Oct 14, Cozy Flannel

I had so much fun last week with my Nordstrom inspired theme week, that I’ve decided to do another one- but on my own terms! It really does make getting dressed easier when you have a point of reference to start. So, here are my plans for the week: Monday: Cozy Flannel, Tuesday: Camo, Wednesday: Dress or skirt, Thursday: Athleisure Wear, Friday: Weekend Ready Graphic T shirt

What could be more fall than a flannel? I mean seriously! It’s like the quintessential fall outfit. My first look was ripped jeans, the flannel and tennis shoes, but that is a little plain.

So then I decided to tye the flannel around my waist and pair it with a white henley long sleeve shirt. I really like this look- it’s a great casual, weekend outfit! For a little less casual version, I thought I’d add this cute utility jacket. This jacket is perfect for chilly fall mornings, it’s not too heavy, but adds a bit of warmth and style at the same time. I swapped out the tennis shoes for my slip on ones, and made sure to roll the sleeves of the jacket. I think the last look would be appropriate for school- but I would not wear the distressed jeans. No school for me today though (it’s conferences, so no substitutes needed), so I’m off to have some fun with girlfriends! 🙂

June 7, June Gloom

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!

Happy Friday everyone!

May 25, Good Karma

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!

May 14, Camo Leggings

Good morning ladies! I am running late again today (I am more tired than normal and I’m having a hard time getting up. Anyone else experiencing this?) Anyhow, I’m working around the house and running errands this morning so I am extra casual in my camo leggings, cute graphic t shirt with a jacket tied around my waist.

In my before photo I have paired the leggings with a plain white sweater. To me, it just seems odd. They don’t go together. The sweater is preppy and sort of dressy, and the leggings are super casual. Why not try a graphic t shirt instead? Since the shirt is short and doesn’t cover my butt, I’ve tied this jacket around my waist. It gives me coverage, and adds a little warmth if I need it. The flip flops are also a little cuter than the old worn out running shoes.

No time for links this morning- plus my t shirt and jacket are super old. Leggings are from Nordstrom Rack, flip flops were from vacation in Hawaii a few years ago. I bought them in the gift shop! Have a great day!

April 22, Rainy Monday

It’s supposed to be gray and rainy today- so for my OOTD I’ve chosen a very casual, easy look of a black tank, jeans and a cardigan. I call this my grandpa cardi, because it reminds me of something my grandpa would have worn! The heathered cotton creates a great neutral color that literally goes with everything. Sometimes I keep this in my bag to have in case I get cold while I’m out.

All I’ve done to change up my before look is swap out the wool cardigan for this lighter weight one. The one on the left is too wintery, and also looks a bit like a bathrobe! I then rolled up my jeans to show a little ankle. Last, I threw on a long necklace to break up the solid black.

I love this sweater! It’s old (from 2015) and I tried to find something similar to link to- but failed. Sorry!

Super easy, super casual and so me! I love outfits that are comfy, relaxed and warm.

April 20, Grateful

I’ve worn this sweatshirt once before, as seen here, but I thought I’d wear it again today. As I mentioned in my post on Tuesday, in my opinion, the secret to happiness is gratitude.

Looking at the before outfit, there are just two tiny things I am going to change.

1. I rolled down the jeans. In the before picture, they are too short. Just a couple of inches makes all the difference in the world. Be sure your cropped jeans aren’t too cropped!

2. I swapped out the gigantic sweatshirt for a slimmer, more fitted one.

That’s it! But boy, doesn’t it make a difference?!

Happy Saturday everyone!

Sweatshirt- Target

Jeans- Levi’s (these are regular length, I cropped mine myself)

Shoes- Birkenstocks

April 5, Friday Casual

It’s finally Friday! Has this seemed like the longest week ever? It has to me! 

Today I’m going super casual with my distressed boyfriend jeans and a black top. It’s hard to see in the photo- but this top has really cute details- the fabric has vertical subtle stripes, the sides split  & at the shoulder there are zippers. Cute, right? 

The after look is an improvement for 3 reasons!

1. The jeans in the before are weird. I can’t put my finger on what is wrong, but to me- they just look strange. I think it’s the holes. They are in an odd place.

2. The slip on tennis shoes are a huge improvement over the bright orange and blue tennis shoes- and just as comfy- but way more stylish!

3. The fleece is warm and all, but it has absolutely zero style. This cute top- with side slits, zippers, and a better neckline is much more interesting.
