My Favorite Store

This post is not sponsored at all. In fact I am sure they don't even know that I am doing this post. But Madison and Sixth has become my new go to boutique. They have so many cute tops there. I really love that they have cute tops that come in a variety of colors. Lately they have had buy three items get one free. So if you haven't heard of them look them up. You will not be disappointed.

This outfit is super chill and super comfortable. I usually have been hanging out in jeans and tee shirt. It has been so hot. When I want to dress up a tee I add a cute kimono. I love this one. They have a blue one I want as well...Ugh that store.

Children's Miracle Network Hospitals

Before Aria came to us I have always loved children. But after having her I have a softer spot for kids. Having that mothering love, wanting every child to be healthy and happy. It absolutely breaks my heart to hear about these kids going through illnesses that will take an adult down. And they do it with such an amazing attitude.

Since the early 1980's Children's Miracle Network have raised over 5 billion dollars for 170 children's hospitals across the U.S. Helping kids who are suffering from all types of illnesses. For example meet Grady. Grady was diagnosed at the age of 8 with Acute Undifferentiated Leukemia. Although he was to face a few years of treatment he never let it defeat him. He never wanted to think about his illness, he just wants to live his life and have fun. He was invited to a BBQ with Adam Sandler and dreams of being in the NFL where he can make a ton of money and buy a big house. What an amazing kid. I can't even imagine what his mom had to go through in watching her boy suffer. Thanks to CMN they underwrite medical procedures for kids in need and help fund things such as music therapy, and counseling for these sweet children.

Walmart and Pampers have teamed up to donate $200,000 to CMNH in June of 2015. Visit Walmart.com/cmnh to make a much needed donation of your own. Every dollar counts. Your support helps provide 32 million patient visits for 10 million kids every year.


Also P&G are giving away a $25 Walmart gift card to one of my readers. So please enter by sharing your CMN story below. What story inspired you? Everyone of these kids has me inspired!

Vintage and a heel click

When I first saw this shirt I did the high pitched girlish scream. It reminded me of a top from ModCloth. It just had the vintage wallpaper feeling. I just fell in love with it. I love the cut, the colors and how many ways I can style it. I wore this shirt while I was preggers and I am still wearing it like crazy.

Do you ever have one of those tops that you just want to wear over and over and over?

Oh ya and I was in a weird mood and decided to end the shoot with a heel click..I really am a nerd most days. I have come to terms with that.

White Dress, New Me

So post baby body has been rough. Although I am back to my before baby weight my body is just not the same. So this weekend Brandon and I made a pact. We are going to go cold turkey and hop on the clean eating train. No more sweets, no more over eating carbs. More fruits and veggies. So these pictures are the last pictures before my clean eating journey. Hopefully I will get to see a difference soon. I am excited to get healthy and get my body to a place where I feel more comfortable with. I want to be around for as long as possible for Aria. And I know this sounds incredibly vain but I want to be able to take Aria to the pool without her being embarrassed, or take her shopping and share clothes when she's older. So not only do I need to eat better for myself but for her as well. Get her on a healthy start to life. So goodbye old Cayli! I am ready for a change.

Father's Day

I hope you all had a great Father's Day. I say this all the time but I love spending time with my family. We get together every Sunday for dinner and it is the best time of the week.

I don't know where I would be without Brandon in my life. He is the cutest Dad. He loves Aria so much and I have no doubts in my mind they are going to be buddies. They already gang up on me. Aria is so lucky to have such a wonderful Dad. He is always there to play with her, talk to her, read to her. He changes so many diapers, gets up at night sometimes with her. I cannot tell you how spoiled I am.

I also have a wonderful Dad. I am so glad Aria will have the relationship with her Dad as I do with mine. We are so lucky to have so many wonderful Father figures in our lives. Happy Father's Day guys. We sure love you.

Heat wave

Holy heat wave! It is super hot out. I have been loving it! It makes our nightly walks a little warmer but it is gorgeous!

I have been living in shorts and shift dresses. This dress could be a little longer. I might have to alter it somehow it was a bit shorter than I wanted. I would not be able to bend over and pick up Aria or really do anything. But I do love how cool and comfortable it is. Might even be good for a swimsuit cover up.

My Favorite Tee

So I love tee shirts. I live in tee shirts. I love it even more when I can find a blousey tee. I bought this tee a week or so ago and I LOVE it. One of my favorite tops I have ever owned. It has the perfect cool fabric, it's really cute, and stripes are so on trend right now. I can pair this top in so many ways.

Blue and yellow to me are very summer. I love how they look together. And of course I adore these heels. So to me this is the perfect, stylish mom on the go outfit. I am wearing super comfy but chic boyfriend jeans. Which makes this outfit more casual.
