Although I feel like it some days, motherhood
hasn't COMPLETELY taken over my life.
Aside from my Family Fun magazine subscription
I have managed to cling onto my InStyle subscription.
I love the day each month when I receive
it in the mail. I usually wait until that night
to read it, when I can draw a nice hot bath,
crack open a beer and read it in
PEACE AND QUIET
after the kids go to bed.
One of my guilty pleasures :)
My favorite feature of InStyle mag
are all the pages with outfit ideas.
I saw an outfit idea that I LOVED in
my most recent issue and was thrilled
that I had almost the exact same outfit on
hand in my own closet. The only difference
was the color of the jeans.....in the magazine
they showed green jeans. I thought it would look
just as cute with my bright blue jeans.....
and I was right.
Rockstar blue jeans- Old Navy
black peplum top-Worthington- JC Penney
belt- vintage Levi (have had forever)
leopard ballet flats- Target
earrings- JC Penney (gift)
Lucky bracelet- Macey's (gift)
I loved the bright, bold color with the leopard print.
I'm smack dab in that bizarre stage of
a woman's life when clothing options seem
either "too young" or "too old".
You know, I don't want to seem like I'm trying
to look 20 but I also don't want to look like I'm
dressing as a 50 year old. With this outfit
I felt it was a perfect combo of age appropriate
style, with just the right amount of edginess.
