Polished Pink

I recently picked up this beautiful pink lipstick "Blake's Pink" by Loreal.  

If I never mentioned it before Blake Lively is one of my favorite style icons. I love how a lot of her simple styles are always a hit with the fashion community.  Plus on top of it all she is naturally beautiful.

I used the lipstick color for inspiration on the overall look, it is a very bright pink color with some peach like undertones.

The Perfect Traveling Flats

Last week I had the pleasure of meeting up with a couple of girl boss friends, we went to Galveston and ate dinner and walked around a bit afterward.

When we walked around my friend Stacy helped me out with some photos, and I desperately need to find a good photographer because y'all I have been trying to get some photos done at the house and it is not happening.

I found these cute flats at Target when I was doing some shoe shopping and I just had to have them because they would go perfectly with a simple dress, jeans or even shorts. I don't have a ton of black shoes because I got rid of a bunch of things recently and I was in need of something to use on the days that tan/brown wasn't going to work. 

Shoes: Target
Shirt: Target
Distressed Jeans: American Eagle

Most weekends we don't have the pleasure of spending much down time alone together, we are normally catching up with family, or doing all of the things adults have to do. 

On Sunday, we went to eat lunch at Lee's Fried Chicken and Donuts, if you visit definitely try their Bacon, Onion, Jalapeno Marmelade, the Sweet Sriracha Syrup, and the Poblano Sauce.  We will have to visit again ourselves minus J, he was well-behaved it is just entirely too hard to stay clean while eating fried chicken and trying to feed a little one at the same time. 

Then we came home and relaxed.  We let J run wild upstairs (and it literally looks like a tornado hit our upstairs living room and his bedroom) until he literally crawled on both of us and fell asleep.

E took a much needed nap and I tried to nap but as soon as I finally fell asleep his alarm went off making sure we didn't waste our entire day sleeping, but it wouldn't have hurt to sleep a little longer.

Here are a couple of snaps from our day, plus outfit details below.

You guys I am so excited to share this post with y'all today!
  
I finally got myself a remote trigger and have been able to take my own photos.  E is always so busy and I would get so mad that I don't have one of those IG husbands that every one talks about. 

I knew I had to do something because I was ready to take my blog photography to the next level and I kept promising my loyal readers that I would.  So it was definitely time to actually work on it. 

J and I had so much fun - OKAY, I am lying here.

He had fun picking up rocks and running from mom while I tried desperately to get good photos of him.  I just had fun editing these.  

I lucked out by having a big girl camera because of wedding and portrait photography so I have to use it to my advantage.

This is a really old dress that has been hanging in my closet for years, my weight was the worst before J and I wasn't ever able to drop the weight Ill chalk it up to happiness. But this beauty was just hanging in my closet and I am so glad to finally wear it.  

I love to pair things with a simple pump, these are Steve Madden Daisie Classic Pumps and they are one of my favorite pairs of shoes. 

I didn't add any accessories because if you know anything about having a little one less is more.  Your earrings will have to come out, and your necklace will have to come off.

If you do want to pair this with a cute earring I suggest these from Shop Morning Lavender 
If you want a simple make up look like mine, then check out my 7 Product Make Up Look.  It is my normal every day make up with a red lip.

What is that, Velvet?

If you have ever watched "Coming to America" you can appreciate the title of this post, and my humor for that matter 😂. I was raised with boys forgive me.  

I recently saw a blogger post wearing a velvet jumpsuit and I absolutely loved it. I know it isn't really mommy like to wear velvet but we all still get to do date night once in a while right?  And if not you can always spruce up your mommy wardrobe while accessorizing or accentuating with velvet.  

I found a couple of items that I fell in love with to add a little velvet to your life this fall. 

Please for the sake of all things mommy, don't go out wearing all things velvet and then say I told you it would look amazing, that's not what I am saying.

So let me break it down, if you wear velvet pants DO NOT, I repeat do not wear a velvet top.  A basic tee will work, wear leather loafers or pumps and put your hair up in a bun.  Piece velvet items together with none velvet items, the days are over where you should be wearing all velvet. 

A little sometimes can go a long way especially with the velvet trend, that is why I added in the shirt with a velvet pocket and a clutch these are items that will accent your outfit, and keep you on trend while potentially be your statement piece.  

Oh and don't forget you can totally detail your house with velvet items like dining room chairs. My tip would be to only use them at the head and end of the table, all velvet may be a bit much unless you are going for the 70's vibe then it would totally work in your favor.
