Spring Fashion: Robeez Soft Soled Shoes

Samples provided
Robeez soft soled shoes


When my babies are little and need some protection for those cute little feet I love to find stylish soft soled shoes for them. When people think of soft soled baby shoes Robeez instantly comes to mind and for good reason they have a track record of quality shoes!


robeez purple


The Robeez soft soled shoes are both comfortable and durable and the softer soles offer cushion the feet and allow toes a better grip, helping balance, encouraging muscle growth and preventing slipping. I find these shoes ideal from pre-crawling until walking. Once they start walking these are great to transition them to regular shoes as they gain better balance!



My daughter is modeling the Robeez On the Run Soft Sole Sparkle in purple and they are very cute. The faux sneaker is very popular and the purple color is a nice feminine touch. These adorable soft soled baby shoes and many others are available at MyRobeez.com. Check out what cute Robeez Andrea’s little boy is wearing over on Momma in Flip Flops and let me know what pair you love!

Spring Fashion: Cropped Studded Boyfriend Jeans #SpringTrend #Springfashion

The following is a sponsored post, all opinions are my own.

studded boyfriend jeans jennifer lopez collection


I have finally fully embraced the fabulous nature of the boyfriend jean and then I went a step further and I fell in love the a pair of studded cropped boyfriend jeans from the Jennifer Lopez Collection at Kohl’s. I have had my eye on these cropped boyfriend jeans for weeks now and finally broke down and tried them on and I am in LOVE!

You may not think these jeans are very versatile but they really are and on top of that they are super comfortable. Since buying them I have worn them pretty much non-stop ( yes I do wash them). I have worn them casual with a tee shirt, I have worn them with a sweater, a tank and cardigan and more. They works with flats and wedges too and of course heels, they are way more versatile than you realize. Here are 3 different ways I recently wore my studded cropped boyfriend jeans.

What I Wore Real Mom Style: Capris!!! #RealMomStyle

lee slender Secret Rossi capri


Over the weekend it hit 80 which means warm enough for capris! Lee sent me two pairs of capris to style for spring and they are both great. The first pair is the Lee Slender Secret Rossi capri, just like the name says these fabulous jean capris are slimming with the slender secret stretch material that keeps your looking slim and trim. I have really been loving coral this spring and I knew the dark wash of these capris would be a great contrast to really make coral pop so I paired them with my favorite coral leather motorcycle jacket. Under the jacket I put my new Peter Som for DesignNation pineapple tank so as the day warmed up I just took off the jacket, add to it some coral wedges and voila a fun spring outfit!


Lee Classic fit Monroe belted carpri


Colored pants are huge for spring as are colored capris and the Lee Classic fit Monroe belted capri comes in several colors including sugarmint, the color I chose. Upon seeing these capris I immediately new I wanted to pair them with navy and I had the perfect linen blend sweater from Old Navy to wear. I decided to throw on my fedora at the last minute and I love the laid back effect, I can almost pretend I am on vacation somewhere beautiful!

Have you broken out the capris yet this year? What are your favorite types of capris and what do you wear them with?

Peter Som for DesignNation Now in Kohl’s Stores! Plus a $100 Kohl’s Gift Card Giveaway

peter_som I participated in an Ambassador program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Kohl’s. I received Kohl’s gift cards and sample pieces to facilitate my posts and as a thank you for participating.

The day has finally arrived Peter Som for DesignNation is now in Kohl’s stores nationwide. The collection went on sale online early but when I realized it was going to be in store before my shipment would arrive I waited and hit the stores first thing Thursday morning. After browsing online I had a list of items I really wanted they included the Peter Som for DesigNation Motorcycle Vest, the Peter Som for DesigNation Motorcycle Jacket and the Peter Som for DesigNation “Jàdorable” Striped Tee.







I called the stores upon opening in search of that fabulous motorcycle vest and sadly none of the four stores I called had it in store, but they did have some of the items I was looking for. The location I went to had a great selection of Peter Som items and I am so glad I went in store as I found some pieces I really love that did not catch my eye online. The biggest surprise to me was the Peter Som Postcard Sweatshirt, I really love this fun and super comfortable piece! I styled it with cropped boyfriend jeans and some cute casual flats.

I also fell in love with the Peter Som for DesigNation Striped Faux-Wrap Top, after trying it on I could see it styled multiple ways. I decided to style it with cropped boyfriend jeans, the Peter Som motorcycle jacket (which I did find) and some Ralph Lauren gold croc heels.

I was also able to find the Peter Som for DesigNation “Jàdorable” Striped Tee which is a super cute tee that goes with everything. I threw it on today with my jeans and white denim jacket and it was perfect for this cool spring weather.

