weekends like this

Open Back Sweaters
I hate Monday for the fact that we are all running in different directions again, and of course will not all be back on the same page till the next weekend. But, I love Mondays because that means I get back into my mom groove. I usually lose that groove over the weekend. The one where I run around and pick up after people all day long, and clean every dish and pot after use so that I can walk into a clean kitchen in the morning. No no, on the weekends I say to hell with all that and just let the tornado of small beings run their course until I almost need to declare a state of domestic emergency.

Open Back Sweaters
sweater: old navy (sold out! check in-store) // jeans // sneakers // bag: zara 

This outfit was worn last weekend, this weekend was much too cold for a single layer. And by cold I mean a high of 50. Who am I? How quickly you acclimate to a new climate. Alaska friends you can gladly roll your eyes! 

But this weekend I had every intention of pulling out my big camera and taking pictures of the kids running around, our favorite coffee shop downtown, and whatever else I could snap......but camera batteries don't charge themselves is what I learned. If you follow me on snapchat (kelsey_pardonmf) you saw a good portion of it.

Despite the wind chill we headed to the playground to work off some energy. Chris and I always feel slightly out of place at the park because we play on the playground more than the kids. It's one thing to run around and play with your own kids, but when other kids want to join in and ask to "sit on your lap" to go down the slide, you must reassess the situation. And run.

We ended Saturday night with a little dance party in the living room. Also, I think we watched the movie Trolls no less than 10 times!! Have you seen it? I was expecting it to be super cheesy, but it was so cute! The music selection was great, and we were all on our feet dancing. We bought it on Apple TV, and there is a "play mode" which is like a little karaoke in your living room. Definitely worth seeing Chris do the d-a-n-c-e 1-2-3-4-5! 

And in honor of Justin Timberlake in Trolls, I will dedicate this post to him and bringing sexy back with this sweater. Get it....open back sweater....sexy back..... 

Okay. Goodbye. 

Since this exact sweater was sold out online, I found a ton of super cute open back sweaters:


  1. Haha I know what you mean about different climates - anytime it hits 50 here now I get way too excited - nothing like it used to be when I lived in Florida and would have practically been frozen in 50 degree temps! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. This is such a great look! I love the back of that top! LOL I love the "reassess the situation. And run" comment. So true! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  3. Haha Kyle and i always play on the playgrounds too! We have a hard time just sitting still. Our niece and nephew love that we do that and we can't wait to do it with E when she is older.

    1. Oh, I cannot just sit there. I would probably fall asleep...which clearly would be a bad parenting move, plus it is so fun to be on the swings with your kids!

  4. I LOL'd at state of domestic emergency!

  5. I loved Trolls! David hated it but he's a jerk. The music was awesome. I find it hilarious you two play on playgrounds. I always feel like with strange kids the little interact with them the better. Some moms be cray. I should know I'm one of them.

  6. Haha awesome! I love dance parties with my kiddos. And love your sweater!


  7. Such an adorable casual look! Love the fun back of that sweater!
