A Little Edgy, a Little Girly Bohemian.
Guys, I have been neglecting the blog and haven't had time to post. It takes so much to prepare a post: take the photos, delete the bad ones, edit the pictures, write out the post, edit the post, find the links to the items - which I have been slacking in the last couple of weeks, promote the post on my Instagram, etc, etc. But as with everyone, the start of my Summer has been so busy and I go into more of a routine/normal schedule next week. Case in point, I started writing this post two days ago and still didn't hit publish because I wasn't ready for it to go live. Thing is, though I have had a bunch of days off since I had to watch Vivian as she finished pre-school, I have been busy and tried to spend some quality time with her, rather than focus on the blog. This is still a hobby after all. Tomorrow is also "National Splurge Day" and I plan on 'splurging' by A) going to the beach (our nearby lake) with Viv and B) treating myself to some cute things from Loft which I had avoided for weeks, but all their tops+sweaters, plus a bunch of their dresses, skirts and shorts are 50% OFF right now! Yup Yup!!
Anyway, while I have been amiss here, I have been very much alive on Instagram and Insta stories so please follow me there. I post very different content on my Instagram account from the blog, always, and a lot of raw posts and favorite quotes - some of which are quotes by me - as well. =)
A LITTLE EDGY, A LITTLE BOHEMIAN.
Anyway, this outfit is from May but totally Summery too and a simple, cute and not-in-your face option for 4th of July since I am subtly wearing red, white and blue, don't you think?! I think the busted-knee jeans make this a little edgy though still very appropriate for a busy mom. I love these Skinny Busted-S=Knee jeans by Abercrombie. They still have them, though I have had mine for a long time. I got the size 27 but should have really gotten the 26. They have a lot of give. I think I could probably fit into 25s too (which means a size 0). Boo-ya weight loss! The Cute Poplin Red Blouse (clearance find at Target) definitely has that Bohemian Vibe to it as do the Light Father Blush Pink Earrings by Loft. The top and earrings are both totally girly too and I love that the white flowers of the top have a blush undertone to them, which matched the earrings. Last but not least, all praises go to these DV by Dolce Vita Taupe/Neutral Ghillie Wedges I got at Target last year. I have worn them at least 6-7 times so far this season. They go with everything and stayed tied-on! I reccommend the DV wedges from Target so much. Actually the Dolce Vita line at Target always has the cutest shoes!
