What's more spring then nautical STRIPES....hum nothing.

Hanging outside Paris on Ponce waiting for it to open on a weekend cause yeah I'm a mom and I have been up for like EVER. I love how nice people are when its springtime and a gorgeous day on the belt line. I mean how nice is this: a  group of fellas felt like my outfit and perhaps my modeling in front of a colorful wall needed a little something extra. So enter my cute dog accessory. How cute is that big fluff ball!!!! Throwing on something easy is a weekend lifesaver for me and this +T.J.Maxx stripped number is my new favorite! Easy to dress up with a denim jacket and converse sneaker.

Can't pinch me : St. Patty day look

Well just when you think its time to pack up your sweaters a cold front hits! I'm actually not that mad because I really wanted a chance to wear this great forest green sweater I picked up from +LOFT 
It's got a bit of silk in it so its super soft and of course I love the cold shoulder detail and ties! I paired it with some fun animal print details in the belt and sunnies and of course my favorite +American Eagle Outfitters ripped up denim.

How to style a crop top....when you are old.

Crop Tops
I have seen this trend EVERYWHERE and love love love it but was scared shitless to try it. After baby and a real distain for anything resembling an ab workout I thought my crop top days were over. Not the case just pair it with a high waisted skirt!! Instant cute outfit and I stayed all covered up. 
Another trend I tried was the cute bralettes under lace see though shirt trend. I choose a colored bralette that matched the skirt for an extra pop of the same color.

Gotta wear it now: shopping Loft's sale for spring

If you are ever shopping with me and we get seperated just look in the sale's in the back ;)
Sure I love to browse in the front of the stores with the organized sections that have all sizes and the perfectly steamed items that have just hit the sales floor...key word browse as I make my way to the back of the store where the bargains are!!! Yes the sale section is usually a mess but that's where you can get the most bang for your buck! I think the hardest thing for me shopping in the sale section is I don't want to buy winter stuff I'm over it. That's what I love about the loft sale is I can always find items that I can wear right away for spring! How sweet is this flippy skirt and blouse combo a deal at $44 for both.

Loft Floral Tie Waist shorts with trim...I have found my favorite spring shorts!

It was LOVE LOVE LOVE at first sight when I first saw these cheeky little shorts with a floral summer pattern and trim details I was smitten. That day I had to leave Loft empty handed while I waited until they were 40% off. Well that day is here and you can own my new favorite shorts for a great price and your short game will be on point for when spring arrives and your legs aren't as pale ;)

Also just had to have this Navy pocket sweater. Once springtime hits I have to own everything striped and navy I have no idea why! Since there is still a chill in the air I layered mine over a blouse.

Updating your mom look for a day OUT!!!! Lace top, bomber jacket and cuffed denim.

Every once in a while I get to go out where the people are....I never really understood the pure JOY of alone time before baby beau beau came along. Ponce City Market is my favorite place to hang baby free! The local shops, the AMAZING FOOD, the amusement park on top of the building heck the insanely beautiful and historic building itself. It's a fun place to go to restore my sole. I know that sounds dramatic but after a week of suburaban baby activites I love to visit a beautiful place and chat with other creatives or get brew and just people watch! 

Okay now for outfit details! When visiting hip trendy mixed use hot spots you can not wear boring mom wear! So retire a t-shirt for a REAL shirt and your hoodie for a cute bomber jacket. One way I tend to stay under the $40 mark is hit up the teen spots! 
Forever 21 is becoming a go to for me for fun inexpensive trendy tops! 
American Eagle is my EVERYTHING for long enough jeans ( yay I can do a cuff) and this sweet bomber jacket.
Finish off the look with a cute necklace and a bootie (I wore socks with mine cause brrr its still winter)and you are READY!!!
