HEY GUYS!!!! Whoa, this will actually be my first post for the year 2017. Talk about slacking! I’ve missed my blog and finally found some time to do a post. I’m excited for today’s post as I’ll be sharing with you my newest and current favorite Spring accessory.
Before pregnancy, you would never find my wrist without a watch. I’d wear one to work, to run errands, to go on dinner dates, etc. I felt completely naked whenever I didn’t have one. After I gave birth, I pretty much gave up wearing all of my accessories including watches. I didn’t want anything to accidentally scratch Rylie or fall off where it could become a choking hazard, so like my blog, I put everything on the side and kind of forgot about it 😦
When JORD reached out to me, I was quickly drawn to their unique and timeless (pun intended) style of wooden watches. They have quite a big selection of men’s and women’s styles you can choose from. After what felt like forever trying to decide on the perfect watch to fit my style, I finally chose the Cora Zebrawood & Turquoise watch. I love how the turquoise face and swarovski crystal markers contrast beautifully against the zebrawood. This watch can easily be worn dressed up or more casually as I styled it in my pictures below.
With Mother’s day AND Father’s day coming up quickly, a timepiece would make for a perfect gift! I’ve partnered up with JORD to give my readers/followers a chance at winning $100 gift code towards a watch of their choice. The sweet deal about this is everyone who enters but did not win, will receive a $25 gift code. The contest will end on 04/09/2017 and you can enter by clicking on this link: https://www.woodwatches.com/g/loveandrylie
Hope everyone has a great rest of the week 🙂 Thanks for visiting, and good luck!
Living in Hawaii means summer all year round aka it is forever hot here >insert kim k crying face< So when we finally reach September, I get pretty excited to wear colors that I associate with fall and more importantly, that my favorite drink of the season is back on menu. The one and only PSL or pumpkin spice latte for you non-starbucks drinkers 😛 I literally have at least one a week! I also have this crazy obsession with all things pumpkin scented but we can talk about that another day.
Recently I’ve been obsessing over anything blush and mauve/plum, and found a perfect bag in this combo from the Kate Spade outlet. Below I did a flatlay of my bag found here (I think the color I have is only available at the outlet) + my current favorite top found here + my absolute favorite nude matte lip found here + nail polish by O.P.I. in the shade Do you take lei away? + favorite rings I wear daily from a boutique located in Hawaii.
And here’s a few of my favorite fall pieces from Rylie’s closet:
Speaking of Rylie, poor baby caught roseola last weekend after our play date at the mall. I could totally kick myself for not being my usual crazy germaphobe self that day. Sigh. It started off with Rylie having a fever of 102 degrees. She had this fever on and off for 4 days and it would range from 100 degrees to as high as 103. We took her to her doctor and was instructed to give her baby tylenol and lukewarm baths to help keep her fever from spiking very high. Throughout the day and during the night, we kept Rylie in a thin cotton shirt and just her diaper. She also had a big loss of appetite and was extra extra fussy and clingy. After the 4th day, her fever immediately disappeared and I started to notice tiny red dots on her back. After doing my own research and confirming with her doctor, I already knew she had what is called roseola. Her face, tummy, and back are now covered in this red rash, which thankfully is not itchy because it sure does look it 😦 Her appetite has returned but she’s still a little fussy and clingy calling for tons of mama snuggles this weekend.
Here’s a picture before the rash spread to her face, of her face-timing with grandma.
Thanks for stopping by, and hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday 🙂
