Black and White

Sweater: Forever 21 Shirt: J. Crew ( old but similar Here. ) Necklace: J. Crew Factory . Jeans: Paige Skyline Dream .(bought for 60% off at Nordstrom Rack). Shoes: J Crew Mona glitter flats (old). Sunnies: Target

Who doesn't love black and white? Lucky or us it is a big trend for spring. This sweater was one of my great buys at Forever 21 and was under $15.00! It screams Chanel without the price tag. So I know my blog pics have not been looking too professional since my camera died ( hope to replace it soon), so thanks for your patience. Can you believe my almost four year old took these? Don't they look better now knowing that these were taken by a toddler with an I-phone? Since he told me "mommy you look pretty today" I think I did something right? What do your kids love to see you in?

Blue Sea of Mom Jeans

Blue Sea of Mom Jeans
I am so ready for spring. I am also so loving the new washes of lighter denim for spring that remind me of the various colors of the sea - or  - the chlorinated town pool we take our little ones to until the weather warms up and we can get to the beach. I am also back to loving the Gap for their new selection of 1969 denim with labeling that makes it easy to know what you are selecting. Let's be real ladies, if your life is anything like mine, you shop on the Internet, or rush to try something on in the dressing room before a meltdown occurs. I can not understand crazy jean lingo like 811 or 911! So here is to spring and the new Mom Jeans! What denim are you wearing this spring?

Mixing Prints

Sweater: J. Crew (old) similar here. Pants: J Crew (sold out) but try ebay! Shoes: Steve Madden. Necklace: Chanel . Sunglasses: Old Target similar here.

Here is my attempt at mixing prints this season. I wasn't sure about stripes and green leopard print pants but somehow I think it works? The best thing about prints is that they hide stains your little ones put on you with their cute, adorable, but greasy little hands. How are you mixing prints this season? Happy belated St. Patrick's Day too!

Spring Break

Spring Break
Ok, seriously...another snow storm for the East coast? Makes me long for my spring break which is just a few weeks away. I put together a dreamy set of what I would love to wear on vacation and all at great prices. I love those wedges - they remind me of the L.K. Bennett wedges The Duchess has been seen in and are totally MOM walkable. Another great place for cheap swim wear this year is Forever 21. They have a mossimo inspired suit , here,  for under $30.00! I love the striped Asos suit above because it still has some sex appeal while the vertical stripes elongate your waist - a trouble spot for alot o us moms! What are you waiting for the weather to warm up to wear?

Fur and Denim

Scarf: vintage from e-bay; Shirt: J. Crew ; Jeans: Paige  (bought at nordstrom rack on sale); Shoes: Clark's desert wedge/ similar here from J. Crew and On Sale!; Sunglasses: Simply Vera from Kohl's; Fur Vest: H&M (old from e-bay)
Wanted to find a way to "dress down" my fur vest that is so soft and warm. I thought double denim would do the trick. Double denim can be tricky, but with two very different shades, it kind of works. Where to wear dinner out. With the vest off, this look is super casual. How are you wearing your faux fur still Moms?
