All things Leopard

Happy Tuesday luvs! Today I am sharing all things leopard! I tend to add a lot more leopard into my wardrobe in the fall. It's a great way to add pattern to any look. It also brings those warm colors, which I know we all gravitate towards this time of year. 
When it comes to the actual leopard pattern itself, I do not discriminate. I love ALL shapes and sizes. They are all so fun and unique! And do I ever wear more than one leopard piece at a time? YES! When wearing more than one leopard piece I try and use different patterns of it. For example  I would pair the cardi down bellow that has the large leopard print with one of the smaller print ones, such as the belt or shoes. I am showing some of my favorite leopard pieces bellow, I already have a few of them and the rest are in my cart. lol! 

1. This cardigan has the coolest large scale leopard pattern to it! I love that the sleeves are a little longer as well. Longer sleeves is something I look for in a cardigan, I love it for keeping my hands warm and the overall look of it is so cozy. 
2.  This belt is so cute with the gold hardware! Gold and leopard go so well together, warm on warm tones are everything. The small dot pattern is so fun and dainty as well!
3. A good leopard scarf is one of my favorite ways to wear this pattern. I guess I am a sucker for any cute scarf! lol it truly is such an easy way to layer. This one is so terribly cute and the price is just right.
4.  I have had my eye on this cute leopard bag for while now. It is such a classic shoulder bag! 
5. I am so crushing on this rug for the new house. I could literally put it in any room of the house and be happy. I am actually thinking it would be super cute in my entry or laundry room. Laundry room? YES! Laundry rooms need to be cute too, so much time spent there, you know?!
6.  I have these rainboots and wear them ALL the time! The picture above doesn't show the super cute seem up the back, which just pushes these over the top on the cuteness spectrum. Details on a piece really show you quality. 
7. I totally need this dress for a function I have coming up! I am loving the length of it for pairing it with booties in colder weather. And the length and little pouf to the sleeve are darling!
8. I get asked all the time about my laptop sleeve that I have on my laptop. I have had it forever but it has never gone out of style! This one isn't my exact one but I love it just the same. They have them for all sizes as well!
9. Leopard loafers are so so me! I wear mine all the time, the simplicity of just slipping them on and being so chic is a no brainer for me. I personally look for a pointed toe loafer, it elongates the look of your legs. 
10. I was daydreaming the other day of pairing emerald green pillows with this leopard pillow somewhere in our house. It's only $25, such a bargain!

7 easy looks for a busy mom on the go

I was trying to think of a post to do so I thought of something that I am looking for myself! I find myself needing inspiration for looks that I can just throw on for running around with my kids. I want to be comfortable but of course I still want to be cute AF! 
Each one of these looks I wore on a different day. I was doing a variety of things, from carpooling to shopping at the mall, to football practice. They all were perfect for every occasion and I still felt very "put together". 


Look #1 

You really can't go wrong with a cute sweater and jeans! I chose to go with a mustard/grey combo for this look, it is such a soft and warm color scheme, perfect for fall! If you are looking for SUPER flattering jeans, these are AMAZING. These are the kind that your make your booty look so good! I should know because the hubs can't keep his hands off me in them! Lol They fit true to size and I love that they are super soft and stretchy but also don't stretch out as you wear them. 
I chose to wear a camisole under this super cute wrap sweater so there would be a cute peek of interest at the neckline. The sweater is amazingly versatile and I am obsessed with this color for fall, mustard all the way! It fits true to size as well. I paired the look with these snake slides and I think its the perfect touch of pattern to my look, and the pointed toe makes it a little more "dressed up" feeling. 

Shoes  


Look #2

This is another sweater and jeans look. Like I said you can't go wrong! I chose this striped sweater that is under $40. Besides the stripes my favorite part is the balloon sleeves, balloon sleeves are so in right now! It runs true to size and I actually wore this sweater with a mini skirt and it worked perfectly with that as well. 
I chose a dark pair of jeans to really help the sweater be the focal point and these ones are super comfy. Comfort is key for a busy mom! 
These particular leopard slides are out of stock but I found some very similar ones that are on sale! Who says you can't mix patterns? I think leopard is such an easy way to add more pattern but is still very neutral at the same time. 



Look #3

Get used to seeing me in these amazing tops A LOT I wear them by themselves and they are also perfect for layering. I am always wondering what do I wear under this jacket, cardi or vest? Thats where these tops come in handy. The thermal texture, buttons, and tie at the bottom add just the right amount of interest without totally distracting you from another layer. Remember we aren't going for "busy"! 
I am shocked what a good deal I got for these camo jeans! They are comfy, true to size and have the perfect amount of "fading" to them. I feel like you can get away wearing these more than a strong camo pattern. 
These thong sandals I wore all summer long, I can't believe we are in mid October and the weather is still nice enough to wear them! Def got my money out of them, thats for sure!


