Since I found out I was pregnant, I’ve carefully treaded the fine line between over preparing and not preparing at all. Have any other first time moms experienced this phenomenon? On one side I have family and friends saying “you don’t need all that all that stuff”, “wait until the baby is born”, “you won’t use half of what you buy before the baby is…

Transitioning Into Fall – Red Gingham Dress

red gingham dress, off the shoulder dress, transitioning into summer, fall dress

Transitioning from summer to fall fashion is often a challenge. The weather can be hot, hot, hot in September, or feel like you need to get your snow boots ready.

My Love For Mesh Leggings

I’m a leggings girl. Ever since Lululemon came into my life, my leggings game has reached an unstoppable level. There is a whole section in my closet devoted to leggings (yes I’m serious). Gone are the days that leggings are ‘just for working out’. I wear leggings on the weekend, out in the evening, and dare I say, I I wear them to work (they look great…

New York Fashion Week (NYFW) is well underway. A-list designers, celebrities and fashionistas have come together in New York City to celebrate spring/summer trends for 2017.

Since I’m not at at NYFW,…
