.bright tassels.

the moment I saw this skirt I knew I needed to take it home! the color, the tassels, the little cut outs, the fabric ... I could go on and on about why it's THEE perfect summer skirt! everyone needs one in their life ;) it's such a breathable cotton material and I can see myself styling it countless ways this season :) in the summer months I tend to go a little bit more bohemian with my style and start imagining I'm like a gypsy or something ;) it's so fun! 
do you change your style from season to season??

Navi was killing me in this adorable little dress, the details embroidered on are the exact color match to my skirt so you know we just HAD to coordinate our looks?! ;) with undone hair, no shoes, we are ready for those long summer days! we don't go to bed until 10:30 or later ;) it's just too nice outside to stop playing! and this bump you guys! I feel like it just keeps showing up out of nowhere. I felt like I had like nothing and then now I feel like a basketball (and it's only going to get worse ;) haha) I'm almost 22 weeks and already feel a little ahead of the game with all the baby clothes washed, starting to organize the girls' closet and (working on) picking out a name. usually I procrastinate until the end on everything but I just want to be prepared this time! 

shop my wedges and other similar styles :)

.it's a ... .

well it's true! this october we're due with another sweet and sassy lady! :) I'm so happy to FINALLY share this news with you all. part of me really loves keeping secrets ;) I think of it like a little game - and I just kept saying that I should just not 'officially' announce anything and that one day this fall we'd just all of a sudden have a new baby in our family ;) but it's getting a tad hard to hide. I am not the type to 'flaunt' things, and it's not that I don't love being pregnant because I totally do! it's just not in my personality to go overboard with sharing the word ;) so here I am, at 20 weeks spilling the beans that we -are- in fact PREGNANT! and are so so happy! we've known since the last day of february that we were pregnant and I feel just so blessed! it took us 1 1/2 years about to get pregnant with Navi and honestly only about a month with this one ;) it's been so fun to see her at the ultrasounds, and this past week was when we found out for sure that our babe, is indeed a girl! 

Navi is going to be the best big sister! she loves baby dolls and is obsessed with kids her age and younger, anytime we see a child out somewhere she has to wave and say hi. she's just so friendly and wants to hug them all! she's the biggest helper and just wants to please! she's the snuggliest, funniest, and wants to do everything that everyone else is doing. she's growing up too fast - and I'm just trying to soak in all of her adorableness! ;) she's so very loved and we're excited to add another 'diva' to the mix. I grew up having a brother right under me, my sister being 5 years younger .. we did grow up and play together but once I started those teen years I was jealous I didn't have a closer relationship with my sister. (now that we're adults we're very close!) I'm hopeful that Navi and this little one will grow up being the very best of friends. I'm so grateful to our Heavenly Father for trusting us with another beautiful baby. the timing is perfect for us, and I can't even wait to meet her! 

I feel in denial that it's a girl again (just because that's what we secretly, not so secretly wanted ;) I can't even describe the excitement I have over this new baby. seeing her face, her lips so perfectly, her tiny hands and toes in the ultrasound this week made it all so real. I'll be honest I wasn't having a big connection with this baby as much as Navi - fear of 'how could I love another as much as I love my first baby?' crept in .. I know that's so foolish to think (however not uncommon), I think everyone goes through those thoughts of the unknown but after seeing our littlest, growing girl this week, I know without a doubt I'll love her the same as our Navi girl. 

this pregnancy so far ...

the first trimester was hard, I was definitely a lot more sick, and was SO exhausted, seriously all I wanted to do was sleep and eat ;) eating is the only thing that helped my nausea. I've craved hamburgers, and a lot of eggs! I'm used to wearing flowy, loose tops so I've tried hiding it as long as possible ;) but I definitely have a little bump there! I'm carrying low (but I did with Navi too) so I think nothing of it. I've gained about 15 pounds so far - eeh! I certainly don't work out or watch what I eat ;) and hey, if my body needs food I'm not going to stop it. I can squeeze into literally 1 pair of my regular jeans and then usually at home I'm in sweat pants ;) my skin was breaking out pretty bad but my hair and nails seem to be growing like weeds, which I'm grateful! I've been using my 'bio oil' and trying hard to stay hydrated which I believe has helped protect against stretch marks. I can tell you right now I'll be living in the pool this summer! I feel very fortunate to have such a supportive and loving husband that deals with my crazy emotions! he really is -thee- perfect man to be dealing with all of the estrogen we'll have in our home ;) haha! as for names, we are stumped! absolutely clueless. well we have a few ideas but nothing sounds quite right yet. I'm going to try not stressing over the name until I see her, and I -hope- by then we'll know what suits her best :) who else loves to pick the name far in advance??? with Navi - I just knew, my first girl would be named that, and now I've used my favorite name ;) so I'm open to suggestions.

so now what?? posts have been a little sparce the past few months and I certainly haven't been super involved in my lipsense business either. I took a bit of a backseat as I was getting over the sickness and adjusting to the busy life of an almost 2 year year old ;) hello! wake up call for when there are two kiddos in this house! as for my blog .. you can expect outfit posts as usual (maternity style ;) and a lot more kids home and fashion here too :) I'm curious, what would you like to see more of here on my site?? 

have a fabulous day my friends!

.summer florals.

I love wearing breezy dresses in the summer months and there's something bohemian about wearing dresses with lace up shoes that just gets me all sorts of excited ;) I've linked a bunch of beautiful summer dresses and fun shoes of course! 

so funny story ... these pictures were taken while I was in canada on vacation a couple weeks ago, and right before our trip I decided I wanted to color my hair - well I couldn't get in to any of my favorite hair gals soooooo I just did it myself. it took two days of toning, bleaching and everything in between but I'm pretty proud of myself for just even trying - and hey. maybe I'll always do my own hair now ;) I used to bleach my whole head of hair back in high school so I thought 'how hard can it be to add highlights?' haha, it's definitely harder than I expected and I so appreciate people's skill and talent in doing hair! 

thank you for stopping by! and happy dress shopping!

.valentino sale.

(mine featured in the image are the color 'powder')

I just found my exact heels for half off! there are a bunch of other beautiful colors available ;) I may have snagged up a pair for myself for my birthday :) but you'll just have to wait and see what I've chosen! I linked the pinks/nudes in the images below, but once you hit the website you'll be able to see more color options, there are blues, black, and other neutrals too! :) happy shopping! the kitten heels are SO comfortable! I wore them over the weekend and overtime I put them on I just get so happy! I love how they dress up any outfit :)

.white denim contrast.

I love wearing white denim in the summer, this black floral top was the perfect contrasting piece against my bright white jeans! I love things that make a statement and this outfit is bold without being too wild. keeping the shoes a light, simple color allows my top to really be the highlight here. I adore the sleeve detail on this blouse, it's just so feminine and right on trend too! I'll link below more ruffled things ;) because I really can't get enough!

.summertime prints.

I'm so happy with the combination of prints here, like for real tho. I think flowers and polka dots should always be paired together! don't you think too???!!! it's just such a happy combination. I wore this look to church a few weeks ago, and felt kind of like a 'teacher' lol my mind always thinks I'm a teacher when I wear this midi skirt, and to keep things fun and a bit spicy ;) I added just a nude pump and a pretty printed blouse. skirts like this can look dated and frumpy (both words I don't love!) so full midi skirts need to be (another thing I'm nervous to say...) 'sexy'. lol hence, the nude heels! 

what do you think of this outfit??? I personally love it, and I felt so good wearing it :) maybe my silly references mean nothing to anybody else, but I know what works for me and my body and sometimes we just have to experiment with different looks until we find that dream combination :)

I hope you're having a beautiful week! :)
