We all have our go-to signature looks - a combination of those pieces in our closet that we feel most comfortable in. For me it consists of skinny jeans rolled up at the hem, a comfy pair of worn-in booties or Chucks, a loose fitting tee, and during the fall/winter season, some sort of topper which usually involves an oversized cardigan or a blazer. I customarily finish off the look with my hair in loose curls, a ton of mascara, and rosy cheeks. That ladies, is my signature look. 

On those rare days when we decided to spice things up and deviate from our standard operating procedures we feel out of sorts.  When we stray from our style comfort zones it’s hard to feel confident because we don’t quite feel ourselves. We are in fact creatures of habit and tend to step back into our shells when things are different from our norm. At least that’s the case with me.

So today I prompt you to step outside of your comfort zone and embrace something new! Whether it’s a new hairstyle, a bold lip, or a different cut of jeans. Try something new and different today, who knows, maybe you’ll surprise yourself and love it!

Day 9: Self Portrait

Ever wonder what a blogger slash mom slash tired individual looks like behind the scenes? On this particular day the boy was off work so we ventured into Downtown Gilbert for tacos and churros. This is me with not a lick of makeup, sans contacts, a week old blowout, and flip flops.

If you were wondering, the tacos and churros were absolutely delicious!

Dip Dyed

Let me start off by saying that there is something to be said about finding clothing at Charming Charlie’s. This tunic is a recent Charming Charlie’s acquisition and man oh man am I in love! The delicate lace, the oversized fit perfect for my bump (and after!), and the beautiful dip dyed trim had me at hello. I obviously couldn’t leave the store without it. Very reminiscent of this Free People stunner but for less! Score! 

I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend! Did anyone do anything fun?

The Perfect Dress

photo IMG_4348_zps53a3e204.jpg

There are few truths in this world but I’m sure fashionistas everywhere can agree that finding the perfect dress is one of them. For some it may be easy to find a dress that fits like a glove, for others it may be the way a dress makes you feel that has you sold, but to get the ideal combination of finding both features in one frock can be like finding a diamond in the rough.

This dress is dare I say it, the perfect dress. I’m disappointed in myself for not appreciating her nearly enough. She’s only been worn twice (TWICE) and each time I’ve blogged about how amazing she is (here and here), put here away in my closet until I see her again almost a year later. Such utter disregard for her feelings. Okay, I will now stop talking to my clothes as if they are living, breathing people with actual feelings…
