Way back nearly a month ago I participated in a style challenge with a bunch of other mommas on Instagram. I wanted to share the #7daysofstyle that me and my little guy participated in. I think it made him into a little style-hound though…. now he goes up to the mirror and plays with his hair!

Lately it has been a challenge for me to get dressed most days. I often opt for sleep rather than getting up and showering before my son’s very early waking hour. I wait until nap time to shower and change, unless I have work to finish. Embarrassingly often, I’ll still be unshowered and in my yoga pants until my husband gets home in the afternoon.
The idea behind me styling different pieces for the kiddo came from a styling project Lauren Hartmann, The Little Things We Do, did for her daughter on Instagram. She took 3 different clothing pieces and styled at least one of them into every outfit for 7 days.
I asked her if she minded that I totally copy her and do the same with my kiddo. I thought it would be a challenge to do something cute on a little boy and an excuse for me to get him out of his PJs everyday. She didn’t mind… as a matter of fact, she invited anyone to join in on #7daysofstyle on Instagram. I’m excited to be meeting moms of other little boys working with this challenge as well.
I love dressing my little man… I’ll be sad when he won’t let me choose his clothes anymore. Although, the way he likes ties/jackets/hats (he puts them on himself when running around the house in his diaper) I think he’ll probably continue to be pretty stylish.
This little outfit was what he wore to Thanksgiving dinner. He even kept his tie and jacket on for a majority of the evening.
I’ve discovered the awesomeness that are the Old Navy Rockstar skinny jeans. I’m not much for putting up style posts. I often feel silly when taking “style” photos. Haha… getting dressed daily is kind of a HUGE feat most days. But, these jeans have become my go-to pants and I felt like sharing.
The jeans come in a multitude of colors. They are super comfy and fit great…. that is, if you try them on. Each pair of mine are either a different size or different fit. I once ordered three in different colors, but the same size, and they all fit differently. I felt like goldilocks of pants.
So, while I recommend the jeans… I do also recommend going into the store and trying them on. Don’t even trust the fact that you have another pair in the same size.

I’ve been playing on Polyvore.com again! This time I was looking for festive outfits for holiday parties. These sets are ideal for a Christmas Cocktail Party, Holiday Open House, Work Party and New Years Eve Bash. Oh, and there might be one in there that inspires me for my Birthday! 😉
