Mom Style

For those of you who like myself, are always saying :

“I’m not like a regular Mom, I’m a cool Mom.”

Happy Fri-YAY Everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve contributed here, so let me reintroduce myself! I’m Brittany, an almost 29 year old mom of two boys. I just got my real estate license, I’m a serial baker, and serious shopper. I also run a blog, xoxob.com, where I talk about all things fashion, Pinterest projects, and recipes.

A big important factor to me, coming from the fashion industry and transitioning into full-time motherhood, was that I still maintained my sense of self (to some degree) while giving my all to my family.

I’ve found the best way to do this, is by maintaining my beauty regime and putting on a great outfit everyday regardless of my plans for the day. Let’s be real- I know that I don’t have time to contour my face everyday, and I wipe my make-up off before bed with baby wipes more often than using the fancy charcoal mask I bought at LUSH on a #treatyoself binge, but it’s putting in that extra 15-20 minutes on myself that I think helps maintain my sanity at times!

Each week I’m going to talk about a current fashion, beauty, or home trend that I am loving, that’s really easy for us moms to pull together on our Target budgets. This week I’m going to talk about a really hot trend that I can’t get enough of: OTS (off-the-shoulder) tops.

I scooped this top up off the sale rack at Forever 21 for $8.99, and while it’s sold out, I’ve linked some adorable and affordable similar options for you ladies at the bottom of the post. This top is perfect for a date night or a day out with girlfriends. Heck, I mean you can just take your flyyy self on over to Target and strut if you can’t find any other reason to wear it out! 😉 It’s super flowy, so it allows for a lot of room for tacos, and the elastic on the neckline keeps it in place, so you don’t have to worry about any wardrobe malfunctions.

I paired this OTS top with the MOST COMFORTABLE pair of jeans in the world. Quick back story- I do personal shopping with some clients in the area, and every.single.woman from size 2-20 has looked amazing in these jeans. They are the Mid-Rise Rockstar Super Skinny from Old Navy. There are a ton of different washes and rises available between $25-50 online, and they are so worth it!

Distressed black jeans are VERY in right now, so I grabbed these along with a few other washes when Old Navy was having a great online sale (I’m 4’10”, so I always have to order short lengths online). Since I was going to lunch with my sister, I threw on some fringe booties. While they have a great heel, they are also really comfortable and super easy to walk in, so I loved the way they dressed up the look. However, you could easily wear this kind of outfit a little more laid back with a soft pink lip, and sandals or ballet flats.

What are some trends you’ve been looking to try this season? Tell me below!
