Shoes: Coolway Open To Booties

While I love quality in my clothing for the most part, I have a fair number of pieces from Old Navy as well. Their clothes are trendy and adorable, and if you pick your pieces right, they can stand the test of time. You just need to know what you’re looking for. Over time I’ve found certain materials and styles from Old Navy just aren’t worth my time, while others are great values.

Their clothes for fall are SO good, you guys! From chambray tops that fit so well to fun, long-sleeved dresses, here are my favorite recent finds for fall.

:: My New Mom Style ::

StellaDot_4Today I’m launching the first in a series of posts on my new mom style. I’ve been slowly revising my wardrobe over the past few months to fit my new life as a mom, work-from-home freelancer and recipe developer and manager of a home remodel that’s still very much in progress.

Although I don’t have to report to an office every day, I do like to try and dress up a bit for the days that I’m working. Sometimes I’ll head to a coffee shop, sometimes I stay close to home, other times I’ll camp out at my mom’s house when she’s at work. There’s something about putting on a real outfit, makeup and doing your hair that helps to boost productivity.

One area of my mom-drobe that was seriously lacking? Jewelry. I’ve been putting more thought into my wardrobe without really focusing on accessorizing. Thankfully Kim came to my rescue and offered to style a couple outfits with beautiful jewelry from Stella & Dot.

Have you all heard of Stella & Dot? Their jewelry is beautiful, you guys! Heavy, high quality and durable. And I found the price point great – just nice enough to feel like you’re giving or receiving something speical without breaking the bank.

The earrings I’m wearing are reversible, with pearls on one side and gold studs on the other. And the necklace can be worn two ways as well, which, for a mom on a budget is a huge plus to be able to get two looks from one piece of jewelry. I’ll be doing a giveaway with Kim in the coming weeks, but I would highly suggest you check out the line for yourself in the meantime!

What I’m Loving: Fall Edition

October 1, 2015

1. One Love Organics: Vitamin B Cleansing Oil + Makeup Remover 
This has been my go-to face wash for a while, but I especially love it in the winter when my skin is prone to dryness. It doesn’t

2. Dead Sea Mud Mask by Pure Body Naturals 
This mud mask is gentle on my skin but leaves it feeling smooth, refreshed and clear. I use it about once a week.

3. The Lounge Bralette by Victoria’s Secret
Seriously the most comfortable bra on the face of the planet. I find myself wearing it all the time because it has just the right amount of support but is pretty and comfortable. Win-win!

4. 21 Day Fix At-Home Workouts
I’m not following the eating plan, but lately 30 minutes at home is about all the time I have to workout. My sister-in-law turned me onto these workouts (She’s a Beachbody coach) and I’ve been so impressed. They’re easy, effective and don’t take a ton of time.

5. Booties from 14th and Union – Nordstrom Rack
I have them in the lighter color and am planning on buying them in the black as well. They’re SO super comfortable, and for tall girls like myself, the lack of heel is really nice. I forsee myself wearing them all fall and well into the winter.

6. Trader Joe’s Coconut Body Butter
Seriously the most wonderful, luxurious body butter. It smells SO good, goes on without leaving a greasy residue and makes your skin feel amazing.

7. Frye Paige Tall Riding Boots
Totally a splurge item, but they were a Christmas gift from last year and I couldn’t love them any more. I think I wear my brown boots 5 days out of the week during the colder months, so investing in a great pair just made sense.
