The coziest Nordstrom Cardi

 Can you believe my sweet little Holty is almost three months? Where did the time go?! Although this Mama isn't too upset about getting into more of a rhythm and schedule with his sleeping and schedule. Which really is perfect timing for school starting soon!

I am gradually adding some warmer pieces to my wardrobe as fall approaches. EEEKK can you believe fall is almost here?! And it's coming whether I am ready or not! lol So in an attempt to push myself to face the facts, I wore this INCREDIBLY cozy sweater from Nordstroms to church (thank goodness it was a cooler day). And how do I know this sweater is not just cozy to me? Well lets just say the whole family could not keep their hands off me! I felt quite loved in it thats for sure!

Hope you enjoy these cute shots of the sweater, oh and of course my baby!!! AND who else did I convince to join me?! Le hubs! yay! and he be lookinnnn FINE! lol

Our front room update

Ive been slowly updating our front room this whole summer and I finally finished! My goal was to make it brighter by removing most of the black and dark colors. I also brightened it by adding this large white rug from Wayfair that is my FAVORITE rug in the house! It is a true white, which I love, and it is sooo crazy soft!

You can also check out a full tour of this room on my YouTube channel! Make sure and check it out!

Check out what else I added below.....


I added this blush mongolian rug from Cost plus world market to our reading nook.

I also added these blush curtains from Nordstroms to the dining room.

I got this super chunky knit blanket off of etsy! 
And I am OBSESSED with these pink Nate Berkus chairs from Target!


You can find these S chairs here!
Hope you enjoyed!

Nordstrom sale look, great for fall transition

I love the juxtaposition of this look. The soft and floral dress with the thigh high Stuart Wietzman boots!
 This dress is UNDER $30 and a total steal! 
And this target cross body bag is under $30 as well and sold out super quick but now it's back in stock!

Don't wait on these if you are thinking about them because they are going back up in price soon!

Hope you enjoy this look! xo

A flare to remember

First off I cannot believe how big my Stella Grace is getting! It literally feels like I had her in my tummy just yesterday, and now she is talking to me in full sentences. I have to admit she's been a little fragile lately and I think it might be due to the adjustment of no longer being the baby. I think all the kids have gone through the adjustment of having a new member to the family but in their own way. And to my great pleasure they have all been completely obsessed with Holt. 
For Stella she has been a little more readily to cry which isn't like her, and it also may be a bit due to our hectic schedules.

We shot these pictures right before church, which was a genius idea because we were still fresh and happy rather than the reverse of hungry and needing a nap! lol

Stella is wearing these adorable flares made by You Me & P and they are so stinkin cute and comfy! She absolutely loved them! 

For my look...

Black and white look with Nordstrom sale boots

I have lusted over the Stuart Weitzman thigh high boots forever! They make your legs look a mile long, SUPER flattering!  So when they went on sale for the Nordstrom sale I jumped at the chance to scoop them up! 
I am not surprised at all by how fast they sold out, so I have linked a few different options that are a part of the sale as well. I already have these Steve Madden thigh high boots ordered in both colors because they are amazing as well (for a fraction of the price!!) 
These Marc Fisher ones are on sale for $149 and come in 3 colors! 

Thigh highs are definitely a favorite of mine for the transition from summer to fall, the whole jean shorts combo is HOT HOT!!!!

Sweater (similar one and on sale!)
Kut shorts (such a good length)

Boots (similar) here, here, here ALL ON SALE!

My Top 10 (clothing and shoe) Picks for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Okay people it's that time of year!!! Whoop the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is here and I think it's the best one yet!
I narrowed my picks down (after much turmoil and nervous sweating Lol) to these top 10 for clothing and shoes. I will do another post for beauty and home as well but I thought I would focus on just clothes and shoes for this post. I have really surprised myself this year by staying away from dark colors. Call it after pregnancy hormones or just my love of summer but I am ALL about the light colors, Ahem mostly grey, tan, and PINKS!

I am all about pieces that I can wear multiple times in multiple ways. I try and stay away from any "one hit wonders" 
Let me know what you think of my picks!


Grommet Sleeve Pullover by Love By Design


Blouson Sleeve Sweater by Leith


Madolee Over the Knee Boot by Vince Camuto



Elevated Over the Knee Boot by Stuart Weitzman
Trefoil Crewneck Sweatshirt by Adidas Originals 


Tie Front Pullover by Hinge 

Lace Up Sweatshirt Dress by Socialite

Fresh Flowers delivered!

Is there really anything better than getting things delivered straight to your door? For this stretched thin mama, I say no! You name it, I'll take it! Especially my favorite things like fresh flowers! 

Which is why I jumped at the chance to team up with bouqs.com to offer all of my readers 20% off! All you do is enter my code XOLEAH when you checkout! They have so so much variety and it is such a special "pick me up", whether for a friend or loved one or just to treat yourself!

What's in my hospital bag

With just over a week until my due date I figured it was time to share whats in my hospital bag!
I am not one to pack the kitchen sink. I like to be a bit more thoughtful and not pack too many non-essentials. So I am hoping with my experience I can give some mamas good ideas for what they might need. Just remember the hospital usually provides most of what you need so everything else is just gravy on top! 

In this picture I am showing my LV keepall which is what all of my things are in. The pink bag is from Fawn Design and its for baby and anything extra. 


I haven't listed every single thing I have packed but I have shared my favorite things.

Maternity Photo Shoot

Hello Luvs! I am sooo excited to share this amazing photo shoot with you! Can you believe this is my fourth pregnancy and this is the first time I am doing this?! So crazy to believe! And since this will be my last, I am trying to really live it up! One of the best parts of this pregnancy is being able to share it with my kids. It has truly made it that much more special. Thats why I knew I had to include them and of course le hubby in this shoot as well! 

The white dress I am wearing for most of the shots is from Fillyboo 
And the black dress with the long train is from KKB maternity 
I used basic flower crowns from Forever 21 and added flowers from Joanns to make them one of a kind!
