OOTN: Jumping Into Date Night

IMG_3340

What is liberatingly comfortable, yet can be feminine, sexy and hug you in all the right places? You can call it a jumpsuit, a romper, a onesie, or boiler suit, but I call it my freedom suit. Yes dears, that is exactly what wearing this simple one piece suit feels like, and it has me jumping for joy!  Now I admit, it didn’t look as attractive being displayed on a hanger in the H&M store, but with some imagination, I saw it’s possibilities, and it quickly became my go-to outfit no matter the occasion.

In a previous post (Uber Exciting Play Date) I accessorized this jumpsuit for a date in the park with the kiddoes. With an easy switch of a few accessories, adding heels, belt and a leather jacket, this playsuit was ready for a grown-up kind of a playdate, and my hubby couldn’t wait to play with me.

How many times have we walked past an item in a store, not realizing it’s true value? Imagination can be a powerful thing. In the wise words of Muhammad Ali “The man who has no imagination, has no wings“. Though we all spread our wings of creativity from time to time, for me, a good jump can be very liberating, especially when wearing my freedom suit.

 What has you jumping for joy this season?

OOTN: Keep Calm and Sparkle On

Hello my sparkly friends. New Year is in full swing and it’s that time of the year when everything is so sparkly, shiny and glamorous, including our wardrobe.

I’d like to think that I sparkle all the time, because I’m a girl who loves year round glitter, but this NYE I really wanted to shine bright like a diamond, and I plan do just that in my new sequin “Gold and Sassy” dress from Windsor. Yes, Windsor! No need to spend a fortune to look like a million bucks. Thanks to fabulous Christmas sales, my whole outfit cost under $100! Are you still looking for the perfect dress? Check out Windsor’s 24 Glam Looks to Ring in the New Year. I’m glad I did.

Balancing your bling can be a tough act, but when it comes to NYE parties, all rules go out the window. There’s no better way to ring in the New Year than in your most sequins sparkly dress. Live a little and forget about self restraint and add more sparkle when in doubt. Mixing patterns and sequins and throwing in chunky gold jewelry, is the only way to go. You’ll be the belle of the ball and won’t even need to worry about leaving the party when the clock strikes midnight.

The Cute Ugly Christmas Sweater

Tis’ the season of family gatherings, Aunt Edna’s indigestible mystery pie, flashy holiday decorations, and Bridget Jones style homemade reindeer jumpers — that time of the year when the ugly Christmas sweaters come out of hiding in the back of your closets.

Nothing says cheer like patchwork of reindeer, bells, snowman, Christmas trees and Santa in glitter, yarn or appliqué, and of course, all featured on the same sweater. The ugly Christmas sweaters that outshine the holiday decor, have been made famous by colorblind crafting Aunts and knitting Grandmothers everywhere. Unless you’ve entered an Ugly Sweater contest at a holiday party, no one wants to be caught wearing one.

Grandma knitted you something ‘festive’? Don’t fear, we have a few solutions up our red and green sleeves ;)  Before you give in to Grandma, we suggest you check out Walmart where you can find a not so ugly (actually, pretty darn cute) Christmas sweater to your liking. My beautiful daughter Julie and I have found a few, and, being that our little chihuahuas are total fashionistas, we found matching sweaters for them, too!

Why be ugly, when you can be fabulous! What do you think?

My outfit: Plaid leggings: No Boundaries / Sweater: Faded Glory (similar here) / Boots: UGG Marielle / Pretty Kitty’s outfit: Red-Reindeer-Dog-Sweater

Julie’s ensemble: Seamless Leggings: No Boundaries / Sweater: Faded Glory / Boots: UGG Classic Short / Harley’s sweater: SimplyDog 

Can’t you hear your Grandma saying “if you can’t put an ugly sweater on your cat, than put your cat on an ugly sweater.” Lucky I have sweater loving dog fabulistas, hehe. So now’s the time to beat Grandma to the punch, make a quick run for Walmart, and put on your best Cute Ugly Christmas Sweater for the festivities! Don’t forget to dress up your furry friends, too.

