Sunday Style on a Thursday

As soon as Zaden became mobile, my Sunday style changed drastically. I use to wear lots of accessories, pencil skirts or a fitted dress, and high heels that I could barely speed walk in. However, I learned my lesson the hard way by having a little 10 month old get into all sorts of mischief while I could barely keep up with him without spraining my ankle, getting tangled up in my own accessories, or ripping my almost-too-tight pencil skirt when bending over to grab him. This was the perfect outfit to chase this little guy around the halls. Over-sized shirt, super comfortable maxi with lots of stretch, and heels I can actually run in if I need to (;

You also may or may have not noticed that I'm not wearing eye makeup. Zaden likes to sit down on the floor next to me and "help" me do my makeup by handing me different mascaras, lipsticks, etc. He usually takes off with something and I have to play scavenger hunt with him in order to retrieve said item. Well this particular Sunday he took off with my liquid eyeliner and we were running out of time so I decided to go naked-eyed.

I can't help but be matchy-matchy when it comes to dressing Zaden and I. I try so hard to not do it too often but always end up changing what I'm wearing in order to match him. Are any of you other mamas the same way or am I the only crazy one here?

  7. I never would have noticed you were bare eyed, your lashes are so thick you hide it well :) Love your boots and the coy smile of his!
