Fashion Challenge

The Follow Are A Collection of Posts Dedicated to Tackling Some of the Biggest Fashion Challenges:
Today marks the first segment in our Fashion Friday Challenge where we tackle some of your burning fashion topics. Today’s topic is how to remain stylish as a busy mom. This topic is near and dear to my heart because at one time I was the mother of twin toddlers (they are now 13) and it was all I could do to remember to brush my hair when the time came to hit the road. Lucky for me I found a few simple pieces that mixed and matched well so that I could be ready for any occasion at a moments notice.
Start with the Basics
If your basics are not right, style will never come. Invest in a minimal amount of bottoms as those will be the least memorable item in your wardrobe so they can be recycled in other looks. Choose a black trouser, a dark washed trouser jean, a grey and khaki slack for dressy occasions. Then, choose a chino style khaki pant, a skinny jean in a dark washed denim and black and a casual denim capri as the foundation of your wardrobe. Look for fabrics that wash well and are wrinkle free whenever possible. The less time spent ironing, the better. Choose one piece with interesting detail, in this collection that piece is the cream top with the tie at the waist. It is an excellent alternative to a plain top.

How to ShopIn the second edition of our fashion challenge series we will be tackling the feeling that some people get as they enter the department store. Achieving fashion forward style can be an overwhelming feat to tackle if shopping does not qualify as your sport of choice. There are however some tips and tricks that if followed will help calm those feelings of anxiety that creep in as you pull into a department store parking lot.

Begin with an Edit: It is the Key To Focus

Before you can be prepared to hit the sale racks at your local department store, you must first determine what it is that you need to purchase. Determining what you need comes only after you have made an honest assessment about what works in your current wardrobe. If you have not worn a piece in the most recent season, you do not need that piece as part of your collection.

Mastering the Mall

Welcome to the third post in our series about tackling some of the biggest fashion challenges life has to offer. Our first two posts centered around how to remain stylish as a mom on the go and how to master the mall. This week we tackle how to identify if a trend is right for you. This is a touchy subject around my house because I have a set of thirteen year old twins who like to offer their opinion/advice on what I wear. In this case, unsolicited advice is not always the best advice ever given. For the most part that means that I let most of what they have to say go in one ear and out of the other.  Some of these conversations though beg the question of how do you know if a trend is right for you? The pin featured below is an example of a trend that I am completely in love with: color blocking… but again how do you know if this trend is right for you?

In the latest edition our Fashion Friday Challenge we tackle the touchy subject of creating a flattering wardrobe.  The first point that we need to get out of the way is that no matter what your shape or size is, you can still create a flattering wardrobe. Part of your wardrobe journey has to involve embracing who you are. No one is perfect, so your own appeal first centers around knowing that you are who you are for a reason. Embrace that and that confidence will automatically translate into fashion forward style.  Once you embrace who you are, the next steps to creating a flattering wardrobe revolves around several key style selections.  In previous posts we tackled the styles and colors that are must haves. Today we will tackle the specific pieces and characteristics that create a flattering wardrobe.

  1. Gosh, I need to remember the mastering the mall bit. I have a weakness whenever I’m at the mall, if I stayed far too long at shop fitting clothes, I’d be ashamed not to be anything, so I end up buying something random. I’m hopeless!
