Happy Halloween! I can't believe November is tomorrow! OMG! This year has gone by at epic speeds. A few weeks ago Mama Fashion Files and I announced that we would no longer host the link-up portion of Mamanista Friday. After a several emails
and threats from readers, we have decided to bring it back! Keep on reading for info on how to link-up and the look for next Friday's link-up. This week, Mama Fashion Files and I are wearing ponchos.

If you were waiting for it or not, fall is in full swing. Recently, I've been participating in a heated fashion debate at work. Because Atlanta is still pretty warm, high 60's, the question is do you dress for the weather or the season? Being the fashion girl that I am and I love fall fashion, I always say dress season appropriate. I'm not saying if it hits 70 degrees you have to wear a sweater or wool coat but it's time to put up those summer dresses, booty shorts and linen pants away. It pains me to see someone wearing Easter colors in the fall if it isn't a sweater or a coat. There are several ways you can dress for the weather and still be season appropriate. I found the perfect fall floral peasant top for the season.

Celebrating its 30th Anniversary in 2014, Cirque du Soleil brings a new show to Atlanta! Amaluna invites the audience to a mysterious island governed by goddesses and guided by the cycles of the moon. Amaluna's Tony Award-winning Show Director, Diane Paulus, drew from a series of classical influences when creating the concept of the show; including tales from Greek and Norse mythology, Mozart's The Magic Flute, and Shakespeare's The Tempest. Now playing under the famed blue-and-yellow Big Top at Atlantic Station…with great seats as low as $35!

Peyton and I attended our second Kids Fashion Week presented by Petite Parade this past weekend. Peyton is a year older and boy did she enjoy it. Peyton hammed it up for the paparazzi, made new friends and then told me she wanted to be in the shows when she turns five. We'll add that to our vision board. One designer I was excited to see was Alivia Simone. The designers play on patterns and textures along with detailed design caught my attention earlier this year. Here are some of my favorite looks that hit the runway from her Spring/Summer 2015 collection.

When you look good, you feel good. It's important for us mommies to schedule some me time. I have to admit that I'm the worse at scheduling beauty treatments for myself but they are a must. I may have a mini Sephora at the crib, but it's still important for me to schedule visits to certified beauty professionals. Just in time for my birthday, Flesh Skin Studio invited me to come by for a Glow facial.

Last week, I had the opportunity to spend the day with Lincoln in Atlanta doing what I do best, SHOPPING! It all started with a fabulous brunch at the 5 star Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Buckhead and then stepping outside to learn more about Lincoln’s first-ever small premium utility vehicle, the MKC.

After having daughter, you realize how important self-esteem is. As soon as little girls start school, they start comparing themselves to other girls. We don't want our daughters to feel like they less beautiful than another little girl. Building self-esteem starts with us moms, aunts, grandmas and tee tees. I love that Dove is committed to encourage women to pass their positive beauty image down to the next generation.

I found my fall uniform! You know the outfits that you are easy to take care of, comfortable and always make you look good. I found mine at J. Jill in their Pure Jill collection. The Pure Jill is a collection of uncomplicated clothing with a variety for textures and soft fabrics. Uncomplicated fashion at it's best.

I'm an advocate for mixing high and low pieces. I've been trying focus on buying more quality pieces for my wardrobe this fall but these low price point stores keep calling me! And then my girl Danielle from The Style and Beauty Doctor posted this $20 jumpsuit. I straight swagger-jacked her and ran out an purchased this jumpsuit IMMEDIATELY! Seriously, on my lunch break!

I made my Sweet’N Low cocktail as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #SweetNLowStars. Thoughts and opinions are my own.
To celebrate my birthday today, I created my own guilt free skinny cocktail! I may be on a mission to drop a few pounds but I will not let this birthday pass without toasting with something delicious! So I created the Trina's Skinny Birthday Cocktail using Sweet’N Low.

It's amazing how fast the weekends go by. I feel like I just got off work on Friday. Short or long, I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. If you don't know by now, Peyton enjoys wearing hats or any head accessory for that matter. She looks so darn cute in them. One of the latest trends for little girls that I love are snapback hats. Our friends at Love My Alannah sent Peyton one of their new floral snapbacks!

Happy Mamanista Friday! I'm so ready for the weekend I can catch up with life. But what's new? You may have thought you dodged a "plaid" bullet last fall but it's back with a vengeance! Plaid is everywhere and Mama Fashion Files and I are rocking it for this weeks Mamanista Friday.

Peyton and I are back with a fresh Mommy and Me look! I had my eye on sheer bomber jackets since spring. When I saw that Posh Peyton carried one for little girls... I DIE! I told her I had to have one! I immediately found one for myself just like it!
