We try and keep up with our Mom Street Style submissions. But sometimes we get behind. And sometimes we get so behind that I've hung onto a pic for almost a year, just to make sure we're not showing Mom Street Style flip-flops in February.
But I cracked up when Kristen's email hit our inbox a few days ago. Shorts and flip-flops? And it's almost November? Clearly, despite my wanting very badly cold Fall weather (and hotcocoafuzzysweaters andboots) …we're not the only ones feeling the heat. Goodness, even in NY this past weekend (our fun little family train trip) it was downright hot during the day.
Hi ladies! I'm a 30-yr-old full-time working mom of Wynn (15 months) and a huge fan of your blog!
I thought I might have made you proud during our trip to the pumpkin patch this weekend. I had a few challenges: I wanted my outfit to reflect the Fall season, but it's still 85* here. And of course, it had to be suitable for chasing a toddler around. Enter a flowy, forgiving blouse (Old Navy), crisp cuffed black shorts (bebe), and a toddler-friendly piece of jewelry — a coral and gold cuff (local boutique). Add some stylish flip-flops (Tory Burch) and I was ready to chase Wynn through the petting zoo!
Thanks for always posting such great inspiration. I'm gonna read as long as you write!
Kristen, you look ah-mazing. We are so, so proud. Yay, you!! And MAN – Old Navy (of all places!!) has been killing it with their flowy tops this fall (I wrote about my favorite here). And let's all take a moment to sigh in bliss over shorts and flowy tops mom-i-forms. Ahhhhh….
I know, I know – I'm a horribly predictable shorts-lover. I can't help it. Like Gaga, I was born this way.
And Kirsten, you were obviously born fabulous. Thanks for writing in!
Ummm…BTW, Kristen is in FL, so I'm not sure if they ever get sweater-weather, but this outfit sure is reflective of the crazy Fall we've all been having. For those of you who are actually experiencing a cooler Fall (or want to rock an outfit like this into winter), this outfit would look amazing with tights, boots, a chunky scarf and parka. I'm thinking something like this…
And YES – I love black and navy together.
