Styling winter boots featuring KAMIK Boots

Recently we were invited to preview Kamik’s winter 2017-2018 boots. Kamik was super generous and outfitted the entire family for winter boots. I was super excited being that last year the control freak in me wouldn’t take the girls outside… I know.. bad mom. Although we haven’t had any accumulating snow so far this year, we decided to style up and break in our new boots. I really love a stylish boot, being that Minnesota weather is about 80% horrible. Any Minnesota gal can tell you that boots make up our wardrobe. If I could do it without getting weird looks […]

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017

It’s the most magical time of year!!! CHRISTMAS! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  If you have somehow missed this phenomenon in previous years, it’s when the Fall merchandise goes on sale the end of July! So not only do you get a preview of fall trends, but you get amazing deals on the upcoming season, not last season’s sad leftovers (aka the Half Yearly Sale.) We both were able to shop the sale early access sale with our Nordstrom cards, but it opens up to the public tomorrow (7/21).  A lot of the stuff did sell out, but they do restock […]

Zara Kids Haul

My Zara kids haul is not huge, but I love their stuff so much right now, I still had to share.  Specifically, their  artisan capsule collection has me dead, but I didn’t get too much from it because sometime I think I push my own monochrome style too much on my daughter, and let’s face it – babies are cute in colors! And when I say I got these, I actually mean I sent my MIL the links for everything and told her this is what Gigi wanted for her birthday. Dress: Zara $29.90 Also got this knit sweater  ($22.90) for fall, […]

Spring Fashion Trends 2017

2017 Spring Trends

2017 Spring Fashion Trends Yes, Its risky taking fashion advice from a mom from the midwest… I realize that Minnesota is hardly a hotbed of sartorial action. However I promise you, I do my homework. These are the trends I think will be big this Spring/Summer 2017. Shopping links in pictures. WESTERN The western trend is big this year in accessories… shoes and belts with the big buckles. Small or large, I love the look of a big buckle and I think its such a fun way to add hardware and shine that isn’t  jewelry to an outfit. The Inspiration: […]

Ok Baby Style – Hand Me Down Edition

The Ok Moms - Baby style

Hand Me Down Baby Style So thanks to Kelsey’s generosity and the fact that we perfectly timed having a baby girl a year and a half after she had two, half of Gigi’s wardrobe is hand-me-downs from the twins.  Funnily enough (wait, is funnily actually a word?), whenever we actually do buy stuff, half the time it’s stuff that Kelsey bought the girls too! We went to Scottsdale Quarter again, because we live in Arizona, where everything is gravel-y and brown.  Not the best for a baby that can’t walk yet.  The no walking thing, also makes it a little […]

Momstyle Pre-Spring Haul

The Ok Moms Spring Haul

Mom Daughter Pre-Spring 2017 Fashion Haul If I’m being honest ‘hauls’ are hard for me to organize. I buy constantly….little bits and pieces all the time. Ask my husband….its bad. That being said heres the items I’ve already purchased for Spring 2017. This bag from Zara. This is the ultimate ‘statement’ bag. Its giving major Chanel vibes with the tweed and the chain strap. Theres a subtle metallic silver woven into the tweed, and the denim color is gorgeous… its just amazing. All for a mere $40. Comes in a cream and black color way as well.

OK BABY STYLE

Ok toddler style – I’m back for another OOTD. We went and visited Amys Cupcake Shoppe in downtown Hopkins, and if you are local to the Minneapolis area… GO! I can’t say enough nice stuff about this place. The cupcakes are awesome, and I’m a tough critic… I usually hate the cupcake places people rave about ( I like to be difficult to please… obviously). I swear I have the unique ability to taste preservatives/chemicals in baked goods from miles away, Amy’s passed this test with flying colors. The best part about Amy’s is this cute play area. I had […]

OK BABY STYLE

I can’t let Danielle have all the fun…. these are our ‘Outfits of the day’ today. Kid style can be tricky, I want my kids to look cool but I also know they are going to possibly lay down on the floor of the mall in their clothes for a good ole fashion tantrum, or smash fries into their fur vests (happened today). It may seem like an exercise in futility dressing your child in ‘outfits’ instead of just whatever is easy, but it doesn’t have to be! I don’t go to many boutiques because HELLO I have TWO to dress. It […]

Clearance zara baby style

I’ve loved baby style long before I was ever a mom. (I’m kind of weird.) Before I ever got pregnant, I fantasied of dressing up my future daughter like Alexander Wang’s niece.  I mean, have you seen her?? Now that I actually do have a little girl, reality is here to tell me that if I can’t afford to buy myself a Chanel boy bag, my baby sure as hell isn’t getting one.  In fact, if we don’t leave the house, I rarely change her out of her pajamas.  The other day, I even became the mom I always said […]

Momstyle: Poshmark review

So shopping has always been a huge part of my life because I’m a shallow person. Also because I model my life after Cher from clueless… who doesn’t want to be Cher from clueless?! Just me? oh ok… moving on.. Shopping after having kids has become more of a guilt trip than a pleasure cruise. I know I’m not alone on that. In a past life, I never batted an eyelash at four figure handbags…I’m gross and I know this isn’t endearing at all. I regularly gave away items from my closet with tags still attached (see? I’m not so […]
