STYLE THAT BUMP…..Maternity Chic!

Maternity Chic
Properly Stylish While Pregnant…..Absolutely!
Pregnancy is such an amazing experience. While it is amazing, you don’t always feel so amazing. Can I get an “Amen!!!” from all of the mama’s out there! 🙂 You are certainly not in control of most of the changes going on with your body. What you are in control of is how you Style That Bump!!!
Feeling stylish while pregnant can feel like a lot of work. Most momma’s do not want to splurge on a new maternity wardrobe…..and understand! But there are a few essentials plus accessories that can take you from work to play looking very Maternity Chic!
A great pair of maternity jeans are worth investing in.  You can pair them with jersey tops, then throw over a cardigan (doesn’t have to button up or be maternity wear).   Adding a necklace that makes a statement will dress up a more casual outfit.   A fabulous handbag and a pair of amazing ballet flats will finish your outfit.
Another great investment is a stylish jersey dress that will stretch as your baby grows.   You can dress it up with more glamorous jewels, or wear it around and about with fun accessories.  A cute pair of flat shoes or boots will keep you comfortable and still looking Properly Stylish.
Pregnancy is the time to indulge in pampering yourself! It is amazing how putting on a great ensemble will make you feel!
Put a Little Style in Everything You Do…..Especially While Pregnant!
B. Blessed!

The Sweater….the Most Versatile Fall Clothing Item!

When you think of Fall/Winter, of course we think of comfy sweaters! I will admit when I hear the word, “Sweater” I immediately think of horrible holiday sweaters! Let’s not fall victim to “that” trend. Instead, let’s make sweaters stylish!

When it comes to comfy sweaters, you can never have enough! They are warm and they go with everything in your closet!

Head to the office in your “Preppy Chic” sweater look by layering it with a button up, great fitting slacks and eye catching accessories. This look is a bonus for all of you who’s office temperature is equivalent to Alaskan temperatures! Warm and Stylish….I love it!

Give the dresses in your closet an new life by adding a sweater and belt! This look also allows you to bring Spring/Summer weight dresses into the fall! An amazing tip that allows you to stretch your wardrobe across seasons.

Cable Knit Sweater with a Maxi Skirt for an amazing evening look? Absolutely! I love this look! It’s stylish, fashion forward and unexpected! Pay close attention to the length of your sweater. It should fall right along the hips. If the sweater is too long, it will cause you to look bulky and frumpy. We do not like those words when it comes to describing your look!

I love “All you can eat,” long sweaters! I coined this phrase for clothing that allows you to fully enjoy a feast without showing your full stomach! 🙂 Pair these sweaters with skinny jeans or legging and a great pair of boots!

Run your errands, but dress stylish while doing it! This fun, little off the shoulder number will do just the trick!

……And DO accessorize!

Men, you to can enjoy this look! Pair a great sweater with slacks or jeans!

I love a DIY Project! Choose a sweater from your closet, select faux leather in a metallic from your fabric store, and sew patches on the elbows of your sweater!                       LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

Simple, Easy and Properly Stylish!

Mini Face Lift in a Bottle!

 As an actress, I have to have great skin 100% of the time….and as a woman, I want great skin 100% of the time! I am starting to get fine lines and wrinkles. While these lines do add character, I want to get a head start on time and prevent as many of those “character” lines as I can….or at least soften their appearance!

For the last month I have been testing out a new product that promises to reduce the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles in just 3 days! That promise made me very excited!

ANEW CLINICAL PRO LINE ERASER TREATMENT with A-F33 (Amino Fill 33)

With technology inspired by Nobel Prize winning research, this innovative breakthrough wrinkle fighter is perfect for anyone with fine lines or deep wrinkles! It is formulated with   A-F33, an exclusive ingredient that is unlike AHA, unlike Retinol and unlike injectable collagen. It works to deactivate collagen blockers and help effectively boost collagen production in just 3 days! Wow!!! Now that is my kind of product!

