Well, I don’t know about you, but isn’t it FABULOUS when you find comfy clothes that are fashionable? I mean….give it all to me! I love to look put together even when I don’t feel put together. When you are having a no goo, very bad horrible day at home when trying to get ready and roll out the door. Like, all of it went wrong. But then, you find an outfit, or some fantastic shoes, or some jewelry that just makes you smile on the outside. Now THAT’S what I’m talking about! 🙂

And that’s what I want to share with you today! As you know, huge fan of Chadwick’s of Boston over here. The variety is stellar and the prices are pretty great, especially when things go on sale. Wowzers! I have a couple new things I wanted to share with you that I received, and….so does Erin! Yes, that means it’s time for another collab with Erin from Home with the Boys!its all in the details, casual spring looks inspiration

This week’s installation, in my collaboration with my friend Erin over at Home with the Boys, features Chadwick’s of Boston! As you may already know, Erin is a fellow fashion lover, but she is a mom to three boys and, as you know, I’m a mom to four girls! We thought it would be fun to show you how we view style from two different perspectives – a girl mom and a boy mom. Be sure to check out her fabulous post today, sharing something different perspectives on her items from Chadwick’s of Boston!

You will see that we both received the Knit Tank Maxi Dress. I knew that I wanted to get a black maxi dress for the warmer months, and when I saw the one from Chadwick’s, I knew I wanted to check it out. It’s got a modest, flattering cut, it has fun pockets for added detail along with two modest slits up the side of the dress. Both of these make it fun to wear, without getting too sexy. I mean, I’m a Mom, I skip the sexy at this point, but the slits ARE great for a little ventilation in the warm months!

Chadwick's Spring 2016 #BMGMStyleIMG_18Chadwick's Spring 2016 #BMGMStyle55

dress from chadwicks // sashay slip ons from bzees // denim jacket + bag from kohl’s // necklace from conversation pieces (old)

Right now I’m wearing it with a denim jacket, because denim jackets just make everything better. Ha! That being said, you can’t see the straps of the maxi dress because they are covered, so I wanted to make sure you knew they were thick enough where you can wear a normal bra and you won’t see the straps. YAY! No strapless bra needed with this great maxi dress!

The other item I received was the Pouch Pocket Tunic. I don’t know about you, but I’m loving leggings and longer tops. You won’t find me in leggings with a short top…because, NO. And neither should you be caught in one of these. Leggings are to be worn with your rump covered. There’s your ‘PSA’ for the day 🙂Chadwick's Spring 2016 #BMGMStyle
The top is lightweight and super soft. Plus, it has the little detailing of the front pocket, which I love because I feel it takes away from any ‘pooch’ that you might be hiding 🙂 The fit is flattering and the fabric is perfect for the cooler, spring days and nights. It’s super soft too!
