Friday Link Up #38

My name is Andrea, I'm a 30 something year old Fashion blogger over at, and I specialize in Real Mom Style. Sharing outfit ideas, trends & how you can look put together even with kids pulling you in all directions. 

When I search out blogs, I'm looking for other ladies I can relate too, that's why I chose the following gals blogs & I hope you'll stop by and check them out too! 

1. That Chic Mom. I adore her fashion sense & that she's a mommy of girls that still looks chic no matter what. I can always find what I'm looking for when it comes to a chic and cute outfit idea. 
2. I'm new to Buttons & Birdcages, but what drew me in was her love for vintage fashion. Finding great pieces through thrift finds and working them into her wardrobe. 
3.Can you go wrong with the name Pink & Navy Stripes? Her style is completely my own. Great collages & outfit inspiration. 
4. The Closet Confessional, I love when I can visit a site and find Outfit Posts, inspiration for my day & that's exactly what drew me here! Plus her fabulous style!

Midwest Bloggers Love: Kuhfs

 This has seemed like the longest winter ever (how much snow did you get this weekend?!).We know how tricky it can be to add a stylish touch to your outfits in the winter time. Kuhfs, handmade boot cuffs designed by Amy Olson,  are the perfect solution!
We love highlighting fellow fashion brands- especially ones that are based right here in the Midwest. Kuhfs can be worn on any almost boot you already own- and can be paired with jeans or even your yoga pants.
Each of our Midwest Bloggers co-founders is sharing how they're put their own spin by styling their Kuhfs in their latest outfit posts.

Kuhfs are kept in place by applying the slide pin over your boots or  pants and then into the pre-sewn slide pin pocket. All Kuhfs are lined  with silicone to keep them in place! We are all in favor of any fashion accessories to add a little extra something to your look! They're all homemade by mom & entrepreneur, Amy Olson, who is based in Illinois.
Be sure to check out Kuhfs for even more fashionable boot cuff styles!
