I am very guilty of not wanting to wear accessories very often. At times I even forget to add jewelry to an outfit I’m planning on shooting, but of course as a mom it can be very tough trying to remember everything when you have 10 min to get ready and on top of that your toddler wants to eat (again!). But thankfully I have discovered 4 easy tricks that can save you much time when getting ready, and not even bother reaching into your jewelry box.

First: Pick a neutral bottom color such as white, beige, or even regular jeans

Second: Patterend blouses or striped shirts definitely will work

Third: Put on sandals with prints on them, or low heels with two toned colors

Fourth: Pick your favorite purse (or do rock paper scissors to decide)

Et Voila! You will have your outfit ready in no time and all you need is to throw on your shades. Easy right!?

How To Style White Culottes

Hi there! The sun seems to be shinning brighter and hotter than ever these days, which of course means we must wear cooler clothing. I don’t know if you have heard this but culottes are perfect for summer! They not only make you look like a different person (more stylish than before) but they guarantee comfiness all day long. I know I am definitely seeing much of a difference each time I decide to wear them instead of going with my everyday jeans, and it is very worth it.

Mixing culottes with flats, espadrilles, or even sandals will make your outfit pop with style. Im pretty sure culottes go with anything and I literally mean anything! You can grab your fave tee and tie a knot at the edge, or wear a loose long sleeve and you will still look like a pro in fashion. I know I am a big fan of fashion and culottes are your summer saviors!

Tropical Summer Wishlist

Hello loves! Monday is here and we are back at it again. I hope your monday has started off on the right note, and if not, don’t sweat it! Your day will come πŸ™‚

I wanted to take the time to write this post because as we know, summer FINALLY started and we need to be prepared both fashion wise and budget friendly. I recently discovered, and maybe you have heard of it, SHE INSIDE. It is the most AFFORDABLE and stylish online clothing store. I have gotten a few pieces from them and it took those few items to get me hooked with wanting to buy more.

I have already started browsing through their items and found such amazing deals on tropical themed clothes! And yes, I have already started adding items to my cart as we speak (hope my hubs doesn’t check the bank account πŸ˜€ ).

Any way, below I have listed the items I think we all need to have, check it out and comment below which is your fave!

Much love, Karen ❀

Romantic Summer Dress

After having the stomach flu all last week (I’ve survived!) let me say I am so happy to be back on track. It feels great getting some new content shot and done. But, one thing I am for sure happy about is the fact that summer is finally here! I am a big sucker for beaches, swimsuits, and of course long romantic summer nights.

I have noticed many bloggers posting about their go-to swimsuits that I decided to post my go-to romantic summer dress. It is no surprise that in summer white is a big deal, (sunburns are no fun) which helps keep us cool, but at times it can get boring wearing all white. Dresses for summer usually call for flowers and prints, but this off-the-shoulder dress not only does it have polka dots, it has an A line cut off meaning we can show our legs some love as well!

How To Look Stylish In Low Heels

Monday has finally arrived and of course this means refreshing our minds with new styling ideas is a must. I have been obsessed with low heels over these past few months (they are just perfect!) and my only blame is….Zara. Oh goodness where do I even begin with this! It became the only thing on my mind due to its classy look and yes, the low inch heel. As a mom, wearing heels can only happen in our dreams, so low inch heels are extremely welcomed any time. But styling them can be tricky and it helps narrowing down what can pair well with them now that summer is approaching.

My number one tip would be to buy dark and light colored low inch heels. Navy blue, and two toned neutral colors can be easily worn with much of what we may have in our wardrobe.

Tip number two: Dressing shorts/skirts , dressing pants (rolled at the ankle), and ankle cropped jeans or skinny jeans compliment the heel structure.

Tip number three: Adding casual t-shirts or knits will keep you from looking too over dresses, and will keep you feeling comfy.

I am still on the hunt for more heels (can’t get enough!)Β , but I hope these tips can come in handy the next time you shop for low inch heels πŸ™‚

How To Wear A Leather Skirt

With the weekend already approaching, I am noticing how the weather is slowly climbing up the 70’s (I need 80’s! tho) and although it may not be too cold at the time, there is always a way for leather skirts to make their way in.

I have seen a bunch (more like tons) of inspirational pictures of fashion bloggers dressing in leather skirts all over instagram and pinterest. Β They wear them with Β different types of combinations that make them look so effortless and chic at the same time. Although I love dressing up, I have to be realistic about how being a mom makes a huge difference in my day to day wear. Nevertheless, I think doubling leather in your outfit makes the outcome look so pulled together and casual, and when sandals are added it takes the look to a whole new level.

Blazers with a White Shirt

Monday is back and I think we all need some inspo at this time right? I think yes, and the one thing I had completely forgotten about was blazers. There is something so chic that comes to my mind when I think about blazers. Its a way of showing you are serious about yourself, but when added with a simple white shirt it not only shows seriousness but a sense of being laid back as well. For this reason, (and many more) I absolutely adore blazers, perfect for the office or special meetings.
