The Fall Weekend Essentials

08 Oct 2012 Permalink

We love doing things as a family when the fall season approaches.  Feasts, pumpkin farms, and parades are all places that we look forward going to.  Unfortunately, it’s pretty tricky to look put together yet functional…meaning being able to chase the kids around!  I tend to repeat my favorites during these family times.  This scarf and these jeans are usually in heavy rotation over the weekends.  I don’t mind one bit!  When you’re trying to shuffle a 14 month and 3-year-old out the door, I’m happy to have something that easily answers the question, “What’s mommy going to wear?”

Oversized Button Down

One easy outfit that I’ve been repeating a lot has been an oversized button down with a pair of skinny jeans.  Worn with flats or a wedges, a light jacket or a scarf, this ensemble always works for me when I need to run out the door to the doctor’s office, grocery shopping, ballet class…

 This dress was such a great purchase.  You know the kind…found it while digging in the sale racks…only your size left.  Perhaps a ray of sun was shinning on you through the store window, and some angelic song started playing in the background… 

Anyway, this dress does a great job working by itself or being paired with others (like my current favorite color combo: blue and green.)  Hmm…playing well with others.  Sounds like a student every teacher would love to have in their class.  I should teach my other clothes to behave this way.

 I’m slowing working on clearing out the clothes that worked during pregnancy and those in between stages, but I’m having a hard time letting go of these baggy boyfriend’s and this too large denim shirt.  Until I’m ready to cut the cord, pairing them with clothes that are fitted gives them a few more wears.
