So many of these pieces will take you into the summer months as well. As a mom of two young children, I try to be mindful of my fashion and make it cute AND practical.

I literally laughed out loud when I saw a Mom sipping wine with this t-shirt on at the airport. Leave it to Amazon to have the perfect t-shirt for a family vacation!

Finally Comfortable in My Blogging Journey

When social media first took footing it was very easy to judge, especially coming from a conservative Indian culture. I remember being a part of the beginning stages of platforms like MySpace and Friendster.

Now, in my late 30s, I respect those who had put themselves out there from the very beginning. It takes time to learn who you are and what you stand for. It also takes time to learn to let go of the judgment.

In the beginning of our blog I was nervous to put myself out there. I was nervous about the judgement, to be more specific.  What were followers
going to say, you’re not fashionable? You’re not pretty? You don’t have the perfect life?!

Whatever my fears were, they have been conquered.

I’ve learned that being a part of any social media platform, you are often forced to read the good, the bad, and the ugly about yourself. I’ve learned you can’t satisfy everyone. Some people will love you, and some will hate you.  When you fall somewhere in a space where YOU are comfortable, it no longer matters what anyone thinks about your journey.

Whatever journey it is you choose, I hope that you find peace in knowing it’s about YOU and no one else.

Social media has given an opportunity for non-multimillion dollar backed celebrity endorsed products to be promoted on a genuine platform.

Where to Find The Trendiest Fall Styles

The days of brick and mortar shopping are a thing of the past. As Amazon has personally taken over my shopping habits, I’ve found Trunk Club for Women to be my next favorite way to shop.  I’ve always loved to play dress up, but never enjoyed the process of digging through racks to find what I want.

How it works:

You visit Trunk Club’s website and fill out a profile.  Once completed, the website will match you with a stylist who will select curated items from @Nordstrom that fit your needs. 

I’ve been using my personal stylist @laurenhookham for a few years now and she hits the nail on the head every time!  You can bypass working with someone who hasn’t been vetted and reach her directly by clicking on this link: www.trunkclub.com/mystylist/lhookham

I met Lauren after filling out my profile in their beautiful downtown location. @Trunkclubwomen has multiple locations throughout the Chicago area that make for a perfect setting to find the perfect outfit (I’ve even taken girlfriends there over some champagne for shopping parties)!  

In our first meeting she came prepared with a few selected outfits she thought matched my initial profile. To be honest, I didn’t love all of her selections the first time around. Just like anything else, it takes time to develop a relationship and understanding about what the other person is looking for.

Over time, we have developed an understanding of what my style, size and needs are!  Now when she sends a Trunk, I like majority of the selections she’s made.  Since @TrunkClubwomen is in partnership with Nordstrom, you know what you’re getting is going to be good quality. I can’t always say for my Amazon purchases. What I love most about it is once you find someone who gets you, you can get trunks seasonally to keep you stylish without any of the effort of following trends and digging through racks of clothing.

If you are a Nordstrom card holder the $25 styling fee gets waived AND you get points for your purchases…what’s best is it shows up at your front door so need need to put in any extra effort!  Could this seriously get any better?! Click here to join now: http://www.trunkclub.com/invite/293MAC

Clear, well, EVERYTHING!

Let’s talk pumps….they are a year-round shoe after all!  This Spring and Summer I saw clear pumps everywhere, of course I had to scoop up a pair of my own! Clear handbags, clear pumps, clear backpacks they are all the rage and sooooo cute!  Be on the look out for my clear booties this winter!

In my latest @shopakira haul I scooped up a pair of my favorite Azeala Wang PVC pumps. Priced at under $50 these shoes can be worn both up and down.

I have styled them a multitude of different ways and have gotten so many compliments!  I have to say though, not all shoes are created equal. As women, we all know the pain heels can cause on the balls of our feet.  Azeala Wang beat us to the complaint. There is an extra cushion that gives the perfect support to keep you dancing all night without any of the pain!
