Spring Forward with rue21!

Saturday, March 7, 2020

Hi everyone!
It's already March and I can feel Spring creeping up on us! I don't know about you but I am super excited for Spring to come. I really need more sunshine and warmth in my life - I'm over this dull and gray weather!

I'm excited for today's post because I am talking all about SPRING FASHION! I partnered with rue21 to show you FOUR outfits for Spring. (This is a paid partnership with rue21). 

I love all their selections from their new Spring line - make sure to check it out! 
I'll be linking all outfit details below.


I've been living in these mom jeans from the new Spring line! I love that I can just wear these with anything and it'll look good. It's such a great staple piece for your wardrobe. I paired the jeans with these cute taupe peep toe booties, which is a perfect transition piece to Spring!

Overalls, Anyone?

I love this outfit! It's so casual and chic at the same time. I love the little flare at the bottom, which gives it that flowy-ness. This is the Black Tied Strap Front Pocket overalls. I wore a white long sleeved shirt underneath since it's still a bit chilly out. I also paired it with the most comfiest sandals ever!!! The nude color helps tie everything in together. These are the Tan Crisscross Lug Sole Flatform sandals! I know I'll be wearing these A LOT for Spring and Summer.

  Seriously, how CUTE are these flatforms? 

Paperbag Jumpsuit

I've been SUPER into that paper bag style lately. I fell in love with this Burnt Red Surplice Paper Bag Jumpsuit - It's really flattering on my body! There are three different colors, too! Mustard, Burnt Red, and Lavender. As soon as I tried this jumpsuit on, I felt beautiful and empowered! I'll definitely be sporting this outfit for Spring.

I paired the jumpsuit with the beautiful peep toe buckle booties from my first outfit! The taupe color allows for any outfit to match.

Boho Vibes

I don't know about you but I got some major boho vibes from this outfit! I love the lace detailing on the dress and how flowy it is. I'm wearing the Medium Pink Lace Insert Maxi Dress. Since it's pretty deep cut in the front and I didn't really feel like showing off too much cleavage, I put on a form fitting jean jacket to add some more dimension. Oh, and a wide-brim hat, of course! 

Thanks to my wonderful Hubby for taking pics for me! And a HUGE thank you to rue21 for sponsoring this post and providing me with some cute Spring outfits!

How To Style Mommy and Me Fashion

Friday, February 28, 2020

Happy Friday, everyone!

I can't believe February is pretty much over - where has the time gone?! This month feels like it flew by. Does anyone else feel like this? 

I wanted to share some cuuuuute Mommy and Me outfits with you in today's blog post! Threadtank was so sweet to gift us a couple of matching t-shirts for Everly and I. Their slogan is "Stories You Can Wear" and I absolutely LOVE that! They seriously have the cutest t-shirts for pretty much any occasion in your life! I was super impressed with the quality of the shirts, too! They are buttery soft and printed with high-quality ink. I love that I can wear more Mommy and Me outfits with Everly now. If only she'd stay still when we take pictures haha! You should see all the outtakes.....


How stinkin' adorable is this Coffee & Milk set? It's the perfect Mommy and Me bundle and would make for a wonderful gift! I styled this shirt with some dark jeans to keep it super casual...You can't go wrong with a t-shirt and jeans! :)


I don't know about you guys but I'm a huge FRIENDS fan! It's easily one of my favorite TV shows ever. When I saw that Threadtank had a Friends-style Mommy and Me set, I was so excited! Everly seemed pretty happy with it too :D I chose the color Heather Rouge.

I styled this outfit with some black leggings/yoga pants and matching Adidas sneakers! I found Everly's Adidas sneakers at Marshalls a few months ago and bought it at an amazing price.

Graco Influencer Event 2020

Thursday, January 30, 2020

Hi everyone! Happy New Year :) This is officially my first blog post of 2020.

Earlier in December, I was accepted into a special partnership with Graco! They hand-selected a few influencers to their HQ in Atlanta, Georgia. I was one of the lucky girls to be chosen by Graco's team to be part of their special influencer event. All travel expenses, food, and transportation was covered thanks to Graco! I'm so excited to share my experience with ya'll and tell you all about Graco's newest products.

Although short, the two days that I spent in GA was nothing short of amazing! 

My first day consisted of mostly traveling and getting settled into the hotel. They booked us rooms at the W Hotel in Buckhead, GA. I absolutely loved my room and the overal decor/vibe of the hotel - it was super hip. Graco scheduled a Welcome Dinner at 6pm so that all the influencers and Graco team members could meet and get to know each other. We went to an amazing Italian restaurant called Storico Fresco. The food was absolutely delicious!! We had our own customized pre-fix menus.

Graco gave us a welcome goodie bag when we checked in!

How freaking adorable is this nametag?!

The beautiful table scape at Storico Fresco.

I honestly had so much fun learning about the newest Graco products and meeting all of the Graco team members! (Check my Graco highlights on my IG to follow along!) Graco rented out a gorgeous Airbnb house and decorated it so beautifully!!

We even got a mini yoga session in, which was such a treat! 

After a yummy breakfast, we broke off into groups and learned about the new products for their 2020 Registry Collection. It was so amazing hearing about an idea come to fruition and seeing the actual product in front of you. These girls go above and beyond with their creativity and innovation. I was so genuinely impressed with each and every product they talked about. We are huge fans of the Graco 4ever car seats and pack n plays! Did you know that Graco was the first company to invent the Pack n Play?! I had no idea! They’re also one of the oldest baby companies in the market - they’ll be turning 65 this year!

After a scrumptious catered lunch, we all headed to the Graco crash test facility. 

This was so cool to see because you never really think about the BTS aspects of a product. We saw some really innovative machines at the facility and also observed a real crash test for a car seat! 

One of the senior engineers showing us a miniature version of a carseat made from a 3D printer!! How cool is that!?

This was one of the testing sites and this mama was working even though she was due any moment! Talk about commitment!
They go above and beyond with their crash testing - more than what is required! This year, they've included the side crash testing and the rollover testing to their safety standards (even though it is not required!).

You'll see the new label "Protect Plus" on all of their newest carseats to indicate the updates on their safety standards.

This is what I love and appreciate about Graco. They take so much pride in their work and genuinely want to improve and further their products to make OUR lives easier. They’re also prettttty darn safe, which is a HUGE plus when you’re a mama. Gotta protect our babies!

I’m probably leaving out so many other details but these past two days is exactly what I needed. Thank you so so much to Graco and their team for inviting us and educating us about your products. It was truly special!

Til next time, Graco!
