Is it just me, or is Easter like the sneakiest holiday ever? For Christmas, we start planning two and half years in advance. For Easter, it’s like, “Hey, I’m back! Hope you remembered to buy all the random things for your kid’s Easter party at school” (which the answer is of course, “No” πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ). However the one thing that seems to never slip my mind (must be the stylist in me), is shopping for the perfect Easter outfit for the kids and myself. Luckily, Cha Cha was easy cuz all her clothes are hand-me-downs, and really freaken cute ones too πŸ˜‰ Garrett’s also pretty easy since he takes matters into his own hands, and already picked out the perfect spring plaid button-down that he’s been holding onto for over a month saying “I’m saving that one for Easter, mom.” πŸ˜‚ So that just leaves me, and as luck would have it – I was able to partner with PinkBlush to style what I’m calling “Day to Night Easter Spring Outfits for Moms.” 😊

CH2T Styling: ABC13 x Wardrobe Transition Pieces

Last month I had the pleasure of filming three segments for ABC13 with my friend/reporter Rebecca Spera – “Wardrobe Transition Pieces,” “Closet Cleanout,” and “Five Minute Makeup Hacks.” If you’re a local Houstonian, then you might have caught the first segment this past Wed afternoon.

Mom Jean Confessions: Age of Innocence

I would have posted this sooner, but it’s taken me some time to gather my thoughts after the tragedy in Vegas. When I was single (or just prior to starting a family), things like this would happen in the world, your mind tells you how horrible it is, and you react like any compassionate person would. But it’s like the minute you have a baby, you no longer think with your head. In fact, it’s as if all of the world’s emotions get sucked into your heart and BAM – you’re a mom. You no longer just fear for yourself, you fear for these innocent little people who you created, and your mission in life is to protect that innocence for all it’s worth. But the duality is that you still have that logical pre-mommy side of your brain telling you that it’s impossible. That they will get to an age where they will become aware of the bad things that happen around them, outside of this parental bubble you’ve created, and you come to grips that this “age of innocence” is over. You accept your job as parents to raise them to be good people who fight for what’s right. Period.
