It’s that time of year when I’m scoping out everything spring. I was pleasantly surprised recently to find so many good things at Walmart.com! Have you checked out their selection? There are tons of fun pieces that are super affordable, which makes it really easy to try out new trends this season. I picked up quite a few pieces and wanted to share them to give you a little peek at what’s happening over on Walmart’s website.

More wide leg pant options:

My pants, stripe tee, trench coat, and sandals are all from Walmart! Loving the pants a lot because they’re a wide leg, which I wear all the time and love. The stripe tee is a good staple that I know I’m going to get so much wear out of. As for the trench, who doesn’t love a good trench coat? They’re classic and perfect for layering up during the spring. I currently have a few of them hanging in my closet, but if you need something affordable and basic, this option from Walmart.com is definitely the one to start out with.
What are you guys shopping for this spring? Are you looking for basics or trends? Whatever it is, if you want to keep it at an affordable price point, I highly recommend checking out Walmart’s online selection – there’s a lot of really good things happening!

Thank you Walmart for sponsoring this post!

When I was packing for 2 weeks in Omaha and Chicago this Christmas, I was struck by what pieces I continue to use over and over again. From a trusty camel coat and Gucci belt to flattering black jeans, you don’t need thousands of items to look chic, but really only a couple. I’ve traveled a lot, styled thousands of outfits and have scoured the internet for the practical yet chic pieces. I also am a firm believer in “investment buys” such as Stuart Weitzman OTK boots. Are they pricy, yeah! Will I wear them 25+ times this fall/Winter/Spring, YES. So the cost per wear is worth it. And you know what, I only used a couple like over the knee boots and black jeans that seemed to go with everything. Don’t tell Reid I didn’t need such a big bag. See below some faves the in the below categories.

Jackets and Coats  

Jackets and coats are worth the investment. After all, they coverup a whole outfit. So invest wisely.

I learned in my 31 weeks into my fifth pregnancy, that in order to achieve that pregnancy chic you long to achieve, you need a couple comfy basics you can easily dress up. And dress up to the tune of a Gucci belt, stripe weekender and chic lil black and white trainers. Oh, and don’t forget the hat. I wear a TON of black and realized its really the most flattering at this point. Let’s face it, I really feel the weight of this extra 20 lbs, and feel all of my weight and width especially when I find myself stuck in between two car doors. Yikes! No wonder my back hurts! I recently tried on a light gray maxi dress and hubby even acknowledged I looked bigger in it. Complaints aside, I’m starting to think about buying more boy clothes, aka nesting, and excited to set up his room! Very exciting things to come. Don’t forget you can shop all my instagrams here on the blog – no app or sign ups required. What’s your go-to comfy basic?

Happy Wednesday!

Happy Saturday! Mom is here and we kicked off our weekend at the cutest diner. My mom loves mom and pop diners since as long as I can remember. Recently, I came across these cute taupe lace up heels online and they were on sale! I picked up this red bag as well and paired them with these comfy rips. I’ve gotten tons of questions on these shoes from instagram stories and your comments that I had to post them here as well. Hope you have a lovely weekend with your nearest and dearest!


My outfit:

poncho :: tank :: cutoff shorts and similar for $60

A tank is that understated must that works hard under those overalls, paired with the cutoffs, and everything in between. I brought over 6 tanks on our road trip this summer and was amazed how many outfits I got out of them. If you love to layer, pair a cozy cashmere cardigan with jeans or a leather jacket. Boom, its a 5 minute outfit, because as moms we all know that is all we have right? My advice is, stock up, they’re worth the small investment and see my top 5 favorites below.

Comment with your favorite!

Today I’m sharing some really simple summer staples to stock up now. I always love a white top (it looks great with jeans), a small bag, and nude sandals that never go out of style. Here’s I’m wearing flats which I’ll probably wear ever other day this summer. What are your faves?

I’m always on the lookout for great basics for less, and Express is killing it in the basics department. I’m not only a proud owner of this awesome stripe button up, but I also found some classic ripped jeans and gray frayed jeans as well. But I think the big find of the night was their jersey pant. Folks, write this down. They have the cozy feel of yoga pants but manage to look board meeting ready with flats or heels. I paired it with a simple black tank (it’s been hot here) and flats. I like that it’s a functional outfit that goes well with a blazer (for dressier occasions), or jean jacket for (the farmers market), or yes, just a tank for running errands in hot weather. Viola, ready in minutes and an outfit under $100.  Also follow me on Pinterest to see more favorites from Express.

It’s our last week of school before spring break and what a relief. While I love bonding with B while his siblings are at school, I’m super excited to let the kids ease into the morning and not have to make that 8am drive. We’re excited to welcome my in-laws, so be prepared for lots of date-nights and going-out-for-ice-cream kinda nights.  I love how versatile this top is – great over leggings or jeans, tied or tucked, dressy or casual. See here how I styled embroidered jeans. Happy Tuesday!

Patricia from Esemblē recently interviewed me. See the full interview on HERE and below, hope you enjoy. XO

1.     Please briefly introduce yourself.

I’m a wife, mother and creator of the fashion blog Shalicenoel.com

2.     What are the three essential items you’re currently carrying in your Kiosk Tote?

Stila in Beso, Baby wipes, and Kiehls lip butter – so moisturizing!

3.     ESEMBLĒ represents more than just a brand, it carries certain values, attitudes, and ways of living that makes the name unique and enchanting, just like our modern girl. What does it mean to you to be a ‘modern girl’?

Ball juggler, wearer of many hats. None of my friends have one job, they’re juggling multiple professions, as moms, small business owners, and volunteers. It’s an amazing job!

4.     ESEMBLĒ’s brand mantra is to celebrate the little joys in life. What little joys in life do you celebrate?

Enjoying time at the beach with my family. Celebrating my children’s birthdays, their laughs, and snuggling them. Life is too short not to enjoy the little moments.

5.     The quote “The world is your oyster” encourages girls to be fearless in their endeavors – What do you aspire to for your future?

To live, love well, and give all glory to God.

If you ask me what details up any outfit it’s hands down the bag and shoes. Of course, stripes are a great backdrop to almost every outfit, fishnet socks – I like short ones and a cognac leather bag. See here how I style more stripes. Happy Humpday!
