Lately, I've been feeling really dissatisfied with my wardrobe. Being a stay at home mom, I don't really have any reason for getting dressed up, or even getting much beyond presentable. The majority of my days revolve around chasing down my increasingly mobile one year old, doing laundry, vacuuming, grocery shopping, making dinner, supervising homework, going for walks outside and changing countless diapers. The likelihood that I will end up dirty or covered in food from Isabelle is high.
It's glamorous. Living the dream.
So most days, you'll find me in ratty shorts and a t-shirt. Leggings and a tee. Every now and then, I'll spice things up and choose jean shorts and a fitted shirt.
But lately, I just feel sloppy. I still have no occasion for which I need to look nicer, and my daily activities with a chance of dirtiness are still the same.
I want to look nicer...but for what? To crawl around on the floor picking up toys? Kneeling at the side of the bathtub bathing baby? Seems unnecessary. But I see all these stylish women, and quite honestly, I'm envious.
Anyway, we took pictures for Isabelle's first birthday a few weeks ago, and took a few new family photos as well. It was a nice excuse to look a little more put together. Nothing fancy. Just better than the typical "I'm a stay at home mom" outfit.
My skirt and tank are from Loft. I got them this summer, my very first purchase from Loft. My jacket is old school bebe that I've had for years. It's a classic.
Ideally, I'd love to be a little dressier and more feminine like this everyday...but it just doesn't seem very practical.
What's your typical outfit on any given day?
