Casual Outfit Idea + Little Life Update

December 19, 2016

Happy Monday everyone! How are you all? This is an easy casual outfit idea which fits perfectly with life lately. A great pair of distressed jeans, a striped tee, blush cardi (I’m obsessed), and my current favorite booties (on sale!) made me feel put together without trying. A hat hid my extra dirty hair. Just keeping it real here.

I thought I’d share a little life update. I haven’t gotten to do that much since we brought sweet Ivy home. It’s almost stupid how much I love her. She is seriously the best ever. Even on hard days that follow sleepless nights, I cannot help but remember thankful I am to be her mom. I shared this on Instagram, but her name means faithfulness and that is exactly what we see in God through this journey to parenthood. It’s hard to believe I am typing this, but our sweet girl is now over a month old. Whoa. Where did time go?!

Since Ivy is a premie, we were encouraged to stay in the house and even limit visitors to our house through the end of flu and RSV season. I think this is probably important for all babies born this time of year but especially when they are extra little. All that to say, we’ve been getting lots of snuggle time at home which is totally fine with me! It does mean I haven’t been getting out much and probably won’t be any time soon. All that to say, I try to keep outfits on the blog ones I have really worn. This is something I wore one of the handful of times I have gotten out of the house when Ivy and I both had a doctor appointment.

    Awww, I’m so glad you guys are settling in with your beautiful baby girl! And keeping her inside is probably best- it’s just too damn cold in the Midwest right now, and flu season is NO joke.

    Love this outfit, lady- polished but cool!
