Hey guys! I’ve been having so much fun playing dress up with Olivia and I thought that since it’s been a while since I last checked in that a cool kids clothes would be perfect! When I first found out that I was having a girl, I immediately started shopping for her. Her closet is filled to the brim with TONS of clothes, accessories and shoes. After having five boys, I definitely went a little crazy and bought her too much of everything. When I was given the opportunity to pick a few items out from Sailor Janes and have a kids fashion giveaway I jumped at the chance! Sailor Janes is an online boutique that carries fresh, current and, to be honest, hard to resist clothing, accessories and even toys for girls and boys!

It was hard not to buy Olivia AND Joseph just about every little thing at Sailor Janes, but I did narrow it down to two things I wanted for Olivia that I have been looking for and couldn’t really find anywhere else: a striped tank top onesie that is super soft and has amazing quality black and a white coffee muslin wrap which may or may not be just as much for me as it is for her.

I was debating on buying her a bunch of these fun Lucky Boy Sunday dolls (see below) but I just had to have that muslin wrap and onesie, they’re so so cute!

Outfits Under $50

April 23, 2016 by

I’m always on the lookout for a good bargain.  Most of my scores are found at my favorite spots like Marshall’s, T.J. Maxx and Ross but I will shop anywhere at anytime as long as it has the right fit.  Lately I’ve been noticing that a lot of my outfits have been ranging from about $50-$100 so I decided to share my top 5 under $50 and next month $100. To start things off I decided to go with my latest buy a chambray top from Walmart.  I already have a bunch of chambray tops (one with polka dots, one with florals and a thick dark denim one that I sometimes use as a little jacket) so I wasn’t looking to buy more.  However, I walked by the  clearance rack at Walmart and spotted this light weight studded chambray top for $9 and I had to have it.  At $9 it’s got all the right details, a studded collar that I love, tab sleeves and the fabric is light enough to wear all year. Thinking it would be great to wear as a beach cover up… I have lots of plans for it but this time I wanted to pair it up with a mini and my brown sandals.  Not bad for an entire outfit under $50. 🙂

What I’m Wearing:

Chambray Top – $9 at Walmart

 Mini Skirt – $7.99 at Ross
Sandals (also seen here) – $24.99 from a local boutique
Necklace – $5 from a Brooklyn boutique wish I could remember the name of the store
Clutch c/o meet mark
Bracelet c/o Twisted SIlver

Sassybax Convert-A-Skirt For Day & Night

February 25, 2016 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

A little black dress is a closet staple but a little black dress that’s also a skirt and minimizes my waist and midriff is just genius!  When I first got the Sassybax Convert-A-Skirt I immediately worried that it was going to be one of those suffocating fabrics – but it’s not.  Sure it’s snug, but just snug enough to slim all the right spots.  The more you play around with it the better it looks and what totally had me hooked was how when I realized that it held up the “little girls” and we all know that’s not an easy task.  I wouldn’t say I would be able to go braless in it BUT any strapless bra would do (unlike other strapless dresses without support where I have to search high and low for maximum support).   I’m obsessed with this dress!  The fabric is a matte black making it super easy to dress up or down.  It stays put which is important for me because I plan on wearing it on the dance floor and it’s machine washable.  I could go son and on!  It’s the perfect dress to pack on any vacation, for a night out on the town or under a blazer for a sexy office look.   For more info on Sassybax’s Convert A Skirt visit

The Formula: Denim Jacket

~ The Formula: Denim Jacket ~

Still one of my favorite dresses.

Whenever I want to look pulled together but not too dressy I throw on a denim jacket.  I’ve had this dress from Ross for years and I’ve worn it solo during the summer, with sweaters and tights when it’s cold but my favorite is with denim.  I was originally going to wear my deeper blue Levi’s jacket (seen here) but I thought the distressed one from American Eagle went way better with the boho vibe. Tip:  If you’re lucky enough to get casual Friday’s at work, a denim jacket is an easy replacement for a suit or blazer and you can wear it with any skirt or pants.

