Pincord and Preppy

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We finished off the girls' spring break by making a Target run so they could get Icees, momma could get a Starbucks, and we could all get out of the house after spending Friday morning deep cleaning the house. I also accomplished quite a few home projects over the weekend, went on a field trip to the zoo for work, and enjoyed time with my family. 

Today, I'm sharing a preppy look featuring these adorable Ella Pincord Shorts from BohoBlu! I'm a Southern girl so I love pops of preppy in my outfits. These pleated pincord shorts are perfectly high waisted and come with a fun tie to complete the preppy look. I'm wearing a size small in these shorts and I typically wear a numeric size 4 in shorts. I styled them with a black tulip tee, denim jacket, neutral sandals, a dainty gold necklace, black tote bag, gold hoop earrings, big sunnies, and a cute beaded bracelet. I think this is the perfect spring weekend look for a farmers' market run or out to brunch with friends! 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day, y'all!

Currently Loving


Happy Friday! I hope you have all had a wonderful week! Last Saturday, I cleaned out a ton of clothes from my closet and sold them at our yard sale. It felt so good to purge out some items that just didn't feel me quite like I wanted them to or just didn't match my current style. So what did I do this week? I did some shopping! I know that kind of defeats the purpose of purging but I carefully selected items that were good quality, reasonable prices, and would remain classics in my closet. I honestly try to avoid buying "trendy" items and if I do, I don't spend a ton of money on them. 

Today, I'm sharing what I am currently loving which includes a couple of my recent purchases. Which of my picks is your favorite?

1. Jelly Sandals | Who else rocked jelly sandals as a kid?! Well, these are the grown up version and equally as cute as the ones we were back in the 90s.

2. Pom Pom Tank | I love basic pieces that are taken up a notch with a fun detail like these adorable pom pom on this tank. So cute.

3. Straw Tote | I love carrying a straw tote as my purse during the spring and summer month. The straw color is a great neutral and goes with any outfit! This one is only $35!

4. Striped Jumpsuit | I have been looking for a cropped leg jumpsuit and I think this is the one! It's super affordable and would look so good with neutral wedges.

5. Linen Shorts | I ordered these shorts yesterday for $11 and I can't wait to get them! The linen fabric and blush color are so perfect for spring.

6. Blush Bag | I have a thing for pink bags and I am loving this one! It can be worn as a shoulder bag or crossbody. 

7. Pendant Necklace | This necklace is at the top of my jewelry wish list. How gorgeous is the stone?! It would add the perfect little pop of color to any outfit.

8. Embroidered Top | I am loving all things embroidered this season. This top is so feminine and pretty! I would style this top with distressed denim shorts and leather sandals.

Floral Kimono

Happy Thursday! I finally got motivated yesterday and got back into the gym after too many days off. My oldest daughter is too old to go to the childcare room so I had to bring her into my workout class. I was prepared with her tablet and other toys to keep her occupied during my 60 minute class. Well, my seven year old had other plans. She grabbed some equipment and did our entire workout routine! I was seriously impressed at how well she did. I wish I had her energy!

Today, I'm styling one of my current favorite outfit combinations: a swing dress and a kimono! I love pairing the shorter dress with the kimono because it provides coverage and modesty while remaining stylish and put together. This Solana floral duster kimono from BohoBlu is so perfect for springtime! I love the gorgeous colors in this floral print and I love how it looks paired with a black dress and neutral accessories like my Arabella mini toteJessamyn bracelet, Gabriella necklace, and Cearah earrings all from BohoBlu! For size reference, I'm wearing a small in the kimono and it fits slightly oversized.

I hope you have a great day! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Instagram Roundup

instagram roundup, spring outfits, style on a budget, how to dress for spring, mom style
Happy Wednesday! I hope you are all having a great week! I have been less than motivated during my mornings this week. I usually am up and out the door with the girls by 7:15am but the girls' spring break this week has definitely slowed me down. I need to get myself in gear and go to the gym! Oh well, sometimes rest and relaxation is just as important as burning calories and checking everything off of my to do list. We just can't get it all done and it's ok (preaching to myself more than anyone else).

