All About the Sleeves {Affordable Tops}

Sleeves. Something that I thought its sole purpose was to keep my arms covered up has turned into my style obsession as of late. Now when I'm shopping for tops the first thing I check for is the sleeve detail because it just makes a top THAT much more fun! Today I wanted to round up some cool sleeved tops to spice up your wardrobe (you'll recognize four of those that I have styled here on my blog). And because I'm always thinking about y'all's budget (like I do mine), I have kept these well below $100! But hurry because I noticed some were low in stock, so pick them up while you can, or simply enjoy how I styled some of them.

Fun Frilly Sleeves

This year I was totally distracted with mommy duties to plan a birthday celebration, but over the weekend I ended up rounding up my close family for a low key lunch! To coordinate with the low key festivities, I wore jeans and this fun frilly sleeved top from Tobi paired with these cute accessories: these black and white dangly earrings that complemented the off the shoulder top, and a pop of color via this new gorgeous lip color I received from Pixi last week that matched my Libby Edelman heels.

Laced Up Sweater

Sweater weather has finally descended on San Diego (my apologies to the rest of the country that is freezing) and I've been taking full advantage by wearing sweater after sweater as you can see in my last few blog posts. Us San Diegans literally have to take advantage of colder days because the weather will throw in a Summer day in the middle of Winter! Anywhoooo... what keeps drawing me into these sweaters are cool details that make them interesting and takes them out of the basic category 😉. The one I have styled in this post is no different!

How to Slay in a Chunky Sweater

Happy Monday! I recently posted a sneak peek of this look on Instagram with the caption "mommies can slay too" and loved the comments that I wanted to elaborate... Currently I'm still breastfeeding my son around the clock, my body is still going back to "normal" and since I'm on maternity leave, the majority of my time is spent in a fuzzy robe and gym clothes SO when I get the opportunity to glam up, I take it! Gosh, it feels so good to put make up on and dress up!! It reminds me that just because I'm a mom now it doesn't mean I can't have fun with make up and clothes, granted time is more limited now so I'm becoming a pro at doing my makeup with the quickness 😼

Now about the Outfit...


Baby's Newborn Photoshoot & Baby 1 month update

These pictures were taken when Baby O was only 2 weeks old (which was over a month ago!) by the very talented photographer Cassie from Cassema Photography. I remember this day, my husband and I were 2 weeks into our new life as parents filled with sleep deprivation, panic at every unfamiliar baby sound, still in disbelief that he was OUR creation and trying to figure the baby out. Cassie obvi knew what she was doing, she came over, set up in our living room and we waited patiently until baby was fed and sleepy to mold his little body into these cute little poses! All of these were taken in one session, I love that she did different backgrounds and props!

My Go-To Postpartum Uniform

Happy Monday! Today I wanted to give you a peek into what my go-to postpartum uniform is since it's all I have been wearing these days! Leggings and a tunic were especially essential right after giving birth because my body was changing drastically and fast, plus comfort is key (I even wore maternity leggings for the first couple of weeks which I have linked below for all the mommies to be). I topped the look with a moto jacket because moto jackets just make everything cooler, right? Plus, I have found that moto jackets are becoming timeless and are good investment pieces. I bought this one more than a year ago and it's still such a staple in my wardrobe.

I literally wear this or some variation of this combo for baby's doctor's appointments, quick runs to the grocery store, errands or when the hubby watches the baby and allows me to escape for a couple of sanity hours (heh heh).

And let's not forget the baby! His little feet make an appearance in this post and I must say he was so well-behaved while my hubby took these pics!



Neutral Colored Winter Outfit

Welcome to the first blog post of 2018 and also what was my first blog photoshoot post-baby! As I mentioned in my 2018 blog goals, getting back to my personal style blog posts has been on my list! I mentioned to my husband that blogging has been therapeutic during this time where I'm always at home taking care of the baby day after day and he was so supportive in us making this a mini outing so I could take pictures *tear*
