Mind Blown. LuLaRoe 2.0

I’m back with more LuLaRoe.  The kids were BOTH napping at the same time the other day and curiosity got the best of me. My mind was blown… #ineedtogetoutmore

Ok, prior to having kids, clothes and shoes were my jam. I LOVE CLOTHES. I am no stylist, but I love trying out new looks until I find something that clicks. These days I roughly have 11 minutes to my self each day and I try to use my time wisely. Finally drinking that up of coffee I have already microwaved three times and getting to pee alone (not overrated!). My goal is to pull it together and not look like Britney Spears circa 2007 meltdown when we leave the house. #neverforget

Whether you’re a Mom, Single, Divorced, or 65 and getting your groove back, these tips are fun and you can make them work for you! Confidence is key!!

 My mind was blown when I started trying out all the ways to style myself  so I knew I had to share. One tired, no F’s given chick to another. So… here we go. #somanyfunyonswereconsumedduringthemakingofthisblog #nochildrenwereharmed #momoftheyear

Meet Amelia. She is cute, fitted on top, flared at the waist, and oh so flattering. She also has pockets!!! Ready for the mind-blowing part? PUT IT ON BACKWARDS! All you breastfeeding Mom’s needing a dress for a wedding…here you go! Zip it down, nurse the baby, and zip it up. No one will ever know you have the dress on backwards and you can look super fab while breastfeeding on the go! #youcanthankmelater

Amelia on backwards = perfect nursing dress!

It has pockets!

Oh hey, Cassie! I talked about you last week and needed to try you out. Glad I did. This pencil skirt is your new best friend. Don’t be afraid to try a pencil skirt!! It’s all about how you style it. Oh, and it also doubles as a super cute tube top. Yes, honey! <— insert Nene Leakes voice right there.  Heading to a baseball game or bar-b-que? Cassie should be your go to!

Sweet, sweet, Azure. This is such a soft, comfortable skirt and I love how versatile it is. Having a baby over the summer? Get this. Super comfortable and totally C-section friendly, too!! Wear it as a skirt, dress, or top (or scarf!!). It rocks my world and will rock yours too. Plus, this is such a great skirt to have if you’re traveling at all this year. Three outfits in one. I don’t know about you, but my Husband has a heart attack when he sees how much I pack for a trip. This just saved me 3 extra outfits and the $75 over-weight limit at the airport. #winning

Maxi Skirts are my obsession. I live in Maxi’s as soon as it hits 60 degrees. It’s  such an easy outfit that anyone can put together! Put on your maxi,  a cute tank, and sunnies. Last step is to throw that hair in a messy bun and you are out the door. I used to stay clear of Maxi’s because I’m only 5’2‘’, but I jumped on this train and I’m never looking back! Plus, this skirt also doubles as a dress  and that makes this Mama happy.

Leggings/Jeans + Classic Tee/Randy Tee – this is my uniform. I live in leggings and t-shirts. Not so much leg prisons anymore ( aka – jeans), but I still put them on occasionally.  Make these looks fun by adding a cute necklace and flats or chucks! I am so comfortable in these outfits I would swear I’m naked. Lucky for you, I’m not. Two kids back to back has the girls looking like Brody’s 3rd birthday balloon we still have from February. Don’t pretend like you don’t know what I’m talking about… and if you really don’t know what I’m talking about, then I’m not sure how far our friendship can go.  #justkidding #boulderholdersareyourfriend #thankskids

Side note- I noticed this on the crack of my leggings today and it made me almost die. I cannot wait for someone to tell me to stick it where the sun don’t shine.

Last but not least, your new best friend, Irma. You probably need 5 of these, like yesterday. It covers your tush, is perfect with leggings, looks insanely cute knotted with a skirt, and makes the most AMAZING sleep shirt… HA! I am not even kidding. I wear an Irma to sleep at least 3 nights a week and it glorious. Do yourself a favor and add and Irma (or 3) to your closet.

Ok, so, that’s all I got.  All of these selfies made me realize I need to turn of Harry The Bunny when the kids go down for a nap. Seriously, an hour went by the other day until I realized I was the only person awake and still watching Bubble Guppies. In my defense, it was the episode when Molly gets a baby sister and I had been secretly excited to watch it. I can’t believe I just said that out loud… #youknowyouwatchedittoo

Anyways… Hope this gives you some new ways to style your clothes and make it your own! Comfort is key. No one wants to feel like this while chasing after their kids at the park…. #sorrykim #ouch #girlfriendneedssomelulalove

Sew Sassy. Stages of an Icing Addict.

A few weeks ago, a friend of mine sent me a message telling me to check out Sew Sassy Boutique. I went to the FB page,  thought the pants were super cute, and decided we probably needed to get a pair. I did the same, and passed on this info to my other friend. We quickly decided we needed jump on this whole ruffle pants bandwagon. They are insanely cute, and turns out, highly addicting.

Last week was our first stocking to try and score some Icings (they call the pants Icings). I scored (whoop, whoop!!) because I quickly realized this was like a Tula or Kinderpack situation. You need to bring your A game and cart like your life depends on it. My friend on the other hand, did not score. I had made my purchase, drank a glass of wine, and she was still chatting about what sizes and colors she wanted. I assumed she had just bought all the Icings and was deciding on what she was keeping…WRONG. I am still laughing over when she realized what had just happened. #sewsad #inventoryissues #noicingsforyou

Harper sporting her Soft White Icings! She’s in size 18months with some room to grow 🙂

In lieu of tonight’s stocking (good luck, Mamas!!) I thought I would post the stages of Icing addiction…at least for us…

This is what my life has come to.

Stage 1: What are these ruffle pants? They call them Icings?? Weird…. But so cute. We might need a pair.

Stage 2: Stocking at 7:30!? What the F is a stocking!? I can’t just buy them? This is ridiculous. We totally do not need ruffle pants THAT bad.

Stage 3: Don’t effing talk to me people! 3 minutes until they stock these Soft White Icings!! I NEED all the Icings!!

Stage 4: Inventory Issues.

Stage 5: Stalk the Buy/Sell/Trade page and pay $50 for Icings because if you don’t get them for your daughter,  you have officially failed as a Mother.

Stage 6: You are going to make this stocking your bitch. Three computers up. Wine in hand. Ready, Set, cart those little ruffle pants like it’s your job!!

Stage 7: Pray to the Icing Gods your Husband isn’t home when 15 pairs of ruffle pants arrive.

Stage 8: Officially replace “so” with “sew” in every conversation. #sewserious

You may be laughing at me now, but just you wait. The Sew Sassy Boutique addiction is real. On a serious note though, these pants are sew AMAZING. The quality is fantastic and they make any outfit just that much more precious! We are totally in love with our Icings! I promise you need some of these in your life.

May the odds be ever in your favor tonight…

 

Happy Carting!
