March 25th I celebrated my two year blogiversary! Sometimes I feel like I just started yesterday and sometimes I feel like I’ve been blogging for forever! When the anniversary of my blog hits I always reflect on how much I’ve accomplished and my goals for the future. I started Looks Like Rein for inspiration, at a time when I felt alone, I wanted to meet life long blogging friends that were supportive and passionate about life, fashion, and style. I have definitely accomplished that and more. I cherish the wonderful people that blogging has brought to my life and I’m so blessed to be a part of this community! Thank you to all who read, and relate to what I have to say. I hope my words have brought some kind of inspiration to your life!

You know I love blush tones. On my blogiversary I wanted to keep this theme of wearing neutral/blush tones. See last years post here. Comfy, flowy tops are my favorite and the bell sleeves make it girly and fun! I am obsessed with my new lace-up wedges! The best part, they are only $50! Besides this stone color they come in black and blush as well. I’m kinda drooling over the blush pair!

Thank you again to anyone that reads, comments, or “likes” my page. The love and motivation keeps me going!

I always love my dresses from Bailey Blue Clothing, butttt I think this may be my favorite yet! The flowy skirt is so pretty and girly and the fit is so good! I generally love anything with bell sleeves. I pretty much fell in love with it before I knew how great the fit would be. The most beautiful detail is the print! I’ve been loving floral’s for every season. Pairing this dress with OTK boots is a great way to wear a dress in cooler weather. In spring I can switch it up and wear it with heels or wedges.

My friend Brandy from Basically Brandy Photography took these photos with my camera, she’s an amazing photographer! These pictures do not do her work justice since I edited them and they were taken with my camera. She specializes in wedding photography, but she’s good at everything! Definitely check her out!

I’m going to the coast this weekend with friends! I’m so excited because my best friend and I rarely get to do anything outside of work and to spend the night away from kids is so exciting for us!

I just finished reading The Winter people by Jennifer Mcmahon. Oh my gosh guys, it was such a great book! I highly recommend it, especially if you like suspenseful and eerie. Before that I read A Long Fatal Chase by Louisa May Alcott. I am a HUGE fan of Louisa and Little Women is one of my favorite books of all time so I had no doubt this book would be great. I have no idea why this book isn’t more popular! I loved it till the very end!

So ready for Spring!  Hope you all have a great week!

While looking over the JORD website this quote really stuck with me and I wanted to share it with all of you.

Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time.

I couldn’t agree more and this Dover Koa & Black Skeleton Face Wood Watch by Jord exemplifies this!

One of the most beautiful details of Jord watches are the display of the mechanics. I love that I visually know what makes my watch tick. The inner assembly of Jord pieces say just as much as the outer assembly does, intricate yet simple. The details of the movements are mesmerizing and adds to what makes your watch a unique work of art.

I find wood watches to be the best conversation pieces. When I wear mine people want to know who made it and where it came from and always comment on how much they love them! If you have been thinking about getting a wood watch check out the Men’s and Women’s collections!

If you love what you see, I have some amazing news!  I have partnered up with JORD for a giveaway for my readers.  One winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to spend on their own JORD watch!  It gets better!  Everyone who enters will receive a $25 gift certificate to JORD!  So either way just by entering you win!  Just click on the link below to enter!

GIVEAWAY

The deadline to enter is February 26, 2017.

You’ve probably seen Violet Ray’s fashionable bags at DSW, Francesca’s, at Target, or maybe even Instagram. When I first started blogging some of my favorite bloggers had Violet Ray bags and I always loved how on point and trendy they were! My first thought when seeing their bags is that, they look expensive!!! Myself and my wallet were very relieved to discover that they aren’t! Aside from being affordable and gorgeous, Violet Ray does not disappoint with the quality and construction of their bags! From the material to hardware the quality is so good!

I chose the Skylar Tote in the color charcoal because I loved the faux suede and the detailing of the stitching! I’m a sucker for details and their bags always have stylish and unique details you just can’t find anywhere else!

Some of our friends from our CrossFit gym competed in the Everyday Warrior competition in Salem last weekend! It was so much fun to watch! They did amazing and supported a great cause as well! I was worried about bringing Porter (I envisioned tantrums and lots of whining), but he did great and had so much fun!

This weekend John and I are going to the coast for birthday! I’m so excited for a day away with him! The possibility of maybe getting to sleep in feels like Christmas in January!

Hope everyone is doing great in this new year!