What I’m Wearing:

Dress $14.99 from Ross

Distresses Denim Jacket  $39.99 from American Eagle (also seen here)

Crossbody Bag c/o meet mark

Bangles/cuff $12.99 from Macy’s

Four Engagement Ring Clues

It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for since you were just a little girl, when you dressed up in your mother’s pearls and high heels, pondering what your life will be like as a grown up; what your life will be like when you finally meet the Man of your Dreams! It’s your engagement! While you surely may be a fan of beautiful jewellery, the options for an engagement ring are endless these days, and you just can’t help but wonder which one your mate will choose…


Luckily for you, there may be some clues which lie beneath – Just take a look at your (future) husbands personality!




Not many are willing to fault the idea of tradition, after all, it has worked all of these years for a reason, right? Your mate is the type who definitely follows this wavelength, and with the ideals of having a perfect marriage (to you), with the eventual family, the pets, a beautiful home just outside of the city, accompanied by a perfect garden, he really wants it all – in traditional fashion! If this sounds like your guy, he surely won’t ignore the cornerstone of marriage tradition – the classic diamond engagement ring! Now, all you have to say, is ‘I do’!




Fast car, respected career, all of the latest gadgets, the nice watch; your guy has got it all, and he is definitely not afraid to show it off! If your husband-to-be is the type who wants to ‘flaunt it’ (and for people to notice, without doubt), then you can take a few guesses as to what your ring will emulate: big and beautiful, with the perfect array of sparkle! There’s no way he’s going to let you wear just any ring, so perhaps you can expect a brilliantly custom-designed replica of one of the many famous celebrity engagement rings, proving there’s certainly no chance in anyone outshining his bride (you!).




Being anything but traditional, your guy has a real talent for creativity, seeing all things in a different light which many people could easily ignore. To be poetic, he’s a real diamond in the rough, and chances are, so are you, as he is likely attracted to those who stand out from the crowd, with their own unique qualities and attributes. If this sounds like your guy, then he is most certainly the creative type, and with this, anything goes! Most logically, he will choose something far from the norm, like a bespoke engagement ring with a possible gemstone, adorning diamonds, and perhaps even an engraved band!




If your life could fit into a perfectly organized and labelled folder, with everything timed perfectly and on schedule, with this guy, it would be. Your life together is planned and proper, with all aspects following an order which would make any librarian envious. In other words, you could certainly call your mate a perfectionist. His high attention to detail is duly noted, and when it comes to a decision like his future wife’s engagement ring, this is a choice that absolutely must be perfect. To match such ideals, your guys will likely do as many modern couples decide to do, and purchase the ring together! No flaws are acceptable, only perfection!
While this is strictly only a guide to predicting his choice of engagement ring, you can always remember that no matter what, as long as he is the perfect one for you, the ring will follow suit. Do you have any other ideas for how to predict such a momentous decision? Let us know by commenting below!

Personalize School Uniforms in 123

Personalize School Uniforms in 123

I’ve never experienced the ease of having any of my kids wear uniforms to school. We’ve always shopped for outfits they liked and added pieces throughout the year. This year, my son Robert has both options, you can wear a uniform or a more personalized form of uniform, which means on one day he can wear his uniform, khakis and a polo, and the next day, wear his polo with his favorite jeans from Target. His school is pretty flexible as long as we follow the guidelines and I have got to be honest, I’ve never been so excited! With all the new stylish back-to-school-apparel and uniforms that can easily be mixed and matched at Target I knew this would be not only fun to shop for but easy AND affordable!

Initially, Robert was hesitant on having to wear a uniform but because of the flexibility the school is offering, he’s able to still express his individual style. We picked a classic navy blue polo, dark wash skinny jeans (which he’s obsessed with), a few button-ups for layering and we even included some of last year’s tees to compliment his outfits. The idea was to have him look ready for school with a stylish, personal touch!

For his first look we kept it simple with his blue polo layered over a striped tee, rolled up skinny jeans (his idea) and slip on sneakers. Doesn’t he look cute?!

In the second fall inspired look, we took a few more back-to-school key pieces from Target and layered his look with a button-up and tee.

With Target’s stylish back-to-school-apparel and newly redesigned “comfy jeans”, Robert can relax knowing that he can still let his stylish side shine even with a uniform. Looks like I now have a shopping buddy for my weekly Target runs!
