Holy “It”

  {Behold: Miami’s “It” Girls: Erin, the queen of style herself Elysze, Violet, Maria, Me and Kiddo.} I don’t remember exactly how I met Elysze Held, but moments later I realized she was a legit fashion badass, noted by an Alexander McQueen bag she was carrying, one of two in the entire world. In the time that I’ve known her, I’ve decided I want to be her if/when I grow up. So, when this fashion guru called to say she’d like for Mills and I to participate in her Miami “It” Girls Indulge fashion show at Dadeland Mall, I got all verklempt and my brain went straight to, “Elysze thinks I’m an “it” girl? Mind blown. Winning.” Turns out, being an “it” girl comes with great company: Maria, Erin, Violet and a lucky winner chosen by The Women’s Fund (an org that gives back to women and also our charity…Read More

Happy Mama’s Day

{Wearing: (On me:) Bikini: Maaji. Hat: New York street fair. (On kiddo:) Bikini: Maaji. Hat: H&M. Photographed by me.} What’s my favorite part of being a mom? Jumping around like silly monkeys in matching Maaji bikinis? No, but that’s pretty damn close. My favorite part of being a mom is kid. She’s my favorite part. I have always said that once you have a child it’s as if your heart goes walking around outside of your body. And it’s true. Milly is my heart. Her loves are my loves. Her pains are my pains. Her joys are my joys. And with her in my life, I see the world differently. I hugged her today and told her being her mom is my favorite job. Being a mom has also helped me see my mom in a whole new light. So, as much as this post is about how much I…Read More

The Joys of Motherhood

{Cooking supplies (muffin tin, roller, measuring utensils, oven mitt and whisk) and apron: c/o T.J. Maxx. Photographed by me.} Being a mom is not for the faint of heart. Being a mom and having a job is a juggling act that’s worthy of the center ring at the circus. Being a single mom, having a kid and multiple jobs, well, I’m just going to go ahead and call myself Wonder Woman who has a host of Calgon-take-me-away moments. When it comes to this balancing act, it’s all about maximizing my time. (Breakfast in the car on the way to school while I tie her shoes at red lights? Been there, done that—a lot.) So when T.J. Maxx asked me to share my #MaxxMoms moments in honor of Mother’s Day, I was happy to. Mills and I love to bake together. Plus, when we bake, it means breakfast for the week…Read More

I Let My Six Year Old Dress Me For the Week: Day 5

{Wearing: Top: Touch Boutique. Baroque Print Leggings: c/o Peony & Me. Boots: Vintage. Headband: Urban Outfitters. Photographed by me.} Well, I saved the most outrageous for last. Day 5, or as Milly calls it “French Revolution.” She’s on the money because these Peony & Me leggings are actually called Baroque Print, which neither of us were aware of until a little post-shoot Internet research. Aside from being on the money with the time period aspect, there’s a lot going on here. So, I had to ask: Me: Why this shirt? Mills: Because it looks like the French Revolution. Me: How? Mills: The puffy sleeves. And the boots look like a soldier. Me: And this wreath headband? Mills: I like the leaves. Me: Where would I wear this? Mills: To go shopping. Or a museum. I actually didn’t wear this one past the back yard. Mostly because I had to be in Winter…Read More

Happy Pumpkin Pie Day

{Wearing: Dress: Blush. Necklace: Vintage. Platform Wedges: Aldo. On Kid: Dress: Target. Moto Boots: Gap Kids.} Normally, on Thanksgiving, I launch into some rant about how it’s my least favorite holiday, or go on a tirade about how shopping on Thursday instead of Black Friday is morally wrong because it takes employees away from their family time. Basic “Ginger on her soapbox” regalia. But not today. Today, I’m just grateful for kid. There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for her. And I mean that. In fact, today, I did things that shocked even myself for her. What? The specifics don’t matter. But she does. And that’s what it’s all about, finding that person in life that you would do anything, and I mean anything, for. They take up such space in your heart that you find yourself stepping so far outside of your comfort zone that it amazes even you. And…Read More

