What I Wore On Mother’s Day

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. 🙂

Sleek All Black Outfit & Metallic Flats

Well I finally gave in and started to exclusively wear flats.  Okay, so I didn’t exactly decide because I had no choice – my feet will not fit into ANY heels! Heck I could barely get any closed toe shoes to fit me comfortably so I’ve been wearing flip flops everyday.   But on chilly Florida winter days  I knew I was going to need something else to wear and I was so happy when Hush Puppies sent me over a pair of their stylish flats.  I picked the Cora Driver Moc because I love how the metallic color glammed up the casual shoe but they also come in a TON of other fun colors.

They’re so so comfortable and my feet are so so happy! 🙂  Check out how I  styled them below.

Add a touch of metallic to any outfit and you’ll instantly have a more attention grabbing look.   It can be in the form of shoes, bags, pants or as I prefer a skirt.  This pleated metallic mini skirt is adorable and sassy.  It’s rosette print gives it a vintage-y touch while the metallicgives the skirt the sexiness.  Pair with chunky knits and tights for now and later or wear it with a  denim jacket and tee.  I can totally see Olivia Palermo rocking this skirt with a chic turtleneck and huge shades!  Check out how I styled it below

Chunky knits will make this skirt easy to wear during the day.   Pair with tights and add some layering for a chic winter look.

Black & White

SO happy I can still squeeze into this black  dress and my favorite white blazer.  Love the black and white combo for an evening look and the red bag for a pop of color.  I’ll definitely have this red bag in hand a lot during the holidays.  Wondering why I’m rocking the animal print heels a lot lately?  They’re one of the very few heels that still fit me comfortably.  Thank God I love them. 🙂

 

 

Shoes are comfy for about 20 minutes.  Had to put them aside to finish taking pictures.  Good thing I packed my flats inside my bag 🙂

Stylish Cravings: Modcloth’s Following Dreams Sweater

I love me a great layering piece like the following dreams sweater from Modcloth.  Perfect to drape over a pretty dress or jacket, layer under a jumper or blazer or even just slung around your hips.  I took one look at it and immediately knew that I would style it for a fun quirky fall look.  First I added a flirty a-line dress, must have suede booties, denim jacket and a cozy knit beret and convertible gloves. To finish off the look the following dreams sweater would be draped over the denim jacket with the adorable kittie tote at your side.

Follow Dreams Sweater  | A-Line Dress | Denim Jacket | Booties | Knit Beret | Convertible Gloves | Tote 

Lots of great fall pieces that can be worn a ton of different ways in just one outfit.  For a dressier version you can easily add a sequin mini, tights and pumps or go casual with flared jeans, wedges and a blazer. Either way you can’t go wrong with this cute versatile sweater.

Thrift Store Find: Vintage Faux Fur Coat

I’ve always been an avid thrift store shopper and nothing is more exciting than finding something you love on the cheap.  Just the other day my son asked me to take him thrifting and I was SO excited not only because he showed an interest in one of my passions, but also because we were going on a day that offered 50 percent off clothes.  While my son was looking to find what he called “Cosby” type sweaters I hit the women’s clothing section and found a spotted faux fur coat for $16 but I got it $8!  I expected the coat to need some type of tailoring but it fit perfectly and it’s in amazing condition!  I won’t be wearing it too often here in Florida but I now have a super cute coat for my frequent NY visits.

What I’m Wearing:

Vintage Faux Fur Coat – $8 from Local Thrift Store

Mint Green Dress – $7.50 from T.J. Maxx

Pointy Toe Pumps $70 from Yesstyle (also seen here)

Modern Square Bag c/o meet mark find it here (also seen here)

Betsey Johnson Sunglasses $20 from T.J. MAxx

Way Too Matchy Match

January 16, 2013 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

“It’s way too matchy match” is a phrase I use so often that even my kids know what I mean!  My pet peeve has little to do with color.  To me style should look effortless and when the pieces you’re wearing are too matchy match it looks intentional.  Take for example my favorite pattern stripes. I always have a striped tank, a striped scarf, or a striped sweater (like the one below) on hand whenever I feel something is a little too matchy match.  My general rule of thumb is, if it’s going to be a matchy match kinda outfit I’d rather go the monochromatic way and use the color head to toe.  Intentional?  Heck yeah but it’s a minimalist style that so chic – it supposed to be intentional.  Below I paired one of favorite striped sweaters, polka dot denim top and ankle zip skinnies.

What I’m Wearing:

Striped Sweater – $19.99 from Forever 21

Polka Dot Denim Top – $24.99 from Forever 21

Ankle Zip Skinny Jeans – $19.99 from Marshalls

Modern Square Bag c/o meet mark find it here

Shoes $70 at Yesstyle
