If I’m going to be a mess, I’m gonna be a HOT Mess. – Mindy Kaling
Oh Lordy…so true. Where are my Mamas at? Girrrl…I feel you and I know the #struggle. If you are a working Mama, a stay at home Mama, a work at home Mama, or a Mama to be…it’s AMAZING when we can actually leave the house, with some mascara, lipstick, hair done, and wearing clothes that do not have stains of some sort on them and that do not belong like they should be worn to the gym. Because, seriously, I wear my yoga pants to yoga…no, I really don’t. So, when we do get out looking like, somewhat together, give us a round of applause! It’s truly amazing!
I made a commitment to myself this year that I will not leave the house in sweats, but instead, wear real pants. And pants that fit and look good. This has been an easy go to outfit, to wear for that Target run with the littles, or meeting a new client. I present the HAUTE Mess Mom styling outfit to go…
Start off with easy transitional pieces. I love this soft swing tee that I scooped up during Nordstrom’s Half Yearly sale along with these olive-green Articles of Society ‘Sarah’ skinny jeans . They fit perfectly, run true to size, and have some incredible stretch to them. Get them now for less than $40! A jean jacket is such a classic staple in your closet. Find one that you love, and you’ll be able to complete any outfit…with a dress, with shorts, and looks great paired with boho style maxi dresses.
A beautiful and bold statement necklace adds that finishing touch to any casual outfit. It’s like the sprinkles on a frosted cupcake. I absolutely love this Stella & Dot Sutton 5 in 1 statement necklace. You can wear all 5 strands, remove strands to lighten the layers, or let it hang long. I love how it’s the perfect mix of metals, as I’ve always been an all gold or all silver type of gal. My girl, Nikki, of Casual Blonde blog, hooked me up with this stunner. She is a Stella & Dot stylist and I love her blog! Check her out and show her some love!
Sunny days and even on cloudy days, wearing sunglasses are a must. Not only do you instantly look “cooler” but you are protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays. Plus, the bigger the frames the better! They also help protect the skin around your eyes, which is thinner than other parts on your face. My favorite sunnies are these Coco Palms style by Maui Jim. Created on the Hawaiian Islands to make the colors shine, Maui Jim sunglasses feature patented PolarizedPlus2® lens technology for brilliant color so every detail is crisper and cleaner and without glare or harmful UV. Wearing good sunglasses allow your eyes to relax, so that you are not squinting through them. And squinting causes wrinkles…and we don’t want that.
I have owned these leopard flats for almost 9 years! Leopard has proven to be a classic print, and they are so comfy and look so much better than my purple Ugg slippers that I love to slip on! All 3 of my daughters love to pull these out of my closet to play dress-up in them! They are fancy!
There you go, GirlBoss! Rock your stuff looking like the HAUTE Mama that you are!
