Pencil Skirt

Lately on Instagram


Fur Pom Poms


This is an outfit I wore to church one Sunday and I took this pic after we got home (hence the wrinkles).  My blouse is from J.Crew but is a couple years old, similar style here, J.Crew skirt, Steve Madden Heels, Necklace


This stuff is AMAZING and I’m obsessed with it!  I have really thin, limp hair and this gives it so much body, I’m in love!  I got this from Amazon.  BTW, the bottle is super lightweight so you’re going to think it’s empty but it’s not and make sure to use it sparingly, you only need a little bit.


I found these cute coral heels at Target!  Can you believe it?  They’re perfect for Spring and when you see the price you pretty much have to get them.


Here’s another Sunday look… Floral Top is from Forever 21, J.Crew Pencil Skirt, LAMB heels, similar here


I made this inspiration board to go above my desk.  It’s not complete but I love how it’s turning out.  I found the pin board on clearance at Hobby Lobby but found a similar one here, the push pins are from Michaels, they’re Kate Spade inspired for a quarter the price, I love Brittany Fuson prints and can’t get enough (the ones I used on the board are from an old planner), fur pom poms,  J.Crew crystal necklace, similar pearl necklace.  I’ll post it when it’s all complete and hanging on my wall.


Another Sunday outfit, everything is older but I’ve linked some similar items… Similar Blouse, Similar Pencil Skirt, Similar Bow Heels, Similar Necklace


Tuesday was International Women’s Day so I posted this picture of my daughter Elle and I.  I’ve been so lucky to have an amazing women as my mother, I’ve always looked up to her and she inspires me to be a better mom everyday.  If Elle and I can have the same relationship my mom and I have I’ll be the happiest momma in the world.  I’m so proud of the girl that Elle is growing up to be, she’s strong, independent, so much fun, and she’s such a sweet and caring young women.  I included this quote from Winnie The Pooh, I love the message it gives. “You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think, and loved more than you’ll ever know.” I hope we can all encourage our daughters to remember to uplift, support, and encourage other girls/women because that’s what makes us stronger and better.
