The Big Reveal

I’ve been meaning to do a gender reveal post, but since the hubs is out of town I had to make do and use photos from last year. At least it’s yellow right? I don’t know who decided yellow was a gender neutral color, but I guess it worked out for me. I don’t really […]

Boycott

I don’t know about you but I’m gonna boycott maternity clothes for as long as I possibly can. I have nothing against it. It’s just a personal choice I’ve decided to make to save myself from unnecessary purchases I don’t plan on wearing long term. My mom bought me three maternity leggings so hopefully that […]

23

I wish I was 23. This post isn’t about Michael Jordan either. It’s actually the first fashion post about styling the baby bump at week 23. Although I’m actually 25 weeks now, I wanted to share one of my holiday pregnancy looks with you. It’s actually been quite difficult to style a growing belly as […]

Thanksgiving

I know I’m a day early, but I just wanted to wish my blogging/Insta community a Happy Thanksgiving! May you count your blessings, enjoy time with friends and family, eat some yummy food and enjoy the Black Friday sales as we officially welcome the holiday season. This year is not a typical year for me […]

Peter Pan Polished

I have to admit that I wear workout gear 3 out of the 5 work days since I work with children with disabilities and I’m going to get sweaty anyway. When I teach my college class, I try to look business formal because I want the students to think I’m much older than them and […]

Sayonara Summer

This summer was long and hot. I only made it to Portland and Vegas, but it was still nice to get out of LA for a while. I can’t wait to get back to school and start teaching. I feel like fall brings a cleanse and a renewed focus that we lose during the long […]

Defense

When I wore this top to church, I must have offended an older lady in the choir. After rehearsal she pulled me aside and said I needed to pull the back of my top up. I was defensive at first because it was the end of rehearsal and I was going to leave anyway. Fashion […]

Candid

Social media has programed us to put our best photos and lives forward. Nobody talks about the struggles and issues we face under those wonderfully edited photos we upload. Today I want to break that picture perfect image and share some candid shots that may not be so Insta-worthy. Most of these photos were shot […]

Sporty Stripes

The warmer weather brings out all sorts of stripes. Everything from all the lighter baby hues to the classic blue, black, red, navy and even the occasional multicolored stripes. Today I’m going a little more sporty with my Adidas stripes. I bought this sweater at the Adidas Employee Store back in Oregon from the kid’s […]

Pipes X Hieleven

I’ve been very fortunate and blessed to have had the opportunity to teach my first college course this year. As I was gathering my materials and getting ready to leave the house, I realized that I didn’t have a professional “professor” bag that could carry my laptop and course materials. I would use my backpack […]
