Wearing what you love is a blissful combination of self- expression embodied with whatever kind of sass you want to deliver. It can be a full scream, a whisper or anything inbetween. What matters is that the choice is done on terms that empower you to be your best self. I've fallen prey to wearing styles that I love that didn't look so hot on me. I look back at these photos and all that jumps out is "what the hell was I thinking?" I've learned to merge the knowledge of what works on my body with styles that I love. Finding those parts of your body that you want to celebrate will reward you with a sense of freedom to choose how you show up. You feeling and being comfortable in your skin is your journey. The goal isn’t to be a replica of what you see. It’s acknowledging that today and tomorrow you will choose YOU and that’s a beautiful thing.
We are sometimes made to to feel that if we wait long enough somewhere along this journey we’ll find someone or something to make us feel worthy. That the creation of our worth is outside of OUR control. I will say that nothing has taught me more about defining my own sense of value and worth than realizing that it is enough to show up just as I am. We short change ourselves by believing that when we "fill in the blank", then we'll deserve that love, admiration, respect. That only then, we will be worthy. I see worthiness as a declaration of self ownership. It's the vital space you give yourself to believe that even in the most trying moments, you matter. I'm sharing below what has helped me to write my own narrative of self worth. It's a process that unfolds each day, it's a practice.
WORDS MATTER, ESPECIALLY THE ONES YOU SAY TO YOURSELF
We've all done it. Whether it's alone in our bedroom, to a friend, a stranger or a passing thought as you glance in a mirror. The use of dismantling words that we say to ourselves or those that we've absorbed from others is destructive. So I want you to stop it!!! (Said in my sass filled Mama tone). You are in the process of creating your best self and that major dinosaur size step starts with the language you use towards yourself. Be kind, respectful and allow yourself the room to love yourself no matter what.
YOUR TRIBE MATTERS
It's simple. The company you keep should reinforce your worth ( You're amazing!); Motivate you to grow and be challenged ( Get it and you got this!!); Call you out on your bullshit ( Get it together); know when to drop it low and have fun ( Insert dance groove here). Ok the last one isn't necessary but it's certainly recommended ;) Every person that comes into your life adds an element to who you are or what you're becoming. I remember making exhausting efforts to alter what I thought others wanted me to be. It happens. I learned. Now the influence and its effect occurs on my own terms.
SHOW OTHERS THAT THEY ARE WORTHY
A kind word or action can have this transformative experience. No matter the size, it can impact how someone is feeling that day, that moment. I don't take for granted what others might be going through. This is what makes our co existing together so powerful. It grants us the permission to affect each other in the most positive way.
So I'm saying to you that you are wonderful, necessary and full of worth. Go share this with someone else.

I don't really know when it happens. That moment you get in good with who you are and stop the hater talk. For me it's a gradual process that unfolds when you start DOING stuff aka living your life. This means showing up for all the parts of life that comes your way, especially the really hard and challenging shit. I've learned the most about myself by diving into things that really scared me. It reveals these characteristics about who you are and piece by piece, through your experiences, you build a foundation that's all YOU. It's a on going, fo' life journey. Which I might add is pretty cool. You will always have the opportunity to learn something new about who you are and what you choose to become.
It's easy to get sucked into what you think everyone wants you to be. Your gesture of figuring out YOU can be a loud statement or a small whisper. Either way, do it on your own terms. Stop trying to figure out who you are by standing still. Start walking, listening, trying and filtering shit that doesn’t fill whatever goodness you’re trying to create. Being yourself is showing up without the need to edit parts of who you are. You are creating this WHOLE you and that means leaning in to the ebbs and flows of this big beautiful, chaotic, purpose driven thing called life. It wants all of you. I want ALL of you.

Stop trying to be a hero and put on a coat that'll keep you warm!! Ok seriously y'all, old man Winter will be here and I just want my babes to be stylishly ready. After experiencing snowmageddon 2016-2017, ughhhhh, I'm leaving no awesome/practical Winter wear stones unturned. This green puffy goodness was a saaweet find at Old Navy. It's under $50 on sale ( yah, you heard me) fleece lined, comes in this yummy color and its CUTE! We can nix looking frumpy in our cozy wears and step out looking fly! Insert any Beyonce song right here and imagine your hair being blown slow motion style in the wind ;)
So a few tips to consider when shopping for that coat. Proportions matter. If you're petite, consider a cropped puffer or see if the style comes in petite so that it doesn't overwhelm your frame. If you're curvy, look for a flat quilt ( no bulky coat), nylon or wool style that has a simple and sleek silhouette. I'm currently loving this and this style. Let me know if you snag any of these styles! Stay warm my peeps!
