Clearly I’m currently obsessed with stripes! Especially in black and white! ITS so timeless! So is this dress from The Dainty Jewels! They have a wide variety of modest classic dresses! They specialize in bridesmaid dresses and even have gowns for little flower girls as well!

I for one can’t get enough midi dresses and skirts! I’m a little on the tall side so anything shorter than a midi looks like a mini skirt and me!! Midi’s are the perfect length you never have to worry that your are looking like a hoochie mama!!

This quilted cross body bag is my favorite new accessory! I hate always carrying around a giant bag everywhere! Sometimes I want a small bag that goes with my outfit not a huge diaper bag that competes with it. I take the smaller ones to church or maybe on a date. Mostly places I won’t need to pack a bag full of diapers and baby treats! This bag is usually only holding my phone, lipstick and a debit card! I will for sure be getting more small bags! This one is under $40!!!

I have been seeing amazing Olive Jackets here, there and everywhere!I searched and searched and I couldn’t find one that made my heart sing. I was head over heels for this Jacket when I laid eyes on it! Its totally an essential for any fall wardrobe! Its sooo versitile. Olive has totally become a neutral that goes with EVERYTHING! This Polka dot chambray button down from Mindy Mae’s Market also goes with everything so basically they are the perfect pair!

Recently I have been getting compliments on these jeans left and right! Every time that happens I cant help but laugh because these jeans are really old and really inexpensive! They are from forever 21, there fit ok but were SO NOT my favorite pair of jeans. Until I distressed them in my kitchen! Now they are like these custom jeans that everyone wants to know where they can find them!

At first I was nervous to cut and rip my own jeans but it was incredibly easy! Every time my Father-in-law sees me wearing these are any distressed jeans he always tries to hand me money to go buy jeans that aren’t so warn out! He is quite the Character! So here is a step by step so you can dress up any old pair of jeans!

Step 1. Go to your closet and find an old pair of jeans you wouldn’t be sad about throwing away in case they get ruined.

Step 2. Put the jeans on and take a piece of white chalk and make a small mark on the knees where you want the holes to be.

Step 3. Remove the jeans and use scissors to cut small horizontal holes over your chalk markings.

Step 4. Using your fingers tear open the holes as big as desired.

Step 5. pull out any white treads to give the more distressed look.

Step 6. Wash and dry the jeans so the holes will distress even more and look as if they have been wearing out for years!

I love when I get to bribe my little mini me to be in a post with me!! When I’m not forcing my girls to match each other, I’m forcing one or both to match me!! I know I wont be able to do this when they are a little older and find everything I do embarrassing so right now I take full advantage! I usually make Joss my little girl hair twin cause… all that hair! I have no idea where it all came from! I have always had the worst crappiest hair! Side note: I cut my bangs!! I’m still getting used to them again but so far I LOVE THEM!
