Outfit Idea // Blogger Mom

Sometimes I'm a "mom blogger," but I'm always a blogger mom.  My life takes takes me from commuting professional to toddler mom.  It's always a mad rush from here to there.  But a life I have embraced, loved and leaned into.  This is all the more reason why I am on my quest for a capsule wardrobe.  I hope to find the perfect combo that works for me, always leaves me feeling chic and put together, but takes me from working life to mom life.  Furthermore, I hope that once I hone in to find this wardrobe to inspire other working mamas (or just mamas, or just professionals).  Lately I have been loving the assortment at Tobi.  They have lots and lots of styles that suit a variety of lifestyles.  I am love love loving this chic and easy open back top.  It is so perfect to take me from my day job life to home life.  It could not be more comfy, but the open back detail also makes it chic and little bit sexy.  More versatile pieces like these are essential to every woman's wardrobe.

I've paired the top with my new favorite "mom jeans," which are super duper affordable from Levi's, called the Wedgie Fit.  I am also wearing Chloe sandals I've been obsessing over for years that I found on eBay and a vintage bag that once belonged to my grandma.

One Room Challenge // Week 2

Week one of the One Room Challenge is in the books.  In case you missed last week's post, here is the link.  I am embarking on turning our one car, garage, that currently looks like your basic garage, with messy, mis-matched storage, sporting equipment strewn about.  My plan is to turn this place into a super functional studio space for large projects, with lots of great storage solutions.

Right now, it looks like a tornado hit it, as I've taken everything off the walls to start painting.  So progress photos are not really exciting just yet.  I have ambitious plans for this week, including painting the rest of the walls, hang the cabinets and start to install shelving and peg board on the back wall.  I've been giving a lot of thought to how I want this space to function and spent a good chunk of time researching other people's beautiful studio spaces.  Below are the blueprints for the key organization areas.

Once the shelving is up, I am thrilled to refinish the floors with Rust-oleum Rock Solid Garage floor refinishing kit.  A HUGE thank you to Rust-oleum for sending!!
