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.

i'm a simple girl with simple needs...wearing simple stripes

 shoes & brooch: don't recall. jeans: old navy. tank: motherhood maternity (yes, you read that right...but don't go jumping to conclusions...you'll be sorely disappointed 9 months from now with no baby in sight). sweater & belt: forever21. watch: target.

You know your priorities are intact and that you are successfully passing those ideals onto the next generation when your 2-year-old spies a mini muffin tin and exclaims, "A cupcake machine!" 'Cept it actually comes out sounding more like: "a tuptate maseen!"

Good girl. Never mind practicing proper pronunciation...apparently what we're hardcore about is our bakery/pastry bakeware identification around here, complete with flash cards, pop quizzes, and "the strap" if they get one wrong. A little harsh, you say? I prefer to think of it as "tough love."

My 4-year-old is turning 5 tomorrow and is having a birthday party today. A girlified feminine flowery dainty pastel-laden thing. The excitement in the air is tangible as we await our first presents guests. Which is absolutely true as long as we replace the word "excitement" with "one billimeter away from going off the birthday-freak-out edge." And, no, I've never heard of a billimeter either, but I'm pretty sure it's veryveryvery small, and that's the analogy I'm looking for.

Know what else I'm looking for? The perfect banana split. Which is irrelevant but true nonetheless.

Happy Saturday.

Best banana splits are homemade. And now I want one. Damn.

That outfit is really cute! I thought the sweater looked the same as one I got at American Eagle a couple years ago, the stripes are thinner on top in the same way. Gotta love duped clothes at a cheaper price!

i LOVE all things striped, and love the black and white with the brooch, so cute! and what about your teeny tiny waist- are you kidding me? so jealous.
hope you have a fabulous 5 year old birthday party today!

I love me some stripes too - you wear them well! Have a great birthday party!

Melissa said...

Could you possibly get ANY cuter?! Somehow I don't think so.

I hope you have a great time with the party! Mmmm...cupcakes...

All of your jumping poses are better than any of mine.

Oh, the birthday party freak-out...I remember those days myself, so it seems beyond bizarre that I'm only a year or two away from having a kid who does the same thing. Crazy!

Love how simple and classic this look is, but how great it looks on you.

And this is completely unrelated, but it needs to be said...the height on that jump? Impressive!

This Life, Redefined…stop by and say hi!
