White Denim I Miss You

Now that spring is officially here I’ve found myself missing my white skinny jeans. They are safely nestled with my other pre-baby jeans that I’m patiently working towards fitting again.

I’d love to pair an off the shoulder chambray or navy top with some white skinnies, that look is so in right now! I’m entertaining purchasing a pair for this spring/summer that will fit me now. Some contenders:

AG The Prima in White

I already know I like this brand/cut and ShopBop has them 50% off!

7 for All Mankind Gwenevere Skinny Jean

I already own a few pairs of this brand/style so I know the fit would work out for me. Off Fifth has a few pairs left and are almost 60% off!

Articles of Society Sarah Distressed Skinny Jeans

I’ve never tried Articles of Society denim before but I’ve heard good things and I’m really loving the distress look right now. These are not on sale but are under $60 over at Nordstrom!

What do you think? Have a favorite white denim that I need to know about? I’d love to hear from you!  Right now I’m leaning towards the Articles of Society distressed skinnies.

SIS Body Blast Workout

I’ve had my blog up for almost a month and I’m long overdue sharing a fitness post! This is Style in Shape- Fashion and Fitness for less afterall and that fitness category is empty! But guys, let me tell you- it’s a lot harder than it looks. To the seasoned fitness bloggers out there- bravo! You make this ish look not akward and totally embarassing. Or maybe it’s just me that is akward and embarassing but you know what? I’m sharing anyway. It’s a killer workout. Some of my moves are modified and my range of motion is no where how […]

My Spring Shoe Picks: Target Style

I’m obsessed with my new perforated mule booties (right). Like so obessed, there is at least one other blog post this week about them! Are they not the cutest? And perfect for Ohio spring weather when you’re just not sure if it’s going to be gorgeous or rain or snow even! The color is just right too! Love love love them! I’m also really excited to see that this A2 gladiator wedge (left) is still around this season! I fell in love with these sandals last year when I was shopping for my trip to Paris. You can find them at Target and […]

Back to the Grind

Today is my first day back in the office, eek! On some levels it feels like the past twelve weeks flew by and isn’t exactly long enough time with my new babe. Thankfully I’m only working part time over the next few months which means lots more days full of baby snuggles. Jumping on the Blush Crush craze I paired my favorite black pull on pants with a soft blush top and a white blazer for my first day back to work. I dug out these super old blush snake skin heels too. Truth be told I’m a little nervous to […]

Styled Details

One of my favorite ways to switch up wearing the same wardrobe pieces is mixing up the outfit details- the shoes, the jewelry, the makeup. With the looks I wore most of this winter (here, here and here) it was easy to mix around details to keep myself from focusing that I only had a handful of tops that fit right after pregnancy. Switch a bootie to a riding boot, swap a necklace or give myself a fresh mani can really make a difference. (Pro tip: this is a GREAT technique to use when traveling- create different looks by packing less clothes […]

What I wore: St Pat’s Day!

I am super excited that the gorgeous green blouse my husband bought me for Christmas now fits! Over the holidays I instantly fell in love with the rich green hue and pleated back of this blouse. It kinda killed me to watch it sit in my closet but there was no way it was going to look good over the bump! I styled it with cigarette jeans, suede wedged booties and simple jewelry for our St. Patrick’s celebration this year. We met some friends for the kids to play, watch Irish dancing and of course a little green beer. What did you do? […]

Cold Shoulder for Winter Date Night

I truly have a love for the burgundy/merlot/wine family. And today I’m sharing another one of the pieces I picked up in that color. So let me start by saying I am not the biggest fan of cold shoulder tops. Idk why, they just aren’t really me?… However, the moment I put my hands on this cold shoulder knit top, I didn’t care if that style is me or not- I wanted to wear this fabric ASAP. Maybe it’s the winter, or maybe it’s the Mama Bear in me- but if it’s soft and comfy, I have to have it […]

Yogurt Parfait Err’day

  Usually if I try to eat the same item every day, I get burned out quickly. I don’t know what Chobani puts in their coconut greek yogurt but I’ve ate this almost every day for breakfast for probably the last two years. The secret for me, I have to throw some texture in there. Almonds, chocolate chips, strawberries- whatever I have laying around.     Lately though, since I’ve been nursing- this yogurt parfait has been my staple. Brewer’s Yeast and Flaxseed are full of milk-making supply goodness. By mixing it up in my yogurt, I can’t even taste […]

The Blardigan

Hello, meet what the bestie and I refer to as The Blardigan. She has one, I have one- and it’s heaven really. What is it you ask? Pretty much the most soft cardigan ever made. It’s fuzzy, warm, oversized and ombre. It’s almost like wearing a blanket. I even purchased my mom one for Christmas. It’s that amazing. I wore the heck out of this Barefoot Dreams Cardigan from the moment it was gifted to me. I’m talking once or twice a week. It’s the best to wear on a cold day, especially when snuggling a newborn. Or brunching. Or […]

Oversized Sweater FTW

This oversized knitted poncho has been my serious #1 go to sweater this season. Almost anytime someone would come to visit the baby, I’d throw this on. During holiday shopping I grabbed it on sale at Banana Republic Factory for $30. At the time, I was 34+ weeks pregnant and even at an xs, this sweater fit over the bump. Even though it runs large, I saved it for post-baby anyway. I’ve been head over heels with the burgundy/wine/blood red color since fall and I adore the chunky knit. It’s super easy to throw a long sleeve tshirt underneath and pair […]
