I Do.

Most little girls dream about the day when they get to wear a princess dress and walk down the aisle to their handsome prince and into happily ever after!  I my lovely friends was one of those little girls, and though I have been married almost 10 years, even now I still peruse the latest and greatest in bridal fashion and anything that has to do with weddings.  Today a very special friend of mine is starting a new chapter in her life and so I I thought what better way to honor her big day then to dedicate today’s post to her and all of you bride to be’s!! 

Pinterest is my favorite spot to get inspiration for anything from fashion to new recipes.  Here is what I have been pinning lately on my Wedding Board:

In my humble opinion, it’s all about the dress.

2 in 1.

Top: DIY; Jacket: Arizona; Jeggings: Similar; Booties: Steve Madden; Converse: Old; Hat: Old   

Hello friends!  Time has had its way with me over the last several days.  Spring has finally “sprung” in these parts- at least for the time being.  You never know around here!  But I woke up on Saturday morning to clear skies and sunshine and I was all too eager to dress accordingly.  It was a bit chilly despite the beautiful sunshine so I chose an embellished sweatshirt which I made a fun make over on by cutting the long sleeves into short ones and layered with my denim jacket .  A few summers ago I bought a pair of melon cropped jeggings from the Gap that I wish I had bought in every color and so I was thrilled when I found these lemon yellow ones.  My new Steve Madden booties finally got to make their debut this week and have become a definite favorite.  They are the perfect taupe color and will go with everything from jeans to dresses and skirts!  As much as I love them though, they are not quite broken in yet and so at the end of the day out came the Chuck’s and a baseball hat which I liked just as much for a bit more casual vibe.  2 outfits in 1 folks!! Love.

In other news, I’m sporting a fresh cropped cut- a bit shorter than I’ve gone in the past but I’m having fun with the change.  I have literally had everyone from the teller at the bank window to strangers at the grocery store compliment my new do and ask me who my stylist is.  If you live here in the Portland area my beautiful friend, Da’Lynne at Bombshells Salon, is the lady behind my new look! She’s amazing!!

Have you started pulling out your spring wardrobe yet? What are your favorites this season? 

Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Hello there!  Sorry for my MIA status as of late, kiddo schedules, teaching and just the every day juggle of errands and responsibilities tends to take over and so I have been living in leggings and sweatshirts…lazy!!

On this WINDY day however, I decided to make a last ditch effort in making myself presentable and took my girlies to their school book fair.  I have been on a major hunt for the perfect denim jacket.  The problem is that I have a specific one in mind and it is all but non-existent unless I resort to becoming a thief and swiping it out of my bff’s closet.  Unfortunately for me that is not an option since she loves that jacket too!! (I can’t even find a picture online so if any of you come across a destroyed denim jacket, that is just the”right” color and the “perfect” amount of distressing, send it my way please!)  So because of my predicament, not one of the bazillion denim jackets out there right now has come up to snuff.  Wrong color, too boxy, weird hardware, you get my drift.  While scoping out the kids section at none other than JCPenny’s (great little girls clothes surprisingly!!), I came across a whole rack of Arizona cropped denim jackets that were clearanced out to 11.99.  Since I am short waisted the cropped length worked well and I layered it over a tunic and some Aztec print leggings.  The tunic has such a fun cut out lace detail on the sides that I love so much and is a good alternative to the more spendy Free People tunic which I also loved this season. 

Do you have a favorite denim jacket? 

Have a great day!!

Someone recently asked if I ever just wore yoga pants instead of my dressier duds.  My reply was an exuberant YES!!! In fact most days, as I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, I can be spotted in leggings and a sweater or sweatshirt of some sort to accommodate teaching my weekly dance classes and well lets face it…my desire to just be comfortable climbing in and out of the car and buckling up a bazillion seat belts ALL+DAY+LONG! :)  Anytime I come across a way to play up this particular look I am all over it.  The leggings were a great find.  They are actually a little bit dressier than your average legging- the print isn’t actually dots…hard to describe.  But the top of the pants have an actual waist band and some cute side pockets so a tucked in shirt would work with them too. 

On this day I was meeting up with my bff for a lunch date with our munchkins.  The hair as usual was about a day passed needing to be washed so out came a hat.  I kept adding layers with the denim vest and the scarf and ended up with this creation which I really ended up loving.  Perfect for keeping up after my posse but kicked up the mom-in-sweats a notch!!  

I decided later that day that the outfit was definitely blog worthy.  So while shooting a few photos out front, our cat, Charlie, decided he wanted to be on the blog too.  Hands down he was my favorite accessory! 

What are your favorite layering items?

Yesterday I posted some of my style pins off Pinterest that are currently inspiring me, one of which included a polka dot blouse that got some interest on my Instagram.  So it was only fitting that I shared my own outfit post with you today.  Polka dots are so easy to pull off.  My bestie ordered this  shirt dress from Old Navy online but decided after a few months with the tags still on it that it wasn’t for her…yay for me!!  I usually stay away from straight cut dresses because I have a short torso, but a belt and a faux fur speckled vest nipped in the waistline just right.  I don’t know how I missed the memo on fleeced tights til recently.  Tights have never been a favorite wardrobe essential, I know they are supposed to keep things sucked in and add a little extra polish- but I had yet to find a pair that was not only comfortable but cute too!   I found these at Marshalls when I was looking for stuff to take with me to wear in NYC.  I wish I would have known how much I was going to absolutely love them because I would have bought them all!!! (Especially at only $4.99 a pair!)  I literally wore them everyday in the city, LOVE them!  I wore this particular outfit to church but this look can easily be transitioned into a more casual deal with leggings and a scarf!

It’s Friday!!! I hope you all have a great weekend, thanks so much for stopping by!
