Mom Must Have Convertible Cardigan

mom style, north carolina blogger, casual style, convertible cardigan, style on a budget

Hey y'all! I hope your week is off to a great start! This week is an incredibly busy one for me so thank goodness for a slow start to the week yesterday (my kids were out of school) and lots of coffee! During busy weeks, I need clothing items that are easy and functional, while still remaining stylish. Today, I am styling one of these kind of items and I think every woman, especially moms, need it!

I saw Mallory from Style Your Senses wearing this convertible cardigan last spring and I fell in love with the multiple style options!



This great convertible cardigan can be worn in a criss crossed wrap style (which would be so perfect for nursing moms) like pictured above or as a long cardigan by simply unsnapping it! I styled it with my favorite high waisted denim, a simple white tank, and cut out ankle boots for a the perfect, comfortable mom on the go style to create a great mom uniform!

Mom Uniform: a comfortable yet put together outfit that allows a mother to complete all of her mom duties in style. (You can find another great mom uniform in this post.)

I also plan to style this true to size cardigan with my overalls or with shorts when the weather warms up this spring. It would also be perfect for taking on a trip because you can wear it two different ways on your trip for multiple outfit options. The styling possibilities are endless and I think every woman needs amazing piece in her wardrobe!

Target Finds for Mom and The Girls

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend! My husband and I have decided to start a monthly tradition of a family date to the movies. Last month, we saw The Greatest Showman together and this past weekend we took the girls to the movies again. This time, we saw Peter Rabbit and all four of us loved the movie. Josh and I found ourselves laughing out loud quite a few times! It was a really great movie for the whole family. I would definitely recommend it!

I feel like my Monday posts are just so random lately but I kind of like them that way! I am basically just rounding up what's on my camera roll and things that I shared on my Instagram Stories. Today, I'm sharing a couple Target try ons that I did over the weekend and some recent purchases for my girls. I get a lot of questions about what my girls are wearing when I saw pictures on them on Instagram so I thought it would be fun to share some of the items that I have recently purchased for them.

This top is such a great find for only $15! I tried on the size medium so I would definitely recommend sizing up one size because I found it to run a little bit short on me. This would be so cute paired with boyfriend shorts for summertime!

Online this top says it's "red" but it's definitely more pink in person. The material is so soft and breathable, too. I sized up to a medium for a more relaxed for a longer length to wear with leggings and skinny jeans. I would also wear this under my overalls! It's such a great basic top that can be worn in so many different ways. It also comes in a pretty purple striped option as well!



My daughters are seven and five (26 months apart). I almost always dress them in the exact same outfits or something super similar. When I'm checking out at any store, I either get asked if I have twins or if I'm not sure what size my kid wears because I'm buying multiples of the same items. I dress my girls the same for two reasons: it makes my life so much easier to pick out the same outfit for them and because they are little girls that get jealous if their sister's outfit is "better" than theirs. Little girls are complicated, lol. But on Saturdays, I let them choose their own outfits (within weather constraints) and this is honestly kind of hard for me to let go of control of their outfit because I love dressing them. However, it's fun for them and interesting to see what they come up with. My seven year old chose jogger pants and glitter ankle boots this weekend. I would have never chosen that combo for her but she rocked that look with confidence!

I buy almost all of their clothing at Target and Old Navy because the prices are amazing. I have been buying a few pieces for their spring wardrobe recently. One of the main things I was looking for was a great denim jacket for them to layer over dresses. I found the perfect one at Target:



I also bought them this adorable dress that will look so cute with the denim jacket:



And how are darling are these little shoes?! I had to get the pink ones!:



Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great week!

Currently Loving

style on a budget, currently loving, north carolina blogger, mom style, spring style

Happy Friday! I hope you've had a great week! I'm sincerely looking forward to some fun ad relaxation this weekend. We don't have any big plans and I'm actually pretty excited about a couple of low key days with my family. After the busyness of this week, it's much needed! 

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm currently loving. I am starting to add transitional pieces to my shopping cart that will work now and later when it's officially spring (even though it really felt like spring here the past two days). Which of my picks is your favorite?!

