I’m as guilty as any mom of going a little overboard occasionally on clothes, especially when my girls were little. There was one Christmas I spent way too many brain cells picking out the perfect coordinating outfits for their Christmas card picture. I’ve finally lightened up to the point where matching t-shirts from Target or Old Navy are just fine, thank you very much.
Let’s face it, though. Most of these diva duds are really just for the bemusement of moms. Enjoy as I poke a little fun at some fashion shots and imagine what these trendy tots are really thinking.
Please take this ridiculous bow off my head NOW before I tip over or a swarm of bees attacks me.
Damn straight my mama paid $57 for this outfit. What are YOU wearing?
Wait, you mean I have to wear leopard again? You know I hate leopard!
DAD, mom just spent our entire Costco monthly budget on this outfit! Sucker!
Mommy, is that chevron? You know chevron gives me nightmares!
If I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a thousand times. I FRIGGIN’ HATE EEYORE.
This will be one of those #letmecatchupandcatchmybreath type posts. Life has been busy with indoor soccer for Miss C wrapping up and Girl Scout Cookie sales madness. On top of that, Miss A has just started gymnastics. I’ve also been battling some super congestion crud that has had me really dragging for the last two weeks. Boo on that and bring on spring!
So without further ado, here are some things I am loving, as well as one product my middle school daughter loves. Several of these items were sent to me recently by Tieks. (such a NICE Valentine’s Day surprise, especially since I felt rather crummy that week.) Not only were the contents amazing, but the packaging was very memorable – a fun heart-shape box in the Tieks signature teal blue that we were able to repurpose for Miss A’s Valentine’s Day school party.
Wearing it and Loving it
Cardinal Red Tieks – The team at Tieks sent me the cutest Valentine’s package as well as brand spankin’ new red Tieks in observance of American Heart Association National Wear Red Day. Did you know that heart disease is more deadly than all forms of cancer combined? Tieks are uber comfy. I already had a leopard pair but the red are a fun addition! These babies have been on Oprah’s list.
Pink Chevron Vineyard Vines Scarf – I am not a big scarf wearer but I’m warming up to them. This beautiful scarf was also stashed in my Valentine’s day goodie package from Tieks. This pretty, feminine scarf is no longer in stock but it’s a fun pink chevron design that is really versatile. Hmmmm, I see more scarves in my future.
Stella & Dot Maya Bracelet – This is my first piece of jewelry from Stella & Dot and I love it! It’s very dainty and simple. Thanks again to Tieks for sharing some pretties with me. I have my eye on the matching necklace! The bracelet is now on sale for just $17.

Speaking of scarves, here’s a helpful post I pinned on 12 Ways to Tie a Scarf.
Here’s another great pin from Putting Me Together featuring 14 outfits created using just 10 pieces (which also incorporates scarves.)
I love discovering new blogs, and I love this new “real” fashion (real as in a busy mom like me could do this) blog called Because Pinterest Told Me To.
It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere
Smirnoff Pineapple Coconut Sorbet Lite Vodka - Smirnoff sent me their latest lite vodka to try out. I’m not a big vodka drinker but I’ve already purchased an additional bottle. Really light smooth delicious flavor and the smell reminds me of the beach! (Which I so need right now!)
Deep Eddy Ruby Red Grapefruit Vodka – I recently tried this and loved it. Maybe I can learn to love vodka. This is a great mixer made in Austin, Texas, and perfect for spring and summer cocktails.
EOS Lip Balm – My 11-year-old is obsessed with these! With fun flavors like Summer Fruit, Honeysuckle Honeydew, and Lemon Drop, and fun packaging, it’s easy to see why. EOS is just plain fun. (Amazon affiliate link included.)
