The last few days before school started we tried to cram in all the kids’ favorite activities to take advantage of the last few days of freedom. Feeding the ducks was one of my favorite things to do growing up so it was special to share it with the kids.

B just chases the ducks and doesn’t understand yet why they won’t hold still. He runs at them with his arms up trying to hug them like he does with Mio but he doesn’t understand why he can’t catch them. These jeans (on sale) are really soft and stretchy so they were really comfortable and didn’t slow him down at all in his crusade. ;)

I also love Jacadi’s selection of shoes for all the kids. They all zip up on the side which makes it so easy to get them on. Nothing is more annoying than trying to race out the door but having to battle it out with shoe laces. Plus it’s easier for the kids to put on and take off their shoes on their own.

I was such a tomboy when I was a kid. I always loved picking out school supplies but when it came to clothes I would fight my parents like crazy if they tried to put me in a dress. I’m so thankful Mara has a combo of both, she loves to be girly some days and sporty other. I’m so grateful she has a balanced style so I don’t have to go through the hell I put my parents through when they would try to get me in a dress. ;) This dress was one of her favorites for back to school.

Welcome September! I can’t wait to dive head first into fall fashion. Above are a few of my favorite styles. One of the big looks this fall is the 70’s vibe, including flares (remember this post), fringe, and lots of brown suede. I for one can’t wait! How beautiful are these heels in burgundy and this two-tone crossbody? Also these sunnies are under $25.

Why I love Designer Bags

casual outfits hello fashion

Hey guys! Hope you all had a weekend! It was the first weekend in over a month we were home all weekend and let me just say it felt amazing! I finally got the house clean, and the laundry done, I don’t think I put on make up all weekend and we got to catch up with friends we hadn’t seen in forever. It was just so nice to be home!

When it comes to investment pieces, handbags are always at the top of my list of things I save up for. They do so much to elevate any outfit and make budget looks seem higher end. I just got this Celine last week and I am obsessed. I don’t get all my bags brand new, Trendlee is one of my go to spots for discounted high-end designer handbags. They have so many pretty pieces but I am always such a sucker for Celine. This Hermes is next on my list. How pretty is it?!
