Copycat Tuesday {Mommy Daughter Fashion}

The older she gets the harder it is to take pictures with her. You know when they get to that age where they would rather make goofy faces then a smile. Well we've officially gotten there. Luckily she said she would do this with me without a fight. I fear she gets it from her dad. Caleb was hamming it up he thought it was his photo shoot. Maybe I need to swap out kids.

Red Carpet Ready

I know the Golden Globes were a week ago. But the timing couldn't be more perfect. One of the perks in my opinion of being an Army wife is that we have military balls. I love dressing up and going out with my man in uniform for a nice dinner and dancing. {Even if he doesn't dance.} Here are my top faves from the Golden Globes. 

1. Drew Barrymore

I love her effortless style on the red carpet. This dress has so much motion without being too gaudy.

2. Mandy Moore

I love how polished and classy she looked. The navy color is so perfect for her hair color and complexion. Plus I love "This is us

3. Busy Phillips 

I LOVE, LOVE this dress! I cut, the silhouette, the embroidered flowers. This dress is just perfection!

 4. Anna Kendrick 

I love this dress. I love the gathered pleated look. It's very similar to my dress. I love how it's fitted in just the right places. It's so classy

 5. Emma Stone

I love Emma Stone. she really just can't go wrong. I love her choice seeing how she is nominated for "La La Land". This dress just screams "chase your dreams". Love the pale pink and silver again without being gaudy and ridiculous.

 6. Caitriona Balfe

While I'm not a huge fan of her dress. You can't argue with how classy she looks. She's so elegant and beautiful. The color, the makeup and the pulled back hair. She has her own style but she owns it and I love that. Plus I am a huge "Outlander" fan and she should've won!

This Friday is the ball and I already have my dress.I'm working on the shoes and jewelry. But I could use some help in the hair department. I can't decide between a few different looks. Comment with your choice below. 


Something like Michelle Williams hairstyle

Fashion Friday

I'm loving the velvet trend right now. I definitely rocked some velvet back in the day. It's always funny how trends get recycled over and over again. It makes it hard to ever get rid of anything because it might come back into style. I chose a neutral color so it could be paired with other bold items like this cardigan. I love mixing the textures together it makes the outfit that much more intriguing. Pair that with a different color bootie and you got magic. What's your favorite trend right now?

New Year, New Me

Photo by Andrea Kinnear Photography + Design
I've been working on a lot of changes for this year. I'm convinced 2017 will be even better than last year. While 2016 was pretty fantastic personally with celebrating anniversaries, birthdays and traveling. I'm focusing on what the new year has to offer. With that said.. 

Meadows and Reeds has gotten a face lift and I'm so excited!
I wanted to take this blog to the next level. It's been long overdue and the day is finally here.
Also you can now find me at

I hope you like the new changes it's only the beginning.

Cheers to 2017!

Conversations with an 8 year old

It's the beginning of a new chapter. We have now reached a new age and the things that come out of her mouth are getting funnier and funnier. 

{Talking about her day at school}
Riley: Steve won so we had to do medium and it was was my nightmare!
Mommy: Who's Steve? What are you talking about?
Riley: Minecraft

Mommy: Chocolate makes me happy!
Riley: Chocolate makes me crazy

{Hanging out with her uncle}

Uncle: Do you want to take the car over there or walk?
Riley: Walk! Walking is better than driving.

{Playing a new family game}

"Which school subject will be the most important in your life?"

Riley: Gym

"If there were no kids your age to play with would you rather hang out with the older or younger kids?"

Riley: Younger so I can be the boss.

"If you could go to the olympics in a sport which would you choose?"

Riley: Thumb wrestling

"What do children know more about than adults?"

Riley: Adverbs

Fashion Friday {Hippie chic}

It's Friday on the first week of the new year! How if everyone doing on the their new years resolutions? I definitely had a few this year. One of them was being more motivated. I'm definitely doing that a lot so far. Trying to consistently work out more through the week. Stay on top of my blogging. I'm pumped for 2017! How about you? 

Is it just me who's noticed? Target has really upped their game lately. They've been putting out some really cute stuff. Not just for women but kids clothes too. Usually it's hard to find cute boy clothes but I've been finding a lot lately. I think I might need to do a little Mommy fashion post soon to show you all the new digs! 

Have a great weekend!
