Raise your hand if you could use a little pop of color to brighten up your mama uniform? This is my go to look to run the kids to school, errands or  meet up with clients for coffee. I've rounded up a few of my favorites staples on sale here. The sweater is from sheinside and you guys went gaga over the tunic dress from them. They have some fun deals & steals going on so hop on over and give them a visit (be sure to tell me what you scoop up). Check out the flash sale going on for the next few days on the scarf and wallet on my Stella & Dot boutique. These and other sparkly goodies are perfect for a early little holiday shopping. What is your go-to fall uniform?

Shift into Stripes


 Pattern Shift Dress| Sheinside.com, Shoes | Carlos Santana, Aria Necklace | Stella & Dot, Chandelier Earrings | Stella & Dot, Tote bag | (similiar) Stella & Dot

If I told you this dress was $24 would you believe me? I could hardly believe it myself. $24 including shipping to my doorstep in 5 days. When this bright patterned shift arrived it made me happy happy! Give this girl a print and pattern all day. I will say this one is on the smallish side. I am wearing a L (eek!) so bigger gals, I am on the lookout for similar styles in more size ranges. What makes this dress so effortlessly easy is the rolled sleeve and the low neckline (perfect for layering on lots of pretty jewelry) I can't get enough of this. And these booties. Can you say comfortable (even for chasing after Thomas the train obsessed Henry). Now that the weather is getting cooler, I throw it on over boyfriend jeans or leggings. A patterned tunic is a mama's best friend. Seriously, don't judge me when you see this worn about 15 different ways.

Stella & Dot for Breast Cancer Awareness


Sharing two of my favorite times of the year! Fall and this fabulous holiday season. Kicking it off in October by doing good with Stella & Dot's Breast Cancer Awareness Boutique. One of the things I love so much about being a stylist is being able to use my job to give back to others and be of service to others. It's like I jump out of bed each day with so much energy to sell more Breast Cancer Awareness bracelets. This year my goal is 100 bracelets. Pretty scary but I am going for it! This is so near and dear to my heart and I love sharing our NEW Breast Cancer Awareness bracelets that give 100% of the net profits to benefit the Noreen Fraser Foundation. Noreen Fraser, NFF’s Founder and CEO, was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2001 and has been living with Stage IV metastatic breast cancer since 2003. Noreen’s dream is that no other woman will have to endure the fight she has fought.

Do you know someone that has been affected by this terrible disease? If you would like to support this cause by shopping the Breast Cancer Boutique, visit my site to shop, donate and make an impact today.

Toddler night time routine

Mothers of toddlers, raise your hands if your once peacefully down in the crib at 8:00 at night toddler has turned your evening "me time" into a screaming, running, rat race once you transition to the big boy/girl bed? I know your pain, trust me. I want to share something that has really helped my family. We are really big on routine and I have found that a visual is really helpful with getting my youngest to bed. I'm not saying its perfect but he loves being able to go to the chart and check what comes next. I award stickers for completing a task and it helps prepare his mind for bed. I added a morning chart as well to cut down on some of the morning chaos that comes with getting out of the house as well. Hopefully these will help smooth out your evening and morning routine. I have made these available to download and the larger size will be be up in my shop soon!

Let me know what you think and which one is your favorite?
