I’m starting this blog because to be honest, I’m a bit frustrated. I love clothes, love dressing up and yet most of the time I don’t put forth any effort into my look. I look into my closet and think I have nothing to wear!
I have spent a lot of time looking at other fashion blogs. While I love lots of them, many of them were too outrageous, too fashionable (is this possible?) and too expensive for my style.
Worst of all, they just didn’t seem real. Real moms don’t wear stilettos and carry Prada handbags. Real moms wear jeans, yoga pants and hoodies! I wanted to create a blog that reflected that- yet with a little style.
One thing I always love in makeover shows are those fabulous before and after pictures! It is so inspiring to see how a few small changes can dramatically change someone’s look.
So I decided to try my own little makeover show- creating outfits from my closet and reflecting on what works and what doesn’t!
My goal is that my wardrobe must reasonably priced, be comfortable and age appropriate.
I’m not trendy. I’m not a risk taker. I have no fashion training or background and I’m not willing to spend a fortune on each outfit. I’m just a 41 year old mother of two kids who wants to look and feel great.
I live in a suburb of Seattle, where style is pretty laid back. My clothes are not expensive, they come from Nordstroms, Anthropologie, J Crew, Target, TJ Maxx, Kohls, H & M.
So, dear reader (if you’re out there), thank you for reading and please feel free to make comments, suggestions, send me pictures and let’s all inspire each other!
