A sweet mama from susiescustom, who will be features on the blog within the next week, asked me what I am going to be putting on the blog? And I told her exactly how I felt, in any direction the readers take it. I already love this blog so much but I want to keep you guys happy and reading. So what direction will it be going in? Only the future can tell. Maybe someone wants a good recipe one week. I won’t hesitate to share one of my favorites! Or someone wants to know what it is like married to a solider. And I will gladly tell you. This really can go as far as the readers let it! Without you I am basically writing a journal. So I hope you continue to read and continue to love what I post. If not let me know! We can switch it up! Have some fun with it (: there are endless possibilities!
Today we ventured to my favorite store, Target!
And what little boy doesn’t love batman and superman! And I know there are little girls out there that would love it too! I didn’t get the whole collection but I convinced him we needed two of them! Job well done!
Another must have for fall! Sweaters! Cardigans, pull overs, hoodies, any type I absolutely love! Target has some great ones right now and so reasonably priced!
Two of my favorites I found! I clearly need to come back without my husband. You know men!
And I found this set for the littles! OMG can I have another little baby right now please. I about cried when they didn’t have hurleighs size! Totally sad about it!
I am so happy that it is starting to get cooler out. Fall outfits are my absolute favorite! Don’t get me wrong summer is so fun with all the bright colors but I am a sucker for fall colors, cardigans, and hats. Todays outfits of the day include some of my favorite items and I will include a little something about one of my all time favorite brands! Here we go (:
We just got this shirt in the mail today! Ah and I am already in love. Totally regretting not getting it for Beni too. Mind you I had already picked out outfits and had them photographed when this arrived. Change of plans LOL. It comes from a great company called Camp Wolf. Find them on IG here: http://web.stagram.com/n/campwolf/ They will be coming out with a whole new fall collection and I am soooo excited!

Don’t be afraid to mix colors. Everyone for as long as I can remember told me blacks and browns don’t go together. Psh. They’re nuts! And have to love a little pop of color!
He is so obsessed with these moccasins its ridiculous. When he first saw them he instantly put them on. His face lit up when I said he was wearing them today. And great thing about fall, he gets to wear long sleeves! He asks to wear a jacket aka anything long sleeve every day. He’s crazy.

Love greens for fall! Everything is changing colors so they really pop! And every one asks where I get skinny jeans from. Secret. I get them at all the normal places, I just shop in the girls section! Beni is super skinny and they work perfect!
Now for a staple in our wardrobe. I have decide to post about this brand because you will be seeing them in our OOTD probably almost every day. One of my favorite brands. And the creator. She’s great too!
I never knew about Freshly Picked until I got really into IG. Which is crazy because they are out of Utah. I have very quickly filled the boys closet with them. They are perfect for your little of all ages. Both my boys wear them and they are 1 and 3. With sizes ranging from 1-10 you will for sure find a pair that you’ll love.
Susan, creator of Freshly Picked, is beyond words amazing. I had the great privilege of meeting her in person and hanging out at the Freshly Picked headquarters and she is so humble and loving and just an all around great person. If you have not had a chance to check them out hurry and go now! You wont be disappointed. (: Link here: http://www.shop.freshly-picked.com or her IG at Freshlypicked.
As you can see I am a little obsessed. That’s not even all of them! But I am now noticing we need a little more color! Time to go get some new ones (: She has amazing leather and suede! What color do you think should be the next to add to our collection? (: Share here or on our IG! We may just get the one you suggest!
Until next time,
All you mommies out there, this one is for you. Today I will be featuring two of my go two accessories and their amazing creators! Every sunday will be just for you. I will include an outfit of the day and then will feature one or two amazing shops.
As you know from the previous outfit of the day post we had a birthday party today. I knew I would be chasing kids around so I kept it super casual. That does not mean you can’t look amazing! I went with my go to jeggings and a baggy white tee. Simple yet classic. You can never go wrong with basics.
Jeggings | Bohme
Top | Cotton On
Sandals | Tilly’s
Earrings & Necklace | Featured Shops!
Now let’s get to the good stuff. The first amazing shop I will be featuring makes an item I have been searching for for quite some time. Ever since I had kids I have wanted a mommy necklace. Sure there are plenty out there, but nothing really caught my eye. I knew I wanted something basic but still fabulous. Something I could wear with everything. And I am happy to say I found the perfect necklace.
