We didn't give Holden any sugar for a long time (we would say that candy was yucky and he just agreed with us), but now that he's a little older we allow him to indulge in something sweet every once and a while.  Mr. B has a slight addiction to chocolate (I literally can not keep ice cream in the house for longer than a day) and the first time Holden ever had chocolate ice cream, we knew by his reaction that the chocolate-loving gene had been passed down to him :)

I don't have the biggest sweet tooth, but there are times that I just can't help treating us to an afternoon at an ice cream parlor or cupcake shop, especially after the little man fell and cracked his forehead open (you can still see the glue on his forehead in these pictures). San Francisco is littered with quaint cupcake shops and bakeries, but I was hard pressed to find any near our new house until Holden and I stumbled upon Heavenly Cupcake in downtown San Diego.  With rows and rows of decadent cupcakes in every flavor imaginable, this was the perfect spot to introduce Holden to the world of cupcakes, and if you can't tell by the pictures, he was pretty happy with the experience.  I bought one to share between the two of us and somehow I barely got a taste.

In 2011, I became a mother to a beautiful baby boy and my style was forever changed.

After a few sleep deprived weeks (or perhaps a month or two) of living in loungewear, my skirts and dresses hanging untouched in the corner of my closet, my husband and I decided it was time for a date night and it was surprising how wonderful it felt to dress up.

Since the majority of my days were spent at playdates and playgrounds, I started dressing up for the simplest of errands or everyday occurrences just because it made me feel good.

After speaking with my good friend Marissa and finding out that she was also not saving her favorite dresses for only special occasions, we decided to start a style movement and social media campaign called Elegant Errands to inspire other women to take an everyday, ordinary opportunity and dress it up. Today we are teaming up with Joie to show you don't always need an excuse to dress up.

Marissa and I believe that there is no reason not to opt for a favorite dress, regardless of what you have planned for the day. Whether it is wearing a tulle skirt to the grocery store or a fancy dress to the post office, we believe that the simple act of throwing on an elegant piece of clothing can completely change the way you feel about herself which is why we think you don't need a "reason" to dress up (but if you need an excuse, let Elegant Errands be yours.)

We hope that you will join us on our #eleganterrands movement by switching out your everyday wear for something a little dressier, something that you feel good in, and share using the hashtag #eleganterrands. We can't wait to see all of your #eleganterrands!
