the one with the sanderson sisters

My go to style so far this pregnancy has been leggings or jeans with a cute t-shirt. It’s cute and comfy and you can style it so many different ways. But the best part is of course how easy it is. With my first pregnancy I tried to be a little more fashionable on a daily basis, but now that I’ve got one out of the belly and one in the belly – I just don’t have the energy. Last time I also had a full capsule wardrobe that I found it hard to not buy anything else for. I wanted to be trendy and cute and on point. But this time around I’m finding that I’m buying more quality i.e. expensive pieces – just not as many. I have about half of a maternity capsule wardrobe and I rock it every day.

Hopefully that and my little built in heater will help in the coming winter months. But this shirt unfortunately won’t be worn after October 31st. I’ll probably be squeezing myself into it that day.

the one with off shoulder in fall

This black off shoulder top was one of my favorites all summer long while living in Florida. Now that we’re in ‘fall’ I’m going to transition it through and keep on wearing it. It’s so breezy and flowy that my little bump is comfortable. It’s one of the only non maternity shirts that fits me well still. Is it normal to show earlier with your second baby? I hear it’s muscle memory. My muscles memory is real good. I am glad to have enough energy back to look nice on a fairly regular basis.So I guess it’s time to get some fall and winter maternity clothes!

the one with glory

This Summer it’s all about the 5 pieces 1 outfit in real life. 5 pieces 1 outfit is the first series here on the blog every other Friday. It stemmed from my love of classic yet modern, easy to wear, chic and simple fashion. This Summer will be one of the busiest ever for me, and I live in Florida so it’s gonna be hot. I don’t want to have a lot on, and getting ready can’t take a lot of time. It’s the perfect time to do a ton of 5 pieces 1 outfit real life posts! I have a formula when I do these in real life – top, bottom, shoes, earrings, finisher. My finisher depends on what I’m doing and it also means I might actually photograph 6 or more pieces, but I’ll explain each outfit so you’ll understand why.

I wore this outfit way back on Easter because glory and Jesus. It was super comfortable tho, and seeing it again reminds me to wear it again! Do you ever have outfits like that?

5 pieces 1 outfit: wedding guest

Hey friends! 5 pieces 1 outfit is a twice monthly series where we feature 5 pieces that bring together 1 perfect outfit. It doesn’t take a lot of time, money, and or pieces to create a fashionable look that anyone can create. 5 pieces is all you need to make another outfit killer. First, I find it’s best to have a theme so you have a place to build from. That can be a color combo or maybe even an event. But most of all you just need a good base piece. This week’s theme is wedding guest attire!

the one with a casual black dress

This casual black dress is actually a maternity dress. I love it for pregnancy because it’s so stretchy. When I’m pregnant I feel so beautiful and honestly sexy. So a tight dress to show off my figure is right up my ally. Currently though, I’m 9 months postpartum. I’ve lost all the baby weight, but everything sits differently. I could do some exercises and tighten it up, lose the weight I needed to lose pre pregnancy. But it’s in our plan to have another baby. So for now I’m embracing it. That means I still look pregnant in this dress. But it’s fine because it’s comfortable and keeps me cool!

the one with Jack’s style

I was a little worried about dressing a little boy. He needs to be stylish ya know, and I have so much fun shopping! But all the men in my family and my husbands aren’t really into fashion so the chances are slim Jack will be. So his style needs to be stylish and easy. I also don’t want to spend a lot of money on his clothes since he grows out of them so quickly. There are 4 main places we buy his clothes; here’s the details and some pieces currently on his wish list (mama’s wish list).

striped shorts . hoodie . onesie set . shoes . shorts with suspenders . mickey hoodie . pants . chambray button up . tank . hat

  1. Target – Most days Jack is just in a onesie. I get most of them here. Their Cat and Jack line is awesome! I also get basic white onesies to put underneath button ups, shoes, socks, and fun holiday stuff. You know like a random tee to wear on easter and never again. So far he usually wears the size of the month he’s closest to.
  2. Carter’s – Carter’s has weird sizing. He always wears about 3 months bigger than he is. (they come in 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months). He’s almost 9 months and he has to wear 12 months. But they have really well made clothing. I especially love their shorts and pants. My favorite thing about Carter’s are their clearance racks. They are very cyclical with their clearance and keep everything organized and updated wonderfully!
  3. Old Navy – If you’ve ever visited the blog you know I love Old Navy for myself so it wasn’t a hard stretch to find Jack clothes here. I’ve bought him everything here, but I focus on dressier clothes. I love their dress pants and button ups. Their sizing is weird as well. Like his clothing is labeled 6-12 months right now.
  4. H & M – Here is where I get all of Jack’s trendier items. He doesn’t wear many trendy items mostly because there isn’t an H&M close. I love online shopping for myself, but not for Jack oddly.

I’m from Indiana, but we live in Florida. It truly feels like home so when I saw this shirt I had to snatch it up. That’s all because we have such wonderful friends. I knew we’d need to find a church to find friends down here so we jumped in as soon as we felt ready. Guys, they are my family now. I love this little church and this little beach town of mine more than I thought was possible 2.5 years ago. Indiana was my home for 29 years and my family is there. But now I have 2 homes.

This floral dress is 4 years old, but it’s still one of my favorites. I bought it for my bridal shower from old navy. Now I wear it to other showers and to church quite often. I’ve linked a couple very similar dresses. Old navy has the style still, but no florals this year!

the one with fall transition

The weather is pretty different here in Indiana than it was in Florida. It’s hot and wet in Florida but in Indiana right now it’s actually quite pleasant. That changes quite a few things when it comes to my wardrobe, especially when you add in that Fall is right around the corner. So today I want to share 5 outfits that are perfect for that transition to fall. And those cooler summer days. Since we’re in the summer of 5 pieces 1 outfit, all of them are 3 or 4 pieces. Lots of the pieces come from Tobi, which I’ve talked about my love for on the blog before! All you have to do is add a purse and some easy accessories to make it your own. I, of course, will tell you what I would add.

An easy maxi dress with a jean jacket and some sandals, how much better could it be!? I’d grab a crossbody purse and some fun earrings to make it perfect.  – Margot Contrast Maxi Dress . sandals old from old navy . jean jacket

This might be my favorite of them all. Take those off the shoulder tops to fall by covering your legs and your feet! I’d put my hair in a top knot, grab a clutch, some bright lipstick, and add some tassel earrings.  – jeans . top .   flats . 

This beautiful mni dress from Tobi can be worn in the fall by simply adding your favorite pair of leggings! Some booties, a crossobdy purse to match, and simple earrings finish this look off.- leggings . palm springs dress . booties

Plaid will always be fall to me so for the transition period some shorts leave with that summer feeling. A backpack and some gold studs will finish this look off perfectly. – booties . top old from target. shorts

This long cardigan from Tobi is seriously my favorite thing for this fall! Some shorts and simple flats make it perfect to wear now. – shorts . top old from shopbop . leopard flats . nikki cardigan
