Mom Style: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Monday, July 15, 2019

I always love grabbing a few new things for Fall/Winter during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. I always try to buy items that I can mix and match, grab a few staples and add a new trend or two into my wardrobe too. Here are EIGHT of my favorite picks from this year's sale: 

1: Gorjana Huggie Hoop Earring- This is one of my favorite moderately prices jewelry brands, the quality and price are amazing. It's also one of my favorite brands to give as gifts! I'm hoping these can become my new everyday earrings. 
2: Treasure & Bond Plaid Wrap Scarf- I love throwing on a scarf when I want to "fancy" up an everyday outfit, I loved the colors in this one and think it will pair perfectly with the grey sweater I bought too. (Would also make a great gift!)
3: Madewell Beadlink Choker Necklace- I have been eyeing a choker style necklace for a little bit and always love the quality of Madewell jewlery, I also thought the color of the beads were so pretty on this one, I'm excited to give this trend a try. 
4: Zella Leggings- I always grab a new pair of plain black Zella leggings during the sale, I love working out in these and they are definitely part of my weekday "Mom uniform." 
5: Caslon Side Snap Tunic Sweater- I like to grab a new sweater or two during the sale and think that this one would look super cute with leggings, faux leather leggings or the denim I grabbed too. I think this is a super versatile sweater I can dress up or down with the two pairs of shoes I bought too!
6: Wit & Wisdom Denim- I have heard great things about this brand from a handful of friends, they have a built in elastic waistband and get great reviews, plus you can't beat the price!
7: Nike Free TR8- I love the faux leather touch on the heel of these, I think it makes them feel like more of an everyday sneaker that will also be added to my daily "Mom uniform." 
8: Treasure & Bond Mules- I kept seeing the snakeskin trend pop-up all over the sale and felt like this was a subtle way to add it in to my wardrobe. They also come in leopard, which is another great way to add a fun touch to your everyday outfits.

Let's Celebrate: 4th of July 2019

Thursday, July 11, 2019

I can hardly believe it's been a week since 4th of July, we made the best memories and I'm so happy I finally got around to recapping our day! We had the best 4th of July weekend- we were all worried the weather wasn't going to cooperate and we ended up with beautiful weather all weekend long. For the past four years, we have stuck to our 4th of July traditions- we start with the best parade, followed by a BBQ at our house and typically head to our town for the fireworks. It's a long day packed with all the typical 4th of July traditions: hot dogs, Bomb pops, glow sticks, poppers... it's such a low key, no stress holiday, spent best with friends and family!

Little Lady Style: Shoes

Wednesday, July 10, 2019

Getting out of the house with three little ladies can be quite the chore, but one step I took to make things just a tiny bit smoother was limiting the number of shoes at the door! It sounds so silly, but having just a few pairs of shoes per family member in our laundry room has seriously saved SO much time when it comes to getting out of the house.

Each of the girls have three pairs of shoes each season: a pair of athletic shoes, a pair of dress shoes and some sort of seasonal shoe (like rain boots or snow boots). By limiting the number of pairs in our shoe pile, the girls can quickly find which pair they need to wear and we can be off on our next adventure!

I also include the girls in the "shoe buying" process, if they LOVE the shoes, they won't fight about putting them on, which always makes me laugh! Does anyone else's kiddos complain about putting on their shoes, like it's some long, super hard process!? This past Spring, I swear Emmy wore her purple sparkly rain boots every single day and you know what, it made life easier, she could slip them right on and they sure did make her happy! (Bonus Points: Pick shoes your kids can get on and off by themselves, velcro and slip-ons are your friends!)

Here are some of my favorite brands and styles within each category, I'm also hoping to scoop up a few pairs for Fall and Winter during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale!

Pair One: Athletic Shoe

Pair Two: Dress Shoe

Pair Three: Seasonal Shoe

Snyder Family Co. Mom Style: Mini Summer Capsule Wardrobe

Friday, June 21, 2019

This is the first summer in a LONG time that I am not: trying to get pregnant, pregnant, or nursing- which meant it was time for a little wardrobe re-fresh! Majority of the items I included are under $50, I swear I have tried on nearly 100 pairs of shorts and truthfully can not tell the difference between a $15 pair and a $100 pair! What I love about all of the items I included is that you can really mix and match just about everything. The accessories help you go from day, like the scrunchie and for night, just throw on the earrings. Now, if only the weather would warm-up in Chicago, I'm ready to start actually wearing all of these cute pieces! 

Snyder Family Co. Travels: Magic Kingdom Day 1

Wednesday, June 12, 2019

We are home from the most Magical place on Earth and I can't wait to share all of the details with you! I thought it would be best to jump right in, sharing every single detail from our first day at Magic Kingdom. I'll be sure to share more about our accommodations and travel soon too, but I know this is the most requested post right now, so I wanted to share it with you right away!

