Mom of Style Jo-Lynne Shane

Jo -Lynne ShaneIt’s easy to get lazy about looking stylish especially when you’re at home raising kids. Blogger Jo-Lynne Shane knows what I’m talking about.

In 2006 Jo-Lynne was a stay-at-home mom who had left a career in elementary education to bring up her three children. She started her blog, Jo-Lynne Shane, on a whim and grew it into a major lifestyle site featuring beauty segments, recipes and food finds, travel tips, and fashion.

Jo-Lynne found that when you work at home all day and the only people you see are your family and the mailman, it’s hard to motivate yourself to get dressed. She calls this the dreaded “frump rut” and has struggled hard to overcome it by creating a few go-to outfits that are casual, practical and stylish.

Today, I’m sharing some of  Jo-Lynne’s casual looks- many of which are based around “an obscene amount of jeans of various shades, colors and styles” which she uses to mix up her daily outfits so they don’t get stale.

Take look at this mom of style. Continue Reading
