Having fun with plaid…

Or…just having fun 🙂

Plaid is everywhere now.  It reminds me of the early 90’s when I was slightly obsessed with Eddie Vedder 🙂  Well, instead of just pulling out my old flannel shirts (I know I stored them away somewhere!), I thought I’d try and different twist on the trend…Blog Plaid Patterson Kincaid Joes Jeggings-1 Blog Plaid Patterson Kincaid Joes Jeggings-2 Blog Plaid Patterson Kincaid Joes Jeggings-3Maya wasn’t feeling the “self timer game” so much this day… 🙂 Blog Plaid Patterson Kincaid Joes Jeggings-4 Blog Plaid Patterson Kincaid Joes Jeggings-5 Blog Plaid Patterson Kincaid Joes Jeggings-6

Coated denim…day to night.

You know all those weekends where you play with your kids during the day and then get to go out with your husband at night?  Yeah…me either.  However, it does happen on occasion, and a lot of times it’s a short notice offer from my parents that we jump on.  Here’s an outfit that lets you run around during the day, then swap out the shoes for night.Blog J Brand Agnes Coated HM Chunky Sweater-1 Blog J Brand Agnes Coated HM Chunky Sweater-2These are so comfy, and I love the added bling of the glitter.  So not me, but fun!  I think Maya is rubbing off on me haha.

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 🙂
Shoes- Miss Sixty “Marlene” oxford (sold out, but you can still find them on eBay!)  Similar here.
Tank- C & C California (old, but can find similar here.)

On Maya…

Top- Old Navy (thrifted, but dying over this one!)
Jeans-Gap
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
