It’s back to school time and the kids need new shoes again! I can’t believe my oldest is in a size 7.5 right now, how? She was a toddler eating dirt out of the back porch planters like yesterday. I’m not sure where time goes, but I do know where I like to buy shoes.

Mom tip: If you sign up for their rewards program and shop their seasonal sales, you save money. This is key when you have 5 children.

I’ve worn New Balance since high school, so it’s only fitting I buy New Balance for my kids. After all, the brand is notorious for its lightweight. quality, and classic style. Back to school is a great time to get your kids new quality sneakers for the fall. My kids absolutely love their new sneakers and I feel good giving them sneakers with support and comfort. I can barely keep up with them lately! Thankfully, their sneakers can. Clearly, DSW is a shopping destination for sneakers, athletic shoes and great selection.

Nite Jogger (size 9) in white/pink

This lightweight Nite Jogger, originally meant to stand out at night, is a perfect day statement that carries your look from the gym to shopping with friends. The colors were the first thing that drew me to the shoes. I LOVE the combination of pinks and mauve. It brings out my all black ensemble underneath my trench. The latter of which I’ll admit is my go-to outfit. I was pleasantly surprised with the complimentary fast shipping from Finish Line. The shoes are lightweight and fresh for spring. As for style, its a marriage between the dad sneaker and a chic running shoe. Stand out this spring in the hottest IT shoe. Get it before it sells out!

Who’s headed somewhere cold to wear these layers? If you’re not the one that raised your hand, take heart, this is a great time to pat yourself on the back for buying now and wearing later. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale items are mostly fall items and they go back up to regular retail prices August 5. I love wearing sneakers and flats especially today carrying so much weight at 29 weeks! I surprised myself that I could still jump, haha! Jump on these pieces now before they sell out!

Most of LA does laid back chic better than most of the planet, so if you’re looking for some of the coolest sneakers around, LA is your place. I remember seeing Golden Goose Brand (GGB) when we first moved to the LA area 2 years ago, and scoffing at the price but liking the look. So, the Look. Here are some tips:

Keep it balanced. If I do sweatpants, I try and pair it with a nicer tee and cool earrings. Don’t wear a pajama shirt and bottom and expect to feel pulled together. That isn’t even worth the comfort.

My favorite laid back outfit is this: well fitting sweatpantsGGB sneakers, distressed tee and extra chic sunglasses. You will look like you didn’t try, and isn’t that the goal?

What are some good pairings? Wear sweats with a suede jacket or long cardigan. If you choose a tee underneath, knot it on the side for a more tailored look.

Lastly, if you’re in the market for sneakers, I’m loving these from Luisa Via Roma, a one stop shop for all things luxury with super fast shipping. With a price tag ranging from $400-$600, they’re an investment. But once you break them in they’re super comfortable and chic. I’m confident in the cost per wear on these babies.

Which are your faves?

What’s easier on the weekend than a racer back cotton dress and sneakers? I love it also paired with pointy heels and a blazer. It’s a long to-do list as it’s my last weekend in LA, before we head to Chicago. So, easy dresses and sneakers it is. And did I mention this dress is only $59? I can’t wait for tonight’s Cinco de Mayo party than packing. Happy weekend!


Sometimes cozy looks a lot less like a bathrobe and a lot more like a cozy off the shoulder sweater and jeans, am I right? See more of how to master the cozy look HERE. Happy Humpday!

But if we’re searching for the silver lining–and we are–then the best part about Back to School is the shopping. Since my littles have uniforms, we have fun finding pieces that suit each child’s personality and style. A big hit with my middle little were these Steve Madden
JSM1 sneakers: purple, covered in glitter, and perfect for climbing and running. Since purple glitter really isn’t my thing, I went with the versatile Steve Madden “Austin” chelsea boot. It is a well-known fact that in shopping, everyone should win. Shop our look from Steve Madden Kids at Dillard’s. 

Thank you Steve Madden for partnering on this post.

That’s where I was hair-wise. A couple months ago we cut four inches off, mostly split ends, in the name of keeping my hair healthy. It was painful, but in the back of my head, I knew I could get length be it clip-ins or extensions. I ended up doing the former with advising from my stylist. We got 18″ color matched to my hair. And to help it blend, my stylist cut both my hair and the extensions to make it fill in nicely. It is fun and somewhat easy to install and great for shoots or events. Or take them out when I don’t want the weight. I mean, who doesn’t like options? Forward any more of your questions and I’ll try and answer them.

Happy Friday!
