Red, red, red. Honestly this is one of my favorite colors to wear and I don’t own enough of it.
Ever since I was little, red has been “My Color.” I had this red terry cloth romper I wore everywhere, my prom dress was red, and I even got myself a zippy little red convertible Bug back when I was living in Florida. Seriously, if you were to scroll through my thousands of FB (and Myspace haha!) photos from high school and earlier, me in red outfits take up about 90% of my feed.
Something about my olive skin tone that truly pops when I wear this amazing color.
With Memorial Day and the Fourth of July around the corner, it’s only fitting that I’ve linked up with a whole bunch of amazing mamas in red.
In my outfit above, I’m rocking some pretty sweet brandless finds:
1. High-wasted jean shorts I snatched from my GRANDMA. That’s right, show off them legs, g-ma. She was one stylish lady.
2. Peace sign graphic tank from Express.
3. Red fitted button down that didn’t fit my preggo tatas (yes, I was pregnant in this photo!)
4. . High top Chuck Taylors in white (with red trim) that I got in Italy. Coulda bought them here, but it’s more exciting to say I bought them abroad.
And of course, it is no surprise that my son inherited my ability to dominate red as well. In fact, he may even have me beat!

2 weeks agoby mommymywayWent to @homedepot to get some gardening and yard supplies to tackle the crazy leaf situation I had I going on and took a wrong turn down the lighting aisle. So I needed to capitalize on this mistake with a photo Once we got home we went outside and started working, then my lawn guy rolled up and asked if I needed the grass cut. I said only if he could do the leaves too, and he agreed. Lol so Z and I came inside and enjoyed a popsicle! . . . . . #yardwork#gardenparty#homeowner#livethelittlethings#itshappyhere#simplychildren …
2 weeks agoby mommymywayHappy Easter ! We had a fun filled day that didn't go a single bit according to plan lol and you know what? I'm totally ok with it! We walked to church and my crazy kiddo didn't do so hot sitting or dancing or not screaming during the service so I let him try the children's room and he loved it. Then we tried to do an egg hunt at the house and he didn't care one little bit about it either. So guess who picked up all the eggs I hid? Lol . We didn't do a formal dinner…
3 days agoby mommymywayI'm exhausted. This kid is a trooper ... and maybe a bit of an exaggerator? Idk for those following our Insta story or Snaps we were in the ER last night for Z's leg. No break or fracture but they put it in a soft cast. After doctors appointments today and jumping through a dozen bureaucratic hoops and power trips, he's diagnosed with a sprained knee and no treatment plan. I'm tired. He's antsy. So when he asked for ice cream because his "knee hurts" I didn't need much persuasion. . . . . . #boymom#momofboys#boymomproblems#momlifeisthebestlife#motherhoodthroughinstagram …
