Brown Hair, Don't Care

This is me as a brunette. I seriously don't recognize myself in these photos. I've been coloring my hair blonde for so long that I had no idea the color of my actual hair. After leaving my corporate job, we knew we would need to cut our spending significantly and my first contribution to the 'cut' was giving up my platinum sessions with my stylist. 

I really thought it was going to be much harder to give up the blonde than it has been. I am kind of loving the darker color for Autumn and am certainly happy to not be dropping the cash on my hair. We will see how long this lasts but for now, I am a brunette. 

These photos (and the photos in the previous post) were taken by Tell Chronicles at their amazing Memory Shack - a super cool natural light studio. If you live in the Washington DC Metro Area and are interested in trying out the Memory Shack, hit me up at!

Mama Style: House Clothes

Two and a half months have passed since I said bye to my corporate career and it hasn't taken me long to come to the realization that I may never wear my beautiful professional attire ever again. Honestly, getting out of what I call 'house clothes' most days is a challenge.

Since I am required to leave my home, I've upgraded my house clothes game so my flannel PJ bottoms don't get past the front door. I am on a strict shopping budget which is why I am loving Old Navy right now. Their lounge wear has really impressed me and the prices can't be beat. Some of my favorites include... 

While we are talking about Old Navy let me also tell you about my new best friend - their high-rise crops and leggings. There is nothing worse than the waistband of your leggings digging into your stomach - am I right, Mamas? These workout pants offer the perfect amount of support and are under $30 because let's be honest, I am not willing to pay more than that for workout clothes!
