*Let us just start this post with a few truth bombs*
TRUTH BOMB #1: I would hang out in jeans and t shirts all day ERYday if I could!
But….TRUTH BOMB #2: I love to get all cutesied up!! (yep cutesied is a word now)
Being a mom we get caught up in, well…everything but ourselves! And even if we want to dress somewhat cute, chances are those sweet angels of ours will either wipe a questionable something on you OR you kneel/step/sit/slip on something even more questionable! WHAT’S THE POINT?!? Whats the point of getting all ready and literally crapped on, on a day to day basis??
For me…If I get up, get myself ready, I feel like I can take on ALL THE THINGS!!! Granted there are more days where I am wearing yesterdays makeup, probably what I slept in the night before with a sweatshirt over it. And bust out the things that NEED to get done at home where no witnesses are in sight and only the neighbor kid asks “Why do you have so many freckles?” (Its called sun damage and age spots kid, that’s a whole nother blog post kid!! GEEZ!)
I thought that maybe putting together a few outfit choices and accessories might help a few of you out!
I would like to say I came up with these styles and pairings all on my own but, ha ha, NOPE! My Best Friend is a fashionista GENIUS! Her and I embarked on an up to date FALL fashion finding mission! And not only that but most of the cute clothes you see on the adorably perfect bloggers or models are ridiculous amounts of money! Again, having bodily fluids come at you from all angles in a stupidly expensive outfit makes no freaking sense to me! Enough talking lets get to some of the goods we found on our FALL FASHION journey!The Details: Who would’ve thought high waisted jeans would be a wardrobe staple! Ask my friend! I pretty much fought her on purchasing any sort of highwaisted anything. Guess what my favorite jeans are now?! Yep, these highwaisted Jeggings from Express. I got mine from the Express Outlet store. I have been wearing Express jeans/Jeggings for years and have ALWAYS loved the fit! I also LOVE the distressing on these because its not too much, just enough!

These amazing slip on mules GO WITH EVERYTHING and are soooo stinking cute!!!! I have to remind myself I have other shoes! Grab them up at Target!!!
This Pin Striped Button Up Shirt Dress is a MUST HAVE! I found this one at Target, of course!! They have several there right now in different prints that could be rocked through out all the seasons!! The brand “A New Day” at Target is killing it!!! All their stuff is adorable!!! Adorable and Affordable!!

Never underestimate the power of a good, comfy, denim shirt! I have seen them ALL over in many different stores. If you get a good one, it will last! I found this one a few years ago at Express. I LOVE IT! And then there are these camo pants!!!! I have seriously converted SO many of my friends to these same exact camo pants I got at Old Navy!! They are the perfect fit and stretch! Which in turn means, COOOOMFY! They fit in all the right places. They are the ROCKSTAR SUPER SKINNY MID RISE JEANS!!
Leopard, Leopard, Leopard! It is in and you KNOW that makes me happy!! It is such a good staple piece, either a t-shirt, cardigan, or a cute bootie, Leopard is IN!!

I love this Emerald Green Open Sweater: https://www.target.com/p/women-s-duster-open-cardigan-universal-thread-153/-/A-53855975?preselect=53404877#lnk=sametab
Easily layer anything with this gorgeous color! Emerald Green is one of the best colors this year!
Universal Thread is another brand at Target that is ON POINT! The maroon button up tie front top is from there! Plus its got that wrinkled type texture so it travels well, WIN WIN!!!!!
The billowy sweatshirt I LOVE!!! It is more of a crop/shorter top so utilizing those banging high waisted jeans will come in handy!!! It is casual but can also be dressed up!!! Find this gem at Express!
The just of this post is to let you guys know that you DO NOT have to break the bank to have stylish and comfy clothes! Mix and match with your core staple pieces!! And if you can drag a ginormous inflated balloon around with you while you’re at it you’re good to go!

I have wanted to start a blog, website, my own personal place to write and do whatever the heck I want, for years now! So, I’m doing it!
I have always had a love for all things beauty, all things fun and crazy, all things that I could share and recommend and shout to everyone “Try this! Or, do this!” I find it easier when I have a friend tell me, genuinely, how much they love something or loved doing something. That’s essentially what this website is for me, what this website is for you! A place for beauty, a place for fun and of course, with me involved, it will undoubtedly be crazy.
I cannot wait to share tips and tricks associated with whatever the heck I have up my sleeve for the month, for the week, and let’s be honest for the freaking day!! Whether that’s a project I’m working on, makeup I’m in love with, family/kid stuff that may even help you, or just a fun or crazy idea I might have. You just never know what will come out of this brain and mouth of mine! Sorry about that!
If you are ready to play along in this journey, I’m so excited to start, come on then!! Welcome to Crazy, Beautiful with Toni.
