The Sustainable Brand You Should Know About

While we’re not perfect, Mike and I try to live a conscious lifestyle. And by conscious I mean that we do our best to really think through every decision we make and try to be as present as possible. I’ve been plant-based for over 10 years (Mike has been plant-based for 3 years), we eat as organic as possible, we use clean products in our home and on our bodies, I’m slowing transitioning to all clean beauty products, we take on a very conscious parenting approach, and we’ve been trying to limit our plastic use (not just for the planet, but for our health). This is something we’re passionate about and hope to slowly do our part for ourselves, our family, and the planet. With that being said, I haven’t done the best job in seeking out sustainable clothes. It’s quite daunting because part of my job is sharing my fashion finds and shopping, so I definitely need to try to find a balance. Luckily, there’s brands that are taking a sustainable and conscious approach and these brands are now more accessible than ever.

Living Room Reveal + Sources

Crystalin Marie Living Room

Our full living room is finally on the blog! I’ve been meaning to do more posts like this, sort of like a resource post for each room in our house, and I’m happy to have at least one up, ha. I wanted to get this post up asap because I’m going to add a few fall elements soon (and will do a blog post on that) AND because I’m already in the I-want-to-change-things-up phase. I figure, getting our day-to-day living room reveal up would help answer any questions I’ve been getting about sources before I change things up. I would love to switch out the rug and even get a new white/cream couch. I’m probably crazy, but I think my decor style maybe changing just a bit. Well see …

Fall Fashion Under $110

Walmart we dress america

Temps have dropped and it’s really starting to feel like fall here in Oregon. I’m slowing transitioning my wardrobe and moving my fall/winter clothes into my closet and putting my summer clothes into storage. Summer flew by, but I’m excited to see what fall has in-store for us. Other than my first few outerwear purchases (yes, I’ve made some) and getting a new pair of boots (haven’t purchased those yet), nothing gets me more excited about fall than finding affordable pieces that I know you guys will love.

Travel-Savvy Style with M.M.LaFleur

MM LaFleur Travel pants

I receive countless DM’s and emails about sharing more office appropriate outfits and finds. I’ve never really worked (for an extended period of time to build my work wardrobe) in an office setting, so my style tends to lean more toward casual and relaxed. With that being said, I recently teamed up with M.M.LaFleur to share their new fall travel-friendly collection. Think office meets travel, so everything is very comfortable, easy to wear, washable, and wrinkle-resistant. I may not work in an office, but I’m all for elevated, comfortable, and machine-washable clothes, I’m mean who isn’t?

Recent Outerwear Purchases + Restocks

Fall 2019 Outerwear

I love so many things about fall fashion, but I think I get most excited about outerwear. Jackets and coats are such a pivotal piece in cold weather dressing and they make such a statement. I have quite the collection now that I live in Oregon, but I’m still always looking out for what’s new. In general, the petite selection is limited, which always bums be out, but on top of that, small sizes sell out quick. I start looking for my outerwear in August. I know that seems crazy, but that’s how I’ve been able to expand my collection. I buy before everyone else starts to buy. I’ve already picked up a few new pieces (many still en route), but I thought I would do a roundup of everything I’m seeing so far. All but 2 coats are petite-friendly or come in petite sizes. If you’re at all thinking about picking up a few new outerwear pieces, I would definitely start your shopping now. Things will sell out fast.

Our Outdoor Deck Makeover with Article

You guys all know how much we love Article, we have their pieces all throughout our home, and I’m so excited to team up with them again to give our outdoor deck a makeover! Not until the beginning to middle part of summer did I realize, our deck had potential. Mike decided to power wash it and all of a sudden the space was transformed. I was like, okay we could do something up here. The large pine trees plus the harsh weather in Oregon make it pretty difficult to do anything in our backyard, so the only space we really thought to furnish and make nice was our deck.

Harper’s 20 Month Update + Schedule

Finally a Harper update. She’s getting SO big and even more adorable, if you can believe it. It appears she may be getting her 2 yr molars soon because she’s been all over the place lately. Normally, she’s a pretty happy girl. So, when she starts to fuss and be really clingy, we know something is up. She also has her hands in her mouth constantly… although maybe this is just an age thing. More meltdowns, only wants mama, and is only really happy out of the house, lol. So, while things have been challenging lately, we are loving this age so much.
