So i’m not really a fashion blogger, but lately I’ve been aspiring to show off a bit more of my “style” in my pitch to be more of a lifestyle blogger.
It’s going to take some time because well…working mom…with not a lot of time (or energy?) to model beautiful outfit posts and then post them. Working mom blogger problems. Thats a bigger issue because working moms who blog regularly? I don’t know how they do it. I mean…I wrote half of this post while catching up on The Voice after a toddler dinner time meltdown, waiting for hubs to get home. Gifts to wrap, floors to vacuum, bathrooms to clean, trash to take out and I’m blogging but feel like I shouldn’t be.
Yesterday (hi scheduled post. what of it.) I took a couple hours off in the morning to hit up my semi-annual dentist appointment. Before my mid morning appointment, I hit up Pure Barre before my dentist appointment, and then headed into the office. Thankfully, I work in a casual work environment and didn’t have any client meetings, so I opted for the “leggings as pants” look. Don’t judge me.
Either way, it was comfortable and had….a touch of class. Maybe. I don’t know statement necklaces and JCrew sweaters class anything up right? And those boots? I picked them up last weekend in Columbia and I love love LOVE them. Comfortable, fashionable and versatile. Love them.
The key? Dry shampoo, deodorant, and make up before I left Pure Barre – although thinking about it as I type I don’t remember if I actually put make up on. Maybe mascara? Maybeee??
My trick – because i pull similar looks off often on days without meetings – nice shoes. Nice sweater. Layering tanks. I’ve also pulled this look off with chambray shirts, flannel shirts…
I’ll try to get some pictures this weekend to do the whole outfit modeling thing. (Read: I’m super insecure with my body right meow and don’t want to take pictures because I haven’t been working out as much. Real Life with Working Moms without enough time)