When I told my family and friends that I was leaving NJ and moving to Boise Idaho to be with the man I love, most of them freaked out. Laura, you can't be serious? Do you really know this guy? I can't believe you're moving to Iowa ( yep, I got that one a lot ;) These phrases were repeated by a few well meaning friends and family members. I was also reminded on several occasion that I would be moving to a state where, well, there was very little black folks. That was 12 years ago. I've since married my mountain man ( 10 years and counting), developed a major love crush on Idaho, became a business owner and formed some of the most meaningful relationships that's helped shaped me as a person.
Y'all all of this scared me! Fear was showing up, putting it's dirty ass feet on my coffee table and getting comfy. UGH!!! I had to DECIDE if the want was bigger than the fear. The want has to be big and I don't mean "I want those ankle boots" big. I mean, I want to marry this man, own this company, move out of the country and start a new business because I LOVE this BIG! Love, passion, GOALS will push through fear but that shit has got to be real. Why? Because the moment it becomes hard or suck ( life gets that way sometimes) you'll want to quit and get back to comfort zone.
So I had to ask myself, how badly do I want it?! I wanted this so badly that I was willing to look beyond the what ifs and see what WE could be if I moved to Idaho. I wanted to see who I could become with this move. The process was hard, easy and everything in between. It took time for me to truly find my place and develop meaningful relationships. It's helped me to foster a mindset that I have to try and push through the fear because lessons need to be learned and that's how we feed growth. So I work it like a muscle. I know that fear will always be there to remind me that what I'm about to experience is an opportunity outside my comfort zone. So I take a breath, prepare myself also know as work and get comfy with being uncomfortable. Fear will always creep up when you dare to move beyond where you stand. Recognize it and stifle its powers with your BIG vision, die hard action and passion driven LOVE!
Let's get right into it my peeps. We know that temperature dip is heading our way. I'm really going to miss Summer but don't you fret there's so much goodness coming your way for Fall and Winter. A jacket that helps me transition the slightly lower temperature is a must! This little number from Madewell certainly does the trick. You will see me in it a lot :) It's light enough to rock a tee but roomy enough to layer a sweater if you need to up the cozy factor.
Side note: Thank you ALL for the awesome love from my last post! I appreciate each and every one of you! MUAH! See you soon my babes!
Growing up I wanted long, straight hair that gently played on my back when the breeze touched it. My mom refused to let me straighten my curly mane. I would sneak and have by friend Niqua press my hair with a hot comb. If you don't know what that is, it's a comb made of metal that you put on a gas burning stove to heat up. You allow it to cool a bit and then you proceed to burn the shit out of your hair just so that it can be straight. I know. F@$king crazy! I did that because the idea of leaving my hair as is was something I did not see around me. I saw women pressing, perming, blowout styling their hair to look other than what it was naturally meant to be. This is certainly not a bash on those who straighten their hair. I assure you, if i want to mix it up a bit I'll blow out my hair because I'm a grown woman and I can do what I want ;) Ok, I digress. When we press, straighten or do anything different to alter ourselves, I want it to be built on a road where we are defining our own beauty.
The thought that black, natural, curly, kinky, unprocessed, left to do what it does best, froed out hair was not reflected to me as beautiful. It's changing. We are seeing a diverse mix of women stepping forward and demanding to be reflected in the images blasted towards us. Why? Because WE EXIST to be seen and heard. So much is happening with how we as women see ourselves. WE are digging deeper towards the AS IS part of ourselves that others thought strange or not enough and allowing it to be seen, fully. It's a real conversation that has to be echoed in a time where filters and editing skews so much of we see as beautiful. What I see now in myself took years of adjusting, filtering and being around women who know how to love themselves. These REAL reflections are what our little girls will witness, giving then the opportunity to SEE that their beauty is right there, as they are, right now. Strange, complicated, knappy hair, unruly, smart, loud, bossy, quiet, driven, defiant, necessary, vulnerable...beautiful AS IS.
