Hi!!!
Happy Monday y’all, I’m all hyped up today because…
1. I’ve got some exciting news to share!!
2. We get to see our sweet boy (via ultrasound) today!!
Okay, exciting news first.
I am sososo excited to announce that I’ve officially been accepted into the rewardStyle Program.
What does that mean?!
You can shop my outfits with just one click! Or one screenshot!
If you follow me on Instagram and don’t already have the LIKEtoKNOW.it app,
you should totally download it now!
Once downloaded, you can just screenshot my posts and you will receive
a notification and direct links to each item that I’m wearing!
(greatest invention ever, right?!)
Or if you prefer to come to my blog, there will be links here as well!
I’m all about making shopping easier,
and I love having direct links to go too when I see an item that I love!
So no more searching babes, shopping my looks just got a whole lot easier!!

Okay, on to todays outfit!



//  Dress // Booties // Earrings  // Necklace //

I’ve been eyeing this dress in the rust color for SO long now,
I needed a new dress for a friends wedding this Sunday and they ended up not having my size in the rust color.
Which was actually totally fine because the black was G O R G E O U S.
However, looking back I definitely could’ve gone with the XS instead of the S!
The fit runs big so I would suggest sizing down if you decide to order one.
Okay, let’s talk about these booties…
I caved in and purchased them last year and it was the best decision EVER.
I love the pointed toe, and they are so comfy, even while pregnant I can wear them all day!
I’m definitely going to get them in brown this year, they are a MUST.
I’ll link the brown color for y’all HERE.

We drove back home from Dallas late last night because
we have our 20 week anatomy scan this morning!!
So i’m off to eat a healthy breakfast and get ready to see my baby boy!
Happy Monday y’all!

It takes me a little longer to get ready these days now that my body is changing so much!
Clothes just don’t fit me the way that they used too,
I can wear things that I used to look terrible in, and I can’t wear some of my all time favorite pieces.
The struggle is SO real, but I wouldn’t change it for the world.
I snapped this pic super quick as I was heading out the door yesterday!
Apologies for the poor quality/poor lighting iPhone pic, sometimes that’s just all ya got time for!

Camo Tee // Jeans // Booties {seriously y’all I never take these off} // Bag

I wore this casual little outfit to an impromptu girls night last night!
Since being pregnant, I’m all about comfort, and this tee is JUST that.
The material is crazy soft and I love that it’s just the right length for a growing bump!
{Don’t worry, I’ve included a direct link to order it}
It’s a total must have for literally any season, looks adorable by itself and is so easy to layer!

I’m going to be sharing a post on my favorite maternity stores later this week,
but I might as well fill y’all in on one of them today,
which is PinkBlush!
They carry regular sizes as well, but I have been a HUGE fan of their maternity line!
Their prices aren’t outrageous, the clothes are super comfy and great quality.
I’ve been on the hunt for some good maternity jeans, and I’ve scored my two favorite pairs
from PinkBlush!
So if you want to stay fashionable during pregnancy make sure you check them out!

I’ve got a busy day of errands today and then TOMORROW we get to see our baby!
We have our 20 week ultrasound/anatomy scan and I couldn’t be more excited
to see how much he’s grown!
If you think about it, please be praying that all goes well and that he’s healthy and growing properly.

Happy Hump Day y’all!!

I’ve never been a huge fan of “outfit repeating” but I’ve always been a fan of buying items
that can easily be styled multiple different ways!
Whenever I saw this little OTS dress I knew it was a *must have* this Fall,
not to mention is was only 10 bucks!! I decided to dedicate todays post to styling this dress 3 different ways! I have a feeling you’ll be seeing this dress a lot around here!

Look #1


Dress // Sweater // Boots // Necklace

Look #2

Dress // Booties

Look #3

Dress// Chambray top// Sneaks

Which look is your fav?!

Happy Tuesday Babes!!


A super casual and normal Saturday,
turned out to be the day I felt the happiest I’ve ever felt in my entire life…..

