This was a fun week for me clotheswise, for a couple reasons. I realized that I don’t have to nurse Luke out of the house to much anymore since he is eating 3 solid meals a day and mainly nurses for naps and bedtime. Which opens up more possibilities in the way of clothing. i.e. dresses that don’t have a button top, long tunics with belts, real bras! ;) Yeah, that’s right. This also makes me change clothes more than once a day if I am going out, say for dinner with the family, or with the ladies to a movie (after Luke’s in bed).
Outfit 1: Wednesday Night dinner out with my boys
This was a prime example of changing before going out. My husband dresses up for work and so I like to wear a little bit nicer clothes if we go out f at night even if it’s just to Chipotle (Yum)! You know, jeans and a shirt(even a cute shirt) don’t really compliment men’s dress attire that well.
Dress: Ann Taylor Loft
Necklace: Target ( and Yes Luke puts any necklace I wear right in his mouth, but I refuse to give them up)
My dates for the above outfit.
Luke: Outfit is Amy Coe for Babies’r’us David: I think everything is from Kohl’s except his 5th and Lamar slim fit shirt.
Outfit #2: Saturday night Harry Potter date with 4 lovely ladies
It’s been a bit cooler in the evenings, and it’s always slightly chilly in a movie theater. Which lead me to put on jeans for the first time in months and grab a cardigan. Oh and yes, it took us awhile to all find a date to go see Harry Potter, and yes we did see it in 3d (awesome), and yes I LOVED it. ;)
Shirt: Linen Tank for Gap Outlet
Jeans: Old Navy
Flats: Salvation Army (Brand new from Target)
Here’s a close up of my cardigan addition. I bought this cardigan for around %60 off at Anthropolgie in their sale department and with my birthday %15 off coupon. I love it, and had been looking for a mustard cardigan for 2 years. Yes, two years. So I was sad to discover a tiny hole on the shoulder the first time I wore it. I thought about returning it, but it was the only one they had, and the two year search was in the back of my mind. So I grabbed a couple cute neutral fabrics from my stash and cut out a bunch of circles. I backed them with the best heat and bond stuff I have ever used and ironed them on. I like it, and feel it adds a fun little extra touch.
Outfit #3: Fabric shopping and ladies bible study
I bought this tunic on Monday and LOVE it. Its comfy, cute, and was less than $20.
Tunic: Forever 21 (it’s probably a dress, but I can’t do that short ;)
Belt: Borrowed from another Forever 21 Dress
Capris: Banana Republic Outlet
Shell Cuff: Gift from Brother and Sister-In-Law from I think Jamacia? or some other exotic local.
Weight Watchers: I gained 2.4 lbs last week. Boooooooo! ;) Oh well. I know why, I wasn’t following the plan well at all, and I seem to have a weakness for Chocolate Chip Cookies lately. I am hoping I did better this week.
Thanks for stopping by!
