The Summer Dress

Sometimes in life you are lucky enough to find an item of clothing you want to wear every day.  Even more rare is when you find one that you want to wear every day and also could wear every night! Ha I have to convince myself not to wear this Summer Dress from Brick + Main 24 hrs a day, every day.  It is amazing!

I love that it is loose and flowy. Never thought I would find something that I’m grateful doesn’t have some kind of structure or shape to help me out, but I’ll take it!

Want to know the best part? It. Has. POCKETS! I’m still not really sure why people are so obsessed with pockets, but I’m just going to jump right on that bandwagon.  Pockets are pretty sweet.  Especially being a mom and having to carry around all those goldfish crackers.  Brick + Main is so wonderful and have offered a discount code for all of you through August 9th! Use “SAVANAH15” to save 15%

Summer flow dress! White light summer and spring style for women and moms. Tie knot dress.

I love to wear the front knotted, but as you can see from the top pic, it’s also great down.  And according to my daughter, “knotted is just super weird.”  I happen to disagree with her, it is actually “just super cute!” It adds a fun touch.  I also wore a cotton slip under my dress because the side slits are a little too high for me.  I guess I could learn to sew and stitch them down a bit buuuuuut…the dusty sewing machine I bought seven years ago and haven’t touched since says I might as well just wear the slip 🙂

Blonde and light brown hair styles for long hair, long loose curls and waves. I paired this dress with some of my favorite jewelry pieces.  Of course, my Arvo watch is always a staple.  I recently received this knotted bangle from Casa de Delia and I’m obsessed.  It is so perfect.  I also got the top necklace(Evil Eye) in my stack from Casa de Delia.  I love how dainty it is and it honestly goes with everything!  The bar and charm necklaces are from my sweet friend at Made by Mary.  They are personalized with initals of my darling family.  I cherish them! View More: http://staycsmartphotography.pass.us/boldbeautifullife

Scalloped Details

There is nothing better than hanging with my girls! I love their cute little personalities and getting to spend every day with them.  I also love wearing things that make it easy to be comfortable to play around with them! Enter, this top!Scalloped top from Brick and Main! Lovely short sleeved shirt with feminine detail!

Nothing beats a top that is functional and darling! Little details really make a big difference in my opinion. The scallops on this top from Brick + Main are my favorite! The sleeves and length are also perfection.  View More: http://staycsmartphotography.pass.us/boldbeautifullife

Little Besties

viv (1 of 1)

One of my motherhood dreams has always been for my kids to be good friends.  It melts my heart to see it happening with these two babes! I worried a little bit when I was pregnant with Viv.  They are five years apart and I thought it might make it hard for them to become good friends, but I was totally wrong! They are the most darling little friends and want to be together all the time.  I love it!

Most days Myla begs to get Viv dressed and pick out her clothes.  I let her for the most part, but sometimes the outfits get a little crazy haha! I love having things like this cute poppy jumper from Little Cottonwood that make it easy and look adorable.  PS it is on sale 😉viv1 (1 of 1)

I tried to play with Viv a bit, but she was NOT having it haha! She just wanted her sister, or to be doing her own thing.  Unless I bribed her with a fruit snack haha.  She still had a bit of a scowl, though.  See pic below 🙂

Flybird Tees on Repeat

An amazing tee is hard to beat!  I have had my eye on a few at Flybird for a long time, and I finally got my hands on this one and this one!  They are just as great as I imagined they would be.  The designs are so unique, and easily dressed  up or down.  I have been wearing mine on repeat since I got them!

Flybird T-shirt! Women's stripped tee with floral sleeves. Comfy casual mom life style!

This “Alive” tee is so soft! It is light and easy to wear.  Not to mention the detail on the sleeve is my favorite!

Switching Things up with Eye Buy Direct

swtiching eye buy direct

I love wearing glasses! However, you may not know that considering I don’t wear them on here that much.  Mostly because I haven’t had fun frames with personality and style!  I decided I wanted to try switching things up with Eye Buy Direct.  I love their clean modern style, and now that I have the Theory frames in Cognac, I may have to try all the styles!

Women's fashion and style. Casual fall outfit with jean jacket. Styling eyeglasses frames too!

I love how changing up something small can alter the whole look!  Since having these frames, I have had a lot of fun creating outfits that coordinate.

Sometimes as a mom, running around crazy most of the time, I need something to switch up the day to day.  I love having the option of wearing glasses vs. contacts now!

Perfect Peplum

I am always on the go, and I prefer to be comfortable (as I have said a hundred times before haha) It is THE BEST to find something that looks great and also feels great!  This perfect peplum top from Hope Ave. is just that for me.  I wear it as often as I can get away with!

hope ave1

I love the loose fit, as well as the ruffle and open back!  It’s all in the details, right?

These black jeans are also pretty amazing.  My dad always made fun of me when I was younger for having tears in my jeans, but I love it haha! He would ask if I got a discount for them already being worn out.  Any of your parents feel that way too?

Perfect Peplum top! White flowy shirt for summer and spring. Mom style, women's fashion.

My perfect peplum, perfectly torn jeans, and perfect black booties are all from Hope Ave.  When I walked into the store, I was honestly like a kid in a candy store.  Or I guess, like myself in a candy store ha! I could have bought everything in there.  I can’t wait to go back!

