3 Easy Steps to Fabulous Fashion

“You look so fashionable!” 

I looked over my shoulder to see if they were talking to someone else. I have been called many things in my life, but fashionable was never on the list. I made a resolution with my husband this year for us both to become more fashionable.

Top three things I discover while trying to dress fashionably!!

My long hair when I first met my hubbie!
#1 Know your limits... I am not someone who is willing to spend 45 minutes on my hair in the morning... I used to have gorgeous long hair... I would always get compliments when I would wear it down... about 1x month. Now I have a cute short haircut. I wear my hair down way more often... For me wearing my hair down and short is way cuter than long but always up in a ponytail.

Life with baby = Five minute cute casual look for a wedding!

#2 Try new things... I have been using the same blush and lip gloss for years... The result. I look great right when I put it on but it fades within a hour or two. I have been reading the Small Things Blog for great ideas on hair and fashion and I discovered a new favorite lip stick... and it works! I can put it on in the morning and it last until lunch... and then redo at lunch and it lasts the rest of the day!

#3 Bust out of your comfort zone... I laid my clothes out and realized that everything I owned was pink... and while I love pink (and hate black) sometimes mixing it up is the best thing to do. I starting realizing looking at Pinterest boards that black can make a really nice base for outfits... allowing the color to really pop. Now my black sundresses are some of my favorites. They are very slimming and my color accents really stand out.

How do you stay fashionable? Do you have any helpful tips?


  1. Everything comes to this how you feel!If you feel good will looks amazing!This work with me!

  6. Thank you Laura! I am trying :) My blog photos have helped me change up my outfits a lot.

  7. If you are worried with your short height, try not to wear loose and eccentric ladies clothes. Short skirts give you some extra inches. Even the proper hairstyle can helps in looking taller. Prefer wearing tight sweaters or a short jacket instead of overcoats or big jackets.
