Photo a Day May: Unusual – 25.

Unusual.
Its a good word in this house.  Or it can be anyway.
This photo may be a little unusual looking but whats going on in it really isn’t. We are basking in the end of the day excitement and need to be free and run around. That happens daily so really its not that unusual. Our faces however may appear unusual but they are full of awesome love weekend vibes. And the green pants may be a tad unusual but mostly they are comfy and so fun. So theres that.

Photo a Day May: Something new – 24.

I am obsessed with Winners.
I found the skirt I have been searching for there, last night.
I am in heaven. My boy has a ton of clothes and this mama was just not up to par with that.  Was.
I am now.  Woop. Green pants, check. 
Summer, here we come.

Photo a Day May: Something you wore today – 3.

Today The deep depths of my soul informed me that I would be wearing a black dress with a slender white belt, a pair of red wedge heels that I wore on our wedding day, one of the most beautiful days of my life, and a red coat that I have hesitantly held onto for nearly five years.  The only thing missing was red lips, oh HOW could I forget those?  Rushed mornings will do that to a person.  And so, how fitting is such an outfit for today’s photo challenge. Except, it is perhaps more fitting when the coat is stripped off (might I add the lining of the coats is a totally fun white with small black hearts all
over it) and the shoes are beside me, because they have tortured my poor pinky toes. Torturous, nearly, but oh no, just something I wore today.

I’m a mom.

Remember last post how I said skinny jeans are out?  Well, I didn’t really wanna say, but the reason skinny jeans are going to no longer be a staple in my closet is due to these babies:

Not trendy.

I wouldn’t say my clothes are super ugly or anything, but I am totally out of the what is nice what is trendy what are the hot looks loop.  I feel like I haven’t bought myself new clothes in a very long time, and to sum it up, I kinda feel a bit like a slob.  I also feel like it is finally time to ditch the skinny jeans and find something a bit more flattering.  Oui?

Ok wait, wait wait waaaait.  Before I go any further, can I preface this post with a Hold Up, this may be kind of materialistic (again) and righteous and greedy and so extremely self-absorbed (most blogs are?) and judgey-based?  Okay there I did anyway.  Disclaimer is out there, moving along now.

When I go out in public, I don’t want to look like a slob.  I don’t want to look like one of those I became a parent and now I don’t take care of myself folk.  And we all have seen some of those, and I’m sure they are great amazing super nice people and all but… I like to feel good about myself and I like to look nice and those two for me, go hand in hand.  And lately, well that feeling ain’t always right there for me.  It’s spring, and with weather changes and scenic changes comes me wanting to change my whole look.  I want something drastic.  I want to get rid of all of my clothes and start from scratch, although financially that is not going to happen right now.  I want different hair (thankfully a haircut today will half solve that) and I am sick of having black hair except I am a little tiny bit attached to my black hair.  I’ve always known that hair dye is bad news in terms of chemicals, cancer, toxins and what have you, but after having a clear visual of it on this website, I am paranoid and scared to dye my hair again and am thinking of trying out the henna hair dye from Lush. Or else just going au naturel, though that totally results in super ugly hair for awhile, which will not help in the feeling un-slobbish department.  Though it is summer and I can rock a hat oh yes I can.  And I am on maternity leave so I don’t have to be TOTALLY presentable all the time, really.

Oh yes, and the clothes issue.  I need new clothes, need need need.  I barely have any summer stuff and a girl needs summer stuff, whatever that stuff may consist of.  Again, I have no idea what I should be wearing, what are the hot looks, what are the amazing looks that will flatter my body.  Can someone help me and be my personal dresser and style adviser, please and thank you?

My son totally dresses way better than I do.  I can dress boys but I can’t dress myself?  That is downright pathetic.

What are your favourite looks for spring and summer?

I don’t really have a problem with shoes in the summer, thank god.  I sport my Birkenstocks all summer long, day in and day out.  I live in them and couldn’t be happier.  I think they are a timeless piece in my wardrobe and I will continue to buy them until the day I die.  Occasionally I will toss on a pair of flats, but the comfort factor of some flats just isn’t there.   Though I will say flats are a necessity in my wardrobe, especially for spring and fall.  Summer is time to air out the feet and the toesies (oh god I have clearly been spending most of my days speaking to an infant).

I read somewhere that the capris trend this summer is more like a ‘flood pants’ trend and capris are supposed to be worn longer to be more trendy.  Might as well jeans then, no?  I don’t want to say I am only all about trends, because as the topic suggests, I am not really a ‘trendy’ person.  I sort of just do my own thing.  I like to have some trends but then throw my own ideas into the mix, so I guess I just need a few staple items that will work well for me.

And I’m rambling.  And I suppose this is a good time to say goodbye.  That and I can hear my my precious little boy waking up.  Can’t wait to go and be greeted by those cute little nap-warmed flush cheeks.  Such love.
