White Floral















What I'm Wearing:

Top (sold out, similar) || Skirt || Shoes (similar) || Necklace ||

Hey Guys, 

One of my favorite things about blogging is other bloggers. There are so many talented fashionistas out there. I was browsing through my instagram feed when I saw this top from KBstyled. I fell in love with this beautiful flowy blouse. I had to have it. You can see how she style it here. 

This top is an amazing spring to summer top. I think this would be adorable with a cute pair of flared jeans and wedges. I love the hippie vibe it brings. I cannot wait to style this top in many different ways. Today I wanted to style it with a simple black pencil skirt. I love the freedom this blouse gives. It is a perfect modern touch to a momiform. Slip on a pair of jeans, flats ant this blouse and your good to go chase kids around the park. 

It's also perfect for school. Add a pair of high waisted jeans a side braid and a layered necklace. Not to mention this top was super inexpensive! But now sold out :(

Spring Vest









What I'm Wearing:

Top (similar) || Jeans || Vest || Necklace || Shoes (only $16) ||

Hey Guys, 

Brandon and I have restarted watching "The Walking Dead." We are finally to the season we haven't seen. I think the third season. I forget how intense this show was. I love it and I am obsessed. I am not a zombie movie fan, but I have really enjoyed this series. Not as much as "Breaking Bad", but pretty close. Daryl...is a stud. 

Anyway onto the outfit. I wanted to switch up a basic outfit with a simple sweater vest. I throw this on when I just want a little extra coverage. When you are having "fat" days, or Flow is visiting and you just want to wrap yourself up. I would also pair this with a cute pair of booties. I am waiting for these to come on sale. My jaw dropped when I stumbled across them on pinterest. 

Like I have said before I am in love with layered necklaces. Especially this set I got forever ago from Charming Charlie. I need to just move into that store I am there enough. They have a few bags that I have my eye on. This one and this one

Spring Colors









What I'm Wearing:

Top (similar) || Jeans || Flats (similar on sale) || Necklace || Blazer (similar) ||


Hey Guys,

I know these bubble necklaces were over done, and went out of style fast. I however am still holding strong onto this trend. I like the look it brings. I like the color that it adds to this otherwise bland combo. The necklace to the matching flats brings another element to the outfit. I wish I had a mint clutch to tie it all together. I have had my eye on this one for a while now. Might need to pull the trigger!

You can easily swap the blazer with a light cardigan. Like this one here. Spring is the season for cardigans and light sweaters. 

How to you like to style colors for spring. I would love to see your looks. Leave me a link, or picture in the comments!

Drape Me In Florals















What I'm Wearing:

Top || Pants || Heels (similar) || Necklace (old) || Clutch || 


Hey Guys, 

How adorable is this floral top!? Floral is my all time favorite pattern. If I see a floral pattern clothing item I will probably get it. I love how it styles! All the colors and accessories you can pair with it. I just die every time I see a beautiful floral pattern. I came across this top in the store and I liked it but I walked passed it and looked at a few other items and left. This top HAUNTED me. I thought about it all weekend. I thought about all the shoes I could wear with it, what clutches I could get from Charming Charlie to pair with it. It consumed me. So I went back and bought the last one! 

I wanted to pair it with a simple pair of black skinny jeans. I wanted all emphasis to be on this gorgeous top. It is boxy (my favorite). Now it is made of Rayon so I would recommend sizing up. Rayon shrinks and shrinks and shrinks. So take care of this top, or you won't have it for long. It is so worth it I am in love with this top. I want to find a cute pair of grey skinny jeans to pair with it and some red pumps and a navy jacket or sweater. Ugh can you tell I just can't stop with this top. I am not the only one because it is selling out fast! Good Luck. I want to see how you style your florals! Leave me a comment with a pic, or link to your looks.

Spring Booties












Top || Jeans || Booties (on sale) || Necklace (similar) ||


I don't think there is a season where booties are not appropriate. They transfer so well from season to season. They pair with skinny jeans, dresses, skirts, shorts, rompers, just about anything. Now you can splurge and buy some really cute expensive versions like here, and here. If you are on a budget you don't necessarily have to sacrifice style. These booties were inexpensive and they are surprisingly comfortable. Often Charolette Russe has BOGO sales. So watch their site often.

