Hello, Fall! Old Navy Fall Finds

Hello, Fall! Old Navy Fall Finds

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!

Sneaker Round-Up

Sneaker Round-Up

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!

Spring Jumpsuits

Spring Jumpsuits

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 absolutely love this denim jacket!

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.

How was your Easter weekend?

Target Gift Guide For Her

Target Gift Guide For Her

I’ve been missing for a couple weeks from the blog just trying to figure out how a lot of the linking of products works and toggling through other changes.  But I’m back now, just in time for all the holiday festivities and I’ve come back to you with an awesome small Gift Guide for all the ladies in your life you know the moms, daughters, sisters, sister-in-laws, teachers, co-workers, or even simply for YOU! I’m guilty (hope the hubby doesn’t read this) I ended up purchasing a couple products from this guide myself! The temptation was strong as I was writing up all the descriptions and linking the items to this post.  And what mom leaves Target without buying something?!

Speaking of linking items, this is my first gift guide and as an avid reader of many blogs on the Internet I always loved seeing the gift guides for the holidays that influencers posted but I never realized how much work is put into putting these guides together and linking the items.  I wanted to thank you all for the support by reading along.  Also, if any of the products are of interest simply click the image link in the grid below and purchase the product.  If you purchase the product through the link I’ve provided I get a small credit for putting this all together! And as a new blogger your support would be greatly appreciated, so Thank You!

Target is always such a great option for budget friendly buys from kitchen necessities, clothing, accessories, or tech gadgets. So here goes it… Here is my Gift Guide for Her… I’ve added a brief description on each item.

Gift Guide For Her

Yankee Candle
Pajama Set
Instant Pot
Mittens
Womens Cozy Plush Robe
Hello Gorgeous Mug
Faux Fur Slippers
Beats Wireless Headphones
OTK Boots – Target
Wool Duffel Coat – Target

Yankee Candle-  Coming from a Pakistani family where the smell of the curry pretty much seeps into your jackets, clothes and hair I’ve always been paranoid and invested in good scents for the home and Yankee Candle has never disappointed! It smells so crisp and strong enough to cover the smell of curries so this is your buy if you want to gift a candle

Pajama Set- Gilligan & O’Malley is one of the softest set of loungewear that Target carries.  I basically lived in their loungewear and pajamas when I was expecting.

Instant Pot- This sweet thing has been the talk of the town! Meals are prepped way faster. If you have kids and you have to cook meat don’t spend hours thawing the meat and then cooking it. Pressure cookers were always a concern for my mom so she instilled this fear in us and maybe the fact that one bursted in our kitchen when we were kids probably has a little something to do with my fear of them too! But with toddlers around I need something thats safer and a set-and-go and this is just that! It releases the pressure on its own so no time tracking or any hassle!

Sherpa Mittins- Soft and cute! Perfect stocking stuffers too!

Plush Robe- I’m telling you, you can’t go wrong with Gilligan O’ Malley, this robe is so soft and cozy!

Wool Coat- This wool coat is almost a knock off of the one at JCrew. It’s so cute and I love the red color for this time of year. It’s been selling fast!!

Faux Fur Slippers- Yes, Please! Need I say more, faux fur and slippers!! Get a feel of actually walking on cloud nine with these slippers perfect for gifting!

Hello Gorgeous Mug- This is too cute, who wouldn’t want to wake up to a cup of coffee praising them!

Beats Solo Headphone- These are probably the priciest item on this gift guide. Definitely a splurge but so worth the buy! The sound of music on these headphones takes you to a different level. And if you’re a mom like me sometimes you just need a pair of headphones to block it all out so you can binge watch some TV in peace! Best gift my husband got me!!

OTK Boots- I was a little hesitant to try a pair of OTK boots this fall because I am short and another influencer convinced me its okay to be short you can still pull off the style.  But I didn’t want to invest in a pair that was super pricey just in case I didn’t like the style but these ended up being the nicest OTK Boots ever and oh so comfortable!! They are less than $45 right now!!

I hope this little gift guide helps you in finding the perfect gift for the special lady in your life whether it be your mom, mom-in-law, sister, teacher, grandma, etc. I tried to add variety in cost and in the selection of items. This was my first gift guide so comment below and let me know what you think! What are some things on your holiday list this year? Are gift guides helpful to you?

Black Friday Nordstrom

Black Friday Nordstrom

Tis’ the season for all the shopping because sales are in full swing.  One of my favorite stores to shop from during this time of year is Nordstrom because of all the amazing sales and deals you can find on the priciest clothing.

