Monochrome Kendra Scott Jewelry Look: Kansas City fashion blogger COVET by tricia showcases a black and white spring transitional spring style featuring Kendra Scott jewelry. Here's how to style a knotted blouse with white pants, peep-toe heels, and gorgeous jewelry from Kendra Scott. The jewelry used in this post is available from Threshing Bee in Overland Park, KS.

Last weekend, Hubby and I had a day date at Prairiefire, one of my favorite destinations in Kansas City.

And after the movie [that my husband picked!], I pulled him into Threshing Bee, a fun local boutique, to check out some jewelry [that I picked]. Read on to see the fun monochrome Kendra Scott jewelry look I selected!

Brown Sweater and Ripped Denim: We're in the midst of a never-ending winter in Kansas City [ugh, Kansas weather!], so, as a Kansas City fashion blogger, I'm sharing one of my favorite winter fashion looks to get your wardrobe through until spring hits! You can't go wrong with a classic brown v-neck sweater, and the ripped jeans give this outfit a bit of edge. Of course, no mom outfit is complete without a stylish diaper bag!

So I feel a little weird posting about a sweater, jeans, and boots in April. But we have a never-ending winter going on here on Kansas City, so I’m sharing some never-ending winter fashion.

But at the end of the day, my kids are loved and that's all that matters. A mom's reflections on why it's OK to not be a super mom.

A few days/weeks/months ago [who knows, because I’m terrible at keeping track of time], I published a post called Day in the Life of a Stay-at-Home Mom of 2. Since then, it’s been my most-viewed post. It’s made the rounds on social media, and I’ve received feedback–publicly and privately–basically saying that I don’t measure up as a mom.
