for whatever reason, this post feels very intimate to me, like im letting you in on a little secret.
I don't know if its the indoor spot, the sun streaming in from the windows, or perhaps the main reason, NO SUNNIES!!! I actually have eyes guys, can you believe it?? on the real though, this look is me! not that everything else I post isn't me, its just mostly the very fab, somewhere to go version of me, but I rarely post the day to day, mom-on-the-go me. no fab fashion events to attend, no dinner dates with the hubs, just me and my boys against the world and this laid back style is my go to. so after a long morning of shooting, my makeup gone, and my hair a disheveled mess, I slipped into this look, fueled up on caffeine and headed out for a fun filled family day!! I love easy layers and cross-bodies for the daily grind. it keeps me hands free and ready for a climate change. by now you're well aware of my love of kimonos. I love the tie-dye print and flowy fabric of this style and the side slits make it oh so airy. I paired it with a cut-off band tee which is usually my go-to top of choice. graphic tees tend to always layer well and up the cool factor of any outfit. these lace shorts have been on heavy rotation since the day I bought them. they're a little high-waisted and uber comfortable. both must haves in my book!! i finished the look off with a pop of leopard, although they didn't last long, the sky opened up, and they are suede, so I switched em out for strappy flops. i hope you enjoy this laid-back version of me. just remember, its a balance! let yourself have a day off every once in a while and learn to love the easy things in life!!
