Yellow  + floral screams happy! It’s no secret that I loveeee dresses. They are so fun, femine, & easy! I’m obsessed with this dress from Chic Wish. It’s soo pretty & I couldn’t stop myself from twirling around in it all day long (PLUS it’s under $60!). I also added my J Crew belt & BHLDN shoes from my wedding day- I love being able to reuse those specials pieces! We’re in Dallas and having a blast exploring, relaxing, & eating lots of yummy food. It’s so fun to take mini vacays with my favorite boys & sweet in-laws! I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Be {BONA • FIDE}

  
I’m so excited to share a fun collab with the girls over at BE BONA•FIDE! Being {BONA • FIDE}, real & ME in everything that I do and am is so important. It’s not trying to live a picture perfect life, but loving it for what it truly is + making the best out of it! It is being happy and confident with all that I have been blessed with.

I love Instagram & social media because of all of the amazing people I have met and connected with. I love how friendships that would have never been possible, are created. There is so much greatness that I have seen blossom because of it. However, more and more I have seen the very, very negative side of social media. Too many times I have seen people writing mean and hurtful things while hiding behind a phone or computer screen + saying things they would never (I hope) say in person. These are the people who are merely and truly unhappy with themselves and unconfident. The bullies of social media. Why do some people choose to try and tear one another down in an attempt to try and make themselves feel better? Hurting people will never do good for you or anyone around you. Find the love within yourself and bring happiness and light into your life and share it! Let’s “love one another” no matter what the situation & choose to stop the hate!

Happy Monday, loves! We had such a fun & productive weekend. We got lots of errands done, enjoyed having my in-laws in town, hung out with friends, & even went on our very first date here in Texas without Truman! Although I love bringing my little buddy with me everywhere, it was so nice for just Sid and I to have a night out by ourselves!  We are going to make it happen more often, because I definitely think it is so important to always keep “dating” your spouse ☺️

Anyways, for one of our days out over the weekend, I wore this newfound fav outfit! I love wearing colors and patterns and getting wild with my wardrobe at times, but there is something so gooood about keeping it neutral. I am especially loving this tunic top from LuLu*s! It is the perfect ivory color (but they have another fab color that I just may need to get, as well) and it doesn’t hurt that it is ridiculously comfortable. The fabric is amazing and soo breathable and it even has button tabs on the sleeves to be easily worn at three-quarter length or long , which is perfect for the confused weather lately.  I love that it can be paired with so many different things and colors & is so versatile – something I always look for when buying clothes. This top is definitely a new staple in my wardrobe! Like I said, I love neutral, but I HAD to keep it a tad bit more “Destiny” by throwing on some pink lips for the spring/summer season! Isn’t it amazing how lips can change an entire outfit?! Xoxo

Tie-Dye Maxi

       

DRESS C/O LULU*S | JACKET- SOLD (SIMILAR HERE & HERE) | SHOES | HAND CHAIN C/O LOVE ALWAYS | NECKLACE C/O ALL THE WIREPURSE  

It has been crazy rainy here this week & we were starting to get a little stir crazy being cooped up in the house. When the sun came out, we acted quickly and took advantage of the couple of rain free hours outside. I wore this darling tie-dyed maxi dress and got to use my new purse that Sid & Truman got me for Mother’s Day( I love it SO much, especially the monogram detail 😍). This outfit is so comfy and breathable which is a must on ultra humid days! LULU*S has some really great dresses that I am obsessing over right now!

 My in-laws got into town last night & I love seeing them with baby Tru! Living away from family is probably the hardest thing ever for me.  Family is EVERYTHING to me! It’s so so so nice to have family here visiting & I’m so thankful we both have such loving & supportive families.  I’m excited for this fun week ahead & I’ll be sure to keep ya’ll updated on the gram! Xoxo

Let’s Talk Hair- With NUME

                      

HAIR EXTENSIONS: BOMBSHELL EXTENSIONS | TOOL USED: NUME | TOP | JEANS | WATCH | LIPSTICK (WHIPPED CAVIAR)

One of the questions I get asked most about is how I curl my hair. I am loving the curls I have been getting with my NUME Lustrum Set, so I thought I would share about this awesome tool & how I use it!

