6.) I am not sure if the sales were delayed on this SWEATER because I shared it back in July from the Nordstrom sale and I cannot believe it is still available! It runs large so I am wearing an XS in mine!

7.) Hey Girl Hey door mat was a top seller for sure! Who doesn’t love a little cheeky greeting?! I think door mats are a great housewarming gift!!

10.) This suede SKIRT is a goody! It comes in this color and gray too and perfect piece to transition from Fall to Winter.

10 Must Have Closet Items for Moms

I was so excited to find out that the Local Moms Network wanted me to write a “Mom Uniform” edition to share with their followers! As a mom myself who obviously loves fashion, it is an honor to share my favorite pieces and of course some of the best sellers for the month of August.

To be honest, I don’t believe there is a “uniform” for a mom. I say wear whatever you are comfortable in. If you look at my Instagram feed, @ladyandrestyle, you will see that my style varies based on the event. Just because we are moms doesn't mean we need to dress like we are as lame as our kids think we are 😂 There is definitely a time and place for every outfit, and below I will highlight my favorite pieces that can transition from playground to date night!

I am looking forward to ORANGE being the newest Fall color on trend. I think it pairs well with black or brown and obviously I could'nt wait to wear it as I already painted my nails orange ☺️

Click the blue links below to take you straight to where you can purchase the item shown. Happy shopping friends. Don’t forget to tag me on Instagram so I can see how you style your outfit based on my inspiration below

! **If you are new to my page, at the end of this post is a little “about me” section!

IMG_3853.jpg

Closet Staple #1: Cardigan

This covers the booty so you can wear it with leggings or a short dress too! I sized down to an XS and if you don’t love brown, it comes in several colors under $20.

IMG_3843.jpg

Closet staple #2: Graphic Tee

This tee is selling like crazy! I am wearing a small and would say it runs TTS. The colors go with everything, it is cheeky, and it’s embellished for a little spice. Plus it is only $9. Easy to wear with my favorite $12 joggers found HERE or dress it up with a leather skirt for a night out with the ladies found HERE.

IMG_0903.JPG

Closet Staple #3: Girlfriend Jeans

Flattering for most body types and forgiving. I typically size down in these so they are less “crotchy” if that makes sense 🤷🏼‍♀️ I also love this PAIR if you want them to be less distressed. Both are affordable, making it an easier purchase if you are unsure you will love this trend. I also love dressing them up with a heel and cami for a date night. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. It’s fashion, it's supposed to be fun!

IMG_0107.JPG

Closet Staple #4: Hat

Day #5 hair= hat day! Haha well atleast in my house. But really, they are so chic and an easy way to look dressed up with little effort. I love this one because it comes in several colors, it's adjustable to fit my noggin, and it holds its shape so well. HERE is another best selling hat for this season too! It comes in black and burgundy.

IMG_2122.jpg

Closet Staple #5: Belt ( I linked this exact belt…it’s $11)

Do ya see this outfit? The girlfriend jeans, a hat, and a belt. BINGO! I look put together but step into my house and it’s probably a crap show. I kept it PG. It’s called #momlife

My favorite $20 Gucci belt dupe linked HERE

Authentic Gucci belt linked HERE and worth every penny.

B2A4C207-DC3E-4083-A1DC-323E7287A5B7.jpg

Closet Staple #6: OTK Boots

I realize that these are not everyones cup of tea, but if they are, you need these! Add them to your cart. They come in 3 colors and run TTS, but wait for the store to run 40% off before you pull the trigger, because why spend more than you have to? WE have lattes to buy 😂

e2569486-3f89-4120-bfc6-9cee14068ddf.jpeg

These booties are linked HERE and they come in black and brown leather as well as leopard print! I don’t own these but this is a classic bootie for Fall.

IMG_3957.JPG

Closet staple #7: Joggers. AKA sweatpants with jazz 💁🏼

I sized down to an XS in these because when you wear them and stretch them out, I don’t like when they get too saggy in the rear. Black is best because it goes with everything and people say it’s sliming. I wanna be slim and comfy too. These are only $12.

Closet Staple #8: No-show socks that ACTUALLY stay put! These are linked HERE and I have put them thought the tests.

My second favorite (pictured) are THESE.

