MommyStyle: Black and Red

Last weekend was one of my favorite events of the year, the Junior League of Kansas City Take 5 Party!

This year I was feeling a little sassy so I decided to be bold and wear one of my all time favorite statement dresses. The day of the event, I texted a picture to my friend Amie and she texted me back that apparently there was an email that went out saying we were supposed to wear black and red in honor of our JLKC 100th year anniversary. I was like, “whah??” Could you IMAGINE??

Anyway, luckily black and red is pretty doable so I made a last minute switch and promised to give my next-born child to Amie as a thank you for saving me from that humiliation.

 My FAVORITE place to get makeup tips and inspiration is a blog called I use almost all of her product recommendations. See my favorite post from her HERE.
