fabkids sisters

 

It’s a new month and that means new fashion at Fabkids. I have been featuring Fabkids fashion for months now and have yet to be disappointed, they offer stylish dresses that fit little girls perfectly and the skirts and shirts are fun and fit great too and you can’t beat the price for cute fashion delivered to your door!

 

fabkids jewel dress

 

Our most recent Fabkids clothing finds are some of my favorite. The jewel dress is fun and whimsical yet is that classic FabKids dress fit that I love and the fabric can take anything my girls dish out, no thin fragile dress here folks! My daughter LOVES her jewel dress and wears it all the time, plus it came with matching leggings, you know matching leggings are the way to my heart! She is wearing the Teal Gem outfit.

 

fabkids skirt

 

My 3 year old is wearing the cutest skirt and top combination, it’s girly, feminine and fun… all the things a little girl wants in her clothing. She is wearing the FabKids Enchanted Skirt outfit.

As you know I am a fan of Fabkids, they offer stylish children’s apparel each month for the low price of $29.95. This is a subscription based service but you choose the items and you choose whether it comes or not. Recently FabKids made some great changes to the service that make me love it even more including the option to mix and match the outfit pieces creating the look that your child will love best. And your first outfit is just $15.

Comfy Winter Outfits from Lee

When I think of Lee I think of classic jeans especially skinny jeans, my favorite skinny jeans come from Lee. This month I decided to try out some Lee pants and straight leg jeans to see what other fits and styles Lee has to offer. So here we  some comfy casual looks all with Lee jeans and pants.

 

lee black pant

Lee Natural fit pull-on kate skinny pant

This slimming black pant is perfect for a casual dress pant and the pull on detail means you get a seamless waist band with no extra bulk or bump. I styled these pants with a red turtleneck sweater, faux fur vest, leopard heels and long necklace. I love how slimming and comfortable these pants are and they are perfect for the life of moms since they are made of cotton making them easy to care for.

lee jeans red shoes

 

Lee Platinum label comfort fit lynn straight leg jean

This straight leg jean is perfect for everyday. The back pocket flaps are very flattering and the stretch allows for comfort and a great fit. Add into that a secret waistband to help smooth you out and these will become an everyday staple. I paired these jeans with a simple cotton sweater, plaid scarf and festive red flats making it comfortable, practical and fun for the holidays.

 

lee jeans gray

 

Lee Perfect fit brinkley straight leg jean in platinum

Gray jeans are really trendy right now and these are just gorgeous. I love that these jeans look a bit dressier and can easily transition from day to night with a few simple changes in your outfit. The straight leg makes them great for with heels and they are really flattering on. For this look I added some black booties, a leopard baseball tee, black and white plaid scarf and faux fur vest.

 

So what do you think about these different styles of Lee jeans and Lee pants that I tried?

Would you wear gray jeans?

Or how about black pull on dress pants?

Well Christmas season is in full swing at our house and oh my have we been busy! This past weekend I hardly had a moment to take a breath and our Sunday was especially busy. We started the day with 8 am mass then i went to the grocery store because I literally have had not had another moment to go. Then at noon my kids joined classmates to sing on the radio in support of a local charity. Then at 1:130 my husband and played live on the same radio station again for charity. PHEW.

 

nativity

 

Well after that the big girls and I went downtown Columbus to see the life sized nativity, it really is a beautiful display that chronicles the story of Jesus from the angel Gabriel visiting Mary to the birth of Christ. After that we went my parents house ot help them decorate their tree. Yes it was a long and exhausting but fun day. So here is what I wore for the first half of the day then I made an outfit change for the outdoor stuff. My DSLR was acting up (thankfully not broken) so excuse the bad phone photos.

