of my favorite accessories for fall. I just ordered this leopard scarf and I’m in love (it’s under $20!). Another item that has been a big hit with you all has been the backpack! The sole society version that I have sold out in black, but it is available still in the natural color. I linked a similar black option below.

Happy shopping!

Moto…

Happy Tuesday! Phew!! It’s been a whirlwind of a few days… well really a whirlwind of a month so far! We had a really calm July, but August is shaping up to be a busy one. We had such a great weekend catching up with old friends. Our friends that had moved to Missouri 4 years ago just moved back to Richmond and they came over for dinner Saturday night. Harrison had such a blast playing with their older daughter, who is 4. On the flip side, he lost his mind every time Dave or I held their one year old daughter. Here come the terrible two’s… so they say! My high school bestie was also passing through town with her family on Sunday on their way to OBX, so we got to spend some time with them, too. This particular friend is one that no matter how little we see each other, our friendship doesn’t change and we always pick back up right where we left off.  In life, there are just some people that even though you might only see them every year or two, everything is just as it was the last time you saw them. Those are the best kind of friends- and we are so lucky to have them in our lives! We have been fortunate enough to meet such great people who have turned into such great friends all along the way, both before and after we got married and in every place we have lived. It really made me think about how important it is to teach Harrison the value of good friendships. They don’t come along every day!! What’s that girl scout song- “make new friends, but keep the old- one is silver and the other is gold” 🙂

Anyways- enough of the sappy stuff! On to the outfit. I picked up this moto jacket during the Nordstrom anniversary sale. I actually had purchased this same jacket last winter when it went on sale, but it had silver hardware. Ultimately I returned it because the silver hardware was just too much and I felt like it wasn’t me. I actually LOVE the gold detail on this version. It’s so much softer than the silver. I don’t usually wear edgy stuff like this, but I’m so excited to pair this with so many different looks for the fall. It will be great over dresses, with jeans and even with leggings! It will quickly replace my go-to jean jacket for Summer!

I have received a lot of feedback that my jeans that I post are all really pricey, so I’m going to start linking more affordable options for you all as I did in this post. Jeans have always been an investment piece for me because although I spend a lot on them- I keep them forever! From now on, I’ll give you the option that I’m wearing and also an option with a little friendlier price point 🙂

Thanks again for stopping by!

Pink Ruffle Top…

I’ve been searching for trendy tops as of late and have been loving the longer, un-tucked look with a little bit of flare. This top checked all the boxes for me- I love the light pink color, the length and the tulle ruffle detail (of course!). It also comes in a gray color with black tulle, so be sure to check it out! My jeans are AG and I have had them for at least 2 years. I love them so much. When it comes to jeans, AG definitely fits my body type the best- especially for ankle length. With being 5’3, these hit me just at the right spot on the leg without needed to be altered (which can get really expensive). I will say that they are an investment at their $150+ price point, but they last forever. Most of my AG jeans are on 3 years and going strong!

David and I actually took these pictures at home late in the 6am hour before Harrison woke up for the day. With working full time and having plans on the weekend, it’s been SO hard fitting photo shoots in! I’m literally looking for any time of day that I can squeeze them into our calendar. Of course the one day that we want to shoot in the morning, it had been pouring the night before! It turned out to be totally fine though, with the exception of the humidity. I’m always completely jealous when I see other bloggers having full shoot days- where they are out and about doing several outfits in a row. I wish we had the time to do that, but with our regular 9-5 schedules, it makes it difficult. Sometimes I feel like the time crunch actually works to our advantage though, because we seem to do our best work when we are pressed for time. For all the other bloggers out there that are working full time- when is your best time to shoot? I’m looking for some advice to make this a little easier. When I was at Create Cultivate back in May, I actually asked Helena from The Brooklyn Blonde Blog (She’s amazing and you should follow her if you don’t already!) for some tips on making photo shoots a little more seamless. She said when you do multiple outfits in a row, you should pick an interchangeable piece (like a white t-shirt that goes under a cardi or a blazer that you’re shooting) so that each time you change, you’re not literally changing out every piece. I have been doing that when we’ve been doing multiple outfits in a row and it’s helped SO much! So for any new blogger out there- take that and run with it 🙂

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! I’ll be back on Tuesday with some fun new looks that we are shooting over the weekend.
