Stripes on Stripes

Happy Wednesday loves! Hope your week is going well. Had a great weekend and the best part of it was my son's early birthday celebration with his friends. One of the fun parts about motherhood is planning birthday celebrations for your kids and since I only have one child sometimes I go overboard, but this year was more low key. On his actual birthday this past Monday, we started off by going to breakfast and then having another celebration with just him and I. He loves to have a celebration with his friends and then a time to have me all to himself.

I had more birthday cake than I care to admit, LOL. The outfit I am wearing is a subtle pattern mix with stripes on stripes in classic black and white. The patterns I tend to wear the most are animal print, stripes and polka dots and sometimes I wear all three in one outfit.

I definitely believe that true style is not defined by a name brand or how much something cost. I pair moderately priced pieces with high end pieces for a nice balance and I tend to favor classic pieces that never go out of style. A lot of my wardrobe consists of clothes I have had for years, but because the pieces are not trendy, you cannot tell that I have had them forever. I usually add the fun element into my looks with accessories, but keep the clothing simple and classic. I play with trends every once in a while.

Do you like stripes?

Have an amazing week!

Feeling Orange

Happy Thursday loves! Almost forgot to post this week. Actually today it is a scorching 91 degrees, so the outfit I am wearing was worn before this heatwave. I am actually packing away my fur because it looks like it is time to break out my cute spring and summer outfits:-)  This weekend I am planning to celebrate my sons birthday and planning to have a blast with him on his spring break next week. That means nonstop fun and of course with me and my foodie in training, lots of good eats!

Since my son's officially birthday will take place on spring break, I had planned on taking cupcakes to his school like I usually do and his teacher told me that bringing treats was not allowed in her class because it makes  the other kids whose parents don't do it for their birthdays, feel bad. So she has one big birthday celebration at the end of the year for the whole class. I was a little bummed that I couldn't bring cupcakes, but my little guy still has a great celebration coming this weekend that will knock his socks off:-)

Are you ready for summer? Today I am participating in a fun link up over at Happiness at Midlife. Join the link up here

Loving the nice weather, but I can do without 91 degrees. For me 75-80 is perfect weather. Not too hot and not too cold.

I keep wanting to get back to my regular posting schedule because I have so many great recipes to post and great restaurants to share with you, but since I am so busy these days,one post a week might be my new normal until things slow down a little.

Have a great week!

Neutral and Black

Happy Wednesday! Just a quick post. Busy Busy Busy, but the best kind of busy:-)  Looking forward to a few fun events this weekend. Hope your week is off to a good start. Most people associate bold color and animal print as a part of my signature look, which is definitely true, but I also love neutral colors because they blend so seamlessly with everything and are timeless.

Today I am wearing a simple ensemble of taupe and black and I love this strappy cage heels. I used to have a white pair many years ago and they were one of my favorite shoes to wear in the spring and summer.

These black pants are becoming my favorite go to pants because they are so comfortable and I wear them often. These heels and bag are one of my favorite parts of this outfit.

Enjoy the week!
