sometimes i wonder if this blog
leads the readers to believe
that i look totally awesome
all the time?
i feel like that projects an unobtainable
and depressing result.
i want women to feel like they have a reason
to be stylish.
i've been thinking about what i want my readers to
feel when they read.
i want you to feel like you can
have personal style with out giving up
i want you to feel good in what you're wearing
when you leave your house.
i want you to want to put effort into 3 out of 5 outfits.
does that make sense?
i don't look cute everyday.
some days i want to wear
our local uniform.
and when i see other girls around
town wearing it...
i think they look cute.
you can't show your personal style everyday...well
maybe you can but i can't.
in my closet right now, i'm in possession of
of the current trends.
i chose to buy a pair of skinny maternity
jeans when i was in CA and they took up all
of my money.
(p.s. they were the most i've spent on jeans in my entire life $70)
as much as i want some moto boots
a military inspired jacket
a furry vest
and a new bag
it doesn't always play out.
anyway, i wanted to make sure you readers knew i was
real and not some girl from oregon
that looks super put together and tells you what
to wear and that i have all these unreasonable expectations.
all though it's because i'm pregnant...i wear the
same shirt two sometimes three times a week.
well, it's a cute shirt, i always get compliments on it
and honestly, it's expensive to buy a whole
wardrobe for fall when you're pregnant.
so i've bought a few things that i really (really) like
because i know that i'll be wearing them over and over.
does this make you feel better?
it makes me feel better that
you know the real me...i don't look like i stepped
out of a magazine
(all though my hair does now :)
i look like a mom that looks cute when she picks up
her kids at school
(if at no other time)
i'm a mom that wears jeans and boots
to run errands and not yoga pants.
i put in earrings, curl my eyelashes and put on mascara.
(and deodorant too).
i'm going to try and do a few more posts this week
my daughter has a 5 day weekend
and when my girls are home
i don't usually write.
as always, if you have any fashion questions leave
them in the comments!
