Amazon Sweater Try On

Amazon Sweater Try On

It's sweater weather *inserts SNL skit*

I am all about the sweaters.
& obvs love the over-sized sweater trend.
butttt being mid-sized it's hard to find one that is:
1. Flattering 2. Doesn't make me look homeless
& most importantly WHAT is with every sweater being cropped right now?!

After some trial & error & annoying returns I found some amazing, flattering & great quality sweaters at great prices on amazon!

I broke down all the sweaters to shop, but also added everything at the end including shoes, hat ect.

I am calling it & saying this is best fall sweater!
The knit is so luxurious! The color & fit is perfect!
For whatever reason this didn't have a tag & I saw that in the reviews too!
From what I could tell, the back & front are the same. IDK hopefully I am not wearing it backwards. However, it looks pretty cute backwards if so! ha!

 I am all about the wide sleeve trend right now!
Since it's still so cold in the Midwest for the Spring I feel like this one would transition well into the Spring! & I love a piece that can do that! I also really love the neck on this!

How annoying am I saying every one of these are my favorite! But I think this one really is!
This one is truly over sized. I would size down. I like wearing this one off the shoulder!

I hate, hate that I can't find my exact sweater. But, I found this one that is very very similar! Its a waffle knit & the reviews were glowing!

This one is obviously not a fall sweater, but is from Amazon & what i will be lounging in all day!
I love this off the shoulder. It is for sure see through. I wore a tank under, but I saw someone on the reviews wear a bandeau & some one with just a sports bra & all were so cute!

Gifts for the Nutcracker ballet dancer in your life

Gifts for the Nutcracker ballet dancer in your life

Kennedy has been in the Nutcracker for a few years now! It is her, & the rest of the family's favorite time! We look forward to it every year!

If you have a dancer in your life that is in the Nutcracker, I am sure like it is to her, it's a very special time for them. The Nutcracker is a big deal in the ballet world. & for most dancers, it is for them too. Kennedy looks forward to it all year round. 

Every year we get Kennedy an actual nutcracker to celebrate her dancing in it. We like to get one that signifies what role she had that year if we can. But I also like to get her a little something else too. It is a lot of work to be in the production. Early into rehearsals, I might get her a sweatshirt to wear in, a bag, water bottle, or like this year some nutcracker scrunchies for her bun! It's always a hunt to find cute stuff, so I put together a fun list of things I loved that I think your dancer will too!

I broke everything down into categories, but everything is at the bottom to just click on & shop!

These are all so cute! If your dancer has a principal role, there are some role-specific tops too!
The "I can't I have Nutcracker" is in my cart!

These are fun little things to give!
Something for the LEGO lover or Barbie lover! I like the idea of giving a nutcracker ornament too & thought this precious moment one was so sweet.
Kennedy LOVES adult coloring books, she will love a nutcracker one! & I got the elf on the shelf nutcracker outfit for the day of performance! They will get a kick out of that! I am thinking of using the cookie cutters for sandwiches! 

Ya'll already know I love a themed jammie!
How can you choose they are all so cute!!
Love the ones with a matching doll gown!

These are the scrunchies I got for Kennedy! The socks are adorable! & love the jewelry! We got Kennedy a similar bracelet a couple years ago!

                   AT THE STUDIO                  
These are so great for taking to dance! The water bottles are so cute & I love the themed bag to take to rehearsals!

Kohls Mini Fall Try On

10:08 AM
If you're sleeping on Kohl's you are really missing out!
I am obsessed with their LC Lauren Conrad line. The jeans are AMAZING.
& their Sonoma brand is killing it this fall!
This is just a small try on with some things that I got in!
Everything is so comfy & fits so great!!

"AGAIN 20"

I have never done flannel really before! But I'm obsessed with it! I like it by itself but then I decided to add the cardi & I am obsessed with this whole outfit!

 I love the arm coverage on this top! I get self conscious of my arms, & it a great long sleeve to conceal them, then the ruffle adds so much fun to it! I'm ordering every print they have! It looks like this solid is sold out.

I bought this top in 3 different prints! The tie-dye is so trendy & it isn't too grateful dead! The fit is really relaxed & reminded me of the Disney spirit jerseys!

 If I had a dollar for every leopard cardi right now...I would buy more leopard cardis! LOL I love it & I generally do NOT do animal print! This is the softest & I love the leopard prints color & size! I am in the large here, & want to try a medium. I feel like it runs generous for sure!

Halloween Pajamas Round Up

10:11 PM
Ya'll know I am a sucker for holiday-themed clothes, but I have an extra weakness for holiday-themed pajamas! I love all of these, & I feel like with Halloween there is no gender-specific kind!

