Every once in a while, I come across a rare gem while shopping. One of those pieces that you want to call alllll your girlfriends and tell them they need it in their life! This tan coat is my latest amazing find and I cannot get enough!
First of all, it is so cozy. I’ve told you before, but I’ve literally never had to buy a big coat. With that being said, you can imagine I’m feeling a little nervous for a real Utah winter! I really don’t like the feel of big bulky coats. This coat is so warm and cozy. It feels like wearing a big comfy sweatshirt, but gives you a classy put together look on the outside.
As if the holiday’s weren’t special and exciting enough, this year is Harper’s First Christmas and it makes everything that much more magical! Having a baby during the holidays is always so special. I’ve never had a baby be this old on their first Christmas! I can already tell it is going to be so much fun! Her little personality is shining through so much these days, and the older kids love introducing her to new things! With it being Harper’s First Christmas, I thought it would be a great time to share some of my favorite traditions we do for each of the little people on their first Christmas, as well as some new ideas for the whole family!
It’s been another fun week of getting the house together. haha. Just trying to survive this last insane week of finishing up all the last minute things. So basically I’ve been living in my joggers everyday! Seriously I can’t remember the last time I wore jeans. Plus a little house update….right now we are planning on moving in next Saturday!! But things change daily so it could still change but we are all praying it doesn’t!
If you follow along on instagram you might have saw our super sad news about losing our puppy 2 days before Thanksgiving. It was such a sad thing and the little people are just starting to come out of it. We are still wanting to get another puppy but are going to wait till we are in the new house and hoping to find one right around Christmas. So we’ll keep you updated. I linked a bunch of our outfits from the past two weeks below and also included all the sales from this weekend!
Loungewear … a girls best friend! Ha! But really, it is definitely a go to around here. Now as much as I’d like it to be acceptable, when I say “loungewear” I don’t mean my robe! This is a clean, put together version of comfy that is much more acceptable to leave your house in!
When it comes to adding pieces to my closet, I always make sure that it checks one box first. Is it Timeless? I try to find things that I know can transition well through different seasons + styles, and can be mixed + matched with different looks. With that criteria in mind, I’ve narrowed down my three tips for creating a quick + easy timeless look…
Now that we are back in Utah, cold weather is just around the corner. I’m not sure this “California Girl” is ready!! I’ve been prepping by actually buying my first big winter coat, and searching for all the best beanies and scarves! Also I found so many cute ones, I had to share my favorites with you! If I’m missing out on some amazing winter item…please share with me in the comments!
Happy Black Friday friends!! So who’s ready for today?! Or have you already been shopping?! As usual I have rounded up THE BEST SALES + DEALS and shared some of my best shopping tips for Black Friday below. I’ve gone through ALLLLLL the sales and have only linked the best or my absolute favorite items to save you a lot of time!!
During cyber week items will sell out fast! So make sure you snag them (I’ve made this mistake before and waiting too long and then it’s gone) I figure you can always return if you change your mind or end up with too much!! Just sharing my mistakes in the past. haha.
. TIPS .
SAVE $ on FREE SHIPPING + RETURNS…we all want to save + who wants to pay shipping? (I seriously hate it. haha) These are some of my favorite stores that offer both free shipping + returns.
USE GIFT GUIDES to HELP you MAKE A LIST…this is always where I get the best ideas or can put together a quick gift for exactly what or who I’m shopping for!! Right below are some links of some of my gift guides I put together along with a few from my go to stores.
Today’s Gift Guide is all about the little people! Whether you have a toddler, a pre-teen, or somewhere in between, I’ve tried to include something for everyone! From practical gifts…to the off the wall (my people all want a hoverboard), to things I hate: like slime! I hope you’ll find something that works for your little people! And happy Thanksgiving Eve!! Also, I want to thank you all for your love and kind words about our sweet little harley pup. It truly means so much to have such loving support.
Christmas is just around the corner! That means it is time to start prepping your Christmas Cards to send to family + friends! Call me crazy, but this has always been one of my favorite holiday traditions. Something about stuffing those envelopes means the Christmas season is officially here and gets me all kinds of giddy inside! In my search for my favorite this year, I picked out my nine favorites to share with you guys today!! Now if I could just decide which one!!
I’m sure it comes as no surprise to any of you, but juggling the schedules of 5 little people + Joe and I is not always smooth sailing. With the holidays coming up + finalizing the new house, spare time isn’t something I have! As a result, clothes shopping for the kids gets put on the back burner. When Old Navy reached out to me about their new Kids Subscription box, the Old Navy Superbox, I was all about hearing more details + what kid does not love a surprise box in the mail?!
