Bell sleeves for $16

You'll thank me when you get this Make Me Chic blouse and find out it's a great buy to wear year round! As I head back to work after a sweet summer break I find myself freezing in the building but then again can you wear boots and a wool sweater when it's 90 degrees outside? The answer is no, unless we want to look cookoo!! The solution is something that goes well with your summer and your fall wardrobe, like this blouse! It keeps me warm inside and it's flowy and summery at the same time! Which btw I REALLY would like to talk about how crazy air conditioning here in the US is, like for reals!! But that would really take over the whole post and perhaps upset some folks so I'm…

B-Day Vibes À La Ms. Bradshaw

Olá my friends! Happy 3.8 to moi, I can't believe I'm one step closer to the big 40's, but hey what counts is how young we are at heart, right?? To celebrate this epic date (in my life!) I had to wear the puffiest most adorable skirt I could find and say hey little heart of mine, keep up that cheerful youth because if you don't it'll only go downhill from now!! Hehehehe [caption id="attachment_7100" align="aligncenter" width="681"] All photo credits to Shelly Ruth Photography[/caption] [show_shopthepost_widget id="2762710"] I love to mix the statement girly pieces with simple and minimal ones, that makes it more wearable, gives that piece longevity and doesn't date the look. Like hello Carrie Bradshaw from the early 2000's!! I would also pair the skirt up with a satin cami in gray…

The day is here when the sale is actually open to the public and not only card holders! Therefore I decided to join a many fashion and lifestyle bloggers around the country and round-up my favorite picks from the sale. I hope you enjoy them and find a great fall piece with 40% off.

Open Back Tie Top

Retailers are starting to get to fall fashion pretty quickly and I thought this would be a good time to feature the tops I've been wearing non-stop and think they are great year round pieces! Not to mention their price tag which is pretty amazing!! *Thanks to Make me Chic for sponsoring this post, and cheers for this baby being on sale!! [show_shopthepost_widget id="2748021"]   Can't wait to style this again with a pair of leather pants or a sleek pencil skirt. The obvious skinnies are also a great call to pair it with. What are your thoughts?! Beijos and happy monday! -K

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 🇺🇸 [show_shopthepost_widget id="2717590"] Sophia jumped into this collab with open arms....literally!! And she sure showed her inner diva! Haha Couldn't pick my fave! Sorry for the overload!! [show_shopthepost_widget id="2717616"] [show_shopthepost_widget id="2717614"] Confession: I'm dying with…

Chicago Mommy & Me Style

I was so sure I would be having lots of time to blog my little life away during summer  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  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!!…

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
