In spite of the fact that I enjoy shopping for myself, I probably buy more things for my daughter than for myself. Isn’t it just so darn cute how little kids fashion is The following are a few different outfits that I chose for different occasions and are always my go-to outfits for B.
A pair of over-the-knee boots is an essential item for your fall and winter wardrobe. These Stuart Weitzman shoes are literally my favorite – I own them in a variety of
I have outlined 3 easy ways you can wear your favorite over-the-knee boots this fall
When worn over denim Over-the-knee boots look great paired with denim, which is a safe bet for pulling off this look. Add a cozy oversized sweater to dress down flat boots for a perfect fall look, or add heeled booties for a more dramatic look.
For shorter hems, follow these steps There’s nothing better than a casual sweater dress or a skirt made out of suede during the Over-the-knee boots look and feel great even in the arctic cold and even provide some warmth – they are just wonderful with shorter hems, saving you from wearing tights or pretending your bare legs aren’t freezing.
Outerwear Of Your Choice Since fall is my favorite time of year to wear clothes, I’m reluctant to take them off when I can finally pull out my favorite layers. You can wear over-the-knee boots with everything from capes and ponchos to trenches and pea coats to make a statement and complete your fall look. Below you will find a few more of my favorite Stuart Weitzman boots. The way you wear them is really important. How do you like to style
It gives me great pleasure to share some of my favorite looks from one of my favorite shops! A feature that I really like about Intermix is the fact that they have a lot of my favorite designers like Self Portrait, IRO, Alexis, and so on, but the pieces they carry are mostly some of the unknown, unique items that aren’t easily found anywhere I think that this Self Portrait top is a perfect example of that! Aren’t you in love with this top? The moment I discovered it was one of those major moments! My fall wardrobe isn’t complete without a few beautiful items that can liven it up. I know you all know I especially love a good neutral piece. The following is a list of 4 ways to stay fresh and interesting with your looks this fall. Dress in layers – Jackets, scarves, and sweaters are a no-brainer but you shouldn’t stop Adding the metallic top under the lace created this unexpected peek-a-boo effect. The layering trend is also making rapid gains this season, whether it is a tee or a blouse, denim trousers or wide-leg trousers under your fall dresses.
Statement pieces – The only difference between a wardrobe of basic pieces and a wardrobe of basic pieces is the You will add interesting details to your look without being overwhelmed by it, so your fall staples can easily balance it out. I’ve always loved ruffles and lace, and I love them even more when they’re paired together, so I knew I had to have this top as soon as I saw Ruffled sleeves are such a pretty detail on this top, and you can wear it with a leather jacket and jeans to liven up the look. In addition, I got this dress from Intermix (they have the best statement pieces!). Every woman should have a statement dress in her closet! This is also one of my favorites.
Despite the fact that I have more neutral clothes than not in my closet, a pop of color is essential for every fall wardrobe! You can opt for monochromatic or stick to the varied shades of the same tones if you want a more sophisticated look. (This is also a great tip for transitioning from pastels to darker colors this fall. These two colors are a feminine and fun palette this season!) And, you can’t go wrong with the traditional colors of fall either. It’s just so amazing how this dress has an off-the-shoulder neckline and I love this flirty print mini dress!
A lace, leather, or velvet design might be used as a texture These are just a few of the things I love The rule of texture is more is always more. Making sure your look is textured is a sure-fire way to stand out.
That was so good! I really like this ankle strap option as well. The next few images are a few of my favorites from Intermix – I love the way they display their goods. You can find so much inspiration in the looks they crafted!
My flight clothes are always up for grabs – you might see me in sneakers and joggers or heels. As long as I’m not running late for the airport (haha), it’s usually the later. A lot of times, if I have work meetings for the day or can’t make it to the hotel to change for the day, it’s the later. I’m very happy to be able to wear jackets and sweaters now that spring has finally sprung. Although the weather has dropped so much here in Utah it really feels like fall, even if it were 85° outside I would still wear them anyway! Thanks to the change of seasons, I’m wearing them again even though it’s 85° outside! A suede moto jacket was one of my favorite purchases of last year, so we had to include it in the From our latest collection, this is one of the best. This sweater is so beautiful and fits so perfectly! That is why it works with jeans and tees for travel styles, as well as a pretty sweater dress or shirt dress for date nights.
He looks so cute in his mini speedo! (it is difficult to tell in the picture, but it is like the last chunk of his baby plumpness. They have so many cute patterns here!) It’s so cute how his little speedo still shows off his cute little thighs! The swimsuit is actually a swim diaper, but I just wore it as a swimsuit instead.
