It’s still January and the grey days have kicked in. There are a few ways I survive January; lots of bubble baths, countless cups of tea, hours of cuddles, and plotting out my warm weather wishlist. This year I have the shop so I  am also getting my inspiration swirling for a little Spring | Summer shopping. 

Old San Juan

We are visiting in May and this mama is just a touch excited…like I have already ordered the perfect beach dress from Cleobella and am packing in my head as we speak.

Cuddles

Time outside and time with bae.

All white, all attitude

Really been thinking about white jeans this summer, but with a rocker twist.

Me time

Really any element from here will do. I will take the bubble now…

Perfectly cropped

I think this might be my new favorite hem. 

Become a garden gnome 

I am looking forward to our own home in Spring and my own space to escape to. 

All day every day

The new uniform, and I just snagged the perfect Ulla Johnson top of my dreams. Wait it’s like I forgot I have a two year old who uses my shoulder as a hanky. Note to self; get good dry cleaner.

And slide, and slide

Really? Laces? Who has time. 

Salt Flats, Puerto Rico

I am excited can you tell? Also when somewhere boasts your eternal color palette you go. 

Siesta

The joys of sleeping in the shade are highly undervalued. 

The perfect blouse 

Doén is my summer vibes in Spring, Fall and even Winter.

To market 

Finally get out and explore those glorious Mid-West markets. 

Stop and smell the roses 

Above all enjoy it, savor it, cherish it. Out time is short here, why not make the most.

Growing up I remember always being excited when we would move because my mom would take my sister and I to go pick out our very own wallpaper for our rooms. We were children of the eighties, sue me! Lately I have been falling back in love with beautifully designed wallpaper, with a modern twist of course.

Since our little trip to the shore and seeing the breathtaking shibori inspired restaurant wall I have been pinning my heart out to get inspiration for our soon (hopefully) forever home!

It may be a million degrees out but my eyes are looking ahead to Fall. Call it a symptom of working in retail that by the time the weather has settled into one season you are looking ahead to what is next! I always have my little new season wish list, as I am trying to be more minimal in my wardrobe I kept my list to only 5 items. Top of the list? Embroidered jacket! I picture it with a pair of vintage Levis, tall heeled boot and a great crisp top. 

I know, I am trying to be good and then straight off of the list with a super trendy item but the Grease lover in me needs it. Obviously I have a slight denim addiction so I am working on upgrading one of my vintage jackets, but after much hunting found an awesome little jacket that didn’t break the bank. Sadly it seems I wasn’t the only person on the hunt since it seems to have sold out at Zara pretty fast. So here’s a little jacket porn to get you dreaming of Fall!

Today something happened, something BIG, Harper took a 3 hour nap! Sleep training, why did we wait so long?! I digress, that is not the point, the point was what I did with my time…a good ole fashioned closet purge. Every change of season I go through and keep my closet nice and tidy, a minimalist with a shopping problem. There is one thing I can never bare to part with, my denim. 

Over the past year I have been making a strong effort to limit my consumption, particularly when it comes to clothes. Enter Pinterest to save the day. I have been working to find new inspiration in what I own and create new looks so I am continued to be inspired!

It’s easy to see that my true love is for denim and I am constantly looking to be inspired! Follow along on Pinterest if you have the same indigo dye running through you veins!

| mama musings // faux fur coat |

The weather has finally gotten brisk, and this mama can not stop dreaming of the perfect faux fur coat. My Pinterest has been filling with dreamy outfits, and nothing has been on my mind more than getting that perfect coat. Francoise Hardy, Jane Birkin, or Sienna Miller, they all know how to make this feel effortlessly cool. With slightly rumpled hair, minimal makeup and a sultry stare, I keep feeling inspired to create my own mama friendly spin on this daytime look. Wrapped up and cozy, with a tote bag full of fresh market flowers under my arm I could live every cold, grey day in this scrumptious coat.

This jacket, it’s almost surreal it’s so beautiful!
