Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

I've really been loving the trends that we've been seeing these past few seasons. I feel, for the most part, they're all pretty practical to wear for the everyday, one of which is the straw bag trend. It's not new to this season though, we first saw it take off last season with the cult favorite (literally) Ark Bag from Cult Gaia. I've said this time and time again that what I love about when a trend takes off, is that we begin seeing different variations of it surface. This essentially allows for everyone to embrace the idea of the trend in a way that reflects or merges well with one's personal style or at least inspires us to think a bit outside of the box with a unique piece that still feels very much like ourselves.

Happy Wednesday my beautiful friends!

For the past several weeks, I've been seeing so many cute button detailed pieces at some of my favorite stores and on my Instagram feed. It's mostly in a vertical design on tops, dresses and skirts, which makes for such a flattering detail, since it downward, visually slimming and elongating the body. The buttons are also quite notable either in a larger size or a sharp color contrast to the piece itself.

Happy Friday my beautiful friends!

I'm sure many of you, like me, find yourselves on a crunch for time when getting ready to head out the door sometimes. On days like this, there's usually something that happens that disturbs the flow of me getting ready and before you know it, I look at the clock and I have about 20 minutes to get both me and Aviah ready to head out the door. Whether you're a mom on the go, heading to work or school, we all experience this every now and then and want no fail looks that we can turn to for days like this as a result.

Happy Wednesday my sweet friends!

How was your holiday weekend? We had a great time grilling, though it was a bit chilly and gloomy. The weather has been so crazy these past couple of months especially. One day it's extremely hot and humid and the next it's chilly and rainy and what's even more crazy is that we're about to enter into June! How's the weather where you are?

Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

After a full week of what seemed to be non-stop rain and cool temps, I'm so happy to be starting off the week with some warmer weather again! When it's nice out, I've been reaching for these Franco Sarto mules. They're incredibly comfortable and go with just about everything in my wardrobe. What I love is that they effortlessly dress up any outfit, so I feel more put together when strolling around with Aviah in the most simple outfit.

Happy Friday my sweet friends!

First, I'd like to thank all of you for your incredibly kind words on last week's Mother's Day post. I loved reading how some of you other mamas could relate to what I've experienced so far and the support all of you in general showed. I also want to briefly mention that I'm trying to get pack on track with my regular posting schedule starting next week. I mentioned in this post that we found out my mother-in-law has stage 3 stomach cancer. Since that post, she's been in and out of the hospital (mostly in) and has undergone quite a few surgeries. We've all been taking turns in spending time with her in the hospital, which has of course effected my availability in scheduling content for the blog. Things seem to be somewhat improving, which will enable me to work on content and interact with you all once again.

With Mother's Day being this Sunday, I thought it would be the perfect time to feature Aviah on the blog. She's only made an appearances a handful of times and as promised, I'm featuring her again. You guys, doesn't it feel just like yesterday I was sporting a bump? She's 10 months old and I still sit here scratching my head wondering how and when did this all happen, it's crazy!

Happy Monday my beautiful friends!

Though the weather has been up and down since the start of spring, it seems as though the extremely frigid temps are gone, leaving us with chilly early spring/fall-like temps every couple of days. On those days, I've been reaching for my cozy cardigans and leather jackets, which I must admit, I've missed. I'm thankful that I no longer have to wear my puffer or wool coats and can play around with light layering.

Happy Monday my sweet friends!

I actually got inspired to put together this outfit from this look I came across on Pinterest. Though my pieces are very different, the vibe is very much similar in that it's both feminine and edgy. What sparked my interest in wanting to recreate it was the statement shoes the girl was wearing; they really made the look (and I loved the way the black looked with the olive green and white). I began thinking of statement shoes I already own that could create the same eye caching effect and immediately thought of these favorites of mine

Happy Monday my sweet friends!

Since I've been taking the time to spend with loved ones, I haven't had the chance to take outfit photos, but thought it would be a great idea to share some red outfits from the archives in hopes of inspiring you in wearing the trending color. Though purple is the color of year, red is still going strong as a trending color this spring and summer. It's a color that looks great on everyone, as it comes in various shades and hues that are sure to flatter any skin tone, cool, warm or in between. I actually touched upon that exact topic in this blog post back when I was pregnant and rediscovering my love for the color. I'm sure you'll find the tips I've shared in the post helpful!
