White Lace

You already know I love everything black and/or white, no news there. But white has really been making me extra happy this summer! And when you throw some beautiful intricate lace in the mix, man oh man that's the recipe for success!!! That being said I wanted to share my latest love, this Chic Wish midi dress that can be worn in a casual way (think straw hat and plain accessories) or as a statement dress for a more formal occasion (think hair do, stronger make up and sparkly jewelry!!) [caption id="attachment_7035" align="aligncenter" width="681"] Photo credits: Shelly Ruth Photography [/caption] [show_shopthepost_widget id="2735636"] Chic Wish caters to the woman who loves feminine styles. They appeal to different generations of women with well made clothes for an amazing price point! Delivery was flawless and after my…

NOLA Outfit Roundup

Hello hello ladies and gents! Gosh if you're on insta chances are you followed along our anniversary trip to NOLA. I'm still in awe about everything we saw and did....and ate and drank! Hahaha great food guys, very dangerous!!!! Ok so while I am in fact planning a NOLA post with the attractions and favorite places to see and eat, I decided to split this post in two because the outfits alone made a whole story of its own. So many gorgeous backdrops between the French Quarter and the Garden district...you shall see them :) Starting off with the softest most comfy jumpsuit I picked to travel with. Performed perfectly and I brought along a denim jacket in case it got too cold in the plane. [show_shopthepost_widget id="2730108"] I ended up wearing it for…

B&W go together like PB&J

Hi guys, I know everyone is talking about 4th of July vibes but y'all know I like to be different (well sometimes!!) so here we go with some good B&W to break from the red, white and blue!!!! Just yesterday I was talking to my bestie and she made a comment on how only me to pull off this Make me Chic top, but for the first time I disagree with her....sorry Kris!!! Hahaha I honestly think this top is so easy to style and wanted to do something less expected to give you some good inspo. This is a sure way to start a convo ladies, you should try it!! [caption id="attachment_6991" align="aligncenter" width="684"] Photo Credits: Shelly Ruth Photography[/caption] [show_shopthepost_widget id="2740297"] If you are thinking about getting this top or even something similar…

4th of July Summer Vibes with Vineyard Vines Indy

Last week we partnered with Vineyard Vines Indy to style a photo shoot with a mommy and me approach. To be honest I was expecting to have to beg my two youngsters to join in, but to my surprise they were super excited to do pics with a pro photographer! Hahaha yes, I guess they are fine as long as it's not mommy taking the pics....annoying for me but hey, I'll take it!! All photos credit to Kelly Brannon Photography And if you are looking for some good old fourth family inspo I hope you can find it here πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ [show_shopthepost_widget id="2717590"] Sophia jumped into this collab with open arms....literally!!

Chicago Mommy & Me Style

I was so sure I would be having lots of time to blog my little life away during summer Β break and here I am again, struggling to make it happen at uh....11pm on Monday! Well, I've decided to straighten the priorities once again and Le Blog didn't come in first, nor second or third but it's high up on the list still and I hope you're happy about it!! A couple of weeks ago Bella and I went up to Chicago to work in a Β photo shoot for Holly & Tanager handbags and since my bestie Kris was heading up there two days earlier to catch a flight to Brazil I decided to anticipate our trip, give Kris a ride, get a cheap hotel and enjoy my favorite Midwestern city with my oldest baby!!…

Summer Essentials

Hi boys and girls, how's your summer going? Well I know it's not quite summer yet but it sure feels like it is here in Indy.....I've been meaning to put together a video with my summer essentials and after gathering my "can't live without" products I ended up missing a couple 😰 blaming on hectic mommy life!!! [show_shopthepost_widget id="2710223"] When I filmed the video the weather was pretty amazing and humidity free, no longer like that let me tell ya! So as far as the hair spray, it's been put to the test and it's been performing quite amazingly!! Just a heads up :) Hope you guys enjoy this video and tell me what your essentials are!! Guys I'm putting together a quick giveaway for the blog only, I know it's been a while so…

Bandeau & Skirt Combo

I'm dying over the washed out blue and white stripes print but when they come in a two piece matchy-matchy girly look I'm left here drooling! The cool thing about this outfit is that we purchase them together (for the price of one, let me tell ya!) and can wear the pieces separately, which I'll make sure I'll feature on insta here soon. Meantime enjoy the pieces together! As far as Bella's concerned it's a show stopper or perhaps a head turner as she spotted! Haha it's sweet to see my teen daughter taking good care of mama bear here!! [show_shopthepost_widget id="2708533"] Cheers for two piece matchy-matchy girly looks!!!! Stay tuned for my summer essentials video coming up tomorrow :) Beijos, -K

The Hampton Social (last chance to enter H&T giveaway!!)

I was really looking forward to write this post as this place is sooooo worth a whole post of its own! Thanks to Andrea who pushed for a visit there we were able to come together and not only shoot at The Hampton Social but have lunch and drinks there too!! Courtesy of the lovely ladies of Holly & Tanager. The place's atmosphere is very nautical and feels right out of a Ralph Lauren ad. "The Hampton Social, found in the River North neighborhood of Chicago, IL, first opened its doors in August 2015. The lifestyle concept - owned, operated and designed by restaurateur Brad Parker - is a restaurant hotspot that evokes East Coast living in every aspect." - THS websiteΒ located at River North 353 Hubbard St. Sunset Beach (el jimador tequila, peloton…

Scallops & Ruffles

Back from Chitown and getting back in the blogging groove! We got soooo many beautiful shots I can't wait to share with you guys!! And despite the wind we manage toΒ shoot this one shoulder frill dress that's been hanging in my closet for waaaay too long! [show_shopthepost_widget id="2695534"] I have to admit the hem was too long for my height so I had to knot the skirt and pull a little creativity to make this baby work! I'll be shortening the dress so I can wear more often because these ruffles and scallops definitely have my heart! Like I mentioned on instagram this shot was done with the iphone 7 and my oh my!!! There's definitely some killing photos that can be done with this little machine, must have for the avid photographers/bloggers! Also,…
