What I Should be Wearing Today

October 30, 2009

In actuality I am sitting on my couch next to a pile of clean laundry trying to finish Harper’s costume in what can only be described as Britney Spears on a good day, i.e. Target sweats and a stained hoodie with yesterday’s makeup and hair that is inexplicable.

Since I do spend a lot of days in this state I should probably invest in some cuter lounge cloths. Here is what I should be wearing today:

I would start with a basic cozy long sleeved tee (much like the black tee I got from Marshall’s for my Halloween costume for $5.99) and throw this genius jersey/sweat shirt wrap from Lirola, just as cozy as a sweatshirt, night shirt or robe but could we worn anywhere from a coffee run to a wedding.

What time is it!? Did I leave the baby in the car? WHERE”S MY COFFEE!!! And who does casual sneakers better that Converse.  These hot pink slip on’s from Zappos.com add a little fun to this outfit and can dress down a pair of black slacks, trust me.  I have compared notes with friends and fam that wear their Chuck Taylor’s to the office,  all agreed they were probably their most complimented shoe.  Fun and unexpected.

Ok hair and face, we need to have a talk.  What you have going on isn’t working.  I only blame myself.     I swear this is all it takes.  You may recognize some of these products from previous posts.  I kind of stick with what works.  I don’t wear much make-up day to day, the baby is not impressed.  I was using Aveda Energizing Oil (about $40 a bottle) I recently switched to Bio-Oil, about $10.  This takes me less than 5 minutes to look and feel refreshed.

Throw on a pair of stud earrings and I would be ready to go just about anywhere, as long as it was day and I had the baby with me; people pity sad baby ladies.
