Rich Blues of Fall

Wednesday, September 28


When visiting some of my favorite brands in NYC I stumbled upon what has now become my 
favorite dress for fall. 
The rich blue tones look great on any skin color and the short sleeve, cold shoulder make it appropriate for even our warm Florida "fall" that we have going on most the time until October. For the ladies that are already getting to enjoy the cooler temps, bringing a black faux leather moto jacket along will be the perfect finishing touch to keep you warm and still edgy! 
For a cozier and softer look,
style with a cardigan that you can tie around your waist when you get too warm. 















The Sound of Silence At Home And On The Go

Tuesday, September 27




White noise has become a pretty constant necessary noise in my house and life. Even so when I am on the go - which has recently been made much easier than the usual of having to download the white noise apps on my phone. We recently discovered the perfect solution - insert SoundBub. Both of my boys have fallen asleep to white noise since they arrived home from the hospital. And, the special hide-away handle makes SoundBub perfectly portable. It can hook onto any stroller or car seat, or even stand on any flat surface.

Also, the SoundBub can be paired with any Bluetooth enabled device to play the music you already love. What is even funnier is when I travel to NYFW and any other blog related trips with my travel blogger girlfriends - one of them HAS to have white noise on at all times when we are sleeping so I am thinking about sending her one too! yes, Lauren I am talking about you ;)

Walker naps at home when we can dedicate to be home for a few hours during the afternoon but that is not always the case and sometimes we are out running errands, out to lunch, and/or picking up Braydon from school. Every mama knows the importance of not letting babe get over tired and making sure nap times are priority - SoundBub lets me do that on the go. 

One last reason we decided to go with this device is because SoundBub is compatible with WavHello’s VoiceShare app, where loved ones can record voice messages, lullabies, or mix/edit their own creations karaoke style. It’s easy to play this special content through SoundBub. This is perfect for family living far away or also for parents who are deployed who want to send messages while they are away - this would have been absolutely perfect when Ryan was active duty!

Neck Ties X Blush

Monday, September 26


Happy Monday babes! It is officially fall but y'all, it was 92 degrees part of the day on Saturday!!! I love the neck tie trend and blush tones of fall so I mixed a little of my favorite things about fall with a practical and cool outfit so I didn't melt in the heat of what still feels like summer! I have been stocking up on all things blush and olive lately with a mix of some wine and nude pieces - to give you an idea of what I will be wearing this fall. And even better - this top is under $10!!! With affordable pieces like this you can stock on on all of your favorite trends as well! I like to mix affordable steals with more expensive splurge items to balance out the price of my outfits! So splurge on those items you can wear multiple times and save on the pieces you may only wear once or twice!
