While this certainly isn't a fashion blog, I do really like clothes. I wouldn't call myself a fashionista or, really, even someone totally stylish on a daily basis. But I do like to dress comfortably with a bit of style. As a mom of two rowdy boys, the clothes I wear have to fit to cover all my "areas". I have a middle-figure body type and low-rise jeans are my arch nemesis. Nothing worse than bending over to pick up Frederick just to have my backside hanging out. So I like to stick with mid-rise skirts or jeans, looser tops and comfortable flats. That's my day-to-day wardrobe and I'm not ashamed of it. It's all about finding what colors and styles work best on my body, not that beautiful girl on Pinterest who has dark brown cropped hair, blue eyes and wears a size 2.
DownEast Basics recently asked me to be their Guest Stylist this month on their website so go check it out here to see my picks. DownEast is a really great place to get the "look for less". See that gorgeous Kate Spade necklace in my mood board? Well, I can't afford to spend $148 on it but DownEast has a necklace with a similar color scheme for $20. Can't beat that! They also just relaunched their blog so go take a peek at that as well.