I love a classic black and white outfit. It goes together like the best of opposites. So when it comes to this effortless wear, you can't go wrong. Effortless doesn't have to mean boring or plain. This darling white eyelet top from JCrew adds a little texture to a simple style. Oh and I can't forget to mention these loafers. LOVEEE!!! The patent leather with the stud detail adds a whole lot of edge to this look. Style has the ability to reveal or express who you are in the best way. You can show up feeling confident, fabulous and YES, comfortable. Comfort is a common thread in how I style my clients because Mama knows that if you don't feel good in, you won't wear. These high waisted wide legged pants from The Gap ( on sale and a screaming deal) are like pajamas. These types of classic looks take the work work work work work ( I had to) out of getting dressed. As always, I've got your style back! MUAH!
Cruising along the Boise Greenbelt is one of my favorite parts about living in beautiful Boise, Idaho. We have a ease in our style and denim is a huge part of that effortless wear. I'm a denim lover! Deep, infatuated, serious relationship kind of love :) A great pair of denim hugs your curves in all the right places. It let's you strut your goodness without breaking your stride. It can effortlessly navigate between your ankle boots, those slay me heels and yes, your laid back sneaks! These beauts I'm rocking are the stunner ankle step fray high rise by Mother denim from Anthropologie. I'm always on the hunt for a new style that has a little extra something special that makes them stand out from the denim noise. The frayed step hem detail and the faded black had me at hello! The high waisted keeps everything tucked away neatly( YASS!) with a dose of old school chic. Loving on these beauts or any of the denim styles you see at Anthropologie use code ID20 for $20 off your next jean purchase! YES, I'm doing the happy denim dance with you.
When it comes to the process of getting dressed we all have the same intention. To feel great in what we wear. How do we get to that place of having styles in our closet that make us feel great? I'm not gonna bullshit you. It's a process and for some it's a simpler journey. For others, it can be laced with f-bomb dropped moments. "I'm not tall, skinny, blond, tanned enough etc." or "I wish my _____ was better." It's a familiar moment to most of us. There is no magic to owning our confidence. It's a path that's tugged on by misguided social standards that are reverberated by those with good and bad intentions. Inadvertently, these tales become sprinkled through our own self talk making us believe that we are not enough. What does clothing and the process of getting dressed has to do with confidence? For me it's an acknowledgment of my body and how I feel about it and IN IT. The styles we choose will either celebrate our body or shame it. They will either uplift our sense of belonging or make us feel invisible. I want us to choose to see those parts that we love and then work to introduce styles that give those areas a whole lot of love! It doesn't happen overnight. However, it can start with saying more kind words to ourselves and each other. Our culminated steps and the ability to recognize the me in you will lend to dismantle standards that are far from standard.
I've got your back.
Yes, the temperature is rising and that means SUMMER is here in all it's glory! This Jamaican gal LOVES the heat! It hugs me and makes me feel like skipping and then twirling. However, Mama knows a girl can lose her cool when it's hotter than a mofo and all you want to do is strut your birthday suit. So I'm here to help guide you through rocking some cuteness whilst keeping your cool :)
Keep it Simple
The hotter it gets the less I want to wear. So it's a balance between wearing as little as possible while maintaining our classy lady situation ;) That means keeping it simple. T-shirt and shorts are my go to for easy Summer styling. This doesn't mean that you can't add a little fun flavor. I'm rocking these darling green high waisted shorts that brings a dose of play with the ruffled details. Paired with a great staple that what we all have in our closet, a great white tee.
Your clothes can be a form of natural air condition....awwwww. This can be accomplished with fabrics: linen, cotton and fit: think airy. So I stick with styles that are not restricting any part of my body ( that's not cute anyways, right). All your nooks and crannies can breath ;) Light weight dresses, cotton shorts and drapey tanks are just a few of my breezy wears.
Rejoice because it's Summer!
It goes by so fast so let's savior it as much as we can. I know it can get to the point where you want to rip off your clothes Superman style and dive into any cold liquid. However, I hold on to the patio evenings, pool parties, outdoor music and the best, just hanging with the people you love, a cold beverage in hand and late night chats. It's da best!
Keep it simple, breezy and savior the little moments. Muah!
This is my new Summer "go to" dress. With the warmer days heading our way, so is the list of events that we will attend. Finding a great versatile dress that I can rock at a Summer wedding or a dinner party makes the "what to wear" process so much easier. It's breezy, comfortable and can be dressed up or down depending on the shoe pairing.
