When peplums first became a huge trend, I fell in love with the style! But since then, my love for peplums has evolved into a serious obsession with soft peplums. It's not as severe of a cut and it just oozes girlyness(that's totally not a real word but I don't care). To me, nothing screams feminine more than a soft peplum blouse. This one has lace detailing and buttoned all the way up in the back- it keeps getting better and better, right?! I'm also a sucker for white blouses that you don't need to wear a shirt on underneath. Sheer blouses are great, but I hate having to worry about an undershirt!

Another reason I love soft peplums- they go with ANYTHING! That's right, anything. Pair it with a sleek pencil skirt for work, high-waisted jeans and a floppy hat, or some distressed denim shorts. The possibilities are endless! This blouse was scored in The Cube section at Marshalls for only $14.99. The Cube is the juniors section, but don't think Juniors like shopping at Mervyns with your mom before a dance. It's more like having two sections to shop at in Marshalls- Womens' and Juniors'. Boom! Sorry boys ;) I always make my way to The Cube to find rompers, kimonos, trendy blouses, and their killer clearance rack. But don't think because the prices are lower the quality is lower. Nope. Same high-quality pieces! Next trip to TJMaxx or Marshalls you have to check out that section. I promise you will thank me later!


 I'm working on a haul, so be on the lookout for one coming to my YouTube channel!

My style has totally evolved and changed overtime, especially after becoming a mom. I usually lean towards more free-flowing layers, comfortable jeans, and the occasional hat to cover up my bed head. I still love getting dressed up fancy- some days I can get away with it, but other days I don't. I'm always reaching for boho inspired pieces that I can wear for my blog and also while playing at the park with Uriah. Usually I layer over simple t-shirts, but occasionally I find a gem like this blouse and it takes my outfit to a whole new level! This blouse is as comfortable as a t-shirt, but is still dressy. I had this blouse sitting for a while and didn't know what to pair it with, but now that I see it with simple layers- I can't get enough! Try pairing a silk cami or a loose blouse with a chunky knit sweater, you may never want to go back!

These next few days are going to be filled with Nick and I (and Uriah) giving #ourlittletrailer some love and a much needed facelift. You can follow our journey on Instagram and I'll post some updates soon. We're having so much fun and can't wait for our first trip!

Thank you for reading and your continued support!

This past week was so rejuvenating. Nick and I celebrated our 5 years with a night away in the city, while Uriah hung out with his grandparents. I was so thankful for the few days we got to just relax and enjoy each others company. We were able to go to some hiking spots I had been talking about, eat our weight in carbs and delicious truffle fries, and go for a morning run in the rain. I love being a mom more than anything, but it's nice to also be a wife and enjoy special time with Nick. 

Alright, enough mushy-ness..let's talk about this outfit! I swore off wearing sweatshirts years ago. I thought, "I'm past that phase in my life" - no more sweatshirts! Ok, I didn't know or even think about the possibility of beaded sweatshirts when I went through that phase, so when I saw this lovely one at Marshalls, I forgot all about my little sweatshirt fasting and quickly bought it. I'm not sure if anyone else swore off sweatshirts like myself and if you did, after seeing this one you may become a believer again! It is a shorter length, so I paired it with a chambray top (also from Marshalls) that had a subtle print to it. One of my favorite things to wear lately is a longer, loose blouse, preferably one that covers my bum, underneath a fitted top or sweater. It looks so put-together and adds a little extra to the outfit while giving it a playful look. And I can't get enough of the tuxedo cut on the back of the chambray! Love those little details. Cloth & Stone does chambray SO well and I seriously can't get enough of their clothes. I love that I can go to Marshalls and pick up such affordable, in-season pieces and see them being sold at Anthropologie a week later for triple the price. Who doesn't love getting a deal like that?! So keep your eyes peeled for Cloth & Stone blouses- you will be thanking me when you're wearing the softest denim blouse EVER. Speaking of deals, the Plato's Closet near me had a killer sale Saturday, so get ready for a little haul video coming to my YouTube channel.
