Thank you to DSW for sponsoring this blog post!

Mommy "On-Duty" 

Being a new mom is much more than I ever imagined and I can’t get enough. It’s sleepless nights, cuddles, major poopy diapers, smiles, breastfeeding/pumping constantly… everyday is something new and I am learning it all. In between all the craziness, I try to stay chic and not allow the tired eyes to take away from my style. Thanks to DSW I can do it all and look stylish while doing it! My morning consists of taking Ashton for walks in sweats and sneaks, so my sneaker game needs to be on point. These high-top studded kicks edge up any outfit and allow me to walk miles while he… fingers crossed is “sleeping”!

Off to Meetings 

One thing I love about this industry is that you can dress how you choose! Of course there’s the occasional corporate meeting that you need to be buttoned up but typically you can dress based on your mood. Being a new mom, sneakers are always top of mind. I am always on my feet so comfort is everything. These sneakers are the perfect everyday universal shoe that can be paired with rompers, denim shorts or cute dresses. Check out the other amazing prints here – I have my eyes on the polka dots! 

Happiest of Hours 

At the end of the day… this mama needs some cocktails and apps! I mean can you blame me? After a long day of running around a shoe with a “lower” heel is a must. I do love the occasional sky high stilettos but it’s just not in my cards as much anymore. These lace up sandals gives me exactly what I want. I can totally go from happy hour to din without any complaints!

So as we know… comfort is king for this mama! Whether you are a new mom or just want an extra pep in your step, your shoes are what get you through the day.  My schedule is always stacked, between mommy duties, meetings and events, my shoes need to keep up with my busy lifestyle.  Comfy but stylish sneakers for the day and low thick heels at night make sure I always hit the ground running.  My style mantra is simple, if there are patterns and designs on my clothes, I keep my shoes solid and chic or vice versa.  Whatever your personal style mantra is, DSW has got you covered.  With all the variety they offer, your shoe game will be hard to beat.

Jumpsuit: Aqua 

A staple in my wardrobe this summer is a casual yet cool jumpsuit. This one's from Aqua and is perfect to bring you from day to night. I'm all for the model off duty look so just pair it with some high-top sneaks for the day and dress it up for a night out with a pair of heels. Summer in the city gets extra steamy so no fuss dressing is a must.  Choose effortless and lightweight styles to stay cool. Plus ice cream always helps the sweaty situation!

Top: Aqua | Jeans: Sunset + Spring | Sunnies: Quay

Bodysuits are an essential in my closet. It's an effortless style that makes you look put together instantly. The best way to rock a bodysuit is with a less fitted and high-waisted pant. It makes your waist look thin and your bod look its best! This one's from the 100% exclusive Bloomingdales collection and less than $60... oh yes add it to the cart! And as for the pearl distressed jeans.... enough said. No seriously these are made for me! I'll definitely be styling these again v soon with a cool rocker tee and sneaks.

Dress: Aqua | Jacket: Aqua

Getting dressed during your 3rd trimester could definitely be a struggle. I've been wearing lots of stretchy dresses that show off the bump, so you don't feel like a big hot mess. No joke, I felt skinnier when I was rocking tighter dresses that fit my bod. The 100% exclusive AQUA line at Bloomingdales has an amazing selection of fitted dresses whether your pregs or not... super flattering and affordable. Here's another fav that's perfect for spring!
I also can't get enough of denim.... ever! It's like a crazy obsession I've had since childhood that has stuck with me. This studded number is amazing to style over dresses or shorts for the warmer temps. It adds an edgy vibe to any look. Shop some more of my favs styles below:

Dress: Pam & Gela | Jacket: Sunset & Spring | Sunnies: Quay

The weather's not feeling the spring temps just yet but my wardrobe definitely is. I'm starting to style my fav must-have denim pieces for spring. Such an easy transitional piece to rock for that model off-duty look. The distressed denim and pearl accents compliments the camo printed dress all from the 100% exclusive Bloomingdales collection. Camo is popping up everywhere this spring and I'll definitely be styling this print all season... just think a chic tee, distressed denim or comfy joggers!

Tis the season, so let's amp up your look for your next holiday party! Of course a sparkle dress is cool and all but the accessories that you pair with it really makes the statement. Let's start with the earrings - I'm totally a hoop girl... gold or rose gold hoops are life! It's a staple all year round but is definitely on rotation during the holidays too. As for the arm party, stack on the bracelets or opt for a statement cuff. I went for a dainty, chic and classic look by styling the Eklat & Rubric collection from Tous. They have timeless pieces that are perfect for any holiday party plus you can rock them post holiday season.. it's a win win! OK you need to get yourself a festive bag to pull the look together. Think sequins, metallic or anything with some shine. I'm all about taking it to the next level... so just go for it. Also check out a special holiday love story here
Wishing you and your family an amazing and special holiday season. Xx
