{threads} my "mom" style :: black & white

I know what you are thinking... "White pants!?"
I have been obsessing over this trend for a while now. But with hesitation for the obvious reasons.
The moment you buy these crisp white beauties, the inevitable is bound to happen at some point.
But why live in fear...of ketchup, wine, sticky-dirty baby hands, and well, Aunty Flow!
I have to say, I am smitten!
I don't know why I waited so long.
I felt like after I had my first baby, I completely lost who I was and my sense of style.
 Gave up those fun tops and slim pants for slouchy clothes to hide behind, thinking maybe I could just go unseen. While I still love my slouchy clothes to lounge around the house, dressing like the old me feels good again. And I feel like my "new style" has become a more mature version of my "old style", still the same just a little more refined!

Date Night
Hubby took me on a much needed date, with 2 kids it doesn't happen that often.
FM McClintock's Steak House || Sea Bass & Margarita
Cold Stones Ice Cream || Cookie Doughn't You Want Some
Loads of Laughs and ridiculous dancing on the ride home (mostly from me; Locked Out of Heaven)

Upside:
Hubby & I got some great quality time together & didn't make one spill on my beloved white jeans

Downside:
I did get a blister on my heel...Will be investing in some of those heel-pad inserts & a gnarly headache-hangover the next day (And that was from only ONE Margarita, definitely can't hang).

  7. You look fantastic ... I think white should be worn all year 'round (just not near the kids)! And I’m going to be honest here: you’re my new hero. I SO wish I could wear shoes as beautiful as those and still walk. I just can’t pull it off.


    I bow down to you. :)
