Rule What Rule?

It’s past labor day, school has officially started, and the weather has started to cool down. Okay, so that’s only partially true… The weather is cooler in the morning and at night, but it is still blazing hot during the day! Southern California doesn’t really get the fall memo until like October. It’s annoying. I love all the seasons and thoroughly believe it’s time to start pulling out my dark colors and cardigans. Fall and cooler weather just make me so happy! It’s the start of all the holidays, and all the fun activities that come with that! I’ve already started brainstorming Christmas gifts, and I am full fledged ready to carve a pumpkin. Who’s with me?!

I am definitely not ready to put away my white jeans though! I was so nervous to buy them and then even more to start wearing them out and about. I think they sat in my drawer for a few week before I was brave enough to put them on. However, now I am a fan! I’ve worn them out a few times now and I love them. They match with everything and I can wear them to work unlike normal denim. I am more aware of how much I touch my pants when I have white jeans on, but it’s not so bad! I am a total clutz though and am really scared to spill on them. I know it’s going to happen one day. Every time I wear them I’ve thrown a pair of blue jeans in my car just in case I something spills and it’s a total mess. Who knows if I’ll ever get so comfortable in them that I don’t bring another a pair of pants.

Now onto the necklace! This statement necklace is from Happiness Boutique. They are a cute little online jewelry boutique with a really classic style. They have all sorts of things from necklaces to bracelets and earrings. If you’re looking for some good statement earrings they have a lot of options. AND they are offering Moo’s Musing readers 10% off any purchase over $25 with code: moosmusing. The code is valid Monday, September 11th until October 11th so don’t miss out!

Button-Up or Button-Down?

August 22, 2017

j crew striped button upspring white jeans outfit white jeans and blue button up striped button up summer outfit inspo summer outfit Moo's Musing white jeansWhy do some stores call it a button-up and others call it a button-down? Technically I button from the top down so do I need to call it a button-down? These are the random things that cross my mind…but I am actually really curious! Which do you call it?

My boyfriend loves this shirt. I wore it to work one time and he saw it in snapchat, and just loved it! The day we shot these photos was the first time I wore it around him, and he was so stoked! Every time I wear a button-up he gives me so many compliments. I’m not sure what it is about striped button-ups that he loves so much, but I’ll just keep wearing them! Do your significant others have that one outfit or piece of clothing they just seem to prefer over others?

This button-up is actually a few years old, and I believe I scored it at one of those Forever 21 50% off clearance deals they always do. I tried to find some other less expensive options to link for y’all. However, J Crew just released their fall new arrivals and they have this button-up that is super similar to this! There’s so many good new arrivals! I’m so ready to start fall shopping. I’ve already started pulling out the darker color nail polishes. The last week or so the mornings have been so cold and I can just feel fall coming. Yet, typical So Cal is suppose to heat back up to the 100’s this weekend. So no sweaters for me yet.

Sunglasses from Glassesshop.com + A Giveaway

August 18, 2017

sunglasses glassesshop.com prescription sunglasses prescription sunglassesI’m the type of person who really only keeps one pair of sunglasses at a time. The more I think about this though the more of an issue it is! I seriously should have at least two pairs. Just this last week my go to pair broke and I spent multiple days with nothing. It was awful! Driving was hard, and wearing broken sunglasses just is not a good look. Trust me! I don’t wear glasses so having multiple pairs of some form of eye wear around just never happened. However, I am starting to think multiple pairs of sunglasses is a thing that needs to happen.

For those of you who do wear glasses have you ever ordered your eyeglasses online? I practically order everything online now a days (thank you amazon), and getting sunglasses online was actually easier than expected! I know my face shape, and what type of frames look best on my face. After that scrolling through and picking ones I liked was pretty simple. GlassesShop.com had a really great selection of choices. I received the Annabelle Round in Tortoise. The great thing for those who do need eyeglasses is you can just pick your frames, send them your prescription, and boom you have new glasses! They’ll even create prescription sunglasses too!

GlassesShop.com is offering Moo’s Musing readers 50% off with code: GSHOT50. It’s good for all eyeglasses and sunglasses with free lenses only throughout the website, with the exception of sales frames.

But wait! Not only can you buy your own frames, but I’m giving you the option to win this Annabelle pair too! Follow the instructions below for entry opportunities.