Kyle and I woke up early Saturday morning and drove across town to pick up a couch that my amazing parents decided to give us! We’ve had Kyle’s old leather “college couch” our entire marriage,
and Lord have mercy, it was TIME for a new(ish) couch.

We picked the couch up {as well as some breakfast tacos}, spent some time with my parents and then headed back home! I’m currently in my 2nd trimester of pregnancy and everyone always talks about this “insane amount of energy” the 2nd trimester brings, and unfortunately, I haven’t witnessed that yet. Yes, I do feel GREAT, and have way more energy than I did the 1st trimester…
But if I stand too long or do too much my body is NOT happy.
Needless to say, I needed to relax once we got home because I knew we had plans with Kyle’s family that afternoon!
Baby boy has been kicking up a storm lately and I always feel him most when i’m resting.
I’ve tried to get Kyle to feel him countless times but he is never able too.
I can feel him kick on the outside sometimes but Kyle never can, so I figured maybe I can only feel him on the outside because I feel him on the inside also…if that make sense?

Anyways, Kyle and I headed to his grandparents around 2pm to be with the family and celebrate his Papas 80th birthday!
After dinner baby boy was going NUTS in my tummy. I was sitting on the couch and Kyle’s little sister Michelle was right next to me, so of course she put her hand on my tummy just to see if she could feel anything….
I’m so used to him kicking and Kyle not reacting because he can’t feel it, so when he kicked and Michelle turned to me with her mouth wide open, I just about lost it!!
SHE FELT HIM!!
It took about everything in me not to cry.
Of course we grabbed Kyle and had him put his hand on my tummy so he could feel,
but still…nothing.
Which was so frustrating, I just wanted him to feel our baby.

Fast forward a few hours and we finally made it home.
It was about 10pm and I laid on my back on the couch,
and said “alright babe, let’s try this again, he’s kicking!”
Kyle put his hand on my tummy and we waited a few seconds,
then all of the sudden baby kicked super hard…
Kyle’s eyes widened, he had a huge smile on his face,
“I FELT THAT!” he said.
I immediately started giggling uncontrollably from happiness,
and then baby boy kept kicking super hard over and over and over,
and Kyle kept saying, “I felt that!! I felt that too!!!”
I honestly can’t even describe the feeling of emotions that came over me in that moment.
I was giggling like a kid and crying, and smiling SO big it hurt.
I’ve never experienced such pure joy in my entire life.
It was the best moment, the sweetest moment, a moment that i’ll carry with me
for the rest of my life.
I’m so glad it happened when it was just us, I think the moment would’ve been a lot different if he had felt the baby when the entire family was around and there was just so much going on.
It was perfect.
Can’t wait for our appointment Thursday to see how much he’s grown!

Happy Wednesday babes!

I’ve teamed up with the cutest boutique ever and ALL of you
 can take 10% off your order with my code “Monica10” (valid for 30 days)!!!

Hope’s has so many cute items but one thing I just HAD to have was this plum laced up sweater.
I ended up getting the size medium because I wanted it to be more of an oversized fit,
and I knew I wanted to wear it off the shoulder!
This sweater comes in 3 different colors, and their items sell QUICK so don’t wait too long to order.

Sweater {take 10% off with code Monica10} // Jeans, cute option, cute option  // Shoes


So a “cold front” came in this week and it’s FINALLY below 90 degrees in Houston!!
*Shout out to Jesus*
Kyle and I took the pup for a walk late last night and it felt so dang nice.

Can’t wait to bust out the rest of my sweaters and favorite cozy pieces,
Fall is my F A V O R I T E.
We’re still kind of at that awkward stage in Houston where it’s cold in the mornings and at night,
but you’ll sweat your butt off if you try wearing a sweater in the middle of the day…

But hey i’m not complaining, Cooler weather is right around the corner!
{I hope}

Happy Hump Day!
(PS I’ve worked out every day this week, y’all would be so proud)
