Plaid – ly in Love.

plaid top ruffle

I’ve always had a bit of an obsession with plaid. Call me Scottish- which I am- but there’s just something about the different criss-crossed patterns of fun and different colors together that just really speaks to me. However, I’ve never really cared too much for how a basic plaid button down looks on my body without jazzing it up a bit. When I found this adorable plaid top at Target It had to be mine. The sleeves fit so much […]

OTS + Cotton + Stripes.

OTS (off the shoulder) tops are SO my absolute favorite trend right now. I love that I can show off a little collar bone, and still keep my chubby little arms hidden under some sleeves. I also love that all OTS tops regardless of material, print, or color look so chic and fashion forward.   When you mix the trendiness of an OTS top, with classic black and white stripes AND comfortable stretchy cotton, it creates a year round staple […]

Off-the-Shoulder

  One of this Summer’s hottest trends has got to be wearing everything off-the-shoulder. You can find rompers, tops, dresses and even swimsuits sporting this fabulous trend. While I have never been much for “trends” I can not help but love this seasons style and have definitely picked up a few pieces that fall off-the-shoulder. One of my favorite new pieces is this top from Target. It looks great with shorts or jeans and is perfectly loose enough to easily […]

All opinions are my own. #SummerOfFloats My mother worked at the same middle school I went to when I was in 6-8th grade. My mom is the coolest and I loved getting to hang out with her at school. Sometimes she would substitute for a class when a teacher called out last-minute, and I would get surprised with my mom as a teacher in […]

#NOCHELLA

nochella outfit

Since learning of the yearly music festival in California’s desert I have dreamed of attending Coachella and listening to all the best music and wearing all the funnest boho clothing. Being pregnant meant this would most definitely NOT be the year I would attend the glorious festival, but it doesn’t mean I can’t dress like it! I love the simplicity and comfort of the Bohemian style. Flower crowns, fringe, and dresses with ample room to dance in are some of […]

Bump Love. 

So I’m 24 weeks pregnant now. Wow. This one is flying by (thankfully!) and I have now started to show a ton. It was just like overnight, woke up and I was huge! During my first pregnancy I made it very clear that I don’t do maternity labeled clothing. I understand some people have a need to spend an extra $30 for something they can only wear for 4 months, but that’s not me. I bought a BeBand at Target […]

#WHATIBOUGHTATTARGET

I’m new to this, so don’t be too harsh on me. I attended a blogging conference back in February that instructed all bloggers to get on Youtube and start making videos. Being the procrastinator I am at times, I’m just now starting a weekly video series entitled: “What I bought at Target.”  Come along for a joyous sarcastic ride filled with wonders of the one spot and more… #whatiboughtattarget Video I’ll be posting these confessionals every week, so hopefully my […]

Egg Hunt Cupcakes

This is literally the FIRST time I’m using box cake mix in a recipe on my blog! While I love making things from scratch and putting the extra love and effort into things, sometimes I just want to make something because it’s fun, and not worry about the nutritional aspect of it! I mean, from scratch or not, this IS a cupcake full of sugar, it’s 100% okay to skip a step here and there sometimes for the sake of […]

Rockin’ the Romper.

I’ve only ever owned ONE other romper prior to this one, and I didn’t even purchase it. I wasn’t fond of what I was wearing and a friend let me borrow-and-never-return one from her closet that by the grace of God Almighty somehow fit. I’ve always had an issue with the way they fit my body because I have the hips of a tall person and the stature of Nicole Ritchie. For me rompers either are entirely inappropriately too tight […]

Dressing for Surprises! Birthday Weekend Wear Day 3

So, yesterday my mother-in-law took me shopping for a special outfit for my birthday! I love shopping with anyone, but especially people who can be HONEST about what does/doesn’t look good on a persons body! While I’m always honest with everyone because I feel like it’s better for someone to hate me for 5 minutes than to hate themselves for wearing something awful and seeing a picture of it later, some people just aren’t able to exert that kind of […]
