Joylab

Not too long ago it was considered a faux pas to be spotted sporting your workout clothes all day, but today the Athleisure trend is one of the fastest growing markets in the clothing industry. The term Athleisure has even won a spot in the Merriam-Webster dictionary, and is defined as "casual clothing meant to be worn both for exercising and for general use". I for one tend to reach for a comfy chic pair of leggings and a cool pair of sneaks many times before reaching for a pair of jeans, but these chic leggings could run you as much as a pair of good pair of denim.
It seems like every It girl has been seen sporting a pair of Ultracor leggings on Instagram, and as much as I have been pining for this pair, these It girl leggings come at a hefty price starting at a whopping $185! For those of us who can't go dropping $185 on leggings, Target has your back with their new line of activewear Joylab. Joylab has all of the cool new styles with an even cooler price starting at $14.99 for a sports bra to $44.99 for this cool moto jacket and offers sizes up to 4x! Bravo Target bravo!

Effortless Everyday Style

When I say Effortless Everyday Style this is exactly what I mean


I may say things like that over and over again, but each piece is Effortless on it's own, and will lend themselves to a multitude of different styling options

This shredded sweater is a live in item for me, and only 4 left so grab it before it's gone
These Nili Lotan pants are a tad pricey, but I can practically guarantee they will be something you wear over and over again
This Levi's sherpa trucker jacket will be a total go to this season for me, I hate bulky winter jackets, check out this one too, and it's on sale!!
I am on the hunt for a cool new or vintage backpack and this one from Chanel is a top contender, I also love this one 
I just ordered these sunglasses, I love the modern rounded shape and I love a green lense
Ok, I am obsessed with these Hunter boots, perfect for trudging around in that messy winter wet weather, obsessed!!

What is your idea of Effortless Style?

Momming

I'm not really sure where the summer went but somehow the school year is in full swing and us Moms are right back into throws of school year Momming.

Momming (verb)
-the act of running around in circles
-finding water shoes at 8pm the night before a field trip
-pulling into school parking lot on 2 wheels to make it to school on time/game/concert/back to school night
-making 8 lbs of pasta for team pasta party

Look it's all good, we all do it, we are lucky to do it, and you know what we're good at it, even on those days when we feel like we fail.
Here's the shallow part..
It's not always easy to look good doing all of these things, most of the time our days or mine at least go from gym, to Target, to the supermarket, home to do laundry, empty that dishwasher that is somehow always full, take a 2 minute shower, throw G-d knows what on and run to that game
Ok ok I know land the plane...

On those days when I am running to where ever I will be slipping my feet into these cozies, my new go to's, which btw the Husband will hate!
Who What Wear called it and I knew I would cave



Sweater: H&M (I'm having a moment with fair isle sweaters):Jeans:Zara: Sunglasses:Ray Ban: Perfume: Replica Beach Walk (obsessed with this fragrance): Birkenstocks:Boston Shearling, love these and these

Bum bag, waist bag, belt bag, fanny pack, whatever you call them these bags are back and I bet here to stay. Don't believe me, check out Man Repellers The 470 Best Street Style Shots From New York Fashion Week and then maybe you'll believe me. I am currently obsessed with one from Gucci, but on a practical note, check out this adorable YouTube video Cocktails and Fanny Packs and this Instagram post from Orly Shani, for an effortless DIY hack to make your own fanny pack (btw her YouTube channel is fantastic I highly recommend subscribing!).
As much as I love that Gucci waist bag, I am following Orly's advice saving that $700 and turning my Loewe crossbody into a waist bag, and btw, hey Loewe you should totally make a waist bag!


So far I'm pretty happy with wearing my Loewe bag as a waist bag, I love that I re purposed it, thanks Orly, and I love that it's different and I think it looks totally cool, but when I do get that waist bag itch again, I am armed with a waist bag arsenal, some new and some vintage

What do you guys thinks? Are you on board with this resurrected trend?
Ugh...I really love this Gucci.....can't shake it!

Overall Perfection

A few years ago my friend Kelly bought the best overalls from Zara. It was that perfect pair of overalls that worked so well with a sneaker a wedge or a heel, and can easily be worn day or night. I'm not really sure why I never ordered that same pair of overalls, but that ship has sailed and I have suffered from overall envy all of this time....

Until I came across this pair of orange tab overalls from yup you guessed it, Levi's!!


