bybmg: March 2017

Some days, it's easy to just to back to the basics. A chambray top is definitely a staple piece in my wardrobe because there are unlimited ways to wear it!

I got the crafting itch again. This time it was for something to pep up my table. I went to my felt stash, saw orange and green, and knew it could make an adorable carrot! It's so easy you can do it too! I whipped them all up in less than 30 minutes!
Happy Friday! I hope your week was great! Here are the highlights of our week. Don't forget to enter the giveaway for some awesome prizes I wish I could win!

We ended spring break with a fun St. Patrick's Day. We had friends over to play, ate Lucky Charms + M&Ms + Rolos, and had festive floats to end the day! It was great!


The boys don't have a ton of green shirts, but coincidentally, they all have green hoodies, so I snapped a quick picture of them on St. Paddy's Day on our way to the Y.


The rest of the week at our house was basically overtaken by the plague. First Calvin and Henry were sick, then Russ was sick, then I wasn't feeling very well. Russ and I were supposed to go to a concert tonight, but we honestly decided we were just too worn out to do so. So, instead we sold the tickets and we're just going out for dinner and relaxing. Much needed after this week.


So, remember that No Shop March I was talking about? Well, the Kate Spade Surprise Sale made me break down. I found this beauty for a great price. I LOVE the fold over style. I LOVE the polka dots. I LOVE that it's a cross body, so I bought it. BUT I did list a few things on Poshmark to make up for it, so it should more than even out. I made it to March 22. Not too shabby.


Speaking of shopping, Cents of Style has this adorable tunic on sale today for their Fashion Friday. It's called the Hannah Keyhole Tunic and I just love it. It has adorable keyholes in the front and the back. I appreciate that they are still modest so I felt comfortable wearing this to school. This tunic comes in so many great colors like this olive, but also navy, black, blush, gray, and more! It's awesome for pairing with skinny jeans and is a great seasonal transition piece with it's 3/4 sleeve! Hop over and shop here and use code TOPSTORY today through 3/26 to get yours for $19.95 plus free shipping! 

$10 at Target: Basics

Kate Spade, LipSense & Purple Peridot Giveaway

Floral LuLaRoe Leggings and Utility Jacket

I've been a LuLaRoe lover for almost three years now. My first LuLaRoe outfit hit the blog in April 2014. LuLaRoe has exploded in my closet and in women's closets across the US. I was tidying up my dresser this past weekend and counted 22 pairs of LuLaRoe leggings. 22! And when I searched my blog posts for LuLaRoe, 140 had some mention of it. Needless to say, LuLaRoe is a big part of my wardrobe!

Happy Tuesday! I have a fun giveaway for you today!

Welcome to this month's edition of $10 at Target! Each month I head to Target with a $10 budget and see what I can find. I actually declared March a no spend month, but I had to make an exception... $10 for this post was going to happen! 

First off, here are a few things I found but didn't buy:
We had a nice week of spring break! The weather didn't feel much like spring most of the week, but we made the best of it! Each week I round up five highlights of the week!


Henry has been learning so much at school, and he spotted Abraham Lincoln outside the mall, so we had to take a photo!

I'm so happy that this year St. Patrick's Day is over spring break, so we'll be home to celebrate and have some fun!  Today I wanted to round up just a couple ideas that are pretty simple so you could use them this week! Enjoy!

As I was thinking about outfit ideas for St. Patrick's Day, I was going through my closet and realizing I don't own a ton of true green. Most of the green I own is more olive. But, St. Patrick's Day also seems to have some touches of gold to it, so I though I would combine what I had and give you an idea if you're not one to have a lot of green in your closet either!
Happy Friday! I'm so excited because next week we're on spring break! We don't have any huge plans, just some fun things to mix it up a little bit. Here are highlights of this week!


Henry's school had a family night on Friday night. It was a little chaotic because there were a lot of people there, but we did hit up the photo booth, and I think the pictures totally capture our personalities!

I received product free in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own.

I've been in direct sales for a few years now. I've been with two different companies, and I think I've finally found my sweet spot with being a distributor for Senegence. Senegence is the company that makes LipSense. I've been with them for about eight months, and I'm learning new things every day. I feel like I've been somewhat successful, so today I wanted to share some tips that I think are helping me stand out!

This month, WhitneyMeganBeth and I decided to put a fun spin on our mom style and copy one another's looks from the past! 

Happy Monday! Today Nicole, Tif and I are teaming up to show off some of the great skirt styles that LuLaRoe Tracy Vazquez has to offer! I'm styling the Madison Skirt, which has been my favorite LuLaRoe skirt for a long while!

Happy Friday! It was my birthday on Monday and the celebration has pretty much touched every day of the week from happy mail to free coffee!

My birthday was Monday and I cashed in my free Starbucks birthday drink on Sunday. I always get a Venti when I'm getting a free drink! I got an iced caramel latte. Yum!

Happy Wednesday! It's the first Wednesday of the month, so Della, Nicole, Tif, and I are all taking our spin on a style! This month we're all sharing florals! Who doesn't love a good floral print?
