black + camel {part one}

happy FRIDAY friends !!!

woohoo! we made it through yet another week.. i seriously cannot believe how fast october has flown by! we are in the last week and it is still freakin hot in san diego -- luckily it has cooled down some -- talking high 80s low 90s, better than 100 degrees it was earlier in the week.

literally, baby C and i were melting. it was no fun going out in that heat but we were also going a little stir crazy staying inside all day. needless to say, baby C and i are both missing our afternoon strolls around the neighborhood and playing at the park. can't wait for cooler fall days -- praying that the weather changes very soon and stays! 

in other news, you are all probably sick of me complaining {so sorry, can't help it} but any other mamas out there feeling like me or having a little bit of a rough time with their littles, please say hey! wow! this month has been S T R U G G L E city for me and baby c. she has not been sleeping well, so granted neither have i. luckily i have an AHHHHMAZING hubby and baby daddy he usually gets up with her after i feed her early in the morning if she won't go back to sleep, and lets me snooze for a few more hours. but man! she still wakes up super early and sometimes wakes up one to two times a night. after my cry for help on instagram earlier in the week -- i'm now convinced it definitely started as a sleep regression we were not able to get out of and BAM now she's teething. i defnitely think her top two teeth are coming in soon and that has been bothering her lately. she can be super needy and clingy.. and lets just say i am not coping well at all. so any mamas out there that can relate, would love to hear how you cope with so many sleepless nights, interrupted sleep, fussy, teething baby? i'm losing my mind haha

anywho, enough of that! right? i need more positivity in my mind -- i've also started BBG again so i'll try to keep you updated on that -- just finished my first week and whoa its a killer but so good! i'm hoping this kinda helps me with everything else thats going on and i also wouldn't hate having me pre-pregnancy body back! haha! its so hard sometimes to find balance with work, family, relationships, babies, yourself, working out, etc etc so i'm trying to slowly get back on track and figure out a little more me time because i think that will help my situation a little bit so we will see how that goes! anyone do BBG?? let me know! 

{ what i'm wearing }

sweater blazer || faux leather leggings || black tee || suede flats || leopard clutch

okie dokie now the real good stuff haha MY FAVORITE COLOR COMBO for fall -- B L A C K  +  C A M E L !!! i don't know what it is about this color combo its so damn good -- neutral, simple and super chic. there are so many ways to achieve this color combo and i love wearing all black and throwing on one or two pieces that are in the camel color family. this time i opted for this new camel sweater blazer i got recently with camel suede pointed toe flats. if you know me, you know how obsessed i am with mules, so these flats kinda remind me of mules and they add a nice classic vibe to my outfit. back to this camel sweater blazer -- it is such a perfect piece to add to your fall wardrobe! because it is sweater material, its soft and easy to throw over anything and its not too dressy to wear everyday but not super casual either if you feel like dressing it up. its the perfect length, not too long, covers the bum -- literally PERFECT! so as much as like classic looks, i had to spice up the all black ensemble by wearing faux leather leggings because why not?! i love mixing textures in the fall so i really love the sweater blazer against the leather leggings. and leather leggings are a must for fall -- this pair is super comfortable and easy to wear with ANYTHING! it would look so good with a chunky knit and OTK boots, or wanna a more sassy sexy vibe, opt for a pretty blouse and some leopard high heel pumps -- you know how much i love leopard! and of course i tied in this perfect color combo with this perfect leopard foldover clutch! i mean this clutch will be my sidekick all fall long -- haha when i don't have the baby with me that is! but it fits everything i need and has a pretty gold chain strap if you wanna wear it crossbody style!

keepin' it casual

happy H U M P day babes !!!

i feel like today should be friday for some reason.. i have no idea why i don't usally feel like this but for some reason the week seems to be draaaaggggin and i'm not exactly sure why. maybe its just my mom brain and for some odd reason i can't keep my days in order and i just have friday on the brain. haha. 

okie dokie so i'm gonna keep this short and sweet because i'm exhausted #momlife! this is has been my go-to outfit lately -- just switching out my sweaters and cardigans haha -- waiting for the temps to drop much more so i can stay in my sweaters all day.. and you need a chenille sweater in your life! this exact one is out of stock but i found a very very  similar one in four different colors -- and i want them all!! 

{ what i'm wearing }

cardigan || tank, another great option here || jeans, also here and similar (cheaper) option here || mules

baby C always comes on my shoots with me these days! she’s always laughing and getting excited when she sees me walking around haha! she's always such a good girl!

we are still going through a bit of a sleep regression and I feel guilty for saying this but it’s driving me crazy! i feel like a completely different person - - around her i’m good and she always makes me smile but when i’m by myself or with my hubby sometimes i just lose it. they say it gets easier but i am having a hard time seeing the light, being more positive.. i know it’s kinda terrible.. but i don’t do well with lack of sleep - - my mind and my body just feel off.. any mamas that can relate? would love some tips ❤️

have a fabulous day!

