Today, I’m featuring some great black owned businesses on the blog. I recently found this Little Black Dress LBD from Cushnie at Target. Under $30 (on sale), and super flattering. It has a ruffle shoulder, uneven hem, and gathered waist. I recruited Atalie to match in Cushnie. What do you think? I also had plans to shoot these dresses on the camera but it stopped working after it fell from the tripod, real life! I resonate with people like Carly Cushnie, founder of Cushnie. who believes that timeless silhouettes can make you feel confident. That confidence is needed to stand up to what each day holds. I tell my girls, ‘they are strong, they are God’s workmanship, and they can do all things though Christ who gives them strength, ” that is my encouragement to you reader. (Phil 4:13) Please see below for some black owned businesses to support.
Cushnie for Target – owned by Carly Cushnie who believes that with her timeless silhouettes, the modern woman can feel sexy, sophisticated and powerful all at once.
Briogeo I first noticed Briogeo on Something Navy. I love her hair and you already know I like clean beauty. Clean hair care for all hair types. They have clean scalp therapy for itchy scalps.

I get asked SO many times what to wear to a wedding and what is appropriate. I found some really cute choices below! I love a good print like this dress with a neutral heel and blush bag
I was doing some thinking recently and thought it would be fun to start recapping with you guys the top links I shared with you all the week before. What do you think? So, everything included on the list below was the most-purchased by you guys last week out of everything I shared. Kinda fun, right? It’s honestly really great for me to look through this stuff to see what you guys are loving the most! I hope you enjoy this new little series!
1.$68 slip dress – This dress is a steal and works great for any summer weddings you have coming up!
Bias slip dress – Another fantastic slip dress option. This one has a bit more of a defined waist, which is what makes it stand out, in my opinion.
2. Camisole – This camisole is a staple in my wardrobe in both black and white. Very happy to see you guys are loving it too!
3. Turkish runner rug – I get tons of questions from you guys about the rugs at our cabin and our home in LA. This one is the perfect color combo in my opinion, so I totally get why you guys are loving it so much. 😉
4. Cropped sweater – Such a cute little boho style sweater. And it’s on sale right now for 30% off, so snag it while you can!
5. Turquoise rings – I love a good turquoise ring and it’s good to know you guys do too! This option is great because you know you’re getting real, high-quality jewelry. Plus, how stunning are these rings?!
6. Red bow sandals – These sandals are so incredibly cute and scream spring and summer! The knotted detail on the front is what had me crushing on them. Not to mention the block heel makes them way more comfortable than a stiletto, which is a big win for this mama.
Anthropologie is having their 20% off everything sale, so I’m making a rare weekend appearance here on the blog to tell you. Anthropologie has been a long time favorite of mine from unique shoes, to throws for the cabin, gorgeous couches, and perennial favorite dresses. Did you know, one of me and Reid’s first dates was at his roommate’s wedding? I was wearing a black Anthropologie dress and so beautiful. Amazing how a good dress can put you in a good mood. Ironically, I caught the bouquet that summer night and we were married the following spring. So, is Anthropologie a perennial favorite of mine for around 20 years? Absolutely. Scroll down for some of my hand picked favorites for 20% off today. Which are your favorites?

If you have a round face, rectangle, square lenses work the best. If you have a square shape face, aviators, butterflies or round sunnies are most flattering. As for oval, any shape works!
Spring is on the way, I can feel it! That might sound silly coming from someone who lives in Southern California, but I think spring is so much more than just the temperature. There’s a freshness in the air and all the new fashion trends start to show up! On a recent trip to Nordstrom, I definitely saw lots of fun new things for the season including this amazing black slip dress.
This dress is my perfect outfit in so many ways. First, it’s comfortable, which means I can chase all five kids around in it. Second, it can be dressed up or down. You can wear with sneakers or a strappy heel or sandal. Best of both worlds if you ask me.
And when it comes to shopping at Nordstrom, you all know it’s pretty much my favorite place no matter what I’m looking for. I can find stuff for the kids, me and Reid. Win-win! Plus their convenient order online and pick up in-store method is perfect for busy moms. Make sure to head in to check out all their amazing offerings for spring soon!
What are you shopping for this spring?

I’m loving the ever versatile SLIP DRESS. It’s the answer to what to wear to a wedding, date night, concert, baby shower, birthday bash or you fill in the blank. I LOVE the fit. Here I’m wearing a small. It is a snug fit, flattering v-neck, and long flowy 100% silk material. After all, the dress is inspired by the Bar Silk Shirt. Did I mention it was super comfortable? Levi left his mark towards the end of the day and spit up on it. I wiped it clean and will take it to the dry cleaners on Monday. I should have it by humpday, just in time for the weekend to style it with a knotted graphic tee and sneakers. Because it’s all about versatility.

What are some of your favorite ways to wear a slip dress?
I’ve been searching for what to wear to an evening out. Post baby 4mos and I cannot deny I feel and look a little different than I did a year ago. That said, I found this beautiful flowey jumpsuit (that looks like a dress) evening attire. I LOVE it and got lots of compliments wearing it. If you have an evening wedding to attend, cocktail hour, charity or just a BBQ date night, I recommend going the jumpsuit route.
Since the jumpsuit is from Shopbop and they’re having their annual sale, I included some faves below. I’ve been shopping the Shopbop sale in between making kids lunches and vacuuming up Legos. Oops. Lot’s of birthdays happening in the upcoming two weeks, so I’ll make it brief. I’ve been crushing on all things olive, jumpsuits with insanely large wide legs, anything belted, and exaggerated sleeves, particularly the balloon sleeve. I found a couple of those things and more on the Shopbop site. I included many of them below, so check it out and let me know what you think. Bonus, if you have any idea how to organize these Lego’s!
An all white dress is the ultimate Spring essential. It compliments a tan, and looks great with lace up sandals. While we’re sad to leave Unico Resort in Mexico, we cannot wait to see our kids! There was so much to see and do it was almost overwhelming to capture. Stay tuned for more on the resort! See more white looks here and here.
