Outfits That Didn't Make It

Here's how this conversation went:

Me: [to husband] Can you take my picture?
Him: You want it for your blog?
Me: Yes.  Why do I look like crap?  Because I'm real.  This is how I really dress. [clearly, I'm not dramatic.]
Him: I mean okay.

Since I assumed my photographer was not inspired, I took pics with my iphone instead.  Note to self, must get new mirror and keep little toddler boy hands off of it.  

The picture below shows one of my birthday gifts from my husband!  It's a Tory Burch bag that doubles as a diaper bag since it's nylon fabric.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!  Although I also love my Marc by Marc Jacobs diaper bag, since my baby boy is now a toddler, I don't have much of a need to always have all of the things.  However, I still carry with me diapers, wipes, snacks, drinks, and toys so I wanted something that was nice enough to wear on its own and also carry my toddler necessities.  Tis love!

His and Her Watches: Jord Wood Watches

Shirt: Lucky Brand  /  Jeans: American Eagle {Similar} /  Shoes: Tory Burch  /  Necklace: Kendra Scott              Bag: Old Navy  /  Bracelet: David Yurman  /  Sunnies: Polette c/o  /  Watch: Jord Wood Watches c/o

I have a fun post today to introduce (if you don't already own one) a fun and unique timepiece.  Jord Wood Watches are just that - watches made out of wood!  I cannot get over how cool these watches are.  I tried to think of a better word than cool but sometimes, things are just that cool.  But honestly, Jord Wood Watches are beautiful and something I don't see every day which makes them that unique to me.  Jord has a wide selection of different wood finishes and styles so it was hard to narrow my selection down to one.  I chose the Ely Series in the Cherry color and could not be more happy with my choice.

The website boasts that Jord Wood Watches are sustainable, efficient, and influenced by experiential living.  It is truly a beautiful watch!  Each watch is custom cut to fit your wrist and for the week of June 5- June 12, 2015, Jord is offering free sizing with code DANDD4119845.

My husband even got to partake in the fun!  You'll see in the pictures below a mens version of a Jord Wood Watch.  He's wearing the Sully Series in the Black and Maple color. My husband loves watches and he gave this one two thumbs up.  These would make great father's day gifts!  

My husband was so excited to see his watch!  He told that the he and his co-workers had a conversation during the holidays about how wood watches would make such a great and unique gift to give to someone.  True story!  He was very pleased with the fit and construction.  He also said that it has been a fun conversation piece.

Oktoberfest 2013

One of my favorite fall traditions is going to Oktoberfest and the fall festival.  We decided to skip the fall festival this year because it was during the day and too warm for Lucas to be outside for a long time but we did take him to Oktoberfest Friday evening.  I remember last year seeing all the little kids running around in costumes, getting their faces painted, or running towards the snow cones and thinking, one day, I'll be bringing my own little one to the festivities.  

My favorite part of Oktoberfest is the Halloween festivities that go on like the dancers performing "Thriller" in the street and the creepy decorations all around.  Lucas, however, was definitely not a fan of the loud music.  At one point he started to almost cry which breaks my heart every time when I see his bottom lip stick out.  Although he was too little to enjoy Oktoberfest, and even though his onesie says "Never Grow Up," I look forward to the coming years and letting him run loose, face paint, costume, and all!

Royal Thanks

These pictures are by no means blog-worthy but there's a reason I'm putting my messy hair, no makeup face, grainy photos on the internet land.  There's also a reason I'm thanking Kate Middleton for inspiring this mommy outfit and helping keep my sanity.  Humor me and allow me to have a little fan moment here.  Dutchess Catherine gave birth a couple days after me.  When she left the hospital with millions of cameras on her, I was sitting in my recliner watching in my pjs, messy hair, undereye circles, and holding a crying newborn.  She was the epitome of grace and just looked so beautiful and at peace.  For a moment, I thought there was something wrong with me.  Here she was hours from giving birth looking amazing and I had been a crying mess looking all kinds of cray cray.  Then I noticed her bump.  I so loved that she didn't wear something that covered her postpartum bump.  Seeing her sport her bump and look graceful gave me hope.  Call me crazy but at that moment, I needed a boost.

It's been weeks of firsts for me and as I mentally prepare myself to return to work next week, crying my eyes out of course, I can't believe how happy and rich my life feels.  Below is just a small fraction of my firsts with Lucas.  I'm looking forward to many more first moments with our new little family!

Practical Love

My husband and I have become quite the practical gift givers.  He gave me a Clarisonic Mia and he bought himself a vacuum.  I say he bought himself the vacuum because I could never bring myself to spend as much as he did for a flipping vacuum.  Since it is our finances, you could say my gift was that I would stop stopping him from buying the vacuum.  He had his mind set on a Dyson vacuum which of course we had to order because we couldn't find the one he wanted locally.  The man literally said to me, "I can't wait for the weekend to be over because I'm that much closer to getting my vacuum."  And that people is love.

Pattern Overload

Sweater: Ann Taylor  /  Shirt: J Crew  /  Jeans: AE  /  Shoes: Ann Taylor  /  Bag: Louis Vuitton 'Neverfull GM'

So I put myself on a shopping ban.  Yep.  That's right.  A Shopping BAN!  So far so good.

This year, we will be adding a new family member so I want to be smarter about my finances.  For as long as I can, I will only be buying essentials.  Now, do realize that my waist line is expanding so I did cheat a little by buying a maternity suit.  I consider buying the suit an essential because I have to wear it at least once or twice a week and none of my other suits fit.  For Christmas, my husband absolutely spoiled me so I consider that to be my last hooray.  As for maternity clothes, many family members bought me different items of clothes or gift certificates so I think I'm okay on the maternity clothes for a bit.  I'm interested to see how long I can last!

Has anyone else gone on a shopping ban and, if so, any tips?

Daze Off

My husband and I had the day off yesterday except we didn't know it and worked anyhow.  Clueless we are, I tell ya.  I never said I was perfect :-)

Goodbye October


Is it possibly the last week in October?  No.  Not possible.  Fall has finally just arrived in Florida. It was laundry day so baggy clothes it was to run errands.  I'm thinking of those of you up north, especially my little sister and family...please stay safe!

Southern Prep

I am such a stinkin' hypocrite in this outfit.  See, the top portion makes you think it's actually fall whereas the bottom portion is a reminder that I live in Florida.  I'm one of those people that is always cold.  Cardigans and sweaters are a must for me.  Here's to hoping for a great week :-)
