My goal at A Little Bit of Cheer is to help moms feel confident with themselves. On my blog, I showcase down to earth, approachable outfit ideas that are simple, classic and cost-effective. I share styling tips and tricks for busy women who want to look and feel confident and put-together. Since cooking is always a huge stressor, on Fridays I show easy ways to put dinner on the table.

Now on to the featured five from last week and link up:



Sarah shared a great reminder and encouraging post on the importance of having and keeping friendships and what this should look like for moms (and other women). I know I go through phases of wanting my friends near, but I know I also fall short in this area at times when I need my friends the most. You can gather encouragement from this post here.



I loved this sweet photo shoot posted from Anna who shares her 40 week bump and pregnancy update. I love her honest answers and prayers to God for patience as she awaits the arrival of her daughter. I can’t wait to see her beautiful bundle. See the photos here.

DIYtassellnecklaceKaren linked up her recent project where she created her own DIY tassel beaded necklaces after being inspired by the trend. You can check out what she actually created and the tutorial here.




Michelle styled the exact pair of pineapple printed pom pom shorts that I almost ordered (and still might) so I loved gathering inspiration on how she styled these cuties. You can check out her look here.



Cynthia pulled off a lovely pattern mixing combo that I can’t get enough of. I love the stripes and floral combo and am personally recreating a similar look for tomorrows post and link up (so be sure to stop on by and link up your patternmixing outfits), thank you Cynthia.
