Happy Friday, friends! In case you didn't know, I used to wear a tee shirt and jeans every single day. While I am still all about comfort, I want to take it up a notch and this outfit might just be the trick. The whole outfit is from Cents of Style and the super soft tunic is just $19.95 + FREE SHIPPING w/code TOPSTORY through 3/26. I paired it with pants similar to these, which have a bunch of holes in them but the colored denim make them feel fresh and fun for spring.

Mexico City with ma familia

St. Regis drone shot

The three of us took a trip to Mexico City at the end of last year. It was our second time there and we loved it. The drone captured the shot of us in bed at the St. Regis. We loved staying there for numerous reasons. It's gorgeous, centrally located, and the service is top notch. JC found a good deal in between Christmas and New Years, and it's hard to say no to a good deal at a beautiful hotel like this one. I would say my favorite part was our butler Antonio, but really it was just spending time exploring the city and hanging out with my favorite big and (not so) little guy. Room service breakfast nearly every morning was pretty amazing too.

Since vlogging is one of my new favorite things, here is the video of the trip, on my YouTube channel which now has 40,000 subscribers - WHAT?! THANK YOU THANK YOU!

Jack's BIG BOY BED

Jack's Room + New Car Bed! | Amy Tangerine

When I was little, I was a total tomboy and I was completely enamored with the idea of having a car bed. My obsession with cars was fueled by not only the little cars I would play with instead of dolls, but also a show called Knight Rider. I was certain that if I could sleep in a "car," my dreams would be that much cooler! So once Jack outgrew his crib (as seen in this house tour post), I knew exactly what kind of bed he would get...

Imagine my excitement when Step2 offered to send Jack the bed of my (I mean his) dreams! How awesome is that?! You may have seen others similar to this one, but this blue color is a Step2 product exclusively available at Walmart. I couldn't wait for JC to get it all set up in his room and let him take it for a "test drive!"

Luckily he was just as excited about it as I was! He even helped JC figure out all the sticker and decal placement while I was out of town. Even though his room is quite small, I'll now often find him playing or reading on his bed throughout the day.

We decided to move our library cart of children's books from the playroom to Jack's bedroom so he could reach for his favorite stories while laying in his awesome new bed.

He loves showing it off to people when they come over. "Do you want to come and see my bed?!" Which I suppose is only cute and acceptable at a certain age. So far the best part to me is that while he knows how to get out of his bed, but chooses instead to call for me or "DADA!" to get him up in the morning. Also the best news for you all is that the bed is currently on sale!