Often times overalls give you that saggy ass look, but I promise you will look as good coming as you will look going in this pair with that signature cool kid Levi's orange tab styling



This pair is on sale and only a few sizes left so act quickly (I am wearing a 26), but I also love this pair (which is also on sale) these and these
I am wearing them with my favorite Adidas terry slides but would also pair them with this pair of awesome sock boots from Topshop, which are currently in my cart and I can't wait to get them!!!

Yup.....It's Sweater Weather

Sweater weather has reared it's chilly head overnight so sadly for me I am packing away my tees and tanks and lugging the sweaters up from the cedar closet. It is also time for me to take inventory of my sweater collection and discard the old pilly sweaters and make room for a batch of  fresh new sweaters. I say it every year, I typically do not spend a lot of money of sweaters, they all pill, and pull and get those frustrating little holes in them at all price points, so I am hitting up Shein to fill in the sweater voids in my closet without breaking the bank, and the best part...they are all UNDER $45!!

First in my cart is this effortless one shoulder sweater


I love the classic simplicity of this one shoulder sweater, pair it with a casual pair of sandals or a pair of heels this $17 sweater will take you anywhere day or night!

Happy Shopping!! xo

Here we go....

Here we go...I'm not obsessed with much this season, but one thing I am obsessed with is the side striped jean!

I am utterly obsessed with this trend, especially with the above Veronica Beard tuxedo stripe jean, I don't think I can get these into my closet fast enough
While the Veronica Beard is definitely on the pricey side you can get into this uber flattering trend for as little as $50

From AE, to Zara to Mother and so many more I got you covered on one of this seasons hottest trends

Now & Later

Hi Guys! I know I know I've been MIA lately, my sister even asked me if I was still blogging, I'm still here but I've been enjoying every minute of this fleeting summer.
And while fall is creeping closer, I have yet to really see anything that I have to have, and that's why I started this blog to share things that I love, anything else just feels forced.
With that being said....when I came across this Get off my Back sweater I automatically added it to my cart, you all know I love my graphic sweaters, and I can wear it Now with a pair of cut-offs and later with a pair of jeans like these Rag & Bones with the trend of the moment the step hem. I've been searching for a fresh new pair of sunglasses all season, but it seems like every pair is mirrored and mirrored sunglasses are just not my thing, these Carrera sunglasses are classically cool and are just what I've been searching for. Now this Gucci bucket bag well that's just my thing, the striped strap is perfect for now or later, and who doesn't need a fresh pair of kicks, last year I had to have the grey Tretorns now it's all about the navy, perfect for cut-offs or whatever the fall throws at me

Double Duty

*Sponsored*

You guys know that once the warm weather hits I basically live in Levi's cut offs, but I do love wearing light summer dresses




So lately I've been pairing the two together


This off the shoulder stunner is actually a $24 dress, while it's a no brainer to throw this dress on with a pair of wedges or flip flops I love how it also tucks easily into a pair of shorts, it's like getting two looks for the price of one


Don't you love how a simple summer dress transforms into a totally different look when you pair it with shorts? Double duty dressing at it's best!

Affordable Summer Dresses

*Sponsored*

Hey Guys! Today I am talking about affordable summer dresses, who's in??
I don't know about you, but during the summer my laundry load just about triples compared to the rest of the year. It seems like between me and the kids we each go through on average three outfits a day. This means keeping my closet packed with lots of choices for day and night, and it also means lots of strategic shopping. You all know that I am a high low shopper to begin with, so I love hitting up SheIn to find those affordable on trend pieces, that I now the Hubby won't freak out about when the UPS guy comes to the door.


I am loving shirt dresses this summer and I just grabbed this wear everywhere wrap dress, and I have my eye on a few more




Currently in my cart...

Topless

For some reason I have tons and tons of jeans, and bottoms, but I always find myself topless. Heading into the summer I am on the hunt for a bunch of great tops to wear for a stroll through town or a fun night out. I typically do not like to spend a fortune on trendy tops,so I tend to rely on favorites like Zara, Storets and SheIn to keep me on trend without breaking the bank.



...
So many of these trend don't last more than a season, so why overspend when you can find the same look for less. I would rather save my pennies for those Gucci loafers or that Loewe bag that I can't get out of my head!

Wouldn't you??

This to me is the perfect summer top, I love styling this top with the sleeves tied in front

Tie One On

A few years ago I became obsessed with these Brazilet bracelets

.

