Rock the Fringe with FabKids!

*As a FabKids Ambassador, I received this outfit free of charge, all opinions are 100% my own*
Lilly has been loving fringe lately and this colorful outfit is her favorite!  She loves the bright colors, the fringe everywhere and of course the heart design. She is constantly flapping her arms around and spinning in the air to show of the fun fringe details.  Plus the fringe on the pretty gold boots coordinates perfectly and has her looking totally fashionable this season.

A Day In The Shoes of a Busy Mom ~ Holiday Edition! Plus Fun Mommy and Me Styles!

The holiday season is upon us, Christmas is in 10 days! Can you believe it?  I can’t, I feel like it’s still fall, which means I am stressed, busy and stressed.
Like most women, I like shoes, I love shoes, they take my stress away!  So let’s talk shoes.

These December days I am running from stores to the gym, then to appointments, school events, family parties, and local traditions.  Then there is all the little things that make the holiday special like holiday movies with the kids, baking, and building gingerbread houses.  Add to that my everyday chores, this being the busiest time for blogging, and that stupid elf that I keep forgetting to move, let’s just say I’m not getting much sleep.  I bet most work at home mommy’s aren’t this month.  
However I have come-up with a wardrobe kit that has taken the stress out of getting ready for all this holiday fun, and of course each outfit is centered around shoes!
I am trying to consolidate my daily errands into one trip during this month.  That means if I’m going holiday shopping or to a doctors appointment, I am also going to the gym.  This means I have been breaking in my awesome new Flex Experience RN 4 Running Nike Sneakers.  I pair them with my yoga pants and workout top and I am off.  I am often speed walking through stores anyways so why not be comfortable in my gym clothes.  Plus it is so much nicer to get home without achy feet!
For all the school functions and blogger luncheons, yoga pants are not very appropriate so my favorite pair of jeans and a comfortable sweater or blouse match perfectly with these XOXO black Mace booties!  They are remarkable comfortable for heels and they pull every outfit together, making even my worn in jeans look vamped up.
I’m a work at home mom and my husband is self employed, so we don’t have any fancy parties to attend.  However we do have lots of family parties and outings all month long and two things are important for these.  One, an ugly sweater.  They are everywhere this year, and every party I’ve been invited to has had the word “Ugly Sweater” attached. Two, it’s chilly outside in New England.  Walking around looking at Christmas lights is not fun if your toes are frozen numb.  This is why Lilly and I are in love with our matching BearPaw Emma Short Black Winter Boots!  They are comfy, keep my feet toasty warm, and their cute.  Even better Famous Footwear has them for both women and kids, so we get to do the whole ‘Mommy and Me” thing with our matching sweaters of course!
Once all these outings, errands, and parties are over I get to do what I love most about the holidays.  Get in our Pj’s, turn lights on the tree, grab some hot chocolate, turn on the Christmas movies, and cuddle up with my babies.  However Famous Footwear has added an amazing cuteness factor to even that!  Coordinating Minnetonka Britt Trapper slippers for women and kids.
This holidays season will pass very fast, like past years.  The stress is there, but I’m just trying to steal a little peace to savor the Christmas memories while my children are still young.  Even if the big smiles are being delivered from shoes.  I love getting inspiration from #ohsofamous and having fun exploring what others are wearing, Check it out  and see the variety that Famous Footwear offers.

This is the Peppercorn Kids “Sequin Heart Beanie” in light pink.  I love this hat!  It’s so beautiful and unique, plus Lilly is on a huge heart kick lately so anything with hearts on it makes her smile!  The hat is soft and thick and the large sequined heart on the side make it the perfect hat for any little girly girl!

This is the Peppercorn Kids “Bow Collared Necklace” in fuchsia.  This necklace is beyond adorable!  Lilly wore it with her hair in a bun, her rhinestone false black rimmed glasses, and a denim button up shirt.  It looked perfect together, very nerdy chic!
