What I Wore Sunday: Quick & Easy


Shirt: Wrapper| Skirt: MNG Jeans | Necklace: Premier Designs
Leggings: Old Navy (Maternity) | Boots: Big Buddha
 

Remember the sweater I wore on ThanksgivingThis skirt is another new-to-me piece thanks to my sister-in-law.  I finally found all my leggings, including these super comfy maternity ones.  (No you didn't miss a pregnancy announcement, these leggings are just that awesome that they get used out of "season", so to speak.)  Oh yeah, and this necklace is new courtesy of a Premier Designs party.  I generally don't buy accessories because I usually don't wear them, but I have a similar gold-toned necklace (I wore it here) that gets more use than all my other necklaces combined, so I thought I might actually wear a similar silver-toned one.  I was proud of myself for remembering to throw it on this morning.

This outfit should be titled, "What I Wore When My Baby Was Sick and I Had Five Minutes to Get Ready."  Wonderful mother that I am, I gave Lucia the nasty cold I had last week.  (It undoubtedly was gifted it from one of my lovely students.)  She stayed home with my mom while David and I enjoyed Mass without a little one crawling all over us.  I got to listen to the entire homily, but I would have much rather had my sweet pea with us.  Mass just isn't the same if we can't enjoy it as a family.

I feel like I also experienced my first "I HATE working outside the home" moment this morning.  I enjoy teaching, and working only three days a week generally gives me much of the flexibility of a stay-at-home mom.  But with Lucia being sick, she can't go to the babysitter's and both David and I work tomorrow.  It's not easy for either of us to find someone to cover for us, much less on such short notice, and all I could think was, "My baby's sick and I have to work instead of care for her."  Thank goodness, my sister-in-law saved the day (as she often does) and is coming to watch her niece tomorrow.  I don't know how moms (including stay-at-home moms) survive without family nearby.

  1. Cute outfit! I am with you on experiencing those moments when my daughter's sick and I have to be gone instead of at home with her :( It is a nearly impossible situation without having family very close, and my parents just live 45 minutes from us now!

  3. You look like you work great under pressure. I'd never guess that you only had 5 minutes :-) Happy to be your newest sponsor! I hope little Lucia feels 100% soon.

  5. I hope she feels better soon! I feel like with children though... everyone gets sick all the time! LOL. At least I know we do. This season has been rough. If it's any consolation, you still look cute, Mama!

  6. Five minutes? Impressed. And germs are all I feel my students give me.

  7. Poor Lucia; I hope she's doing better! I am obssessed with your boots--I've been on the lookout for cowboy boots, but haven't decided if they fit the vibe of my little mountain town =)
