Can you believe that Back to School shopping is already underway? (It seems like summer just started!) Rather than wait for the last minute, I’m trying to avoid the craziness by getting ready now.

One of the ways that I simplify clothes for the kids is by purchasing solid color, simple styles that can be worn frequently. (Odd patterns/styles/colors always end up being a waste of money.)

Gymboree is having some great sales right now.

Pink Polo Dress – $18.39

100% cotton, lighter weight. The knee length and short sleeves keep it modest.

Navy Twill Dress – $22.46

Medium weight Cotton/Poly blend. It’s sleeveless, but can be paired with a turtleneck underneath or a sweater.

White Classic Cardigan – $11.99

Cotton/Acrylic blend sweater that would perfectly compliment either of the dresses.

Love fashion and jewelry? Ever wanted to start a home-based business? Becoming a Stella & Dot Stylist may be right for you. Here are a few reasons why it’s ideal for busy moms who don’t have time for traditional jobs:

You can be your own boss:

You choose the hours; you call the shots. How much you work is up to you, with no minimum requirements. Work during naptime, during school hours, vacations, etc.

Earn income & freebies:

Ok, I’ll admit it: the freebies are the biggest incentive! Stylists can earn 25% – 35% commissions on sales, shop at a discount up to 50% off, AND score tons of products and perks.

Training & support:

Starting a business can be overwhelming and scary. With Stella & Dot, help is always available. Join a community of strong and supportive women who want to see you succeed.

Curious how Stella & Dot works? There are 3 selling options:

One-on-one styling:

Have a good sense of style? Help another lady to find the right accessory to take her outfit to the next level. Great for those who aren’t super outgoing and do better outside groups.

In-person trunk shows:

Social Butterflies will love hosting small and large events. Most Stylists make the highest dollars per hour here, so if you’re a “people person,” try it.

Online trunk shows:

Take the party online by collaborating with a friend. You provide the posts she can share with her network, and you both earn as they shop through your online boutique.

New stylists who join now through June 30th will get $350 in FREE accessories, a FREE best-selling Aven necklace, and $199 cashback when they sell $1000 in their first 30 days.

Stella & Dot’s Stylist Sign-up Special: Free necklace, cashback, and more!

Ulta: 3 Free Hair Events

In need of some pampering? Head to Ulta and receive a free Quick Summer Style during the Hair Happy Hour. There are 3 of them scheduled: June 9, 16, and 23, from 4:00-8:00 pm. There are no appointments being taken, so if you want it, go early.

They don’t specify what the hairstyle actually is, but I’m thinking an easy up-do, buns, pony, etc. Should be a fun time, no matter what.

Does Wearing a Long Skirt Make You Seem Religious?

If you wear a long skirt, will other people assume you’re religious? According to this article from The Forward, some may think so, judging by the title:
“When Secular Jewish Women Wear Long Skirts, Confusion Ensues.”

Frankly, I consider this to be a lot of hoopla about a non-existent problem. I know many ladies, from Ultra Orthodox to Atheist, that just enjoy wearing long skirts because they’re comfortable. (I’m one of them!)

Modest dress is practiced by every religion, but no one equates a long skirt, which can be purchased in any Walmart or Target in America, with a head scarf, or a prairie dress, or anything like that.

As for the “confusion” long skirts create—seriously, no one is confused, but whatever—does it really matter what a stranger assumes? Not one bit! Ladies shouldn’t be judged on their hemlines, period. Wear whatever you like best and let others do the same.
