Cutout Baseball Tee







Top: c/o PinkBlush, my shoes, Bennett's outfit (on clearance!), Bennett's shoes

It's officially Birthday week for my little man this week and every time I think about it I get teary. This past year has brought on so many changes for us as a family, and although it has been chaotic, it has been the best year of my life so far. I am so thankful to have a healthy baby who brings so much joy to my life every day. 

I love, love looooove this top from PinkBlush. Its made of a soft jersey knit fabric and is the perfect length to wear with skinny jeans or even leggings. The cutout shoulders are my favorite part and make this top a unique version of your typical baseball tee. It comes in blue, mint and coral. I love Pinkblush and have continued to wear their clothes throughout my pregnancy and beyond. They make the best transitional pieces and carry some of the most fantastic maternity clothing out there (makes me want to be pregnant again!)

I saw these Converse wedges while binge watching Fuller House on Netflix. DJ Tanner was wearing them, and I had no idea they made these! I have very athletic legs, so sometimes wearing flat sneakers makes me feel a little heavier than I really am. I love that these have a little hidden wedge inside giving me a little boost, but are also safe to wear while holding baby B.

Sunny Shift


Dress: c/o Nobella Grace, Necklace: Kendra Scott, Shoes:old, Kate Spade

Happy Monday! The weather was absolutely gorgeous this weekend here in Georgia, so we took advantage of it and did as many outdoor activities as we could as a family. Bennett will be a year old next week and its great that we can now do more as a family, but I am definitely sad today as I say goodbye to nursing. I am slowly weaning Bennett and I never thought I would make it this long breastfeeding him. I'm not sad to say goodbye to my breast pump, but I am sad that my sweet baby boy is growing up and becoming more and more independent. 

Anyways, besides all of that, can we talk about this dress? I love yellow and pink together, so it was an easy choice to pair my pink accessories with this adorable Sunny Shift Dress from Nobella Grace Boutique. If you've been following me for a while now, you'll know that Nobella Grace is my all time favorite boutique out there. I love the variety of clothing that they have and seriously, their customer service is unbelievable and so rare to find these days. 

I hope y'all have a fabulous Monday!

What to Wear Postpartum + PinkBlush Giveaway!






Dress: c/o PinkBlush, Shoes: old,  Bennett's outfit, Sunglasses: c/o Ditto,

Hello there! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I have been busy trying to put together a birthday party for my son Bennett, who will be one in another two weeks. I still can't believe he has been in our lives a WHOLE year! I figured since he's almost a year old, its probably time I get back in shape. I wanted to give myself at least a year to get back in shape and with working full-time and pumping four times a day, it has been nearly impossible to get to the gym. Not only is there no time, but when I work all day its hard not to want to spend all of my free time hanging with my sweet boy.

I am still rocking my postpartum bod these days and wanted to tell you about some pieces in my wardrobe that have helped me disguise my "soft" areas over the past year. Early on it was hard to find clothing that was both nursing  friendly and also not too tight in all the wrong areas. I have found that one of the best things you can wear postpartum are pleats. This pleated dress from PinkBlush would be perfect to wear while pregnant, but is also great to wear postpartum. The pleats are really good at camouflaging certain areas.  I love PinkBlush, a Women's Online Boutique.They offer a variety of cure dresses for women and  I feel like all of their items transition so well during a mother's journey. Another pleated item that I wore a TON after I had Bennett was this pleated top

Over the past year I have also been wearing a lot A-line dresses.  This style of dress can help hide the midsection, and if it had buttons for easy access to pumping/nursing it was a bonus! You can see a few that I wore here and here. Also be sure to get any flutter style dresses you can find that drape over the front, like this one.


Another tip I can give you if you're feeling self-conscious about your new hot Mom bod, is to layer with a vest. I wore my military vest so much throughout this past year. Seriously, a military vest can be worn all year long.

So I hope this was a little helpful for all you mamas out there, and definitely be sure to check out my list of Postpartum Undergarments that Every Mom Needs ! I have teamed up with PinkBlush Boutique to give away a $50 shop credit to one of my readers! See rafflecopter below to enter!

Rain or Shine




I have never minded April showers, in fact when I was living in New England, I welcomed them. It always meant that it would rain a ton, and all that rain would wash away the grey, dirty snow and sand left behind from the extra long winters. That also meant that spring was coming and you would start to see things turn green again. Here in Georgia, April showers usually mean washing away all that yellow pollen that has everyone's allergies on fire. So whether its April showers to wash away snow or pollen, I don't mind them at all (and it actually gives me an opportunity to wear all my different colored rainboots!) 

When I saw this top, I thought it would be so cute to wear for the spring. I paired it with my flared jeans to help my legs look a little longer. I have worn this top several times already and even paired them with my jade Hunter boots that I love so much. I can't believe there are only a few weeks left of April already. I am really looking forward to May, because that will mean I have one more month of school left! I can't wait to spend every day with my baby boy. Below I have linked up some of my favorite rain items!

Swing Dress









Dress: c/o Magnolia Boutique, Necklace: Kendra Scott, Shoes: c/o Magnolia Boutique 

 Happy Monday! Its back to the grind today, as I am back to school after having a week off for Spring Break. I really enjoyed being home and getting to spend some time with my baby this week. I am really looking forward to being out for the summer, which is almost here! 

 One of my favorite looks this spring has been a swing dress paired with booties. I love that booties can be worn all year round, especially if they are cutouts or eyelet booties like I am wearing from in these pictures that look so cute with this aqua lace top dress.  

I really like finding new boutiques and I recently discovered Magnolia Boutique and immediately fell in love with so many of their items!

I am obsessed with a bunch of their new spring arrivals, including this darling little Ruffle Romper, this Eyelet Peplum Top and this Lace Printed Shift Dress. The boutique was started by a former Fashion Merchandiser who became a stay at home Mom. She realized that many women (including herself) didn't have time to search the mall for the perfect outfit. Since having Bennett, I can completely relate to this! I couldn't tell you the last time I actually went shopping in a mall! Anyways, be sure to check them out! Have a great week!
