Even at 5 years old, the monotony all but killed my inner fashionista. I remember wearing bright colored
headbands and big bows that didn't match to spice up the knee-length plaid and boat shoes.
I cried and cried over those boat shoes my mom made me wear.
Dear 5 year old, Brittany... you were young and didn't know, but those boat shoes were
waaaaaaaay cooler than the light-up shoes every other girl and her brother were wearing!
I was a server at Applebees for 2.5 years back in the day. People thought I was 12 and I was stopped by
a new manager once because he thought I was carrying liquor to a table illegally. Y'all I wore a lot of
black-on-black in those days with a little button that said, "Hi Neighbor". And non-slip, restaurant shoes?
Don't even get me started. Statement earrings and bright colored camis were my saving grace in those days.
Now that I'm a mom, there are times that I wish we ALL just had uniforms.
Picking out an outfit that actually matches and is fashionable with a 3 year old chirping (whining!)
for his breakfast and a 21 month old glued to your leg because that said 3 year old keeps throwing a ball
at his head is worthy of a spread in Vogue. Maybe a small spread?
Summer is easy for me. Lots of fitted tanks and flow-y skirts. My skin can drink in sweet summer
and the get-up is perfect for gracefully refereeing the two boys that God has blessed me with.
TANK = H&M // SKIRT = Handmade in the good ole US of A // BRACELET: Forever 21 //
(brown) GODDESS SANDALS = Wet Seal
My littles are to be found running around in shorts and t-shirts at all times.
Nothing fancy, but they make it look cute!
Oh and hats. They love hats.
FAVORITE kid shorts and hats come from The Children's Place.
FAVORITE kid t-shirts come from Old Navy and Target.
