Comfy Bottoms

Owning comfortable, cute & practical bottoms is important to me and my style.  As a busy mom of 3, comfort is always my priority. But along with comfort, I love adding pieces to my wardrobe that I can style up or down and don’t compromise comfort!

I love searching my favorite shops and sites for comfortable pants.  When you own a variety of pants that you love, the outfit options are endless!  Some of my favorite stores to shop for cozy bottoms are Madewell, ASOS, Free People, Urban and Anthropologie!

I know you guys would love these WEEKEND WARRIOR PANTS from Free People as much as I do. I haven’t taken them off in days!  True to size & beyond comfortable.

The oversized pockets and waist tie on these ON THE HUNT TROUSERS are my favorite details!  You all know how much I love muted colors and this shade of beige is perfect!

Love the subtle grid pattern on these PLEATED WIDE LEG PANTS from Urban!  These would look so cute styled with a chunky sweater.

I might need these KEEP IT REAL FLARES.  Love the ribbed material and fitted look.

I love these WIDE LEG PANTS styled with those Dr. Martens! Such a good combo.  Throw in a graphic tee or sweater & I’d be all over this look.

The pink shade of these PUDDLE PANTS is beautiful!  I love the flow the wide legs have.

I love the small polka dots on these SATIN WIDE LEG PANTS from Urban!  I love where the leg crops and the high waist fit!

Dying over the floral pattern and colors on these MACKIE PANTS!  The pleated material is too good.

These simple FINE KNIT PANTS from H&M looks so comfortable!  I love the neutral shade of beige.

I’m a little obsessed with these MELLOW OUT PANTS from Free People!  Perfect for the spring!

I love just about anything from Madewell.  These ACE&JIG KATE PANTS are so cute!  I love the deep mustard color, they’re perfect for any season.

I looooove the lavender color of these WIDE LEG UTILITY PANTS from Anthro.  Such a perfect color of pants for the upcoming spring season!

These LINEN CULOTTES from ASOS may just be the perfect terracotta color, ever.  I need to add these to my collection!

Love the deep forest green of these CULOTTE PANTS!  Such a simple, cute pair of pants for any style!

These MAROON KICK FLARES would look so cute with an oversized tee and some chunky boots!  Love this look.

I could live in these CHEET DAY PANTS.  I love the wide leg fit!

PLAYHOUSE REMODEL

7Z5A4670

Winter break is officially over and so is my downtime.  You know what that means?  It means that I’m back at it and am so excited to share all of the details on my playhouse remodel!  I purchased THIS playhouse and was thrilled when I found out that they decided to make it in white (it only came as a dark wood before) saving me lots of time not having to paint the entire thing.  The table, door, chalkboard and roof all came as a dark gray but I gave them a good painting to brighten them up.

Before I began assembling the playhouse, I wanted to get everything painted first.  Here is everything I used!

PAINT

  • For the door + table I used THIS paint and color.
  • I am unable to find it online but I used PPG Glidden paint in the color Antique Linen for the roof
  • I used this cheap $10 PAINTBRUSH SET
  • I also wanted to change the mailbox flag and the chalk board to try and match the roof so THIS was the spray paint I used.
  • THIS is the spray paint I used for the numbers and door handle

 

DECORATIONS + TOYS/ PLAYFOOD 

 

I made sure that before I began to paint I had a tarp to lay everything out on because painting is MESSY!  I ended up doing two coats on each piece to effectively cover the dark gray.  I let the first coat sit for a few hours before I applied the second.

Once the painting was done, it was time to assemble the playhouse and I was so excited!  I could not wait to get it all put together so that I could officially see the finished product.

I do have one suggestion when it comes to assembling the playhouse — ALWAYS read the step that you are on AND the step that comes after.  Trust me, I learned the hard way!  For some reason these instructions don’t come with any writing, just a drawn picture of what you are supposed to do and I noticed that I was doing things incorrectly every once in a while.  For example, the big mistakes were when I would place a wood panel upside down because I wouldn’t notice that one side would have holes for screws and the other wouldn’t.  Once I would get to the next step I would see that I had drilled the entire panel in wrong and have to retrace my steps!

 I also made an AMAZON LIST dedicated just to this playhouse with some cute toy food, rug, play mixer, these wooden hooks and market bags + more!

I finally finished everything and could not wait for the kids to see!  The hardest thing was that I had it hidden over at my parents neighbors house and needed to get it to my backyard Christmas Eve night.  Luckily my brothers and parents live close so we called in all the man power we could find and they lifted it over some walls, drove it over, and placed it perfectly on our back patio.

Christmas morning came and the kids opened every present.  I found one present left and on the box it said, “Ho ho ho!  Run to the backyard for a BIG surprise!  Love, Santa”.  The kids ran out back and were so excited.  Well, Milo was at least.  Ruck was just excited about his new Nerf guns but now he loves to play in it.  Raen is also a big fan so it was the perfect Santa gift for everyone to enjoy!

We had the best Christmas and even now the kids will be outside playing for HOURS.  I think I ended up getting the best Christmas present of all — busy + happy kids!

High waisted pants

I felt like it was about time I put together a blog post about my favorite high waisted pants!  I fell in love with the high waisted style a few years ago and honestly can’t imagine wearing anything else.  I feel like they suck you in and are so flattering.  Now they’re pretty much all that I wear!

PANTS I TOP I HAT I SHOES
