Today was a bit of a rough day. I had to take Maya to yet another urologist, and she’s gotten to the point now where the minute they call her name to go back she starts crying hysterically. Not without good reason considering they had to do another catheter-ugh. Needless to say, we were both in tears by the end of the visit…
Am I the only one that dresses in bright colors on crappy days, in the effort to cheer up? It got pretty sunny again yesterday…love it! Love this kid so much. You’d never even know she was sick or had a crummy start to her day. Spinning!
I posted one of the pics of Maya and me on my facebook page and a friend commented on my hair. I laughed, because it was my “I didn’t take a shower and was sick of my usual messy bun” look. Pretty easy to do. Just start twisting one side (fix with bobby pin). Twist other side, then gather both into a ponytail. Then wrap into a bun. Turns curly out of control bedhead into something a little put together 🙂
Boyfriend jeans have been a trend for a while now. I’ve tried a few pairs… They are incredibly comfortable, but I’m not a big fan of the longer rise that usually comes with them, and how they make my butt look (c’mon, that’s HUGE in jeans decisions :)). So…now I cheat and just buy up a couple of sizes on a normal pair. This is especially great when I go thrift shopping and find pairs not in my size=boyfriend jeans! That was the case with the pair I’m wearing here. This particular pair was hemmed already and about an inch too short. Was I deterred from scooping up a pair of Seven for All Mankind for less than $10? NO! Roll them, I say 😉
Ps-it’s been raining CONSTANTLY in Seattle, so…inside pick for this one. I’ll try and get more creative later.When you go the “boyfriend” style route, it’s best to pair it with a tighter fitting top. That way you don’t look too frumpy (NOBODY WANTS THAT!) This sweater isn’t too tight, but it’s more fitted. Then I dug this leather jacket out of the trenches. I have had this particular jacket for over 10 years! I’m such a hoarder… BUT, I find that things always come back around, and I’m SO glad I never got rid of it! And Maya’s take on the rolled too big jeans 🙂On me…
Sweater- Old Navy
Shoes- Converse (thrifted, but similar here)
Super Mom Tip-
Thrift store shop for premium denim (great deals are out there if you look!). Both Value Village and Goodwill have carts that you can put your child in while you shop (hands free shopping!) Plus, a lot of times you will find jeans already hemmed perfectly (if you have shorter legs). If you find a pair that are too short…roll them!
