We are loving our time here in New York! We are having the best time hitting all of our favorite spots and making some new baby friendly traditions! I wanted to share with my readers a quick gift guide of things I know my man would love & some things I wouldn’t mind getting 😉 Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching & there’s nothing worse than heading to the mall the night before… Yikes! I hope this is helpful. Thanks so much for reading! xo

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner… 9 days away to be exact! I shared all of my Valentine’s Day looks pretty early, but if you’re anything like me I usually always wait until last minute to find something to wear! I wanted to share a round-up of some of my favorite things I got for Valentine’s Day and date night options, plus some other things that I am LOVING! All of the items are pieces that I plan on wearing a lot of different ways. I especially love the red jumper (seriously SO comfy + flattering) & the purple bodycon. Do you have plans for Valentines Day yet?! I seriously can’t get enough of this holiday and looove spoiling my man, so I will definitely share some gift guides very soon in case you ladies (or guys!) need some ideas!

Truman and I just met up with Sid in New Jersey & are visiting with some of our very best friends this week + visiting New York! Our baby boys met for the first time today and are already the best of friends. I can’t wait to see them play the rest of the week! Follow along on snapchat (destinythompson) and Instagram (@dthompsy) to see what we’re up to! XOXO 



Big Bold Print

DRESS C/O POPPY & DOT | SHOES | WATCH | EARRINGS | RING | LIPSTICK (BARBEQUE- THIS COLOR WAS SPECIAL EDITION BUT LADY DANGER IS VERY SIMILAR! LADY BUG IS ALSO A GOOD OPTION)

I’m always a sucker for dresses especially when they have a big bold print! Of course many are afraid of wearing a big bold print, but honestly I feel as if it’s a major win as long as you style it with simple and neutral accessories and let it be the star of the show. I’m loving on this dress by Poppy & Dot that not only has a beautiful big bold print, but is SO comfy! It’s perfect for church (where you better believe I need comfort while I am basically running laps around the church chasing after Truman) or any special occasion where you want to be comfortable, yet look and feel completely pretty. It’s an all season dress that I thought paired perfect with my nude LULU*S heels! Don’t be surprised if you see me wearing it on repeat.. All. The. Time. Xo

One thing I love about living in Houston is the weather! There are absolutely no winter blues here & the temps have been incredibly mild. Most days Sid drives with the AC on and turns on every fan in the house (we’re definitely not in Michigan or Utah anymore!) I was SO excited to get to wear a sweater & beanie a couple of weeks ago because it was cooler than normal…it got down to the 50’s! I love mixing in a bold pop of color with some neutral colors. This sweater is extremely comfy and comes in a few different colors and the price is too good. I also am OBSESSED with these booties and love that I’ll be able to wear them well into the spring season and beyond. They come in a great choice of colors, amazing! They are super comfortable, fashionable, and add a little height, which helps elongate the legs, which is always always a major bonus in my book. Below are a few other pairs of booties that I am absolutely lusting over at the moment! Xo

Oh hey babes- happy Friday! This week has definitely FLOWN by. I’ve had the best time sharing my Valentine’s Day inspired looks and hope you have enjoyed them! I absolutely love this dress from LULU*S! I think it’s so simple, yet elegant and stunning. I styled it with these gorgeous heels in the perfect neutral shade. Can you believe that this dress + heels together are under $100?! A serious deal! I decided to keep the look super sleek & glam with a tight chignon bun and deep burgundy lip. I also think the clutch adds the perfect amount of sparkle. I absolutely love this look and can’t wait to wear it out on a date with Mr. Thompson! Tru and I are off to spend the morning at the DMV getting my Texas license… Ugh, wish me luck haha! Thank you so much for reading & I hope you have the best, most relaxing weekend~muah! xo

