A few wardrobe staples
A Dual Use Powder Foundation from Urban Decay
Does this photo stress you out? There’s a lot happening here. Sorry about that. I tried to take nicer photos of my outfit but I happen to have relocated my office to quite possibly the worst lit room in my home, and full body shots are rather challenging in it. Also, in the spirit of full disclosure, my post-baby body isn’t exactly what I would call “camera ready”. Should I be alarmed that my cat Grits “makes biscuits” on my belly because it’s soft and warm? Meh, perhaps. On the other hand, at least Luke has a nice, soft place to lay as I nurse him. Maybe I’ll hang onto my rolls for his sake. What baby would want to lay on rock hard abs in order to eat a meal? Not my baby. In fact, it would be cruel for me to lose this baby weight and provide too hard of a surface for him to eat on. Cruel I tell you! I should probably go get a Snapper or something to make sure I stay soft and comfortable in the belly region for my son.
I’m doing it for him, okay?
What was that? Oh you are seeing right through my embarrassment and excuses?
Let’s move on.
. . .
I’m in a season of casual, simple & minimal when it comes to style. And I’m totally good with that. Occasionally I miss getting dressed up a bit like I did when I worked behind the chair, but for the most part I like the easy-going comfort of casual clothes.
And I pretty much alternate the same 3 outfits over and over and over again.
These are on major repeat in my weekly wardrobe. And frankly, I think I’d wear anything pictures above in any stage of life, mom or not.
MMMmyeahhhh let’s just say I understand why Zella named these the “Live-In Leggings”. It’s all I’ve been living in lately. I really think they live up to the hype, especially having worn them now for about a month. They do NOT slide down, like some leggings can, and they look brand new even after a lot of washes.
I love the raw look of Herkimer diamond earrings (I have these and wear them often!). They can be super casual, but they are also unique!
And the New Balance kicks from J. Crew were something I gave a lot of thought to. I wasn’t sure if I would wear them much, but I’m grabbing them 3-4 times a week!
I’m looking forward to adding a few casual dresses into my wardrobe this spring too!
