15 Slides and Mules That Will Have You Falling in Love With the Trend

I am having a major love affair with slides and mules these days. (Plenty of evidence on my Instagram, here, here, here, and here.) And though I’ve been wearing them here and there through the fall and winter, my heels have been just a tad cold (oh the things we’ll do for fashion … and comfort.) But Spring, and eventually summer, that’s when slides and mules truly get to shine. And you know, they also make a whole lot more practical sense in those warmer seasons.

Though let me tell you, as a busy mama, who usually has at least one baby in her arms; having shoes that you can slide on, without having to buckle, tie, or hop/shimmy/wiggle into, are basically lifesavers.

These are also the shoes I get the MOST questions about (basically any time I’m wearing a pair of slides/mules), so I know I’m not the only one digging the comfy chic trend.

Target’s New Line is Giving Major Madewell Vibes (and You’re Going to Love It)

Over the weekend, Target dropped their new line, Universal Thread, and Madewell fans are squealing. Not only is the new line for Target just plain good, but the classic pieces really do give major Madewell vibes at affordable Target prices.

We’re talking signature staples, all for under $35, including the incredible Free People shoe dupes (the original FP version are nearly $200) that are just $32.99 at Target. I am totally impressed.

If you’re a fan of that classic Madewell-meets-J.Crew look, you’re going to love Target’s new line.

18 Perfect Go-Anywhere Cute Tunics Under $30 on Amazon

As a mom to two little ones under three (one being a new baby), I’ve learned to really perfect the art of the “mom uniform.” The truth is, when you’re tired and busy and pretty much always on the go, you need an outfit that works over-time. I want to look put together, a.k.a., a go-anywhere look that can adapt to every situation … (this quote always cracks me up, and is definitely what I want to avoid!), but also need to be super comfy, covered (I’m usually bending down to talk to/chase after a toddler), and I need the outfit to require as little thought as possible (because let’s face it: mornings with kids are chaos.) Which is where cute tunics come in.

Oh my gosh, you guys, tunics.

A great tunic is the perfect go-anywhere look, and all of these are under $30 and available on Amazon. Tunics and leggings = Mom Uniform 101. | glitterinc.com | @glitterinc - 18 Perfect Go-Anywhere Cute Tunics Under $30 on Amazon by popular North Carolina style blogger Glitter, Inc.

I am obsessed. Me and basically every other busy mom on the planet. A great tunic – the kind that covers your bum and hangs in a somewhat loose, but still flattering way – that’s the dream. Throw a great pair of flattering leggings or comfortable high-waisted jeans on, and either cute slides or booties, and you’ve got the perfect uniform. And since, surpriseAmazon has such an amazing selection of totally cute tunics, I can’t stop shopping. I mean seriously, thank goodness for Amazon — they have really cute tunics at crazy low prices and everything ships in two days or less so I can be in that shiny new tunic in no time.

So without further ado, and because I know you’re just as obsessed with cute tunics as I am, I’m sharing my 18 current favorite go-anywhere cute tunics, all under $30 (and plenty under $15); but hurry, they’re sure to sell out fast!

A Guide to the Best Winter Cold Weather Boots

When it comes to winter dressing, there are a handful of winter essentials that are always worth investing in. A warm coat is a given, and a good pair of cozy cold weather boots should be topping your list as well. It wasn’t until I moved to colder climates (Miami, Florida → Durham, North Carolina) that I truly understood why cold-weather boots – a.k.a., snow boots – mattered. When it’s legitimately cold and ice-y, there really is no other shoe to tackle the inevitable slipping and sliding. And trust me, I know here in NC, we don’t have it nearly as bad as it can be! When looking for a new pair of cold weather boots, I always look for boots that check off a few fundamental categories:

  • a rugged, non-slip bottom
  • waterproofing
  • insulation
  • style (a.k.a., not ugly or too too clunky)

The good news? You don’t have to sacrifice style for warmth when it comes to cold weather boots. Plenty of brands have really found a way to strike that balance between form and function, and most winter boots these days have at least some style to them. If you’ve been searching for a chic pair of cold-weather boots for the season, look no further; I’ve put together a winter guide to the best (and chicest) boots that will keep your feet toasty and dry!
