My First outfit post in forever. I feel like getting this post done was a big accomplishment. I honesty don't know how we were able to get these pictures done. Yesterday I got locked out of the house with the two kids. Our garage door broke and I didn't have a key. Long story short Matt had to come home to let us in. So since he was home we thought we would attempt to shoot an outfit. So we loaded up both kids in the car. Well, as soon as we did it started thundering and the sky was really dark. 

But we were determined. So we drove in the opposite direction of the storm. Found a decent location, unloaded the kids and tried to get the pictures done before it started pouring. It was actually pretty funny. Andi was running around like crazy, Lincoln was in the stroller and Matt and I were just trying to get a couple of pictures. It was crazy and I am surprised we got a couple of good ones. And less than 10 minutes later we were back in the car!

Normally shooting an outfit is kind of a process and takes at least 15 minutes sometimes more just depending on different things. And I am a little OCD about the pictures so I always make it take longer. But with two kids there is not much time for that. So these pictures might not be the best that we have ever done. But thats ok. I am just happy to have a post up. This is my life and I wouldn't have it any other way. 

I love this striped t-shirt. And for $19 you can't beat it. I also got it in the solid white. It is just a great basic to have in my closet. I don't know why this leopard scarf isn't online but I found a few others that I love. A leopard scarf is a Fall staple in my opinion. And last but not least these booties are seriously perfect. There are just so many good pairs of open toe booties this year. These come in 3 colors and they might be my favorite pair so far!

Also, the Tory Burch Fall sale starts today! This is such a good sale. When you spend $250 you will get 30% off of your purchase! Just enter code FALL16 at checkout. I linked my favorites below. It is such a great time to get some great Fall items. I have two pairs of boots and they are my favorite. Happy shopping. 

Thank you all so much for reading and for all of your sweet comments from Mondays post. It means so much!

I know it has been So long since I have done a blog post! If you follow me on Snapchat (Jadealisonscott) then you already kind of know what has been going on. But today I just wanted to share my most recent Instagram pictures and give all of you a little update on life with two kids under two and what my future plans are for A Spoonful of Style. 

So Since my last blog post (over a month ago) I decided that I was going to take a break from the blog. Mainly because with two kids and no help (we don't live by our parents) accept from Matt of course it just really was not realistic of me to be able to get at least 3 posts up a week. The only time I really had to work on posts was at night and I can not keep my eyes open. I would fall asleep at my computer every night and then I would get upset with myself for not getting it done. So I decided it was best for me to just not put the pressure on myself and just accept that right now I can't blog and that is ok. 

So that is what I did. Also let me say that I love being home with my kids and I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to be. My kids come before anything and everything no matter what. But with that being said I personally think it is important as a wife and mother to still have something that I love doing. I don't want to completely loose myself. I feel it makes me a better wife and mother if I able able to keep doing something that I want to do and that makes me happy. Obviously it might not be exactly like it used to be and I am fine with that. 

Over the past month I have decided that I want to keep blogging. So today is my first day back. I planned on shooting some outfits this weekend but that didn't happen and that is Ok. But since it has been so long since I did a Instagram post I just thought I would start with that. 

I don't know exactly what blogging will look like for me in the future. For now I want to shoot for 2 to 3 posts a week. I am not going to set un realistic expectations for myself. Im just going to start slow and see how it goes. 

Since my life has changed so much (for the better) since I started A Spoonful of Style, I want to incorporate more of my daily life with two kids under two. So once a week or so I will be doing more of a lifestyle/mom post. It might just be my daily routine or some favorite products or even just what we have been up to. But I think it is important to share that part of my life as well. 

Fashion is the reason I started my blog and I still want that to be the main focus but I also want to add some other things. I am very excited to sort of re launch A Spoonful of Style. So within the next few weeks I am planning on doing just that. I am going to get a whole new blog design and kick this off with a really big giveaway for you guys as a way of saying thank you for all of the support through this journey! So be on the lookout for that. I don't have a date yet but it will be soon. 

Life with my family now that Lincoln is home, healthy and growing like a weed has truly been amazing! Don't get me wrong I have hard days where I just feel like I am doing everything wrong and I just want to give up. But no one said it would be easy but they did say it would be worth it! And it is. My life is crazy most of the time but I wouldn't change it. It has taken me some time to get into a routine but now that we have one things seem much easier. Lincoln is changing so much so I am sure our routine will change again soon! and that is ok. Sometimes it seems like as soon as I think I have some things figured out they change. 

Lincoln is almost 5 months old (3 month adjusted). I just can not believe it. He is huge! He is over 16 pounds which is bigger than Andi was at his age. He has totally caught up as far as size goes. We still have some work to do before he his caught up developmentally! But I am so proud of him. We are doing physical therapy and we are seeing huge improvements. 

Andi just loves him to death. The first thing she says in the morning when we go to get her is Lincoln. It seriously melts my heart. She is the best big sister! I just feel so incredibly lucky to have two thriving healthy children. I feel like the luckiest person in the world. 

Thank you all so much for all of the support! I can't wait to start blogging again! I have missed it. So I am really looking forward to it.

Ok I really LOVE this tunic. It is perfect for Fall. I love the oversized fit and the fact that it has pockets! I ma wearing extra small. It also comes in one other color. I can not wait to wear this in the Fall.

Also I am in love with my new Steve Madden shoes. I can't stop wearing them. They sold out so quickly during the Nordstrom sale but I was so happy when I found them! They go with everything and are great for transitioning into Fall. 

Thanks so much fro stopping by. Sorry about the lack of posts lately! There will be a huge Instagram roundup coming this week! But we appreciate all of your support so much.

Lace Midi Dress...

Dress: Wayf (wearing xs) also love this and this, Shoes: Steve Madden (obsessed) also love these and these, Bag: Givenchy, Sunglasses: Karen Walker, Stroller: Nuna 

Finally a new blogpost! We took these pictures over the weekend but I have not had any time to get a post done. I always think I will be able to do them at night when the kids are sleeping but I can never stay awake! I fall asleep mid post! It is a problem. 

I really want to get back into posting 3 to 4 times a week. I am just still trying to figure out having two kids under two and still being able to get some work done without any help. Other than Matt of course. We just don't have any family help, both of our parents don't live by us. So that makes things a little bit more difficult for me. But I do plan on really trying to get back into a blogging routine. 

Anyway, Like I said I wore this dress over the weekend and I love it so much. It is so flattering and I pretty much love anything that is lace. I also just got these shoes. I love the chunky heel and the fact that they go with everything. 

Thanks for stopping by...
