Super(model) Moms: Meet Jayme

Jayme and baby Tyler

Jayme, husband John and Tyler

I am so excited to introduce to you to one of my oldest and dearest friends, Jayme! Jayme and I have known each other for almost 15 years. We were sorority sisters at Indiana University and have been best friends ever since. Jayme is one of the most gorgeous girls I know, inside and out. Her and I have this very bizarre sense of humor and whenever we get together we just the point of tears. And don't ever challenge her to a dance off, because she will win. She does a killer J.Lo and Britney Spears impression!

Jayme's other baby, Mac (this was a few years ago, but I love this picture!)

Jayme is one of those women that seems to balance her life just perfectly. I envy her for that! She has a son, Tyler who will be 1 in February. She is a city mom who works almost full time, but still seems to find time to workout with a personal trainer, cook healthy meals and have date nights with her husband.  She is also gorgeous (as you can see). She loves to shop and she is very good at should see her closet! She is notorious for having many items still with tags on them, when I go to visit her in February we may have to have a closet intervention :)

Here is a peek into Jayme's style and what influences her...

How would you define your personal style?
I think my style has changed a lot throughout the years and definitely since becoming a mom.  If I had to describe it, I think the best way would be classic, with a hint of the current trend.  I think I can be conservative at times since I still need to dress for the office, but can loosen it up bit by adding a fun shoe or accessory on the weekends.

What are your top 3 stores to shop for yourself?
Ann Taylor LOFT
The Limited

What are your top 3 stores for kid stuff?
Old Navy/Baby Gap
Carter's, I can find such great deals here and for a growing baby, you don't have to spend too much money
If you could raid the closet of one celebrity, who would it be?
For sure the Kardashian sisters!

How has becoming a mom changed your style?
I am more aware of my body now and realize that not everything will fit me the way it used to.  So, I definitely take more time to try things on and not worry so much about the size of things, but more how it fits.  I definitely have invested in some nicer pieces that I can mix and match between work and being home.  I think my style has become more sophisticated, although I try to keep up with the trends, but realize they don't all work for me. 

Who inspires you?
That is a tough one, there are so many people, but I would have to say all the women in my life, my mom, my sister, my wonderful best friends and some of my close friends that I work with.  All have such different things to offer and inspire me in different ways!  And I could not forget, my supportive and loving husband, who is one of my best friends!

What is one item you would love to splurge on this season?
A new handbag...I love my LV monogrammed speedy that my husband bought me a few seasons ago, but this year I would love something that could easily store my belongings as well as some necessary baby items too, but still stylish and goes with anything.  I love this Gucci bag...

What are some of your favorite budget items (things from target or CVS?)?
I love the cleansing and make-up remover wipes from CVS, they smell better and are a nicer  texture than the Neutrogena ones and cost less.  I love Milani lip gloss from CVS, great shades and they usually have some sort of special on them.  My husband discovered a great shampoo and conditioner by Infusium a couple years ago that we have been using ever since and now I don't have to spend $20 on shampoo.

What items can you never leave your house without?
Hand sanitizer, chap stick and lip gloss, oil absorbing sheets and of course my cell phone!
What are your favorite beauty items?
Last year after a facial I got from a local spa here in Chicago, I bought an antioxidant serum that I absolutely have fallen in love with.  It helps get rid of acne scars and other blemishes while making your skin look smoother.  I also love this leave in conditioner and toner by Ojon Hair that I got as a free sample at Sephora and now have bought more of.  You can use it as styling spray or just to give your hair a lift if you are in a hurry and don't have time to wash you hair again before going out, plus it smells great.


  1. I adore those millani lip glosses too! They are the best and you cannot beat the price. I am a chicago person too! Fun!

  2. I love trying out new lip glosses so I will have to go look for this. Your friend is so pretty and what an adorable family she has!

  3. Great post!
