3 Ways to Style Mom Jeans

Let's talk mom jeans! IDK where this name even came from or why all of a sudden these came into style but I AM HERE FOR IT! They're so stinkin' cute and finally a look that most short girls can pull off! Lol I feel like a lot of trends cut out short girls because we have awkward sized legs lol (midi skirts/dresses- let's be honest, they're just maxi for us)

So here's to helping you find a new way to style MY FAVE new style of jeans - and hopefully yours now too!

FOR WHEN IT'S FREEZING . . .



OUTFIT DETAILS

SWEATER: Jane - wearing a M // HENLEY : JCrew- wearing a M // JEANS: Target- wearing a 10, run small //

For this first look, I had to layer up- it has been SO COLD out here lately and the wind just bites so bad! I layered this SUPER WARM pink cardigan with a tight grey henley and of course my Mom Jeans! (these are from Target- only $22 and my favorite pair so far! Of course, these have holes in them so my legs were kinda cold - but hey, I looked cute, so that's all that matters right? lol #beautyispain



FOR RUNNING ERRANDS . . .



OUTFIT DETAILS
TEE : Nordstrom - wearing a M // JEANS: Target- wearing a 10, run small // SNEAKS : Walmart // HAT // BAG : LV Neone- Amazon dupe here //

I threw on this cute outfit last Friday when I had a bunch of stuff to do- including washing my hair- lol hence the hat! You can read the rest of that post here


FOR A WARMER DAY . . .


OUTFIT DETAILS

SWEATER: Target - wearing a M // JEANS: Target- wearing a 10, run small // SANDALS: Marc Fisher //

Back before this Winter weather rolled on back in, I styled them (for the first time) lol with this cute fuzzy sweater and a pair of my favorite sandals! Cute, simple but still fashionable!


So which was your favorite- or are you most likely to wear?!

I loooove wearing bright colors- during any season! This is just a super casual outfit I threw on for this windy, cold Sunday. Effortless, but still bright for the upcoming Spring.

How to Revamp Dirty Hair






OUTFIT DETAILS

TOP : Free People- sold out- similar here and here  // JEANS : American Eagle // SHOES : Gucci // BAG : LV Croisette // SUNGLASSES : Ray Ban Oversized Aviators // STACK : Emrish and Lily and Laura bracelets // 

I have worn this tee soooo many times the past Spring and Summer- it's one of my faves and while it's sold out, I linked some almost identical ones for you all! I love wearing white for Spring and Summer- especially paired with jeans!
These jeans are super cute- I've been wearing them nonstop too- and until I finally accidentally put my foot ALL THE WAY through the holes- I'll continue to wear them lol!! They have a button fly too which is super cute!




REVAMP YOUR HAIR!

A lot of the "revamping" I have to do comes from working out- lol! Sometimes it's salvageable and other times I'm like yea, okay, I've got to wash this out. Hopefully this will help you extend out your washes, if you can. It is seriously life changing for your hair. 

First things first- one of the BIGGEST helps when it comes to keeping curl in your hair or making sure it doesn't get super tangly are pillow cases. I have some I got off amazon- $10 for 2- they're satin or you can buy silk ones, either way it will help you from getting knots and making your hair frizzy! Most of the time I also sleep in a loose braid or bun in order to save my curls!

Next, go in with your dry shampoo- I'll link my favorite here. Hit any greasy parts underneath or on the tops or sides of your hair. Spray about 8-10 inches away and rub if you see a white tint. It will blend it in and also add a little bit of volume!

Then I will use the volume blast spray and crank up the volume- even if you don't like  A TON of volume in your hair, I highly recommend this if your hair becomes flat after a day or so and lays straight on your head (like mine). A little goes a long way with this too keep in mind!

My favorite heat protectant/style spray is this one by IGK- smells amazing and works great to hold in your curls! Then I will just go in and touch up curls where I need too! I use a 1" barrel - I'm going to try and do a waves tutorial soon, too!

Pink Rainy Day Outfit



OUTFIT DETAILS

TOP : Free People - wearing a M // SHAWL : Louis Vuitton - ballerine pink // LEGGINGS : Gap- wearing a M // BOOTS : Hunter // 

I am SO over all the rain this week!! We can't seem to escape it or the storms lately! Lol. Luckily, it looks like it should be gone by the weekend- so hopefully we'll have a warm, sunny one. I always have the toughest times getting ready on rainy days- A) because I know my hair will most likely become a frizzy mess & B) it's just so hard to dress when it's all rainy and wet outside. 

Last year I got these Hunter boots in pink ( of course) and I LOVE THEM!!! I literally wear them almost every time it rains haha. They're easy to build an outfit from because of their bright color- but they also come in A TON of different colors- both tall and short so you can pick one that matches you and your closet the best.

I paired mine with just a basic pair of leggings and my favorite pink shawl- almost matches my boots perfectly too- lol! It is kinda pricey- but I will link a few used/resell ones below!

I hope everyone has a Happy Wednesday!

Pink Heart Sweater + Valentine's Day




OUTFIT DETAILS

SWEATER : Chicwish- size S/M // JEANS : Paige - wearing an 8, tts // BOOTS : Target // NECKLACE: Siss Kiss // CLUTCH : LV Double Zip in Rouge // 

Almost halfway through January. which is nuts! I feel like this year is going to fly by too. But I am ready for winter to be over. I need to bring out all my Spring dresses and head to the beach! Lol!

Like I said, I will use any excuse I can to wear more pink! And with Valentine's just around the corner, you bet I'm gonna be in pink a lot more! Lol. I love this one with the heart stitching detail- and I am sharing a few other cute options below as well, just to get you started on your Valentine's Day inspiration! Are y'all going out or staying in? I don't think we've quite decided yet what we're gonna do. Last year we kept it super low key - we had just moved to Knoxville so we didn't have anyone to watch Liam anyways!

This look is a perfect casual Galentine's (or Valentine's) outfit! Super warm ( if you're in colder weather still) and comfy- but still cute! I love the girly details on this sweater. See more Valentine's Day inspo below!
