Hello lovely ladies! I hope you are all off to a fabulous new year! You might have noticed the Fashion Informant was on a little vacation. I wanted to spend as much quality time with the family as I could while they were on break. My aunt said something a few years ago that always rings in my head as I’m trying to hustle through my day in survival mode. “They are only little for such a short time, enjoy this time because you’ll never get it back.” Deep? yeah…but so true! Last year I set attainable goals and feel a sense of accomplishment that I actually followed through with them for once. The two top goals being spending more time volunteering for the kids school activities (because right now they really like it when I’m there….a few years from now…they probably won’t). The other was to build business relationships and slowly but surly that has also been a success.
This year I really want to focus on the simple joys with my kids because those are the things they will truly remember when they get older. Like mom and dad camping out in their rooms while my daughter paints my nails and my son has a light saber battle with his dad. If I think back to my own childhood those are the kind of memories that I cherish the most.
My kids came with us for the photo shoot which will explain the random bubble picture. It’s amazing the joy you can get just watching your little ones run around blowing bubbles in a park. That is my number one goal this year, to really slow down and enjoy the small stuff.
Let’s talk fashion! This strapless floral dress was a gift from my mother-in-law and it’s a brand called Tychee. I realize some of you may be buried in snow right now but this is a great dress for Spring…don’t worry it’s coming. If it makes you feel any better we’ve had record lows here in Hawaii as well. In fact I was chilly while we we’re taking these pictures. I know, wahh…poor me. Well now comes the time to linkup and share your fabulous style. I can’t wait to see what everyone has been wearing.
Here is what I wore…
- Dress- Tychee Floral Maxi
- Shoes- Steve Madden Espadrilles
- Necklace – Avon
- Bracelet- Stella and Dot (retired)
