Why I decided to extend our return policy

I can honestly say that I have not shopped in a mall for over 5 years.  I am not sure if it's just the hassle of getting dressed, finding a parking spot, walking to the store and then waiting in line to either try on the clothes or check out.  Draining, right?  

I wanted to make sure that every woman who comes to Tara Lynn's, feels comfortable with their buying experience.   So I decided that giving you a full 30 days from the date you ordered to try it on, see if you love it and then return it if not, would be something that I would want as a customer.  I even made it easier for sending in a return.  If you do not love it, you can fill out a quick form on the site, print the mailing label and drop it in your mail box.  Trust me, you do not want to have to go to the post office, especially during the holiday season.  You're welcome.  You can check out our Happiness Guarantee here.

It's the little things that make life easier.  Have an idea to make  Tara Lynn's a better company?  I would love to hear it.

Motherhood and Fashion: The Struggles and Battles

Let's face it, if we get out of the house with two matching shoes, we are doing good most of the time.  Being a mother and being in fashion, do not always go hand and hand.  It does not have to be that way though!  Here are some simple tips that I have found worked for me.

1) Plan ahead.  I remember setting out my outfit the night before, so I did not have to wake up 30 minutes early, back in my school days.  The same idea applies here.  If you know what you are going to wear ahead of time, it will be quicker to throw it on and get out the door.

2) Allow time to get ready.  I have to get dressed 1.5 hours before we even plan on leaving.  Sadly, sometimes I am still running out the door some of the times, but trust me, this helps.  You know you will have a million, "mom's" sang at you during this 1.5 hours, so plan ahead and hopefully you can get it done in time.

3) Choose your battles.  Unless we are going to church (and sometimes even then) I let them choose what they want to wear.  Batman shirt, basketball shorts and cowboy boots, why the heck not?  Any mother/father that sees your child will know they chose their own outfit.  If they do not have children and look at you funny, give them ___ years until they have their own child.  They will remember that moment, and think, "I take back all the mean things I said about other parents".

4) Do not compare.  It's hard in today's day and age, where you can follow (OK, stalk) celebrities or bloggers literally all day.  They all seem to have the perfect life, the perfect outfit, the perfect children.  Sighs.  Remember, that they are women, just like you and me.  They have bad moment and only blog about the good ones.  They get PAID to look good and put on a good front.  They are NOT you.  Be happy with who you are, you are good enough.  Trust me, your children do not care if your face lands on the front page of Vogue.  They just want a loving mother who is there for them.  You do not have to spend millions of dollars to buy their happiness.  Just show up and be there.  Trust me, it will always be more than enough.

Above all else, just be yourself and love.  Your children will remember the time you spent with them more than anything.  I am sure all of you wonderful mothers have plenty of other tips as well.  Please share them in the comments so we can all learn from each other.

How to layer bracelets

Everyone wants to try it out, but many are too scared to give it a go.  We found this article from Andi to help ease some of those fears.

Layering bracelets is truly an art, requiring a bit of trial and error before you achieve the perfect mix of colors, sizes and metal finishes. I love this eclectic way of styling jewelry and am constantly inspired by the fantastic combinations pinned on Pinterest.

However, like I alluded to above, choosing the right arrangement of bracelets can be tricky. Here are some tips to avoid a bracelet layering fail.

Pick a theme: I know the look is meant to be eclectic, but don’t just slap on every bracelet you own. There must be a consistent element across each piece to complete the look, whether it’s the color scheme, metal finish, material or an underlying theme, like rock glam or tribal.

Smaller and fewer are better: One of the hardest parts of layering is deciding when you have added enough pieces. Avoiding chunky bracelets and keeping the number of pieces to a minimum (depending on the size, 6-8 is a good number), will keep you from looking like you’re wearing armor.

Add a watch: Including a timepiece adds practicality to the collection of jewelry, as well as another shape and texture. I think it is always good practice to mix high- and low-end pieces of jewelry when accessorizing, and a pricey watch can help make cheaper layering pieces appear more expensive by association.

I think the best layering chick out there is Andrea, hands down.  You can check out her instagram page to see how she layers different bracelets of all shapes and sizes. 

What do you think of the layered bracelet trend? Incredibly chic or just plain cluttered?
