Remember around Valentines Day how I said I was an ambassador for Columbia Center Mall? I never really dove into that much more but what you will be seeing is a few blog posts a year featuring things going on at Columbia Center Mall AND usually a giveaway. So I have another amazing opportunity for you guys this Easter. I know it seems really early to be talking about the Easter Bunny and Easter fashion but with Easter so early this year it really isn't. So with that being said I have a big blog post in store for you and another amazing giveaway valued at $150!
Well once again we are in the dreaded season where it is still winter but we are SO OVER the clothes. So instead of having another winter sweater outfit I figured I'd go over some athleisure staples in my closet. I am one of those girls who actually enjoys getting dressed everyday but there are some days when all I can do is just throw some leggings and a cute t-shirt on. So that post is dedicated to those days.
Ok I may be getting ahead of myself as the temperatures have been so freaking cold here! We have had a really mild winter and I think it's getting the last laugh by deciding to show us that winter is still here. The other morning when I woke up it was 15 degrees yeah nope! Well I'm ready to shed the sweaters and start wearing some lightweight spring jackets. I think that is my favorite part about spring all the spring jacket options. I saw this water repellent pink jacket at Zara a few weeks ago and I wanted it to come home with me.
I am so excited that for 2018 I have teamed up with Columbia Center Mall to become their official ambassador! Over the next year I have a quite a few different blog post coming featuring all the things going on locally. For my first post of the year I'm here to talk about Valentine's Day and an amazing giveaway you will want to enter if you live locally (Tri-Cities Area)! So for this post I asked my fellow SAHM Erin to head to the mall with me during the week to pick out new Valentine's Day outfits.
Hi guys! Last week was my birthday and I decided to take a few days off of blogging and enjoy some travel. My Husband and I headed to Seattle to enjoy some time together doing city things. Then I headed this weekend to Spokane with a girlfriend for the Miranda Lambert concert. It was such a fun week celebrating and now I'm finally home for a week or two. I hate however how my house gets going from one trip to the next. It needs some Valentines Day TLC. I wanted to put a little post together in preparation for Valentines day. I will have another fun Galentines Day post on Friday so for this post I'll stick to some Valentines gifts for you man and also some casual Valentines day clothes.
This is a little bit of an untraditional post for me as far as fashion goes. I don't work anymore but over the years there has been many cases where I've needed a pair of black dress pants. I had been surviving on a pair I had from my old job back in 2011. Oh jeez 7 year old dress pants. Well I finally decided to buy a new pair. After trying on a million different ones (sorry UPS man) I finally found a pair. I also asked a few of my working friends to share their favorite dress pants so we could put together a good list for you all to try.... here they are!
Hot pink in January? I mean I say why the heck not when this week we were in the 50's all week. Leo and I spent most of the week outside, such a nice departure from last years snowy winter. Plus with the terrible flu going around this year I much rather go play outside than take a chance playing at indoor places in town. I picked up this pink sweater in the fall and having been dying to wear it this winter. I know it is a little bold but hey I am never afraid of a little color.
Oh man we are in full winter season. I feel like I struggle every winter on how to layer property. My husband gets so mad at me cause I never wear a coat because I can't fit all my heavy sweaters and layers under a coat. Or I do put a sweater on with a coat it is just too darn hot I end up carrying my coat around the entire time. Basically I need a coat check everywhere I go. So mostly I never wear a jacket and instead I just tend to layer a lot in the winter. So here is how I layer in the winter without looking like I weigh 700 lbs.
Just like last week when I blogged about sprucing up your Christmas dress attire, this is the same idea! Time to talk about sprucing up your NYE attire. I'll be 32 in a month and I think I retired all the sequins in my closet years ago. But nothing like the New Year approaching do those sequins look oh so tempting. So this is my take on how to wear sequins in a more conservative way.
OMG this is such an adult dress. Adulting has it's downfalls but it also has it perks, like trading in the youthful dresses for some chic and classic looks. And there is nothing more classic than this dress. And if your like me it might be time to upgrade your little black dress selection. I hardly wear dresses so the ones I did have were more Vegas and less 30ish, if you know what I mean. None the less I found this little number for $100 at Nordstrom and I am digging the midi cut!
