Fashion Finds For Less! Why I Shop for Less!

Image
Hey, hey fellow blog readers!  It has been a minute for me on the keyboard typing away my thoughts and passions!  Life gets crazy busy at times, and I just have to remind myself that sitting at my computer(yes, I still sit at an actual desktop computer) typing about the things I enjoy, this is my happy place!  It is my time away from the world, my kids, my husband, and it is the time I have to blog about the many great things I find in this life of style and fashion!

Recently, I have been finding some really cute clothes at a few of my favorite resale shops and discount stores!  Let me start by reminding those that already follow my blog, those new to y blog, and those just stopping by because my social media plat forms provided my link for you to visit my site, that I don't mind and have never said I wouldn't buy used clothing and accessories!  On the contrary, and like I've said before, I don't wearing gently used or new with tags if someone doesn't want them!  I…

Neutrals for Spring into Summer 2019!

Image
I know, I know, I've told you all that neutrals are a big trend for Spring and the start of Summer!  But let me show you the options!  So the cream striped blazer and shorts I am wearing below are A New Day from Target!  They sold out online, but if you are lucky, you may find them at your local Target!  Or wait and see if they become available!  But don't miss out, Ive linked some options for you all!

Linen Blazer and short sets can be styled with pumps, ankle strap heels, wedge sandals, and flat sandals!  You can add a straw bag and hat, or a bamboo wooden bag with a nice hat!  The options are endless!  Since the set I am wearing pictured below isn't available online, I have linked some similar ones for you all!

You can wear it like I did with a crop top, a tank top, a silk cami, or a v-neck tee!  Style it to your liking and comfort level!

The Mock Neck Embroidered Boho Top!

Image
This week, I've styled my Laundry by Shelly Segal mock neck embroidered boho top with mini flare denim!  The boho style top was a Neiman Marcus Last Call sale just under $50!  The STS Blue mini flare denim were on clearance marked down 65% and through this Sunday, and additional 40% is taken off at the register!  I paid under $10.00 for them!  Be sure to check your local Dillard's for major mark downs on a lot of denim!  I am some of my favorites below!
The outfit was styled with chunky block heel mules which I was able to purchase at my local Payless during their final sale!  They are Christian Siriano!  I sure am going to miss his brand at Payless, I am going to miss Payless period!




What I love about this boho inspired top, is that you can styled it with boot cut, mini flare, wide-leg, or skinny ankle jeans and it is just that versatile!  I will definitely be styling it with denim cut off shorts for Summer!  I will link this top below too!  For a loose comfortable fit, I siz…

Neon Blazers I am Loving!

Image
This Season has so many beautiful colors, vibrant colors!  And I loved pairing my neon blazer with neutrals and leopard print!  This Season is all about the animal prints as I have told y'all in blog posts before and paired with neon brights gives that outfit life!
The styled look I put together was effortless but came to life with that neon blazer!  The blazer was a score for just under $30 at a vintage boutique, the leopard print blouse is from Target (I've had this for a few months), the high waist denim are Jennifer Lopez from my local Kohls (from a few Season's ago) and the nude pumps are also from a few years ago at my local Macy's Backstage!  Mixing old pieces with boutique finds!
I've linked my favorite neon blazers, high waist denim, and nude heels for you to have options should you want to shop this look!

The Maxi Dress for SS2019!

Image
Well hello y'all!!!  I am so sorry to be gone from my blog for some time!  Some days, life gets busy and I have my kiddos and nephew to care for along with husband, two dogs, and everything else that comes with motherhood!  But please don't stop coming by and reading your dose of "chictostreetstylemom's" style favorites, trends, sales, and so forth!  I hope to keep coming to my blog and posting for you all more often!

With that said, how many of my mom's will be living in light stretchy maxi dresses this Spring and Summer?! Especially because they are the most comfortable, so light, and they are the easiest to style!  And thanks to a style blogger I have been following for some time, Dani Austin, I have found the cutest and most comfiest casual maxi dress!  And it comes in a huge variety of colors and prints!  Best of all, it is under $23.00! 

Now, I'll be totally honest, I have ordered clothing from Amazon before, and I was upset the sizing was way way …

The Spring Blazer Print that's Hot: Styled 3 Ways!

Image
Happy Wednesday!  Here we are in March already, I don't know about you all, but this 2019 has started quite fast and before you know it Summer will be here!  I mean, my kids are already going to be out for Spring Break next week, eek!  Can time slow down please!  So, Texas weather has been so bipolar lately!  We go from 65-70 degree weather to low 30's the next day!  We keep out coats out and Summer clothes at the same time!  Honestly, I love wearing Winter coats and boots, but not more than I love Spring and Summer dresses, skirts, short sets, etc...

