Okay, thank you LNA for making the most perfect fitting tops! This is my newest favorite tank in the world, perfect fit and the perfect shade of pink! I've already been living in it since I got it.

Amazing pants for Nashville's hot summers and this basic LNA v-neck is my current favorite summer tee - so light and airy!

The parks are so greatly abandoned on days like this, that I love to take them over with my kids -- we don't mind getting a little drizzle on us, turns out we are waterproof. I am all about practical comfort on rainy days... staying cozy and laid back. It has been rather warm here in MN but I was glad to have this cooler day in the mix and get the grass brightened up with all that rain!

Actually have to admit that my dad kind of inspired me to drag out this old Ralph Lauren skirt when his wise words of fashion were spoken "EVERYBODY looks good in camo."  And well I am not impressed with my dad's fashion views, I am starting to think he may be onto something. In any case, if you even meet him please do not tell him that he may be right -- or that he influenced my choice when getting dressed. I am starting to think that I also need this sweater in the shade meridian -- I don't plan on living without it for long!

can we still be friends

 Here is another look at a studio session with my friend Kylee. She has such a talent viewing things and an even better talent for somehow making me look thinner on film. We were so obsessed with this color scheme that we decided to ditch the set and make it all about the lovely clothes. I so wanted that leather shag rug -- if it didn't weigh 100 lbs I would have snuck it in my purse!

 I am so excited to share this first look with you guys! I had a great opportunity sneak up on me this past week. A good friend of mine asked if I would be willing to do a collaboration with her. I would do the styling and she would do the photography and we would work together on the set/ vibe. It was such a great honor that she thought of me. There will be more of these to come so get ready!

 Luckily she was super great at directing so I didn't come across so awkward, well I don't look awkward at all actually!!!  She even made me un-hide my face and smile at times **shriek**!!!  Who knew I could look kind of normal in pictures!!! Thanks KYLEE LEONETTI  for making me do this, so excited for our other sessions.

ps this was in her studio which is so sick! The walls are to die for!

Loving denim with a pop of color lately. And of course my favorite LnA tee.

Ok so clearly I am on a skirt kick thanks to comfy numbers like this from LNA. I love that it feels like a tee and that I don't get bothered if it has a wrinkle or 2 in it. The effortless feel of it makes it surprisingly dimensional. Leave it to me to make it less girly by throwing on some Sperry's and an oversized denim shirt... see that makes it functional for the park!

What can I say, I love hoodies and would live in them. This one by LNA is by far my favorite! Perfect paired with lightweight shorts on a summer day.

I am not one to wear mini skirts usually, but when I saw this one in LNA clothing's summer lookbook I fell in love with it! The color was just too good and I am picky about my pinks! It is so comfortable and BONUS my husband was a big fan of me showing my legs!

Also, I am not at all sure why I am making the "blue steele" face in the first photo, but if it worked for Zoolander than I guess it works for me.

As much as I love the colored jean trend, neons and bolds just aren't really for me some days. I think finding muted colors makes it a much easier trend to try and really goes with a lot more. It works best for me when clothes can be dressed up or dressed down. Today I went for dressed up :)

 I am so digging cropped pants right now. I think they have a good elongating effect for some reason which is surprising. These hit my ankle bone when they are down, but I have a tendency to roll my pants in the summer, maybe it makes the whole thing feel more effortless. A little pop of color is always great when an outfit is on the neutral side plus I had to girly this up since I was going without makeup.  These shoes are about the only red thing that I own! Perhaps I should consider owning more colored shoes! I live in this basic lna tee! It is the perfect fit and their heather grays are just SOOOOO good... definitely a must!

Mothers Day

Mothers Day is this weekend and if you are stuck on what to wear for brunch we have you covered. You don't have to over due it. You are probably going somewhere fancy, but if not you will be the cutest girl at your moms house. And if your life is anything like ours and you are the mom that is being celebrated, it will most likely mean that you will end up at a park, obviously doing what you do best, being mom! No matter your plans we have some cheap finds that are comfy enough for any activities your day brings.