I found this beauty at Bohme at the Boise Towne Square Mall and it was a screaming great price. Under $50!! The lace detail gives this dress a luxe look and the contrast collar adds a polish detail. I've already worn this dress a few times and have gotten lots of love when wearing it. You can find similar styles at Francesca's as well. Have a great Summer peeps and I'll be dishing out more Summer style goodness that's pocketbook friendly :)
It's always a pleasure to stay at the cool and inviting The Society Hotel.
When I think of the moments I regret it usually involves 2 types of situation: not standing up for myself and not standing up for others. Those moments where I stood in silence held weight on my conscience. This weight was something I carried without even knowing it until I became older, made friends, lost friends and uncovered bits of myself along the way. I realized the immense power that came with choosing. The act of kindness is a choice. Kindness isn't a unicorn and it's certainly not naivety. We don't get to sit by and just be. Even the act of not choosing is a decision. Kindness can be uncovered the same way we fuel love. With doses of intention, understanding, compassion and being a genuine soundboard of honesty. I've witnessed how this real gesture of caring/ kindness can transform all parties involved in this exchange. It's not all rainbows and sunshine but that effort and you are worthy.
I at times struggle to understand why we feel the need to break each other down. For me it comes down to making a choice to listen, digest and then speak because my words and actions matter. We can choose to not be apart of the rhetoric of hate. It stifles hope, perspective and just the basic human understanding of listening to our different stories. The mean girl stance lingers because there's a desperate need to belong. I'm apart of this and it makes me feel special so YOU CAN'T SIT HERE attitude. Exclusion creates this centrifuge of minds where all of a sudden we look around at our table and everyone's the same. I've learned the most from those that differ from me. I can see the comfort of having people in our world that think and act as we do but I can also see the silence that comes with it.
What has allowed me to register some of these feelings is knowing what exclusion feels like. We've all been there and *know* this feeling. Snotty, catty, rude, mean and dismissive. All words I want my stepdaughter Maddie to know and actively make a choice to step up to the plate and be otherwise. The "real talk" of empowering women doesn't have to be a loud speaker statement in every situation. It can look like a real smile and it can sound like "Hi, I'm Laura. What's your name?"
I hear you. You love simple, crisp lines that make you feel sharp, polished and effortlessly pulled together. Your heart does a pitter patter at the sight of color palettes that linger in the ivory, gray, white and black arena. I'm listening and I hear you. I certainly have simplified my style over the years in an effort to have less stuff and more of ONLY what I love. So here's a few tips for my peeps who want a more modern simple look but still want to display a healthy dose of their sass/ swag, personality ( you know what I mean).
Locate classics with attitude
I've said it before and I'll say it again: date the trends and marry the classics. Classics are those pieces that can withstand the test of time unlike that heavy bang phase I thought was so great in 94. We all learn ;) In finding these pieces, I look for those that have a little extra edge to them. For example an ivory silk blouse with a leather trim, high waisted pencil skirt in blush pink (YASS) or a minimalist trench with a blue pinstripe lining that brings a little happy to a rainy day.
Choose a WOW piece
Your outfit should have one piece of clothing that does the talking and the rest should just chill out like a good wingwoman. The talking is this classic stripe button shirt that brings a whimsical dose of play with the embroidered detail in bright green. Come on! It makes me so happy! Paired with simple distressed jeans or you could pair it with dark wash denim. This allows your other more simple pieces to join the party and not look so womp womp womp ;)
Texture and dare I say, color is your friend
Adding elements of texture and color can allow your simply styles to stand on their own. It can be a featherweight cashmere sweater in powder blue or white button down with swiss dots. This allows your outfit to have dimension while still giving you the feel good vibes of a simplified style.
Style should always be about feeling great in what you wear and that means it needs to reflect who YOU are! Sending you a major hug and good vibes whilst keeping it simply ;)
I know immediately what sparks a bit of joy inside me. It usually includes a well made high waisted trouser and of course a well designed space. I had the blessed opportunity to be along side Kirsten Grove and a few other uber cool ladies as part of the modsquad for Modernism Week in Palm Springs. The scoop is that it's cool, fun and introduced me to the variety of mid-century design. Your senses will thank you as you immerse yourself in the celebration of midcentury modern design, architecture, art, fashion and culture. Scroll below to get your dose of Palm Springs and I suggest grabbing a few of your good peeps and making a visit.

