This girl has been perfecting her walking skills since her first birthday and now that they're pretty good (I mean, she still has that super cute drunken sailor waddle thing going on that I swoon for), she wants to be free of any arms that keep her from walking. She wiggles down, squirms until I put her on her own two feet. And then, she does a cute little run towards me when I hold out my arms... it's the cutest thing ever. Sometimes she'll run right into my arms, I'll swing her around and she squeals. Other times, she tease me - stops midway, turns around and runs the other way giggling. She is sassy that one.
Today, Nora and I are sharing our Valentine's Day-ready looks that include subtle girly pops. For me, I'm wearing the Off to Play dress from Downeast Basics that has a subtle layer of lace. I mixed this teal dress with other jewel tones for a colorful look, including matching yellow shoes with my girl. For Nora, she's just being her funky-cool self and sporting stripes on stripes, a big neon heart and pops of pink. I love her look, it just suits her so.
And for some added fun, Downeast Basics has partnered with this Mama/Daughter Style Series to offer one lucky winner a $200 gift certificate to pick up something you have your eye on - maybe something for the upcoming romantic holidays?? All you have to do is hop on over to Instagram to get entered in this giveaway. Good Luck!
Another edition of "what to get at Target right now" because Target is a worm hole of must-haves. Just ask my husband, he hears it all the time. "I just had to have this!" My latest loves are just what the doctor ordered to get you through the last of winter and carry you into spring.
Denim Jumpsuit - Target is an awesome place to shop for on-trend items to give them a whirl before committing to a pricier options. Sometimes you won't even need to upgrade - you'll get your fill and thus save money (that's how it works, right?!).
Striped Sun Hat - I wanted this last year and it was sold out by the time I went to buy... so don't wait! Perfect for those Spring Break or Summer beach and pool getaways!
Clear Bubble Umbrella - This goes with everything! Plus, you can see right through it to see where you are going while keeping dry... perfect!
Geometric Pillows - These pillows are ridiculously fun! What a fun springy (& summery) pop to add to your home's decor!
I've been loving the tomboy look since styling and wearing loafers, but getting a bow-tie was a fashion test for me. Turned out, I really liked the look and after I figured out how to style it (the white button-down was a no-brainer), I think it's an accessory I'm going to continue to wear!
This outfit worked because the black jeans keep it sleek, the leopard wedges and bright lips add a feminine touch and the gold pops add warmth. I like to mix different trends into one look, and always start with neutrals when I'm trying something new.
