Favorite Wears: Spring Pants

 

 
Spring is all about layers, loose fits for breezy feels and fun colors. I had to give these wide leg, easy breezy pants a try - and they are indeed fun. I especially like them dressed down with my new favorite sneakers and casual jacket, but they can easily be dressed up, too!

One thing I've been working on more: I try not to avoid wearing certain colors or things just because I'm not a size 4.  And what I find that makes bolder pieces work on me most is having fun with them and confidence. But also balancing a more adventurous item with neutral or tried and true piece helps! 

What helps you be more adventurous or try new trends/items?

Weekend with Friends & 50 Shades!


 

The final DVD in the Fifty Shades trilogy is here! Fifty Shades Freed (Blu-ray combo pack + exclusive packaging + photo gallery inside) is available at Walmart, and you won't be disappointed. After snagging my copy last week, this weekend some girlfriends and I gathered to drool over Christian... and watch the story of Christian and Anna unfold. In this movie, we get to see the two get married and start their life as newlyweds. But of course it's never as simple as just that! No spoiler alerts here!

To get in the mood for the showing of Fifty Shades Freed Exclusive DVD, I picked up some relevant movie theater candy and wine. I love playing off of a theme, and this movie made it so easy and fun.

My movie premier snacks of choice:

Hot Tamales
SweetTarts
Hershey Kisses
Tootsie Pops
Strawberries
Wine... and more wine

And no party with wine is complete without wine glass markers. These "pool boys" hanging from our glasses were just too perfect for the occasion. Mini-Christians. If you're looking for an excuse for a girls night, this exclusive DVD is available at Walmart now! And I'm already ready to watch it again, thinking I can get the hubs to watch it with me?? ;)

Favorite Wears: Coffee Break


 
These days, my favorite coffee break date is my lil' Nora. She gets chocolate milk (in a coffee cup to be like mama) and I get my caffeine fix.  We share a treat (she gets most of it) and we actually chit chat. Spending one on one time with each of my children is so important to me - I can see them flourish right before my eyes - and I get so much out of it myself. I love learning more and more about their evolving personalities, seeing them change and enhance daily. They make me so happy (most of the time), and this age is golden (because they still like me).

On another note, I've been where these new mules non-stop since getting them.  I have even walked 20 minutes through the uneven streets of NYC on a work trip. They are comfortable and go with everything (thus also my go-to travels shoe).  These are the types of products I'll invest in - they hold up, work with my busy lifestyle and are comfortable (and work for my coffee dates).  Nora even clammers around the house in them acting like mama.

This outfit is my easy-throw-on-and-go-outfit.  I feel comfortable, but it feels chic for whatever the day brings us. You can shop the look here:
