A Good Habit

Happy Monday Everyone!

We’ve all got habits. The good, the bad, and the purposeful. I must say I have all of these but today I’m talking about a good and purposeful habit to start. I hardly had time before I was a Mom now my time is crazy limited. That goes for picking out outfits too. I’ve found myself all too often going through my closet like a crazy person, making a mess and cussing because I need an outfit like that instant. I’m typically a very organized person so I said that this had to stop. About six months ago or so, any free time that I had I would put together outfits that I could grab and throw on in a moments notice.

Three things I always make sure of:

The tags are removed

It fits

The garments are wrinkle free

I can assure you that getting in to the habit of this will help you out on a daily basis. I’m really neurotic about preparing for the week so I always look at my schedule for the week and put outfits with what I have going on that day.  

Now, lets tackle this Monday with a strong coffee and a good outfit!

Theo The Dragon

Happy Halloween! 

Okay, if I’m Being totally honest October completely kicked my ass. Like in a major way. We completed our seventh room renovation, Theo is very close to walking so that means I can’t walk away from him for even a second. After hours and hours of that I’m beyond exhausted. He’s also teething so that doesn’t help. I had the worst cold ever and Contemporary Photography has been completely swamped to boot (last wedding this weekend). So all of that has me just so tired. 

I started this as an Instagram post but it got a little long so I made it into a blog post instead. My little Theo Shane is a dragon this Halloween! I wanted to tell my story behind this: 

My love for dragons dates far further back than Game of Thrones (even though I love GOT... probably because of the dragons?). Not only is my Chinese Zodiac a dragon but bonus the Kilgore Family Crest is also a dragon, and when I was little I was the owner and founder of “The Reptile Club”. Me and my friends would go down to a little pond by my house (Terabithia) and catch tadpoles and other activities of that nature. I loved my scaley friends, I even had a pet snake (Mr. Scaley) that my Mom and I caught.

Dragons had always been a fascination for me. I loved reading about them and seeing shows with them in it. When I was pregnant with Theo my best friend Crystal and I always called Theo a dragon long before we knew the gender. Mostly because of what I wanted to eat or how I was feeling we always said “ that little dragon...”. Needless to say there was no question as to what he would be for his first Halloween. I mean I was only a few weeks pregnant picturing my little baby dressed as a dragon. Of course we had to bring the now traumatized dogs into it to make three dragons and here I am in my very rightful place as The Mother of Dragons.

Perla Blue was 100% humiliated. Donatella is very much used to this behavior from her parents.

I hope everyone has a great (and safe) Halloween!

What You Need Now

Happy October my Pretties! 

Starting at the beginning of each month I’m going to tell you five things I’m loving and what your closet needs right now.  These pieces might be on trend or just a great addition to your closet and fashion life.

1. Chic Flats.

It’s pretty clear I love sky high heels but when I’m running errands all day that’s a big no for me. That doesn’t mean you still can’t look chic AF while errand running. These are my current favorite for those times.

2. Graphic Sweatshirts.  

These awesome sweatshirts are the perfect way to be on trend right now and also be cozy.

3. Over The Knee Boots

No matter what you’re wearing adding OTK boots will elevate your entire look. Get a more chunky heel for a more comfortable shoe.

4. An Orange Pashmina 

Nothing screams October like an orange scarf. Rock it with navy for a great contrast or burgundy for a more fall palette.

I always love when a new month falls on a Monday! It’s like a major fresh start.

Enjoy the day!
