Happy Friday my beautiful friends!
Would you believe that I've owned these pink pants for about 7 years? Though it hasn't been until recently that I've been wanting to wear them more because out of nowhere, I've gotten ideas on how to wear them in ways that allows them to serve as the start of the show, while still looking polished and not uber playful. I think that's what hindered me from wearing them more; I was somewhat intimidated. Yes, me. If you've been following this blog over the past few years, you'd know that I've had a bold and adventurous style, never really steering away from graphics, prints and color. My style has shifted and become more refined as I've gotten older and have had kids, but I still love color.

Happy Wednesday beauties!
So, you all know that I love to see what colors are trending each season because I just simply love color! This year, lavender and pastel purple shades seem to be what's in and understandably so, it's so beautiful and in my opinion, looks great on everyone! I love the idea of wearing these shades during the winter months because they have that winter frosty feel and look great paired with neutrals, such as brown.

Happy New Year my beautiful friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and are off to a great start to 2020! I can't believe we're in the start of a brand new decade as well! My life has changed tremendously over the course of the past ten years (21-31). In fact, my life is anything but what I'd thought it would be, but for the BETTER! Have you ever made goals for what you wanted to achieve in a year or two only to look back and think it didn't necessarily go as planned, but you're glad it played out the way it did?

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.
