Happy Memorial day weekend, y'all!

    I wore this outfit last night before we waded through the mud at the Strawberry Festival so P could win about 20 stuffed animals before we were allowed to leave😂 I had to break out my Hunters because it was a total mud-pit but if it was nice, I seriously could have worn them because they are SO comfortable and easy to walk in. I ordered these platform slides in yellow too (they come in taupe, black, white + yellow) but I've heard that those are a little harder to stretch, so we'll see. So far, these black ones seem to break in quickly, although they were a little tight at first. They do run true-to-size and are the perfect slides for the beach or pool🙌🏼

Secondly, I swear I had at LEAST 12 people ask me where I got my moto-jeggings from the last time I posted a picture with them so I listed that too. I feel that they run a little small, which works out because if you normally wear a small, like me, then you should definitely be able to wear a medium and good news, that's what's in stock! But if they sell out, which is possible because they're sold by a boutique, be sure to sign up for the email alert so you'll know when your size is back in stock!

Have a good and SAFE weekend, guys!!

FLORAL MAXI | fashion

So naturally, I have one sister by blood but in 40 days, I'll have another sister through marriage💛 My brother-in-law is marrying his high school sweetheart and we couldn't be happier for them - it's about damn time! Mary is the most amazing aunt to our two kids and definitely one f the sweetest people I've ever met - her love for her family (and ours) is beyond measure and I think I'm counting down the days to their wedding just as frantically as they are HA. 
I love wedding season and seeing two people who fell in love join together and make that lifelong commitment towards each other... it's magical and definitely an event I'm sure to cry at without fail every. single. time.

But before the wedding, I've been getting outfits together for the bachelorette party in Charleston! My brother and his family live down in SC so I've been to the area a few times and have seriously fallen in love with the place! Mary's bridesmaids have taken the reigns and definitely made sure it'll be a weekend to remember but it wouldn't hurt to know the MUST-DO things if you live down there or have been there and done something unforgettable! We're open to hearing it allllll.

So about the clothes...!!
It's definitely going to be warm and (hopefully!) full of sun so I've planned on wearing nothing but dresses and rompers because of course, comfy is top priority while lounging in the sun etc. I'll do a separate post on all of the other pieces but I really wanted to focus on this amazing Floral maxi number from Shop Pink Blush! Unfortunately, this exact one is currently sold out BUT I'm going to link similar ones - they're the same dresses but just solid colors:
and make sure you use the code: SHOPNSAVE for 20% off!!

I was immediately drawn to the OFTS flutter-top of this dress and the light blue detail among the flowers. Now, when I actually got the piece in my hand, that was an entirely different story because I couldn't believe how amazing the quality was! This is not an ill-feeling dress by any means.. it's heavy and the quality is definitely there. I also loved the fact that the length was actually LONG. I'm not a tall person (only roughly 5'6) and it always seems like maxi dresses want to come off the ground about an inch and it drives me insane. If I'm shopping for a MAXI DRESS, it better sweep the floor.... and that might be just me, but that's why I think I love this dress even more because it actually touched the ground! I also think that this particular dress is maternity haha but also has a wide-range of non-maternity clothes and they're known for their versatility among their maternity transforming to post-pregnancy outfits, so although I'm not exactly pre-pregnancy size yet, this dress is still so flattering!

RAINY DAY LOUNGIN' | fashion + mom life

     Although it's 55 degrees here and I'm missing the sunshine, I also love a good rain day because I use these days to lounge and recharge my mom-batteries. Although mix in too many rainy days and we all get cabin-fever and,well, you know the rest. But I'm currently loving the inside time we're getting since we always seem to be on the go! Anyway...  I did have a doctors appointment early this morning that involved botox soooo I guess I'll have to update you guys on that experience soon! Right now, I can only say that it was totally painless and I can't wait to see my forehead lines disappear; hallelujah. I only had 8 units (hardly any at all) and I looooove who I had do it - she's experienced and totally knows wth she's doing.  PLUS it was super inexpensive. So if you guys want more info on all that, lemme know because I'd love to share everything with you guys! It takes about 2-3 days for the botox to take full-effect so next week I'll have a full update on the results! In the meantime, if you're looking for someone that can do filler/botox, call and set up your appointment with Leila at Pariser Dermatology - mention my name and you can get 10% off of your services! Just be aware that if you're going in for Juvederm (filler), they'll have to set up a different appointment after your initial consultation because they have to specially order your syringe and the amount you'll need -
but as far as botox goes, you can get that on the spot!
Pariser Dermatology located in Newport News (757) 622-6315

So, it turns out, that when the only thing you currently do is feed your newborn and change their diaper - online shopping becomes liiiife. Not that it wasn't but between Amazon and other sites, packages are hitting our doorstep DAILY. 

So after having a fussy little dude all morning (cue the first developmental leap), online shopping it was AND I stumbled upon THIS amazing sale featuring a TON of my favorite things - just in time for summer! 
I've separated each by category, so scroll down and use the arrows to browse some of the best items - and hopefully they become your favorites, too!

Okay, so my two favorite shirts are on mega sale right now! Both are 40% off and they're stocked up on the sizes! Everything is pretty much there, besides the blue sweatshirt - last time I checked, only the XX-L was available.. they may restock though! Anyway, I have all of the colors in each of these tops and as you can see, I totally squished my pregnant belly into each! I had to get a medium in this long sleeved shirt (now just $29) and I was able to wear it all the way to the day I delivered! It doesn't shrink and the fit stays true, no matter how many times I've washed AND dried it. 

Same goes with this sweatshirt. Right now, it's only $35 - originally almost $60!
 The colors DO fade a bit after washing, but I actually love that because I think it gives it more of a "worn and washed" look anyway. I've also washed and dried these and the fit stays true. It runs as more of a loose-fit so I was able to buy them in a small and they fit great during pregnancy and afterwards!

Tan Cork definitely looks more like a light coral color
but still so pretty!

Love the side-slit on this top

This is one of the best fitting long-sleeved tees I have!