Life Changes and Time Management

Y’all working full time is no joke! I’m on my third week now and man is it a major adjustment. There seems to be a lot less hours in the day when you spend 9 of them at work. I am slowly learning how to balance everything, but it definitely is a change. I give so much credit to bloggers who work full time and keep up a blog, and a social life. It’s not an easy task!

Learning to say no to things is also a big adjustment. I’ve worked part time since I was 15. I worked while also going to school, and usually had multiple other side projects and little jobs that I did. However, that just isn’t going to work anymore! There’s just not enough time to balance it all. So bare with me as I get the hang of things. I’ve found shooting blog content on the weekends and scheduling posts ahead of time is a definite help! I’ve also learned to work in my random one hour breaks between work and seeing the boyfriend or before bed.

Matt and I got to shoot this outfit last weekend after church. While I do think this top is cute, it is a little big. Being so petite seriously has it’s challenges y’all! I can’t just order something off line and know it’s gonna fit, and one size fits all pieces is just a joke! I’ve found ways like tucking shirts in or knotting them up helps. However, this top my be being passed a long to a friend.

Berry Picking and Gingham

July 26, 2017

Berry picking season is in full swing! I think almost all berries are in season right now, and our local u-pick farm has tons! Berry picking is probably one of my favorite summer activities. I love spending any time I can outdoors, and this is something that we don’t get to do on the regular.

Usually, my whole family goes picking but this year I got to make a double date out of it. My boyfriend had never been before so we went and invited some of his close friends. He thought paying to pick fruit and help someone else’s farm out seemed silly, but afterward he was totally on board! He said it was more fun than he thought it was going to be; which made me pleased. This little day activity was the first time he had the roll of blogger boyfriend/photographer, and I think the photos came out pretty good! We’ll see how he does growing into the roll ;P

Since we were berry picking as a double date I didn’t want to wear my boots like last year. I had purchased this top on sale actually intending to wear it in Canada and just never did. When I started searching for a berry picking outfit this top was totally perfect! I’m so glad I didn’t shoot it while traveling because gingham is seriously perfect for this! (I actually just noticed I even wore gingham last year too…opps!) I was a little nervous wearing my pink tennis shoes while picking the Ollalie berries since they stain, but I walked away just fine! It was seriously such a fun day!

Dresses For Summer Weddings Under $30

July 19, 2017

J Crew Dress Summer Wedding Summer Wedding Guest Dress

Summer wedding season has been here, and I’ve already attended some. Wedding season is seriously my favorite! I love seeing everyones different styles and dresses. I’ve always loved weddings, and even more so after working as a wedding planner last year. Seeing my own friends get married, or people I actually know is way more heart warming. It’s so much fun supporting people on their big day.

Being that I have multiple weddings on the books already I’ve rounded up some of my favorite dresses that you could wear as a guest! All of the dresses are under $30 too!

Lately, I’ve been loving layering a leather jacket over my dresses. I am always cold, so going to a wedding without a sweater or jacket is seriously not an option!

What do you normally wear when you go to weddings?

Embroidered Top With Chicwish

June 20, 2017

Yes, you have probably seen this top before on a few other bloggers. I just couldn’t help but choose it when I had the opportunity to collaborate with Chicwish. They have tons of cute options in their shop, but this one just is so cute I couldn’t help but gravitate toward it.

The top is called chambray, and while I guess you could classify it as that it’s not denim at all. The embroidery on it seems super well done so I’m not worried about it coming apart in the wash. I only wore this top for a short amount of time so I’m not sure if the fabric is easily wrinkled, but it might be. You can tell in the photos that the top goes high to low which isn’t my favorite thing ever, but I think for a pregnant mama this shirt could totally work. It is a one size fits all kind of top which usually don’t fit me. I’m an XS or SM in everything so the shirt is a little large on me. I don’t mind it since it’s meant to be flowy though.

Chicwish has a ton of other cute options for summer, and they are running a Fourth of July sale! This pineapple set is adorable! Imagine it for a summer wedding or outdoor dinner party. Eyelet is super in right now, and I almost ordered this top instead. Seriously y’all they have some great options!

Thank you Chichwish for sponsoring this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
