Hi friends! Today I am sharing a cute weekend outfit! It’s like half weekend, half business inspired because on this Monday, that’s exactly how I feel LOL. We are officially back in Houston from our long weekend in Chicago so I am in the office today but the weekend is still on my mind!

Well first off, I don’t think I officially introduced you to this beautiful Chanel bag that my amazing husband surprised me with!! If you missed my Instagram story last month, I shared this amazing and extremely nice gift Brandon surprised me with after I got back from a work trip. I got back on a Friday night and that Saturday morning when baby Weaver was eating breakfast Brandon handed me a gift bag. Inside of the gift bag was a really cute Steve Madden handbag but it was kind of heavy so I opened it to see what was inside of it. Hooolllllyyyy.SMOKES!!! was my initial thought as soon as I saw the Chanel dust bag! I was very much surprised and of course graciously accepted this gift LOL! It’s so beautiful you guys and my very first Chanel bag. He purchased it from Fashionphile so I couldn’t link the exact one for you previously BUT I have amazing news! Just saw they uploaded the exact one today. I will link it below as well as a few others just in case it sells out.

Ahhh, my husband is so amazing!! He knows I shop gently loved designer items from Fashionphile all the time so I am so happy he remembered the website :). A million brownie points for him.

I hope you all had an amazing weekend! I have some fun things coming your way this week! First up is an Amazon try on haul with 6 other bloggers that I know you will all love if you aren’t following them already! I’ll be sharing more on Instagram later on today. I hope to see you there!

Shop this outfit:


Outfit Details: Cami: Express | Gingham Blazer: Express | Gingham Pants: Express | Handbag: Target (my is sold out so linking a similar one here and here) | Heels: Target

Even if I dislike my commute into the city I will never get tired of getting dressed up for the office 🙂 I am obsessing over this gingham suit. The print is perfect for a summer suit and the fit is so good! I paired it with the downtown Express cami that I wear with literally everything.

I am traveling to Chicago for work this week. There is a promotional trade show going on so we will be attending that. I truly do enjoy my work people so much so I know this will be a fun trip. Plus Taste of Chicago is happening so we have plans to check that out as well.

Another plus is that Brandon and baby will be joining me in Chicago as well! I have work stuff Tuesday-Thursday so Friday-Sunday we are going to explore Chicago as a family! Brandon and I haven’t been since 2015 and when we went it was literally like below 5 so I am excited to visit Chicago in the summer!

Wishing you all an amazing week!


Gibson Look: Roselyn Flutter Sleeve Tee Styled 14 Ways

What do you do when you can’t sleep? Have a mini fashion show in your living room and style a tee 14 different ways, duh! 🙂


Hopefully you all aren’t tired of this super soft tee yet because clearly I’m going to be wearing it a ton! I love the basic fit of this top but the flutter sleeve adds a little something extra. It can easily be dressed up or down so I wanted to give you all some style inspiration on how to do just that!

I broke up the outfits in 2 collages so it’s not too overwhelming to the eye! I am sure you have similar items in your wardrobe that you can style with this flutter sleeve tee but just in case you don’t I linked all items under each collage. Just click on the photo and it will take you directly to the retailers site!

Top Ten Best Sellers For June

You guys, we are halfway through the year. Like how?!

Since it is July 1st I am sharing the top ten best sellers for last month!

Casual Jumpsuit | You all are still loving this Amazon find and I don’t blame you! Super soft and so cute. I have both the olive color and red. Fits true to size.


Designer Dupe Studded Sandals | Such a great quality Amazon find! I may or may not have ordered this sandal in both white and black this week 🙂 I recommend sizing up half a size.


Target Strappy Side One Piece Swimsuit | I love this Target swimsuit! The one piece gives you full coverage but the cut out detail on the side gives you a little something to show off! I am wearing a medium so I say it is true to size.


Stripe Wide Leg Pants | The perfect work pants that can be also dressed up for date night! Wearing a size 4 short. True to size.


Button Down Leopard Dress | Love this loose fitting dress! I wore this in Alaska and was able to pull it right out of my luggage and wear it without steaming it. That’s a major win in my book! Wearing a medium but could have sized down to a small.


Women’s Floral Midi Skirt | Wearing a size medium. Fits a little snug so if in between sizes, I would size up. Also, if you haven’t checked out my newest animal print midi skirts with Gibson, check them out here!


Floral Embroidered Maxi Dress | This dress made the top ten last month too! I love that you all are still loving it! Perfect for a summer wedding! True to size. Wearing a medium.


Designer Dupe Headbands | Designer dupe 3 pack of headbands for under $20? Yes please!


Downtown Cami | The perfect basic cami to style with all of your work wear and can be worn alone for the weekend! Wearing a small.


Floral Swimsuit | Own this cute one piece in both white and black! Wearing a medium. Honestly it’s a little more low cute than I am used to but it’s still so cute and so glad you all love it too!


As always, thank you all so much for supporting the blog by shopping through my links as I do make a small commission each time something is purchased through my links but most of all you don’t know how much I appreciate you all trusting my fashion and sometimes beauty products advice!

Love you guys x a million!


The Day Baby Weaver Came Home Plus 3 Baby Items I Never Knew I Needed

Today I am partnering up with Walmart to share a little more about the first day that baby Weaver came home and also a few baby items that I instantly fell in love with and never even knew I needed!


