Doodle Inspiration

top & skirt: old navy// jacket: sunnies: marc by marc jacobs// shoes: stylemint// bag: louis vuitton// jewelry: michael kors, diy, posh locket, jewelmint

This outfit was inspired by doodle's onesie that he was sporting today...the combo of mint, coral and neutrals is perfection! A fellow blogger (hello Leah!) introduced me to the website that I got this jacket from and I'm so grateful because its one of my new faves and its going to be in heavy rotation this Spring. Tomorrow I'm heading down to Wilmington for my bachelorette weekend..yes I'm already married but I never got a bachelorette weekend and since our big wedding is THREE WEEKS AWAY YIKES I get my weekend to be a blushing bride. But don't worry, I'll be posting from the beach :)

Spring Wish List: Sporty Skirt

top: old navy// blazer: h&m// skirt: stylemint// shoes: keds// sunglasses: ray ban// jewelry: the limted, tiffany & co

Its rare that I find items on my wish lists and actually purchase them because I have shopping ADD, BUT this Spring I actually managed to find everything I wished for. One being this fabulous sporty skirt...ironically enough I fell in love with one from Elizabeth and James which is one of Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen's many brands and then boom, I found this one on Stylemint which is the Olsen's  newest endeavor and it ended up being more in my price range!! I love the sportyness of the skirt and paired with a knit blazer and Keds.....yes please!!!

"Everyday"- Snapshots

The monotany of "everyday" life sometimes gets to me, so today I decided to pack up dinner and have a picnik. We bypassed the usual dinner in front of the tv with doodle discovering that getting dirty is really fun...watching a couple of Canadian geese get into a fight in the pond...and the feel of grass between our toes! What was on the menu you ask...tofu stir-fry and edemame...not your "everyday" picnik :)

Easy Breezy

dress worn as skit: french connection// sweater: old navy// shoes: marc by marc jacobs// fedora: jessica simpson// jewelry: the limted, diy, kate spade, michael kors, posh locket

So what does one wear when they are a frazzled mom who just needs to run to the post office and the grocery store? If you are like 90% of the other moms I saw today then you would say either pjs or an ugly t-shirt and jeans...shame on you! Its just as easy to throw on a cute top and bottom....and heaven forbid we talk about accessories....I know you need at least 3 more cups of coffee to focus on those, at least if you live on coffee like I do. My point is....even if you are just going to the grocery store people can still SEE YOU, I hope your kid takes a nap this afternoon and that you get your act together, in the nicest way of course, from one mom to another :)

With a Twist

top: cardigan & clutch: the limited (old)// jeans: target// shoes: dolce vita// sunglasses: ray ban// jewelry:diy, michael kors, sylvia benson, posh locket

I love when classic pieces are updated with a a classic shell with a peplum, denim in bright yellow, a cardigan with vintage inspired buttons I found at the craft store and basic gold sandals with a giant seahorse! Even a basic manicure gets a twist with an accent nail...and when I say manicure I mean the off chance that I have enough energy after doodle goes to sleep to paint my nails :)

Betty Draper at the Museum

dress: h&m, bottom dress: shoes: steve madden// sunglasses: marc by marc jacobs// bag: louis vuitton// jewelry: via nerolli, sylvia benson, posh locket

I was feeling very Betty Draper-ish in this outfit today...and although she is a total biatch on the show I long for her wardrobe! It was a big day for the doodle man with both sets of grandparents coming in and the whole lot of us going to the Natural Science Museum. What a tiring but great afternoon! Can't wait to see who I'll feel like channeling tomorrow :)

Moves Like Jagger

top & belt: the limited// pants: h&m// shoes: calvin klein jeans// sunglasses: marc by marc jacobs// jewelry: via nerolli, posh locket, sylvia benson, diy

This ensemble reminds me of a toned down version of something Bianca Jagger would have worn to Studio 54 in the 70's, man was she fabulous! And can we talk about these shoes for a second...its like someone took my escense and put it in a shoe form...they are bright, comfy and just the right height for me to zip around town in mommy gear. I think to start your Friday night off you should bust out some moves like Jagger and get your groove on :) See ya tomorrow

dress: french connection// belt: the limited// shoes: hat: target// sunglasses: versace// jewelry: michael kors, kate spade, ea burns (

After a pretty crappy night I arose this morning (at 4:30 mind you) wanting to escape into another world. And since this is my blog about trying to find my new style I decided to give Alice's look a spin around the block. I found my own Wonderland just 2 miles down the road...and although it doesn't consist of mad hatters and evil does have beautiful fountains and frozen yogurt...what more could I ask for? Since I was channeling Alice I decided to debut my new fanfreakintastic necklace made out of repurposed leather...obsessed much? And ok, 4 inch wedges are not the most practical "mom" shoes, but I was in my Wonderland, so kiss it evil queen!

Portrait Sneak Peek

I'm sure you guys are tired of hearing about my bridal portraits but I am so excited about them! Mammadukes took a couple of snapshots while they were being done but I can't show you the real ones yet because I don't want you to see my dress before the wedding sheesh! Anywho, I'm pretty sure that my life is way more entertaining than most reality shows on tv right now...for instance if there was a camera crew in my kitchen this morning at 7 am they would have seen me in my pjs, with my 4 inch Badgley Mischka stilletos on (trying to break them in for the wedding) vacuuming with one hand and drinking coffee with the other while doodle man was pulverizing my calves by running me down with his walker. This was at 7....imagine how the rest of my day went. The only thing those Kardashians have on me is about 30 plastic surgeries :)
