Currently Loving .152

Happy Friday! I hope you've had a great week! I am oh so happy that it's Friday. Even happier than normal! My husband has been traveling for work since Sunday and I am so glad that he's back. After my first week back at work and parenting solo, I am so ready for some relaxation and fun this weekend! YAY for the weekend! 

Today, I'm sharing my weekly picks for what I'm Currently Loving. I am all about those neutrals and animal print, which is basically all I am wearing lately! So easy to mix and match.

Which of this week's picks is your favorite?!

1. S WE A T E R  D R E S S | I love a sweater dress but I often find them to be a little too fitted for my personal taste. This one is super flattering and forgiving where it needs to be! The fit is true to size and it's a great budget friendly find. A closet staple!


2. P E P L U M  T E E | I have owned this tee for almost two years and I still keep reaching for it! I keep it in my closet year round because it's great on it's own but it's also super cute layered with a moto jacket or cardigan when it's cooler outfit. The fit is generous but I like an oversized fit so I stuck with my regular size. Comes in other colors, too!


3. B RA C E L E T | Pretty much every single day, I have at least five bracelets on my left wrist. I am all about an arm party! I am loving this bracelet and it would be a great addition to my ever growing bracelet collection.


4. S H O E S | I am loving the unique style of these shoes! I actually tried them on in store and was really surprised at how comfortable they are. An affordable find that fits true to size.


5. L E O P A R D  P R I N T  D R E S S | How pretty is this dress?! Y'all know I love some leopard print! I love the colors and pattern on this one. Also, the style is so feminine plus it's budget friendly, which we all love.


6. J A C K E T | This jacket isn't budget friendly but it's definitely on my personal wish list! It looks so cozy and again, I love some leopard print!


7. J E A N S | In the past couple of years, I have changed up my mindset on jeans. I literally wear them almost every single day during the fall and winter. Investing in denim is one of the best investments you can make, especially if you are a jean queen like I am. Twenty dollar jeans do not last and the fit isn't always super flattering. This brand of jeans is the most affordable for this level of quality. Always remember cost per wear when making a denim purchase. I am loving this pair and high rise, straight leg jeans!


8. T E E | This is such a cute, affordable tee for layering. I love the polka dots and these luxe tees are my favorite tee from Old Navy!


Thank you so much for visiting! I hope you have a great weekend!

Instagram Roundup .183

Hey y'all! I hope you're having a great week so far! I thought I was busy before but now that I'm back at work, my days are packed. I haven't been able to keep my eyes open past 9:30! But, I am so super thankful to be back in my normal work routine and teaching. Forever grateful for an awesome place to work and the opportunity to serve my community through The Dream Center! In case you are new around here, I'm a STEM educator at a non-profit, faith based, afterschool program that serves students in grades K-5. My own kiddos get to come there, too!

Today, I'm sharing my weekly Instagram Roundup, including all of my outfits from last week. We are finally feeling some fall temperatures here in North Carolina and I'm so excited for cardigan weather!

A t-shirt dress is a closet staple for me! I sized up one size in this one for a little extra room and length. It comes in other great colors, too!

I bought this top in spring of 2018 and it's still one of my most worn items! The fit is flattering and it's just a really comfy top. It's great for layering!

I posted a poll on my Instagram stories last week to see how we were feeling about tiger print. The results were literally 50/50. Personally, I think it's super fun and a great alternative to the traditional leopard print (which you all know that I love)!

A pink drink and a Target fun are a couple of my favorite things. I have been loving so many of the new fall arrivals at Target!

Pretty flowers and great conversation at The Table last week. It's the perfect spot for food, friends, and of course, flowers!

Neutrals, everyday! My closet is composed of mostly neutral colored pieces and it really makes getting dressed so much faster. Everything mixes and matches with each other.

Hello, cardigan weather! I am loving the cooler temperatures, mostly because I can comfortably wear my new favorite cardigan without sweating to death, lol. This cardigan is under $25 and such great quality for the price! I sized up one size for a more relaxed fit but it does run true to size.



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

Five Favorites .02

mom style, style on a budget, north carolina blogger, five favorites, favorite finds
Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! We squeezed in as much a fun and family time as we possibly could. We had tacos and movie night on Friday. We went to the fall festival on Saturday morning before spending the day in Winston-Salem, including a visit to Trader Joe's and Kaleideum Downtown (children's museum). And Sunday, we went to church, got groceries, and rested! As much as I love fun, busy days, a day at home is equally as nice sometimes, too.

Today, I'm sharing my weekly picks for my five favorites. I started this little series on the blog last week and I'm pretty proud of myself for keeping up with it for a second week in a row! I'd love to know some of your current favorites as well! 

