The Last Turtleneck Of The Season

With February coming to an end it’s safe to say this will be the last time I wear a turtleneck until next winter. We very well could have freezing temperatures in March but I am pretty over winter so I’ll just wear a jacket and a scarf if I have to.
This bag is a large one but I love it so much. I got it for Christmas quite a few years ago. My favorite thing about it is that it can be a top handle or a shoulder bag due to the two straps. Smaller cross body bags are having a moment right now, so to be honest I haven’t used this bag in a while. Now that I am a mom, when I don’t want to use my baby bag, I can throw all sorts of things into this bag. 
These shoe details needed there own close up.

The Breakdown:

My shoes are the only new thing I am wearing but I can’t find them online anymore. Farfetch has them in brown so I tagged those below. The rest of my look is older, I have had everything for a while. I based my outfit around these black booties. These boots aren’t high enough for my jeans to be tucked into them so I cuffed my pants a little higher than usual to show some skin. When the weather is cold enough for a turtleneck but not too cold where you need a coat, it’s the perfect winter temp. I chose this big bag because I could load it up with toys, baby food (my little guy is eating solids!), wipes, diapers and other things that moms need to carry 24/7. I feel bad I wasn’t able to tag anything I am wearing but I do really enjoy wearing older clothes. It is silly to only wear something a couple of times.

Embracing The Wind In The Big Apple

A few days ago I was in NYC and the winds were so high, over 40 mph. I was walking to meet my girlfriend and actually had to stop because the wind would blow my legs when I walked and I thought I was going to trip. That my sound dramatic but I’m not exaggerating. I was staying in lower Manhattan, where it’s always a little extra windy, and was walking to the 9/11 Memorial. I highly recommend visiting the 9/11 Memorial and Museum if you are in New York City. 

The Breakdown:

While I was doing touristy things I wore this outfit but I had on these sneakers instead of these black booties. Apparently I like this shoe and sweater combo because I wore it here in this post too. Those sneakers are really comfortable but for the evening I wanted to wear something a little nicer but still easy to walk in so I put on the booties. A hat was a must since it was so windy, my hair would have been everywhere without it and my hair was curly so it would have been a tangled mess as well. I am in love with my new bag and want to wear it all the time. It was a surprise gift from my Mr.! This jacket is from last winter, it is very cute and warm but a little scratchy since its wool, the turtleneck helped with that. The hat and turtleneck really kept me warm against the wind.

Polka Dots for Myles

This blog is titled for Myles because I bought this sweater for him, well, for us. The second I saw it I knew he would love all the colorful dots and I could just picture him trying to grab them all. This sweater would be the perfect thing to wear to entertain while we were out. 

The Breakdown:

Since there was a major drop in temperature I had to had a jacket to my look. I had this sweater picked out first and I was going to wear it with the jeans and a shoe that was going to show more of my foot. After the 30 degree temperature drop I had to wear socks which narrowed my shoe selection. These leopard ones are really comfortable and kept my feet warm. The bold print added a nice surprise but solid tan, gray or black would look good also. This is my first time wearing this jacket this season, I blogged about it last year here. I would have worn it earlier but I finally just found my coats! 5 months later but luckily not too late. They were all in a box in a different closet than the other boxes I have yet to unpack. Anyways, I’d love to hear how you would have styled this sweater, what type of shoes or jacket would you have worn?

Mommy confession...
Gosh, I was so excited to wear this sweater. I wore it last night to the Grizzlies game because Myles and I were going to be there for a few hours and I thought he could use some extra entertainment. Turns out, he didn’t care for it. Lol! I was so disappointed. He started to get fussy and I kept pointing to my little colorful fuzz balls and he gave me nothing haha. Apparently the bright lights, jumbo-tron and people surrounding us, plus a rattle here or there was all he needed. I decided to wear it again to lunch today. I was meeting Lindsey and it was during his nap time so I was prepared for lunch to be a little less than enjoyable. Myles doesn’t like to miss anything and he is quite nosey so I knew he wouldn’t fall asleep during lunch. That’s why I wore this sweater again, thinking he would be tired and restless and I would hold him all of lunch and he would have my sweater to look at. I was wrong again but he was a super good boy, he stayed in his car seat for half the lunch and then in my lap but didn’t fuss at all, he really liked the zipper on my diaper bag! Do you moms dress for your kids? I also know not to wear a necklace or earring that dangle because he will grab them :/

Bluff City Lights x Indigo + Giveaway

Happy love month! Since February seems to be about love, the gals and I of Bluff City Lights decided to wear pinks and reds and all shades in between. We were lucky enough to pair up with Indigo which has loads of options. Indigo has always been one of my favorite stores because I can always find what I am looking for. I also always find something when I’m not looking for it!
I may have said it in last months Bluff City Lights post but I love seeing how everyone styles their look. We all have the same theme or trend and all end up looking totally different and totally chic!
I have never really been that into Valentine’s Day. Don’t get me wrong, I love receiving flowers but I love flowers all the time. I also enjoy spending time with my husband but I like doing that all the time too! Since Valentine’s is a festive holiday you should have fun with it. Whether you put on your fancy dress and head out on a date or wear your heart printed tee and watch a movie at home with your girlfriends. No matter what you decide to do this Valentine’s Indigo will have a look for you! I almost want to go somewhere extra nice so I can wear this gorgeous lace dress they have in store. They also have this extremely soft Chaser t-shirt that would be fun to wear!

Becuase Indigo has so many great options we have decided to give away a $100 gift card

 The Breakdown:
It’s all about the jeans. Honestly, my whole outfit was styled around these jeans. You may think they are your ordinary distressed denim but they actually have patches on them. The fabric patches are an adorable floral print which is where I looked for inspiration to style the rest of my outfit. Since my head is thinking Valentine’s Day I was drawn towards the shades of pink. I was either going to wear a dark pink sweater with blush shoes or a blush sweater and darker shoes. The cutouts in this sweater is a great way to show some skin in the winter while still staying warm. On another day I would wear these jeans with a white tee and an olive green jacket or a black leather jacket, there are really so many options. If you own these Joe’s jeans I would love to see how you styled them so tag me on instagram if you post an  #ootd!
I try to link what I am wearing or find something similar. While I was looking online for this Main Strip sweater I found the perfect look for less, this Forever 21 sweater for under $50!
