Is it Spring yet?!? I’ve definitely noticed that the nights are staying lighter for longer…THANK GOODNESS. Nope…I just checked…not until March 20th. We’ve got a ways to go, my friends. It sure felt like Spring today and I am not complaining. Also not complaining that off the shoulder everything is sticking around for 2017! I LOVE this feminine trend!

Last week I decided to take a “me” day and do a little shopping and treat myself to a pedicure. The universe must’ve known my son was going to come down with the worst stomach bug ever and made sure I would be relaxed/prepared. Because let me tell y’all that it was the worst 12 hours of my poor baby’s life. He gets cold’s every year but never has he had a throwing up flu like this. As much as I HATE being sick…seeing him like that had me wishing it was me instead of him! Ugh. Thank goodness stomach flu’s don’t last long. On a positive note…Swirl Boutique was having their annual Blue Wall Sale and I scored this Cleobella top I’ve had my eye on for a while. FYI…for my local friends…the blue wall is basically HALF of the store (at least at the Encinitas location) and is 30% off! Some items even more so! Go and check it out if you get a chance!

I had a reader ask me today what my favorite brand of jeans were and without hesitation I can say it is my 9″ Madewell High Rise Skinnies. They come in several styles/washes but these distressed jeans are my fave. I am usually always a size 27 in every other brand but in Madewell jeans I usually go down a size (these are 26’s). They have a ton of stretch to them and never bag at the knees (even after multiple wears). I HIGHLY recommend them…plus the price is right ($135 or less). Speaking of things I love, these boots are also my faves. I actually just bought them in the acorn/luggage color as well! And I would be remiss if I didn’t mention this adorable blouse from cabi’s new Spring collection…I can’t get enough of the ruffled bell sleeves!

In the beginning of the school year, I used to get my son to school at least 25 minutes early so he would have time to play before school started. I also used to make sure I had makeup on and looked presentable. Now I’m lucky if I’ve even checked the mirror to make sure I don’t have breakfast on my face before I run him into class before the bell rings. Which is the BEST news because my son absolutely loves school which has made the transition into Kindergarten SO much easier. But on two occasions now, when I was certain I wouldn’t have to get out of my car at pickup…SURPRISE…I had to get out. Once I had on my slippers which was ok because they sort of look like ugg slippers but the other time I was wearing a shirt that completely showed my bra because I had taken off my cardigan thinking no one would really see me. Talk about mortifying. Thankfully when it happened again last week, I was wearing this look! Phew. Please tell me I’m not the only one this has happened to!?!

Sporty Spice

This look is from the cabi Spring 2017 collection. I brought it with me as a backup for my fashion show intro taping but it was raining so I stuck with my original look. cabi paired it with white sneakers on the runway which was super cute but I went a little girlier and went with wedges. It still has a sporty vibe though…which I like. I don’t even remember what day it was that I snapped these pics because it feels like it’s been raining for months. We’ve got one more day of rain in the forecast and then nothing but SUNSHINE. I can’t even tell you how much I miss the sun. Anyone else?
