MY TOP 20 LEOPARD PRINT PICKS FOR FALL

It’s no lie that I love a pop of leopard print in my wardrobe.  I mean let’s face it, leopard print is a neutral!  It kind of implies a sense of power too when you’re wearing it, and it can easily pull an entire outfit together.  I have rounded up my top 20 leopard print picks for fall!  Enjoy!

22 PIECES TO PACK FOR A TRIP TO EUROPE

We leave for a trip of a lifetime in exactly 2 weeks, but I started outfit planning like a year ago haha, kinda kidding, kinda not!  Knowing what to pack for Europe is a bit overwhelming, especially because I am notorious for being an over-packer.  In an attempt to have room in my suitcase for fun souvenirs, I am vowing to stick to somewhat of a capsule wardrobe.  This actually might be the most prepared I have ever been when packing for a vacation.  By writing this blog post it has really allowed me to dig in on how I can mix and match pieces from my closet!

  1. Comfy, but cute sneakers
  2. Sandals
  3. Mules
  4. Block Heel
  5. Crossbody Purse
  6. Sunnies
  7. Hat
  8. Bandana
  9. Swimsuit (depending on temps)
  10. Blue Jeans

CHOOSE A NEUTRAL COLOR PALETTE

By sticking to a neutral color palette, you will be able to better mix and match pieces to make different outfits from your wardrobe.  Pieces that are white, chambray, olive green or black will allow you to easily mix and match!

Pack accessories such as a bandana, sunnies, and a cute hat to help bring some fun to the simple pieces you packed.

A COMFY, BUT CUTE SNEAKER

When traveling to Europe, it’s inevitable that you will be walking A LOT.  You want to choose one that will look great with jeans, but can also be worn with dresses and skirts.

CONSIDER A RULE OF 3

When choosing what to pack for Europe, think of a rule of 3.  What are three different ways you could wear the item while on your trip.  You may want to be casual during the day when walking around doing touristy things, but then at night you may want to be dressier for a nice dinner.

Sunday Style | A Round Up of the Best Pajamas Under $50

Are you still rockin the sorority and frat t-shirts you got in college to bed each night?  Just me?  Well I’m on a mission lately to change this.  I have slowly started to build my pajama set collection and trade in these dingy tees for something cuter.  It seems like this is a trend all around lately given the number of amazingly cute options that I found out there.  So grab your morning cup of coffee and settle in (for 3 min or so) and snag yourself a cute pair of PJ’s.  Your husband or significant other will thank you!

Short Sets

Given the time of year, I love sleeping in matching short pajama sets.  There are so many cute prints right now, so there is literally something for everyone.  As I’m sure you’ve seen, fruits are on everything . . . particularly lemons.  And who can deny them, they are darling!  So let’s kick off this round up with a few fruity prints!

If you’re worried about the white lemon print pajama set above being too see through, check out this navy set!  I own pajamas that are this brand and they are SO comfortable and hold up well.

If lemons aren’t your fruit of choice, check out this watermelon print!  I love the black and white stripes with the pop of pink!  And you can’t beat the price on these either.

I told you I wasn’t kidding when I said I found several fruit print sets!  The colors on this set are so summery and perfect.

Did you know that Sam Edelman carries more than just shoes?! These bird print pajamas are darling and oh so comfy too!

Bird Print Satin Pajamas // $37

I have had my eye on these for months, not sure why I haven’t just purchased them because they are darling.  They do keep going in and out of stock, but they have continued to bring back because they are so popular.  They come in a pretty pink stripe as well!

I shared this set on my Instagram feed last week, you really can’t go wrong with stripes and florals!

I don’t know about you, but I’m loving these pops of green and pink in this cute cactus print set!  And the price is right too!

Cactus Print PJ Set // $42

This set is something I purchased from the Gap and wore in the hospital after having my son.  They are the absolute softest and sadly I cannot find them on their site any longer.  I am linking a pair from Target that is SO similar though.

Pant Sets

Pajama pants used to be something I owned a TON of, but then in the last few years I have purged some things and gotten rid of a lot of older pairs.  PJ pants are always so easy to throw on with a tee or tank after work, and I’ve rounded up a few of my faves from across the web!

You can never go wrong with blue and white.  These colors look great on everyone and they are a timeless pattern!

You didn’t think I was done sharing fruit prints with you did you?  Old Navy always has us covered in the PJ pant department!

This black and white set is similar to the short version above (different brand), but great price and includes long sleeves and pants.  My daughter was born in the winter months so when I had her, I actually wore basically this set in a different brand.  It would be great for an expecting mom!

H&M black and white set // $35

Sleep Shirts

Sleep shirts are another great option for feeling cute and staying cool in the warmer months.  I always find really cute ones at TJ Maxx and they are usually less than $20!

Another blue and white stripe (because, hello, timeless).  This one is under $30 and comes in a pink stripe too!

And last but not least, I give you this embroidered number.  We love the embroidered trend on shirts and denim lately, why not add it to your pajama collection too!  This one is under $20!

20 things you won’t believe are from Walmart!

I’ll be the first to admit, I don’t love going shopping in the actual store but recently I had to do some shopping in store and I’m so glad I did because I came across these top 20 things that you won’t believe are from Walmart!

Women

Walmart has a few new brands.  One of them is called Time and Tru.  It appears there is everything from clothing to jewelry available under this brand.  These gold floral earrings are only $4.  I probably wouldn’t recommend wearing these if you have sensitive ears, but they would be so fun for dressing up a tee shirt and jeans!  These are only available IN STORE so I can’t link them for you.

These little quirky clear pouches were mixed in with the bags and purses.  They kind of have a ban.do look to them.  These would be perfect for throwing in your beach bag this summer.  Also can’t find these online, but look in the accessories area if you’re in a Walmart.

So these hard case suitcases are all the rage right now in the blogger world.  This rose gold one is pretty darn cute and the price is pretty darn great.  BONUS – it gets good reviews too!

Ummm, how stinking cute is this seersucker cap?  It was $3 so you can bet this one went home with me.  It will be perfect for the summer! How cute would it be to put a monogram on the front of this?? I’m not finding this one to link for you either, but this was located in the accessories area as well!

Kids

So I discovered these adorable rain boots prior to Christmas and snagged a blue pair for Henry.  They came in handy for a wet Easter egg hunt this past weekend. They have so many more colors now!  You can’t beat the price either. These are linked below!

So little jelly sandals for girls were a big thing in the 80’s and 90’s and these totally reminded me of those!  These are by Wonder Nation (Walmart’s cute new brand for kids)!  And you can’t beat the price ($5).

Valentine’s Day Pretties

Valentine’s Day (aka the Hallmark Holiday) is exactly three weeks away!  While my husband and I don’t really make a big to do of the holiday, I thought it would still be fun to share with you all of the Valentine’s Day pretties that I’m loving lately.  You know, the best pink, red, and heart Valentine’s goodies I could find.  If money grew on trees, I would certainly buy myself each of these fun little things.  There are a few of these Valentine’s Day pretties making the list which I do own though so I wanted to make sure they were included in this list.  Happy Wednesday to all my loyal ladies!  Thanks for reading.
