When I started my blog, I had so many ideas of what I wanted to see. I started it a few months after my son Ryland was born, about 2 years ago now – and as a young wife, a new mom, a youth pastor alongside my husband, a business owner, a Christian, a friend, a daughter, and a lover of so many different things, I didn’t know exactly how to find my niche and each name that I came up with for myself just seemed too restricting. After putting it on hold, it was on New Years Eve night 2014/15 that I settled upon Faithfully Beautiful.
We know them & let’s face it, we ARE them. The MOM BOSSES in your life that you know work so hard to provide for their family all while being an awesome mama! I am inspired daily by so many of my friends, fellow bloggers, and business owners that I meet that are running businesses and babies! It is simply amazing that we live in a time where it is so accessible for moms to make a living from home! For the mom boss lady in your life, I have put together some gifts that I’m sure she will absolutely love!
We all love to be comfotrable, am I right? You know what else we all love… to know that we are protected (especially our kids) from the sun. Living in Florida, there is never a day that goes by that we aren’t worried about the sun shining down on us, but generally many people don’t think to add sunscreen unless they are heading to the beach or the pool. It’s more important than ever to make sure you are keeping your skin safe & having clothing that does it for you is a great way to live hassle free!
Shopping. It’s all fun & games until it’s time to check out, am I right? I am going to be real with you for a second… as much as I love clothes and getting something new in my closet – I NEVER do it. Maybe I’m alone, or maybe there are tons of other women who are like me and feel guilty about buying something solely for myself, but I haven’t purchased much new clothing in my closet for years. I got to the point, though, that I realized that I needed to update a little bit & get some great pieces in my wardrobe – the next problem, however, was how expensive shopping can be. That’s when I came across thredUP and now I’m sold!!
Fall and winter are my favorite seasons – it’s weird to say that since I really do love being at the beach and the pool but there is something just magical about the cooler weather and the excitement around these next few months. Since we are in Florida, we honestly don’t get much of a relief in the “fall” but that doesn’t mean that we can’t still try our best to show off our autumn style! Today we rocked our flannel and booties and dreamed of the days when the weather allows us to do it more often!
There is a certain stigma that us mom’s face: That if we are living our lives in leggings & mom buns that we are lazy or that we must not “care” anymore, but I challenge you to look at it differently! Your life is active, adventurous, crazy, busy, full of love & cuddles, and for THAT you should be able to dress comfy! I don’t want to feel like since I live in loungewear most days that I am any less than a mom who dresses to the nines. For me & my lifestyle, my uniform matches perfectly and I am proud to be a boy mom of two tiny guys who keep me on my toes!
If living in leggings is wrong, I don’t want to be right! This may sound like a cute and funny quote, but I’m actually dead serious. Some may call is a problem or “lack of style” but I think some of the cutest outfits around sport some adorable leggings & so that is why I showing you some of my new favorites – because leggings don’t have to be those old worn out black yoga pants that you’ve been wearing for years – they can be the signature piece of your outfit!
Those who are parents know that being a mom is a full-time job. No matter how old your kids are, it seems that a mother’s work is never done. That’s why when it comes to fashion, it’s important to have some pieces that work overtime for you while staying stylish. Sometimes it feels like there is never enough time in the day, so having functional fashion that can easily transition to different parts of your day is essential.
