Cold Shoulder Casual


So, total bummer....this shirt is sold out! But, good news is that Loft still has a ton of other super cute options that I think you would love! 

I wore this outfit over the weekend...it was just an easy outfit to toss together for church, other Sunday things, and an event at my local Loft

I have grown quite fond of high waisted jeans. Even mid rise jeans don't do it for me like high waisted jeans do. They are definitely no longer Mom jeans (although I am a Mom, sooooo....) 

Next week may be a little spotty on the blogging front. I am headed to LA next week for a few days. I have every intention of getting all of my blog posts for the week done and scheduled before I head out, but we will see if that plan actually happens!

Date Night



Like I said earlier this week, my husband and I had a kid free weekend so we took advantage! We aren't super fancy people and we are budgeting, so we kind of limited ourselves to local restaurant options. We were also both craving different things for dinner, so we settled on a new diner that had just opened up!

I always find it funny that my blog is Mommy in Heels because I don't wear heels that much anymore! They just don't fit into my lifestyle like they used to! For our little date night though I figured I would take them for a spin, if only for a little bit! (I mean...I did bring a change of shoes with me just in case!).

A few weeks ago I turned my favorite pair of Levi's that were a tad too long into my new favorite Levi's with a step hem. If you follow me on instagram you saw the little transformation. These jeans I am wearing were my next step hem adventure. I documented this time around so I could share with you in a blog post my step by step.

I will say I had a little bit more trouble this time around. It's funny because for my Levi's I literally was like "I am going to give it a try!" and banged it out in like 10 mins. This time around it took me SO much longer and I had to make a lot more adjustments and fixes!

Anyway, be on the lookout over the next week for a DIY Step Hem tutorial!

Casual, Kid Free Weekend


My husband and I had a somewhat unexpected kid free weekend and it was glorious! I was originally supposed to be in LA over the last several days, but it was pushed to the end of the month. 

Originally, my husband was going to have the weekend all to himself (a dream, right?!), but we were both glad to have this unexpected weekend together. At first we thought about doing something super fun, but local. That thought quickly left our minds as we reminded each other of our budget...womp wompppppp.

We are doing Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University through our church, so budgeting is at the forefront of our minds (and wallets). We ended up just running errands and taking care of little things that needed to be done. The day ended with dinner at a new diner. While we didn't end up doing anything over the top, it was the perfect weekend-I told him I can't remember the last time I laughed and giggled so much! 

I wore this outfit when we were out and about during the day on Saturday. It's so hard to dress this time of year (March is my least favorite month)-my mind is on spring, but Mother Nature is still in full on winter mode. Plus, I know you all are ready to see some spring looks, am I right?

With all of the snow on the ground, but somewhat mild temps, the easiest thing to reach for is my utility jacket. I always consider this a closet staple, and always recommend to my clients that they add one to their closet. This one from Loft is a couple of years old, but they are so easy to find!

Instagram Roundup


Happy Friday!! I don't know why I am starting my post out with that....I can't stand how everyone seems to start their first snapchat or instastories of the day with "Happy Monday!" or "Happy Thursday!" Lump that phrase in the category with "to the moon and back" phrase, "it is what it is," oh and "go big or go home." Over.used.

Wow I came right out of the gate with guns blazing, didn't I?!? LOL! Don't know where that came from, but HAPPY FRIDAY anyway!! :)

Since we got dumped on by Mother Nature this week with a ton of snow, no new outfit post, but I did throw together a little instagram roundup for you so you can shop all of my looks right in one place!

If you haven't done so already, download the new Liketoknow.it app- you can screenshot or like any photos that are liketoknow.it enabled on instagram and immediately get a push notification to shop the looks right away. Makes it a whole lot easier than having to wait for an email!

Waiting for Spring in Stripes


This is about the fourth or fifth time that I have worn this shirt within the past couple weeks that I have had it (last seen on the blog here). It is super comfortable, the sleeves are just right, and it goes with just about everything! 

While I (along with everyone else) am dying for some warmer temperatures, I had to settle and wear my laceup flats with this instead of a cute pair of wedges or sandals. This would also look cute with a chic denim vest instead of the jacket! 

It was a tad cold to be wearing just the denim jacket, but fashion before function, right?!?!

Dreaming of Spring


I thought we had managed to escape the wrath of Mother Nature this winter, but I was wrong. I guess the unseasonably warm temps we had in February were a bit of a tease, and got everyone all geared up for spring. As I type this though, we are anticipating 12+ inches of snow Monday night into Tuesday.

I am anticipating not being able to open my store Tuesday (and possibly Wednesday, depending on when the snow stops). Part of me is like NOOOOOO!! But another part of me loves the anticipation of a snow storm and the possibility of being snowed in (for a day, tops. Any more than that may make me crazy!!).

Anyway, with spring on my mind, I gravitated towards my white jeans and loved the idea of pairing a pastel tee with it. I would have loved to wear these shoes with it, but with freezing temps, it just wasn't in the cards!

Daily Makeup Tutorial

TGIF, right?!?! Although I work Saturdays, so my excitement is a little 'eh' compared to others! Saturdays are kind of my Fridays, since I have off Sunday's and Monday's!

Anyway, months ago I did a daily makeup tutorial on my YouTube channel. I have been getting some questions about my makeup, what I use daily, what I like, etc. Some things have changed since doing my last makeup tutorial so I figured why not do an updated one?!

While some things have changed, there are some things that have stayed the same and will continue to stay the same, because I love them!

Take a look at my daily beauty must haves! The images are clickable, so happy shopping!) Also check out my most recent YouTube video sharing my daily makeup routine!

Stripes + Camo


There are some pattern combinations that I love, and always seem drawn to pair together. I noticed the other day when I was piecing this outfit together that there always seems to be a common denominator when mixing patterns: stripes. Florals and stripes, plaid and stripes, camo and stripes. It just works (for me at least)!

I grabbed this shirt last week when Loft was having one of their amazing 40% off sales. There is something I love about a striped shirt that I think is just so classic. It pairs so well with so many things from lived in boyfriend jeans, so a sleek pencil skirt!

Per the usual, I decided to keep mine dressed down with my camo jacket. I initially gravitated to my white converse, but thought I would dress it up a little bit with one of my favorite pairs of booties.
