My First Real Spring OOTD!

I realy dig these floral pants from Forever 21 and at only $19.80 I found these a real steal! Florals are so in for Spring 2013 and since these babies are also elastic waist they are comfortable too! I can look cute and enjoy the Easter festivities. I rounded out the outfit with a blush colored lace top and nude open toe lace up and lazer cut heels also from Forever 21. Over it all is my fave nude cardi from Necessary Clothing, and nude looped braided belt from H & M. I added a little adornment with a multi metel and many cross necklace from Forever 21 and a mint bracelet from Daily Look. Fresh and pretty. I love it!

Easter! What to wear?

I would love to wear one of my new sundresses with a little shrug or cardi over it, my cute lace up open toe nude cut out  heels, and since I've never rocked the tights and open toe thing (kind of a fashion no-no in my book-and I don't believe in too many rules) bare legs. However since the forecast calls for a high in the low 50's I figure I might be better off with a pair of floral trousers like my new pair from Forever 21 (H & M has similar styles too) the same open toe shoes to showcase my freshly pedicured toesies-(I chose Strawberry Margarita by OPI) and a simple top and cardi and probably my trench coat.....I hate being cold and there are Easter eggs to be hunted by my little one! Of course this is New England and the forecast could change any minute up or down 10 or 20 degrees.....And being a woman I could change my mind too!  What is everyone else planning to wear?

The calander says Spring but old man winter still has New England in his icy grasp!

I will be beyond thrilled if I get any use out of the pictured pieces this month. My Spring wardrobe is beyond fresh pretty and adoreable this year and yet I have only been able to rock some of my new jewelry pieces so far. It's rather sad because last year at this time I was in no way ready to break out my Spring style like I am this year.
I am truly thrilled with the pastel and floral confections in the form of shoes,  dresses, necklaces and even pants that I have aquired in the past couple months that I am truely heartbroken by the cold! I have decided rock some if these cuties anyway and just add tights, boots, and scarves until I am able to walk outside without having my breath taken away from the cold! Its March 23, and there are flurries for fashions sake! Brrrrr. My fave of the pieces pictured below is the little Bird dress by Band of Gypsies that I snagged last week at T.J. Maxx for only $19.99. What are some of your fave Spring pieces?

How a Stay at Home Mom Wears Studs and Spikes!

How does a stay at home mom wear studs and spikes?  That is the question.

Well let me start out by telling you that if your child or children are younger than 4 the spikes are a risky proposition because they might like to rub their face on your shoulder which if it has epaulets with spikes then that could be dangerous. You might want to stick with flat studs in that case. If your baby or toddler is anyhing like mine was you might end up heading to the er because your baby swallowed a spike off your hidden sneaker wedge from  or your vegan leather jacket from Forever 21. Yikes! That never happened to me thank you Jesus because until my son turned 4 I only wore studs and spikes when I went out with the husband or the girls.

If you feel safe enough to start wearing spikes and studs kids and occupation wise...(if you work with animals you might also want to stay away from wearing them at work.) Then I say go for it! The spikes and studs of 2013 are not your cool Aunt from the 80's spikes and studs. While she might have rocked her studs and spikes on a real leather biker jacket  today you have a much wider choice in from which to choose. For example, I recently picked up a great  Chanel  tweed inspired sweater from H and M's spring 2013 line with silver cone shaped spikes every so perfectly places on the shoulders and upper chest. It would be appropriate to wear to the children's museum or the casual office even with some black jeggings or a pencil skirt. A pic will be posted soon. Another option is a great cream or black blouse from with gold square studs encrusting the collar. That would be more appropriate for a girls night out with floral jeggings and some great nude suede like lace up mid heels like the ones I picked up recently from Forever 21. A third and final option is to wear a pair of great little black denim shorts from H and M with tiny silver and black studs on one side like the ones I also picked up recently. They can be worn with opaque tights and chunky ankle booties  now and brought into the warmer months with bare legs and an attitude.

Hope my studs and spikes and everything nice advice works for some of you! Peace.