A few things you should know before reading, we were traveling with SIX kids under the age of 5, yep you read that right. There were six adults as well, so we were all able to have at least one little buddy with us at all times. As you know, we have three little ladies and my brother has three little men, which means this itinerary is great for boys AND girls! Honestly, everything at Magic Kingdom is so magical, the kids loved it all. We were also visiting in May and lucky for us Florida was experiencing a heat wave, it hadn't rain in twelve days when we were visiting, needless to say, it was HOT!

Now for the fun stuff... come along with us on what was one of the BEST DAYS EVER! (P.S. You will find a printable itinerary at the end of this post!)

7:00 Breakfast: Contemporary Cafe- Quick Service, we had a lunch reservation for 11:00, so we knew we wanted the kiddos to get a good breakfast in their bellies before we went to Magic Kingdom.

Snyder Co. Essentials Favorite Oily Tools

Saturday, May 18, 2019

Here is a little round-up of some of our favorite oil tools. If you grabbed your starter kit already, I highly suggest the trio of spray bottles and rollerballs in the middle. Pair that with the fractionated coconut oil and you're ready to go! An extra diffuser is also great to add to your bedroom for sleep support, I love the one I linked here because it will run all night. Our girls would love that little bunny diffuser and beg to ask Unicorn Rollers with the rainbow top rollerballs. Finally, grab a label maker to add a personalized touch to your oil DIY projects- start off by making our grapefruit lip scrub, it's the best! Ok, and one more thing... go ahead and treat yourself to one of those adorable roller cases, I don't know about you, but I can never say no to Riffle Paper Co. prints!

Friday Favorites May 17

Friday, May 17, 2019

It's everyone's favorite day of the week... FRIDAY! What are your plans for the weekend? We have a super quiet weekend over here, which is perfect, considering we leave for Disney ONE week from Saturday! I can definitely use the weekend to run a million errands and finish up some last minute Disney details and packing. I'm really hoping to share a full blog post next week about packing tips, but that may be a bit too ambitious!

We will be spending the rest of our weekend cheering Avery on at her soccer games and celebrating a sweet Mama to be at her baby shower. Our friends and family are having babies left and right and I am LOVING it- I can't wait to snuggle on all of these precious new babies. I hope the sunshine finds it's way to you this weekend, have a great one friends!

Happy Friday! I am so excited to spend time as a family this weekend, we have two different Mother's Day celebrations and I can't wait to celebrate our favorite ladies.

Let's Look: Mom Uniform

Tuesday, May 7, 2019

I was SO sad to not link up with Shay & Erika last month (note to self: start actually USING your planner), but I'm back this month and so excited to give a "look" into some of my wardrobe staples that I use to create my favorite OOTD (outfit of the day)! I love sharing some of my favorite "mom uniform" must-haves on the Like to Know it app, you can follow along with me by searching for @snyderfamilyco. "Let's Look" at some of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe:

Favorite Summer Uniform: I am counting down the days until it's everyday short weather! Here are three different outfits I plan on wearing all summer long.

Favorite Jeans: I currently have three pairs of jeans in my Mom uniform rotation and I LOVE them all! I have a pair of frayed hem skinny jeans in a dark wash, perfect for date night, my favorite $25 Mom jeans from Target and these exposed button cropped jeans from JCrew, which I can finally wear now that the weather has warmed up!

Favorite Shorts: One, please don't pay attention to my pale, pale, legs, it's been a long winter here in Chicago and my poor legs need some sunshine or a spray tan ASAP! I have been on the hunt for new shorts and Target was super successful for me. All three pairs of shorts are from the Universal Thread line, fit true to size, have great stretch and actually cover your booty. I was having the hardest time finding shorts that I could actual bend over in when out and about with my girls, while also not feeling like I was wearing Bermuda shorts and of course, you can't beat the price, all three pairs are under $20!

                Pair 1: Frayed Hem Denim // Pair 2: Cuffed White Denim // Pair 3: Boyfriend Denim 

Favorite Summer Dresses: I scored these three dresses in-stores at Old Navy, they are PERFECT for summer! They can easily be dressed up or down and I know they will be the perfect go-to dress for church, date nights or even to some of our summer events, like baby showers and graduations. I also just picked up this dress from Target and I can't wait to wear it!

Favorite Swimsuits- If you are a regular blog reader, or if you follow me on Instagram, I've only mentioned our Disney trip 1,000 times, can you tell I'm excited!? Here are the swimsuits I'll be bringing with me to Florida!

Favorite Pajamas- I shared the BEST pajama set in my Mother's Day gift guide, both pieces are $7, they come in a ton of different colors and even styles! At under $20 for the entire set, treat yourself to the coziest PJ's ever!

Favorite Shoes- I pretty much wear the same three pairs of shoes lately, a pair of slip-on sneakers, my running shoes, or my go-to flats! I have never been a big shoe girl, so these three pairs serve me well. I have also grabbed a few new pairs of sandals to wear this summer, a gold pair from Old Navy and the Birk dupes from Target, you need this pair!
