I decided it was warm enough for the shoes and a dress. I was dying to get out of my jeans. Fridays are nice, but I'm always beat. There just isn't anything left. The outfit was a true pick-me-up, because sometimes a girl just needs to feel pretty, no matter the shape or size or age. I don't know if this is superficial or what, but a good outfit will often boost my energy by 100%. Add to it that really, I had nowhere to go. I took it out for a stroll to... the market, the supermarket, to preschool and possibly this afternoon I will take it out to... the playground! If I'm not a glamour mom, I don't know who is. That's the thing though, especially if I have "nowhere" to go, wearing clothes as if I do makes me feel like a person. I like feeling like a person. Not just someone's person. Like my own person. And it doesn't hurt that my kids will notice. "I love your necklace, mama!" - Nikola says. Ivan usually comments on my shoes. He likes all my fancy shoes. He's got taste.
(If you're curious: dress and belt are Old Navy, cardigan is H&M, shoes are Born and the necklace is a gift from my husband)Posted at 08:07 AM on April 20, 2012
