Happy Friday beauties! 3 exciting things happening today! 1- It’s Friday 🙂 2- I am teaming up with the Ann Taylor Factory store at Tanger Outlets to bring you some Thanksgiving outfit inspiration and 3- My family and I are taking the over the Like to Know It family account today!

PSA for all my mama and soon to be mama friends. Their family account is so great to follow because it shares so many Mom bloggers who share mom fashion, kids fashion and maternity style! Basically if you are a Mom or soon to be Mom you are going to love this account!

Alright let’s talk Thanksgiving! It is exactly 13 days away and even though I don’t have my menu put together yet I sure do have my Thanksgiving outfit options picked out 🙂 Today I am sharing one dressy look and one more casual look with Ann Taylor Factory.

Outfit Details: Top: Ann Taylor Factory | Denim: Abercrombie | Heels: DSW | Hat: Target

 I wouldn’t typically choose to wear jeans on Thanksgiving because #turkey but these jeans are so comfy and stretchy just like leggings and I love this top because it will hide my food belly in the most fashionable way, haha! And it’s only $19.99! That’s hard to pass up! Also, running the Turkey Trot every year has been a tradition and I’m doing it this year with baby Weaver in tow so there’s a 100% chance that I will be rocking dirty hair so this hat will be the perfect accessory! 🙂

Do you get all dressed up for turkey day festivities or do you opt for something more casual?

Birthday Post Q & A

Ahhhh, October 31st. The day I thought everyone was dressing up in costumes, handing out candy and in the best mood all because of me…until I was about 5 years old and realized it was actually a day people called, Halloween LOL

In natural Roselyn fashion, I was preparing for this birthday post about a day ago 🙂 and asked you guys to throw out some questions that you would like me to answer. Below I answered the most frequently asked questions  plus some other fun ones. I hope you all enjoy and I hope it helps you guys get to know me more!

birthday-blog-post

Q. What did I want to be when I was younger?

A. I remember always telling everyone I wanted to be a model until I was about 8 and then somewhere around 10 I decided I wanted to be a lawyer, lol.

Q. What did I go to school for?

A. On the complete opposite end of the spectrum, I actually ended up trying to go into dental hygiene my first year of college. My mom wanted me to end up in the medical field I figured dental hygiene was a happy medium for the both of us. The day they brought in a cat for me to dissect I knew I was not about that life. I immediately gave into my passion for fashion and applied for a Fashion Merchandising program. My mom was a little sad at first and really didn’t understand what exactly I was trying to do but she supported it and we both couldn’t be happier now. So long story long, I have my degree in Fashion Merchandising.

texas-fashion-blogger
two-piece-outfit-trend

Q. What brought me to Texas

A. I always laugh a little on the inside when someones asks me this. Because I don’t want to get into the whole back story I usually tell people I moved here for work but honestly I moved to Houston for an ex-fiance. That did not end up working out but I couldn’t be happier that I ended up staying here. Everything truly happens for a reason.

Q. How did I and Brandon meet?

A. Brandon and I met through mutual friends. We were friends for a few years before we actually started dating. True story is that I was way more into him than he was me, lol but then he finally came around 🙂

Q. Favorite Hair Products

A. You all know I love trying new products all the time but currently my favorite shampoo and conditioner is from Pantene, favorite dry shampoo is this one by OGX and fav hairspray is this one by Moroccan oil.

Q. Favorite Places To Shop?

A. I am an equal opportunity shopper so if you have been following along from some time now you know that I can do some damage in both Nordstrom and Walmart. I love hunting for styles in boutiques and I love finding a good deal (for the both of us!) but if I had to name my top 5 they would be Target, Nordstrom, Asos, Shein and Loft stores.

Shopper tip: I finally added a “Where I Shop” section on the sidebar of my blog. If you click on any of those links to shop, I will get credit/commission from that retailer. A lot of you are so sweet and ask for links so that I get credit. This is an easier way to navigate to a certain retailer instead of having to search through blog posts to find the link in a post. I even get credit if you click on an item in my post and end up buying an item outside of what I linked. That’s just FYI. So again, THANK YOU for shopping through my blog and my links!

matching-set-outfit

Q. One beauty product I can’t live without?

A. Omg, this one is so hard. Do lash extensions count? Haha. Honestly, if I was stranded on an island and could only have one thing I would have to choose my aquaphor advanced therapy. So random I know but I use it all day everyday.

Q. Why did we choose to adopt?

A. Long story short, my husband and I always wanted to adopt. Our plan was to try and conceive first and then adopt our second baby but our plan changed a bit. Again, I truly believe everything happens for a reason and we are so happy. You can read more about our adoption story here.

