My Go To Accessory - Hats

Monday, March 19, 2018

Hands down my favorite thing to add to any outfit is a hat! It's the easiest thing to throw on when you don't want to do your hair OR you just want to complete your look without getting to dressed up. I'd say I end up throwing a hat on 2-3 days a week. I'm a really minimal accessory gal, I think less is more so I always have a few go to simple necklaces or hats that go with everything that I can wear over and over. I'm sure a lot of you are big fans of dry shampoo too so this is the cure all to that last day hair before you're forced to wash it, ha!

Especially with being pregnant I am sticking to really simple outfits and buying shoes and accessories to switch it up. I've started hearing more about a capsule wardrobe and I'm so interested! Basically you have like 25 pieces in your entire closet (5 of everything) that all can be interchanged and worn in different patterns and create a different outfit everyday. It really simplifies your wardrobe and style and you can switch it up for different seasons. Have you heard of that? I think it's genius! In a world that is so obsessed with quantity and having more I think it's so refreshing to have a few bloggers I follow sharing how they really dress or have cut back on clothing to create a few staple outfits they actually wear over and over.

 I have an addiction to shoes and beauty products but I could for sure simplify my wardrobe with a few favorite pieces - I feel like I usually wear my favorite things over and over through a season anyways! What would you put in your spring wardrobe? I would for sure do a tight t-shirt dress, jeans, a cute blouse (one with "poofy" sleeves or embroidery) and then maybe a cargo jacket and some birkenstocks. Then mix in a few t-shirts and switch up the accessories like hats! Right? If you have any idea go comment on my instagram post with this outfit!

Our Amazon Bed - Review!

Thursday, March 15, 2018

It's no secret that Dylan and I like to be frugal and have to be careful with where we spend money. We have to save and research for a long time before making purchases and so I like to think that although we don't have the BEST of everything out there, we do know how to make a small living space and alot of kids feel like a comfortable home and we work hard at that. We have gone YEARS without an actual headboard. I have found so many I love but kept telling myself to wait until we could fit a king size or to just wait for something more affordable. I change my mind all the time on style so I like to spend as little as possible but still get something that's quality. I've burned myself before being cheap but not this time.

Introducing, the $153 bed off Amazon. (praise jesus emoji) I decided to purchase this because of the reviews it already had but so many friends wanted an indepth look at it so I decided to write a little post about it and document the process of putting it together.

First of all it's on Amazon so it ships right to your door in 2 boxes. SO easy. I think we paid an addtional $30 in shipping plus tax but even still it was the most affordable bed I could even find!
We honeslty were able to put it together in about an hour so in my book that took the cake. We have spent far to much time fighting over Ikea furniture so I knew that was not even an option this time.

Overall: We love it and it's a great first bed purchase! One day we will upgrade but for now it's so perfect for our small room and makes our room feel put together and like an adult bedroom. Since I know you're wondering yes the bed is very sturdy and doesn't move around or shift when you get in and out of it. And

The company had a bunch of different types of beds and colors so if you're interested check them out! The only downfall we had was that it came in 2 separate boxes within 4 days so that was a bummer but we waited less than 2 weeks for the bed so I can't complain. It only took about 1.5 hrs total to put together and was so easy!

If you're in need of a bed try this one out and please let me know if you do! I love it when anyone writes me and says they bought something I recommended and actually loved it too.

We bought this bed and genuinely wanted to share an affordable and great find
