Mixing Style: Spring Floral + Combat Boots

Despite my reservations, I've decided to start incorporating more fashion into my blog. Not only will it inspire me to dress up more frequently (as a mom of a toddler, any excuse is a good one) but I also want to create a place for others to find modest fashion inspiration. I am constantly looking to other bloggers for a positive influence, and I would love to be a part of the fashion community in this way. Plus, I have an awesome husband who is willing to be my photographer.
I love this dress and want to fill my closet with others like it. The cut is modest, yet flattering and the floral print is pretty, which makes me feel pretty.  

I decided to pair it with skinny yoga pants (they make the best, comfiest leggings in my opinion), a belt, minimal gold and pearl jewelry, and combat-style boots to mix it up a little. 
Oh! And some bright pink lipstick. 
I'm loving all of the fun, flirty lip colors on the market right now. 
These boots are one of my absolute favorites. They pair well with everything from floral dresses to jeans and a t-shirt. They have a small heel to give a little boost to those (like me) who are vertically challenged, yet they're still ridiculously comfortable.
These earrings remind me of something straight out of Madmen. 
This is why I love them. 
An outfit like this works well for those of us with busy lifestyles, such as a mom on the go.   
And the best part? The skirt is perfect for twirling.

    1. Thank you! I doubt that. I bet you could rock some neon pink lips :) I know what you mean though. There are some trends that I like so much on others, but I just don't feel like I can pull it off.

  7. So Cute! I need to make an effort to dress cute... I'm pretty sure I've been wearing the same t-shirt two days in a row. I accidentally deleted the email with your comment on my last post, but I just am letting you know that I did facial yoga two days and my face is sore so I think it's working...although I still don't look like I have had a facelift or anything so I'm not satisfied bahaha

    1. Thank you! Haha that's how I usually am, but I'm making an effort to try (which is why blogging about it will keep me motivated). As for the face yoga, that's awesome! Haha! I seriously want an update on your results. If it works for you, I'm sold.

    1. Thanks! I learned the trick when I was pregnant because yoga pants = a pregnant girl's best friend. Now I can't go back, the thick waistband is too comfy.

  9. A willing and talented husband, you are a lucky girl!! And a dress' ability to twirl is the most important quality in my book ;)

    1. I know, right? I really am so lucky. And I'm glad we agree on the twirl factor, not everyone understands how imperative it really is :)
