Spring weather is always so volatile. One minute it is warm, clear, and beautiful; the next minute it’s fifty degrees and pouring rain! So, when the weather cannot make up its mind, I love wearing classic jeans and a fun tee.

This cute little tee is comfortable and casual, yet is has a little unexpected twist which makes it look more put together than your average everyday tee. I love throwing it over jeans and wearing comfortable espadrille’s for a casual, spring look I can wear it for running errands as well as meeting friends for lunch at Santana Row.

On this particular day I had a ton of errands to run, and I was still exhausted from the busy weekend. I wanted to be comfortable, but I couldn’t walk around in sweats. This twist tee paired with jeans was perfect. It was a comfortable outfit, and when paired with espadrilles that feel like slippers, it was ideal for my busy day.

Spring dresses and a formal tea

affordable spring dresses spring handbagsteen formal tea attire

wearing: On me: blue handkerchief wrap dress / black high heels / ivory and gold door knocker earrings / bracelets (old, similar here) / spring nail polish / gold ankle bracelet / blue handbag / On my daughters: pink dress (on sale!) / sneakers were worn for the walk to the car, pink dress paired with these flats / blue vintage inspired dress /

How cute are my daughters!! We snapped these photos on our walk back to the car after our annual NCL tea. Isn’t it funny how I always look for a wall? haha, Anyhoo. . .There had been a farmer’s market going on when we arrived, so I ended up parking several blocks away from the tea venue. My daughter was smart, and brought a pair of sneakers for the walk to the car! I think she’s ready to be a commuter!

In case you are wondering what NCL is, it is the National Charity League. It is a Mother/Daughter volunteer organization which also provides leadership skills, leadership opportunities, and it solidifies character building, and etiquette taught at home. It’s a great organization for helping craft your daughter into a powerful lady, as well as give us Mom’s a chance to spend valuable time with our tween/teen daughters. The annual tea is part of the etiquette lessons we teach our daughters. It is also a fun event to share with our daughters!

The theme this year was “An Afternoon in Wonderland” and it was a beautiful, whimsical theme! The centerpieces were adorable and played off the theme perfectly. The tea committee did such a fabulous job! My daughter’s love the annual tea, as it is one of the rare times each year they get to dress up! My teen picked out this pretty pink dress and my tween chose a vintage inspired blue number. I think they both looked like princesses! I love how they put their outfits together all by themselves. It’s so cute!

While my dress isn’t as fabulous against this pastel wall as my daughters dresses, it was very comfortable and worked well for the tea. I wore it in the morning with flats for my teen’s orchestra concert, then I switched to heels in the afternoon for the tea. It’s a very versatile dress! I am looking forward to pairing it with sandals and a bamboo bag this summer on more casual occasions. It’s a great spring/summer dress!

So, I want to circle back and talk about this all for a minute. Isn’t is beautiful? We found it in downtown Campbell. It’s really pretty and eye-catching in person. I’m so glad someone painted it for everyone to admire!

What is your favorite way to wear a dress on warm days? Do you prefer flats, sandals, or pumps?

Mother’s Day bonding with Soma

May is the busiest month of the year. I find it to be more hectic than December; in the middle of the holiday rush. It is almost ironic that Mother’s Day falls in the middle of the month when most of us Moms with school-age children are rushing around, being in three places at once, and are downright exhausted! Since May is so hectic, I am always looking for ways to relax, and spend some quality time with my children. After all, they are the reason I am a Mom! Haha

One of the ways I enjoy relaxing, is having what we call in our house a pajama party! Pajama parties are a favorite in my household. A pajama party is when we are done leaving the house for the day, so we can all get into our pajamas. While wearing our pajamas, we enjoy dinner, watch TV together, play board games, and talk. There is something comforting about wearing pajamas’ especially those made by Soma. They are soft, comfortable, and no fuss. We love pajamas!

We take our pajamas seriously in this house. So when my daughters first spotted me wearing Soma pajamas, they instantly wanted a pair too. They really love how soft the fabric is, and they enjoy all the fun prints on Soma pajamas. So for this Mother’s Day, we are sporting Soma’s latest pajama collection, and having a pajama party!

I am a huge fan of Soma’s sleep sets which include a sleep tee, PJ bottoms, and a face mask. My middle child enjoys stealing my face mask, and wearing Soma pajama shorts or dresses. My teen daughter also loves Soma’s pajama dresses, shorts, and pant sets. We are Soma pajama superfans!

Now, we just need to find the perfect movie to watch during our Mother’s Day pajama party. Any suggestions?
