I debated about even showing you my outfit from yesterday- because really- it isn’t that fashionable! I just thought it was sort of cute…and definitely better than the outfit on the right.
But then I remembered that pre- Everyday Mom Style– knowing what to wear to children’s sporting events used to be a struggle for me. Do I go with yoga pants and a sweatshirt? Jeans and a cardigan? What do people wear to these things?!
I figured if there are other moms out there wondering what to wear to their kids games- than maybe I should go ahead and post my outfit.
Luckily, yesterday it was over 80 degrees, so I didn’t need multiple layers (like I usually do), so I opted for a simple shorts and tank combo.
To make the outfit bright and interesting, I went with these cute madras plaid shorts and a pink tank. To keep my look polished, I added a long necklace and cute leather sandals.
It was cute, comfy and weather appropriate. Too bad my daughter’s team lost… oh well, there’s always next week! Go Flyers!
Although I don’t wear this style often, I do love my bootleg jeans. They are a great alternative to my skinny jeans- plus they make my legs look really long (just be sure to pair them with heels)!
Today I decided to pair my jeans with a cute new blazer I just picked up.
I was super excited when I found this one on the clearance rack at Kohl’s for $12. It’s got everything I would want- it’s a soft jersey cotton, has stripes and also has a peplum- which is very on trend right now.
To keep the look light and ‘springy’ I’ve paired it with this bright tank and open toed sandals. It’s a lot better than the look on the right- yet achieves the same effect of layering- jeans, shirt, sweater (or blazer).
Today I’m wearing my cargo skinnys with a cute bright tank and my blue blazer- which is all tied together with this colorful belt, that I’m wearing backwards!
It may be a little strange, but I wanted to really show the colors on the belt, and when it is on the normal way, you can only see the leather buckle.
So I figured, turn it around, the jacket hides the buckle part, and now you can see the colors!
For my before picture I’m showing my old cargos AGAIN! I know I should donate these to Goodwill, but there are just so perfect for comparing to the skinny cargos that I have to keep them. The loose, baggy fit isn’t current and looks sloppy.
In the before picture, I kept the tank white- just to compare how different the bright tank under the blazer looks. Then to break up the solid pink, I added a necklace. Finally, for my shoes- I chose these off white wedge heels- they are perfect for spring- and being a wedge- very comfy!
