Now that Caity is getting more independent Rob and I are getting a chance to go out more. It may only be for a quick dinner but I enjoy every minute of it. One of my favorite parts is picking out an outfit and getting ready. Usually I have the sitter come early so I can take my time and actually enjoy it! I often miss having the excuse to look nice. Even when I am dressed up I need to be comfortable to really have a good time. This Amelia and Lindsay combo is just perfect. The Amelia accents the ladies and forgives around the tummy while the Lindsay just provides a little more camouflage.
I decided to look for accessories to this outfit online at one of my favorite stores, Kohls. All these accessories are on sale plus you can earn Kohls Cash for every $50. And if you spend $75 you get free shipping.
About Cherry Blossom Loves #cblsahmstyles
Since becoming a SAHM it’s been a real challenge to keep up with my appearance. I didn’t realize until recently how much I had let myself go over the last 4 years. I showered maybe 3-4 times a week, never worried about what my hair looked like, and stopped using makeup all together. My wardrobe consisted of black yoga pants, black tank tops, and black shirts. I stopped caring about accessories, purses, and my jewelry started collecting dust. I never looked in the mirror and hated being in photos with the kids. It was bad and I was miserable.
After bringing it up in a few of my moms groups I found out it’s more common than I thought, more importantly I wasn’t alone. I decided enough was enough and I needed to stop making excuses. I started shopping around for fun clothes again, which lead me to participating in my first LuLaRoe Pop Up on Facebook. All the sudden my closet was full of color, fun patterns, and even cute dresses! From there I started investing in accessories and paid more attention to my appearance and how much time I spent taking care of myself each day.
I realized part of the problem is finding fun yet practical and reasonably priced clothing. I decided to take on the challenge and this mini series to share some of the stores, brands, and outfits that fit my needs as a stay at home mom.