IMG_0439.JPG

Closet Staple #9: Dark Denim.

My favorite is the first photo with the latte in hand per usual ☺️ They are linked HERE. I would say they run TTS and they are perfect for any occasion, including dressy attire because they are dark, skinny, with no rips. They hold up really well but have a higher price point.

My second most worn skinny jeans are THESE. These are now on sale under $40 and wear well.

Closet Staple #10: Chambray Shirt

I linked this exact shirt above. It is the perfect piece to transition to ALL seasons and it is timeless. Everyone needs one in their closet. White denim, shorts, Canadian tuxedo, or paired under sweaters for the Winter months.

HERE is another budget friendly option.

IMG_4134.jpg

BONUS Staple: THIS bag 😍

The best travel bag hands down and it comes in a few prints/patterns. It doesn't look special from this photo but it is a 3 in 1 bag. The zipper around the bottom expands making it the easiest carry on ever and it hold so so much. I also love this bag for a diaper/gym bag. Yes it is roomy but it’s perfect for activities too! I love the black and white stripes because it’s classic.

About Me

I am lady and RED is my daughter’s initials! When I started this blog it was all about being a mom and cooking, because those are 2 other things I enjoy alongside fashion! I am a labor and delivery nurse by trade and miss my patient interactions so much, but that is where Instagram comes into play. I absolutely love my followers! I link everything I can with LiketoKnow.it. You can download the free app and follow me to shop all of my looks including my house decor! Basically this blog is a mixed bag because who wants to be limited to just one vice? I hope you loved my top closet staples and stick around for more Fall to Winter fashion!

Gordmans Back to School Shopping- No Kid Hungry Campaign

Back to school… 3 little words that are supposed to be a parent’s relief. Unfortunately, those 3 words are not a relief to 13 million children in the U.S. who struggle with hunger. In the summertime, 6 out of 7 hungry kids do not get the meals they need and while in school, lunch is sometimes their last meal of the day. Oh what a wonderful world we live in that we get to give back and possibly help these numbers improve. I have partnered with Gormans to tell you how you all can help.

Please spread the word with your friends too! We can do MORE because we are always better TOGETHER!

Gordmans is partnering with No Kid Hungry to help make sure no kid goes hungry any time of the year, not just back to school time. From July 21 to August 31, post a photo on your Instagram feed using the hashtag #FuelKidsFutures and Gordmans will donate $1 to No Kid Hungry. (**Up to $10,000)

For more information about the cause, No Kid Hungry, click HERE.

Please tag me in your photos too so I can see what you guys picked up while shopping at Gordmans! Find me on Instagram @ladyandredstyle and make sure to follow @gordmans too.

See what Rowan and I found during our back to school shopping at our local Gordmans.

Anyone else’s child unicorn obsessed? Trust me they have plenty of inventory to shop from with unicorns on chairs, bows, and of course backpacks!

IMG_2981.jpg

Gordmans is an off-price retailer which means they buy excess inventory and that allows you, the buyer, to shop reduced prices everyday. I think you will be greatly surprised to see how many brands you can identify all in ONE location. Hint Hint…this makes any kind of shopping super easy and convenient.

Back to school for this mama means I need to organize my life! They have so many great calendars and wall art available to suit you and your families needs. Who needs this one? 🙋🏼

Back to School shopping for the College or High School kid just got a tad easier. You moms and dads know exactly what I am hinting at 😉 They have adorable chairs for dorms, planners, and laptop desks too!

We will be posting our #FuelKidsFuture post coming up and I can’t wait to see all of yours. Until next time friends! Stay tuned for more posts and notifications on my stories and Instagram page featuring inside our back to school shopping trip!

Happy Shopping!

11 Best Sellers in June

It’s officially Summer! Whoot Whoot! We just wrapped up another family vacation to my Dad’s house in Indiana. We drove the 8 hours this year because Des Moines doesn’t have a direct flight to Indianapolis….crazy right? So two ladies in a rental car and we are definitely not afraid to stop and ask for directions but we never stop for breaks because we are on a mission and I am crazy 😜

I love doing these monthly round ups because I can see also what everyone is loving! I only link things in stock because unfortunately some things have sold out. So click the HERE buttons to take you to the piece and you can purchase it from there! Happy Shopping friends!

XOXO
