Hello- Mommys. Alexandra Gray Cardigan

I love fall weather and I really love dressing for fall too. I am always looking for clothes that I can wear that's comfortable and easy to style. I was so happy to get in contact with the online store Hello-Mommys and be gifted an item to choose from the online store. It was a tough decision because everything on the website was very nice and super affordable. 



What does comfort feel and look for me? I am a very basic t-shirt, high waist jeans and vans mom. My life involves a lot of running errands, taking pictures around Dallas for my blog and of course my favorite running around with my kids. My comfort is a priority to me and I appreciate brands that make comfortable clothes. It's very important to me feel cozy. If you are a mom like me who is on the go then you can relate. Don't you just hate the feeling of being restricted and clothes not looking right on. 



I hope that you can be inspired by my simple look and how I styled it with the simple Alexandra Gray cardigan from Hello-Mommys. The fabric feels super soft and just the perfect layering piece with any outfit, I felt as if I could wear it with jeans and a t-shirt, and even with a dress. Keeping an outfit easy and simple is smart for a lot of reasons. This cardigan is a great addition to my minimal look that I want to keep up, less is more and I can rotate clothes by just changing the key pieces. 




In_DFWFamily takes over D.C.

 

I am always excited about taking trips to new places with my family. To explore new places with my children and experiencing the excitement with them. But this weekend was a different weekend for me in a different city. I knew I wanted to do something for my birthday and at first I was planning a trip to go see J.LO with my closest friends. But when that trip fell through I still wanted to go somewhere for my birthday. Hence, the idea of a mommy solo trip to visit a friend in D.C.



Washington D.C. is one of my favorite places to go. We've been there a few times as a family and I really enjoy all of the American history that the city offers. There still are so many National Monuments that I would like to see and to visit with more time of course. I knew where I wanted to go and what I wanted to do, and because I was prepared it made the trip that more chilled and easy.





First we had brunch at the place called Bus Boys and Poet. This place was recommend by my BFF. With several locations in the city we knew we wanted to find a place with easy parking. The parking in D.C. is terrible, which is why the locals take the subways all around. As a tourist in D.C. I think the subway is so much fun.



The subway system is pretty easy to navigate, but you really have to have a knowledge of where you want to go and which exit you need to take. My friend mapped out each location for us and made the trip less stressful and easy. I had a great time being on the train and of course, I enjoyed people watching along the way.






Here is the list of some great places that we visited during my trip to D.C. If you're ever in D.C, I hope this list helps you make your adventure in D.C. more enjoyable.
