White Denim + Floral

 My outfit details: Joie top, Eileen Fisher jeans c/o, Alexander Wang sandals, Celine bag, Prada sunglasses, Kate Spade earrings, MAC lipstick

A very happy Tuesday to everyone! The best thing about having a two-year old who has suddenly become very strong willed, is that it gets you to do things that you otherwise wouldn't do. Lately Capri has been persistent on getting us both outside, so I have taken advantage of this to go and see all of the beautiful scenes of spring near our home, such an inspiration time of year! All the bright colors and flowers fall in line with the classic spring combo that I am wearing today, white denim and floral. The jeans are Eileen Fisher, they fit cute and are very comfortable (size down). Eileen Fisher is a great brand for basics, such as a simple tee, cute denim or comfy sweaters. Hope you are all finding time to get outside and enjoy this time of year! Have a great day!

Gearing up for Mothers Day with White House Black Market

My outfit details: White House Black Market top and pants | Capri: Gap dress

Capri is now old enough to somewhat understand the significance of Mother's Day. She knows that it is a special day for mothers like me and my mom. Best of all, she thinks that it is her day too because she has her toy babies, who I must say receive the absolute best care from her. She will be an incredible mother some day, but not anytime soon!
While I love to be spoiled on mothers day, it is even more fun to celebrate my own mother and grandmothers. So I asked Capri what she wanted to make for her two Grammies? She said make "tookies" (cookies) and paint a "piturr" (picture), as you might guess, this is a response to a lot of questions, but this time I thought it was a great idea! When at home I love to be comfortable, and one of the places I go for my clothes around the house is White House Black Market, they have classic pieces that can be dressed up or down. This top and these pants are perfect for staying in, baking, and then heading out to brunch or on a date. Whats better than that for a busy mom? Have a great day and check out the gorgeous Blue Hue collection from White House Black Market.
