A Touch of Summer in The Spring

Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

The weather is starting to  feel what most people would consider a normal summer day but for Floridians its still spring becuase it’s still not inhumanely hot.  Most days it’s in the low 80s and a cold front pops up maybe twice a month bringing the weather down to normal spring temps but it doesn’t really matter down here.  Once March rolls aorund the daisy dukes come out in full force and the wife beaters are sold by the dozen (I’m not kidding about the wife beaters – I tried to buy my teenager a pack for his MMA class and there was only 2 packs left in white at Target lol). Anyway it doesn’t leave much room for layering but it does give for some fun styling. You can pair a trench with denim shorts, pack a cardigan to the beach or wear your bikini under a linen blazer for a night on the beach.  Its a laid back style that you can’t really wear all year round anywhere else.

Spring Hair Pinspiration: Messy Braids

April 9, 2014 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

So the little guy has figured out how to pull my hair.  Every time I’m feeding him he grabs a fist full and pulls!  I’ve tried a hair clip but they annoy me after 5 minutes and every time I put it in a bun I think of The King of Queens episode with Carrie wearing a bun (see the clip below).  So I’m left with a pony tail or a braid.  I prefer the latter because my hair is long enough for him to pull on the pony tail if he is in the right position.  I’m not the savviest when it comes to braiding my hair so I’ve been searching for the perfect messy braid

Filed under Celebrity Copycat

I love an outfit that manages to incorporate sweat pants and still be chic like Naya Rivera’s, especially now while I try to lose some weight.  Nothing too complicated here just some good ol’ sweats, sleek sneaks and fab accessories.  SO easy to duplicate on the cheap and so easy to even give it a sexy makeover by adding some pumps a tanks and a casual blazer  Check it out below

Coachella Dreams

Unfortunately I’ve never had the pleasure of attending Coachella but it’s always been a dream and every year I drool over the festival’s free spirited styles & pictures all over the internet.  I figure if I can’t go to Coachella I can live vicariously through the pictures and maybe even incorporate a little into some outfits. A girl (or mom) can still dream…..

The Backpack is Back!

April 6, 2014 by  
Filed under Accessories

 As a 90’s teen it was all about the backpack and now it’s making a comeback. In fact I still own a fleece plaid backpack from the Gap, a brown leather backpack from Benetton and my favorite from Frye – it’s perfectly worn in and cost me two paychecks from working at Macy’s back in the day.  It’s a trend that could not have come at a better time now that I’m a new mom (click here to read about my new addition) again a backpack is a great alternative to a baby bag.  Check out some inspirational pics featuring a backpack and some affordable ones to shop as well.

Celebrity Copycat: Victoria Beckham’s Look for less!

April 6, 2014 by  
Filed under Celebrity Copycat

I’ve always loved wearing heels but after going 9 months without wearing them they’ve become more of a obsession.  This season I’m all about statement heels that can take a casual outfit and give it a little oomph.  Last time I featured Khloe Kardashian wearing a henley and jeans with sexy animal print heels and this time its Victoria Beckhman.  Love how simple her outfit is and the wow factor of the red heels…perfection!!!  Great way for a busy mom to incorporate something sexy without too much thought.
