Layers + Nene Matching Leather Slip On Shoes!

 It’s been SO COLD lately!!  Like way TOO cold for pictures.  We got a break last Friday where it crept into the 40’s.  We literally had 15 minutes before we had to race to gymnastics, but we’d recently been given these amazing matching shoes, and I’ve been dying to take pics of them!!

Oh, and I’d washed and straightened my hair, so….not letting THAT go to waste haha! 🙂

This is actually a sweater vest that I wore under the denim jacket for a warming later, and some texture from the fringe.blog-3x1-denim-jacket-stylemint-fringe-j-brand-nene-joyce-slip-ons-1 blog-3x1-denim-jacket-stylemint-fringe-j-brand-nene-joyce-slip-ons-2 Gah…the way she’s looking up at me!!

Although, see what was really going on in the “Keeping It Real” section… 😉blog-3x1-denim-jacket-stylemint-fringe-j-brand-nene-joyce-slip-ons-3 How fun are these shoes??!  The leather is SO soft and gorgeous, and the foot bed is extra cushiony (I don’t think that’s a word, but you know what I mean!)blog-3x1-denim-jacket-stylemint-fringe-j-brand-nene-joyce-slip-ons-4 blog-3x1-denim-jacket-stylemint-fringe-j-brand-nene-joyce-slip-ons-5 blog-3x1-denim-jacket-stylemint-fringe-j-brand-nene-joyce-slip-ons-6 blog-3x1-denim-jacket-stylemint-fringe-j-brand-nene-joyce-slip-ons-7 blog-3x1-denim-jacket-stylemint-fringe-j-brand-nene-joyce-slip-ons-8 blog-3x1-denim-jacket-stylemint-fringe-j-brand-nene-joyce-slip-ons-9 blog-3x1-denim-jacket-stylemint-fringe-j-brand-nene-joyce-slip-ons-10 blog-zara-girls-puffer-sweet-luka-mo-aztec-dress-shoes-black-joyce-slip-ons-1 hahaha.blog-zara-girls-puffer-sweet-luka-mo-aztec-dress-shoes-black-joyce-slip-ons-2 blog-zara-girls-puffer-sweet-luka-mo-aztec-dress-shoes-black-joyce-slip-ons-3 blog-zara-girls-puffer-sweet-luka-mo-aztec-dress-shoes-black-joyce-slip-ons-4 She even cracks herself up!blog-zara-girls-puffer-sweet-luka-mo-aztec-dress-shoes-black-joyce-slip-ons-5

I was trying to get the focus down for a shot, and she just kept jumping off this rock.  Which…then gave me the idea for the jumping shot 🙂

Vintage Hats + Silk Tops + Destroyed Boyfriend Jeans + Ballet Flats (Conflicted Mom’s Uniform!)

 If there is one thing I’ve always loved in fashion, it’s the dichotomy of dressy vs uber casual.  In my college days, I loved thrifting vintage fur jackets and beaded cardigans and pairing them with beat up old jeans or army pants (yes, I’ve been thrifting for 20+ years!!).  And, let’s be honest.  A lot of us work from home or stay at home mom’s have leftover NICE clothing from our days before we were moms!  It’s just sad to see them sitting there in the closet!  So, mix them in to the daily wardrobe!  This also goes to all those working moms.  I know on the weekends you don’t even want to LOOK at your work clothes, but…look at them in a new way.  Your clothes can do double duty for you!

And now…20 years later, I’m still loving it.  There’s a part of me that never wants to go back to the corporate life that I lived, but…a part of me that misses dressing up every day.  SO…why as moms (or NOT!) can’t we mix our lives of dressing up, yet not???  Especially when you spend so much money on said clothing.

Mix and match!!!  Or more importantly, bring back a little bit of the life you had before with the one you have now. 🙂Blog Vintage Felt Hat Chelsea Flower Silk Top 7FAM Destroyed Jeans Pink Nene Emma Flats-1And a little snazzy belt never hurts! 🙂 Blog Vintage Felt Hat Chelsea Flower Silk Top 7FAM Destroyed Jeans Pink Nene Emma Flats-2Maya was seriously in rare form off to the side 🙂 Blog Vintage Felt Hat Chelsea Flower Silk Top 7FAM Destroyed Jeans Pink Nene Emma Flats-3So, clearly, it was time to bring her in!