I finally got some planting done this last week so our house is looking more like a home (or at least like it’s actually occupied haha) I wish yard work was a passion and talent of mine.  Maybe I’ll get there someday!  I hope you had an amazing Mother’s Day weekend, and enjoy your week ahead XO

Thank you to Hope Ave. for working with me on this post.

 

Perfect Peach Dress

Happy Saturday!  We have had an amazing week full of sunshine.  We planned to work on the garden and yard today, but it is pouring outside!  Like run three feet to your car as fast as you can and you still get drenched pouring.  I kind of love it.  I think rain is so beautiful and it is one of my favorite sounds.  It makes it hard to work on the yard, though!

Perfect peach dress. Mid calf t shirt dress :) Women's casual style, mom style for spring and summer!

Let’s flash back to a warmer time when I lived in this dress haha.  I’m so excited to have it for this summer!  I’ve said before that I love to wear dresses, but for the most part once I’m back home I change out of them to something a little more comfortable.  I never do when I wear this one from Jane, though.  Jane is a site that offers clothing, accesories, home decor, etc. at an amazing discount! I love shopping HERE!

This dress is such a fun color for the warmer season that I’m optimistic will be here for good soon!  It is flowy, fun, the perfect length, high neck, I could go on.  One of my favorite parts is that it has short sleeves, but they aren’t cap sleeves.  They are a little longer, which I think is much more comfortable and flattering.

I also found these darling earrings on Jane! I love that they are larger but not heavy.  They are lightweight, which makes it easy to wear them all day!

Dangling lightweight peach earrings from Jane.

I hope you enjoy your weekend and all your dreams come true…AKA you get your to-do lists done! Thanks for reading XO

 

Snowy Getaway with Arvo

IMG_9273

I am so grateful the snow has finally melted and the weather is warming up!  I’m definitely a summer girl.  However, this past weekend we decided to take our girls up to stay in a cabin and enjoy the mounds of snow still found in the mountains. It was so nice!  We had no cell service, or internet connection, so we were truly unplugged.  It felt wonderful to reconnect as a family!  We went sledding for hours, cuddled, and sipped hot cocoa.  Not many things beat that.

IMG_9284

While we were up there I was so grateful to have my Arvo watch, especially since I didn’t have my phone to find out what time it was.  I haven’t worn a watch in years because I am usually so picky about them! I miss wearing one, so I’m happy I have found one I love.  The sleek, minimalistic style is what drew me to this watch.  It goes with just about everything and is comfortable too! Not only that, but the company itself is also incredible.

This scarf is the same one from this post.  I’m totally loving it right now!  Hope you had a wonderful Valentines and Presidents’ Day! Enjoy your week! XO

Stripes and a Scarf

Oh my goodness! I’m so excited that we are starting to get glimpses of spring here.  I crave the warm weather, and I’m usually over winter after only a couple of weeks.  With the weather transitioning, I always find it hard to plan my outfits.  In the morning it still feels like you need a winter coat and by the afternoon you are ready to bust out the flip flops and shorts! The best thing I’ve found to stay comfortable all day is an amazing scarf.  So nice when you are a little chilly, but not uncomfortable as it warms up.  This one from Piper Street is perfection.  So cozy and versatile.  I love it!  It also pairs so well with this striped top.  This top is the softest.  I love how it has a little stretch, but keeps its shape! Sometimes I’m afraid to mix patterns, but it’s fun to coordinate when you put these colors together!

Striped shirt, color splash scarf, jeans, and ankle booties! Women's Fall Fashion!

These jeans and booties are also from Piper Street and I wear them on repeat!  For real, like every day.  I love them both.  Comfortable enough to run errands in, and cute enough for a night out!

Have an amazing Valentine’s weekend! XO

Fishtailing with Penny+Boss

If you know me, you know I love a good braid!  They are always a good idea in any season.  A fishtail is such a classic and a favorite of mine for sure.  Another favorite of mine is Suzy from Penny+Boss! If you haven’t read their blog, you better get over there quick.  You are missing out, they are the cutest.  So! Back to the fishtail…I decided to do this braid on Suzy and I’m going to walk you through it!  You can fishtail by moving the hair over top of the braid, but for this one I chose to move the hair underneath.  It creates a lifted braid (so the braid rests on top of the hair) if that makes sense!

How to Fishtail braid!

Part your hair off to one side, and begin your braid close to your part.  Take a small section and split it into two-A and B.  Take half of A and move it underneath and add it to B.  Then take half of B and move it underneath and add it to A.  Again, take half of A and move it underneath to B.  Now take a small piece of hair(not already in the braid) from that same side and also move that underneath to B.  Then, move half of B under to A.  Grab extra hair(not in the braid) and also move that under to A.  Repeat this a hundred times 🙂 Make sure you are always moving a piece from A to B or vice versa BEFORE you add in hair from the rest of your head.  If you don’t, your braid will be all kinds of crazy.  Keep the braid as tight as you can while braiding.  Braid as far as you like then tie it off.  Gently pull on the sides of the braid to loosen it and make it larger.  Hairspray, and you are done!  I love to wear this with all my hair in the braid, like Suzy is here, but I also love to stop it around my ear and pin it back, leaving the rest of my hair down.
