Pink Friday

sweater: the limited// shirt: diy old navy// shorts: express// shoes: steve madden// sunglasses: ray ban//  jewelry: michael kors, forever 21

Do you ever wake up just feeling blah? I did this morning and I'm pretty sure it was because I didn't have my coffee yesterday...but I made up for today after I heard on The Revolution that caffeine is actually good for you wahoo, new moms rejoice! I pulled out every eye and skin brightening product I own and painted my nails O.P.I. Pink Friday to help me get to the weekend. Anywho...I got inspired to do some diy work but naturally I couldn't find what I was looking for at the fabric store. I did find these earring studs and thought they would be pretty cool on an old collared shirt....loves :) Whatcha think about my diy handywork? There is more to come....

New Kids On The Colorblock

shirt, skirt & tights: the limited// vest: bcbg// shoes: steve madden// sunglasses: versace// jewelry: vintage chanel, vintage pearls, michael kors, forever 21

Let me start by saying that today on ABC's The Chew it was all about cheese.....seriously? As I sat and salivated the whole hour I realized I should make a trip to Trader Joes...because I needed groceries...and CHEESE!!! Usually I feel really bad because I'm like the only person that doesn't bring reusable bags ( I always forget them) but it just so happened that I was in line at Old Navy earlier using a gift card and a coupon and I needed five more dollhairs to get my deal. I didn't want to be the girl that held up the line so I grabbed five reusable grocery bags. Yay for being green and looking super cute while doing it! PS I went to the cheese aisle at Trader Joes and had almost talked my self into indulging in some not to figure friendly cheese when there it was....LIGHT BRIE...ahhhhhhhhh what a great day!

Nap Time

sweater: old navy// shirt: gap// jeans: paige denim// shoes, hat & belt: old navy// sunglasses: ray ban// necklace: tiffany & co

Two posts in one day, that's just crazy talk. If you are a new mom then you know that your day is planned around your baby's naps. Doodle man actually took a 2 hour nap on mommy and daddy's bed this afternoon which actually allowed me to get a redunkulous amount of stuff done. After finishing up my house cleaning I caught up on all of my fashion mags and even got a chance to goof around on polyvore and pinterest. I was also able to find this gold necklace that I have been obsessing over for several years!!! Sooo if anyone wants to be buy me said necklace (mom I know you read this blog!!) here is the link and it just so happens to be 20% off only today, mmmm how bout that? It was a nice relaxing lounge around the house day...and isn't that what Sunday's are all about?

Hey Party People!!!! So my friend Lauren told me about polyvore this week and it kind of made my life. Its like the adult version of paper dolls.....I mean how exciting is that? I actually had a few moments to create a set today while doodle took a nap and I actually created an outfit that I will be rocking this Spring!! I'm always on the hunt for cute shorts but when I was prego I had a little freak out about what shorts were appropriate for a new young mom. Well...I will definitely not be sporting any "Mom" shorts any time soon and you all know what I'm talking about. I've decided that I'm going to wear what I want while I still can!!!! I actually ended up buying the shorts in this set because I liked them so much and I already own those ray bans, a very similar Tiffany's necklace and some similar Marc Jacobs flats so I can't wait to put it all together!!! PS there will also be an outfit post for today so don't fret ( its just me in my Sunday comfy clothes so don't get too excited)  :)

Low Key

jacket: outback red for the limited// tee: splendid// skirt: missoni for target// shoes: old navy// sunglasses: marc by marc jacobs// scarf: pashmina// jewelry: michael kors and forever 21

Holy global warming, its been unseasonably warm here in Raleighwood and I'm actually not hating it. The nice weather has tempted me to bust out some color and bare legs. I can't believe its already the weekend again...I love weekends because my husband is home and they are pretty low key around here. Some house cleaning and reorganizing my closet have left me pretty satsified...and so has this Missoni for Target skirt. I have been waiting since like October to wear this little number and I felt like today was the perfect time :)

Mini Delights

dress: old navy// sweater: the limited// belt: old navy// shoes: sam edelman// sunglasses: ray ban// jewelry: michael kors, sylvia benson, forever 21, tiffany & co, vince camuto

Man am I having a great day! I'm crushing on all things mini this afternoon like Doodle's Mini Cooper that he got for Christmas, a chai tea cupcake ( i mean who doesn't love a mini cake?) and this mini Nicky Minaj O.P.I. nailpolish. After playing with some neon accessories this week I have jumped on the neon bandwagon, BUT if I'm going to do neon then I'm going to tone it down with a neutral like gray. My hubby and I are going out to dinner tonight, with doodle bug of course and I'm pretty stoked about it. Hope you guys are having as good a day as I am!!!! PS yes there is some icing missing off that cupcake...I couldn't help myself :)

