Hey Everyone, It’s the first week of November and I’ve been itching to get my Christmas décor out sometime this week. Halloween was a doozy we went to my brother-in-laws office event where they had the entire bank all decked out in Halloween spirit with candies and a haunted house. We ditched the door-to-door trick or treating due to super cold weather. But the boys really enjoyed passing out candy to other kids. I wanted to come on here today and share some of my favorite boots for the winter. So many options and so much out there…rain boots, snow boots, OTK boots, boots with the fur, and if you’re from Idaho even cowboy boots! I want to make sure you get the most of your money’s worth as you shop this holiday season.
The Sorel boots are warm as ever! A bit of a splurge but so worth it! The ones I’m wearing in this picture are kids size linked here! I have very small feet, I wear a size 5 and sometimes 5.5 so I managed to get these in the kids size and they cost almost $100 less than the women’s size 5. (just a fun tip I learned from another mommy blogger over the years for shoes, if you have small feet check some kids sizes, works like a gem!)
These are dupes to the Sorel boots! Super light, I wear them as my everyday winter boots. I’ve had them for over a year now and they are still good as new. I found them at Tjmaxx, talk about budget friendly buys. I could not link the exact pair but another pair of boots almost identical that I spotted at target I’ve linked here.
These are by far the warmest winter boots. As far as styling them they are a bit more on the casual side but if you’re looking for boots to keep your toes warm in temperatures below zero these are it! I’ve had mine for a while now and I’ll wear them to do errands around town or playing in the snow with the kids. The plush lining inside is the best part because it keeps my feet warm. If your headed to Park City or Sun Valley this winter or any ski trips these are perfect for walking too, very comfortable and best of all warm!! I had a pair I wore in college that ultimately had to be retired after several years of use. These are perfect for college students! Walking between classes to different buildings in the winter can be a nightmare! But these keep your feet so toasty! A great holiday gift for a college student too!
Rain, sunshine, or snow these work great! You can use them in the spring rain, during fall at the muddy pumpkin patches, and you can use them in the winter snow! However, I would definitely purchase hunter socks with the boots if you decide to use them in the winter because those worn without the socks are meant for rainy days.
That was my round-up of winter boots! The price range varies so if you’re up for splurging then definitely go for the Sorel, they are by far my favorite during the winter!
I’m sorry I have managed to disappear again! I’ve been sick, yes it caught up to me! My younger one got an ear infection over the weekend and somewhere in between I got sick too! But I’m feeling much better I got to nap yesterday for a couple hours.
But my short nap lead to chaos I woke up and found our bathroom drain closed, with water filled in the sink, towels flushed down the toilet, and after that a very exhausted toddler who decided to nap right next to me in a dirty diaper, he napped from 4-6pm! Ahhh!!! Any toddler mom’s worst nightmare is basically a toddler napping after 4pm! He ended up being up until 11pm last night. So much for a nap, who was I kidding, mom’s clearly can’t be sick or nap!
I used my time until JJ fell asleep to get some much needed laundry done, some instagram posts planned out and I got to catch up on emails last night and good thing I did because I was reminded of the Jcrew Factory 60% off everything sale!
Talk about being fashionably late! Better late than never right?! I just wanted to pop on here and share some of my favorites from the sale! SO many great staple items you will need to complete that fall capsule closet!
So here goes it…If you like anything please purchase from the links I’ve provided it’s the only way I receive a small credit from your purchase and it makes this new venture of mine possible! #EntrepreneurLife #Influencerinthemaking #InfluencerLife
Hope this little sale selection of mine helped! Happy Shopping!
Hey Friends! You know how just last week I was so happily welcoming fall, well that lasted for about two minutes because the weekend was freezing we had our first snowfall for the season. The boys were so excited to see the flurries coming down and wondering why they couldn’t just yet make a snowman, little do they know the long winter ahead, yikes!
I didn’t get a chance to pop on here last week very much we had a house of sick toddlers that lead to days off of school and no soccer practice! I basically had to keep Rayyan’s asthma under control which meant trying to keep a three year old from running around we resorted to reading books, playing cards, doing workbooks, practicing our letters/numbers basically A LOT of mommy and me time and best of all snuggles! But all good now, we had a relaxing weekend sipping on hot drinks and cozying up by the fireplace. I finally see a sight of recovery!
