Anyone else hesitant to buy patterned clothing? Styles are always changing and prints/patterns are part of that change. I usually do not buy tons of patterned clothing since I am trying to buy more pieces that can mix and match together to make my wardrobe more versatile. However, neutral patterns which can be worn different ways and with basics you already own are good choices. This dress is not a leopard print but more of a spot print in two of my favorite colors; camel and black. It can be worn so many ways, not just as a dress. Today, I am going to show you the top 3 easy ways I will style this dress. If you have a pair of sandals, a pair of white sneakers or a pair of slides/mules then that covers footwear. (In the fall, you can also pair with booties)
Next, you can pair a basic t-shirt or a concert/graphic style t-shirt to make the dress into a skirt look. A denim jacket can go over the dress for chilly days and you can dress the look up with switching out the denim jacket for a blazer and heeled wedges. By making one item so versatile, it will get you more wear out of the item and therefore more bang for your buck.

Finding a good pair of white denim is a must for your wardrobe. A good pair is hard to find sometimes since the denim is light and you want to find the right fit. I promise you will love how versatile a pair can be for your wardrobe. You can dress them up or down. Today, I am sharing 5 quick everyday outfits I pulled together to go with my new white pair of denim I ordered recently. Some of these are good outfit ideas for Memorial Day weekend, which is next week. Try pairing similar options you might have on hand in your wardrobe.

Welcome back. I am a few months behind, okay a handful of months behind on blogging content to share with you all. Things have been busy and an adjustment with a new baby. Today, I am sharing a look into our maternity photo shoot. We had a session with a local photography in late January, about 6 weeks before Beckett made her 6-day-late entrance. My husband and I have not gotten professional photographs together since we got married 5 years ago. Our wedding and engagement session?
I really wanted to remember this big milestone in our family so we braved the Indiana January freezing cold to get some great moments. We had never taken family photos that included Lilly, our fur baby, she is only four and she joined our family after our last session five years ago. I cannot say enough about these photographs Erica Rayl Photography captured of our growing family. The location was spot on! Ladies who are pregnant and wondering what to wear during your maternity shoot, I recommend a dress. You can always wear pants in photographs, but I think a dress will look much better and really go a long way from your everyday wear. I picked out my dress and then we put together items my husband already owned. I must say, I am happy with our wardrobe choices. This handsome man has been hands down the best husband and daddy. It has been a difficult year but I knew he would move mountains to shine as the best daddy to Beckett, and Lilly. Though the last year was not easy with his job lay-off, he stepped right up to cook, clean and take care of this preggo lady. Sometimes life is hard and exciting all at once. It definitely was not the ‘plan’ but we are surviving and making the best life. I always tell myself during the hard times, ‘it could always be worse, and to look at the positives’.
