Savvy Style Challenge: Function and Comfort

Last Friday I did a post on my bargain shopping ways when it comes to fashion and accessories with They challenged me to put together a head-to-toe outfit from Macy’s for under $100.00 that could pull off two looks. All I needed to do was shop online at with a $100.00 gift card (gifted to me by, choose my items, then use the Macy’s coupon codes to get a further discount. These challenges are seriously right up my ally, and I am a huge fan of Side note: Did you know they have an app out now? I used it the other day while shopping. It was awesome.
Today I am doing the second half of that post but on my everyday style, which is all about comfort, function, and attempting to not look like a complete wreck while chasing small children. I think all fashion and clothing style should be comfortable, don’t you? It would be great if everything I wore felt like I was wearing pajamas, but still looked like normal street attire (avoiding any funky looks from others). Well, I think I made it happen today by pairing the boots, slouchy black sweater, scarf and earrings from my Macy’s shopping adventure with a few of my own clothes.

 Stretchy pants that don’t mind if you gained or lost a lb. or two and a hat to cover un-ruly hair is a girls best friend. Just sayin. 

Here is what I bought from Macy’s and what I saved with my coupon.

This is the reason why comfort is essential most of the time for me…boots are perfect for when you might find yourself collecting rocks (or treasures as we call them) with a 3 year old.

While I wish that I could tell you all that my post-baby-pooch is gone, that would be a lie. I am not my sister-in-law (who is a work out instructor, has four kids, and a freaking 6 pack). That’s annoying. Moving on…most days I love shirts and sweaters that flow because I just feel like I don’t have to suck anything in.

 I am not someone who makes a clothing purchase with the intention of only wearing it once for fear the paparazzi might splash my shameful pic all over the tabloids. To me, that is a complete waste of money. That is one of the reasons why I purchased these boots; I knew that they would go with so many outfits and that I would love them for a long time.

According to one of my best friends, “Big hoops are back”, so I am going to believe this statement and go for it.

Since I blog beauty usually…

What I Wore

1. Koh Gen Do Moisture Foundation mixing 003 and 002.

2. Too Faced Chocolate Soleil bronzer

3. Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick in Brazen Berry

4. On my eyes I used a cream shimmery shadow under my brow bone and on full lower eyelid. Then I contoured with a bronze matte shadow and lined my eyes with the EyeKo liner in blue.

5. I also made sure to do my brows using the Anastasia Brow Genius Kit in Med/Brown.

Question: Who else goes for comfort when shopping for clothes? Tell me I am not alone.
