Before I became a stay at home mom, you could my PiggyToes in a pair of heels walking around a high end clothing boutique in the town of Sewickley, PA. I loved learning about the business from my 2 bosses & loved being around all things girly! Now, as a mama of 2 boys, I probably love fashion even more & I’ll search high and low for whatever it is I’m looking for! From make-up to clothing, hand-bags & shoes… Follow me to see what my PiggyToes find!

Friday Fashion

Standard

Ever since I purchased a pair of LITTLE RED JEANS, I’ve been longing to wear them in a new way other than with black and white!  I was invited to a party on Wednesday night & couldn’t think of a better time to try a new look with my red jeans!  I love coral paired with turquoise so why not pair red with something turquoise?  After playing in my closet during the boys afternoon naps, I came up with this…

I had fun in this outfit and want to encourage you tonight to:

Try Something New ~ Try Something Bold ~ Try Something Daring!

and if you’re a mama, get out before you have slobber or food on your outfit… ; )

Hope your Friday is both fun & fashionable!

Travel in Style

Standard

When I travel, I like to be comfortable but I also like to feel good with how I look too.  You never know who you will meet, who you will run into that you know or what will happen during your travel time.  Even though traveling can be a pain, and sometimes an all day event, its tempting to keep your pj’s on and head to the airport… DON’T.  Throw on a cotton dress, slip your PiggyToes into a pair of cute flip flops, throw back your hair and put a little gloss & mascara on… You’ve heard the saying, A little goes a long way!  This is how I plan to travel for our upcoming San Francisco trip ~ Cute & Comfortable!

Trends I’ll Try

Standard

The trends this Spring are such a mix, but there’s something for everyone no matter what your size, shape or color is!  From pretty floral tops and feminine dresses to bright neon pieces and tribal prints, we should all find something we like and just roll with it in style!  I know I’ll try a few trends this Spring!

For starters, I *might* just try something neon.  I know, brace yourselves.  It might be something in the yellow or orange family because well, anything neon green or neon pink would look a little ridiculous on me.  Even something like this might be fun & practical for my lifestyle!  Neon Yellow Pointelle Knit Sweater from Old Navy, $28

10 Spring Pieces You’ll see me Wear

Standard

Spring is definitely here and I’m so excited to pull out these 10 statement pieces! I love each of these items because they can be worn so many different ways and in my opinion, that’s a GOOD buy! ; ) For example, look at that little yellow dress.  By day, I can wear it with flip-flops and a pony-tail and by night, I can dress it up with heels, style my hair so its shiny & wavy and put on a great pair of earrings or fun bangles!  Heck, even a fun little belt would be cute!

Or the striped long sleeve top… such a beachy top!  By day, it can be worn with shorts & a flat, strappy sandal and by night, it would look awesome worn with white jeans and a little brown leather headband.  How about those Mossimo navy ankle pants?  They look awesome on and could really be worn 50 different ways!  If you put a t-shirt on and slipped your PiggyToes into flip flops, you’d have a cute day outfit or worn with heels and a feminine blouse, you’d have a more sophisticated look! I love those pants.  Just got them at Target!

One of my favorite finds was the Minali cuff on Etsy!  I plan to have it around my wrist all season long and my most latest find was the Everli Green/Turquoise dress.  I’ll have to take a picture when I wear it… Such a shame the picture of it on the hanger doesn’t do a justice (just like the black dress).  Regardless, I love the open shoulder sleeve and the bold color green.  The black dress is also great for a date night – a feel good dress all around!  It doesn’t even call for much jewelry or even an awesome shoe – the dress says it all.  Max Studio – good buy.

Goodness, I’m thinking I need a date (or 2) soon!  How about you?  ; )

This Spring, Find pieces that are BRIGHT & UNIQUE.  Find pieces you can DRESS UP or DOWN.  And Find pieces that are BOLD & MAKE A STATEMENT!

My latest Fashion…

Standard

I’m slowly starting to show my neck, arms and legs after developing a rash ALL. OVER. MY. BODY. from my miscarriage.  No, I wasn’t contagious.  Nor was it gross looking.  Just little red flat dots from head to toe.  I have to tell you, its AMAZING to feel the wind & the SUN again on my skin… Oh, the sun!  God knew I needed the sun.  Especially  being that the sun will heal my skin more than any medication could!  Anyway, during that time, I covered myself up and thought I’d share a few of the days I felt comfortable to even take a picture.

 I pulled out my scarves and jackets, tucked my jeans and leggings into boots and tried a few new do’s too!  My red jacket is probably the only red piece I own and I like to think my cross hoodie is from a sweet little boutique and yet it was probably $14 and the most comfortable hoodie I own.  The pearl drop necklace with my ‘waves’ is my new favorite necklace (from my sweet MIL) and the beige scarf (pic with Rocco) goes with EVERYTHING I own!  The little yellow scarf is my absolute FAVORITE scarf and the sweater I paired it with was the first day I showed my arms!  The next day, I must have felt refreshed so I paired a pretty white top with my simple turquoise necklace.  That necklace has been in my life for many many years now.  You may have seen these photos on FB but for those of you who have yet to ‘like’ our page: Where The Piggy Toes Go, this was me (most likely on apt. days) while in hiding from the rest of the world…