Q. When will we reveal baby Weaver’s name and face?

A. Ahhh, AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, I PROMISE! We are finally over the biggest hurdle and now just have to process the adoption paperwork. Trust me, I am just as eager to share than you guys are to see!

Q. Starbucks order?

A. This changes all the time but lately I have been getting the salted caramel cold brew.

Q. Where do I work out?

A. At my office gym, Ryde, Ride and Yoga Works.

Q. What company do you work for?

A. I’ve talked about what I do a few different times.  I work in Supply Chain Management as a Procurement Manager. But I have never mentioned the company I work for. I know this may sound weird but I feel like telling the world exactly where I work is like giving someone my home address. I’m sure after me sharing tidbits about my company, one could Google but honestly I just feel weird putting it out there.

Q. Do I have plans to blog full time?

A. Ahhh, the million dollar question. I have gone back and forth on this so many times. If I disliked my company and current role I probably would say yes in a heartbeat. RoselynWeaver.com has provided us so many opportunities that I only dreamed of 3 years ago but I truly love the people I work with and I enjoy what I do. Plus they provide such great flexibility when needed that it would be hard for me to leave. More corporations should follow their lead on this. I work from home one day a week, they are so family oriented and again the people I work with on a day to day basis make my job seem so far from work. So the answer is I don’t know lol. Maybe I will need more sleep now that I am 35 but until then I am okay putting in my hours towards the blog from 9pm-3am with photoshoots on my lunch break 🙂 Yes, I may have a breakdown once a quarter but #worth it haha

Q. Do you make money blogging?

A. Yes. I talked a little about that in this post. Influencer Marketing is huge and is just growing. There are so many different ways to make money blogging. Hustle hard and the potential is endless.

polka-dot-outfithow-to-style-sock-booties

Outfit Details: Top: Red Dress Boutique (wearing a small)| Pants: Red Dress Boutique (wearing a small)| Shoes: DSW

Q. How long have I been blogging?

A. A little over 3 years.

Q. My pet peeves?

A. Lol, I wrote a little on this top here.

Q. Favorite Quote?

A. Do unto others as you want done unto you.

Q. What race am I?

A. 100% filipina.

Okay friends, I will end this Q&A sesh here but this was sooo much fun! I love reading things that you guys were curious about. One of the things I didn’t answer here is “who is my favorite blogger?” I love this question but truthfully there are so many bloggers I follow for so many different reasons! You guys have inspired me to do a series on this. I think I’ll share on Instagram stories. I’ll keep you posted on that!

Thank you all so much for the great questions and just for being so great.period. ILYSM!

5 Must Have Shoe Trends For Fall

This post is sponsored by DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse. All opinions expressed in this post are mine.

Hey beauties! I am super excited about today’s post because I am talking about one of our most favorite things! SHOES! More specifically, I am talking about the 5 hottest shoe trends you need this Fall season!

AdvertisementShoes play an essential role in every outfit. Whether you are styling an outfit for work or the weekend, your shoes complete your look! Luckily, I am partnering up with DSW today to point you and your shoes in the right direction!

fall-shoe-trends

  1. Leopard Print

Of course I had to start with leopard print first! Whether you are a sneaker lover, a boot lover, or a heels lover; you need a pair in leopard print! I personally love these Sam Edelman heels because they make any outfit look chic! You can wear them with a skirt and graphic tee like I did below or you can style leopard print to the office without being “too loud” for the work place. That is what I love about shoes and accessories. Being able to try a trend like leopard print in a small way when it’s out of your typical comfort zone.

LEOPARD PRINT SHOE TRENDLEOPARD PRINT HEELS

Here are leopard print options for every shoe lover:

2. Over The Knee Boot

Fall season after Fall season I boycotted this trend. Not because I didn’t love over the knee boots but because I couldn’t find the perfect pair that didn’t look like they were wearing me. Do you know what I mean? I ordered a pair last year that looked like it swallowed my whole leg and then I ordered a pair that I couldn’t even get past my calves, lol. Oh, the struggles of being a girl! Once I found the perfect pair, I realized what the hype was all about! These Vince Camuto over the knee boots were love at first sight. Not only did they fit my leg perfectly but I don’t need a village to help me get them off! The easiest way to style over the knee boots is just like I did below. With skinny jeans and a cute sweater! You can easily dress them up with a cute sweater dress as well!

over-the-knee-bootscomfortable-over-the-knee-bootsOTK-boots

Because I know not one OTK boot will fit all, I am sharing various options below:

3. Kitten Heel Mules

Kitten heel mules give such a chic and sophisticated look to any outfit, like these Vince Camuto ones! I have a girlfriend who hates, I mean HATES, wearing heels and I finally convinced her to buy a pair of kitten heels and now she’s hooked! It’s the tiniest add of height but makes a huge difference in dressing up your outfit. Kitten heels are great if you are uncomfortable walking in higher heels as this style is typically lower than three inches but for this season they are a must have for all! I saw them so much during New York Fashion Week which was genius because you are running from show to show and from meeting to meeting in comfort and style.

