For the last two years I have really dropped the ball when it comes to keeping my look up to date. There were two main reasons:
1.) My body had changed and I wasn't really sure what to do with that
2.) I'm at work during boutique shopping hours and taking my girls to 'try on' at any store is just out of the question.
This, ladies, is how the term 'mom' jeans evolved. Mom's were not wearing out of date jeans because they didn't know better, they started when their pleated jeans were actually trendy. Then...they lost track of time, their bodies changed, and their priorities were no longer getting to the mall to get new jeans...so a decade later they found themselves wearing those same out of date jeans.
I decided this isn't going to happen to me. I also realized after talking amongst friends that I wasn't the only one who had put fashion second to life. So as a result, my partnership with Too Blue Boutique was created. Here's how it works: Once a month I visit the darling boutique, pick out an outfit or two that will keep me up to date and then I share my picks with you.
Here's the best part. You don't have to drive there, while Too Blue is a small town, unique boutique they offer the ability to purchase online. And the owner? She's a momtrepreneur and it's always fun to support someone living their dream.
So here they are, my June picks!!!
Must Have Summer Look #1: The Romper
The romper I chose is featured in the photo above. You can view an upclose picture of it if you follow the link to the site. It is bright, fun, and playful. Great for BBQ's, vacations and play dates where you don't want to be too dressed up but don't want to look like you rolled out of bed. It fits true to size, comes with built in support and has some extra fabric around the mid-section. Finally, the reason I loved this one instead of some others is because the shorts are a 'normal' length. Come on, I'm 36 and look a little ridiculous if I have SUPER short shorts on. This piece allows me to keep on point with trends, while being age/lifestyle appropriate and still super cute. Love it? The price point is right too! The link is below:
Must Have Summer Look #2: The Shift Dress
I am sooo excited about this dress!! It fits beautifully and cover's all of the area's I'm not interested in highlighting. It's timeless and fun; perfect for date night, dinner or any semi-formal gathering. It also fits true to size and is super reasonable. I have no doubt that this dress will be a 'go to' in my closet not only this year but for years to come! Love it? It's VERY reasonable for the quality and I have included the link below directly to the boutique:
I hope you love these cute summer outfits as much as I do! I will be sharing my picks from Too Blue monthly and will do my best to make sure that they seasonal current but lifestyle relevant. Hopefully, you will like a few of them, support a momtrapreneur instead of a 'big guy' and keep your closet without breaking the bank one piece at a time!
