NYC Retail Icon, C21 - Online Wish List!


The first time I went to New York as an adult (there was one time as a kid before), I was with my friends and we spent some time shopping (duh). One of my friends was in law school there at the time, and so took us to a bunch of places we'd never heard of coming from middle America.  I remember one of those places being Century 21, what I later learned to be a NYC retail icon. And I remember walking in to find a massive selection of designer brands at more affordable prices. They have so many great, and unique things that I could never get in Kansas City.

I'm always on the hunt for more unique items that not everyone will have (though that's unavoidable for somethings).  Even though I am in New York for work often now, I don't have time to shop and hit up the Century 21 in the flesh, but thankfully I've been reunited with the store via their site online.  

I have rounded up some of my favorite items for Spring/Summer available on their site right now:

1. Graphic tees are perfect for casual weekends to athleisure looks, and I'm loving soft pink/peach hues for spring/summer, so this Lady from Mars tshirt is perfection. 

2. The perfect little black dress for all your summer weddings - I am obsessed with the lace cape detail on this one!

3. I love Oxford shoes, and these light neutral ones would be perfect with spring/summer dresses, cropped pants and skirts. 

4. Metallic skirts are so fun right now. I love this one in silver (also comes in rose), and could see it dressed up or down.

5. Use your feet for a pop of color - I love these block-heeled fuchsia sandals

6. I am incapable of posting a wish list of clothing items without stripes - this striped dress would make the perfect repeat staple!

7. This sweet blush dress with lace detail would be perfect for any springs/summer showers or weddings, or even just a girls brunch out.

8. This one-piece scalloped edged swimsuit by Kate Spade is 56% off!

9. Bomber jackets are all the rage, and perfect for cool summer nights. I can't get enough, so I love this one with fun patches.

10. C21 has an amazing perfume and fragrance section, too, and I'm craving a new scent...
11. This 3.1 Phillip Lim classic tote is 30% off, and I love the pewter grey color.

12. This is a cool gold/black ring, but it's not just any ring - it's actually a tech ring that connects to your phone/apps.

Easter Dresses Sneak Peek!


I'm still looking for the perfect little Easter outfit for Liam - but thanks to Kids Dream, I've found Nora's, and it goes with mine! We're blue for Easter this year, I guess!  Here is a sneak peek of our Easter outfits!  I love getting dressed up for this holiday, and so does Nora.  It's nice when she is excited to wear a dress, because most of the time she's just content dressing like Liam. ;)

I love Kids Dream for their sweet dresses (we found Nora's first flower girl dress for my cousin's wedding last summer) and shoes.  These shoes are ballet inspired with a little ribbon closure - and oh-so-sweet. Nora could not wait any longer to put on her new dress and shoes, so we just had to take our looks for a spin!

What are you guys wearing for Easter?

Mamas & Minis Collective: Easter Tees!

Getting my kids dressed, let alone getting them to wear something I want them to wear, is a challenge! Liam would wear sweatpants or sport-shorts on the regular (and to be honest, he basically does) if it were up to him. And while every once in awhile, Nora gets excited to wear a dress or skirt, she mainly wants to dress like her brother! So, they both pretty much live in t-shirts! For them, it's about being ultra comfy - and who am I to argue with them on that!?

So, I especially love seasonal relevant, cute tees that they love to wear! My kids will celebrate any and all holidays, so when I surprised them with these cute bunny tees for Easter, they quickly swapped out what they were wearing already to don them - and then proceeded to hop like bunnies the remainder of the afternoon! I am cracking up over their faces of focus! 

Check back tomorrow for a sneak peek of Nora and my Easter looks (I'm still shopping/looking for Liam's!). HINT: We're feeling blue for this Easter. ;)
