Good morning! Today Jo-Lynne and I are launching a 5-part series on casual outfit for moms. Basically, it’s outfits we wear as busy moms (and in my case, a grandmother).
We’re starting off with skinny jeans, a pullover, and a scarf. That’s pretty typical of what I like to wear but we a except I typically wear boots this time of year. I also like to wear shoes with a heel.
I know many of you live in warmer states and flats work for you so I wanted to style something besides boots.
I purchased these Payless flats before Christmas and I wanted to style them with an outfit. They’re neutral so they pretty much go with everything.
The difficult part of styling winter outfits in January, is everything is sold out. It’s a little frustrating. My scarf is sold out online. My crewneck pullover is online in three colors (except mine). I actually love the colors they have online, bright and cheery!
I recently read that three bracelets are a good number to wear with all your outfits. They mainly said, like decorating rules, odd numbers are best. So I guess one, three, five, etc.
Some of you have asked about the curls in my hair. I’m using a curling wand and I’ll try to show some pictures of how I do it soon. It’s easy to do but I have burned my fingers a couple of times. Ha!
Well, we are definitely divided on distressed jeans. After reading your comments from yesterday’s post, some of you love them and some of you don’t! This is about as distressed as I get when it comes to jeans.
What I’m Wearing
Crew Neck Pullover(I’m wearing a medium)//Old Navy Scarf (sold out)//Skinny Jeans (I’m wearing a size 6)//Flats//Earrings//Watch (similar here)//Chain Bracelet//Kate Spade Bracelet//David Yurman Bracelet

Beauty for the Heart~~I am not a huge fan of winter. Cold, dreary days get old quick. But this quote from Richard Foster reminds me that winter can be a season of growing.
“Winter preserves and strengthens a tree. Rather than expending its strength on the exterior surface, its sap is forced deeper and deeper into its interior depth. In winter, a tougher, more resilient life is firmly established. Winter is necessary for the tree to survive and flourish.”
Although I don’t love winter, I think I need winter. It’s a great time for me to dig deep into scripture and let my faith grow.
Colossians 2:7 says, Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
Winter prepares me for the year ahead!
Have a blessed day!
