Making Spring Fashion Fresh With 3-in-1 Tide Pods

By Sheila Arkee

For me, a busy blogging mom with a decided artsy side, my daily fashion has to be functional and yet entirely indicative of my creativity. When I’m editing my closet and figuring out what should be tossed and what should be purchased, my main goal is to find pieces that work with each other. One thing I’ve learned through the years is that you really do not need a ton of clothes, just the right items that work with each other and can be combined to form an endless possibility of options.

With spring right around the corner, I’m currently coming up with some fun yet functional wardrobe choices. Much like cooking, or putting together the perfect makeup look, an outfit is made up of several ingredients. My choices for the perfect spring outfit include the following:

Tide 4

–          A tunic that goes right above my knees – zebra printed and sequined, please!

–          A trusted pair of jeans

–          Basic black leggings

–          A ruffled cover-up

–          A fun pair of fuchsia heels

With these basics, I can make 3 fun and functional outfits that work for many occasions.

1. The tunic and heels by themselves are perfect for a nighttime outing.

Tide 5

2. For something I would wear for professional purposes, but to show my artsy side, the tunic, plus the cover-up and leggings.

Tide 6

3. And for a more causal, weekend outfit, the tunic with a pair of jeans is a winning match.

Tide 7

My clothes have to survive the beating of running around after a 5 year old Boy (with a capital B), so it’s really important that I am able to keep them looking good for a long time, with no fuss. If I can throw my clothes in the washer and know they’ll come out looking great, all the better!

Tide 1

Tide Pods are my new favorite laundry product. These things are so cool! With Tide Pods you can pop in and stand out. Simply pop these in, start your laundry machine, and presto, you end up with clean clothes.

Tide 2

A dissolvable 3-chambered pack that fits right into the middle of my hand, these handy Tide Pods contain the exact amount of detergent you will need for a basic load. While there are other similar products on the market, Tide Pods are the only one with 3 chambers for 3 ingredients that clean, brighten, and fight stains. Just one removes more stains than 6 caps of the liquid bargain brand! (Based on stain removal performance of one pac of Tide Pods vs. 6 doses of the leading liquid bargain brand base variant in a standard top loading machine.) Pop in a whole new kind of clean with Tide Pods.

 

Tide 3

 

 

Be sure to keep these out of sight from your kids, though – they look like they could be good enough to eat!

 

Tell me about something in your wardrobe that’s versatile and provides 3-in-1 style. By leaving a comment, you’ll be entered for the chance to win a Visa gift card for $100. Pop In. Stand Out.
