Matchy Matchy

Mama Bear:
jacket: Bebe via Nordstrom Rack (similar)  flannel: Old Navy   dress: PinkBlush Maternity  hat: H&M  shoes: Forever 21

Baby Bear: 
Dress: Old Navy  Cardigan: H&M   Tights; H&M   Shoes: Freshly Picked

Yes, I am that mom. The one that wants to match with her daughter. Here's the thing, the more and more that I watch her grow I realize that this just isn't going to be an option soon. My Jocie is the sassiest of sassy girls. Everything I say to her, even if it's offering some seriously coveted Jello is given a NOOOO WAYYYYYY! It's the cutest, and also the worst. Yep that pretty much sums up being a parent. Talk about a friggin' emotional rollercoaster.

I see so much of her in me, sure she looks like her daddy but that little girl is fiery and ornery and stubborn just like her mom. I just get her...I mean that doesn't mean that the stuff she does doesn't completely drive me bonkers, but boy do I get her. So yes matchy matchy for as long as she'll allow BECAUSE I'M YOUR MOM AND I SAID SO DANGIT!!

Sneaking In A Statement

Jacket: The Underground Pearl   T Shirt: Thrifted   Jeans: Mother   shoes: Dolce Vita via Piper and Scoot  scarve: real old
I've been so drawn to more simple classic pieces that I will have forever. So yes, a few of these items are super pricey for me but a classic that you feel comfortable and amazing in is a-ok in my book. But I mean don't expect me to go totally simple on you, I have to sneak a statement piece in somewhere...even if it's just on the back of my jacket:)

Put A Hat On It

 sweater: JCPenney    gingham blouse: Anthropologie   jeans: Mother   shoes: Target   hat: Old Navy  necklace: H&M

Are you guys tired of seeing this hat yet, because I have no control when it comes to wearing it. It makes all of my outfits look more put together and fall-ish so really ya know who cares if I wear this hat every other day. I'm beginning to feel like I need to find another, perhaps gray, perhaps black. My main requirements are; covers up bed head and doesn't look like a gallon hat. I know it's hard to make the cut these days.

How To: Style A Long Tunic

Long tunics are by far one of my favorite things to wear in the fall because you can pair them with leggings and still look put together, it just takes a bit of styling. Here are my top 3 tips for making tunics look effortless and put together (don't worry I won't tell anyone that it feels like you're still in your jam jams).

1. Mix your flowey girly tunic with something edgy. This tunic from PinkBlush (if you are looking for trendy boutiques online you should definitely check them out, they have a killer maternity section and lots of cute dresses for women) has such a flattering underlay of lace, most long tunics are pretty feminine looking, so pairing it with a moto jacket and some edgier boots can give it a bit more interest.

3. When in doubt, throw a vest on it. Fur vest, denim vest, sweater vest, something about the contrast of a shorter vest and a longer tunic helps define your waist and keep you from looking like a hot air balloon.

3. You can totally pull off denim with a long tunic, just make sure they are skinnies. You want to give your body some shape, and the tunic has all the give, so contrast it with some skinny and even cropped jeans. Also, a chunky knit never hurt no one.

If you haven't tried out long tunics for fall give it a go. They are so flattering because of their length and ease and because they cover your bum leggings are totally a go! It's a win win no?

{This post was done in collaboration with PinkBlush, a Women's Online Boutique, they provided tunics for me to style but I am not compensated for these posts. Just so we're clear, I always want to keep it real with you girls. These opinions are all my own and I genuinely LOVE these tunics, especially because they can easily be used as maternity tops.}

Last Day Of Summer

dress: H&M     shoes: Boohoo       flannel: Old Navy       purse: gifted  

It was the last day of summer this week and usually I'm all finished up with summer and ready for fall but man, what is it about this year that has me clinging to every.single.minute. I think some of it has to do with the fact that Jocelyn was so new this time last year and so I really didn't have time to be out and soak up the summer, part of me feels like I missed a half a year of my life just trying to figure out the whole mom thing last year. But this year, man, summer was full of splash pads and scraped knees and frozen Gogurts and hoses. I'm getting all misty eyed just thinking about it. So my solution is dressing like it's summer until mid November. What can I say, I have only the most mature of coping skills.
