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!

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.

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™‚ .

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™‚ .

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?

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.

(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™‚ .

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.

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!

Forget about it

OMG this lightweight jacket is adorable and so fun for the summer. It is the perfect 3rd piece for almost any outfit. It may look kind of fancy but really you could wear it with jeans (light or dark, with or without holes), shorts or a skirt like I did. AND it has pockets.. forget about it…

IMG_3680 IMG_3674 IMG_3685I think I need to invest in a selfie stick but OMG kind of embarrassing right? Although, no more embarrassing than taking pictures of yourself πŸ™‚ . Sorry, I will post later when I have a better picture.

I am in search of a knowledgable blogger friend who has been doing this for a while. I have some questions and I am looking for honest feedback. Let me know if you are interested πŸ™‚ .

Thanks for reading,

Mother’s Day

I have been waiting for the perfect occasion to debut this outfit. I didn’t want to waste this wild outfit on just anything. Mother’s Day felt fit. This Ro & De skirt is so fun. At first I was not sure what to wear with the stripes, but then I decided to just go for it and wear whatever. Remember, it’s all about taking fashion risks πŸ™‚ . From the Raga tassel shirt (a crop top, high waisted bottoms are a must or a blouse underneath πŸ™‚ ) and striped skirt to the leopard BP flats and Geo necklace, this outfit is totally mis-matched but I think that is what makes it so amazing. Oh and the Treasure & Bond jean jacket is always a good choice, it can be thrown on with some colored jeans or a dress.

The Lucky Shirt

To be honest, there is nothing lucky about this shirt but it seems like the perfect shirt to wear in vegas (you know with spades all over the shirt). Who knows, this shirt could be VERY lucky and I just don’t know it… anyway, I love the tie on this shirt (a total 2fer), well any shirt with a tie. I like to wear the spade shirt with black pants or a skirt. I chose to take a photo of the items alone without me to try something different. The pleather skirt is a lot of fun, the drawstring makes it a little more casual but it can still dressed up. Oh and there are pockets! The shoes are ones you have seen before, they are one of my favorites.

YES, PLEASE!

Holy crap, I just ran across this adorable dress and the perfect shoes to match. Please someone, gift these to me πŸ™‚ . Let’s start with this dress. It is Madewell. I LOVE that the back is longer than the front, OH and the collar (you know I love anything with a collar). The dress is preppy and trendy at the same time. I would wear this to work, lunch with friends, a summer BBQ or anything during the day. Not sure i would wear this out on the town at night but It could go out with some fancy accessories. Next, the shoes(the brown flats NOT the Birkenstocks, yikes). OMG I love these, they are flat and comfy yet can easily be dressed up or down. The light brown color can go with pretty much anything. They have a pewter color that I really want too. To tie the outfit together, a long gold tier necklace would be perfect!