Earlier this week I shared some info about Walmart’s new baby registry. If you missed that post you can read it here. When you are a new mama there are so many things people tell you that you need to add to your registry. Like so many. Thankfully Walmart’s new baby registry helps you by populating the top things mom’s need for their new babies and then you can add and delete from there. And as you grow into your new role of being a mother, you will learn what works for you and what doesn’t. Today I am sharing 3 baby items that were must haves for me as a new mama!


The First Day That Baby Weaver Came Home

If you have been following along for some time now, you know it was a few months until we got our first call from our adoption agency. You also may remember we got 2 phone calls, 2 Monday’s in a row telling us that we had a possible placement. Just minutes after both of those calls we received a second call letting us know that those children were actually placed with another family.

Heartbreaking? Yes. But looking back, it was all part of the preparation plan and I am not sure there would have been any baby more perfectly matched for us than baby Weaver.

It was Monday, November 6th. It was my first day back in the office after Hurricane Harvey. Our office building had flooded and it took months for them to rebuild the lower floors that got damaged. As I was getting ready that morning I joked to Brandon “today is the day”. I literally had no idea but I did know that both Monday’s before November 6th we had received a phone call from our adoption agency.

I went to work, caught up with everyone I hadn’t seen for months. Had my normal Monday morning meetings, went to the gym, ate lunch at my desk, all the normal Monday things.

At around 1:30pm my husband called and said “he’s 7 months old, half Asian, half African American”. “If we say yes they are going to bring him over around 6 tonight”. I am laughing thinking about this moment because my husband was so sweet acting like he was asking me what I thought but really had already told the agency yes. I mean duh, I was going to say yes LOL.

My emotions were all over the place!

I screamed with excitement and then frantically started asking my husband all the things. Of course, he didn’t have many of the answers. If you are familiar with the adoption process than you know they don’t give you a lot of information on the first call. Literally all we knew was just what my husband said when I first picked up the phone, “he’s 7 months old, half Asian, half African American”.

As soon as we hung up the phone, I ran to everyone’s desk at work that had been awaiting this moment as much as we were! There were tears of happiness and excitement. My boss came out of his office to see what all the noise was about and I told him the news. Right after he congratulated me he asked what I was still doing in the office. LOL.

I packed up and as I sped home I called my brothers, my sisters and my closest friends. As I pulled into our driveway I quickly realized we literally had NOTHING and I mean NOTHING for our new baby who was just hours away from arriving.

From the beginning of the adoption process, we told our agency we were open to the ages from newborn to 2 years old. Since we had no idea what age child we would be placed with, we didn’t buy anything. I immediately text my girlfriends “omg heading to the store tell me what I need for a 7 month old”. Let me tell you, there were a lot of things being text back that day.

We had not done a registry at that point, just prayers. When our prayers were answered we were definitely ready emotionally but our love wasn’t going to magically make diapers, a crib and a car seat appear LOL so we headed to the store. Still crying, still excited :).

We were talking to one of the employees about a bassinet and a swing. He asked “how much does your baby weight” and me and Brandon looked at each other and laughed…we literally had no idea. “Ummm, he’s a boy and he’s 7 months old”. LOL, that’s all I knew at that point.

Thankfully the employee was super helpful and got us in and out of the store quickly. We headed home and set up everything as quickly as we could.

Around 6pm that night, the door bell rang. Brandon and I just looked at each other. Literally no words but I know what we were both thinking…”he’s here”.

We opened the door and the CPS worker had her hands full with paperwork, a bag and our baby. OUR baby ya’ll.

Within seconds she handed him to me and introduced us. I think baby Weaver and I just stared at each other the whole time Brandon was talking to the CPS worker and signing paper work. The case worker was only there for about 10 minutes and left.

There we were with our baby boy after a whirlwind of a day. O…M.GGGeeee…it was real.

I face timed my Mom and Dad. I hadn’t called them earlier that day because I wanted the moment to be just like this….as soon as my Mom answered the face time call, the screen popped up and it was just on baby Weaver’s face. She asked “is that our baby?” and the rest was history!!

Ahhhh, what a day, what a story and most of all what a blessing!

Since that day, we have been so fortunate to be surrounded by such great friends and family that threw us multiple baby showers. All of my experienced mom friends gifted us things I never knew I needed.

3 Baby Items I Never Knew I Needed

  1. Boudreaux’s Butt Paste – this stuff is literally magic! Any sign of a diaper rash and I put a tiny bit on baby Weaver and it has disappeared the same day!
  2. Nose Friday Snot Sucker – Sounds gross and looks gross too, lol, but really this thing works so great! Way better than the old school thingy that our parents had to use on us!
  3. Cool Mist Humidier – Baby Weaver had major congestion the first few weeks. His pediatrician gave us some cough syrup to help but after a week or so I felt bad just giving him medicine everyday when it didn’t seem like it was helping all that much. I kept reading about how a cool mist humidifier like this one could help ease coughing and congestion. After about a day or two we could already tell it was helping! The cool mist option is a great one because unlike the steam humidifier, there is no chance of a slight burn or anything if your child gets too close to it.

Obviously things like diapers, lavender bath soap, a good stroller were definitely must haves in my book as a new mom but the 3 items above are just random items that I had no idea I needed but now don’t know how I can live without!

In case any of you mama’s are still wondering what items to add to your baby registry, I am linking some other favorites of mine below!

I hope this list is helpful and I hope you enjoyed hearing a little more about our first day with baby Weaver!
