What I Wore : Think Pink

Is there anything more summer like than head to almost toe pink?
The easy to wear dress comes from one of my favourite online shops, Magnolia Boutique, who also happen to be a longtime sponsor of our little blog.
It fits the "I may never take it off" bill.
Comfy and versatile. 
Their chevron anywhere tote completes this wear anywhere look. 
sunglasses - Forever XXI {also love these}
earrings - c/o Hillberg and Berk
dress - c/o Magnolia Boutique
chevron tote - c/o Magnolia Boutique {only avail in black}
sandals - Nine West {no longer available / similiar}
watch - Bulova
bangles - Coach {a few seasons ago / option} + Swarovski
 This entire look is definitely joining me down south in a few weeks. 
It screams South Florida. 
Giddy just thinking about it.

Be sure to visit Magnolia Boutique and check out their entire line of incredible maxis. By far, the best selection I've seen anywhere with pricing to match.

What Kind of A Mother are You?

I can honestly say that I was never the kind of a girl who thought about having her own children one day. Of being a mother.
Of being a wife for that matter.
But, funny enough, once I did get married, I wanted to have a baby that minute.
We were married in mid-November. Isabella was born in mid-October the following year.
I will let you do the math.

My Stylish Kid : A little Bohemian

If I had to decide on one outfit to put Ava in for the rest of her time as a little girl, this {or a version of it} might be it. 
I just love a skinny jean, perfect white blouse and sandals.
The headband was an afterthought that made it all come together.
Her keeping it on all day was a bonus.
As was her making the double peace sign in said bohemian outfit.

What I Wore : Colour Blocked Neutrals

This top by Anatomie works perfectly with so many of the items already in my wardrobe.
Namely black, white + varying shades of beige. 
The line's entire concept is focused on wearable pieces made of high quality fabrics that pack effortlessly with little to no ironing required. And pair perfectly with easy separates like this stretch midi. You won't believe the price.

Smile Brilliant Review + Giveaway

Hope you're ready for a fun one today. 
And also, photographs of my face that are far, far too close up. 

I have been contemplating getting my teeth whitened for some time and did speak to my dentist about it on numerous occasions. Each time, I received the same response. Yes, we can do it. But, my teeth might be ridiculously sensitive during and potentially after treatment.
Seeing as my teeth are already sensitive, the thought of this getting any worse did not appeal to me. 
So, I never did proceed with treatment. 
Here is how my teeth looked.

What to Wear : Job Interview Ready

By now you know that this mama has found herself back at work as a few weeks ago.
In the days leading up to job interviews, I found myself somewhat ill prepared as it related to having appropriate clothing for the corporate work space. 
After being home for 4 years, everything I now owned was either too casual, too dressy or just plain too old. 
I needed to update my wardrobe with easy pieces that could work for the interview process and later, easily transition into everyday work wear without breaking the bank. 

Now, having worked corporately for over 20 years in the telecommunications industry, and watching corporate attire get less and less formal over the years, I struggled with how to go. 
For this, I recommend exploring the opportunity, the organization and the role itself. 
Below, I've given a few examples of what you might wear depending on the type of opportunity. A guideline if you will.

My Stylish Kid : Lilac

Confession time.
There are certain things that I am absolutely drawn to when it comes to Ava.
This shade of lilac is one of them.
Followed by soft sweatshirts, gingham, bows, chambray, white blouses, rompers and sparkles.
Not necessarily in that order.
