Fall Color Trends

Thursday, September 20, 2018

Not sure if it's the fact that I'm so excited about having a little girl or if it's just my favorite color for fall but I am obsessed with dusty rose and all things blush lately.  I just can't get enough of it.  Back when I was working in an office my entire wardrobe consisted of black and only black.  I made a conscious effort to incorporate more color and stop buying anything black.  Now, my closet is much more diversified but I may have to put a moratorium on anything rose colored soon! Or not, we'll see. 

Boys Day at The Great American Barbershop

Tuesday, September 18, 2018

We had the sweet opportunity a few months ago to do something really fun for Kevin and the boys.  A sort of bonding if you will.  For the first 10 years together I always cut Kevin’s hair. Not that I’m any kind of expert or even trained for that matter but, with an instruction one time and a little bit of grace I figured it out and it was always pretty good, if I do say so myself.  Plus, the price was right. But styles change and time is valuable so....

Fall Transitional Pieces

Friday, August 24, 2018

The end of August is quickly approaching and that means summer is coming to an end.  While it stays well into the 90's here in Fresno I definitely start to feel the need to transition into warmer tones come September.  Those warmer tones still have to be functional though! No sweaters or even light jackets yet for me.  I just ordered two pieces that work great for giving me that fall look without dying of heat exhaustion.  Both are light weight, can be worn now and when it finally does cool down, and both won't break the bank.  

Bump Date {The First 20 weeks}

Sunday, July 15, 2018

I can't believe the halfway mark has come and gone already.  I feel like I've know I've been pregnant since forever but at the same time it's gone really fast. The belly is definitely popping.  More so at night than first thing in the morning.  It's amazing how fast our bodies change and the miracle that God creates for us to bare. It has been a bit of an adventure to get here and I'm diving into to it below.

Casual or Dressy; A Dress for Either Occasion

Wednesday, June 27, 2018

It's summer and around here that means HOT.  Pregnant and hot temps mean one of two things; feed me all the popsicles and let me buy all the dresses.  Throwing on a good dress whether it's for everyday things or a special event is my current go-to.  I just grabbed two good ones and wanted to share.

THIS first one is soft, comfortable and so effortless to wear.  The fabric has a lot of stretch and flow to it.  I've been loving and living in sneakers and dresses lately.  I think it's a fun way to add a sporty look to an otherwises thought dressier piece of clothing.  The black and white stripes add interest but keep the look flattering and the ruffle sleeves are my favorite detail. I did size up but not because it was tight around the middle, rather I did it to add length as it falls over my ever growing belly this summer.


THIS off the shoulder number has pretty laser cut out details along the top and bottom that definitely catches the eye. You can wear it up on your shoulders but the cut is perfectly suited for the off the shoulder style. It has a great length even after going over the bump. Not maternity but it has stretch to accommodate. Fits true to size and the color is a pretty merlot.

Whether you're looking for a run errands in kind of dress or a guest of a wedding type, both of these options are great and definitely won't break the bank.
