Toddler Survival Kit : The Fourth Of July

Toddler Survival Kit : The Fourth Of July

Let’s be real, those summer time holidays aren’t as fun with little ones. Of course they have their moments and everything is special because maybe it’s their first Independence Day or they’re big fans of fireworks.  But it gets to a point where all you […]

If you follow my Instagram account for the blog than you know, I’m taking a much-needed break from social media aka Instagram and Facebook. The break is truly for my sanity, and to be perfectly honest I’m really battling with my postpartum anxiety again. To […]

Hello Monday…Ooops I mean Wednesday!

Hello Monday…Ooops I mean Wednesday!

Oops! I’m not going to lie I forgot what day it was. I took some time out this weekend and stepped away from the blog/social media. I really just needed some space to reflect and center my thoughts. Even though I love Happily In Style and all my website brings to my like sometimes stepping away even for just a weekend can be refreshing. As of Sunday night I was feeling well rested and ready to get back to it, a little time away was just want I needed. Only problem was since I took the weekend off I constantly keep thinking it is the weekend. (isn’t that just the worst!!) Plus I was so focused on sharing my new JORD campaign with everyone (Giveaway can be found here) that my regular blog schedule fell to the waist side. Even worse,  I got food poisoning yesterday which really threw me for a loop. So it wasn’t till this morning when I was finally feeling better that I realized I would be publishing my, “Hello Monday!” post on a Wednesday! So while it certainly isn’t Monday I’m still going to give a big HELLO to good ole’ Monday and the week! It may have been a rocky start but I’m ready for the week and the warmer spring weather!

I loved last Monday’s post so m much and from the numbers it seemed like everyone out there did as well. So I’m keeping with that trend and discussing a new trend I’m loving and seeing everywhere. The trend I’m discussing? Platform shoes, not just any platform shoe, the wooden platform Oxford. I’m a big fan of Oxford shoes and am constantly buying them for my husband. There’s something about seeing a man pair Oxford shoes with dark denim and a nice button that I just love. They can complete any men’s wear look and now you can find them in a platform version for women (#winning)

This new twist on a classic men’s piece embodies everything fun and flirty about spring and in my opinion they’re a “must-have” for anyones spring wardrobe. The question is can I pull these babies off? I desperately want to test a pair out but I’m nervous. You’ll just have to wait and see if I take the plunge into this trend or not! Until then check out a few of my favorite styles as inspiration for your own spring wardrobe! Happy Monday….I meannn, Wednesday, Happy Wednesday 😂

Motherhood Update: Bodhi at 2 Month

Motherhood Update: Bodhi at 2 Month

The Little Things

The Little Things

I did some fall cleaning to the blog and renamed my “Few of My Favorite Things” section to “The Little Things”. The makeover came after a recently realization that I need to appreciate the little things in my life more. I can post about my favorite new products and things all I want and there’s nothing wrong with that but I realized I didn’t really have a space for those little things in life that make it all worth it. So this is going to become my space for that. Where I focus on those special moments in life that make up those great memories my family and I will have for years to come!

It’s finally here, the weekend and not just any weekend but the first fall like weekend of the season. As a kid a weekend like this one would be our first weekend home. My mom used to pack us up and take us to the beach for every weekend well into the end of September and even early October. For us, fall didn’t truly start until the weather was cold enough to make a beach weekend not worth it. That weekend was always both exciting and eye roll worthy. We would finally do fall things, like picking up pumpkins with my dad (You would catch my mom near a pumpkin patch or anything fall like) and baking cookies BUT we also had to change over our closets for fall and winter. As a child I dreaded that part but it’s funny how as an adult it has become one of my favorite things to do. So here’s to a great fall weekend, we will be transitioning our closets, hitting up our favorite farmers market and having as much fall fun as possible.