1. Denim Jacket | Every women needs a denim jacket in their closet because they are perfect for springtime (or anytime) layering. I love to wear mine over dresses!


2. Top | I love this ultra feminine top! I own a super similar one in black by this same brand and it's always a go-to of mine. I actually wore it yesterday with skinny jeans and ankle boots. It's definitely one of those fuss free kind of tops that you will reach for over and over.


3. Mules | These mules are very similar to my Madewell ones but this pair is only $25! I always size up a half size in mules for extra length .


4. Lace Trim Tank | This tank is such a cute layering piece that you can wear now and later. I love the adorable lace trim detail!


5. Bag | I have this bag in blush and it also comes in two other pretty colors. I bought it last spring and carried it so much! It's extra roomy, has a convenient crossbody strap, and it's lined with animal print. Sole Society always makes my very favorite bags!



6. Gingham Dress | How darling is this gingham dress?! It's also incredibly budget friendly and a must have for spring! A gingham dress is always a classic and never goes out of style.


7. Bracelet | My best friend sent me a picture of this bracelet earlier this week and immediately added it to my wish list. I love all things Kendra Scott and this color combo is the best!


8. Jeans | I am loving this straight leg pair of jeans and I don't already have anything like them. You can never have too many pairs of jeans, right?!


Thanks so much for visiting! Have a great weekend!

Wear What You Love

how to wear overalls, style on a budget, mom style, casual style, north carolina blogger

Hey there! I hope you have a great Valentine's Day! Today is all about overalls! I haven't owned a pair of overalls since I was probably five. They aren't something that I typically think of as being stylish or flattering! But, I found this pair and I fell in love with them. I debated back and forth whether to actually purchase them because I was worried about what other people what think. However, that's just silly!  One of my favorite Instagram ladies, Karla Reed, shared the wisdom that "90% of style is confidence" and I couldn't agree more. Wear what you love and I love these overalls!


I styled my new overalls with a basic white tee, a comfy cardigan, and my new ankle boots that I have been living in. I'm so excited for the endless outfit possibilities! I am planning to style these overalls through spring and summer by changing up my top and shoes. 

This pair of overalls fits true to size. I'm typically a 27/4 in jeans and I found that the small fit me perfectly. They are definitely fitted but I have room to breathe (which is kind of essential, lol). I also found this pair that I love as well (the button detail is too cute) and they are less expensive, too!

Instagram Roundup

Happy Wednesday! I hope y'all are having a great week! I spent yesterday morning truly adulting by doing our taxes. This is the second year that I've filed our taxes on my own and it definitely makes me feel like a real adult. I'm thirty-two and I have these random moments where I'm like, "oh wow, I'm a real grown up now." Haha, anyone else?! 

Today, I'm sharing an Instagram Roundup and half of the photos were taken at Target. I guess it really is my home away home (check out more of my latest Target run in this post). The weather is so strange in North Carolina right now that you have to carefully check the weather the minute before you leave the house because you just never know what it's going to be like. We have had rain, winter, and spring in the past week. Layers have been the perfect way to handle this season!

These ankle boots are a must have! I put off buying them online but when I tried them on in the store, I knew I had to have them because they are incredibly comfortable. They fit true to size and I wear them without socks.

I can't stop buying things from the Universal Thread collection! I absolutely love the laid back, classic style. These earrings are one of my favorites from the collection. I own them in gold and silver. My ears are super sensitive and I can wear them all day without any discomfort.

I shared all of these products in my latest Ulta haul post and I am loving everything so far! I shared more detailed information on the CC cream in yesterday's blog post.

Like I mentioned above, layers are the way to go right now. This cozy sweater poncho has been one of my favorite purchases this season.

I never thought I would say this but I am loving overalls! This pair is so flattering and I can't wait to share how I styled them in tomorrow's post. Stay tuned!

I had to get this sweater from Target because it's the perfect neutral color and so great for transitioning into spring. I love a slouchy fit in this kind of sweater so I sized up to a medium to wear with skinny jeans, leggings, and shorts this spring.


Thank you so much for visiting! I hope you have a wonderful day!
