Fierce OOTD: Rocking Two Trends At Once

Spring Trends

I have to admit, I’ve been a bit uninspired lately when it comes to my wardrobe.    I guess I’m still getting used to the drastic lifestyle change I’ve been going through.  I went from the 9 to 5 married lady office job to a stay-at-home freelancing mom.  All of my go-to outfits just don’t fit my life right now, my black trousers collecting some serious dust.  Anything that has to be dry cleaned is out of the question and I even had to cut back on my jewelry ware (the princess has way too much fun with them at my expense!)  Needless to say my personal style is going through some major changes and I’m still trying to figure in the fashion I love while being practical at the same time.

{Oversized Plaid Shirt: Rainbow; Pink Tank top: Ecko; Blue Jeans: WalMart; Black Sneakers: Reebok}

So in the meantime,  I’m left to jazzing up my casual wear. You can’t go wrong with layering, which puts my bright colored tanks to good use.  This hot pink one I scored at the Ecko Outlet was perfect, the racerback more appropriate for working out then for a day out.  I pulled this oversized shirt I hadn’t worn in awhile and when I threw it on I got the idea to tie it.  Don’t know why I hadn’t thought of it before!  it does a great job hiding this mommy belly.  I also didn’t realize I was wearing two the latest trends at the same time – Neon and black and white.  Double score!

{Long Cross Necklace: Forever 21; Pink Cloth Earrings: Forever 21; Pink Bracelets: Old}

As for accessories, I also wanted to wear some oldies I hadn’t worn in awhile.  The cross necklace gave me the little edge this mom needed while the stretchy bracelets and earrings plaid off the pink for some more pops of color.  The shoes – yeah the heels stayed home on this one!  Besides, I wanted to show my Reeboks some love!

 

Have you ever had to do a major wardrobe overhaul due to a life change?  How did you deal with it?
