Fashion Friday: Anatomy Of An Outfit #fashionfriday


My Getting Gorgeous partner Audrey came up with a great idea – she wanted to start showing mom fashion under a REAL light. Sure, it’s easy for us to put up a quick list of favorite finds, but where’s the value in that? It’s better to show you how to put an outfit together, right?

I bought this Halogen shirt from Nordstrom a few days ago. It’s see through so I had to pair it with a tank. Here’s what I came up with:


The shirt isn’t wrinkled, it’s the tank underneath. Should have smoothed that out, but it’s my first time folks! It’s a learning curve. lol!

Shirt – Halogen from Nordstrom

Shoes – Tahari (here’s a similar look)

Capri Jeans- Radcliffe London (here’s a similar lo0k)

New York and Company – Tank

Clutch – UE (similar look – actually better)

Necklace – Jewelista

Bracelet – street fair



I’m most looking forward to wearing this outfit to an evening summer cocktail party! I can’t wait for the warmer weather.

Come back each Friday to see another outfit completely broken down!
