Holiday Looks- Velvet Pants

Holiday Looks- Velvet Pants

Here is a look that I have worn from church to a work Christmas party and also may be a great option for New Year’s Eve. 

This time of year, I love velvet and these cute little ankle pants from Old Navy won’t break the budget, but pack lots of style.

Pair them with something equal to the richess of the velvet- a satin top or a sequin blouse. Add a statement necklace that brings in color and some sparkly heels.

Ready for whatever!

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!

Travel Day

Travel Day

Pretty soon it will be Memorial Day weekend.  It may not seem like it since the temperatures don’t want to warm up, but that is the official kick off to summer!

I couldn’t be more excited!  I may throw my alarm clock out the window soon.  The kids are telling me its time.  It’s time to be out late at night playing until dark and sleeping in.  It’s time to be through with the schedule.

If you have travel plans for the big weekend, I’ll help you pack.  Send me a question and I’ll feature it on the blog.

Here is a great travel outfit.  It could not be simpler.  Did you know that wearing heels during a long car ride is a great idea?  As long as you’re not hauling heavy luggage anywhere once you arrive, you’ll be off your feet for an extended amount of time.  Might as well take advantage of that!

This outfit is a basic jeans and tank look.  What makes the outfit is the kimono top.  This is a huge trend for summer and you’re going to see it everywhere.  Mainly they’ll be worn with short-shorts or crop tops but I’m pretty sure I’m opting out of those categories.  You’ll be channeling your inner boho and be looking great in this easy piece.   These are especially great for those of us that don’t really want to show much skin or are insecure about how our arms look.  Look for one that has a little bit of length to it.   I especially like them when you can see your waist, so tuck that tank top in!

Now you’re travel ready!

Stud Earrings for Mom

Studs for Mom

Continuing with mommy style, there are lots of times that as moms, we can’t put together great accessories in a pinch.  The remedy for this problem?  Stud earrings.  Just that little bit of sparkle can pick up even the drabbest of outfits.  The bonus is you can wear them continuously if you wish, even while sleeping.

I put together the basics of studs.  Working our way from the top on the left-

These silver flowers are a great workhorse pair.  These are for every day and can be worn with small chain necklaces and simple outfits.

This pave pair in the middle is a little fancier.  You can dress them up or down, but they are sure to be noticed.

It’s always good to have a pearl pair.  You never know when you’re going to need some pearl studs.

On the bottom left- this pair is for those special occasions.  They’ll give you a ton of sparkle for a night out.

The middle pair is another basic workhorse.  They can be worn daily or dressed up.  Lucky you, those ladies who have real ones.

And finally, a pair in your birthstone would also be a fun colorful option.  If you don’t like your birthstone, just pick your favorite color, a color you wear a lot or a pair that bring out your eyes.

No need to run around with naked earlobes!  Throw on a pair of studs for easy mommy style!


I don’t appreciate technical difficulties.  I’m sorry to report that the image that appeared with yesterday’s post on my Facebook feed wasn’t the right image.  I hope I’ve got it fixed now.
