As of today

I sincerely apologize for the humongous lag in posts! I miss blogging and can not wait to start posting outfits again, fixing up the store and my Facebook account , and beginning an Instagram account.

Time has been slipping away from me. Being a mother is a full-time job...no scratch that because with a full- time job you get lunch breaks, sick days, vacation days, and the ability to actually leave the job and go home, and although motherhood is much more rewarding, it is not as forgiving.

My little one turns 1 next week friday. Insane. I know right? I still can't believe I am a mother, let alone the mother of a soon to be toddler. I still feel like a child myself. Who am I to be responsible for the well-being of any life form but that of a pet? What could I possibly have to teach this tiny person that is already so perfect?

She is what baby books would call a 'difficult' or 'spirited' baby. She is a challenge. I am a low energy, easily stimulated introvert (being around others, though enjoyable, is draining for me).  She is this tremendous burst of energy. To put it into perspective, I can, and often do, get overstimulated just from reading a book. I often have to take mini-breaks from reading because the excitement that I get from an awesome book is too much for me to bear in one sitting. Crazy, I know, but I kid you not. Same thing with fashion magazines, I get so excited and if it is a really good magazine, I have to read it in pieces because a good outfit alone is enough to get me excited/ stimulate me, several on one page?? Much too much to take in one sitting!. My little one spends all day screaming joyfully while running back and forth in her walker throughout the house. It is the cutest thing to see, but dear God, it is draining.

It is over 90 degrees out here every single day with matching percentages in humidity, much too hot and stuffy to go outside. We have been stuck inside for quite awhile. I haven't had the energy to put outfits together and blog, though, I have not stopped thinking about it for a second.
It is getting a little cooler in the evening so I am planning on getting an outfit post up here real soon.

My birthday passed at the beginning of the month, and with the accumulated birthday money I have been able to purchase some really awesome pieces. I have some killer outfits in mind and I cannot wait to share! I truly do enjoy sharing outfits and thoughts with other fashion lovers! You guys are seriously like my friends, I have a good time reading and responding to comments. I can't wait to connect with you guys again real soon!

Without further ado, here are updated pics of my gorgeous angel. I like to say that she is my little piece of heaven, even when she is raising hell!




Her morning face.




pppsssshhhh.... look at that attitude. She looks like she is judging someone's outfit.




This is her bored.

Why I am in love with the "Ugly sandal"















Just a year ago, you could have birkenstock and I would have said "eww". 

I admit, I failed to see the fashion potential in thses infamously normcore, plain, and well, plain ugly flats. However, I can now say that "I have seen the light" and will never shit on them again. 
Birkenstocks and Birkenstock-ish sandals, were once for the fashion impaired and lazy, but no more. The truth is the actually require some thought and consideration. Styled right, they can make any outfit seem effortlessly cool, styled badly....well, we all know what Birkenstocks styled badly and without thought look like.
They are so versatile. They are so simple that they work with a spectrum of different styles and looks.
They are so comfortable. 'Nough said..
I know they call it a trend but I believe the right style of Birkenstock could be a new classic. They are minimal enough to last several seasons, and go with other trends that come and go.
Again, they are comfortable as hell!

Next up: The ones I have my eye on

Baby Blue




Pearls- LJS/ Dress- Zara

This dress is such a soft, sweet shade of blue that I could not resist it.  I adore its simple cut. There is a  slight sheerness in upper portion of the back that makes is sexy.  Great to through on and go, and still look put together.

Now Selling!




These babies are gorgeous and are now for sale at my SHOP

I won't sell anything I don't personally love, with that being said, I ha to keep a pair in each color for myself!

I kid not, I was honestly not planning on holding onto any of the merchandise for myself but these fit my style so perfectly.

I like things clean and minimal (or so I am learning about myself), so much so that I am not even that big on accessories. Most of my posts show me wearing little to no accessories, I feel that if you need accessories to make an outfit work then the outfit, then the outfit wasn't that good to begin with anyway. If I wear accessories it is a compliment, not a supplement. These babies, definitely compliment...almost everything!  They are so amazing that I decided to stock up on them in color as well (that will be coming soon!)

I am not saying this to pressure you into purchasing, but I honestly do only have a very small quantity of these pearls.

Feel free to ask me questions about the merchandise right here in the comments or email me at: Lolajaro@aol.com
