Mom Fashion Ideas + Easy Style Tips
If you’re here, you’re most likely a stay-at-home-mom (or future stay-at-home-mom) of at least one princess. 👸 The house is a sh*tshow and you describe yourself as a hot mess on a good day. I get it.
You’re looking for simple style tips and trendy but “mom-appropriate’ mom fashion ideas to look and feel better and more confident. And, of course, you’re always looking for cute little girl fashions for your princess!
You probably enjoy a good homemaking hack or entertaining tip once in a while, too. Am I right?
However, you’re NOT looking for complicated DIY, time-consuming home improvement projects, or complex recipes that will keep you in the kitchen all day. Nope. Because, you and I both know we could pin those pretty pictures all day long on Pinterest, but never look at them again!
Like I said, simple solutions.
If this sounds like you, keep reading…
Need style tips, fashion ideas and inspiration to boost your confidence?
- Do you feel that you look tired and run-down from stress or lack of sleep?
- Have you become unhappy with your appearance? Is your idea of “mom fashion” a sweatshirt and Yoga pants? Do you stress out over what to wear when you have someplace to go?
- Is your closet full of clothes, but you feel like you have “nothing to wear” because you’re unhappy with the way you look?
- Are you thinking that if you could finally lose those 10 pounds, you might feel like your “old self” again?

Hi there! I’m Mimi…
A little bit about me…
I’m a creative entrepreneur, blogger, homemaker, wife, and soon-to-be-mom via special-needs international adoption (Bulgaria). I’m also a proud dog mom to four furry babies.
I love to laugh at myself. Honestly, I crack myself up. See, I truly believe that it’s important to not take life too seriously. And, you have to be able to laugh at yourself when you screw up – it beats crying!
In addition, I am always “on a diet”. This is because bad things happen when I allow myself to take a break from staying active and watching what I eat.
I love Martinis, ice cream, Mexican food and red wine, not in any particular order. These are the reasons I am always on a diet. 😉
Also, I am also obsessed with the Real Housewives, specifically RHOC, RHOBH, and RHONY. My guilty pleasure is watching “my shows” with a glass of wine after hubby goes to bed.
Belle Inspired is my creative outlet where I love helping busy moms look stylish and feel confident by sharing the simple solutions I’ve learned from both research and from personal experience. Because being a stylish mom shouldn’t be complicated or overwhelming.

More About Me
After graduating from the University of New Orleans and progressing in my career as a CPA, I knew that Accounting was not my passion. I had always dreamed of working for myself.
So, for the next several years I owned and operated a salon & boutique, specializing in swim and resort wear as well as sunless/indoor tanning.
I am certified as a Fashion Consultant by the Fashion Image Institute. After Hurricane Katrina destroyed my store, I began freelancing in cosmetics sales, personal shopping, and wardrobe styling. My expertise is in assisting the client in style selection, primarily for special occasions, employment search/promotions and lifestyle changes.
More recently I have devoted my time to being a creative entrepreneur through content creation and e-commerce.
In mid-2018, I founded Angelina Belle, an online boutique for baby girls and moms. For every order we donate $1.00 to Reece’s Rainbow to support special needs adoption. This cause is very important to us, and at this time my husband and I were in the middle of our our own special needs international adoption journey (Bulgaria).
My favorite “job” is caring for my family and managing the household. In addition, I love hosting casual, intimate dinner parties at home for our friends. Furthermore, I am passionate about helping others. I love sharing tips and inspiration for style and beauty, cooking, home décor, and entertaining ideas.
My husband, H. and I were dating when Hurricane Katrina happened in 2005. H. and I evacuated together for the storm, and have been together ever since. We got married in Honolulu, HI in April 2018. In July, 2019 we traveled to Bulgaria to bring home our daughter, Nadia. Our family lives in New Orleans, Louisiana with our fur babies Jake, Princess & Chance (two Yorkies and a Maltese) and two turtles.
