I love a good jumpsuit and this particular one is one of my favorites. I got it last year from Marshalls and I can’t believe that it’s still one of my favorite pieces. The wide leg pant and the elastic waistband are so flattering on every figure. I’ve paired my jumpsuit with a simple white blazer, nude heels, and I decided to braid my hair for today’s look! What do you think?! People told me that I looked ”very German” which is right on (!) since I’m actually half German ;-)!
As always, thanks much for stopping by & have a lovely day!
Last weekend my husband, son and I went to Garfield Park’s Conservatory to see the 2015 Spring Show, called “Sun Showers”. It truly is beautiful. More than 200 yellow umbrellas hang from the glass ceiling, celebrating both the rain and sun that bring us hopeful spring flowers.
I was so inspired after our visit, and it reminded me how beautiful life is in general. I did take a few pictures, and I initially wanted to share some on my Instagram but my husband and I have the rule not to be on our cell phone’s during the weekend so, we can spend more quality time together. It is very important to us. It’s funny how much beauty we’re surrounded with, and yet people prefer looking down on their cell phones. Technology is evolving so quickly that many of us are barely aware of how our behavior is changing and how our most important relationships are threatened. My family is my life, and I never ever want technology replace what is “real” in my life.
For instance, the other day my family and I walked into a restaurant and we noticed a couple seated near us. And we noticed that this couple did not really enjoy this opportunity to be together, because one was patiently waiting for the other to stop texting. Once finished, the food came, they ate and left. No word has come out of their mouths. Sad and scary – and yet we see it so often. People replaced conversation with connectivity.
I recently read this amazing quote: “Anything that becomes a necessity has the ability to become an idol”. In other words, you can become so attached to your smartphone that it basically becomes the most important thing in your life: “If you can’t live without a gadget … throw it away. If a gadget is absorbing most of your leisure time … throw it away! Life is too short. Let’s not invest what little time we have in meaningless endeavors.” And yet – I heavily rely on social media especially as a blogger and entrepreneur – but I do remind myself that it’s not the most important thing in life. Our family, and our relationship to our heavenly father is the most important gift we have in life.
As always, thanks much for reading & have a wonderful, and hopefully a ‘cell phone less’ weekend!
Spring has finally arrived and I couldn’t be more excited, and so I decided to revive this simply joy of wearing polka dots! This simple print has such an elegant, yet elementary feel to it and I couldn’t help but feel like a youngster – which obviously means jumping around in it! SO fun! My son copied me, and started jumping all over the place and yes, we did take a few pictures of him as well but unfortunately they didn’t come out as good! Hopefully I will get some good ones soon because it’s just too darn cute – I swear!
As always, thanks so much for visiting & have a fabulous day!
Happy Friday, lovelies! I am excited to introduce you all to Nikki Poulos, a fashion designer known for her love of vintage-inspired styles, graphic prints and bold colors. Nikki’s designs have been featured in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, Elle, Lucky and Fitness magazines, and she was a designer on the NBC prime time TV show “Fashion Star”. As you can probably imagine…I was quite thrilled when the team at Nikki Poulos asked me if I wanted to collaborate with her.
I am wearing Nikki’s graphic print jacket which is such a fun piece! It reminds me of spring which by the way (!) can’t come soon enough! To finish off the look I have decided to pair it with a gorgeous peplum top which my mom recently got me (she’s the best!) and faux-leather pants. I have also added some fun accessories to my modern boho-chic look. I am currently head over heels in love with Kay K Couture and Mellow World Handbag. The necklace and earrings are just to die for, and my handbag is just the perfect size for your every day wear. You should definitely check them out!
As always, thanks much for reading & have a wonderful weekend!