Wishing you all Fashionable and Happy Holidays!

 

 

A FreeUrCloset Merry X’mas Threesome

“What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store.
What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more. “
We love Christmas!  And even though we now live in two different states, this Christmas our only wish was to get together and do what we do best – pose for the camera! Finding a true friend who will stick with you through thick and thin is a rare gift and so we cherish our forever fabulous friendship.  These two cray cray ladies will always find a reason to celebrate, drink, shop, drink some more …and worship David Gandy. After all, only your best friend understands that when you say “I saw my boyfriend today” you are not referring to the hubs, but rather the hot guy that has no clue you even exist (hihihi).
So this holiday season, we decided to don our Sunday “X’mas” best and hit the mall for some serious bff retail therapy!

OOTD: Uber Exciting Play Date

IMG_3168With all the cleaning/cooking/shopping/party planning, Holidays can be quite stressful, but never fear, H&M’s cleaver jumpsuit is here! Woo-hoo! Forget about staring at your closet, trying to find just the right top to wear with your pants. How fabulous is it to crawl out of bed and reach for only one thing to wear? Priced at only $19.95, this khaki jumpsuit is super versatile, too. It’s just the thing to wear for shopping, running errands, PTA meetings or to a much needed de-stressing play date at the park.

Styling this one piece is a no brainer. I usually wear it with my black Chuck Taylor high tops, throw on a black beanie, a busy print infinity scarf, and I’m out the door. Because this jumpsuit is so versatile, recently I’ve even dressed it up for a date night, and you can read all about it here: Jumping Into Date night.

As far as I’m concerned, fashion has no rules and transcends age and gender. To prove my point, for this post I went back to my NYC girl roots, and had fun dressing up old school style, since it seems to be back in a big way (ahhh, only wishing I had kept my old Timberlands and Dr.Martens, hehe).

Onesies, comfortable jumpsuits, playdates … why should the kids get to have all the fun? Not on FreeUrCloset blog. Here kiddos get to take pictures of mommy having a blast at the park,😜😝 Of course, I let them join in when we finished with pictures … and the last photo here describes it all 😱.

 Hoping you all find ways to stay stress free, and enjoy the four day weekend with your families!

Saturday Man Candy: Babe-a-licious Bearded Ben Dahlhaus

Ben Dahlhaus Man Candy 5

Yes, ladies (and gents)…PRAISE SWEDEN…for giving birth to Swedish Fish and this week’s Saturday Man Candy perfection! His name is Ben Dahlhaus and he can “Ben-d” us over anytime. No, really Ben Dahlhaus, take us now please. HARD.

We don’t know much about Ben, other than he has us daily worshiping at his altar as we stalk his Instagram account. And his Facebook account. And, yes, even his Twitter. And after staring (and salivating) over his delicious face and bod, we’ve become believers and have many reasons why we can’t resist wanting this Sexy Young Beast :

Ben looks like a HOT JESUS.

And there’s nothing Christian about what we’d like to do to our bearded Godly man.  We feel blasphemous for thinking of Ben making us scream “Hallelujah”!!! But when it comes to Ben, we just can’t put our ladyboners away. Forgive us Father for we have sinned. And sinned and sinned and sinned ;P

Ben’s beard says SEX. All. night. long.

Ladies, just think about the damage that long and thick beard can do downtown. We’d like to call it the “orgasm booster” that is sure to take us to heaven and beyond.

Ben Dahlhaus 10 Ben Dahlhaus 20

Soulful, Sultry, Hippie…and YOUNG, just how we like ‘em (hihihi).

We love that sensuous, sultry and sad-looking puppy face. Come hither, Ben, we’ll console you.

We want to pet Ben. And his “puppy”. Slurpppp.

And we are mighty sure his “puppy” is as massive and impressive as his beard.