I first came across Brin and Bell on IG. If you don’t follow her you should. I saw a few pictures and they really caught my eye. I finally checked out her etsy and saw it. The perfect mommy necklace. And she had Hurleigh and Bentleigh’s initials as a demo necklace! That never happens. I knew from then on it was meant to be. So because I was so indecisive I just stalked her IG and etsy for a while, looking back at the necklace from time to time. I knew I had to have it.
I purchased the H and the B and she gifted me the heart which was totally sweet of her. It really gave it that little something extra. I wear them layered but you can mix and match. Wear the heart between the letters or just the heart if your feeling like just a little something. Luckily she lived about an hour and a half away from me so not only was I getting an amazing necklace but I got to meet an amazing mama too. Lindsay is one of the nicest woman I have met. She answered all my questions and made my purchase so easy. I knew I was getting a great product but the necklace in person is so beautiful. It’s simple, dainty, but still has that eye catching quality.
Every mama needs one! They would make great gifts too! Check out her etsy here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/brinandbell
The next accessory is something I am crazy about. If you don’t know about button earring your missing out! I am obsessed and that is putting it lightly. Gigi, creator of Littlebigfabric, has quickly become an amazing friend of mine. She is such a talented lady! And one of the nicest people you will ever meet. She has amazing designs and is always pushing to find something new. There is at least one pair in her shop that everyone will love…unless your me there are many!
My favorite pair from her is Harper. I have them in both colors, I told you obsessed LOL. I love them so much I wore them during our family pictures. They are simple and one of my favorite colors, TEAL! Im sensing a theme here, simple. But really you can dress these up or down.
She has recently started a new venture over at Littlebigfabric, LBF Love Bag. This month it includes a cute cell phone cover and matching earrings! A girls best friends, her cell phone and jewelry. Every month she will offer a bag with different items in there and a Littlebigfabric custom piece! And it is only $30!! Check it out here: http://littlebigfabric.storenvy.com/products/2210358-september-love
She is always coming out with new designs so make sure to follow her on IG at Littlebigfabric and check out her store here: http://www.storenvy.com/stores/81658-little-big-fabric
I hope you enjoyed the first two of many featured shops! Make sure to visit them and show them some love! I will leave you with the Bahl Babies (:
So today we have a birthday party to go to. Which will include playing outside, hot dogs, and cake. Spells disaster for a great outfit! But never fail. We’ll just wear black (: We paired a basic pair of jeggings with a basic tee. And tip, roll the sleeves! It will take a basic tee up a notch! And of course we paired them with our favorite moccasins, Freshly Picked! Can’t go wrong.
I do many things. Stay at home mom, wife, teacher, nurse, student, part-time designer, and full-time lover of fashion. From the time I was little I knew I would be a big time designer. Well I am not a big time designer. Rather a small time designer, working out of my craft room, making children’s clothes. And I couldn’t have asked for a better life. I never wanted children, sad to say I know. But once I had them…well you moms know. Your world gets flipped upside down and it was AMAZING!
Two boys. Boy oh Boy. They are wild, crazy, and challenging. And the most challenging part is not the crying or the fits. It was dressing them. It’s obvious that stores do not cater to little boys. It was hard. With Bentleigh I will admit 90% of his clothes came from Carters because that is all I knew. The other 10% were Hurley. And really that was it. I was handed the challenge and failed miserably.
When Hurleigh was born I knew it had to change. And thanks to my p.i.c Lexi it did. And fast. From then on I was introduced to amazing brands. Freshly Picked, 32&Elm, LovedbyHannahandEli, Mima, Passive Juice Motel…. The list goes on and on. And from then on out our fashion days got a lot better! And you know what. I did it all on a budget.
I always get asked where I get my boys clothes from so from that came this! A blog just for you. A blog to help you find deals and style your kids for less. Cause lets face it, we all love a good deal! Every day I will post outfits of the day granted we go out, style advice, any deals I find, and of course I will not forget about the girls of all ages!
So read around, post suggestions, check out our IG, stay and make yourself at home. Cause I may have just found my passion and we’ll be here for as long as you let us!
