This is totally a reader requested feature (and some of you may request me to stop), and I keep saying “naw, no one wants to see me, the kids’ are the stylish and cute ones!” (because it’s the truth). I thought I’d give it a try then if it doesn’t work I can at least say “naw, it just didn’t fit”. So every once in a while you might see a Mommy Style post pop in on our little corner of the internet.
I don’t have alot of opportunities to dress up, and honestly I’m a casual girl at heart anyways. Also since I have 2 kids, I don’t shop for myself as much as I would like (and I would like to ALOT) therefore I try to be creative and mix and match the things I own to create new outfits so I feel like I have new clothes. Basically my outfits are similar to the the kids’ since I restyle their stuff all the time too. I’m all about versatility and comfort while being stylish, so if the first two aren’t in the equation for an outfit, the outfit doesn’t make it out the door. Well okay I think that’s enough of a prologue.
Last weekend we went on a family walk and Chris snapped a few photos of me, we had intentions of taking photos for a family style post but no one was cooperating (mostly Dad). So this is what I wore, my mom uniform… Everything in this outfit is old, or shall I say loved. This jacket is one of my favorites, and I love when I get a chance to wear it. The jeans, I actually found in a bottom drawer with tags still on! My sis sent them as a gift during the summer months so I packed them away till the weather cooled was a happy day when I found them. My shoes I’ve had since Chris and I got married I bought them in NYC when we went for a visit after our nuptials, sadly I have no idea the brand (which stinks because they one of my all time favs).
- Band Jacket: Zara (2009)
- Tank: H&M (past summer) similar
- Green Jeans: DC (gifted) similar
- Shoes: (2007) similar
So there we go, this is a feature that may pop in now and again I promise not that often!