KITTEN HEELSkitten-heel-mulespink-heels

Kitten Heel Mules in every color:

4. Block Heels

Another must have shoe trend for Fall and comfortable style are block heels! This Kelly & Katie block heel looks extra chic in combination with a pointy toe. They are perfect for your nine to five but can also effortlessly be styled with jeans and a cardigan like I styled below. This burgundy color is always hot for the Fall season so you kind of get a two in one trend with this block heel!

block heel trendburgundy-pumpsfall-shoe-trend

Here are some other great block heel options:

5. Chunky Dad Sneakers

Okay, so I saved this hot, hot, HOT trend for last because I know so many of us, including myself, were initially intimidated by this shoe trend. “Is it a fad?” “How do I even style those?” All questions I asked myself and you may have asked yourself too. I ordered them and girl… I love them!! These Fila “dad sneakers” instantly give your look an effortless cool girl vibe and who wouldn’t want that?! Because I know a lot of you girls may still be a little iffy on this shoe trend, I am sharing two different and easily achievable ways to style this shoe trend below.

Additional Chunky Sneaker options (loving the metallic ones!):

Alright ladies, now I want to hear what is your favorite shoe trend for Fall and what is one shoe trend you haven’t tried yet?!

Funny + Inspirational Mommyhood Quotes

Happy Friday loves! Sometimes I browse Pinterest when I can’t sleep (who is with me?!) and I recently pinned some fun and inspirational Mom quotes that I wanted to share with all you mama friends of mine!

Outfit Details: Tee: Francesca’s (this is sold out so I am linking similar ones below) | Leggings: Spanx | Adidas Shoes: DSW (love the color so much!) | Sunglasses: Quay

Mom Tees:

If you caught my Instagram stories yesterday, you saw that our morning started off a  bit rough. Honestly, it was the smallest thing that finally made me breakdown and cry but it was so much needed, lol. I was trying to hide the feeling that I was overwhelmed and it needed to be out there. I cried it out, Brandon came to the rescue per usual and then I ended the night with so many amazing, Godly women. Baby Weaver getting his fruit pouch all over the car yesterday is what made me breakdown but he is the last thing that stresses me out. It was the fact that I overbooked my morning because I knew I was going to be out of the office in the afternoon, it was the fact that I had to shoot a campaign at lunch that was already a day late, it was the fact that I was supposed to be preparing to speak that night to a room full of women so that they could feel inspired and rejuvenated all while I was feeling so stressed, it was the fact that I was simply.doing.too.much.

Being a mom has been my greatest blessing. It’s kind of crazy to think that even if I had to give up all of my other successes to be a Mom, I would do it in a heartbeat. Baby Weaver brings me so much joy, makes me feel loved like no other and brings the biggest smile to my face even after the hardest of moments or day. Honestly, the cry was much needed yesterday. I cried all the way to the office if you were wondering lol. You guys were sending the sweetest messages yesterday. My sweet friend Cynthia even said “I heard crying cleans out your eyes so you need that every once in a while”. Is that true? Or were you just trying to make me feel better? lol. Either way it worked.

Anyway….sorry I completely got off topic there. Today I want to share Mom quotes that I can relate to oh so much! Some funny and some inspirational. I hope you enjoy them too!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month x JCPenney

The month of October is so important to me for so many reasons. Did you know that over 250,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year? If you know us personally, or have been a reader friend for some time now you know that my beautiful Mom is a breast cancer survivor. I talked a little bit about it in this post I wrote back in 2016. In light of Breast Cancer Awareness month I want to highlight companies and brands that are doing their part to spread awareness and are contributing in any way that they can!

JCPenney has many different promotions going on that all drive support to this very important cause. I am very happy to be partnering up with JCPenney this month to help spread the word on their various promotions. #SephoraInJCP is inviting everyone in to find their “perfect pink” lip color to spread awareness of this important cause! Sharing some photos below of the pink shades that were my favorites from my latest visit. I may or may not have come home with all of them LOL.

finding-the-perfect-pink-lipstick pink-lipstick

sephora-lipstick sephora-in-jcp

The shade I am wearing is Marc Jacobs Lip Crayon in color “send nudes”. Color swatches from top (closet to my hand) to bottom are Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in color alpha, Marc Jacobs Lip Crayon in color pink straight, Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in color back talk, Huda Beauty Demi Matte Cream Lip in color SheEO (cutest name ever!) and last but not least Huda Beauty Demi Matte Cream Lip in color Game Changer. I actually started using Huda Beauty lip products after fashion week and I love, LOVE the formula! Sephora in JCP has a mini set here too which is great for trying out a few different shades or perfect for gifting!

