School started up this week for the two older kids but me and the three youngest are still trying to hang on to every last bit of summer!! (even though having a little more of a schedule will be nice too, haha!).
It’s no surprise I love a good ‘day to night’ outfit, so when Amazon reached out to me about the Ella Moon Collection, I was instantly drawn to the items that I knew could easily be dressed up or down — my favorite being this darling striped dress that is perfect for fall! Styling a Day to Night look is really so simple, with just a few accessory changes you can create a whole new look!
The weekend is finally here and we survived the first week of school! The kids are loving their new school + are adjusting well. They get to ride the bus which seems to be the most exciting thing in the world and they look forward to it every morning!
Our house is finally coming along buuuut our date got pushed back to the end of October. (or at least we are hoping) I am loving this weather up here and I’ve been sticking to the basics when it comes to outfits lately. My usual basic t-shirt and jeans have been my go to this week! I’ve also been trying to squeeze in as many dresses before the cold weather hits.
If you’ve been around here for awhile you know my love for good basics!! I love this outfit so much + it’s no secret as to why this is always my go to outfit. It’s easy to take this outfit from a day to night with just a few easy switches. Just change out your sneakers for heels and add a leather jacket! It’s my all time favorite momiform cause we are always on the go + plans change quite often with our family, so…
How is summer almost over? My little people start school next week and part of me does not want them to go back, but we are all also craving a schedule and some order in our lives, haha! As you can tell we have had a busy summer and my Instagram round ups have been put on the back burner… life happens. Here are a few of my Instagram pics from through out the summer and this past week.
Plus, I rounded up all the best sales that are going on this weekend!I hope you all have a great weekend with your people!! I’m going to try and soak up these last few days with all my people at home.
So I’m finally getting around to sharing our family pics we took before we left Cali . I’ve wanted to take family pictures at the beach for years and we could never make it work. We had a date planned and one of the kids got super sick. So we drove all the way back home. We finally got them done just a week before we officially moved out of the state. My dear friend Corissa took these amazing photos and I will forever be grateful to have these amazing keepsakes!
Today is my birthday and I’m turning 34!! It feels really weird to say I’m this old, but then again I still feel super young!! haha. Anyone else feel like this?! I don’t stress about getting older, but I totally remember being 18 and all my co-workers turning 34 – so it’s just crazy to me.
I thought it would be fun to answer 34 of your most asked questions about myself + our family. Some are pretty personal — so I’m hoping by the end you’ll feel like you know me and my family a little bit better!!
How is it that summer is almost over?! It always seems to fly by, but with our move and allll our craziness we have going on, I feel like this year flew by even faster! As much as I hate to see it end, I am a lover of structure and routine, and I’m ready to get us back on somewhat of a schedule again! But I will miss the little people being around all day!!
When it comes to back to school shopping, the kids all time favorite thing to pick out is by far their backpacks + shoes! Our one stop shop for shoes for the whole fam is always Rack Room Shoes! We worked with them last year and their stuff is amazing, so we were thrilled to see they carry backpacks now too!
I’m so excited for the fall season to come since we haven’t lived where there’s a real “fall” for over 5 years!! Seriously – California fall/winters do not exist. Back in Kentucky fall was my favorite season of the year + I can’t wait to finally experience it up here in northern Utah!
On that note, I love how just one piece (a coat or jacket for this instant) can completely change your entire look and take your daily uniform and make it not seem so plain.
I don’t know about you guys, but for us ever since we hit the last day of school things have been non-stop!! Whether it’s family vacations, kids sports games + practices, or play dates with friends, summer is BUSY with five little people!
I’ve been getting asked a lot lately how we fit in all of the fun (and sometimes not so fun) things in our schedule with 5 little people, without losing our minds or patience. So today I’m sharing my Top 3 On the Go Summer Survival Tips that will help you get through the craziness and still keep a smile on everyone’s face!
If I could wear a white top or tee + jeans everyday I’d seriously do it!! Well I know I can, but lets be real, people would think it was a little odd, haha! We all know a good white tee and those great jeans that fit you so well are a must in everyone’s closet. I’ve never had a hard time finding a basic white tee, but when it comes to a button up – that’s another story. I either feel like they are too dressy to pull off for every day with my people, or they are too restrictive and form fitting that I can’t move. I saw this top on a girl at the store and knew immediately that this was the top I had been looking for for the past few years!!
