Yucky & Poo. Boots & Tweed

Share Button

Yucky is one way of describing how I feel.
Poo is could be another.

Anyway, you get the point. I’m feeling rough, but as a mami you don’t have a choice but to get out of bed and go about your day. In my case, with my main man Little M. 
I really didn’t feel like wearing jeans, especially because they may just be a bit snug around the waist (okay, okay! I’ve gained a few and need to lose them ASAP!) 
Today was a hang loose kind of day. So I pulled out my comfy knitted blue dress that ties at the waist, black leggings and striped white and black top. It was like being in PJ’s but better looking. I dug out my knee high low heeled boots and tweed blazer and I was good to go. And forget makeup. No way. Just a ponytail and sunnies. 
I really didn’t have anywhere to go, but I did take the little guy to get his hair cut then did some food shopping and we made Chilean alfajores, mmm!
Oh and it being love day and all, I wanted to look presentable when the Mr. got home. 
And you know when everything in the day seems to go wrong? 
Yeah, well, no chance of getting any good pics. First Little M wanted to be held. Then he wanted to be in the pictures. Then he wanted to take the pictures. It was way too much drama and I gave up. These images describe my day perfectly…hazy, blurry, and messy.
But I just had to show you how gorgeous this H&M blazer is and the boots I snagged at TJ Maxx a few months ago. I love the elbow patches and the leather collar on it – perfect to liven up any outfit. 
And the boots…oh the boots! First I’m happy I found something that fit around my calves and second they have amazing insoles which make them super comfy for walking around. 
So that’s it for me. I’m still pulling out clothes from my boxes and suitcases. So each week I discover something new. 
How was your Valentine’s Day? Did you wear anything special? 
Knitted dress: Gap
Striped long sleeve: Primark
Blazer: H&M
Boots: Arturo Chiang from TJ Maxx
Leggings: Walmart

Give Your Mama Outfit an Edge with a Skull Print Scarf

Share Button

Sometimes you just want to add a bit of edginess to a classic look, at least I do. That’s what happened last Thursday when I wore this skull print scarf that I bought at H&M for $3 from their sale bin two weeks ago. I was going on Let’s Talk Live to do my monthly segment and the dress I was going to wear was a bit too snug in the chest area — the good news is that it fits because of the 12 {Read More}

Beauty and Style Workshops for Women During Cancer Treatment

Sponsored post in collaboration with The Motherhood and Look Good Feel Better. We all like to look and feel good, that’s just natural. No one purposely sets out to do the opposite — at least I wouldn’t think they do! As a woman and mother, I’ve had my ups and my doooooowns and each time with help and support I get back up, get it sorted and move on.  Many times when we do start anew, we start by changing {Read More}

Fitness Classes and Stylish Gear for Every Stage of Motherhood

It’s never EVER easy to get back into working out after an extended ‘leave of absence.’ As mamas we are busy, yes, but depending on the age of our children, our “busy” can vary. For instance, a new mom has a variety of challenges and fills her days differently than a mother with school age kids. You get it.  So when it comes to working out, getting in shape and feeling good the same applies. Fitness classes are NOT a one size fits {Read More}

Date Night Idea: Cirque du Soleil Amaluna at National Harbor

Share Button

I received complimentary tickets — no other compensation given. Opinions are my own. The lights were turned off and the audience was still as we sat waiting for the start of Amaluna,Cirque du Soleil, when my husband leans in and whispers “Thank you. It was a good idea to get out on our own for a date night” and then of course, made a move for a good old fashioned make out session. Well, ok. Not making out, but you know, a little {Read More}

Budget Friendly Designer Shoes: Christian Siriano for Payless

This weekend was a busy one getting ready for my son’s first day of kindergarden — which aside from school supplies included new undies, socks and shoes. He wears a uniform and there are rules when it comes to color and style so I had to run all over town to get the right ones and in the end, Payless came through for me. On Sunday I went on a double date with my cousin and my husband to see Cirque {Read More}

Makeup Tips: All Day Look with Neutrogena

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. Just like clothing, makeup has different uses and can be “styled” to create a variety of looks. My day to day makeup for an all day look at home is not the same as my night time makeup, or if I am shooting a TV segment. However, “simple” doesn’t mean nada — it means using a few key products that will enhance your features {Read More}
