Today’s blog post is about the “slouchy”. The slouchy is The Mint Julep Boutiques amazing sweatshirt. The slouchy is a cute and trendy long sleeve shirt that can be worn in multiple different ways. On top of that it is so incredibly comfortable. When I received the package in the mail I could not wait to wear them! The fabric was cotton and had a perfect fit as soon as I put it on. 

 

The part that I love most about the slouchy is how versatile it is. The wine colored slouchy was perfect for fall photos so I could not wait to dress it up with a hat and heels and take pictures in the leaves. I know it can be really hard to find fashion trends that are comfortable and trending, but that is the best part about this shirt. There are so many ways to style it!

Being a mom of two little girls I am on the go a lot and I am also home a lot. Being comfortable in what I am wearing is very important to me. I wanted to add a real life picture amongst the professional ones to keep things honest and real. Life is not always about dressing up and attending fancy events.  It is about cuddling on the couch and drying crying eyes while drinking all the coffee I can get. I may or may not have worn this pink slouchy all day and all night. It was the perfect comfy top for a tiresome day.

 

The slouchys typically are $48 but with an exclusive offer you can buy them for $24. I have attached all the links for you below. I hope you love them as much as I do!

XOXO,

Brianna

Shein Striped Dress

This is my new current favorite dress! I cannot say enough good things about it. First off the material is sooooo comfortable. You know those amazing high count thread sheets that you love to sleep in? I secretly think this dress is made from those sheets! Ok, maybe not but one can dream. 

This dress was fitted but still had some room for comfort. It also had a little bit of flow to it so I could pair it with a long cardigan. This dress is perfect for all season. I especially love pairing stripes in the fall with a deep mustard color. In the winter I can pair it with some tights and over the knee boots and once the weather warms up a bit in the spring I can wear it by itself. 

The best thing about the dress is that it is currently on sale for $12. Is that not an amazing price for a dress that can carry you through all the seasons? You can never go wrong with a complimentary striped dress with an amazing price. I have linked the site information here. www.shein.com

If you are wondering about the cat, my daughter thought it would be a fun idea if I posed with it. How do you say no to a 5 year old? :)

XOXO,

Brianna

Oliver Bilou

One of the best things about Instagram is coming across new and different accounts. I stumbled upon Oliver Bilou, a handbag website for the sophisticated lady. They feature three different bags and I instantly feel in love with all of them! My bag of choice was the deep blue vegan leather bag called, Amy. Amy is the epitome of a sophisticated handbag with a trendy twist. I love that the bag features tassels on the side. It has just enough fringe detail to make the bag pop. 

Being a busy mom, bags are very important in my day to day routine. I need something that can carry all of my essentials while still leaving room for diapers and wipes for my little one. I am past the stage of diaper bags but still have to carry a few things for my little ones, and this size bag is perfect for just that. It is the perfect size and proportion for any outfit. Not too big and not to small. 

As much as these bags are beautiful what the company stands for serve’s even a better purpose. A portion of the proceeds collected from these bags goes to charities that support children in developing countries. How amazing is that?! We lived in such a blessed country and I love that this company realizes that and is willing to share the love and wealth. Take a minute ti check out their website, and limited collection and handbags.

Coco and Main

Fall season is upon us and that means cozy sweaters and wraps! The bigger the sweater the more comfortable they tend to be. Coco and Main sent this poncho wrap to me and let me tell you, this is by far the highest quality wrap I have ever seen or owned! The material is such great quality and served a purpose of keeping me warm. Have you ever bought a wrap before and it looked beautiful but did not keep you warm on a cool fall night? Unfortunately I have been there!

 

I love the specific design of this wrap, since it has many fall colors weaved throughout. Coco and Main has an amazing sale going on right now where most of their wraps have been clearance down to $25! Keep in mind the quality of clothes is very high. When buying online from a new company that is always the most challenging part, not knowing what you are getting. I 100% put my name behind this company and love their clothes.

