How fun are these wide leg jeans! I finally bit the bullet and purchased a pair of wide leg, cropped jeans for the summer season as an alternate to my beloved boyfriend jeans. It seemed like it was about time to have an alternate pair of jeans, since I have all but abandoned my skinny jeans.

These cropped wide leg jeans are super comfortable; and fun! I love the bleached design at the crop. Since I am 5’4″, the regular size hits me at the ankles. Maybe I should have ordered petite? If I was taller, it would hit me a couple inches above the ankles; which I think looks amazing. If there were not details on the edges of the jeans, I would cut them to be a little bit higher.

I wore this outfit last weekend for a sushi dinner with my family. it was our second time eating at Sushi Confidential in downtown Campbell. The food was really good, so we had a lot of fun! If you are local, be sure to check it out!

My nine-year-old son took these photos. He was so cute trying to work my dslr camera! It is fun teaching him photography. I love how my two younger kids love to learn photography.

What are your thoughts on the cropped wide leg jeans trend? Is this a trend you plan to wear?

Thanks for stopping by!

Essie Speed Setter top coat review

pictured, both c/o Essie: portable iPhone charger / Essie Speed Setter top coat

I am so excited to talk about the new Essie Speed Setter top coat that just launched this month! As you know, I love to paint my nails. I often change my nail color, and enjoy playing with new colors. This can be a time consuming habit as I am also an extremely busy Mom!

With three kids, who have three sets of activities, and one of which I homeschool, I have my hands full. The last thing I have time to deal with, is a messed up manicure. After I paint my nails, I need to be able to get moving! Essie’s new Speed Setter top coat is a total game changer for me! It literally speed dries my mani! Love that!

The new Essie Speed Setter top coat not only speed dries my nails, it offers a high gloss shine which adds a bit of luxury to my nails. It also helps my nail polish last longer without chipping. This is key since my nails take a beating from house-cleaning, and being constantly on the go! You know the type of “on the go” I mean; when you don’t have time to take a breath or charge your phone! I literally have a case full of portable phone chargers to get me through life! haha

I’m in love with the new Essie Speed Setter top coat since it dries and hardens my mani in under one minute. I can continue with my life, and keep my kids on schedule; without worrying about my manicure chipping, smudging, or getting fabric imprints! (fabric imprints are so annoying!!) Love it!

Designer sales to kick off summer 2017

The designer sales are here! This means we can all find fabulous items from Chloe, Valentino, Gucci, Manolo Blahnik, Stella McCartney, Balenciaga, Aquazzura, and more on major sale! Yay!

I’m in shock! My favorite leopard print pumps are on major sale! These pumps are classic, pointy tote high heels which are made from suede and offer a classic leopard print. They are super comfortable, and I have actually had to run in them! No joke! My middle child used to like to run away from us, and I had to chase her down so she would not run into the street while wearing these heels a couple of years ago. Thankfully she has outgrown the dangerous running habit; seriously, it was stressful!

If you are looking for a fabulous pair of pumps, these are perfect! They are comfortable, classic, and since leopard print is hot for summer 2017, and fall 2017, they are on trend! Love that!

In addition to my beloved heels being on major sale, there are a few Chloe Drew’s on sale! I have one in off-white and I love it. If you have been eyeing the Chloe Drew, now is the time to snap one up!

I also found a couple of Balenciaga City Tote’s on sale! Eeeek! They NEVER go on sale. I bought a City Tote back in 2009 and I still love it. These are great casual handbags which are also extremely classic. If you have been on the fence about getting one, this is a great opportunity to grab one at a great price!

There are so many amazing deals right now so I rounded them up and placed my favorites in the collage below.

Such a great deal!) / Chloe Drew (great deal!!)

There are so many fabulous designer items on sale around the web right now. I sorted through them all and found the best deals on classic and on-trend items I think you would love. I know I love them!! Without further adieu, here are my picks from the designer sales!
