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!!!!!

Let me introduce you to my newest accessory!!!  My Raymond Weil watch!!  Its just the right size- not too bulky and not too tiny- I love it!!  I feel like its jus the right amount of dressy so I can wear it with casual or dressy outfits, which is great!!  And heres the best part- you can change the bracelet for leather bands!!  Theres all these interchangeable bands in different colors to choose from- some of my favorite are the ballet pink, white, red, burgundy, and navy blue.  I linked some favorites above in the pics you can click on to shop, and also below!!

These booties are probably my favorite purchase from the Anniversary Sale!!  They are so cute n comfy- and the perfect bootie to wear from summer into fall.

And can we talk about this pretty blue tee with ruffled sleeves?!  Love, love!! I have it in grey also because its just so good!! It comes in an olive color too.  This sweater sold out unfortunately- it was gone by the time I got these pictures taken and I went to get the links!!  Hate when that happens… So I linked a couple cardigans that are on sale for ya!!

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…  =)

Anniversary Sale Open To Public!!!

July 22, 2017

Click on the picture to shop!!!



The biggest sale of the year is open to the public!!  The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!!  Nordstrom allows card holders to shop the sale first and its finally time for everybody to shop it!!  So many items have already sold out or low on stock- Im sorry if this is happening to you!!  But dont worry, Ill be keeping you posted on items being restocked!!  Some have already, so if you like something hurry and grab it while you can- you can always return it if you change your mind but I dont want you kicking yourself later!!  Its like Christmas in July- I even know people that buy Christmas gifts from this sale- wrap them up and hide them until Christmas!! Such a great idea!!

Here I am wearing a fun yellow cardigan that just called my name as I passed it! The cardigan comes in several colors and you can’t have too many cards!!  This one is nice and lightweight for that in-between weather.  My top already sold out- bummer- but how cute is the polka dot one or one shoulder gingham top I linked above?!  The sale is the perfect time to buy a realllllly good pair of jeans!!  Jeans that are a little pricey but worth it in my opinion- they will last for years and hold you in all the right places!!  Another favorite find from the sale is these booties! They are so cute and comfortable I think I need them in the beige color too!!  Such good quality at a good price during the sale!!

After scrolling through these pictures you’ll find one more collage- I literally just combed through the sale and found some of my favorites!!!

Ok it is hard to blog during the summer!!  =)  Im not complaining- I am grateful every single day that I get to schedule work around my kids.  I get to be at the pool with them all summer- even though sometimes I think it would be easier to clock out at 5:00 and be done for the day!!  If I had better time-management skills that would help too =)

So about this dress!!  Isn’t it gorge?!  Ive always had a thing for stars… Going way back to high school… Its just dreamy!!  Happy Summer nights to you babes!!!  xoxo
