You’re a busy real life mom. I am too. I share with you relatable outfits and wearable, stylish fashion so you can feel put together while you’re wiping noses and tables and feeling wiped out.
Sunglasses: Warby Parker
Wild and Free Mama Shirt (similar)
Necklace: National Institute of Art (similar), Noonday
Pants: Sam’s Club
Shoes: Walmart ($5!!)
This is the perfect outfit in which to keep and feed 8 children, go to town at Goodwill, quickly alter a dress you bought, take the Middlets bowling and out to Steak and Shake and genuinely enjoy your offspring.
Faux Leather Moto Jacket: Goodwill
Necklace: Amazon (similar)
Pants: No Nonsense (pockets! Not see through! Cheap!) from Amazon
This is the perfect outfit on which to spill coffee within eight minutes of donning it, in which to have an enlightening therapy session, and to take off and forget to wash for a week.
Precision Necklace: Noonday Collection
This is the perfect outfit to wear for the last last day of Classical Conversations for the Year End Celebration and to take off as soon as you get your son to take this picture and sleep for days, and after which, experience total mental shutdown.
Scarf: Target (I sewed it to make it infinity)
Sandals: FitFlops purchased at Zulily but Amazon has them. These are the most comfortable flip flops you will ever own. I’ve even worn them “hiking”!
This is the perfect outfit which to wear for basically two days after you put it on yesterday aternoon. It’s good for doing a lot of communicating, grocery shopping, clothes sorting and donating and labeling, library going, lesson chaueffuering, and momming.
Shoes: Gold Skechers purchased at Ross
This is the perfect outfit in which to have a couple of extra kids on board and take everyone roller skating, under strict instructions to not tell me they’re hungry or ask me for any food for the hour and a half you’re there and have your five year old say, “I’m not telling you I’m hungry, I’m just letting you know that if you wanted to buy me a snack, I’m okay with that.” and host an informational meeting for Classical Conversations even though you weren’t really planning on it because no one RSVP’d so you had gone to Dollar Tree instead and try to show yourself grace. Lots and lots of grace because even when you make mistakes, it’s really, truly part of the human experience and it’s really, truly acceptable and expected to make mistakes.
Velvet leggings: Ross
Gingham Converse: Ross
This is the perfect outfit in which to get up early and spend a delightful day in community with other Classical Conversations directors, and learning lots of wonderful ideas.
Kimono: Goodwill dress I DIY’ed
Necklace: Etsy Five Arrows Gifts
Leggings: Sam’s Club
Silver Sandals: Goodwill but you can get them here!
This is the perfect outfit in which to celebrate 10 years of your church’s existence, connect with some friends briefly, eat fried chicken, laugh hysterically at your daughter’s hilarious play, get chastised by the grumpy old woman siting behind you for your awful cackling, get over it because most people love your laugh, and you’re okay with it, and drive to Des Moines with your oldest to daughter to go to her history day competition.
