Aztec Jacket

This Aztec Jacket is from my latest Pink Lily haul – linked here (wearing a small)! I’ve already raved about how stylish it is. I love the colors and it will go with so many items in your closet! Have to mention the price point because this is a popular style but I haven’t seen it marked as low as $64! I styled it with a white Henley and now a tan bodysuit. The sleeves and fit are also roomy enough to wear over an orange/rust colored turtleneck sweater (at least in my head that’s a cute fit).

I absolutely love styling this western look. With so many statement pieces, I kept the colors (outside of the shacket) pretty muted. This high neck bodysuit is the best material! I love how it’s meant to contour your body. Comes in several different colors and I don’t know why i’m only sitting on this neutral color – NEED MORE (TTS wearing an XS). But as I was saying…The aztec/southwest print is perfect to wear with a wide brimmed hat. Then, as I was grabbing for my neutral Vince Camuto booties, I found my new white western booties (TTS). The gold studs are my favorite detail and they’re a good shade of white. Not stark white, not an off white, just right. If you’re looking to jump on the white western boot trend, check these out.

This weekend we’re heading to a Holiday parade. It’s not baby’s first christmas but it kind of feels like her first all over again now that she’s a little older and will be able to react to the christmas lights 🙂 The temps are dropping in Ohio and we’ve already had our FIRST SNOW. Stay warm! xoxo

Pink Lily Fall Haul & Thanksgiving outfit

Caitlin Covington released her fall launch with Pink Lily – I love her style so I was excited to get affordable pieces from Pink Lily. Everything looks amazing on her but, in the end, I felt like the pieces weren’t that original or unique. I had a few things too similar in my closet already. I really wanted this beautiful camel coat but it was already sold out by the time I made my purchase. Hoping for a restock, but I know how popular it is… I ended up with only one item from her collection. I’ve seen sweater dresses that are similar, but I couldn’t pass up the color… more on that later 🙂

First up is this beautiful black turtleneck knit dress. It was listed as a sweater dress, but it’s very thin in my opinion. I’d consider it a ribbed body con dress. The material is soft and stretchy though, which makes it a perfect contender for Thanksgiving…

I threw on a plaid wrap for a) warmth and b) a fall vibe. Now it looks perfect for turkey day! I’m wearing a small in the dress. The wrap is one size.

Next up is there ever so trending aztec shacket. I’ve seen this same print sold out in so many boutiques. I couldn’t believe it was still in stock at Pink Lily. Especially considering the fit – it’s cropped in the front, longer in the back, and a distressed hem. It comes in two different colors, but this teal and rush is absolutely perfect for fall. Wearing a small.

Unrelated to pink lily but, HOW CUTE ARE THESE WHITE BOOTIES? I was originally grabbing for my neutral booties but saw the white ones still in their box. I love the gold studs. Plus the color is the perfect white – not stark white but not off white either. Western style meets aztec – throw on a wide brimmed hat and this is the most stylish look ever ever.

This is probably my favorite fall look! Each piece is such a staple: the orange turtleneck sweater is a Free People find from Nordstrom sale last year (wearing an XS but wish I ordered a small for length). It works perfectly with this plaid skirt. I ordered a small and was worried about it being too short or tight. There’s no elastic in the waistband but the fit was comfortable. I like the bold color of this sweater but think it would look cute with a neutral shirt, too. Could also switch out the dark brown boots for neutral boots and this same sweater.

Ahhh this rust color dress is everything! This is in the Caitlin Covington collection! I’m wearing a small here and it’s comfortable fit, doesn’t feel too tight or too loose. I posted a pic of off the shoulder but I don’t truly think I could wear it that way because it doesn’t feel secure enough. If the XS were in stock, I would have preferred that size = I thought this wrap dress would be adjustable, but even the tie belt doesn’t have any functionality other than to give you a waist. The material feels really warm and is so soft! There’s an open back so you’ll have to plan undergarments accordingly. The length of the dress is great and I really like it paired with these knee high suede boots.

I also ordered this adorable ball cap that says Pumpkin Spice in a nice cursive font. I love this color for fall! About to grab one of the Starbucks red cups – hellooooo sugar cookie latte! Think this hat will be perfect for some basic errands 😉

Which one is your Thanksgiving vibe? Let me know if the comments below. xoxo

Spice Girl x Baby Spice

Ahhh still over the moon that I got to connect with Dede Raad from Dress Up Buttercup! If you weren’t familiar, check out my last post! The day Olivia took this photoshoot, I spoke to Dede right after. So I’m getting all the mems thanks to these pics.

Okay, in one my previous post, I mentioned heading to a pumpkin patch… We met my mom, grandma, and cousin & her family (who recently moved to OH for her husbands job! It was the first time we were seeing them in over 3 years!). Needless to say, I didn’t get any styled pics while we were there but you can see all of the pumpkins, gourds, and squash we collected! It was so much fun decorating the porch. Olivia loves to re-arrange my pumpkin placements. The larger pumpkins by the door, she is determined to move. She will squat down and grunt trying to lift them. It’s hysterical!

So no pumpkin patch pics, but these sweatshirts are even better! I’m a 90’s kid and The Spice Girls were the first band I ever remember listening to. They were my first concert in the 4th grade (with my mama) and I used to buy every magazine cover they were on, hang their posters on my wall, and learn every lyric from their cassette centerfold 🙂

I originally ordered from Pink Lily but I ended up being refunded for the Spice Girl sweatshirt because they didn’t have enough inventory. They make these sweatshirts in a pink mauve color, also! Last time I checked, the baby spice sweatshirt and onesie were still in stock in orange, but if you want a matching set, all are in stock in mauve. ETA: RUN! The orange Spice Girl shirt is RESTOCKED at PinkLily. All sizes available.

There are actually several versions of this Spice Girl sweatshirt (Etsy, boutiques, etc). I ordered mine from an online boutique. It’s a little darker than the Pink Lily version but it’s so soft and I love the courdoroy texture! I ordered a small and it’s the perfect fit and length with leggings. I think we’re going to wear our matching sweatshirts to an outdoor harvest festival tonight in our town. I just LOVE matching my girl!

Now that I have all of the supplies to make baby’s Halloween costume, I’m going to work on a DIY post this weekend… or a reel or tiktok or whatever the cool kids are doing with their ‘spare’ time! Stay tuned… xoxo

I ordered Olivia a 2T because I wanted her to be able to wear it for a couple seasons! The sweatshirts can still be worn separately, but I’d love to match for as long as possible 🙂

Somehow I also found matching bike shorts and matching white Nike sneaks haha! I’ve had my Nikes for a couple years and love them. They wash really well! The baby shoes are a little more high top than I thought and the tongue rubbed against Olivia’s ankle and cut into her skin a little. Poor girl, she never complained about it but I saw a little red on her shoe and then noticed her ankle. Could be that she’s wearing the wrong size or could be the shoe, idk…

Clearly we used a tripod and self timer to take these photos and Olivia was too amused with the remote clicker than to smile for the camera. This was so fun though! Right after we took these photos, I changed and had the best phone call with Dede from Dress Up Butter Cup. I cannot wait to share more about that… if you follow her, you know her heart and she was just as authentic and genuine in a 35 min phone call. It was like chatting with one of my girlfriends. Stay tuned to hear more….
