The perfect skirt.












What I'm Wearing:

Top: Old  || Skirt: c/o Tobi || Shoes: Charolette Russe || Necklace: Charming Charlie|| 

Hey Guys, 

When I first received this skirt it terrified me. It looked like it was going to be way too long and awkward. The second I tried this beautiful skirt on, I fell in love. I really wanted to pair this with a gorgeous lace top. For the life of me I could not find one I loved, that would do this skirt justice. I am still on the hunt and I will find one. My second option was this beautiful mint top. I am a sucker for the mint and peach combo. This skirt is not only a classic gorgeous cut, it is a thick and sturdy material. Of the three pieces I received from Tobi, this is by far my most favorite. I think this skirt is killer on all body types. This is such a classy piece to style. You can wear it to events, church, meetings, work, I usually say you can dress this up and dress this down, but you can't. This is a special piece that won't mix well in the casual department. Tobi has some other amazing skirts here and here, I am wanting to purchase next. After feeling the fabric of this skirt, the cut and the quality I am a forever fan. 

You can always add a belt around the waist to add more glamour. I think a white or gorgeous lavender thin waist belt would really add to this outfit. 

How would you style this skirt? Which pieces from Tobi are you interested in? Leave your comments below I would love to see what's in your shopping cart!

Blue Tee












What I'm Wearing:

Top c/o Tobi || Jeans: AE || Flats: Forever 21 || 

Hey Guys,

Hope your week is going well. My family has been overwhelmed with all the support and love for my brother. We are so lucky to be surrounded with such an amazing support system. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers!

This outfit has been my go to these past few days. This tee is perfect for day to day wear. I have been pairing this with my trusty converse and boyfriend jeans. Today I wanted to actually put myself together. I went with a cute pair of loafer flats, a cute necklace and my favorite skinny jeans. This tee is a cute lightweight top. Perfect for the 80 degree weather we have had this weekend. This would look really cute paired with a red stripe skirt and converse. Perfect for the Fourth of July. I love the twist detail in the front of this shirt. It makes it easy to tuck in or provides a cute detail if you want to leave it out. I would size down they are a bit over sized. I am obsessed with tee shirts, and I am so happy to have this tee in my collection. 

There are some more adorable pieces I have in my cart now. This top (here) and this dress (here). What do you want to put in your cart?

Little White Dress ft. TOBI






















What I'm Wearing:

Dress c/o Tobi || Sandals: Target || Necklace: Charming Charlie || 


Hey Guys, 

I hope you are doing well. It has been more than crazy here on our side of the woods. My brother was rushed to the Hospital the other night, he had a brain aneurysm. It was really scary and heartbreaking all at the same time. So pardon the zombie mode I am in.

This dress is everything for summer. It is light and breezy, I think it would actually make a perfect swim cover up. I think a little white dress should be in everyone's closet. If you planned on wearing this out for the night you could add a cute pair of colored pumps. Or like me if your out by the pool, or running around during the day throw on a cute pair of gladiator sandals. I would advise you to size up with these dresses if you want them longer. The pockets are kind of low for my liking and they add a weird bulge to the sides, but all in all this dress is pretty perfect.

I am new to Tobi, this was my first experience with their clothing. Their site has a lot of really adorable pieces. They are not an inexpensive site, but they are also not super pricey, they fall in the middle. If you sign up with your email address you get 50% off your first order, you also get free shipping on orders over $50. That is a good deal if your looking to try them out. I was very pleased with the three items I received. 

What items for the (site) catch your eye?

What would you rather wear dresses (here) or rompers (here).

White and Denim










What I'm Wearing:

Top:(similar) || Jeans || Shoes || 

Hey Guys,

It has been a hot minutes since I did an outfit post. Brandon is my photographer and he has been slammed at work. I am excited to be getting back into posting outfits. I have found some cute little boutiques that are inexpensive and have some really cute clothing I can't wait to get them in and see how the quality is. 

This outfit is a simple chic look. A more dressed up version of a tee shirt and jeans. Add a pair of pumps and your ready for a night out, add a cute pair of sandals and your good to run around, shop, or chase the kids at a nearby park. I am so sad this top is sold out. I almost wish I had a backup for when Aria throws spaghetti on it or juice. I know it will happen eventually. 

A good pair of jeans are everything. What I look for in a pair is comfort. I want the jeans to move well and have a little give to them. I don't want to be stiff and sucked into an uncomfortable pair. I love the American Eagle Jeggings. They are seriously the cutest and best jeans for anyone. I think they are the perfect chic mom jean. 

I would love to see your take on the classic tee shirt and jeans. Leave me a link or share a pic on my Facebook. 

