HEADS UP! Right now Cable & Gauge is having an awesome sale! $10 Sale! They are clearing out for the new season, so go snag these now (including the cardi below). (Sale ends 8/31 or while supplies last). I am definitely buying! As you will read below- love their quality and style!
Look down and take notice of what you are wearing right now- tee shirt and jeans, yoga pants, pjs… I will admit I am still in pjs. Women (especially moms) often fall into the rut of wearing those items because they are comfortable (both physically and emotionally). But lets all get out of that rut- and challenge what real mom style means. And it doesn’t mean you have to chase down what ever trend is showing up on college campuses. Classic items, with a few trends thrown in, can help you create a timeless style profile. I was recently at a conference of bloggers (who mostly happen to be moms). And I loved to see all their personal style shining though- and not one pair of yoga pants was there! (well at least not in public)
That’s why, I was excited when Cable & Gauge approached me to review their clothing and give me a chance to turn up the dial on my mommy fashion. Cable & Gauge offers classic and comfortable style for women. They have essential pieces to create a foundation for your wardrobe, as well as on trend pieces to show off your personal style. I would have loved to try one of those fab maxi dresses- but I know my vertically challenged stature calls for a “petite” size, so I had to pass.
But I did find a great black and white striped shirt and a lace embellished waterfall cardigan, both of which I am loving! These pieces are perfect for my “mommy lifestyle”. Not too dressed up or too casual- and perfect for layering (mommy style must!). Jeans and tees are actually the most appropriate wardrobe for me on most days. But again, it’s about challenging yourself to not just throw on a plain tee and be done. Try adding a fun print (or my fave, an accessory) and it will show you had some thoughtfulness in your attire. I love the buttons up the back on the b&w tee and the lace on the cardi. These little details add interest and style!
I also have to mention the quality of these items. I often find myself shopping the clearance rack at my local “supercenter” or discount department store. And that is a perfectly fine- great way to stay in budget and add a few items to a tired wardrobe. But sometimes the quality of those items is just not there. Great for a few seasons of wear- but almost more like “disposable” apparel. Not so with Cable & Gauge. The material in these items is sooo soft and I just know these are going to be faves for many seasons to come.
I love doing my weekly NBC4 Top Deals Segment each week. But honestly one of the things that gets a little stressful is the wardrobe. The anchors I work with always look so professional and “put-together”. I can’t wait to wear the beautiful turquoise cardi next week (see it “live” here). They often tell me solid, bright colors do best on camera- so this will be perfect. And again it will look professional yet still reflect my primary profession of MOM!
I highly encourage you to check out Cable & Gauge. And right now if you purchase any full priced item, you can get an extra 20% off using the code M202014
I was provided the pieces in the post buy Cable & Gauge as compensation for the review. All opinions are – truthfully – mine.
