clutch: lookbook store (love this one for under $30) // sunglasses: ray-ban // lipstick: mac in snob
When in outfit doubt....choose black and white. A classic pairing no matter what print it is in. I love this graphic brushstroke top, and gravitated towards it in the store! It is very structured, which is great for a postpartum body. Nothing to clingy, but just enough hug to keep it looking put together. I reached for this outfit when we, we being myself and Chris thought it was a good idea to go out for a belated birthday dinner with four kids in tow. Normally our dining outings consist of places that we have become regulars at. Where people know us and the fact that we will need a stack of a hundred napkins, tops on any and all drinks, and the kids meals to be brought out first. Those places are usually reserved for breakfast or lunch. But dinner? Dinner was a dumb idea! So even though I got dressed, threw on some makeup, and a heel, we ended up getting take out and calling it a happy birthday. Which it very much was....
Also wonderful is the white squares strategically placed on the shoulders of this shirt, hiding spit up. And black pants with children is always a great idea, especially if your child happens to be like Pierce and refuses to use a napkin, but finds comfort in wiping his hands on you. Mom life....the
messy best life!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, we are now in summer mode. Bring on the popsicles! (and napkins or hose)
