the one with neon’s in spring

May’s series was easy for me to decide on. All I had to do was look in my closet and I saw tons of bright colors. So considering summer is practically here a series full of bright colors is perfect. Actually narrowing it down to only 5 outfits was rather difficult. Thank God May has an extra Monday!  Surprisingly, quite a few of my bright colors are older. This tank is one of them! It’s from the gap a few years ago. I rarely spend a lot of money on trends, but neon is one of those that goes in and out quite often. And neon’s in spring is one of my favorite trends!

Another thing that is one of my favorites are these espadrilles! My grandmother used to wear espadrilles all the time. So I started to think of them as old lady shoes. But all of a sudden I saw these beauties and decided to jump on the espadrille train. I’m never going back you guys. These are maybe the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn. I mean flip flops are obviously more comfortable, but these shoes are super great.

5 pieces 1 outfit: baseball cap

Hey friends! 5 pieces 1 outfit is a twice monthly series where we feature 5 pieces that bring together 1 perfect outfit. It doesn’t take a lot of time, money, and or pieces to create a fashionable look that anyone can create. 5 pieces is all you need to make another outfit killer. First, I find it’s best to have a theme so you have a place to build from. That can be a color combo or maybe even an event. But most of all you just need a good base piece. This week’s theme is a baseball cap.

the one with Jord watches

Do you guys wear watches everyday? It seems to be something most people do. But I rarely wore watches before I became a mom. Of course, now everything is on a time schedule. I’m always checking the clock to see if it’s time for a diaper change or time to each or time to go swim class or time for nap! This meant I needed to get a new one. Shopping is never disappointing, but I had a few requirements.

Here in Florida it officially feels like Summer, and yet they tell me it’s Spring. So what that means is  – you sweat as soon as you walk outside. And it’ll only get worse from here until September. So I needed something breathable to limit the amount of sweat. Also something lightweight to not weigh me down and make me feel even more uncomfortable. But I also wanted something modern, fun, chic, and fairly neutral. Jord wood watches was the perfect place to go for all those requirements.

I love the modern wood band is totally breathable and lightweight. It barely feels like I have anything on at all. Plus it’s so easy to find your perfect size so you don’t have to worry about slipping and sliding. I chose the mint background because as we all know I’m on a bright colors kick, but they have stunning neutral colored faces as well. They even have some with rose gold accents, and plenty of menswear options as well. This one is my favorite! I can just imagine how handsome it would look on my husbands wrists as he goes to work in his favorite navy suit. Father’s day gifts?

Weekday mornings are so simple to get ready now – a simple tee, linen shorts, earrings, easy sandals, and my watch. I never have to worry about a color scheme or the other metals I have on. The watch ties everything together into a simple, modern, stylish, and perfect for every type of weather outfit.

Of course, the best part is I’ve got a giveaway for you! Enter here for your chance at $100 off any Jord watch. Plus everyone who enters will get a code for $25 off!

the one with the lime green maxi skirt

May’s series was easy for me to decide on. All I had to do was look in my closet and I saw tons of bright colors. So considering summer is practically here a series full of bright colors is perfect. Actually narrowing it down to only 5 outfits was rather difficult. Thank God May has an extra Monday!  Surprisingly, quite a few of my bright colors are older. This lime skirt is one of those! It’s two years old so all the skirts below are not the exact. Of course, no one else makes a lime green maxi skirt. It’s an odd color, but the ones listed are great.

But everytime I wear it I get major compliments, and it’s easy to dress. It’s even brighter in person so you have to tone the top down with neutrals. This jacket is too hot for Florida right now, but I know most places are still spring jacket weather. This is the perfect jacket for that! Plus it’s vegan leather . . . I feel like Leo would be so proud of me which is what I base half of my decisions on.

the one with bright silk shorts

May’s series was easy for me to decide on. All I had to do was look in my closet and I saw tons of bright colors. So considering summer is practically here a series full of bright colors is perfect. Actually narrowing it down to only 5 outfits was rather difficult. Thank God May has an extra Monday!  Surprisingly, quite a few of my bright colors are older. Since I started with my new yellow peplum shirt, this week I’m mixing old and new! These bright silk shorts are a few years old, but I paired it with my new all good things tee.

These have been my favorite shorts for a few years, but I was able to find a few bright colored shorts I like just as well. They have the 2 most important c’s – color and comfort. Because nothing is better than colorful, fashionable, comfortable pieces! Those two things together make them perfect to dress up or dress down. I’m a casual gal so dressing them down is my favorite, of course. My new perforated sperry’s are the perfect addition to do just that.

the one with yellow peplum

May’s series was easy for me to decide on. All I had to do was look in my closet and I saw tons of bright colors. So considering summer is practically here a series full of bright colors is perfect. Actually narrowing it down to only 5 outfits was rather difficult. Thank God May has an extra Monday!  Surprisingly, quite a few of my bright colors are older. But I decided to start with this new yellow peplum. You know I’m a fan of reusing what’s already in your closet tho so we’ll get to the older ones later!

