DRESS: Maison Jules // HEELS: Valentino // BAG: Celine via Fashionphile

Well Atticus and I made it to NYC (I will get into that more tomorrow, haha) and kicked it off my going to the Maison Jules presentation! I wore this adorable Maison Jules dress that they gave me and love the lace detail! I absolutely adored all of the looks at the presentation .. it was like relaxed chic which is great for me since I love to be comfy but still put together. I also loved the sock + oxford combo they had going on! Definitely check out Maison Jules and all of their cute prints and pieces, you also can’t beat the price!

Upside Down Braided Bun

Barefoot BlondeTOP: LOFT // JEANS: LOFT

I have had a lot of requests for a how to for this look and so excited to finally do it! It is actually really easy, minus some blood rushing to your head haha :) but here are the steps..

1. Tip your head upside down and grab three strands and begin to do a Dutch braid (Dutch just means you cross the outside strand UNDER the middle strand instead of over like you would a French braid!)

2. Once you have your dutch braid, secure it with an elastic and then pull your hair into a pony and secure that with an elastic.

3. To get rid of any grease and to give your pony some volume and texture, spray TRESemmé Fresh Start Dry Shampoo and then wrap your hair into a messy bun and secure it.

4. To finish, you can pull apart your braid to make it appear thicker and spray with TRESemmé Tres Two Extra Hold Hairspray!

Hope you are all having a good weekend and don’t forget to check yesterday’s tutorial! See you Monday :)

*Thank you to TRESemmé for sponsoring this post

The Chunky French Fishtail Tutorial

I hope you guys aren’t sick of seeing pics of me and Atticus yet haha - I only have my husband for a little bit during the daylight for pictures so if Atticus is sleeping and hasn’t had a full nap I don’t like to put him in the carseat because he will wake up! Which is what happened the day we took these pictures so I just kept snugglin him and let him sleep :) This is pretty much what we do all day every day and Chauncey always joins in too, its pretty great. I love being in comfy jeans and a soft top – so these are perfect for lazy days. I love to be in sweats at home but I am way more productive if I spruce up a bit and get ready a little!

We are headed to NYC on Tuesday, I have some jobs out there during Fashion Week and so my friend is coming out with me for a few days, she hasn’t seen Atticus yet and was wanting to see him so it worked out perfect for her to come and hang out with us and watch him while I am away a few hours a day (that will be the longest I leave him and I am totally freaking out! I will probably cry haha) and then my sisters are coming out the second half of the trip! My sister Jamie has not gotten to meet A yet since she has been living in India, which I am so so proud of her for being brave and seeing the world and doing humanitarian work, but so excited for her to meet A finally!! It will be so much stinkin fun. I have to say though, as it gets closer I am getting ever so slightly nervous! Which brings me to my whole point in bringing this up, if any of you have any advice for traveling with littles in the city, let me know!! I am mainly nervous for taxis? Maybe its just better to do car services? And what do you do with the base of the car seat when going around the city? I have no idea - but any words of wisdom from you NYC/San Fran/London/big city mammas out there would be appreciated! I feel like any time I ask for advice you guys always give the best advice and I love reading all your comments XOXO

PS I HAVE A TUTORIAL! Yay! These always take me forever to get around to so I always feel slightly accomplished when I do one haha :) but this one is for the braid I am wearing in these photos. Watch it below, or click here. And be sure to subscribe to my channel, here!Barefoot Blonde

Fields of Yellow

So we took these in Colorado on our way to Alabama and I was actually devastated in these photos (okay not quite that dramatic but I was bummed) haha because I was soo excited to go through Colorado to see these sunflower fields.. they are HUGE fields with ginormous sunflowers like the fields in Provence, France and since I always miss them when I am in France I was so stinking excited to see them (they are by the airport for anyone wondering) so we drive out there and drive on dirt roads for a good 15-20 min and get there only to see a harvested sunflower filed :( what are the odds! Anyways, so I found these miniature sunflowers instead.. they don’t quite compare but they worked. Anyways so if any of you are ever in Colorado you should go! and I will live vicariously through you :)

Have a good day everyone! xo

Baby A Newborns

I know its a little late but I wanted to share some of Atticus’ newborn photos! These were taken when he was five days old and he already looks so much older but I still think its crazy how big he was as a newborn! He is such a chunk :)

He is 2.5 months now.. he’s laughing a lot, sleeping through the night, loves to watch Baby Mozart in his Bumbo seat and will crack up the entire time, he weighs 15 pounds, loves standing up (with my help for balance, obviously), he’s obsessed with bath time.. we take a bath together every night and he will just float and splash and thinks its the greatest thing, still isn’t sure how he feels about Chauncey, kicks like crazy, finds his feet hilarious, still loves his swing, and makes the cutest sad face when he is upset.

Sure do love this boy!! xo

PS I have emailed the Nature Box winners, Kelsey and Jamie (sorry I didn’t announce that earlier!)
