Crazy for Culottes



1 // 2 // 3 // 4
5 // 6 // 7 // 8

I know what you must be thinking...the 90's are calling and they want this trend back. BUT! Let me tell you, I am kind of obsessed with this trend, both for work and the weekends! They're universally flattering (don't believe me? Read these reviews) and SO cute with heels, mules and flats. 

I bought these in white (size down if you buy!), as well as these jeans...and now I can't get enough!

Do you love this trend??

Fall Finds


Ahhh fall is in the air...the leaves are changing, the weather is cooling and the layers are coming out in full force! Here is just a sampling of items that I've been eyeing lately {you can always keep up with my favorite finds at the Shop My Favorites tab at the top too!}. Isn't that fur coat just calling your name? Me too! ;)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Our Labor Day Weekend



We spent this last weekend in Newport Beach to visit friends and some family.

This picture pretty much summarizes our weekend...it was a HOT one! Like a sweltering, humid, sticky kind of hot! Luckily there was a pool to distract the boys! ;)


Ethan was determined to finally swim on his own, sans life jacket. I was really impressed with his tenacity...he was a little fish all weekend! And he started treading water/swimming by the time we were ready to leave!


Wyatt was a bit more cautious!


Wyatt and his buddy O'Mara...little two year olds!


One of my favorite places in Newport to grab a coffee is Kit Coffee. It's such a cute little shop.


One highlight of the trip was seeing Courtney from A Thoughtful Place. She has become like a sister to me and I truly treasure our friendship. We always have the best time together! And it doesn't hurt that our husbands {both Ryans} like each other too! Also, her new home is AMAZING! Check it out here.


Later that night, we had a wedding to attend in Laguna Niguel. The dress I chose to wear was actually a romper and did not breathe at all, so I was literally dying a little bit in these pictures!


But it was really fun seeing my brother and sister-in-law amongst other family.


How stunning is this setting?


Sunday night, I met up with my girlfriends from high school. We had a super fun night out at Lido Marina Village!



And GUESS who we ran into at Nobu?? Kelly Dodd from Real Housewives of Orange County. She was really nice and so sweet to take a picture with us!


Overall, we had the best time! The boys did not want to leave and come back to reality! Neither do we!

I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend!

Ethan's First Day of Kindergarten



Shirt // Shoes c/o {they light up!} // Letter Board

It's hard to believe Ethan had his first day of kindergarten yesterday. Well, technically, it was a nice introduction day for both kids and parents...we were only there for a two-hour orientation...but the whole idea of Ethan starting school is so exciting and overwhelming! Ethan could hardly stand himself he was so excited. He got himself dressed and practically begged to have his picture taken with his new backpack. I'm so proud of this little guy and can't wait to see him take on this new chapter in life.

Meanwhile, if anyone has advice on how to manage younger sibling separation, let me know! Poor Wyatt was beside himself that he had to go to pre-school by himself today! :(

For more of my thoughts on Ethan heading to school, check out my article here.
