5 Valentine's Day Outfits

For the first few years of marriage I always felt disappointed on Valentine's Day because I had these grand expectations of what the day would look like and what Alex would do. Thankfully I decided to just tell Alex what I wanted which is buy me chocolate, a card, and flowers. I may not be surprised by it but it beats being upset! 

If you are planning to go out for Valentine's Day or you simply want to dress up for the holiday here are some fun simple looks I put together. I enjoy wearing red and pink to work to celebrate this month of LOVE and American Hearth Month.



Family Road Trip Tips

Last month Turner, Alex and I went on a 12 hour road trip to Angel Fire, New Mexico! We loaded our Mazda CX-9 rental with our bags and road trip goodies and set off at 8am. I've partnered with Roger Beasley Mazda to share my tips on how to have a fun family road trip!

February Small Goals

January was a fun and hard month! I started off the month with a relaxing vacation to Angel Fire, but came back to a mountain of work. I'm seeing the light at the end of my email now, and I'm excited for the things to come..aka warmer temperatures.

3 Ways To Style A Tie-Front Top

I don't know why it's taken me so long to jump on the henley tie-front top band wagon but I'm finally here for it and I'm in LOVE! I recently was sent this top from Jane.com and I've found it's extremely versatile (unfortunately this exact one is sold out but I'm linking a ton of others). 

I love the v-neck and tie-front which makes it feminine but the loose sleeves and mid-section make it super comfy and hides a food baby really well ; ). Here are three fun ways I styled this top! 

This look is a bit dressier as I pair the top with fitted jeans and over-the-knee boots. Would be fun to wear on a date night or to dinner with your girlfriends. 




Kid's soccer game? Weekend errands? This comfy and casual look is perfect for moms on the go! I paired my top with my FAVORITE high waisted leggings and my Kenneth Cole leather sneakers. I think a baseball cap and a utility jacket would pair perfectly with this look as well.




Last but not least, add some pattern to the mix by pairing this top with a pair of leopard boots. In the summer swap out the black jeans for black shorts and add some leopard sandals or wedges!





Do you enjoy these style posts? I cringe a bit because the quality of my photos aren't great, but I do love sharing ways to style certain pieces. Most of us are on a budget and aren't fashion bloggers constantly shopping so we need to make our closet work for us! We never really know the full potential of our closet until we mix and match, play dress up and find new and fun ways to wear each item. Let me know if there are any specific pieces of clothing you would like me to style?

January Budget Recap

I don't know about you but January felt like the LONGEST month! I have a feeling it had to do with budgeting and trying so hard to not eat out. At the beginning of the month I talked about cutting my family's eating out budget in half and bringing my clothing budget down to $200 for the month. Let's see how my family and I did!
