Happy Wednesday my beautiful friends!
Plaid has always been a print I love to wear, particularly around fall and winter. I have quite a few plaid blanket scarves, but when it comes to clothing, I tend to be a bit pickier. I'm more inclined to go for more colorful plaids when it's in accessories, but I like black and white when it comes to tops and jackets. In addition to black and red. The reason is because it's more versatile, especially when it's in a jacket. You can either create a monochromatic look or add in the color of your choice. When it's in accessories, you're essentially adding the pop into the outfit.

Happy Monday friends!
I hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was pretty relaxed. It was too cold to go to the park, which I've still been trying to go to even though we're pretty much in winter, as far as weather is concerned. As long as it's not below 38°, I try to get Aviah out and and active. Even if we don't make it to the park, I let her play outside with some of the kids in the neighborhood. If we're home all day, she gets very hyper because she's so board. Sounds a little counterintuitive, but that's how toddlers are. If you're also a mom, you know you know this to be true, ha!

Happy Friday friends!
You guys....I have a problem. Well, honestly, I don't know how much of a problem it really is ;)
I'm slightly obsessed with Jeffrey Campbell shoes. Ok, ok. I know it's no real secret that I'm a huge fan of the brand (read here). I recently added yet another pair to my ever growing collection (we're now on #4). When I saw this all black version of the tweed loafers I'd hunted down for nearly two months and there were only two left in my size, I had to get them. I'm keeping myself in check and holding off on these, but man are they gorgeous!

Happy Wednesday, friends!
I've pretty much always been a fan of the denim on denim look. I've styled numerous denim on denim outfits throughout the years here on the blog, but today I'm styling it a bit differently!

Happy Monday and Happy November!
I want to thank you all in advance for bearing with me as I'm still adjusting to life as a mom of two now. It's been very challenging finding the time (and energy, let's be real) to establish a set schedule for posting here and on social. Once I feel like I have a rhythm going, something comes up and I'm back at square one. I'm confident that I'll establish one soon, but for now, I'll post when I can.
Moving right along...

Happy Friday my beautiful friends!
Last weekend, I wore this outfit twice out of the three days. Yes, I loved it that much! Though I did switch it up a bit both times. The first time I wore it to get my hair trimmed with a pair of Adidas that matched the color palette and then Sunday, I wore it as is for a coffee date. I just love the mix of textures here with the cozy waffle knit, coated jeans and the denim boots. This is my second look styling these denim boots. I have a feeling I'll be wearing them quite often this season. When I initially got them, I wasn't sure how often I'd wear them, but knew I had to have them because they're so unique. Fall fashion is all about mixing different patterns and textures to create a cozy, layered look. If you're not one to pattern mix, mixing textures can be just as creative, as it is practical in keeping warm.

Happy Wednesday my sweet friends!
It's been close to a year since I've last shared my skincare routine and it's pretty much changed entirely, with the exception of my face wash. It's the same brand, just a different formula. I have to be honest and say that I was a bit inconsistent with my skincare routine during my last pregnancy because my main symptom was fatigue and I just wasn't in the mood to fuss around with a ton of bottles. When I was pregnant with Aviah, I didn't really experience any skin changes while pregnant, though immediately after she was born, I got a ton of new freckles on my face, which I was fine with. With my Ariah, I noticed that those same freckles darkened and my face looked dull. There was no "pregnancy glow." As I neared my due date, while the 'Sephora Spring Sale' was conveniently going on, I thought it was the perfect time to try some products specifically tailored to brightening the skin, but that were safe and clean to use while pregnant. I didn't experiment too much with anything new, only a handful. I shared a little haul in this post. I guess you can consider this post a somewhat follow-up to that one, since I'll be mentioning my thoughts on some of those products today.

Happy Monday my beautiful friends!
It's no secret that these days, I'm all about simplifying the steps I take in getting myself ready and out the door, since now I have to get three of us ready. I always get ready last because I'm bound to get dirty otherwise. In doing so, I need pieces and methods that help getting dressed quick, while looking stylish and put together, which will make me feel and look more confident. Last week I shared an easy outfit formula I often use for getting ready in the fall. Today, it's all about the shoes and not just any kind of shoes, statement shoes!

We've made it to the end of the week! Do you have any fun weekend plans? Eddie managed to take Saturday off (a very rare occurrence, making them extra special) so we can all head to a fall festival happening around where we live. One of the downsides of giving birth in the summer is that you can miss out on all the fun summer festivals going on, so now that...

Happy Wednesday my beautiful friends!
I have to admit, I never used to be into snakeskin. The only animal print I've ever really worn or gravitate towards was leopard print and maybe an occasional zebra. Since snakeskin is trending pretty hard this season, I've really opened up to it. I especially love those in a grey, brown, and red color palette. The latter being a bit more sexy and great for a bold, night out statement.
