What I Wore: August Rush

Wednesday, September 2, 2015

Can we talk about how much I love my children, but how much I love that my house is so quiet around 8:30 am every morning now? They started back to school and I'm just left here working and having full conversations with my dog.

We packed a ton of stuff into August, because it's usually the time I start feeling guilty about not doing enough summer activities before school starts. We've hit up museums, waterparks, boating, and we just got back from Yellowstone (which was beautiful but far too much physical activity for an actual vacation).

Now that things are calming down, I'm just waiting for the weather to change so I can start wearing actual outfits again. I can only do so much with a T-shirt and jeans. It's too hot for layering. Utah, feel free to get it together anytime.

Top: H&M (similar) (similar
Skirt: Local boutique - you can buy online though! (here) (considering this one next!)
Boots: Frye Isa (here) Seriously the detail on these makes me die (cheaper option)
Necklace: Nordstrom (similar) (this one is literally $4)
Bracelets: Marc Jacbos, Ardene (Canada)

This is the first time I got to wear my new Frye boots that my lovely husband bought for my birthday. Seriously you guys, one pair of Fryes is like a gateway pair. Then you can't stop buying them forever because other boots feel terrible. My advice is to not start at all. I got them in July, but it's been too warm to really wear anything but flip flops. I cheated the system and wore them to a Shania Twain concert (because obviously) and then with a skirt the next day. I am a devious genius. I cannot wait to start wearing them with any sort of regularity. I just went fall pants shopping (I KNOW IT'S TOO EARLY) and got some black skinnies that these will look suh cyut with.

Top: Calvin Klein (print is gone, same fit)
Pants: Calvin Klein (similar)
Shoes: Dollhouse (similar) (sparkly!
Necklace: F21 (similar) (waaaaant

I'm reasonably sure I wore this to go see Shaun the Sheep with my kids, which BY THE WAY is friggin' adorable. My husband was so embarrassed because I have a loud theater laugh and there were only like, three other people there. But man there is just something about sheep and British stop motion movies amiright? 

Top: H&M (one of the five that I now own of this exact shirt. Please send help and also money to buy more shirts.)
Skirt: Old Navy and very old and the only thing I've ever bought from there that didn't end up horribly disfigured after laundering (similar) (plus)
Shoes: Soda and also very old (similar) (yes please)

I'll never get tired of semi-nautical style and I just really wanted a chance to wear these shoes again because they're so fun but look exceedingly patriotic when worn with the wrong clothes. Luckily, I have a neverending supply of these H&M tops and the light blue offset the red, white, and blue a little. So, you know, it's necessary to keep buying them. 

T-shirt: Decree (here) It's $9 and probably the perfect-est white tee I've ever owned. 
Jeans: Calvin Klein (here but no zippers :( 
Boots: Dexflex @ Payless (similar) (wedge)
Necklace: Nordstrom 
Bracelet: My son picked it out for my birthday. He has excellent taste for a 6-year-old. 

OK,OK so this was yesterday and technically September, but you'll probably notice that consistency is not my strongest point. I wore this out to lunch with my husband for his birthday. He is super private about his personal life at work, but we ran into basically his entire office while out to lunch, so I sneaked over and told his boss that it was his birthday. I got an accusatory text an hour later, when 20 people were in his office singing "Happy Birthday." Suckaaaaaaa.

Also, I bought these boots on a whim like, four months ago and this is the first time I've ever worn them. I think I only paid like $15 for them, which is about what you should spend on novelty stuff like leopard-print booties. They only really look good with jeans and a T-shirt. Everything else just comes off as vampy. So basically what I'm saying is bootie buyer beware. 

Remember that you can always see outfits over on Instagram (@nomoremomjeans) and I have some product reviews on the docket too. I'm trying to think up a couple of good fall-related posts but it's only September 2nd and I might be getting ahead of myself. Seriously, these 94-degree days are killing me inside.

Aaaaahhhh, Jae!

I swear I'm not stupid, but Instagram won't let me sign in! I tried using my phone, but then a notification pops up that says I need to allow IG access to all of my information in my contacts, my activity, etc., and that made me a little nervous.

My birthday was a few days ago, too!

I love your red and white shoes.

I just don't understand Instagram. I tried. But I don't get it.

I also love your shoes.

Also also I'm going on my first cruise next week and there's a dress code and I'm sort of worried I'm going to starve because they won't like what I'm wearing-alternately I'm going to be too dressed up all the time and won't have any fun. It's stressing me out.

Allison, I was just talking with my mom about a cruise and I said I would be stressed out too. But mostly because I'm bad at small talk so like, sitting next to a stranger at dinner would make me want to light myself on fire. Your clothes will be totally fine. When in doubt, wear a maxi dress.

Nora, birthday twins woo hoo!
