Instagram Roundup

Happy Wednesday! It's only halfway through the work week and I'm already ready for the weekend again! Last Sunday, I went to a blogger brunch put on by the CEO of Style Collective! I met other local bloggers and carpooled by with girls, Samantha from Life and Messy Hair and Carolyn from Life with Miss Myrtle! They both have amazing blogs that you definitely need to check out! It was an outing filled with eggs benedict, crepes, mimosas, blog photos, and chatting! 

Today, I'm sharing an Instagram Roundup! Right now with this weird weather, I'm living in light layers! Yesterday, it was eighty degrees and today's high is literally twenty degrees cooler. I'm so ready to ditch the jacket for awhile! I hope you all have a wonderful day and thank you so much for stopping by!

Black and White

off the shoulder top, how to wear white denim, spring style, style on a budget

Hey y'all! I hope your week is off to a great start! Saturday, I ran my yearly 5K. I literally only run this one time of year because it's for a great cause. I work for a non-profit afterschool enrichment program so each year, we work to gather sponsors to raise money for our program. I workout 4-5 days a week but I'm so not a runner... and I remember that each year when I run this race. I might still be sore from Saturday but I did have my best time ever of 31 minutes. It's nothing impressive but I'm still pretty proud of myself. 

Today, I'm sharing a classic black and white look that's perfect for springtime! I am a firm believer that your closet cannot contain too much black. It's the perfect color for the days when you "don't have anything to wear." When I spotted this top (it's only $35!), I knew that I needed to add it to my closet! It definitely takes your basic black top up a few notches. The back detail is my favorite! The top fits loosely but still flattering and runs true to size (I'm wearing a size small for reference). I paired it with white skinny jeans because I love black and white together! I added my $30 flatform espadrilles, a few simple jewels, and my animal print crossbody bag to complete the look. I also plan to pair this adorable top with distressed denim shorts when summer arrives. 

I hope you have an amazing day! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Kites and Flares

spring style, cuddy studios, style on a budget, mom style, lifestyle blogger

Hey y'all! I hope you all had a great weekend! On Friday, we celebrated my daughter's seventh birthday! She was completely spoiled all day long with donuts for breakfast, Chick-Fil-A and cookies at school for lunch, getting her hair cut and styled like Belle, a pizza party with friends and family, and then we topped the night off by seeing the new Beauty and the Beast movie! It was such a fun day!

Today, I'm styling another beautiful piece from the Spring 2017 Collection from Cuddy StudiosCuddy is a brand that specializes in colorful, modern photographic prints in simple silhouettes that are reminiscent of the sixties and seventies. All of their fabrics are digitally printed from original, hand cut artwork. The process starts with hand-cut geometric shapes that are arranged into a unique design. Then the design is photographed and digitized on the computer. The computer created a more elaborate pattern that is printed on their exclusive crepe fabric and then turned into their gorgeous clothing! The top I am styling today was creating using this process.

I styled the Felicity tie top in allover Kites print with my favorite flare leg jeans, open toe, booties, simple jewels, and a neutral bag. I wanted to keep my outfit simple with this top because the top really steals the show. I love the vibrant colors and the kite print! The tie can be worn tied like I did or untied for a different look depending on the ocassion. I think this top would also be so perfect with white skinny jeans and wedges for a spring or summer date night, which exactly how I plan to wear it next time! For size reference, I'm wearing a size small in this top and I find that it runs true to size.

Be sure to follow the links on this post to see more from Cuddy Studios. Also, next week I will styling another gorgeous piece from their spring collection. I hope you have a wonderful day and thank you so much for visiting!

Currently Loving


Happy Friday, Happy St. Patrick's Day, AND Happy Seventh Birthday to my oldest daughter, Julianna! There's so much to celebrate! Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm currently loving. Which one of my picks is your favorite?!

1. Cognac Tote | I am loving this roomy tote bag! It would be perfect for carrying to work because it has enough room for my laptop and planner. Plus it's the perfect neutral color!

2. Utility Jacket | A good utility jacket is definitely a closet staple. This perfect one is on sale for about $40! It's such a great deal!

3. Flip Flops | These flip flops are definitely on the pricey side for flip flops but I recently bought them and they are definitely worth splurging for. I literally live in flip flops all summer and the quality of this pair is amazing.

4. Lavender Peplum Top | Y'all know I love a good peplum top and this one doesn't disappoint! I am loving this soft shade of lavender.

5. Blush Bag | How cute is this bag?! I am loving the circle detail and the color. It also goes in a taupe version that I love as well!

6. Hoop Earrings | I am currently loving hoop earrings like these! They give you the look of hoops without putting a lot of strain on your ear lobes. I have such sensitive ears and I always prefer earrings that are secured with a post.

7. Flatform Espadrilles | I bought this pair of espadrilles last year and they are back for this season. They are so comfortable and I wore them several times a week! They run true to size and are pretty much the perfect shoe for spring and summer!

8. Cold Shoulder Tee | My favorite tee now comes in this cold shoulder version! Isn't it fun?! I can't wait to add this to my closet!

Springtime Staples

Hey y'all! Today, I'm ironically chatting about springtime staples as winter has made a dramatic return! We have had such a mild winter (thank goodness) and just when I thought it was officially spring, the frigid temperatures have returned. Like I mentioned in Tuesday's post, dressing for spring is all about the layers! Layering up is the only way to survive the ups and downs of spring weather. 

One of my favorite staples for my spring wardrobe is a good denim jacket. It's the perfect way to stay warm while wearing your new spring dresses and tops. I styled my favorite denim jacket (I own this dark color, a lighter wash, and a white one) with another one of my wardrobe essentials, a swing dress! This dress is so flattering and runs true to size. I also own it in black and I wore it almost once a week last year. The jacket and dress are two of my very favorite Old Navy finds. The quality is so good! I paired the jacket/dress combo with my blush sneakers, a neutral bag, and mixed metal jewels for the perfect look for running errands, going out for a casual dinner, or anytime you want to be comfortable yet put together. This is definitely one of my favorite springtime styles!

I hope you all have a wonderful Thursday! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Instagram Roundup


Happy Wednesday! I'm halfway through a super busy week. Last night, we held our annual Math Carnival at work, our biggest fundraiser of the year is also this week, and Friday is Julianna's seventh birthday! I spent yesterday morning gathering up the rest of the things I needed for her birthday celebration. We are going to her favorite pizza place for dinner and then we are going to see the new Beauty and the Beast movie with friends and family! She's also going to get her hair done right after school so that she'll look just like Belle, complete with the beautiful yellow dress! I think I might be even a little more excited than she is. I can't wait to share all of the details with y'all!

Today, I'm rounding up my Instagram photos from last week. We had a great combination of spring and winter weather! I was able to wear sandals and boots all in one week. So super crazy! 

I hope you all have a wonderful day!
