Fall Floral

We were so lucky and had another baby shower this weekend! The girls got to meet their boyfriends who are identical twins, Josiah and Isaiah, the cutest little beans ever, and we got so many more cute things! We are so lucky to have so many loving people in our life.

As a mom, I love having opportunities to dress up because they don't come around very often. As I was getting ready, I couldn't help but throw on a dress! Especially because in Winnipeg, by November it's usually -20... and it was  5 degrees this weekend! I got this dress ages ago from Garage and absolutely love it for the falltime. It is perfect to transition florals from summer to fall and it is just the comfiest thing - and I could nurse in it! I paired it with some cozy socks and tights, and this cardigan from Old Navy. I was comfy all day long, and felt like I was put together so it was just such a win! 

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend! Take good care, lovelies! 

Mama's first night out!

Well, we did it! I was super anxious leading up to this day, but it ended up being such a fun night and I'm so so happy I got to have a little me time! It was my first night leaving the twinnies for a few hours to go do something fun since they were born. I went to go see my beautiful friend Heather in her wedding dress and then we all went bridesmaids dress shopping! It was so incredibly special to see her in her dress. She looked absolutely stunning and I just cannot wait for her big day. The dress is perfect and she will be the most gorgeous bride. We also found the bridesmaids dresses super easily, and it looks incredible on everyone! We purchased them right then and there. 

The twins were left with my wonderful mom and sister, so Kyle got the night off too. I kept texting him to see how much fun he was having with the house to himself and his response was, "I'm sad. I miss you girls." My heart. 

Coming home to the twins was so so special. Annie was in a complete deep sleep in my sisters arms, but as soon as she heard my voice her eyes were wide open. They are just so stinkin sweet and though they were super fussy for their babysitters, I know my mom and sister loved having them all to themselves for a few hours. 

On to the outfit - I felt like such a cool mom in this outfit, I'm not gonna lie! These shoes are to die for, and they're actually incredibly comfortable! And that's coming from a girl who lives in Birkenstocks, so you know how much I value comfort ;) The shoes totally made the outfit look more fancy than it felt! The leggings are from Victoria's Secret (and yes I know, "leggings aren't pants" but I just honestly have to disagree. I live in these things.) This shirt is perfect for my post partum body. I'm back at my pre-baby weight but have a light case of diastasis recti so my belly can tend to look a wee bit preggo still, so this cut is perfect for me for right now! And gosh I have no idea where or when I got this cardigan but it's always been a staple in my wardrobe and it's the perfect length to pair with pretty much everything! 

And this hair. This is my new go to mom hair. Because it looks like I styled it, right!? I braided my hair the night before in one big braid (to keep it out of my babies' grabby little hands) and then the next day just threw the top half of my hair into a tiny little mom bun and voila! Oh and dry shampoo. Lots of it. 

I had such a fun night and it just really reminded me how much I love getting ready and putting together outfits. I'm hoping to keep up doing little posts like these, so keep your eyes peeled!

Take good care, lovelies! 

THESE BOOTIES THOUGH

THESE BOOTIES THOUGH

I saw these booties at the mall the other day and decided that my measly student budget did not include the purchase of booties because hey, they're just not essential to my wellbeing. Or so I thought. Because for 3 days after I laid eyes on the beauty that these booties are, they were all I could think about. Yes I am overexagerating but I simply had never felt this way about shoes before!!!!