Back to School Unpack Happy with KidBox

I love subscription boxes & the girls love getting things in the mail!
KidBox is the perfect mixture of the two because it saving me from going to the store shopping with them, & they think it is the absolute coolest thing to get a whole box just for them! I mean, honestly, who doesn't like getting stuff in the mail? Kids think it is so special when they get something all for themselves! I love when they got these, they said "What?! It's for ME?!"

I am sure you have questions, so let's get to it!

So what is KidBox?

It is the first kids' personalized style box that provides parents with a convenient way to dress their kids in cool brands at significant savings -- by bringing them right to your door!

The whole brand is built on a mission to clothe 1 MILLION kids in need, with $17.3 million in clothing donated so far! For every box kept, they donate an item of clothing to a child in need through their partnership with Delivering Good. 

How does it work?

KidBox dresses ages 2-14 for boys & girls. Baby boxes include sizes 0-24 months. They carry 180+ name brands, like Puma, Jessica Simpson, 7 for all ManKind, Justice, Levis & More! We got some amazing things in our box, Kensley got Joes jeans, & Matilda Jane leggings! Kennedy got a pair of amazing silver shorts!

You take a fun quiz that helps figure out your kiddo's style!
Our quiz got the girl's style pretty spot on!
They wore their favorite pics from the boxes in these photos shown on this post!

I know what your thinking, I am not buying clothes I've never seen for my kid! Because I wouldn't do that either!

 KidBox is a try before you buy-service-- you don't pay anything until your 7-day home try-on period is up!
 Shipping is always free! *yasss*

 You can keep your entire box &  get all items at an amazing discount, & even if you buy only a few items from the box they are discounted too, just not as heavily as if you were to get them all!

Why everyone loves KidBox:

1. Obviously, their mission is incredible! It is so neat that doing something like this with your kiddo also is a teaching charitable lesson.
2. Convenience! Forget the hassle of the mall & stores. You get brand new, stylish outfits, catered to your kiddo right to your door!
3. Savings! Everyone has a budget. KidBox helps you get your favorite name brands, & find new brands to love for a discounted price! The average retail price is over $200 on a box of 6-7 items! So your savings are more than 50%!
 Speaking of savings I am so thrilled to share a code for your first box!

Family Travel Guide to Hershey / Harrisburg Pennsylvania

6:43 PM
Thank you so much to everyone who hosted our family during our trip & made this travel guide include all of the very best of the best for families to plan their trip! As always, all views & opinions are my own! Thank you for supporting my blog &  family!

Things to do, Where to Stay in Hershey / Harrisburg Pennsylvania

It has been a month since our trip to the Hershey area & I am thrilled to finally put together our family guide to the area!
Here you will find out things to do, where to stay & fun places to eat!

NOTE: You will notice some things mentioned are not located in the Hershey/Harrisburg area, however, we are still adding them to our guide because we feel they are worth going outside the area to visit!

Of course a trip to the "sweetest place on earth" is a must! There is something to do for everyone at an entire theme park, themed to candy!

          For our tips to visiting Hershey Park click HERE          

Yes, Hershey World & Hershey Park are two separate places although they are within walking distance of one another. We saw several people think their Hershey Park tickets got them into the Hershey World attractions. Don't be that guy! Here you can make your own chocolate bar, go on a chocolate tour, do a taste tasting & so much more! 

3. Take a trip in Hershey downtown & have a donut

Don't stay confined to the theme park area, travel into town! 
Take a look at these street lights?! Can you even?

Stop at Duck Donuts for a fun treat! They have a TON of different fun flavors, & you can even come up with your own! I got the maple, bacon & I HIGHLY recommend! This place was an experience on it's own! 

4. Stay at Hilton Harrisburg 

Hershey Park hotels are $$$. Do yourself a favor &  we booked at the Harrisburg Hilton and had an amazing family-friendly stay. We found that the rooms were extremely spacious for families & affordable. The hotel is about 13 miles from Hershey. So super close to Hershey attractions. But aside from that, it is attached to the Whitaker Center for Science & Arts, & walking distance to City Island & Capitol Complex. It has two restaurants within the hotel & its super close to other restaurants!  If you're lucky you can get a room with a view of the river!

     Book your stay HERE     

5. Zoo America

This zoo is amazing & all of its animals are from North America! It was so neat to not only see animals that are common for our area but also see animals that are common from other sides of the US.

This stop is in Easton, PA. A short drive from the Hershey/Harrisburg area & so worth the drive!
Make your own crayon, make lots of art & see the world's largest crayon!

America's only all-water cavern & wildlife park. This was the most amazing experience for our family! It is secluded back off the beaten path, & again a bit of a farther drive than anywhere else mentioned, but this truly is a MUST SEE. We hit it on the way home, & I recommend that to anyone else too. Or on your way into Hershey if you're coming from west of PA. Truly so amazing!
