I’m sure most of you have that leather or faux leather jacket in your closet that has been tried and true each season. For me a leather jacket is like an old friend. I throw it on with most anything, every season, spring or fall. I am even wearing a leather jacket tonight to an event with a tweed mini dress.

As Mother’s Day is right around the corner I am feeling all sorts of emotions. Most importantly proud. Proud to say I am a mom. It’s like I am part of some really cool club.

After 9 months of prep for baby and almost 5 months of real life stuff I stand a little taller. I carry myself with more grace and I often stop and think how incredible it is to be a mom.

In the past I have been wary of flats & lace up’s. The reason being is that I didn’t feel that flats did anything for my height (I am about 5’6..5’7 on a good day). Lace up’s would cut my leg off and is the opposite of elongating.

Walking into spring with new insights and an open mind. With this open mind I was cruising Etsy looking at cute baskets for running around town.

In the mist of Coachella week madness I am posting April Beauty. This month is all about beauty from the inside out. I feel we focus so much on the outside that we forget what we put in our body shows on the outside.

With simplistic shoulder baring silhouettes appearing on the runway it’s only fitting that I would gravitate towards swimwear as ready-to-wear. This Amaio suit with it’s clean lines works perfectly with an unexpected bottom like denim.

This weekend my husband and I went on our first family picnic with Lola. Our weekends are much different now with a babe. From what we bring to what I wear.

It’s been so interesting to me to see my style evolve over the last year. I have started purchasing items that are staples. I think long and hard about what I will bring into my closet. I only want items that excite me. I actively search for pieces that will take me thru a few seasons.
