Hello Fall + Cleo Madison Review

Happy October! I am so excited that fall has finally arrived! With the arrival of cooler weather, I have been pulling out my fall wardrobe and I couldn’t be happier! And speaking of clothes, I would like to introduce to you all a clothing company that I just adore. They are called Cleo Madison and they specialize in modest, fashionable clothing. Just my kind store! They offer a variety of modest, stylish items – from t-shirts to dresses. I love how everything is super soft and conservative (without looking like a grandma!). You can definitely find the most perfect “mom-uniform” here. πŸ˜‰

Today, I will be reviewing the Camille Striped Tee. I love navy and stripes because it is something you can wear in the summer or in the fall. The fit of this shirt is amazing! It is loose without it looking like a bag and I love how the sides cut up a bit higher. For a fall look, I paired the shirt with a navy utility vest that is my favorite fall staple. And of course, my favorite combo of white jeans and booties.

 

If you are looking for effortless, stylish, comfy looks this fall – check out Cleo Madison. Join their newsletter and get 10% your first order along with free US shipping! Happy shopping ya’ll!

Mother’s Day Photoshoot

I can’t believe that I am getting ready to celebrate my second Mother’s Day. First, I still sometimes struggle with the idea that I am a mom and second, I can’t believe that my baby is almost two! The years have flown by, especially this year! So for Mother’s Day this year, I wanted a photoshoot with Ada. I know we do a lot of these, but I have been super emotional with Ada’s second birthday approaching. I just can’t believe that Ada will be two in just few short months! Where did my sweet, chubby baby go?! But I am grateful that I have had many photo sessions with Ada. I love looking back on them and remembering what Ada was like at that time.

Special thanks to my sweet, patient husband for taking the time to take these photos. We are the luckiest girls in the world!

Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Mama + Mini Monday: Lace

I am in love with these mama + mini outfits! Both of these lace tops are so beautiful and my red cardigan has been on repeat here lately. And what better way to enjoy a beautiful, windy day; then by dressing up and taking pictures! πŸ˜‰

My top is from AnthroΒ and I love all the beautiful lace details. The top is so feminine and vintage – just my style. My red cardigan is from ChicWish and is the perfect transition piece. It is warm without being too warm, it is super soft, it has pockets, and the tassels add a unique flair – need I say more? πŸ˜‰

Ada’s top is from Crazy8 but I purchased it on Kidizen (have I mentioned how much I love this app?!). Ada’s red hair bow is from Ellia May Designs.

My little girl is getting so big! She is always on the move now and is so close to walking on her own! We are all so excited about it!

I hope you are enjoying your long weekend and all the awesome President’s Day sales going on! Happy Monday ya’ll!

And just so you can see where Ada gets all her funny faces…

Mama + Mini Monday: Blue Romper

It has been crazy hot here the last few days! Being a mountain girl, I do not handle hot, sticky, humid heat, well at all! I get cranky, short tempered, and my hair poofs out like a poodle. I believe Ada handles heat the same way, too. She is very hot natured and sweats easily, so we have been hiding inside these past few days. Our style here lately has been anything that is comfortable and cool – so rompers it is!

I know, I know! I love rompers! What can I say? They are easy, stylish, and fun! This romper I found at Target and I wear it a lot. It is light, comfortable, and it has all my favorite colors, mustard and navy. Oh, and it has pockets, cause you know, pockets! My shoes are another favorite from Seychelles. They are very comfortable and I love that I can wear them now and into fall.

You can tell Ada is thrilled to be outside for these photos. The only good thing about this heat and Ada sweating, are those curls! Are they not the sweetest?! I found her romper at Sam’s Club, of all places. It is from Carter’s and I think I paid $5 for it. It has been a go-to outfit for Ada this summer. I don’t know about you, but every time I see this romper I think fiesta! πŸ™‚

And here is a terrible photo, but I couldn’t resist sharing because of Ada’s face. Haha! I love this silly girl of mine.

I hope you are all staying cool this week! Here’s to praying that fall will come soon! Happy Monday!

Mama + Mini Monday: Grey & Mustard

As you all know, I have an obsession a passion for coordinating mine and Ada’s outfits. It is something I have been dreaming about doing long before Ada came into my life. I guess you can say that I am now living out my dream! I love, love doing it so I thought I would have a spot dedicated for it, here. Welcome to the first Mama + Mini Monday!

Right now, I am loving rompers. I know there are some mix feelings about them, but I can’t get enough of them. Especially, ones like this. I think I like that they make getting ready easy. I don’t have to think about a top and bottom, I just throw this one garment on, pair it with some cute shoes and I am good to go. Anything to save time is a must for this new mama here! πŸ˜‰

Loft is killing it with rompers this summer! I love the lace details of this oneΒ and I will be able to wear it this fall with some booties. Also, it has pockets – need I say more? Ada is wearing a June&January dress, which is amazing! No tags, no weird seams, it is very soft, and it stretches so well. Ada hates putting on clothes, so these stretchy dresses have been great. Plus, have you seen June&January knit tights? They will pair perfectly with this dress in the fall!

I just replaced my mustard heels a few weeks ago, with these from Seychelles. My others were in pretty bad shape. But I love that these heels are made with leather and I love the vintage design.

Hope you are all having a wonderful Monday! Until next time!
