Oversized


Happy New Years Eve!  I have big plans of warming up my favorite pjs and watching Bravo shows all night long.  Seriously.  Okay, I cannot tell a lie but I may just throw away all of the shirts in my closet and replace them with oversized shirts.  For reals.  The way I see it, I can continue eating Nutella out of the jar since my oversized shirts will conceal my growing mid section!  In all honesty, I'm feeling this oversized top and plan on purchasing many more.

Hearts and Bows


Christmas has come and gone and it's now back to work.  It's so sad when Christmas is over since I get so excited about the house decorated and lighted, my sisters in town, and Christmas Eve and morning.  I'm in full denial that the year is near over so I'm already making plans for 2015 to get me motivated.  When I was pregnant, I pretty much stopped shopping for clothes (for me anyways).  Now that Lucas is a toddler, our house is nearly done decorating, and travel plans have been made, I'm finding myself getting that itch to update my closet.  Luckily, it came at a time where almost all of my favorite store were running major promos.  So between updating my wardrobe and obsessing over home decorating, the delivery man and I are going to be best buds!  Oh and that's another thing, I can't physically shop anymore, can't do it, won't do it.  Sooo ebates and I are becoming quite the BFFs!

Details


We just returned from a trip to Puerto Rico to visit family and attend my cousin's wedding and now I'm trying to get back into the work groove.  Not willing to accept that my vacation is over, this pretty little necklace arrived just in time!  I snagged this goody during the black Friday sales (online, of course) and it arrived when I got home a couple of days ago.  I am already obsessed with tassels but I loved that this necklace also had a monogram charm.  I'm thinking of purchasing separate tassels and switching them out according to the outfit.  But, for now, I love the cobalt blue,which is fitting for the end of a lovely and tropical vacation.

Plaids


I am absolutely smitten with this sweater from Target.  I've had it in my closet for awhile but only just now wore it because I was waiting for these Sole Society shoes to arrive.  I'm weird and "save" outfits even though I swore I would not save outfits anymore.  Does anyone else do that or is it just me?

Christmas Wish List for Momma and Son

 Makeup Bag  /  Earrings  /  Watch  /  Slippers  /  Sandals  /  Eyeshadow Palette

It's the holiday season and I am thrilled to decorate our new home and help Santa pick out some gifts for a sweet little boy that has only had a few naughty moments this year!  I already gave my husband a Macbook Pro for his birthday/early Christmas gift and plan on getting him a few little things on Christmas day.  Mr. Lucas, though, is on the move which is why most of the gifts I plan on getting him are activity type toys.  I can't wait to get to shopping for every one else in my life!

Shoe Lover

For the first time in a LOOONG time, I bought myself new shoes.  I couldn't resist the 30% and free shipping that Sole Society was offering last week and picked up two pairs.  I was on the fence with these flats but I'm glad I ended up purchasing them along with a pair of heels.  These are so comfy and I think the bow makes them cute.  I sized up half a size based on the reviews and they are perfect!  I've never been much of a shoe shopper but I think I've unleashed a monster and want to buy all of the shoes, all of the time...but what's new...

Fair Isle



It has been quite an eventful couple of weeks.  We are still settling into our new home but still feel like I have so much to do here.  On top of feeling the stress from the move, my entire family came down with a stomach virus.  Poor Lucas was the first to get sick and then the rest of my family soon followed.  I'll spare you the details but I don't ever remember being that ill.  Needless to say, I barely touched my mom's Thanksgiving dinner, sadly.  We finally have our appetites back and it's come just in time for the Christmas holiday season.  We didn't let a little stomach virus keep us from decorating our tree and, of course, holiday ONLINE shopping.  Oh yes, I stayed in the comfort of my own home and did not brave the crowds.  I'm not much of a physical shopper anymore and can't remember the last time I was inside of a mall.  I hope you all were able to score some amazing deals and had a lovely Thanksgiving!

