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!

Vintage Hats + Destroyed Boyfriend Jeans + Booties…sure they go together ;)

 ESPECIALLY when you haven’t taken a shower!!  haha.  I know some people feel more comfortable putting on lipstick or some other make up to make them feel put together.  I say do what you gotta do!!  I’m not much of a make up person (I wish I was sometimes!!), but I will absolutely throw on an outfit to make me feel better when I’m basically the walking dead… 😉Blog Vintage Felt Hat Free People Sweater One Teaspoon Tiger Awesome Baggies Sam Edelman Booties-1 Blog Vintage Felt Hat Free People Sweater One Teaspoon Tiger Awesome Baggies Sam Edelman Booties-2 Oh, hi neighbor walking your dog!!  Don’t mind me and my tripod… ;}Blog Vintage Felt Hat Free People Sweater One Teaspoon Tiger Awesome Baggies Sam Edelman Booties-3 Blog Vintage Felt Hat Free People Sweater One Teaspoon Tiger Awesome Baggies Sam Edelman Booties-4

So, I took these pictures really quick before I went to go pick Maya up from school.  I had hopes that maybe we could take more after school, but it started pouring in the 10 minutes after I took these and needed to go walk to pick her up!  I attempted to take pictures of her before school, because it was “favorite color day”  She picked out her outfit, as she does now every day (insert sobs from me, because it’s literally the same 5 dresses on rotation!!).  Her choice was SO cute that I really wanted to capture it!!  She was having NONE OF IT!  Everyone always comments on how I get great  pictures of her, but the trick is…she doesn’t know I’m taking pictures of her!  She just thinks we are playing.
SO…when I really want a picture of her, she’s like “NO PICTURES!!!”
UGH.
Favorite color…as of late.  RED!  Oh, and that’s Roxy.  She comes with us EVERYWHERE
That look?  I mean…kind of want to die laughing.  I wasn’t at the time.
