Yes, we rock yoga pants, sweatpants, and whatever random and strange combination we may pull out of our closets. HOWEVER, when duty calls, we know how to get cute and glam it up! Yesss! Check out Sassy Plum’s photo shoot!
I LOVE a good romper! No need to fuss with multiple pieces of an outfit when you can get an effortless and chic look all in one. It’s even better when said romper is vintage with a modern flair. I love fashion for its ability to transcend an era. Today’s look is a 80s halter style romper with a beautiful palette that reminds me of watercolors. I paired it with some of my favorite marigold earrings and shoes.
What do you do with a little girl that loves her dresses? Fancy her in dresses! My daughter has always appreciated dresses and loves picking out new styles. Luckily, most of her ensembles are very affordable and don’t hurt mama’s pocket. This candy-striped sundress number was under $5 from our favorite place, H&M. She hand-picked her sandals from Old Navy.
Before we headed out for a Sunday birthday party, she posed by a flowerbed. We also visited a tractor that has been parked in our neighborhood for so long that my kids affectionately named him. Seeing as how Martin The Tractor didn’t seem to mind, we snapped a few quick pics with him too! See all her pics below.
When the wind is in your favor go with it! It was a pretty windy day when these pics were snapped but it worked perfectly for what I was wearing! Everything I’m wearing is past season. The printed culotte romper is from Target, the black sheer coverup is from Urban Outfitters and the necklace is from Charming Charlie.
Are you tasked with combing thick hair on the daily basis and need some relief in your life? Some moms are naturals at caring for and styling their little one’s hair. They’ve become better over time and are completely unbothered by wash routines. They even look forward to trying new products! Others find inspiration through online research for next week’s hair style. They just love the hair life!
This past weekend, I was honored to serve on my sister’s baby shower committee! Two babies, double trouble, double the sass. Now I love dress shopping, but I wanted to find the perfect number for this special occasion. I needed something that said elegant, sexy, sassy, and a little funky. This H&M dress said all of those things, so I scooped it up the moment I saw it! H&M does not have every line at every store, nor do they make every dress available online. But here is a link to some similar styles. The earrings are from Forever 21, and the gold pumps are Jessica Simpson, on clearance at DSW!
Blue Skies, Denim & BOW Ties. I found this awesome jumpsuit a few months back and couldn’t wait to throw it on! It’s a lightweight one piece I snagged from asos.com. It’s simple and effortlessly chic! I paired it with another fabulous BOW tie from Meyelabel. THIS is how you wear a romper!!
I’m a sucker for a good find, be it at a department store, target or a vintage shop. The highlight of this look is a super cute thrifty find, current season, from my fave Forever 21! The options for the neon pink sheer frock are endless; it could be worn over jeans, shorts or a swimsuit to name a few! The royal blue tank is Forever 21 and the royal blue skirt is past season asos. The shoes are past season Steve Madden. Sunglasses are current season Aldo. Clutch is past season.
We don’t get out often, can’t you tell? We’ve been drifting in this thing called motherhood for a while now, some of us longer than others, and we get a little too excited when we get to pop out on the town. Why? Because of life, kids, motherhood…did I mention life? Getting in a quick date during the week after a long day of work can be a great way to break up the monotony. Weekends are even better! But rest assured, when we do get out we have a ball! And this is why moms should date their mommy friends.
Hey Ya’ll I know it’s been a minute since I’ve uploaded any content. Ya girl went on a slight hiatus but I’m back with a TON of videos in the works. I have actually been filming videos but I just didn’t like any of the footage enough to upload it. This is one of many but I was able to salvage a quick snippet of how I did my perm rod set using product from MielleOrganics and the results.
Nothing says spring like flowers or floral print. In the spirit of ushering in more beautiful weather I’ve donned a great floral wiggle dress. The fabric of this dress is a perfect weight and can be worn nearly year round with the right pairings. The dress is past season asos.com. One of the things I love about my wardrobe is that I can get a lot of wear out of the staples because they are so versatile. Additionally, below are a few ways to get more bang for your buck when it comes to styling.
I had the pleasure of attending my cousin and her now husband’s wedding in LA last weekend. The sunny skies and palm trees were a sight for sore eyes coming from Chicago! It was a great weekend reconnecting with family over the celebratory event.
Okay, this is a sweet little note for the fellas because I think you all need a little tweaking in this area. Now look, don’t be mad at me…I’m just the messenger! But every year, Mother’s Day rolls around and I listen to my mom friends whine and vent, totally bummed about not really getting what they wanted for Mother’s Day. And I think the main reason is that many of you men totally miss the mark on this one. Perhaps this isn’t your fault, you really do try to make a special day and for that moms are eternally grateful! But, what if I told you there was something else moms wanted more than anything…. something that may have never occurred to you?
