maxi-mizing summer

What do you wear to a Labor Day BBQ when you are invited along with your 2 year old and 7 month old child? This is not a trick question. The answer is something comfortable and NOT white because it surely would not still be white by the end of the night. I went with a comfortable maxi dress in a lovely green color that's sure to hide stains. I dressed it up with a new belt I purchased from a cute boutique I discovered on vacation last month, and a couple necklaces (which I fought to pry from my 7 month old's greedy fingers all night.) Happy (it's) Thursday!!

Flattered



Just when I was starting to feel bored with my closet and style, somebody comes along and nominates me for a St. Louis Fashion Blog award in TWO categories: "Best Newcomer" and "Best Personal Style." To say I'm flattered is an understatement. My passion for fashion has been reignited! I'll be attending St. Louis Fashion week for the first time this year and couldn't be more excited to participate and mingle with some of St. Louis' best bloggers and fashionistas.

There are some really great bloggers nominated in all the categories so if you have a chance follow the link below to see the list and cast your vote!
