The girl behind the blog

I was recently asked how and why I began my blogging journey and what I like to blog about. I thought I would share with you the answers to these questions and my plan for the future. 
**Who am I: 

I am a mom of 4 kiddos (3 girls and a boy), wife (married for 14 years to my high school sweetheart), occupational therapist, and lover of all things fashion and shopping! I was the girl at work who who was forced to wear a uniform of sorts but always found a way to accessorize that uniform and make it unique and stylish! I have loved shopping since I can remember. Some of my favorite memories are when my mom and I would take all day shopping trips–we would literally lose track of time and even forget to eat because of how much we enjoyed shopping and finding a good sale! 

**Why I started blogging:

I actually started an Instagram page first with the nudging from a couple of my husbands cousins! They commented on a few different occasions that I should, so a couple of years ago I thought, why not! After posting selfies in my outfits for about a year I decided it was time to start a blog–and mostly because all the “big time” Instagram fashion accounts did, so I figured I better too, lol!! I have now went from posting selfies to recruiting my supportive hubby as my photographer (and believe it or not sometimes my 8 year old daughter too)!!

**What I blog about:

I love, and let me stress, LOVE a good sale! With 4 kids, I mostly focus on budget friendly items and of course I will splurge on a few special pieces each season too (those that I know will be pieces that will last and can be worn many ways or for many seasons to come). My fave items to blog about are pieces I can wear everyday! I adore casual dresses, leggings with tunic tops, distressed denim, booties, statement necklaces, and denim jackets to name a few! I frequently shop at Target, Macy’s, Nordstrom, American Eagle, SheIn, Express, H&M, and Forever 21, as well as local and online boutiques for one of a kind pieces! 

**Future Goals

Well, I would ultimately love to blog full time about fashion and style and possibly blog about traveling with my family too–but until that day happens (🙏) I plan to keep moving forward and do my best posting what I love–fashion!! I really do love showcasing my finds and sharing them with all my followers. 

Below I will share a few of my favorite outfit posts thus far and link them if the looks are still available too! Thank you for following along on my journey, I appreciate the support! 

Questions:

Do you have any ideas for me? Would you like to see me post about anything new? I’m open to new ideas and I always love reading your comments and do my very best to respond to each and every comment ❤️ Nicole

I just adore the color yellow, one of my faves for sure!
Statement necklaces are my jam! I own way too many to count, but I keep on buying them! My daughters are never going to need any, I’ve got tons for them, lol!!
Bralettes under dresses are a definite must for me!
I’m wearing high waist leggings that are my most comfy ones I’ve ever owned! Nice and thick too, great support! (Leggings are pants ya know)!!! Plus this tunic I own in 3 colors, so comfy and affordable too!
Distressed denim is my absolute fave!
Love a great sweater jacket. This one is from New York & Co last season.

  1. Absolutely love your style mama! And I’m totally with you on finding affordable pieces more so after kids. 😉

  2. I love that your husbands cousins encouraged you to blog! That is amazing! I agree with them, you have a unique style and way of layering items I would never think of! That kind of style needs to be shared with others so they can see how they can wear their clothes too! Ps that yellow lace dress is my favourite too!! Xo Jen http://abeautifulinspiration.com

  3. That’s so awesome that your husband and your daughter take photos of you for your blogs! I wish you success with your blogging journey! I love that statement necklace, you rock in it!❤️
