 Some days a shower and real clothes are far beyond my reach.  Moms, you know what I’m talking about.  For me, yesterday was one of those days.  We’re back from an awesome family holiday {I’ll share more on our vacay in an upcoming post.} and all of a sudden I’m launched back into real life.  Loads of work, piles of laundry, and a toddler with a schedule all out of whack.  And by this, I of course mean we had a one hour melt down of screaming and crying while we tried to go down for a nap.  Eventually, I conceded, brought her down to the living room where she passed out on the floor 20 minutes into Ratatouille.  During her nap, I had a meeting with Alicia and managed to get a bunch of client work done.
*** Can we just pause and talk about how incredible sweet Alicia is. I was in full stressful mommy mode and she let herself in (naturally with the keys I accidentally left in our front door), put on a pot of coffee, did my dishes I had in the sink, and had a smile on her face when I came downstairs. This definitely prevented me from loosing it. It’s those little things that mean so much. ***

Some days, however, I manage to have a quick shower and put on some real grown up clothes.  Lately, I’ve been opting for comfort and function.  These Banana Republic pants have been on repeat.  They are ridiculously comfortable!  This easy, albeit wrinkly, blouse from Old Navy in this gorgeous maroon colour is an easy piece for me to feel a bit more dressed up in.  I tend to do the cardi thing more than blazers.  Again, more comfortable and usually easier to wash.  To complete my look?  A top knot of course!

So Mommas, hang in there and find yourself  a couple of easy to wear uniforms for days when we can do more than yoga pants.
