hipster mom

January 22, 2016

When your hair has been laid and slayed with half a jar of  Eco-Styler gel by a hair combing little girl while you were sleeping, a hat becomes your best friend until you find the time to wash your hair.

This is a true story by the way.

Was never happier about picking up this hat from Target Dollar Spot than yesterday when I had to hide the dried gel crunchiness that is my hair.

With a day full of errands and a meeting I really and truly needed to be more comfy and warm than anything.

Don’t ask about the closet renovation.

Just don’t. Not right now, while I’m still digging clothes out of boxes.

Thanks.

classic. casual. comfort.

December 4, 2015

I received compensation to facilitate this post. All opinions are mine

I have a confession. I almost can’t stand to wear anything with a high heel anymore.

I mean there is no other way to hand over your hot and sexy card than to trade in your pumps for flats, but this is where I am in life. I’ll wear heels if I must but I am way more interested in stylish comfort these days and for me this means flats. Those years of wearing nothing but heels, has worn on me and my knees and back can only stand heels in low doses.

One brand that has nailed style and comfort is Naturalizer, when I say the inside of these Naturalizer Tanita boots feel like clouds, bottomless mimosas and baby cuddles.

For details sake:

  • These boots retail for $199.99 but they are on sale here
  • The N5 Comfort technology, features a flexible sole, lightweight materials, extra cushioning, heel-to-toe balance, and a breathable lining
  • These boots also come in a wide calf option, along with additional colors and textures to include leather

I’m beginning to think my wardrobe has turned into Groundhog Day. Give me an oxford, jeans, jacket and flat boots and that’s about the extent of my fashion these days.

After purging my closet earlier this year and working with a closet organizer to maximize the space in our itty bitty closet I’m opting for more classic pieces these days.

Hunter Boots

rainy day style

November 5, 2015

I love my Hunter boots. L O V E.

A friend of mine asked me if they were all of that for the price and my answer was yes. I’m not an advocate of splurging on everything but some things like designer rain boots make you feel fancy on dreary days.

If you know me you know there are a few things that are just me, and my oxford shirts and “popped” colors are just something I do. Ever since I can remember I been poppin’ my collar. Bonus points to you if you know of that trappery.

fall layers + heirlooms

October 28, 2015

Fall glorious fall, your golden, and red leaves are pure eye candy.  Your pumpkins and mums make everything right with the world but your wishy washy weather makes me want to throw things, specifically those pumpkins on my porch that I love so much.

The weather extremes here over the past few weeks have been totally unpredictable. I always struggle with whether to dress for the season or for the weather. My one go to look during this in between time is the all familiar concept of fall layers.

Banana Republic Sweater

 

When I layer and the temps heat up I either tie the sweater over my shoulders or around my waist.

Recently,I’ve been trying to get things in order around here, and in the process of clearing out unpacked boxes I am always coming up on some of my mother’s things. Things that I once planned to only store away but have decided that I am going to wear and use some of these things.

Like this bag.

 

Banana Republic

 

It’s a little worn and has some stains but I plan to take it to a leather repair shop and get it whipped back into good shape. It even has her initials on it. *I’m not crying typing this….I promise*

This sweater was a total score. I got it on clearance, and clearance just happened to be an additional 30% off. Paid a whopping $13 for it.  Have you found a good deal lately?

Oh. My son took these photos in exchange for an hour of iPad time, as he is on punishment. I didn’t direct him at all other than teaching him to focus the lens. No more tripods and remotes for me, I have an official photographer. He actually enjoyed it, unlike his Dad who gives me at max 10 shots to get it right.
