GOLD COAST, GOLD LOAFERS (and embroidered denim)

Happy Hump Day! In a way Wednesdays are like Friday’s for Logan and me because we’re done nannying for the week. We adore the kids we nanny, but Thursdays, Fridays, and weekends are our days to sleep in an hour later and devote more time to the blog, which I love to do so it hardly feels like work.


So if you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen this top once or twice already, with good reason! It’s a great top! It’s chic and on trend, but, because it’s a tee, it’s so comfortable that it’s easy to forget your look is pretty chic while you’re wearing it! ๐Ÿ˜‰


Is it just me or does this pinstripe top speak for itself? ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ The puff sleeves take it from favorable to fabulous and elevate what would be a fairly typical frock to be so much more fun, extravagant, and, for me, deliciously luxurious, making the fact that it is from Forever 21 that much more wonderful.


I have to say that before I got pregnant, I had the cutest workout gear and so many outfits that I loved exercising in, but once my baby (and boobs) got to a certain size, it felt like nothing I found really gave my belly (or boobs) enough coverage and support to make me feel comfortable while venturing to the gym. Plus I didn’t want to spend a fortune on exercise clothes I would only wear for a few months! Enter: TJMaxx.


Ft. the best everyday hoodie for spring / Hi guys! We’re driving back from Chicago right now (blogging from my phone), and I am sooo pumped at all the hints of spring we’ve been starting to have! We recently saw some Muscari (the flowers that look like grapes) beginning to sprout! Hopefully they don’t die if it gets cold again :/. And this weekend in Chi-town, the streets, parks, and beaches were peppered with people out enjoying the 60-70 degree weather. ๐Ÿค—


Adidas’ Originals for your Best Athleisure Looks / Thank goodness for athleisure because I have been living in it (as seen here and here) and these adidas joggers are no exception. They’re a great change up from leggings and are so cute and flattering in, well, a more leisurely athletic way (lol). Of course, you don’t have to wear them with sportswear all the time! I decided to style them casually but with clothing that wouldn’t be considered athletic wear…


With Valentine’s Day less than a week away, I thought I’d share an option for those of us looking for a last-minute look that is on theme but doesn’t necessarily scream Valentine’s Day. Best of all, it’s ON SALE, just in time! The detailing and cut of the top around the neck and shoulder line are perfect, but my favorite part is the scalloping at the bottom, making this classic shift dress a bit more flirty and fun.


Oversized sweaters are trending more than ever this winter, and it’s the best when trends are cozy and comfy, am I right!? Rather than the smaller silhouette you’d typically see paired with this oversized sweater, I decided to go a different route and keep my jogger obsession going strong. I love doing the unexpected to keep things fresh and interesting.

BOMBER MEETS BEANIE + Different Ways to Style a Bomber Jacket

One of the great things about winter: Beanies! I got this pom beanie for Christmas, as well as this scarf (from different people, and they just happened to work together!). But in other news, bomber jackets continue to be going strong this season, and I love the burgundy hue and varsity-jacket style of this one. I wear it everywhere, over my workout clothes to the gym, the grocery store, or with black skinny jeans for date night…


In high school I remember stealing my mom’s bodysuits, and my friends made fun of me when I would wear them. They were considered something of the 80’s, and yet, here they are today, back in all their glory :). Really, I like to think of them as a convenience thingโ€”like my 9-month-old’s onesies, they stay in place, and they don’t ride up! They’re brilliant…
