CAbi Stylish Clothes for Moms

I love discovering new brands. When I was introduced to CAbi (Carol Anderson by invitation) by my dear friend Jill Seiman, I instantly ‘??clicked’? with the concept–combining chic style and socializing.

The trend of in-home shopping parties has been taking off in the past few years. But CAbi offers something truly unique. All across the country, women are hosting CAbi Shows and are shopping right out of the comfort of their living rooms. CAbi consultants are known for creating the “ultimate personal shopping experience” where they provide style tips and the opportunity to shop while among your friends.

Hearing all about the shopping experience had be thinking ‘??how could I have never heard of this concept before?’? So I simply had to put CAbi through my MomTrends style test. I shopped the Spring 2012 collection (available until the end of June) and picked out a few hot summer trends–colored denim, floral prints and blazers. Don’??t you love how it all came together?

Here are the pieces to my chic summer ensemble:

When it comes to denim, the cropped Bree Jean ($98) is a winner. The fit is great (I’??m anywhere from a 0 to a 4 and the 2 fit very well) and the fabric is perfection–not too stiff and just the right amount of stretch. TIP: CAbi Consultants are ‘??fit experts’?? & receive great training on the fundamentals of proportion, so definitely ask for your Consultant’??s advice.

The floral top is an ideal layering piece. It can be worn alone or under a blazer, jean jacket or cardigan–the stretch cotton fabric is ideal for travel. This Printed Ruffle Tank ($64) works with blue, yellow, pink and green–making it very versatile.

Blazers are so trendy right now. I’??m wearing the Toss On Jacket ($98) and playing with color blocking. This pop of color–geranium–is a fun way to add a layer on to your look without adding bulk. With a white tee and colored bottoms you can have an affordable summer outfit that will always look fresh.

When it came to completing the look all it needed was a simple sandal (old favorites from Tory Burch) and a few pieces of jewelry (love adding turquoise jewelry whenever I can during the summer–this pair is from Melinda Maria) and I was done–simply stylish and effortless.

 

Need more inspiration? Check out the CAbi Canary–their style blog that’??s packed with tips on how to wear the line and feel your best in all your clothing.

These creative, home-based businesses are perfect for moms that want to carve out a career but don’??t want a traditional 9-5 office culture. CAbi Consultants share a love of clothing in the most organic way–by gathering friends.

    Look at how pretty you look! Love that ruffled printed shirt on you and that blazer would be a key piece for the wardrobe for sure:)

      I am using the blazer a lot–especially when I travel. It’s a good investment.

    Nicole you look so stylish! I love the CABI outfit on you. The Mamas and I just styled a fashion show to benefit the cancer care center in our area. The models were all cancer patients and one of the clothing lines we used was CABI! Great line and you can’t beat the quality. Happy Monday thanks for sharing! xo Kimberly

      I don’t wear yellow by my face (I have olive skin) but I love it in jeans.

      The CAbi ladies are trained in fit–you should look into it.

    Cute! I love yellow but it totally washes me out. I might have to try it in jean form!

      Jeans could work!

    I heard about CAbi a few months back from Jill also. It seems really great — I’m gonna check it out. I’m totally loving the cropped colored denim on you and those earrings. Turquoise is a fave of mine in the summer as well. And the backdrop for your photos?! **Squeals**

    • http://momtrends.com Nicole

      That’s my roof! Isn’t it awesome? And I agree turquoise is perfect for summer. It simply goes with everything.

    I just love this yellow with the orange/reddish jacket – the pops in colors are just fab…and your shirt brings and tied them all together. Spectacular.

    • http://momtrends.com Nicole

      Thanks, I picked the outfit for travel so having the option of a blazer is key.

      They do seem to be popular. Thanks for stopping by Andrea.

      I didn’t find out about them until this year and am thrilled. These fashions work for modern moms or anyone who loves fashion.

  • http://www.kirstinmarie.com Kirstin Marie

    I love how bright & fun this look is! Those jeans are fabulous!

    • http://momtrends.com Nicole

      I wear jeans ALL the time. This pair is replacing a pair from Lily Pulitzer that just sat too low on my butt. This is modern without being too revealing.

    I want your whole outfit! Love it so much!!!!

    Love the colors of your outfit. Never thought about combining red + yellow–but it looks great on you! Have to try it in my next necklace :)

    • http://momtrends.com Nicole

      Oh, I’ve been mixing up all sorts of color this summer. As long as the colors have a similar intensity I think it is safe.

    I love Cabi! I think the way you work their look is important. You can easily make it look younger or older. I am 33 and have bought many pieces over the last several years (I have a friend that sold it) I also like how you can transition the pieces over the years too :)

    • http://momtrends.com Nicole

      Agree–it’s all about building a great wardrobe.

  • http://www.delightfullydarling.com Teresa @ Delightfully Darling

    I am in love with EVERYTHING that you are wearing! This is the perfect summer outfit. Thanks for bringing CAbi to my attention, I now have another store to stalk ;)

    Great giveaway! I’ve read about Cabi and it looks like a great service and time saver for the busy lady/mom who is always on the go!

    I am a big Cabi fan and I am constantly amazed at how often I reach for the Cabi pieces in my wardrobe, and how often those are the pieces for which I am complimented. You look adorable in this outfit, and I have loved each piece separately, but you really rock them all together. So Cute!

    Cute top! Love the ruffles.

    CAbi sounds so cool- I love the concept of shopping from home.
