Summer is in full swing and being comfy while having a bit of breeze, thats what matters the most in this heat. Style of course comes in second. I have been obsessed with the leaf print dress (so much I need help!) and of course I needed to create a day to night look for this gorgeous slip on dress.

Hats, espadrille sneakers, and cute accessories compliment this leaf print dress so well, you will instantly be looking so stylish everyone will wonder if you are a model (literally, Im a witness to it lol). Its such a nice versatile dress that you can’t go wrong with! Im wearing a small and the price is just below $20! Its a must steal/have which will make all your friends jelly!

I hope you like the two ways I styled this dress and of course, happy friday!

How To Pull Off An Outfit With No Jewelry

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!?

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 ❀

Dress on Top of Jeans

Okay so its Monday and of course I’m ready to try out something new. I know we are not exactly at that point where its humid and hot outside, but as I stare at my closet filled with those oh so pretty off-the-shoulder dresses, I can’t help but to think about how I can manage to wear them without it being so dressy. Does it make sense? Well my initial thought was to wear them with a sweater, and of course I hesitated because don’t we all do that (its so comfy tho). To top it off, I realized I needed to go shopping for sweaters anyway, so that was out of the box, and then I thought why not layer it on top of jeans. Its very simple and yet so sophisticated at the same time. Adding a pair of heels (I really wanted sneakers) gives it that cherry on the top. So now my Monday is complete and I can go relax…jk I need to do loads of laundry 😦 but I sure will do it in style.

Lookin For Spring

Wow where does time go! Its already 2017 and I’m barley writing my first blog post lol. 2016 sure was filled with a lot of surprises, but I’m really looking forward for this year, and of course spring. I know we all were excited for winter when it was fall, but now I’m really looking forward to the floral textures and the rising of the temperatures, so I of course am already whipping out my springiest jacket I have to get into the spirit (and to make me forget it’s freezing cold).

Okay, who is guilty of following fashion trends? (raising my hand, its cool if you are too lol) I sometimes can’t hold back on following the trend, but only if it actually screams my name (not literally) in a way that says I can pull it off. So, with that said I was pulled into the velvet dress trend. I could not stay away from getting one because I have always been a big fan of the velvet texture. And, the fact that there are multiple colors that actually go with you no matter your skin color, thats amazing. I love finding affordable clothes, and this dress was not an exception. The only con I see is that it is backless, and a wee bit high on the thigh. But don’t let that stop you from wearing what you want, its just my personal preference.

Chic Jacket

Summer is a couple of days from being completely over (although I can already feel it being over) and that means pulling out jackets is a must, especially in the afternoons. Luckily I have found a great chic jacket to go along with all of my outfits. That includes dresses as well, which I’ll do a post soon. This lovely chic jacket has all the deets, literally! I am in love with the patterns and especially the opening and sleeve cuts. It gives a very calm vintage vibe, which is great because we all need a little vintage in our wardrobe. I am looking forward to pairing it with different tones and textures, and of course I will keep you updated. Make sure you keep up with me on Instagram@stylishcitymom for more style outfits! πŸ™‚
