Miami Beach and Black Fringe

We had a good few days in Miami and even though the weather wasn't the best, we did have a couple days at the beach.  Of course our last full day was the best day weather wise (isn't that always how it goes??) so we spent it at the beach after grabbing lunch on the strip.  Overall, it was good to get away and have time together as a family.  Simon absolutely loves the beach and so he was so excited to be going there.  Scarlett had a hard time being away from her own bed which meant that we were all exhausted coming home ha ha.  She is a definite homebody - so different from Simon for sure.

  I managed to find this adorable swimsuit on and I wanted to share it with you girls.  I know how hard it is to find cute, modest swim suits now days.  One pieces have been making a big comeback but I had not purchased one in years as it's almost impossible to find one that fits well and is cute and modest.  I posted a couple pics with  me wearing it.  The lighting makes it hard to see the fringe on the top so I'll post a link to the website/suit too.

Rocker Black

Hey ladies,
  We are enjoying our last day here in Miami. It has been good to have family time but I think we are all ready to be back in our own beds. ;)
 Lately I have such a love for black and wear it a ton.  I personally love the all black look - I think it is so classic and timeless and can be super versatile.  I got this leather jacket as a Christmas gift from Peter and I am officially obsessed.  I wear it all the time (as you may have noticed) and it is by far my favorite leather jacket I have ever owned.  It's comfortable, warm and looks great with everything.  I am far from a rocker, but I affectionately call this my rocker black look cause I feel like a rock star when I wear it!  I hope you all have a great week and wish us luck with the flight home. =)

Hey girls,
  I'm back!  I have been feeling inspired lately in the fashion world and thought I would post a look with some pieces that I have been enjoying.  I got this shirt at Nordstrom Rack last fall and it is a favorite for sure.  I can pair it with jeans or leggings and dress it up or down as needed.  Even though it is short sleeve, I still have been using it all winter with either a jacket over it or a shirt/tank under it.  I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday!
