Outfit Details: Dress: Amazon | Booties: DSW (similar booties here and here)
Baby Weaver’s Outfits: 4 Piece Outfit (you can find it online at Macy’s and Amazon) | Shoes: DSW
What are you all doing for Thanksgiving?! Since this is Brandon’s favorite holiday I basically follow his lead on this one! He loves all the Thanksgiving dishes and he loves to celebrate as early as possible. LOL. We typically host at our house but this year we are going to Brandon’s aunts house. But don’t get it twisted and think I’m off the hook when it comes to cooking! Like I said Brandon LOVES Thanksgiving so I am still cooking a full on Thanksgiving meal for us. Yes, our big family of 3 ha! I am making turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, broccoli & cheese casserole, green bean casserole, etc. You name it, the boy wants it LOL.
I am also taking baby Weaver to run the Houston Turkey Trot Thanksgiving morning. It has become a tradition for me to run it every Thanksgiving morning for the past few years and last year I missed it because we just got our sweet boy and I didn’t want to take him out in the cold. The past year I’ve realized no weather is bringing that boy down lol plus it’s supposed to be sunny and 60 tomorrow morning so we will be just fine. I usually run the 10k but since this is my first trot with a stroller we have signed up for the 5k. 🙂
Ahhh, so excited for all the fun tomorrow but should get to cooking now LOL. Wishing you all an amazing Thanksgiving with all of your loved ones!

One might see a pair of sparkle boots and say “those are so cute but I don’t know what I would wear them with!” Well, I am here for you girl! 🙂 I instantly fell in love with thesebooties and I can’t stop wearing them so today I am sharing 5 different ways to style this one bootie.
Outfit One: Booties Styled With an Oversized Sweater And Leggings
I wanted to start off with this outfit option because it’s such an easy but extremely cute look. Everyone already has a pair of favorite leggings and oversized sweater in their wardrobe. Take those 2 pieces up a notch with these Cadaoria booties!
Yeah, you could totally wear this cute dress with a simple ankle strap heel but I love how this Cadaoria bootie makes this outfit a show stopping one. I guarantee if you wear this outfit to your next party the boots will be a topic of discussion! P.S. The bow on this dress is removable so you can put it on other pieces in your closet. I think it would be so cute with a plain white button up!
This outfit screams I like comfort, I like Tom Cruise and I also like nice shoes. 🙂 LOL. Seriously though I love how this sparkly boot adds such a girly vibe to this jumpsuit. Totally unexpected but it totally works!
As you can see these booties take any basic look to the next level. Pair them with a chunky sweater and your favorite jeans for an effortless and chic look.
Okay now tell me, which look was your favorite outfit?! If the sparkle trend isn’t your thing, these cute Cadaoria booties come in 3 other colors! I also have the leopard ones and cannot wait to style those too!
Let’s be real, Monday mornings are tough. Actually a lot of mornings are tough 🙂 So today I am sharing the 7 things that help me start my day off on the right foot. Well 8 things if you count coffee 🙂
7 Tips To Start Your Morning Off Right
1 – Give gratitude. Before you jump out of bed take few minutes, a few breaths, to reflect what you are thankful for. I always say 3 things. Sometimes they are the same three: my family, my health, the fact that I woke up to another day and sometimes they are different.
2- Be present. I know this sounds so simple but it’s actually not. You know how many times I have been going through the motions in the morning and caught myself asking my husband to repeat himself because I literally was just thinking about all the things I had to do that day and not listening to the present conversation? Too many to count. I hated that. Most of us are stuck in traffic and/or in the office all day. We should 100% make the effort to be present for the short time in the morning that we have with the people who are most important to us.
3- Take the time to get dressed up. I don’t know about you but putting on a cute outfit and some makeup can really change my mood around.
4- Get up a little earlier. Getting up earlier allows me to do all the things I need to do before my family gets up. This way I am present when Brandon and baby are awake and I’m able to enjoy some time with them in the AM without feeling rushed and stressed.
5- Tune yourself into a good mood. Whether that’s soothing music or complete silence on your drive to work or your first meeting. Pick something that will help clear your head and put you in a good mood. This is different for me everyday. Honestly sometimes I like complete silence, sometimes I listen to bible on CD and if I’m being honest the other day Big Pimpin’ by Jay Z came on and I was like yaaassss it’s gonna be a good day 🙂 so Big Pimpin’ is how I started my morning that day and you know what? It twas a good day 🙂
6- Stay off of social media (and any news media outlet) for at least the first hour. This may be easy for some but really tough for those of us who run a business that social media plays a huge part in. I’ve learned by staying off of social media for at least the first hour allows me to really soak in everything I listed above without any distractions. I am able to be present, get my intentions clear for the day all without having to read about another sad event happening in the world or having fomo for yet another event I had to miss out on because well, #life.
7- Take a moment for personal praise. Look.. before your day gets crazy, take a moment to tell yourself that you are awesome! And be specific! Did you kill it at a meeting the day before? Or maybe the day before wasn’t your best, think about something you accomplished last week and praise yourself for it girl! This boosts our confidence and with attitudes like this you can get anything done! Show yourself some self praise for that extra confidence boost in the morning!
