I can’t say enough how much I love this black bomber jacket. I bought it at H&M a few years ago, and it is such a great staple in my closet. It’s the perfect alternative to a cardigan for a chilly day.
In the picture on the left, I am wearing an American Eagle grey v neck t shirt with a zip up workout jacket from Lucy. This little jacket is perfect for when I’m playing tennis, but paired with a regular outfit it looks out of date. Instead, I’ll wear a black bomber jacket with the sleeves pushed up. This is a little more stylish, and just as warm. I’ve also replaced the white tennis shoes with my black Adidas- they don’t draw as much attention to my feet- and pair nicely with the black jacket. Tuck in my shirt, add a belt and some jewelry and I am set!
After a very busy 3 days (Convocation, 16th birthday for my daughter, Father’s Day and Graduation) I am GRATEFUL it’s all over! Today I want to chill in my comfy clothes. It’s grey and drizzly outside- so joggers and a sweatshirt are perfect for today.
In my before photo I am wearing my super comfy (but not very stylish fleece lined Lululemon pants. While these truly are the warmest and most comfy pants ever (and they were great when my kids played soccer), they aren’t flattering. The way the leg flares out below the knee is awkward, plus they are too long. My grey joggers are much cuter and fit better! My new white slides (Target) are also a cuter option than the white Birkenstocks (don’t get me wrong, I love my Birks, but the slides add a more stylish!) and the Grateful sweatshirt is a little more flattering than the big white hoodie on the left. The hoodie has a pocket in the tummy area, which adds bulk in a place where I do not need any!
This whole outfit is from Target!! Gotta love that!
Today’s outfit is my distressed jeans and a cute black and white striped dolman sleeved top.
In the before photo I am wearing straight leg jeans- and I have the top pulled down way too low. It’s much cuter scrunched up at the waist and with the sleeves pushed up. Also, if you look closely, you can also see my bra strap peeking out. If you’re wearing a shirt that has an open neckline like this, try a fun bralette instead. This looks so much better than a regular bra straps. The distressed skinny jeans are also a better option than the straight leg jeans- and the strappy sandals complete the look! Happy Friday everyone!
It always amazes me how most of the country seems to be in full summer swing, and yet here in the PNW we are still in school, and the weather is crappy. We call it June Gloom.
It’s supposed to storm all day, so I have chosen jeans, a white long sleeve top and a cute purple vest. This vest will do a nice job of keeping me warm today- yet doesn’t look super wintery. Other changes include swapping out the plain white top for a cute henley style one, rolling the jeans and my white tennis shoes complete the look.
I apologize for two days in a row of me showing super casual, not so stylish (or inspiring) outfits. I want to keep things real over here on Everyday Mom Style, and in reality, this is what I am actually wearing! I worked from home all day yesterday getting ready for my son’s graduation party, and today I’m teaching 2nd grade- so casual it is!
In today’s OOTD I started with my white jeans and added this cute patterned tank. I love the design down the front- and think that the contrast of the dark top and the white jeans works well. I know I’ll be cold this morning, so I need to layer. I could wear this grey cardigan, but to me- this is too basic, and a little frumpy. Instead, I’ll wear my green tencil bomber. If you’re a regular reader, you are probably aware of how much I love this green bomber jacket. It’s just such a comfortable, versatile and easy to wear piece! I’ll also roll up my jeans a little to show some skin, and I’ll finish the outfit with my brown leather braided sandals. A big improvement over the original look, huh?!
For my outfit today I am wearing my favorite pants- my comfy joggers paired with a simple black tank.
As you can see in the before and after photos (and as I’ve been mentioning over and over) details matter! In the before, the tank is cotton and has a regular scoop neck. Nothing wrong with this look, but isn’t the one on the right more fun? This cute camisole from Uniqlo is made of polyester, and has a draped front which hangs better and doesn’t cling. I also like the neckline better, and the black lacy bralette underneath adds bit of sass and edge to the outfit. Changing the shoes from Birkenstocks to the peep toe wedges completes the overall look. If I get chilly, I can throw on a cute black Moto jacket. Have a great day!
Happy Memorial Day Weekend! It’s a bit chilly- so I’m not looking very summery today, but I also want to make sure I don’t look like it’s the middle of December (like I do in the photo on the left)!
I’ve chosen my distressed jeans, my Good Karma tank- and to keep warm- a cotton cable knit cardigan. For my feet, I have chosen these cute new sandals I just found at TJ Maxx! They are Mia brand, and I love them- they are cute and comfy! I have a feeling I will be wearing these A LOT!!
Hope you have a fun & safe weekend!