Sunnies


Sunglasses are one of my favorite accessories.  I've had my eye on a certain style for awhile but with lots of moving, decorating, and home purchases expenses I've been having lately, pricey accessories just are not as important at the moment.  I was so happy that French brand, Polette, a leader on the online optical market, offered to send me one of their sunglasses.  I was even more ecstatic to see Polette carries sunglasses similar to the ones I have eyeing (pun intended) for awhile!  Okay, even MORE ecstatic to see that the price of lenses start from $6.99...seriously.  With highly competitive prices and even customization, it's no wonder that I absolutely love these frames!  I have been wearing these non-stop.  I chose the VIKKI sunglasses and I highly recommend them.  If you would like to check them out, their social media links are at the end of this post.

On the Go


Cardigans, pants, and hair up seems to be my jam lately.  I haven't figured out our new schedule yet and, clearly, steaming my clothes and drying my hair before work has not been put on the schedule.  Most mornings are pretty hectic and I very much look forward to getting into a schedule so I have more morning time with my little boy.  One day I say, one day!

It's been an absolutely crazy two weeks which is why I've been quiet on this blog.  The week before last, I was hit with a nasty virus that kept me home for almost a week.  I don't remember being that sick in a long time.  Then, last Friday, we closed on our first home!  So I finally have my closet back, yay!  AND it's all in boxes, NOT so yay!  We are slowly getting everything in order and, although, it's been chaotic, it's been amazing all at the same time.

Baggy


This is definitely one of those comfy office clothes days.  Those days that you want to feel completely comfortable done up yet undone kinda days, if that makes any sense.  Reading that sentence back, it doesn't make sense to me either but I've been having lots of busy days lately and needing to feel more relaxed.  I'm hoping for that when things settle down (work, moving, etc) I can get more into the blogging routine because I miss it so much!

Fall Festivities


I wanted to share some of our fall activities we did last weekend.  It's so great seeing Lucas so happy and active in these photos since he's been so sick since Sunday.  He's feeling much better now but that's after a trip to the ER and doctor's visit.  But he's getting back to his ole playful self much like these photos show.  Last year, he was so little and seeing him running around the pumpkin patch this year warmed my heart.  So this post is very picture heavy but, as always, I can't choose just one picture of my guy <3

Neutrals


I promise I wasn't angry while taking these pictures contrary to my sour face above.  It was the first cold morning we've had this season and I realized that when packing up for our move, I put in storage all my warm clothes.  Luckily, our new home is days away from completion and I am thrilled!  For now though, I'm still working with my limited closet until I can unpack the rest out of storage.  

I've been loving black and camel colors together (seen here) and loved this look on Franziska.  Black and white will always be favorite color combos and it occurred to me that I've used the combination in lots of important aspects in my life (wedding, house, decor...)  I'm getting deep here, people...it's only Wednesday...

Blues


I think I need more blue...if only my blue suede shoes weren't in storage...kidding, about adding more blue because I totally have blue suede shoes (exhibits A and B).  What kind of an Elvis fan would I be without blue suede shoes?  (FYI,  I am a HUGE Elvis fan and walked down the aisle to Fools Rush In).  Happy Monday!

Flowers in October


How is it already October?  No complaints because it's my favorite time of the year but mere shock that it's already late in the year.  It's still blazing hot and last week when temps dipped into the low 70s, I literally saw people wearing scarves around town...SCARVES! Nope.

Casual Friday


It's 2014 and I am still rockin' a waist tied sweater like nobody's business.  Okay, I ended up wearing the sweater in its ended purpose once I stepped foot in my Antarctica office but I judge no one who wants to tie their sweater around their waist.  I will judge if you wear socks with sandals...Have a great weekend!

Falling


It's finally fall which, of course, is my favorite time of the year.  However, it is still hotter than a chicken's coop in Florida but I'm not going to let a blazing hot sun take me down from my fall high.  I'm ready to embrace the changing leaves, football Saturdays, and pumpkin/apple EVERYTHING!  Woot woot!
