All white

24 hours are just not enough

I’m starting this blog post on my sofa at 7 am, pumping and getting ready for my workday.  It seems this may be the best or only time this week to work on a post.  My days are slowly melting into weeks and before I know it, it’s a new month.  Evenings of relaxing, watching TV, and catching up on blog posts are a thing of the past.  Carlota has started a phase where all she wants is to be in mommy’s arms.  Sitting  beside me playing is not enough.  As much as I long for some more “me time” , I’m going to cherish these precious moments.  Before you know it, miss independent will want nothing to do with me and I will reminisce on these days.

This post is all about my favorite neutrals white and pink.  I can’t get enough.  With October being Breast Cancer awareness month, I can’t think of a more appropriate color.  I have an obsession with white jeans lately and these J brands are my favorite.  They are stretchy and soft and fit in all the right places.  I love the knee rips and ankle cut off.  Showing a little ankle can help add a little length to your legs.  Just add a pair of rocking heels and you are set.

These rockstuds have been all the rage on Instagram the past couple of years and don’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon.  With their gunmetal pyramid stud detailing they make a statement with any simple look.  For 4 1/4 inch heels, they are surprisingly comfortable.  They have quickly become my favorite heel.

Two pumping sessions later, I think I have finally finished my first blog post in October.   When did 24 hours a day become not enough?

Summer Palette

I can’t believe the summer is almost over.  Carlota will be 5 months in less than a week and the Pumpkin Spiced latte will be hitting Starbucks in no time.  Eeeekkk….time needs to slow down!  As much as I’m excited for the cooler weather and my favorite season for fashion, I’m trying to live up the last few days of summer and bright colors.

Labor Day is quickly approaching and I’m not going to put these white jeans on hold until next Spring.  I’m loving that white is no longer only a summer color but its being worn all season long.  I’m obsessed with an all white look.  Its clean, simple and fresh.  The best part is that it goes with EVERYTHING.

This summer was all about pops of color for me.  I don’t dress very colorfully but I do love to have bright accessories.  I have found that certain colors compliment me better than others and tend to stick with them.  For me, pink, blue and red are the colors of choice.  By sticking to a few colors you can get accessories that match without having to buy one of everything in all colors of the rainbow.   I love how my royal blue accessories pop with this look.