I've recently also blogged several times about a print that has taken the Fall 2018 into possibly Spring and Summer 2019 by storm!  And that is, the snakeskin print!  Yes, like I've said before, from accessories to clothing, this print is HOT, HOT, HOT right now!  And honestly, it doesn't look like it is going anywhere for Spring and Summer 2019, and I'm totally okay with it!  Especially, when I've scored on s…

My Recent Spring Looks Linked!

Okay, so, I have been having trouble finding products on my LikeToKnowIt App, so because I've had several ask about my recent denim finds at my local Kohls, I am linking them below!

I will be all about distressed denim, blazers, light trench coats, dusters, and open toe heels this Spring!  What products I cannot link on my LikeToKnowIt App, I will have direct links on my blog!  Thanks so much for your continued support, love, and kind comments on my social medial handles for the outfits I style!  This is all for you ladies, so I can inspire and give you ideas!

The Prints On Trend Right Now and Style Tips!

Image
The snake print or the python print, what do you call it?  The leopard or cheetah print? These prints are all over the fashion industry right now!  From shoes, belts, handbags, hair accessories, to clothing, it is everywhere and it doesn't show signs of dying anytime soon!

So, how do I style these prints and what can I do so my styled look doesn't get over taken by the print, well, I would style it subtly or make it pop!  There is such a thing as too much of the same print!  If you choose to do the trendy print entirely, I would suggest top and bottom and the shoes and accessories can be different so it doesn't look like you took the entire animal's print! Get it, ha ha!

What I love about this print, is it can transition into Spring by adding pops of pretty corals, brights, and pastels making it a perfect look for Spring!  Remember that trends come and go all the time, so don't go spending all your coins on a current leopard print or python print piece that you may…

My Top Five Reason's to Shop Resale & Thrift Stores!

Image
Hi there!  I hope this start of 2019 has everyone feeling great, accomplishing goals from the smallest tasks to the most difficult ones!  You can do this!  January seemed like the longest start of the year for me!  And I am ready for February to be quick and painless! 

Today's blog post, I discuss resale shopping and thrifting!  As you all know (for my new readers, I'll tell again) I love a good bargain!  I love dressing up for less, way way less!  All while looking expensive and on trend with my resale and thrift finds!  Don't get me wrong, I do splurge from time to time and buy the regular price item or accessory, but it has to be on my I really want list!  But for the most part, I will shop straight clearance racks, resale shops, and thrift stores!  Hey, I have amazing luck, most of the time I get items new with tags or almost not worn, probably once or twice!  All I do is rewash or laundry drop off if its not machine washable and I hand dry them all!

I also find clothi…

Styling Your Skirts in Winter!

Image
Hello Babes:

I hope you all are having a wonderful week!  This week's blog post is giving you inspo and tips when styling those skirts for winter, especially short skirts "mini's"!  This year short skirts have been an absolute favorite of mine, you probably noticed that already if you follow my social media accounts!  Well, because you see, this Mama still loves to rock those short skirts!  But some days, we have cold weather in Texas, and by cold I mean low 40's!  So, if I wear a short skirt, I usually like to either wear thick stalkings or a nice big coat to keep me warm!

You can choose to style these skirts with over the knee boots or ankle boots to give you different types of looks!  And you can wear a high or low heel, a block or stiletto heel, there are so many styles for us all!  Styling skirts in winter is all up to you and how comfortable you feel wearing them!  I am in the southern part of the U.S. so we don't get the harsh winters that the North an…

Self Care in 2019! Health, Workouts, and Workout Gear!

Image
Every year, everyone decides to make resolutions.  Working out more, eating healthier, and investing in all this workout equipment and gear!  But how long do folks honestly truly go before they give up?  The average person's "New Year, New Me" only lasts about a month before giving up!  Yes, that means that a month into the resolution, there is losing focus, time lacks, and many other reasons.  So what can we do to not lose focus?  Well, let me begin with my experiences and story!  As you all know, I am a stay-at-home mother of four, ages 16, 9, 7, and 6!  Three boys and one girl!  I have always been an active mom, but within the last seven months, it has become very difficult for me to find the time nor energy to sneak in workouts! I used to go to Zumba classes every morning at 9:00 a.m. right after dropping three kids off to school and taking the youngest boy with me!  He would do amazing, he would sit for the whole entire hour while Mommy got her sweat on!  Then we…
