Leopard Print is the New Black!

I have the perfect pair of leopard print sneakers from Sam Edleman I love and one of my coworkers recently told me I was the only person who could pull off a shoe like that in my everyday wardrobe. To which I replied, “what do you mean, leopard is like a basic it goes with everything and literally anyone can “pull it off.”  I know for some it might seem a little wild or intimidating but the way I utilize leopard in my wardrobe is viewing it as a basic. Instead of reaching for a black pump to pair with my favorite skinny jeans I go for a leopard print pump or if I am wearing my LBD I go for a leopard print clutch. In the blog today I want to show you how easy it is to add leopard to your wardrobe.
Whenever I decide to try a new style or trend I like to start small with something easy and inexpensive like a great accessory. So, if you’re unsure about leopard print but you want to start making a statement a stylish clutch or cute shoes are the way to go. Here are some of my favs!

One Skirt, Three Ways!

I love finding that perfect piece to add to my wardrobe, and today I’m sharing this amazing hot pink, pleated, midi skirt I found at Target! I’m always on the lookout for specific pieces I want to add to my wardrobe. For awhile I’ve been looking for the perfect hot pink skirt. I know its a little unconventional piece to want, but I got inspired way back in 2012. I first saw Olivia Munn sporting a hot pink pencil midi with a cute blue lace top. (Who remembers that far back? Saved the pic on my pinterest board, Duh!) I loved how simple yet fun the pop of color added to a look. I’ve tried on many pink skirts before I found this beauty. What I love about it is the midi length, it's a classic cut that tones down the brightness of the piece. I also love that it's more of a flowy skirt and not a pencil. We all know I have a few extra pounds I’m still working on post baby and this skirt masks it perfectly. The other big selling point is the versatility of the piece. You all know I lov…

Finding Acceptance in My Postpartum Body!

I've been wanting to write a blog post about this for quite some time, but my content editor, and creative writing major, sister, told me what I wrote sounded negative and depressing. The fact of the matter is the post baby bod does leave me feeling a little depressed and negative. My postpartum body makes me feel like I did back in high school, you know when your body is going through a lot of changes and you’re a little self conscious? It was a long journey toward accepting myself in my new body back then, and now I feel I’m on this journey again as an adult. Of course, it’s different now. Back then, it was trying to feel comfortable so boys noticed me or so kids didn’t pick on me. As an adult no one is going to pick on me, and for me I got the boy and married him, so no need to impress him. As an adult, it's more about  gaining back the comfort I had with my body. As a fashion blogger and someone who loves shopping and trying on clothes, I learned quickly how to dress my bod…

#momstyle

When becoming a new mom there are many things you find yourself sacrificing, good style should not be one of them. When I was pregnant I fell in love with everything maternity. Now that I’m a mom there are even more goodies to keep me looking like a hot mama while also keeping my look functional for my #momlife.
The first item I want to talk about is the teething jewelry for mom. If you follow my blog you know I love a good accessory and I've found with a new baby I can't wear my big statement necklaces. My little wiggle monster is constantly rubbing or snuggling his head into my chest. Although an outfit just isn't complete without a good piece of jewelry to liven it up! I'm obsessing over the teething jewelry! The jewelry is soft and safe for baby to chew on and it won't break if they tug or pull. I got two pieces at my baby shower and I'm so grateful to have them especially now that JR is putting everything in his mouth. My greatest find when it comes to teet…

Encapsulated!

On today's blog I’m going to take a minute to switch gears from fashion to talk about something that is a little taboo but, I've found over the past couple of weeks has become quite the conversation starter. I'm talking about consuming or encapsulating your placenta post baby and the added benefits it brings to your postpartum recovery.



It all started two weeks ago when one of my good blogger friends Samantha (@samantha_show) started a discussion on her insta-story about encapsulated or consuming your placenta and what did it all entail? She asked her followers if they had any experience with this holistic remedy and I had to share because I made the decision to encapsulate my placenta to help with my postpartum recovery. Fast forward to the weekend at a blogger brunch and I found the topic came up again out of the blue and there I was sharing my story over mimosas and quiche. Since there has been so much discussion on this topic I thought I'd  take a postpartum break o…

Local Adventures!

Since emerging from my maternity leave two months ago I have begun to get back to my blogger life. I was posting here and there, but took a little hiatus while pregnant. Now my little man is here and I'm finding more time for mommy. I've been going to a lot of local blogger events and interacting with so many small business. The only problem as a new mom I'm trying overcome the obstacle of actually sitting down and writing blogs. I have trouble finding the time  to let you know all about these amazing small businesses I have been seeing. Therefore in today’s blog I wanted to take the time and recap some of the people and small businesses I have encountered on all the blogger events over the past couple of months.




SisKiss: A local accessory business, ran by two sister Megan and Marla. I was fortunate enough to meet Megan at one of my blogger brunches and she is so much fun and has a great sense of style that is transparent in some of the amazing accessory pieces SisKiss has…
