The sales are starting everywhere and I am getting pretty excited about it!

Ruby Red
Monday, November 23, 2015 14 Comments Images

I instantly fell in love with the color of this dress, and knew I had to pair it with a vibrant red lip. I go through phases where I don't wear lipstick very often, then I put it on for a day and fall in love all over again. I sometimes have a hard time wearing it with the boys because it somehow ends up smeared on me, or on one of them from giving them too many kisses. I will link a few of my favorite red lipsticks below for those of you that have been asking. Thanks for following and happy Tuesday, love you all!

Cali Vaca Recap
Monday, November 23, 2015 8 Comments Images

We took this footage a while back when we did a little family vaca to cali. We actually went with Orbit Baby to Terranea and it was one of the most fun trips we have done with our boys. We had a good amount of play, relax time, and lots of yummy food. Not to mention, the unbelievable scenery at and hospitality we experienced at Terranea Resort. The boys (Brody included) had a blast at the pools, and we all loved hiking and wondering around the resort grounds, as well as the beaches near the resort. I am so glad I found this footage and wanted to make a little vlog for you guys to check out if you wanted. Sorry it's a little late, but I hope you still enjoy! Happy Monday to you all!!

Living Fall
Thursday, November 19, 2015 26 Comments Images

Everything about these pictures describes Fall....from sweaters, to leaves and everything else. These boys are completely in their element when they are playing with sticks and leaves, and I love it! Their imagination is so amazing to me. I sometimes wish I still had the imagination and the ability to let go of every worry in the world, and just enter a completely different world when pretending and playing. One of my favorite things to do is just sit back and watch how they interact, from the funny things they do with each other, to the laughs they share! The best is probably the quirky little things that Hanes says to Arrow. Their personalities are so different yet they are so similar at the same time. I love seeing them play together and I hope it just continues.
I am wearing one of my favorite bags in this post. I am all about backpacks and always have been. They are so much easier to wear, especially with kids. I have to say that the bags that I wear the most hands down, are my Louis Vuitton bags. They are like the perfect classic handbag that never gets old. Somehow they seem to match almost everything in my closet and are the easiest to just throw on for any occasion. I don't know about any of you but I am all about buying gently used handbags. For some reason it is so much easier for me to buy a pricier bag when I know it isn't brand spanking new and I know I'm not paying full price for it. I know some of you may disagree, but I am one to love a sale and always have. I grew up this way and I don't think it will ever change. I got this LV bag from The Lady Bag and am already browsing all the time for my next bag. If you guys are anything like me then you should totally check it out. Anyway, I hope you all have an awesome Thursday and have something fun planned for the day. Brody and I are going to Mockingjay part 2 tonight and I can't wait. I am a movie lover and am even more excited to splurge and have some movie popcorn, I just can not pass that stuff up! Have a great day! Love you all!

Checks for Days

The minute I saw this shirt and handbag combo from Charming Charlie I knew I had to have it, especially for the holiday season. I am all about a checkered pattern and I feel like it's one of those patterns that never goes out of style. I found this little bag charm on their site and am so excited to add it to all my bags. It gives that perfect little pop of color without being too fussy. I want to pair it with a bright red lip next time I wear it.
Charming Charlie is also doing a holiday program called Smile, Sparkle, Shine where they are helping women smile, sparkle, shine this holiday season and here’s how you can get involved. Post an image wearing CC to Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, and tag the person you like to nominate to smile, sparkle + shine using #charmthem #contest. Then they will be awarding weekly winners with Charming Charlie prizes. I hope you guys are getting ready for the holiday season and are ready to bling it up with some cute outfits!

Maternity Collab
Monday, November 16, 2015 11 Comments Images

Okay so first things first, I am NOT pregnant....I repeat, I am not pregnant haha. I had the amazing opportunity to co-design a maternity line with one of my favorite brands that I have worked with, Le Tote, and after being pregnant twice I knew I had to do it! If you don't already know what or who Le Tote is, it's a fashion service where you get to wear and return unlimited clothing and accessories for one monthly price. A maternity prescription costs $59/mon and a classic costs $49/mon. The maternity subscription gives you access to our maternity and maternity friendly collections filled with top maternity brands. This makes it so that you can try things on in your own home, get new brands, styles, and trends without breaking the bank, and always have something new to wear! Now if you're a mom then you know how impossible that can be most days with little ones. I love that we got to collaborate on a maternity line because what more would a mommy and a mommy to be need!? Buying a whole new wardrobe for maternity is expensive, I always ended up spending way more than I wanted on maternity clothes. Le Tote and I want to help women feel stylish, confident, and save money while they're pregnant. So now instead of having one pair of maternity jeans and a few tops to cycle through, you'll have unlimited looks to try. Making it easier and more fun to get dressed every morning! I remember getting dressed when I was pregnant and it can be so frustrating some days. I wanted to make pieces that would be simple enough to pair with so many different pieces, yet stand out and be stylish and comfortable at the same time. Le Tote is also awesome because when you have your new baby and are trying to get back to post pregnancy body, you can use Le Tote to wear new styles and change your size profile as you go. At least for me my body continued to change for quite some time, so this definitely would have been nice. I know it may seem crazy that I threw on a fake belly to do this, but I really had to in order to know that I would love these clothes as much as I was hoping, for when I get pregnant again. I hope this helps all of you mothers and soon to be mothers. I can't wait to wear these pieces when I am actually pregnant again one day, and feeling that little baby kick in my tummy! 
p.s. You can sign up for Le Tote Classic or Le Tote Maternity with the code CARA20 for 20% off expires 12/1/15.
