Versatile [pregnancy] Style

Style and function is something that I have been looking for when I enter the new mom world.  Harper and Bay came across on my instagram account and I fell in love!

This dress not only works now during my pregnancy days but it has cute zippers to make breast feeding easy! I will probably even wear it when I am out of those seasons of life!  I have heard over and over again from my mom friends that finding clothes that make breast feeding easy can be hard to find… Especially dresses! These are seriously so perfect and Harper and Bay carries great on trend styles!

PS I can’t wait to repost on this dress after baby Tripp makes his debut!

Fixing those “bra-blems”

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE clothes.  I think it is so fun to be able to express individual personality through what we wear.  However, most of us think a lot about what people see outwardly and not what is underneath.

Undergarments are SO important for the fit of clothes.  More importantly bras can change the way the top half of your outfit looks.  Being a larger chested lady that is fairly petite it can be a real struggle to find a good fitting bra.   Every body type is different and it is hard to know what bra works best for your body. UHMMM and can we just say pregnancy has not helped with this situation!?!!!

I know most of you can relate to how frustrating “bra-blems” can be. And I think all of us women can agree that these issues can make you want to rip off your bra the moment you walk in the door at the end of a long day!

With the help of ThirdLove we can solve most ladies “bra-blems”! Their “Fit Finder” is wonderful and really specializes with your body type AND the types of bras you like, so you can find the best bra for YOU!  CLICK HERE to view all of the bras they carry!

ThirdLove has also given me this great “quick fix” guide that can help improve bras that you already own! I truly believe that a good foundation builds a great outfit and you have to start with a good fitting bra! A good fitting bra can help with back issues, confidence, shoulder and neck pain and just overall daily comfort; so treat yourself to something that will make your everyday life a little bit better!

YSL Touche Éclat Neutralizer Review

Hi loves!

I received the YSL Touche Éclat Neutralizer  in bisque to try [thanks Influenster)!

In recent months [thanks pregnancy] I have struggled to cover up the dark circles under my eyes.  This neutralizers goes on very smooth. Does not feel heavy and doesn’t cake on.

It works well with other makeup I already use and really does hide my dark circles.  I am really loving how lightweight the product feels and how easy it is to use! See below for a before [ekkkkk no makeup] and after.

OOTD: Tailgate Edition

IMG_3042

Pregnancy style has been a little hit or miss for me lately.  I am at a really awkward point where I don’t really look pregnant…. just like I drank a few too many Coors Light. I’ve just been wearing some pieces that tend to be a little big on me and thats what seems to work right now.

This tailgate outfit had LOTS of layers because it felt like negative 10 degrees outside (at least to me it did).  I had been eyeing this vest for years but HATED the vinyl print one that was popular at a certain outlet store.  I found this one that is real stitching and got it monogramed for cheaper than what the outlet carries it for.

Monogram is a must

Hi y’all! It has been a minute since I have posted.  I have been over on Instagram completing the #MarchStyleMadness style challenge!  It has been lots of fun and stay tuned for a recap post about that.

Anyhow back to the blog topic.  My best friend Paula, graduated from Nursing School a few weeks ago.  I had been wanting to get her a gift but wasn’t 100% sure what to do.  Then, one of my friends posted some pictures of monogrammed name badge buttons and I was sold.  She sells them on her Etsy site.  Right now the site is on hiatus because she is GETTING MARRIED!!  You can also check out her BRAND NEW home renovation blog Becoming the Beatys.

The name badges are so cute and add such personality especially for those who have to wear scrubs and can’t show their personally much through their clothing.  Here are the badges I had made:

From work to work out

Athliesure wear is a fun trend right now in fashion and I am ALL about it.  With how busy our lives are I love that there are options of fashion that can take you from the office to the gym and you look good at both places! Plus, it saves time and money having clothes that serve a dual role.

So I partnered up with one of my favorite boutiques again Tiger Lily to help showcase athliesure wear!

Blazer Series: Part 2

 

 

Since I started this series I decided I should publish a little “How to” for blazers.  They are so versatile but sometimes that can be really overwhelming when creating an outfit.  So here ya go!

picstitch

Step One: Blazing it up. Find a great structured blazer.  If you don’t have one already I would recommend black or navy as they are very neutral and can go with many blouse options.

Step Two: Top of your game. A soft blouse/ t-shirt or sleeveless shirt to go under the blazer. For a more casual occasion I go with a plain t-shirt and for a dressier occasion a blouse. Feel free to spice it up with a pattern or a bright color! Just remember your shoes and accessories will need to compliment one another.

Step Three: A mean jean. A well fitting pair of jeans.  Remember jeans can be colored or regular.  Whatever you feel most comfortable in or whatever color is suiting your mood! I prefer a dark wash denim with my black blazer. It gives it that dressed up crisp look. But when I am going more casual a light wash jean is my “go-to”.

Step Four: Pump it up.  A nice pump really helps balance the jean and blazer look.  Gives you classy and edgy look. Go for a fun color (magenta) or pattern (leopard)!

Step Five: Bling, Bling.  A statement necklace is the icing on this outfit.  If you haven’t gone bold with your shoes, or top here is where you can make your impact.

Step Six: Show em’ what you got.  Have fun in your new outfit!

Dress Duo

I am so excited to partner up with one of my favorite boutiques for this post (and hopefully more in the future)!  Tiger Lily is located in Stillwater, OK. However, don’t let that sway you they are great at custom orders and keeping customers updated about what they have in store.  OR if you have a picture of something you like send it their way and they can help get it for you.

They sell quality products for great prices. Great candles, clothes, accessories and more! Today I am going to style two dresses with the same accessories. I am going for a more casual look but as you can see in the collage two beautiful ladies are sporting the dresses with a night out look so they are VERY versatile! newoutfit
