Blissdom shout outs! (These are folks I met in person at the conference):

I bought a sweet print from this artist.

This is a great idea for a blog,

This awesome mama blogger bought my cookbook the day I had a book signing.  I was so grateful I  wanted to give her a hug, but I thought for sure she would think I was a weirdo.

This sweet lady blogs about marathons and gluten free living, it made me so happy to see how pumped she was about becoming an affiliate for my cookbooks!

Loved meeting this “middle-aged” mama, her blog is about menopause and motherhood it looks awesome.

This gal cracked me up! She walked up to me and complimented me on my braid and said you must be a fashion blogger!  I couldn’t help but laugh out loud and said no, I write about placentas and yoga and real food.  She also has a super cute Etsy shop.

This lady made me laugh too. When I was introduced to her from a mutual blog friend she goes, “ooooh, you’re the girl that had her freezer post go viral on Pinterest.” Yeah, that’s right, I’m that girl.  :)

Leah, has a sweet and inspiring blog.

And this woman MADE MY NIGHT!  When she figured out who I was, she nearly squealed in delight and excitedly said “My first time meeting a rock star blogger!!!”  I about fell over with embarrassment, but I have to say it was nice to be “recognized.”

I have been following Random Recyling for a long time and it was such a pleasure to get to meet her in person.  She was one of the cu
pregnant mamas at the conference.  Haley, M+BL staff writer, with her bump, was very cute too!

Meeting Jacinda of Prudent Baby was a highlight, she is one of my personal rock star bloggers.  Their blog is what inspired me to start my own website!

Also, loved meeting these YouTube sensations: Hey Kayli , Cute Girls Hairstyles (who actually took a picture of my hair one day and posted about it because she liked it so much!) and CarlieStylez.  I hope my YouTube channel is as popular as theirs one day!

The author of Minimalist Parenting is who I had my book signing slot with.  I felt pretty honored to be next to her!

Anne-Marie of Do Not Faint became a sweet new friend, love her blog topic and how she is helping other mamas.

And it was great to see other friends I met last year like Greta of Chosen Chaos.

  1. I think your outfits are really cute! No wonder they thought you were a fashion blogger…. just discovered your blog a couple weeks ago but it has really helped me to transition to eating “real” foods. Thanks!

  2. Stephanie says:

    The outfits look great! I can’t decide which I like more – the polka-dot pants or the nautical look with the khaki pants & green cardigan. I think it’s great to see Lands End clothes on real people!

  3. You look amazing in each of those outfits! Thank you both!

  4. Thank you for the link love! And please consider this my entry for the Land’s End gift card :)

  5. Katie Register says:

    I love the Lands End looks! Very fashioinable but it doesn’t look like you’re trying too hard and isn’t overtly trendy. The paisley dress is just fabulous with the camel shoes!

  6. You look beautiful Stephanie! I love Lands End too :-)

    This week we’re working on thinking of things to improve in just 15 minutes in The Granny Plan. Drop by to join us for 12 weeks of real food mastery. Also, I’ve shared my favorite posts for March.

  7. Thank you for hosting! I left a post of my favorite kitchen tools. Enjoy!

  8. I was drooling over your outfits on Instagram and I would love to have some Land’s End loot of my own!

  9. The khaki pants with green cardi are my fav! Thanks for the giveaway!

  10. Linh-Han says:

    A look for every scene or outing, very chic and versatile. Thanks for sharing great mama inspiration and style!

  11. I am loving the outfits you put together. I feel like Lands End has become more fashion forward lately, but with the quality that they are known for! Score for the shoppers out there.

  12. Thank you so much for the link! You are too sweet!

  13. Love all of your outfits!! Would love that $100 gift card, too!

  14. I am so in love with all of your outfits!!! I think my fav is the denim and navy cardi outfit, and I would never think to put that together! Super cute!! I’ve seen you on Cheeseslave’s FB page this week and in my inbox from Mama Natural!

  15. Christy says:

    I hope I win! Especially since we just enacted a strict budget! Now I’m drooling of buying all new clothing and it’s not allowed!!

    • If you do, get some cardigans and belt. It’s amazing how much a couple of cute cardigans and skinny belts can transform and dress up a whole wardrobe.

  16. I love the outfits! My favorites are the jeans from the first post, and the neutral outfit with the polka dot pants :)

  17. These outfits are adorable! I am attempting to change out my wardrobe from my tshirts and sneakers, and add a bit more of a ‘grown-up’ mommy look… Pretty much like these! Thank you for the constant inspiration. :)

    -Steph Johnson

    • Lands End is THE perfect grown up mommy look. Their clothes are so well made so even when I wear a t-shirt and khakis I feel pulled together.

  18. Happy to find you and was referred to you by my friend Lindsey :)

  19. I would love to win- thanks!

  20. Lynne Johns says:

Lands End has great cloths and I really didn’t realize until I started reading your blog. I also had no idea about the high end line either until you posted it, thank you.I am going to have to go get some pieces to add to my wardrobe.

  81. Loved each One of those looks, head to toe. Perfectly put together without going overboard. You don’t give yourself enough credit!