OMG happy OCTOBER !!! I know I am a few days late but I've been moving pretty slowly lately with a baby and all.. plus she's moving all over the place and going through a sleep regression so its been a little challenging trying to get anything done.. so here I am finally.. I know I've been MIA again.. trying to get back into a regular schedule so bear with me! 

anywho, since it is now october and fall is officially here -- although the weather in san diego would suggest it is most definitely NOT fall yet -- but i have to share my most favorite fall must-haves with you! there are no huge surprises here, you've probabaly seen this stuff everywhere already but i have to share what i love to wear during the fall and pretty much the winter too! i have to say, fall is my favorite season -- at first i wasn't so sure what my favorite season was but for sure after the last couple weeks craving some crisp cool air and sweater weather, i have to say i absolutely love fall! i love the cooler weather (when san diego weather decides to cooperate haha ), i love pumpkin anything for the most part -- little pumpkins are so cute to decorate the house with, the pumpkin patch is fun to visit and of course pumpkin pie..i am also eating a pumpkin cereal bar as i write this haha; i love candles (and yes, while i burn candles all the time it just seems like a fall thing and they have such amazing scents in the fall), i love oversized cozy sweaters, booties and OTK boots, giant blanket scarves -- so many wonderful things for fall! haha. so lets just go ahead and get started with my must-haves!

{ C O Z Y  S W E A T E R S }

ok so let's start with the most common wardrobe staple for fall - sweaters! i love sweaters i just love feeling comfy and cozy and cute and sweaters just do that for me. there are so many fabulous sweaters -- different textures and styles -- and i of course want all the super soft ones! and you can always dress up or dress down a sweater -- i love to wear them super simple and easy with leggings or jeans with either a pair of flat mules or cute sneakers, but sweaters are also great with midi skirts and booties or block heel mules! and besides pull over sweaters, i also love cardigans! they are perfect transitional piece from summer to fall because its always starts off cool in the morning, gets warm in the middle of the day and by evening its chilly again, so cardigans are perfect because you can layer them and take them off no problem! i also love that you can drape oversized cardigans over your shoulders or ahve them fall off your shoulders for a cute yet sassy look! see, sweaters are perfect! so i will share all the sweaters and cardigans i just got or am absolutely loving right now!


{ M U L E S }

another fall favorite of mine are mules or are they called slides or loafers -- not sure exactly which term haha but you'll see below what i'm talking about.. i love mules because they are super comfortable and easy to wear with just about anything! i love them with skirts or jeans or leggins or even dresses. they are literally perfect when i don't want to wear high heels or casual sneakers but i still want to be comfortable and slightly dressed up. and there are so many to choose from with different textures and prints! they just give any outifit a cool chic vibe, ya feel me? check out some really amazing ones below!




{ B L A N K E T  S C A R V E S }

ok so as i continue writing this, i am starting to think these are all pretty obvious choices for fall -- but hey i can't help it if this are great classic pieces that keep coming back season after season. also the last few months i have been trying to go back to my roots haha and by that i mean keep things simple and basic but not so basic if you know what i mean -- i'm not gonna lie i love trendy pieces but i'm starting to get sick of chasing trends so im trying to just keep it simple and neutral (for the most part) and just share the things i absolutely love, even if it means i might be a little repetetive. but hey you can mix simple easy pieces with a lot of different options making every outfit slightly different -- so yes blanket scarves were a must-have for me last year but i still love them -- there are always new colors and patterns out there and i love wearing a white tee and skinny jeans with flats, so throw on a huge plaid blanket scarf or one with stripes and bam your basic look is not so basic, ya feel me? haha check out some of my picks this season below! 


{ L E A T H E R  J A C K E T S }

do i even need to explain?! i mean, right?!?! leather jackets will NEVER go out of style -- as long as you pick classic styles and fit -- like the moto jacket. I mean this style has been around for forever and i am not mad about it one bit -- i probably have like six or seven leather moto-style jackets, why because they are so damn good! haha. there are different kinds of leather and they can have slightly different fit, either way they are super cool and perfect for your fall wardrobe. but of course there are other fabulous leather jacket styles you can rock all fall and winter long! i love to wear it leather jackets with literally ANYTHING -- sweats, joggers, leggings, skirts, dresses, shorts, pajamas... haha ANYTHING! you just can't go wrong.. outfit missing soemthing? throw a leather jacket over your shoulders, voila! your outifit is instantly perfect! oh, and if you;re against leather, no worries boo, there are AMAZING faux leather jackets too! check out some amazing options below! 


{ B O O T S / B O O T I E S }

this one is kinda like the leather jacket -- EVERY year we all wear boots, whether that's a bootie, over the knee, boots, tall boots or thigh high boots -- we will never stop wearing boots for fall and winter. they're cute, some can be edgy, and they keep our little toes warm when its cold out. i always say "i'm not buying boots this year" because i have a lot of boots, but every year there are always a few that are slightly different than what i have and i just can't say no. haha! i would love to hear from someone that actually hates wearing boots in the fall?? please tell me why! in the meantime, check out some amazing boots and booties to take you from now until winter! 



what are some of your fall must-haves?? anything you absolutely have to have every fall? would love to hear in the comments below!
