The Most Comfortable and Colorful Leggings + giveaway

white plum leggings_jsorelleWe are sisters. We all have brown hair and brown eyes. We are all moms and wives. We have similar morals. We are all stubborn. We all love our family.

We are also VERY different. Our personalities are different, our body types are different and our styles are different. Jessica, unorganized and wanna-be-Martha, prefers to live in leggings, UGGS or tall, rider boots and long sleeve shirts {no itchy sweaters for her} throughout the winter. Jenna, super organized and total type-A, wears heels 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. She is obsessed with black and white. She loves to dress up and create her own trends. Jodi, honest and matter-of-fact, loves her leggings and yoga pants, bright colors and UGG boots; however she has had to dress a big, beautiful bump lately. Oh, and let’s not forget that Jessica will always have a tummy bump {I can totally relate to what Jennifer Garner said on Ellen…you go girl}, Jenna will always have a skinny, model-type body. Jodi will always need to manage her thunder thighs. Jessica and Jenna will always have flat, mom butts {until we make it a priority to change that} and Jodi will always have a bubble tush. It’s all who we are, and it’s what God gave us to work with and embrace.

Well, guess what? We all found one thing we love to wear – and we can all make it work to fit our body types personality. White Plum leggings. Ladies, let us tell you – they are heavenly. They are one size fits all…even a preggo mama, with an 8-month-big belly found them comfortable.

Jessica was fortunate enough to meet White Plum’s creator and founder, Hilary, and  social media guru, Liz, at Alt this summer. They were lovely. They had amazing business cards, and by business cards, we mean, a beautiful scarf and necklace. They were kind. They had a good, success story. And, even better, they sell great products at reasonable prices.

Lucky for y’all, White Plum is giving away a pair of leggings today. There is something for everyone – every color and pattern your fashionista mind can imagine. See the Rafflecopter information at the bottom of this post to enter.

splurge vs. steal

There are certain key pieces a woman must have in her wardrobe. While we love a good deal, we do understand that a woman must have ‘the essentials’…and for those, you have our permission to splurge.

Our top 10 wardrobe essentials for women:
1. white tee – the been-around-forever, looks good with everything, comfy shirt is a must have.
2. fitted, white, button-down shirt - one that can tuck in or stay out. you will look so put-together.
3. cardigan – one that’s versatile with many outfits in all seasons, either black or a neutral color.
4. little black dress – need we say more…its a must
5. pencil skirt – you will feel so feminine and powerful. find one that is the perfect length, grazing the top of the knees.
6. designer jeans – its worth spending the money to find the perfect fit that flatten and flatter you body type.
7. black pants and/or black leggings - they are flattering and go with everything, plus you can’t beat the elastic waist band on the leggings.
8. ballet flats – they are more chic than sneakers, yet still comfortable. you can buy in black, black and neutral, or even a pop of color.
9. trench coat – one that will remain timeless.
10. black pumps {or nude pumps} – even if you are not a heels gal, every woman needs a pair of pumps for work or special occasions.

For the other, less essential, more trendy pieces, you can be satisfied with a steal if you can’t afford to splurge on the splurge. We found some steals for this season you might like below.

Sweater and Legging Fall and Winter Fashion

= swegging. And, I want a pair of them!

So, I know I should be telling you about some of my favorite collections and pieces from New York Fashion Week {I loved all the black and white on the runway…I hope to share my faves with you soon}. But it’s colder here in the Rocky Mountains and the trees are a beautiful palette of rich red, burnt orange, deep yellow and crisp green, so my mind is slooowwwlly transitioning to fall. I’m in denial that fall is already here. I’ve been reluctant to ‘go there’ with colder weather fashion, but today I’m warming up to the idea…
