In need of a clothing sponsor…

Dovetailing off of my bout with mom hair comes the mom clothing and the fact that I need a clothing sponsor. Why? Because I lost some weight (WOOHOO) and all of summer/warm weather clothing no longer fits. When I say that it no longer fits I mean that even with a belt it looks like I put on a huge sack and tried to cinch it around my waist.

Wearing clothing that is 3 or 4 sizes to big isn’t comfortable and I know… I tried it for while thinking that they fit until my kids pointed out that my jeans were sagging really bad and looked terrible. Guess that’s why they felt all bunchy, huh?

So with our Disney trip looming I am left pondering what do I wear and most importantly I don’t want to look like I belong on what not to wear! Of course now that I think about it maybe they’ll take all my old stuff that doesn’t fit and replace it with cute new stuff that does fit!

Anyway, then there are my kids who like to point out what I should and shouldn’t wear. Like Miss Me jeans, anything from Victoria Secret Pink emblazoned across my butt, and a variety of other things because I’m… old… gasp!

I have a few thoughts of what I think is cute, trendy, and mom of teens friendly…

summer outfit #1 summer outfit #2

summer outfit #3Of course, I’m not sure about the hat but maybe it’s time I take a risk and just wear it. To me these all look comfy, trendy, and would allow me to still chase the toddler around the Disney parks and most importantly not embarrass the teens.

Okay, so the cute outfits need money… lots of money and because I’m not rolling in the dough I think that I need a clothing sponsor or two.

So here’s my thought… they get me in a 3 -5 new outfits that have interchangeable pieces and I will wear then all over Florida (and here at home in Michigan when it warms up). Not only that I will blog about the awesome outfits they gave me, I will share pics of me enjoying the warm Florida weather in the clothes on Instagram, make fun 6 second videos and share them on Vine, Tweet about the great weather and how the clothes are great for it, and of course Facebook about it.

Doesn’t it sound fair?

I think so.

Okay, now I just have to find those clothing sponsors and get them to see things my way.

PS…. this is all in jest. While I do need some clothes to wear to Disney I don’t actually expect someone to give them to me.

    LOL! I feel you here. I have jeans in every size except the size I am currently in. My friends are the brutally honest types and keep telling me my saggy butt looks awful. I still want to lose a bit more weight, so I’m not ready for a new wardrobe.

    I love all those outfits! Maybe you should just reach out to a few companies directly! Also, are you part of Clever Girls? They had an op with Old Navy…I’m REALLY hoping to get that one!

      I applied for the Clever Girls op with Old Navy! I’m hoping that I get that one too because Andrew & Lauren don’t have anything either!

      I did break down and get jeans this fall because I just couldn’t stand it anymore! I love the new ones though… even if they’re from a 2nd hand store!

    Me too! I lost a bunch of weight and now nothing fits. It’s a good thing, I just wish I had the budget for new clothes!

    I am so jealous of you going to Disney! We just went in November but I’d do anything to go back!

      I agree… it’s a good thing but nothing fits and wearing all the old “fat” clothes is no fun at all!

      That’s what I thought. Comfortable, but still fashionable.

    I like the outfits you picked! We all need a personal shopper, right? Congrats on the weight loss, perhaps spring for one new outfit you could wear a few ways?

      Thank you! I’ve been searching Gap, Old Navy, and a couple other of the more affordable brands for some options. I even found a few things I really like!

    oooh Disney sounds sooooo fun!! I have never been. It sounds like a wonderful vacation idea though. I can’t wait to hear more about it. Good luck on your quest for sponsorship!

      This will be my 2nd trip and I can’t wait! I’m really looking forward to getting away from the cold & snow most of all though.

    Wouldn’t that be the best to have a clothing sponsor? You sure have cute taste, by the way!

      I think that it’d be great! Thanks…. I’m sure that my kids would say otherwise though.

      I think that it’d be a ton of fun! And so easy to do too.

    Super cute outfits you picked out! Sounds like a fun idea, you never know!

      True… but I’d have to start pitching now and have no idea who to hit up!

    It’s a great idea to have a clothing sponsor especially when you’re traveling. Think of the photo opps! Have fun at Disney.

      I know! I think clothing reviews would be awesome for vacations!

    Okay a few things. I’m also from Michigan and SO jealous of your Florida Vacation. We take one almost every year but this year we bought a new vehicle instead. Also, I love ALL of the outfits pictured here and if you find a clothing sponsor…send them my way too will you? lol

      You’re from Michigan?!?! That’s great news! I love finding new people that live here! Where are you from?

    When you find someone to give you clothes…please let me know :) Adorable outfits though!!

      Thanks… I should just see what my sister wants to get rid of from her closet!

    Those wedges wouldn’t get you through the line to Space Mountain with a fast pass even if they’re adorable :)

    And I totally think you could pull off the hat. I think we all deserve clothing sponsors.

    • Jackie
      February 12, 2013 | 3:21 pm

      I think all moms deserve one! Yea.. the shoes are probably out for walking all day. But totally an option for dinners!

    Cute outfits! You might need to rethink the shoes. Lots of walking!

      You’re right. Last time at Disney I wore tennis shoes the entire time… they’re just so boring though!

    I’d totally love a clothing sponsor, haha. I really love the first outfit a lot! I’m heading down to WDW next week and I realized I have zero clothes for Spring/Summer temps! I may have to copy that first outfit.

    • Jackie
      February 12, 2013 | 3:19 pm

      That first one is pretty cute! I think since a sponsor isn’t happening I’m going to have to start hitting up 2nd hand shops and seeing what’s on clearance from Old Navy/Gap!

    Oh I want a clothing sponsor too– especially if they pick out the cute clothes and accessories for me and pay for them of course :)

    • Jackie
      February 12, 2013 | 3:18 pm

      I’m still trying to figure out how to get one or two!
