Spring Camo

Flats: Edie Tory Burch Pants: Zara (last year) similar here, Sweatshirt: Kate Spade (last year) similar at Old Navy. Denim Jacket: Ann Taylor ( super old) Similar J. Crew Factory and 25% off with code HELLOMAY. Necklace: Chanel Sunglasses: Marc by Marc Jacobs .

I have been getting a lot of wear out of these camouflage skinnies. They have stretch so are great to wear out with the kiddos as they also hide stains. slide right down behind the kids on the jungle gym and don't even worry that you just slid your bottom through a mud puddle! How are you wearing camo this spring?

Feeling Spring Blues

Feeling Spring Blues
There is something about dressing in various shades of blue that is so easy and casual , yet - put together. The great and easy thing for moms dressing in all blue is you really can throw items that don't "match" together and end up with a chic look . Throw on a pink or neutral lip and a utility vest and you are ready to go. These H&M heels are under $20.00 and have a walkable heel! What colors are you putting all together this spring?  FYI: J Crew Factory having 50% off everything in the store. Next Post: How to Spend less for the things you really want.

Light Rain and Errands

Shirt: J. Crew; Vest: Old Ralph Lauren Denim and Supply; Jeans: J Brand; (bought for > 50% off on eBay); Boots: Hunter ; Sunglasses: Number One from eBay;  Watch: Timex, bracelets: bauble bar, J. Crew Factory (on sale now) . Necklace : A gift ( Thanks MB!) Lipstick: Smashbox (mandarin)

I always struggle getting dressed when there is light rain. The Hunter wellies may have been overkill but they are super comfy and very country which suited the day and running errands. The light rain also explains the dark pics! I know the sun will come out soon and I can start sharing some warm weather looks. I have to say this Chambray shirt from J. Crew has well earned its price per wear value and endures all year long.  I am feeling ready to put away the winter boots scarves and mittens. Think I will get to that this weekend with all my free time :) What are you gals wearing in light rain?

Spring Transition Inspired By Jenna

Spring Transition Inspired By Jenna
I have to admit that Jenna Lyons is one of my favorite women to watch for her perfectly put together styles. She is a master at the high low mix and always adds a touch of quirk to her preppy look. And - she is a Mom and business woman. Her white on white look is a great way to transition to spring. The white is fresh, but you are still bundled up with the blazer. I know what you are thinking ...WHITE ...for mom wear? But here is the best thing - you can bleach it! Plus - these jeans are already destroyed - so when your sons GI Joe gets mixed in with the laundry they will only look more cool. I am obsessed with this shoe. Black patent screams spring , they are fashion forward and have a walkable heel. Throw on a pink scarf on if you really feel for color, but don't forget your red lip! My only change - a cross body bag to stay hands free. What are you wearing to transition into spring?
