Sunshine, a kimono and…sandals!!! YAY!


So, I mixed two more challenges into today again.  Cheating?  I don’t think so… 🙂

Day 5: Change out your handbag, and Day 8; Break out an item you haven’t worn in at least six months.

I think my saving grace is that they were NOT the same thing!  But…it was sunny, so it was time to break out of the winter wear-woo hoo!!

To be honest.  I’ve never worn this kimono.  I’ve tried a few times, but it never seemed to work.  Today it did.  That said…I think I will save it for nights out, because I was constantly pulling it back over my shoulders as I was doing this and that.Blog Winter Kate Kimono HM Tank Genetic Denim ShoeMint Eila Sandal-1 Blog Winter Kate Kimono HM Tank Genetic Denim ShoeMint Eila Sandal-2And OMG, SANDALS!!!  Oh, how I’ve missed you!!  It was kind of nice not caring if my toes were painted for 4 months, but I will gladly paint them (for a while haha :)) Blog Winter Kate Kimono HM Tank Genetic Denim ShoeMint Eila Sandal-3Here’s the 2nd challenge.  Swap out your handbag.  Or…in a mom’s case- big a** bag!!  If you carry a traditional diaper bag or opt for a big bag that you dump everything in, we need a big bag.  Diapers, snacks, possible change of clothes, drinks, plus our stuff?!  I love this bag from Foley & Corinna!!  I may or may not have it in 3 colors :}  I originally splurged on it as a “briefcase” when I worked in the corporate world.  Then, it became my go to carry on.  Then…diaper bag!  LOVE IT!  Hence, me hunting various colors down on eBay, because I believe they are sold out?
