The Perfect Travel Outfit

I think I should have been 6'0". Why?  Because I have this crazy love for long cardigans, vests, sweaters, you name it, if it's down to my ankles I'm in love (which is easy to do since I'm actually only 5'0").  There's something about throwing a super long cardigan over a basic pair of leggings and a tee that is just so comfy and cozy and just plain easy.  I posted this first outfit over on my Facebook group and someone mentioned it would be the perfect airport outfit... YES.  These are easy outfits to travel in because you're super comfy but still pulled together, plus you can turn your cardi into a blanket and curl up if you get chilly.  SCORE.

The cardigan above comes in a ton of color options, I went with the basic heather gray because I was looking for the most versatile color.  I know I'm going to be buying a few more colors though because they're just plain awesome.  It's nice and lightweight so it will work for all seasons, true to size (I'm wearing a small), and a great price point.  Paired it with my favorite super soft leggings, a nice loose fit tank, and comfy black flats.  And this bag is called the "Work Tote" for a reason... you can get some serious work done with this thing!  I'm still finding new pockets in it, there are about a million, and the leather is just about the softest I've ever felt.

When I saw this Vince Camuto vest on major sale I didn't think twice.  Again.... down to my ankles and I'm in heaven.  Plus, it's Vince.  I love Vince.  Grabbed this beauty and now I can't stop wearing it.  It's one size and I will say the armholes are about down to my hips but it appears intentional and super cute... I love the peekaboo it gives.  Wearing this feels like I'm wrapped in a gorgeous blanket in the best possible way.   I'm all about it.  Paired again with those crazy soft leggings, added nude pumps to dress it up a bit, hung on to my awesome "Work Tote" and added a basic sweater turtleneck underneath.  Easy Peasy.  I'm ready to travel... someone take me somewhere fun!

Rain Rain Go Away

How did we go from single digit temps to 60 degrees over night?!  I don't know but I'll take it.  It's a slushy, muddy mess around here with all the melted snow and wet weather, but it gives me the perfect excuse to wear this rain jacket, so I can't complain.  No lie, I never thought I could fall head over heels for a rain coat but it just happened.  This Columbia rain jacket has it all... great length, longer in the back then the front, option to cinch the waist, attached hood, comes in lots of great colors (I'm wearing "pulse" which is an awesome shade of purple/gray with a pale purple interior), and is currently on sale.  Let me know in the comments if you grab one and what color you get!

And you see those boots?!  They were a Christmas gift from the hubs... I pretty much dropped hints on the daily ;)  Girls, yes, they are pricey, but they are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.  I'm obsessed.  They hold their own in the cold, but aren't full on snow boots so you can wear them longer than just frigid winter weather.  Seriously awesome and so many great colors.

Happy Fri-yay all!  Hope your weekend is a great one!

Dress Like You're Going Somewhere...

top (true to size) // jeans (if in between sizes, size down) petites  // pumps (similar) // bag // bracelet (similar)
I've had several stay-at-home moms and work-at-home moms tell me recently that they want to get out of their yoga pants and wear something that makes them feel more put together, but sometimes they just have no where to go.  I get it mamas.  I feel you.  I AM YOU.  After my kids were first born I can't tell you how many times the hubs would call to say he was on his way home from work and I'd realize I was still in sweats (or worse, still in my pjs) and I'd run upstairs and throw a pair of jeans and a nice tee on just to look somewhat presentable.  It's hard.  I get it.  It took until my oldest started going to preschool that I decided I needed to get back to dressing in a way that made me feel more like me again.  Don't get me wrong I was plenty happy in my sweats, but when you dress good you feel good.  Truth.

Question: But what do you do when you want to dress nice but you just have no where to go?
Answer: Dress like you're going somewhere better later.

This mantra CHANGED the way I dress.  There are still plenty of days when I wear sweats, but now there are also plenty of days where I wear pumps to the grocery store, because hey, sometimes that's the outing of the day for a SAHM or WAHM.  Plus... I'm going somewhere better later.

So what's one of my favorite things to wear as a SAHM?  Mom jeans.  No, I'm not lying.  Mom jeans have changed ladies.  They've totally changed and they're completely and ridiculously amazing.  These jeans I'm wearing in this post... high waisted, tummy controlled, flat panel, pull on jeans.  They are the most inanely comfortable pair of jeans I own.  And no, they're not really just for moms, anyone can rock these babies (pun intended, get it?)  Grab a pair, dress em up, and act like you're going somewhere better later.

If it looks like I'm crazy excited about this wallet/clutch in the pic above, that's because I am!  I waited forever for this to go back on sale... it just came and it was worth the wait.  So many card slots!

Cardigan Craze

It's no secret, cardigans are part of my every day uniform in the colder months.  They're just so easy to throw on with a pair of jeans a basic tee and a cute necklace and you're set.   I usually post all my best finds over on my Facebook group first so some of the colors have already sold out, but all are still available as of the time I posted this.   If you want first dibs at all the outfits I share, definitely come join us over on FB at Name Brands for Less! Women's Clothing and Accessories We have a lot of fun over there!  Ok, on to the goods and all the details complete with affiliate links if you want to grab the look!

First up, a cardigan with ruffles!  I love ruffles and I love cardigans... this one was made for me. Runs true to size, is nice and soft and extremely flattering.  3 colors remaining.  I paired it with my super fun chunky pearl necklace that's actually a choker but I added some length to it by adding some cream color ribbon to the back to give it some length.

This cardigan popped up as a Lightning deal and I took a chance.  I was pleasantly surprised at how cute this is!  Every time I wear it I get compliments.  It's a unique cut and the fabric is almost like a super soft legging material.  Several girls on Name Brands for Less got this one in black and it's equally as cute (even cuter when paired with black and white stripes underneath!)

This cardigan has a HOOD.  Do I really need to say anything else?!  I love hooded cardigans!  After I posted this in my facebook group this color sold out crazy quick and hasn't been back in stock since; however, it comes in a ton of solid colors and they're all super cute.  This is a nice lighter weight cardigan and the length is amazing.  My favorite tee that I paired it with is currently sold out in the crew neck but is still available in the vneck.  They're true to size and crazy soft!

My favorite long cardigan (that's super similar to the long cardigan in the pop-up-shop brand).  This cardigan runs a bit small, consider sizing up.  I love the pockets on this one!

Last but not least, I have a new love for Jason Maxwell cardigans.  They are true to size, well made, super comfy, and are very similar in style to some of the Stitch Fix cardigans that I've been swooning over lately.  It's nice and thick and chunky and warm and I'm crazy about it.  While you're at it you need to check out all the other cardigans in this line, they're great! Stock up friends!

So there it is, 5 super awesome cardigans that I'm loving right now.  Go grab yourself one (or all)  and be sure to join us over on Name Brands for Less! Women's Clothing and Accessories for all the best finds!
