Life Lately...

These past 2 weeks have been crazy! All good things...friends in town, blogger events, speaking engagements, and the best part Fall is finally here! 

I got to bust out my new J.Crew Peacoat. I love this coat, it's so classic and perfect for my lifestyle...running around, toting kids, or going to client appointments. It's also not too heavy, which is great for KC weather. 

I attended Mom's Night Out at J.Crew last night where they were doing fun hair style sessions with KC's newest Blow Dry /Beauty Bar; Parlor. I got a Power Pony which was a sleek pony with just a little bit of volume in the back. I wore my favorite Madewell denim shirt and coral skinny zip cords from H&M ( I LIVE in these pants...I think I need another color!)

I love now that it is cooler to be able to accessorize not only myself, but the kids with fun hats and gloves. This cashmere beanie with flower was a hand me down from a friend, isn't it precious?

Last week I also got to see my great friend Mollie and founder of my company Style Spies. She was in town from Chicago to help me co-host a presentation for the Delta Gamma Alumni Association of Kansas City. We shared the Do's and Don'ts of closet organization and also had some models show off some great fall trends from stores like Hot Mama, Standard Style and Frankly Basic (which are all now in the One Nineteen Shops). I wore my favorite spotted peplum top from H&M, accessorized with the fabulous Stella and Dot Pegasus necklace. 

This weekend is pretty quiet...looking forward to getting my hair cut and colored. Which I need BADLY! House Hunting and hosting a couple for dinner tonight. I am excited to just cozy in with this cooler weather. What are your plans for the weekend?

    1. Yes!!!!! Looking to be further North by next Spring. We looked at a house on Meyer...gorgeous on the outside, great bones, but would need SO MUCH WORK. And the sellers disclosure was 7 pages long. ugh.

  4. Drooling over the peacoat, it's so perfect! Got the Madewell shirt this week and I LOVE LOVE it!

  5. I had no idea you were a fellow DG! How did you like the blow out?

  6. Love your peacoat and I would love it if you could share some closet do's and don't with us?!

  7. we just had a drybar open here in STL and I am dying to try it!!

  8. Your peacoat is adorable! You have inspired me to pull out my Paul and Joe style from a few years back. Is your spotted peplum top a recent purchase? I just love it layered with that fabulous necklace. Vivienne looks precious all bundled up, too.

    1. Thanks Kyle! I got the top at H&M in august I believe, it was $14!!!!!
