Fall Transitions

Fall is coming. I can feel it. It might still be ridiculously hot here in Utah but I know it's coming! That or I'm just doing some serious wishful thinking. Probably that. I say it every year, fall is my favorite and around July 5th I'm craving it. I've started adding some transitional items into my closet so that the one day fall decides to surprise us, I'll be ready for it. 
I'm loving this kimono from PB&J Boutique, its a little heavier than all of my other kimonos so instead of it disappearing when it gets too cold, I can keep wearing it all fall and winter long! I love the detail in the design as well, gives you options to wear it with a lot of different looks. I'm so excited to try them out!
I'm also loving my new ankle booties that I found at Ross, of course! I definitely had my eye on a few pairs during the Nsale but even though they were all on sale, they still weren't in my budget so I was so excited when I came across these babies for an affordable price. I've been loving the cut out style on the ankle booties lately so I definitely grabbed them and ran -- straight to the cash register that is...

Are you ready to transition your closet to fall yet or am I just crazy? haha

Hope you have a great weekend!

Happy Friday y'all! It's always tough getting through the week after a holiday but we did it!! Go ahead and get yourself a donut. And a friendly reminder, Monday is 7/11 so you know what that means, free slurpees from 7/11! Woot Woot! Mark your calendars! A Coke and Cherry mixed slurpee was my number one pregnancy craving in case you were wondering. Such a delight. 

 Anywho, back to business, I am so excited because a friend of mine recently opened up an online shop called Darling Me Avenue! They've been up and running for just over a month now and it's so exciting! I can't wait to see how they grow! This shirt is from her shop and I'm not kidding when I say it has become one of my favorite shirts and that I wear it once a week, for real. It's so comfortable and the fit is perfect and I love the holes, which seems weird to say but it's true! I've been looking for a cute holey shirt for a while now and when I saw this one I just knew it was right. 

Make sure you check out Darling Me Avenue and follow them on Instagram so you can see the new items they're adding to the shop! She has some cute stripey and floral flowy things coming soon soooooo you'll want to keep up with them to see when they release! 

I hope you have such a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

 Happy Monday Loves! Hope you all had such a great weekend! We had a great time taking Nixon to the splash pad and for a walk up in the mountains and just spending time together! In past summers, I was always super busy with work and school so I felt like I spent the whole season inside and really wasn't that excited about it since I wasn't able to actually enjoy it. This summer has been completely different! Now that I'm done with school and am able to spend my days with my little guy, there is so much to experience! I love that we have so many fun local splash pads these days, they are such a fun free activity for everyone to enjoy! What are some things you other Utahans like to do with your kids during the summer?? I'm new to this so I'm always looking for new ideas for us!

 Nixon is almost 11 months old now and has 6 teeth and the last week I think he was probably getting another one somewhere because he was super ornery and he's usually a super happy guy. He wouldn't let me look of course, but he has been loving these new teething accessories we got from Mama & Little! They are literally the cutest teething necklaces and bracelets ever. These are from their Rose Luxe line and I love them so much! They are so stylish and I don't feel like I'm wearing a child's toy around my neck! The necklace I'm wearing is such a unique shape and has subtle marbling throughout and the bracelets are so cute and perfect for stacking. They're super flexible and babies love to bite on the texture and the best part is that they are all made of 100% food-grade silicone, are BPA and phthalate free and are dishwasher safe. I've also noticed that they help Nixon stay focused at feedings too, he has been all over the place lately and if I have my necklace on while I feed him he just plays with it instead of flailing around. So much nicer!

Look at those blue eyes! So sweet!

This little guy loves the camera! Such a ham!

 I have teamed up with Mama & Little and are offering you 20% off with code ARROWSANDAPRICOTS today through June 29th! Plus they already offer free shipping on all U.S. orders! Seriously, if you have a teething babe at home, take advantage of this! They are amazing! We will also be giving away a $50 Mama & Little shop credit this week so keep an eye out for that to start on Wednesday on my Instagram!

I'm so excited for you to try these out! They are my favorite! 
Thanks for reading! Have such a great day!

Happy Friday! Coming back from a holiday weekend is always rough, and I tell you what, this week was rough for us. Well, for my husbands car specifically. Tuesday someone swiped the back of his car at his work and drove away, classy, and sometime between Wednesday night and Thursday morning someone BROKE INTO his car. IN OUR DRIVEWAY! Talk about feeling violated... They got away with some of his work things and then some really weird things like 15-20 paint rollers, a pair of his pants and a belt...? Good one. So yeah, to say we are ready for this week to be over is an understatement. It's hard to feel secure again after something like that but we are grateful it wasn't worse. 

Anywho, back to business, sometimes you have to dress up in heels and take your son for a walk, am I right? Haha but no, really I know it's summer now but I love a good moto jacket. They're perfect for those cool summer date nights. I found a lightweight cotton moto jacket that I've linked HERE too if you're looking for something a little cooler. I wasn't able to find this exact one I'm wearing so I'm linking some other options of colored (like blush, grey, creme and navy) faux leather moto jackets for you HERE, HEREHERE and HERE. I love pairing it with some boyfriend jeans and some heels and a bold necklace to really dress it up. Perfect for a night out on the town! 

Welp, I hope you all have a great weekend! I'm excited to spend some time outside with my family!

Spring Shift Dress

Dress: Target (similar, similar)
Jacket: Old (similar)
Shoes: Target

Hey there! I'm so excited to wear dresses all summer long, it really can't get here soon enough for me! Utah is very tricky right now though, those of you who live here know what I'm talking about. It's so nice one day and rains or maybe even snows the next three. Anyway, I'm loving this boho-chic shift dress that I found at Target on clearance for $9 and I can't wait for more warm days to wear it! If you have one near you make sure you head over to Target and check the clearance racks for this dress before its gone! I've linked a couple similar dresses as well though just in case! I love the colors and print on the dress and really love the scoop back. It's the little details like that that always get me. 
Another thing I've recently told you about are my new glasses that I got from EyeBuyDirect.com. I also got some sunglasses and it has been life changing! I've worn glasses for years and haven't been able to comfortably wear sunglasses because I couldn't see out of them and I never purchased prescription sunglasses because they were always so expensive! That's why I was so excited when I found eyebuydirect.com! I was able to get a pair of super cute prescription polarized sunglasses and I can actually see when I'm outside now! And they are super affordable! There are so many to choose from and you can make pretty much any frame into sunglasses if you want. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I'll be ordering more from here. Lots more. 
You can get prescription glasses, sunglasses or if you don't need a prescription, get some cute "attitude" glasses! Make sure you check them out, I promise you won't be disappointed and I'll leave some info for 15% off your first purchase below! 

Here's the code: IF4ALHUGE2

Have a happy Monday!
