BLOUSE: Equipment (also obsessed with this floral one and this black and white one) // DISTRESSED JEANS: Shopbop // HEELS: Manolo Blahnik // SUNGLASSES: Ray Ban // CLUTCH: Clare V. (also wanting this one!)

I have literally ALWAYS wanted a pair of Manolo heels.. this pair, here, is my absolute dream pair. My friend Christine and I were shopping and she spotted these ones I am wearing and I was totally jealous when she got them so when I saw them on major sale (60% off) and saw they were available in my size, I had a major panic attack (the good kind) and had to copy her and get them!! The color is just perfect.

I also stinking love anything made by Equipment. I love the quality of all the pieces, when you wear them you can tell you are wearing something nice.. which is important to me when I am paying more for an article of clothing. Plus they have some of the best prints.

AND HOLY CRAP YOU GUYS WE MOVE ACROSS THE COUNTRY TOMORROW OMMMGGG. I am freaking out/so excited/have butterflies. Check back tomorrow to see where we are going/why we are going/probably a lot of rambling because my nerves are going crrazzzy. LOVE YOU GUYS!

Walks with my Loves

Barefoot BlondeBarefoot BlondeBarefoot BlondeBarefoot BlondeBarefoot BlondeBarefoot BlondeBarefoot BlondeBarefoot BlondeTOP: Leith // SHORTS: Hudson (also love these) // SANDALS: Sam Edelman (last season: love these on sale and these) // STROLLER: Stokke Xplory // CARSEAT: Maxi Cosi // SUNGLASSES: Ray Ban // DIAPER BAG:  Mia Bossi

It has been a crazy weekend, both me and David have been sick (its a miracle that Atticus hasn’t also gotten sick) and we have been packing, packing, packing! So it was nice to actually get dressed and go out for a walk with my boys after a few days of no make up and working non stop. I have also been dying to try out A’s new carseat. We previously had the Graco Snugride.. I got it because it was so lightweight but ended up hating it because the material would make him sweat soo bad and he would get so uncomfortable. So I did some research and we ended up getting this Maxi Cosi one and I already love it SO MUCH MORE!

I also got a bunch of these long shorts.. I usually cannot stand long shorts and feel anything but cute in them, but I found these Hudson ones and as soon as I wore them once I went back online and got them in gray and black as well. They are the only ones I have found that flatter my body and that I can still feel cute in.

PS I wanted to share this video I made with SheKnows and Q-tips showing how I use Q-tips Precision tips to perfect my eyeliner :) Check it out here! xo

SWEATER: French Connection (on sale!!) // JEANS: Rag & Bone (on sale!!) // SUNGLASSES: Ray Ban // A’s BLANKET: Nordstrom // A’s BEANIE: Slouch Headwear // DIAPER BAG: Petunia Pickle Bottom // LIPSTICK: MAC ‘Coral Bliss’ // NECKLACE: Nordstrom (on sale!!)

Yesterday it was super cloudy and so me and my family took full advantage of those clouds and headed down to our favorite spot in Utah. Usually it is super crowded so we love to go when its not ideal weather, plus clouds are great for baby :) We brought our NatureBox snacks that we just got in the mail to munch on.. this was my first time getting a NatureBox package and I am obsessed to say the least! You can sign up for a monthly subscription service where you can pick from over 100 healthy snacks (that don’t taste healthy, they are seriously delicious) and have them delivered to your doorstep. It is perfect for me and my family because my husband always needs snacks for work and I love to snack when I am on the go, which feels like always. And sadly I am kind of lazy so grab and go is totally my thing! Its also nice because they have snacks for a variety of dietary preferences and since I have started breastfeeding I have had to cut out a few foods! My favorites from NatureBox so far have been the South Pacific Plantains and the Black and White granola (sooo good with vanilla almond milk over top!)

I am doing a giveaway with Nature Box and two winners will win a SIX month subsciption to NatureBox! Yes kind of awesome. To enter just head on over to the NatureBox website and check out all the snacks they have and then comment back here to let me know which ones you would like to try! (if your comment doesn’t show up right away its because sometimes they get put in the moderated folder for some reason, I check it throughout the day so it will show up when I approve it!)

NatureBox is also offering 50% off your first deluxe box or $10 off your first box with your first prepaid subscription with code BAREFOOTBLONDE

Good luck!! Have a good day! xo

Hippie Braids

Barefoot BlondeThis has been a total go to hairstyle for me this summer (I am sure you can tell if you follow my insta!), especially since it is SO quick and easy to do. Maybe it is just me but I think it kind of gives off a hippie vibe which I love. I first wore it in San Francisco in this instagram, and have since gotten lots of requests for a tutorial, but honestly it doesn’t need a video tutorial because of how easy it is so I decided to do a simple hair how to! Here are the steps..

1. Take a section from either side (your good side :) ) and do a basic braid starting about two inches from the front of your hairline.

2. Take the section of hair in front of the braid and an equal section from the other side and pin it in back of your head.

3. Take the excess hair from the sections that you just pinned and braid that as well.

4. To hold this look all day, finish with TRESemmè TRES Two Extra Hold Hairspray and you are done!
