OOTD : 2 Days of Poly's Put to Life

Outfits of the days today ladies!!  Two different looks for two different holiday occasions.  The first is more comfy / casual for a cosy family gathering.  The second is all glommed up for a fashionable work party!!

Here is my OOTD from Sunday.  We had family pictures:

And the realization of that outfit:

Aren't my babies just the most adorable ever?

The sweater dress, leggings, and dress are SO comfy for chasing after the kids, crawling after the kids, and all the other "after the kids" things moms do.

Then on Tuesday, I attended my Premier Designs jewelry Christmas party:

And the realization of that outfit:

My Bling Mom is pretty adorable too!

Sometimes a mom just needs to feel sexy.  The short skirt is great for those times when you AREN'T doing the "after the kids" things.  The lace sleeves give more coverage, since we're showcasing our legs, while still looking sexy.  This dress is FAB-U-LOUS!!  I was so excited to finally find a dress that fit me in all the right places.

Where will the holidays take your wardrobe?  Be inspired and inspire others by sharing your photos and ideas!!

Happy Holidays, loves!!

How to Get Ready without Stressing Out

As a mom of two toddlers, I've experienced that it takes A LOT to get ready to go anywhere.  I have a hard enough time keeping myself on track, let alone two other people too.  So how is a mommy supposed to get places on time without falling into "schluppy mom"?   Here's what's worked for me!

I have a board on Pinterest with outfit inspirations.  These are outfits made up of ONLY clothes that I actually have (or the equivalent of the same).  For example if I don't have an orange cardigan, I know that I'll substitute pink for it.  My board is called Outfit Inspirations G2G (good to go).

Then when I'm in a rush in the morning, I just pick an outfit from my board, go to my closet to grab what I need, and BAM!!  No more schluppy mom.

Anyone else have ideas?  How do  you keep from getting overwhelmed in the morning and keep from running late?

'Til next time, loves!

Wardrobe Editing : How to Choose What to Keep

Hello Gorgeous!

I've been able to do some shopping over the weekend.  I desperately needed some cool-weather clothes.  And as usual when I get new clothes, it makes me want to edit my closet.

x# of items in = x# of items out

Ok, so I don't always follow that rule, but it does help to keep my closet from reaching critical capacity.  I have a blog series on organizing your closet and finding your style.  You can find that series here.  But if you need a quick and easy flow chart, my friend D introduced me to this one:

Pretty good, right?  Thank you Pinterest :D

'Til next time my sweets
