YEA!! I made it to the weekend! This has been a HARD week. I’m not going to lie. Hard and long. Thankfully Kole and I are feeling much better. Don’t underestimate the common cold! That’s all I have to say. Feels a little funny doing a Fashion Friday post since I spent half of the week in my sweats and a pony tail (darn! didn’t get a picture of that! ;) But I do have some outfits to share from the week or so before when I didn’t have a box of tissues in one hand and a runny nosed baby in the other.
This top was from Forever 21 and I seriously think I’ve had it forever — since I was 21. Wait! I still am 21! (I’m only amusing myself here, aren’t I.) It was so cheap (maybe 15 bucks?) and it has been one of my favorite summer tops.
I love the decal on the top…
and the way it cinches at the bottom. I hesitated to share this picture for a couple of reasons. First because I’m standing like a dork (I never know how to pose for these pictures!) AND because I am doing an absolute fashion DON’T. Capris aren’t good for someone as short as me and especially with shoes that have a strap at the ankle. Totally cuts you off and makes you look shorter/wider. BUT — it was hot and my capris are comfy and so are these wedges so I broke a cardinal rule and wore it anyway. Oh well. I lived and nobody cared. :) (Capris are Joes from Nordstrom if anyone wants to buy some and break a few rules with me.)
This picture is blurry and has nothing to do with anything, but isn’t my boy getting big!? We were dancing. We dance together often. Love that little man. I’m so happy he is feeling better!!
Another cheap top from Forever 21 that I’ve had for a while.
It looks better with jeans, but like I said, we were having a hot week so it was my True Religion shorts to the rescue…again.
These shoes are from Nordstrom Rack and are great slip on and go summer staples of mine.
Weekend date night outfit! Anthro belt again. If I do enough of these posts you’ll start seeing the same things over and over and over… Guess what was so cool? The night I wore this we went to dinner with some good friends to a Mexican restaurant. While we were eating this beautiful blond college-aged girl came over and was so excited to see me. It took me a minute to realize who she was and then it hit me. I taught her in 5th grade the year before I had Ellie! I could. have. died!!! My sweet, shy 5th grader was all grown up! Talk about feeling old. She couldn’t believe I had three kids and I couldn’t believe she was done with High School. We reminisced a bit about our time together and I got caught up on what my other cute students were up to. It was so fun seeing her again. But it made me feel really really old. Happy, but old. Old and happy. That’s me.
These Seven jeans are one of my favorite pairs. They were my first pair of designer jeans and I’ve had them for about 5 years now. I think Kenny bought them for me for Valentines Day if I remember right. They worked their magic and I felt better about my thighs/booty than I had in years. This pair started a jean obsession that I doubt will ever end. If Kenny only knew then what he knows now, he would have given me roses and a box of chocolates.
Full outfit. Ignore my dark roots. I’m getting my hair done this Saturday.
Dress I wore to church a couple of Sundays ago. I tend to stick to solid colors and don’t buy patterns much so whenever I wear this dress I feel proud of myself for breaking out of my solid color rut.
And my girls on their way to church. I adore them in these polka dot dresses.
Wore it to dinner a different Sat. night with some other good friends.
Same favorite sevens and wedges.
I like Kenny in this yellow shirt and begged him to pose with me in the bathroom mirror for Fashion Friday. He gave me a lovely look, said absolutely not and took off downstairs. But he did agree to let our babysitter snap a pic of us before we headed out the door. I don’t care for the way I look so posed in this picture (exactly what was I doing with my hand on his stomach?) but I do like that yellow shirt. And that’s what matters, right? All for the sake of fashion.
Have a great weekend everyone!
