brick walls + watercolors

i am slightly obsessed with this look
or really any look that allows me the opportunity to wear these pumps!!
the combo of red and pink is just so eye catching, i cant get enough of them
in my previous life (pre-babies) i could get away with wearing beautiful silk blouses (literally everyday) and not have to worry about spit up or slobber or whatever other stickiness these boys might find
now-a-days i usually pick up washer friendly styles (ie: cotton!)
but, my wonderful mother-in-law gave me the day off and and a chance to revisit the "sXc" section of my closet, that is all too frequently neglected
if you're a stay-at-home mom, you will totally relate with me on this!!
i got myself all fancied up for an afternoon downtown, ALONE!!!!!
i can't tell you the last time i did that, probably never
and as delightful and QUIET as it was, I was more than eager to get home to my beautiful boys
