I'm sure many of you have heard that midi skirts are the way to go come fall and that they're chic and versatile, too. While I do agree with all of those claims, I will say that a basic midi skirt isn't always flattering for all body shapes. When you're bottom curvy, a satin or basic midi style can cling and essentially not flatter at all. I'm rolling my eyes at you hip dips!

Happy Monday Friends!
I've been doing a lot of thinking of how my style, interest, and priorities have changed immensely. I thought this would be the perfect time to share one of many things I've found to be important to master by the time you reach your 30s, finding your signature scent. All throughout my 20s I experimented with a lot of perfumes from various brands, both high and low end, and have managed to narrow it down to three that I love and highly recommend: J'adore by Dior, Flora by Gucci, and Guilty also by Gucci. I've worn all of these fragrances over the course of about 10 years and have found myself repurchasing and reaching for them more than any of the others I've tried.

Happy Friday friends!
This weekend marks the unofficial end to summer; it's Labor Day weekend! Though it does look and feel very different this year for obvious reasons. It typically serves as the last hoorah before heading back to school, resuming normal work schedules and finishing up the last of our vacation plans. Since much of us have been home, due to Covid, there really isn't much of a transition happening. However, that doesn't mean we can't enjoy the holiday and those who have resumed work or telecommute will (hopefully) have a long weekend to relax a bit.

Happy Wednesday ladies!
On Monday I briefly mentioned style as it relates to #momlife. I really try my hardest to avoid wearing an oversized t-shirt and biker shorts to the park with the girls because let's be honest, it's often what I'd prefer to wear. Don't get me wrong, I do wear it sometimes, but these days an outing to the park is a huge deal (lol) and so I like to put that extra effort in styling an outfit that's as comfortable as it is stylish. I will say when planning a day or even just a few hours with little ones, sneakers are a must! This is where it can get quite fun because you can experiment with different colors, patterns and styles to help add some interest and style to a simple outfit.

Happy Tuesday & Happy September friends!
I've recently shared a post on some of my recent purchases. In that post, I mentioned adding a pair of leopard boots to my shoe collection. Now, I must admit, these are not my first pair of leopard boots. In fact, they are pair number two! You may be wondering why I need two pairs of leopard boots and the answer is quite simple. The first pair, which you'll see in the outfits below, have a chunkier heel and are therefore a comfier and more casual option when I'll be with the girls. When I'm out on my own or for a date night, I wanted a sleeker pair and my recent purchase has a pointed toe and heel, which fit the bill. I felt inspired with this new addition and seeing how animal print, including leopard, is trending heavily (no surprise there!) this fall, and wanted to showcase some outfit inspiration on how you could wear a pair of leopard printed shoes. They are so versatile! When styling, I consider them a neutral and add them in as I would a black or nude shoe. The only (major) difference is that they add a bit more to an outfit than those sold options would. I've featured some outfits that are both adventurous (pattern mixing) and simple. I couldn't help but smile seeing some of these past outfits of when I was pregnant with Aviah and Ariah. Time flies! Ok, let's get started...
