Fall Transition

Cardigan | Tank | Denim | Boots | Bag | Earrings

Hudson: Shirt | Joggers | Boots

You know that time of year when the morning air is crisp enough to make you reach for cardigans and boots? That transition period gets me so ecstatic, because I live for all things Fall!

I can’t count the number of times that I realize Hudson and I are unintentionally in coordinating clothing. Coincidence, or maybe my subconscious styling us? ha. It was his first time strolling city streets this week, (we live in the middle of corn fields, cows, and crickets!) and he loved every minute of it! He’s definitely his mama’s child!

I love transition pieces like long cardigans, utility and denim jackets, because I can layer them over tanks and tees, and remove them as it warms up throughout the day. These boots are ridiculously comfy, and come in sleek neutrals!

The joy on his face captures my heart! There is nothing I love more than taking him places to explore!

We couldn’t end the day without a treat! The Milkshake Factory is high up on the list of deliciousness, and one of our new faves! If you’re in the city, it’s a must!

By the time August rolls around every year, I have my fix of warm weather, and I’m ready to hightail it into Fall. I love layering on cozy cardigans, denim, utility and suede jackets with my go-to basics. These pieces are such a great basis to mix and match, and extend your Fall wardrobe, all at an affordable price tag!

Have a great week! Xo

When in doubt.. Go Monochromatic

Bodysuit | Denim | Bag: Goyard| Sunnies | Shoes | Earrings

Happy Thursday! I hope you’re having a great week! When chasing around a toddler, or preparing for a busy day, a foolproof way of getting ready in a hurry, for me, is choosing a monochromatic look. There’s something so sleek about an all black ensemble!

For Spring and Summer, I love a crisp all white look! I am always stocking up on basic tees and tanks, and neutral shades of denim, because it really extends your wardrobe and mixes and matches so well!

These are some of my favorite tees, tie front tees, tanks, and bodysuits. When I find a style and fit that’s right for me, I invest in multiple colors.

I’d love to here your favorite go-to basics!

Swimsuit Steals

Bikini Top | Bikini Bottom | Sunnies | Lip Color: Goddess & Razzberry

Hudson: Swimsuit | Sunnies | Sandals

As if these high waisted swimwear separates weren’t already a serious budget find, they’re currently BOGO 50%! That means you can get this swimsuit under $30, run girl, RUN! I love the crochet detail on the top, and the bottoms have a fun little tie on the back. They are two separates I mixed and matched, but they’re also great staples to pair with other pieces like a cute black and white stripe or gingham print! Click here to see some of my favorite suits on sale!

I found this cute little one piece SPF 50 rashguard swimsuit for Huds, that was too cute to pass up (espeiclaly for the price!) It was perfect for going to the beach in scorching temps! There are similar versions here, here, and here!

Enjoy your day!

How to Extend your Vacation Wardrobe

Top (old) (similar) | Denim (similar 1, 2, 3) | Espadrilles (similar 1, 2, 3) | Sunnies | Earrings | Handbag: Louis Vuitton

A 10 day vacation means getting creative with your wardrobe! I chose neutral staples so I could easily swap and mix and match, creating countless outfits with only a few key pieces. I was sure to pack white, black, olive, and dark denim, as well as multiple pairs of denim cutoffs. My tops included everything from lightweight sweaters, to basic tees, button down shirts, tanks and body suits. I added these neutral espadrilles to my suitcase right before I left and I’m so glad I did, they are not only extremely comfy, but they match absolutely everything! Neutral sandals and belts were also great additions to accommodate our itinerary. A large tote and small handbag were just enough for any occasion!

A black bodysuit makes a chic pairing with cutoff shorts, a black belt and sandals for day, then swapped for black denim and heels or espadrilles for night! Neutral pairings give you so many possibilities!

Follow along for multiple ways I paired each look!

