Playgrounds & Lollipops - A Mess On the Inside, Put Together On the Outside
June 11th &10th, 2010
On the 10th I wore this outfit all day to take my car to the shop (because I believe the guys at the shop treat you with more respect if you look presentable), to Fashion Island for lunch, and to have friends over for dinner for the Lakers Game. I also wore this outfit this morning to Taylor's Kindergarten orientation.
Skirt: Ann Taylor Loft (paid about $14.99 for it!)
Shirt: Forever 21
Jacket: From local boutique Tullemoss
Shoes: 9 West
Ring: My wedding band from our 10 year anniversary
When my neighbor Shelly saw me this morning she said, "wow you like like the put together mom" (or something to that effect). Aha! My plan is working then! While I may have looked very proper and put together on the outside, I am a mess on the inside about Taylor starting Kindergarten. Be warned, I will be one of those crazy moms on the first day of school bawling her eyes out and clutching for my baby as she walks through the threshold to start her life as a big kid. So be careful when you make insensitive comments about "those moms". I will be one of them. In fact I was one of them this morning during the orientation. I was literally a mess, crying ever 2 minutes the principal referenced how big of a step this is. Art kept nudging me saying "Get it together, snap out of it." That only made me cry more.
But hey, at least I looked somewhat cool and collected, right? Right?
This outfit has gotten me through 3 occasions this week by the way, including a baby shower. I love the skirt and the fact that it does not wrinkle. Hooray for maintenance free clothes!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone. We're off to the beach!
