Welcome to Style Sessions! Lately I’ve been thinking of downsizing my wardrobe a little, but I find it so difficult to part with pieces and as a result have accumulated so.many.things.

What I’ve realized is that despite having a decade worth of clothes, I often wear the same items and simply dress them up or down with accessories and jewels. It would be safe to say one of my all time favorite wardrobe essentials are tailored black shorts. If you’ve been visiting Style Sessions long enough, I’m sure you have noticed this! So today, I wanted to share with you some of the other basic wardrobe pieces I believe every woman should own – and the best part is, they’re eternally chic and almost all under $100!

I’m also still obsessed with my favorite finds last week – and it seems you are too! For those who emailed to tell me you’d bought the Peplum Plate Belt or J.Crew Polka Dot Sweater, I absolutely can’t wait to see how you style them! Our beautiful Co-Hosts for Friday’s Fab Favorites Link Up last week were Jessica from Afternoon Style and Natalia from Ma Nouvelle Mode, they both have such great style, so if you’re looking for a little extra inspiration today, be sure to head over and say hi! Also, if you’re interested in Co-Hosting the Friday’s Fab Favorites Link Up, just send me an email for more details.

In case you’re new here, Style Sessions is live every Tuesday from 5am PST. It’s all about sharing what we’ve been wearing, or if you’re on a budget, a virtual outfit you’d love to wear! Every week I also select someone to showcase as ‘Head Stylist’ in the next edition – it’s a brilliant way to showcase your personal style and your blog.

Wardrobe Essentials…

As mentioned, I’ve been thinking about the wardrobe pieces I own that I simply can’t live without – and at the top of that list are my favorite tailored black shorts. Dress them up with heels and a blazer, or down with cute flats and a vibrant top, they’re a style essential and one that, season after season, simply doesn’t date. What is one wardrobe piece you could not give up?


Love shorts as much as I do? These are my top picks:

Stripe Shorts (on sale!)   |  Black Tailored Shorts   |   Leather Shorts   |  Bow Front Shorts   |   Ombre Jacquard Shorts



Meet Our Head Stylist…

I’m excited to introduce you to the fabulous Kristen from The Mrs. & The Momma! Not only does Kristen have gorgeous style, she is one of the nicest gals out there! I adored this outfit she linked up recently…

What is your go-to look?  My go-to look is usually a graphic tee and either a tube or maxi skirt with a hat. I can’t wait for cooler weather here in Texas so I can get layering!

There are so many fashion trends right now, which on are you currently loving? I am loving the leather trend right now!  It’s such a great trend to incorporate into our wardrobe a little or a lot. A leather pencil skirt is on my short list of must-haves this fall and I just bought a fab leather-sleeved gray v-neck that I adore!

What inspired you to start The Mrs. & The Momma? I’ve blogged for almost five years, but about two years ago after having my fourth child, I needed to kick start my style, as I felt I had lost it. That’s when I started posting about what I wore in an effort to explore my style, take risks, and hopefully inspire others that might need a little push to try new things clothing-wise. 

Name three beauty products you couldn’t live without: Suave Keratin Dry Shampoo, Lash Blast mascara (the orange tube), and my husband’s Burberry Touch…I just love the smell so much that I wear it too!

How would you describe your style? My style is a combination of classic, trendy and a little boho…it depends on which day you catch me!
