A Wardrobe Update + {$50 Pinkblush Giveaway and Review}

Before heading back to school I had the genius idea to take not one but both kids to the mall for a little back to school shopping. In my mind we were going to have this grand old time picking out cute clothes for Marcus, maybe swing by the pretzel place for one of those cinnamon twists, and have an enjoyable little morning. For a fleeting moment I thought maybe I'd even get to dip into a store or two for myself. I can't remember the last time I've stepped foot into a store for some good old fashioned clothes shopping - for the kids or for myself - so I was pretty excited about the whole ordeal.

It didn't take long (maybe 3 minutes in the first store?) before reality quickly came crashing down. Julia was fresh from a nap and ready to party, no amount of snack was going to keep her wiggly self content in the stroller, and it was clear that Marcus was less than impressed with our rendezvous.
We may have set a record for how fast we shopped. And, I was reminded why I do 99% of my shopping - both for the kids as well as myself - online, from the comfort of my home.

Now that Marcus' wardrobe has been freshly updated I figured it was time to do the same for myself. Not that long ago I did a major closet purge leaving many a hangers barren, and my clothing selection anemic, at best.
Since Julia's birth I am partial to things that are quick, easy, and comfortable (namely my workout clothes). I decided it was high time to step away from the athletic wear and into something more fashionable. Don't get me wrong, running shorts and workout tanks are a staple, but I was due to add something a little more trendy to my wardrobe.
Way back when I was maternity clothes shopping, one of my favorite trendy online boutiques was PinkBlush. I practically lived in their clothes for the duration of my pregnancy with Julia.

For nostalgia's sake, a throw back to my all time favorite PinkBlush maternity dress.
20 weeks along with Julia!
I can't believe I'm about to say this:
I really miss that bump!
When I discovered PinkBlush offered more than just maternity wear I was ecstatic. Just like with the maternity selection, the women's selection was phenomenal (and so affordable!). Transitioning from their maternity clothes to women's line was a flawless move. I had no problem adding item after item into my shopping cart.

Once I placed my order the shipping was almost as fast as my back-to-school mall trip with the kids.
Can I get an amen when a package arrives at your door? I couldn't tear into my goodies fast enough!

Each piece fits like a dream. Every item is so soft and has just the right amount of give so nothing clings too tight or settles into places I'd rather not emphasize.

Because every now and again I like to pretend I'm a fashion blogger, here are a few of my favorite PinkBlush pieces!
Scott and I have a date night coming up and I think this dress fits the bill just perfectly.
The cold shoulder! The slit (on both sides)! The pockets!
Coral Ombre Cardigan
I'm a sucker for a good cardigan. This one is so light-weight and soft. It's perfection on those cool mornings and chilly evenings. I have a feeling this will be my go-to cardi once fall rolls around.
This top is sold out
Similar - Ivory Navy Striped Floral Sleeve Top (almost sold out)
This one I wear on repeat. I can't get enough of it! It's great for lounging around the house, going out for a quick bite to eat with the family, or running errands. And, it's so much cuter than my workout clothes!
I've been wanting a kimono for the longest time. They're perfect for throwing over a swim suit (see photo above), tossing into a handbag for nights when it might get a bit cool, or simply just to cover up with something flow-y and cute!
I've been crushing on PinkBlush pretty hard lately, and because I love them so much I've teamed up with PinkBlush to give one lucky person a $50 gift card. All you have to do is follow the Rafflecopter prompts below! Easy peasy.

  3. I had no clue Pink Blush did regular clothes either. These pieces are SO cute. I have been SLOW to replace things in my closet since purging 100+ things out of it last year. I actually have been thinking about going through it again soon.

  6. I can’t even tell you the last time I went to the mall. I mean other than having to park in the parking garage of the mall and then walk through it to get to the other side and to the aquarium (New Orleans). The closest mall to my house is an hour away! Friend!!! I am loving everything. Especially that Grey Cold Shoulder Maxi! It looks fabulous on you! I love the length on that cardi! I think I need that!! And now I am crushing on PinkBlush too!

  10. Hot. mama. You look fabulous in all of these pieces!! I really love the striped top--totally reminds me of a SF item, but far less expensive, I'm sure! And I was definitely laughing out loud about your shopping experience. Why do things always go so much smoother in our minds?? Online shopping FTW!

  25. I WISH that striped shirt with floral arms wasn't sold out because THAT is so me! I'd love to find something similar!
    But seriously, when I found out that Pink Blush wasn't all maternity clothes, I did a little happy dance because everything they have is seriously SO CUTE.
