Daily Mom Style 10.03.12

This week’s been a bit of a wash. I admit to staying in workout clothes most days. I really need to get better about getting in the shower first thing in the morning because it’s too hard to walk away from the computer once I’ve sat down, and I end up plugging away till the kids get home at 3:00, and by then it seems like, what’s the point? So I slap on some mascara and call it a day. I know, gross. It’s pretty pitiful when you’re too busy to get a shower. I think it’s time to re-prioritize again!

At any rate, here’s what I’ve got for this week.

day 1

I wore this outfit to church on Sunday. I really wanted to wear my green jeans, so I looked at a couple of different options and finally settled on this embellished cream-colored tank and taupe cardi from Madewell. This bronze-colored cuff bracelet is one that I bought with the outfit to compliment the sequins on the top so I decided to wear these bronze-colored ballet flats to work with that whole scheme.

I ended up putting a necklace on before I walked out the door — this one from Lisa at Studio Jewel. Again, I thought the tone of the metal complimented the outfit.

day 2

I put this next outfit on for a meeting at the girls’ school and a lunchdate with a friend. This is one of those outfits that just came together because I spotted the skirt and wanted to wear it, and I felt like bare legs looked too summery so I tried it on with tights and boots. It was too warm out to wear a sweater, so I opted for this casual tee from Old Navy (affiliate link). Is it plum? Eggplant? Whatever it is, I like how it works with the gray. In fact, I was toying around with wearing this outfit in our family photos this weekend.

I have to say, though. I got home and I couldn’t WAIT to rip those tights off. I think tights are so incredibly uncomfortable. Which is why you will almost always find me in jeans in the wintertime. But every once in a while, I try to change it up. That is the Signature Dot Disc Necklace from Stella & Dot (affiliate link). I love how it fills a neckline when it’s doubled up.

day 3

This is the outfit I wore yesterday on my shopping trip to the Tanger Outlets (I’m an ambassador! YAY! Stay tuned for more info on that in my Fashion Friday post!) It’s a great halfway point to meet up with my college bestie. We have a way of picking the rainiest days to get together. It was POURING rain yesterday. But we slogged through and had fun anyway.

I love this wide-striped raglan top from Ella Moss. It was a total splurge, and therefore you will probably see it every week in Daily Mom Style. Plus, it is so very comfy and easy to wear. I wore my skinniest skinny jeans by Seven For All Mankind. I picked these up at Bloomingdales on sale after the holidays a few years ago, and they are still my go-to jeans in the wintertime because they are so easy to tuck into boots. They’re also nice and heavy for winter weather, but so stretchy and comfy that I feel like I’m wearing pajamas. The hand-stamped silver necklaces were both gifts in my speaker bag at the Blissdom Conference in 2010 — from Lisa Leonard Designs and The Vintage Pearl.

And that’s all I’ve got. Seriously, it’s not that I forgot to take photos. It’s just that I didn’t want to scare ya the other days. I really need to get into a better habit of getting myself ready first thing in the mornings. How about you? Do you struggle to put yourself together every day?? Please tell me that I’m not alone.
