Kid Style: Joah Love

Posted on April 14th, by Melanie

One of my favorite brands at The Little House is Joah Love. It is super soft, casual play clothes that my kids live in.  It is not fussy; they use great fabrics in simple but cute silhouettes

We got this outfit for our trip to Arizona, and accessorized it with the cutest beaded necklace with bird and tassel details. And it made for the perfect outfit to ring in her 5th Birthday!

Top and Shorts by Joah Love and Necklace all from  The Little House in the Fairway Shops or call 913-236-9861 to order… Continue Reading

Spring Leather

Posted on April 12th, by Melanie

I have been searching high and low for the perfect light colored leather jacket. I about died when I stumbled upon this beauty at TJ Maxx; on the clearance rack for $100!!! There were no flaws, it was in perfect condition and it fit like a glove. I knew I couldn’t pass this baby up 🙂

I wasn’t sure how much I would wear a blush leather jacket, but I have actually been wearing it constantly. It really goes with everything. I love it with a simple white tee and distressed jeans, or dressed up like I did here with a black slip dress. It’s a very versatile piece that you can’t go wrong with!

Shopping Scout: H&M finds under $50

Posted on April 7th, by Melanie

High waisted jeans are my jam lately. I can’t get enough of them! Now when I wear low rise I feel like I am naked. I tried these on at H&M and fell in love. For the high rise trend, you can’t argue with $39.99. Right? I also got this cute striped blouse…only $19.99! I am second guessing myself for not getting the shoes; considering they were only $34. Maybe I need to order them as well.

I found some other great pieces at H&M, like this sweatshirt that I have been wearing non-stop…

This star blouse was too cute not to pick up; it buttons up the back which I love. I wore it yesterday and got a ton of compliments

They also had some great knits online and I am still trying to decide which ones to get! You can shop my current H&M favorites here:

Mid-Day Munchies

Posted on April 6th, by Melanie

I think most of us hit a lull around 2-3PM. It is the time between lunch and dinner where you get a little hungry and a little tired. I find myself always needing a pick me up around this time. I used to make not so great choices around this time of day. Before I cleaned up my diet, it would be a latte and a scone or muffin of some sort. The sugar and carbs and caffeine was a recipe for disaster. Instead of picking me up, I felt even more tired! Caffeine mid-day is not the answer! And if you are the one picking up at Diet Coke at this time, I beg you to stop. You can read more about the effects of this drink HERE. I am not super anti anything, but everything I read about Diet Soda is awful and it’s an easy thing to cut out of your diet!… Continue Reading