I started using it immediately! I certainly didn’t have anything to lose, but wrinkles! I will admit, I was a bit of a skeptic. As day 3 approached, I began to notice the wrinkles on my forehead were not as deep and the fine lines under my eyes had began to soften! I was thrilled, to say the least! I know longer have to be nervous about getting in front of those HD Cameras! 🙂  This is the kind of product I can not keep all to myself! I know most women are constantly looking for ways to have youthful looking skin, so I had to share my great find!

The best thing about this Anew product….You do not have to go under the knife or get a painful skin peel to see results and see them quickly!

This product is only available through Avon. Lucky for you, I am an Avon Consultant! The Pro Line Eraser will be available in September 2012 for $39.99! For those of you who do not want to wait, I will be offering an early bird special! Contact me ASAP to order yours for $34.99, before it is available to the masses.  I only have a couple to offer, so act fast! First come, first served! If you miss out, not to worry! I will be taking Pre-Orders for the Pro Line Eraser! This offer is not available on line yet!

I absolutely love this product and hope you will too!

Don’t forget to message me ASAP to get your Pro Line Eraser!

Stylish Pant, Stylish Price!!!

I LOVE shopping for pretty much anything! Sometimes my shopping habits tend to get me in a little trouble. If you put me in a room full of items, hide the price tag and designer labels….I will, without fail pick out the most expensive items in the store!!! Some may call that quality a flaw. I like to think I have a very keen eye for FABULOUS things! 🙂

I have been on the hunt for great pants to carry me through every season. Tall order? Not for me! I have found a couple of pant styles that are great in cut, color, fabric, design……AND……PRICE!!! Victoria’s Secret loves to put merchandise on sale and I love to take advantage of those sales!

VS Siren Legging Pant…..Part Jean, Part Legging! It is available in Sweetheart Pink and Black and they are on sale for $19.99 from $49.50! I ordered a pair in Black. I can dress these pants up with one of the 100’s of blouses in my closet or dress them down with a cute cotton t-shirt! These are a must have for all seasons!

http://www.victoriassecret.com/clearance/pants-and-shorts/vs-siren-legging-pant?ProductID=67392&CatalogueType=CLR

VS – The Kate Flare Pant! I love this pant! It is a cotton/spandex blend, which allows for stretching and is very comfy. It is fitted through the thigh with a flared leg and comes in many different colors. I made a bold choice and ordered a pair in crimson red to support my favorite college football team, Alabama (insert Rammer Jammer anthem here)  and carry me through the holiday season! What I love most about these is the price…..$16.99 from $49.50! What???? That’s ridiculous….in the best way! 🙂

http://www.victoriassecret.com/clearance/suiting/the-kate-flare-pant?ProductID=43442&CatalogueType=CLR

VS – The Sofie Straight Leg Pant! Another great option that falls in between a skinny leg and flared leg. This pant also comes in great colors! Priced at $19.99 from $69.50 makes this pant a great buy…..geeeeez but 2 or 3 pairs!

http://www.victoriassecret.com/clearance/suiting/the-sofie-straight-leg-pant?ProductID=70218&CatalogueType=CLR

You definitely need to act fast if you want to take advantage of these amazing pants! The prices are too amazing for them to hang around long. I really hope these finds inspire you to invest in yourself! Many times, women are spending so much time putting their family, friends and careers first, they forget about themselves! Or, maybe money is tight and there is no room in the budget for a wardrobe splurge. I am a momma and wife on a budget and the above finds not only helped me stay within my budget, but they allowed me to create looks for myself that I can be confident in and proud of……and that is priceless!

Remember to Put the Proper Style in Everything you do!

Breakfast for Dinner….Why, Yes Please!

Breakfast for Dinner is very Stylish!

Who doesn’t love breakfast food….especially when it’s for dinner?  In my home, breakfast for dinner is a great treat! One of our family favorites is pancakes! While I love them, the mommy and wife in me recognizes they are not filled with nutrition. So, I came up with my own pancake recipe and added some healthy ingredients. I should note that I very rarely follow a recipe. My momma taught me to “add a little bit of this and a little bit of that!” Feel free to do the same! 🙂

Cinnamon and Oatmeal Pancakes!

