.It's A Girl!!.

I'm SO excited to finally be able to announce that we are having a sweet baby girl!! You have no idea how excited and over the moon we really are. When we found out, I sobbed so hard, like the worst ugly cry, ever! The ultra sound tech asked Tyler "Is mom happy it's a girl?" because I was so emotional, I couldn't even get the words out! Of course we would have been blessed either way, but I was really praying for a baby girl. I thought, since I wanted one so bad, I wouldn't get one!! 

We were able to find out a couple weeks ago, the day I was 15 weeks along. There was no way I could wait until my doctor did the ultra sound at 21 weeks, so we went to a private 4D ultra sound location instead. It was the coolest experience and best day of our lives. We were able to have our family members in the room and we all found out together. It was a day I will never forget!! Since it was a Saturday, the first thing I told Tyler I wanted to do was go to the mall :) We spent the day shopping for all things pink, leopard, and polka dots! 

Without getting too mushy and emotional, I truly thought in my heart that I would never be able to get pregnant and carry a sweet baby. There was countless nights when saying my nightly prayers that I would ask God to please bless us with a baby one day. It's so surreal now to watch all my prayers unfold before my eyes. I am so excited for this journey and all the adventures before us. To top it off, I know Tyler is going to be the best dad. It's already so cute how he always gravitates towards my belly and talks to her. It really melts my heart! 

On a way less serious note, let's talk fashion...that's why I do have this blog, right?! :) One of the reasons it took a little longer than I wanted to announce to you guys the gender, was I couldn't find anything to wear in the reveal pictures!! I guess trying to shop for a pink dress in fall/winter isn't the easiest thing. I finally gave up and decided to go with a more festive, holiday look! Tis the season for red dresses! I really adore the way the different textures look against each other. I love lace & faux fur together! This is the perfect holiday party combo.

XOXO, Kayla

Happy Monday, loves! I'm really excited because it's finally the week of Thanksgiving! I can't wait for a day filled with family and delicious food! Thanksgiving means a lot me this year because I really feel like I have so much to be thankful for!  I'm also anxious for Thanksgiving to be here, so it's socially acceptable to listen to Christmas music 24/7 :) 

With the holidays upon us, my wardrobe has definitely started to reflect that. I am always trying to add touches of red, gold and anything festive. Of course, we all know, I LOVE anything and everything that has a bow on it. And really what's more festive than a giant red bow in your bun?! From the moment my bun bows arrived, I haven't been able to stop wearing them. I love that you can wear them in your hair, on your wrist, or even put them on your favorite tumbler or glass for a fun twist {see here}. They even look adorable displayed on my dresser with all my jewelry. If you can't tell, I'm a huge fan and think every gal needs at least one in their bow collection! {P.S. don't mind my crazy hair! We may not get snow or rain here in Southern California but we do get wind!!}

This weekend I got to visit Miss Match Boutique in Ocean Beach to play dress up. This is always something I look forward to. I know I went on and on about Miss Match in my last post, but seriously the owner, Tali, is the coolest and they have the best pieces. I couldn't help myself, I had to get another pair of their boots. I have never in my life seen such cute boots for under $50, it's unheard of! Oh and these leggings, I have been living in them. No joke, they are the best thing that has ever happened to my legs :) The inside is lined with a fuzzy material that feels like you are wrapped in your favorite blanket. I want a pair in every color!! If you are interested in either pieces give the girls a call {619-223-5500} and use the coupon code "Kayla20" for 20% off your entire purchase!! 

Lastly, tomorrow is FINALLY the day I get to share the gender of our little peanut with all of you!! I can't wait. Keeping it a secret has been the hardest thing!

XOXO, Kayla

.Printed Dress & Faux Fur.

Fall has finally decided to grace us with it's presence here in San Diego. It's about time, seeing that it's the middle of November! When the temps drop anywhere below 80, I always find myself reaching for faux fur; usually in the form of a vest. Last year was the first year I really decided to fully emerge myself in the trend. This year my love for all things faux fur continues to grow and I'm honestly madly in love! While I was shopping a few months back at my favorite San Diego boutique, Miss Match, I locked eyes on this gem & knew there was no way my fall/winter wardrobe would ever be complete without it. I couldn't have been more correct! This vest seriously is what fashion dreams are made of, complete with to love it! It goes with everything, but I can't help but die over how perfect it is paired with this dress. The dress is also from Miss Match and I have a confession, I've already worn it about 7 times! It's the perfect dress for any occasion. If you can't tell already, I'm pretty much beyond with Miss Match. I can't help it, the owner Tali has amazing taste and picks out the best pieces!

Another thing I just can't stop wearing is this custom name plate necklace from TAudrey {last seen here}. I'm a sucker for anything gold, personalized, and that can be layered with my other jewels. You can't wrong with their pieces. You can personalize their pieces for just about any occasion or anything special to you! Makes the perfect gift for your girlfriends! 

Baby Bump Update: So if you follow me on Instagram you may already know that this past weekend we got to find out the gender of our little peanut!! It was the BEST DAY of my life! I can't wait to share the news and all the lovely details with you very soon on the blog. 

XOXO, Kayla
