Happy Mail All Around

Inbound and outbound happy mail week! I got my second Rocksbox set, which I love.  I don’t have any druzy stone jewelry and I’m surprised how much I like this ring. You will be seeing these pieces styled in my next few weeks ootds before I send them back to try some new pieces. Try it free for a month by using code STYLETHISLIFEXOXO.

I also got a Bumpstyle Box and I am working on a post to show you the pieces this coming week. After filling out an online survey, I was sent four maternity items to try. If I like the items I can purchase part or all of the set and if not, I send them back. Stay tuned to see what items I was sent and how I styled them.

On the complete other end of the spectrum, I’m also slowly working at downsizing my wardrobe, and I sold four tops, 2 pair of pants, a skirt, and some jewelry on ebay and poshmark this week! I’m planning a major closet cleanout this weekend. Sending off packages is just as fun as getting them when you’re in a declutter mindset!

Outside time

I mean, a weekly update wouldn’t be complete without some kids pics, right? They’re just so darn cute!

Liv on scooter
Oh lordy, this girl is a crazy one. Always on the go and always talking. She cracks me up like no other, but boy she’s exhausing!

Miles went to a birthday party – the boys LOVED the bumper boats! It was his first time being tall enough to be the driver.

Started Planning Next Capsule

As I start the third trimester I am already finding a few shirts that are getting too short – why do they even make maternity shirts like that?! Isn’t that the point of maternity? Anyway, I’m also mourning the end of fitting into my fave black maternity skinnies. The belly band has just gotten way too tight to be comfortable. I’m going to hang on to them though, because I know they’ll make an appearance postpartum.

I’m planning to add a few more tank tops to my capsule and a few more short sleeve options to get me to my July due date. In exchange, I’ll take out the more wintery style items. I’m starting to do some online shopping for my new pieces and I’ll keep you posted.

Does anyone have any favorite maternity stores? I kind of keep going to the same-old standbys…target, old navy, motherhood…

New Blog Schedule

My biggest goal on the blog right now is to make it worth your time to read. Because I already post my every day outfits on instagram, I am going to cut back on doing the repeat posts here. Instead, I’ll do ootd posts a couple of times a week. I’m also really wanting to work on the quality of my pics, so posting less often gives me time to download pics off my “real” camera so I don’t have to rely on the efficiency of my phone camera to get posts up quick.

I also started brainstorming lots of fun posts to share with you all! Oh, how I wish I was Texan and could say ya’ll!

Pretty planners make organizing so fun.

Hope ya’ll (does it work for me?) are having a great weekend!
