Fashion on wheels

Last night I hosted yet another fun Ladies Night Out!  Our night was full of drinking vino, eating yummy finger foods & shopping the latest trends thanks to the Mack & Mario fashion truck.  Mack & Mario is a store on wheels, think food truck but for all things fabulous.

This concept of free-range fashion is a game changer!  The owner Lori made our event a huge hit with her outgoing personality, artisan jewelry and on-trend apparel.

My girlfriends & I had a blast shopping inside the truck!  There was no pressure from pushy sales associates, just friendly advice from the owner on how to coordinate pieces.  The apparel was somewhat limited with only one or two sizes available in each style, making them unique & one of a kind.

Some of  my favorite pieces included a white tulle skirt a la Carrie Bradshaw, an off-the-shoulder tunic with lace/fringe detailing and lightweight brass bracelets with individual state charms.

Joining a Mom’s Group saved my sanity

Being a Stay at Home Mom can get lonely fast.  Although, I was constantly with my son I missed having adult conversations and found myself slowly losing my mind.  My friends nearby didn’t have kids and my husband had a hard time relating to my SAHM struggles.  I finally did some research and came across an app called MeetUp.  Through MeetUp I was able to find several mom’s groups in my area & ended up joining MOMS Club, an international group with chapters in all 50 states.  At first, I was a little embarrassed to admit I joined a group I had found online, but now I embrace it!  Not only am I able to surround myself with women who are going through the same things as I am, but my son & I get the chance to embark on some pretty amazing adventures such as visiting a local dairy farm, hiking through a nature reserve, riding a tractor through a pumpkin patch and going to the Aviary!  Not to mention, we have monthly Mom’s Night Out events that give me a chance to unwind with a glass of wine.

I encourage every SAHM to connect with other mom’s in their community!  You’ll have the opportunity to build lasting relationships and it will save you from bombarding your husband with poop stories when he walks through the door.
