Mommy & Me: Colorful

Mommy & Me: Colorful

Mia is now 5 years old, and with that grown age comes her own grown ideas. Case in point: She’s more vocal about our mommy and me outfits now. She does not like wearing tops or shorts. She wants all her items to be a […]

Transitioning To Fall

Transitioning To Fall

I love how this Pink Blush dress is the perfect transition piece. I mean, I remember wear it in the summer time with sandals as a shift dress – loose and just to chill in. This time, I had a double buckle belt to cinch […]

Two Versions of Kimono Style

Two Versions of Kimono Style

Everybody is enjoying the transition weather, the time when you can layer or wear boots because it gets colder at night. Our temperatures are still going strong in the 90s and the 100s.  One trend that I can actually participate in is the kimono because […]

A Poncho & A Skort

A Poncho & A Skort

If there’s one main thing I look for in a clothing item (besides if I think it’s aesthetically pleasing), it’s making sure that the material is “breathable.”  What does that even mean, you ask? Well, where I am from, the Rio Grande Valley, Texas, it […]

Jord: Cool Wood Watch

Jord: Cool Wood Watch

My husband is a self-proclaimed watch aficionado.  I mean, he really likes watches.  My pre-wedding gift to him was a watch, and a lot of the birthdays, Christmases, and anniversaries after that as well.  I know what you’re thinking — he probably has a lot […]

Mommy & Me: Gingham

Mommy & Me: Gingham

I remember when the gingham trend went into full swing this year, and I literally searched every store for any gingham items I could find. It didn’t even matter what the color was and if it was a top, skirt, pants, dress, etc. If it […]

Stripes At Work

Stripes At Work

When I first moved to case management from the post anesthesia care unit (aka “recovery”), I was so excited about being able to wear all my clothes! When you do bedside nursing, you’re limited to scrubs, but when you hold a non-clinical position, you have […]

Mommy & Me: Cherry On Top

Mommy & Me: Cherry On Top

It’s always fun matching with the little one — while she still lets me. I know that the older they get, the more they want to separate themselves to look for their own identity. I mean, I went through it, so I should know. But […]

Comfort Zones

Comfort Zones

I like comfort zones. I’m not a thrill seeker. My husband loves to ride roller coasters, and he’s always asking if I would be willing to go sky diving. My answer is always the same: “No.” Besides the fact that I’m afraid of heights, I […]

Coffee Saves Lives

Coffee Saves Lives

“I like coffee because it gives me the illusion that I might be awake.” – Lewis Black. Today is Day #9 of 13 straight days of work. Some of you are probably wondering why I work so much and what is it exactly I do, […]
