Joie Peasant Blouse 3 ways… Day 1

I love having items in my wardrobe that can cross over from day to night.  Casual to work.  This blouse from Joie, does that perfectly.

The first way I’m wearing it is just day casual.  I might not take Maya to the park in this, since it’s white/and a little expensive, but it’s great for errands or apts.  Paired with slip on oxfords and another pair of DL 1961 jeans, this outfit could not be more comfortable!Blog Joie Blouse DL 1961 Jeans Miss Sixty Oxfords-1 Blog Joie Blouse DL 1961 Jeans Miss Sixty Oxfords-2I like to put colored/patterned tanks under sheer tops for a little modesty, pop of color, or fun boost to a neutral outfit.

Top- Joie (on sale!!)
Jeans- DL 1961 Emma Legging  Don’t let the name fool you.  They are jeans, but with the usual 4 way stretch, they feel like leggings 🙂

Tank- C & C California (old, but can find similar here.)

On Maya…

Top- Old Navy (thrifted, but dying over this one!)
Shoes- Zulily They come up often, so save this search “Mariposa Slip on Shoe” ($6!!)
Super Mom Tip:
  I hate to iron, so whenever possible I spray items with a spray bottle (I add a few spritz of body spray in the bottle to make it smell good!).  I  either let the item hang dry or toss it in the dryer.  Voila-wrinkle free and smelling nice!  I always take a spray bottle when traveling too.
Tomorrow, I’ll show how I would wear this top as work casual. 🙂dit-elle-Lauren

White after Labor Day…of course!

I have a slight obsession with white jeans.  THAT is not exactly “mom friendly”, but we have stain remover, so I indulge my obsession every now and then and hope for the best.  It’s a good thing I have 4 or 5 (ok, maybe more) pairs…

This particular pair is DL 1961 Kate Slim Straight.  I talked about my love of DL 1961 jeans here.  Their 4 way stretch is SO comfortable!  I bought this particular pair over 2 years ago, when I was pregnant (I only wore stretchy non maternity jeans when I was preggers!)  They’re one size bigger than I normally wear now, but that just makes them kind of a skinny boyfriend fit 🙂blogDL1961 White Grey Tank Jean Shirt-1n

During these last days of summer/early fall the temperature changes pretty drastically over the course of the day.  Layering is key… blogDL1961 White Grey Tank Jean Shirt-6n BlogDL1961 White Grey Tank Jean Shirt-4 BlogDL1961 White Grey Tank Jean Shirt-5Am I the only mom that walks out of the house and 75% of the time realizes that I match my kid?  I like to buy clothes for Maya that I would wear, so I guess when I’m in the mood for something…it trickles down to her 🙂

Alternative to T-shirt and Jeans…

I’ll be honest.  My usual go to outfit is jeans and a t-shirt.  It’s easy.  It’s comfortable.  I don’t have to think 🙂  I love this outfit, because it’s as comfortable as a t-shirt, but it looks a little nicer!  I’m so not a floral person, but there’s something about this top that I loved when I saw it!

I’m also a sucker for fun details in my jeans.  Love the little zippers on these DL 1961 jeans.  All their jeans have 4 way stretch, which means they are insanely comfortable and don’t stretch out!! blogFloralTopMagentaConverse-4blogFloralTopMagentaConverse-3
