Mom Fashion | What I Wore This Week 05.10.11

Another rainy Wednesday.

I had a meeting and I wanted to look nice so I put on my dark-wash, straight-leg jeans. I’ve been wearing them rolled up, and I really like the look. It’s a great way to take jeans from winter to spring. I topped them with an embellished T-shirt (LOFT outlet) and my trusty gray hooded sweater (Banana Republic) and I threw on the orange flats for color. Then I added the long chain link necklace and silver hoop earrings for fun.

I spent most of Thursday in my sweats, but then I put on this outfit to go to a JCrew blogging event that night.

The sweater and tank set are from LOFT. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but I wasn’t happy with it. I had to keep pulling at the sweater so it wouldn’t settle in the wrong places, and I was generally uncomfortable the whole night. I have a feeling that sweater will end up at Goodwill.

On Friday I had a Mother’s Day Tea at my daughter’s preschool — my last preschool Mother’s Day Tea EVER. I came home and sat down and cried. No joke. I love and adore the preschool years. I can’t believe they are over.

You’ve seen this outfit before, but I post it because it also contains MY NEW EPIPHANIE BAG! I ordered this months ago and it was backordered. How appropriate that it arrived the week of Mother’s Day!? We don’t really do Mother’s Day gifts, so I’m considering this Happy Mother’s Day to ME!

In honor of Mother’s Day, I dug out this necklace. It was always a favorite because it has each of my children’s names on it, but I tend to wear my newer ones. I got out my silver polishing cloth and cleaned it up and wore it, and my kids were thrilled. Unfortunately, I can’t for the life of me remember who made it for me.

Sunday was Mother’s Day and we went to church and then entertained family for lunch.

I wanted to be casual and comfortable and yet I knew there would be photos so I wanted the color palette to be fresh and springy. I chose my white cropped skinny jeans (Gap) and paired them with a green top (Banana Republic) that I’ve had for years. I threw on a jean jacket because it was a bit chilly in the morning. (I’m loving this jacket — I picked it up at the CAbi outlet last week, and the cropped styling is so versatile and flattering.)

I wore my snakeskin espadrilles for fun, but once I got to church, I realized I had nursery duty. D’oh. I ended up going barefoot most of the morning. The coral bag added a nice contrasting color to the green, and then I finished off the outfit with my new Stella & Dot Delicate Drop earrings and Chelsea necklace.

I was too busy Monday to take a picture, and you really don’t want to see what I wore most of the day on Tuesday. But last night, I went to a CAbi party. You’ll have to wait till my order comes in to see all the cute clothes! This year’s spring line is the best yet. There were so many pieces I wanted, but I stayed in budget, well, okay, almost. It’s hard to be good when everything is so cute!
