Hey Mamanistas! Are you having as much fun with my Labor of Love wardrobe as I did?! I love that all my looks were not only the perfect balance between classic and modern, but actually affordable and (mostly) purchased from the stores where we all shop.
For this week’s fashion rundown, I am selecting my fashion favorites from Episodes 2 & 3 and sharing similar looks complete with shopping links. These 10 pieces range from timeless to fun, and make a great addition to your wardrobe if you want to freshen up your look or try something new without breaking the bank!

Item #2: Leopard Coat
Item #3: Steve Madden Black Kitten Heels

Item #7: White Madewell Jeans (my favorite jeans in the world!)
Item #8: Banana Republic White Sneakers
Item #9: Rust Suede Jacket
Item #10: Jeweled Belt
To add the finishing touch to most of my looks, I had a signature set of jewelry I wore throughout the season. This is something I also do in real life. I love simple jewelry that I can wear with different looks and that become synonymous with me. Delicate chains when it comes to necklaces, and hoops or diamond studs when it comes to earrings are my preferred choices. In the show, I wore this — gold heart bracelet in a set of two, this — pretty double strand heart necklace, and these — simple gold hoops. Creating your own signature set of jewelry is not only fun, but simplifies your daily wardrobe routine saving precious time in the morning.
I was fortunate enough to work with an incredible stylist on the show (Annie Bloom) who understood my style and effortlessly blended my own wardrobe with pieces she selected for me. I absolutely LOVE everything she picked out and was thrilled to find new styles that I might not have selected otherwise. If you can, occasionally working with a stylist or wardrobe consultant is a great way to up your style game and discover new looks for yourself. When you find great pieces that you actually love, less is more and you often end up saving money (and frustration) in the end. Never underestimate the power of a great outfit to help you feel your best and give you a confidence boost! I hope you found a few pieces here to try out and to inspire your own wardrobe refresh. I’d love to hear (and see) what you’re putting together!
