Rhinestones and Tulle
11:14 PM 15 Comments 24 Images

Today's post is all sorts of girly.... from tulle, flowers, rhinestones, and everything in between. I am not one to usually dress up, but when I get the chance I love to go all out.  I am a little backwards on posts because this post was the day before I colored my hair so it's a little lighter in these pictures.  I know I will always end up going back to this blonde, but I was ready for a little change and thought what better time to do it than now, as we head into Fall.
Back to the new blog for a second, I would love to hear input on the blog as well.  Whether you like or even dislike certain things about it.  My whole goal is to make it better for all of my followers, so I hope I achieved that.  You were all so sweet yesterday and I love having that support, it meant more than you know.  It makes me remember how much I love to blog and that you guys are the reason I am where I am today.  So thank you all and I love you!

I have been really excited about today for a long time.....as you can probably tell the blog got a major makeover. We have been working on this for quite some time because I wanted it to be just right. I really hope you guys enjoy, and find all the new aspects easy to use. My main goal was to have it be clean and different, but very easy to use at the same time. If there are little glitches today I am sorry, I promise everything will be perfectly smooth as quick as possible.

I also have to take a minute to talk about today's outfit post because it's one of my favorite. I can already tell the dress will be in my rotation very frequently. It's the perfect color and fit for any occasion. Oh and what about this adorable pram? I was beyond excited when Inglesina contacted me and I couldn't wait to sport this beauty. It's the cutest little thing I have ever seen and Arrow loves riding in it. It also came with a toddler seat so when he gets older we can transition into that as well. Anyways, thanks for following along and I hope you all have a fabulous Monday and enjoy the new blog!

p.s. I decided to do a little ombre' to bring in Fall......it's a change but I definitely was in need of one for a little bit!

You have probably already noticed that I have a thing for backpacks and this Kipling backpack is no different.  I love how casual and fun they make an entire outfit.  They are also much easier to carry when holding the hand of a two year old and carrying a newborn.  Let's just say your hands can get a little full sometimes, so having a backpack helps a lot.  The Kipling brand is celebrating on the go women like myself so the "Always on Collection" was perfect for me.
p.s. Make sure to RSVP to kipling-usa.com/always-on/ to attend a fun event with Kipling on September 17th and 18th at Grand Central Terminal.

Hats Off

One of my new favorite places to shop and browse is The Dreslyn...if you are yet to check them out, let me tell you that you must.  Not only are the pieces amazing, the styling is on point.  I browse through all the looks and wish I owned every single item I see.  One of the first things on my wishlist was a new fedora hat and the moment I saw this hat, I knew it was mine.  I wanted a hat that had a sturdy brim rather than a floppy brim.  This hat was the perfect choice and I have already worn it 3 times in less than a week, it's a greasy hair life saver! Hope you are all having a great week!

Little Runts
12:02 AM 22 Comments 24 Images

These two little boys right here are my life, and there is no one else I would rather have by my side.  I have to be honest, I am a little exhausted lately and still adjusting to be a mom of two, but there is nothing in the world I would rather be than exhausted from than these two little nerds.  Arrow is a cuddle bug and Hanes just wants to play all day, so I kind of get the best of both worlds.  Hanes has also adjusted pretty dang well to being a big bro and he just can't wait until Arrow can play Ninja Turtles with him. I'm sure I will continue to be in zombie mode for the next couple months so bare with me if I don't immediately get to emails, or misspell a couple words here and there.....it bound to happen.  Thanks for all being as sweet as ever, and I hope you have a happy hump day!

Must Have Basic

I am most definitely a collector of good basic pieces and this top is now on top of my list.  It has the boyfriend fit like I want, the longer sleeve, and good neckline.  I found this top at Magnolia Boutique and at a killer price.  Magnolia Boutique has well edited, budget friendly pieces that are on trend and match any look you are going for! Have fun shopping and use the discount code "CARALOREN" for 15% off at Magnolia Boutique. Happy Monday ya'll!
