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.

cookies bring Inception to life...

Baby steps for three more days of doing those numbers... Will someone remind me next time that I'm just too old and creaky? Pretty please?
booties: steve madden. jeans: american eagle. polka dot top & blazer: thrifted (but...old navy & the limited). belt: forever21. flower pin: downeast outfitters. watch: target.

Sometimes my world moves verrrrry slooooowly. Like right now. I'm sitting here in the kitchen, listening to my puppy snore, my 2-year-old talk about how pretty she'll look at her wedding (??? and again I say ???), and my 4-year-old and her BFF giggling adorably over their newly created play-doh Ice Cream Flower Garden. It's like time has stopped for a few minutes, because I'm fully invested in the moment called Now.

Of course, one can always take that time-stand-still mindset to an uncomfortable extreme. Like I did, when I (again) thought I could pull off double braids. C'mon, though. A blazer totally cancels out the juvenility (yep, made that one up...I think...), and then I've still got on heels, so I figure I'm 1 point in the positive for dressing my age. Two points if you count the watch, which means I could've actually tied ribbons around the braids, too. Next time.

Speaking of Now, there are some leftover snickerdoodles sitting on the counter that won't be here Later. And if that kind of time-manipulation speak confuses you, I don't recommend watching Inception. Or riding in elevators. Just in case.

Happy Monday.

You are so adorable! I love the polka dots, the ruffles, the braids, everything! Those jeans fit you perfectly and the blazer with jeans is a fun combo. Super cute!

Ha, you always make me laugh!! Love the braids. If I had long hair, I'd absolutely wear them and join you in feeling like a kid for a second or two! =) Your outfit, as usual, rocks!

Laura said...

I like the braids! I think adding a bit of youthful exuberance to an outfit is never a bad thing!!

Julie said...

Just found your blog - what a treat! I love this outfit. Can't wait to get to Am Eagle and find those jeans. The red ruffle top is so cute! I'm a mom and get tires of yoga pants & hoodies every day. I'll watch your blog for inspiration!

I love everything about this outfit - the colours, textures and little details like the flower and the fact that you folded over the end of your belt. Fabulous!

Love the blouse, flower, blazer combo!!! And speaking of Inception - I'm one of those who didn't get it! I watched the whole thing with barely any idea what was going on :)

Christie said...

I must say, you are adorable. The polka dot blouse is fantastic!!!

Rachel said...

The braids makes it fun, so you, and the blazer makes it adult. That's a good blazer to own, it can go with everything. And I'll remind you next time, no more numbers.
