This blog post I'm channeling my inner farmer. I showed up wearing this and my nephew said, "Aunt Jessa what are you wearing? You look funny." It is crazy how perceptive little kids are, he is only 4 and already knew that he didn't like this "style". Well despite kids not liking this outfit I was really digging these overalls. Plus they are so comfortable I totally forgot about the comfort level of them.
Are you looking for a fresh new website for invitations? Basic Invite is a great site. I have tried minted, shuttterfly, and Mpix for cards and invitations. I am always looking for a site where I can do more customization. I was really impressed with Basic Invite. So I wanted to share a few of their products with you.
I have been seeing these sock booties all over and decided it was finally time to get a pair. Once again I didn't want to spend too much on them so I was able to find them at ASOS. They are sleek, cool, and surprisingly very comfortable. The only problem with them is I am not one that has trendy NYFW kind of style. So finding a "cool" outfit to wear with them was a bit of a stretch. I settled upon this faux skirt with an oversized sweater. I loved how it looked but my legs were quite cold so I can't wait to wear these sock booties with some leggings.
Our master bedroom is FINALLY finished! At least I think it is. After months and months of trying to create my makeup area as well as finding the perfect night stands I think I finally figured it out. With the help of some faux fur to make the room seem a little softer I'm really happy with how it all came together. Check it out!
Have you guys been seeing all the pearls for fall? I was a little apprehensive since I think pearls are super girlie and I don't categorized myself as a girlie girl. But when I saw these jeans at Zara with a touch of pearls I had to get them. Nothing says a little date night outfit like jeans with embellishments.
I recently hosted a girls night unlike any other. I have been wanting to host a girls night but one with a purpose. I am constantly asking Jay to remind me how to do CPR on a child as well as walk me through the steps if Leo was choking. I feel very lucky that Jay is so well versed in CPR but not everyone has that luxury. So the idea was born to host a CPR girls night. This is something that all Mom's should do..... more about this informational night below.
Hi there I can't believe we are almost a week into fall. My house is already decorated in halloween/fall stuff and I have my fall scents going in my scentsy warmer.....but it has been 80 degrees. I am so glad we live in a place where we have 4 seasons cause I AM SO OVER SUMMER. I have always been drawn to fall colors hence why I had a fall wedding and I also love all the fall clothes. So when I saw this plaid shirt on Zara I had to have it. I mean how much more fall can you get than a traditional red and black plaid shirt...... with embroidery on the back. Ummm hello did Zara design this shirt with me in mind. I think so!
Two weeks ago I talked about some terrible sleep habits (check out that post HERE). And from that post I tried to make some changes in my sleep habits, mostly having a consistent bed time and wake up time. And I'm happy to report that setting a sleep schedule seems to be helping ALOT. What I have noticed if I try and lay down too early I just end up tossing and turning. I think for me the biggest help has been realizing my natural bed time. I am not a morning person I am much more of a night owl so going to bed a little later at 11pm and waking up at 7/7:30 am works for me. But I know not everyone has the joy of waking up at 7 or a touch later. I'm here to give you some more healthy sleep habits and hopefully correct the bad sleeping habits I talked about last week.
We recently took a trip to Sandpoint Idaho. If you have read my blog you have probably gathered my LOVE for Idaho. I think it is the most underrated state... anyways we were headed out on a vacation and I was looking for a bag I can throw everything in. And by everything I mean, diapers, Leo's cars, my big camera, sunglasses, pretty much the kitchen sink. As I searched my closet I knew the exact bag to grab... my Gabby Box Luci Design 101 triangle bag.
Gosh I can't resist a moto jacket....and how great is this blush colored one! I picked this up at Zara earlier this summer with the intent that no matter the season I was going to wear this jacket. I am SO NOT A PINK kind of girl, but I can get behind this shade of pink. I know I treat blush as a neutral in my closet and I'm here to tell you why.
