Finding the Good in Unlikely Places

This post contains affiliate links.

What does it mean to be good? That is something I thought about recently, when Cents of Style asked me to feature their Be the Good “Fashion Story Friday”. I thought long and hard about it and decided to do the unthinkable… Go back to my middle school.

I decided that my middle school was the perfect place to take photos for this shirt because middle school was honestly where I learned the most about being good. It wasn’t because middle school was the best two years of my life though. It was because I experienced some of my lowest of lows while standing in this very building. [Read more…]

Best Tunic Ever for Postpartum!

Affiliate links included.

Last time I had a baby, I didn’t breastfeed for very long. She was a NICU baby and never did figure out nursing, so I pumped and fed her for about 3 weeks. This time, I am enduring longer and it has been a totally different journey. One difficulty that I didn’t expect at all was finding tops that would work with my ever changing postpartum body and is also breastfeeding friendly. That is why I am so grateful for this Cents of Style tunic!

DIY Minnie Mouse Knee Patch Pants and Shirt

If you have been a semi-long time reader, you know that we have a thing for Disney. I mean, who doesn’t? Saying you don’t like Disney is like saying you don’t like Santa Claus! Our love of Disney definitely skyrocketed when we became parents. Our little Disney loving princess made quite the impression on our family. In fact, on a phone call with Dave yesterday the point was made that there was no way he would have known that Minnie Mouse’s nieces  were named Millie and Melody prior to being a dad. Gotta love the useless information kids put in our brains sometimes!

Speaking of that Disney loving child, I made her a new little outfit inspired by her favorite Disney diva, Minnie Mouse!

I love creating character inspired clothing because I know I can make it in a way that is modern enough for mom to like, but is character enough for the little to like!

These Minnie Mouse patch pants and shirt were the perfect combination of both! They were insanely easy to create!

60 Perfect Forever 21 Items for Stylish Moms

Just because you are buying your kiddos back to school clothes right now, doesn’t mean you have to miss out on getting yourself a few things for this “school year” too! I love finding clothes that I can buy without making a huge investment. That is how I have always felt about Forever 21. The problem is, I’m no longer 21. I’m far closer to 30 than I am to 21. There are so many cute things they sell that I can picture a younger version of myself wearing and I had almost given up hope shopping there ever again. Then I discovered a treasure trove of Forever 21 goodness that is totally appropriate for moms who want to look fabulous, but don’t want to spend a lot of money on themselves after spending it all of their kids’ back to school needs. Here are 60 Forever 21 finds that I am totally obsessing over right now!

60 Perfect Forever 21 Items for Stylish Moms on www.girllovesglam.com

I will admit, I probably purchased more of these items than I care to admit but I love when I can find a great price on stylish clothes! The greatest part about all of these pieces is that they are modest too. I am a momma who can appreciate finding stylish pieces that don’t have to be altered too much in order to make them modest. I hope you can find some goodies to suit you this Fall too! There was a lot of research that went into this post and there will be affiliate links throughout this post. Please use them! It will help me justify spending all of this time (and money) researching this for you guys and I will know if it is something that I should do again in the future. Who doesn’t like doing some shopping when someone else has done all of the work for you?! [Read more…]

Wearing Black in the Spring

Photography by: Stayc Smart Photography. This post contains affiliate links.

I have a confession to make. I love black. As much as I love color, I am a true black loving girl. When I was in beauty school, the dress code was all black all of the time. I would hear girls complain about having to wear black everyday, but I didn’t mind at all. I felt like I was totally in my element. When I was put in the honor program, I got to wear black and white. I love black and white together almost as much as I love black by itself. What I am getting to is that I have always been a fan of black and no matter what time of year it is, I will be wearing black! I think there are definitely appropriate and inappropriate ways to wear black in different seasons. I want to teach you how to wear black in the spring.

Quest for the perfect jeans

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Levi’s®. All opinions are 100% mine.

Finding the perfect jeans can basically feel like an impossible task sometimes. It seems like I can’t ever find the perfect combination of fit, wash, and style. Shopping for jeans used to be one form of torture to me. I always left feeling broken and hopeless. I have always struggled to find jeans that fit my body the way I want them to fit. I know I am not alone when I say that. I am happy to report that my quest is over! I went to Macy’s and tried on the newLevi’s® 711 Skinny jeans. Levi’s Brand has always been a favorite of mine because of their iconic, classic, effortless cool style.

Dressed Up Spring

This post was sponsored by Payless Shoe Source. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Photography by: Stayc Smart Photography

As much as I love a practical outfit, I love a good dressy outfit such as much. Before I became a mom, I would dress up for no occasion at all. I love dressing up! Although I am not dressing up for no reason anymore, I still like to have plenty of dressy options available. I think the fact that I don’t get dressed up as often makes the times when I am able to get dressed up even more special!

One thing that I love about dressing up is the opportunity to bring new textures to an outfit. Wearing lace isn’t something that I do day to day. I always seem to get it caught on things when I wear it often. When I wear lace, I like to have it on something that I wear for special occasions, like this skirt. I’m pretty much head over heels for this skirt and can’t wait to pair it with many tops this season. [Read more…]

Finding Stylish and Practical Style

I can honestly say that I have never taken to the internet to see how to wear a specific style of clothing. I have always just kind of trusted my gut and dressed in a way that makes me feel confident, but also fits my lifestyle. I can’t help but notice the amount of pictures I see on social media of moms wearing insanely high heels who are chasing after their kids. That just doesn’t seem authentic in any way. I can’t relate to that at all. I love a good heel, but it has got to be practical too. I would call my overall style practical and stylish. I wear things that I feel good in, but I can also play on a playground in my clothes.

Summertime is all about the summer nights for me. I love how long the sun stays up, the chill of the summer breeze, and the fun activities that happen in the evenings. I have big plans of attending many BBQ’s and a lot of the free concerts they offer in my area this summer. Putting together an outfit for a summer night is all about light layers, while keeping the feeling [Read more…]
