A Summer Mom Uniform and Five Fav Things: Life in Mod

1

Hi!
It's me, Cams. Some of you may know me by now, but if not…well, hello. Nice
to meet you! :). I blog over at Life in Mod- all about being a mama, styling
through all of the changes life brings, yada yada. It's a fun gig. ps. I am now
14 weeks pregnant with our 2nd…which is awesome

Sooo…S.
She's amazing, eh? Let me just say that first and foremost. She has been such
an amazing example of strength for me these past few months. Every time I have
spoken to her within the past couple of months she has blown me away with her
positive attitude. It's like, wow…if I was in the same situation would I
handle it with such grace, patience and …even spunk? Probably not. She's a
superwoman. S, I am so happy to have met you via the blogosphere. I consider you
a dear friend (as silly as that may sound since all of our communication has
been 99% blog related). Still. I really do. You are a blessing to so many. xx.

Now
that all of my sap is gone, let us move on… ;)

 

Summer Mom Uniform

My
favorite go-to Summer momiform is denim cut-offs, a tee, sandals and aviators.
It's just a win on all accounts- simple, yet gives me that
I'm-still-cool-even-though-I'm-a-mom look. I think… ;)

 

1.  My Most-Worn Item of Clothing

Well, very recently I
became the proud owner of a pair of white Converse Chuck Taylors. Why the H did
I just think to buy them? They are glorious (and I found them on E-bay *brand
new* which makes them that much cooler). I have been wearing them everywhere…with
almost everything (except maybe to bed with my pjs). Here's where you can find
yourself a pair.

 

2. A Fall Piece I'm Currently Coveting

Either these or these.(Molly's note: the Wyatt Disc shorties are to-die, and they're included in the Nordstrom sale for $219 – SOLD!). *swoon* Take me now,
Frye..with your genuine leather and rough, edgy-ness. I am putting these at the
top of my 'Honey, I love you. Can I buy these? I'll never buy anything again'
list.

3. Something That Makes Summer-With-Kids Easier

Moo
& I are currently becoming sidewalk chalk artistes. It keeps her busy for
at least 20 min (which is a long time for a toddler). I'm all about the
"old fashioned" ways of Summer entertainment for kids- chalk,
sprinklers, bubbles etc. 

4. My Fav Summer Recipe

Anything
grilled, really. I just pinned this grilled
Salmon with Corn recipe and would really like to try it. Really

5. The One Make-Up Product I Can't Live Without 

BBCream.
Yeh, I jumped on that train…and I love it. It's lighter feeling than a
foundation, but seems to give me the same amount of coverage. I've heard
there's a new runner-up. What is this CC Cream? Hmmm. For now I am sticking with
my BB. FYI, I pick it up at Target.

 

Shana Update:

    Congrats on your great news, Cam!
    I love your summer mom uniform- I have just rediscovered a love for shorts. I guess it is because I have realized I don’t give a flying fig newton if my legs are less than Giselle like- it is more practical to throw them on and go than fuss with a skirt. That being said, any tips on finding the right pair of denim cut offs? I find that they are either too short and reveal my um, assets, or too frumpy- yours look adorable.
    Thanks for the update on Shana. Still sending her lots of love and healing vibes. And you are right, Cam, she is pretty amazing!

    Takes a true amount of strength to handle this type of situation gracefully, and Shana’s is most impressive.
    Fashion wise though, where did you get that vneck? I’m on the hunt for my white tee and that… that looks like the one!

    Congrats mama! I checked out your blog but it won’t let me comment. Anyways, I said it once & I’ll say it again. You mamas inspire me in the “fashion” department. All my life, I just tended to throw something on. Anything really. But since reading this blog, and now, yours too, you’ve inspired me to “shop my closet” It’s amazing what kind of stuff I can put together with a little bit more time. I’m nowhere near as fashionable as you all, but you inspire me.

    That’s weird…I’ll look into the comments problem! Sorry about that.
    Thanks for the congrats :)! It is very exciting.
    I am so happy that we’ve been an inspiration for you…when I first had my daughter I gave up a bit in the style dept, but soon realized I felt icky and needed to snap out of it. Life in Mod helped to inspire me to get dressed again.
    Happy to have you as a new reader, Bianca!
    Cheers.

    Hi, Emily! I found it at Marshalls, actually. When I’m looking for basic basics I usually will head to Target or Marshalls…no need to spend a lot on something I will wear a lot and end up needing more of soon :).
    Cheers.

    Thank you, Beth! :) Good for you for not giving a flying fig! I just recently started getting the lovely thing called cellulite on the backs of my legs…and while I’d rather cover them right up …I have decided to just wear those shorts. There are too many pairs of cute shorts to pass up!! ;)
    I found this pair on thredUP (like-new clothing…online consignment shopping). They are Madewell and awesome. They don’t show too much, but aren’t down past my knees. I would look for styles that look like they have some relaxed give and also some length (they can always be rolled like mine!).
    Cheers.