A simple white shirt can be one of the greatest staples in your closet. Basics will always stretch your money. A basic white tee and jeans can be changed up with different accessories and shoes. Throw on a cardigan or jacket to get even more out of your basics. I love buying things on the cheap I really do, when going for a basic item like this, something that you will wear often, you might want to spend a little more money than usual. You may think "why spend $30 on a white tee?" If you spend $15 on a cheap white tee after a few washes the cheaper fabric will shrink or stain. Where as a $30+ white tee will be made with finer fabric that will hold up. If you keep repurchasing an item you have already paid more than the more expensive item that will hold up longer. Some pieces are worth investing in. Do not spend a lot of money on trend pieces. They will go out of style and you will have paid more than you wanted on an item you can  no longer wear.

When styling a basic tee I love added a layered necklace to the outfit. Charming Charlie has the cutest layered necklace. This and this are in my shopping cart as we speak. Since layered necklaces are "trendy" pieces right now I would not spend a lot of money on them. That is why I love Charming Charlie they are the right price point for these pieces.

Live Free and Clear

As a mom of a young, messy toddler. A wife to a car junkie. I know a thing or two about tough stains. We love to camp, hike and be outdoors. Aria gets into anything and everything. She loves to play in the dirt and dig. Instead of preventing her from having fun and exploring I fight my battles in the laundry room. It is so important to let kids explore and figure out how things work, how things taste, smell, feel. Which can get quite messy. I need a detergent that is tough on our stains, but gentle on our skin. I have really sensitive, dry skin. I have battled eczema my whole life. all® free clear detergent is #1 recommended by dermatologists, allergists and pediatricians. It is not intended to prevent or treat allergies. 


I love clean laundry smell but I don't like the chemicals that it adds to my clothes and then to my skin. all® free clear detergent is 100% free of dyes and perfumes. It also removes 99% of the allergens your clothes come into contact with through out the day. Allergens such as pet dander, pollen, and dust mite matter. I love the all® free clear detergent, I really love the all® free clear Mighty Pacs®. I do get a bit carried away with my measuring out detergent. These all® free clear Mighty Pacs® help keep me from over using detergent. You just grab a pac and toss it in with your laundry. 

We live a Free and Clear life by exploring and admiring the beautiful outdoors. It can get challenging with a toddler. Finding places that are a close drive, what to pack, how to handle the messy after math of digging in the mountains. That is why you have me here to help you. Let's start off with some amazing places to enjoy the outdoors. Some of these are not stroller friendly but able to hike with a toddler on your back. Check the links below for info on stroller accessibility. 




-Rocky Mouth Falls Trail
-Little Cottonwood Trail
-Hidden Falls Trail
-Lisa Falls Trail
-Donut Falls Trail
-Ghost Falls 
-Temple Quarry Trail
-Dimple Dell Park




In order to have a successfull hike you need to be well prepared for safety measures and sanity measures. Your toddler needs to be happy in order to have an enjoyable experience. Make sure you pack a light but well thought out bag for your little one. One that can fit easily in a stroller, or things that won't take up a lot of space in your own bag. Here are things we like to pack for Aria in order to have a fun and successfull hike. 





Now that you have had a fun and successful hike, you probably are dirty. I know after a hike with Aria I can have food, dirt, dirty hand prints all over me. She will probably have dirt from head to toe as well as Brandon. I know you are probably not wearing your most important clothing anyway, but you do want them to be clean. When we hike I am usually in work out attire, or jeans and a tee. I am not entirely upset if they get ruined, but I do want to avoid it. Below are some tips I have for cleaning your clothes after a hike, or trip outdoors. 









I hope this helps you not only have clean clothes, but helps you get out there and live free and clear. A little dirt never hurt anyone!

How do you live free and clear? You can find all® free clear detergent and all® free clear Mighty Pacs®at your local Sam's Club.
