Hello Cassidy Miller Photography readers!! My name is Isobel and I am so excited for the opportunity to share with you today! I am the voice behind holdenonbaby, a lifestyle and style blog that follows my life as a first time mama to my 14-month old son Holden and our style choices along the way. On the blog I share musings about parenthood and real-life style inspiration for fashion-forward families. I also do website design (I was lucky enough to redesign Casiddy’s site) on the side so if you are ever looking to revamp your website or blog, I’d love to work with you!

As a mama to a constantly-moving-leaves-a-tornado-of-destruction-in-his-wake-little-wild-child, I know how hard it is to find the time to put yourself together and get out of the house looking the way you want. So today, I wanted to share a few of my quick and easy style tips for sprucing up a mama’s wardrobe.

1. maxi skirts and dresses. I don’t always feel like putting on a dress, but maxi dresses are so comfortable that you kind of feel like you are in sweats or a nightgown the entire time you are wearing them. They are my go-to outfit because despite the fact that , you automatically look dressed up and like you put some effort into your outfit. There are so many ways to style them (wear a t-shirt or sweater over top, knot them at the bottom and wear them with boots, etc.) and the great thing about them is you can wear them in both summer and winter depending on what you pair with it.

2. red lips. So you may be thinking that you can’t pull off red lipstick, but I have a little secret for you….this Revlon shade looks good on everyone! I never thought I could wear red lipstick until I found this shade. Just trust me and go out and buy it.

3. no heat curls. I swear once you try these, you will never use a curling iron again. You can leave the house in sweats, no make-up, and your no-heat-curled-hair and people will tell you that you look like a million bucks.

4. low-heeled ankle boots. I bought these from Target last year and they are one of my favorite purchases to date. They are so comfortable that I can easily run around after the little man in them and the fact that they have just a tiny bit of heel makes me appear dressed up.


And sprucing up your wardrobe is as easy as that!