...I Want That

jacket: the limited// shirt & skirt: old navy// shoes: shoedazzle// sunglasses: versace// bag: the limited// jewelry: the limited, forever 21, michael kors

Well I went there...I tried out the midi skirt! I think with the right proportions it actually looks pretty figure flattering. Today was a little terrifying since our dog Wrigley ate an entire tray of fresh baked chocolate chip cookies off the counter last night, I spent the whole day checking all around the house to make sure that she (and our carpet) were ok, seriously? Anywho, its the last day to enter to win that Balenciaga Bag that I really want and here is the link http://www.fashionchalet.net/2012/01/giveaway-balenciaga-arena-classic-city.html. EEEEK I want that bag soo bad it would have looked soo perfect with this outfit. See you's guy's tomorrow!

Risky Business

dress: tobi.com// bag: marc by marc jacobs// shoes: steve madden// socks: banana republic// sunglasses: ray ban// jewelry: michael kors, forever 21, the limited, tiffany & co

Today I felt like channeling Tom Cruise in Risky Business, oh Tom, why did you have to turn into a crazy mofo? Anywho, it was a beautiful day in Raleighwood and all of the sunshine was going to my head so I busted out some neon...which is risky for me but I liked it! I'm still trying to win that Balenciaga bag from the fabulous Erika at fashionchalent.net and here is the link http://www.fashionchalet.net/2012/01/giveaway-balenciaga-arena-classic-city.html. PS thank you lauren!

          Dress & Necklace: Madison// Jacket, Scarf & Belt: The Limited// Shoes: Old Navy// Sunglasses: marc by marc jacobs

So I wasn't woken up with a sausage muffin this morning, and although the day started out being icky it actually ended up being a lovely day. When I found this dress in Cameron Village it reminded me of the hours I used to spend looking through kaleidoscopes when I was a kid....so I had to have it. I used to love looking at all of the different colors and designs and how they changed with just a click. I kind of feel like that's my style right now. I don't buy clothes unless I have a reaction to them when I pick them up in a store. And who does't want to be reminded of their childhood when getting dressed?

Rainbow, Why So Blue?

sweater, shirt and skirt: old navy; scarf: the limited, shoes: marc by marc jacobs

Dense fog and intense mist make for some carazy pics people. I'm convinced that the sun has gone on a little vacation (and when I say sun I mean that guy from the Jimmy Dean commercial hehe). It just feels so dang dreary outside so I decided to lighten things up with a little nod to Spring. I hope the sun wakes me up with one of those turkey sausage muffins tomorrow :)

Blerg it was cold today! I'm pretty sure that if you could hear these pictures being taken you would have heard my teeth chattering and my face frosting over. If you guys haven't noticed I don't usually wear jeans...partly because I'm border line midget height and I think they make me look even shorter and partly because after having an 8 pound 6 ounce baby my body has done some funky things. BUTTT these are my favorite pair and they actually FIT sooo I'm going to rock them thank you very much. Keep on keepin on my friends.

Rainy Day Yellows

I feel like people tend to dress down on rainy days...haha but not this girl, I tend to overcompensate for the dreary weather with bright colors and large amounts of jewelry. I was feeling a little like Madonna today but 80's Madonna, pre-fake British accent and scary bulging muscle arms. Pleats and flowy fabrics are making me really happy right now so I went out prancing in the rain...and you can progressively see my hair getting drenched through each photo.  I'm still trying to win that Balenciaga bag eeek and here is the link http://www.fashionchalet.net/2012/01/giveaway-balenciaga-arena-classic-city.html. See you tomorrow bloggy friends!

I Got Some New Shoes On

Don't you just love when you get new shoes? I usually find myself trying to plan new outfits around them. But don't worry, I've already scuffed these up so I feel like I've had them for years...geez. Mamadukes told me they look like "blogger" shoes, as in only someone crazy enough to have a blog would wear them, and this isn't the first pair she has said that about. I take it as a compliment naturally! The only reason I'm prancing around in this outfit is because I'm going out to dinner tonight, so give me a break. I had some company during my photo sesh...ya know, just the local cat and some kind of unidentifiable bird. Also, to go with my shoes I'm trying to win this fabulous Balenciaga Bag from this amazing blog I follow and here is the link http://www.fashionchalet.net/2012/01/giveaway-balenciaga-arena-classic-city.html!!! Anyways, Doodle man tried bananas today and it was the cutest thing I've ever seen. Hope you have a great beginning to your weekend!

Outfit Replay

So I wore this outfit on Saturday but was too busy/tired to capture it so here you go. I couldn't not post this because I realllly liked it.  I'm starting to notice that there are pieces in my closet that I really should wear more since I absolutely love them mainly because of the memories they envoke. I got this vest at the Michael Kors store in Soho for my birthday a couple years ago and I wish I could wear it every day!
