Style Unplugged

It is so easy to get in a style rut when you work from home or are a stay at home mom, or both, in my case.   Comfort rules over all for me.  When my days are full, like yesterday, I want to be comfortable but still look kinda cute.  These uber comfy pants by Svelte are perfect for my day to day life at home.  They come with a built in shaper that helps give my tummy a smoother look.  This little top I found at Anthropologie (on sale!) and has become a fast favourite.  A pretty piece like this can instantly perk up any simple look.

Another part of making yourself feel good is stealing a bit of time away for yourself.  My happy place is the swing in our backyard.  I’m working on taking a little time out here and there to unplug, sit, enjoy sipping a coffee, and even reading a bit.   There will always be a list of things to do, but taking a little time for self care is so essential.   And Ladies, unplug.  I swear it is good for the soul.  Switching off allows us time to breath, reflect, and to not be concerned with what everyone else is doing.

This post was sponsored by Svelte, however all opinions are completely my own.  I only share products I love, wear, and use.
