April 22, Sunday, Sunny Sunday

 Oh thank you Mother Nature for another perfect weekend in the Pacific Northwest.

This is the 3rd weekend in a row that we have seen the sun- and what a difference that makes.

In celebration, I’ve chosen a sunny yellow top.

I’ve paired it with this cute and COMFY North Face skirt. This skirt is made of bamboo- so it is incredibly soft and the fabric is eco friendly!

I love the asymmetrical hemline of this skirt too- it’s interesting.

However, looking at the photos, I wonder if the length is a tad too long? Maybe just an inch shorter to show a tiny bit of knee would be better.

At first I played it safe with a plain white t shirt. Unfortunately- this shirt just isn’t right. I think a v neck would be more flattering.

That being said- the neckline on the yellow shirt is sort of similar- but it has cute detail around the neckline- look closely and you can see little cutouts. The other thing I like about this top is that the waistband is banded. Some people hate that (my husband included). Personally, I like it because it causes the shirt to billow out a bit- disguising any tummy issues. The straight cut on the right doesn’t hide a thing! Some think the banded waist actually makes me look large (ahem, my husband again), but I have to disagree.

Oh dear… looking at the pictures he may be right. Damn it! Oh well. I’m wearing it anyway.

I’m telling you- a photo is so much more effective than a mirror. ARGH!

Please don’t tell me what you think. I can’t have you all telling me I look fat… I just don’t want to know!

This neckline is so detailed I decided to skip a necklace. I'm wearing a bunch of bracelets instead.

August 29th, Cropped Jeans and White T. Classic, but Boring?

Cropped jeans and a white t shirt.
A more interesting white t shirt make for more style, right?

 In my attempt to me more stylish I am learning one thing. I need help! I look around and see so many adorable outfits, and feel so plain in comparison!  Having not much to go with- I stuck with a classic look of white t shirt and cropped jeans, yet I feel like it’s really boring and uninspired.

To bring my outfit from boring to a bit better; I changed the plain white t shirt to a striped shirt with a lower neckline, and I added a necklace. I think the simple changes help a bit, but I do feel the need to apologize for today.

Please send photos of your inspired looks- I’d love to post some other ideas. Everydaymomstyle@gmail.com

I'm having writer's block with my clothing choices. I need inspiration!