RoseWholeSale Laceup Heels

Happy Thursday! One more day until the weekend! I came back home early Wednesday morning (2:30am kind of early) from a week away visiting my family. I loved being able to see my sister and her tribe but it is always so good to come back home. In the words of Dorothy, "there is no place like home!"

I recently partnered with Rose wholesale and they have some of the cutest shoes! These black lace ups were just the shoe I have been looking for. One would think with all the pairs of shoes that I own I would have multiple pairs of black shoes, but I dont! I had my eye on a few different pairs however I wanted a shoe that was a little different, not the usual pair you would find at Target. This style was comfortable, easy to lace up and I was able to wear them for hours without feeling that urge to talk them off and kick it up. The best part?? The shoes are $16. I mean seriously how great is that? Shop the look below and dont forget about the coupon codes! Like the dress? I will have a blog for that very shortly!!

 

XOXO

Mama's Night out

This paisley romper is such a fun outfit! It has all the characteristics you need when looking for something to wear out. It is soft, light, fun design and is COMFORTABLE! I am all about the comfort lately. If I move and the outfit doesnt, I am headng back to my closet to change. I dont have time for a stiff shirt. The only thing that should be stiff is my drink after watching my kids all day. Ok, ok I am kidding. Kinda ..... :)

This gorgeous clutch is from Versona. I purchased it at their boutique located in Baton Rouge. If you think of Louisiana pray for all the families who lost everything in the flooding. It truly is devastating.

These Chinese Laundry booties were such a find. I have been dying to buy the Kristin Cavallari booties (pictured below), however I could not bring myelf to pay $150 for them. This pair I found at Burlingotn Coat Factory for $32! I may have done a little victory dance.

This rose gold bar necklace from Vintage Stamp Jewels is my go to. I wear it with everyting and it matches everythig as well. Plus the owner is so sweet, thats always a plus!

XOXO Brianna

When life throws those lemons.......

Ok lets get honest here. Lately I have been struggling with mommyhood. It is wonderful and special and the fact that I can stay at home (part time) with my girls is such a gift.  However if you have been around the sun a few times you know that some gifts are not always what we expected. That same concept can be applied. I love my girls with every fiber in my body, but there are days, more often than not that the bickering, shouting and plain ole drama become to much to handle. For whatever reason, God desiged my little angels to be passionate, high strung and emotional (I just decsribed all females pretty much) and I am learning daily how to handle that. Now add being a wife, and working, and life and then if time allows, things that I enjoy. It can be a stuggle trying to find the balance. 

Life does not come with a guidline. Oh, I wish it would! No matter how many times I can search google I will never find the perfect answer how to be a mother. It will give me a thousand opinion of others or say I am dying of a rare disease. Google is famous for misdiagnosing if you havent figured that one out yet.

I have noticed  a huge difference however if I have not read my bible.  When I am not reading God's word daily you know what happens? Discontentment sets in. Comparison starts to ransack my brain. Anger invades and makes me quick tempered and all the sudden my responisbilities just became a chore. The joy in raising two healthy beautiful girls has now became a nuisance and by 9am I am ready to go back to bed and bury my head.

The days I read my bible and pray are STILL hard! That part does not change, but what changes is my hearts attitude. I have strength to get through the day. I find more joy in the mundane and my complaints start to subside because I have allowed Gods word to sink into my heart and move me. This Christian life I walk is not easy, but Gods grace guides me and directs me to make better choices and live a life that is focused more on others and less on my own selfishness. To any moms, or any one else I hope I can encourage you today! Find joy in what you are called to do!

This shirt was such a fun and cute top to wear! I love the off the shoulder look, but still maintaining a shirt appearamce. This top seems to be more practical for children. Especially when they want to pull and tug on your clothes. One tug too hard and there goes a free show to anyone around! Oh those kiddos! The bag was a TJ Maxx find, and you know how those go. Almost impossible to find online. Check with your local store.
