Mamas. I ran into Paola at the playground a few days ago, and loved her take on a playground-momiform. You know how enamored I am of neon + army green….but with chambray? Genius!
Best of all? After I struck up a conversation, she revealed to me that she is a pretty die-hard bargin shopper. "You don't need to spend a ton of money," Paola shrugged. "Just choose the right pieces….carefully."
But don't expect to find Little Batman's gorgeous Mama in sneakers. "Augh! So many big sneakers….everywhere. Never! I cannot." She fixes me with a look. "You do not have to wear sneakers just because you have kids."
Luckily, I happened to be in my desert boots that day…rather than my usual Converse. But I'll bet Paola was really talking about actual running shoes – the big, soul-less ones that appeared to be the footwear-of-choice at the park. On that front, I'm with her whole-heartedly. My real running shoes aren't even all that comfortable unless I'm actually, you know, running. (And then I'm uncomfortable all over…but for a whole different reason.)
Paola, thanks for being such a good sport, and providing us all with some neon inspiration! I don't know about the rest of you, but I might need to make a Target run….
