November Favorite Things

November 14, 2017

So long Halloween, HELLO HOLIDAYS! I love transitioning into November, well minus the early dark nights, but it’s the beginning of the ‘most wonderful time of the year!’ And I’m having all the feels of Christmas already! Working on my Christmas present lists, decorating the house for the holidays, and shopping for the coziest winter sweaters for the cold season upon us! Here are nine needs that are in my shopping cart. Happy shopping!

1 (spoon rest, salt, pepper) // 2 // 3 (brown, leopard) // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9

I’m obsessed with all the Hearth and Hand Magnolia items at Target! Love all the B&W. Fave color combo right now. I want to update some kitchen items to be more neutral and I love the spoon rest and salt and pepper cellars. And the candle smells SOOOO good! All things cedar for the winter!

Can’t get enough pom hats and sweaters! Love the thick chunky cardigan and my favorite color gold sweater. Pair it with a fun purse. B&W goes with everything.

Booties. Could have a million. I’m totally in an animal print phase right now.

Already thinking about 2018! I bought this planner for the new year. I had the same one this year and I LOVE it. It’s modern and has huge blank spaces to write for each day. It fits my needs for a planner PERFECTLY. This floral one was a close second! It’s much more organized and has spots for just about everything you could think of.

I change out doormats every season! Loving this one for the winter.


Fall Twinning // Toddler + Baby

October 29, 2017

I’m so excited about having two girls! I can’t wait to get them twinning more and more. It’s been fun to try to find them matching or similar outfits, especially when we took our fall photos! When I actually get Faye out of zip-up onesie outfits (bc so easy and comfy!), I try to get the two girls dressed alike. Ivy especially loves it! She picks out her outfit and Faye’s and has so much fun with her little sissy. Super cute. Here’s some inspiration for twinning with your girls this fall!

Denim – baby // toddler
Red – baby // toddler
Yellow – toddler // baby
Navy Blue – toddler // baby

Here are some more fall finds for your girls! Love all the fall dresses and skirts out there right now. Because that is ALL IVY WILL WEAR. Sometimes she even tries to put a skirt under her dress… goodness!

Shop Spotlight // FORM Boutique

September 25, 2017

FORM Fitness is one of the hottest gyms in Sioux Falls! Owners Katie Twedt and Kia Weller are SUCH awesome and inspiring women (and Mamas!!!) and they offer a TON of different classes to fit any type of workout you’re looking for at their fitness center. But have you ever really checked out their boutique? I’ve browsed there a few times mostly to look at their workout clothes (#gimmealltheyogapants), but they also have a ton of lifestyle clothes and I’m telling ya, it’s legit fashion in there! I recently did a shoot for them and I was blown away at how many things I loved in their new fall lineup. Tons of cute sweaters, tops, leggings, and of course all the best workout accessories, bags, and clothes! At FORM boutique, you can find an outfit for a date night with your hubs and an outfit to the gym! Perfect combo!

I loved their casual items. The shirts were soooo soft and that green one was such a pretty color! You could totally rock these with jeans (Girlfriend jeans on the left!) or with yoga pants for a more relaxed look.

Jeans from J.Ella Boutique (similar here) // Sneakers

Here were some nicer shirts that we paired with yoga pants. I could totally see that ruffle sleeve top with jeans too. But those deep red/maroon pants were sooooooo comfortable! The outfit on the right is definitely my go to outfit for day to day. Black yoga pants with a longer grey top… yup.

FORM boutique also had some really nice sweaters! The good thick and chunky kind! I really loved the golden brown one, the side detail buttons were a great touch!

LOVE the back detail on this top!!! 

And this cardigan sweater was TO DIE FOR. Soft soft soft.

Shoes from Chelseas’s Boutique // bracelets from FORM

My FAVORITE of all was this crop top sweatshirt, it hit just the top of my high waisted jeans. It was SO soft and it’s my favorite green color. The detail on the sides of the arms was super cool and amped up the shirt a bit from a relaxed look.

Don’t forget a hip new bag to finish the look!

Gah! So many great items! Go check out FORM boutique’s new fall items! So good! And try a class while you’re at it. They have a special for $25 for one week of unlimited classes!

MAMA Style // Maternity Dresses

April 30, 2017

Minus this rain and cold out right now, I’m loving getting out of jeans and into dresses! Maternity jeans are soooo tight right now on this big ole 35 week belly, so I certainly prefer to slip into a dress. I love bodycon dresses! (Here’s one for that I’ve been wearing that’s NOT maternity and only $9.90! Comes in many colors). They’re tight on the bump instead of big and flowy to make you feel even larger than you really are. But I can’t complain about flowy dresses either to hide all the extra weight around the hips and butt! Give me all the maxi dresses for so much comfort! I’ve rounded up my eight favorite maternity dresses out there right now. The denim embroidered one is my FAVORITE!

Top || 1 | 2 | 3 | 4
Bottom || 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

Isn’t the denim one so fabulous?! ASOS is my absolute favorite for maternity clothes, they’re cheap and offer SO many options! Plus buy the $19/year 2 day free shipping, it’s so worth it! Like Amazon Prime!

The teal bodycon dress (#3) is sooo comfortable and it comes in 15 different colors for only $47! I want like 5 of the colors! It’s so comfortable and you can really keep it casual for day or dress it up for night.

Here are some more of my favorite maternity dresses out there!

Friday Finds // 4.14.17

April 14, 2017

Happy Easter Weekend! We have a packed weekend ahead of us. Starting with lunch with Easter bunny tomorrow! I can’t wait to see Ivy and Leo with the bunny and run around chasing some eggs, should be adorable. Let’s hope neither of them are scared by the big bunny! :) Then we get to go to Peppa Live! Ivy just got into the show a couple months ago, and now Leo is walking around saying Peppa too, super cute. Ivy has the cutest Peppa dress to wear to the show. She even had to sleep in it last night when I showed it to her, she’s obsessed! Should be a fun day tomorrow. Ending with EASTER! I’m hosting both sides of our families and am pretty anxious to stuff myself with some delicious food and celebrate after church. Easter eggs are filled and baskets are made, anxious for these two little kids to roam the yard in search for their baskets and eggs! Hope you all have a fabulous weekend! Happy Easter! Here’s some pics from last year, oh Leo so cute!

Loved my table last year! Going to do basically the same again this year! TULIPS, LOVE
