Levi's and Fringe + WW Link Up


Sometimes it's the simple outfits that make the best looks.  And when you're able to find a simple top with just the right amount of detail, it will take your outfit up ten notches.  That's exactly how I feel about this fringe hem top.  It's so classic, yet the crochet insert and fringe hem makes it very stylish.  For an easy, no hassle look, I paired it with my Levi's distressed skinny jeans, which happen to be my new obsession.  Not only are Levi's such an American classic, but I'm loving the wash and distressing for summer.  Plus they are a high rise, which you all know is a huge must for me when it comes to jeans (you'd feel the same way after having twins).  I love that this outfit can easily go from daytime errands, with flat or wedges, to drinks with the hubby, by adding heels.  For even more of a statement, I added a pair of fringe earrings.  So easy, yet so fun.

My other new obsession is my Quay sunglasses.  I snagged them during the Shopbop sale, not knowing how popular they are.  I guess the black sold out right after I snagged them, but they are still available here.  I love them so much, I'm thinking of getting them in the pink.  What do you think, pink yay or nay?

Stripe Ruffle Dress


I wasn't kidding when I said my closet was overflowing with blue and white stripe pieces.  I hope you're all not sick of them yet!  Today I'm sharing one of the cutest additions to my wardrobe, which is this striped ruffle dress.  If the blue and white stripes weren't enough, add in dramatic sleeves, a pretty bow, a ruffle hem, and what else could a girl ask for?  Oh yea, how about an awesome price.  This dress is $31, and worth every penny.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter, Passover, and weekend in general.  We spent ours up at the lake, and I used that time to disconnect and enjoy time with my family.  I even logged out of my Instagram account for three days!  To be honest, the main reason for disconnecting was because my Instagram account had been shadowban.  You may have heard that term floating around, as I know it's happening to a lot of bloggers.  Basically Instagram makes it so your posts don't show up under the hashtags that you use, preventing people from finding and engaging on your posts.  Because I always use the same hashtags, they thought my account was "robotic" and decided to penalize me for it.  I heard one way of lifting the ban is by logging out of your account for 48 hours, and I have to admit that it was a nice break.  As much as I love social media, and engaging with everyone on the platform, it sometimes can become overwhelming and quite time consuming.  I think it's important for everyone to take a break from social media and technology, and be present with those around them.  I'm thinking of making disconnecting for a full 48 hours a monthly thing.  What do you think, do you take social media breaks?

You can see some of my other favorite stripe pieces here and here.

Festival Style + WW Link Up


Happy Coachella!  Festival season has officially arrived, and I couldn't be more excited.  No, I am not going Coachella this year, nor do I have any festivals currently lined up, but that doesn't mean that I'm not excited for the fashion, and adding a little boho feel to my look this summer.  In honor of the first weekend of Coachella, I'm sharing a festival style look, along with some festival style finds, which are all currently all on sale.

For my festival look, I decided to pull out an old denim skirt.  Does anyone else love that denim skirts are making a comeback?  I love the way they look paired a flowy top, so I paired mine with my Free People top from thredUP that was featured on the blog last week (here).  I added a faux fur vest for an extra boho feel, although I have to admit it might be a tad hot for the desert, then finished my look with a cross body bag and booties.  Comfortable shoes are must have at festivals, and booties are perfect for protecting your feet in the desert.

Have you all had a chance to shop the Shopbop sale?  If not, you're in luck because the sale has been extended! You have until Sunday night 11:59 PST to get up to 25% off your purchase.  So far I have bought these jeans, these nude sandals, and these sunnies (which sadly have already sold out).  You can view my other sale picks, here, and you can find my festival style picks below.

Mommy and Me Easter Look


With Easter just a few days away, I thought it would be fun to give you a little Easter inspiration, and share what the twins and I will be wearing.  Although Easter is a casual holiday in my family, I do like to look put together.  I love the idea of wearing whites, pastels, and florals for the holiday, so this year I'm going with a little white dress.  This white ruffle hem dress is one that I've had in my closet, and love to pull out from time to time. The long sleeves make it ideal for this transitional spring weather, yet it's the perfect dress to wear on a cool summer night.  Because I know I'll be chasing after the twins all day, I'll be pairing my dress with these stripe wedges.  Not only are they super cute, but the lower wedge makes them extremely comfortable and easy to wear all day.  To match my boys, I will be dressing them in my favorite white button down shirts from the GAP.  I've had these button downs in every size for them since they were three months old.  They are the perfect classic shirt, and my go-to whenever I need the boys to look put together.  For a more laid back look, I'll be finishing their outfit with jeans and sneakers.  I want them to be comfortable since I know they will be running around outside all day, and hunting for Easter eggs, so dressing up their sneakers and jeans is a perfect solution.

I'm excited to be collaborating today with six other mommy bloggers where we are all sharing our mommy and me Easter looks.  Make sure to check out all of the beautiful ladies (below) for Easter outfit inspiration, and visit their blogs for the full looks.   I want to give a special thanks to Ada for putting together this fun collaboration.

Loving these Mommy and Me looks:

"Our church has a special Resurrection service and is hosting a coffee and doughnut fellowship time along with family picture time (photographers will come to the church and photograph families). We will also be attending numerous egg hunts and a few family meals."
"This is our first Easter as a family of four, so I was excited to have two little ones to coordinate this year. We got family pictures taken with my husband's side of the family last weekend, so our outfits did double duty. Everyone wore denim and pastel colors for the pictures, so that worked out pretty perfectly for Easter as well. We are ready to go to Sunrise Easter service at our church, and then head home to see what the Easter Bunny brought!"

"Easter is such a special time. We're so looking forward to fun baskets full of outdoor toys, egg hunts and a fun family BBQ. Most important of all, I love sharing the resurrection story with my boys and spending the morning in church!"
"For Easter Sunday we will be going to church and then Vivian will have an egg hunt in our front yard and later will open her basket of goodies to see what Easter Bunny brought her. We coordinated our pastels together. I am wearing a dove blue+white striped cold-shoulder ruffle dress while she has on a mint sundress and blush pink suede sneakers that match the blush pink dots of her white tights. Happy Easter Ladies!"
"This Easter, Aubrey and I will be wearing everything used!  Missy A is wearing an outfit that was handed down to her by some sweet friends of ours whose daughter is a year older and have been so kind as to pass all her outgrown clothes on to us. She loves these baby doll style of shoes and gets really excited when she gets to wear them. You may recognize the dress I’m wearing from last year’s mommy & me collab! Since this year I have resolved to add nothing new to my closet, I’ll be sporting this casual favorite of mine in a new way as we celebrate the day with family."

"The girls are rocking some one-shoulder seersucker dresses handmade by their grandmother. I'm wearing a coral Altar'd State dress from my closet that works well with the floral colors of their dress. We are really looking forward to spending time with family this Easter. And while we do participate in a few Easter egg hunts, I am trying my best to keep this holiday about Jesus. Happy Easter, everyone!"
