Outfit of the Day

I thought it would be fun to share another OOTD!

Running errands and then out to a friends house, later.


Rockstar Skinny Jeans from Old Navy

Katy Perry Tee from American Eagle

I really like how the Tee is long enough to somewhat cover my bottom

I’m wearing simple silver and black jewelry
And a ‘nude’ face with Benefit Cosmetics on my eyes, Lorealparis TrueMatch Lumi on my face, Benefit Rockstar Blush (noticing a theme, here? 😉 and Bite Beauty tinted lip balm in ‘Lychee’.

<I'm also wearing my new favorite daytime mascara Maybelline Mega Plump in Blackest Black

I started out with my hair down, but it inevitably ends up like this

Thanks for visiting!

P.S. Just in case you don’t already follow me on Instagram and missed my recent P.S.A….

Never let your Bite Beauty Lip Balm get left in your car on a hot day, and then open it to see if it’s okay.
You’re welcome 😘

How to Wear Animal Prints

I just wanted to pop on here, quickly, to encourage you!

If you are wanting to include more animal prints in your wardrobe, but not sure how, layer them!!


I really like this top! And it was a steal for $2.50 at a BOGO 1/2 off clearance sale. Deb has those often.

I prefer to dress a little more conservatively so I’ve learned I can still wear wild little tops like this one, if I layer it!

I love how the back has a little tail! Just enough to cover my backside when I have to bend over or squat. So cute!

And just enough peaks through in the front to add a sexy accent to an otherwise basic top

Hope this has inspired you to be a little more adventurous! Follow me on Pinterest and Facebook by clicking on the icons above, and on Instagram #beautyinthetrenches

Five Fabulous Frugal Fashion Finds

I want to share a few, five to be exact, frugal fashion finds with you, that are available right now!

1.Up first are these very cute and very affordable sunglasses


They are very similar to these sunglasses from Ray Ban
$51 from Lord and Taylor
$180 from Lord and Taylor

I really like animal prints and I really like these sunglasses, but I LOVE the price….

$10 at Walmart!! And they have 100% UV protection

OutFit of the Day

I’m hangin out waiting for my kids to finish up music lessons so I thought it would be fun to kill some time by posting an outfit of the day!


Don’t you just love church bathroom decor?

I’m trying to build my wardrobe around basics. I’m always looking for simple pieces that are comfortable and basic so they don’t look outdated quickly.

This basic T from the Gap was a Goodwill find and is one of my favorite shirts right now!


Modesty is also important to me. With a very busy family I need to be able to move and play without worrying about exposing anything!

This outfit fits my needs perfectly.
I love that Maxi skirts and the color navy are popular right now.

Here is the bag I’m carrying today.


I bought my Ness bag from Baby Steals for a great deal and have been very pleased with it so far.

We start music day very early and have to drive about 45 min one way.
Needless to say, getting everyone up and out the door on time usually means I don’t get a shower!
Fortunately topknots and messy buns are trendy right now! I found a great tutorial here

I had to watch her do it a couple of times, but I finally got it down and now it’s one of my go to hair styles when I don’t have much time.



Here is a close up of the back and side from another day.



Well, thanks for killing some time with me! Let me know if you have any questions.
