Happy Friday, Y'all!  Every once in a while, I find it necessary to share my current favorite shoe picks.  I am a shoe junkie.  I not only love my basic color shoes (the browns, blacks, nudes, etc.), but I also love having fun printed and patterned shoes to spice things up a little.  For instance, I love the gingham check pair (#11) above and would pair them with denim, a white top or sweater, and a bright colored accessories (red, pink, or yellow necklace probably).  I am completely obsessed with pair #2 on the list!  Check out those fun multi-colored studs on them.  They come in the prettiest color pink as well.  And how about those tassel wedges (#10) for the summer?!  They would definitely be a go-to pair.  Also, if you can't tell from my list, I'm most definitely a flats girl.  I'd say 90% of the shoes in my closet are flats haha.

Which do you wear most...flats or pumps?  And which pair is your favorite?

Delightfully Yours,

Printed Skirt

J.Crew
Yurman
Preppy
Ferragamo Pumps
Preppy Style
Geometric
Statement Necklace
Pop Of Color

Hey Friends!  Y'all know that I love styling my outfits with a pop of color whenever I can.  I'm loving this top, not only because it's a perfect color yellow, but also because of the cute crochet details.  This skirt has also been a go-to for me.  It is so easy to style!  J.Crew Factory always has the cutest skirts that offer numerous styling options.  It has been feeling like spring the past few days, but it's suppose to get down to freezing this weekend?  The weather has been weird the past few months.  At first, I was pretty annoyed with being so uncomfortable in winter clothes, but now I'm beginning to feel ready for spring.

Thanks for reading!  I hope y'all are having a great week!

Delightfully Yours,

Me: Sweater // Denim // Necklace (on sale for $28!!) // Jack Rogers C/O
Madeline: Sweater // Leggings // Bow // Jack Rogers C/O

Happy Monday, Y'all!  It's officially less than two weeks until Valentine's Day.  I'm so excited to be sharing this fun Valentines post featuring these matching Jack Rogers for both mama and baby.  I mean, HOW CUTE are these?!  This was my first time actually seeing the baby Jack Rogers in person, and they are the most adorable things ever.  I will definitely be purchasing another pair for Madeline this spring.  I think this matching Jacks set would be the perfect surprise for both mama and baby on Valentine's Day.

Also, I just wanted to say how much I love these pictures of Madeline.  They capture her little personality perfectly.  She's the happiest, most curious baby ever, and she has just stolen my heart forever.  Madeline is my Valentine, and she forever will be.  That became official last year when I was pregnant with her.  As she was growing, my love for her was growing so much more.  I never knew I could love someone this much.  It's a love like no other...a love that God created between a mother and child.  Also, Madeline became my Valentine when I had my Valentine's Day theme baby shower given to me last year.  It was such a special time.  I have been reminiscing so much on this time a year ago, and it's bittersweet. Time has gone by so fast.  Can y'all believe she's ten months old today?!  I wish I could freeze time. 

P.S. Are y'all obsessed with hearts as much as I am? :)

Valentine's Day Favorites

Valentine's Day

Happy Friday, Y'all!  Today I am sharing some of my favorite Valentine's Day related items.  I love hearts, so having an excuse to wear a heart printed something makes me really happy.  I have been dressing Madeline in hearts for the past few weeks as well.  I just can't get enough!  So many of these items I have listed above would make the perfect Valentine's Day present.  Check out the matching Jack Rogers for mama and baby...I'm completely obsessed!  I have always loved Valentine's Day for the reason of red, pink, and hearts. There are so many darling Valentine's Day related items out there.  I had to stop myself with these, but the list could keep going haha :)

Which is your favorite?

Delightfully Yours,

Cable Knit Cardigan

Plaid Skirt
Riding Boots
Monogrammed Kate Spade

Happy Wednesday, Y'all!  I have been wearing this grey cable knit cardigan all too much.  I wore this outfit to church this past Sunday. It was a chilly day, so layering this outfit with this cardigan was the perfect amount of extra warmth.  I'm telling you, it goes with everything as it is so versatile!

