Belle

I feel really good about my outfit today and thought I’d photograph it. Excuse the terrible photo quality. I did these with my webcam since my phone is gone and the big camera needs a charge.

I built my best capsule wardrobe yet this winter. I am so pleased with how everything mixes and matches, and how no matter what I wear I feel great. Every single piece fits my body and life so well. Today I’m sporting an oversized gray sweater (hand-me-down from a friend), long sleeved black T (old from Loft), black compression running pants (old from Old Navy), grey knit legwarmers (clearance from Old Navy) and slip-on Skechers (clearance at TJ Maxx). The outfit is warm, comfy and perfect for a day of running around with my mini-me!

I think it is especially important for Mama’s who stay home to keep a sense of pride in how they look. Just because we spend all day with a snotty nose tyrant does not mean we should feel poorly about our look. Getting dressed each day is a few minutes of time just for myself and sets us up to have another excellent day!

I should also take a moment to update on my nose. I am so thankful for the amazing plastic surgeon and feel it was WELL WORTH all the hunting to find the right one. He did beautiful work. I will go back to him should I ever have more cancer removed from my face. I also had a dermatologist appointment yesterday for another spot on my shoulder (not cancer thank goodness) and to do a full-body check. She was so pleased with how my nose is healing and called me “a great healer who will live forever!” Such a nice thing to hear after all the medical drama of the last five years!

What is your favorite outfit this season? Would you be interested in reading more about my winter capsule?

    I love the outfit, and your nose is beautiful! I’d love to hear more about your capsule. I desperately need to do some wardrobe purging–maybe Sunday. It’s just that I can only wear black, white, and gray at work, so I hate to lose anything with color.

    I have always struggled with my “wardrobe,” if you can even call it that. It’s a closet and a dresser full of good intentions and high hopes…but then I just end up always wearing the same 5 outfits. Especially in the winter. How do you do it?!

    You’re super presh! I love your style-I always try to look that effortless, but I never feel like I pull it off.

    I’m trying to figure out how to take good pictures of products for my etsy store. Have an tips? I have a Nikon coolpix and I’m hopeless with it.

    leg warmers. That is awesome. If I wore legwarmers I would look like an overgrown caterpillar you on the other hand look gorgeous 😉 and don’t even get me started on the other model in the background.

    Looking good mama! Even with my not so capsule wardrobe I find dressing as a mama damn near impossible!
