This ol’ blog pretty much started because I loved getting dressed. Sometimes it still blows my mind that I use to post 5-6 outfit posts a week. It’s fun to look back at old posts and see what I was wearing. Taking outfit pictures captured a moment in each of those days. I remember so much about each one; where we were, what the weather was like and what we were up to (My very first outfit photo over 5 years ago). One of the things I’ve really enjoyed about getting older and becoming a Mom is this undeniable sense of who you are. Of course when you first become a Mom things are a bit crazy. It felt more like an identity crisis, but things smoothed out and I feel like I’ve become my true self. Someone who is more confident, more relaxed, less dramatic, I know what I liked and I’m not afraid of projecting that. I think a little has to do with age but a lot has to be with becoming a Mom. It changes you. I feel like looking back over all my outfit posts you can see this change too. Most outfits I still like- not that I would wear them again but I like them, some make me cringe a little, while most are very fashion bloggy (is that a word?). I really enjoy who I am at the age of 31. Of course there about a thousand things I am still working on to make myself a better person, but I’ve come a long way from that person in that very first outfit picture.
I’ve teamed up with Lou & Grey for a few outfit posts to showcase their new lounge wear line that you can find at the LOFT. Their tag line “clothing for a comfortably confident life” really sums up this stage of life for me. I want to be comfortable, chic and live confidently in all that I do. Life is busy with little kids, there is not much time for myself. Clothes that are effortlessly chic are like my best friend. The Lou & Grey line is simple, cool, reasonable priced (LOFT always has great sales going on), and well made. I’ve been eyeing all these cute rompers I see around stores at the mall and have yet to try one on that didn’t make me want to pee my pants from laughing so hard. I realized I need to stop looking at stores like target, forever 21, etc… these clothes are made for 14 year old girls. Somethings work out great from those store, but some items…Eeeeek! It’s very apparent that they are not made for my 31 year old, post 2 kids, tall stature body type. This romper from Lou & Grey though? Perfection! Fits like a glove. Love the cute details, length is great, and super comfy.
Make sure to check out all of the Lou & Grey pieces over at the LOFT.
p.s. I will always love this yellow on yellow delightful dozen outfit.
p.s.s I was able to pick out pieces I liked from Lou & Grey but they never said I had to write anything. All opinions are my own. I was just so pleasantly surprised by how much I loved everything when it arrived, I wanted to share my love. I did find that everything ran a bit big. I ordered down and it worked out great.
p.s.s.s (?) can you tell i’ve been garden? DIRRRRTY KNEEEES
