Mom-Approved Fashion: A Mediocre Summer Outfit

STYLE

So, I wasn’t going to post this outfit for SO MANY REASONS.

I mean, it’s a pair of striped jean shorts with a tank top and my diaper bag turned purse (which I’m still obsessed with and truly goes with everything). Nothing too aspirational, but then there’s this photo above and turns out there are all sorts of inspiring things happening here, they just have nothing to do with me.

It’s a subtle way of telling the world, “Hey, I may have oatmeal all over the front of my shirt, but I care enough to match my accessories so BOO-YAH.”

And when I see myself on video, I often cannot believe the astoundingly ridiculous faces I make. But, that is totally cool. I’m not in this to win any beauty contests or even contests for Mom with the Least Amount of Chins. I’m in this to have a good time with my kids, to be the biggest version of myself I can be, and to try not to scare our neighbors too often with our singing.

And with that I’m going to post this sucker and take my highly imperfect self off to have yet another iced coffee and call this day a win.
