by | Clothing Essentials: What to Wear, Where to Buy Clothes | 2 comments

In this post, we’re sharing some of the Frump Fighters team’s top picks in fashion and beauty from the past year!

Electric Depiller

If you want to bring your fuzzy sweaters back to life in an instant, this tool is your best friend! I give more information about how it works in this post about the Easiest Ways to Remove Pilling from Clothes.

Leopard Rubber Boots

These short rain boots are practical AND cute! They’ll keep your toes dry in the rainy season and are easy to slip on. The print adds a fun twist to any simple fall or winter outfit. – Corina

Rose Pink Rubber Boots

Can’t have enough Chelsea rain boots IMHO! These are such a fun color and offer the trending thick sole… I’ve gotten lots of compliments.

Dashing Diva Gloss Gel Nail Strips

I love having my nails done. But with three teen/tween boys, I don’t have the time nor skill to do them myself. And, getting to the nail salon with any frequency is a challenge, as well.

With these nail strips, which I’ve gotten from both Target and TJ Maxx, I can enjoy great looking nails (that last weeks!) with ease. They’re easy to apply/remove, inexpensive, come with a few ‘fancy’ options within each collection, and always garner compliments.

To make them last even longer, I add a clear top coat once I have them applied and also as needed!

This is the latest color palette I’ve tried.

Stars Above™ Pajamas from Target

I found these PJs during a much-needed solo trip to Target. There’s just something about wearing a matching PJ set that makes me feel like I’ve got it together and I really look forward to wearing these each night. Plus, they’re made of lyocell fabric and are super-soft and breathable, making them a great pick for the summer.

Madewell Bandana

Bandanas are such a fun way to add a bit of flair to an otherwise simple outfit. A plain knit shirt or sweater with jeans? No problem, just throw on this necktie and you look fabulous! I’ve loved the Madewell bandanas for years, and this one is such a simple design that fits with most things! Their floral ones are also a great addition to any wardrobe.

Cropped Wide-Leg Linen Pants

If you’re weary of wide-leg pants, these are an easy way in. Just be sure to tuck your shirt in fully or in the front to give some definition. They look best with fitted tops tucked in + a structured finishing piece like a denim jacket.

Linen Maternity Shorts

I wore these SO much during my pregnancy this summer and postpartum too! They are the comfiest, and actually cute with the scallop edge! Just make sure to lie flat to dry as the dryer might shrink them.

Structured Sports Bra

This sports bra offers really good support but also keeps your shape rather than giving you a uniboob like most sports bras! Love all the colors and wide range of sizes too (not just S,M,L).

Front Loading Washer Door Prop

After buying my first front-loading washer, I quickly learned the importance of keeping the door propped to avoid a foul smell from developing (which then transfers to your clothes). My kiddos were always bumping the door closed when they walked by so I found this handy little magnetic prop that keeps it open. There are certainly other easy ways to achieve this but I liked the simplicity of this design and that it just stays there so it’s easy to swing in place.

The exact brand I bought is out of stock but this one looks identical.

EWG-Verified Lotion for Face & Body

I went down a EWG rabbit hole earlier this year, looking to replace some of our household products with low-toxin alternatives. I’ve liked this lotion from Honest Company because it’s affordable and works well as a moisturizer before applying my makeup. I also use it on my arms and legs.

On that note, this baby sunscreen and kids body wash were the cheapest toxin-free options I found on Amazon.

SkinMedica Tinted Sunscreen

I love that it’s tinted and allows me to forgo foundation and concealer. Also it’s fragrance free, and can be used year round since it’s so lightweight.

Hands-free Belt Bag

This is apparently a lookalike to a more expensive popular brand’s, but it is great quality! I absolutely love swinging it on and being hands free when out with the kids. It’s also small enough that it could fit in your backpack bag or tote if you needed something larger or nicer for a date or church without switching all your items over. I can fit my small wallet, phone, keys, lip balm, and a few other small items.

Shapermint Body Shaper Shorts

I like that this is easy to put on (very flexible) but does smooth everything over. The shorts also stay down rather than rolling or scooting up.

– Corina

Everyday Nail Polish by Londontown

This nail polish is perfect if you’re looking for a bit of color with a natural vibe. It’s like clear polish but with an extra oomph. Plus, it hangs in there for about a week without chipping, which is awesome. And even when it does start to chip, it’s not super noticeable since it’s pretty sheer.

– Corina

Natural Lip Balm that Works as Base for Lipstick

This one is a favorite for a couple of us on the team! It’s made by a friend of ours and has become our favorite natural lip balm. Vanessa loves using it as a base before her lipstick for moist lips. Corina especially loves the Lavender one just before bed. They make her lips silky soft in the morning and the lavendar essential oil helps encourage sleep.
