I’ve always loved the street chic style. But I’ve always been afraid to rock it, especially now that I’m a mom. There’s just something about street chic style that’s a little risqué, a little dangerous and a lot of fun!
So when I found THIS cute top at Romwe, I thought this would be the perfect top to try an edgier look. It’s not too short, not too tight, but fit just right. Just enough “street” and just enough “chic” that I would feel less like a “street walker” and more “street chic.” As a mom, I find it harder to dress edgier, or what I like to call “scene.” haha. But when you find the perfect pieces to mix together to get that perfect street chic style, you have to run with it!
The key is to find modest pieces, but pieces that have a little flare. Like THIS shirt, which came right to my belt line, but definitely not a midriff. And lets talk about my pants. These are probably my favorite. Even though they are faux leather, which you think you wouldn’t wear a lot..wrong. I wear them ALL THE TIME! They go with just about everything. These are from a few years ago, but I’m going to be linking similar ones below.
I love finding edgy and trendy clothing at Romwe. They have extremely affordable clothing that’s always on trend, but most importantly it’s great quality. Sometimes fast fashion although inexpensive, sacrifices the quality. Not Romwe, that’s why I highly suggest checking out what they’ve got, especially when it comes to trendy seasonal clothing.
So if you’re daring enough to try street chic style here are 5 tips to help you pull it off with a mom bod!
Stay modest, but choose edgy pieces: mix everyday functional pieces with one fun/edgy piece of clothing.
Think leather, lace and dark colors
Strappy heels are a must
Chokers or other fun bold statement jewelry
The look: be confident and walk like you own it. Just be careful walking into the street to get picture lol… that can be dangerous!
How do you incorporate street chic style into your wardrobe?
Even though it’s January stores are already starting to switch out their inventory. So if you want some deals on winter items now is the time to snag em’! I’ve really been trying to brighten up my wardrobe lately. I tend to wear a lot of browns, blacks and grays. So this year I’m going to start incorporating brighter colors. So, with that being said, I’ve been on a mission to find some cute pink sweaters that I can wear the rest of this season as well as next winter.
Scott and I went shopping yesterday, just the two of us. It was so nice to not have to haul the kids around and hear them whine because they were bored while we were taking our sweet time looking at whatever we wanted to look at! So needless to say, I stocked up on some really cute winter items that were on sale! And most of them happened to be PINK!
Do ya’ll usually stock up on the end of season sales for the next season?
Winter pastels are always a staple in my closet! I love bringing a little spring into the drab months of winter, especially after Christmas. It’s refreshing to see some brighter, more colorful items in my closet, especially after all the darker colored clothing that seem to haunt my wardrobe during fall and winter! I know we’re only into the second week of January, but I’m already getting my Valentines outfit ready, which I’ll be sharing later this month. As well as getting the spring fever itch! So I’ve put together a list of beautiful pastel items to brighten up your winter blues.
Jewelry Box: What a cute little jewelry case. This would also make a perfect travel case for your jewelry. I’m also thinking a great Valentines gift!
Stone Ring: Love this pave style stone ring. It’s the perfect color to make a statement, but not look too over-the-top!
Floral Tote: This is on my birthday wish list. Which is the day after valentines. I LOVE this tote, it’s so feminine!
Stone Earrings: I prefer stud earrings and these are perfect! I’d wear them in any season and they too are very feminine and don’t look like costume jewelry.
Light Pink Flats: As a mom, flats are just the most practical type of shoe. These are so neutral they can go with just about any outfit! And they’re only $68!
Tassel Charger/Keychain: Talk about convenient. A keychain and iPhone charger all in one! This would be another great gift!
Pink Leopard Sweater: It’s on sale for $44!! It can be style so many ways. Ya’ll know I love my leopard, but since this is pink, it feels less like a fall piece! hint.hint (Valentines outfit)
Crystal Bib Necklace: What a gorgeous statement necklace. I love the neutral colors so can be worn with so many outfits. This would be so cute over a chambray shirt and cute skirt!
Essie Polish: This color is called “fashion playground” very fitting for a fashion blog right? I love this color, it’s the perfect pastel!
New year, new you! The time is here and we are all thinking about our New Years resolutions. There are several things on my list. To name a few, continue to grow deeper in my relationship with The Lord, spend more time with my family, devote more time to my blog and last, but definitely not least… GET INTO SHAPE!
Most of you don’t know this, but I’m a certified personal trainer and use to compete in body building competitions. That was back in my hay day of course…. aka, before kids. But I’m determined to get back into shape!
With that being said, I’ve been on the hunt for affordable workout clothes. When looking for workout clothes the two most important things that I look for are comfort and affordability. I love finding cute, affordable workout clothes, that’s not only fit my body, but fit my budget as well!
On my recent grocery trip to Wal-Mart I decided to go check out their workout clothes. To my surprise, they had some super cute stuff at really affordable prices. I’m really excited to share with you guys the affordable workout clothes I found!! Nothing was over $15! My shoes are from the Nike Outlet! They are soo comfy and perfect for working out, running or just trotting around town in! They are super lightweight and the material is very breathable with I like!
Target and Old Navy are also having some great sales right now on activewear! Target it BOGO 50% off and all of Old Navy’s activewear is up to 50%off!! I’ll link some great finds below!
I don’t always wear make-up, but when I do, these are what I wear!
1.They’re Real Push Up Liner: I love this eye liner. It’s so easy to apply and most importantly it DOESN’T come off! I hate when I’m wearing an eyeliner that smudges at the slightest touch.
2.Benetint: I love the look of this on both my lips and cheeks. It gives a gorgeous rosy color without being “too much.” I also love the fact that it literally last FOREVER! A little goes a long way!
3.bareMinerals Bareskin: This foundation goes on so smooth. It gives a flawless coverage, without looking too heavy. The perfecting face brush with the little hole in the middle is on point. That’s where you put the foundation. It’s easy to use, apply, and makes short work of putting on foundation!
4. They’re Real Mascara: I love mascara. It’s something that I use even if I’m not wearing any other make-up. It’s amazing what a little mascara and lip gloss can make you feel like! ( A human) lol This mascara goes on easily without any clumps or flakes. The best thing is that it last all day long and doesn’t end up under neath your eye giving you those ugly raccoon eyes!
5.Watt’s Up: Talk about glowing! This stuff it perfect for finishing your look off with a dewy or glowing look. I especially love using this in the spring and summer.
6.bareMinerals BarePro: I use this over my bareMinerals Bareskin foundation. It gives the perfect matte look and last all day long. This is also perfect to wear alone if you just want to get a quick light coverage.
7.Smashbox Lipstick: These shades are on point. They last several hours and go on a smooth and creamy!
8.Covergirl trunaked nudes Eyeshadow: The perfect palette of nude eyeshadows. They go on smooth, last all day and best of all are less than $15! I love that I have all the shadows I use in one place, which is especially great when I’m traveling.
What are your favorite make-up must have’s lately?
