Oct 12th, Casual Friday

 For most people, Friday is a casual day- so I wanted to show an outfit that is casual- but I still looks like I put a little effort into my look.

In my outfit on the right I am wearing jeans, a t shirt and a jacket. It’s a common look I see moms wearing all the time- and let’s face it-  there is really nothing very cute about this look!

To improve the outfit, I replaced the casual t shirt for a cute checkered shirt– then I added a gorgeous cable knit sweater over the top. I like seeing the collar, sleeves and the tails of the shirt peeking out under the sweater (this look was inspired by Dreaming in Cashemere’s cute outfit seen here).

For my jeans I have on these straight leg, dark wash J Crew cropped jeans- and I have replaced my Birks (I do wear these around the house) with black patent flats.

As for the finishing pieces, I decided this sweater has so much detail that I felt like it didn’t need a necklace, but I added a cute black bracelet.

It’s basically the same style outfit as my before look- but so much cuter, don’t you think?

By the way, thank you so much to everyone who took a minute to write yesterday! I loved hearing from everyone what their opinion was on my outfit! I think you all have great points- and I love hearing from you!

A close up of the cute details of this sweater.
Just take 5 extra minutes this morning and put together an outfit that makes you look and feel great!

Feb 17th- Red Eye

Sorry for the delayed post. We took the red eye home from CA last night- and got home at 2:00 am. Remind me never to do that again!

I’m planning on running a bunch of errands today,  so I’ve opted for a really simple, yet comfy outfit (as usual).

I’ve chosen my grey cords and a blue cable knit sweater. On the right the 2 together look rather blah- (especially in this bad lighting) but by simply adding a striped shirt under my sweater and then accessorizing with the red necklace and shoes- the outfit takes on a totally different look.
I remember when I was younger and I thought the only thing you can wear under a sweater was a turtleneck. Preferably one with dolphins or rainbows (LOL!  Just watch these will probably come back into style- I sincerely hope not). My point is- when these turtlenecks went out of style I didn’t know what to wear under sweaters. (I know, I told you I’m no fashion expert!). Luckily, I’ve learned that you can throw a sweater over a t shirt or a blouse and achieve a pretty cute look, if I do say so myself!
I’m linking with Fashion Friday  with my friends at Girlymama today! Be sure to check them out too! Have a great weekend.
I like how the stripes break up the solid colors.
