Ok so its no surprise that I lurve me some printed pants....... They are a closet staple because they allow me to run around after a 16 month old doodle man and look dang chic while doing it!!!! I used to only wear dresses and skirts (for like the first 20 something years of my life I kid you not) but after becoming a parent....pants are just way more practical.....and after all I started this blog to document my style and how it changed after becoming a mom. So here's to never wearing "mom jeans" and rocking out some printed pants!!! 2013 is going to be full of them!

PS these may or may not be in the mail as we speak......oopsies :)

As the new year approaches I think to know what....2013 is going to be my year. I'm sure you guys have noticed that I'm no wallflower and that I don't fade away into the background so I've decided I'm going to allow myself to get even crazier (style-wise that is....I'm already crazy enough) during the next year. So stay tuned skrillas.....its about to get real.......PS I'm even more fired up now to get my crazy on since a commentor this week told me that I could have "toned things down"......bahahah obviously they don't know me!

Today's Copycat Lookbook post (where I find looks I love and put them together with pieces I already own) is inspired by a blog that I started following a while ago and she definitely pushes me to play with guys need to check out Bittersweet Colours so you can inject some vibrancy into your wardrobes! I saw her rock this burgundy and mustard look a couple of weeks ago and I was like plaid shirt....burgundy blazer and mustard pants...boom, done! 

So...Christmas came and went and it actually was full of surprises! My amazing husband surprised me with a Furla Candy Bag and I was pretty shocked because I had written down on a scrap of paper months ago that I wanted one and thought it had been thrown away....but he saved it this whole time! 
I also got some awesome Stella & Dot goodies from my in-laws (ok I picked them out but still!). You can see my Christmas loot on the What2Wear Facebook page and instagram!!!! PS I'm also excited because I'm heading to my parents house at the beach today and who knows....I might have more surprises there (hopefully some dang Starbucks gift cards!)

Well its Christmas Eve day.....this is honestly the first year that I haven't been excited about presents that is.......I'm super freaking excited about doodle's presents. My trip to ifbcon in New York was my Christmas gift (which is where I got this sweet t-shirt from!) so all I asked for was Starbucks gift cards in my stocking. I can't wait to see doodle covered in wrapping paper with boxes all around him, it really is a surreal experience this year as far as my mentality towards certain things that used to bring me joy. All I want for Christmas is to be with family and see doodle's eyes light up in front of the tree.......although some Starbucks gift cards would help me stay awake to see that, that last shot will be my face if I don't get any.......Merry Christmas Skrillas :)

I don't know about you guys but this has been one of the most hectic Decembers of my life....I've had several events every week and I'm pretty exhausted. Last night I had a Christmas dinner with some of my (I can't really say former because they are sisters for life) sorority sisters and it was desperately needed. My husband and sweet baby boy both have strep-throat and its been miserable in our household for the past several days. This jumpsuit and a couple glasses of wine have been the only things keeping me going.....a lunch date with Molly certainly helped too!! I'll say have a happy weekend skrillas with the last bit of energy I have left :)
