Ella Moss Romper

Spring is almost here, which means it’s a great time to invest in rompers or jumpsuits. I love the ease, comfort, and versatility of the trendy look. One of my favorite designers, Ella Moss, always has a great selection of rompers and jumpsuits. To make shopping for a great romper and/or jumpsuit easier, consider these three helpful tips.

  • How is the fabric? How does it drape/fit? An ill-fitting jumpsuit or romper can be a hot mess, so make sure the fabric lays nicely against your body. Personally, I like a lightweight/flowy fabric when wearing a boho-chic look, and a more structured fabric when wearing something that snugs my body.
  • Can it be dressed up AND down? To get the most bang for your buck, invest in rompers or jumpsuits that can be worn dressy or casual depending on your accessories. Also, if you only want to invest in one (maybe two pieces) then consider a solid color, such as black, white, or navy. A solid color allows more styling options. Think printed shoes, clutches, jackets, tassels, fun belts, and jewelry to change up the look.
  • What part(s) of the body do you like to accentuate? This is important, because even if you love it on the hanger, if you aren’t comfortable in it, you won’t wear it! Think rompers to highlight legs, or jumpsuits to highlight those shapely arms. If your waist is a favorite body part, try a style that is fitted through your torso.

Right now, I’m loving rompers with long sleeves. They are perfect for transitioning to spring!

Valentine’s Day in Topshop

VDay_4Aside from my husband, the other two loves in my life, are my messy and silly two toddlers. So, in celebration of Valentine’s Day, we decided on a fun mommy and son photoshoot. Jack who is also nicknamed “little lover” is full of affection and kisses, and it was fun to capture his sweetness. The wind made this day a little hard to shoot, balloons + dresses + wind don’t play well, but it was still loads of fun! I adore a classic silhouette like this cherry red dress by Topshop. It’s both classy and sexy without showing too much skin. The look feels a bit Kate Middleton, which is always a good thing!

These days, what I enjoy most about Valentine’s Day are the sweet and simple acts of love shown by my children. In our house, Valentine’s Day has less to do with expensive flowers or fancy chocolates and more about showing our love with homemade cards, heart-shaped pancakes, and sweet moments talking about how we show love for each other. This year, I decided no fancy Pinterest Valentines cards would be required of my kids. I let them choose exactly what they wanted, so it was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Paw Patrol for the win. In all honesty, they were way more excited about these Valentine’s cards than previous years. As we put together their goodies I asked them a question, “Why do you think we make Valentine’s treats to give our friends and family?” Their response went something like this, “We loooove the candy! And… because we love our friends and family.” Their response was exactly what you would expect from two toddlers, but I was happy they understood the holiday represented more than just candy or gifts. Speaking of gifts. When it comes to celebrating this holiday, Mike has always been a romantic at heart. He often surprises me with a bouquet of flowers, a sweet gift, or my favorite chocolates from Teuscher in San Francisco. As much as I appreciate and adore these tokens of love, my favorite gift is a night with just the two of us. Whether we are eating in or dining out, a delicious meal and a shared bottle of wine is my idea of the perfect Valentines! What’s your favorite way to spend the holiday?

Knee High Boots

A great pair of knee high boots can elevate any look. While I can’t wait to pair these knee high boots with dresses, I wanted to show them worn casual. As a busy mom of two, dresses aren’t always a practical choice, but that doesn’t mean I have to sacrifice style, and neither should you. Let me just say, I am OBSESSED with these boots. For the price and quality it’s hard to find better. What I’m loving most about the trend is the wide range of colors available. Sadly this color has sold out, but they are still available in black. At the end of this post, I linked a few great options in a variety of colors and price points.

  • If you need a flat boot, I love this gray pair at only $77! Perfect for busy moms and those pretty spring florals.
  • I hunted and hunted for an affordable yet quality pair of burgundy boots like mine, but had no luck. It’s a very popular color, so most are sold out. However, if you’re set on the burgundy color, watch for these Stuart Weitzman beauties to go on sale. I’ll keep looking, and will post on my instagram if I do find a fabulous burgundy pair at a lower price point.

New Years in Floral

Part 2 to my holiday series is festive floral! Sequins and sparkly dresses are everywhere for New Years, and I’m always a fan of the look! But a feminine floral dress is a great alternative to wear, and a wonderful way to stand out amongst the sparkle. With a glamorous necklace and sexy heels, the dress is still perfectly festive to ring in the New Year. Be sure to take advantage of my code for a 20% discount if you are interested in this boho feather necklace.
