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.

T minus 26 minutes

 shoes: converse brand. jeans: kohl's. shirt: gift/vintage. blazer: thrifted. watch: target. necklace: don't recall.

Guess who did NOT sleep well last night? (Please tell me you guessed I'm talking about myself, because if you didn't and you're now racking your brain as to who among your acquaintance didn't sleep well last night and how in the world would I know them well enough to blog about them, then we're going to have to start from the scratchiest of scratch, and I'm too tired to do that...because it's ME! I'M the one who didn't sleep well last night. Thankyouverymuch.)

I have no idea why, either, but the fact remains: I, who normally sleep so still it makes a sleeping log look like a Riverdancer, tossed and turned and turned and tossed all through the night. (There's a point to this sob story...I'll get there.)

[Editor's note: Note the above reference to Irish dancing? Since tomorrow St. Patty's? Heads up. Get yo' green on.] [Assistant Editor's note: Forgive Editor's lame use of "yo'." I tried to talk her out of it, but she just glared at me and muttered something that sounded like "fo' shizzle"...so I let it be.]

Ahem. So, long story short (hah!), I totally slept through my normal wakeup time this morning. I had exactly 26 minutes to get myself and the three kidlets up, dressed, breakfasted, and ready for school/the day. So I whirlwinded by my closet on my way to the girls' room, and this is what the centrifugal forces threw onto my body. I'm not naked, so it'll do.

But...isn't the embroidery on this shirt pretty? I like how it balances out the somewhat masculinity of the blazer. And how the Cons keep things lighthearted (a little Unexpected and Maybe Awesome here). Plus, they're easy to kick off when I take a mid-morning nap. Boom-shahka.

Happy Wednesday!

Want this look? Sleep in, roll out of bed, then shop below:

no, no, no, no, no - Patty is a girls name. It's St Patricks Day or Paddys Day at a stretch, not Pattys Day.

I think the ribbon in your hair is really cute though.

Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting today. You, too, look wonderful! We moms have to stick together in style AND in health!

Tiffany said...

You look adorable! I'd never know that was a quickly thrown together outfit. My last minute outfits are never this cute!

Earth to Brittney - Only Carson goes to school, so only HE has to be good looking by 26 minutes after wake up. I drop Liv off at school braless, hair a'craze & slippers every single day, including tomorrow St. Patty's day (I choose to believe that you spelled it right.)

Liz said...

WOW! I would say that outfit is a good one with a normal amount of time for just one person to get ready, but to think that you threw it on so quickly AND got your kids ready - AH-MAY-ZING!!! I can only hope that when it's my turn to be a mommy (after I fall in love and get married of course), that I can keep up my style like you have! You're inspirational! I just love your outfits, writing style, pretty much everything about your blog!

I think you look pretty great for 26 minutes (plus kids). Mmmmm. . . a nap. Now I'm trying to figure out how to finagle myself one of those this afternoon.

Well sleep or no sleep, I like it. And I'm dying by the way, over the log/Riverdancer comment. Way too funny.

Rebecca said...

Sorry you didn't sleep well. I can't imagine how moms do it, since I have enough trouble getting myself out of the house in the morning.

You look adorable! I love the rolled up jeans with the converse sneakers. I love your hair with the twist and ribbon too.

mk said...

i haven't been sleeping well the last couple nights either. boo. but i do like the embroidery, it's lovely!!


Claire said...

love it! your pictures are so much fun!!! isn't it amazing how a blazer can just do up an outfit? like how you paired it with your converse :)


Colleen said...

nice job getting ready so quickly.
I see a new way that you did your photo collage and I like it.

Your jump definitely turned out better than all that I have done.

Tara said...

Your 26 minute outfit totally kicks my 26 minute outfit's butt. I mean, I'm not saying my 26 minute outfit would consist of running pants and a t-shirt, but I'm also not not saying that :)

This Life, Redefined…stop by and say hi!
