February Haul + Breakfast Bagel Strata Recipe

The very last item I picked up from H&M that broke the buy and return cycle was a $2 striped tee that I thought would be a nice basic to have - I can't wait until the day I can have a bigger closet so I can actually see all the pieces I own - I might end up finding a few more basic stripes tees but when I picked it up, I didn't think I had one. :) I was browsing Insta Stories and came across some cute Target finds so made a large purchase at 3AM when I was up from baby B: Left: Denim Trucker Jacket in XS Light Acid Wash .

December Haul + Baked Fish Fillets Recipe

I didn't shop much the month of December except for a Target coat that caught my eye, two A&F sweaters, and a bunch of blazers and pants that were on crazy sale when I popped into H&M one day. I can never resist a blazer that fits and hope to be able to put them to good use later this year. A surprised me on Christmas with a cute pink pair of UGG booties that are much cuter on than the traditional shape. I didn't purchase them but thought they deserved a spot here. :) Left to right: Flannel shirt , Tie-Dye Hoodie , Chenille Sweater , Puff-Sleeve Sweater , all XXS.

This Patagonia girls down parka caught my eye on a Nordstrom ad and I ordered it on a whim to try but when it arrived, my mom liked it and claimed it for herself. :D I really like how lightweig
