Transition to Fall- Denim Shorts

Transition to Fall- Denim ShortsEveryone has a pair of denim shorts. Mine just happen to be this distressed. You can wear these long into fall, and here’s an example of how.

I pair them with a silk tank and topped with a long kimono. Don’t be afraid of the long hem! It doesn’t matter if it is longer than your shorts. Also, ditch the sandals to make this less summery and pair them with booties. Really…pair everything with booties! I love shorts and skirts with booties!

When in doubt, go with the bootie!

School Spirit Track Meet

Rest assured, just when the temperatures are on the rise, you’ll find yourself sitting on metal bleachers cheering on your miniature Olympian. What can you wear to be supportive and fun, all while not melting?
Here’s what I would choose-
The first outfit might not be the exact team colors, but it’s a light color to keep you cool. And a great hat comes in very handy!
The second outfit has some fun boho shorts and some fringe (and non-yawnworthy) sandals. Instead of full on gear, choose a team necklace and tote chock full of water and an umbrella for the sun.
I hope I gave you some summer spirit outfit ideas. I will be doing this again in the fall/winter. Don’t be afraid to break out of the athletic gear and into something with some personality!

School Spirit Baseball

Baseball season is upon us and that means lots of games out in the heat.  Here are a few ideas for those summer nights on the bleachers.
Keep in mind that showing your support for the team doesn’t always mean wearing a school shirt.  I love to wear just the team color in fun and different ways.
In the first outfit, I went with some tie dye and some lace trimmed shorts.  Because I have gone boho and I might never come back.
The second look is a cute little romper.  I know some of you moms are afraid of the romper. I’m not sure if you think this is going to look like you’re wearing something for your daughter or what.  But I assure you, life is short.  Wear what you want.  If you like the romper, wear the romper!  This time I packed my cute little backpack with fringe to tote the good camera!
For the last outfit, I threw on an easy tank top that you can find just about anywhere with a team hat, and some fun denim shorts.  Don’t you love those kicks?  I might need a pair…
Try to remember this guideline when you wear short short- the shorter the shorts=more coverage up top.  And when you wear longer Bermuda shorts, you can wear a tank.  It’s okay if you forget, I do all the time.
Keep rootin’ for that home team!

Fall Into Fashion 2015- Head to Toe Denim

As previously mentioned, just about anything 70s is back with a twist.  And I can’t believe I’m about to post this outfit but gaaaaddd, here it is.

The denim suit.  Yup, you can thank Joanna Gaines directly for half of America for even wanting to put this on their bodies.  Before you go all Justin Timberlake/Britney Spears on me, here’s a few suggestions.  1)  Don’t wear exactly the same shade of denim head to toe.  2)  This look can immediately scream this (and if you don’t know who this is, we can’t be friends)-

So mix up the masculine with some feminine pieces.  Or just wear it to work with a hard hat.  🙂

Breaking All the Rules- Disney Vacation

My family decided to celebrate our 10 year anniversary with a Disney vacation.  We have never been to Disney. And I’m trying to imagine how I’ll pack. It isn’t easy as the weather could be cool and rainy or hot and sunny!  Not to mention we’ll be traveling through all different climates just to get there.
In my effort to pack for kid friendly activities, I’m breaking all of my own fashion rules!
Here are five of my own fashion faux pas!
1)  Leggings, leggings, leggings
Mainly I will taking leggings because I figure I can be comfortable in them hot or cold.  And lots of layers- sweatshirts, t-shirts and outfits that I would only wear when running around after kids in a theme park.
I’m basing my outfits on what shirts I have that are tunic length.  Let’s be honest, not too many of us moms should really ever have our backside showing in leggings.  Unless you are very, very confident…
2)  A backpack
I will take a backpack to the park.  But I just can’t quite sport one of my kids.  This fun little boho backpack outta do the trick.
3)  Mainly solid tees in a loose color family
I don’t anticipate many prints being packed while will make for some lackluster outfits.  This and being constrained to tunic length tees is leaving me with a loose color family.  But this is one destination that I feel I can make some exceptions.
4)  Sneakers and flip-flops
I will also wear mainly slip on tennies and flip-flops, something I wouldn’t do at home.  But I know we’ll be walking a ton and I need these feet to be comfortable!
5)  Very little accessories
And for my accessories, earrings are about the extent of what I will pack.  They are so small and hardly take up any room!
A few things that I couldn’t leave at home that might redeem an outfit- a scarf, a necklace and don’t forget the shades!
Next week, I’ll try to redeem myself by showing the different outfits one can create from this simple packing list!
