Jacket: BCBG, similar here found on Shopbop by Blank on sale for about $60! | Sweater: similar from Amped Up @ TjMaxx | jeans: American Eagle Outfitters |boots: Charles by Charles David (Walmart has them at the best price!!!—-$33) but you can also get them from Amazon, Macy’s, or 6pm.

Hello lovely readers! Welcome to all of you, near and far! I love seeing you read from over in Japan, Sweden, Germany, South America + more! Maybe some day we’ll meet if we aren’t already acquainted! Lately I’ve been yearning to travel again… to go on an adventure, but we need to prioritize and save up first.

Speaking of saving up! You won’t have to save up long if you use my latest shopping discovery:! πŸ™‚ Seriously. This isn’t an ad. I just found out that Walmart’s website sells tons of cool designs and brands that they don’t carry in stores! Isn’t that crazy?!

What I love about my new boots:

  1. The color is gorgeous for fall.
  2. The cut is very flattering.
  3. The price is REALLY good. They look as fresh and fall-ish as Stuart Weitzman boots, but are affordable for us normal folk.

Pretty sure Walmart owes me for telling y’all about this one.

You’re welcome.

Oh, one last thing! I have worn my pink moto jacket for over three years now and it’s by far one of the most versatile things in my closet– besides my AEO jeans. I wear it in the fall, warmer winter days, and all spring long. You won’t regret owning one of these babies!

Just some shopping tips if you’re updating your wardrobe for fall 2017!




velvet, embroidery, and tassels, oh my!

warning: this sweater may induce cozy autumn feelings

Romwe sent me this sweater for our Door County trip so I wore it all week and have no regrets about it. πŸ™‚ It’s only $21, but you can get it for less if you use one of their promos.

Scroll down to see *most* of the ways I wore the sweater this past week! At the beach with the family…

…and auntie WeeWee, AKA Peyton! This night was when we went out to a Swedish bar and restaurant! I wore it out for a day of art gallery hopping and ended up tiring it around my waist all afternoon because it was hot, hot, hot! Dinna with the whole crew! I wore it on our anniversary date! This outfit is subtly different than the others, promise! HahaI wore it with my athletic wear to a yoga class and then later during bath time for Wolfie!I’m obsessed with how cozy this sweater is and I adore the color. It’s crazy to me how this one wardrobe staple, a few dresses, a t-shirt, a pair of pants, and a pair of shorts got me through a whole week of vacation!

What color schemes are you enamored by lately? For me it’s brown, gold, and white (with pops of pink, green, or blue)! Can you tell by my outfits?



nighttime number

dress: Shein (worn as shirt) | shoes: coach or similar with flowers | pants: shopo, similar Levi’s here |earrings: sugarfix from baublebar (as seen below– got a few DMs about them on Instagram so I thought I’d link them now). This outfit is what I brought on our Door County family trip to wear on Beckett’s and my 3 year wedding anniversary date. I actually repeated this outfit a few times over the course of the week because it’s so comfy and easy to wear. The top is great as a shirt or a dress for most people, but because of my height it looked a little risquΓ© without pants. I’m wearing a size medium and it’s baggy (how I wanted it) so it fits pretty true to size.Beckett and I kept trying to take pictures of this outfit at dusk and they didn’t turn out so finally we took them outside the house under a light and they turned out kinda interestingly. Then Beckett started getting a little creative with the poses he was telling me to do and we ended up with this! Let me know what you think of it in the comments below:)

This shirt/dress is a little low cut, but wearing it with pants helps to keep things classy.

Here is a picture from our anniversary date! It was such a great night out with my husband and it was so sweet of Beckett’s Mom and sisters to watch Wolfie for us so we could go out!

We ate at Alexander’s the got coffee and ice cream as we walked out to a pier and around a little tourist area. It was magical!

BTW- Isn’t my husband cute?!



through the seasons

We always cherish our time spent in Door County Wisconsin with Beckett’s family. It’s kind of like heaven for me because of all the art, flowers, Swedish food, antiques, and that gorgeous lake! The annual trip is even more fun this year because Wolfie is at the age where everything is beautiful, exciting, and new. He loves smelling/licking/biting all of the flowers and seeing the trees sway above him.

Case in point:

Beckett and I love taking Wolfie in stores because he’s usually pretty good and it’s fun to show him things and find things he likes.

Wolfie may be a little spoiled right now. We’re working on it, k? πŸ™‚ see all the pretty flowers?!Due to the color and pattern this dress is a great summer to fall dress and I highly recommend it. It runs true to size, if not a little big under the arms so don’t size up. the sweater is great because it’s also a great piece to help bring your wardrobe from summer to fall since it’s great for layering and the color is perfect.

dress: ROMWE | sweater: ROMWE | shoes: Coach for under $50!! | earrings: Maurice’s (similar from SugarFix for under $7)!

Wolfie’s overalls: Target (similar) | shoes: Puma (similar)

Yummmmmy Summer Family Treats

We just started letting Wolfie eat a few sweet treats and by far his favorite is ice cream. He absolutely loves it and it's so sweet to watch him eat it. So when Arctic Zero asked me if they could send us their 4 new flavors I knew our whole family could enjoy it!!!!

Arctic Zero is technically not ice cream, but it is a frozen dessert treat made with protein powder, fiber, water, natural sweetness, and other good ingredients. As a one year old I still don't want Wolfie eating tons of sweet things, but it feels good to know this company cares about what goes into their treats.

We've tried their frozen desserts before and really really liked them, but these new flavors are soooo good! We found ours at Walmart before, but I know you can order them for a quick delivery from Amazon too! If you order online they come packed cutely in a box with dry ice– just make sure you're home to get the treats before they melt!!!!

I like keeping a low cal treat around because if we have ice cream stocked in our freezer Beckett and I may go to bed with big bowls of ice cream a lot (at least 2x a week). Is that bad? πŸ˜› Beckett and Wolfie especially loved the dilly bar flavor because Cake Batter is so sweet!My favorite was the Cherry Chocolate Chunk because it was uber refreshing, but all of them were good!!!!! Rocky Road Trip was amazing too, mostly because it had a great fluffy consistiency and marshmallows. And Peanut. Butter. Swirl. Need I say more?

He's so funny about sharing everything lately. see? Haha

Below you can see the cake batter dilly bar! They have a red velvet chocolate shell ❀

Don't worry, Wolfie didn't have too much of any of the flavors, but he can't wait till we bring them out again!


This post is brought to you by Arctic Zero, but all thoughts and opinions are my own. I actually really wanted to work with Arctic Zero for awhile now because I've had their treats before and they are amazing!

Oh and there's one last picture I had to share:
