You guys!!  I feel like you’re going to love this poncho!!  I mean whats not to love?!  Its warm and cozy, its plaid, goes with dresses or jeans and a tee- and it will be the perfect accessory for fall and winter!!  It caught my eye at Nordstrom and I knew it was necessary!!  I couldn’t wait to share it with you all because I think you’ll get so much use out of it!!

The rest of my outfit is also from Nordstrom.  They’re all great basics to add a jacket, cardigan or sweater to so check them all out!!

Lyndi’s Look:

 

 

My little lover boy and I had such a fun “date night” with some other friends and their littles!!!  Its always fun to bring them along!!!  I think Im due for a night out sans kiddos next time though… =)  haha!!  This kid has so much energy, I wish I could bottle it up and take some for me!!

Ive said it before, but thats why I usually dress him in clothes that are easy to move around in.  Some denim or other restrictive clothing drives him a little crayyy-crayyyy and he ends up ripping his clothes off!!  Im serious!!   So I love finding cute sweats and joggers like the ones he’s wearing- which come in grey and black also.  I love the raw edge on his sweatshirt and we put this darling striped button down under it!!  These shoes are so easy because one word- VELCRO!!  I seriously love velcro shoes for him- lifesaver!!  They come in several colors!  On to my outfit- who doesn’t love a good ruffle?!  This top is perfect with jeans or a skirt, its great quality, and its affordable!!  These jeans are one of my 3 top pairs that I pretty much rotate between right now- they’re such a great fit!!  And who doesn’t need a good nude sandal???  The heel on these make it so much easier to walk in.  We got everything were wearing at Nordstrom!!  We love Nordstrom because it has so much good stuff for both of us!!  Win, win!!

Nix’s Look:

 

Out and about with my little lover!!!  He pretty much goes everywhere with me- which has its pros and cons =)   I love my little sidekick!!  Never a dull moment with this one along for the ride!!

Its that time of year where its not hot and not cold yet so were wearing some of our favorite in-between pieces from Nordstrom!!  Nordstrom always has a great selection of boys clothes for Nixon, which I love because then I can grab some stuff for me while Im at it!!  =)   This kid is full of energy- so I usually dress him comfortably- in clothing that gives him a lot of movement!!  I love these mustard joggers and they come in black too!!  This cute striped hoodie he’s wearing comes in green also.  My grey tee with a little puff in the sleeves is so cute- and it comes in a pretty pink color also, I just love all the options!!  Oh and my adorable, affordable red bag comes in mustard also- serious options here with Nordstrom and you’re gonna love it all!!  I never ended up putting this black suede jacket on but check it out, I already know Ill be wearing it out this fall and winter!!

The Prettiest Pale Pink Skirt Ever!!!

September 7, 2017

Click on the picture to shop!!

 

Is this the prettiest skirt or what?!  It was love at first sight =)  Had to have it!!  Its just the right amount of puff to make my inner 8 year-old feel like its my birthday without overdoing it for grown up!! Haha!!  And that blush pink just gets me every time!!  I gave it a little edge by styling it with a T-shirt and distressed denim jacket, but plan on experimenting with all kinds of tops with this beauty!!!

I figured this is exactly what I would be wearing for day 1 of NYFW if was headed out there tomorrow like I had planned…  But Im not going this year!!  Which is a bummer but not really- I love fashion week!!  And I love New York!!  I love the energy of the city, the people, the food, the hustle, I find it so exciting!!  I love the shows, getting inspired from these genius designers- and I love seeing and meeting friends there!!  But with our recent move a month ago- from California to Utah- I feel I need to be with the kiddies.  They need me.  Theres so much change going on and I want to be there every step of the way.  I want to be at baseball games and school pickup, bedtime and in the morning when they wake up!!  Because Ill never get this time back with them and change is hard.  They’re doing so great but I just want to let the dust settle- and then Ill leave them for fashion week in February!!  Or Paris… =)   One day at a time!!

Pink Crossbody Bags For Fall

August 25, 2017

Click on the picture to shop!!

