Shall We Call Vogue?

I'm on a mission this year...a mission to be present myself better to the outside world.  Don't get me wrong-I don't think I scream bag lady or anything.  But as a SAHM, a lot of days I don't manage to make it out of my yoga pants/workout top because it would just be a waste!  And while I kind of relished that fact for awhile, I also started to get a little fed up with the fact that I no longer got "dressed."  So I made a little compromise with myself.  If our day's agenda involves more than errand running, I would get dressed.  Add that to our typical Friday and Saturday nights out, and there's probably 3-4 times a week that I now get dressed.
But here's where I decided I needed to up my game.  If I'm only getting dressed 3-4 times a week, I reasoned I should be able to take the time to do more than just put on a top and jeans.  Instead, I've decided to try to put together "outfits" know, with accessories and such involved.
Before I show you some of last week's looks, I should warn you that I'm not very good at taking these pictures!So here we go...

I used to think my goal was to be secretly thought of as a MILF, but recently I've realized I'm not nearly sexy enough to pull that off!  I go for things that are comfortable and practical for days spent at the bounce house/park/whatever, but hopefully with a bit of a style to it!  So how did I do?

  1. All of these look super cute! I love the first outfit--may have seen it on your sister when I was up there, too ;) (so jealous--wish I had a sister to swap outfit ideas with!!)
