Spring is here y’all, aka “wind season” for us West Texans! If you haven’t noticed the color blush is everywhere, like seriously tennis shoes, jeans, nail polish, jewelry, tops etc! I’m so drawn to this color this year and it’s totally taking over my closet! I’m not one bit mad about it. It’s such a beautiful color, super airy and just feels right for spring when the weather is getting warmer, things are blooming and life is just getting prettier!

Spring is upon us! Let’s bring on all the warm weather, the outside memories and most importantly the spring wardrobe! I always love when winter is over and I can start dressing my kiddos in spring colors and styles! One of our favorite go-to places to find fashionable, yet affordable great quality clothing is OshKosh.
Off the shoulder tops have always been a favorite of mine! They are fun, flirty, show a little skin and just make a super fun outfit! This top from SheIn quickly became my favorite as soon as I took it out of the package. The black and white stripes and the button down detail…ah just obsessed! I knew it would look great with this high waisted split maxi skirt & wedges! I’m in love with this outfit!
Reality…sometimes it’s better than you imagined & unfortunately sometimes it’s not! I was hit with a big dose of reality not being quite what I hoped for this past weekend! Something we have had planned for months didn’t go as planned & it really frustrated me so I thought I would share my struggles with things not turning out like you hoped for and how you can always see the good even in a tough situation.
The “cold” shoulder trend, people may call it cold but my goodness it is one of the hottest trends to date! You see it everywhere and there is a reason! I truly don’t see it dying out anytime soon and I’m going to share with you several reasons why you can expect to see it around for the long haul!
It’s fun– I have yet to find a cold shoulder top that wasn’t just love at first sight!
It adds flair– It’s a subtle way to add some flair to your outfit without being too out there!
It’s mom appropriate– I know as mom’s we question what we can wear after children and this trend is a total home run! It makes you feel a little more put together and maybe even a little sexy because lets be honest yoga pants and a tee with spit up doesn’t exactly make you feel ooh la la! It helps you come back to loving your body even if it’s just your arms for the time being! You’ll learn to love your post baby body so just embrace the little changes and find other ways to spice up your wardrobe!
It doesn’t have an age– I’ve seen anyone from sweet little toddlers to my grandma wearing cold shoulder tops & I think everyone can feel cute wearing one!
It’s flattering on everyone– The great thing about the cold shoulder top is the amount of shoulder showing totally depends on the top! You can look for a top that shows a tiny bit or one that shows your entire arm! It’s flattering on everyone and I truly think it’s a trend that makes everyone feel good!
I don’t see the “cold” shoulder top fading out anytime soon and I am so happy! It’s honestly one of my favorite trends of all time and I can’t wait to see all of you trying it out! If you are doubting that you can pull it off I highly recommend shaking that insecurity and trying one on, I don’t think you will regret it! Go rock one of the hottest “cold” trends of the fashion world!

Slow down mama, yes you…the mom who keeps telling your children to “hurry up”, who keeps counting to 10 in hopes that it makes them clean up their mess faster, the mom who has said hold on 723 times to that tiny hand pulling on your shirt! Breathe, mama. It’s okay to slow down. It’s okay to take time to breathe them in, the giggles, the silly jokes, the mess, the dirt, the chaos…slow down and soak that in because the moments are fleeting!
Did you know that February is American Heart Month? In a world with so many health issues and problems I really try to focus on finding my family things that help promote a healthy lifestyle while still bringing fun & great tasting things to the table! I really want my children to realize the importance of good foods, the right color food choices and what each of them adds to their well being, as well as the importance of keeping an active lifestyle!

I am sharing with you the top 3 ways to spread love this Valentine’s Day!
