Just when I think it's going to start getting warmer the temperatures plummet again! We've been got snow on the forecast for tomorrow, I guess I'll take one more snow fall (but then that's it!) . Having a two year old, we are outdoors a lot, playing and getting dirty. So this is my tomboy look for those outdoorsy adventures days. To be honest, the zip front flannel top is one of my favorite things in my wardrobe. I love a comfy and cozy piece - It's great for chilly mornings around the house, good for outdoor adventures or style it up with some cute over the knee boots for a day out running errands.

I am new to the world of duck boots and I'm so happy I joined the club, this exact pair are G.H. Bass for Madewell and they are the best I've seen. These shoes come with the standard show lace pictures above, but they also send you a red pair, Which I LOVE! They bring a pop of color to any outfit. These are currently on Major sale Under $100 - So if you are in need of a pair of duck boots I would jump on this pair! They are perfect for Winter but also good for the Spring and the fall to be worn in the rain.


Valentine's Day Dress

Valentine's day brings out the girly side in me, It's the perfect excuse to get dressed up in your most feminine look for your special evening out with your man or girlfriends.  Ladies, It's your day to shine and wow that special someone in your life or just look good for yourself! Being a mom to a two year old doesn't really allow me to dress in my prettiest of dresses and heels all the time, so whenever a special day comes along, I look forward to getting dolled up! 

Now ladies, just because it's valentine's day, does not mean you have to wear pink or red, unless you want to! Wear something that compliments you and what your personal style is. It's all about feeling and looking your best! I've rounded up my favorite finds, feminine and flirty to sexy and even causal. So if you're heading out for a dinner or staying in a cooking a nice meal you'll be sure to find a special dress in my picks.

Guys, I have to admit, I love a denim on denim look or as chris like to tease me with the "canadian tuxedo" anytime I wear it!  But come on, how can you not like denim on denim?  I like to think of it as a blank canvas, just ad some fun accessories to make your outfit pop.

Adding fun accessories is what makes this look! A leopard or bright colored flat, a pop of a bag or an oversized pom beanie and you're sure to go from "Canadian Tuxedo" to denim on denim chic ;)

So since I love denim on denim, I decided to round up my favorite denim finds for you to style them separate or together! 


blanket scarf

The weather here has been all over the place, it's been in the 50's which I'm not complaining about, but it's the middle of winter!  With a stretch of warm weather I'm sure enough to whip out my brand new denim jacket from J. Crew, which I can't wait to wear on repeat when the spring finally arrives. With it being in the 50's the denim jacket is just not cutting it, that's where this gorgeous blanket scarf from Express comes into play! I love a good blanket scarf but in my opinion it only works best on top a denim jacket or no jacket at all. These scarfs are very big and bulky but perfect for keeping you warm and cozy. The colors of this scarf are my absolute favorite, warm peachy tones, perfect for a sunny day look!



Winter is all about keeping warm and feeling cozy, for the most part. I live in oversized sweaters and knit beanies, on a daily basis.  This sweater is the comfiest and cozied and so easy to style. I love pairing it with these cream colored jeans for a soft feminine, winter look.  I styled this look with my favorite pair of duck boots but throw on a pair of booties or heels and you've quickly transformed from winter adventure seeker to brunching babe.  I love a piece that can be worn several ways and this sweater, in this color is a winter closet must have. It's currently on major sale and I link it down below for you to shop! Keeping this post short and sweet today so that we can enjoy our day off with daddy.
