Hey, hey!!  Can you believe how fast October has flown by? I'm one of those crazy people who start playing Christmas music on November 1st and get butterflies in my stomach when Target starts putting all the holiday decor and displays out.  (Yes, we practically live at Target. I have no insecurities about that fact either!).

I got around to reading a really amazing book this weekend that was recommended to me by a friend. The book is called "Girl Code" by Cara Alwill Leyba.  It always takes me by surprise how certain things and people get put into my life at just the right time and for reasons I might not completely understand right away.  One thing I do know is that when those things happen, they are super special and so I try not to take them for granted.  I literally couldn't put this book down!!  Do yourself a favor and check out her page and order your own copy here.  It will change your life!

I started this blog to document my favorite outfits and to maybe connect with others who love fashion.  Most of the time it's just little ol' me on here and I'm ok with that.  But let me tell you- when you have followers/friends reach out and tell you that what you are sharing inspires them to go out of their comfort zone and in turn makes them feel good about becomes more than just a fun little hobby.  

Here is my outfit from the other day that I literally copied straight off of Jade from A Spoonful of Style's Instagram (@Jscott24).  Go check her out, I love everything she posts, and this sweater from Target is $25!  I literally have worn it every other day since purchasing it and am going to get it in every color.  

Have a great week everybody.

Love you all!

Sometimes trends come along that either become classic or one of those that you cringe every time you look at an old picture and think "how did I ever think that looked cute?"  Like mullets, or socks with Birks, Dr. Marten sandals, or those awful oversize khakis that we all loved when I was in high school.  (Why!!!)  The hi-lo hems on dresses, skirts and tops over the last few years have been fun to incorporate into my favorite outfits.  Fingers crossed I won't want to cover my eyes in years to come when the trend has come and gone.

Awkward purse on the ground moment....not sure what was going on here!;)

So much craziness going on lately and there is just never enough time in each day to do it all.... 
It has been so WARM here and I am definitely not complaining. Me and my photographer (aka my 10 year old mini) have been getting bored with scenery out in front of our house so we stopped by the park on our way home from church so we could snap a few of this awesome dress from Old Navy.  It was such a gorgeous day, but because it was so sunny that we were hard pressed to get the right lighting to show off the matches up burgundy hues of my dress and shoes! Ha!  I guess we have a ways to go on that front.  

This little, baby blog has been way for me to share my ideas and advice on stuff that makes me feel good.  I reached a small little personal goal this week on Instagram and wanted to show my gratitude by doing a small giveaway!  I posted a few weeks one of my current obsessions, Glow Tonic by Pixi that I finally got my hands on (it's always sold out)! It's an exfoliating toner that I seriously cannot say enough good things about. 

Usually toners are a bit drying on my skin, but this one has cleared up all my dry spots and has left my skin bright and moisturized from using it daily.  I know, I sound like an ad campaign, but this stuff is seriously the bees-knees!! Because I love it so much, I wanted to give a bottle away to one of you!!  Here's the scoop:

1. Follow Cliche Moi? here on my site, it's easy and I will love you forever for indulging me with your viewable support ;)-. Plus, you'll never miss a new blog post cause you will be notified by email!! Yay!!!!!

2. Follow my Instagram @Clichemoi and tag 3 friends. (Additional entry if you tag 7!)

3. Comment below what you are currently obsessed with, I love trying out new stuff too!!

That's it, see its way easy and who doesn't need a good exfoliating toner? Duh. The winner will be notified on Instagram, giveaway ends on Monday 10/19 at 8:59 p.m. PST.

Seriously, thank you for all your support and for those of you who take the time to read about and comment on my shenanigans.  I read every single one!!

Good luck!

The possibilities are endless when it comes to layering. Slouchy tees and a blazer, stacked bracelets, denim jackets with everything.  I get asked for layering tips more than just about anything else.  My "secret" to layering the perfect outfit is starting with a point of focus. Something fun like a great statement necklace or a screen tee. One of my long time favorites is my textured leather cap sleeve vest I got at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale two summers ago. I have paired it with dresses, skirts, sweaters, skinny jeans, scarves and the list goes on.  I love this split hem jersey tunic that I scored from Marshalls a few weeks ago. It's soft and looks great tucked in or out. And the accessory options are endless which for me is always a plus!!
What is your favorite layering pieces in your closet?
Happy Monday!

My real name should be Jane!

A few weeks ago I started teaching preschool two mornings a week at the dance studio I teach at.  Yep, I now add that to list of full time babysitter (been doing that for years), dance instructor, fashion blogger extraordinaire (duh) and of course- full time mama and all that that entails.  So, just go ahead and call me Miss Jane of all Trades because I have a few more projects on the horizon!!!;). Luckily, preschool started a few weeks after my kids' started the school year so we had some time to get ourselves settled.  

This was my first day of school outfit, and it was well deserved!  

JCPenneys has been showing the love from my Instagram posts of these boots!!!

Hope you all had a fantastic week. I. am. Wiped!!

When I turned 8 my mom gave me a gold bracelet that I added charms to for years.  Fast forward a "few" years later and I'm now adding charms to my purse!! Whose jumped on the purse charm wagon? Don't judge, they are FUN! They were all over the place this year at Fashion Week and so I was totally excited when I received a purple suede fringe one by Purple Purse Foundation in my Fall Fab Fit Fun box last week. The Purple Purse foundation supports victims of domestic and financial abuse.  You can check out their mission here.

Don't forget to subscribe for emails and follow me on Instagram @Clichemoi.  Happy Monday!

Mom Date

Hey, hey!!  I met up yesterday afternoon for a last minute Starbucks/Target run with one of my best girls. I had yet to brush my hair (no surprise there) much less get dressed but you don't have to ask me twice when those two places are involved!!  I threw on my go to Gap acid washed skinnies, a Tshirt and a plaid and I was ready to go.  No fuss no frump!

Starbucks + Target + Gal Pal = Legit Mom Date.  
This tshirt is actually a mustard tone!

These studded booties from Target a few years back are my fav!

Steve Madden owns the fringe thing!

Have a great Tuesday!!

Easy Breezy

Hey there!  It was such a crazy week and of course I'm on the decline with my first cold of the season!! Boo!;(  Sunday's are usually pretty low key at our house but we do attend church every week.  I scored a great affordable pair of booties last week at JCPenneys.  I hadn't ever paid JCP much attention before they teamed up with Sephora.  I have gotten some really great basics from there that I literally wear all the time and these grey booties were a great find.  The Forever 21 pencil skirt I have in 3 different colors. I love how versatile it is whether dressed up or down and it's a perfect basic for all seasons!  And I really can't say enough good things about my little Target orange leather backpack, I'm sure you've noticed it on my Instagram feed non-stop!  I'm tempted to get another one in a different color (lots of color options online).  I wasn't really feeling super inspired outfit wise this morning because of how crummy I'm feeling but a chambray shirt and a statement necklace  made the whole look come together and polished. Easy!!

I hope you all have a great week!!

Plaid to meet ya!

Well, I've officially had to accept that it is Fall today.  Boo!!! (sorry for all you leave changing their amazing colors lovers but I'm a true summer girl!!). Lucky for me my ridiculous obsession with red buffalo plaid caught up with me while I was "school shopping" at my local TJMaxx.  Purchases since then have also included plaid jeggings and a plaid blanket scarf from the ever trusty Target, of course.

Anyone else out there sad to see summer go?  C'mon don't leave a girl hangin!!!