Thanks Guys!

Chambray Jumpsuit









Hey Guys, 

I hope you all had a great weekend. I always look forwards to Mother's Day. Another excuse to hang out with my family and spoil our sweet mom's. 

This sweet little girl makes motherhood so much fun. I love seeing her grow and learn. She is absolutely hilarious. I love her sweet and funny little personality. She is going to be a goofball I can already tell.

I love having Fridays off. It gives Aria and I the opportunity to go and play. Usually I have a camera attached to me, I love photography. I would love to do it professionally one day. In true mom from I have to take pictures of every little thing Aria does. We were just playing outside enjoying the warm weather before this week of rain happened. This was quite a day for us. She decided she wanted to bring me a dead bird. It was pretty gross. We used as much soap and Purell as we could find. 

I was taking pics of her and she decided to crouch in the bushes, pooping. TMI I know but all I could think of was that part in Bridesmaids when they are in the bridal shop after the Indian food. I could watch that movie everyday. 

Hopefully the rain will let up so I can get some more outfit posts!

DIY Floral Initial

Hey Guys,

I have started the process of making decorations for Aria's second birthday. I am huge into planning early, because I like to have everything done a month prior so I can focus on the day.

I found this adorable floral initial on pinterest. I knew it would suit my theme perfectly. It could also double as home decor afterwords.



Things you will need:

-cardboard
-letter to trace or you can free hand it, or a letter like this one from a craft store.
-sharp blade
-flowers
-hot glue gun
-frame (optional)



Sketch out the letter. If you are setting it in a frame make sure it is sized as such. Cut out letter with the sharp blade. Or if you bought a letter already cut skip this step



Start arranging and gluing down flowers. I just scattered them out and glued them on at random.
This will be pretty time consuming. It took me a few hours to complete. It really is worth it. You can use these for weddings, showers, parties, home decor, etc. They are so cute and so fun. Of course you can always make them with fresh flowers, they just won't keep as long.







I would love to see how yours turned out. Leave me a link or a picture below!

Toddler Meal Plan

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #MyLIttleRemedies #CollectiveBias




When I started to transition Aria to solids I had no clue what to feed her. I wanted her to be on a healthy diet but still maintain her growth properly. There were no resources on meal ideas for toddlers. I read books where they tell you to make sure they are on a healthy diet, or to check with your nutritionist on a healthy lifestyle. I don't have a nutritionist. I don't know many people that can afford one. I researched high and low for things you should incorporate into a toddlers diet. This is what I learned.

Breakfast:

The most important meal of the day. Try to incorporate proteins, and fruits. Aria loves eggs. I try to change it up from eggs, to Gluten free cereal every so often. Adding cottage cheese is also another great protein source if you don't have time to cook eggs.






Lunch:

Lunch needs to be easy. You have been chasing your toddler around and make it easy on yourself. They don't need to be gourmet meals. I like to make things like low carb pizza, or a almond butter and jelly sandwich. Something you can toss in the oven for 10 minutes and not have a lot of prep work. You can even do left overs from last nights dinner. Keep it simple.




Dinner:

This will be your toughest meal. You are tired. You are cooking for everyone. If you are making a steak dinner that might be hard for a toddler to eat or process I make something I can easily prep with my meal. If we are having steak and salad I will throw some chicken or lean beef on the grill for her. Make things easy on yourself, free up some time to spend with those little ones.




Snacks:

I am guilty of not always giving Aria super healthy snacks like carrot sticks and celery. We do often offer her veggies. Some days she will get chips, or multi grain crackers. She loves pretzels and fruit snacks. If you are a super parent you can make your own fruit snacks with the many recipes pinterest offers. We like the organic real fruit juice, fruit snacks. I have also included a print out of easy and healthy snack ideas below.



Sick Days:

Of course you will encounter those awful days where your little one is not interested in food. I keep Aria hydrated with the Little Remedies® Probiotic Plus Electrolytes. A great family trusted brand that is safe for you little one. Ideal for keeping your babies digestive system in check and well hydrated. Which is important for even non sick days. Little Remedies® Probiotic Plus Electrolytes contain cultures and electrolytes that are key for your child's health. It has been the only product I have been able to find that packs probiotics and electrolytes into one little packet.*This statement has not been evaluated by the food and drug administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. Not to mention it is gluten free, and free of artificial dyes and preservatives.
From now to May 14 2016 when you buy Little Remedies® Probiotic Plus Electrolytes you get a $5 gift card. 

 Keep things easy for your little one. Soup and crackers are easy on the body and soothing. Smoothies are another great option. Think of things you want when you are sick, or just not feeling yourself.
