Adding a Pop of Color to Your Wardrobe

how to style a going out top with jeansHi guys! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! I love the weekends because that’s when I get to spend time with my little family and just relax! This look was from Friday night when we went out for an ice cream date at our favorite ice cream spot up the street. I thought I would pair this pretty silk top with a pair of jeans for a casual but still somewhat dressed up look. I love pairing dressy items with pieces that aren’t typically seen as being ‘dressy’. Just something about the juxtaposition; kind of like pairing a girly dress with a leather jacket!

Are Fashion Rules Really a Thing?

Fashion Rules Are Meant to Be BrokenClearly I don’t follow the ‘fashion rule’ of not wearing white after Labor Day. I mean, I feel like that rule (and all fashion rules, really) are kind of meant to be broken, no? I’ve had this conversation with a friend recently and I feel that if you genuinely like something and feel good in it, then rock it. People may look at me and wonder what the heck I am wearing sometimes but I choose to just ignore those people. As long as I feel comfortable & confident then it doesn’t really matter.

Work Life Balance for New Moms

Cute Floral BootiesToday I am talking about something that many of you mamas out there might understand all too well…Mom Guilt. It’s the worst. Something a lot of you might not know about me is that I work full time and my husband is a stay at home Dad. I actually love our arrangement most days, but then some days I find myself feeling guilty for working and not being at home with my babe. I start to ask myself questions like, ‘shouldn’t I be home with him? I am his mom after all…’ But my husband is such an AMAZING Dad he makes me feel so good about going to work and is always reassuring me that I am providing for the family right now and that is okay.