The White Denim That’s a Must for Spring

Top (similar) | Denim | Sunnies | Earrings | Wedges | Lipstick: Strawberry Shortcake

I love adding striped pieces to my wardrobe because they’re timeless, so I know I’ll wear them for years! This one is a recent H&M find for only $5! One of my favorite ways to pair them is with white denim. It’s the ultimate Spring staple, and the first basic I grab to pair with espadrilles for a crisp, Spring look! This option is so comfy and super affordable! I love that they offer petite and tall options, as well, because a trip to the tailor with an almost 2 year old isn’t on my bucket list! (Ha!)

When I get back home to colder temps, I will definitely be swapping out my favorite taupe ankle boots and a neutral lightweight sweater for a chic transitional look. The key to transitioning white from Winter to Spring is sticking to neutral basics, without any sort of stark contrast.

White denim can be tricky, as to some fabrics are so thin they can be sheer. I love that this fabric is on the heavier side, so I don’t have to worry!

Snatch this style while you can, it’s currently 40% off at the checkout, making it under $22! Have a wonderful week!

Mediterranean Salad Pockets

I’m all about sticking to the 80/20 rule when it comes to nutrition. I actually crave healthy, clean foods, most of the time. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t pass up vegan pizza, donuts, or Mexican food at any given chance, (ha!) but I like to spice things up with quick, easy lunches so I don’t resort to snacking throughout the day.

These salad pita pockets are filled with yummy veggies and full of flavor!

Mediterranean Salad Pita Pockets

  • Cucumbers, sliced
  • Grape Tomatoes, sliced
  • Avocado, sliced
  • Tabouli
  • Hummus (I use Black Garlic flavor!)
  • Vegan Mozzarella (goat/feta can be used!)
  • Protein Options: Chickpeas, Lentils or Grilled Chicken
  • Cholula (optional)

Enjoy!

Crochet & Cutoffs

Bikini Top | Bikini Bottoms | Shorts | Shoes (similar: 1, 2, 3) | Earrings | Sunnies | Lipstick: Strawberry Shortcake

I can totally get on board with 70s and sunshine all Winter! The weather in South Florida right now could not be more ideal. I’ve been loving high waisted bikinis this season and this one comes at a serious steal! The detail is so fun! This bold suit and this muted option are on my wish list! I hope you’re having a great weekend!

Sunshine State of Mind

Shirt (similar) | Shorts | Sandals | Sunnies (under $15!)

Hudson: Shirt | Shorts | Shoes

We made it to our happy place for the next 10 days! It’s amazing what a little sunshine and warm weather can do for your mind, body, and soul. Stripes have been heavy on my radar, as of late. A lightweight boyfriend button down is such a great Spring staple to pair with everything from cutoff shorts to white denim! I can’t get enough of them. These suede wedges are the perfect neutral addition to my warm weather wardrobe! They’re not only comfortable, but such a great height, as well. I’m so excited to share my favorite Spring styles with gorgeous backdrops! Stay tuned!

Morning Wellness Latte

My morning go-to over the years have ranged from apple cider vinegar recipes to warm lemon water because they both have so many health benefits. Recently, I thought, why not combine them, with the addition of a few other superfoods?

The combination of ingredients really makes it beneficial to overall health from digestion to healthy skin, all while strengthening the immune system, perfect for flu season!

Health Benefits

Lemon Water – increases the metabolism, detoxifies, clears skin, improves digestion

Apple Cider Vinegar – reduces sugar cravings, strengthens the immune system, aids in digestion

Turmeric – helps joint & muscle health, strengths the immune system, promotes glowing skin

Ginger – relieves heartburn, fights infections, clears skin

Cayenne – boots metabolism, detoxifies,

great source of Vitamin E (anti-aging!)

Don’t get me wrong, this drink definitely has an acquired taste, especially if you aren’t used to using any of the ingredients. You can adjust the spices according to your liking, or start out slowly adding ingredients. I look forward to it for a little morning relaxation to start the day!

Morning Wellness Latte

  • 10 oz boiling water
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 TBSP ACV
  • 1 dash Turmeric
  • 1 shake Cayenne
  • 3 shakes Ginger

I’d love to hear your morning go-to drink, or if you’ve tried something similar to this one!
