Budget Mom Style Weekly #1



If you followed along with my 31 Days of Pinterest-inspired Fall Outfits for Busy Moms on a Budget Series then you already understand the why, what, and how of this new weekly series. If you missed the 31 Day Series you can see all the posts HERE if you want to catch up before diving into this new series.

The Why: One day I realized I had more yoga pants in my closet than real pants. I had become THAT mom. The slobbish, pajamas in the car line wearing mom. It had to change.

The What: A weekly series where I share easy, comfortable, stylish, and wearable outfits for moms who want to look good but don’t have a huge clothing budget. 

The How: Each week I’ll share the outfits I wore the previous week complete with where I bought the items and how much they cost. Some weeks might include 5-6 outfits and some weeks might only have 3. It just depends on what my schedule was for the week. 

And now The Wear:


This was my errands day; the grocery store and the dry cleaners, etc

My new iPhone 6+ should be here this next week so hopefully my pictures will be less fuzzy. I broke my regular camera awhile back so I’ve been using my iPhone 5 and as you can see, it’s not giving me great pictures in my bedroom. See you next week!

    Awesome. Fun to see the series still going! Looking good!! The orange was a nice surprise! I don’t remember seeing orange in October, but I am probably forgetting it. I also really liked the stripes, dark jeans, and lighter boots. I love that blue and cognac combo. Also, I like the idea of a dressier sweatshirt. Gotta keep my eyes peeled. ๐Ÿ™‚ Do you have a specific post on how you save with coupons/best credit card deals/etc.? I need to poke around the blog more. I feel like people are so much more in the know than I am about Zulily and how to work your coupons!. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Uh, Anne I’m so sorry it took me so long to respond. It’s been a long week here. I did do a brief post during my 31 Day series about coupons and stuff but I have a much longer one planned soon about how I stay on budget and where I find the best deals. Thanks for reminding me!

        Oh, golly, don’t worry about that! But I do look forward to your post whenever it goes up! ๐Ÿ™‚
