Hey friends! I have some exciting news! I am teaming up with a very talented lady who also happens to be one of my favorite people, Susannah of Alumbra Photography, to bring you some high quality style blog posts every month. You’ve seen her work before on my blog as she took my family photos and some great boudoir/fashion-y photos too! Now, here’s the deal. I just love fashion and I really love looking at fashion blogs. Some people watch Dancing with the Stars, some watch ESPN, some play CandyCrush. However, I love spending my downtime looking at fashion magazines and fashion blogs. The thing I haven’t figured out yet is how bloggers can afford to have several new outfits a week, and still have money to pay for all their expenses, which in my case is Diego, Levi and Mateo (cause kids = lots of expenses, ya’ll!) And uhm, yea, I gotta fund that IRA too. So, there will be a lot of mixing and matching the same pieces (over and over) but in new ways, and cute looks at a great price, and things you can wear around kids, and things you really shouldn’t, and all that good stuff! And finally, I will be putting to good use all my days collecting and staring at magazines.

It can be a bit hard to look fashionable in really cold temperatures because all I want to do is wear my eskimo jacket to stay warm and call it a day. But a cute alternative is just to layer several tops. Here I wore a plaid shirt with a sweater vest and a moto jacket on top. And I was very warm! These boyfriend jeans are my favorite, as they give a very relaxed look and are super roomy. Perfect for a mom on the go!
