Nov 23rd, Disneyworld, Day 4

I must take a minute to apologize to anyone who’s feelings I hurt by posting the photo of the tie die family and the lady with the socks. I meant no harm! In defense, this is a style blog- and in my opinion- those items really aren’t very stylish. But- as many readers pointed out- in Disneyworld anything goes- and dressing alike in huge crowds can be a great way to keep a group together.

Today’s post is actually from Universal Studios, not Disneyworld!

Again, I’ve gone with comfort, warmth and layering! I’m wearing my cropped skinny J Crew jeans, a white tank (which you can’t see), my polka dot top and a gray cardigan. I’ve chosen my Dansko sandals again- and again I must sing their praises! These shoes are awesome! I will admit, looking at the picture, they aren’t super stylish, but for the sake of having comfortable footwear, I don’t care!

In my hand is my 2nd glass of Butterbeer, from Harry Potter world. If you’re planning a trip to Universal, I highly recommend trying some (get the frozen kind- and don’t wait in line to get it, go into a pub).

Jeans: J Crew, Top: Target, Cardigan: Banana Republic, Shoes: Dankso, Belt: Ann Taylor

August 28th, Let Me Introduce Myself

Hello Friends!

For any of you new readers out there, I wanted to quickly introduce myself. My name is Megan and I’m a married mom of 2 kids. We live in a suburb of Seattle- so my style is very Pacific Northwest!

I started this blog a year ago in order to document my daily outfit. It was a fun way for me to learn about what works and what doesn’t.

Please note that I, by no means, consider myself a fashion expert!

I simply love clothes- but I love easy, comfortable, normal clothes- that real moms can wear!

I know it’s not high fashion! I just want to look nice every day- and so this blog helps keep me be accountable for that.

Ok, that being said- here is my outfit for today. (Truth be told, I actually wore this the other day – when it was super hot!.)

All I’ve done is pair a blue tank with a blue and white striped skirt. Pretty basic, right?!

Not really- this is a fairly full skirt and with the tank untucked, it makes me look large in the hips/ tummy areas.  However, by tucking my tank in- and wearing heels instead of flats- I’ve slimmed my waist and elongated my legs by several inches. (Wouldn’t you rather look long legged than long waisted?)

Let me tell you about these heels. I normally am not comfortable in heels. I prefer flats- but these heels are truly one of the most comfortable pair of shoes I’ve ever owned. The brand is Naot and the are somewhat expensive- but they are worth every penny. I could wear these for 12 hours (in fact I have) and my feet and back don’t ache at all!

Also notice that the color of the heels is close to my skin tone- which helps with making my legs look longer. Now look at the dark brown sandals- just the color alone draws attention to my feet and the ankle strap literally cuts my foot off from my leg- making them look shorter.

So, if you are a flat girl- but want to try a comfy heel- consider trying Naot. The style is a little bit more fashionable than Dansko’s (although my Dansko sandals are awesome too!).

There you have it, my tips for the day! Tuck in your shirt (didn’t your mom always tell you that?) and don’t be afraid to try a wedge heel!
