Cold weather must haves that won’t break the bank

Cold weather must haves that wont breake the bank

With cold weather just around the corner it’s time to bundle up, cozy up and refresh that winter wardrobe. And it I belive it doesn’t need to be expensive nor complicated!

Now, I find that shopping for kids clothes is especially hard, because finding cute pieces that don’t break the bank is close to impossible these days! Everything seems to be so expensive, right?! And with more than one child at home the change of seasons can be really expensive!

That’s why I was so exited to discover the all new Giant Tiger Store in Greenfield Village, with their amazing kids section! Though I must admit I have passed more than once through the home section and of course woman fashion finds!

I’ve seen so many cute and cosy finds for kids, and I couldn’t help myself and got on a quite of a shopping spree; but without spending too much!

So first, I got this cute and warm mermaid tail blanket for my Lili, for only 16$, that she’s totally obsessed with! And then I got the sweetest, softest blouse and leggings bear set for my Rose, that she want’s to wear everyday now!

And of course, I’m a sucker for cozy and warm sweaters, so when I fund this super soft gray one, and for that amazing price, I knew I had to get it! I love how I can style it with jeans or with a dress! And can you believe it was only 20$? It looks like a sweater form one of the expensive stores, don’t you think?

And then in the home section I found this scented candle and I almost brought home new drapes and throws ( but I have so many that they don’t fit in my closets anymore.. But if you need new drapes, check them out here !).¬† The Coconut Cream candle smells amazing, and is so perfect for the cold days ahead! Makes me feel so cozy at home now.

Why you need a ballerina skirt

Since I became a mom I changed my outlook on a lot of things including my body. I understood how truly a amazing our bodied are, and how unimportant are the societies standards of beauty. It took me awhile, but I finally realized that instead of trying to fit my body in to a mold of cultural unrealistic standards, I just need to love it and embrace it as it is. And dress it with pleasure and creativity without thinking much of how it could be dressed once looking thinner or younger.

That’s why I decided to share more fashion ideas with you, since I believe we all need to see more real life woman having fun with fashion, embracing their bodies and dressing in whatever makes them happy! And less photoshopped unrealistic images showing us how we should look, am I right?!

So today I want to share with you my new must have- a tulle ballerina skirt! Seriously, its a wardrobe staple, comfortable, fluffy, embracing these mom-hips and a muffin top- and cute and flirty for any outing or date night.

Here I styled mine with a soft button down shirt in white and blue stripes and pretty nude block heel with a simple toe strap and just a little bit of sparkle! And a little pink crossover purse, because pink on pink is always a win!

And when I’m out brunching, I like to wear it with flat sandals and a simple white tee, or snickers and a black tee. Seriously, just any tee and this skirt, and I feel like I can conquer the world!