Ingredients you will need:

3/4 cup milk

2 tablespoons white vinegar

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons white sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon sugar

2 tablespoons cinnamon

2 cups old fashioned oats

1 egg

2 tablespoons butter, melted

cooking spray

**You can use a store bought pancake batter if you would like and add cinnamon and oats

Directions

  1. Combine milk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to “sour”.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, oats, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk egg and butter into “soured” milk. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side.

 

Presenting a meal can be done in a very stylish way…..after all, presentation is everything! If you are feeling fancy, prepare those pancakes in fun shapes! For this meal, I made my pancakes in the shape of a heart! Garnish with a strawberry, honey, confectioners sugar and serve! Who doesn’t love fancy pancakes??

Stella and Dave absolutely love them and I hope your family does too!

Put a little Style in Everything You Do….Even in the Kitchen! 🙂

Blessings!

Jean Shirt Come Back….Take 2

Based on your reactions, I’d say you guys are loving the Jean Shirt Trend! I am definitely ready to run out and find a Jean Shirt, myself!

The Jean Shirt is fabulous for fall! This ensemble will definitely be my “go to” comfy, but chic outfit! Grab your skinny jeans, favorite boots, accessories galore, and don’t forget that Jean Shirt! This is a great and easy look to pull together with items you already have in your closet!

Accessorize your Jean Shirt! Adding a statement necklace is a great way to take this trend to the next level!

A DIY project for your Jean Shirt!

Add Studs (you can get these at any fabric or craft store) to the collar or cuffs for an edgy look! I love DIY projects….they put the power in your hands to show off your unique style!

Have fun rocking this trend….with the PROPER STYLE, of course!

B. Blessed!

Attention Everyone…..The Jean Shirt is Making a Comeback!!!

ATTENTION EVERYONE…..The Jean Shirt is Making a Comeback!!!

Finally, one of our old favorites is a fashion Yes Ma’am, again! …..And yes, I would absolutely wear a denim shirt with a full tulle skirt (minus that belt)! Maybe I’ll rock this look when my husband and I renew our wedding vows….Southern Chic Ya’ll 🙂

There are some Do’s and Don’ts to this look, we need to discuss. We can not have you running around in a jean shirt trend “No Ma’am,” now can we? 🙂

Absolutely pair your jean shirt with great, tailored trousers! Make sure both items fit well. If your clothing is too large for your frame, it can leave you looking bigger than you are. Neutral colors are a great choice when selecting your trousers, but don’t be afraid to make a bold statement with fun colors!

Effortless and Chic….Love it!

This look is fun and feminine! A little step down from the full tulle wedding skirt, I love so much. 🙂  Pull out those fun dresses and skirts, because we are going to give them a whole new look! Add the jean shirt to a full skirt and belt at the waist. You can use the same idea with a dress, by tying a knot in the shirt at the waistline. Leave a couple of buttons unbuttoned to allow the top of the dress to peek through. …….And, don’t for get to add great shoes and accessories to finish off the look!

Make it casual by adding a comfy tee and leaving the jean shirt unbuttoned……So easy and stylish!

I have not forgotten about you, gentlemen! You too can sport this trend! Keep it clean and simple by layering. A printed tee adds a little interest, while the jean shirt and khaki pant keep it casual. Pay close attention to the fit of these items. This look can go from a Do to a Don’t if the clothing is baggy!

Is the Jean Shirt Trend appropriate for the work place? Absolutely…. when paired with dress slacks and a blazer! A gentlemen wearing this outfit is definitely someone I want to conduct business with!

Feeling confident you can pull off this look? I hope so! Things to Remember: Select a Jean Shirt that fits you well and it can be dressed up or down with slacks, a dress, a skirt or skinny jeans.

Have Fun and put the Proper Style in Everything You Do!

B. Blessed,

Wendy
