CJ Oldenkamp: Happiness is a Mindset

When you read CJ Oldenkamp's blog, Everyday Chiffon, you'll get much more than just a look into her fashion choices - you'll also find plenty of relatable and heartwarming content about motherhood and life in general. CJ recently became a mom to her young son, and she shares her journey through parenthood to inspire other moms that are having the same experiences. Her style is simultaneously fun and practical, and she provides links to all of her outfits online, making it easy to shop the pieces and recreate the outfits yourself.

When CJ started her blog, she and her husband were living in Colorado, and she had just started a corporate job. Since then, they have moved to Minnesota and become parents, and the blog has chronicled CJ's style and adventures since then. Her husband serves as her photographer and they collaborate on the blog together. They also love to travel, and share their favorite destinations online when they can. Here are some of our favorite outfits that CJ has styled, and how you can recreate them yourself.

If you want to stand out at an event and still be comfortable, a great way to do it is to opt for pants in a bold print. Here, CJ rocks leopard print pants with a flared leg and paper bag waist that make her legs look miles long. She pairs them with a black racerback tank to let the banks really stand out, and finishes things off with wedge heels to add some height and glam for a night out. If it's cold where you live, you could easily add a denim jacket or leather jacket for some extra warmth.

This cute outfit is perfect for running errands or just enjoying a casual weekend. These high waisted shorts have a little more coverage than the average short-shorts, so you can move around comfortably throughout the day. The distressing makes them a little edgier and more dressed up. A tie-waist pink tank top is cute and laid back, and the tie detail defines the waist. Slip on shoes and sunglasses finish off the look for summer.

The weather is finally warm, which means it's time to break out breezy, comfy dresses, like CJ is wearing here. She always finds the most stylish dress brands, and this purple sundress is so chic and would look great on absolutely anyone, regardless of your style or body type. Trendy white boots elevate the look even further, and CJ also carries a white crossbody bag, which matches the boots and is practical for a night out.
