Welcome to post holiday weekend Monday. Dontcha hate those? I wish the weekend lasted a little bit longer. One, our family vacation is over and two, we drove almost 16 hours with a toddler. I need another vacation ha! I'm so glad we were able to get away and just spend some time together. Hope you have a good start to your week! Thanks for stopping by.

There is always so much work to do before a vacation. Between errands, packing and cleaning the house (I hate coming back to a mess) it's been non stop here. And of course, my pregnant brain forgets half of what I need to do, as well as my to-do list after I leave home. Ha! At least it's gorgeous out and we are enjoying the sunshine while out and about. Hope you have a great weekend!

Perfect Spring

dress: Sheinside c/o, pumps: Jessica Simpson (similar), bag: Lauren by Ralph Lauren (also love this one), watch: Fossil (on sale!), sunglasses: Kate Spade

The perfect, spring dress weather has arrived in upstate New York and I couldn't be happier about it. Taking out my pretty little dresses (while I still can fit into them) is such an amazing feeling that I cannot wait to share more with you all! I'm loving this and this floral dress as well. The quality is a little on thin side (it is not lined) but it's perfect for summer weather and under $22!  

Mother's Day is coming up and honestly, I'm puzzled about what to get for our moms. I don't want to be corny but give something special and personal. Check out the Nordstrom Gift Guide - there is always something for everyone (and every budget). Plus they always offer FREE shipping and returns - the best thing ever (just in case she doesn't like it).

Designer Look Alike For Less

Who hasn't drooled over the Valentino rock stud trend? Sure the fashion house has made every single accessory item with rock studs but it doesn't seem to slow down. From the previous fascination with Rock Stud Heels we have  jumped into bags. Or maybe I'm just catching up with the times. In any case, if you have been drooling over the studded bags but cannot bite the price tag, here are some alternative options for you. All at a (very) reasonable price.

This Prada Tote has been on my Wishlist for a while. That is why when I saw a very similar in structure bag by Ralph Lauren, I knew I had to have it. It's a classic with a thick leather and solid design that won't go out of style. I have not had a purchase that I loved so much and that fit my personal style so well. I have worn it more than I can count! A brown satchel/tote is a must in any girl's closet. And if you are aiming at the lowest end of the spectrum, Target is always happy to provide cheap alternative ($34). 

I saved the best for last - the shoes. Who hasn't admired these heels by Valentino? Who didn't ever think about one day buying them? Well, guilty as charged. Here are some affordable alternatives that will make other fashionistas turn their heads. Snatch them up before they are gone! 


Linking up with Mama and More
Enjoy the shopping!

So you thought you knew what cold was before right? Nope, not really. It's so cold here today that pretty much all activities are cancelled. Okay, are you ready? It's -40F with windchill in upstate New York tonight. I'm thankful for a warm and cozy house, for my dear family and my little birthday boy. Instead of complaining how cold it is, I'm choosing to focus on the good things that winter brings. Like sitting on the couch and catching up with my favorite show (I can barely keep up with one) and drinking hot tea. Oh yeah, and finishing up last of the birthday cupcakes. Now that's the life!
Hope you are having a good start to your week!

Casual Done Right

tee: Corilynn
jeans: Target (similar)
jacket: Target
bag: Ralph Lauren
booties: Old Navy (similar)
scarf: similar
watch: Fossil
When it comes to outfit pictures, I started this blog very self consciousness. I didn't feel very confident and still didn't know who I am in many different ways. I wanted to be like this or that blogger, simply because I liked their style. Over the years, I have discovered more of myself and became confident in my own skin. It's really fun to do photo shoots now-a-days and although people  are still gawking, I really don't care anymore. They usually don't ask, but even if, I just tell the truth. Most of my family still doesn't understand why and what exactly I do but it's fun. And I like it. I'm also so very grateful for my faithful photographers who constantly oblige with my demands. This blog would not exist without the people behind the lens. 

Thanks for stopping by!

dress: H&M (save, splurge)
heels: Payless (savesplurge)
bag: Ralph Lauren
vest: vintage (similar on sale!!!)
belt: GAP
The temperatures have dropped below reasonable for outfit pictures outside. So I had  to resort to inside photo shoot to make sure everyone's limbs stay in tact. The Christmas decor is put away and only the cold remains with not a ray of sunshine on most days. I want to take Jonathan out and let him experience the winter wonderland but when it's 3F outside, even the bravest mom gives up. It is supposed to 'warm up' (a.k.a. stay above 25 this week) which means opportunity for sledding and some fun. Most days we survive the cold with naps and hot tea. Stay warm my friends
