Sweater Skirt Set with StyleWe

Once again Friday has arrived and we are all feeling a little bit of pep in our step around the Sandberg home. With the Cubs in the World Series I can’t help but feel the excitement in the air all around me. Admittedly I’m not a huge baseball fan, I will go to a game with the hubs who is a lifelong Cubs die-hard, but for me it is more for the socializing than anything else (plus who doesn’t love getting dressed up in cute sports gear? haha). Funny story – when Tom and I first started dating, he told me he was related to former Cubs all-star player Ryne Sandberg – it was his second cousin twice removed who stopped talking to the family after he got famous. I’m not sure if he was trying to impress me, because I had no clue who the guy was, but I didn’t think too much about it until many years later, when his name came up in conversation, I brought up the fact to a friend of ours, and T had to come clean and say he was joking. It is actually funny to think of all the things we do and say when we are trying to impress someone, but how quickly all of that stops once he puts a ring on it! It goes both ways too, girls you know we unleash the crazy only after we know he isn’t going anywhere!

About the look, today I’m partnering with online retailer StyleWe – they work with many independent designers for a really eclectic and well curated selection of clothes and accessories. I love that they give a platform for creatives to sell their designs on a large scale. If you are looking for high quality designs at a reasonable price point, I highly suggest checking out their website. Seriously when I was choosing what I wanted, I had the hardest time because there were so many pieces I liked. I ended up going with this two piece sweater and skirt set because I love the cozy feel, the gorgeous Autumn-appropriate color, and the fact that it is one size fits all. The skirt can actually be worn longer or shorter depending on how high you decide to wear the waist. I’d wear this styled with loafers as I’ve done here for brunch with friends, or dressed up with a statement necklace, long jacket, and mid-calf boots for an evening out.

Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend xxmaternity-style-denim-jacket-sweater-janessa-leone-hat

Last week we took a quick trip to escape the snow for some sunshine in Key Largo, Florida☀️ We spent every moment possible outside, Tom and Adam got their Scuba Diver PADI certification (yay!) while Sophia and I spent our days either swimming or drawing marine life and landscapes. This was my first trip after my sister passed last November, and even though I look so happy here, there were so many moments I felt the grief and sadness, as if it happened just yesterday. I am still figuring out how I want to show up in this space, as I have changed so much as a person since the loss. I just don’t feel called to post some of the things I shared before. Maybe that will change someday, or maybe it will just naturally evolve into something new. I think I will take this year to just process it all. (Even the idea of taking an entire year to think through something is a huge shift for my usually hyperactive type A personality) My focus at the moment is just living in the moment with my family and friends, spending time doing things that make me happy and healthy. I hope to share some of that journey here with you ~ thanks for following along ❤️
I had planned to shoot this outfit in collaboration with @lenacoutureofficial right before my dear sister passed away. Saba, the designer, was more than understanding if I didn’t want to anymore - but after thinking on it for a while I decided I wanted to - in my sister’s honor 💗 She was always my biggest hype woman. When i would feel like I’m not good enough or that I should quit (which was often) she would tell me I was unique and great and to keep it up. When I think of my sister, beauty and love is all that she embodied in her being. She expressed that on the outside also - as she loved to wear everything glam, bright & colorful, and full of bling. Hair done, nails done, everything did - that was Nusrat. For this shoot I took the time to get glam after a long hiatus - and makeup and hair took so long because I think I forgot how to do it, but afterwards I was surprised how I felt transformed. When I wore this gorgeous outfit that I know was designed with such love and incredible attention to detail by @lenacoutureofficial, I felt all of that beauty - like a walking piece of art, and very much at peace. Thank you so much to @divmophoto for capturing the feeling so well 💕
Ski weekend with my favorites ❄️❄️ So proud of Sophia for skiing on her own for the first time!
There are some trees with seeds that only grow after a fire. Their seeds are completely sealed with a resin that have to be physically melted off by a great fire in order to propagate. So to do we as humans, gain wisdom only after great pain and suffering.*
A month ago (and one day) I lost my sister and best friend to cancer. I am still completely gutted and broken. But, I’m also so so grateful to have had felt the love that now brings me so much heartbreak. ❤️ I am so inspired by her - and I will forever live my life to honor her memory. Miss you sis ❤️

Cozy for a coffee date ☕️
French. Toast. Egg. Bake. Save this recipe for a weekend or holiday brunch - it’s SO good and fool-proof! I’m not even a sweet person and I love it. The pecans are a non-negotiable IMO - I get honey bourbon vanilla pecans for this and it is just heavenly. Enjoy!
