What's On My Radar: Current Loves

Yes, the holidays are just around the corner.  But more importantly, my birthday is coming at the end of the year!  As usual, I have already started my wishlist because it's never too early to let everyone know what you want :).  Here are my picks this month:

Modcloth:
dropping by for a visit dress

This Dear Creatures dress has the perfect print and feminine pleating on the skirt.  I know it's another blue dress (I have a problem), but I think it's so unique and worth adding to my closet.

sights to season dress 
I don't think I could ever have enough landscape printed dresses!  This one is perfect for the fall and would look wonderful with a bright contrasting colored cardigan.

retro on the metro coat 
I know I don't have much use for coats in southern California, but it doesn't hurt to own a really cute one on the few days I'd need it!  I think the little bows below the pockets are my favorite.

the nicolette dress 
I love the new collection from Nicolette Mason!  This dress needs to be added to my closet for three reasons: pink, polka dots, and a big bow.  Her whole collection accommodates up to a size 4X which is absolutely wonderful.

Ruche:
harlan heels bait footwear 
I'm not a fan of a lot of B.A.I.T. styles, but these heels are gorgeous!  A mom on the go loves a cute kitten heel that's practical for everyday wear.

mountain slope sweater 
This isn't something I would normally wear, but now that Bianca is big enough to enjoy the park I need some casual wear!  The lace underlay takes this sweater from boring to feminine.

dorothy peep toe heels by restricted 
I have a weird obsession with mustard pieces.  I own a mustard cardigan that's about eight years old and way past its prime.  I think it's time to replace it with another mustard beauty :).

a romantic night lace dress 
I love lace.  It automatically makes me feel pretty!  Unlike my wedding dress, this is a casual take on one of my favorite looks.

Have you started planning for the holidays yet?  I'm hoping to get my shopping done before December rolls around.  Let's see if I actually get that done...

Three Roses

Bernie Dexter Rose Pin Up dress in red dog print 004

This dress, by far, is the most worn piece in my closet.  I pay extra special attention to it because it fits well, is super comfortable, and has chihuahuas printed on it.  I was actually saving this outfit for a special shoot.  I wanted to go somewhere cool and take my three boys with me, but that has been nearly impossible.  Heck, this one picture alone was tough enough!  I've never been able to take a picture with the three of them actually looking at the camera but I think that would be asking too much of a dog.  Anyway, this was the result and I'm pretty happy with it.

Bright on Schedule

Modcloth Geode Bright On Schedule dress 008

It's always a good thing when I can actually get out and take pictures away from my home.  I miss the days of just feeling too embarrassed to go out and take them.  Now I need to pick my outfit, do my hair and makeup, and pack everything up while caring for a nine month old baby.  Now that the weather is finally starting to cool down, the thought of taking these little trips isn't so daunting.  Although this particular day was rough.  Just about a foot away to the left my very unhappy child was screaming at me to finish up.  I basically took these in less than five minutes and got the heck out of there!

Garden Sketch

Modcloth Garden Sketch dress 005

I've avoided anything with buttons down the front for the past year.  When your proportions are completely off (no thanks to breastfeeding) one of two things happen.  Either the fit in the waist is perfect and it's completely gaping in the bust, or I'm swimming in the waist but the bust actually fits.  Because I buy almost all of my clothing online, it's just easier to avoid these situations all together.  Since I'm almost finished breastfeeding I've decided to revisit this adorable style.  It's still a tad small in the bust (but not terrible) and by the beginning of next year I'm sure it will fit perfectly.  It's exciting and also somewhat sad to see this period of time end.  I'm going to enjoy these last three months to the fullest!
