Five Ways To Look Pulled Together

I’d like to say that I go to bed at the same time everyday, and that I have the perfect outfit picked out every night, a flawless makeup routine but that’s not always realistic for me or many other working moms. Instead what I’ve done is mastered the ability to look pulled together in a matter of 10 to 15 minutes without much of an effort. It’s great to be able to have a few tricks up your sleeves on busy mornings or when you’re traveling and want to just get on the road and have some fun! Below are five ways to always look pulled together.

Five Ways To Look Pulled Together

1. If you’re a jeans and tee kinda mood, layer a pretty necklace or scarf, or sexy heels and if the weather permits add some layers with a well fitted blazer and or sweater.
2. Avoid wrinkled clothing, it screams I was running late. A quick pass of the iron goes along way and it’s worth the effort.
3. Skip your makeup routine and use these things instead: lip gloss, a pink blush, and mascara or even better false eyelashes (any style will do but I lean toward understated and prefer false eyelashes). I always focus on my eyelashes to they’re like caffeine for the yes and instantly make you look wide awake!
4. In dire need of a mani but short on time? Trim nails, lather up on lotion and apply a shiny top coat.
5. If all else fails, wear a head to toe black outfit! You can never go wrong by wearing black or any monochromatic outfit because they instantly look chic and even have a slimming effect. Try it and thank me later!

Bottom line is if you keep it neat, clean and simple you’ll always look pulled together and chic! More fashion/outfit tips can be found here!

It’s been a while! Just wanted to pop in and share these gorgeous lingerie sets that would be perfect for a new mom. As a mom, I know first hand that in the first weeks that the baby is born all the attention is focused on the baby, as it should be! However, I also know that the quicker you start to feel like yourself is better for everyone! One of my favorite ways to ease back into a little normalcy is with a brand new lingerie set. Nothing too extravagant, just something that I could put on that isn’t covered in spit up and makes me feel pretty! Bonus points if it’s gifted to me ahead of time because I have something to look forward to! Scroll down to see some of my favorite lingerie sets.

This robe set is perfection! Silky, comfy and the robe covers up any little pooch you may want to disguise.

A sleepwear pant set is always a must-have and this set is not only comfy and cute, it’s sexy! I love the vibrant colors that 3 Wishes offers. The fact that they have it in plus size makes it even sweeter!

While the other two choices are more practical, this babydoll is all fun while still offering a bit of coverage.

Celebs Go To Accessories

Hey guys! It’s been a while and I wanted to pop back in with a fun new post! Accessories are my number one favorite thing to shop for because they add personality to any outfit! I personally have a ton of sunglasses and earrings but I love getting inspiration from celebs and their go to accessories. Like me, they love their sunglasses and Ray Bans (Ray Ban Cats are my favorite) are a classic staple that just about every celeb out there wears. Along with sunglasses, light weight scarves, a oversized watch and a great pair of earrings are among the most worn accessories. Scroll through slide show below to see the stylish celebs go to accessories!

Lets start with the most used year round accessory: sunglasses! A classic pair of Ray Bans will never ever go out of style and are seen on stars like Drew Barrymore, Reese Witherspoon and many many more! Click here to see more celebs wearing Ray Bans.

Scarfs are among the list as well and for good reason! They have the ability to add a stylish cozy touch and the fact that they’re avaibale in light weight fabrics make them perfect to tote around in your bag all year round! Zooey Descahnel is the perfect example of how to make the moost of sunglasses and a scarf. Cute coat, sleek boots are a must during the colder months but her accessories give the look a effortless stylish push.

Who doesn’t love a pair of pretty earrings!? They’re the most versatile accessory and they can be worn with any outfit!

Give your outfit a masculine touch with a oversized watch! I don’t think anyone wears it better than the Olsen twins who always wear a oversized gold watch.

A quick grab and go bag is a oversized clutch (this one is perfect)! They feel so glam and they’re easy to stuff inside a bigger bag making them the perfect day to night accessory. Seems like I’m not the only one who loves them because style icons like Olivia Palermo is never seen without one!

What are some of your favorite go to accessories?