 

I can’t believe its Friday tomorrow!!  This week flew by!!  Which is good- the weekend is always a good thing, right?!  School started, baseball started back up, open house for pre-school, soccer signups… and still trying to settle in our new home!!  Why are there still so boxes to unpack?!  Im so over packing and unpacking! =)

Ok, so on to important things!!  Like this gorgeous velvet crossbody bag in a dusty rose color- I love the way it takes this jeans and tee look up a notch!!  It would be so pretty dressed up too, but its so versatile.  Crossbody bags have a way of pulling an outfit together and completing a look- another great thing about them is they can give a tailored, slimming look with a baggy, loose fitting dress or top!!!  Its the easiest fix for an unflattering fit of a jumpsuit or romper too!!  I picked out a few other pink crossbody bags that Im loving right now and linked them up above in the shopppable pics!!  They’re all from Nordstrom, my go-to for handbags.  They always carry both classic and trendy bags- and in every price range.  My cardigan, jeans, and tee are also from Nordstrom!!  You can shop them up above or here:

Taking Your Summer Look Into Fall

August 22, 2017

Shop by clicking the picture!!

 

There’s always that tricky time inbewtween summer and fall.  Its still warm outside so were not quite ready for fall fashion- but its time to start mixing some fall pieces into your wardrobe.  I usually dont know how to dress at this time of year because its warm when I leave the house but the temps drop while Im out and then Im cold- and I hate being cold!!  Its a tricky time of year for outfit planning!!!

So a light jacket like this denim one Im wearing- or the one I put in the shopping links above-  both from Nordstrom, are perfect to take with you when you run out the door.  You can wear a summer dress or skirt and top like I am here, also from Nordstrom, then add the jacket for a transitional look going into fall- which will also make you feel like you’re getting more use out of your summer clothing!!  I picked out a couple other pairs of shoes from Nordstrom ( such a great selection!)  that are perfect for transitioning into fall with a handbag to match!!  I feel like this always makes an outfit come together.

Thanks for stopping by the blog!!

Back To School With Bloomies!!!

Behind the sunnies my eyes were welling up with tears just taking these pictures!!  My baby is growing up!!  Next week Nix will start preschool and he is excited about meeting new friends- he is such a social little guy!!  He is a little confused about why some of his friends are going to kindergarten and he’s not- he won’t be 5 until the end of October so he won’t start kindergarten until next year.

We went back-to-school shopping online with Bloomingdales and found some great stuff!!  They have the cutest backpacks, which I linked up in the shopping pics at the top of the post!! Nix likes to dress for comfort- he is full of energy and always on the go!!  So I think he doesn’t like to be held back by clothing =)  Which is why we picked this jogger pants and sweatshirt combo!  Its so cute and comfy, won’t show the dirt this kid manages to find everywhere 😉 and I love that they can be worn separately also.  If you’re looking for jeans or polos, and other back-to-school clothing I saw some cute stuff online also!!  And who doesn’t love a little boy ( or girl!!!) in some good ‘ol chucks?!  Converse shoes just never get old- on kids or adults!!  Nix thinks the high-tops make him a superhero hahaha!!  I can’t figure out the connection but I think its adorable =)

Happy back-to-school shopping!!!!!

We are Makin a Move!!!

July 26, 2017

It’s true!!  We are moving!!  Were leaving our beloved hometown of California for Utah… I still haven’t quite wrapped my head around it but we head out today!!  =)  I haven’t been a very good instagrammer lately and now you know why- Ive been packing and getting ready for a major move!!

They say home is where the heart is and its true- Utah is not my home, California is!!  I was born in Orange County, we moved to San Diego when I was 8, and then to Temecula where I went to high school.  My boys were all born in Orange County and know nothing else…

My parents split their time between Temecula and Utah now and my sisters have relocated to Utah.  I have friends here in Orange County that are like family, Im so lucky to have such wonderful people in my life!!  But theres nothing quite like family and seeing your kiddos run around with their cousins!!  I am super close with my sisters and it has been so hard on me to be so far apart- I miss them so much it hurts!!

There was an incredible amount of prayer that went into this decision and ultimately was something I knew without doubt was the right decision for me and my family.  If you’ve been following me for awhile and/or watch my instastories then you know we spend most of our spare time at the beach!!  We are a swimming, surfing, kite-flying, saltwater loving, sunset watching, barefoot, sundress wearing (okay thats just me!! )  kinda fam- so this will be a huge change for us!!  But with change comes growth and I know it will be good for all of us- and we will be back in California often!!

I might be writing a post one day saying I can’t take the cold and Im moving back haha!!  Well see…  =)
