Sadie/Holly photobombing

One of the topics for #BEDN was Fashion.  A few months ago, I hated trying to put together a cute outfit, because none of my clothes really fit well and I was not happy with my body. Now that I've been with AdvoCare and really paying attention to how I'm fueling my body, and what I'm putting into it, I am SO much happier.

I really do love fashion.  I will admit, that as much as I want to, I really can't get into runway fashion that much...I appreciate it; I look at the photos and think it can be very artsy.  But most of the time, I cannot envision myself [or any of my real life friends] parading around in some of those bizarre outfits! I often wonder, how does a particular trend begin?

The scarf?

I remember seeing the girls on The Hills back in 2009, thinking oh wow, I can do that!! I started my scarf collection then, and never looked back.  Until now.  I look at scarves now, but I just don't think I can justify one more?  I feel like I'm always hot anyway, with carrying or caring for Brooke.  I do love that it can dress me up a little, even if I'm in jeans and a long sleeve T.  I just don't know, are they fading? Are they really still in?  It's a chilly winter here, so I feel like they are a necessity, but fashion wise? I don't know if I'll buy that many more.  Who knows, maybe it's just a phase I'm going through. I was obsessed with them when I was pregnant.  [mostly because I knew it would always fit and not just temporarily haha]


I think that I do a good job of balancing some trendy items and investing in classics; i.e., designer jeans, beautiful boots, black dresses. You know, the staples!    I will say, high waisted shorts are not my thing, but if you can pull em off, props to you! I think that and a super red lip and the right hair style can look very Katy Perry errr cute.  I also know that I am 32 and not 18.  I do think it's important to dress your body type and to feel confident in what you're wearing.  I love wearing clothes that my husband loves seeing me in; but I'm lucky because he loves seeing me in leggings and a baggy sweatshirt, jeans and a t-shirt, or an expensive pink dress from Guess he bought for me many moons ago.

My goal this challenge was to get back into my cute sweaters---BAAMM! I nailed it.  Here is a super cute, fitted Banana Republic sweater from 2010.  I paired it with my new skinny Express jeans and a pair of brown boots [I ordered on Amazon $30 last year]

I will admit, I attempted the cuffed boyfriend jean with the jeans are a little too big, my shirt should have been longer, but it was fun for a quick outing to get my nails done.

And a few weeks ago, we had a date night!! I decided to pair my short brown dress with my faux fur and new Aldo boots.  I felt 60's chic and loved it!

And of course, let's not forget about sporty spice.  Sometimes I dig a ponytail, headband and my yoga pants.

No time for mommy to wash her hair in the shower?  Roots are reeeeeally bad?? Throw a hat on.

So while I don't think I have "one style" I definitely find fun in exploring different fashion styles and really, I'm all about the comfort.  If I don't like the way I feel in it, I don't want to wear it.
