Chambray Everyday

Dear Diary,
It's time for another confession.  I'm human and yes, I REPEAT my outfits when necessary.  And lately, necessary comes pretty often.... So on the days that I need to run out of the door in a heart beat, I throw on my Chambray shirt.  This basic shirt quickly became my favorite piece of clothing, in fact, I called it my saving grace.  Somehow with its casual and slightly rugged image, it can make a frantic mom look (nearly) chic and (almost) effortless even on a bad hair day.  So I salute to whoever brought this timeless and all American style back in trend.

Pants: Zara

Spring Trousers

Dear Diary,
  If I may say, pants are under rated.  When you are getting dressed for the day how often do you pull the look together around the pants?  For example, what do you wear when you want the wow factor?  A little black dress for sure!  And what do you wear when you are out for a fun night out?  A printed camisole, a sexy flowy sheer blouse, or even a flirty mini skirt.  The answer is rarely...pants!  Today, the white polka dot ankle trousers are the focal point of my look, and everything else is just playing the supporting role.

Mint & Blue

Dear Diary,
The beverage of my choice on a hot sunny day is a Mojito.  Crushed mint and lime juice are the perfect ingredients to fight summer heat.  The skirt of my choice on a 80 degree weather (in March) in wine country is a mint micro pleat skirt.  The fresh color and sheer fabric are the perfect combination to brighten up any looks.  Ultra feminine and easy, micro pleat skirts can be worn with almost anything.  So even if I was slightly buzzed by the end of the day, this affair between me and the skirt is definitely more than a one night stand.

Dear Diary,
  It seems so obvious and a no brainer.  So why did it take me so long to assemble this all gray all over look?  We all have some shades of gray in our closet...but when was the last time you pulled them all together?   It's time to take a look and maybe you'd be pleasantly surprised too!  This angora sweater and jeggings is sure going to be my uniform for this California "winter".

Dear Diary,
 Don't be mad at me.  I know it's been a "little" while since I wrote you.  If it's any consolation, there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of you.  And now I need you more than ever.  While I was gone, my life got turned around and upside down.  While I've grown wiser and unfortunately...older, there's still a little girl inside of me that loves to play dress up and dream.  I need you to help me find myself again.  Help me find inspiration in my everyday wardrobe.  But this time, I won't be doing it alone.