While you are at Sephora inside JCP be sure to stop by the salon where they will be accepting donations for the entire month of October. Each customer that donates will have the opportunity to win a basket of Salon goodies!! Also, on October 20th and 21st, 20% of ALL salon sales will be donated to the American Cancer Society. Honestly you guys I haven’t had my hair done at a JCP salon in ages but I am totally going to schedule a blow out just for this cause. Might as well right?! Houston gals, let me know if you want to have a girls date!

One of the other things they are doing for the entire month is donating $2 from each City Streets BCAM screen tee sold.

So I hope you all join me in doing our small part to help contribute in a major way! If you go in to find your perfect pink, visit the #jcpsalon or purchase a BCAM screen tee let me know! I would love to hear plus I wanna see what your perfect pink shade is! Click here to find a Sephora in JCPenney near you!

Where To Stay In Tulsa, Oklahoma + Top Things To Do

top-things-to-do-in-tulsa

Where To Stay In Tulsa:

We stayed at the boutique Ambassador Hotel in downtown Tulsa and we could not have been happier! The 55 room hotel is located inside one of Tulsa’s most historic buildings. The dĂ©cor is so chic and modern all while still having an old romance feel. The staff was so kind, helpful and got us checked in and all bags up to our room so quickly when we checked in at midnight!

ambassador-hotel-oklahomaambassador-hotels

As soon as we walked into our Ambassador Suite I was immediately delighted! The luxurious dĂ©cor continued onto each of the rooms and I was so happy to see that there was a separate living space from the master bedroom. With our little one going to bed so early, it’s nice to have that extra space when Mom and Dad want to stay up enjoying room service from The Chalkboard restaturant that was also located inside of the hotel.

best-of-tulsa-oklahomaambassador-hotel-tulsa

the-chalkboard-tulsa

Clearly baby Weaver and I were enjoying our relaxing and jumping time on these comfy beds!

Also, if you travel with your fur babies (I wish Brandon would agree to take Tex and Cali with us!), the beautiful boutique hotel is also pet friendly. Baby Weaver was having a ball with some of the pups we ran into in the elevator and lobby!

Since the hotel is in downtown Tulsa, it is the perfect location considering it was only a short drive to most of the popular sites I’ll list later on in this post. The hotel also has various meeting rooms, a fitness center and a complimentary shuttle service.

If you are looking for a first class hotel in Tulsa, I highly recommend the Ambassador Hotel!

What To See In Tulsa:

Center of the Universe | We parked and walked up to the “Center of the Universe” to find we passed it up, haha! Surprisingly there were no signs or anything saying “you are here” so just note that once you park, you have to walk a short distance to the actual spot. There are no signs so just keep your eyes open 🙂

The Cave House

Tulsa Zoo | A must do when you have your little ones

Discovery Lab | This was such a fun space and perfect for an afternoon when it was pouring outside. We were able to let baby Weaver run around and play with all the cool things. It’s sort of like a small scale children’s museum.

Oldest House In Tulsa

Philbrook Museum of Art

The Gathering Place | Holy Smokes!! You guys, this is a definite must see! One of my work colleagues who used to lived in Oklahoma told me that this place had just opened and I am soooo happy we were able to go. I will link their official site here. Even if you have just a few hours in Tulsa this should be the one place you go! This riverfront park was way more than we thought it was going to be!

Where To Eat In Tulsa:

Society on Cherry Street | OMG, best burgers and truffle fries!

The Tavern

Jupiter

The Chalkboard | This is conveniently located in the Ambassador Hotel

Where To Grab A Coffee & A Snack:

tulsa-coffee-shops

Foolish Coffee

The Phoenix

Coffee House on Cherry Street

Topeca Coffee

Where To Shop In Tulsa:

I know you aren’t going to believe this but I only stopped to shop in one area of Tulsa. Utica Square. We were so busy trying to see all the local things in 2.5 days that we really didn’t have time to shop much!

tourist-things-in-tulsa

Lastly, this isn’t technically a Tulsa, Oklahoma highlight but I do want to mention our new stroller that we took on this trip which made traveling a lot easier. I know the description says it’s super lightweight but no joke when we were at the airport I kept looking inside the stroller to make sure baby Weaver was there! It was so light I felt like I wasn’t pushing anyone LOL!  This new jet stroller by Silver Cross was made for jet setting kids in mind! It folds to a compact size so small that you can even bring it onto the plane and stick in the overhead bin.

I hope you enjoyed this Tulsa round up. Please let me know if you have any other questions!
