My Latest Business Adventure

Hello! So, you all know how much I LOVE clothes and accessories really are the finishing touch to ANY look – casual or fancy. I hear lots of women say, “but I wouldn’t know what to wear that with.” Here’s the thing, the only way to get comfortable with wearing accessories is by just going for it and trying new things out. Amazing outfits don’t always come out of the first look you put on, it takes throwing on pieces in your closet that might go together and finding great looks out of what you weren’t sure of. Well, sometimes the amazing outfits will come from the first look you put together but not always πŸ˜‰ I recently started as a Stylist for Stella & Dot. Have you heard of them? If you haven’t, you need to stop what you’re doing and follow this link now! http://www.stelladot.com/caitlyndavis I want to share some of my favorite pieces and different ways I have styled them.

First, the Rebel Pendant (comes in silver, gold and rose gold) is an easy piece to throw on with anything. Often, I will put on the Rebel over jean shorts and a white T-shirt. It just adds a cute element to what was a plain outfit. So easy for the moms out there looking for something quick.

Next, the Chiara. OMG, at first I was not crazy about this necklace, but after layering it over a denim shirt – forget about it. I am obsessed with this piece. It is so great for girls night, date night, work or just wearing it because it’s super cute.

The Freya Fringe, is probably my ultimate favorite piece. It can be worn several different ways but my favorite are short and long. This piece is so versatile. I took this to New York and basically wore it the entire time even though I brought several pieces with me. This may seem a little intimidating to some but TRUST me, this will really add some sparkle to your wardrobe and you won’t believe all the compliments you will receive.

There’s so many more amazing pieces from Stella & Dot! Check out their website and let me know what you think πŸ˜‰ http://www.stelladot.com/caitlyndavis

Boot Update

It has been a while since my last post. Sorry! I got the over the knee boots and decided to return them, they were beautiful but I think my legs are a little skinny for them (first world problems). They were too baggy by the end of the evening and I just couldn’t look past it. I literally lost sleep over the decision to keep or return the Seychelles boots. Yes, I am being serious πŸ™„. Β I still have the dream of owning a pair of boots like these and I am on the search for the perfect fit.

Here is the look I put together to debut the boots. They are definitely a going out boot and not an everyday boot, in my opinion.

My husband has really stepped up his fashion game πŸ™‚ .

This look was so fun to pick out! The black dress and drapey jacket are from the Juniors department in Nordstrom. The necklace is Stella and Dot. I have become obsessed with their jewelry. The quality is amazing and every piece is so special πŸ™‚ .

They are too baggy right? Or, am I just crazy?!

I will keep you updated on my boot hunt! With the change of season coming, I may wait until the next winter, unless these go on sale then I may consider them a half size down to see if that helps with the bagginess. I am a true 8.5 but got these in a 9 because that is all that was available. Unless I find something that fits better πŸ˜‰ .

On a different note, today is the one year anniversary of my blog! YAY! I can’t believe it has been a year. I created this blog when I was feeling blah and a little sad. I wanted to create something for me, outside of being a mommy, that I enjoyed and could be an outlet for my fashion obsession. OMGANDMORE has been such an amazing way for me to express myself and share my love for fashion πŸ™‚ . Thank you for reading!

Denim Blues

I really only have ONE pair of blue denim that I like. They are high rise, skinny and I got them on sale 😬 . Why is it so difficult finding the perfect pair/fit/color/rise of jeans? It was like discovering pizza for the first time when I found these. They are my first real “high rise” denim and yes, I wear them almost everyday…. That’s why I am now looking for another pair so I don’t ruin these in a matter of months. Here are the ones I love:

AG High Rise magic πŸ™‚

The next pair I get need to be high rise for sure and maybe a lighter denim with some holes? My husband would say, “holes? Really? That’s ridiculous!” But what does he know? πŸ˜‚ I have been considering adventuring to GAP for some nicely priced denim. When I have tried GAP in the past, the denim have stretched too much or they just weren’t comfortable but I am optimistic that I can find a great fitting pair! (I am really trying to not be a jean snob right now) Here is a pair I was checking out online, they are mid-rise and would definitely need to be tried on. I love that they are a totally different look with the loose fit and worn denim. GAP always has a sale online which makes shopping feel a little more guilt free πŸ˜‰

image
These are mid rise, not sure if that is high enough for me. These are GAP.

