I was going to start by talking about the weather, but OMG WHY?? (It was cold, then it was warm, now it’s cold blah blah who cares).
Sorry ’bout that.
I do have a few fun links. Let’s talk about that instead:
I collaborated with Mom.me on an article about the Mom Fashion Bloggers to watch in 2013. This group of women are so inspiring – and range in ages from young 20’s to 50’s. I was beyond thrilled with the results. Check it out.
On that note….Kat from Does My Bum Look 40 In This? is discussing the oxford shoe trend and is attempting to find one that is actually comfortable without socks. The no-sock-comfort issue is exactly why I have yet to embrace the oxford trend, so I will await her results eagerly. (Also, if anyone has found the elusive no-sock oxford, please let me know!!)
Lena from Quality Rivets is doing a Friday fashion feature where she posts other blogger’s takes on a trend. Last week was camo, this week’s topic is sneakers. You may recognize a certain blogger in her lineup. Ahem.
Mom.me, BTW, has the best roundup I’ve EVER SEEN on clothing for tween boys. Seriously cool, on trend, and stuff boys would actually like to wear. Awesome.
The Denim Blog editors round up their favorite eight pairs of jeans. And these gals try on a lot of jeans.
Postpartum Mamas! MODG also did a jean round-up…but she’s looking for skinny jeans that work with, uh, a post-baby body. True to (hysterical) form, she’s got all the gory details here.
I just bought this shirt. It’s over-sized (ignore the model), comfy, a totally bizarre color combo, and on sale. But I think it works. You? (BTW – it’s called the “Split Hues Henley” by Splendid. I chose Mint.)
This weekend, I plan on making the healthy Super Bowl snack recipe Baked Zucchini Sticks found on The Weigand’s blog, and cleaning out my basement. Ya…ay?
A HUGE (HUGE HUGE!!) thank you to those who left comments on the hair post. We now have a mile-long list of styles to try. So AWESOME!! And I’ve been updating the post with your pics as I get them in. But we’re not the only ones with hair on the brain. Shopbop’s blog just featured some pretty gorg hair accessories. I kinda like the starfish, myself.
Lastly…start thinking about your fav make-up products. Reader Sara came up this killer idea: do an article about makeup, similar to our hair styling post. So. At the end of next week, I’ll pull together a little something-something on my favorites, and I’m hoping that you guys will once again play along. At this rate, we’ll all be gorgeous by Valentine’s Day.
