Fashion Friday: Spring Dressing With Halsbrook (& A Big Sale!)

Even though the forecast here is absolutely dreary for the next five days, it IS time to prepare our closets for spring. Perhaps if we all start buying spring clothes it will help move the weather forward? A girl has to hope! So today I am sharing some awesome spring outfits from our sponsor Halsbrook that combine classic tailoring  with of-the-moment style.  I really love ALL these looks so much I may need to add them to my own closet– and thankfully right now they are having their Friends & Family sale which is 20% off sitewide with code FF2017!!!! Happy Friday!

Fashion Friday: Singing In the Rain with Joules

Today I’ve partnered with one of my sponsors, Joules, the adorable British clothing brand to share some picks that Henry and I made for rainy spring days ahead of us (please- I’ll take rain over snow!) Also, Joules was kind enough to offer a 20% off code for EOS readers good until June 10th!  Use RAINAWAY at checkout!

Is there anything cuter than a baby boy in a raincoat and wellies? I think not. Especially when toddling to Starbucks with his daddy (who also happens to be wearing a Joules raincoat purchased last year- this one is the same fit but different color).  I have tons of Joules stuff for Henry because its so well made and lasts forever. As a mom, I’m a huge fan (and was before they were sponsors!)

Fashion Friday: Shopping Like Your Mama

I wore some high heels last weekend to dinner and felt a tad wobbly in them- then realized that’s because I NEVER wear heels anymore.  I have come to value comfort as much as style now that my life is crazy busy with a toddler, and so my wardrobe is slowly shifting from binding party clothes (a la Cher Horowitz) to more comfortable, but still stylish basics.  Ain’t nobody got time to be uncomfortable in their clothing.  And while I still think I dress pretty decent, I have noticed more “mom store” items creeping into my atmosphere. Now I have not gone so far as to start ordering from Soft Surroundings and living in mumus, but I have noticed that traditional “mature women’s” shops have been stepping up their game a bit more when it comes to design and fit.  Chico’s has some seriously cool jewelry with a MArni-esque vibe, Talbots has had some awesome shoes as of late, and Ann Taylor has greatly improved their fit and style.  Even Garnet Hill has a bunch of stuff that I’ve dog-eared in the catalog.  So here are some recent finds that I think work equally well on someone 25 as it would on a 55 year old.  Lesson learned: never write off any store because it seems too “mom”. :)

Fashion Friday: The All Powerful Neutral Shoe

dbb180a35ce7636d4894a7f88a62922b b78cebd9048f27e68744269448b34ebe

A purchase you will never regret is a great looking, well made neutral shoe. May it be a heel (essential ladies, it elongates the leg like no ones business) or a of-the-moment style like the backless mule, they go with everything and anything and are a key component to a well rounded wardrobe. And by neutral I don’t just mean BLAH beige- metallics (especially gold), sparkles and of course LEOPARD are all part of that category. In fact while strolling into a doctor’s appointment this morning some guy yelled “great shoes” about my leopard loafers which I had popped on because my outfit was otherwise very basic.

So heres a round-up of great neutral shoes– this spring it’s allllllll about the slide on sandal and mule. Backless or bust, I guess. :)