This was the most swimming I’ve done outside of a swimming pool in maybe 5 years! There are no sharks in Greece, so I don’t know what else to do except to swim! that this is so pathetic. However, it was really fun to remember how it was to be a teenager when you did not think twice before you stepped into danger.
Water is their home. The kids could basically live in it! We hear There is always a fight about leaving – and the reasons are Five more minutes!” “Just 5 more minutes!” It’s just a matter of a few more!”
We visited Mykonos this summer as the third stop on our family trip. Before we got there, I didn’t know much about it. The pick was actually Cody’s – I picked Santorini and was sure there was nothing that could beat it, but I fell in love even more with Mykonos! It’s all about the beach for us, and even though Santorini beaches were all rocky, it was great to see Mykonos beaches because the beaches there actually had sand so it made for a fun day at the beach. The best beaches during our trip were Super Paradise and Pink Beach (although Cody still believes the beaches in Hawaii are the best). actually share the same cove, but are regarded as separate beaches because of their different names. Taking a walk along Paraaga Beach was another great experience. The beach was great for massages and the fruit they served was amazing!
Regardless of how much time we spent at the beach or on the deck, sunscreen was a necessity. Take it from me, never skimp on SPF! I wish I had taken better care of my skin when I was younger! This sunscreen stick is a big hit with me (and B, too, he wouldn’t stop using it The portable sunblock is easy to carry (and never makes a mess) and makes applying sunblock to the kids so simple. We can make sure they get full coverage by applying it to their face without worrying about it getting in their eyes. They also don’t get it in their eyes with it on their face. My love for Jessica and the Honest brand is well known to all of you. We’re working on some exciting projects together! Today, I am teaming up with them to give away a sunscreen bundle and 30% off the first month’s essentials bundle with this ERROR
HF30. I seriously cannot believe how cute their diapers are and so many other things we use in our home every day.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Our party mode has kicked into full gear since we returned from California! Our son’s birthday is on Monday, so we’re going to throw a party for his friends on Saturday and a family party on The day and hour until Wes’ party keeps coming up, so he keeps asking when his party is. This was one of my favorite outfits from New York Fashion Week. My discovery of each of these pieces came at a totally different time, but having tried them on made me go OMG. It looks as if Gucci has an amazing new designer and all their pieces are out of this world! There is no doubt a designer piece is an investment, but the attention to detail they put into them makes them so special. The look I envisioned was a mix of grunge and feminine to give it a “tough meets glam” vibe. An appliqued denim jacket contrasts perfectly with the lace detail of this dress. With a pair of leather ankle boots, you can complete the look with a denim jacket, which is a great casual layer for you to transition your favorite fall dresses into the season. This boot has been in my closet ever since I bought it. Since then, I have been wearing them nonstop with everything from dresses to jeans. I definitely splurged on them, but they will continue to make a wardrobe statement for years to come. I’ve put together a list of similar pieces below so you can recreate this look on a budget!
There is no better time of year for fashion than fall! Finding budget buys makes it so easy to refresh my fall wardrobe because I get so excited to try all the latest styles. Ruffles have been on my mind a lot lately and I love the way they’re popping up in this season’s fashions! There is nothing better than an olive green blouse for under $50 (also available in blush) when the ruffle detail makes it seem much more pricey than it actually is. In addition to this nude satin top (under $50), I love this silk shirt in white- such a great neutral! As one of the fall trends I am most excited about, velvet is another great choice. The velvet booties I just got are black and I want them all in different colors. They’re perfect heel height and a steal for Now through Sunday, Nordstrom is offering triple points on select fall pieces for a limited time, so there’s no better time to stock up on your favorite fall pieces. Here are a few of my picks for the moment
My skin care routine gets more and more important as I get older. The beginning of my career would have been better had I My face would have had a few fewer wrinkles, but it’s better to do it In reading this article I was recently informed of all the negative effects your excessive cell phone usage That’s a lot! Although I know I am not the only one, it seems like everything I do is connected to My phone is always with me. I regularly check texts, emails, social media, etc.. Sometimes I honestly feel guilty about it, because I am too attached to my device. In the work world I feel like I am working 24 hours a day, and I have had to set timeframes so I can try to manage my life. Otherwise the day just slips by and I am not even aware of
There are so many of our favorite tech devices that affect our body in negative ways, from our phones to tvs to computers, etc. But, hey, let’s face it, any extreme can be bad for our bodies, so here are a few of my guilty vices and some ways to overcome
Spending a lot of time watching your favorite Your favorite tv show is just one episode away from releasing a new season on Netflix, so it might take a miracle for you to pull yourself away after 30 minutes of sit-down watching. But your metabolism slows by 90% after 30 minutes of sitting. It is natural for your metabolism to slow down as you age, so don’t try to hurry it! You should do some crunches or squats while watching “Next Episode” if you are going to press “Next”.