Holiday Style for Less

This holiday season there is no reason to go broke over holiday style when you can look fabulous for less. Believe it or not Payless ShoeSource has you covered for stylish holiday shoes that will make any outfit shine (and your feet won’t hate you at the end of the night). I went into my local Payless to check out the shoe selection and was blown away by all the cute shoe options and the new DexFlex Comfort and Comfort Plus by Predictions. I am loving the stylish selection of shooties available in a wide variety of colors and styles. I could not resist the leopard print Women’s Harper Zip Shootie I envisioned it with holiday red perfect for a festive party outfit. And of course every woman needs a classic black shootie to pair with everything from jeans to dresses!

 

With stylish shooties from Payless the holiday outfit possibilities are endless. I had fun putting together some super stylish looks that won’t break the bank and all inspired by these stylish and comfortable Payless shooties.

 

 

Have a hot date night with your husband? This is the perfect outfit a great pair of leopard shooties with a skirt and blazer, add some great jewelry and a red hot belt and you look festive and stylish all in one.

 

Do you have a holiday party that you need the perfect outfit for? Whether it’s a work function or with friends this outfit is perfect. A slimming wrap dress, great jewelry and some black shooties are just what you need. Believe it or not everything but the dress came from Payless!

 

 

If you need a more casual look shooties are fabulous with jeans. I paired my leopard shooties with some black jeans, black turtleneck, peach cardigan and silver and black scarf. I love how this outfit looks elegant and fun, perfect for a more casual holiday get together.

 

 

I mentioned that shooties pair great with leggings, well add some leg warmers and a poncho and you have a super stylish outfit just like this one. This outfit features the Women’s Sonya Dress Bootine in black.

In case all those great outfits haven’t convinced you to check out Payless then the prices will, boots for under $30, yes please!

What I Wore Real Mom Style: Decorating for Christmas Casual #RealMomStyle

red thermal silver scarf

 

This past weekend we went right into Christmas mode, we went with my in-laws and extended family on my husbands side, like we do every year, to cut down our Christmas tree. We go to an adorable Christmas tree farm in Sunbury, Ohio called Country Cabin Christmas Tree Farm and it is always a fun day. That same day we put up our Christmas tree and decorated it, which meant I hauled boxes of decorations and ornaments from the crawl space and for all of that I needed the right outfit.

How to Style a Sweatshirt DIY


hanes gray sweatshirt with flowers

 

The weather is turning colder which makes a classic fleece sweatshirt sound like the perfect outfit choice, soft and cozy it just makes sense in the freezing midwest. While I love a great comfy and cozy sweatshirt I prefer a bit more style so I took 2 comfy, cozy Hanes sweatshirts and did a little DIY magic  no sewing involved) and I could not be happier with the results. I started with a Hanes Live.Love.Color fleece crew neck sweatshirt in light gray. Then I added a black leather pocket (iron on), with the addition of the leather pocket and a great scarf this sweatshirt was already looking stylish. I decided to add jut a touch more and embellished the sweatshirt with some delicate black flowers (iron on) and I really, really love how the sweatshirt turned out. I styled my Hanes sweatshirt with some long black beads, black layering tank and distressed skinny jeans and I love, love, love it!

I also had a Hanes Live.Love.Color Fleece Zip Hoodie to keep me cozy this winter and after the success with my DIY sweatshirt I decided to add a little sparkle and shine to my burgundy zip hoodie. I added a silver sequin pocket (iron on) to my Hanes zip up hoodie and it is the perfect touch of fun I was looking for. Add some jewelry, cute jeans and a layering shirt underneath and you have a stylish outfit that works for every job a mom has to tackle.

Hanes sweatshirts are just as comfy and cozy for my kids as they are for me. After my success with DIY sweatshirts the girls of course wanted a little extra something added to the cozy new hoodies they have. The Hanes Girls’ ComfortBlend Full-Zip Hoodie Sweatshirt is super cozy and comes in great bright colors that my girls love, they prefer their hoodie over a coat when the weather allows and now that I added a little iron on bling and pizzazz they are in love.

