Revisiting this blog post because it is one of my faves. I loved doing these pictures and playing with my son at the same time, I am quite the multitasker. But still the wind was fierce and my hair did well with that making an epic outfit post. I really can not wait for the weather to be cool enough to bring this joyous outfit back out in the mix. I love a skinny scarf! OK, honestly it is because of the boots. We all know that.
Monday’s we love to hate them. Wishing that it is Friday once again and the weekend is back upon us. Monday that bump in the road. But, it doesn’t have to be. Although it normally is. My Monday’s consist of appointments for a little one, and trying to get caught up on emails and such. Trying to plan meals for the week. Ahh to be an adult. Monday’s I like to dress for my mood. Sometimes colorful and sometimes simple, but never a “Plain Jane”. Today, I pulled the basic button down out of the closet again and instead of jewelry I went for a skinny scarf(which is actually a belt. shsshhh we wont tell anyone that.) and because it was windy as heck outside I brought out my black jacket adorned with my Lorien leaf. Got to represent right?
And I apologize for the weird spot on my shoe. It is some sand, my son took a tumble after his shoe flew off his little foot. It hit my leg and he went down. He is OK, he landed in the grass, I swear toddlers are made of rubber bands.
It was a nice day out a few times it was over cast and then sunny. It was cool out and very very windy. I’m talking paint with all the colors of the wind kind of windy.
I kind of went with a kind of disheveled kind of look, but also put together. Make sense? It did in my head.
If you have been following this ol bloggeroo for a while you will know I love a good monochrome outfit, and I love adding a pop of color somewhere. I added a pop of color with this great big MANGO bag. It carries everything I mean EVERYTHING. And half is not mine. Nope. #momlife
Bright bags like the one I have with me can just make the whole outfit look cohesive as if you spent all morning putting the outfit together when really all you did was find what was the cleanest, or what ever you grabbed first. Jeans CHECK, Shirt check, bra double check, bag big enough to carry all of my son’s crap, my crap, and anyone else’s crap.
Check, check, and CHECK!
He is wearing a cute outfit from Children’s place. We love that store!
I just love a great button down shirt that is no lie now the question is this. Untuck, half tuck, or tucked all the way? According to what I just read in Porter Magazine you should master the art of the half tuck. But, I like my shirts this way too. The half tuck is nice but I think for today’s outfit would defeat that “OH MY GOD IT’S MONDAY, KILL IT WITH FIRE!” look. Yeah?
I mean come on. Look at my hair, does that look like someone who has mastered the “half tuck”? I have but that is neither here nor there.
Told ya it was windy!
I mean this is some epic crazy hair. Like 80’s and early 90’s hair band hair.
Before you know it, it will be Friday again! Ahhh the weekend!
Steal the style!
