Skip Hop Dusty Rose Diaper Backpack

Happy Monday, friends! My beautiful Emily is back on the blog! If you missed the first one, see here. Now that she's 22 months old, she is letting her personality shine through. It's amazing to see her communicate with us and how much she understands. She's growing too fast! Speaking of growing, we were way over due for a new diaper bag. I knew this time I wanted something comfortable, yet chic that I could wear all the time. While searching for bags, I came across this Skip Hop backpack and let me tell you...it's exactly what I wanted. It has all the necessary compartments to hold the essentials for Emily, as well as serve as my "purse." I hate carrying a diaper bag and purse - it's just too much, and this bag just did it for me. It also comes in four different colors and it's made of durable, wipe-clean vegan leather. Oh, and it comes with a diaper pad, too! Done-deal.

Wearing Jewelry to the workplace


Deciding what jewelry to wear to the workplace is a little stressful; however, I am big believer of thinking outside the box. Listen, whether you are all about the basics or #teamprints, I think adding a necklace, bracelet, or statement earrings to your look is perfect! Remember, the key is not to go overboard but just give it the right touch to take it from simple to glam! 

Necklaces


I'm a huge fan of necklaces for the office. Especially, if I'm wearing a skirt or dress. When wearing a necklace, I may add small stud earrings or none at all - remember, less is more. *Tip: If wearing prints, go with a gold (or silver - whichever you prefer) statement necklace or if you decide to go for example, with a black or gray basic colored outfit, then I would go with a "in-your-face" statement necklace, ha! Again, that's just me. Here are some affordable statement necklaces that will dress up any look! 


Bracelets

If I'm wearing a short sleeve shirt or dress, I'll go for the dainty bracelet and the oversized stud earrings. Sometimes, I may just stick with the bracelet - I think it all depends in what mood I'm in, too. No biggie, just go with what you feel that day. 

Earrings

I have to say I wear these more than any other jewelry. I am a HUGE fan of Charming Charlie when it comes to jewelry for the workplace. They have so many options to choose from and are affordable, which is a win-win in my book! Another place I love to buy earrings from are Baublebar, as you can see here and here - obsessed! Here are some of my favorite picks below.

Fear of growing

What can I say, this post has lingered in my "drafts" for a while. Not going to lie, to click "publish" was quite frightening but at the same time, liberating. By no means, do I consider myself a "Guru" in the blogger world but I have to admit, the fear of growing freaks me the hell out. How does one pitch a sponsorship post when you don't have thousands of followers? J..."Let go, Let God." That's the words I've had on repeat since the beginning of the new year. NO more doubts, NO more hesitation. Just go for it! This year, I want to bring more content to my blog and share my experiences with y'all. I started using the poll option in Instagram to get a better feel of what you want to see and so far, it's been very helpful! Any-who, If you want to know a bit more about me, you may want to follow a long Instastories. ;) Happy Monday, friends!

How to wear a blanket scarf

A blanket scarf. Every girl should have at least one in their closet. Scarfs are comfy and the warmest accessory for winter. Unfortunately, mine has been hanging in my closet for too long because you know, San Diego weather! Although lately, I think could get away with wearing it since the temperature has been in the low 60's - in the afternoon that is, ha! There are so many ways to style a blanket scarf; however, I kept it simple. I let it hang loose on the front without doing too much. Another quick way to style your scarf is to drape it across your neck with one long end hanging out, as seen in the picture below. What's your favorite way to style a blanket scarf?
