Show us your Life : Fashion Tips

Today over at Kelly's Korner is Show Us Your Life: Fashion Tips. Hop on over to check out all of the awesome tips! 

I am a big fan of the show What Not To Wear. I have been watching for years and you can count on it being on our TV everyday at noon. I love how they do not follow trends but rather the classic staples that are always in style and make every women look fabulous. Here is a fusion of their staples and my favorite things. 

I love my wrap dress! It was such an easy and professional item i used to wear to work often. In the late fall i would pair it with black tights and booties (which i will show you later). My dress is blue and black striped with a three quarter length sleeve. Here is a picture of a wrap dress from Banana Republic i am loving. 

Next up my Ralph Lauren white oxford shirt. This works great for an interview under a suit, for a business casual workplace with khaki pants, or with a pair of trouser jeans (which i will talk about later).
This is a staple for me in the summer. I love love love Ralph Lauren Polo dresses. Super easy and can be worn anywhere while keeping you cool in the hot summer heat.
A trouser jean is something that i love for going out to somewhere that i want to be slightly more dressed up but still casual with jeans. I like wearing them with a cute pair of pumps in a fun color.
My absolute favorite handbags are my coach leather bags. I have a brown one and a black one and i rarely ever use anything besides these two. They are wonderful and well worth the investment. I have had my black one for 5 years now and it still looks new.

Shoes, shoes, shoes! I have always been a heels girls but because of our new addition flats have become my favorite. I love flats with all different colors! These are all from DSW.
My favorite shoes are my Steve Madden booties. I wore these out last year. I wore them with tights and dresses or skirts, jeans, and work clothes. Love these!!!
In the winter i love to wear boots over jeans. The hubs hates it but i love it. 
Last but certainly not least are spankx! I call them my "sucker inner" and i love them under dresses to smooth everything out or since having Liam under pants everything.

I wanted to also write about my favorite styles for Liam. I have noticed i am a Ralph Lauren-aholic with baby boy clothes.

I also love RL- especially since I just a had a baby boy. I def. need that RL white button down. So versatile. I need to start a list! My husband has finally given up on the boots over leggings and jeans. Just point him toward Taylor Swift...seeeee!
