Carissa Miss modest dresses with major heart

I can’t even tell you how much I LOOOOOVE it when I learn about shops who do what they can to make a difference. I love it even more when that shop is started by a friend and their shop supports something I believe in so much. That is exactly what happened when Carissa Miss started her shop.

The Carissa Miss shop is full of modest dresses that Carissa designed herself. Every piece is perfect. I own two dresses and they are both absolute favorites of mine. I am wearing her Kellie Baseball Tee dress as I write this very post! Each piece is handmade and very high quality as well. You can customize the dresses if you need to as well by ordering them as a custom listing. If you are really tall or really short and need a custom length, that is totally something she can do. She also offers nursing friendly dresses! Guys, let’s just take a moment for THAT! [Read more…]

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…]

Wardrobe for fall without spending a fortune: Le Tote Review

I like updating the contents of my closet just as much as the next fashion loving girl does, but I can’t ever seem to be able to afford all of the pieces that I want each season. I usually end up settling for a few staple pieces that I know I can style in many ways, but I can’t help but think of the clothes that “got away” when I couldn’t afford everything I wanted. That is why I love the concept of Le Tote! If you haven’t ever heard of Le Tote before, it is a website that you submit your style profile and they choose items to send to you. You get to see everything they are going to send you so that if you want to switch something before they send it, you can. You can then wear everything they send you and you are given the option of purchasing anything they sent. Along with the items, they send a bag with a prepaid label to ship the items you aren’t interested in purchasing back to them.

When clothes just seem to speak your language

Do you ever have the experience of shopping in store or online and you just think to yourself, “That is SO me!” when you see an item? Honestly, it is one of my favorite parts about shopping! It doesn’t always happen, but when it does it is like pure bliss. That is how I feel about basically this entire outfit.

My American Dream

Something really beautiful about living the “American Dream” is the fact that everyone’s version of the American Dream is different. I would highly doubt that when our ancestors thought about the American Dream, the thoughts of staying at home and working while mothering children came to mind.

That is exactly what my American Dream is.

Styling the Levi’s 711 Skinny Jeans

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

I know I just told you about my quest to find the perfect jeans. At the end of my quest, I discovered that the Levi’s® 711 Skinny Jeans are officially some of the best jeans I have ever tried on! I absolutely loved the fit of every wash that I tried on, but I decided to go out of my comfort zone and get a light wash. I typically go for dark washes, but I wanted to try new things and go with the light wash that is distressed. I love them! I loved hearing your feedback about the outfit that I put together before when I first got back from Macy’s with them and it sounds like a lot of you have gone and tried these jeans on for yourself!

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.
