Styling a Swingy Tunic Top for Spring

This spring tunic top fashion post includes affiliate links. Want to promote fun, affordable fashions too? Join Cents of Style today!

Spring isn’t totally here yet, but it’s peeking around the corner. We’re still having more rain than shine here in the PNW, but we’re finally seeing some sunshine here and there! Which totally puts me in the mood to freshen up my wardrobe. I do tend to wear mostly black, white, grey, and very dark grey. But as spring arrives, I like lighter fabrics, swingy layers, bright accessories. Something about spring just makes you want to be pretty, doesn’t it?

This week’s Fashion Friday story from Cents of Style is all about the swingy spring tunics! They have two styles available, both on sale, both total must-haves right now. Just like every other piece I love from Cents of Style, these are made to fit every single body type – they come in sizes 0-18, lots of pretty colors, and you can choose from a babydoll or keyhole style in this sale. Or both, that’s what I would do :) [Read more…]

10 Fun Fashion Pieces with Pockets!

This post contains affiliate links.

When it comes to fashion, I’m all about comfort. Even when dolled up, things MUST be comfy. There’s only one time I’ve ever purchased a pair of shoes that weren’t comfortable – and they did NOT last. Tossed ’em the first time I wore them to work, back in my 20’s when I worked at Macy’s. Left them in the break room with a “free, take me” sign, and bought a pair of flats to finish the day. I’ve been known to ditch a pair of ill-fitting undies too, and go without for the rest of the night. You can’t look good if you don’t feel good – at least I can’t. So, with all of that said, I’m sure it’s no surprise that I am a total junkie for fashion with pockets. All the pockets.

I’m a Hot Mess Mom, What Are You?

This Fashion Friday post is a partnership with Cents of Style – Join Cents of Style Affiliate Program – I received a complimentary tee, post contains affiliate links.

You guys. I still owe ya’all a post of explanation, of where I was for all of 2016. Life-changing health diagnosis, heart-breaking break up with my daughter’s dad, huge budget-tightening with not working = tough times. I’m a strong cookie though, and am bouncing back, slowly. Mommin’ is a tough gig on the best of days, and in my days now there’s so much adjustment trying to balance new changes and challenges. So, yes, I’m a hot mess. A hot mess mom. And I’m not a bit ashamed about that.

That photo pretty much sums it up, lol. The look on my face, trying, again, to take selfies with this giant iPad because I’m too broke to upgrade to a new phone with internet access. And, that cheap phone? You can see it. In my shirt, tucked into my bra. Because I had leggings on, no pockets, and totally forgot that it was in there. When I said I’m a hot mess I wasn’t kidding you guys. :) Trying to find one.small.space to with a clean background, as we’re working on remodeling, reorganizing, and redecorating the whole house – on an incredibly teensy budget. If you look closely {but please don’t} you’ll see many new silvery streaks trying to invade my brown hair. And my shirt – Hot Mess, Just doing my best. That’s me. [Read more…]

Thankful for Food, Family, and FASHION!

I’ve partnered with Cents of Style for this #FashionFriday post – join their program today – and received this tee to style for ya today! Affiliate links in post.

This year has been, hands down, the absolute hardest year I’ve ever been through in my life. A break-up with Abby’s dad after 11 years together. Major life-changing health stuff. And all of the financial, personal, organizational, etc issues that go along with those things. Sigh. But, things are calming down – the waves have stopped crashing, and my boat is finally steadying itself a bit.

Fall leaves and sunshine in the PNW

This year has taught me that life is more unpredictable than you can imagine. That the world hands out heartbreak easily – like tossing candy in a parade. That time is short and never guaranteed – your own, and the time you get with those you love. So I have grown quite impatient with the bullshittery, and worrying what others think (which I’ve always let bother me too much.) My plan now is to seek happiness wherever I can, hold it tightly when I find it, and give no worry to what others think about things. And in this month of giving thanks, I’m definitely counting my blessings every darn day, grateful to still be here :)

The Perfect Boots for Fall

I was compensated to create this post as part of the Earth Footwear #WalkYourWorld Campaign. The opinions are my own and based on my own experience, as always.

Ah…. Fall. Here in central Washington, fall is fully upon us. My neighborhood is filled with a ton of different types of trees, so the colors of all of the different changing leaves is just gorgeous. The air is crisp enough for sweaters and hoodies, but there’s still usually enough sunshine that all of my fall flowers in the gardens are still blooming. The wineries are gorgeous this time of year, and since central Washington is the apple capital of the world, it’s a wonderful time to visit the farmer’s markets for fresh produce. This is my favorite time of year. And when it comes to fall fashion, my very favorite change from summer is getting new fall boots!

Fashion Friday: Special Flash Sale Event!!

Who loves fashion? No, I don’t mean, “NYC Fashion Week, totally unrelatable to real-life fashion.” Stuff that real women wear. As a work at home mom, one of the best things that ever happened to me was when leggings became cool again. They’re like, sweatpants trendier cousin. You still get an elastic waistband for comfort, but they’re more acceptable in public. Same with yoga pants. I LIVE in stretch pants, long tanks or tunics, and cardigans. With lots of fun, funky accessories. Because even the simplest outfit can be worn a few times a week {come on, you know you’ve done it, lol} when you change up your accessories. And when they’re crazy-amazingly affordable, {I call that cramazingly….} it’s even better. So check out the flash deals available ONLY tomorrow, from one of my fave sites, Cents of Style.

Cents of Style Flash Friday

Starting tomorrow this morning, right now, there’s a HUGE flash sale on all of the awesome accessories at Cents of Style. There’s a new flash sale every few hours, or until they sell out. Plus, keep reading, because there’s a BONUS gift with purchase too! [Read more…]