And then there is the Peter Som for DesigNation Slubbed Pineapple Tank, it makes me wish for the beach just wearing it, I guess that was the whole point since Peter Som was inspired by this breathtaking view of St.Barths.

old navy camo trend

Old Navy is always a favorite store of mine for affordable on trend fashion, I know I can find some of the hottest trends in items I would actually wear and at a price point I can afford. The skinny camo jean has been around for awhile now and I have been eagerly waiting to loose that last bit of baby weight to buy some. ( No I have not lost it all but I have reached that point where I usually plateau for a few months). When I saw the Old Navy Women’s The Rockstar Zip-Pocket Pants in camo I knew they were perfect, I already know The Rockstar fit works well for me so I had no worries about ordering these online.

old navy camo skinny jeans, and denim jacket


To complete my look I added the Old Navy Linen-Blend Pull-Over in black as I love the look of black with camo. Every one needs a great denim jacket and Old Navy is the perfect place to buy a classic denim jacket, this silhouette never goes out of style and is a wardrobe staple. I chose the Old Navy Women’s Cropped Denim Jacket in Rinse, a darker wash.

Finally I needed shoes for this great look and you can even find those at Old Navy. When I saw they were carrying my favorite style for spring, d’orsay flats, well of course I had to grab a pair. The Old Navy Women’s D’Orsay Sueded Flats come in 4 colors and I chose sand for my look.

Guest Post: When Sports and Fashion Collide: Hot Trends in Varsity Jackets

The following is a guest post: Megan Barnes enjoys vintage fashion. She often writes about integrating classic pieces with modern looks on style blogs.

Fashion trends are inspired by many things. Whether it’s the colors of autumn that inspire a shawl or a day at the beach that inspires a dress, fashion comes from just about everywhere. And this season, the popular trends in varsity jackets are inspired by school athletic departments everywhere. Sometimes, the hallway inspires the runway, and such is the case with the varsity trend. But knowing how to dress up and accessorize your varsity gear might be a bit tricky. The following information should help you bring your “A” game to the fashion arena.

varsity jacket

Chambray Comes to Play: This is the season of chambray everything. The denim in appearance but cotton in feel fabric is trending for its comfort, compatibility with the new boyfriend jeans trend, and ability to be paired with virtually anything. Layer a button-­up, collared chambray shirt underneath your baseball jacket and don a cotton tee underneath for a preppy yet sporty look. (You’ll want to leave the chambray shirt unbuttoned.) Pair it with boyfriend jeans and Converse, or even pointy ­toed flats if you want to dress it up a bit.

Dress Code: Sure, the varsity jacket is a pretty casual trend. But that doesn’t mean you can’t pair it with a nice dress. For instance, if your varsity jacket is primarily navy blue, wear it over a red fit and flare dress with pumps for a trendy, fashion­ forward appearance. You can also wear a varsity jacket over a dress and wear Converse or a similar style shoe, as well. If you opt for the latter, wear a pair of earrings (like large, vintage, button earrings) or a statement necklace to dress it up a bit.

A Little Leg Room: Did you hear that patterned leggings are in style? Then match some leggings with an oversized top and a varsity jacket for a gorgeous and cutting edge look. Make sure your leggings are more conservative in their pattern to avoid a chaotic look, however, and add a pair of pumps in a solid color to the mix to make it an eye­catching outfit.

Color Me Trendy: Where did you put those colored denim jeans from the spring? Find them, get them out, and put them to use, because they make a perfect companion to the varsity jacket. A light colored pair of jeans with a light jacket (and dark with dark) can make for a very coordinated but not overdone look. Don’t be afraid to dress it up a bit if you like, or don a pair of flats or tennis shoes to keep it casual. You can pair neutral­toned varsity jackets with colours of all kinds, so stocking up on a few grey, blue, and tan varsity style jackets can help you incorporate this look into the rest of your wardrobe without too much effort.

Top of Your Game: If you’re Rihanna, you can simply use the varsity jacket as your top and call it a day. While not everyone is comfortable with this look, there’s nothing wrong with buttoning or zipping up the front of your varsity jacket and using it as a shirt. It’s certainly daring, but so is wearing a trench coat as a dress, and that’s a hot trend, as well. If you’re going for the jacket as a top trend, you can pair it with heels or Converse for a great look.

Of course, it doesn’t really matter how you wear the varsity jacket, so long as it suits your style.

