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.

  • Sometimes being an adult you gotta do scary things like getting a bunch of bloodwork and other tests done in order to get answers that are needed but like I shared earlier this week it’s all about your mindset. Yes I was sweating and shaking with nerves wishing I didn’t have to do it but I also was thankful that I have a dr who cares and wants answers, thankful for that these tests are available to me and especially thankful for a gentle and kind nurse who made it easier for me.
  • Woke up to the most beautiful white snow and was immediately thankful it was snow and not the rain they are calling for - thankful that the kiddies have snow to play in (which makes them so happy) and thankful that we have different seasons to experience. It’s amazing how a grateful heart changes your out look on things. There is a lot I could chose to complain about today but where I put my thoughts is my choice and will definitely effects my  entire day! Look for the positives in your day focus on those and don’t give negative thoughts a place in your heart and mind!
  • Mama, You were given these children, you! No one else. 
You were given these children because you are who they need.
You have the soul to love them even on their hard days.
You have the motivation and love to give these children everything they need.
You have the heart to wake up every morning and do it all over again, 
Even when you are exhausted. You have the smile that they crave and the touch to make everything okay. You are their sunshine and their comfort. You are theirs and they are yours! On the days you are questioning yourself, remember this! You’ve got this!
