You know that person who has all their Christmas cards sent, gifts bought and presents wrapped to perfection under the tree by the first week of December? Um, yeah…that is NOT me. I wish it were.

December Lit List: Books for Gifting

If you’re still in need of some last-minute presents, I’ve got you covered. This lit list is full of giftable reads—from children’s picture books to luxe coffee table tomes and cult-favorite cookbooks. I especially love giving books because they can be used over and over, talked about and shared with others long after they’ve finished reading. A gift that truly keeps on giving!

Christmas Gift Guide

It’s officially gift-giving season and I am officially WAY behind on my Christmas shopping. In hopes of getting organized and inspired, I pulled together 50+ ideas for all your gifting needs. Some are splurges, some are steals. Some we already have in our home and others are things I wouldn’t mind finding for myself under the Christmas Tree (hint hint, Jared). I hope you’ll find some unexpected gifts you can

Holiday Clothes Shopping With Amazon Fashion Prime Wardrobe

With three small kids and a husband who works the week in a foreign country, clothes shopping can be a bit of a challenge these days (and probably explains why Odette mainly wears her brother’s hand-me-downs). Lugging the kids to the mall to try anything on kinda feels like the tenth circle of parenting hell. And it inevitably leads to a sympathy purchase after one of my children accidentally breaks

3 Prints to Wear This Fall

Happy fall! I know, I know, it’s already mid-October and I’m a little late to the party, but it’s just now starting to cool off here in Austin and I can’t wait to finally indulge in a little fall fashion. It’s my favorite style season. The warm colors, luxe plaids, cozy knits, leather boots and structured coats—it’s everything I love. And in the spirit of mixing things up (hello, Gen

10 Toddler Shoes I Love

Toddler Shoes Now and Get

Whenever Odette runs out of eyesight, I’m 99% sure she’s in my closet pulling out shoes. I guess you could say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, because I love a good shoe—whether it’s a sky-high heel, classic Converse, or beat-up cowboy boots from my days on Wildfire. But nothing is cuter than a pair of toddler shoes. Something about the tiny footwear just makes my heart melt

How to Rock the Yellow Trend

I usually live in earth tones, but have fallen hard for the vibrant, punchy shades of yellow you can find just about everywhere right now. Known as Gen Z yellow, the hue is this season’s “it” color and I have to admit I was skeptical at first. Bright colors have just never been my thing. That is, until I discovered this canary-colored bag by Espie Roche. Not only is it
