I remember growing up and wondering what in the world my mom did all day while my brother and I were in school. In my mind it went something like this:
7:30am- Get kids off to school
7:35am- Back to bed
11:00am- Wake up and watch “Dr.Phil”
1:00pm- “Days of Our Lives”
2:30pm- Get out of pajamas
2:45pm- Kids come home
I’d like this post to be a public apology to my mom, Susie, because it’s only after having my own child that I realize being “Mom” is the hardest job in the world. I just pray I can do it half as well as she did! She’d volunteer to help anyone that needed it, have dinner on the table every night at 6:00pm, and keep a spotless house.
All while wearing heels and a french twist. Pretty amazing, right?
Yesterday I had an event and didn’t have time to change, so that meant running the dog to the vet (just a check up!), soccer practice, etc. in a skirt and heels. Is it weird that I felt better all day than when I wear my normal “mom uniform”? (In case you’re wondering thats Lululemon Yoga Pants.. without the yoga.) I’m not saying I want to look like a Stepford Wife, or that it’s only what you look like on the outside that matters, but maybe there’s more truth to the saying, “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world,” than I thought! Am I crazy or do you all feel better when you get dressed up too? Let me know your secrets in the comments!
I got these shoes a few weeks ago and LOVE them! They’re super comfortable and now I’m wondering what I wore before I bought them. Also, anyone who knows me knows that turquoise is a neutral in my life and how cute is my bag? Gigi New York does free personalizing, which is perfect for me since my initials will be changing pretty soon! (*All outfit details/links listed under the top picture)
