Favorite mini skirts

Hello Luvs! Today is a little cloudy and I am currently snuggled up in my favorite cardi writing this blog post. I have a candle burning and the whole combination has me so cozy and relaxed, it totally has me pining for FALL. I am sure it comes to no surprise to you that I LOVE me some fall. The PSL's, the leaves, the crips air, pumpkin flavored everything, football, cozy sweaters, the list goes on!!! 
So today I thought I would share one of my favorite pieces that I love wearing to transition into fall.... MINI skirts! I have four of my favorites here and I LOVE every one of them. My favorite way to wear them in the fall is with boots and booties. Honestly can not get cuter than that! I'll give you the link to each one above each picture. PS I am also getting my blogging space all cute and decorated for fall so I will be sharing that soon so keep an eye out!

1. Snakeskin mini  Gah I am deathly afraid of snakes, but for some reason love the pattern. Go figure! lol
 2. Ruffle mini skirt This mini skirt makes me feel so cute and flirty! And it's only $35!
 3. Suede tie front mini This suede mini, screams fall to me! I am so digging the color and the tie on the front is the cutest detail!
 4. Leopard mini Leopard is totally in this season (but like when was it ever out?! I've had a leopard cover on my lap top for YEARS!) so when I found this mini I swooped it right up! It's selling out quick so don't wait to grab one!

Everything a carpool mama needs

It's getting to be that time of year when we will be shuttling our kids around non stop to school, sporting events, and other activities. So I thought I would come up with a list of things that would help prepare you for all that car time! Ps these would also work if you aren't a jutting around parent! These would be great for that work commute as well!

1. Portable humidifier I absolutely love having a portable humidifier in the car! We are headed towards dryer weather and it is so nice to get that extra moister in the air while on the go! PLUS you can add essential oils to this one and it makes the car smell AMAZING! Car freshners never seem to last long and this way is way better in my opinion, plus you get the health benefits of essential oils as well! 
2. Car garbage bag, and tissue holder The fight to keep the car clean is never ending but having a car garbage bag helps a TON! It also has a space for a wet wipe container on the side and kleenex which are things my kids are always asking for, so it's nice they can grab it themselves and then immediately throw away. 
3. Snacks You never know when the munchies will come along and it's such a good idea to have an option for everyone (including mama). For the kids I like to have these and these because they are healthy and have good protein!  For Holt, we keep these and these they have saved us, many a melt down! And so good for keeping him busy when we need him quite or distracted for a bit! For  Mama I love these bars or these only 1g of sugar! 
4. Travel blanket  oh this has saved our butts on many occasion, when we forgot to bring chairs or when it suddenly turned freezing! This one is amazing because it rolls up, and buckles for storage and it also has nylon backing so moisture can't seep through. A wet blanket is never fun!
5. First Aid kit We are constantly getting into this! The kids are always getting ouchies, and it's so nice being prepared with bandaids etc. 
6. 3 in 1 survival tool  This gives me great peace of mind! I have a huge fear of being trapped in a car in water and this tool breaks windows, lights fires and has a knife as well. 
7. Emergency kit This is another item that gives me peace of mind, it has jumper cables and poncho! They really have thought of everything!
8. Sunglasses organizer before I got these I was always struggling to find my sunglasses and these make grabbing a pair so handy and safe!
9. Movies ! I love keeping a couple movies on hand for our dvd player, we don't use it that often because I prefer encouraging communication with one another. But it's so nice in a pinch or on a long drive. Here's some of our favs! The greatest showman, The Incredibles, An american tail , and The secret life of pets  
10. Misc. Personal items, Hand sanitizer, Wet wipes, Lotion, Chapstick, Vaseline, and Sunscreen

$13 camo shirt dress

Full discloser, this is NOT the last post that I will be doing with camo! The obsession is real people! lol

I wanted to share this dress for several reasons. One of them being I didn't realize how hard it would be to find a camo shirt dress! The other ones I tried were either too tight or too short or cheap feeling or too expensive, are you catching a theme lol?! So when I found this dress, that checked all the boxes and was only $13 I flipped! I can't get over how perfect it is for the price! I bought a size medium because I was really paranoid about it being too tight. I really think a shirt dress is supposed to have a loose fit but I think I could have gotten away with a small as well. The other thing I really like is the actual camo pattern itself, it's faded, which to me makes it look that much more expensive. Haha looking back and can't believe Ive written so much about a $13 dress! But its amazing!