I am OBSESSED with the next pair of jeans! They just look amazing, too bad they are sold out of all sizes but one. Of course they are on sale too. Maybe they will be in your size?

_11228395
These AG jeans are mid rise as well. The AGs are on the pricey side but the quality is amazing and so comfy.

Lastly, when in doubt just get the jeans you love in another color. RIGHT?

_11764993
These AG jeans are just a tad different then the first ones posted. If you like these, add them to your wish list and wait for them to go on sale.

Thanks for reading. Email me if you need any advice on finding the right jeans for you πŸ™‚ . You can also follow me on Instagram @OMGANDMORE

BLACK FRIDAY

Oh the sales! For my family, it is a tradition to fight the crowds on Black Friday. I am sure lots of people think we are crazy. Thursday night, my sisters and I went to Target and Kohls. I came straight from Thanksgiving dinner so I was dressed a little fancy for shopping.

I look exhausted in this picture. It was only about 8… Look, I am trying to work on being more photogenic. These things take time! πŸ™‚

These are my first true high-rise jeans and I don’t think I will every buy a different rise now. Yes, they go up to my belly button and no it doesn’t bother me. I felt weird for about a day wearing them but I am in love now. If you haven’t tried a high-rise, you need to. They just fit so amazing and make me feel more confident with my body. The ASTR deep v-neck shirt was an item I picked up on sale right before the Black Friday sale at Nordstrom (Of course it is no longer available, sorry! On Black Friday it was marked down an extra 20%) along with the adorable booties. OMG these booties. I am in love, they are the perfect color (they also come in several other amazing colors) and I am crazy for the laced-up style. The outfit is a little random but I think it came together nicely. The flannel under the dressy shirt was something fun I wanted to try. I like the idea of mixing fancy with causal, it makes things interesting. Fashion is about taking risks right?

P.S. I like to add items to my Wishlist on Nordstrom.com and then wait till they go on sale to purchase πŸ™‚ You would be surprised by how many things go on sale at Nordstrom.

 

Virginia

Richmond, Virginia was the last leg of our trip. Our wonderful friends, Mike and Mona, hosted us at their super cool loft (thanks again, friends πŸ™‚ ). Our first thought once in Virginia was, “OMG it’s humid!” Β It went from no rain to downpour in the matter of minutes. Once the rain stopped, we were still wet from the humidity. Minus the humidity, we had a great time with awesome friends!

We arrived around lunch time and once settled in, we set out for lunch and shopping (best day ever). Check out the AMAZING faux fur vests I picked up πŸ™‚ Β because everyone needs 2 right. Β They serve different purposes… The pleather pants are just fun. Although, I wore them the other night and they were not quite as comfortable as I thought they would be (I could barely keep them up over my butt and it was a little hard to sit, TMI?) but they are still super cute and fun. The things girls do to look cute…

Notice the crazy cool necklace? I got the vest and pleather pants from a place called Traveling Chic BoutiqueΒ (check out the page, it’s a real cool place). The girls working were hilarious, they kept talking to a mannequin that they were trying to dress and saying all kinds of funny mean comments about the body, I peaked my head from the dressing room and said, ” you’re not talking about me right?” We all starting laughing, maybe you had to be there? The vest and necklace on the right are from Fab’rik. Β Ryan thinks the necklace is awful, but I LOVE it! I say, the uglier the better πŸ™‚ . It’s actually really cool. The people working at Fab’rik said while in Richmond, we needed to eat as much as possible because the food is amazing. So we did.

We had to try some southern BBQ. We ate at Buzz and Ned’s. I loved my wings, Ryan thought his ribs could have been better.

IMG_5311

Um, in Richmond, they have a 24 hour fresh cookie delivery service, AMAZING!

We ended our trip with a super fun and cute boat ride. We were the only 4 people on the boat so the driver spent a little extra time letting us look for turtles, if you know me, you know how I feel about turtles πŸ™‚ .

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed reading about our trip,

Highlights from our trip:

Big Bus tour in NYC, Book of Mormon, visiting with friends and of course shopping! Oh and of course coming home to our sweet girls πŸ™‚ .

