Crown Braids and Embroidery

October 16, 2017













 Top: c/o Sheinside (only $21) // Jeans: c/o Ingrid & Isabel // Watch: c/o Daniel Wellington // Shoes: Target (old, similar here) // Bag: c/o 88 Handbags


It's a rarity to see me in denim.  I'm not comfortable in them, especially during this pregnancy and Phoenix's 93 degree fall weather.  But I hit the jackpot with these comfy jeans from Ingrid & Isabel.  I highly recommend them for fellow preggos out there.  I went outside my comfort zone with this off shoulder embroidered top.  I usually like a more simple style but all the elements of this top came together nicely.  The pop of red in the embroidery gives the top some flare and the ruffled sleeve a pièce de ré·sis·tance.  


I wanted to give you guys something different with my hairstyle and a crown braid fit the bill.  It was quite an easy hairdo thanks to my fave hairstyle youtuber, Kayley Melissa.  I follow her tutorials step by step and they manage to come out ok.  Have you tried a youtube hair tutorial before?  


Hubby and I did a recent staycay at the Graduate Hotel in Tempe.  Stay tuned for a full review coming soon to the blog! We are trying to have some fun before baby Zoe comes, 6 more weeks y'all!!
