What I Wore | Out with the Old


WhatIWore: First up - Happy New Year!! I hope your year is already off to a great start and you’re looking forward to 2015 as much as I am. I’m SO ready to get back into the groove of things and I finally feel like I’m adjusting nicely to being a new mom AND back to being myself. I want to write about this in depth later, but during those first weeks and months I went through one hell of an identity crisis. 

Anyway, I love starting fresh at the beginning of the year (see my resolutions here) so I decided to chop off my hair. I usually decide to do drastic cuts and schedule them within a day or two and just go for it. Sitting in the chair I had absolutely no emotional response, which was kind of weird! I like it a lot and it’s easy to care for, which is basically the main point for me. I’ll be sure to photograph it without a hat soon so you can see the full ‘do.

When: December 29, 2014

Hat: Self Made
Shades: Cactus Flower (local boutique)
Sweater: J.Crew
Coat: Gift (similar)
Jeans: J.Crew (40% off with code STYLE2015)
Booties: Frye 'Patty’
Bag: DvF (on sale)

Where: Running Errands with the bebe

Why: You may be reading this text and wonder why the hell I’d be getting dressed up to run errands in my small little Midwestern town? Because it’s the cardinal rule of grocery store shopping that you WILL RUN INTO SOMEONE YOU KNOW when you look like hell. And when I look that bad, it’s time for daddy to take over baby duty and for me to get some time to rest/shower instead of going to the store. #amiright

Also…this coat! It was actually a Christmas gift over 10 years ago from my mom! I was going through a 'camel’ phase and she tracked down this beauty.  There were a lot of years I was on the fence about it, but I’m glad I kept it because it reads sort of aprés ski chic to me.