There are a wide variety of outfits you can make by adding the varsity jacket to your wardrobe. You can also go with the classic white t­-shirt, boyfriend jeans, and Converse outfit and simply
wear the varsity jacket as it was originally designed to be worn. But if you do, let your hair down so it’s wavy and beautiful, or style it another way to add a touch of femininity to the mix.

Spring Fashion Event: Pediped Spring Sandals Plus a Giveaway

pediped purple sandals


It is no secret that I love, love, love, love Pediped. They are my go to children’s shoe store for my girl’s and this spring is no different. When my kids are still toddlers it is especially important to me that they have comfort, support and quality in the shoes they wear and dress shoes and dress sandals can often be lacking in this area. I want a super cute dressy sandal for my 2 year old that has a supportive sole and non-slippery sole, you would be surprised how hard this is to find.


pediped sandals and dress


For my sweet Genevieve I chose the Pediped Meredith in lavender and they are perfect. The cute spring color looks great with her fancy dress and I know that her feet are well supported, no tripping, slipping or sliding across the floor. And if you are feeling envious of these great shoes for kids then be sure to check out Brian James, they are for moms and just as great.

Spring Fashion Event: Stylish Swimwear from Hapari Plus $100 GC Giveaway #springfashion


hapari Retro-Fashion-Seaside-Tankini__84553_thumb

Summer is quickly approaching and that means we need to discus swimwear, an often touchy subject for women of all ages but especially when we get over 30. As someone who makes her fashion decisions based on modesty, finding a swimsuit that I feel comfortable in and is flattering can be really tricky.

For years I was a competitive swimmer so I just stuck with my various team suits and then I had kids and my body changed and finding a swimsuit that felt mom enough yet stylish enough became really hard. When I take my kids to the pool I am not looking to be sexy, but don’t make me a bag lady either, you know what I mean?

hapari Retro-Fashion-Eyelet-Tankini__97452_thumb

Hapari is one swimsuit shop where I have had great luck finding flattering swimsuits that are appropriate and stylish. My favorite silhouettes is the bandeau tankini with a swim skirt. For me the two piece is convenient and the straight across top means I don’t have to worry about too much cleavage showing. One of my favorite things about Hapari is once you find the print you like then you have a multitude of silhouettes to choose from and several bottom choices as well, they even have tummy tucker shorts that are very retro and super cute!

Spring Fashion Event: Paperwhite Collection for Women #springfashion

paperwhite fashion

I am always a bit timid when it comes to patterns, while I love them on others I always feel off in them, a bit uncomfortable even, I know that sounds silly it’s the Type 4 in me. Anyways I always stare longingly at them and then buy a nice solid color instead. Sometimes that is the right choice for me, but other times I am passing up on a great piece out of fear. Well after viewing the fabulous animal print patterns in the new Paperwhite Collection for spring I had to take a chance on pattern.


paperwhite leopard tunic


The first item that really caught my eye was this leopard print tunic, it is bold and bright and just all around fabulous! I am so glad I took a chance on this piece as I truly love it and feel amazing wearing it. I wore this outfit to host a Beatles themed Wedding Shower and it was perfect, comfortable to take care of all my hosting duties yet looking chic.


paperwhite leopard shirt



Keeping with my animal theme prints I took a big risk for me and got this 3/4 Roll-tab dress in a blue snakeskin print. This dress is super fun and really makes a bold statement and the shirt dress style is a classic silhouette so it isn’t too trendy.


paperwhite blue snakeskin wrap dress


As you can see this dress really needs nothing else, just some simple jewelry and black heels and you have a stunning outfit. I have lots of events coming up from my daughter’s First Communion to a rehearsal dinner and this dress is perfect for all of them. Be sure to check out the great Paperwhite fashion that Andrea is modeling over on Momma in Flip Flops then go check out the rest of the collection at Paperwhitecollection.com also follow them on Instagram and Twitter.

The selection of dresses we found was great and my girl’s all ended up with lace dresses that are just too cute. My oldest daughter is wearing the Belted Floral Lace Dress in Blue, also available in coral. The fit is great and the lace is so girly and feminine she just loves it. This dress is made of stretch lace so it is not as delicate as traditional lace making it perfect for an active girl and the peekaboo hem means my tall girl can wear her normal size, which we love.


childrens place pink lace easter dress


Her younger sister loved this silhouette as well and chose the Belted Lace Dress in pink. I love how this bright pink color really pops on my daughter and again the lace is kid friendly and the peekaboo hem adds length. These two dresses together make great coordinating outfits without being too matchy-matchy which my girls enjoy.

Keeping with the lace theme, which is super on trend for spring, my 2 year old got the Pop Color Lace Dress. This fun dress is a lace overlay of a coral color block dress, the effect is adorable.
