Easy peasy. My motto always. Especially while navigating toddlerhood and pre-teen world…okay, true, Mia’s only 4 but it does feel like we’ve entered her pre-teen years….anyone else with a stubborn, super smart, sassy 4 year old out there? Send me your tips on staying calm and not negotiating to have her do every single thing. Sigh. Anyway, because my life can be a little busy, I am always searching for easy ways to stay polished while having to give my look minimal thought. I love easy dresses and classic touches to create a perfect day look. This Likey dress and…

Okay, so I may have taken a literal holiday break from the blog but chances are you’ve probably already seen this J.Crew striped dress on my Instagram. Sorry if you’re tired of it…but let’s be honest, this dress is hard to get tired of. At least for me. I loved it when I saw, the first time I wore it, and even know (months later) seeing it in these photographs. It’s cotton (you guys know I’m a big cotton girl), it’s feminine, and it is so mom friendly. Pockets, cute with sneakers or sandals, and throw on a jean jacket…

I can either wear it with sandals as shown here or with my sneakers to chase my busy almost 2 year old around the park…plus bonus points for being breathable (LOVE LOVE LOVE cotton). Dress: eyelet shift dress by Madewell (sold out but similar here) Shoes: handmade…

OMG, guys! It’s cool here in Miami!! I mean, not wearing boots cool more like not sweating your makeup off cool but I’ll take it! The sunshine and the cooler air feels amazing to my skin. I love being able to walk from point A to point B without cursing the sun; I love being able to cook dinner with our windows open; I love heading to the park with my kids without feeling like we’re walking on Mars (Mars is a super hot planet in case you didn’t know). Point being, it feels really good right now in my…

Guys, I can not believe it…I’m sitting in my home in Miami writing this post. Seriously, where did the time go? My daughter, Mia, will be starting school on Monday!! What? When did my baby grow up and when did her princess costumes get replaced by a school uniform? I was always “warned” by seasoned moms that the time would fly…but when you’re in the middle of long nights, long days, and little time to yourself, it truly feels like time is dragging by. And then one day, everything seems to fall into place, the kids actually feed themselves, dressing…
