Anchor Sweatshirt

Sweatshirt: J. Crew (last year - this year's here) // Jeans: Old Navy // Shoes: Gap //Sunglasses: Mirror aviator from Ron Jon // Watch: Michael Kors (old)

Yes -it's Saturday ! The weekend is here. Although I know that for many of you that means running around to games, activities, and fairs! I am getting together with all of my college friends for a reunion and can't wait! So I am keeping this post short and sweet. Wishing you all a great weekend!

Old Navy Blue Pumps

Blazer: Classic J. Crew Schoolboy // Jeans: Current/Elliott (pricey- mine are pre-owned from E-bay) // Shoes: Old Navy // Top: J. Crew (old) similar here Bag: Vintage Chloe // Necklace: J. Crew (not online look in stores).

We went out for a family dinner this weekend and it was somewhat cloudy and threatening rain so I felt the need for a little pop of color to brighten the mood. I purchased these classically shaped stilettos from old Navy and they have been a great buy. They have a walkable heel and a perfect pointy toe, in addition to being budget friendly!
I did finally get to break out the sandals this weekend. I also wore these ankle strap sandals from Old Navy with these jeans on Memorial Day. By the way - I am not a paid speaker for Old Navy but have been loving their shoes lately since they let me work the trends without breaking bank!
Did you have a nice weekend with your family and friends. Remembering all those who lost their lives to keep us free - Thank you!

Summer BBQ Ready

Summer BBQ Ready

Summer BBQ Ready by superchicmom featuring a cotton trousers

It is officially our first summer holiday weekend! Yeah! I hope everyone has good weather this weekend to enjoy BBQ season kick off. It can still be a little cool this time of year so here is some BBQ style inspiration. I always wear flats to a about you? My days of wearing heels to an outdoor party are over - I need to be fast on my feet to race after my little man!

Another great part about this weekend.....Memorial Day Sales! I am praying J. Crew starts a percentage off their new arrivals because I have a few items on my wish list like this surfboard sweater, this Mark Alary bracelet (at a fraction of his fine jewelry prices), and this palm print tee. Nordstrom is also having it's half yearly sale. Sadly, these Rag & Bone Newbury Boots I have been wanting are not on sale :(. Think I will try E-bay.

Have a great weekend, and Happy Sales to you!

Some of My favorites Right Now...


Cravings... by superchicmom featuring H&M

I am really ready for summer to arrive and that is clear by all the summer friendly itms I have been placing in my "favorites" on my shop style app. The shop style app is great because you can click on your favorite items and save them to a wish list. That way you can think about if you really want to buy them and if they make sense for your wardrobe and lifestyle. You can also get sale alerts!

These are some of the items in my favorites right now.... 1) This Samudra Palm Pouch. It's perfect to put your essentials in and then throw in a bigger beach bag or straw bag. A definite day to night clutch and only $65.00. 2) These Bauble Bar Pearl 360 earrings. I became obsessed with these after seeing them here on Le Catch. The Dior ones are amazing but not budget friendly. These are under $30.00 and are an edgy alternative to my statement preppy pearls. 3) Cat Eye Wayfarers  from Wldfox. Still deciding about these - I prefer to try sunglasses on first, but I love the mild cat eye wayfarer shape and slight mirror tint. Still deciding if they are too much? 4) H&M sandals - the perfect 3"  heel height and ankle strap to wear with jeans or dresses.

Do you use the shop style or another app to save your favorites and think things over before they go in your cart?

Simple Old Navy White Shirt

Blazer: J. Crew Classic Schoolboy // Shirt: Old Navy // Wedges: J. Crew (old Seville espadrille) J. Crew Factory version here // Sunglasses: Westward Leaning // Necklace: Chanel // Handbag: Vintage Chloe from E-bay

I have been wanting a simple white oxford that is slightly over sized since seeing Sincerely Jules post here. I definitely wanted one that was slightly over sized, but not too much, so I could still use it as a layering piece. Did I mention I also didn't want to spend a lot on it? I found this shirt at Old Navy and I love that it is slightly lightweight - sheer without being see through. I tried the regular large (one size up - but it was too baggy). Then it occurred to me to order the tall medium and it works perfectly. There is more room in the shoulders and it is slightly longer while still having a nipped in waist. A shopping success and with 30% off it was under $20! I consider that a shopping win!
Have you had any shopping wins lately? A piece you love at a low price?

Pricey to Possible:Boyfriend Short and Nude Sandal

Pricey to Possible:Boyfriend Short and Nude Sandal

Pricey to Possible:Boyfriend Short and Nude Sandal by superchicmom featuring frayed shorts

Okay, as far as I know Rachel Bilson isn't a mom yet, but she is super chic. And while I wouldn't wear a trench over shorty shorts around town with my son, I am kind of obsessed with this look. What I love about this look is the combo of the distressed denim and the nude sandals. I need mine a little less on the heel side, and I have been wanting the J. Crew Lillian wedge for some time. But - leave it up to Old Navy to bring in a perfectly possible substitute! I mean those soft sandals are under $25.00 and would go with anything!

Are you loving a strappy sandal and shorts? Yes or No for Moms and busy everyday women on the go?

Have a great weekend!

Gap Striped Flats and Zara Tweed Blazer

Jeans: Gap // Shirt:J. Crew Factory // Belt: J. Crew // Flats: Gap // Jacket: Zara (old) similar here and under $100.00 //Bag: Vintage Chloe Edith satchel from E-bay //Glasses: Westward Leaning // Necklace: Chanel

I wore this to take my son to his fifth year check up. Time definitely goes by faster once you have a child. The days turn into weeks, months, and then suddenly into years! I try to remind myself daily to enjoy every moment.  I often think of how I am growing older too and if I find myself wanting to be critical of how I look I always think..."I will never look as young as I did in this picture". Want to check out a cool style blog where age doesn't matter - check out advanced style blog here.
Sorry for the date stamps on the photos ( too busy too photo shop) but hey it's proof - I really did wear this today and these images are not retouched!
Have a super chic day!

Spring Leopard and White Jeans

Sweater: J. Crew Merino Tippi // Jeans: Banana Republic (super old) // Belt: J. Crew (this year's here) // Sunglasses: Marc by Marc Jacobs // Bag: Chanel // Shoes: J. Crew Everly Wedge (old) great option on sale here // Bracelets: J. Crew(old) and Stella & Dot renegade

Things are finally turning green around here so it's time to break out the white jeans. I know it's not Memorial Day yet, but that Memorial Day to Labor Day for white rule isn't really in effect anymore. This post on eight wears to wear white jeans is really inspiring. White jeans can get messy quick, but hey - at least you can bleach them.
One tip I have found when buying white jeans is to buy one size up - when they are too tight they show a little too much, no?
Do your white jeans get rotation? What styles are your faves?
Hope you all have a happy weekend and enjoy your family and friends! Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out some everyday outfits!
