The following post is written in conjunction with The Motherhood, all opinions are my own.
My oldest daughter loves fashion. She knows her own taste and is very particular which is why I typically let her pick out all her own clothes. Because my daughter knows her own mind, which I love by the way, the idea of letting someone else choose her clothes did not seem appealing. I had the privilege of learning about Kidbox right from the owners and I was really impressed. I have tried other services and they did not provide the depth of insight into the child’s taste that KidBox does so I knew if anyone could please her it would be Kidbox. Before you say, no thanks I don’t want another subscription service, know this is not that. Kidbox is a style delivery service for kids that only chooses the hottest brands and styles. After seeing the brand list with names like Lucky Brand, Limited Too, Seven for All Mankind, Diesel, Jessica Simpson, Reebok, Catherine Malandrino and more I was excited to try it out. As you can probably tell already these are nice brands and yes they come with a higher price tag and that is why you need Kidbox. Kid box sends you a box of 6-7 items and only charges you $98 for all of it. You can keep it all or buy individual pieces and send the rest back with no additional charges. Plus you are not charged and then refunded, you only get charged when you agree to keep the stuff.
My kids are involved in multiple sports in the spring and here in Ohio that means I will spend time out in the rain, probably a lot. This spring I used my rain gear a lot for long track meets with on and off rain. And even beyond that I have grabbed my Helly Hansen Wesley Trench more often than not. Even on days that it’s not raining I find myself wearing this trench. Not only is it great in the rain but it is stylish and comfortable, this is a fabulous coat that happens to be waterproof too.
Lularoe is popping up all over the place and people are obsessed with these super soft and quirky leggings. If you have followed me for long at all you know that I am not a quirky fashion person but I do love people embracing their own personal style. As I have watched people stock pile these buttery soft leggings I had to know what all the fuss about Lularoe was about. And of course I had to address how to wear Lularoe leggings because leggings are not pants and there is a better way to wear them.
So what is my opinion? Yes they are super soft and cozy and if crazy prints are not your thing Lularoe leggings also come in solids and tamer prints. So how would I style Lularoe leggings? Pretty much how I would style any leggings with the golden rule always being adhered to. So what is the golden rule of leggings? Always cover your back side. I don’t care how super skinny, teeny tiny you are leggings are not pants, think of them more as thick tights and you will never go wrong in styling them.
This spring it has been unseasonably cool and that has created some fashion dilemmas. It seems like every outfit needs an extra layer to keep me warm but that doesn’t mean I can’t bring out my cute sandals and show off my pedicured toes! I recently discovered Secret Celebrity shoes and decided to give them a try. The first shoe that caught my eye is these stunning coral sandals. I love the bright and bold color and they simplicity of the classic deign makes them super versatile.
Being a mom is such a wonderful experience and having a mother who is a great mentor has set me on the path to loving, embracing and succeeding as a mom. My own mom was my biggest cheerleader, she never missed a game or a performance. Now as a mom juggling all my kids activities I truly understand what it took for her to do that. She made a choice to be there no matter what or how difficult. It can be so frustrating to wrangle a toddler in the bleachers while trying to watch my oldest child play basketball or run track but I want to be there for my girls. I want to be the face they see and the voice they hear as they try their best.
Being a mom means loving and supporting all the time. It means encouraging our kids to try their best and supporting them no matter what the outcome. I am so lucky that my mom not only cheered for me but now she is doing it again but this time for her granddaughters. I have my mom by my side helping me wrangle those kids so that when my child is playing I can be all in and not distracted, for that I am forever grateful. So thank you mom for inspiring and supporting me and now my kids too!
