I am finding a floppy hat is one of the MUST haves this Fall Season. 

You can pretty much add them to just about any outfit, they are the perfect accessory to complete your look. 

A floppy hat always makes me feel a little more chic. Like I should be hopping on a plane to Europe or heading to a cafe to meet my girlfriends for a little gossip sesh and then off to explore a bunch of trendy shops. SATC style!

OH how I wish that was where my floppy hat was taking me.

Here are a few looks that I am loving

I am really feeling this hat for Fall. I am pretty sure it will be making an appearance a couple times a week... even if it is just for hanging out at home and walking the dogs. A girl has the right to feel stylish everyday,  right?

This is what Leading Moms is all about.

Last month I had the privilege and honor of being a blog ambassador for Leading Moms: Inspirational talks by Extraordinary Moms. And let me tell you they were extraordinary!





These women showed me that you can pretty much do anything as long as you try and put your best effort forward. You can change the world.

Saying my eyes were opened by this years Leading Moms would be an UNDER statement I was BLOWN away with what these extraordinary moms were achieving and doing with their lives.


Andrea Thomas Hill is one of those extraordinary women who decided that she needed to make a change in our society by helping single moms with resources to help raise their children- with the foundation Cause we Care. Andrea Thomas Hill is someone I am going to strive to be like! She sees something that is not right in society, and does her utmost to right the situation.  So many of us may talk about others "sad situations" but very few of us "DO" anything. I want to help make a difference and I thank Andrea for making me aware that we all have it in us to make a difference.

Keri Anne Livingstone Dared us to suck.. to ask for what we want, to try the one thing we really wanted to try, even if we were going to be bad at it.



One of the women I was surprised to find I wanted to hear more from was Marnie Goldenberg: The Sexplainer. I have to be honest with you, I really had no desire to hear what she had to say. I didn't want to hear about teaching pre-schoolers about sex, but once she started talking... It was about teaching our children about their body parts, and to have a positive open discussion about their bodies.  I found I wanted to hear more from her. Everything she had to say made complete sense to me.

Another big lesson was from Tamara Taggart. Tamara reminded us that we need to be an advocate for ourselves because no one else will. Most of the time we as moms, are busy taking care of and making sure our loved ones are looked after. Sadly we forget to take care of ourselves, and find ourselves run-down and overwhelmed. We need to take time for ourselves and make sure we are healthy and happy  as well.


Leading Moms filled me up. I feel like I can move mountains and look fabulous while doing it! I am excited to take on the day and bring myself closer to living my dreams. I can make a difference... and so can you.

And as Comfort Ero reminded us in her opening remarks, share stories with your children,  empower them ,and be creative with them.

XOXO
