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.

no makeup? no problem...


boots: i think you all know by now. socks: Pocket's. jeans: kohl's. shirt: don't recall. cardigan: j.crew. hat: thrifted. watch: target.

Happy President's Day, guys. I'm all about America and our founding fathers and democracy and stuff...but to be honest, I've never really understood why we have this holiday...but to ALSO be honest, I've never really voiced that opinion because it's a free day for heaven's sake! Here's to you, George and Abe and all the rest. Thanks a mil. I slept in til 8:45 in your honor.

It snowed again last night. Not a ton, but enough to make me bust out the boots. Again. I kind of want to apologize--I really do have cute shoes in my 30x30, but the reality is they're just not practical for wearing in 10 inches of snow. Unless I'm part of the Matrix or Truman Show, in which my reality isn't real. But here's the deal: if that's the case, then let the Powers That Be send down a warm, caribbean-esque synthetic snow. Palm trees, too. And I wouldn't mind an oceanic beach in my backyard while they're at it. Hello. That's my kind of "snow."

Regardless, today's a great day. On the itinerary is sledding and a long list of nothingness. Which, frankly, is a glorious way to spend a holiday. Playing kinect (LOVE!), taking naps, playing legos and dolls, watching the snow fall from trees out the window, popping pocorn, playing games, listening to pint-sized arguments...this is the life. What's your vote: sometimes good to have a staycation, or do you need to get out? Either way...

...happy Monday!

Yeah, your day sounded amazing. I went to work. Boo!

Beyond that, at least if you have to wear boots every day of the challenge, they're really, really great boots! Love the hat, too :)

True story.

Merci!

I looooove the red socks peeking out over the boots! Such a fun little pop of color. I haven't tried that this season and now that we're in the 80's, I think I've lost my chance. Hopefully that'll still be cute next year. :)

Come take a look inside A Working Mom's Closet
