When it comes to getting dressed for work, being comfortable is a top priority! No matter how much you love your job, sometimes it can feel like a grind. Wearing a cute and comfortable outfit can help on those days you wish you were at the beach and not at a desk! When Leota fashions asked us to try some of their clothing, we took a look at their selection and immediately started ordering. Leota clothing makes perfect workwear because the clothing is cute and, almost, more importantly, it’s comfortable! We are also psyched that we have a 20% discount code just for our readers with code barelyBs.
My hunt for the perfect fashion sneaker started months ago when I stumbled upon a pair of Golden Goose Sneakers that caught my eye. The only problem was that I couldn’t get over the hefty price tag that came along with them. I mean spending almost $500 on a pair of sneakers was crazy, right!? Well… after months of debate, I am the proud owner of a pair of Golden Goose Deluxe Brand sneaker and I love them! Now, some of you are probably thinking I’ve have lost my mind or I’m out of touch with reality to spend that kind of money on sneakers. But let me tell you about my journey (a.k.a. mental justification) to the Golden Sneaker and answer the question: Are Golden Goose the best fashion sneakers?READ MORE
Does anyone else feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day? At this stage in our lives, whether you work outside or inside the home, we are BUSY! When you have active children, it can be hard to fit everything in. Minutes are short when you’re getting ready in the morning, and who has time to stop and think about looking stylish and cute? #aintnobodygottimeforthat. This is where the Day Dress comes in. There are so many reasons why a good day dress is a closet staple.
The Beauty of a Day Dress
It’s easy! A day dress is the wardrobe’s version of your favorite one stop shop. You don’t need to think about what top goes with what bottoms, you just put the dress on and Boom, you’re ready to go!🙌. Throw on a pair of sandals, grab your purse, and you’re out the door. Sign me up for anything that makes life easier!
I posted this one the ‘gram and it was a hit! It’s one of my favorites, too! Every time I wear it, I receive compliments. It has the cutest back and I might have worn it 2 days in a row.🤩
You need a Bra Cover! What the WHAT?!
The GAP (and I’m not talking about the store)
When I put my bra on in the morning it always fits great and my boobs look full, with almost a hint of cleavage. By the time I make it out the door and to my first destination of the day, “ The Girls” begin to adjust and I get the THE GAP. THE GAP is the annoying space between your boob and your bra. I always say that once I gave birth and nursed my three kiddos, I lost my top boob. Haha! My favorite was when my kids were little and I carried them on my hip, I would look down and they would be holding on to my bra gap like the “ oh shit” handles in your car.😂
I’m Not an A Cup!
Friends told me that maybe I’m an A cup and not a B cup, or that I need to go down to a 32 not a 34, or that I have just not found the perfect bra. I have tried it all and nothing helps! Anyone else feel my pain on cup gaping? Well, you can all lower your hands now because I’m about to add a “Barely B” staple to your closet.
Introducing… my new fav… the Second Base bra cami!
Looking at the photos above you may wonder, “ Why would I need that if I am already wearing a bra?”. Well, let me tell you why. This is a lightweight item that is worn over your normal bra that smooths everything out and prevents the display of The GAP, or even worse, a little sneak peek of a nip when you bend over (not shown below. lol).
Bring on the thin summer shirts !
Until I found the second base bra cami, I would wear tank tops under my clothes to help smooth out all the unwanted lines. That works for some tops, and especially in the winter months as an added layer of warmth. But in the Spring and Summer months the added layering is not needed and can be annoying. The bra cover solves that problem! It is also great to wear under work shirts or wrap dresses if they dip a little lower than what is office appropriate.
Add it to your wardrobe today!
P.S. I’m wear a SM in all styles and for reference, I am a 34 B bra size.
