Geometric Prints

  Dear Diary,
   I need positive energy!  I need serenity! I need light! Like everyone else I'm crumbling under stress and exhaustion (from first world issues of course).  So I'm putting on the loudest and brightest clothes and my brave face, hoping to channel happiness from the warm breeze of a beach paradise or get lost in some mysterious melody from a foreign country.  

Sounds like what I really need is a vacation?!

Chic in Elastic Waistband

Dear Diary,
  Weekend is almost here (but not soon enough).  Sometimes you just want to unload and shake everything off.  Forget your frumpy oversize t-shirt and yoga pants.  The best outfit to chillax in for you is this Joie jump suit.  I can literally jump, hop, and twirl (nap, too) comfortably in it all weekend long yet no one will accuse me of leaving the house in my PJ!

What Does He Think?

Dear Diary,
  I couldn't help but notice that men and women have very different taste when it comes to women's fashion.  When I wore this yellow lace peplum top with a bubble hem skirt, my husband complimented my not once...but twice. That makes me wonder what he thinks of my outfit when I try something more fun, less expected, and more... ME!?

Pretend

Dear Diary,
  It's been a while since I wore a pretty blouse with a jacket.  They are not the clothes of choice when it comes to running after a toddler who takes joy in being chased.  However, I miss this combination.  Maybe it's because it reminds me that I can be professional (or at least pretend to be) or gives the illusion that life with a LO is a piece of cake.

What's My Age Today?

Dear Diary,
  Should you be dressing your age?  Have I entered a stage in my life where there are age-inappropriate outfits for me (never!)?  If you look around you,  you'll realize no one is really dressing their age nowadays.  Because blurring the age line is always a sassy girl's goal.

What's Your Intention Today?

Dear Diary,
Why did you get dressed today?  Is it because it's the widely accepted thing to do in our society?   Are you dressing to hide your flaws or flaunt your assets?  Are you dressing to stand out or make yourself invisible?  Answers are different every day and might even be different a few times a day.   There's a story behind each look you encounter, some have more intentions than others.  While I'm not able to share my story today (because I can no longer protect my keyboard from my LO's chubby little fingers =================p-po-i=m˚m jnlπı:::::), but trust me when I say I had no desire to resemble a modern clown of any sort.... at least not today.  Happy cloudy Thursday.

Brave In Lace

Dear Diary,
What is seemingly delicate but strong,  intricate but mesmerizing,  elegant but extremely bold?  You might think I'm talking about this lace skirt but the answer is women.  To all the brave women out there:  No men can do what we do.
