Winter Boot Roundup

Anyone else celebrate Fall until October 31st, and move straight into Christmas? I love moving right into decorating, and this year the weather followed suit with cold Winter temps! I hate frigid weather, but I do love a good excuse to slip into a cozy Winter boot! These boots are my absolute fave of all time! I lived in them last Winter, they’re so comfy, yet cute! I’m loving this year’s new hues (here, here & here), as well! My go-to with my fave faux leather leggings this year are chunky hiking boots! I love a cozy wedge sneaker for a chic casual look also! Of course, I love rolling down this staple with a sherpa pullover, too!

My Amazon Home Must Haves

 

Amazon Home Must Haves

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10

#1. The Softest Sheets | These sheets are not only the softest and great quality, but they’re also extremely affordable, so you can stock up your linen closet! They come in a variety of colors, as well.

#2. Sanitizing Steam Mop | When Hudson was a baby and crawling all over the house, it put my mind at ease knowing I can sanitize the floors in just a few minutes. It’s still one of my favorite cleaning items. I bought these extra steam mop pads to go with it.

#3. The Ultimate Carpet/Upholstery Stain Remover | I often get asked, how do you have a white couch with a toddler!? This product is one of the main reasons we are able to! (I’ll do a post on the others soon.) There has been everything from mac and cheese, to markers on our white couch, and this removes literally anything and everything, and it’s non-toxic. I keep an arsenal of these in our cleaning cabinet, because you can use it in your carpet scrubber also!

#4. Fridge & Pantry Organizers | I use these throughout the fridge to keep yogurts, juice boxes, and fruit organized. I love using them throughout the cabinets (especially lazy suzan cabinets) to store carton foods, rice, quinoa, etc. I love this larger option also.

#5. Wool Dryer Balls |  Instead of using dryer sheets, I add essential oils to these dryer balls to cut down on drying time, and soften our clothes without synthetic fragrances and chemicals.

#6. Drawer Organizers | Micro-organizing makes life so much easier IMO. I use these in the bathroom drawers, and my desk drawers and it prevents them from becoming “junk drawers.”

#7. Stainless Steel Squeegee | This is an essential for glass shower doors. It keeps them streak-free in-between cleanings.

#8. Spinning Organizer | I have two corner cabinets in my kitchen, and this has been the ultimate solution for keeping them organized! I put all of our thermos style cups, and bottles in them and it keeps everything nice and neat. I also use them in our medicine cabinet and to organize spices.

#9. Microfiber Facial Washcloths | Literally the softest washcloths ever! I love using these to remove makeup, and wash and exfoliate my face at night.

#10. Dyson Pure Cool Link Wi-Fi Air Purifier | With us having allergies and asthma in our family, I feel so much better having an air purifier. It automatically removes 99.97% of allergens and pollutants, including pollen, dust, mold spores, bacteria and pet dander from your home.

 

Matcha Chia Seed Pudding

Matcha green tea powder is pretty much the mothership of superfoods. Need an energy pick me up? Want to boost your metabolism? Clear your skin? Lower anxiety? Fortify your immune system? Improve concentration? It’s a cure all! Any chance i can sneak a teaspoon, I do!

I love making chia seed pudding and sticking it in the fridge for a quick snack or dessert. Chia seeds kept you feeling fuller longer, so I love bringing them to work with me. I decided to combine the two to reap all the benefits!

Matcha Chia Seed Pudding

Makes 2 Servings

1 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (or other Non-Dairy milk)

4 TBSP Chia Seeds

1 tsp Matcha Green Tea Powder

1 Squirt of Stevia (or 1 packet)

Optional: Unsweetened Organic Coconut Shreds

Toppings: sliced strawberries, banana, blueberries, chocolate chips, nuts

Mix ingredients (except for toppings) in a bowl or mason jar (I like to use a mason jar with a lid then divide into servings). Let sit overnight, top with your favorite toppings!

My 5 Top Nordstrom Sale Must-Haves

The NSale is officially live for public access! Here are my top must-haves to scoop up before they are gone!

#1 LEOPARD | I will be incorporating leopard detail in booties, camis and cardis this Fall! The neutral print is so versatile, you can’t go wrong! This comfy cardi is sold out (not sure if it will be restocking), but I found a dupe here! I can’t wait to pair this silk cami with long dusters! (More options: here, here & here)

Skirt | Denim (another great buy!)

#2 GLO PRO | This has been one of my favorite beauty buys. I use the lip, eye, and body attachments, as well. It basically tricks your skin into thinking it needs repaired, so cellular growth is promoted, allowing products to penetrate deeper into the skin to be much more effective! [ Sale Price $179 – Retail $260]

#3 OVERSIZED SWEATERS | I’m soaking in all the oversized coziness when crisp Fall air arrives. These pullovers pair perfectly with these boots, or these must have leggings and slip on flats! (Another great option)

#4 SNAKESKIN BOOTS | Another neutral print I’m loving this season. These boots are a fun alternative to a basic taupe or black, to spice up any outfit! [Sale Price $79.90 – Retail $119.95]

#5 RUNNING SHOES | I normally get a new pair of running shoes each Fall. This staple has a fun subtle dose of sparkle! They also come in White/Rose Gold combo. [Sale Price $63.90 – Retail $85]

If you’re looking to stock up on gift ideas, I recommend this throw, this blanket, or this diffuser! I’d love to know your favorite finds, as well!

My NSale Picks & Tips

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 |15 |16

It’s finally here, and it did not disappoint! I rounded up my top picks from this year’s Anniversary sale, with staples to build a chic F/W wardrobe. As someone who thrives off of neutral hues, (& a closet full of them), I am loving snakeskin footwear this season!

TIPS:

  • Shop online & Pick Up in Store.. Items are selling out at an all time high this year. I ordered my items online, for in-store pick up
  • If an item you love does sell out, be sure to keep checking online in case returns are made.. I am dying for these booties!
  • Snag investment staples.. I focus on my everyday core pieces: boots, denim, sweaters, cami’s, activewear
  • Pair your pieces.. If you can’t create multiple outfits out of it, it’s probably not the best investment piece
  • School Shop.. Hudson begins preschool in August, I stocked up on shoes, boots and outerwear before they go to full price
  • Stock up.. Blink, and the holidays will be here! It’s the perfect time to stock up on beauty, accessories & home pieces

I’ll be styling pieces, as well as including my top picks for kids and home decor, stay tuned!

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!

Fall Staples Under $100

Fall Staples

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!