And of course we can’t forget dad he has plenty of sweatshirt options when it comes to Hanes. For men Hanes offers comfy and cozy sweatshirt goodness in the Mens Hanes ComfortBlend EcoSmart Full Zip Hoodie, Hanes ComfortBlend EcoSmart Crew SweatshirtPerfect and the Hanes ComfortBlend EcoSmart Pullover Hoodie Sweatshirt. My husband loves a great sweatshirt and these are super comfy, here are 3 ways to style a men’s sweatshirt.

2. Hanes ComfortBlend EcoSmart Crew SweatshirtPerfect over a plaid button down shirt and under a denim jacket.

3. Hanes ComfortBlend EcoSmart Pullover Hoodie Sweatshirt under a blazer

 

As you can see Hanes sweatshirts are versatile as well as stylish, add to that super comfortable (tag free) and you have a great wardrobe staple. And if you are feeling like you need to take your sweatshirt to the next level of style just add a lite iron on DIY like I did.

What I Wore Real Mom Style: Monocromatic Monday #RealMomStyle

conversation pieces gray tunic

 

I used to wear a lot of all black and really loved a stylish monochromatic outfit, black is very slimming after all. But lately I have been embracing more pattern and color in my wardrobe. For whatever reason today when I grabbed my Happy Hibernating Lounge Sweater (which I own in 4 colors because it is that amazing) I decided to go monochromatic. I paired this super comfy tunic with my gray pinstripe skinny jeans and a black, gray and white knit infinity scarf and I really loved it. Today was a catch up day where I took blog photos, did laundry, picked up around the house and had a big girl night out to see the Wildlights at the Columbus Zoo.

This outfit was perfect for all of those activities as it was comfy and stylish and even though it wasn’t an issue it would have hidden stains courtesy of my kids quite well.

Give Happy with OshKosh B’gosh this Holiday Season #GiveHappy

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for OshKosh B’gosh. I received an OshKosh B’gosh gift card to purchase product and to thank me for my participation.

oshkosh give happy

 

The holidays are a time full of happiness and one of the things that makes me happy during the holidays is giving to others. I love finding that perfect gift to give someone I love, the gift that says you matter and I thought of what you would want. I also love giving to those in need and it is something that I am striving to instill in my daughters too. We always adopt kids from the Christmas tree at church and this year we are helping adopt a local family in need as well.  OshKosh B’gosh wants everyone to give happy this holiday and one way I am giving happy to you is an OshKosh B’gosh coupon for 25% off so you can save when you purchase adorable clothes for your little cuties.

 

oshkosh coupons

 

BettertoGive-600

 

OshKosh B’gosh has the cutest outfits out right now for both boys and girls, I of course loved all the girl stuff. The minute I walked in the door I saw on a mannequin the outfit with the Super Star hot pink tee, Fair Isle navy cardigan and houndstooth skinny cords and I knew I had to have it for my daughter. I never would have put that outfit together but I really love it and so does she, I want those cords and that sweater for myself!

 

oshkosh sisters

 

oshkosh glitter

 

On my oldest is the best shawl collar shimmer sweater, I really wish I could wear kids sizes that sweater is fabulous! Fortunately my daughter realizes what a great sweater it is and has been wearing it non-stop. We paired that great sweater with the fun tee Glitter Makes Me Happy and the extra glittery glitter jeggings.

 

oshkosh rockstar

 

 

oshkosh camo pants

 

One of my girls is tall for her age yet very, very thin and that makes buying clothes very difficult. Clothes shopping for her has become really, really stressful because if things don’t fit properly she gets distressed and who can blame her I am not happy if my pants are drooping or the sleeves too long. The vast selection of tunics and leggings that greet you as you walk in the door of OshKosh B’gosh are perfect for her. The extra length in the tops and the tighter fit in the leggings mean everyone is happy and she feels like a rockstar, just one more way to give happy to my girls! How cute is she in her TLC Polka Dot Tunic and the TLC Leggings in shimmer camo print.

