Fall Layers

14 Oct

I have long been inspired by the style of Blair over at Atlantic-Pacific.  Her ability to mix patterns and textures is amazing.  In looking through my closet today, I was inspired to add an extra layer to my own outfit for a bit more dimension.  It was fun and finally cool enough to try it out!  What about you?  Who are you inspired by lately?  (And no, it doesn’t need to be fashion related!)  Speaking of inspiration, I also attended a fashion show at Fort Worth Running Company this week….so fun!  I’ll be posting on it next week so stay tuned!

Design Consultation: Pulled Together Mommy

13 Apr

I recently got this request from my dear friend, Emily:

Right now I am looking for easy, but pulled together, spring and summer outfits. I’d love to say I’d wear sundresses all the time, but that’s not happening. I don’t want to be too sporty, which is my tendency with apparel. Also, if I am going to wear shorts, I don’t want them too short… or to look like I am trying to hard. Easy, but pulled together mommy.”

Got it, hot mama! Emily lives in a cooler climate, so we trade being jealous of each other as the seasons change. She also sent me a link to a pair of shoes that she just bought to get me started. I looked for something that would transition easily from spring into summer, be on trend, and reflect her laid back personality. Plus, since Emily’s main concern is her super cute little boy, I went for something quick and easy without long necklaces for him to grab hold of! It doesn’t hurt that these are all items I want for summer and / or already own. I bought a skinny gold belt last winter, and it has been a great purchase! Goes with EVERYTHING! So what do you think? As hot mamas (with or without kids!) yourselves, would you pick up this outfit?
