Something Old/Something New

21 Apr 2012 Permalink

I’ve had these jeans for a disgusting long time.  I’m pretty sure I picked them up while I was in high school…that would make ‘em over 10 years old.  Why hang on to these for so long?  They’re my benchmark jeans.  I slip them on every so often to make sure I’ve been eating (somewhat) healthy and staying active (uhhh…chasing after kids counts as excercise, right?)

And this crescent shaped high shine necklace is my newest addition.  I’ve been having fun lots of fun with it!  It works great worn by itself, or as a layered look (more on that coming soon!)

Hope you’re having a great weekend!

Floral Button Down

01 Apr 2012 Permalink

I was never really a fan of button down shirts…but then I got pregnant and the clothing options became limited.  Now a days they are a staple in my wardrobe.  Solid colors, stripes, polka dots…even ones, like this, covered in a floral print that looks like upholstery fabric.  I like ‘em a smidge on the loose side and paired with a skinny pant…a perfect uniform for busy mamas!

Spring

24 Mar 2012 Permalink

70 degree temps in March aren’t the norm for us in the Chicago area, but seriously, who’s complaining!?  (btw…this tree doesn’t usually bloom until late April!)

I haven’t officially switched out my fall/winter wardrobe for the spring/summer one yet, but I do have a few dresses (like this one), that end up getting used year round.  Adding a button-down tied at the waist, and some sandals, makes it perfect for these gorgeous days!
