Jump into Jumpsuits with Nikki Poulos

Last year as the summer came to a close I realized I did not have nearly enough light and airy sun dresses for the sweltering days when you’d honestly rather just go naked. This year I made a promise to myself to stock my closet with these very dresses, so I pretty much assumed they would be my wardrobe this summer and boy how wrong I was! I’ve been living in jumpsuits and billowy pants this whole time. I’m not mad at it.

I love the versatility that jumpsuits offer, they’re such a fun alternative to maxi dresses or regular pants. This jumpsuit by Nikki Poulos is one of the softest, most comfortable garments I’ve ever worn. I love the tie around the waist which really accentuates your curves and reaaaallllly gives the illusion of a much tinier waist, ha!

I kept my accessories relatively simple because the print is sooo bold I didn’t want to overwhelm anyone… or myself with a whole bunch going on, ha. The Roman Luxe necklace is my jam guys! I love the thick acrylic chain and gorgeous crystal flower. This particular necklace is no longer available but I’ve linked to some similar styles above. Happy shopping!

Home Fur the Holidays

I am thankful for so many things… my family, my happy, loving, amazing daughter, my husbands good swimmers (had to be said), my cat that thinks he’s a human, and good food. But seriously, Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, it truly rivals Christmas! I live for Thanksgiving dinner, which is why I simply had to wear some stretchy pants this year. In style, of course.

NMS_5478_2 DSC_5486 DSC_5491 DSC_5501 DSC_5506 DSC_5511 DSC_5519I love fur vests. Mine does not get enough action. I have a cropped fur jacket I don’t wear enough either. The jacket makes me look like a movie star, which would be cool and all, except for the fact that I feel like I look like a douchebag in it… womp womp, haha! [All of this fur, btw, is faux, so no worries there!] I’ve had this shirt for-ever! I think I actually wore it 2 Thanksgiving’s ago, and I’m not even entirely sure where it came from; I’m completely guessing below.

Anyway. I hope everyone had a lovely, wonderful, relaxing holiday and stuffed your faces full of my favorite food! Until next time, kisses!

Carpe Diem

Carpe Diem. Seize the day. I have really always liked that little tid bit of encouragement. If only I paid attention to it more often. Is there a Latin phrase for “seize the couch?”

This post is really all about my new shoes. I’ve been on the hunt for a pair just like these but had little luck finding a pair that was stylish and comfortable. While perusing the aisles of Target last week I came across these beauties. To my surprise they were both stylish and comfortable! They’re kind of like a mullet: business in the front and party in the back. I’m obsessed.

I actually love this outfit. I may throw some black tights under the skirt and recycle this outfit for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day at our house. It’s a cute outfit for a hostess! Side note.. it’s getting WAY too cold to shoot outside. I’m going to have to find some creative indoor spaces soon, or else my blog is taking a LONG hiatus! haha, well until next time, kisses!

Date nights (or any night that includes just getting out of the house) have been far and few between lately. When my parents finally came home from Aruba right at the peak of Char’s separation anxiety phase, we jumped at the chance to go out to dinner, even if it was only for like an hour! #parentingproblems

I’ve had this skirt for a few years now but it’s one of my favorites. I love the zipper in the front. My husband always insists I’m wearing it backwards. Sometimes I just wanna hit him… ;]

You can see a little peek of my tattoo! Well, you can see all of the bird, but only a smidge of the music notes. Actually the detail of the back is why I bought this top in the first place. I wasn’t crazy about the fact that it was a crop top, never really knew where I would wear it. But I was sold on the back. I paired it with my high waisted skirt and I think they worked pretty well together.

RING: C/O ROMAN LUXE

Roman Luxe has the most amazing cocktail rings! They are so big and blingy and fun! I swooned over all of them, seriously. Aside from my wedding rings I probably wear RL rings the most. Definitely visit their site, they’re having the most amazing sale!

About 2 weeks ago I decided I was going to cut my hair… like.. chop it all off! I was just so sick of having to do so much to it every single day to even get it to look somewhat tame. However, I got a blowout this weekend and changed my mind. Honestly, what the hell was I thinking? Someone must have slipped crack into my cheerios because I never want to cut my hair! hah! I had a traumatic experience in high school and swore I would never cut my hair past my shoulders again. Thank goodness I’ve come to my senses! But with fall coming up so soon I will need to make some kind of change… any suggestions? And on that note, that’s all for now kiddies! Have a great day! Kisses!

Black, White, and Red All Over

We were supposed to have this big storm that was going to come and break up this god awful heat wave we’re having… I haven’t noticed one yet, have you? My hair certainly hasn’t noticed less humidity yet either! I wore this dress on Saturday in hopes of it being a little cooler out than it was, no dice!

I’m kind of loving that the sun is making my hair even lighter… saving me a little self-inflicted damage I suppose! ha.. Anyway, I wore this little number out to dinner for my hub’s birthday. Another celebration! This time with the whole fam. I typically don’t enjoy birthdays, there is always so much pressure to make them “the best birthday ever!” It never works out that way, does it? But this year we had a nice relaxing weekend, complete with a couples massage, lots of wine, a little shopping, and LOTS of relaxing! Muy bueno.

OH and how exciting that the Royal Baby is on their way!! I heard a rumor if they have a girl they are considering the name Charlotte! And North West was born on Charlotte’s birthday as well. I think this is a sign from the universe that she’s destined for greatness! haha ;] Until next time, kisses!

Now You See Me…

Now you don’t! That’s the general rule of thumb when you see someone wearing camo, right? You have to make some kind of joke about how you can’t see them, or a hunting joke. It’s almost a little bit of a shocker if someone doesn’t make some cheesy comment like that. When I wore camo pants this weekend I was armed and ready for some jokes to be thrown my way!

My husband and I typically stop for coffee each and every weekend morning. We’ll load Charlotte up in the car, stop and get coffee and a mobile breakfast, then drive around for a little while. This weekend we decided to stop at Starbucks and walk the Grove since it was kind of nice out in the morning. That is where I found these pants and sunglasses that I’m newly obsessed with. The pants speak for themselves, you can literally see in pictures how comfortable they are. Definitely a great investment. Come fall I’ll be excited to pair them with a cream sweater and some low boots, yum. These sunglasses are fantastic because I feel like they’re a morph of two trends, round & cat’s eye. They’re not 100% round, but they’re not 100% cat’s eyes either. They’re so fun.

This weekend we had a birthday celebration for my husband & his best friend, who were born a week apart and who have been celebrating their birthday’s together since they were 11! How freaking cute is that? We went out on a big “pirate ship” for the day, to which I wore flat sandals to be comfortable, then switched into these shoes and headed into town for pizza, drinks, and eventually more drinks and dancing, ha! We had a blast. You can see a better view of the sunglasses in the picture below.

See what I mean about the shape? Super versatile. Anyway… How was your weekend loves? Until next time, kisses!
