Mommy + Me Dresses that Give Back




*This post has been sponsored by Carissa Miss, all opinions are my own. Post contains affiliate links.*

Y'all know how much I love a good dress, and a good dress with pockets is even better! This dress is the Cynthia Dress from Carissa Miss. I picked it in grey because I thought it would be the most neutral for me to wear in fall or spring, but I absolutely love this floral one, too! One of my favorite things about Carissa Miss isn't the cute clothes (even though she makes adorable dresses for little girls, too!), or even the fact that she customizes dresses for nursing mamas, it's that she gives back. 100% of proceeds from sales at Carissa Miss go to funding the National Footsteps for Fertility Grant, helping women and families suffering through infertility. I am so entirely blessed with the two sweet children I have, and since infertility is something that has touched many of those close to me, I just knew I had to share this shop with y'all.




It finally warmed up a little for us, so I decided to rock my favorite pink Kendra Scott necklace and a bold pink lip for some pops of color. I think it would be super cute with a bright scarf and statement earrings in the spring, or with a quilted vest and booties next fall! And I did decide to get Lucy a little dress, too, because this mint/teal color looks adorable with her red hair and I know she'll wear it a ton this spring and summer. It's the Solid Jersey Twirl Dress in Spearmint. This dress is so well made and washes really well. I think I might even be able to get away with it next fall with leggings and a cardi since I sized up!



Can we talk about how cute her whole outfit is, though?! She loves dressing up and rocking as many accessories as possible. I'm so thankful that I was blessed with a girly-girl!




This sweet girl is the one that made me a mama, and my heart goes out to anyone suffering through that desperate need. Infertility is one of the most heartbreaking things a woman can go through, and I love that simply by buying myself and Lucy a cute new dress, I am able to not only support a small shop owner and her family, but also support the funding that these women going through infertility need to make their families complete.



You can learn more about the grant from Footsteps for Fertility HERE. Head to www.shopcarissamiss.com to find gorgeous dresses for you and your littles and give back to this wonderful foundation!


Do you or someone you know suffer from infertility? Let me know in the comments, I would love to pray for you!

Spring Nail Colors 2017


Hello & Happy Monday, y'all!

I had an easy breezy weekend and I'm starting my week off with a little Mani Monday inspiration for y'all! The temps dropped a little this week, but it still feels like winter is moving on so I'm antsy to break out all of my favorite spring colors! I feel like nail polish is a great first step if you're not quite ready to box up those sweaters. 

Below I've linked a few of my favorite shades this year:


Colors shown (from top left to bottom right): Sally Hansen Lacey Lilac, Essie Peak Show, Wet n Wild Yo Soy, Essie Cute as a Button, Revlon Romantique, Essie Castaway

A lot of pinks, I know, but is there really any better color for spring?? I absolutely adore the lightest shade, Peak Show, for pretty much all year. Light pink shades are a great girly neutral! The shade Castaway is probably better suited for summer, but I just can't stop myself from wearing it this spring. It's so bright and happy! I can't find Wet n Wild's Yo Soy anymore (check in stores, I think I got it at Walmart) but I linked a similar and super affordable nude shade that's perfect for everything from the office to date night. Essie's Cute as a Button is a pretty hot pink coral color that looks great with navy and white!








Here's a few examples of the colors on me! Now I just wish I had more time to sit and do my nails often!

Fave Five Friday | So Much Shopping

Hello, Friday!

Fevers have hit the Klee household this week. I'm so bummed that I missed my Girl's Night this week, but I got lots of snuggles from the hubs and Lucy so it made it all worth it! Let's jump into the things that were good this week!


5 // Before anyone got sick, Preston and I finally got the chance to celebrate Valentine's Day together. He took me out for some vintage shop browsing (one of our favorite things to do!) and a delicious dinner at a new restaurant near our house, Cork & Barrel. It was great and I loved having some solo time with my favorite guy.


4 // I finally had a chance to do another $10 at Target post this week! There were lots of goodies for me in this one, including a great eyeshadow palette for under $7!


3 // The weather has been amazing here this week! I jumped on the opportunity to break out my spring whites and chambray in a new OOTD post. Also on the blog this week: a Trend Spin post featuring lots of fun spring accessories! It was so fun co-hosting this link up with some lovely ladies!


2 // Can we talk about this Lilly Pulitzer jumpsuit? I'm sure you all remember the insanity that was the Lilly for Target sale. This Boom Boom jumpsuit was one of my BIG wishlist items and of course I never got my hands on it. I watched eBay and Poshmark forever and everyone always wanted upwards of $50....I just couldn't do it. But the Lilly Pulitzer angels smiled upon me last week when I scored this beauty for just $20 (+ Free Shipping)! I can't wait to rock it this summer!



1 // I also did some serious shopping damage this week for the littles....don't worry, it was all necessary, even this ADORABLE swimsuit I got for Lucy to go with her sun hat (aff.)....#swoon

So what are you all up to this weekend? If the weather keeps up, I'm thinking a trip to the zoo is in order!

