Back to School + J.Crew Faves + Fit Details

All of the kiddos went back to school on Monday!  The house was way too quiet.  I’ve just been so used to them being here, that it was hard not hearing their voices around the house.  Even when they were doing virtual I loved popping into their rooms and giving them a quick hug and kiss.

When their schools said they would allow more students to attend in-person, I ultimately decided to let them go.  I prayed a lot about it, but even with masks they really wanted to go back and see their teachers and friends.  Selfishly, I wanted them to stay with me, but after their first day, I was so glad to hear that they loved it!  My main reason for sending them back was that after a certain amount of weeks, if they chose to stay virtual, the would no longer have a teacher teaching them from their school, nor would the students in their virtual classroom stay the same.  I was just too worried about changing them around again and let them go back.

Loving their new Lilly Backpacks!  Blue // Pink

Wheeler – Going to a different school than her siblings this year – 6th grade!

Effie – 5th

Logan – 3rd

Vaughn – 2nd

Got the boys some long overdue haircuts.

Last week, my friend Natalie’s parents were in town, so I headed over to see them and then we went to a wine tasting at my friend Jennifer’s house.  Oh, how I wish my parents lived here, so they could’ve joined too!

It rained all day, so we were happy to finally get outside and enjoy the weather!  Wore this dress.

Wheeler survived her first week in middle school and really enjoyed it!

Over the weekend, it was cold enough to get a fire going, so we decided to have a cook-out.  Our fire pit is a little beaten up because a huge tree limb fell on it.  Hoping to get it fixed soon.

Loved getting to pull out my jacket, boots, jeans and wear my new scarf.

I know I say it all the time, but I absolutely LOVE this shirt.

Loved getting lots of tennis in this week, especially with the weather feeling so fall-like!

Ordered these new shorts in one of my favorite styles.  Love the stripe!  For fit, definitely size up!

Now that school is back, I’m having the best time style Effie’s hair each morning!

As promised, I’m sharing some of my favorite picks from J.Crew’s latest collection.  Effie’s dress is also on sale here.

Absolutely LOVE this top!  Fits true to size, wearing a small.

This top is a French terry sweatshirt material.  Love the pink!  I sized up to a medium for a looser fit.

Loving this lightweight sweater.  This color is such a great neutral.  Fits true to size.  Wearing a small.

This tissue turtleneck is fitted.  Would be great to wear under a sweater or vest.  Even a cute high-waisted skirt would look great with this!  For fit, definitely go up a size, if you’re between sizes.  Wearing a medium.

In love with this quilted jacket!  It’s a great weight for this time of year too.  I went with a medium instead of a small.  I loved the small too, but I wanted it to fit a little big in case I wanted to wear something thicker under it later on.  It’s currently on major sale with code: COZY.

Absolutely LOVE this dress!  It’s true to size.  Love that it’s more of a babydoll style and not fitted through the middle.  Wearing a small.

I also got these pajamas that I’m in LOVE with.  Can’t wait to wear them tonight!  For fit, I size up to a medium for a roomier fit.

I hope y’all have an awesome weekend!  It’s raining here today, but I’m hoping it clears out so we can get outdoors and enjoy this cooler weather again!  Also, I’ll post the rest of my J.Crew as my order continues to come in.  Can’t wait for my vest and new shoes to get here.
