Rain Check

Last month, my husband and me took a weekend getaway to New York City. While there, I had planned on wearing this outfit for a romantic Valentine's Day dinner out. However, Mother Nature was not having it and would have literally frozen off my tootsies had I worn this. forward to March and I still haven't had a chance to pair these red heels with anything. Looks like a date rain check is in our future!

Easy Match

If I'm ever in a rush (always) or can not find anything that looks good together (constantly), this combo of stripes, a blazer and a bright statement necklace are my go-to for looking instantly pulled together without much thought. And bonus for having lots of options for the bottom half - distressed jeans, a-line skirt, shorts, white pants - the possibilities are endless! Here's to a stree-free week of easy dressing.

Furry Collar

It usually takes a me a little while to jump on a trendy bandwagon, especially those that are realistic for a 30 something mother of three (no thank you, overalls)! But I did recently find this image and figured I'd give the furry collar a try. And happy I did! I adore the extra glam it adds to an otherwise basic outfit and plan on donning it over sweaters, coats, or even a casual dress (adorable here). See below for some faux fur options.

In the Nude

Layers are key this time of year, right? But, I'm not so much into layering with dark, heavy colors or bulky fabrics this late into winter anymore. What I am into, are spring-like hues and soft textures that give the hint of warm air, but still realistic for the outside conditions (which aren't pretty right now in my neck of the woods). In any case, this neutral ensemble is exactly what I need to keep me dreaming of spring.

Even though the weather doesn't feel as if spring will arrive anytime soon, it doesn't hurt to dream about the breezy, warmer temps coming in the next couple of months. Here are a few options of the 2015 spring shoe trends we'll likely see in stores and online. I've already got my eye on several of these!

Weekly Wednesdays: Master Bedroom Makeover

It all started with our desire to upgrade to a king size bed. After considering what we would do with our old bed and how the kids' rooms would be affected, we pulled the trigger and bought a whole bedroom set. So what was supposed to be an easy upgrade turned into more of a whole room makeover. We finally settled on the furniture, so now my head is spinning with ideas. Should we go light and airy with our bed linens, keep the room a calm and serene place? Or should we have a bright and cheerful room fit for an active family of five? I'd say the answer was pretty clear. I love color, I love cozy, and I especially love that when my kids use our bed as a landing pad (happens more often than not), I won't cringe at the ketchup stains they left behind! Here is my inspiration for the finished room. Bright bedding, colorful side tables, and a touch of sophistication with the art deco mirror and mercury glass vases (strategically placed high enough to avoid those messy fingerprints). I'll be sure to update when it's all said and done. Happy Wednesday, friends!

Navy Print

Last week, we were blessed with sunny weather in the 60s for a few days and all I needed to keep me warm in the cool breeze was this graphic printed scarf wrapped around my neck. Sadly, the weather didn't last long, but I'll take whatever I can get!