Leather Weather

{Wearing: On Me: Dress: Touch. Moto Vest: Vintage. Booties: Bib + Tuck. Bag: Marc Jacobs. Necklace: Vintage from Fly Boutique. Hair: Nue Todd at Nue Studio. On Kid: Top: Gap Kids. Leggings: Target. Booties: Gap Kids. Glasses: c/o OptiWow. Photographed by me.} In recent days, several things have happened to confirm it’s my favorite time of the year: 1) Pumpkin-flavored everything has taken over stores. 2) The Autumn Mix bag of candy corn has arrived. 3) My family is posting pics of the fall festival up north and dropping hints that divinity (my most favorite sweet treat ever) will arrive 4) The guy dressed as Super Mario is back on the corner swinging his Halloween store sign 5) At 8 a.m. in Miami, it’s now 79 degrees, instead of 92. Sure, that may still sound like “summer” to you non-Miamians, but here, it’s legit fall. It’s time to start riding my…Read More

Date Night With My Best Girl

{I’m Wearing: Dress: c/o Market. Hat: H&M. Shoes: Jessica Simpson. Necklace: Vintage. Bag: Vintage Oleg Cassini. On Kiddo: Dress: Tricia Fix. Bag: Gap. Shoes: Target. Glasses: c/o Optiwow. Photographed by Julie Fogel.} Friday night is date night at my house. Kiddo and I spend it one of two ways: We either crawl into my bed and gorge ourselves on what we like call “carb fiesta” and then turn on a Netflix classic, or we get dolled up and hit Lincoln Road for a dinner and a stroll or a movie (depending on what’s playing in the kid realm). Milly always has some sparkling dinner conversation to share, mostly about iPad games, the latest toy craze or a new book she found at the library at school. Although, now she’s decided she has a boyfriend and that gives me the ultimate urge to lock her in a closet until she’s 30….Read More

Storm’s a-brewin’

{Wearing: (Me): Jacket: c/o K-Way Claudette Klassic Printed Logo Stripe. Shorts: ShopBlush.com. Shoes:  Converse c/o Sawgrass Mills. (On Kiddo): Jacket: c/o K-Way Calude Klassic Kids Printed Logo Stripe. Dress: H&M. Shoes:  Converse c/o Sawgrass Mills. Summer in Miami goes a little like this: Sunshine, 100 percent humidity, clouds that resemble the nothing, end of days rainstorm, sunshine and 10,000 percent humidity five minutes later. It’s the most predictable unpredictability ever. In fact, I’m pretty sure the weather man just puts rain on the forecast for the week from May through August and heads out on vacay, because he/she knows it’s going to happen at some point. And it does. Milly and I caught a wicked storm the other day. The winds were blowing so hard we couldn’t keep the hair out of our faces, hence the mustaches. We snapped these pics in our matching K-Way raincoats just before the first few drops…Read More

My Summer Girl

  {On Me: Crop Top: c/o H&M. High-waisted Shorts: c/o French Connection. Sneaks: Converse c/o Sawgrass Mills. Necklace: Vintage. Bag: Kate Spade c/o TJ Maxx. Hat: New York Street Fair. On Kiddo: Top: Gap Kids. Shorts: Gap Kids. Hat: H&M. Necklace: H&M. Sneaks: Gap Kids. Photographed by moi.} I asked Mills late in spring what she wanted to do this summer. I told her we could go anywhere she wanted. I was fully prepared to spend the day with Mickey and Minnie and 10,000 other tourists schlepping kids around the blazing inferno that is Disney, but she shocked me when she told me she’d rather go to New York and do some shopping, see the sights and eat at a few places she’d seen on TV. Clearly, this is my child through and through. So I did it. I traveled alone with my kiddo for the first time in my life. And…Read More
