How We Wore It

what we wore (11)

It’s that time of the month again! No, no, not that time of the month. Rather, the time of the month in which I pretend that I’m not a complete dork in front of the camera and Brian goes into photographer mode telling me how to stand and look. Despite the fact that I feel totally awkward being in pictures by myself (Where are my children? Aren’t they usually in photos with me? Ha!), I love participating in Brooke’s “How We Wore It” collabs. There’s no shopping involved, just sorting through my closet for a Pinterest inspired outfit. Which, until I cleaned it last weekend, my closet was just a pile of clothes on the floor a few feet high. No joke. I’m fairly certain it drove Brian crazzzzy, but he didn’t say anything. 😉 Anyway, this was our inspiration:

I was loving the loose shirt, ripped jeans, and heels, so that’s what I based my look on. Heels? Haven’t worn them in months! The only time I wear them nowadays is when I have Brian with me and he can carry the car seat or Addie girl. I tend to…be a little accident prone in heels. 😉 This white feminine top is my absolute favorite, especially when it comes to my postpartum body. I am working on being more confident in my postpartum-ness and being happy with the now. This quote hangs in our living room and it’s such a good reminder! Every once in awhile I catch myself thinking “I’ll be really happy when (fill in the blank)” and I quickly try to purge those thoughts as quickly as they came. Happiness is not a destination or an end goal. Happiness can be made now.

And, a quick picture with my photographer 😉 He’s the best.

    How are you so cool!? I've totally been guilty of wearing heels just for pictures, but taking them off right when the camera goes away! Ha. It's why I'm not a fashion blogger – reason 1042!

    i love everything about this! you look so great. i love heels but basically never wear them with jeans. this collab makes me want to a little more. i love that happiness quote. i try to avoid the i'll be happy when… but i catch myself doing it far too often. this is a good reminder to be happy right this very minute.

  • Alicia Snow

    You are adorable! Where is your top from? I love it!
