Who takes all of your photos? My husband takes a lot of my photos and was my photographer when I first started. Now I have another photographer I use on a regular basis. But I still love having Michael shoot me!
What self-tanner do you use? I shared all my favorite products and tips for the perfect sunless tan in a blog post here.
What’s your advice for new bloggers? You don’t grow overnight, this takes time. Make sure you are able to post consistently and include high quality images before you decide to start blogging seriously. Make sure to network yourself, by visiting other blogs and commenting. Use trending hashtags that are relevant on instagram and twitter. Blogging is very fun, but a lot of hard work and dedication. Good things don’t come easy, ever!

How can you grow your instagram?
Take high quality, well lit photos and post consistently. Tag brands you are wearing on instagram for a possible feature/regram. Use relevant hashtags and post at peak times of the day. Instagram now has analytics that show you what times have the best engagement from your audience.
What instagram filters do you use?
To edit photos taken on my phone, I use Afterlight, VSCO and Snapseed are all my favorites.
Trends come and go, but the versatility of the classic button-down is endless. My go-to is my simple striped button from the Blue Shirt Shop. It can be dressed down or dressed up; it can be knotted or tucked into my favorite pair of jeans; styled with a pair of relaxed sneakers; paired with a skirt; the list can go on.
My obvious (go-to) pairing is with a pair of jeans. This Instasculpt Skinny Jean by DL Denim are a favorite pair of mine as of late. With my growing bump, I am still fitting into my jeans, but this pair is most comfortable. I love the stretch and zipper detail. The ankle length make them great for wearing with sneakers, booties and pumps.
MORE DL 1961 FAVORITES
In collaboration with DL 1961. All opinions are my own.
Fall is in full swing! The cooler temps, the leaves and all my cozy sweaters are in full rotation. One of my favorite things about Fall (amongst many) is getting to wear boots and booties. With so many to choose from, I wanted to make it easy and narrow it down to a few styles that will take you through Fall looking and feeling your best. I personally love to go for more casual look with a suede bootie or OTK suede boot. See more of my go-to styles below!
These Dolce Vita OTK are a favorite of mine from last year. I found an almost identical pair here. They have been on repeat as of late. They go with so much and are so comfortable.
A classic rain boot, like the Hunter boots or this pair under $100 are essential. I wear the rain boots all year round. This year I just got a pair of Sorel boots and love how cute they make a snow boot look!
Peep toe booties are another favorite of mine. This pair has been on repeat and now finally on sale! They are the perfect transition shoe and look great with dresses, boyfriend jeans, really anything!
Pretty obsessed with all of these embellished boots. I just got this pair of Chloe boots (complete splurge) I had been eyeing them for over a year now. This Gucci pair is also pretty amazing!
A fall classic. A suede neutral bootie you cannot go wrong. A shoe that will take you right through fall.
One item that you can’t have enough in your wardrobe this season is a great fall sweater. I can’t get enough of off-the-shoulder style. They are so comfy, while still looking chic. They are easy to style for any occasion. My go-to look is pairing with distressed denim and a bootie or OTK boot. I love this pretty blush color because it pairs so well with the warmer autumn neutrals. Wear it off the shoulder to show a little skin or you can wear it as a cowl neck for a more conservative look.
This dress has been a favorite find of mine. I love the flattering ruching that highlights my curves and even my growing bump. It is super comfortable and only $59! I just ordered one in black and plan on wearing post baby since it will do a good job of hiding the bump with the flattering fit and criss-cross detail. It looks great layered with a cozy scarf or cardigan for the cooler fall days
