when only neutrals will do

Aug 16, 2017

Glorious middle of the week, day! This week has been a little coo coo for coco puffs. Monday I wanted to get the girls outside kind of early and have Avalon do some fun preschool things with chalk. They both had fun being able to occupy their own territories of the driveway. Once that all came to an end and as I was picking up the chalk, Odette decided to take herself inside and lock Avalon and I out. 

I looked like a complete psycho as I am trying to talk her into unlocking the door. All she was saying back was, "I no lock the door mama, you did". No no....

I frantically ran around checking windows and doors and realized that I do not know the keypad combo to the garage (I have since reset it). Caspian was inside freaking out because I was trying to essentially break in and he was like, wait a minute, aren't I supposed to lose my mind when I hear these kinds of noises? It was crazy. My phone was inside as well so there was no help there. Avalon was getting nervous as I was saying things like "I'll just break a window". But then.....I remembered that I had opened the living room window the other night and was just hoping that I forgot to lock it. After ripping the screen to find out, we were in luck! We crawled through and all was well. Except when Chris got home and was like, what the hell? Those mama bear instincts....
Then yesterday I lived in rookie mom land as I was unloading the dishwasher. The girls were playing in the playroom and I kept thinking....they are playing so nice, I don't hear any fighting, this is just wonderful. Dumb ass. 

I walk in and Odette in laying on top of the work bench covered in marker thanks to Dr. Selfish aka Avalon. No really, she calls herself doctor selfish and it is hilarious. Avalon looks at me and says "Odette is really sick mom, I don't think I can help her". Oh honey....you have done enough. 

Clearly Odette didn't mind one bit. I am sure she was just so excited to play with Avalon.

Moving on to this outfit and how incredibly mom friendly it is not....but I don't care. I love an all white outfit, no matter what I end up sitting in. This outfit for the most part is just so easy and causal, but keeping everything neutral makes me feel just a tad bit more put together. I would totally throw on a nude heel and call this a date night #ootn. 

You know...if those things happened in my life. 


  1. You are so funny Kelsey. Love this outfit so much and would wear it in a heartbeat. Ohh the joys of having young children and what they will do!

  2. Seems like these ladies are giving you a run for your money these days! God I would lose my mind if I got locked out!!! Oh the horror! I too would have torn through windows. Mama bear instinct forever!!

  3. Hahaha Dr. Selfish?! That's amazing!

  4. Ha, I am sorry to laugh at your rookie mom moment, but it is funny...and cute!
    Love this white look, the hat is adorable!

    xx, Elise

  5. I will appreciate a [happy ending] mom disaster story! This is a good one! I'm also picturing you climbing through that window wearing all white (which I assume you were t at the time) and the visual makes it even more entertaining. Cheers to mom disasters everywhere!
