Everyday Style

For optimal viewing gratification, please enjoy this video while perusing my post.

Everyday Style is the theme for the August Ahead of the Curve blogging collective. Instead of putting one look together and taking photos I figured I would just snag a bunch of images from my Instagram account that have been posted over the last month or so and this would give you a decent perspective of my Everyday Style. I find it very hard to describe my style; I think it is safe to say it's alternative, but it seems to be all over the map. It could be said that my Everyday Style has multiple personality disorder. I love hair colour, makeup and accessories which all lend themselves to a constant flow of new styles and looks on a regular basis. I rarely do casual and have been known to dress up just to clean the house or walk my kids to school. I have a hard time leaving the house without styling my hair and applying makeup which I find adds a lot to my overall style. If I do venture out without a full head-to-toe look I will always be hiding behind a pair of killer shades at the least.

Look One

A day at the spa with my girls and dinner at my in-laws.

 Look Two

Flea market shopping with my family and dinner out.

Look Three
A day crafting with my children at my in-laws.

 Look Four

 Thrift store shopping and a picnic with my kids.

 Look Five

 An afternoon at a local festival with the family.

Look Six
 Play day at the park with friends.

So as you can probably tell from my day to day activities, I'm pretty much your typical stay-at-home mama with a not so typical sense of style. I always try to look my best no matter if I'm taking the kids to the park or if I'm out to lunch with a friend. Life is too short and there are way too many beautiful things to wear for me to waste my days in yoga pants and a tee shirt. No hate if that's your thing, but it's just not for this Mama.

If you would like more information on any of the clothing, makeup, or accessories that I'm wearing in my photos please leave me a comment below. There were too many items for me to link them all in this post.
