Hoops are back, and better than ever


Morning, and happy Halloween! I’ve teamed up with local jewelry designer Astor + Orion and to show off a beautiful piece of her collection…these modern dreamcatcher hoops. The fact that they’re made of recycled metal is a bonus! (Yay sustainable fashion!)

It’s the details like this that make me love fashion and blogging even more. Feeling a good connection with a brand is HUGE for me, and I only work with people I truly feel good about…and products I truly adore. Teaming up with other moms makes me happy as well, so there’s that.

I’ve added a link and discount for you all!! Happy shopping!! XOXO

3 puffers from Aritzia I'm loving


Now that I’m living back in the PNW, good coats are on the top of my mind. Aritzia has a TON of warm and fun puffers and I’ve linked my 3 favorites…the black for the classics out there, the silver for the bold, and the yellow for those who prefer a pop of color. Gotta stay warm out there this winter, and though these are a bit of a splurge, they’re classic and will last for YEARS! Stay warm out there friends!

There is just something about being in the city on a sunny, crisp fall day. The smells of autumn, the crisp leaves crunching under your feet. A hot cup of cider or pumpkin muffin. I absolutely love Seattle in the fall. Oh how I’ve missed the season as living in the south, you didn’t get much of a true fall experience. I feel like this last look we shot at Pike Place Market encompasses “Anna” on most days. A monochrome look, slightly loose fitting, comfortable, and with an ankle bootie. The perfect simple, chic fall outfit as it really makes the fall colors in the backdrop pop. Enjoy the season, friends, as it always passes too quickly…the good news is winter in the city can be just as magical. I admit I am eager to whip out the holiday home decor as this will be our first Thanksgiving and Christmas season back in Seattle and in the new house!
