Roe Remix

lularoe, lularoe style, mom style, style on a budget, how to style lularoe

Hey y'all! Yesterday, I styled the Julia and Joy from Lularoe Jenna Green. I wanted to show y'all just how versatile these pieces are by sharing a different way to style each item. One of my favorite things about Lularoe is the way you can really make the pieces fit your own personal style. I love how creative you can be while expressing your own personality through your clothing. I definitely believe that Lularoe helps women feel confident and comfortable!

I remixed the Joy by pairing it with distressed skinny jeans, leopard pumps, a bright pink bag, and a comfy long sleeve top. I love how easy it is to layer this vest over pretty much anything for an instantly more put together look! I think the Joy would also be great for using as a swimsuit cover up during the summer! Wear it now and later.

The Julia dress is also a super versatile piece! Like I said yesterday, form fitting pieces are typically out of my comfort zone so I made the Julia work for me and what made me feel comfortable. I wore it yesterday with the Joy layered on top but I also thought it would be really fun to wear the Julia as a skirt with a cozy sweater layered on top! I was super warm for the chilly January day plus my problem areas were covered so I felt confident. I can also see myself wearing a poncho with it or I could wear it with a chambray layered on top during the springtime. 

My giveaway with Jenna to win your own Julia dress is still going on through 12 noon EST on my Instagram account. Good luck and have a wonderful day!

Julia and Joy

lularoe, lularoe style, how to style lularoe, style on a budget, mom style

Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Today, I am so excited to style two more Lularoe pieces from the sweetest consultant, Jenna Green! She is so kind and even sent my daughters each a pair of comfy leggings in my package. It seriously make their day! Throw kindness around like confetti, y'all! 

I styled the Carly, Sarah, and One Size Leggings back in December. This time I'm styling the Julia, a form fitting, knee length dress that's extra feminine and perfect for layering. To be super honest, I was a little nervous to try the Julia because it's description of being form fitting. I've had two babies and I have hips. Like I've mentioned many times, I typically prefer to wear loose fitting clothing because that's what I feel the most confident in. But I decided to try it anyway! To feel more comfortable, I decided to size up to a medium for a little extra room but keeping the feminine silhouette. This dress would be so perfect for a Valentine's Day date with someone special!

I layered the Julia with the Joy, a lightweight long vest with side slits that adds the perfect layer to any outfit. I love the easy pattern mix with the floral print, too! I'm wearing a size extra small in the Joy. Layering this vest over the dress helped me feel even more confident in this look. 

I'm teaming up with Jenna over on my Instagram account to give you the chance to win your own Julia dress! Be sure to check out the post there for all of the details. Have a great day, y'all!

Happy Friday! I hope you have all had a great week! Today, I am sharing eight items that I am currently loving. Which item is your favorite?!

1. Distressed Black Jeans | I am loving the distressed look of these jeans and this brand is one of my very favorites. They always fit so well and run true to size.

2. White Peplum | I'm so excited that peplum tops are popping up everywhere! It's my very favorite style to wear because they are flattering and feminine. My favorite combination!

3. Cosmetic Bag | How fun is this bag?! I think it would make such a cute Valentine's Day gift for someone special. I love the gold sequin lettering!

4. Blush Nikes | These shoes are probably my most favorite item on my list this week! I am currently obsessed with athletic shoes and athleisure in general! I will have to get these super soon! The color is just so pretty and fits my style perfectly.

5. Lipstick | I am loving MAC lipstick right now. The saying you get what you pay for is so true. I love the quality of the lip color so much!

6. Crossbody Bag | This bag is a great look of less option and the color would match any outfit. I love the gold chain strap plus it's super affordable.

7. Travel Mug | I own this mug and love it so much! Coffee is my love language.

Poncho and Americano

poncho, gray monroe, mom style, mom blogger, style on a budget

Happy Thursday! So every morning, I have to drop my oldest daughter off at elementary school by 7:45am and then I take my youngest daughter to school at 8:15am. My four year old and I usually have at least 20 minutes to wait in the car before she can go inside. Well, I always come prepared. We are super fancy and eat our breakfast in the car. It's also where I do my morning coffee drinking! I never want to waste what's in the coffee pot so I pretty much always fill up two to-go cups to take with me. Olivia informed me that I "drink way too much coffee."Well clearly she's never been a momma or a grown up for that matter. Haha! My go-to caffeine fix is always an Americano because it's low in calories but high in caffeine so that works for me! What's your go to energy boost?

Today, I'm excited to style another beautiful piece from Gray Monroe! I have quite a few ponchos in my closet because they are such an easy, comfortable way to stay warm and stylish. Some mornings, I throw one on over whatever I'm wearing so I look a little more put together in the car rider line. Instantly dressed and no one really knows that you actually are wearing pajamas underneath! 

This Brookie Poncho is definitely my current favorite in my closet! Y'all know that I am a lover of stripes so as soon as I saw this one, I knew it was meant to be mine. Since the stripes really do the talking, I decided to pair it was all neutrals: a black top, black leggings, cognac boots, and a black bag. This is such an easy look that anyone can pull off and it's comfortable, too! 

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

Instagram Roundup

 With Style & Grace

Hey y'all! It's Wednesday! We are half way through the week! Today is my first workday of the week since the students haven't had school due to teacher workdays. Sounds fun, right?! Wrong. My kids are on different schedules and have had school the past two days. So I had to get up at 6:15am on my days off. If you know me well, you know that I love my sleep and I need it! I should definitely go to bed earlier but Grey's Anatomy Season 12 keeps me up! Anyone else watched this whole series?! I love it!

Today, I am sharing my weekly Instagram Roundup! You can click the link and pictures below each photo to find items that are pictured. I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Laser Cut

cuddy studios, mom style, mom blogger, flare jeans, leopard clutch

Hey y'all! I hope your week is off to a great start! Today, I am styling another gorgeous piece from the Cuddy Studios Spring 2017 Collection! This collection is filled with vibrant prints and amazing styles that you are going to love. Last week, I styled this colorful bell sleeve dress that was also from the spring collection. Cuddy is known for it's simple, sophisticated silhouettes and the laser cut top that I am styling today is just that: simple and sophisticated!

If you have been reading my blog for awhile (and thank you for those who have), you know that I am a really big fan of being comfortable. If I had to describe my style in one word, it would most definitely be comfortable (but stylishly comfy)! I prefer tops and dresses that have a relaxed fit so that I feel my most confident. Before motherhood, I would wear much more form fitting clothing but with my career and mom duties, loose fitting is just more practical and appropriate for my lifestyle.

This beautiful white laser cut top from Cuddy Studios is just what my closet needed! I own very few white tops because for the past six years of being a mom, white just wasn't a great color choice. But now that my daughters are getting older and they spill less staining liquids, I can start bringing more white into my wardrobe. I love the relaxed fit of the top and the laser cut fabric as well! I paired it with flair jeans (I forgot how much I love these), my leopard clutch, brown boots, and simple jewelry. I felt so chic and sophisticated in this look! This beautiful top will also be available in other colors for spring. 

Be sure to follow Cuddy Studios on their social media accounts that are linked at the bottom of this post to see more of the spring collection and to know when it goes live for purchase. Have a great Tuesday! Thanks for stopping by!
