love is (still) in the air: a belated valentine’s day look
February 17, 2014

hello friends,

i hope you all enjoyed a wonderful valentine’s day, whether that meant dinner with your special someone, a night in with the gal pals, or some solo-and-happy retail therapy!

having spent friday in the most casual of gear with my littlest in tow, i deemed yesterday my makeup opportunity for this year’s “day of love” outfit.

what resulted from (what i humbly consider) a delightful pairing of leopard, blush and red.  wishing you a fabulous week!

stylish mom monday: trading leopard spots for polka dots
August 19, 2012

i’m really excited about this post, as it features a fashion risk i would have never taken even a couple years ago.

however, after seeing it mastered by blair eadie (my daily icon!), i mustered up the courage to give it a try.

sassy leopard print, meet festive polka dots. loving how well you two get along!

this unexpected pairing is a great way for rushed moms to create new, bolder neutrals!

and while we’re all about mixing prints, let’s add one more — on our toes! now my third go at the sally hansen polish strips, i’m crushing on this “love letter” pattern (pun intended!).
