Dressing your post baby body can be a bit overwhelming but dressing up and standing in front of the camera in a outfit is just down right traumatic! I’ve made a pact with myself I’m forcing myself in front of the camera and wearing items that are already sitting in my closet (with the help of lots and of layers of spanx lol) in the hopes that it will motivate me away from my laptop and onto to the treadmill. I dont want to lose too much I just want to get rid of the belly my biggest pet peeve when getting dressed. This specific dress that I bought for 5 bucks at Marshalls has some pleating in the front which helps conceal the pooch. I decided to wear it for Mother’s Day when I realized that it fit me. It was a tad big on me before and now it fits me perfectly…. talk about taking the good with the bad! I love the dress but hate that it fits. 🙂
What I’m Wearing: Dress – $5 from Marshall’s (also seen here) | Boyfriend Blazer – $39.99 from Target (also seen here), Green Belt – $6 from Target (see how I worked it into another outfit here) | Striped Pumps – $29.99 from Forever21.com | Lexington Watch by Michael Kors from ShopBop.com (also seen here

This Mother’s Day, I’d like reflect on the inspiration and encouragement my mom has given me throughout my life. Much of my drive comes from her, and she’s a woman that gets things done! She tackles things head on without thinking twice. Her energy has always amazed me. Whenever I feel overwhelmed, I soldier on with a mental image of my mom doing a million things at once with a smile on her face.
I’ve been stacking different types of bangles on my right wrist for as long as I can remember. The routine is simple: I get dressed, grab a handful of bangles, slide them on and away I go. But not long ago one of my boys found two leather bracelets while digging through my jewelry and strapped them on my wrist (my little boys are fascinated with the amount of jewelry and shoes I have).
Anyway, I have yet to take them off…I even sleep with them…and now I just pile on cuffs, watches and other leather bracelets that I’ve had for ages but never even worn. I know this going to sound a bit eccentric but I’ve never liked the way new jewelry, shoes (more boots and sandals) or bags look so most of the time they don’t become a favorite they’re all worn in – which is why I love the leather bracelets so much. When you pair a somewhat masculine piece to your accessories it has a “I don’t care” accidental style. And that’s what accessorizing is all about. Check out some pieces below that would perfect for a stylish mom this Mother’s Day.
Mother’s day is about celebrating the special lady in your life who has given you so much and has taken care of you when you most needed it.
