Trend Spin Linkup- Summer Style

#romper, Skirt, Summer fashion, trend linkup

Hey Y’all!

Summer is here and so are the hot temperatures especially in the South. Texas gets hotter and hotter and summers tend to last a bit longer than usual.

So I’m finding it hard to find pieces other than shorts and a tee. So thankful for maxi dresses and rompers.

#summerfashion, #romper, #trend, maxiskirt

Romper: Ross (Sleeve less Option, Similar , Love the color on this one, with an eyelet top)

Sandals: No longer available (Similar and on sale!!, I need to go back for these)

We took a short trip to the beach last month and I went on a quick trip to my go to stores to find a few dresses or rompers and I found this beauty!!

I love it and I’m secretly looking for more styles and patterns!

I love that it’s super versatile! It’s the perfect outfit for any mom. I can bend down to pick up my toddler in the middle of a tantrum without any problem and still look fashionable¬†enough for a day out on the town.

And guys I promised¬† I’m looking for an at home tanning lotion or spray or something to make me look a bit summer ready! #pastywhite #neverinstyle

I’m excited to join Laura and Erin in their weekly Trend Spin Linkup and I hope you can join us too.

Did you hear?! Fall is coming and thats next week.
Around here we love fall. Everything that comes with fall, the weather, the clothes, the activities, and the sales! If you love Gap and Old Navy as much as we do you better run to check out everything the have. Most of their toddler items are half off. Yes, you read right half off.
Let’s check out some sale items that we are loving! When we shop for Bella we usually buy one regular price item that we can mix and match with many of the ones on sale, but with this sale there is really no need except a dress or two for church. 
Check out the yellow leggings and the white button up shirt with the blue sweater on top :)….
In.love.

Learning to love yourself.

A few weeks ago I got contacted by an amazing brand to show their products, basically sponsoring me to wear their clothing.
I was a bit surprised.

We are in contact with a few children’s brands who want my beautiful daughter to wear their items, but that girl is beautiful, me in the other hand I’m super conscious and I would even say I lack self confidence to do such a thing.
  I talked to my husband about it and decided to do it!
I followed through with the message and let it be, thinking that they were not going to send me anything.
Little did I know that a week later I received their item. Insert the cute emoji shock face!
Their product fit like a glove, it was amazing and the fabric is super silky, but I’ll leave the actual review for another post.
As I looked for ways to style it and wear I started to feel better about the opportunity I was given. Took the pictures, but I critiqued them up and down.
They were, and are good quality pictures and are beautiful but I didn’t feel confident enough to show them.

I can even go on and tell you my exact thought when I saw them. “I’m not a fashion blogger, nor even close to being my girl Laura who can wear a trash bag and look amazing doing so”
One thing that comes with being a blogger is posting selfies and outfit pictures.
I knew this the day I decided to start this and I was opened to new the new things this adventure would bring, but when the time came I failed to do so.
 A few days passed and as I looked at my daughter and her confident self, I looked at how much she feels and looks as beautiful as ever, I know I biased, and for a second thought about this.
Do I want to give her this example? Is this what I want to show her about her body? She has many of my genes and do I really want to pass my insecurities on to her. Even at an early age they see us. They copy our every move, our every action, and I don’t ever want her to feel insecure about anything.
This is something that as women we go through and we battle it from being a teen to adulthood, and is something that I may not put an end today but I want to do it little by little and step by step.

I want to feel good about who I am and feel confident enough to post a so called selfie and an outfit I loved.

I want to be me, and my true self ,is self conscious but I don’t want to lack of confidence to defy me. To stop me, to suppress all that I can be and then I had my “aha” moment.
The God of the heavens, the creator of everything beautiful created me, simple and plain old me.
He created me beautiful.
He called me His and as my faith leads me to believe He made me beautiful.

Today I invite you today to show yourself, your true you, to take that picture, to wear that outfit or do whatever it may be that has been holding you back

Think of that little person that looks up to you. Think about our creator we are his special work. So YES you are beautiful and so am I.
So go show it off. Show God’s work.

My pregnancy was something that I had dreamt about for my whole life. Something that many time we thought it wouldn’t happen but God is good and we got the happiest news that we were expecting a sweet little girl.

It honesty was one of the happiest times ever, but things got heavy and fast.
The cream one, rolled up to show my belly!
As a 5 foot girl, I had back problems and when the belly started to weigh a little more my back started to hurt.  I tried everything, sitting up straight and every belly band on the market, and then I remember a this post I saw on Natalie from At home with Natalie a while back and I went to target.com and bought 2 Blanqi Belly support tank. One in cream and one in black and mamas I LIVED in them my whole entire pregnancy.
It saved my life and my back.

Stripes and More

Hey Guys happy Tuesday!
Today we are linking  up to one of my favorite bloggers Laura from Walking Memphis in Highheels.
Todays theme is STRIPES!!
Yes, the classic piece and something we particularly love, but since this weekend was such a rush for us there was no time for me, the mama, to do my hair with a 17 month old running around the restroom and “wanting” to play with toilet water so our first link up will be featuring the star of this blog Bella.
 
Dress is no longer available (Gymboree)  / Shoes / headband
 
Next week’s theme is Free Day so I may join my little fashion diva for this one. 
This little girl has more style in one inch of her little body than me in my 5ft body!
Of course our Lambie had to make it in to the shot since she is with us everywhere we go.
I’m in love with her dress, and the fact that it has a pretty cut out in the back makes it even better in our icky summer weather.
Forgive the wet stain on her dress. We are still in the stage that is enamored by watching the milk come out of her bottle.
Also, I bought some fall essentials.
2 tanks in dark gray and dark pink and a blanket scarf.
