Most days I wear my mom uniform of Lululemon and nikes, however on occasion I do dress up a bit and wear jeans and a blouse or t-shirt, and flats. Flats, be it ballerina or even stylish sneakers are a mom’s best friend for both their fashion and function, especially when chasing after a rambunctious toddler! Here are a few of my favorite pairs as well as a couple on my wish list. Enjoy!

Getting Organized for 2017

Every January after the holidays have come and gone, I love to order a new agenda for the year and get organized. It’s amazing how on December 1 we are all chomping at the bit to deck the halls with silvery tinsel and fresh garland, and come January 1 we quickly pack it all up and greet the New Year with a clean slate. I usually treat myself to one of these agendas (always in blue, my favorite color), and I also have my eye on the chic gold and lucite desk accessories below. Cheers to a great week and happy new year!

Fiesta Party Dress

We recently attended a friend’s fiesta party – cue the margaritas and mariachi band! – and had such a fun and festive night out. From the delicious tortilla soup and brisket tacos to the vibrant and colorful decor, every detail was perfection and made for a truly memorable evening. So what did I wear to said event, you ask? A hand embroidered dress by Mi Golondrina of course! For those of you who are new to this brand, Mi Golondrina was founded by Dallas native Cristina Lynch as an homage and celebration of her mother’s Mexican heritage. The collection features beautifully hand-stitched cotton, chambray and linen dresses and tops with ornate floral patters that are nearly 200 years old. The dress I chose is a stone blue chambray with light gray embroidery, that transitions perfectly from season to season. I’ve lived in it since the day I bought it (I even wore it home from the hospital after baby #2 was born!), and can’t wait to purchase one of their tops. How cute would their dresses be for Cinco de Mayo too! Check out their website, and cheers to a great week ahead. And Happy Halloween!
