Fostering My Jewelry Addiction with RocksBox

I will fully admit that I one hundred percent have an addiction to buying and wearing jewelry of all kind. My husband will also not hesitate to tell anyone he can that I have “too many” necklaces. What’s really too much though? I say to him to each their own. Well I now have a fun way to make both of us happy! Marriage is about compromise right?

Thank you Rocks Box for making this compromise so insanely easy!

For only $19 per month I get 3 pieces of jewelry sent to me (in the cutest little box, might I add). When I’m done playing dress up with those 3 pieces I just send them back with the prepaid shipping and wait (anxiously) for 3 new ones. How have I not done this sooner! I can buy any piece(s) that I can’t live without!

Here is my first box!

Oh and did I mention that I have a code for you to get a month for free!? And you can cancel at anytime!

Fashion Friday: Styling Your Favorite Graphic Tee

I was given these products in return for a post, however all of the opinions states are entirely my own. I do not work with brands that I don’t believe in and love. 

We’re moms, so when in doubt we all put on a T-shirt when getting dressed. Plus let’s all face it we always have that one favorite one that is washed to soft perfection, it fits just right, and in our own opinion is super cute. Chances are your favorite go-to is no ordinary t-shirt but instead a graphic tee (I know mine is). Besides the obvious jeans and t-shirt combination (which by the way never fails). There are so many fun ways to style this closet staple.

My favorite graphic tee happens to be from the fabulous Tara Lynn’s Boutique. You know how I said that our favorite is washed to perfectly soft wonderful-ness, well this one comes that way brand new. Um, score! Plus I’m a new mom so I love proudly stating my new #mamabear  (click on link for this exact tee) status.

Here are my favorite ways to style my tee.

Paired with shorts and a statement necklace.

Anyway for me to wear my most favorite jean shorts (thred up find) and still look relatively stylish is a serious win in my book.

Paired with a High Waisted Skirt

This gorgeous midi skirt (it comes in black and white too) is also another piece from Tara Lynn’s Boutique and I am in LOVE. Basically any pattern, color scheme or length would work with this basic concept. It’s a fun way to dress up this casual tee.

Summer Tank Styling Ideas

Fashion Friday

I’m back with this series! Its been a busy couple of weeks so I have missed this the last two weeks (read here more about my absence). Summer is full swing here in the Pacific Northwest and so I thought I would get back to Fashion Friday with some styling ideas for this summer staple.

I found mine pretty recently at Target, but really these outfits can be translated to your favorite sleeveless blouse that you already own. The tank I styled here is a woven material with some detailing so that it can be easily styled up or down.

First up, style it casually with denim shorts and a casual necklace. This is basically a mother’s uniform for the summer. Its super easy, super comfortable, and stylish too. You know the dream mix for us moms.

Second outfit is styled with a denim or chambray skirt (mine is also a current Target find). This look is still casual and easy but is a little dressier then just denim shorts. What I love about this outfit is its still super easy but you can do lunch or something a little nicer without putting in a ton of thought or effort.

Last outfit idea is paired with a neutral skirt with some structure. Mine is older from Loft but what I love is that the colors are very neutral and there is minimal going on. Its an A-line skirt with structure so that any top tucks well into it, especially an easy breezy summer tank.

Happy Summer Lovelies!
