• Secrets of Stylish Moms: Abi


    Secrets of Stylish Moms is a new(ish) series here on Say Yes, that is all about stylish moms and their tips and tricks for looking and feeling good… all while chasing the kids around. Up next we have Abi of Vanilla and Lace. Abi resides in Portland and blogs about simple DIY’s (my favorite), easy recipes, and her 7 month old baby, Beck, who has the sweetest blue eyes. She also runs a photography business as well as sells the cutest clothes for kids (and adults!). Speaking of style and tips, Abi did a post a few months back you should check out….all about her mom uniform!

    keep reading for more details and pictures of Abi’s look…


    Abi! Tell us more about this look and that amazing jumpsuit!
    As a new mom everything I wear has to be comfortable and practical (no mini skirts here). That said, I’m not doomed to wearing yoga pants everyday! A dressed-up jeans and tee combo, a simple striped dress, and jumpsuits are my go-to right now. I know jumpsuits scare some folks but they can be super flattering and are incredibly comfortable!

    what is one favorite piece in your wardrobe that is both practical for a mother and stylish?
    The breton striped tunic from Boden. It’s comfortable, durable and not too short. Totally a staple!

    What would you consider your go-to ‘momiform’ to be?
    A chambray button-up and a pair of skinnies.

    what’s one thing you do every day for yourself?
    Eat chocolate


    favorite movie: Moulin Rouge
    favorite book: The Glass Castle
    favorite place to vacation: anywhere tropical!
    band on permanent rotation in my spotify: Foster the people
    your go to accessory: A minimal pendant necklace
    one item in your makeup bag you can’t live without: Benetint cheek stain
