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.

2 wrongs don't make a right...but how about 14 wrongs? what then?


 shoes: steve madden. tights: forever21. skirt & shirt: gap. cardigan: j.crew. belt: thrifted (american eagle). scarf: gift (old navy).

 There's absolutely no method to this madness...and I'm afraid it shows. Yet, surprisingly enough, I couldn't feel more comfortable or presentable.

Which is a good thing, because I spent more than an hour at the school district office this morning for kindergarten registration...along with millions, nay - BILLIONS, of other people. I had no idea the entire state's population is swarming to my area and will be entering my child's kindergarten class, but I suppose it's true. I saw the number of people myself. And my eyes don't lie.

(Except when they read the caloric content on some delicious foods that I happen to want seconds of. Then they tend to omit a few numbers from lame categories like "calories" and "fat." Which is actually way more astute than I would expect ocular orbits to be. I should eat more carrots to reward them for their loyalty. Should.)

So. My daughter didn't get registered today, her very kindergarten (and, skipping a few minor developmental years, collegiate) existence is at risk of falling through the cracks. But don't you fret, because today's a lucky day for you all: Outtakes. Extra-awesome ones. Any by "awesome" I of course mean "please, readers, come back tomorrow...please...readers?...reader?...mom?..."


Happy Tuesday.

Want this look? Just throw on random stuff from your closet until you're dressed. Orrrr shop below. Either way.

So, you're kind of hilarious. And your style just says "happiness" to me. It's very fun and free! And the way you're acting out the numbers of the 30 for 30 challenge? Priceless!

Good ole kindergarden round up. I hope that she gets squared away with her class soon!

Good luck getting your daughter registered for kindergarten. The process sounds really stressful. In any case, you look cute in your colorful outfit!

It is Dr. Seuss day at my kids' school and I wish I had your outfit to wear when i go and read a book to my son's class. And I mean that in a positive way. You are such a fun person Brit, I love it!

I love all of the color! I branch out with colored tights sometimes but would love to work my way up to this sort of thing. And fun clothes make sucky days just a tiny bit better, don't you think?
