Muji Monotones

I'm pretty sure I could slip into the Muji pieces below and call it my uniform for winter (except when it's terribly cold and I need something more for my feet). A tunic, leggings, and super comfy sweater are staples for me...what about you?


My Must Have Boot

This fall I decided it was time to look for a new pair boots. Easy, yes? Well, not necessarily. I feel like I always have a long list of things I'm looking for in shoes -- comfort, style, color, ease, longetivity..especially in a cooler weather shoe.

I happened upon this crazy for  you boot by Seychelles and have officially deemed it my must have shoe this fall. I have it in black but am contemplating a purchase in the whiskey color above..

Do you have a favorite boot/shoe? I'd love to hear...

Tiny Metallic Boots

Perfect pair of fall boots from Zara for my new walker. There is not really much to say here except YES. Oh, and do they come in my size?


Leah Goren Headband

Can you pull it off? Love this daisy print twisted headband by Leah Goren.



I don't really have anything to say about this except -- omigod, yes.

Oh, and that apparently I'm into a mustard color lately.


Hers + Mine

As long as she'll let me, I can't resist a little same-sies with my little girl. Rocking Avarcas Pons together would be perfect.


Handmade Swimwear by Mimi Hammer

I was perusing my blog feed recently and stopped in my tracks when I saw these swimsuits over on Olivet. I've never attempted sewing myself a swimsuit but seeing these by Mimi Hammer has got me thinking...ruffles, high-waisted, one-pieces, what more could you ask for?

I ended up going with this suit and this one for my summer swim season but I'm intrigued by the idea of a handmade suit. Anyone every made their own swimsuit?

Lucky Mag + Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer

It's not everyday that I partner up with a company to test out a product, but when Lucky Magazine approached me about trying Vaseline's new Spray & Go Moisturizer I was intrigued. This has long been a pet peeve of mine, the necessary evil of lathering on lotion after my morning shower. Normally, I would hang around in my bathrobe waiting for it to dry -- blah, boring. So I gave this spray moisturizer a shot, and voila, I have new efficient addition to my morning routine! 

I am incredibly grateful that but my hub and I work from home, but it has definitely taken some time to figure out ways to stay productive with an adorable baby eating up our attention. Mornings are essential, if I don't get up and get going, the whole day is messed up. I've long been a believer of deciding what I wear the night before. Even if I'm going super casual (jeans/tshirt),  when I already have it picked out I start my day out so much better. Vaseline's Spray & Go Moisturizer has helped shave off time from my morning routine (hallelujah!) -- now if only I could find a product that would dry and style my hair just as quickly :)

If I were to choose one outfit as part of my daily,  nightime prep for the next day, that I would then wear every day (especially now that I'm a mom)..this would be it...(sorry for that incredible, run on sentence)…