1. After getting out of the shower, I usually let my hair air dry.

2. When it’s dry, I brush it out & clip in my extensions.

3. I section my hair (I do about 4 sections) and curl each section.

4. I always wrap my hair around the wand & away from my face, while leaving out about an inch at the end.

5. I also make sure to not curl close to my scalp to avoid super tight curls.

6. After that, I shake out my curls and apply the NUME Argan Oil to achieve shiny, loose curls.

This curling wand is so awesome and I notice that when I use it to curl my hair, my hair keeps the curl so well. This is so helpful because I only wash my hair a couple of times a week and want those gorgeous curls to look great, even on 4 day old hair! I also love the Lustrum Set because of all the different sizes of wands it comes with! The quality of this wand is great and it’s super easy to use. I am very picky when it comes to what tools I use on my hair because I know exactly what I like, but I honestly love this set!

TOP C/O LuLu*s | JEANS | SHOES | DIAPER BAG | SUNGLASSES | WATCH | LIPSTICK (Red Balloon)  HAND CHAIN C/O LOVE ALWAYS | STROLLER C/O STOKKE 

We moved to Houston a few months ago, so on the weekend we always try to go out and explore! There’s nothing I love more than a plain white tee (obsessed with this one from LuLu*s– the best!!), comfy jeans, & cute tennis shoes to run errands in – especially when I know I’ll be out all day. I’m totally loving the fruit trend for this season so I had to have these shoes- PLUS they are under $11! 

Onto Truman’s sweet new ride… We are obsessed! The Stokke Xplory really is amazing. It is so chic! We received sooo many compliments and questions about it while we were out. We love that the storage bag can hold all of our stuff (we have a LOT of stuff 😂) and keep it nice and organized. Another amazing thing about the stroller is how close Truman can be to me. As you can tell he was L O V I N G it! The seat can also be turned to face out, which is awesome. All in all, we absolutely love this stroller! 

Oh Hey, May

It’s May & there’s so many things about that that makes me happy! One of my top favs about May is Cinco De Mayo. My family always throws an awesome party that always includes the most delicious food & a fun time! Last year I was able to be there during this time & it was preggo Heaven 😆😂 I won’t be able to attend this year, but I’m excited to start some new fun traditions with my little family!

On another note, I love this spring flannel from Foi Clothing– it’s lightweight and easy to pair with with shorts or jeans and can even be dressed up with a skirt or slacks! I wore this ensemble out to dinner with my boys the other night and it was a perfect mix of ultra comfy and dressy casual. I can’t wait to style it with some other pieces! Feliz Cinco De Mayo, amigos! Xoxo

TRUMAN’S OUTFIT: SHIRT | SHORTS | MOCCS C/O SWEET N SWAG 

GUYS- Truman is officially walking! It’s kind of hilarious watching such a little, tiny 10 month old human walk around. He’s still pretty clumsy but he’s getting pretty dang good at it… & fast, really fast. I am constantly chasing him around and picking up after him (we call him Tornado Tru because he literally destroys everything 😂). Even though he is a handful, I couldn’t imagine life without him- he’s my little best friend, the pine to my apple! 

As a mom, comfort is huge! There are so many ways to be comfy AND cute. My style doesn’t have to change just because I’m a mom. I am a big believer that when you get ready and put yourself together, you feel good. An outfit as simple as jeans and flip flops can be made so cute, it just depends on how you wear it (confidence is key) and put it together! Xoxo 

Boho Vest

I’m a huge fan of gorgeous details on clothing items, so when I saw this long romantic and unique vest… I had to have it! The crochet bodice, flutter sleeve, & fresh white color are the perfect combo. The vest really does speak for itself. I wanted to keep the rest of the outfit simple, so I paired it with a pair of liquid leggings and an open toe bootie. It’s lightweight, versatile, & I can’t wait to style it with some other looks. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Xoxo
