I’m definitely late on the blogger train to do a fall fashion write up, but it literally JUST got cold here in the Sacramento area so I’m just now finally thinking about dressing warmer.
I’m also not one to flaunt my fashion sense and I do NOT consider myself a “fashion blogger.” The thought of taking daily selfies in my mom getups makes me laugh hysterically. My body has changed since having kids and I’m definitely guilty of wearing leggings too often. However, that doesn’t mean I don’t like to feel cute on my nights out sans kids. Once upon a time in the early 2000’s I was voted “Best Dressed” at my high school — there is still a fashionista longing to make an appearance, it just gets buried with sick kids, sleep deprivation and constant messes.
No mom wants to look like the SNL mom jeans era mom when they’re out with their girlfriends or husband. Sometimes I get stuck when I finally have to put an outfit together – like it doesn’t come as naturally to me as it once did. Stuff that was cool five years ago was like yesterday to me and is probably still in my closet. But to a 25 year old, five years ago was like what ten years ago feels like to me. Make sense?
This is why I need help. Like if it weren’t for all the real fashion bloggers I follow on Instagram, I probably wouldn’t have the balls to wear chokers this season because they remind me of 6th grade. (some of my favorite fashion bloggers are Cara Loren, Sassy Red Lipstick and Ella Brooks Blog).
Thankfully, one of my best friends just happens to be a stylist in NYC and I’m pretty much obsessed with everything she wears. You can read a little about her background here, but I’ve got the exclusive on my little blog about what her top fall fashion must haves are.

  1. Plum colored lipstick: Tom Ford Bruised Plum Lipstick

  2. Velvet denim: PAIGE Verdugo Deep Emerald Velvet

  3. Lovely lace: Club Monaco Ahorn Lace Top

  4. Plaid & oversized scarves: I love a ruffled plaidor blush coloring for a more feminine take on the plaid print

  5. Suede over the knee boots

  6. Chokers (Nordstrom has a ton of cute ones)

  7. Silk scarves tied around the neck Dolce & Gabbana Tulip-print silk scarf

One question I had for Phoebe was whether or not I can still wear tights (I wore them in my holiday photos). I used to wear tights all the time, but I feel like I never see them anymore. I think it’s partly because its warmer here than in NYC, but it was friggin’ cold last night! If I want to wear a dress, I want to know I’m not going to look stupid wearing tights! Here’s what she said…
“YES, tights are still in!! Black tights with a black dress is divine. Pretty socks with heels is still in, too (I remember us talking about this years ago!). People wear tights with everything here – with shorts, dresses, skirts, under jeans… though if it’s under jeans it’s usually knee high socks, not full tights. Knee high socks with skirts and dresses and with knee high boots is also a great look.”
Could I be any luckier to have this girl at my fingertips? Comment below with any fashion questions and I’ll be sure to get you an answer! Happy shopping! xo

  • Had the best Sunday celebrating the birthday twins 👯 🎂 Today @ktrec and tomorrow, @laurenerickson1027. I’m sure glad these two babes were born 34 years ago...these girls are my sunshine on a cloudy day ❤️ ⛅️ swipe for some major throwbacks ➡️
  • Fridays are for flashbacks, so here I am 26 years young after I had just said my vows to the love of my life @ryancurtismitchell. My bouquet was so heavy, my forearms were sore for days afterwards 💐🏋🏻‍♀️😂
  • “The days are long but the years are short”
💫
Today I’ve been reflecting a little bit on time as we approach the year 2019; just one year shy of the year 2020, which kind of boggles my mind when I sit and really think about it. 💫
How has it really been that long? I had Porter in 2013 when I was 28 years old and in so many ways it feels like yesterday. How am I in my mid thirties already? How was college graduation literally 11.5 years ago? How is it that Ryan and I have been together for 10 years and married for 6? 💫
My 92 year old grandmother often tells me she doesn’t feel 92 and I’m really starting to understand. I guess all we can do in this life is appreciate every moment because in a blink of an eye, we will wonder how that said moment was so long ago. 💫
This also makes me think about how life is too short to spend time with negative people or drink bad wine. And also I need to get some Botox. 😂🍷💉
  • I graduated from high school in 2003, so I vividly remember the days of film/photo albums. As digital cameras and social media took over, printing photos became kind of a rare thing for me to do. I’ve had so many scares where I think digital photos have been lost forever and I personally know people who have tragically lost precious baby/wedding photos 😭. So when I got the opportunity to partner up with @google using Google Photos, I was intrigued! On my phone and within literally FIVE minutes, I was able to create this album of our trip to Maui from over the summer. It was the easiest thing ever using the Google Photos app, cost about $20, and they have free standard shipping until 12/12! This album has already been a coffee table conversation piece and my kids have been fondly reminiscing our trip 😍. My new normal is definitely to have Google Photo albums! These are also awesome Christmas gifts 🎁🤩#googlephotos #photobooks #googlepartner
  • Christmas magic through their eyes ✨🎄🎅🏻
  • Yesterday we had our first parent-teacher conference for TK and it turned out to be much more thorough than I would have imagined. It was so amazing to hear feedback from his teacher about this boy we’ve been trying to mold & raise for the past 5 years. So many things said about him that made me just beam with pride, but the most profound praise was that he exhibits an unusual sense of empathy and compassion for others. If there was any one trait in this world I could hope for my kids to have, it would be that❤️ #portercurtis
  • Porter: I wish it was Saturday.
.
Me: Why?
.
Porter: So I can be here and do hugs with you all day.
.
Porter said this to me as I was hugging him. He went from driving me crazy (arguing with basically everything I say all day, urrrday) to making me cry with his sweet words. Hello emotional roller coaster 🤪😭😍❤️
  • When you rush into your toddler’s room because of the silence and find this 🤷🏻‍♀️. I don’t even know who you are anymore Presto 😂 #prestonhenry #thisistwo
  • Thankful for these goofs today and everyday 💙💙 #porterandprestonm #builtinbestfriend @dianaelenaphotos
