Okay, all the style illustrations are now up on pinterest

This is it.  No more posting style illustrations.  I promise. Today I’ve got Slacker, Bombshell, Sporty Chic and Gamine on pinterest.  They all look really great.  My book, Escape from Ugly Mom Island, is now available on amazon kindle.  The printed copy of my book will be available on amazon this week.  Although currently amazon is playing a cat and mouse game with me and not telling me exactly when it will be available.  I will announce it when they let me…

Some Sporty Chic I’d like to forget…

A Year in Review – Day 21 Thankfully, I didn’t have any horrible fashion train wrecks with Sporty Chic — except for the one above, of course.  A fashion train wreck with Sporty Chic would probably involve a lot of muffin topping, bras sticking out and the dreaded cellulite showing through work out pants.  Now that I’m thinking about it, that probably did happen to me, but at least I don’t think it happened all at once. Here are some…

A Year in Review – Day 20 I can’t believe I have only eleven more posts until the end of the year.  In realizing this momentous year is almost over for me, I also realized that I have to stop doing a quiz every few days — I just don’t have enough time.  I still have to talk about Sporty Chic, My month of Maxi dresses, Gamine, Arty Slick, Eco Mama, Bombshell AND reveal my style choice for next year…

Eco Mama – Day 2 Here’s my first attempt at a totally organic outfit.  I believe what it lacks in creativity, it makes up for in it’s in-your-face-saving-the-worldness — I’ll break it down item by nature-loving item — 1.  Peruvian fair trade sweater — I bought this locally and paid a lot (80.00).  Because of it’s price, it will be the only warm cover up I buy this month.  I apologize in advance for how sick of this sweater you…

Sporty Chic — The Reckoning…

Sporty Chic – Day 30 Today is the last day of June, which means I must say farewell to my Sporty Chic wardrobe.  Good-bye to all my racer back tanks, my dresses that I can wear out to lunch and then go snorkeling in and my cute, insanely durable sandals that will stay attached to my feet under almost any circumstances — whether I get swept up in a tornado or I’m just running wildly through Whole Foods trying to…

Sporty Chic – Day 29 Well, if it’s a sporty chic dress with that strange, other-worldly quick drying material, just throw it on over a bathing suit, grab an inner tube and jump right in.  I got this dress on the clearance rack at Sports Authority in their yoga section.  I think it was on the clearance rack because people normally don’t do yoga in dresses.  And it has UV protection just in case you’re doing yoga in a dress…

Beautiful butterflies, majestic shoes…

Sporty Chic – Day 28 Yesterday, we went to the butterfly gardens at the University of Florida and it’s by far the best one I’ve even been to – huge curious butterflies swooping around you and landing on your shoulders for friendly meet and greets.  You get the feeling that all the butterflies took a stringent public relations course.  It was so fun and the variety of butterflies is unbelievable.  My son had the butterfly description guide and was walking…

Sporty Chic, thy name is Athleta…

Sporty Chic – Day 28 This sporty-horsey picture is brought to you by Athleta — Bo and I coincidentally both wore some of our favorite Athleta garb to see each other — Dipper pants for Bo and Athleta skirt that hides frontal cottage cheese thighs and junk trunk for me.  It was ninety one degrees and humid and Bo was cool as a cucumber in her pants and I was easy-breezy in my skirt. I wish I could say the…

Sporty Chic – Day 26 If you’re curious about Sporty Chic, but don’t know where to begin, here’s an outfit that I think fits all mom requirements – Athleta Dress — Sure, it’s expensive, but it’s also versatile and completely indestructible.  I’ve worn this dress to the park, to the pool over my bathing suit and even out on a date with my husband.  It’s gotten “goat yuck” on it, chocolate smeared all over it and been caught in the…

What to wear to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter…

Sporty Chic – Day 25 To any Harry Potter event, you should always wear a cape, wand and magical animal of your choice.  But if it’s “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” at Universal Studios in Orlando and it’s ninety degrees, you could also wear this — I chose a kind of maxi tribal inspired dress (Mrs. Kingsley Shacklebolt?) for the day because all my Sporty Chic dresses are sleeveless and I didn’t want to get sunburnt.  My kids love…
