Shop Bop Sale Picks // UNDER $100

Hey ladies!!

I had to put this post together for you today because there are SO MANY good picks from the Shop Bop Sale. I wanted to do a little fun challenge for myself on this post, so ALL of my picks are UNDER $100!! I also selected items that have lots of sizes left. There is nothing worse when you go to click on something and it's all sold out. I have two Free People tops that I recently purchased and they made this list as well!
My first Free People top is this cozy sweater, which is now 30% OFF and I have it in red as well. Prefect red for Valentines Day! 
My second Free People top is now 30% OFF as well and comes in a couple other colors. I ADORE this flirty top. You will need a cami under it FYI ;)  Happy shopping ladies!

Sunday Best

Happy Sunday Babes! 
Today I wanted to share some easy and super Mom friendly style. I feel like now a days so many dresses are so short or made for women that don't have a booty! Lets face it designers, MOST women have a BOOTY now a days! HA HA! So please just add a couple more inches for us, it's not asking much. ;)

 When I saw this "Amelia" Dress from LuLaRoe I wasn't sure how it was going to fit or how the quality was going to be. I was surprised that the dress is really light weight! Which is so wonderful for this Arizona heat. I was ready for this fabric to be heavy because it has some light structure on the skirt. I styled this little dress with some of my favorite closet staples. Jean jacket, clutch and some block heel sandals. This dress could easily be dressed up for a date night as well! Personally, I would wear this to Church on Sunday or to helping at my kids school with a flat shoe.
 My FAVORITE part about this dress is............yep you guessed it, the pockets!!! Any dress that has pockets is an insistent yes in my book. They just give the dress so much more personality and plus it's nice to slip your phone in there!
 I have a small obsession with Sole Society. Their shoes and purses are all sooooo good! I scored these sandals on sale for $34! I've been eyeing them for so long and when I saw them go on sale, I couldn't order them fast enough! hehe
I want to thank LuLaRoe Jaymie Moe for sponsoring this post. *All of my opinions are my own*

Western Chic

Ladies I want to apologize for being SO absent from my blog lately. I got hit with a BAD cold for a couple of days and the kids plus the pup is making this Mama's head spin around and around! I'm so happy today is Friday and the weekend is almost here. We are big fans of staying in our PJs and watching movies on the weekends. I'm dreading the summer heat that we get here in AZ. So I love to soak up cuddles on the coach with our blankets while enjoying the chill in the air. 
Bringing you a little Western Chic today ladies. I snagged this oversize leather vest awhile ago from Nordstroms and I LOVE adding it to looks for girls night, date, or shoot even for everyday wear. :) I linked similar vest below for you ;) 
If you follow my Instagram, you will see that I love a good everyday pair of booties! These gorgeous ones are from Jefferey Campbell. 
I hope you dolls have a fabulous weekend and do something fun! I'm busy outfit panning for our trip next weekend. If you ladies are on SnapChat come find me!! I'll be snapping away during our  trip, which I'll share soon :)

A Flowy Little Number // Sale Alerts

Happy Monday pretty ladies!

I hope you had a wonderful relaxing weekend. We were suppose to go play in the snow over the weekend and then my little man wasn't feeling the best on Friday, so we had to cancel our trip. :( This weekend my daughter and I did get to fit in some major girl time which was nice. A little shopping, calorie indulging, and mani pedis! I am really loving this stage more and more. I cannot believe she is going to be 4 in under two months! :( I'm so proud of my kids and how much they have grown up over the past two years. They have adjusted to a lot with the move and my husbands super busy schedule.

Ok on to this fun outfit today....I could go on and on about my babies! :D

JORD watches are wooden based watches with stainless steel links which gives it that unique and stylish feel. My husband selected the CONWAY Series in Walnut & Jet Black.

Closet stables for every Mom or girl

Hi Ladies!
Today I'm sharing what everyone Mom or girl needs to have in her closet. THREE simple staples that are a classic look and a smart buys! I feel like I've really tried to step up my Mom uniform lately because I'm kinda in a rut from my normal go to look. Some of these pieces are budget friendly and some are investments. ;) 
I've been living in these booties since I snagged them from Nordstroms a couple of months ago. Nordstrom's has added a lot more colors now and these black ones are fully stocked! Booties are such fun and chic way to step up a look. I love the little detail on these booties too. :D
 
I will say this over and over again....You need to invest in AT LEAST ONE pair of good jeans! I am guilty of investing in more than one pair but we don't need to go into depth on that! ;) I am sharing my favorite brands to invest in because they work well with my body type! I really suggest going to a store and picking up everything you love (that's in your price point of course) and see what brand fits best with your body type! They need to make you feel good, like you could conquer the world in them! Also factor in a couple other things.

  1. You can dress them up for a night out with your man or the girls
  2. Dress down for more day to day activities
  3. The color of denim isn't "on trend" because you will be investing in something that may not be "on trend" next year! 

The more you wear your favorite pair of jeans the more they will feel like butter on you. I wear the ones pictured ALL the time! They are my favorite pair by far. I've linked some options for you and most of these I own and really love!



WeeStructed has been one of my favorite "Mommy Shops" on Instagram. Her stuff is so cozy and has a message I think every Mother completely agrees with. ;) I love the message of my tee!
I think every Mom/girl needs to own a utility jacket of some short. It's a classic piece to step up your everyday tee and jean look. I've linked a couple options in all price points. I'm sad they no longer make the one pictured above. I wear mine with my lululemon pants sometimes if I'm just running errands. 

Thanks for stopping by ladies! I hope you have a wonderful week. We are prepping to take the kids to see the snow for the first time this weekend and I'm so excited!!

Target Booties UNDER $40

Scored this beauties yesterday on my daily...mean...weekly Target run! ;) I went in for thank you cards and came out with shoes and other goodies I HAD to have! The power over Target came over me, what can I say?! 

I'm sorry I was unable to link this exact pair for you but I'll keep my eye out and link them when they come available online. I was SO excited when I locked eyes with these because they are a total dupe of these  Jeffery Campbell booties I've been wanting so badly!! Those brown booties are a pretty close dupe pair of Kristin Cavallari booties. 



Hope you ladies have a beautiful Tuesday and make sure to go one post back and enter my giveaway!!!!!

Goodbye 2016 and Hello 2017 // GIVEAWAY *WINNER ANNOUNCED* with Weight Training Without Injury!

Happy New Year ladies!!!

With every new year I love to create new goals or sometimes I just tweak the old ones. By doing this it keeps me motivated and helps keep me strong mental and sometimes physically. HA! I am the girl who LOVES to create a killer goal poster. I am a big visual person and I hang it up in my closet so I see it everyday when I get ready in the morning.
I feel like this year my goals are mainly going to be based around getting back into shape (pre babies status) I truly want to be in the best possible shape going into my thirties. My kids are getting out of the tiny stage, they don't nap, and they are constantly on the go! So for me to achieve this goal will be amazing not only on a physical level by a parenting level as well. I will  be able to teach my kids that it's important to take care of your body. It's hard to put yourself first as a parent, especially for me. I feel so guilty taking time out for me because I wanna be Super Mom 24/7. I think I'll throw stop feeling guilty so much on my list as well. ;) 
 I have a major ankle injury and so my workouts are hard to achieve without completely bugging my ankle out. I've tried Spin Class and just a simple fast pace walk around my neighborhood to change up  my workouts but those two things really bug my ankle out. So frustrating because I LOVE to walk and loved to get my sweat on during spin class.