Try these tips and tell me if they helped you. I hope they do! I know things like get more sleep and prepare the night before are some things you can do as well to ensure you start your morning off right however realistically those are 2 things that I do not do well so I just wanted to share the 7 easy tips that worked for me! I hope they work for you too.
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.
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?
Happy Wednesday loves! It’s no secret that I love the matching two piece outfit trend so today I am sharing 5 matching sets that are office appropriate! First up this pretty set for Ann Taylor Factory.
I love the fit of this tweed top and skirt from Ann Taylor Factory. I also love the tie detail on the sleeve. So many of my work outfits have been from here lately. They have the cutest items at such great prices! I am wearing a small in both pieces for referencing. Our sweet cousin actually works at the Tanger Outlet location and she pulled this set for me. Do you think she knows me? I think so! Haha. I know many of you work in an office as well and are always looking for cute items for the work place so I am linking 4 other great sets below! Be sure to tag me if you purchase any of these sets. I love seeing you all in outfits that I share! #twinsies 🙂
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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!
Shoes 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!
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
Hi friends and Happy October! Today I am sharing the top ten best sellers from the blog for the month of September!
Sequin Leopard Top | Eek! I am so happy you guys loved this leopard top as much as I do! It is so cute, so on trend and only $16!
Aldo Quilted Crossbody Bag | Been using this so much lately as you can see in all the photos below! Such a great size for day and night.
Spanx Faux Leather Leggings | Worth the splurge because you can dress them up and down and they hold it allll in! Wearing my normal size medium.
Scarf Print Bodysuit | Such a flattering bodysuit and I love the colorful print! These sizes are selling out fast. In case your size is sold out, I linked some other cute scarf print items in thispost.
Striped Sequin Skirt | Omg, you guys blew me away with how many of you loved this! PUH-lease…..send me photos of how you style it! I know you will love it as much as I do!
Baby Weaver’s Plaid Shirt | This exact color combo is only available in one size but there many ther colors. I had my girlfriend’s little sister put the graphics on the back for me. Message me on Instagram if you want her info! She’s the sweetest, a college student that does this on the side.
Floral Print Blazer | Unfortunately the matching blazer and pant set from Zara sold out but the exact blazer is still available at Shein in a size small!
Happy Monday beauties! Today I want to share a trend that I am loving so much and have found some different items at various price points for all of us to try too! The scarf print is so on trend this season and this Versace-esque print is quickly filling my closet! You may have seen my scarf print skirt here and my two piece set here.
Happy Friday! I got a cutie on the blog today! One I call Mom and baby Weaver calls Lola! 🙂 As you know, Mom attended her first fashion week this year and fit in oh so well! We may or may not have coordinated our outfits, haha! I absolutely adore my Mom and to be able to bring her along for a fashion week experience meant so much to me and her too.
Today I am sharing our coordinating looks 🙂 , some of her fashion week agenda plus a few things that will make you LOL
I was so fortunate this year to have worked with many agencies repeatedly that most of my invites were for a front row seat. So naturally Mom got to sit front row, receive swag bags, got all her photos taken by the photographer, etc. I was like “Mom, just know I didn’t have all this front row goodness my first show!” haha. She was loving it.
Mom also attended the Vogue Magazine x Kendra Scott party with me. She got to design her own charm earrings with the KS team and when they handed them to her she was like “these are free?” LOL. My Mom was cracking me up so much during fashion week. I literally need to write a post titled “overheard by Mila at fashion week”.
If you know my Mom at all you know that she is the sweetest, most loving and outgoing woman. But you probably also know that she is as blunt as they come. Not in a rude way, just in a Filipino, no filter kind of way, haha. There was a girl that had a huge, I mean HUGE (and gorgeous!) diamond ring on talking about how her husband designed it for her and my Mom responded with “is that real?” O…M…G… I literally just stood there for a moment didn’t even know what to do. After I picked my jaw off the floor and realized the girl didn’t respond I was just like yes, it’s real Mom then I tell the girl “your ring is stunning”, grab my Mom and just move onto the rest of the party and accept the fact we had an enemy in the room now, lol. It’s hilarious now but honestly I was terrified because I didn’t want that person to think my Mom was rude (she’s not at all!) she was just asking an honest question that other people may have been thinking.
Another funny thing that happened with Mom was we were at a fashion show and both people sitting next to us were videoing live on their Instagram and Facebook accounts. This outfit comes down the runway in front of us and Mom says “hmmm, no one is going to like that”. I didn’t know if we were going to get kicked out of there or if someone was going to hire her! Ahhhh, never a dull moment with my Mama!
We seriously had the best time and you can see why she kept me laughing the whole time. She kept telling me how thankful she was that she got to come and that just meant the world to me guys. When I first booked her flight out to NYC I was stressing out a little because fashion week is go, go, go. It’s not all glam life like it seems. I have back to back meetings, running all over the city and I just wanted to make sure I could schedule as much time as I could with my mom during this time. I am so thankful my aunt and cousins live in New York because they were able to take her to do all the tourist things while I was at meetings!
This might be too deep for a Friday but honestly, I am just at a point in my life that I know our time with our loved ones are limited and I will basically do anything my parents and family ask of me because we may never get that moment again. You know what I mean? So stressing out about schedules, having to pay for multiple hotel rooms, multiple Uber rides to my aunts house and back into the city were just minor things compared to the memories we created during such a special time with the most special person!
