Hairstyle tips

I thought this was a great article about hair styles for women in their 30's. I particularly like the point of NOT going too short in your 30's because it could age you. I agree. I'm taking the next 4 yrs to grow my hair out again, before I turn 30.

Check out the tips here:

Riding Boots

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE riding boots. I think they are the number one foot wear for the winter for SAHM...why? They are flat, you can carry your purse, diaper bag and baby, with toddler in hand and NOT worry about breaking an ankle. YIPPEE...

Also, RIDING BOOTS are CUTE! They are super stylish...super fun...and weather proof, or can be with some scotch guard.

Check out some cute styles and remember to match your hair color if you can afford only 1 pair:

Essential List #25 (Part 1- Summer going into Fall skirts)

For a minimalistic wardrobe, which is what I include on my Essentials List for Women, is 1 summer skirt and 1 winter skirt.

Ideally, your winter skirt will keep you warm, and the summer one will be cool and breezy.


Here are so suggestions for nice skirt per season per body type:

Summer(warm Fall) Skirts:

For a Pear shaped Woman-


Look at the Picture of the Skirt in Navy blue, with the high waist.

The high waist will accentuate a small waist. The brown top next to it is perfect for highlighting shoulders to look more broad, and to giving some more filler to a flatter chest. The other top it good too. (wear them tucked in to the skirt)

For a body shape with a TUMMY:


Look at the Tan leather skirt and the white blouse, if they both hit the hip area, they will be perfect to pair together. Of course, keeping the skirt long enough and the tops at the hop bone are important factors.

For a BUSTY body type:

Check out the blush top and neutral skirt. Pairing neutrals is really in style, and it's fun. The skirt is more full so this body type can creat some curves below without looking bulky and the top is a v-neck, which is a nice shape on a busty gal!


The HOURGLASS body type:
The pleated skirt and peacock print top would be a great loose,relaxed style on a slim hourglass figure.
