I absolutely LOVE clothes, but you wouldn’t know it by my usual 24/7 attire around here. I’m lucky most days if I change out of my workout clothes. NO, I don’t stay in them AFTER I workout. I stay in them before I even attempt (or even make it TO) working out! ha! I know, bad bad! What Not To Wear would have a field day with me!
I don’t know if I’ve had my head in the sand or what, but I recently discovered Emerson Made. SOOO right up my alley! It has that preppy, slightly sexy, school girlish, but casual vibe I really like.
Anywho, I think I’m in love!

Hope you had a fabulous fun filled weekend too! Any day now Southern California MIGHT get Summer weather. It rained on our date night Saturday….go figure.
I spoke with a girlfriend earlier today about how our wardrobes have changed since having kids. No, its not because our bodies have changed and we can’t fit in to the same kinds of clothes we use to. Actually I personally haven’t had a problem with that..THANK GOD! The problem is I don’t get out much. Haha! No really, I DON’T GET OUT MUCH! I’ve actually gone a full stinkin’ week in the past before I even left the house. Not a proud moment.
But as mommies we sort of all develop our own personal mommy style. Someone else might have their uniform they always wear, but when you see them you think, “Wow, look how put together she is…I wish I could dress like that”. Well, little do we know, but that chick who’s outfit you love has probably worn it twice already this week and wore it last week too. Doesn’t matter…you still envy her style.
Well, my good girlfriend complemented me on my style and how I still “have it”. What a super awesome compliment I think! So here I’m going to share the top 10 things I love for me now that I’m a mom and a stay at home one at that. And yes, I wear the same outfit twice in one week…sometimes even three times.
1) True Religion Stella Skinny Jean in dark blue wash
LOVE LOVE LOVE these jeans! I never in a million years thought I would love skinny jeans, but I do. I’ve tried to buy other brands of skinny jeans and I can’t do it. There is something about this cut that just flatters a girl with some thigh meat. And TR jeans have a wide seam on the outer sides that really thin the leg out more. Totally flattering! Wear them in warm weather with flip flops or ballet flats and in the winter with flat boots. For a night out I just throw on my platform pumps and I’m good to go.
These little sweeties are from J.Crew. I love a good metallic sandal. Perfect for a slightly dressier look in the warmer months.
One of my husbands’ childhood friends finally popped the question to his lovely girlfriend a few months ago. We were and weren’t expecting it…but we’re so glad it did! Since the grooms’ family has a home in Sayulita, Mexico we were pretty sure they might decide to get married there. Well, the word came down and YIPPIE…they are set to be married in Mexico sometime next Fall.
Just recently I got an email from one of my fav designers Christiane Celle of Calypso with their new 2010 goodies. Pretty, pretty, pretty!!! I am such a sucker for yummy sorbet colors, bohemian prints and lots of girly details. I’m going to be good and wait for a sale.
