With starting this fashion blog, I’ve heard a lot of feedback. Some that sounds like, “That won’t look the same on me” or, “I can’t pull that off”. Today I’m getting up close and personal about females and body images. First off, I AM a female. I have a mother, sisters, friends, mother-in-law, sister-in-law,cousins, aunts. I’ve heard every negative thing a woman could say about themselves, not to mention the words that come from my own mouth. We all have things we don’t like about our bodies.

I hope everyone had a great Thankgiving! We celebrated early with my parents so yesterday we celebrated with Joshua’s parents. We ate way too much and Adler experienced his first time on a four wheeler. I’m in trouble because he loved it and is going to be a thrill seeker like his dad. I am most thankful for him this year and experiencing all of his firsts!
As you already know I’m in love with chokers. You can find this one from Target!
My lace pants are from Forever 21. I’ve modified them by adding maroon leggings underneath, because they only have built in shorties and are see through the rest of the way down. I wanted a more modest look.
My top is from Forever 21 as well. It is very soft and comfy! I got it on sale for $9!
Adler’s outfit is all Old Navy. You can find the checked shirt here. I loved the colorblock sweater and plan to match it with lots of different outfits. This is his first pair of skinny pants and they were so cute!
I’m obsessed with this color and gloss from MAC right now! The color is called Stone. I am wearing the liner and lipstick. The gloss is the Arianna Grande edition that they are selling right now. You can also just wear Stone as a matte without the gloss, but sometimes I like to add a little shine.
T.W.O: HALF-UP MESSY BUNS
Sometimes I just like to wear my hair different than all up or all down. That’s why I love half up buns! The best part is you can make them messy because that is the trend. I’ve heard several girls say they don’t look right with this hairstyle, but I believe ANYONE can rock this look. It’s a little different, sure, but wear your half bun with confidence and STOP second guessing. I’m sure mine looks a little weird sometimes, but guess what? I like it and I don’t care. Someone once told me people can only make you feel the way you allow them to. So if you like how something looks on you, it doesn’t matter what other people think. Fashion is a way to express yourself. If feels good to let loose every now and then.
T.H.R.E.E: OVER THE KNEE BOOTS
Suede or leather, over the knee boots are so in right now. I bought these last year and for the life of me cannot remember where the heck I bought them. For that I am sorry, but I can tell you they are not hard to find. I’m dying for a black suede pair (hint to my husband if you’re reading this) :)!
F.O.U.R: OVERSIZED SWEATERS
I’m so happy over-sized sweaters are a thing. They are comfortable, warm, and you have room to grow in them! I think it is perfect Holiday attire, because you can eat all you want and not have to see your fat rolls! This particular one is all over Instagram, so I searched high and low. A lot of places are out. I found this one at a boutique out of New Jersey called Gifted. They were seriously so nice and I received it in less than a week. You should check them out!
F.I.V.E.: LACE UP TOPS
Again, the same oversized sweater, but just wanted to point out the lace ups. This is very “in” right now and I love the look of it. You can find this sweater online at Gifted.
You guyssss! I’m soooo excited to try this cheesecake. I’m not going to lie I was a little intimidated at first because I’ve never made cheesecake before. I’ll be even more honest with you, I wasn’t sure what a springform pan was until yesterday!
I wanted to share the recipe with you in case any of you are last minute bakers like me. If you get started now, you could have it in time for Thanksgiving dinner. It took about 2 1/2 hours to prep and bake and is supposed to chill 5 hours.
Get the full recipe here
Today Adler and I have A LOT to do. We are packing to go home for Thanksgiving, grocery shopping for the food we are cooking, and making a pumpkin cheesecake. It doesn’t sound like a lot, but with a 10 month old, this could take my entire day lol!
Sometimes when I’m running errands I get tired of my typical mom uniform, which consists of exercise pants and a sweatshirt. Soooo, I’m sharing a more casual look that is comfy for doing “mom things” or “wifey” things. Two styles I like right now, are layering shirts, and wearing beanies. My favorite aspect of this outfit is the beanie I found at Target for $8! I hope I’ve inspired you to stay warm, fashionable, and most importantly comfy while doing your Holiday errands!
With Black Friday approaching I know you are all thinking the same thing I am; What should I buy my husband this year? What about the kids, the in-laws, my sister, my grandmother?! It can be so overwhelming to decide sometimes, so I’m putting together some of my favorite things and some of what’s trending for you! Happy shopping and try to survive out there if you are braving the crowds!!