I never thought I would look good in a peplum top. Ya know, because I have a bit of a spare tire. I always thought the ruffles of fabric there would just make the ruffles of flab stick out more. ha! Maybe it does, but for some reason the simplicity of this top spoke to me. I had to have it. Wearing it with this trio of necklaces might seem like a bad idea since I carry a child around most of my days. But Jack doesn’t seem interested in my necklaces so far. So basically I have to wear them while I can.

the one with a floral romper

April’s series is ‘how to wear and dress up your shorts’. When I was younger, I made the assumption you could only wear shorts for casual events or active events. Even now I see myself and my friends struggling to figure out how to dress them up a little. After 2 years in Florida, I have a pretty good idea considering I’m lucky enough to wear them year round. Since summer is right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to share a few easy outfits to dress up your shorts! This weeks post is all about this floral romper.

I’ve never wanted to wear rompers before since I’m borderline plus size. I say borderline because the top half isn’t the bottom is. They hit the tummy area a little weird. But this floral romper made me fall in love enough to take a risk. Guess what!? I’ll probably never buy another romper unless I fall this in love again. Rompers are an easy way to dress up your shorts and this one is incredibly comfortable. But, guys, they are a pain to get off when you need to breastfeed or pee.

the one with Disney Spring’s

April’s series is ‘how to wear and dress up your shorts’. When I was younger, I made the assumption you could only wear shorts for casual events or active events. Even now I see myself and my friends struggling to figure out how to dress them up a little. After 2 years in Florida, I have a pretty good idea considering I’m lucky enough to wear them year round. Since summer is right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to share a few easy outfits to dress up your shorts! I live 2 hours from disney. So the third outfit in this series features the perfect outfit to wear around Disney Spring’s.

Living so close to Disney definitely has it’s perks, Disney Spring’s is one of them. Now that a sugarboo and anthro are there it might be my favorite. It’s such a stylish area I always feel the need to look a little nicer than usual, but I do a lot of walking as well. So comfort, casual, and fashionable are the key words for the day. This floral top has been my favorite for about two years. But I’ve got several similar ones down below for you!

Fun fact, my 10 (almost 11) year old nephew -MeSean – is the photographer for these fabulous photos 🙂

the one with the off shoulder trend

April’s series is ‘how to wear and dress up your shorts’. When I was younger, I made the assumption you could only wear shorts for casual events or active events. Even now I see myself and my friends struggling to figure out how to dress them up a little. After 2 years in Florida, I have a pretty good idea considering I’m lucky enough to wear them year round. Since summer is right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to share a few easy outfits to dress up your shorts! The second outfit in this series features the off shoulder trend that is everywhere this season.

I LOVE this top which I purchased at my favorite online store shopbop. It’s a a bit of a statement piece withe the sleeves so the accessories are simple. That necklace is my new favorite because it keeps double duties. It’s also a great teether for Jack. He’s showing a lot of interest in my jewelry so I have to be cautious of what I wear. He is also teething like crazy so this necklace is the perfect choice most days.

My sandals are also new. I have to be honest. I felt weird spending $44 on flip flops. But the quality and price per wear won out, and I will never regret this decision, ya’ll. Get you some nice flip flops!

the one with dressing up your shorts

For the past 2 months, I’ve had a monthly series of outfits that all focus on one thing. The first was nursing outfits and the second was easy, classics. I’ve decided to keep up with it. First and foremost, you all seemed to enjoy it. But it also backs up one of the things I try to hold true to here on the blog and in my closet. That being buying things you can re-wear often. That’s real life, and I want my blog to show my real life. I love the idea of a capsule wardrobe, but it’s not quite realistic for me right now. 6 months ago my body went through a very drastic event (childbirth) and it’s still changing. Plus, I’m still getting used to those changes. So my wardrobe will be changing for a few more months as I figure out what works and what doesn’t.

Until then I’ll be wearing lots of the things that I already know do work. One of those things are these shorts from old navy. So April’s series will be ‘how to wear shorts’. When I was younger, I thought you could only wear shorts for casual events or active events. Even now I see myself and my friends struggling to figure out how to dress them up a little. After 2 years in Florida, I have a pretty good idea considering I’m lucky enough to wear them year round. Since summer is right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to share a few easy outfits to dress up your shorts!

The first is my favorite white peasant top that I’ve had for years. I got it at Charlotte Russe years and years ago. This is my favorite way to wear it – sweet and simple. This outfit is perfect for date night, dinner with friends, brunch with the girls – anything where you need to be a little nicer than casual but not business.