DAY 5

DAY 5

Our second day in DC was a lot of fun. One of my good friends moved to DC a few years ago and we were able to meet up with her and her husband for lunch AND dinner πŸ™‚ .We started the day with an awesome lunch at a local spot then toured the American History Museum and the Air and Space Museum (which was amazing!).

IMG_5294

The day felt like a hat day to me. No, I don’t care about the NY team but I do care about how adorable the hat is. #sorrynotsorry I was all about comfort. The picture above is of my good friend Monica and I πŸ™‚ .

IMG_5296

(I am wearing a v-neck from Nordstrom Rack that I got for $10, Hudson jean shorts, NY hat from a city tourist store and UGG shoes πŸ™‚ )

After the museums, I was beat (let’s be honest, I spent more time in the gift shops than in the museums). We had a fun dinner in Georgetown which was super cute and I wish we could have spent more time in the town. I was really hoping to do some shopping but the stores were closing early and I felt guilty dragging our friends around (maybe not that guilty πŸ™‚ ). After dinner, we set out to Richmond. We found a random, cheap hotel on Groupon for the night because our friends in Richmond were getting back late that night from Europe and we didn’t want them to have to entertain us. The hotel was, um… a little sketchy…. but it worked out fine. Although, Ryan forgot a bag of alcohol and wine for our friends! So lame!

Saw this gem in a local liquor store and I couldn’t resist taking a picture!

Only 2 more days left on our trip to share!

DC

DAY 4

Sunday morning we slept in, said goodbye to our friends and left for DC. We had a rental car specifically for this drive. We had hoped to stop in Philly but due to the Pope’s visit we were not able to (not bitter or anything). Once in DC, we checked in and headed to the downtown area to take the night bus tour. Ryan insisted that I take a pic in front of the FBI building (HI!).

(My feet were done at this point and my Nike’s were oh so comfy πŸ™‚ )

(Dinner before the night tour)

In NYC, the adrenaline of the city was amazing and I wanted to look my best everyday. As soon as we got to DC, it just wasn’t the same vibe (for me at least, sorry DC) and I seemed to hit my “wall” of exhaustion. The DC night tour was awesome but lasted a hour longer than supposed to so we didn’t get back to the hotel until about midnight. We then hit the bar for some drinks πŸ™‚

EAST COAST DAY 2

DAY 2 of 6!

We all woke up well rested and excited for our second day in the city. It was about an hour train ride into the city from our friends house, where we were staying. Here’s a pic of Sandra and I at Madison’s adorable train station. Of course with our morning coffees πŸ™‚ .

IMG_5224

First stop, Grand Central Station. WOW! The station is beautiful! We took lots of pictures but nothing seemed to turn out awesome.. must have been the cameras fault right? Anyway, here is the only decent full body shot of my outfit for the day. I am crazy for this suede skirt because it goes with so much! I like to wear it with a longer shirt over or a tucked flannel. The shirt is so comfy and can be dressed up (sort of) or dressed down with jeans so easy. It comes with those hanging straps on the inside (which drive me nuts) and I plan to snip those out ASAP! The booties were a cute choice with this outfit but not a cute choice for walking around New York City. My feet were okay but they would have been a lot better in some Nike’s. But we were in the city, I had to dress up right?

0925151211

After touring the station for a little while, we tried out Dunkin’ Donuts. EVERYBODY says, “you must try Dunkin’ Donuts.” Look, this might offend some people but WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL? I think the coffee was alright nothing special (#sorrynotsorry). After drinking our mediocre coffee, we took a taxi to the Rockefeller building.

IMG_5235

(Here’s Ryan calling for a taxi. OMG, he isΒ we are such dorks)

While waiting for our “appointment” time to take the elevator ride up to the top of Rockefeller, I did some shopping at TOPSHOP πŸ™‚ .

Here is what I got:

IMG_5345

The yellow flannel has been on my radar for a while so I knew this was going to be a purchase. The lace-up flats have been all over Instagram lately and I have been drooling! I am so happy to now have a pair! I was between the these and the same ones but with tassels. Sandra and I decided the tassels were too intense. The NY (not from TOPSHOP) hat is just cute (sorry NY, I am only concerned about the cuteness factor. At least I am honest?).

The elevator ride up to the top of Rockefeller was 90 seconds of torture. I get motion sickness and they had a crazy strobe light show on the ceiling while we rode up (I was so happy when it stopped!). The views were amazing but I was happy to be back on the ground floor πŸ™‚ .