 

oshkosh happy hug

 

OshKosh B’gosh is  favorite retailer of mine as the clothes are not only adorable but they are well made and last the test of time meaning that fabulous sweater and glitter jeggings on my oldest will still be going strong with girl number 5 wears it, that is getting your moneys worth for sure. And I know that I can always find age appropriate clothes at OshKosh B’gosh, so for use OshKosh B’gosh is a place of happiness when it comes to clothes shopping.

It’s easy to #GIVEHAPPY, and even the smallest acts of kindness can help brighten someone’s day! What are some ways you’re planning to #GIVEHAPPY this holiday season?

Stylish Thanksgiving Day Outfits from Kohl’s

kohls red sweater dress

 

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and everyone needs the perfect outfit, I headed to Kohl’s and found two fabulous outfits both perfect for Thanksgiving Day. The first outfit is a super cute sweater dress, sweater dresses are really trendy right now and Kohl’s had no shortage. I tried on 4 different sweater dresses before I settled on this one but they are all super cute. Here are several other sweater dress options from Kohl’s for you to check out. I love how sweater dresses are so forgiving, the thicker material can offer a fitted look without the clingy-ness of other dresses and they are very versatile too. Wear them with heels, boots or flats, tights or leggings.

Stylish sweater dresses from Kohl's

WHAT I WORE:

 

Have you seen all the midi skirts and scuba skirts? Scuba skirts are really trendy right now and I have been loving them on others so I gave this cute scuba skirt a try. I love how long the midi length is, no chance of the kids lifting your skirt, and the vintage nostalgia it emits is something I am loving right now. I initially planned on belting the sweater with the skirt but found I much preferred it tucked in showing off the full scuba skirt. Add some glamorous jewelry and you have an elegant look for Thanksgiving Day.

WHAT I WORE:

So what do you think are you loving sweater dresses as much as I am? How about the midi scuba skirt, are you tempted to try one out? Head to Kohl’s this holiday season for fashion and style on a budget!

Product was provided for feature, all opinions are my own.

Holiday picks from P.S. from Aeropostale


Yes I said pretween you know those 8/9 year olds who are not quite tweens or even preteens yet aren’t little anymore. I feel like this is such a tricky age to dress as I am in no hurry to rush my daughter into her teenage years yet I understand her need to not feel like she matches her 5 year old sister. This is where PS from Aeropostale comes in they offer stylish, age appropriate clothing that both mom and pretween can love, in fact this is my daughters new favorite store.  Just take a look at these 3 trendy, stylish, modest and age appropriate outfits my daughter picked out, they are all super cute and perfect for her allowing her to express who she is right now with these fun outfits from PS from Aeropostale.

WHAT SHE WORE:

Each of these outfits is adorable and fits her personality perfectly. P.S.from Aeropostale also offers longer layering tanks which has helped me engage my daughter in a great discussion about respecting her body and making sure she is dressed appropriately. I am so proud of this girl and how strong, kind and loving she is and I am so glad she has found a brand that helps her express who she is. I am a firm believer that clothing is how we express ourselves, it sends a message to the world and both of us can support the message she is sending these days.

What I Wore Real Mom Style: Legwarmers #RealMomStyle

legwarmers and booties

 

Yep that’s right bring back the 80’s with leg warmers!  Seriously though leg warmers are a super cute way to add some fun to your leggings and for me to make me feel more comfortable in leggings. I love the comfort of leggings but they make me really, really self conscious so I only wear them if my top covers my rear and I prefer to wear boots that way the minimal amount is showing, weird I know but hey that’s me. So leg warmers are another way I find that I can embrace leggings. I can wear cute booties add some fun leg warmers and voila super cute! So yesterday I went to Kohl’s to get some leg warmers as I heard the Simply Vera Vera Wang collection had some cute ones and of course I ended up with a whole new outfit that I love. I photographed it yesterday and am wearing it today as I type!

WHAT I WORE:

Would you wear leg warmers? I also styled them with tights and a sweater dress so stay tuned for that look later this week.
