A Day in the Life Too... a blog about modest style

A 30-something mom's blog about modest style, DIY stuff, and limiting dessert. Just kidding. We eat dessert first around here.

an apple a day...

 Shoes: American Eagle Outfitters. Jeans: bullhead brand. Shirts: thrifted. Belt: F21. Necklace: Don't recall. Earrings: Black pearl oyster from Hawaii.

Don't get me wrong, guys. I'm in a great mood today. Sure, I've got a little head congestion and I think I pulled something in my back from shoveling some majorly heavy, wet snow yesterday. But that's really nothing for a girl my age.

But when your normally sassy 2-year-old wakes up as sick as a...button?... [Editor's note: Somehow I think the mixed analogy is losing something in translation.] ...or sick as a whatever-object-universally-connotes-extreme-sickness, it plops a dark, goopy cloud right on top of your silver lining. Function today, people. I've got a kid to love.

Jumping-off point: black skinnies. Because I've been busting out the skirts for a long time now, and Mother Nature dumped some serious snow on us last night (probably trying to cover up the evidence of our puppy's existence in the backyard...thank yooou, Big Momma N.) [Editor's note: 'Big Momma N'? Where did THAT come from?! Gross.], and I just wanted to be warm. I really like experimenting with mixing patterns lately, so I paired a kind-of-striped button-up with a kind-of-flowery shirt. The red and taupe elements go well together, and, personally, I think the combo is Unexpected and Maybe Awesome.

Wide black braided belt, metallic flats, cuff the jeans because sometimes I just feel like a cuffed jean, throw on a necklace that probably wasn't needed but I felt a little blah without it, and viola. Oh, and this is what my hair looks like straight-out-of-the-shower. Frizzalicious. Because my sick 2-year-old woke up right then and needed me, and, frankly, she'll win that battle every time. Easy. 

But, after all that, I was still a little chilly (cranked up the heater, but house takes a while to warm up), so I pulled on some of Pocket's socks and the biggest, comfiest, thickest sweater I own. And I'm off to rock-a-bye-baby.

Happy Thursday.

here's something extra gross. i was making a snowman with my kids and kept accidentally rolling the balls in some surprises. and just kept rolling. i'm sure it functions like glue.
i like how your jeans are slightly faded, almost but not completely. a faded tease.
