Welcome Fall

Happy First Day of Fall! It's still crazy hot here in Texas but I sure am looking forward to crisp, cool Fall air, pumpkin flavored everything, cozy sweaters, morning coffee runs, fall decor and football!

There are so many fun fall activities coming up and I'm hoping to add a couple to my calendar. Every year we take Avi to the Pumpkin Patch at Dewberry Farm and I'm so excited to take BOTH my girls this year! I'm also hoping make some yummy fall recipes including this delicious Autumn salad. We are huge donut lovers in this household and I thought these pumpkin doughnuts would be fun to make.

I'm also excited for Fall fashion! I've been looking for a wedge bootie because I figured they would be more ideal with two littles in tow. I love these and these. And call me crazy but I'm kinda diggin these Ugg sneakers. They will be perfect for our upcoming trip to Colorado. I'm all about that comfy mama style lately! Cutest little toddler version here.

Anyways, I just wanted to leave you with a little fall inspo. Most of these photos are from my Instagram (@marssaunders).

Hope you are having a wonderful first day of fall, so many exciting things to come!

Lace It Up

Sweater: HM (sold out, similar, similar) | Shorts: Gap | Booties: Vince Camuto | Ring: BabubleBar | Handbag: Louis Vuitton | Lip Color: Rebel by MAC

Fall is only one day away and I couldn't be more excited! Have you ladies had your first pumpkin spice latte yet? It's still ridiculously hot here in Texas so I can't get myself to order one. I could get it iced but it just isn't the same if you ask me.

Anyways, on to today's outfit...

I wanted to style this lace up sweater in a way that could be worn in warmer temps. I paired it with an old pair of cut off shorts and a cute pair of booties. I can't wait to wear this sweater again once we get cooler weather. I think it would be cute paired with distressed denim and booties or tucked into a skirt with some over the knee boots. I love investing in basic sweaters for fall because there are so many different ways you can style them.

Hope you all are having a wonderful week. Thank you so much for stopping by!

First Month Baby Favorites

Isabella is already 2 months so I'm a little behind but I thought I would go ahead and post this anyway. I did monthly baby favorites during Aviana's first year and you all really seemed to like them. Today I am sharing baby Bella's first month baby favorites. There are so many new and great products right now. It's crazy how much baby products can change in just 4 years! Stay tuned as I will be sharing our 2 month favorites next week!

Aden & Anais Bibs - I used these bibs when Aviana was a baby and I decided to repurchase them because I loved them so much. They can easly be thrown over your should and used as a burp cloth, or you can also use them as a regular bib for solid food feedings. I have always been a fan of Aden & Anais products and they have the cutest prints!

Como Tomo Bottles - I am so glad I discovered these bottles! I did a ton of research before purchasing bottles and decided to go with the Como Tomo ones. I am nursing but I mostly give Isabella pumped breast milk. The nipple on this bottle resembles a breast nipple so Bella took to them easily. I love the design of this bottle and the wide mouth makes for super easy cleaning.

Wubbanub Pacifier - Bella loves this pacifier! It's so cute and comes in many different styles.

Fisher-Price Play Gym - Bella absolutely loves this! It's perfect for tummy time and the hanging toys keep her entertained for a while. Right now she just kicks the piano but I think she will really enjoy it once she is able to sit up.

Halo Bassinest - Okay, this has to be my most favorite baby product! I seriously wish I had this bassinet when Aviana was a baby. I love it so much that I bought 2! One for our Houston home and one for the lake house. This product allows me to sleep right next to my baby without the risks of co-sleeping. I love that it comes right up next to the bed and can swivel around. It also makes late night feedings so much easier! I could go on and on about this product. It is a MUST have!

Floral Dress

Dress: Forever 21 | Necklace: Anthropologie | Ring: BP | Booties: Vince Camuto (similar, similar) | Lips: Rebel by MAC with Venom Lip Pencil by Urban Decay

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I'm here in Houston visiting family and it feels so good to be back home. I had my first dinner date with both girls on Friday and it surprisingly went really well. I was a little nervous taking the girls out to somewhat of a "fancy" dinner because I was worried about them getting restless. Aviana has become quite the little lady and sat in her chair for the entire three course meal. Bella slept for about 15 minutes and sat in my lap for the rest. I'm starting to get used to this eating with one hand thing again! She got a little fussy once dessert came so we scarfed down our Budino di Limone in 5 seconds and left. Overall, I think both girls did wonderful and it was nice to finally get dressed up and out of the house.

Anyways, today I wanted to share this pretty little floral number with you. Fall florals are my absolute favorite and I just love the burgundy color of this dress! Plus, for $23 this dress is a steal! I ordered these booties during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and have been wearing them with almost everything! They are sold out in most sizes but I found similar ones here and here. I also wear these peep toe booties pretty often and they are so comfy!

Berry lips are my go-to color of choice for fall and my favorite is Rebel by MAC. I have been wearing this color for years and I use the Venom lip pencil by Urban Decay to line my lips. You will probably see me rocking this lip combo for the next couple of months. Can you believe fall is officially in 3 days!!!

Trending - Bomber Jackets

{scroll and click on image above for details}

Bomber jackets are so hot right now and have taken over the fashion world. There are a variety of options available and I love how easy they are to wear. You can pair a bomber jacket with jeans or joggers, or even over a sexy dress. You can also style one with strappy heels, booties, or a pair of sneakers. It is such a versatile piece and a must-have for your fall wardrobe. I recently purchased this olive colored bomber (similar and only $35!), this blush pink one, and this embroidered one (under $60). I cannot wait to wear these once the weather permits!
