      What I Wore: Easter Lunch

      One of the highlights of my week is Sunday, when Ricki and I teach the four year old Life Group (basically Sunday School) at our church because I could be having the worst day but they instantly cheer me up. Hearing each of them say their weekly prayer requests, ask the most unanswerable questions about God ("Why doesn't he have a last name?" is a favorite), and especially seeing Ricki's faith grow as she pours into them each week makes my heart beyond happy.

      Now I know it seems a bit.. ok, a lot shallow to think about, but I have a hard time figuring out what to wear every Sunday! I have to be comfortable enough to be able to chase a room full of four year olds around, but also dressy enough to not look underdressed afterwards during the service. One positive to being as short as I am is that I learned how to not only walk, but also be comfortable in heels at a very early age. However, this past Sunday was an exception for even the most experienced girly girl. They put all of the kids classes in one room for the Easter services and there I was, trying to balance one kid on my hip but also play kitchen without stepping on any fingers. So, if you saw a girl walking to her car barefoot after church, it was me. I guess it's God's way of preparing me for the future :)

      We went to Tyler's parents house afterwards for lunch and there was no way I was wearing heels, so here's what I wore...  And as you can see from our picture, we all decided to do a quick wardrobe change!  What are your favorite ways to dress up but still be comfortable? (*Outfit details and links listed under the top picture!)


      I'm wearing the "Mindy" necklace from my collection and for some reason I haven't featured it much on the blog. Tassels are huge for spring and I get compliments on this one everywhere I go! Screenshot 2014-04-22 09.06.51

      Outfit Of The Day: April 17, 2014

      I just got back from a quick day trip to DC last night and was absolutely EXHAUSTED this morning. All I wanted to do was stay in my pajamas and write this blog from the comfort of my bed. Ever have one of those days? Well, being the over-committer that I am, I scheduled a meeting for this morning and unfortunately they wouldn't find my pajama pants as cute as I do. So today I'm sharing my secret for the most comfortable jeans you can buy without the shame of buying "Pajama Jeans" from an infomercial.

      Don't even try to say you haven't thought about it!

      The Hue Denim Leggings are my go to on days just like today; when you want to look like you put  effort into getting ready while still feeling like you're in your comfy clothes. I got them a few weeks ago and wish I had bought them in every color! And unlike normal leggings, since these have seams and pockets I think it's totally acceptable to wear them with shorter tops. I just cuffed mine at the bottom and they look exactly like my beloved Rag & Bone jeans that cut off my circulation!

      I'm also wearing the Sally earrings in howlite and the Carly necklace from my jewelry line because every girl knows jewelry is the easiest way to dress up any outfit! Go stock up on earrings at EmilyMaynard.com today because when you buy one pair you get a second 50% off! Just use the code BOGO50 at checkout and hurry because it only lasts until Sunday, April 20th at 11:59pm.

      What I Wore: 2nd Grade Class Zoo Trip

      Last week Ricki and I went to the Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia, SC with a few of her closest friends... and the entire 2nd grade. Just because I'm nervous one of her teachers will read this, I'm not going to tell you how worried I was that this trip would turn into a nightmare. But it was a lot.

      But really, wouldn't you??

      Well, to my surprise, we ended up having a great time and I'm so happy I went because we made some really wonderful memories! Chances are she won't remember the lions or the elephants, but maybe she'll look back and laugh at her mommy being too scared to feed the giraffes. To me, thats worth every bit of 2nd grade class trip craziness!

      Summer Shoes: Caged In

      To say I'm looking forward to (consistently) warm weather would be an understatement, but one thing I will miss about winter is all my boots that effortlessly dress up any outfit. I feel like in the summer I get in the routine of wearing the same sandals with pretty much everything. I don't have a  pair of neutral heels that I can wear with a lot but are also comfortable. So, I went on a search for the perfect, boot-like sandal that will dress up my summer wardrobe and this is what I found!

      And yes.. in my book, leopard is a neutral. At least it should be :)

      What are your go-to summer outfits? Please tell me I'm not the only one that wants to wear flats with everything! This year I'm determined to wear heels at least once a week in order to justify the ridiculous amount I have in my closet! (All the links to the shoes are listed under the pic above!)

      Meet The Newest Member Of Our Family: Nash Johnson

      One could say I have a lot going on right now.. planning a wedding, getting married, selling my house, buying a new house, running a blog, a jewelry line, on top of my everyday responsibilities of being a mom and everything I'm involved in through my community. Yikes. Don't get me wrong, every single one of those things are such a blessing and I'm so thankful that they're all "good stresses". However, adding another animal to our zoo was pretty much at the bottom of the to do list. I guess the saying, "when it rains, it pours" really is true!

      When I came home from church on Sunday Tyler surprised me with this sweet puppy that he found out in the middle of nowhere in South Carolina. My reaction was a mix of, "Have I been drugged? There's no way he's serious and there's actually a dog in my driveway," to "He's cute, but when are his owners going to be here to pick up him because he's not staying with us." His fur was matted with goodness knows what, you could see every bone in his body, and you could tell his poor paws were in bad shape as well. We would be a perfect foster family for him until we could find someone to take him!  Well, somewhere between giving him his first bowl of food, his first vet visit, and an (expensive) trip to Petsmart, we bonded. His monogrammed "Nash" bed will be here next week and we're officially WAY out numbered by animals, but (as I'm trying to remind myself daily!) what fun is life without a little bit of chaos? :)

      PS-- Does anyone have any guesses as to what kind of dog he could be? Anyone done the blood test that tells you? Let me know in the comments!

      In Honor of My Middle School Self



      Mudd Jeans



      Paul Frank

      If you're a child of the 90's I have no doubt you have fond memories of begging your mom for each of these brands, right?  I vividly remember wearing my Roxy cut offs, a Billabong shirt, and putting my hair in cornrows, finished off with butterfly clips and truly thinking I was Tiffany from "California Dreams".

      Just me? Ok then...

      Well in honor of my former, middle school self, I'm bringing back Billabong for today's blog post. But don't worry, I'll leave the cornrows and butterfly clips to Ricki. *Outfit details/links listed under the picture.

      What I Wore: Key West Edition

      Please tell me I'm not the only one that hates packing for trips. Whether it's a weekend away or in my case, a week in Key West, I always seem to have the biggest suitcase and still nothing to wear. However, it there's one thing The Bachelorette taught me it was how to pack and be prepared for anything.KeyWest2

      When I'm going to the beach I always pack some sort of jacket or sweater just in case it gets a little cold at night. Key West was absolutely beautiful, but when the wind picked up on the water I was glad I had my jean jacket! I'm also a huge fan of jumpsuits of any kind and this one is perfect for dressing up or down. For a more casual look just wear a printed undershirt or bralette for a pop of color. And last but not least, don't forget to pack your favorite jewelry! The Claire necklace from my line is perfect because I can wear it for a relaxed day walking around or a fancy dinner.

      What are some of your favorite packing tips? Leave them in the comments!

      Work It Out

      In my opinion, the gym is one of the last places on earth that you should have to worry about looking cute and goodness knows you don't want to be "That Girl" that has on a face full of makeup. (We've all seen her, right?) However, I need all the motivation I can get and if that means wearing a pair of floral leggings or a lace workout top, then so be it. Maybe that's what has been missing all of these years that I've gone to the gym and left feeling like I've been run over by a Mack truck?

      But if you ever see me working out with a full face of makeup, I give you full permission to make fun of me. Just let me have my cute workout clothes. Deal?

      Do you know of another website or store that has cute workout clothes? Let me know in the comments!
