Fashion Inspiration

Recently I've been spotting flared jeans more and more... it's like my high school days have come back to haunt me. It's funny how fashion trends come in and out of style. I tend to gravitate towards the fashion styles I wore in high school. I'm not entirely sure why. Maybe it's a comfort thing? Either way, I'm happy to see flared jeans again and to give my legs a breather from all the skinny jeans.

Flared Jeans

I picked up a pair of high waist, flared jeans from American Eagle and I'm so in love with them! The downfall though? They're not great in snow since you can't tuck them into boots. But believe me when I say I'll be rocking them come Spring with flats and sneakers.



Cabin Socks

I stole two pairs of Adam's oversized cabin socks years ago. I wear them to bed or around the house during winter. They're huge, thick wool socks that are so comfy. But I can't wear them out of the house because they're too big. So I've invested in a few pairs of ladies cabin socks to wear out of the house. I'm obsessed. Warm, comfy socks have become my weakness. I basically live in them with leggings and my furry winter boots. It's very similar to the look below (but add on a winter coat).


Swing Dresses

I've been addicted to swing dresses since I bought my first one at Old Navy a year or so ago. Since then I keep picking up more whenever Old Navy puts them on sale; different designs, long and short sleeved ones. They're beyond comfy, perfect to pair with leggings and easy to dress up or down. I'm actually nervous for when the style will go out of fashion because where will I buy more? But after checking out the 2017 spring fashion trends, I think they'll be sticking around with styles from the 70s being strong this year.



What fashion trends are you coveting?

  1. I agree! Dresses are just as easy as shorts or jeans and a tee.Last time I buy the good quality dress in dress slip and I fall in love with it .

New Mom Must-Haves

It's been just over 9 months since Emma entered this world. It's been crazy. So many ups and downs. But I wouldn't trade this experience in for anything. She's amazing. It's definitely a learning experience and I wouldn't have gotten through the last 9 months without the support I've had. My family and friends have been welcome resources to help me in this new chapter of my life.

Emma has been a great baby - she sleeps well, she eats well, she's overall content and happy. We haven't experienced many problems. But that doesn't mean every day has been easy. Some days I don't get the chance to shower between Emma, chores, and just trying to eat; other days, naps are on schedule, feedings run smooth, and I have the opportunity to not only shower, but write up a blog post or bake cookies.

Since it's the time of year when people are out buying gifts, I thought I'd share the top must-haves I've needed over the last 9 months. They would …

My Favourite Baby Must-Haves

Having my first child has been eye-opening. I've learnt so much and made so many mistakes. It becomes a guessing game of what your child needs at times. You want to be 'perfect' but the reality is we're all just winging it and doing the best we can. Sometimes that means spending hours on Google, texting every 'mom' friend you have, or on hold with poison control because your baby licked eczema cream off your finger when you were putting it on her cheeks (or trying to).

With Christmas around the corner, I thought I'd share the top baby items that have saved us over and over again. They would be perfect gift ideas for new parents-to-be or stocking stuffers for infants.

1. Swaddle blankets - even if your child doesn't like to be swaddled these blankets are amazing. They're extra large and made from a breathable cotton. They were perfect for the spring and summer to bring with us on walks. If there was a cool breeze, too much sun, or Emma was upset, hav…

New Beginning

It's a new year which always feels like a new beginning to me; a fresh start. I've never been one to hold myself all that accountable for new year resolutions. I wrote down a few goals I'd like to work on this year, but honestly, the only things that matter to me this year are making memories and doing what makes me happy.

We have some fun plans this year, some set in stone and others that we need to finalize. Emma will be walking this year and she's already proved 2019 to be interesting since she's now crawling and trying to stand up. I can only imagine how many new adventures we'll encounter this year with her.

I've also found new inspiration in my creative life - artists, creators, crafts, fabric. So many things have sparked new motivation in me. I haven't felt that in a while to be honest. It's nice. It's nice to feel these things again which make me want to spend time in my craft room or sit at my laptop and write .

My first step in my newf…
