Over Easter weekend, we took a trip to Branson for my cousin’s wedding.  The wedding itself was a dream…everything looked so beautiful!  And as always, it was great spending time with all the family!

I’ve got lots to share from the trip…next post (fingers crossed!) I’ll share a a video of a few of my road trip essentials with ya’ll!

Touches of Red

I wore this to a very causal after school fundraising event.  I needed something that could easily be spruced up a little between day and evening.  So during the day I wore the outfit with these boots and the sweater knotted.  After school, I switched up the sweater (good thing because the event was HOT!), added a few more bracelets, slipped into the red pumps and put on ruby lips.  A few simple changes can totally transform a look!

Hope you enjoy your weekend! I’ve got another fundraiser tonight and some birthday celebrating tomorrow!

And happy Daylight Savings!

Farewell Party

02 Aug 2011 Permalink

When I first became a mom, I learned that there are two things that do not mix well together – newborns and jewelry.  Not newborns wearing the jewelry, but the caretaker of the child wearing the jewelry (I didn’t lose you there, did I?)

As much as I LOVE fashion jewelry, it is near impossible to hold a newborn (delicate skin and all) while you have on multilayered necklaces, chandelier earrings, cocktail rings, or arm parties. (What’s an arm party? See here.)  So here’s one last “party” before I spend lots of time snuggling with my new bundle – sans jewelry.

Florals and a Fedora – #23

06 Jul 2011 Permalink

Summer is in full swing, and if you’re one of the lucky ones carrying around a growing fetus inside of you (sorry…is that too gross to hear??), then you’re probably feeling extra warm and uncomfortable.

I’ve been trying to keep my clothing to a minimum…it’s just too hot to wear any layers!  So, accessories have been my pregdrobe rescuer.  Instead of wearing a necklace how it was intended, I wrapped this double chain one around my wrist.  A fedora helps block the sun, and of course, sporting sunglasses means I was able to skip out with applying eye make up (kind of…I always apply mascara.)

How’s the summer treating you?  How do you change your attire/makeup routine in the warmer months?
