Style Series Recap & Giveaway

Thursday, June 27, 2013

Is June really almost over?!  It's been wonderful collaborating with Kristen, Chelsea, and Ashley.  Each week we showcased a different summer trend.  Here's a recap from the past month, along with a fashion tip from each of us.

This might seem silly, but my fashion tip is to make sure that your clothes (bras included) fit properly. (Duh, right?!)  But for the longest time, like up until about a year ago, I was wearing clothes that were 1-2 sizes too big for me.  It's important to know your body type, to know what types of clothes and fabrics flatter you, and to totally work them!  Take a friend with you shopping, ask a sales clerk their advice/opinion, and search blogs/Pinterest to understand what types of clothes you like and to get feedback on what types of clothes work best for you!

In terms of personal style, my hard and fast rule I live by is to accessorize.  I know that might be a no-brainer for most, but even if I'm running to the grocery store, I'll still throw on a hat or something that adds a little interest to my look....even if that look IS pretty casual. For one, you'll feel better about yourself....and two, you just never know who you'll run in to.

My motto when it comes to style is to have fun and wear what makes you feel good.  If you do that your confidence shines through and you can pull off any look.  And also, never say never!

Fashion for me is trying new items that not everyone is wearing. It's fun to go with the trends but its also fun to start your own. Explore fashion and enjoy it. You will never influence the world by trying to be like it.

And now, we have a great giveaway for you.

1 lucky reader will win a $50 gift card to the store of their choice!  We want you to go out and treat yourself this summer, so you name it...Target, Old Navy, ASOS, Starbucks,'s yours!  

And 1 reader (that's right, 2 winners!) will win $50 to Sticky Grams.  We're obsessed with these things, and what a great way to capture your summer memories (or any season's memories!).  Sticky Grams takes your Instagram photos and turns them in to magnets.  So much fun.

2 winners.  2 amazing prizes!

Just use the Rafflecopter below to enter.

The giveaway will be open until next Sunday, July 7th.  The winner will be notified through email.


Summer Style Series Week 4

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Today is our last June Style Series. It's been fun working with Ashley, Chelsea and Kristen. This week we are showing how we wear florals. I love wearing florals. I'm up for pretty much anything with fashion. It's fun trying out new trends. What do you think about the floral trend?

Summer Series Week 3

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

Today is week 3 for "How Do You Wear It?". This week is how we wear shorts. I have to admit I have never been a big shorts fan. I would much rather wear rolled up pants in the summer.  But seeing how Ashley, Chelsea, and Kristen wear their shorts they really pull it off! They look darling.

I also wanted to let you all know about another fun piece I recently received from VeryJane.  It's a name plate that you can see in my pics below.  I just love it!  They have such fun and unique items all the time and such a great price.  I get excited to see what new items they have each day.

Hello gorgeous "stylin mommies!" My name is Kendall and I am a wife to my best friend, Terry, and a mother to a tiny, beautiful one year old, Kenleigh Reese, who definitely keeps us running! I'm also the marketing/office manager at a real estate company in the small town of Zebulon, Georgia. Life is crazy hectic most of the time between working full time, being a mother and wife, and running here and there and EVERYWHERE! But, I love this thing called life and I love sharing it with my precious family!

I just recently got into sewing and embroidering and it has become my extra hobby (when time allows.) It's so freeing to know that I can create what other moms are paying so much money for! I love the feeling that I can save us money and still have my darling daughter and myself decked out in the latest trends!

Speaking of saving money, it is so hard to stay up to date with the greatest fashion trends and still stay within our family's budget (which is hardly anything, these days!) But, I've found that if you keep a few key pieces in your wardrobe, you can dress it up or down and add and take away accessories,and it's like having new outfits all the time! And a word of advice, never pay full price for anything! Everything goes on sale, eventually!

Here, I'm wearing my "go to" favorite skinny jeans, which you can find me wearing most of the time! It's so easy to go from working mom to running mom in these stretchy and comfortable jeans! I added my favorite blouse (I splurged on this one for my daughters 1st birthday party) to dress it up a bit, threw on my favorite flip flops and was good to go all day long at work and at home!

Thanks for having me Jamie! I love your blog! I think it's great that we mommies stick together to stay fashionable while not breaking the bank! XOXO!

For this week for our June style series the topic this week is "Summer Hats". I love a good baseball hat. This one is definitely a little more girly ball hat and I love it! It's my go to casual look for summer especially because we have been doing a lot of home reno stuff the last couple of weeks. Not so much hair doing going on over here.  I love how the others styled their choice of hats too. So cute!! What are some of your favorite hats for the summer!?

Hi, I'm Elizabeth, a 27 year old stay at home mom to my adorable 5 month old daughter, Lucy. I have always loved fashion & would describe myself as a shopaholic, but transitioning from working full-time to staying at home definitely required an adjustment in my wardrobe. Goodbye pencil skirts & trousers, hello leggings & skinny jeans. Now that the weather is finally warming up I am loving the chance to wear shorts, maxi dresses & sandals! Trying to stay comfortable for the day, while also feeling good can be tricky. I try to mix up my outfits by adding a statement necklace, scarf, or some extra color. I also recently started my own blog to document my new stay-at-home mom style adventures:

Top: Nordstrom
Tank: Target
Skirt: H&M
Sandals: Banana Republic
Monogram Necklace: Tiny Tulip
Bubble Necklace: Simple Addiction
Watch & Bangle: Marc Jacobs via Bloomingdales


Lauren from New Zealand

Friday, June 07, 2013

Hi, my name is Lauren and I am from a little country called New Zealand. I have two sons aged 3 years and 10 months, and I am currently a Stay At Home Mum. You can read all about our adventures at

I am still breastfeeding so trying to look stylish whilst being easily accessible has been a bit of a struggle! I find that I am a lot more aware of my clothing after losing 55lbs, so I am getting into fashion and making an effort with how I look. Even if I am just at home with my boys all day, when I feel put together I am more confident and happy.

We are moving into winter here, so layering is a great way to add interest to my wardrobe. Skinny jeans and suede boots are great for the days when I am running around after my two boys outside! These boots are so comfortable for walking to the park, going to the supermarket or shopping at the mall. I also like I can have the fur showing or tucked away, it's like having two pairs of boots in one! My skinny jeans take me anywhere during the day and I like to accessorise black with fun jewelry.
