{me time} sparkle earrings!

A few months after Piper was born, Hubs and I took all 3 girls over to Fashion Island (a local outdoor mall for those not in OC).  I remember it was a Friday, and I just wanted out.of.the.house. The easiest place to go let the girls run around was the Koi fish pound and we could inhale dinner from the food court.  It doesn’t sound glamorous, but when you’ve changed a million diapers in a week, have not showered that day and just want a change of scenery, it sounds perfect.

I threw my hair back in a bun, grabbed a puffer vest, touched on a little lipgloss, and for some reason, grabbed a pair of sparkly fun earrings.  While the kids played around the fish pond, and I stood nearby feeding Piper a bottle, I noticed a few ladies glancing our way.  Finally, 2 of them walked over and asked how old all our girls were….and as most do, dropped their jaws and asked how we had it all together (which we of course laughed at!).

But the clincher was this, one of the ladies said, “And you even have cute earrings on! How do you do it all?!”

I will never forget that moment!  I FAR from had my act together that night, but to this day, when I wear the earrings I had on that night, I have a new found confidence in what I can do.

A silly little story I know, but I had to share in case there were any other moms out there needing a little pick me up. A new pair of sparkly earrings can sometimes do just the trick!  I think these Stella & Dot Soiree Earrings might just be my next pair! Go with everything, little bit of sparkle, not to low for the kids to grab…

Of course while I was searching Stella & Dot, I saw these cute girl pieces that I’m pretty sure little Hay might fall in love with in her current Pinkalicious love affair! The Allie Pearl & Ribbon Necklace and the Kristin Pearl Bracelet. We don’t own, but we just may soon….

Have a great day everyone, and grab yourself a little sparkle!  All moms deserve to feel pretty!

  1. I love you blog and when I saw the Soirre earrings this morning I was thrilled. I sell sell Stella and Dot and you are right, a little jewelry can make you feel put together and can dress up your outfit. Thanks for mentioning Stella and Dot.

  2. This post made me smile because I can relate! I just had my third, although not quite as close as your littles, and some days I just don’t feel like I have it all together. I have a friend who sells Stella and Dot (it looks like you know Alison too!) and she asked me to host a party…it happened to coincide with my birthday so we made it a Baubles and Bubbles party. I got some beautiful new Stella and Dot pieces and am so excited for them to come in the mail soon. It just made me feel a little better about “me” these days, especially because I’m either covered in spit-up or cleaning up after potty training.

  3. I also sell Stella & Dot, and it was such a treat to see the shout out this morning!! My sales pitch this year for valentines day was Treat your self! No need to wait for others to give you the shiny, fun goodness you want! Love it.