Even though the weather may be going crazy on us I still am going to keep these fall vibes going because I love this season! Today I wanted to style a closet essential for every mom, sneakers!! Sneakers are my go-to shoes for pretty much all the day-to-day run around. There are so many fun ways to dress up sneakers from wide leg pants to even dresses!
What are some ways you like to style your sneakers? Are you an adidas or nike fan? What’s your go-to comfy shoe? I hope some of these looks have inspired you to dress up your kicks!
It’s finally Fall! Bring me all things, cozy, and pumpkin spice! Here’s to a season of cozy sweaters, Halloween spooking, apple picking and pumpkin patches! I love a change in season. Even though some seasons are shorter than others in Idaho I’m still so grateful we live in a place where we can experience all four seasons.
This time of year is my favorite because fall fashion is all about layering. As I’m hearing more and more about capsule wardrobes I am getting more hooked to the idea of making the most out of what is in my closet. For years I always go shopping at the beginning of every season to freshen up my wardrobe without thinking about what is actually in my closet and what I really am purchasing. I’ve learned the importance of capsule pieces and buying clothes that can be styled various different ways.
If you haven’t heard already there is a sale happening at Old Navy 25% off your order (no code needed)! So many gorgeous affordable fall pieces in right now that are perfect for adding to your fall capsule. I have linked some of my top finds right here!
Also, I want to know what works best for you! Would you rather I do a try-on session on my instagram stories? Would you rather I post pictures of styling your capsule pieces? Let me know your thoughts below!
It’s finally sunny and in the 60s around here and you’ll find my boys playing outside digging in dirt, jumping in puddles, watering plants, helping their grandpa plant, running around the backyard; I’m loving every minute of it! Their love for the outdoors reminds me of when I was little and we’d spend most of our days outside playing in the sprinklers and running to the ice cream truck for snow cones on hot summer days. We had one bike amongst the five of us sisters we’d share and being the youngest of the five sisters I’d be the one who never got a turn to ride the bike but I’d jump on and get a ride from each sister. Really nothing would stop us from enjoying our time outside!
With the kids being outside most the day I’m constantly chasing them because with my two year old sometimes playing in the dirt turns into discovering our tastebuds by eating the dirt. Some days I feel like a headless chicken running in all four directions trying to prevent chaos. Last Friday my two year old decided to walk out of the house without anyone noticing and luckily my sweet neighbor spotted him and brought him home (yes, major #MOMFAIL) how that happened is a story to be shared another time! With that said, I’m literally on the run all day and the importance of a good pair of sneakers is key when you’re a mom of two toddler boys. So, here’s my roundup of the 10 best must-have spring/summer sneakers all linked below! These have it all the style, glitz, glam, and of course comfort.
I rarely wear heels because I don’t think I’ll ever be the mom that can chase her kid down with stilettos. Are you the mom that’s walking down the grocery store aisle in her high heels perfecting that catwalk? Or are you the mom that slips on those sneakers and is on the run in the aisles like a contestant on Supermarket Sweep? (How many of you actually remember watching that show?!) I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
Happy Monday!! Here’s to a new week and a new day! So much to be grateful for; a busy yet memorable weekend and the start of a fresh week with positive thoughts and vibes only!
I meant to have a post out this weekend but honestly from the moment the weekend started on Friday to Sunday night we’ve been so busy. Friday was my day with the hubby I went on a drive to work with him. Occasionally we do that which is really nice because it gives us an opportunity to catch up on our week without distractions. So while he visited clients I decided to take a stroll in Target. I think for the first time I had a couple hours in there without the kids. Special shoutout to my lovely sisters for watching the boys despite the laundry list of things they had on their to-do lists!
With Spring finally blooming and Summer around the corner I can’t help but share some of my favorite jumpsuits. Jumpsuits are so comfortable and you can dress them up or down. I’ve linked a couple of my favorite finds at Target, super budget friendly and for my Muslim gals who have been asking me for jumpsuits that are more covered some of these are the perfect finds. For the jumpsuits that are sleeveless you can always pair them with a white or blue denim jacket on cooler days and nights.
I bought the jumpsuit and the denim jacket at our local TJMaxx so I wasn’t able to link the exact items but I’ve linked a very similar jumpsuit and denim jacket. These pumps I can basically live in because they are the most comfortable pair of heels I’ve ever owned. They are definitely worth the purchase.
From my trip to Target I found so many similar jumpsuits at such a reasonable price range. I’ve linked my favorites right here.
