I thought I’d change up the regular BTS round up posts and instead turn them into outfit posts, add our own spin. Since King will be attending Junior Kindergarten in September (and we of course couldn’t leave Harlow out), I am knee deep in real life BTS prep – so a real life BTS post round up made perfect sense! We had a ton of fun putting these posts together, and we got the chance to work with some fantastic sponsors – I really hope you love them!
I will be sharing two a day all week, four outfits in total for boys and girls.
one:hide that bedhead/ball cap – two:feels almost like pajamas/henley top – three:the cover up layer/ utility jacket – four:look all pulled together layer/jean jacket – five:comfy and stylish/jeans – six:carry those toys back home/backpack – seven:not ready for real shoes/sneakers
Back to taking the kids to school, or maybe back to school for you too? Either way, you’re gonna need a couple of go-to uniforms for those tired, not ready to get ready, no time to get ready mornings. Aka, everyday of my life with kids — but school mornings are a special kinda busy. A hat or some sort of mechanism is required to hide (no time to brush) bed head or post yoga hair and no hat seems more fitting for mornings like that then a baseball cap. And why all the layers with two jackets, do you ask? Well, the extra layer automatically gives the impression that you took extra time to put yourself together, even though you probably didn’t. Think of it as your school morning optical illusion. Okay the outfit makes sense for busy school mornings, but what about everything before that? Maybe some extra helpful morning tips will help….

Actually we got back last week, but it pretty much took me till now to soak it all in and get back into our normal everyday (and just in time for school to come to an end). Our vacation away, was more like a visi-cation since it was solely focused on visits and seeing all the people we miss on a daily basis. First Saskatoon, which was totally gorgeous (it doesn’t get enough press), relaxing and man did we ever have the best company/hosts. Then we drove (well my sister drove us) us to Edmonton, where we back-to-back visited family (on top of family) and the best of friends we had been missing for too long. It was a jam-packed trip, focused on people – which now that we are home has us so people sick this big city actually feels a little empty.
Our Toronto family that moved to Saskatoon (still our family), 5 kids later and we are truly one giant family. Many more photos to folllow…
Dramatic much? In all honesty I might not the very best person to help you answer this, because I myself am still trying to get to the end of my own answer. But I am working on it and somehow worked my way past the inital “WTF am I going to do with my life!?” stage with a healthy mix of panic and internal chaos — so wait, maybe I am?
This same question (but in a much less dramatic tone) was the single most asked question that was shot my way, the year leading up to having both Harlow and King in full-time school. So as much as I maybe wasn’t asking myself the life heavy question, others around me were — and that might be your case too?
This was a topic I’ve been asked to tackle a bunch of times, but serious things are seriously hard to do guys! I really wanted to tackle this concept and do a fun series, maybe interviewing parents who found themselves again or anew after the kids went off to school. Maybe I will still get to it — hey, maybe you want to (or know someone who should) be interviewed? Either way I thought, since this is my blog maybe I’d just go ahead (and finally) start with me and answer my very own questions — maybe offer some ease into your own internal transitional chaos along the way. And a walking photo? I didn’t have a deep thinking photo so walking seemed second in line, or something.
I talked a little bit about where I am right now and the very quick run down of the process that sorta got me here — and even that is still ever changing. I still don’t have everything together (but really, does anyone, ever!?) and I’m still working on my end goal, basically I’m still a work in progress but aren’t we all? I sat down and thought back about my own process (the panic, frustration) and the questions I hounded myself with (and others shot at me). So this post, is more or less the (very cleaned up) question process that brought me to “when the kids went off to school” — which is where I’m at now.
This post is for you if you have kids going off to school or if just feel you really need a change and generally if you are asking yourself WHAT AM I GOING TO DO WITH MY LIFE? (or maybe you’re shouting it, just like that?)….. READ MORE
