Black and Blue

photo IMG_7559_zpsae2a5a0f.jpg

I’m not a big fan of following fashion’s ‘rules’. No white after Labor Day? Sequin and sparkles only for the evenings? Never wear black and navy together? Let’s throw these ridiculous rules out the proverbial window, shall we? That very last rule, never mixing black and navy, is just so antiquated! News flash: rules are meant to be broken, especially this one! Both colors are neutrals thus making them free game when pairing them with other colors, especially each other. 

Pro Tip: Nervous to try the trend? Try a subtle pairing of opaque black tights, a navy dress and equestrian-esque boots for chic, yet simple look perfect for Fall!

In Memory

photo IMG_7378_zpsf7d6ad63.jpg

Nothing like a t-shirt dress, a little chambray, the perfect navy blazer and classic chucks to get you through day full day of sigh seeing. While many of the items I packed were great contenders for the MVP award, I’d have to say my trusty chambray won hands down. Seriously, it was incorporated into almost all of my SF looks! Chambray everyday for the win;)

On this particular day on our trip to San Francisco we did a ton of sight seeing. One of the stops in our adventures for the day was the Ms. Doubtfire house. Both the boy and I absolutely love the movie so it was a no brainer to stop and snap some pics. Tragically the next day news broke out that the comedic genius behind the movie and many more, Robin Williams, had passed. It’s so sad to know that someone you grew up watching and admiring is no longer here. I’m happy I was able to capture a tiny bit of my childhood and will keep the memory of the visit on those steps with me.

Adult Fun

 photo IMG_7105_zpsb52bf7de.jpg

This past weekend the fella and I enjoyed a much needed day date. Since Grandma is in town for the summer, she was kind enough to babysit Remy while Kevin and I met up with friends (who also have a little one and don’t get out much either) and attended the Great Indoor Beer & Wine Festival. Adult fun at its best, my friends! We had such a great time taste testing all the craft beers and wines and it felt so nice to partake in adult conversation without the interruption of a cute little ‘hi’. Although I did miss that little voice. We proceeded to enjoy a drunken dinner at Denny (so much fried food), followed by hittin’ the movies to catch a showing of Sex Tape. So funny! 

How did you enjoy your weekend?

Well I hope everyone enjoyed their 3-day weekend! This girl right here sure did and I’m so sad to see it end but this next weekend is going to be epic as we will be celebrating Remy’s first birthday! I’ve got quite the week ahead of me, lots of cleaning, last minute planning and organizing still needs to get done. But let’s discuss the outfit, shall we?

I wore this little number for dinner with the family on Saturday. I wanted something easy but with a little spunk and if print mixing doesn’t do the trick, I don’t know what does y’all. I kept the colors in the same wheelhouse, as not to garner too many stares from restaurant goers not equipped with the knowledge of what is print mixing. I still got some stares but at least I thought I looked cute, right?

Happy Monday friends!