... 

I hope y'all are having a great week!  It has been a busy one over here, and I'm excited for the weekend.  Madeline is officially cutting her first tooth, so there have been lots of extra cuddles over here.  She is at the cutest stage right now (I say that with each and every new stage we get to haha).  She has recently learned to clap for herself, pulls up on everything, and has even attempted (and succeeded) at standing up for a few seconds on her own.  Her little personality is the sweetest.  She is so loving!  My favorite thing she is doing right now is giving kisses.  It is especially so cute to watch her go through her stuffed animals as she will take each one out of the basket and give it a kiss.  These are the sweetest times, and I never want them to end :)

What have y'all been up to lately?

Delightfully Yours,

Happy Monday, Y'all!  I hope this new week is off to a great start for everyone.  And I hope everyone had a great weekend!  We actually ended up getting some snow.  We woke up on Saturday to  snow everywhere!  Needless to say, I was shocked but so excited for Madeline's first snow.  She didn't know what to think but that may be because of the fact that I had her out in it at 7:30 in the morning.  It was pretty much melted away by 9ish as it began to warm up.  It was so much fun to watch her experience it. 

It has been so chilly here lately, so I have been wanting to wear scarves.  This one is a favorite that I purchased back in the fall.  It is still available and on sale!  The colors go with so much.  Also, did you notice that I have joined the Fitbit club (thanks to Jaclyn)?! I am obsessed!  I have gotten back into walking every morning, so it has been perfect.  And the best part?  There is this huge sense of accomplishment you feel when you reach your daily goal.  I purchased this fun Tory Burch bracelet to keep it in, so that I can more easily pair it with outfits when I'm not working out.

Are you a Fitbit user?  If so, how have you enjoyed yours?  I'd love to hear :)

Delightfully Yours,

Things I'm Loving

Happy Friday, Friends!  Since this weekend is a cold and rainy one for many (still praying to maybe, just maybe, see some snow here) and a snowy one for others, I thought it would be fun to share a few things that have captured my attention recently.  I hope y'all enjoy!



Here is something that will for sure be a bright spot on your Instagram feed. Botanical artist, Bridget Beth Collins, shares her floral artwork that is pretty incredible on her Instagram (@Flora.Forager).  I had a hard time deciding which of her photos to share because each and every one is pretty amazing! They never fail to put a smile on my face.  Go follow her now! 

       

I am so going to try this!  I saw it on Pinterest and couldn't get over how yummy and clever these are.  How perfect are they for Valentine's Day?!  They are like an inverted chocolate covered strawberry.

Three // Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer 


Do yourself a favor and buy some of this now!  One thing that I never find the time to do (#momlife) is moisturize my skin.  As I was complaining about my dry skin, my sister recommended this to me and it is amazing!  You simply apply it to your wet skin right as you get out of your shower/bath then dry off after you apply it.  My skin has been so moisturized ever sense I started using it.

Four // Pretty iPhone Cases
1 // 2 // 3 // 4
Seriously, how pretty are these iPhone cases?!  I saw the "Walk By Faith" one featured in a Casetify advertisement on Instagram and had to search for it.  Upon finding it, I also fell in love with so many more. Check out the artist The Olive Tree to see more.

Five // Changing The Face of Beauty

Changing the Face of Beauty
This mother of a child with down syndrome is changing beauty standards.
Posted by HuffPost Women on Thursday, January 14, 2016

This video absolutely touched my heart.  Here's the story of a mom (Katie Driscoll) and her daughter Grace, who has Down Syndrome.  Together, they are Changing The Face of Beauty with a movement they began in 2012.   It is such a powerful and amazing movement.  My Uncle Doug has Down Syndrome, and he is the biggest joy of our family.  This story really meant a lot to me.  

Well, that's it for now!  What are some things recently that have caught your eye?  Have a great weekend and stay warm :)

Delightfully Yours,