Today, I'm sharing a roundup of Instagram pics from last week. I included an adorable picture of my daughters wearing their matching dresses (and the BFF necklaces they purchased together). When I'm shopping for my kids, I almost always just get two of whatever I'm buying. It's so much easier and actually less stressful to dress them alike. Right now, they love it and they look too cute when they are dressed in the same outfit! I have had such good luck finding cute and affordable (I don't spend much on kid clothing since it gets ruined or grown out of so fast) at Old Navy

I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Hair and Beauty Bag

Happy Tuesday! It's time for my bi-monthly round up of my favorite hair and beauty products. Let's start with hair, I go see my stylist, Kahli at Renew to get my hair cut, colored, and styled every eight weeks. I have to get my hair colored on that eight week schedule because I've had some gray hair since I was 18. Not fun and I had even more gray hair this time. I really hope that is not going to be the norm for me! My hair is naturally pretty dark and she does the best job lightening it up for me to get the look I want. She does a shadowed root so that my regrowth looks more natural and she foiled in some highlights to break up the color. I love how my color turned out! My cut is an angled bob (that she just trimmed up because I'm letting my bob grow out) and she curled it with a 1.25 inch curling iron. I wish she could come to my house and style my hair for me every day!

I feel like as the weather changes, my hair, skin, and makeup needs change as well. In my last hair and beauty post, I shared that my skin was super dry. Now that the weather has warmed up my skin isn't as dry anymore plus I changed up my skincare a little this past month. These are my current favorites in my beauty bag:



1. Moisturizer | When I was experiencing super dry skin last month, I picked this up at Marshalls because it sounded like a great product. I have been using it every night for the past four weeks and my skin feel so much better! It's a great moisturizer and a great price.

2. Dry Shampoo | I feel like I have tried all of the dry shampoos and I keep coming back to this one every single time. It's also super affordable!

3. Mascara | I've shared this mascara several times but it is literally the best! I get cheap sometimes and buy other mascaras but I always come back to this one. Worth every penny!

4. Eyeshadow | This is other "splurge" item but it's also worth the money. This palette literally lasts forever and the colors are so gorgeous. I can put this eyeshadow on first thing in the morning and it lasts all day long.

5. Makeup Wipes | I don't know about y'all but when I'm tired at night, the last thing I really want to do is spend a lot of time taking my makeup off. I'm currently using this wipes and loving them! They are great at removing eye makeup.

6. Eyeliner | This is another one of those items that I try others but always come back to this one. It's such a great eyeliner and the price is budget friendly. I always wear the black onyx color.

7. Rose Hip Oil | Now that I'm well into my thirties, skin care is super important to me. This all natural oil is one of my favorite beauty bag items. I use it nightly to help fight fine lines and wrinkles.

8. Hairspray | My stylist introduced me to Kenra and it's definitely one of my all-time favorite hair care lines. This hairspray is the best I've ever used!

I'm also excited to share some other products from LimeLight that I've recently tried and loved! The moisturizer was definitely my favorite product. It hydrated my skin perfectly and smells so good!

Pepped Up Peplum

Hey y'all! I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend with your family! My weekend was super busy, fun, and productive (yard sale, painted the dining room, and spruced up the landscaping). You really can't ask for a better combination! At church, I had the opportunity to sing with an ensemble and our worship team during our three Easter services. I usually serve on the tech team so it was fun being on the other side of the auditorium for a change. 

Today, I'm styling this pepped up peplum from BohoBlu! This Megan top isn't your average peplum because it's pepped up with the prettiest bow detail on the back. I absolutely love the feminine details on this top. I styled it with distressed boyfriend denim, my blush Sophi crossbody bag, pink block heels, a white choker necklace, and pretty pink stud earrings. I love mixing edgier pieces like my jeans with more feminine items like this top and heels. My top also comes in navy and it runs true to size. It's definitely a must-have for spring and summer! 

I hope you all have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
