Guest Post - Alison.

Hi there Ladies. A while ago the Sweet & Beautiful Alison from "Get Your Pretty On", sent over a Guest Post for me. I totally forgot to feature her on My Blog. Being super busy with a new baby does that to you. On top of that, I spend less time on the Internet now and most of that time is actually spent on the blog. Anyway, I am finally featuring Ms. Alison who is a Very Stylish and I repeat Super Sweet Mom of 3. I have only recently just discovered her blog but I am glad I did because her style as a Mom is totally what I am aiming for as a New Mom myself. Here she is. =)

Hello pretties! My name is Alison and I'm a mom of three, lover of all things pretty and recovering yoga pants addict. I started my blog Get Your Pretty On last year in order to provide accountability to myself for getting dressed on a daily basis. You see, I started working from home about a year ago and that's what started my spiral into yoga pants addiction (you can read more about my story HERE). My blog has evolved into a place where other moms come for outfit inspiration and help in building their own wardrobes on a budget. One of my more popular features is my regular Friday post called Payday Pretty. Each week, I challenge other women, myself included to take a small amount out of the weekly budget to do something pretty for themselves. I'm so inspired by what everyone finds! Today I'd like to share with you my outfit basics - those go-to pieces that I keep coming back to over and over again. These are the tried and true basics that comprise my wardrobe. They can be combined to create countless looks for virtually any activity. 1. Dark Wash Skinny Jeans Universally flattering, dark wash skinny jeans in forgiving materials build the base for so many different looks. They can easily be dressed up or down by swapping out flats for heels and cardigans for blazers. One of my favorite pairs are these stretchy, affordable ones from Vigoss.

2. Cardigans What can I say? I have a whole closet full of cardigans in every color of the rainbow (and some prints!) that get worn on an almost daily basis. Combine them with scarves and statement necklaces. Throw them over a dress or printed blouse. The possibilities are endless. Some of my favorite cardigans are these crew necks from J. Crew Factory. I just love this printed one!

3. Fabulous Flats My go-to shoes for every mom activity are cute and comfy flats. I've pretty much worn out my leopard printed pair!
4. Tees and Tanks The basis for building every look. You can never have enough quality t-shirts and tank tops to layer under everything. J. Crew has great high quality basic tees.
5. Scarves and Statement Jewelry Easily add style to any look with colorful printed scarves and statement jewelry. These pieces create an instant outfit and won't break the budget.

And speaking of jewelry, I'm giving away a Helzberg Diamonds Infinity Collection diamond necklace to one lucky Facebook fan. All you have to do is like my page on Facebook!
Thank you, sweet Ada for allowing me to guest post today!