The Christopher Kennedy Compound is the spectacular home of Kelly Golightly and Fred Moser. Each room was custom designed by a designer and it was magical!!
The Door Tour made courtesy of some pretty sweet cruisers from Bike Palm Springs and Palm Spring Style. I mean come on!!!! This is the speed to truly take in not just the doors but all the beautiful nooks and crannies of these neighborhoods.

Embroidered pieces have a way of either slaying me with happy twirling thoughts or making me want to sit in a rocking chair and knit. Since I'm a twirler, I look for styles that have a playful simplicity. This little number is from Zara. Simple, easy to wear and affordable. I bought it because I loved it. If there's a trend that you want to try, I say slip on a style that takes on the trend in a "I can wear it effortlessly kind of way." If you find yourself needing a "how to guide" on rocking it, just skip it babes! Ain't nobody got time for that :)
Trends are a great way to incorporate a little extra fun and play into your wardrobe. It shouldn't be stressful after-all it's just clothes. As I've said before, date the trends and marry the classics. Have a great Thursday my peeps and I'll see you next week. MUAH!
When I shop for my clients, it's a combination of finding styles that provide a refinement to their wardrobe and also incorporating extra special little pieces along the way. Whether it's a fur trimmed classic trench or in my case some gold silk pants. It all adds an element of uniqueness that makes fashion what it should be. Your own expression. Whatever your "gold pants" heart desires, the point is to step out a bit and play. Why? Ummm because it's just clothes. You're beautiful, deserving and why the hell not! So if you desire that lace dress in lavender, the tuxedo inspired suit that vibes modern Katherine Hepburn or a simple silk blouse in a color that makes you feel extra saucy, I say #PURCHASE :) Don't overthink it. Mama will lay down some simple tips. It should fit you well ( lay well, hug you in the right places, no tugging/ pulling), make you feel great and when you look in the mirror, you should want to date yourself! Right!! Get out there and if you need some love on you guidance, you know where to find me. MUAH!

This journey started with an idea. The opportunity to share that idea came along in the most spectacular way. It was fueled by the photography genius of Ben and Joella Photography, the incredible floral designs of Flowers At Will and the flawless makeup by the amazing Blush by Jamie Rose. I wanted the fabrics to sync with the landscape and the flowers to have their own volume. I'm humbled and honored to have been apart of this experience and blessed to see our work published in the beautiful and purpose driven Belong Magazine. I'm learning that our strengths are built from the inside out. It's fed by those we let in. It's then shared because we are all worthy, capable and loved.
Joella's written words were published in Belong and spoke to the heart of what we wanted to create and why. I've shared those words below along with some of the photos from the photoshoot. Thank you for all of your love, support and encouragement.
"We are all artists, entrepreneurs, and creators. Our lives have taken us around the country and around the world but now we all call Boise our home. And rather than dream of moving away, we’re are all devoted to building a community of artists right here. So often our work is client based — we all create within the parameters set by those we are serving. Which is what made this project so refreshing and uplifting. It was a collaborative vision designed to bring out the inner creative in all of us. We wanted people to look at these photos and feel transported. To a place that is a little more whimsical and a little more unexpected than daily life. The flower stems were all individually encased in a water capsule to keep them fresh in the desert heat. The flowers were then attached to a corseted top with a zip closure in the back. And it was this idea — a piece of clothing made entirely from florals — that was the foundation of the entire concept. The perforated orchid gloves and lilac clutch were the singular vision of Will Heatter, founder of Flowers at Will. The soft, draping fabrics and blush palette were curated by stylist Laura Tully. And the location, with the rolling sand hills and minimal landscape, were chosen by Ben and Joella to provide scale to the images without competing with the fantastical floral elements. From a photography perspective, the images needed to be the perfect blend of simple and artistic. Medium format film allowed the strong colors of the florals to stand out without washing out the pale sand. And by shooting two images on the same piece of film, there are the double exposure images that feature a silhouette filled with the flowers. Oftentimes, the art of creating needs far less than we think. Instead of focusing on all the things that need to be in place first — I need to live somewhere else, I need more connections, I need more time — focus on just starting. Don’t wait for everything to fall into place, just commit and start small. Work with people who’s vision makes you come alive. Follow your passion. The things you find easy aren’t easy to everyone. They’re your calling. And you just might surprise yourself. And hopefully you surprise a few other people along the way too." Joella Howard
It started out as something really innocent. You fall in love, get married, make babies.
