Well, I did it! I left my kiddos for about 36 hours to go to a work trip to New York City and I survived. Ha! Not that I ever thought I wouldn’t, but I was definitely nervous about it. Honestly what shocked me most about the trip is how exhausting it was. I know it might sound weird that that was surprising to me. Flying into New York landing at midnight waking up a few hours later (I think I got 3 hours of sleep) to work all day and then fly right back home sounds exhausting as I type it out. But something about those six hours on the plane uninterrupted sounded so relaxing to me! And it honestly was on the way there. But I think I was so tired by the time we flew back that I wanted to do was get in my bed and sleep. I think I walked in the door around midnight was in bed by 12:30 AM. Then Riley woke up at 2 AM to nurse, 5 AM to nurse, and then 6:30 AM for the day. So needless to say I’m pretty exhausted today. But I don’t mind at all because even when he woke up both of those times I was so excited to go in and snuggle him because I missed him so much!
So anyway, I spent most of this morning getting in some quality time with my kiddos and now I’m about to go out and about to run some errands! These photos are from last week when I wore the same outfit but I’m wearing it today so I thought it be a good day to blog about it! Trust me my hair and make up doesn’t look this cute today. Ha!
The look really revolves around this trench coat. I have another trench coat in this color so I wasn’t necessarily in the market for one but when I was browsing online I saw it on sale for $69! It’s by Badgley Mischka so to get a Badgley Miska coat for under $70 is a crazy good deal! It’s normally close to $200!!! I honestly never in 1 million years thought I’d be able to post about a Badgley Mishka jacket and be able to say that it’s affordable. So if you wanted to own a designer item to put in your closet this is definitely one to snatch up now! However, it is not a winter coat! This is definitely a spring and even summer night time jacket. But spring will be here before we know it so I would snatch up this one before it’s gone. The reviews are pretty good. There are a few negative reviews lately which is completely shocking to me. I am obsessed with it! I’ll do some Instagram stories later to show you guys it in the video. I highly recommend it! And if you get it and don’t love it you can always return with the label in the box. Super easy. If you get it please comment on this blog post and tell me what you think. I love it soooo much and I want to know your thoughts!
And you can wear it so many ways. You can wear an over dress for a super chic look. Or you can wear it casually like I am in these photos. With a blue chambray button up shirt and a white T-shirt. And yes, this is the white T-shirt that I blog about all the time! It’s the best $19 you will ever spend! Someone DM’d me on Instagram the other day and asked me if I own 100 white T-shirts because I wear them almost every day. And the answer is, I don’t own 100 but I do own about 15 of these white T-shirts! And that’s because yes, I do wear them almost every single day! It’s my favorite piece of clothing I own!
I’m wearing a pair of high-waisted jeans. I really love this pair but they’re slightly small on me right now. They were my pre-baby jeans (or pre-Riley jeans rather) and now they’re a bit tight but I still love them so I wear them. I threw on converse because I am running errands. But you could totally dressed this up with a nude heal. And really you could carry any purse but I went with this tan tote.
Oh and I’m wearing my jewelry line of course! I had so much fun with this line that I’m actually designing another collection! But I hope you guys get some of these pieces too! Our tribe necklace is back in stock! When I first posted about it it’s sold out so quickly that we had to re-order a bunch more. I love it because it’s basically a new were version of a BFF necklace. Get one for yourself and your besties to proudly show who your tribe is. I also think it would be a great gift for a sorority. I wear it with my bestie and I absolutely love it! I’m also wearing the last fling ring from my collection and a few stackable rings that are simple and easy to throw on for every day wear.
Anyway, I’m out running some errands with the kiddos and feeling so good to be back home with them! I hope you guys are having a great Friday and have a great weekend! And what do you guys think about my hair down while I have you? I’m really trying to be more adventurous and step out of my comfort zone by wearing it down more often. I’m kind of liking it right now. I used to hate it! Let me know what you think! Should I wear it down more often?