I first and foremost stock up on denim from some of my favorite designers. Denim is something we wear everyday and you want to invest in a good pair of jeans.  When it comes to denim you can never go wrong with the brands Paige, Frame, or AG! These brands provide the most butter soft jeans and in so many different styles.  And one brand may fit differently than another brand.  Here I’ve linked three of my favorite denims on sale from this years Black Friday deal. These denims at regular price are VERY expensive so its best to score them while they are on sale. Also, they are such good quality that they will last you for a very long time!

These shirts and sweaters linked below are the perfect winter finds and so versatile you can dress them casual or formal in so many styles.  And they are on major sale this week so don’t miss the chance to snag some of these cozy sweaters. Cardigans are one of my favorite items to stock up on as well because as a mom on the go I can literally just pull one out of the closet and put it on as I’m on the run for errands. I have two toddlers so even for date night I’m usually super busy before I get out the door trying to get the kids settled in before the sitter comes, prepping dinner, preparing milk sippy cups, getting pajamas all ready, etc. so most days I’ll just slip a cardigan on with a nice top paired with denim or leggings, and a nice pair of shoes.

I’ve learned a lot about capsule wardrobes and it has changed my perspective when I shop I try to buy tops that I know can be pieced with other items easily basically trying to get multiple outfits from one piece out of your wardrobe. And these two shirts linked below are the perfect addition to any capsule wardrobe.  The BP shirt I’ve had for over a year now I bought two pairs in black and white and I have basically lived in those shirts.  They are so versatile, they can be worn with leggings, denim, cardigans, so many ways to style these shirts.  I’ll have some pictures up on the blog and my instagram for some ideas.

The BP Side Slit Tee above I have two pairs a black and white which I basically lived in all year long.  I have literally worn them out and I just ordered two more pairs for myself. And they are on sale too right now for under $20.

I love all the coats linked below.  A trench coat is a must have for any wardrobe they are my go-to coats on rainy days and the best for stuffing in a bag during any travel.  And this Halogen one linked below is on sale 40% off at Nordstrom.  At this price don’t miss the chance to add it to your closet.  You can purchase it by simply clicking on the picture below.  And this suede moto jacket is so cute and perfect to dress up your outfit for date night.  You can pair this with a nice dress, black leggings, or denim. I absolutely love it! The last link is the most cozy fleece jacket ever it is on sale at less than $60.  I got lucky and found a similar fleece jacket which I wore throughout fall from TJMaxx. I have posted a couple pictures on my instagram from it.

There is so much more I have that I want to share.  I’m working on linking more stuff for you all to see.  I’m still getting the hang of linking items and I had some technical issues with my website this week so its set me back from some of my posts. But stay tuned I have more coming…late tonight or early tomorrow morning.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving! And Happy Shopping!

 

Joggers for Life

Joggers for Life

I jump with joy the days I can just get a few minutes to myself.  Things around here with toddler boys can sometimes get a little haywire.  I went to moms yesterday and the boys missed their naps by about 5pm my mom was having her anxiety kick in because the kids were literally running and jumping off the walls. The beauty of missing their naps was they were knocked out and asleep by 7pm sharp! I snuck in a nap once they fell asleep which was so refreshing!

We were hit with a bit of rain and some flurries yesterday but that didn’t stop us from hitting the polls! I loved seeing all the posts on everyone stepping out and getting their voice heard! As the weather gets colder we moms still have to step out for early morning school drop-offs or errands and there’s nothing like having a pair of joggers to add to your momiform to keep things warm and cozy. I just had to pop in and share the sweetest deal on the coziest Alternative joggers ever!

IMG_7204

(To purchase simply click on either of the images below and buy yourself a pair, there are more colors and prints you can select from once you click the image)

These joggers fit snug like a glove and to add to their comfort they are SOFT!! They have a slim fit to them and they do tend to shrink just a little after the first wash. Initially I bought these joggers in a medium because many reviews said they run small but the medium gave me a loser fit whereas the small size was more snug. I prefer to wear joggers a little more snug (I’m about 5 feet and wear a size 24 or 25).  I love these joggers so much that I have four pairs!!

My first initial find for the Alternative jogger was at Nordstrom but they were priced at $54.  Until I found them on Amazon for less than $25!!!! Sweet deals like this make me jump with joy!!! I’ve linked the Alternative joggers here.  They come in different colors and even a fun camo print (*note pricing varies on amazon based on the print/color you select).  As the weather is getting cooler all of us moms can use a cozy pair of joggers to cozy up by the fireplace or slip them on in the crisp cold mornings when we have to drop the kids off to school. Don’t miss out on this deal! To purchase simply click the image/link and buy your pair now!

As the holidays approach I’m excited to share more styles and deals with you so stay tuned with me I’ll be posting more updates on sales and discounts!
