SKIRT: Forever 21
HAT: Old Navy
I am SO excited to share my favorite café in Costa Mesa with y’all!!! I have been walking to this place since we moved out here. It is SO close to our house and it is what originally got me to go. After the first time I went, I was seriously there at least once a week haha. When my mom came to stay with us during the last three weeks of my pregnancy, we must have walked to Turnip Rose Cafe everyday!!
The atmosphere is to die for!! Talk about the perfect spot to get those “Instagram worthy” shots!! The inside and the outside are both adorable. The courtyard is so dreamy and even has a cute little fountain that Jack is obsessed with. The best part about this café though is their AMAZING food and drinks! My favorite thing that I order way too often is the California Panini. It is so tasty and SO fresh. My all-time favorite.
During this visit to Turnip Rose we decided to switch it up. We started off with a mimosa and sangria! I love that this café serves alcohol lol. Every now and then mom and dad need a little pick-me-up haha. Both drinks were SO tasty!!! Next, we had the broccoli cheddar soup with their legendary zucchini bread. I know that may sound weird, but it is seriously SO tasty. Jack was eating it up so fast and little did he know it was filled with veggies!
For our main courses I got the Cantina Shrimp Salad and Tyler got the Tuna Laguna! Both were seriously amazing!! I kept stealing bites of Ty’s sandwich and Jackson kept stealing my fruit. The favorite part of my salad was the delicious shrimp and the unique salad dressing. It’s so tasty that I wish I could buy a bottle for myself. One of the things that I really love about this café is the generous portions they give! Some days Tyler and I just split an entree.
To top it all off, Turnip Rose also has an ice-cream bar in house!! SO cool!! I’ve never seen a café with one before. This place literally has it all!!! I HIGHLY recommend you stop in and check it out for yourself. Let me know if you do and what you get to eat!! Some of the staff favorites are the Meatloaf, Super Burrito, and the Flyin’ Hawaiian! So if you’re having a tough time picking something, you can’t go wrong with one of those options.
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
ROMPER: Red Dress Boutique
SHOES: Forever 21
This is seriously the most comfy romper I have ever worn!! It is from one of my all time favorite online boutiques, Red Dress Boutique. I love that the bust area is adjustable!! I’m small chested and always have a hard time trying to make sure nothing slips out haha. I tied the top part as tight as I needed and it stayed in place all day! This color is perfect for transitioning into to fall and would even be perfect with a pair of OTK boots. I linked a few of must haves from Red Dress below.
TOP: Quick Couture Boutique
How fun is this top from Quick Couture Boutique?! The bows on the sleeves are my favorite part! They add that perfect girly touch to the pin stripes. It has a bit of a tighter fix at the bottom that I love! This boutique has a ton of cute options for fall, so make sure you check them out! I have linked a few of my favorites below!
2 PIECE SET: SheIn
If you’re in need of a one-of a-kind outfit, then you need this two-piece set from SheIn! The combination of the geometric print with the pastel colors is absolutely amazing!! The tie-front top makes for the perfect cherry on top. It is less than $20, including shipping, making it a perfect end of summer outfit!
I’m wearing a size small for reference!
Thanks for stopping by!
Who else feels more motivated to workout when they have cute workout clothes? I am definitely that way haha. I’m obsessed with this gear from Zyia Active. I literally never want to take off these leggings!! They fit soooo perfectly! The sports bra has just the right about of support and I love the criss-cross in the front. Zia Active just launched in February of this year and is already super popular on social media! She launches new items every week so make sure you follow her page!
Thanks for stopping by!
JEANS: Evy’s Tree
How fabulous are these denim skinny pants for fall?! Evy’s Tree got the topaz color just right!! These Skinny’s are a cross between skinny jeans and leggings. They basically hug you in all the right places and make your bootie look amazing! These will be on repeat once fall hits Southern California. They are currently on sale for Labor Day Weekend so make sure you check them out!! ❤

Have you ever heard the saying, “Don’t do anything else in your bed except sleep!”? I heard this phrase time and time again when I was in college. I was always watching TV, studying, eating, reading, or playing on my phone when I was in bed! Then when it came to sleep I always had issues falling asleep and STAYING asleep. So much tossing and turning. It was terrible! Doing anything else in the bedroom but sleeping teaches your brain that the bedroom is for things OTHER than sleeping.
I believe this to be the same with babies! It isn’t the end of the world if you let your baby play in their crib when you need to put them somewhere safe that they can’t escape from. But if you have the means to get a “play yard” like this one, I HIGHLY recommend it. Jackson has been sleeping through the night since he was 7 months old and only had one sleep regression before then! So technically he was sleeping through the night since he was 3 months old. I do believe the main reason he sleeps so good in his crib is because he has nothing but sleep (or cry) in there haha.
This play yard from Joovy is phenomenal!!! It has many great features for newborns like the removable bassinet and water proof sheet (for all those blowouts in the beginning.) I’m in love with the flip-away changing table; so convenient! I think my favorite thing is the diaper station though. I’ve never seen a pack and play with this before! It is perfect for storing all of your baby’s needs, especially when traveling (which we can’t wait to do more of now that Jack is older.) Joovy really thought of everything when designing The Room!
