Primary Colors

I thought I would never be one of those mom's who wants to be all matchy-matchy with their baby but here I am guilty as charged. I decided to dress us in primary colors for church on Sunday. Z is like most babies and would rather be naked or in something more simple, however, I like to dress him up extra fancy for church on Sundays (;

My look was very simple and most importantly comfortable! I wore an oversized plaid shirt, my new favorite maxi skirt, and some booties I got on clearance. I ended up thrifting this flannel shirt in the mens department a few years back. I didn't wear it very often before but little did I know how much I would wear it after I got pregnant. Since it's oversized it worked perfectly during pregnancy and since it's a button up it also works great for nursing! I like to knot it to give me a waist line instead of tucking it in for a more funky look.

Target has been my favorite place to shop as of late. I've gotten so many staple pieces for my summer wardrobe. I rarely pay regular price for anything but I couldn't resist buying this maxi skirt. It's flattering on all body types and gives us women that nice hour glass shape since it's snug around the hips. I like that it has a slit that doesn't go too far up the leg and that it's super stretchy and easy to move around in. I also bought these booties at Target on clearance for a little under $11, not bad for a new pair of boots.
