Spring Style with Mi Golondrina

Well dolls, I’m excited to share the brilliant news that we’re expecting again! This year is shaping up to be such a blessing and thrilling time already! With baby number 2, I can’t describe just how different my experience is this time around. As a mom already, it’s so special to share this time with little Elle. In addition, I’m balancing exhaustion with the desire to stay extremely present and make every moment as fun as can be for Elle. Already, we’ve made a trip to Florida and a first visit to Disney! This pregnancy, my style has also changed! I’m looking for easy, breezy neutrals that I can wear now all the way to my due date and beyond. Enter Mi Golondrina – the perfect staples that are always polished, and can be dressed up, but aren’t fussy. I love the unique and hand-crafted details that are woven into every piece. So far, I haven’t taken off The Josefina, a stunning white dress with feminine ruffles and hand-pulled lace. I wear it during the day with flats, but also dress it up for dinner with some gold earrings and strappy sandals. I’m also loving The Sofia, an elegant but relaxed, black dress with detailed embroidery. 

It’s these details and the elevation of the talented artisans behind the designs that really set this brand apart. As I’m having another little girl, I love to support brands that uplift women. Mi Golondrina is one of my fav brands that not only has gorgeous designs but a brand purpose that resonates with me. For more details on the brand and to see my favorite dresses, visit

Thank you to Mi Golondrina for partnering on this post.


A Trench For All Seasons

A trench coat is one of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe. No matter the season, it’s easy to layer over a sweater on a rainy Fall day, or even on a chilly Spring morning. I love a light top coat, so I have quite the collection of trenches in a variety of colors, weights, fabrics, and price points! To show just how versatile a trench could be, I layered three of my favorites over a simple shirtdress. What do you think, dolls? Are you a fan of the trench?

The IT Coat

It seems like every season there are a couple of pieces that every fashion girl or blogger has. In my opinion, the “it” item this Fall/Winter was a coat from TOTÊME. The shearling teddy coat with metallic toggles and the contrast stitching scarf coat were everywhere! And I totally understand! The chic pieces are cozy, neutral and elevate any outfit. 

I wore these coats with light jeans, oatmeal trousers, and even cropped black pants (as shown). I love the boxy silhouette and the unexpected details such as the whip stitch and the silver claps. Even though a bit pricey, these are pieces you’ll have year after year!
