A Perfect Fit for Day & Night




Comfort is key.  This is a look that I would wear on a day out, shopping or to lunch with a girlfriend.  Underneath these pieces is a comfortable t-shirt bra (via Kohl's c/o) that gives me plenty of shape and comfort.

I'm in pretty good shape.  But after having twins and being pulled and stretched beyond, I need a little help every now and then in the tummy area.  Assets by Spanx (via Kohl's c/o)  is my little helper when wearing a dress like this!

Kohl's has a fabulous selection of bras and they even have bra measuring tool to find your perfect fit!  I used their tips and found some beautiful and comfortable pieces.  I loved coming up with some styles that I typically wear and what intimates work with those outfit.  I'll be showcasing more styles tomorrow so come back and check it out!

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day!

Back to Basics


If you don't know it, I'm a mom.  But before I was a mom I was a single working woman, married without children, pregnant (with twins), a stay-at-home mom, and now a mom back to work + a fashion blogger (you can read more about my story HERE).  What does all that mean?  I've probably been in almost any fashionable situation you're in.

I recently had a reader email me about getting back her wardrobe mojo.  She had been a stay-at-home-mom for 15 years and was getting back into the workforce.  I'll admit, after the nuggets were born, it was sweatpants and sneakers (or slippers) for about a year.  It was all I could manage between all the diapers, bottles, and pacies.  After I felt more like myself, I vowed not to lose myself or my love of fashion.  But it can be overwhelming, especially if you're not a shopper or particularly like fashion.

My look today?  Classic style pieces to build your wardrobe.  Especially if you're starting from scratch.  Think dark denim (style can vary depending on body type), blazers, well made tees, basic black handbags and shoes, and go-to accessories.  You can add pops of color with your lip color or scarves.  Stick with neutral colors in the beginning and add color when your classic pieces are set.  Need more help?  Utilize a stylist, Nordstrom and J.Crew offer free services!

Start today and get back your wardrobe mojo.  I plan to share more tips over the next few months so I hope you'll come back, ask questions, and be inspired.

Even though I bought the beautiful perforated Tory Burch bag for summer (which I completely love), a nice white handbag may still be in my future.  Another piece of summer clothing I'm still debating about?  A jumpsuit.  They seem like a perfect style item to have, a sort of set it and forget it.  It's an all-in-one outfit - what could be better?  ASOS, 20% now, has some fabulous jumpsuit options (and petite jumpsuits)!  I found some gorgeous jewelry and home accessories at C.Wonder.  I'm totally in love with this handbag.  Now at C.Wonder you can get 40% off your purchase of $150!

My family used to vacation in Scottsdale, Arizona each year.  My classmates would always laugh and say why are you going to the desert (they were going to Florida)?  But those trips were some of my most favorite memories growing up.  Every year we would plan an outing - a hot air balloon ride, jeep & horse ride through the desert, or the Grand Canyon.  There was also plenty of relaxing by the pool because there was always sunshine.  Almost every day there was a cloudless crystal blue sky.  When we would get those, not so often days at home, we would say, "it's an Arizona sky today!"  

This sweater from J.Crew is a beautiful shade of blue.  It's perfect for layering during the spring and light enough to still wear through summer.  Find your perfect shade of a blue sweater!  I love bringing out the summer jewelry too and can't get enough of Julie Vos' collection, my favorite bracelet, necklace and earrings!  I've been looking for white distressed jeans and this Free People pair are just perfect and a perfect price.  I am a denim girl, what can I say?

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful Wednesday!
