I know, I know. It's February. But I was about to post our January mom (late) and realized that we hadn't yet posted our December mom. Sigh. Prior to becoming a mom, I had a slight problem with getting places on time. (I can hear my friends all snorting with derision). Now that I'm a mom, time has ceased to have any meaning whatsoever.
But our December mom is too good to miss. Meet Emily – she's actually Raines' nanny. So not technically a mom, but Em certainly knows how to look cute and be comfortable around the kiddos! I'm always amazed at what she puts together: she could seriously be a regular feature.
In any case, I wanted to highlight a cool trick that she taught me this past December. You know those shirts that come with their own sash? (Or belt, or whatever) Em layered the shirt under a boyfriend cardi, and then used the sash belt over the cardi to better define her waist. Genius!
I love that you could also pull this off with any cute sash belt. Try also a skinny scarf or a man's tie. Just layer a thin boyfriend cardi over a longish tunic, and tie your sash of choice around your natural waist, like Em.
