Last week was spring break and I wish I could say I spent it sipping fancy drinks on the beach, I instead spent it on the floor of my bathroom potty training my 2 year old. I just want to thank all of you who did travel, I did spend my time living vicariously through all of your lives while eating more than my fair share of Easter candy.
getting dressed is hard. there are so many rules and so many things to cover. it's like doing a hard puzzle with ticking time bombs (kids) in the background. if you are anything like me, your typical momiform is jeans, a tee, and in the cooler weather - a cardigan. if i'm feelin fancy, i wear booties. otherwise flats.
The cooler weather is kickin' in here in the midwest. a.k.a, i start off freezing and by the middle of the day I end up sweaty. Hence, why I love layers.
Here is a quick comfy outfit idea: Grab your favorite, best fitting jeans (everyone needs these), a fall colored pocket-tee, tie up the bottom corner.

As the weather is beginning to swing towards fall, we love playing with the basic wardrobe pieces to warm them up a little bit. Adding a few earthy tones, like this leather mustard bow clip or blush pink felt bow clip, can transform a simple black or white little number.

"moms, that's who." - current me.
If you're like me, you dread the long days of summer coming to a close. I'm are over here milking it for all it's worth. Book reading, pool swimming, late bedtimes, and the conveniently ignoring of the things that need doing (you should see my laundry piles & bare fridge, yikes!) But, I think I [...]
