My outfit:

poncho :: tank :: cutoff shorts and similar for $60

A tank is that understated must that works hard under those overalls, paired with the cutoffs, and everything in between. I brought over 6 tanks on our road trip this summer and was amazed how many outfits I got out of them. If you love to layer, pair a cozy cashmere cardigan with jeans or a leather jacket. Boom, its a 5 minute outfit, because as moms we all know that is all we have right? My advice is, stock up, they’re worth the small investment and see my top 5 favorites below.

Me and my friend Tasha went to the flower market and must have been an orange mood because we picked out all the orange flowers with the exception of eucalyptus. It was an invigorating morning seeing all the beautiful bunches of flowers and closely followed by double shot lattes. A must. If you’re familiar with my instagram and stories, you will notice I have been wearing these jeans on repeat. They’re so fun to wear and really flattering. Don’t forget to check in to shop my instagrams if you haven’t. Happy Thursday!

Many people ask me about my fitness routine and diet.  The truth is, I really don’t have a routine at all.  With four kids at home during the summer, my workout is keeping up with their high energy and high impact youthfulness.  I call my fitness more organic than routine.

Here I’m showing a recent trip to our favorite park.  Getting the kids’ shoes on and them out the door is my typical warm up.  My fashion minded self always slaps on some lipstick too before grabbing my keys.  However, this park day had a new focus for me.  I grabbed a jump rope and resistance bands with the intention of getting a workout in while the kids played on the playground. Well, I did get some jump roping in, but the kids were more interested in what I was doing rather than playing on the equipment.  In the end we all worked out together; they burned energy while I burned calories. I’d say that’s a win-win.

Here are some benefits to jump rope:

Great Cardio

Great for cognitive and physical health

A jump rope fits in my purse.

It’s something you get better at with practice

The kids totally want to participate too

Recommendations before jump roping:

Go to the bathroom before you get started

Wear this type of sports bra

Here is a great jump rope

Here are some benefits to resistance bands:

 Builds strength and tones muscle

Variations of movement = full body workout

They also fit in your purse

They may be used as a slingshot

Here is a link to some resistance bands

Here’s what I’m wearing NOKAOI

See more on my DIET  and more WORKOUTS to do with your kids.

I hope our video inspires you to dream up opportunities for an organic workout with the family.  Life with kids is a discipline of endurance.  Take advantage of their youthful energy and get yourself fit.

Last week, I had the honor of meeting the Liketoknow.it team in Venice, CA. They were in town from Dallas, for the debut of their mural on 228 Main Street in Venice, CA 90291. It has a variety of colors – and shapes and it was fun seeing people’s reactions when they walked by. So pretty and well done team LTK!

If you haven’t downloaded the app, do it HERE! Also, I wrote a blog post on how to sign up for Liketoknow.it so you get links to what I’m wearing to your email.

What’s your favorite mural?  We’re off to Laguna to meet a dear friend of mine. Happy Humpday!

There’s nothing like a pop of red, or even ruffle for that matter, but lately, I have been investing in red. It pops, looks great in photo’s and events, and doesn’t show stains as much as white. I’m sold. Ruffle plus cold shoulder is a plus. This top hits all the boxes but sadly only a few sizes left. I really can’t wait for the weekend, we’re going to do a last minute stay cation. Any ideas where?

Date night is usually pretty low key, food, coffee, and a long walk so comfy booties are a must. Reid actually picked out this outfit which is pretty sweet. I feel like as much as I like to style myself and others, I like him to like what I’m wearing. So, I like this dress even more because he likes me in it. Make sense? Major plus, this whole outfit is on sale from the boots to the jewelry.

What’s your favorite date night outfit? I love wearing dresses and HERE I’m wearing a pink one. Don’t forget, I updated menu tab so you can shop my instagrams HERE.

I love some flats that can be styled up (with a pencil skirt) or down with jeans. Here I styled them with all white and a cozy grey cardigan. I live in flats so I included more from the sale below. Happy Monday!