Hi loves! I’m SO happy to be able to share this dress with you today! It’s definitely one of my fav dresses everrrr. I immediately fell in love with the print, but once I tried it on, the fit totally sold me. It’s incredibly flattering. And modest. And just perfect! I tried it on again the night before my shoot and my husband was totally loving it on me, too! He raved about how he thinks it’s so classy + pretty on me and literally had me blushing…so I’m thinking this dress may be the one for our Valentines date! It has the perfect pop of pink and in person the colors are even more vibrant and fun and the fabric is amazingggg. Pair it with my favorite hot pink lipstick (Candy Yum Yum) and a pretty heel, and honey you are set! I hope you all love it too and are having a fantastic week! XO

Happy Monday, loves! Today I’m sharing my FAVORITE comfy Valentine’s Day sweatshirt. These sweaters really are my favorite because of how comfy and soft they are. They are also the cutest and always have such fun designs. I especially love this one! It totally reminds me of John Tucker Must Die & the whipped scene (anyone remember that movie?!). I know I am not afraid to admit I am soooo whipped over my two boys & I aint afraid to show it! 😉 Also, for size reference, I am wearing a size medium- I like mine to fit loose and a bit oversized. Throw it on with black jeans & a heel like I’m wearing, or style it with comfy jeans and a sneaker! I will definitely be wearing it a few different ways throughout this season and beyond! I hope you all have a wonderful Monday! xoxoxo

How does time go by SO quickly?! I swear I was JUST getting my Christmas to-do list written & now Valentine’s Day is quickly creeping up! I am usually so last minute and have to rush to the store to pick up something to wear the night before our big V-day date night, but i decided to make this year different. I wanted to put together looks that could work for many different woman styles- yesterday I posted a more classy and simply elegant dress, but I have some casual cute outfits coming soon, and I feel like this one is a bit more sexy + edgy, yet still staying classy and modest. That is always a major win for me.

I immediately fell in love with this jumpsuit when I saw it, but i didn’t know how flattering it would actually be. Once i put it on, my mind was set & I couldn’t leave the store without it. It’s super flattering and also so comfortable. Besides Valentine’s day, I plan to wear this jumpsuit so many ways throughout the year! It can be dressed down or up, with heels or a peep toe bootie (like I styled it above), and would even look darling with a leather jacket over! Sooo many options. I have a feeling this jumpsuit will sell out quickly because it’s so amazing and guys, the price is GOOD so get it while you can! Literally every person at my shoot asked where I got the jumper and commented how much they loved it. I kept the accessories super simple to not take away from the jumper, but you could vamp it up as much as you please! What do you plan on wearing for Valentine’s day? Are you more of a dress or pants type of girl?! I personally love *any* excuse to dress up! Until next time…Muah! (xoxo).

Hi loves! I’m SO excited about this post because I got to work with some amazing people for these photos, the florals, & the calligraphy! Everything was SO gorgeous and I wish I had half the talent of these ladies (their links are right below the photos!). I have to give a shout out to my amazing + talented friend/ photographer Ailee who put it all together! She always goes above and beyond and I couldn’t love her or her work more. The calligraphy was one of my favorite touches from this day- Meg gave us exactly what we wanted and it turned out SO darling. I can’t for the life of me write anything pretty – I have THE worst handwriting and even made my gf’s in high school write my love notes haha! We just painted a chalkboard wall in Truman’s playroom so I totally need Meg to come and give me a lesson! 😉

Now onto this look- I really feel like I found the PERFECT Valentine’s dress! It’s so classy, sexy, & still modest. I also love that it’s not the typical red or pink dress but still in the Valentine theme. The fit is my absolute favorite and the embellishing on the neckline is to die for. It also has some nice stretch to it making it super comfortable. The color is beautiful and GUYS IT’S ON SALE & going so fast (it already sold out at Nordstrom where I bought it on Monday!) I had to have it! You can find the dress HERE & HERE. Are you all just as excited for Valentine’s Day as I am?! It’s one of my favorite holidays for sure. As always, thanks so much for reading babes! XOXO
