Are you a jacket person? I have always been a cardigan person, but not necessarily a jacket person. But I am realizing jackets just take an outfit up a notch!

We're heading to Las Vegas for a long weekend and I was looking up some ideas on Pinterest for what to wear with a sequin top. I found this one on Amazon and thought it was cute. One of the ideas was with a moto jacket and some nude pumps, so I tried to put together a similar look. I really like how it turned out and I think I will be wearing this as an outfit on our trip!



Necklace: Kendra Scott
Blazer: c/o Shein
Top: Target
Pants: Old Navy
Loafers: Walmart

Blush is a fun spin on a blazer, and when I was looking at pants to go with it, I pulled for these from Old Navy because they have some pink in the leopard print. Looking at this outfit later, it kind of has some Saved By The Bell 90s vibes to it, don't you think?

I'd seen some people posting about their love for the J. Crew Sweater Blazer, so when I found this one on sale, I snagged it thinking it would be fun. I really works with the greens in this jumpsuit and I got a ton of compliments when I wore this to school!


Necklace: Kendra Scott
Jacket: c/o Shein
Top: Target
Pants: H&M (similar)
Heels: Target (similar)
Clutch: Thirty-One (similar)

One of my favorite fashion tricks is putting together a faux jumpsuit look with a black top and bottoms. I thought this was perfect to wear with this fancy jacket I may end up taking to Vegas, too! I added these gold heels I got on sale at Target a few years ago and a gold glitter clutch and I think it all comes together!

Are you a jacket person? What's your favorite kind of jacket?

Last Friday was Valentine's Day! Our church youth group offered babysitting, so we took advantage of it and went out. We ended up at the mall food court because every place was crazy, but we still had fun. Russ and I actually met on Valentine's Day (read the story here), so it is a special day for us.

I was featured this week over on The Beachwaver's blog! Hop here if you want to read it!

Hey all! Today I wanted to show you some fun Valentine's inspired looks with tops gifted from Shein! All of these outfits are worn with the same pair of jeans to make it easy and just to show you how you can change it up a little bit.

This post contains affiliate links and gifted items but all opinions are my own.


Top: c/o Shein
Jeans: Democracy
Shoes: Gap (old and I can't find any comparable!)

I have seen the distressed sweater trend, and I thought I needed to give it a try. I love the different look and how this sweater could be casual with sneakers (like in this outfit) or dressed up!


Sweater: c/o Shein
Jeans: Democracy
Boots: Target

This outfit is a little between casual and dressy. On the model, this sweater was pulled down off the shoulder but that's not quite my style. I think this would be great for a date night or night out with friends.


Top: c/o Shein
Jeans: Democracy
Boots: Jeffrey Campbell (similar)

This is an outfit that is perfect for a date night. The top is romantic with the lace detail and I love it! I added a heeled boot and done!

Do you go out with a significant other, stay in, or celebrate with friends on Valentine's Day?

I mentioned last week that it was Henry's birthday! He had some buddies over to hang out and a couple spent the night. He made out big with Roblox gift cards and he was thrilled!


Another month has passed, so that means it's time to share my recent Amazon purchases!

Today is Henry's 10th birthday! I always put streamers on the boys' rooms the night before their birthdays, so it is something fun to wake up to. He opened some gifts this morning and he has some buddies coming over tonight!

Hey all! I hope your week is going well! Today I wanted to share some of my recent outfits with you and show you were you can shop them more regularly and easily!

I found a website that has clothes Wesley loves! It's called Primary and they have lots of gender neutral bright colored clothes for great prices!

I'm a little late to the game this month, but it is fun to share what we've been purchasing from Amazon. I love reading these types of posts and I hope you do too!

1. I picked up some of these hair clips to use as gifts for customers and they are so cute! I kept a the lips ones for myself!

2. I also got these foundation brushes for gifts for customers, too. They are very comparable with some that I have that cost a LOT more.

3. I saw this dress in a Facebook group and I fell in LOVE! I ordered it in a medium and large because I wasn't sure on size and ended up keeping the large. It is SO cute and affordable.

4. I have seen some students and friends wear these warm, cozy jackets, and I wanted one, but the name brand one some of them had was close to $100. I found this one on Amazon for under $30 and I LOVE it!

5. This pop bead jewelry kit was on sale for $15 one day, so I ordered it. I think it will be fun to pull out on a cold winter day!

6. Henry went to a birthday party, and Nerf guns are an easy gift to get for boys his age, so we got this one.


7. Calvin didn't have much on his Christmas list, but one thing he REALLY wanted was a magic wand! I found this one on that makes noise and he loved it.

8. One day Amazon had a sale on markers and pencils. I picked up these dry erase markers for school along with some Mr. Sketch Markers and mechanical pencils.

9. I ordered a PINK Christmas tree right after Christmas. Our current tree is pre-lit and has had some lights stop working. I have always dreamed of having a "pretty" tree, so this one will go upstairs next year and then we will move the current tree downstairs. I also bought some rainbow ornaments to decorate like this Pinterest idea!

I'm excited to link up regularly with this monthly link up, Prime Purchases! What fun things have you bought on Amazon lately?
Happy Sunday! We've been hit with some dreary weather here (and I took these photos before it hit), and during dreary winter, your outfits don't have to be dreary!

Henry had his first basketball game of the season. He got to shoot a free throw, though he didn't make it, he did make two three point shots in the game!

The first evening starting off break, I headed off to dinner and to see Tonic Sol Fa (a local A Capella group) with some of the Des Moines Moms Blog crew. It was so fun!
