Denim

It’s been hard getting back into the saddle of my week since getting back from Chicago, school variety shows, homework and everything in between is taking up my time. One of my favorite style savers lately is a silky trench! I’m obsessed. It works out great with the chilly weather we’ve been having. Happy cloudy Wednesday from SoCal! I also talk about trenches in the Mother’s Day guide if you missed it.

Casual Friday is everyday for me as a mom. So here’s a comfy bodysuit, jeans, mules and go-to leather jacket. All comfy enough to chase my favorite superhero. Happy Tuesday!

We’re headed to Mexico today, so I’ll be wearing lots of hats in the sun by the pool. Can’t wait. In the meantime, I’m sharing my Spring uniform: cutoffs, a white cold shoulder top and flats. I’m crushing hard on hats and you should too. Here’s to some fun in the sun with hubby. Stay up to date on Instagram.

I usually have 5.5. minutes to find a jacket and some shoes and jet out of the house. I usually am sporting something like this, an off the shoulder top, jacket for chilly nights and mornings and flats!

Last week, we visited the Pasadena Library and it was simply stunning. We didn’t have long to explore, but we were able to peruse the wood paneled reading rooms, awesome kid space, and old fireplaces, so much charm. I can’t wait to take Reid back there! Also, the outdoor espresso bar is a cute little destination that’s quiet and somewhat private. Definitely worth a visit. Here are 4 more places worth a visit in LA:

5 Cold Shoulder tops under $100


You probably already know, I collect denim. I’m pretty picky about the wash and fit, but I found a couple faves, some of which are under $100! Don’t forget to size up since they arrive pretty stiff. I’m definitely bringing a couple pairs to Mexico with Reid and I, as I love how they look with ruffles and going out tops. A good pair of jeans is like a good friend, bring them everywhere, and treat them well. See more denim faves I update daily on my shop page.

A get the most questions about my jeans, so I’m sharing some top jeans I love and under $100! Yes – don’t delay. Sizes are limited. Generally, I like to have a good pair of black, denim, and colored jeans on hand to tackle any outfit. I’m really loving jeans with feminine tops and cardigans for when the weather transitions. What are your favorites?

While it may seem like Abercrombie + Fitch is catering more to the younger set (think tweens and teens), a recent shopping trip there was an eye-opener. Abercrombie + Fitch has stepped it up and I’m loving all the colors, enviable basics, and great classic styles that made it so popular in the first place. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll notice I’ve been wearing this trench coat on repeat. Thankfully, this taupe beauty happened to arrive at my doorstep during the heart of LA’s crazy cool and wet February weather. Also, these jeans and gingham top, like most Abercrombie + Fitch items are under $100.
Oh, and did I mention the kids’ section? The selection is melt-your-heart good.  The darling shorts are still darling after lots of active wear–and still in one piece, without holes. They’re cute AND shenanigan-proof. Can you ask for more? And I was more than happy that he actually liked his hat well enough to keep it on. His dad is even jealous of that hat.  It’s the little things in life that make you smile, right? Thank you Abercrombie + Fitch for sponsoring this post and reintroducing me to the brand and new styles. Go find some new favorites!

This week is all about cozy yet chic layers and this look is no exception. I’ve never been cozier. I will have taught you all my cozy layering tricks just in time for bathing suit weather. Yes, the rumor is 80 degree weather is coming up soon to SoCal. Just in time for my kids to start begging for more beach days. Speaking of beach days, it’s a great time to shop for swim suit because it’s sale time! Shopbop has an annual sale that lasts till 3/4/17. Use code GOBIG17, for up to 25% off. I linked some favorite swim picks for our upcoming Mexico trip. Happy Shopping!

I get asked a lot about my denim and denim cutoffs are no exception. When we first moved to LA, we took the family to the Silverlake farmer’s market. We got flowers, fruit and denim cutoffs. Definitely not on the list, but who doesn’t love an unexpected find?

1.Vintage LEVIS  I get mine at Silverlake Farmer’s Market, check your vendors at your local market, you never know what you’ll find!

2. AEO Denim x High Rise Shortie was the best fit and length overall and did I mention under $55? High-fives all around.

3. Topshop I sized up and overall the best high rise. These look the closest to the ones I found at the market.

4. Levis have these in black, and white.

5. Asos has cute ones, and these  and these are no exception.

6. One Teaspoon I like the Bandits and Le Wolves – which fit true to size.