Look #4 

These last looks I am really amping up the layering! Cute chunky hats and not super heavy jackets are a great way to start to transition to cooler weather. This jacket is under $30 and you would never know it! I love that the fabric is a little "stiff", so it makes it feel more structured and not "frumpy" looking. I also love that its a little longer too so you can even pair it with a pair of leggings. I suggest wearing the sleeves rolled up, because it is a bit oversized I like to do this so it doesn't overwhelm my frame. I wore it with a camo shirt underneath to keep my look a bit more cohesive. Introducing another color or pattern might have been too much.

Look #5

Okay this is my favorite look of them all! Probably because I am BEYOND obsessed with these boots! Living in Portland, a good pair of rain boots is a must, so when I saw these leopard ones I about flipped. They are definitely rain boots but they almost come across as just a cute knee high boot. I got stopped everywhere I went with people asking where I got them. I wore them with this thermal top again under my favorite vest. The tan color of the vest tied together the look with the tan of the boots. 
The sunglasses are under $30 and are sooo flattering! Perfect for every face shape!

Vest 


Look #6

Surprise, surprise camo again! lol I can't help myself! Camo and leopard, my bffs for sure! 
The day I wore this I was a hot mess with no makeup at all, hence the baseball cap. Such a perfect way to hide the dark circles under my eyes, lol! I am not even sure what the material of this hat is but it's so crazy soft!
For the overall look I went for pink and camo, the pink denim jacket keeps me from looking too "I just rolled out of bed" And the matching camo shoes pulls the coordination all together.

Look #7

I have talked about these leggings so much on my stories and have worn them so much I should probably be embarrassed. But yeah nope I'll continue to rock them with pride. They totally save me from looking too "bland". I want to stand out as a cute mom but in just the right way, you know?! lol
I paired them with this same pink LA hat and one of my fav workout tanks. I finished the look with these super white nike kicks. A cute pair of white sneakers is a wardrobe essential. I love wearing them with so many of my "athleisure" looks.

Our day at Seabrook

Hey luvs! So we just got back from our hunting trip on the coast of Washington and I thought I would share these snaps that we took in the cutest little town of Seabrook. It's honestly one of my favorite places because everything is just so darn cute. I am absolutely convinced that Hallmark needs to film a movie there ASAP! It really could not be more perfect! 

We didn't have a whole lot of time to spend there since the main point of the trip was to hunt. But it was so fun to spend the morning eating croissants, playing corn hole, and touring the local decor and toy shops. If you ever get the chance to go, do it! You won't regret it! One of my favorite things is just to walk the neighborhoods and get design inspiration because the houses are so unique! PLUS not to mention you can walk down to the beach and play in the sand and dip your toes in the water! Such a fun place to bing the whole fam! 

I linked our outfits in the scroll bar below. I am really loving linking this way. It just seems way more convenient! What do you think?

Current favorite lunch --- Healthy Tuna Salad, Stuffed Peppers

Hey Luvs! I have been making these "healthy tuna salad, stuffed peppers" quite a bit lately so I thought I would share the recipe with you! I used orange peppers this time and they are totally giving me all the fall vibes! Nothing like a hot lunch on a cool day!

Healthy Tuna Salad, Stuffed Peppers

2 Peppers
1 can of Tuna 
1 medium tomato diced
1 small onion diced 
3 stalks of celery diced
1 small can of black olives 
Olive oil (enough to coat ingredients)
Salt and Pepper (to taste, I always add a lot!)
Avocado (optional garnish when serving)

Preheat oven to 375. Cut 2 peppers in half. Place on cookie sheet face up and bake 20 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare filling by mixing all the other ingredients together in a large bowl. When Peppers are done, fill them with the mix. Press mix down inside the peppers to fit as much as mix as possible. Put back in 375 degree oven and cook for an additional 20 minutes. Optional... Serve with sliced avocado on top, sprinkled with salt and pepper. Viola! Super, yummy, healthy and easy!

Fall decor

For every season growing up, my mom would decorate the house accordingly. It truly made the seasons so special and we looked forward to what she would do. I cherish those memories so much, and I want to create that same feeling for my own children. It really is amazing how home decor can change your whole outlook and almost make things magical. Especially Christmas! But lets not get ahead of ourselves. lol! 
For this years fall decor, I decorated my "blogger" space in my parents house. I am so in love with this little corner and find it SO easy to decorate. Heres to small spaces and a neutral color pallet! So thats what I stuck too, a neutral color pallet, mostly tans and white with a hint of grey and pink.   

Hope you enjoy scrolling through these photos and scroll through the bottom bar to shop!