All day long, you’re glued to your phone Approximately 221 times a day, the average person looks down at their phone. (And I might be twice as many, working from home, and relying on my phone more than anything!) Looking down so much throughout the day can cause tech neck, those annoying lines and wrinkles on the neck, but, since I need my phone so much for work I cannot There are specific products designed just for your neck – the skin on your neck is thinner and has fewer oil glands so it has a higher tendency to age. I always thought you should use any skincare product you apply on your face as well on your neck, but you do not have to. Using this Strivectin neck cream for my neck has increased skin elasticity, which has helped smooth out those annoying horizontal lines in my neck. light and hydrating this product is – my skin felt so much softer, and my wrinkles seemed to have been softened.
An overview of your social media activity each night Counting sheep might seem like fun at night, but it actually has the opposite effect. Playing Candy Crush before bed stimulates your brain, making it harder to fall asleep – have you ever been up until 2 am because your brain won’t slow down to wind down? Dark circles under your eyes and puffy eyes are things you want to avoid if you can kick that habit quickly.
We are all working, we are working, we are working, we are working Even though you’re bound to your desk job or your laptop all day for work, you can’t avoid being hunched over your phone or computer all day!

Why do this before you actually need Do not be afraid to disconnect and take a break from your electronic devices.
Whenever Fashion Week rolls around, it is a whirlwind of events. As busy as last year was, I think this year will be one of the best for me. My usual visit to the beach is for a half-week since I hate being away from my family for longer periods of time. This year I went with the intention of taking it easy, spending more time in the bath, and enjoying sleeping in. No, haha! That didn’t quite happen and don’t get me wrong, I really do love what I do! It was just a crazy couple days for me. It is exciting from a fashion show perspective to see the newest collections, meet designers, and hear about inspiration behind the collection. It is also fun to watch the people-watching on the streets of NYC, where there are I am so inspired after reading this!
There is nothing worse than having a busy work trip! The following are a few things that I find essential in order to survive the rush
Travel pillows that are good. They always tease me about carrying my pillow on the plane with me (don’t forget to bring a clean pillow case Nothing will ruin your trip more quickly than a bad night’s If I don’t have a travel pillow and a window seat, I’m not going to sleep on a red-eye flight to New York Fashion Week. If you don’t plan on a red-eye, you never know when your flight will be delayed, leading to a five-hour layover in place of your 45 minute layover.
This mask is for the face. In addition to a face mask, I always pack a travel sized lotion to help restore my skin The perfect ending to your night leaves you feeling refreshed and confident as you prepare for the rest of the week. This one is my favorite.
Bathing for a long time. I always make sure to take a long hot bath or shower after landing or arriving home at night, no matter what time of day it is. The best way for me to unwind at the end of the day is to sit with my book
Hair products that are right for you. Traveling dehydrates me to the point that my skin, hair, and body are all drier. In order to prevent my ends from looking dry, I always have my Nexxus Promend leave-in split end cream on hand. Be sure to research the climate of the place that you’ll be visiting as well as to pack appropriately! The humidity in New York always makes my hair frizzy so this Nexxus Frizz Defy Finishing Mist saved my hair. The mist also gives your hair a natural hold so that your hair style will hold from the first cup of coffee to the last bite of The dry shampoo is another staple in my bag (this one smells amazing!) Sometimes skipping a hair wash is worth it if you can hit the snooze button a couple times.
The top can be worn in two different If you pack efficiently, you will always bring items that can be used for more than one purpose. You can’t go wrong with this tailored button down, and the scalloped detail takes it to the next level. You can wear it with a blazer and trouser suit for meetings and pair with a wide-leg pant for a date night or networking event.
The shoes you wear for walking. This is an item that even the most formal of business meetings will be suitable for! Putting on a comfortable pair of shoes is a must when going on a business trip. The shoes should say “no nonsense” but should also be able to move easily. stylish boots – they have a low heel which is going to make a big difference when you are on block 5 and they are as put together as they were when you started.
I wish you a very happy Monday. All the best to you all over the long The Halloween collection is about to launch and I am SO EXCITED! I love celebrating Halloween since it feels like a transition into fall and one of my favorites. A new design is always one of the most exciting parts of the process for me. I am so excited to share with you all this ‘Boo’ tee, one of my favorites and a chic way to get ready for the holidays. Our kids’ collection is just as cute too – how cute is B in his matching shirt?! Visit the collection here to see the whole collection.
