navy plaid

The fall isn't complete without a new plaid shirt in the closet. I love this navy one as it is short sleeve and in an unexpected boxy shape, a nice mix up from the classic button down.

I have recently discovered BeautyCounter and couldn't be more enthusiastic about a brand. As a vegetarian, avid runner, and mom what I put in my body is always a concern of mine. But not until I became a mom, what I put on my body made me think.

BeautyCounter has an extensive list of ingredients that have been linked to health concerns that they refuse to put into their products. Ever. So I can rest assured that I am being healthy inside and out. Plus the products are totally addictive. 

As seen on Instagram, I recently added some BeautyCounter to my collection and I already love how my skin feels. Below are my current top five products.

1. Nourishing Cleansing Balm- my skin gets super dry and I have already seen a difference in the two days I have been using this. I like to leave a small amount on overnight for a super hydrating mask. Then I wake up with a dewy glow. 

2. Lustro Face Oil - I like to use it around my eyes before bed as that is where I get the driest skin. I also apply it before my moisturizer for a dewy look and on my neck at nighttime to prevent aging. 

3. Lip Sheer - great on its own or with your favorite lip liner, your lip game will thank you and you will wonder what you did before this. Seriously. I wear all day, everyday. {plus the Scarlet is the perfect tint of red.}

4. Enlightening Treatment Pads - I am all about a safe product, but I would also like my skin to look 19 again. Since using this followed by the Nourishing Cleansing Balm before bed, my skin looks and feels like it is turning back the clock. {who doesn't want that?!?}

5. Vibrant Eye Perfector - I have been using a nightly eye cream since high school but when I looked up the ingredients of the one I had been using, I immediately threw it out and replaced it with this one. Ultra light but made just for the delicate skin around your peepers, I love dabbing this on day and night.

Mommy Monday

I am so excited to be kicking off my new series Mommy Mondays!

While I know that not all my readers are moms, I hope that this series will provide inspiration for all of you, mom or not, of ways to make your upcoming week better. Social media is so prevalent and people are in such control of the image that they share with the world, but I wanted to share that I don't always look the way I look in outfits posts or Instagram images.  There are days that I forget to brush my teeth, or I rely on one of my fedora's as getting dressed, or I stay in workout gear well past 10pm. As women {and moms!} I want to be a source of support and inspiration for all my readers, no matter the stage in life. 

I will try to keep each week's round up of items around $100 {this week, everything is under} and there will be something on the list for everyone each week. Let me know if you want to see more or less of something. I am so excited to get a bit more personal and share a peak into my life!

1. Gel Manicure - if you are need of a pick me up or just a break, I highly recommend scheduling yourself for some pampering. If you are not a fan of the gel manicure, this Gel Setter Top Coat gives you the exact same look, without the commitment or required soak off of a typical gel mani. 

2. Honest Hand Sanitizer - Whether a mom or not, flu season is no joke {and neither are germs. Ever!} I love this hand sanitizer, and as a nurse, I have tried them all! It is natural, non sticky and smells great. Plus it is the perfect size to keep everywhere. {I have one in every purse, the car and two in the diaper bag.}

3. Little Duck Organics - these are amazing! My daughter loves them and gets excited everytime she sees the adorable packaging. There is nothing in them but the fruit or veggies. NOTHING! Since adding solids, I keep these with me wherever we go so the little one doesn't eat her books. {I learned the hard way.}

4. Gap Fit Leggings - I love these! The color couldn't be more perfect for the season and they are super soft. If you are having a difficult or lazy day, you will gladly leave these on all day since they have the comfortable feel of a work out pant but are uber soft.

5. ComoTomo - Orange silicone teether. This is small, bright and surprisingly entertaining for a little one. And my mom's dog loves it too.

While transitioning into fall, the idea of slowly adding in fall friendly accessories {like these booties for $79 and this blush fedora for $58} is perfect for the Southern California weather, or for those of you still holding onto summer. 

This tank is under $8 and perfect for layering into the cooler temps. I have already worn it to a mommy & me workout class, family dinner and to bed, {it that versatile and super soft!} And at that price, I have already ordered a back up in this color and white

I am loving the fall trend of olive green. I first thought it would be great for fall when falling in love with these olive skinny stretch cargo pants {so, so comfy! Order a size down, they run large.} I thought that the color would be hard to wear, but then I began to treat it like a neutral and noticed that it was the quinesstinal fall color and looked great with everything {i.e navy} in my closet

Shop all the great selections below that are under $100 in this super fall friendly color.

If you can't tell, I love a great chambray top. This short sleeve chambray top is a little more versatile than this one seen in this post, but I try not to play favorites....While San Diego weather attempts to transition to fall, this outfit is the perfect 'pre-fall' outfit.
