Street Meets Society

I found a gorgeous ensemble at Nordstrom recently. Topshop for the win! Topshop, the British based brand, works exclusively with Nordstrom and online. They also have a flagship store in NYC. Their clothing is fashion forward and can be dressed up or down for any occasion.

I put together a flirty outfit that works well for a society event or a fun time out in the city. At a glance you think chic, bold, tailored, breezy.

The knot front top is playful and comes in three colors. The pants are high waisted and have a wide leg. They are pleated and provide a very tailored look.

I am loving suede in any fashion item right now and these sling backs add a whole other element to the outfit. They are embellished with crystals for a bold and fun look.

Gold is hot again and so are hoops. Rather than wear the same old large hoop I wore a delicate dangling hoop. They are so elegant and beautiful.

Ya’ll this tote is great. It has a sophisticated appearance with the gold finish out and a looped handle. It is large enough to carry my essentials (mostly kid gear) and does not weigh a ton. Thank you!

Nordstrom is definitely a favorite right now with their collection. Everything is on trend and the price point is definitely right. You don’t have to spend a fortune or buy high end to look the part of the most talented new fashion designers!

Blue is one of my favorite colors. I like all shades of it and think it is one of my better colors to wear.

I had fun getting ready tonight. I took turquoise, navy, gold, silver, and brown and created a chic look that is full of comfort.

You know I love a good maxi dress. I recently ordered a second maxi in navy from Amazon Fashion. This dress is so comfortable. There is great movement to it and it is lined. There are even pockets too.

When it comes to accessories my collection is full of goodies old and new. My necklaces are both older. The turquoise cross was given to me as a gift from a local artisan. It is beaded and has a gold overlay cross. I layered this necklace with another older strand from Francesca’s. Their store is full of surprises. Jewelry, clothing, shoes, gifts, and more! You will lost certainly find something to purchase before you leave.

My shoes are so incredibly comfortable. I can’t believe my luck when I purchased them. The heel is wide and not too tall. The material is suede and provides a wide  coverage on top. A definite must for your closet.

My clutch is from Sam Moon Trdaing Company. They have a million things under the sun. The store is perfect for costume type necessities. I did find a wonderful site on Etsy that carries embroidered and embellished clutches. This is similar to what I am carrying. They are gorgeous- enjoy!

High Stepping

It is no secret that I enjoy working out. One, it makes me feel better. Two, I can still fit in my clothes. 😉 Three, I can eat what I want. I am not by any means the billboard advertisement for health and fitness, but I am modeling a healthy lifestyle for my family and that is what matters.

I go through workout clothes pretty regularly. Cardio is my vice and that means a lot of work and sweat. I keep on hand 5-10 outfits that transition through seasons. Right now I am loving the mesh capris. They are edgy and can be worn for all types of activities. I kept it casual with a simple cotton tank.

You know me and my Nike’s. They are one my favorite shoes. The Air Pegasus is great for my arch and stability for my knee. Soccer and cheer did a number to my knees and these shoes address all those aches and pains.

So, as I high step into hump day I hope you all will take a little time for yourself. Be true, be real, be you!

Stay healthy friends.

Mommy Daughter Time

This afternoon was the best. I had mommy daughter time x3. My mom and I, and my two daughters hit The Shops at Park Lane for some good shopping and a whole lot of fun. Proof below! Ha!​

My mom and I are very close and it is such a special feeling to share a similar relationship with my girls. This week has been a blessing for us. The boys are in school and the girls get all of my without the silly wildness the boys bring to the picture.

To celebrate, we shopped. Don’t tell the boys! We were all about casual today. My comfy 3/4 length piko, denim capris, and rose gold mules polished the look.

I had fun with my accessories today. I wore heirloom pieces, my grandmothers gold hoops and her monogrammed pendant necklace. I added a layered Anthropologie necklace and wore a casual watch from Target.

My purse is one of a kind from a NY based company, Remember Me Green. This is an eco friendly company that makes products from recycled vinyl billboards in NYC. Their specialty is tote bags. Visit their online store for great products.

Hitting the Grind


As I said yesterday, now that the school year has commenced it is time for me to get back to business. While I will miss my littles, it is such a great accomplishment to be at this point in my life.

I have a wonderful family, we have our health, and we have the resources to provide a sound education and safety for our children. In my book that is success!

In my independent life it is nice to wear another hat aside from mom. While that is the greatest job I have ever had, I am looking forward to pursuing opportunities that further enhance my life. Talking to you, providing inspiration, and empowering others is such a great feeling. I can’t wait to take this journey with you all.

I loved my look this morning. I felt like the ultimate girl boss. Feminine, elegant, in charge, and whole lot of sass!

I love my suede round toe wedges. I have had those in my closet for some time and they continue to be a favorite. They can transition between many pieces too. Below is a similar style to shop.

My blouse and pants were purchased from a boutique outside of Austin. The Boutique Kyle. Follow their Instagram page for ideas and products. The pants are Lysse and are fabulous. Control top – come on moms you know this is nice in a leather finish. Yes, yes, yes! The black and white top is soft and easy to wear. It goes with several pieces of clothing and is a great versatile piece.

The Louis speaks for itself. I love this neverfull bag and let me tell you it took a whole lot of persuading to finally buy it. Every time I went to the store I kept thinking that it was the equivalent of 35 cases of diapers. Four kids that were 3 and under at the time explains my thought process. LOL!

My accessories are Michael Kors and a dangling gold earring from a The Fuss Boutique in Watercolor.

Happy shopping!

Back 2 School


My little ones started their big adventure today. Kindergarten and a full day of school. How exciting to witness this milestone in their lives. I am so grateful for the opportunity to guide them and shape them into the men they will be one day.


While they start this adventure, mama is starting one of her own too. This year all four of my babies will be in school. I will have two days of no children. What will I do with myself?


Being active and present in their school district is a must. I regularly volunteer and occasionally sub in the district to keep abreast of the environment and gain rapport amongst the staff.


Prior to babies, I worked for the best airline in the industry, Southwest Airlines and was a part of their dynamic marketing team. When the military started moving us, I went back to school and earned my masters in education and became a certified teacher in multiple states.

Now that my children are growing older blogging and marketing are active in my life again. I wake up daily and am excited to share my life with you all. I love hearing from everyone too.

Here is our back to school look. Mama’s look is more versatile to accommodate school drop-off and then hit the gym.

There are a lot of sales on many of the pieces. Also, you will receive free shipping on Target.com with orders of $35 or more. Happy shopping!
