I love the fact I live in a country where we get to experience all the seasons soley for the purpose of changing my wardrobe. Is that awful to say? I mean I truly to appreciate the beauty in the 4 different seasons. As I type this I can see all the trees out our backyard changing colours they are so vibrant and beautiful and I didn’t have to travel any distance to see or experience that. But another reason to enjoy the ever changing seasons is switching out my wardrobe. Ill admit I think fall is my favourite season to dress for because hello all the warm cozy layers – whats not to love. And for my kids I don’t have to bundle them up too much (yet) which is nice and makes for easier and quicker mornings getting out the door. I don’t typically buy a lot of clothes for myself because well buying for my kids is just more fun and cute but I do believe in purchasing a few key pieces as I like to call them that make for super functional pieces to create different looks.

 

Leather Leggings – these Vegan leggings are one of those higher end purchases but if your a mom and you too believe leggings are pants (I’m slightly joking) these are a must have. The hold you in and don’t lose their shape. I have had mine for 2 seasons now and still love them. I have been tempted to try the Spanx ones – anyone else try them and what do you think?

Camo Jacket – this is a staple to not only functionally keep you warm but it is a pop of colour/pattern. I love to pair mine with a plaid shirt or a white and black striped long sleeve. I pretty much love anything camo as much as I do leopard.

Wool Hat Because we all have hat days and this is a cute way to hid that dirty 3 day ole hair

Denim Shirt If you looked into my closet or my kids you would probably be like my husband and make fun of me for the amount of denim shirts we all ow but I swear they are a staple for all seasons. This one I recently purchased and love because of the length. It can cover my bum and I can throw it on with leggings or wear it as a sweater open with a shirt underneath as well.

Boots – I love a good boot – well lets be real I love shoes in general but a good boot is important for fall and winter. I don’t mind spending a bit more on a good boot that is practical, comfy and will last. These boots I have and love and get compliments all the time when I wear them and although they are a bit pricey they are super comfy and so functional.

Basic Long Sleeve Henley its a basic enough said! For wearing under a sweater, or under an open button up to layering under a vest a henley is a fall must have and this one is under $15.

Long Sweater A chunky knit long sweater is a must in my opinion. Because I am tall I always gravitate to longer sweaters but if you aren’t into the long ones a waist length one would be super functional as well. I am obsessed with carmel colour for fall and this sweater is just gorgeous.

Jean – I love a good high waisted jeans and I love the details of the raw hem on these ones and they are under $50 and I have been living in these.

  • The privilege and blessing it is to be their mommy is one I don’t take for granted ever. They were each worth the years of heartache. Today is always an emotional one for me so today I say “Happy Mother’s Day” to all the moms - the first time moms, the seasoned ones, the mommy’s in waiting, the hurting ones, the grieving one wether that be from the loss of a mom or a loss of a baby/child, to the foster mamas, to the bonus moms to the adoptive mommy’s and the birth moms - I am thinking of you today and I hope you feel love and valued because you are!
  • As a mommy I find myself often times so proud to be the mommy of my little people. I remember being proud when they slept through the night or took their first steps. The older they get the more proud I am of them not necessarily when they simply accomplish a task or master a skill but when they make choices that show their true character. This girl had another gymnastics competition today and she was feeling all kinds of nerves but as she told her brother and sister “I just went out there and did it” and that she did. I was so proud of her not just for being brave or not just because she put lots of work into learning her skills and ended up placing in each event she competed in but because my 6 year old was awarded the sportsmanship trophy for the ages 7-9 in the competition. That to me as her mama made me cry and beam with pride. My girl out there with a positive attitude encouraging the other athletes and competing in a kind and fair manner that’s what it’s all about to this mama. I can take no credit for her awards or her trophy today she earned them all but I sure am proud and not afraid to say it. I love you #graylynnhope and I’m proud to be your mama not just today but everyday!
