Style That Pops with Tide Pods & Me { video + giveaway }

In my late teens, when I was about 19 I think and doing a lot of vintage shopping, I began to view my wardrobe as a collection. I have pieces in my closet that I’ve had since the ’90s, some that were my mom’s from the ’70s, and more from my grandma that were from the ’60s. I loved finding unique “special edition” pieces to add to my collection and it’s still how I shop today. This creates and cultivates a sort of individual style that pops!

I learned along the way to avoid certain fabrics that were labeled “dry clean only” because it would defeat the “thrifty” purpose by spending more money to launder it. I look for cotton and polyester and a mix of anything that I can toss in the machine but because I do view my wardrobe as a collection, I am also meticulous about the way I launder my clothes. I’m not a big hand-washer but I do wash most of my items in cold and hang or line dry anything that isn’t categorized as “around the house” clothes, like sweats. These tactics help save energy, so they are also better on the environment, which makes my heart happy too.

Part of my meticulous laundering obsession is due to the fact that I was raised by a single mom, who instilled in me the concept that if I ruined something, there was no way I was going to be able to replace it with a new one. There was no extra money for extravagant items so if I stained or ripped it, that was the end of it. This came down to everything really, and taught me to take care of my belongings very well.

Taking care of the clothes hanging in your closet and folded in your drawers is key in keeping your wardrobe looking great and wearable for many many years to come. So I’m really excited about these Tide Pods. They have everything you need to take the best care of your clothes in one neat convenient package: detergent, brightener and stain remover all in one, which dissolve easily in hot or COLD cycles, my favorite!

    I use Tide Pods to make my style pop! I was skeptical as to whether they packed enough punch (they’re so petite) butI love them and won’t be switching back any time soon.

    I think the best way I make my style pop is to add fun accessories to bring attention to the outfit, or to simply add a random pop of color somewhere whether it be a belt or a scarf!

    I have learned that comfort is key and if I am not comfortable in something, I will not look as good! So I always go for softer, comfy fabrics and when I feel good, I look good!

    I use these little pods in my dishwasher, but have been skeptical about how they would dissolve in my washing machine.. especially with cold water. I may have to give them a try.. 🙂

    I accessorize to make my style pop. It’s the easiest pay to transform a day look into a night look.

    I go to thrift stores and get the best clothes and purses. Almost everything in fashion gets recycled. The color block trend has been going on for a couple of years now! The Tide Pods sound very easy. Just pop it in and let me clothes wash while I’m at work.

    I used to enjoy reading your blog, but seriously, 3 out of your last 4 posts have been sponsered!? I fully understand you want to make money from your hard work but this is way too much for my taste. Sorry Maegan, I need to unsubscribe for awhile. I generally skip over sponsered posts but when that’s all you’re posting….doesn’t leave much to read anymore. Sad. 🙁

    Honestly, this is annoying. I used to love your blog, but now it’s a sponsored post every other day. 3 of the last 4 posts are sponsored!! I’m glad you are successful and can make money from your blog, but you are going to lose readers if all you post is ads. I guess I’m done reading for awhile until this stops. I guess success got the better of you.

    I keep things pretty basic with solid colors, and accent with sweaters and scarves. Especially as a nursing mom, the scarf is my go to – a nursing cover in a pinch, and draws people’s eyes away from my stomach in these first few post partum months.

    To make my style pop, I mix high and low end pieces and find classic shoes to match. Also, sometimes I find statement pieces to help build several different looks. Unique accessories are a must. I like to buy from various artisans at craft shows and I buy unique pieces when I travel. My favorite statement piece is an elephant hair necklace.