What I thought was figuring out why I could not have a baby, became I am not enough to have a baby. I don't have the space in me to do what I'm genetically geared to provide. Don't worry, this is *not* a sad story. It is one of defying what we are made to be defined by and along the way, generating our own definition. Along the way, pain, resentment and anger pushed themselves in. I welcomed them. They were necessary to give voice to the real pain I felt.
Pain, lessens and can awaken areas that were patiently waiting to bloom. Resentment loosened it's grip when I decided to make room for love that chose me. Love that came into my life, innocently and unapologetically. My stepdaughter Maddie has no idea how much she has saved me. Saved me from the anger that wrapped around my heart when I lingered on what I didn't have, couldn't have. The need to find the composed answers for innocent questions asked of why *we* didn't have a little one of our own. The answers use to fill me like sandbags stacked along an embankment about to breach. Sturdy but just one more strong storm and all could break free. I would loose control.
I share this with you because I believe in the infectious quality of our stories and how they have the ability to reveal other truths, unhinge perspectives we thought were anchored down and sometimes they connect deeply with our own. Those truths that we have yet to uncover about ourselves. Reading, sharing and listening guided me when life and all it's unbalanced moments made me uncomfortable and uncertain. I speak to you not as an act of bravery but because speaking one's truth should be an act of caring. It's not just about me and my story, it's about you, your story, your truth. We get to uncover, settle in or start anew by these moments.
How did I move beyond these moments? It took time and allowing myself to open my eyes to the blessings that came to me, without me ever asking. Fueling myself with a husband that wanted to love me and struggled to know how to make things right. Realizing that we saw things very differently when it came to adoption and figuring out how to let love heal that gap. He soon realized that there was no right way to make me reach a place of understanding. It was my journey to climb and mine alone. Hard conversations led to big emotions that were at times difficult to digest. However, it eventually opened up the real truths about what "our" life would look like as a family and what I in turn wanted for myself. I was fueled by my stepdaughter Maddie. Her unconditional love and the incredibly blissful way she filled the empty room that was in heart. I was fueled by the love and compassion of my friends who let me cry and walked along with me when I started to move forward. I was fueled by my faith. Which lifted the weight I allowed myself to carry and filled me with gratitude.
Nothing is set in stone. It's the beauty of life, of living. I'm challenged to realize how much we impact each other and the space we occupy when doing so. I'm learning to choose my space a bit more carefully, to listen more intently and most important, to be truthful as I meander this path.
As you meander through your path, know that your moments of pain will bring you to a space where some of your "whys" will be answered and some won't. That the now of what you feel, will make way to the after of better days. That you will gift yourself the freedom to sit in the grief but never linger. After, you will be stronger, more forgiving, deliberate, grateful, loved and relentlessly you.

I'm ready to bloom. We are all waiting for that temperature to tip toe its way into the magical numbers that allows us to sound the alarms that it is SPRING! What it does for the flowers, the snow capped mountains, the rivers and streams, it also does for us. It lifts the burden of the cold and fills us with the vigor of warmth and sun filled rays. It makes us believe in the magic of coming alive, the chance to restore what has been settled, awaken or maybe even start anew. This Winter's hard gaze certainly tested our will to the point where we felt that we might break. Yet, here we are, stronger and certainly more equipped with some "how the hell to drive in snow/ice" skills. Am I right?!! ;)
Spring gives way to not just natures bounty but to ours as well. I see the chance to reset not just my wardrobe ( yes please) but to recharge my mind towards the possibilities of what's to come. It's the chance to step out of the comfort zone and explore "I think I can" to "I can try." Nature's getting ready my dear friends, so are you and I.
This top (which is actually a swimsuit cover up) brings out a strong dose of happy for me. Best of all, it was gifted by one of my favorite humans. She truly makes this world a better place because she is in it! This Spring, I'm swooning on the little details that make a simple style come alive. The vibrant hot pink tassels adds so much play, I'm not sure how I can wear this and not skip ;) So this Spring, Mama will be bringing you styles filled with play, ease and the challenge of embracing ourselves just as we are. Let's bloom!!