SDC12038

We ate a late breakfast so we skipped lunch, terrible decision (some of us may have been hangry (hungry+angry=hangry), or maybe that was just me?). We went and wandered through the MET. AMAZING is all I can say. You could spend an entire day just looking at things in the MET. We left after a couple hours in need of dinner.

SDC12046

(I should be embarrassed by this but for some reason I am not)

SDC12051

Reichenbach Hall is where we ended up for dinner. It was a great atmoshphere with delicious chicken wings πŸ™‚ . The beer was pretty good too! After dinner, we checked out the Barcade (video game bar). The dudes had a great time, Sandra and I were exhausted.

Lastly, on our way back to the train station, I saw a Psychic sign. YES! This is not really for everyone but I think it is fun to see what they will say. The woman read my palm for a few seconds (while her dog barked and her kids yelled in the other room) then had some serious predictions. She said: If I am not careful, I will be pregnant with a boy in 7 months (um, no thanks! This mama is done πŸ™‚ ), I will be signing important papers in the next few months, we will be buying a different house in 2 years and I may be changing jobs. She also answered a few random questions of mine. It was a lot of fun, I may or may not have been intoxicated while my reading but I had a blast.

I hope you enjoyed reading about our day 2 in NYC, there are 4 more days to come!

YIKES

YIKES! It has been too long since my last post. SORRY! I have been a little discouraged lately but I am getting back in the “blog” game. BRING IT!

Um, we leave for NYC in one week from tomorrow. Can you believe it? I am so excited and nervous! There is so much to see and do it’s overwhelming. We will be in New Jersey, DC and Virginia at different times during our trip but New York City is all I can think about. The fashion, the sites, the coffee shops, the restaurants.. OMG My husband wants to see historical things the entire trip but I really want to embrace the city and of course go shopping! Looks like there will need to be some compromising, on his end of course πŸ˜‰ .

I feel like I have been planning and preparing for this trip since we booked it MONTHS ago. When I say planning, I really mean our itinerary my outfits. This is NYC, my outfits need to be perfect and on point EVERYDAY! We will be doing so much walking that shoes are important to think about. Comfy Nikes are the obvious choice when walking around Disneyland but this is NYC, I am not wearing running shoes. These UGG sneakers were a great find. They will be perfect and are weather resistant. They will go with several of my outfits I have already thought out in my head. The UGGs are a good compromise from running shoes.

_10922466

Β Then outfits, It is going to be in the mid-seventies while we are there. Do I wear jeans with a t-shirt or shorts because I will probably be sweating from all the walking? I know, #firstworldproblems.

I have my first outfit planned for our travel day and first day in the city. I will be posting that soon πŸ™‚ .

Thanks for reading,

BOOTIESLICIOUS (THAT’S A WORD RIGHT?)

Oh September, you sure snuck up on me! Although, it is still smoking hot outside and I cannot even think about wearing jeans or socks with shoes (I am sweating thinking about it), I have been peeping out some AMAZEBALL booties for the Fall.

At the beginning of summer, my Husband got some Chukkas and they are adorable, in a cool-dude kind of way. I never thought about myself in a pair of booties like these but when in Rome. I am kind of crazy for these blue ones. They are different from anything I have own and I think that is why I like them so much. Who wears blue shoes? This girl! They come in several other colors too, the bordeaux is a great option too πŸ™‚ .

_10962197

Bussola ‘Salem’ Chukka bootie – I just love! They would be adorable with skinny jeans, or boyfriend jeans rolled at the bottom.
_10859055

These Nine West ‘Just This’ ankle bootie is so cute and fun! They really “edge” things up! I like that they are not over the top moto.

_9816585

These booties areΒ Franco Sarto and would be adorable with jeans, skinny or not, also great with tights and skirts/dresses πŸ™‚ . They can really be dressed up too, which is nice for a work to night out option.

_11120983

These Franco Sarto booties are so different and I would love to see them on with tights, a skirt and sweater. Oh, I can’t wait for cold weather πŸ™‚ .

I am slightly obsessed with Franco Sarto and Vince Camuto shoes right now πŸ˜‰ . All these booties run between $100-$150. They are great shoes that will last through more than one season πŸ™‚ .
