Dress, purse and earrings from Dad’s Primitive Workbench

It’s just about summertime folks! Kids are getting out of school this week and summer break starts. You know what that means! Summer wardrobe is in full-swing.  I personally love clothing that is kid-friendly. That means my hiney isn’t hanging out and neither are the sweater cows (as I call them) are out for the world to see.😜

Dress, earrings and purse from Dad’s Primitive Workbench

I like to wear dresses when it’s hot because it’s a much more breezy feel and sometimes it’s easier to find appropriate lengths than it is shorts.

 

 

This next top is from Dad’s Primitive Workbench and I love it because it can be worn three different ways. Here are two ways that I paired with my own shorts and feel are an appropriate length for playing with the kiddos too. The third way I’ll show you in just a bit 😘

This next dress is PERFECT for a day date or even out to lunch with the family. It’s an appropriate length and cute with a side of flirty 😁

Surprise!! I have a little partner-in-crime for this second part😁 Meet Sydney from Dad’s Primitive Workbench. She helps out at the shop and is always full of cheer. She makes you feel good about yourself and is always smiling. She looks super cute in their clothes too 😜 All of her looks, including jewelry and shoes are from Dad’s Primitive Workbench.

I styled Sydney so you could see a different face wearing some cute fashions. Remember I said the striped top I had on could be worn three different ways? Well here’s the third way and in a different color.

Next, I had Sydney wear this cute white number with the ties on the sleeve. Super cute and easy to wear! I paired the blush toned fringe earrings to match the fringe on the sandals.

Lastly, I loved this blue top and denim on Sydney along with the sandals. Loved mixing the blues and adding a warm tone. The tassels in the earrings paired nicely with the top and stuck with the theme. The necklace helped tie in the dark gray in the tassel earring as well.

So for this month Charlie and I have decided to do something new. If you didn’t know already, I actually offer in-home wardrobe consulting. This service can work a few different ways. One of which is me creating a Style Board for you. That means I chat with you about your style goals and create an inspiration board for you when it comes time for you to go shopping.  I’ll share different resources on where you can shop to get the looks as well as explain what to look for and why it works for you.  Below are a few different examples of style boards I have put together that were pertinent to that specific client. For this service I typically charge $20.00 if that’s the only service you need from me.

 

 

So for this month’s partnership with Dad’s Primitive Workbench you can use promo code: RANDOM30 at his shop to get 30% off one boutique item and you can enter to win a free Style Board from yours truly on both my and Dad’s Primitive Workbench’s Instagram and Facebook pages; @randomosity740 and @dads_primitive_workbench 😁This offer expires on 6/22/19 so make sure and stop in soon!

How to Feed Your Baby in Public

fashion

 

Step One:

8AD0DF4C-8C4C-4162-A4D8-6C4E72B0011B

Pick up your baby.

 

Step Two:

 

F8742956-F822-4559-8513-A8D74BB11400

Wear something that’s conducive for breastfeeding. Or don’t🤷🏼‍♀️ it’s your choice. Although, I highly recommend wrap dresses because they’re super cute and easy to maneuver for cases such as these. Also, don’t forget to put on lipstick for the next photos because you’re a classy chick like that 😂😂

Step Three:

EB8F6FA3-6C8D-48AC-8C0E-B90A31C38F18

Nurse your babe wherever you feel comfortable because your babe is hungry! Or bottle-feed that babe with breast milk or formula, just whatever you do feed the dang thing! He’s hungry 😆  Think like Dr. Seuss…Would you feed him on a boat? Would you feed him in a box? Would you feed him next to a fox? (I probably wouldn’t do that but hey, to each his own). Either way, just feed your baby. Have I stressed that enough? 😂

Step Four:

Hold your baby afterward to make him feel secure and don’t forget to burp that baby.

I’ll still never understand the controversy behind nursing in public. I get where some people might feel uncomfortable with it but you’re legitimately feeding a child so that it doesn’t starve and die! If we weren’t feeding the child and they were screaming and crying, people would complain about a crying baby🤷🏼‍♀️. Bottom line? Do what you gotta do to keep your baby happy and don’t worry about what others think.

Your Faithful Dreamer,
