Sorry I have been so MIA guys!! I am in the middle of moving this week and it’s been pretty hectic. I leave for my husbands job this Friday – it makes me so sad to be leaving my home! On a positive note, I haven’t seen Joel for almost three weeks, so we are ready to be together again.
This top is such a fun summer piece – I love the print and that it screams summer! I can’t wait for the summer weather to finally make an appearance too so I can pull out some shorts and summer dresses! Anyways, I have to keep this short and sweet because truly I have been trying to pack and get organized but somehow I still have so much left to do – so here it goes! I hope you are all having such an amazing week and I promise my posts will be more frequent again once we are more settled in. Thanks for reading!

Happy Monday loves! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. Addi and I have been a little lonely duo with Joel being away – but we ended up spending lots of time with her nana and papa and watching shows in bed snuggling this weekend! Addi is getting her top two teeth right now and hasn’t quite been herself, it makes me so sad knowing she is in so much pain! Any teething remedies would be greatly appreciated – I try to give her Tylenol at night, but aside from that nothing I have tried works!!
This look is one I wore for a busy day touring around San Fran! It’s hard to believe we were there only three short weeks ago – I already want to go back! This was right around the corner from the famous Painted Ladies (where Full House was filmed) across the street from Alamo Square! I found this blouse at Anthropologie, and couldn’t adore it more! It is perfect for everyday life as a mama (and especially for you mamas who nurse!) This long cardi was perfect to add an extra layer because it was hella windy while we were there. I think this sweater will be on repeat this summer, it’s the perfect lightweight piece and can be worn with so much!
Thanks for reading – I love you guys!

It’s hard to believe that almost two weeks ago we celebrated our sweet Addilyn’s first birthday with all of our closest friends and family! It was truly a special day and we feel so grateful to have had the most wonderful support during our first year of parenthood.
It was so fun having everyone over – our house was filled with so many kids and cousins – it was hilarious watching them all! Addi wasn’t her usual self because she was still recuperating from the flu she had the week prior – but between a nap and some cake, she was pretty dang cute! The way she so delicately tore tiny pieces off of her smash cake was probably one of my favourite parts of the day, she’s such a dainty little thing!
Anyways, here’s a photo overload of celebrating our little lady turning ONE – I hope you all enjoy. Feel free to leave any questions in the comments or email me – I tried to do my best to share where everything for the party was from, but if I missed something let me know!
ps. don’t mind the photo quality.. the first ones are with our camera that died (of course!!) halfway through the party hence the rest being iPhone photos, oops!
Top: Anthropologie | Boyfriend Jeans: Zara (old, similar here) | Flats: American Eagle | Bag: Mari Lassa c/o | Sunnies: Karen Walker
I love a simple boho look these days! There’s something so easy about slipping on a fun flowy top – with lots of textures and patterns, and a pair of boyfriend jeans. It may have taken me two seconds to get dressed – but I walk out the door feeling put together and cute! Add this gorgeous Mari Lassa bag into the mix, and the look is complete.
When it comes to bags – I am so picky. I like to choose timeless, QUALITY bags that I know I will have for a very long time. Ones that are versatile and that can be worn with various looks and styles. When I received this gem from Mari Lassa – I was absolutely over the moon. This bag is even more gorgeous in person, the soft, distressed leather is amazing. All of their bags are handmade in Bend, Oregon with leather that is from Germany – which has been specially finished to give the distressed look. Mari Lassa bags are incredibly unique and the story behind creating each bag is so special! This bag fits so much, and as a mama, that is so important!! Convenience and style – I’ll take it!

Happy Monday loves! This post is something a little special today – I am wearing a necklace that I helped design with Taudrey! It was such a fun project, and I feel is the perfect everyday piece to dress up or down, and is also amazing for layering!! I named it the “Everly” necklace after Addilyn’s middle name! Everly was actually what I thought we were going to name her all throughout my pregnancy, but my husband insisted on Addilyn, and when she came out, we put them together and it flowed so well, so both names have such importance to me! Anyways, I hope you all love it as much as I do and be sure to check out some of the other pieces from the Taudrey Blogger Collection.

Lace and dark skinnies have been a fav combo of mine lately! I think because it’s still too cold to whip out the shorts, this is a fun way to wear boho tops as we are transitioning into warmer weather. This top was a score from Zara and I can say the details and design are so gorgeous – even more so in real life! I love anything lace, and this top just speaks to me!! I recently was told that I dress like how I decorate my home – which is just too funny! It made me realize that when a person has a certain style, it trickles out and shows through in all parts of your life – whether it’s your clothing, home decor, or your nail polish preference, style is unique and something that should always reflect you and who you are! So if you’re like me and dress like you’re wearing your lace curtains, don’t be ashamed!!
On another note, these espadrilles are a MUST. I scored them at Forever21 for $24 – and they are surprisingly enough good quality! Sometimes it’s a nice option to save vs. splurge on items in your closet – and these espadrilles are a prime example of that! I hope you all are having a beautiful week – I am enjoying the sunshine and warmer temps with some walks and park dates with my little babe. Stay tuned this week for Addi’s one year photoshoot I did, as well as her first birthday party! I can’t wait to share it with all of you.

Happy Monday! I am excited to start a fresh week – I swear the last seven days have been a blur.. Between a quick 4 day birthday trip to San Fran (thank you all for the birthday wishes btw) with my hubby, a sick baby, and birthday party prepping – it has felt so busy! Of course on our first trip leaving Addi behind, she catches a flu bug and is sick almost the entire time at my parent’s house. My mom waited a bit to tell me because she knew I would book the next flight home to be with Addilyn, so I had no clue! I am just glad she has the best nana who tended and took such good care of her. I have to say though, I felt the more guilty than I ever have in my life being away from Addi during such a hard time – she has never vomited (aside from spit up as a baby), and I felt terrible not being there for her while she was experiencing that.
Throughout the week when we got back, she still wasn’t herself – barely drinking or eating, and was sleeping constantly. Even on her actually birthday, she was just drowsy and so attached to me all day – nothing was making her happy! Friday night we ended up taking her into emerg to make sure she wasn’t dehydrated after she had thrown up and had diarrhea again. We ended up waiting for so long only to find out they said we are doing everything right and she just needs time to recover! After resting and sleeping through the night and most of the next day, we kept the plans for her party and even though she wasn’t fully herself, we still enjoyed the time with our family and friends! Both yesterday and today, she has been much more happy and feeling better – I am so relieved!
Anyways, this look is one that I can’t get enough of. A simple button down, skinnies and my new fav espadrilles (which I scored at the Shopbop friends & family sale)! I think these espadrilles will be on major repeat for spring and summer – I couldn’t wait to pull them out!! Anyways this was a long post, but I wanted to fill you all in on Addi and thank always for the sweet get well wishes and support! I hope you all had a beautiful weekend and are enjoying a fresh start to your week!
