Diaper Bag Roundup

Thought it would be fun to share some of my fav bags out there right now that are cute and can be turned into a diaper bag with the Tote Savvy. I haven’t ever been a big fan of most of the traditional diaper bags because they tend to be really bulky and its really hard to find cute ones.

I discovered this product called Tote Savvy that is such a game changer! Its a nylon insert that can go in any bag or tote. It has all these perfect pockets and spaces for you to organize your bag. In the past I would use normal purses and backpacks for a diaper bag but it was pretty impossible to keep things organized with all I had to pack for a baby.

You can easily fit all of this in the tote savvy and slide it in your bag for the day.

Below are photos of my fav bags that could easily be made into a diaper bags! If you click on the photo it will take you to the direct links.

The best Levi’s

6G4A7970

You know how people ask, “whats your love language?” Well, good denim is my love language!! That might be a slight exaggeration but I’m such a sucker for a new pair of jeans.  I always have to keep myself from exclusively buying denim.  For the last few years or so since Levi’s have been back on trend I have stocked up on some really good pairs. My Grandpa Olson used to call every pair of jeans “Levi’s” whether they were Wranglers or True Religions, they were all “Levi’s”, how cute is that? Before you buy your first pair of Levi’s be aware that they have little to no stretch, I usually size up one size.  They also rarely run in “tall” sizes so you might be looking at ankle jeans if you’re above 5’8′ or so, which if you cut off the hem can be super cute!  I thought it would be fun to direct you to some of my favorite denim, specifically Levi’s that are for sale right now.  Direct links are in bold and underlined below.

Light wash 501 tapered jeans are seriously tempting me lately! They look to be more of a boyfriendy ankle jean. So good.

These501 skinny jeans just might be my favorite wash that I own.  I sized up in these.

I don’t own a pair of black Levi’s..yet! haha but if I were to own a black pairthese would be the pair.

Free People sells a lot of good pairs of Levi’s..they sell 19 different washes of 501skinnies..my fav washes are the “post modern blues” and “can’t touch this”.

I’ve talked about theseLevi’s shorts before but they are so good! They’re a light wash and you can roll them up to be short shorts or have them unrolled to the mid thigh.  Can’t stop wearing them!

This wedgie high rise pair is so cute! More of a straight leg than skinny.

These Levi 721’s have been super popular!  A few of my friends own these.  They’re so flattering on, and I think they have more of a stretch to them than the 501’s.

I usually go for mid to light washes with jeans but these darker cropped Levi’sare just what I need.

These Levi’s mom jeans from FP are so so cute and look to be a bit more flattering than the traditional “mom jeans”

Last but not least these wedgie straight jeans have the best wash and most flattering fit!

I don’t think I can properly express the true joy I feel from a good pair of jeans through this post, but you get the idea!  Below are links to the jeans I talked about above.  Happy shopping!

Beachwear for Summer

I’ve always lived for summer.  By far my favorite season.  I love the feeling of spending a day under the sun and coming home at the end of the day, tired and happy.  Every year I like to get some new dresses, shorts and beachwear for summertime! This year I thought I would put together a post with my fav items! Direct links are in bold below.

Palm Springs

This striped romper I wore on our recent trip to Palm Springs is so comfy.

Yellow Free People minidress..I had to share!

Crochet linen crop top I am wearing in this photo is such a good deal!

Bought these Levis 501 denim shorts about a month ago and I’ve worn them about 10 times since.  I bought them two sizes up and love how they fit, I personally don’t love the way tight denim shorts look on my behind.

This tie strap dress has a total 70s vibe and I love the fit.

I wore this ruffle sleeve dress and I found this similar one on Urban in a bunch of different colors.  Loving on the violet!

This striped T-shirt front tie dress looks so comfortable, and could also be worn as an everyday item.

Obsessed with this Topshop shift dress.  Anything with wide sleeves and I’m sold!

This striped button front romper would be perfect over a swimmer.

Im so into this Madewell dress...well really anything neutral with stripes.

I love these high waisted, linen draw string shorts.

I could keep going for dayssss…there are so many goodies out right now.  Happy summer friends!!!

Mothers Day Gift Guide

May is a kind of a crazy month with celebrations, we have our anniversary on the 19th, my birthday on the 22nd and mothers day.  Poor Logan right? haha.  In the past I’ve kind of always wished that I could send him a “gift guide” like this to choose from.  So this year I made one that I thought would appeal to ladies of all ages.  This is basically my current wish list!  Send this to your hubs or use it to pick out the perfect thing for your Mom.

Gemma turns 3!!

Last thursday our Gemma girl turned 3!! We had a small celebration on her actual birthday which included eating Special K for breakfast, that was her breakfast of choice (over DONUTS!!) playing at the park, blowing bubbles, and getting in-n-out for dinner, her fav! Gemma is at the funniest age right now, she’s been testing my patience for SURE but mainly she just makes us laugh all day.   Some funny things Gemma’s said the last little while-

She walked out of the pantry the other day and said “don’t judge me!”

When her cousin Max was chasing her around the house, she said “stop max! ..I’m so so constipated!” hahaha

We found a lizard in the house and she named it “Feta”

When she wants more of something she’ll phrase it like “I need more strawbabies, do I?”

I told her to come look at some roses and she said, “those flowers are danger!!”

I asked Gemma what she wanted to do when she grows up and she said, “marbles!”

Seriously she says stuff like this all day! I have a running list on my phone so I won’t forget this hilarious stage.

We had a little party with friends and family on Saturday, Gemma doesn’t have tons of little toddler buddies in the area but we had our friends, some little cousins, and all her grandparents over and it was super fun! We had lunch and had the littles play games. We played “pin the party hat on the llama” I bought these llama party plates at Target and decided to make a silly game based on it. We had Gemma’s bubble machine going and a piñata.  Its the best seeing how excited toddlers get about the simplest things.

Here are a few photos from her party!

Gemmas Party6G4A73546G4A7345

I made this “balloon arch”! super simple.  Just bought a balloon hand pump, an assortment of balloon sizes and colors and this balloon arch decorating strip.  I’ve been wanting to make one of these for a while.  Other than the endless tying of the balloons it was fun!

6G4A7353

I got Gemma this geometric print dress last week and I’m really digging the design.

6G4A7367

I got Gemma this bubble machine for her birthday and I can’t decide if it was the best or worst decision.  She’s so happy while its going but when the bubbles run out, its not pretty!

These candy kabobs were so easy and the little ones loved them.

Girl after my own heart, a piece of candy in her mouth before we dig into the cake.

Happy Birthday little one.
