1 Stylish Mama | Madeline of Uber Chic for Cheap

An installment of my monthly series on wonderfully stylish moms! I’ve previously interviewed Elaine, Reachel, April, Cori and Grace. This month I’m so pleased to have Madeline of Uber Chic for Cheap!

Madeline is a seasoned style blogging pro. Her blog has been offering fashion advice and sharing great sale finds for over 5 years now! I’ve been devoted reader for a while and was able to convince her to hang out with me when I went to visit Utah over the summer. She’s every bit as lovely in person as she is on her blog!

Uber Chic for Cheap, obviously, focuses on affordable fashion but what the title doesn’t convey is that Madeline’s sharply edited finds are always very practical. She has a great eye for style and design but she also recognizes that dressing as a mother comes with its own unique set of challenges. I’ve bought more things I’ve seen on her blog than any other style blog out there. She GETS dressing as a mother while retaining your own sense of style AND not busting your budget. She’s got an eye I totally trust!

    That right there is her new baby girl Simone. Could you just die?

    I am completely addicted to liquid eyeliner and mascara. I never leave the house without them.

  • Do you have a sartorial security blanket? 3 of 7

    I have two things I always reach for. If I'm not wearing my chambray button up, I am wearing my ponte blazer (and sometimes I am wearing both).

  • You’ve just come into a large sum of money. (Congratulations!) What splurge piece would you buy for yourself? 4 of 7
    Anthropologie Dark Wash Skinny Jeans

    I would seek out the world's most perfect, petite, dark wash skinny jeans. I haven't found them yet, but when I do my wallet may be in serious trouble.

    Anthropologie, $218

  • What makes you feel pulled together? 5 of 7

    I don't really feel put together unless I am wearing a necklace. It's always the last thing I throw on when I'm on my way out.

  • If you had a child-free afternoon to shop, where would you go? 6 of 7

    Ikea? (I am only half kidding with a new house to furnish, I spend a lot of time at Ikea.) I would have to say the outlets in Park City. It's only 20 minutes from my house & the J.Crew Factory store speaks my love language.

  • What’s the hardest part about dressing as a mother? 7 of 7

    There are two; breastfeeding and dealing with a postpartum body. Of course they are coupled together! I have changed the way I dress completely to allow for the easiest breastfeeding access and to mask my softer middle.
