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!

1 week agoby mommymywayMOMMY & SON VACATION! Ok ya'll our day started at 2:30 am and is just now coming to a close. We are beat, but it's been worth every tantrum and fist fight we've had today already! We hung out at the @navypierchicago All. Day. Long. We rode the Centennial Wheel and the carousel and spent about 3 hours at the @chicagochildrensmuseum . We took so many amazing photos that I'm not sure I can pick a favorite! This one was snapped by a kind stranger who insisted we capture our matching outfits on film she was adamant about getting the…
7 days agoby mommymywayI'm gonna be honest, today wasn't fun. I even cried. Traveling with a two year old is NOT easy. And I swear I've never been so embarrassed as a parent as I was today. We spent all day at @shedd_aquarium and it was the place I was most excited to visit here. Our last trip to an aquarium was amazing and I was expecting very similar this go around. While the aquarium itself was PHENOMENAL... my child was a legit nightmare. It didn't matter what we did or didn't do, what I said or didn't say, what I bought him…
6 days agoby mommymywayToday was SO much better than yesterday. No meltdowns at all and only a few tears at the very end of the day! And I feel like I hit the dang jackpot let me tell you! We hit @millennium_park and saw the bean and Buckingham Fountain and we played at @maggie .daley.park for a while too. Then we chowed down on deep dish pizza at @giordanospizza and got lost trying to find the car again (we got lost ALOT today ♀️) lol came back to the airbnb for a nap and a change of clothes then headed back out to Willis…
5 days agoby mommymywayWe closed out our Chicago mommy and son vacation on a high note. We got to see real live DINOSAURS today at the @fieldmuseum Jurassic World exhibit and dinosaur skeletons in their evolution space. It was so exciting and the museum was impressively kid friendly. I was expecting a much different environment quite honestly. We finished our day with dinner at Summer House Santa Monica. It was the cutest restaurant with amazing food. Fancy yet casual, just what I was looking for. Z had pancakes for dinner and I had brussel sprouts and tuna & watermelon tostadas with a sparkling…
