3 Ways to Wear a Blazer from Fashion Week Street Style

October 14, 2017

Fashion week is barely in our rear view and the next is already approaching but we all know the most important aspect of every fashion week is street style. As the It Girls of the fashion world convene in a city-to- city tour of the Big Four, New York, London, Milan and Paris while I sit on my couch watching Netflix, searching Pinterest recipes and other basic bitch past times my Pinterest is then taken over by Fashion Week Street Style and I go into full critique mode hosting my own episode of What Not to Wear from said couch.

My favorite mix of street style is the marriage of high end and low end with contrast, to me street style is meant to be self-expression with a bit of pea-cocking avant-garde all while being effortless. I am a fan of any outfit that includes a jacket, I will pick out a jacket for an outfit before purse or jewelry and it could be 99 degrees out. It just brings everything together, so styling a blazer is essentially my street style.

Here  is an anxiety-free, panic free guide on how to travel with a baby.
I have used every item I am recommending!

Short on time? Pin the complete checklist to use later.

My friend texted me saying how I must have a “chill” baby because we have traveled so much with him, I actually laughed out loud… my midwife called him a Drama King at 2 weeks old! “chill” is not an adjective used to describe him.

Don’t be discouraged if your baby is not calm or is colicky, like Langston, you can still travel and explore!

Let me paint you a visual picture..

Motherhood: Natural Birth Story (6 Months Later)

October 4, 2017

Thank you all so much for your support and kind words as we shared such a scary moment in our lives. Baby Zuend, whose name is Langston Raffael was born on April 4, 2017 at 2:24 pm.

He is 6 months old today!

And is an active, happy, loud and fun baby boy with the determination of an old soul.

He rules our home with more personality than I could have ever imagined, he loves to eat and play and he lets you know when it is time to do either!

I wasn’t too sure what to make this first post about but a lot of my friends are scared sh+tless to have a baby so I’ll start the “Motherhood Series” with a good ole birth story… only continue if you’re into that (or nosey like me) if not just browse photos of this cutey, despite all my work he looks just like his dad. It’s a medical miracle because I pretty much cloned a human being.

Pregnancy after Loss: Rainbow Baby

March 21, 2017

This post has been sitting in the depths of my mind for months at this point. Pregnancy is a time for joy and excitement with the expectations of meeting your baby; but after losing a baby the beauty of pregnancy is easily overshadowed with fear, anxiety and stress. In today’s time we share every detail of our lives and are the most vulnerable to people via social media. As a blogger I really struggle with this. As a blogger I love to share experiences and I answer many e-mail and direct messages personally to share my journey but I do not share my personal journey as openly but today I will share my story… fear, anxiety and all.

Vulnerability is a part of my journey.

July 4, 2016

Celebrating the 4th of July in Europe is of course not the same as when I am back “home” in the US. There are no fireworks or major celebrations but there is a bit of time to reflect on how my lifestyle has differed.

Slay Couple Wedding Style

A wedding in a castle nestled in the South of France, I am pretty sure that is the premise for every happily ever-after, old school-Disney-princess movie. With wedding season chasing every 20 something-to-30 something through social media we are officially at that age… where every update is a wedding or a baby announcement. But does it get any sweeter than an invite to wedding in the South of France? Continue Reading…
