I wasn’t a fan of red long before I became an AKA #NoShade. Truth be told I’m still not a huge fan, but when I saw this lady in red at my local Goodwill for a whopping $1 I had to have her.
I love a good trench coat, I’m not really sure if this qualifies as a true trench as the material slightly throws it into the raincoat category. Perfect for Spring.
It’s raining today and I have a few errands to run and I am taking the kids to LEGOLand so fashion and function it is.

One of the undeniable truths about being a mother is you never find
it okay the time to indulge yourself. The word indulge is not to be confused with something lavish and expensive but instead points to purchasing something as simple as a pretty journal or relaxing candle for yourself.
Taking “mommy guilt” out of the picture sometimes the last thing you want to do is drag a sleepy, crying toddler into an establishment so you can browse and pick up a few things for yourself.
About a week ago I had the pleasure of previewing Atlantic Stations’s newest boutique Abby & Co. and this store set the right environment for Mamas to pick up something for baby and themselves.
Full of awesome….I say.
From baby shower gifts to stationary to those hard to find baby items they have a little bit of everything. A one stop shop.
I had the opportunity to chat with the wife half of the husband and wife duo that owns the store and she stated that their vision was to create a space where Mom could grab something for herself in the midst of purchasing something for her child or a gift for a friend.
The entire store was just full of win. I didn’t know where to look first. Totally one of those places where you are mindlessly picking up things and get to the register to realize you’ve amassed quite the tab.
Believe it or not I left with only things for myself and none for the baby. I think I supported Abby & Co.’s vision!
Are you still on the Mommy guilt train and need a little coercing to pick up a few things for yourself? Why?!
I know some people like to stay away from mixing prints but I am a huge fan. I don’t do it often but I try to do a little something when I can. One of the keys to making this trend work is to make sure the prints are in the same color family.
One day this week while out running errands I wore this:
Sweater: Thrifted Blouse:Thrifted Jeans: Thrifted Rainboots: Target Necklace: Target Cuff: Tory Burch
I tell you this weather really has me home bound. I thought I would spice things up by moving from my dining room to the kitchen this time. Change is good. Can’t wait to be able to go outside.
Are you a fan of mixed prints? Have you dared tried the trend? Are you ready for Spring?!
I promise when the weather gets warm I will get more interesting with these photos but for now my vacant dining room will have to due.
Still haven’t been out much during the week. Sunday was chapter meeting. I wore:
Dress: Gap Blazer: Thrifted (J. Crew) Shoes: Steve Madden Belt: Target
