velvet peplum top

I am loving all the velvet right now, and this peplum top is currently on sale!

navy lace bell sleeve

I am beyond obsessed with this navy lace bell sleeve dress. I wore this for our first {and, so far, only!} date night out over the holidays and I can't wait to wear it again.  

I've included some of my favorite great navy lace selections below. 

I wear this vest daily. I may even have it on now. 

And I have a thing for navy shoes and navy, anything really. But, you already knew that. 

These lace up flats are the perfect pop and I felt uber festive pairing them with plaid pants.

I love a great monochromatic look, as it is a super easy way to be chic, timeless and ready for anything on your agenda.

If you follow me on Instagram, you saw a couple of weeks ago, I did a collaboration with a local San Diego consignment shop, La Femme Chic. They are located in Solana Beach, on my favorite local street, Cedros {there is a Lofty coffee and a short walk from my daughter's favorite playgrounds that overlooks the ocean}. 

They have the best selections and get amazing new stuff daily. They recently had a client drop off an stunning selection of not-to-be-missed handbags. Lucky for you, they are offering navy & orange readers 10% off. Local readers, print out the below coupon, or show it on your phone in store. If you are not local, don't worry! They put their best items online as well and you can use the code 'HOLIDAY16.'

I have a couple more outfit posts to share from our collaboration, so stay tuned for those! How amazing is this Armani Red Jacket? A total outfit maker. 



Who doesn't get inspiration from chic women and street style?

While you know that I have never meet a stripe that I didn't love, this stylish lady has me wanting to repurpose them with everything. Shop some of my current striped tee loves.

home sweet home

I have loved loved loved our home. I spent my first night here the Sunday night after our wedding, we started our family here and did multiple renovations to make it our own. I love that the backyard is the perfect size for our big dog and that I can hear my daughter chatter to herself in her room while I am in the kitchen. 

Some things will be changing and I love getting inspiration on Pinterest. Follow my 'Home Sweet Home' board on Pinterest to see my current inspirations.

stripes and ballet flats

This was one of my most liked photos of 2016. And, if you were to see me around town, chances are that I would be wearing this striped deck shirt. I have it in every color and these ballet flats are among the most comfortable shoes in my closet. 

gray peplum sweater

This cashmere blend peplum sweater is the perfect feminine, yet cozy layer. 

navy spanx

These navy spanx windowpane pants are a fun pant alternative to the obvious winter legging. {and currently on sale for $32!}

monochromatic navy outfit

Is there anything more timeless than a monochromatic navy look?

stripes blazer and blanket scarf

I joked on Instagram that I was an innovative blogger pairing stripes and a plaid blanket scarf for church. {The 9 am serve is contemportary and thus casual.} But it was cold and this striped deck tee is super easy to nurse in. Plus the scarf and blazer added a little more privacy for nursing, even though church has a soundproof room for new moms to watch and listen to the sermon.

dog and baby selfie

This day I was proud that my skinny jeans zipped, that we got dressed and out of the house before noon and that McKinley {the dog} was minding her manners. 


navy velvet

Just when I said I wasn't buying more shoes....

Could they be more me??? And at 50% off, I couldn't click purchase quickly enough. Truth: I also ordered them in the rose velvet, you know...just to check on sizing. Insert heart eye emojis here. 

Feel free to copy me as the sizes are selling out fast. {kinda bummed I missed out on the blush suede. I would probably easily talk myself into keeping more than one pair. I can't wait to share on Instagram. Find me impatiently waiting by the mailbox!} Here is a very similar style on sale for under $50.

How is it already 2017?!?

I have been having an out of body experience with life and how amazing all the ups and downs are. If you had told me where my life has taken me and where I am currently standing now in this year, 10, 15 and 20 years ago, I would have told you, "I wish!" 

I am lucky to have two healthy children, the chance to be at home with them while working on this little blog of mine, a strong marriage and family that lives close by. I am excited for this next year to see my brother marry his soul mate, continuing to watch my daughter become and grow into the sweetest big sister, watch my son continue to grow and already try to keep up with his sister, travel with my family to a growing list of amazing places, and hopefully have all family be healthy and happy. 

I'm also planning on getting better about having a regular date night and this cozy, yet sexy, off the shoulder sweater {under $80} is the perfect easy mom look: super cute, but still comfy. And these faux leather leggings {under $100} feel like you favorite Lululemon leggings but look like real leather leggings. Win, win!
