Last summer, Raines spent two weeks at Camp Twin Creeks, a sleepaway camp. Long story short? Pax and I (both back at home) went mental; Raines loved it.
We pulled into the parking lot where you meet the buses (based in West Virginia, Camp Twin Creeks buses kids in from DC), and I literally turned around and was like, “RAINES! YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO! HONEY, WE CAN GO HOME RIGHT NOW!!”
Raines, used to his mother’s, um…dramatic tendencies, just rolled his eyes. “I’m gonna be fine, Mom.” And then, noticing my expression, adds, “You’re gonna be fine, too, Mom.”
Somehow in the packing frenzy, I ended up throwing a tank top over my maxi dress to hide a spill as we were running out the door. A serendipitous spill, as it turns out, because this knotted-tee-over-maxi-dress is one styling trick I keep trotting out on the regular. Tricky bra issues you don’t feel like dealing with? Knot a tee. Ate too much + tight dress situation? Knot a tee. Just need a change up? YUP: Knot a tee.
Funny story: after we dropped off R, we took Pax to the Baltimore aquarium. We were standing in line for tickets, and I must have spaced out for a minute, because all of a sudden I hear over the loudspeaker, “HEY KHALEESI – TICKET WINDOW 3 IS OPEN!”
tank: Foster LA Mother of Dragons Tee – shoot! It looks like they’re not carrying this one anymore. I love supporting Foster LA, but if you really want a Khaleesi shirt, this one. (Actually, I want EVERYTHING in that Etsy store. Especially this and this.)
sandals: last year’s Steve Madden flatforms…here’s a similar pair from this year.
