For #MomStyle / At Home with Bailey

 

      Good morning! A big part of my life, that also determines what I wear, are my day-to-day activities with Bailey. I decided it's important to share that influence, and invited Kristen over last weekend to shoot what my morning looks like with Bailey, and on this particular morning, it was making some coffee and getting ready for the day. 

     Bailey's been aware of me drinking coffee since birth. She knows exactly what it is, and is always interested in checking it out whenever I'm pouring a cup. We got her the cutest wooden toy coffee machine a couple of years ago, and she's become our little "barista"!

      Now, onto the dress. I requested it for Christmas last year, and it's my perfect "special occasion" dress. I wanted to showcase it differently this time though. While it might not be what immediately comes to mind when thinking of casual dresses, it has enough boho vibes to be an amazing "no special occasion" dress as well. 

       I love the tassel details on the sleeves, and the beautiful floral pattern on this dress. It makes me feel like Michelle Phillips or Stevie Nicks, which is never a bad thing!

      I paired the dress with my favorite lace up flats to venture outside in. It's been cooling off lately, and we've been soaking up as much outdoors time as we can. 

      These shoes were made for this dress, in my opinion. They aren't available any longer, but I'll share a similar pair below! Thanks for reading, and have a fun Monday!

For #MomStyle / Independence Day

 

      Good morning! Tomorrow is Independence Day, and half the fun of the holiday for me is picking out a slightly themed outfit including at least one of the good ol' red, white, and blue. My first choice this year is this adorable dress from Charlotte Russe! 

      Not only is it the perfect shade of brick red with dainty white flowers, it's in one of the most flattering cuts out there: a wrap dress. You just can't go wrong! 

     A wrap dress cinches at the waist, accentuating the smallest part of the body. I don't think anyone would say they don't want that! 

       For this outfit, I paired it with my favorite purse and trusty tan sandals. Perfectly dressy but casual enough for daytime! 

     I've been wearing this dress non-stop since I got it. It's definitely a staple! What are you all wearing for this festive holiday? Leave a comment below!      

    Thanks for reading, and have a fun Monday! 

To Look Ahead

 

     Hi there! Just wanted to let everyone know that it is officially the start of shopping for fall! With the weather being unbearably hot and humid, I've fallen out of love with summer, and am ready for all things autumn. This, typically, starts with clothes. I've already purchased the long sleeve dress shown above, from Forever 21, and I can't wait to start wearing it with my boots. Bring on the chilly weather please!
