Mom Style | What I Wore This Week 05.16.12
Let me just remind you that this is May. Cause you’ll never believe it by looking at my outfits this week.
Last Wednesday I attended a Mom’s Night Out event hosted by Main Line Parent. The dress code was cocktail attire, so I pulled out my favorite dress. This is the first time I’ve work it without black tights. I was a little bit self conscious, but I got a ton of compliments so I guessed it works!
Because the dress is so busy, I usually go light on the jewelry. I wore silver chandelier earrings from Stella & Dot and doubled up on my bracelets for a chunkier look. Those shoes are old favorites by Boutique 9.
Thursday was mostly errands and working from home. Purple tank (old) with gray cardi (Gap Outlet) and straight-leg jeans (Sevens) with Silpada necklace and bracelet and silver flips from Banana.
On Friday, I got up at 5:30 and was at the gym by 6:45 for a training appointment. I figure any day I get up and work out before 7 am I deserve to wear workout gear all day. I was even wearing it when our neighbors stopped over for drinks after dinner. Clearly I have no shame.
This was Mother’s Day. You’ve seen it all before — ruffle trim tie-dye top and coral cardi from Banana, white cropped skinnies from Gap, necklace and earrings from Stella & Dot and the wedge sandals are Stuart Weitzmans (which I scored on a super duper sale at 6pm.com.) I love this outfit. You will be seeing a lot more of it.
And then the rains came.
It was a dreary day on Monday when we drove to NYC for a live recording of The Talk. I was in a rush when I left the house so I meant to grab a photo of my outfit when I was in NYC, but I never thought about it again. I basically wore a version of this outfit that I posted last week. Except I wore my darker skinny jeans and black pointy-toe flats.
And Tuesday’s picture could be alternately titled: Mama Needs Rain Boots. Yes, I wore my leather knee-high boots on May 15th. It was raining cats and dogs. What can I say, I didn’t want wet feet, and I had to take my daughter to swim lessons and run some errands. I also didn’t bother to wash or style my hair. Again with the cats and dogs. I figured, what’s the point?
If you’re wondering what’s up with the sunglasses, long about 2:00, it suddenly got sunny and warm. Fortunately I had my sunglasses in my purse. As soon as I got home, it was off with the boots and the sweater.
And that’s a wrap.
