This Sweetest Stitch ‘Style for Miles’ dress has such a perfect fit! The design is so flattering! I love the mock neck detail, it really adds a chic look, as opposed to just a scoop neck dress. I love pieces that can be styled and accessorized a ton of different ways and this dress is the definition of that!

I wanted to show that this dress isn’t just for fall or spring! It can be accessorized to be more than warm enough for the winter months! I love the way it looks styled with my faux fur scarf and OTK boots! It would be so cute with a faux fur vest, statement necklace, hat, booties, nylons, etc. So many great options! Definitely a must have piece for building your wardrobe! I’m wearing a size small for reference.

Some exciting news for my followers! If you follow me and Sweetest Stitch on Instagram and like my featured photo on my feed you could win $25 credit to spend at Sweetest Stitch!  How cool is that!

John’s birthday was on Sunday and my brothers was on Monday so we had a weekend of birthday festivities! I made regular homemade cheesecake for the first time and turtle brownies! I hate to cook, but I LOVE to bake! Probably because sweets are so much more appealing to me! John and I went out to sushi for his birthday (our favorite) and to Hop Valley (our other favorite) for my brothers birthday. It was so good!

Does anyone have any plans this weekend? We have to paint and clean carpets, so you know, really important plans.

Hope everyone has a safe and fun weekend!

I’ve really been longing for spring lately. I don’t know if it’s the after Christmas slumps, or the cold gloomy weather, or both!  When I got this cape from Trunk-Up Boutique in the mail and put it on, my somber feelings about the weather completely went out the window!!

I was so comfortable and warm without having to put on a ton of layers. I was so happy the weather will be cool enough so I can continually wear this cape, because I love it THAT much! I’m even more in love with the color than I thought I would be! It’s kind of an olive/yellow with specks of all different colors! You can’t really see in the photos, but it has the cutest button up detail along the neck too! This is the second item I’ve gotten from Trunk-Up and I love their company! Go check them out!

Trunk-Up has graciously offered to give away this exact same cape to one of my followers on Instagram.  All you have to do is follow me and Trunk-Up Boutique and like the latest Giveaway picture on IG.  Winner will be announced soon! Update:  Congratulations Missmazariegos for winning the Cape!  I hope you love it!!

Porter and I had a little mommy/son day date to go see “tractor in the sky.” (Huge crane that is being used to build a new hotel) We got some Starbucks (chocolate milk for him), yummy treats, and he sat and watched in awe. I’m really loving this age! He’s talking so much more, asking questions, arguing (lots of fun) 🙂

It’s John’s birthday on Sunday and my brothers birthday on Monday! Excited to spend some time with my guys!

Hope you all have a great weekend!

When I saw this black and white striped dress I just had to have it! I’m such a sucker for stripes and this is a dress I can wear into spring! I bought a medium because I wanted it a little big and I didn’t want it to be too short! I think a small would have been perfectly fine though! Now I want every black and white striped dress I see in every style and cut! This was the first non-rainy day in so long and I was sooooo happy to see the sun! This dreary weather has really been wearing on me!

On the plus side I have been getting a ton of wear out of my Hunter boots, it’s all I’ve been reaching for! They are a must have in this PNW weather! If you are thinking of buying a pair check out my What to know before buying Hunter Boots post!

John surprised me last weekend with tickets to go see The Revenant- It was so good! I’m a huge movie lover and from the moment I saw ‘What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?’ I was an instant Leo fan! I recommend it for sure if you can handle gory movies!

We had our first ever all night throwing up sickness with Porter last night 🙁 We knew it was only a matter of time. Thank God he was only sick one night because it was awful to see my baby so sick! He’s back to his good 0l’ self asking for cake pops and trips to go see “tractor in the sky!’

Hope everyone is enjoying 2016 so far!!

I love the casual layering look of a collared button up under a sweater! Combining two of my favorite winter staples to make a clean put together look is such an easy go to outfit! I was even warm enough to not have to wear a coat! On a side note – I never want to put this amazing tote down. So, if you see me with it way to much, don’t judge!

John and I went out to pick up some new rugs for the front and back doors of the house (big time adults here)! Of course, we went to Target. Porter has to look at toys every time we go! He always asks, “Look at toys?” He has to go up and down every isle and usually doesn’t say a word until he finds one he wants and yells out, “OK Momma!!” He’s so funny! I’ve been taking him to open gym at a gymnastics place in Eugene and he loves it! He doesn’t really ever get to play or interact with kids his age so I’ve really been trying to take him to do things where he can be around other kids. I think it’s good for the both of us, because if I had it my way he would only hang out with me. 🙂

Hope everyone’s week gets off to a great start!
