I love that high waisted jeans are back in style, but with a modern silhouette that makes them totally not like your mama’s jeans she wore in the 80’s. They are super sophisticated and polished, and you can pair them with anything. I like wearing mine with a cropped crochet shirt and a printed boot to add texture and depth to my flare denim. Say bye-bye to your low cut jeans and make friends with a higher waist.
Grey is not a typical color that most associate with happiness. For me however, it makes me smile because it is the perfect neutral base for any outfit. I find myself gravitating toward more grey than ever before. Pair this dull shade with black and it’s chic, brown and it’s earthy, navy and it has a cool vibe. I also love wearing different hues of grey at the same time for a more monochromatic look. A graphic tee that has a long and lean cut, paired with a shrunken motorcycle jacket in a different shades of grey, makes for a casual but fun outfit that I can wear running after my kids or running errands all over town. Navy corduroy flares add a different twist then typical denim, and boom! Nothing dull or moody about this ordinary color.

I love clothing with feminine details like ruffles and lace. If I can simply pull on a cozy sweater with romantic detailing and feel put together, it’s a no brainer in my book. As moms, it is easy to feel “run down” in between errands, diaper changes, and car pool duty. Getting dressed in key pieces with great detailing, that are also comfortable is a great way to feel a little more chic while being in mommy mode.
Another thing I like to do when dressing in ultra feminine pieces, is throwing in some edge. I am all about an eclectic mix of accessories and clothing to make any outfit more unique. Lately I have been pairing girly sweaters with ripped denim and studded boots. Who says you can’t have a little ballerina and rock star attitude all at once?!