Hey guys! I’ve been having so much fun playing dress up with Olivia and I thought that since it’s been a while since I last checked in that a cool kids clothes would be perfect! When I first found out that I was having a girl, I immediately started shopping for her. Her closet is filled to the brim with TONS of clothes, accessories and shoes. After having five boys, I definitely went a little crazy and bought her too much of everything. When I was given the opportunity to pick a few items out from Sailor Janes and have a kids fashion giveaway I jumped at the chance! Sailor Janes is an online boutique that carries fresh, current and, to be honest, hard to resist clothing, accessories and even toys for girls and boys!

It was hard not to buy Olivia AND Joseph just about every little thing at Sailor Janes, but I did narrow it down to two things I wanted for Olivia that I have been looking for and couldn’t really find anywhere else: a striped tank top onesie that is super soft and has amazing quality black and a white coffee muslin wrap which may or may not be just as much for me as it is for her.

Outfits Under $50

April 23, 2016 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

I’m always on the lookout for a good bargain.  Most of my scores are found at my favorite spots like Marshall’s, T.J. Maxx and Ross but I will shop anywhere at anytime as long as it has the right fit.  Lately I’ve been noticing that a lot of my outfits have been ranging from about $50-$100 so I decided to share my top 5 under $50 and next month $100. To start things off I decided to go with my latest buy a chambray top from Walmart.  I already have a bunch of chambray tops (one with polka dots, one with florals and a thick dark denim one that I sometimes use as a little jacket) so I wasn’t looking to buy more.  However, I walked by the  clearance rack at Walmart and spotted this light weight studded chambray top for $9 and I had to have it.  At $9 it’s got all the right details, a studded collar that I love, tab sleeves and the fabric is light enough to wear all year. Thinking it would be great to wear as a beach cover up… I have lots of plans for it but this time I wanted to pair it up with a mini and my brown sandals.  Not bad for an entire outfit under $50. 🙂

What I’m Wearing:

Chambray Top – $9 at Walmart

 Mini Skirt – $7.99 at Ross
Sandals (also seen here) – $24.99 from a local boutique
Necklace – $5 from a Brooklyn boutique wish I could remember the name of the store
Clutch c/o meet mark
Bracelet c/o Twisted SIlver

Sassybax Convert-A-Skirt For Day & Night

February 25, 2016 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

A little black dress is a closet staple but a little black dress that’s also a skirt and minimizes my waist and midriff is just genius!  When I first got the Sassybax Convert-A-Skirt I immediately worried that it was going to be one of those suffocating fabrics – but it’s not.  Sure it’s snug, but just snug enough to slim all the right spots.  The more you play around with it the better it looks and what totally had me hooked was how when I realized that it held up the “little girls” and we all know that’s not an easy task.  I wouldn’t say I would be able to go braless in it BUT any strapless bra would do (unlike other strapless dresses without support where I have to search high and low for maximum support).   I’m obsessed with this dress!  The fabric is a matte black making it super easy to dress up or down.  It stays put which is important for me because I plan on wearing it on the dance floor and it’s machine washable.  I could go son and on!  It’s the perfect dress to pack on any vacation, for a night out on the town or under a blazer for a sexy office look.   For more info on Sassybax’s Convert A Skirt visit www.sassybax.com

The Formula: Denim Jacket

~ The Formula: Denim Jacket ~

Still one of my favorite dresses.

Whenever I want to look pulled together but not too dressy I throw on a denim jacket.  I’ve had this dress from Ross for years and I’ve worn it solo during the summer, with sweaters and tights when it’s cold but my favorite is with denim.  I was originally going to wear my deeper blue Levi’s jacket (seen here) but I thought the distressed one from American Eagle went way better with the boho vibe. Tip:  If you’re lucky enough to get casual Friday’s at work, a denim jacket is an easy replacement for a suit or blazer and you can wear it with any skirt or pants.

What I’m Wearing:

Dress $14.99 from Ross

Distresses Denim Jacket  $39.99 from American Eagle (also seen here)

Crossbody Bag c/o meet mark

Bangles/cuff $12.99 from Macy’s

Penny Wayfarer sunglasses c/o Stunglasses.com