Bright White Spring




Who else has been enjoying all this amazing warm weather?! It was almost 80 degrees the other day here in St Louis! I am loving the constant 60 degree temps and can't wait to break out all my spring and summer pieces.

But spring or not, this chambray top from Gordmans is a great year-round go-to. It's great layered under a sweater if your temps are still cool and on it's own when things start to warm up. I love pairing it with patterns and bold colors, too! You can easily dress down any look by throwing a chambray top unbuttoned or tying it off above the waist.





Y'all have probably seen enough of my hot pink Kendra Scott Rayne necklace I've been obsessed with lately. Don't worry, I snagged a white one in my latest Rocksbox that will even out the playing field! Haha.

Also, how gorgeous is this bag?! Yet another super affordable and on trend piece from Gordmans. It's been such a versatile bag and the light color is perfect for spring and summer.

Dots, Leopard, and Pops of Pink! | Trend Spin Link Up: Accessories

Happy Tuesday, y'all!

Today I am excited to be co-hosting the Trend Spin Link Up with Walking in Memphis in High Heels & The Fashion Canvas! They're two of my fave fashion bloggers, so be sure to check them out!







The theme this week was accessories, so I thought I'd rock my accessories in fun ways, outside the box. I love jewelry, bags, hats, etc. but with little ones, it's hard to wear anything that dangles or gets in the way. I love making statements with the things I'm already wearing, like polka dot denim and leopard loafers. Plus, who doesn't love a little pattern mixing?



I can't go long without bringing in at least a little pop of pink, so of course I brought back my Kendra Scott Rayne and paired it with a bold pink lip. I'm a firm believer that you can accessorize your entire look just with makeup!

So how do you accessorize? Do you layer on the jewelry and the extra pieces or are you more of a minimalist, like me?

$10 at Target | Pampering Pretties

Hi friends! Today I'm back with another $10 at Target challenge that is all about pampering! Lots of pretties for my makeup collection as well as treats for my vanity (coming soon!), so I'm super excited to have snagged them all for just $10!


Wet n Wild Color Icon Au Naturel Eyeshadow Palette (aff.) // This palette is from Wet n Wild's Au Naturel line of shadows and is in the shade "Nude Awakening". It was only $6.99 and I received 10% off with Cartwheel, so totally affordable! So far I am loving these shadows! I have done a super trendy peachy look that is perfect for spring and a more neutral berry/taupe look that I loved as well and both looks were easy to do. Everything blended well and generally had great pigmentation, especially for such a low price!



Lace Canister // This lace-look canister is from the good ol' dollar spot! And it really was just $1! I think it will make such a cute addition to my vanity (once that project is through). I can use it for brushes, lip liners, eyeliners, or just as a pencil cup on my desk later on!

Argan Oil Mask (aff.) / Primrose Mask (aff.) // I just love these little trial size type masks! They were $1 a piece on clearance so I snagged one of each to try out soon! I love a good face mask/bubble bath pamper session!


So with Cartwheel, that brought my total to $9.29 before tax; just under budget and I got quite a few new goodies to try out! I am really loving this palette and can't wait to put the lace cup to use!

What all did you score for under $10 at Target lately?

Fave Five Friday | Lots to Love

It's finally Friday!

Living with only one car and a hubby that works long hours every day makes the week go by sooo much slower. We aren't super obsessed with getting out of the house and generally spend 5-6 days a week at home anyway. But there's something about not being able to leave the house that makes it so much worse.

In an effort to be a positive person, here are 5 things I loved from this week in honor of Valentine's Day!


5 // These two are my heart and soul. They both have such sweet and happy personalities and rarely fuss. I'm so blessed to have such good babies and I love being their mama. As you can see, we did get out of the house this week for a grocery run and it was their first time sharing a double cart seat. They did great!


Yep, we still love Snapchat. Follow along @likehoneyblog!

 4 // Sorry, one two more because how cute are they?! Parker turns 10 months old next week....Lucy is looking more and more like a little girl every day. Someone stop time, my heart hurts!



3 // I said I was staying positive, so here is some happy news! Remember the Lilly for Target romper I finally snagged for Lucy on eBay for like $4?? I just scored the matching mommy sized one for me for just $20! *happy dance* Now let's just PRAY that it fits...

2 // I got my first pair of Lularoe leggings last week, too....let's just say sold. Sooo soft and buttery. I love how much stretch they have without looking yucky or unflattering on my thighs. Be sure to hit up my girl Lularoe Joni Bond for future sales and giveaways! She is the best and has a lot of good stuff coming up!

1 // Another new love this week: this new lip color from L'Oreal (aff.)! I am absolutely in love with this bright bold pink and just know I'm going to be rocking it all spring and summer! Stay tuned for a L'Oreal haul + review, soon!


I love sharing little highlights from my week...it makes me feel so blessed! Today my family is coming to stay for a couple days over the 3 day weekend! I can't wait to do some relaxing and shopping together. What are some things you're loving this week?
