Not All Heroes Wear Capes

....but sometimes I do.

Lately, it has been so hard for me to put up outfit posts for various reasons. I have been busy, in fact busy doesn't even begin to describe it. I haven't gone shopping for myself in 3 months, whatever I've bought online has been worn and washed and put away; I just haven't been the usual queen I am. To be completely honest, I have been working non stop, so my free time automatically goes to baby June. There are so many things in life I want to do but one of those is not to miss a moment with my baby, blog posts can be shot any time but my baby will only take her first steps once. And I'm here writing this here because this is my space and I want to be as transparent as I can be. I never try to be anything I'm not and lately I felt that is what was happening with the blog. It's so easy to get caught up in what's popular or what will get views but I've never been into that. I always share looks that I genuinely love and sometimes (but very rarely) I get the awesome opportunity to partner up with a brand and showcase my style. BUT, I would also be lying if I said I haven't been living in sweats and comfy tees for the past few weeks...(okay thats a lie, because I've really been living in really comfy dresses but you get the point).

I can't exactly remember when I shot this outfit but I even went to Sephora to get dolled up and at first I was obsessed with how the girl did my make up and then I went to shoot and have lunch and my eyeliner completely melted so there went that excitement. But I wanted to share this look because now it makes sense to post it.

We've all heard the phrase

"Not all heroes wear capes"

and I'd like to think I can consider myself my family's hero, one of the many we are lucky to have. I feel proud of myself for being the mom and I am and still working really hard in my career, I feel proud of being the friend I am to the people who know me and I feel proud to love and be loved by those who surround me. Today's post might be a little more sentimental than usual but I hope that people would enjoy these more!
