I absolutely adore Kirsten from BarkingDogShoes.com! She’s one of those most fashionable mommies I know and wanted to show you ladies how a mom of 2 can look great and be comfortable, all while staying on a budget!
So here is Today’s Outfit by Kirsten Borrink!
If I could update my wardrobe from one catalog, it would be Garnet Hill. Now that I’m 41, I have to choose my clothes more carefully as not to appear Forever 21 or on the flip-side, Forever Appleseed’s.
But aye, here’s the rub. Garnet Hill clothing, as lovely as it may be, is too pricey for this budget-conscious mom of two. After eying a gray sweater dress for close to $100 in said catalog, I harnessed my deal-finding powers and headed to TJ Maxx. Look what I found! A two-tone charcoal gray and black sweater dress for $29.99 (brand is London Times, which I only found online at Overstock). To complete the outfit, I added a necklace from Francesca’s Collections ($27.99), purple Hue tights from TJ Maxx ($9.99), button bracelet from Greece(gift from my aunt) and my beloved Sofft Mela slouch boots from last season.
You can find the Sofft Mela boot on clearance for $99 at The Walking Company.
Sofft has a similar style called the Vittoria that is even more stylish than the Mela. The Vittoria has a fold-over cuff and bow detail in the back. Other than that, it’s just an updated version of the Mela!
