The Perfect Transitional Sweater

Hey y'all and Happy Thursday! These gorgeous seventy degree days have me oh so ready for springtime and a trip to the beach! Anyone else so ready for beach days?! This weather is my absolute favorite. My closet is in transition right now because I am switching out some of my winter pieces for items that I can wear now when we still may have some cool days and items that will work for warmer temperatures. I love transitional clothing items that I can wear now and later. I have mentioned this many times but I love transitional style because it forces you to be creative with your wardrobe and you get more use out of items in your closet.

Today, I am styling the perfect transitional sweater to wear now with skinny jeans and later with boyfriend shorts when it gets warmer because I love sweaters with shorts. This sweater is one of my favorite finds from the new Universal Thread collection at Target. I love a good neutral sweater and the style of this one is so flattering. It fits oversized but I sized up one size (I'm wearing a medium) for an even more relaxed look. I have styled this a bralette underneath or with a tank, like I'm wearing in today's post. You could even do a front tuck with this sweater for another way to wear it. You just can't go wrong with a neutral sweater, especially this great budget friendly find that's under $25!

Instagram Roundup

north carolina blogger, style on a budget, mom style, what i wore, instagram roundup

Happy Wednesday! I hope you are having a great week! Like I mentioned yesterday, this week is an incredibly busy one for me. But, it's the kind of busy that is rewarding and fulfilling so I'm very thankful for that. The picture above is a reminder of my one word for the year... joy! You can read more about why I chose this word in this post. I have been earnestly seeking joy since the beginning of 2018 because it's something I definitely needed more of in my life. I have finding joy in the most simple things and choosing to find the good... even when it's hard. There's just something about flowers that make me so happy, especially when they are pink.

 Today, I'm rounding up photos from Instagram last week. We are experiencing a glorious spring preview here in North Carolina and I really hope it's here to stay!

Mom Must Have Convertible Cardigan

mom style, north carolina blogger, casual style, convertible cardigan, style on a budget

Hey y'all! I hope your week is off to a great start! This week is an incredibly busy one for me so thank goodness for a slow start to the week yesterday (my kids were out of school) and lots of coffee! During busy weeks, I need clothing items that are easy and functional, while still remaining stylish. Today, I am styling one of these kind of items and I think every woman, especially moms, need it!

I saw Mallory from Style Your Senses wearing this convertible cardigan last spring and I fell in love with the multiple style options!



This great convertible cardigan can be worn in a criss crossed wrap style (which would be so perfect for nursing moms) like pictured above or as a long cardigan by simply unsnapping it! I styled it with my favorite high waisted denim, a simple white tank, and cut out ankle boots for a the perfect, comfortable mom on the go style to create a great mom uniform!

Mom Uniform: a comfortable yet put together outfit that allows a mother to complete all of her mom duties in style. (You can find another great mom uniform in this post.)

I also plan to style this true to size cardigan with my overalls or with shorts when the weather warms up this spring. It would also be perfect for taking on a trip because you can wear it two different ways on your trip for multiple outfit options. The styling possibilities are endless and I think every woman needs amazing piece in her wardrobe!

Target Finds for Mom and The Girls

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend! My husband and I have decided to start a monthly tradition of a family date to the movies. Last month, we saw The Greatest Showman together and this past weekend we took the girls to the movies again. This time, we saw Peter Rabbit and all four of us loved the movie. Josh and I found ourselves laughing out loud quite a few times! It was a really great movie for the whole family. I would definitely recommend it!

I feel like my Monday posts are just so random lately but I kind of like them that way! I am basically just rounding up what's on my camera roll and things that I shared on my Instagram Stories. Today, I'm sharing a couple Target try ons that I did over the weekend and some recent purchases for my girls. I get a lot of questions about what my girls are wearing when I saw pictures on them on Instagram so I thought it would be fun to share some of the items that I have recently purchased for them.

This top is such a great find for only $15! I tried on the size medium so I would definitely recommend sizing up one size because I found it to run a little bit short on me. This would be so cute paired with boyfriend shorts for summertime!

Online this top says it's "red" but it's definitely more pink in person. The material is so soft and breathable, too. I sized up to a medium for a more relaxed for a longer length to wear with leggings and skinny jeans. I would also wear this under my overalls! It's such a great basic top that can be worn in so many different ways. It also comes in a pretty purple striped option as well!



My daughters are seven and five (26 months apart). I almost always dress them in the exact same outfits or something super similar. When I'm checking out at any store, I either get asked if I have twins or if I'm not sure what size my kid wears because I'm buying multiples of the same items. I dress my girls the same for two reasons: it makes my life so much easier to pick out the same outfit for them and because they are little girls that get jealous if their sister's outfit is "better" than theirs. Little girls are complicated, lol. But on Saturdays, I let them choose their own outfits (within weather constraints) and this is honestly kind of hard for me to let go of control of their outfit because I love dressing them. However, it's fun for them and interesting to see what they come up with. My seven year old chose jogger pants and glitter ankle boots this weekend. I would have never chosen that combo for her but she rocked that look with confidence!

I buy almost all of their clothing at Target and Old Navy because the prices are amazing. I have been buying a few pieces for their spring wardrobe recently. One of the main things I was looking for was a great denim jacket for them to layer over dresses. I found the perfect one at Target:



I also bought them this adorable dress that will look so cute with the denim jacket:



And how are darling are these little shoes?! I had to get the pink ones!:

Currently Loving

style on a budget, currently loving, north carolina blogger, mom style, spring style

Happy Friday! I hope you've had a great week! I'm sincerely looking forward to some fun ad relaxation this weekend. We don't have any big plans and I'm actually pretty excited about a couple of low key days with my family. After the busyness of this week, it's much needed! 

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm currently loving. I am starting to add transitional pieces to my shopping cart that will work now and later when it's officially spring (even though it really felt like spring here the past two days). Which of my picks is your favorite?!

1. Denim Jacket | Every women needs a denim jacket in their closet because they are perfect for springtime (or anytime) layering. I love to wear mine over dresses!


2. Top | I love this ultra feminine top! I own a super similar one in black by this same brand and it's always a go-to of mine. I actually wore it yesterday with skinny jeans and ankle boots. It's definitely one of those fuss free kind of tops that you will reach for over and over.


3. Mules | These mules are very similar to my Madewell ones but this pair is only $25! I always size up a half size in mules for extra length .


4. Lace Trim Tank | This tank is such a cute layering piece that you can wear now and later. I love the adorable lace trim detail!


5. Bag | I have this bag in blush and it also comes in two other pretty colors. I bought it last spring and carried it so much! It's extra roomy, has a convenient crossbody strap, and it's lined with animal print. Sole Society always makes my very favorite bags!



6. Gingham Dress | How darling is this gingham dress?! It's also incredibly budget friendly and a must have for spring! A gingham dress is always a classic and never goes out of style.


7. Bracelet | My best friend sent me a picture of this bracelet earlier this week and immediately added it to my wish list. I love all things Kendra Scott and this color combo is the best!


8. Jeans | I am loving this straight leg pair of jeans and I don't already have anything like them. You can never have too many pairs of jeans, right?!


Thanks so much for visiting! Have a great weekend!
