So the deeper I get into this whole blogging life, the more I have found I have a passion for fashion. I mean, duh. I’ve always been a self-proclaimed shopaholic, but lately I’ve been finding myself posting more about style and less about momming…
Also, I don’t know how this shirt got so wrinkled? But I guess I’ll just blame it on #momlife. These little monsters either spill something on me or wrinkle my outfits on the reg.
Anyways. I’ve preached about my love for shopping small and supporting local businesses before. I really just love it. I’m not really a fan of commercial things that everyone has. I like to have things that not a lot of people have. On trend? Yes. But also unique. So that’s why you can usually find me shopping at small boutiques as opposed to department stores. Usually.
When I found out that one of my blogger friends also owns an online boutique called Demure, I was immediately intrigued. Demure’s tagline is “classy. elegant. simple.” Well classy just so happens to be my middle name. So there’s that. I will come back to this in a second.
As a mother of two toddlers and wife to a fourth-year medical student, it’s not exactly easy to maintain the lifestyle we are accustomed to (#firstworldproblems). And in typical spoiled/entitled millennial fashion, sometimes I’ve spent more than I should have trying to satisfy my desire for new clothes. That being said, I’ve gotten better about trying to buy timeless staple pieces instead of things that are so trendy that they will be of no use to me a couple of months from now. Why does it have to be so hard to be a girl? I want to be trendy while still being classic. Is there no way to have my cake and eat it too? I just can’t accept that.
The solution? ACCESSORIES. I don’t know why I didn’t realize that all you need to update a classic look is a good pair of earrings or a necklace. Jeez. So easy. And way cheaper than investing in a new dress every time you have somewhere to go.
Anyways, that cool boutique I was telling y’all about? They have an earring subscription service. Umm, can you say YES PLEASE? For $10/month (or $100/yr), Demure Styled will hand pick a trendy little pair of earrings for you and ship them to your door. For anyone that’s experienced the wonder that is Birchbox, you know how amazing this is. It’s something you’ll look forward to every month whenever you check your mailbox. The feeling of getting that little package in the mail never gets old!
Obviously, I had to try this out. And let me tell you, she didn’t disappoint! The first pair of earrings arrived the other day, and I am obsessed! They look just like this Kendra Scott pair, and for those of you that don’t know, Kendra Scott is the classic girl’s best friend. Her jewelry goes with EVERYTHING.
So in conclusion, if you like earrings at all, y’all need to go sign up for Demure Styled. And even if you don’t like earrings, then a subscription makes a perfect gift for someone else! Have a good weekend, loves!
