Fabulous Footwear Friday

These are kinda over the top, but that’s totally what I love about them. I wear a lot of basic tees and shorts and these would be the pop I need for a little spring in my step.

Nordstrom, Naughty Monkey Dainty Sandal

Being Part of the Tribe

I’m really digging the tribal prints that I am seeing all over the fashion scene in these dog days of summer. I’ve been accused recently of gravitating towards more solid colored clothing and I think tribal prints are my way to branch out of that funk.

  2. Forever 21, Tribal Knit Top
  3. Nordstrom, Print Boxy Tee
  4. Charlotte Russe, Tribal Print Cold Shoulder Top

  6. Nordstrom, Lily White Twisted Strap Tank

Bracelet Bonanza!

Since my little mister can yank a necklace right off my neck or pull my long dangly earrings out of my ears in nanoseconds, I am beginning to think bracelets need to be my IT fashion accessory these days. Here are some super duper cuties that I have my eyes on now.

  1. Nordstrom, Stretch Seed Bead Cuff
  2. Nordstrom, Patterned Enamel Bangles
  3. Nordstrom, Bead Cuff
  4. Nordstrom, Alexia Crawford Stretch Bracelet

Christmas Wishlist: Der Edition

It’s that time again! Christmas is sneaking up on us and we tipsy gals have been pretty damn good this year if I don’t say so myself. When I sent my letter to Santa, here is what was on it:

  1. Amazon, Modern Family Season 1– I can’t sing this show’s praises enough and I totally want to own this so I can re-watch it over and over.
  2. Nordstrom, Michael Kors Chronograph Watch– I haven’t owned an actual watch of value since I couldn’t tell you when. And I know there are much more pricey pieces available, but since I’ve been out of the game for a some time… I’ll start off easy.
  3. Express, Essential Stretch Military Shirt– I am a HUGE fan of the military trend and the stretch in this top would allow room for the ladies if ya know what I mean.
  4. Etsy, Finger Print Necklace– I would love to preserve and wear my new little man’s finger print around my neck daily. It’s such a unique keepsake that I would cherish forever.
  5. Amazon, Hobo International Metallic Lauren Wallet – I adore my hobo lauren wallet that I have, but it honestly has seen better days. I really like the metallic version for my upgrade.
  6. Amazon, Raspberry Converse– Since the purchase of my very first pair of converse, I am wanting to own every color of the rainbow and these are the perfect shade of pink.
  7. Kohls, Deni Digital Stainless Steel Steamer– Steamed veggies are where it’s at in my book, so I think this is right up my alley.
  8. Timi and Leslie, Baby Jane Bag– I LOVE my current diaper bag so much, but a gal can never have too many bags, right? I love the sleekness of this bag and I would totally rock this with or without my baby.
  9. Gap, Plaid Flannel Pajamas– I have always wanted a classic set of jammies to kick it in during the winter months.
  10. Amazon, Bare Escentuals Starter Kit– I have always wanted to give this stuff a go. I have never used any type of mineral make-up before, but those infomercials sure do sell me.

A Change of Heart

I have never been a sneaker wearer in my pre-mom life. I love flats, sandals, boots, and flip flops for comfort, but you pretty much would never catch me in an athletic inspired shoe unless I was headed to work out. I’m finding that to be a thing of the past now that going out and about requires lugging a carseat, diaper bag and a trillion other objects along with me. Daily trips out of the house have become somewhat of a workout in themselves. So, here I am seeking out cute sneakers to add to my rotation. Y’all have any suggestions??

  1. Old Navy, Mesh Suede Trim Sneakers
  2. Macys, Womens Maya KP Sneakers
  3. Nordstrom, Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 Sneaker
  4. Kohls, Converse Star Player Shoes

Cobalting to a New Level

Cobalt blue is a great basic color on so many people. Brunettes looking just as stunning as blondes and red heads. Bring out those baby blues with some cobalt blue accented with yellow or turquoise. If you are feeling patriotic…throw on some red and white too.

Coral For Everyone

If What Not To Wear has taught me anything.. it’s that coral is one of the most universally flattering colors on women. Coral is great paired with a splash of turquoise jewelry. It can be sophisticated with neutrals like khaki or gray and if you are brave enough, accent it with something yellow or lime.
