Skirt: Banana Republic $14.99 | Heels: Steve Madden Nude Pumps $99 | Blouse: Chambray (old) | T-Shirt: TJ Maxx $9 | Sunnies: Forever21 $5.90

End of summer brings warm days and cooler nights which makes putting outfits together tons of fun. It also means that fall is fast approaching and layering will be my new best friend. Who’s ready for fall?

Bright Skirts

Love wearing bright airy skirts during the end of summer. It’s sorta my farewell to summer and hello to fall. I paired this Banana Republic skirt with a long sleeve button down chambray blouse and heels for a quick dinner date with mi amor. Oh and the skirt was less than $15 (an additional 50% off sale price online). Best find ever!

End-of-summer-must-haves-banana-republicGingham Prints

Gingham prints are my absolute favorite to wear during fall. Perhaps it’s because it reminds me of picnics and having that perfect weather to be outdoors all day.  The print on this dress is perfect. Plus, the style is a great transition from summer to fall. Just add a blazer or leggings with booties for cooler days. And the button up part makes it a breeze to nurse my 7-month-old. I scored this one at TJ Maxx for less than $20. I also found a similar one at Macy’s for $69.99. Love wearing this casual dress with my red Converse. Definitely, an ideal outfit to chase after my soon-to-be kindergartener (sigh! they grow so fast) or in this case, carry around my monkeys at the zoo!

Chambray Shirtdress + Neon

Dress: Banana Republic Textured Chambray Shirtdress (similar here) | Clutch: Target Merona Pouch |Shoes: Guess Coral Patent Pumps (old) |Sunnies: Betsyville Leopard Cateye || On Mia || Dress: Target | Shoes: Clarks Silver Sandals

I’m a big fan of chambray anything and everything. It’s lightweight and oh so comfortable. You can dress it up this season with the right accessories or dress it down. Which is why I’m always on the lookout for timeless chambray pieces.

This textured chambray shirtdress from Banana Republic is one of my latest steals. I found it at a Banana Republic outlet for 50% off ($35). I love how the material feels and all the simple details it has. It’s loose-fitting with a wrap around belt to hide the little baby weight I’m still haulin’ around. Plus, it’s nursing friendly. Need I say more?

I’m currently wearing the dress with pops of neon (neon coral pumps and neon clutch) and loving the contrast. Would you wear it?

Mom Fashion Tips: Summer Shades

Let me start by saying that, yes, I might be a tad obsessed with sunglasses. I really think shades or glasses in general, are the best accessory anyone can wear. And if you’re anything like me, I lose these things just as much as I do my hair scrunchies. Anybody else with me on this one? I mean come on. One day I have a pair of shades in my diaper bag and then viola! the next day it just magically disappears. Little sticky fingers are usually the culprit. Ahem, Mia. I’ve found some of them looking mighty “stylish” as she calls it on her stuffed animals others have just gone somewhere into the abyss. But regardless, just another excuse to buy new ones, right?

These Betsy Johnson Betsyville shades help frame the shape of my face and are perfect for summer. Found them on clearance at my favorite store, Target.com and at only $7.48 each (70% off), I had to buy multiples. Is that a deal or what?

Mom Fashion Tips: Spring Fringe

Mom Fashion Spring 2016 FringeSpring is just around the corner folks and I’m sure you’ve seen your fair share of fringe everywhere since last fall. Let me tell you, this 70s trend is definitely not going away anytime soon. It’s on jackets, purses, skirts, boots, you name it. So how do you wear fringe this spring without it looking too over the top? Well, in one word, accessorize. Just add a fringe-trimmed necklace, bracelet, sandal, backpack or bootie. Here’s an example of a super casual spring look that is both budget-friendly and comfortable enough to chase after the little nuggets.

Top: TJ Maxx $9.99 | Jeans: H&M (old) | Fringed Booties: Burlington $24.99| Fedora: Forever21 $22.90| Fringed Backpack: Target Mossimo $29.99 | Shades: Target $14.99

Speaking of nuggets, our oldest loves flowers so naturally we bought her some pink flowers just in time to plant them in for Spring. Why pink? Well, it’s her favorite color of course; however, this just may change come next week. 😉

Mom Fashion Tips: Navy+Red

I may or may not have a 75% black wardrobe. Aside from it being my favorite color, it’s both flattering and pairs really well with just about any color.

Recently, although, I started to purchase an alternative color, navy. I love that it’s still a dark color but has a slightly different hue and goes well with bright colors. In this case, red.

This navy collar dress with white stitching is comfortable, nursing-friendly (buttons in the front) and it’s flattering as the belt really draws in the waistline. I’m currently wearing it with flats or for a more casual look with red converse. Would you wear it?

Mom Fashion Tips: Textured Skirts and Scarves

Mustard-Mini-Skirt

Mustard Textured Mini: Forever21 $19 | Booties: Burlington | Scarf: Gift From My Awesome Grandma | Hat: Forever21 | Leggings: Target

These past few weeks have been rough with a newborn and preschooler as we’re still trying to adjust and find our way back to a somewhat normal routine. But in all honesty, I’m loving every second of it. I’m realizing that time is not on our side and before we know it, they’ll be little ladies. So for now, I’m loving all the baby snuggles, massive diaper explosions, newborn thigh munchin’, late night feedings and preschooler sweaty hugs and wet kisses on repeat.

Also, if you’ve been following TMO for quite some time, you know it’s been a few weeks since I posted in our style segment. Since I’m finally starting to catch my breath sorta speak, I’m excited to announce that starting today, we’re moving forward with a new style segment called Mom Fashion Tips. The segment will consist of new trends, new products, and fashion steals.

Today’s post includes a fashion steal. This $19 mustard contemporary textured mini skirt adds an instant punch to this outfit. I know what you’re thinking. Really a mini skirt for moms and you’re telling me to wear it during winter? Yes, really! Just pair it with black leggings, a black 3/4 sleeve sweater, booties and accessorize with a cute hat and scarf. It’s a perfect postpartum outfit or for any mamá on-the-go as it’s super comfortable. So let me ask you, would you wear it?
