Blue Stripes

Happy Monday Beautiful People!
Hope you had a lovely weekend. Mine was ok. Majority of it was spent putting things things away at the new place and attending a friend's birthday party, which I enjoyed. It was great mingling with friends outside of church, since that's the only group of people I call friends here. It's even better when you're sharing stories and experiences with new moms, just like yourself. On a different note, I want to say I'm sure I'm not the only mom that feels guilty when Sunday evening/Monday morning rolls in and I think about how much of my weekend I actually spend sitting and playing/bounding with Miss E. Is it just me or is there anyone else out there? Is this guilt feeling natural? Then again, we just moved and that's bound to keep me busy for a little while along with the regular daily life stuff. I am being caution regarding what I put on my to-do list for the weekends, however, I just feel like I never set aside enough time for Miss E. It doesn't help that she's always sleeping either (not that I'm complaining about that). I guess this is the rant of a new/working mom.

By the time I got around to checking the Zara sales, there were very few things left in my size that actually interest me and this skirt was one of them. Love the bold stripes and the fit. I played off the color and went with a semi causal look by pairing it with a denim jacket, blue necklace and a white lace top. My heels have always been high and higher, but since becoming a mom, I'm finding low heels attractive. Don't want that to translate into boring, but they can be comfortable for getting the job done sometimes. Leaving home in the morning now involves 4 bags sometimes 5(handbag, lunch bag, pump tote, diaper bag and sometimes work laptop) and a baby and car seat. Doing all that in a 4 inch heel, well isn't very practical. Most of the time I wear my flats till I get to work then change. But, on days I'm wearing shoes like this, I don't have to worry about flats. One less thing to pack. Which is why when I found this at Target, I didn't think twice about it.
Have a lovely week everyone.

  1. I have those same exact shoes from Target.

    1. They are hard to resist. They pattern, the height, plus the pointed toe. Nothing can go wrong. And they are pretty comfy too. I really didn't think twice about it.


I enjoy reading all your comments and I highly appreciate you taking the time to leave one. So, go ahead, speak you mind!
