WhatIWore: Behind that smile is a sick and tired mama. I thought I could soldier on and go out to a coffee shop to work (really trying to step up productivity around WIW lately!), but instead I threw on some pajama pants and went straight to bed after we took these photos. First Adam got sick at the end of our trip, then Felix kinda/sorta got it (his immune system is incredible, thanks breastfeeding!) and after taking care of everyone else… mom gets sick. I thought I almost got by without getting the bug, but my throat feels like stabbing knives and I’m soooo tired. Boo hoo.
I wore this kind of outfit a lot last summer (see here and here). I like this skirt a lot as an alternative to shorts - it pairs nicely with tee shirts and I actually wore it yesterday afternoon too! I like the combo of stripes and polka dots as well. Luckily for me, there always at least one striped shirt in the clean laundry pile (because it feels like that’s the only thing I buy anymore… other than white eyelet tops!) Anyway… I’m gonna grab a cup of tea and sort out lunch for the little guy and then plop our bums on the couch for a movie marathon afternoon. You gotta do what you’ve gotta do, right?
And if you’re wondering why I tried at all… it might be our last sunny day for a week (!!) and I didn’t shower - just some BB cream, sunglasses and a half assed attempt at freshening up my hair!