Brazilets are wish bracelets based on a 200 year old Brazilian tradition. Wrap you Brazilet around you wrist and tie 3 knots making a wish on each knot, it is believed that when the bracelet naturally breaks down and falls off your wishes will come true. I am such a sucker for things like this, I am super superstitious so of course I bought them for my entire family including the Husb, and all of my friends

Fast forward to Memorial Day weekend, perusing Instagram over my morning coffee, I came across this pic from Samantha Yanks, as soon as I saw that bracelet I had to google it....
These Roxanne Assoulin bracelets are based on that Brazilian bracelet I once loved but elevated with these amazing sterling silver beaded messages



I want them all!!! Which is great because you can buy them individually or buy the entire set!
Which one will you choose???

Smile Fearlessly

**Sponsored**

Call me a skeptic but, I'm not one to fall for that magic pill boasting weight loss, or that lotion that promises to turn back the hands of time, but when I heard about Smile Brilliant I thought this one I had to try.







At 45 years old and a major coffee drinker my teeth definitely needed a brightening, I have tried every whitening toothpaste, strip, gel, paint  and whatever else  you could find in the drugstore, and although my teeth weren't all that yellow to begin with, I never seemed to see any kind of noticeable results from the drugstore products.

Smile Brilliant is a affordable at home teeth whitening system comparable to what you would get from your dentist but for a fraction of the cost, and without any time consuming and pricey dental visits, Smile Brilliant is equally if not more effective.

There are six different systems to choose from, heavy stains to lights stains, sensitive to non-sensitive. I have sensitive teeth so I went with the T6 Sensitive System (average stains) which is $165, included in the kit is a set of impression trays and impression material so you customize your dental trays, it's super easy to do and practically fool proof but if you do make a mistake they include 3 sets of impression materials so you are sure to get a perfect impression of your mouth. You have questions, yes I did too luckily Smile Brilliant's 7 Things to Know before Buying Teeth Whitening answered everything I wanted to know and made me super comfortable using their products.


Once your impression are made you send them back to the Smile Brilliant lab in pre-paid postage envelope, within a few days your custom fitted trays are mailed back to you, and you are on your way to a whiter brighter smile!


Before

I've literally only used my whitening trays 4 times. I am a busy mom and always on the go so I only wear them for about 45 minutes-an hour at a time, but the recommended time is between 1-3 hours, even after just one wear I noticed a difference. As I said my teeth were pretty white to begin with but they had that dull yellow coffee addict tinge, Smile Brilliant has not only brightened my teeth but call me crazy I feel like they are shinier.

After

Another great feature about Smile Brilliant is that since you already have your own custom trays if you feel like in a few months that you need another round of whitening, you can order a pack of just the whitening gel, without ordering another whole kit.

Why waste your money on those strips that run almost $50 and barely work, your teeth and your smile is the first thing that people notice, we should all invest in our smile and be confident enough to Smile Fearlessly.

Because Sunscreen is not Optional

My skincare regimen is basic, it typically consists of products that can easily be found at Target or Amazon, and then one morning while chilling out to one of Jennifer Fisher's snap stories, I came across Glossier and the The Balm Dotcom. I have to tell you, there was something about the name Balm Dotcom that got me, and it got me good, their Balm Dotcom, can be found in my nightstand, my jacket pocket, my handbag even the husband is using it, personally my favorite is the rose, but the coconut is a close second. Then came The Super Pack, now I am not a serum user, usually eye creme and moisturizer is as far as I go, but something about the Super Pack lured me in, and just like that I am officially a serum convert.
There is something about this company, something about it's products purity, something about the simplicity of the products, so when I heard about their new Invisible Shield Sunscreen, I just knew I had to try it.


This clear watergel based sunscreen promises to instantly absorb into your skin, and not have that heavy greasy, white faced  typical sunscreen feel,
 Added to bag and checked out because sunscreen is not optional. 
Have you tried Glossier yet??

Day to Night


The minute I laid my eyes on this simple yet classic romper I knew right away that I could take it from day to night..

For Night: This romper effortlessly transitions to night replace the flat sandals with a sandal with  chunky heel like these from Stuart Weitzman, replace that straw tote, with a hip clutch, I am so obsessed with this one, add a belt like this one from Chanel, a funky pair of  hoop earrings and you are good to go!
