mom style 2

From last week –  5 days of my actual outfits.


Monday – Old Navy plaid shirt, ON skinnies, Frye boots, anthropologie watch


Tuesday – ON skinnies, gap long sleeve tee, oversized cape/hooded sweater, BDG boots


Wednesday- Target sweater, ON floral button up, skinnies, jcrew macalister wedge boots (surprisingly comfy, did the library target, and the grocery store in these no problem)


Thursday – Gap sweater, Urban outfitter tee, ON black skinnies, thrifted motorcycle boots. not crazy about this one.

Friday and Saturday were kinda boring. It snowed.

and Sunday


ON skinny cords, ON tunic sweater, BDG ankle boots, gap infinity jersey scarf

You know, not bad. Maybe  I should try more accessories? Better than yoga pants at least. I think I’ve been reading too many blogs – kind of seeing too much as it were. I have too many images of well coifed, highly edited and styled models rattling around in my head to feel a ton of inspiration when I open my closet. So much of what I see on style blogs is really not appropriate for real life mom-wear, know what I mean? Lots of heels and Jcrew collection and chiffon – lovely and wonderful, but not always compatible with chasing a two year old and walking the dog – sort of like watching clips from fashion week that show people teetering around in heels through the snow – they just look silly to me. This blog does it right though – and I’m really looking forward to the destroyed denim I ordered last week too.

Happy Monday!

ps. My friend Kristin has amazing pictures of her trip to Morocco here.

  1. i love where the ON plaid shirt hits you…
    I have one plaid shirt I love, and I have never found another that hangs right…or keeps shape in the wash! I was looking in the wrong stores!!!!

    • I think its the weave of that shirt that makes it keep its shape – it’s kind of linen-y or almost like a flour sack dishtowel. All my flannel ones just look crappy after washing! Bonus – it was unbelievably cheap.
