My Kind Of Sweat: Postpartum Fitness Week 3 Update

We’re already 3 weeks into April – how crazy is that?!  The theme of this week’s post is SLOW + STEADY.  My postpartum fitness challenge is well underway, and it’s becoming more of a lifestyle change than anything.  As you may remember, my goal at the beginning of April was to move and sweat every single day of the month. I’m proud to say that …

Spring Style Crush: Espadrilles

Now that the sun has finally made her appearance again in Chicago (and yes, I totally assume the sun is a woman. Obvs.), we are all shedding our layers, getting our pedicures and breaking out our best spring + summer sandals.  Espadrilles remind me of growing up. I remember seeing my mom wear them a lot. She was always tan, with the best legs around. …

Easy (+ Affordable!) Spring Style

Hi, friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and sweet Easter. We had family in town early in the weekend and then spent a quiet Easter day at home. It was sunny and warm in Chicago and pretty much perfect.  Also, I’ve gotta give a special shout out to The Mister who is in Boston to run the marathon today. YAY! Go, babe!  …

My Kind Of Sweat: Postpartum Fitness Week 2 Update

You guys, I’ve started to feel like Oprah – always putting a picture of me as the cover photo. So, this time there’s an inspirational quote. BAM. So, I can’t ever remember a crazier week. Whoa. Deep breath. With appointments and meetings and a photo shoot and family visiting and motherhood and sleep and all of the things, it was hard to fit everything in.  Still, I …

Why Is The 4th Trimester So Hard? 5 Things…

I’ve been thinking a lot about that tricky 4th trimester. Partly because I’m smack dab in the middle of it (actually 2/3rd’s of the way through, but who’s counting), but also because a family friend is due to have her first baby in a couple of months.   I’m going to her baby shower in May, and while I want to pour my heart out and …

My Kind Of Sweat: Postpartum Fitness Week 1 Update

One week into my April postpartum fitness challenge and I’m feeling pretty damn good! Tired, but good. 😉 This week was one of experimentation and trying to figure out how to fit in all the things, while also maintaining my sanity and trying to get as much sleep as possible. Overall, I did pretty well. While I changed the schedule a bit (no Beach Ball …

March Instagram Round Up

Happy hump day! (I don’t know why I just said that. I hate when people say that.) It’s been a minute since I’ve done an Insta Round Up on here, so I’d say it’s high time. Let’s talk LIKEtoKNOW.It first, though. Have you guys downloaded the new app? Now you can shop my looks on Instagram by taking a SCREENSHOT. How crazy is that? Just download the app, …

The Perfect Striped Dress For Spring

Another day, another outfit with my go-to sneakers. But you guys, this time I’m wearing them with a striped dress, which obviously means I’m totally dressed up.  (I’ll wear heels again soon. But these tootsies are in DIRE need of a pedicure and right now ain’t nobody got time for that.) This is THE perfect striped dress for spring. Especially if you live in the …

My Kind Of Sweat: Postpartum Fitness

Happy Friday! I mentioned in Wednesday’s post that today I would be sharing some thoughts on postpartum fitness. So, here goes… I haven’t focused on fitness much on here, even though it’s always been a huge part of my life. I started this blog to help mamas find their style, even in the crazy chaos of motherhood. A huge part of style is confidence and feeling great …

Slouchy Spring Sweater + Sneakers

Happy Wednesday, friends! I hope you’re all having a wonderful week so far. The girls and I are slowly getting into our own little rhythm, which makes the whole work-at-home mama thing a lot easier. The Mister and I were even able to sneak out and get in a photoshoot of my slouchy spring sweater! Yay.  Remember last week when I shared my favorite new …
