look of the day: mom of the birthday boy!

My mini monster River turned 3 years old yesterday! We started our day of celebrating with brunch downtown on the River.

look of the day: i’ve got double designers

I have to admit, for my live morning news show segment yesterday on San Antonio Living, I did not outfit plan.  I knew that I wanted to wear my new skull scarf, but other than that, nada.

Here’s the outfit that I put together the morning of.





Basic black tee, my new skull scarf I got for $8 at no more rack, green Lee skinny jeans, and leopard print booties from forever 21. Add red lips, my gold cuff from Otra Vez Couture Consignment, a Marc Jacobs tote to hold all the needed props for my TV segment and my black leather Michael Kors bag and I’d say I did a pretty good job!


$0.99 nail polishes!??!

I just happened to stumble upon this happy little sale on forever21.com.  Nail polish’s are on sale for only 99 cents! Head over here to check out the great selection of color.
