Before I get into today’s look, I just wanted to say how much I appreciate your feedback on my Real Talk post earlier this week. I try to always stay upbeat on Sunflowers and Stilettos and my social media channels [because no one likes a Debbie Downer], but at the same time, I need to be honest with you guys. So, thank you for allowing me to vent, speak my mind, and keep it real with you. It’s refreshing to hear that so many of you feel the exact same way and we’re all on this hustle [and tired] train together.

Today I’m sharing a very easy and comfortable outfit. This lace-up tee runs large, and I kinda regret not getting it in a size small. On the plus side, at least it will continue to fit the bump as my stomach grows! And boy is it growing!! The lace-up or criss-cross detail in the front is a fun spin on a basic tee. I wore it the other day with jeans and wedges for a simple casual chic look.

Speaking of wedges, you need this pair that’s on sale! They look just like the Marc Fisher ones for a fifth of the price! I realize summer is almost over and everyone is focused on fall fashion, BUT these will still be in style next year. AND, if you live in the South like me, you can get away with wearing wedges the majority of the year because it’s so freaking H-O-T!!

I’ve had these high waisted leggings for two years now. They run true to size and squeeze you in in all the right places, while still being comfortable. I love them so much, that I bought a second pair during the recent Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but got them one size up [in a medium]. A lot of my non-maternity leggings are starting to get uncomfortable on my stomach, and I also didn’t want to stretch out and ruin the pair I’ve had!

Lastly, I should point out that this diaper bag is not yet available to the public, however you can pre-order it. I reached out to Freshly Picked when I saw a Facebook advertisement about it, and they were kind enough to gift me one. A chic backpack that can be used as a diaper bag was not an easy thing to find, so I was beyond excited when I saw that ad.  This bag is seriously AMAZING, and can totally be used by anyone, regardless if you have kids or not. It also comes in a gorgeous butterscotch tan and stone grey. Of course I want them both in addition to the black one, because it’s absolutely necessary to own three leather backpacks. Obviously kidding.

Well friends, that is it for today. If you’re around tomorrow [Saturday], I’ll be doing an Instagram Live around 4 o’clock, talking about some favorite skincare and makeup products. Hope you’ll join in!

    The hustle train isn’t easy sometimes, especially when you’re trying to hustle extra hard and the hours just never seem to end. I love that top, and high waisted leggings are my jam!

    That tee is so great! The lace-up detail really makes it a unique tee and a great way to add something to a simple tee.

    Love the combo, Plus the shoes looks great. I am a big fan of Nike sneakers and I am always keen on pairing them up with leggings or jeans. You have created an awesome outdoor look which is instantly impressing. I would love to dress the same and go out. I am not sure how my Boyfriend will react to this but As it looks on you I am sure that he will be amazed.
