Baby Nursery Makeover

I am so excited to share this next room makeover with you! The moment we found out baby #3 was a girl I was immediately inspired to create her nursery!

We moved into our new home when I was about 6 months pregnant and because she slept in our room for the first few months we didn’t rush to finish her room right away. This room was a darker beige color and really was not one of the worst looking rooms in the house.

But, I love gray walls with white trim and my whole house is pretty much painted the same color because you can change out the decor easily in a room anytime you want if the walls are a good neutral color! I knew I wanted to do gray and blush pink in her room. I have always loved blush pink and pairing it with the perfect gray is always so beautiful!

We painted the walls gray and it made such a difference already! The gray was the perfect shade with all that sunlight coming in from that nice big window!Next I went on a search for the perfect curtains! I wanted the color as close to a very blush pink as I could possibly find. I didn’t want pig pink and I certainly didn’t want hot pink. I shopped many stores online trying to find the perfect color, but it can be so hard to trust the color of something online. So I set out on a journey in store and, as usual, started with Target! I should not have been surprised that I found the curtains of my dreams at Target because Target never fails! I have preached this in previous blog posts and I will forever preach it!

What to Wear Wednesday- Grey Bird & Co.

Happy What to Wear Wednesday, my friends! I always love these days because I get to talk all things fashion with you and I also get to share a new fashion find or shop that I have fallen in love with!

Today I am here to tell you all about this sweet online shop called Grey Bird & Co.! I recently learned about this shop and I love that their pieces are unique, handmade in the U.S. and very versatile! Their clothing can be worn casual, dressy and are easy to accessorize and change-up the look!

Grey Bird & Co. was founded by a full-time stay at home mom who was tired of the waste and ethical practices of most fashionable companies! She created this company to serve all women with versatile and ethical clothing for all body types! I love how eco-friendly this company is and I applaud them for donating many of their fabric remnants to non profits, including a charity called Mia’s Mission who turns the fabric remnants into clothing for NICU babies!

Top Tips for Family Photo Outfits

You may not know that along with being a blogger I am also a photographer! I have been doing photography for 10 years now as a hobby and a business!

I often have clients ask me what they should wear for their photos especially for family photos since it includes several people. I was recently talking to a friend about this and I decided I should share my thoughts here with all of you! It can be so hard to come up with the perfect outfits that don’t match too much, but still coordinate well.

We recently did our own family photos, which to be honest with you, I dread having our own family pictures taken. I can give clothing advice all day long to clients, but when it comes to my own family I think too hard about it. Not to mention, kids never nap on the day of pictures? Can you totally relate? It’s like they know and plan it just to make us crazy!

So here are my top tips for planning outfits for family photos and my thought process in choosing our own outfits recently! I wish I could also give you tips on how to handle a child refusing a nap on picture day, but you are on your own on that one! Good Luck!

1/ What do you have at home?

I do not like spending a lot of money on family photo outfits. Especially because I am already paying for the session so by the time I am done with it all I am broke like a joke! So I go through everyone’s closets and figure out what everyone has! For these specific photos I knew my husband had a nicer pair of shorts that were light gray and he had a chambray (denim) short sleeve button up here could wear. So I started working around that. My son already had a nice pair of khaki shorts and my daughter had a nice pair of white capris. I started with those items and then went shopping!

What to Wear Wednesday- The Humble Soles

Calling all little ones with little soles! Have I got some pure cuteness perfectly created for your little feet!

I am a huge fan of supporting small businesses, but I am an even bigger fan when their business supports a good cause! So get ready, my friends, because I am about to introduce to you the sweetest business that is all about adorable product for a great cause!

The Humble Soles is not only a place where you can go and find beautifully created product, but also product created with humble hands. The founders, Gabriel and Ashlyn, met in Nicaragua and after having children of their own found themselves carrying the children of Nicaragua heavy on their hearts. They decided to take a huge step and do more! Children in Nicaragua are continually going without food, unable to get an education and sleeping on dirt floors. The Humble Soles was born and they started creating leather shoes created by the hands of the Nicaragua women with one goal, to help the children of Nicaragua.

What to Wear Wednesday- SwimZip

Happy happy happy What to Wear Wednesday, my friends (posted on a Friday because broken computer chargers delay things sometimes. *sad face*)! I am beyond excited to share all about my new found fashion love this week! Today is all about beaches, summer and sun!

I have a daughter who is almost 7 and it is sad to me that I am already struggling to find a good modest swimsuit for her. I don’t quite understand why such little girls need to wear such skimpy swimsuits. I want a swimsuit for her that is easy for her to have fun and play in! I don’t need my 7 year old worrying about her swimsuit staying on her little body!

Thank the good Lord for SwimZip! I first came across this amazing company on Shark Tank and remember loving their passion for their company! I recently came to find this company again and had to give them a try and I have completely fallen in love with their product and what they stand for!
