I’ve been searching for what to wear to an evening out. Post baby 4mos and I cannot deny I feel and look a little different than I did a year ago. That said, I found this beautiful flowey jumpsuit (that looks like a dress) evening attire. I LOVE it and got lots of compliments wearing it. If you have an evening wedding to attend, cocktail hour, charity or just a BBQ date night, I recommend going the jumpsuit route.

Since the jumpsuit is from Shopbop and they’re having their annual sale, I included some faves below. I’ve been shopping the Shopbop sale in between making kids lunches and vacuuming up Legos. Oops. Lot’s of birthdays happening in the upcoming two weeks, so I’ll make it brief. I’ve been crushing on all things olive, jumpsuits with insanely large wide legs, anything belted, and exaggerated sleeves, particularly the balloon sleeve. I found a couple of those things and more on the Shopbop site. I included many of them below, so check it out and let me know what you think. Bonus, if you have any idea how to organize these Lego’s!

Most of you already know, I love a good stripe! And a stripe two piece is no exception. I love how lightweight this two piece is as well as so versatile. I’m definitely bringing this on our anniversary trip to Mexico coming up. It packs well and looks great with colored heels. What is your go-to vacation outfit? We just published our A Frame “Before” video here and my shop page is open 24/7!

I ordered a TON from Nordstrom Kids before we left for our trip to Vail. Us not living in a cold weather climate and donating lots of our coats just before we moved out of
Chicago left us with a laundry list of items to purchase for each of them. I got boots, sweaters, cute buffalo check jackets, Levi’s jeans (I mean I can’t even) and dresses with swans. Basically anything that was fun and had winter vibes since the kids don’t normally get to wear that kind of stuff. They definitely loved all of it!
One of the biggest reasons I went to Nordstrom Kids was because of their fast shipping and awesome selection. It was definitely quick enough to keep up with my ADD nature and needing items fast before our trip. They really delivered. No pun intended. What would I do without Nordstrom Kids?
Thank you Nordstrom for sponsoring this post!

We were off to visit my aunt and didn’t plan to stop by this cute little street in Laguna Beach, but the road down was too inviting to miss. The kids wanted to stretch their legs after an hour drive from LA, and this little cove was the perfect rest stop. Never mind the fact that we parked illegally, at least it was for a short time to take in the views.

I got so many questions about this top I posted on Instagram, I thought I’d give you a couple selections below. I’m always surprised how much bang for the buck a red off the shoulder top is. It looks great with blue and white denim and even a fresh out of the shower wet braid.

Shop my faves below. How was your weekend?

One thing I love about Nordstrom is their awesome selection, customer service and brands! I have SO many brands at my fingertips (mostly at 1am) on Nordstrom.com, from investment pieces to essential tee’s and affordable bandana’s. All of which I plan on stocking up on the latter for our road trip this summer. More on that later. Meanwhile, these white pants are completely on trend and very versatile. I’m loving everything laced-up from sweaters to high waist pants. See more of my picks below. Here, I styled them with stripes and totally different sunnies, making lace up pants the ultimate wardrobe staple. How do you wear yours?

I’m so happy it’s Friday! I often get asked, what do you wear with velvet or embellished heels? Well, lots of stripe ruffles and black jeans. It’s a comfy outfit for farmer’s market or brunch with our friends. Also, I’ll be cleaning my closet and getting organized. Anyone like shop my closet?

The temps are getting warmer and it’s almost festival season! Reid and I celebrated it prematurely over mushroom and truffle oil pizza in Highland Park, LA. Yum. If you’re also heading over to the festival, HERE is a great site for some hair-style inspiration because let’s face it, festivals are made for rockin’ hair styles. And yeah, they’re also totally made for new dresses. Below are four of my favorite festival ready frocks (say it fast!), but sizes are limited!

Margaret and Katherine Kleveland had a mission to provide responsibly-sourced high fashion pieces at attainable prices, which seems almost like a misnomer. But they manage to pull it off, with most of their gorgeous items under $200. Their vibe is very California-cool with loose, flattering pieces that fit most, if not all, body types. I’m already eyeing THIS blouse.  They also sell children’s ponchos that are sure to be drool-worthy on any toddler. And I kind of love supporting moms doing what they love, especially if they are genius at it. DÔEN HERE

I always gravitate toward nude sandals and these comfy wedges from Børn are no exception. I brought them on our weekend excursion to Manhattan Beach and they were perfect for the beach and walking around town. I prefer them styled with an oversize tunic and cutoffs. The nude color actually elongates the leg and I can definitely chase my almost three-year-old in them. While I can’t promise these will slow your toddler down, you can at least catch up to him without sacrificing your style. Who doesn’t want to look brunch ready? I also like these and this pair. What’s your favorite? Check them out on: www.bornshoes.com.

If you haven’t heard of M.Gemi, it’s a hidden gem of a shoe company, handmade with beautiful craftsmanship in Italy and sold direct online without a middleman to keep prices fair. I bought my first pair of M.Gemi suede boots a couple months ago and was impressed right off the bat with the gorgeous presentation, right down to the personalized tag. As you can imagine, the suede boots were buttery soft and perfect. And because they’re brilliant too, they introduce a new style of shoe every Monday for those of us with obsessive shoe habits … which is probably bad for my wallet but extremely good for my shoe fetish. Speaking of, I’m obsessed with these white Proprio pumps. They are terrific with a pleated skirt or shorts and a blouse. The latter seems to be my weekend look on repeat. Many thanks to M. Gemi for elevating it. Ps. These are limited edition – so get yours before they’re sold out!
