Channeling vacation in Tulum, Mexico! Last week I attended a conference in Dallas, Texas. The conference was hosted by rewardStyle which is a media and affiliate marketing company geared towards fashion, beauty and lifestyle bloggers. The conference is known throughout social media as #rsTheCon if you would like to search the hashtag for pictures.

I was so excited to receive an invitation to the conference. There are only about two hundred spots available and they are tough spots to come by! So, I definitely felt honored to be included. As with any business conference, there were classes and networking opportunities with both brands and bloggers. It was really fun to meet some bloggers I know through social media, but have never had the chance to meet in person. While education at a conference is must-have for your business, making new friends who can become your support group is a goldmine. Love it!

So you might be asking yourself, why is she channeling Tulum at a work conference in Dallas? Well, on day one of the conference all we did was check-in, meet-and-greet with other attendees, and celebrate being there at a pool party! The theme of the pool party was “Escape to Tulum” and it was sponsored by Sole Society, so it was super fun! Hence my outfit, channeling a vacation in Tulum ūüėČ

Surprisingly, this is not what I planned to wear to this event. The original dress I planned to wear didn’t work out for the party, so I decided to wear this outfit instead which I had originally planned to wear on day three of the conference. It worked out perfectly since it was fairly warm and humid at the pool party, and this skirt breathes! Love!

Circling back to the original dress; when I tried it on at home I thought the bra I packed would be OK, but it totally showed through! Eeeek! I can’t go around like that!! So, the dress will have to come home with me and get worn another time. But, that wasn’t my only packing snafu. I forgot to pack my eye-shadow brush, and my black wedges. Ugh! I am usually really good about following my packing list, but somehow I screwed up this time. Has this ever happened to you?

Thank you so much for stopping by, and stay tuned for more coverage of my escapades at conference!

Polka dots for spring

Wearing: ivory tassel earrings / YSL lipstick / white ruffle shirt (under $20!) / blue and silver ring / Chloe Faye handbag / Christian Louboutin spring nail polish / polka dot skirt (under $25!) / black watch / slate blue high heels

We are finally getting some beautiful spring weather here in the San Francisco Bay Area! I was thrilled to be able to wear some polka dots for spring, on an affordable outfit, which totaled under $75 excluding accessories over the weekend. Love!

Nothing is more satisfying then finding a great deal on clothing which is comfortable, and fashionable. These two pieces were part of my “I’m going to Target for binder paper” run a couple of weeks ago. Of course, several others things ended up in my cart including this white ruffle top, and this polka dots skirt. Both pieces are versatile for spring. I have already worn this white top several times! I showed it last week¬†on the blog here.

Polka dots are also a trend this spring; I remember seeing them on the spring runways in New York. They make such a fun, lighthearted print for spring. The polka dots on this pencil skirt take it from a serious skirt, to a playful article of clothing. Love that!

I wore this outfit last weekend for church and brunch with my family.¬†My cute little ten-year-old daughter took these photos last weekend for me. Isn’t she amazing!

What has ended up in your Target cart recently? Are you able to stick to your list when you go, or do you end up with unplanned purchases in your cart like me?

Thanks for stopping by

Casual spring day

how to wear bi-color denimspring outfit ideacasual spring outfit ideapink mansur gavriel sun totebell sleeve shirt for spring

Wearing: Kendra Scott earrings / YSL lipstick / black cotton bell sleeve top (under $25!!) / Kendra Scott ring / Christian Louboutin spring nail polish / Gap jeans (old, also love this pair the colors are more on trend for 2017 then my pair) / Mansur Gavriel handbag (mini size in stock here) / pale pink espadrilles (so comfy and under $175!!)

So have you ever gone to Target for one item and accidentally left with a cart of who-knows-what? Well, I did this a few weeks ago, only instead of a cart full of who-knows-what, I had a cart full of Who What Wear! haha

This blouse, which was part of my Target for binder paper, has turned out to be the perfect go-to black top for spring. It is comfortable, not expensive, and very on trend. Love! I have worn it with my bi-color jeans as well as my boyfriend jeans. It really goes with any casual pant style; love that!

These bi-color jeans have been in my closet since last year, and I wear them all the time! They may have stretched out a bit, but I still love them. If I wear them with wedges or heels, they hang OK. haha

My beautiful ten-year-old daughter has taken a liking to photography! She is so cute! My daughter snapped all of these photos while we were in downtown Los Gatos last week. My iPad had crashed, and would not turn on, so I had an appointment at the Apple Store to have it looked at. She came with me while they fixed it, snapped these photos, and I rewarded her with pizza from Pizza My Heart.

It was so nice to hang out with her one-on-one on a beautiful spring day! When you have three kids, sometimes it is difficult to get one-on-one time with one child. I love having that time with each of my children; it is how you really get an insight into their growing, maturing personality! So fun!

If you have multiple children, how do you break away from your busy schedule, and get one-on-one time with each of your children? I find it to be hard. I would love some tips!
