Wrap Around Skirt and Bodysuit

Quick post today! Sporting another one of my go-to monochromatic looks – hey, if it ain’t broke right? It never fails to bring about a sense of sophistication and put-together-ness to a look. Even if you have no clue what to wear, you can always combine a few colors in the same family and end up with a look that works. Also if you read this blog you know that I absolutely love a great bodysuit, and this is one that I bought a while back while on a bodysuit shopping binge (I think I bought like 10 at once?) – but i’ve linked to some of my favorites that are currently available below. Also, this camel colored skirt is the perfect summer piece, it is a faux suede and it wraps around to tie at the side, perfect for every body shape!

By the way, I’ve switched up my ‘Shop’ page a bit to make it easier to see my outfits – so please check it out if you get a chance!

Fly As A Mother with Pink Banoo

In honor of Mother’s Day (coming up May 8th) I’ve teamed up with girl boss Masuma Mansuri, owner of Pink BANOO – a company that strives to empower and inspire, through fashion – to feature some cool shirts that could be a great gift for your mom, or if you are like me, you can gift yourself (me when buying gifts: one for you…one for me :)).

I’ve styled the two tees in todays post, and I thought it would be fitting to feature Adam and my second baby, my puppy Briggs. The first style is a lightweight sweatshirt with long sleeves, and the second a wide-cut t-shirt. The material is super soft and comfy, I’m loving it for this amazing warm weather we have been experiencing.

With each purchase made, Pink BANOO gives back to girls’ education. Over the last 2 years, they have helped over 150 girls, globally, with a year’s worth of books, uniforms and school supplies. The “fly as a mother” campaign honors all the moms who make a difference each day, and stay *fly* while doing so! 10% of proceeds will be donated to benefit girls’ education.

What better way to start the week am I right? Thanks for visiting as always xx

Sailor Pants and Stripes

As I am continuously trying to expand my wardrobe to include more pants that aren’t skinny jeans, yet still equally cute, I found these adorable sailor style cropped trousers recently at Nordstrom (and now they are 40% off!). These are great for work paired with a blouse tucked in, and for weekend with a tee or a cami. I chose to wear with a classic striped tee in a 90’s crew neck fit, to make it look a smidgen more modern. (Side note: I’ve always said ‘smidge’ instead of ‘smidgen’ – thank you spellcheck, I stand corrected.)

Lots of things to be happy about today, it is Fri-yay, Earth Day, and it is another beautiful sunny day here in Chicago. Lately I’ve been on a real gratefulness kick, and today is no exception. I’m waking up happy and constantly commenting on how nice something or the other is. I even caught myself before texting a semi-snarky (okay it was snarky) comment to a friend that was about another person. I finally realized it may be a result of starting to journal a few months back, and by journal I mean all I do is write down a sentence or two about something that happened that stuck out to me during the day. The funny thing that happened is after I write down stuff, good or bad, the good stuff sticks with me, and the bad stuff seems a little trivial, as it tends to do in retrospect.  Such a simple thing to do with great results, you may want to give it a try if you aren’t already!

Have a fabulous weekend xx
