Although the weather may say differently, it’s fall, people. That means velvet season is upon us and while this 90’s trend technically never left, this year it’s seeing a major resurgence. From shoes and handbags to stylish toppers, velvet is the texture of the season! So get your online carts ready because you’re sure to want these luxurious-looking pieces in your closet, like yesterday.

It’s mid-October which means we’re knee deep in pumpkin spice everything. From lattes to beauty products, it seems everything is inspired by the seasonal gourd, and it might be why I fell hard for this pumpkin-hue tunic from Old Navy. Its relaxed fit and longer hemline makes it easier to pair with leggings and boots, which is exactly how I wore it to go – you guessed it – pumpkin picking! I loved how everything is synonymous with fall in this look, from the scarf to boots. I think everything tied together beautifully. Hope you lovelies have a great week!

Tween years are the hardest. Our daughters turn from sweet toddlers to moody tween girls overnight. But who can blame them? Navigating through fluctuating hormones, peer pressure, and Common Core, (AKA the bane of my existence), is hard work. It’s also around the time outside influences like social media and mainstream media start playing a role in their day-to-day life, and they start to question if they’re good enough, pretty enough, or popular enough. Not to mention the growing epidemic of online and school bullying they have to deal with. All these pressing concerns led my husband and I to enroll our shy 11 year old daughter in Taekwondo.

In our society today it can be very difficult to find the right prom dress that will not give your daughter the wrong impression. Too many believe that looking sexy or fashionable is to show just as much skin as possible. This can be a huge nightmare for parents that want to instill certain morals or to follow their faith and have their daughter wear modest clothes. This is often a problem throughout the entire school year when you find yourself going shopping at local retail clothing outlets. Of course, your own daughter may not realize that wearing the clothes like the other girls in school that is popular may not be the proper clothing for a young lady to wear.