Are you looking for a fun girls night out, place to celebrate your birthday or other special occasion, fun date activity, etc?! Well, Scent Workshop is the place to go if you are local to the Greensboro, North Carolina area. Even if you aren't super close, it's worth the drive! I did an in depth blog post about Scent Workshop here but to summarize: It's a workshop where you explore scents to create your own custom candles and fragrances. So much fun!

I have been a fan of Mrs. Meyer's cleaning products for awhile now. I started with a love of the apple cider scent, which I still love during the fall. During last winter, I loved the peppermint and this spring, peony was my favorite. I noticed the mum scent during one of my most recent Target runs and it's my current favorite! I grabbed the cleaning spray (since it was really the only thing I needed and could justify buying that day) and I love the smell! I clean my counter tops with this daily!


This bag is my most recent addition to my purse collection. As soon as I saw it as a new arrival, I added it to my wish list! I loved my round straw crossbody bag that I carried all spring and summer so I knew this would be a great bag to move into fall and winter. I love the color and the quality is amazing! I have literally carried this bag almost everyday since I got it in the mail. The leather on my Madewell bags just gets better with time!


I was dedicated to a $25 mascara for over a year. I loved how it made my lashes look but it got clumpy after just a few uses. I went on a quest to find a budget friendly mascara that worked just as good and it took me a few tries but I found one! This affordable mascara is less than ten dollars and works just as good (if not better) than my old, expensive favorite! This is a great option if you love length and volume out of your mascara with minimal clumping.


I am a big fan of bubbles! Bubbly drinks (alcoholic or not) are my absolute favorite. I discovered this dry sparkling wine at my favorite local wine and beer place. I get it pretty much every time we go to Lumina! If you're not local, you can also find it at Total Wine. It's so yummy!


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

Currently Loving .151

Happy Friday! I hope you've had a great week! This has been a busy week (full of good things) but I am always looking forward to the weekend. There's nothing like slow mornings with my family to get a relaxing start to the day! Our local fall festival is this weekend and I am so excited that we are also supposed to get some real fall weather to go along with it. Yay!

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm Currently Loving. I also took some time on Monday to figure out how many of these posts I've put together over the years and today's post is my 151st roundup! That's a lot of items that I have been loving! This is my most favorite post of the week to put together. I also love how these posts help me develop my own wish lists!

Which of this week's picks is your favorite?!

1. S W E A T S H I R T | I love cozy sweatshirts for fall and winter, especially when they are leggings friendly. This one comes in other great colors, too!



2. E A R R I N G S | These statement earrings are on my wish list. So cute!



3. T O P | I just ordered this $12 turtleneck in the brown color. I have a similar black one from last winter and I wore it so much, especially for layering under jackets and cardigans. This one fits close to the body so size up one size if you want a little looser fit.



4. B A G | This bag is such a great look for less option and it's so similar to my round crossbody bag from Madewell. This one is $20!



5. B O O T S | I have been on the hunt for the perfect cognac boots and I am really loving this pair! They are budget friendly and I think the heel height it great, too.



6. J E A N S | This style of jeans is my very favorite from Abercrombie! They are a true denim with no stretch but they break in perfectly. I try to wear them as much as possible before wearing them. I read somewhere that you should avoid washing your jeans and you can put them in your freezer to freshen them up. Has anyone tried this before?!



7. D R E S S | Hello, most perfect slip dress ever! This dress is definitely a splurge kind of item but I feel like I could get so much use out of it. Layer a turtleneck underneath, throw on a cardigan, or wear a sweater on top. So many possibilities! I also really love this leopard print!



8. B L A Z E R | I never really considered myself to be a blazer person until a bought one very similar to this one last fall. Now, I love blazers! They are also really versatile pieces that that you can dress up or down depending on the occasion.



Thanks so much for visiting! Have a great weekend!

Happy Wednesday! I hope you're having a great week so far! As I was putting together the first post of Monday's Five Favorites, I got curious about how many of these Instagram Roundup's I have done over the years. Today marks my 182nd Instagram Roundup! I have been doing these pretty much weekly for over three years. I didn't realize that I had done so many!

Leopard and denim... on repeat.

Last week, I got to go to a paint class at The Preppy Possum with my friend, Pam. We had so much fun painting this pretty, floral pumpkin together!

When I can't decide to what to wear, I often just throw on an all black outfit. I love this combination with a pop of leopard on my sandals!

My favorite place for breakfast: The Table Farmhouse Bakery!

When it's still ninety degrees outside... but you still really want to wear a flannel, wear it with shorts!

On Saturday, we had lunch at one of our very favorite places, Cugino Forno. If you're local, you have to try it! They have locations in Greensboro and Winston-Salem.

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