Fashion Friday

It’s Friday!!  Can I get a woot woot!!  This week flew.  I’m so glad the weekend is here.  Isn’t Friday the best?  I love the anticipation of the upcoming weekend… which usually turns out even busier than the week… but the anticipation of down time, whether it happens or not, sure feels nice.

Ok – first up on the fashion agenda – Some of you asked questions about the outfit I posted last Monday…

The simple cowl neck top is from Forever 21 (shock!) and the boots I bought at a specialty store that I honestly can’t remember the name of.  The tag says Forever – not Forever 21 because they were a tad more than 20 bucks.  :)  Sorry that isn’t much help!  I bought them in December when I was in a haze of Christmas shopping madness (because nothing calms the haze of Christmas shopping madness like making a little purchase for yourself) and I really didn’t pay attention to the store I found them in.  I just saw them in a store window, decided I’d been a really good girl, tried them on and bought them in a matter of minutes.  I’ve become a rather quick shopper.  Before I had kids I used to browse for hours and take forever trying on and debating different options.  Those days are long gone!  I can’t begin to count the number of times I’ve been in a store with a toddler and half way through my browsing stopped and said, “we’re out of here.  Done.  Not happening today!”

Snapped another fashion pic of my sister-in-law while we were in Utah.  I love the way she wore her belt high above her waist.  So cute with the orange sweater and grey and white stripped top (Target!).  

We were celebrating my brother’s birthday.  (btw- don’t you just love my nephews hair!  What a stud.  I tried to spike Kole’s too.  He ran away before I was done – mid spike – and looked hilarious.  The do was not a success.)  Notice the missing chunk of birthday cake.  Austin and Dayna went to dinner and my girls just couldn’t wait one more second to dive in.  Ha!  I don’t think the birthday boy minded too much.  Especially since he came home to birthday cards showering him with love from two happy girls with chocolate in the corners of their mouths.  :)
My cute mom on her way to work one morning.  Love the scarf.  Love the green.  Love the jeans.

Love the purse.  Love my mom.  
Couple things I’ve worn lately…
Cowl neck sweater from The Limited.  This is SO warm.  I love it on chilly mornings.  

And this outfit I know you’ve seen before, but since it has been “winter” around here I thought I’d share my favorite winter accessory.

These tights are from Nordstroms.  They are called Spanx ‘Trinket’ Tights and I love them so much!  They are a fun diamond pattern that I’m crazy about.  Adds a little something special to the outfit without being too crazy busy.  If you don’t own a pair of Spanx you are missing out!  The top of these tights have a control top that will make you look and feel 5 pounds thinner.  LOVE Spanx.  Aside from my diamond pattern tights, I’m also loving the ‘Back Seam Dot Stockings’.  Such an easy way to add a little personality to your outfit.  And to hide those white winter legs.  Unless you’re naturally tan all year long.  And if you’re one of those girls, you should probably wear tights anyway so that fair skinned girls like me will still speak to you.  ;)  
I think I’ve shared this Forever 21 top with jeans before.

Just another way to wear it with a basic black skirt from Banana Republic, black boots, and a peek of my diamond tights.  

And last but certainly not least, Miss Addison modeling her panda pajamas (Target baby!).  And yes.  She likes to wear hair accessories that match her pj’s.  As soon as we are in for the day (sometimes as early as 4:00) we all put on our pj’s.  Ellie and I are pretty casual, but not my Addison.  This girl believes that style doesn’t stop.  Not even for bedtime.

Enjoy your weekend everyone!   

P.S. – I have had several requests to do a post about my favorite jeans.  I guess since I’m just a tad obsessed with them?  :)  If you have a jean question let me know in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer it in next Fridays’ post.

P.P.S. – It’s March.  :)  :)  :)

xoxo, Erin

  1. Yes!! Jeans!! Love the idea.

    What kind of rise do you wear? As a mom of 2 I hate low rise jeans. Much prefer a mid rise. But don’t want to look like I’m wearing “mom” jeans.

    Also, any tips on getting them for less?


  2. I love your blog but have never commented before. The jeans post got me too excited though.

    Do you ever get your jeans altered? Does it look weird if they have to be hemmed? Do you know of a way to not get a gap in the back or have any butt peekage while playing on the floor with your kids?

  3. I love all your tops and your Mom’s outfit was so pretty! I was curious what you do if you find the perfect pair of jeans but they are just too long. Do you buy them and alter them or do you skip them?

  4. QUESTION: What are the most flattering, slimming jeans in your opinion? And do you think women with a little thicker legs should wear skinny jeans? If so, how do you think is the most flattering way to wear skinny jeans?

  5. I just ordered two pairs of SPANX tights when they were on sale on Zulily for $14 a pair and I’m so excited to put them to good use. Now I just need a pair of sassy black boots like yours and I’m in business!

    Can’t wait to drink in your jeans wisdom!

  6. I am obsessed with jeans too! Just got two new pairs (Citizens and Hudsons) so I’m feeling spoiled! My biggest thing is how to keep them looking crisp?? I iron them to get the wrinkles out, you know from sitting, but sometimes that still doesn’t get those creases out. I don’t want to wash them all the time but I love the look when they are wrinkle free!

  7. Hi Erin, I am 5’5 and always have a hard time finding jeans that are the right length. Petite are too short and average are too long. I admit..I’ve been to lazy, and I really don’t know how to hem them. Any suggestion would be Great! Stay Fashionable! Love,Candy

  8. I have a jeans question!! Thanks for helping! My jeans always sag in the crotch area – what does that mean in regards to sizing? Do I need a petite jean? Different rise? What?!?!

    Also, any suggestions on where to find cute, stylish, plus-size jeans? Thanks!


  9. I can see where you get your great sense of style – your mama’s outfit looks great.

    Did a post on organizing today on my blog and of course I had to mention your blog! Every time I’m on here it inspires me to keep organizing. I’m down to the last few messy spots since we moved in last Fall and now I just need to tackle the biggest mess of all – my man’s desk. Disaster zone.

  10. Jeans, absolutely! My question has to be how do you cope with the lengths available? I seem to either have short jeans which are verging on too short so I can only wear them with boots, or I have the opposite with them trailing on the ground so the hem gets ‘distressed’ very quickly! I’m a shortie at 5’2″ so always have this problem!

  11. I have a swimsuit that was made by the creator of Spanx and I LOVE it. Have not tried the actual thing but it sounds like something I need desperately. I’m also in desperate need of a pair of flattering jeans. I need some that accentuate and make my butt look more perky and I refuse to wear the low rise that let my stomach that has been stretched to high heaven 6 times over hang over the edge.

    Can you make that happen, please. Thanks. *smooch*
