There are some great options right now for wearing lightweight leather in the spring & summer. Opt for shorts or skirts as I find it more breathable than a leather top. With our weather in Chicago creeping up to the 80's, the last thing I need is a sweaty top :).

Last week was a stressful one with my work load increasing, a new intern starting, and guests at our house. I'm feeling guilty as I know I need more help with my little one in order to keep up with my growing business. It is a choice every woman makes if you have children, to stay at home or go back to work and I've been very lucky to do both. Owning your own business gives you some freedom to manage your schedule but it also means working all the time. The balance of costs, career, being a great mother and wife, it has me stressed, worried and feeling overwhelmed. How to find balance is a question I constantly ask myself. And the step of maybe having full time care for my little one has me questioning myself as a mom. Any advice and tips would be much appreciated.
This blog has enabled me to meet many wonderful people, grow my business and share my shopping tips as well as a bit of myself. It is easy to show the fashion and styling part however a bit harder to share the meltdowns and stresses of life. I want to be a fantastic mom, wife and friend and double my sales in t+j Designs and I'm doing it all the best I can however it was just one of those weeks where I felt I couldn't manage it all. Things are great overall, I think I just need a vacation!
I can't thank you enough for reading, sharing and supporting me.
