J. Crew striped blazer

I feel like this is one of those outfits that looks 100% better in real life. Maybe I’m finally giving up embracing my current SAHM status and its casual wardrobe, but I felt very comfortable in this outfit. Not just nothing-pinches-and-I-can-breathe-fine comfortable, but feeling-good-and-loving-life comfortable. Know what I mean? But this photo is kind of … underwhelming. Boo. I’m going to blame it on the lighting being so damn poor. I still haven’t quite figured out when and how to take photos when it’s sunny outside. Wait! That makes it sound like I’m responsible; we can’t have that! Stupid, out-of-my-control lighting!

Also, there was other stuff happening:

Laughing at the very much not-imaginary noises coming from the back seat of the car

To wit: two small kids hooting and hollering in the back seat of the car. Luka is currently obsessed with “One More Night” by Maroon 5 (yes, he has deplorable taste in music), so he goes around “ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh”-ing. All. The. Time. His sister growls. Like, legit growls. (It is amusing to see people react to that after they’ve been cooing over the itty, bitty, cute baby for a few minutes. I call her “blood of the dragon”, because I have Targaryens on the brain, and she seems to like that. I know because she growls.) Anyway, the kids – partially responsible for the bad photos. Gosh, having kids is so convenient when it comes to making excuses, isn’t it?

Oh, and you can’t see it in said bad photos, but I was wearing a pretty necklace my husband gave me for my birthday last year. This one:

  1. Sunny days are the worst to take pictures. The only thing you can do is open up the aperture and set it to something higher like +1 but then it washes out the background.. you won’t see anything in the back.

    • They’re so easy, aren’t they? Gwyneth Paltrow used to have some of THE best jeans/blazer outfits, and I “borrowed” a lot of her looks back in the day.
      Generally, though, I’m not the biggest fan of blazers (they feel too constrictive), but nothing beats them for that cool/effortless/stylish casual vibe.

  2. First of all, what is that nail polish you’re wearing, I LOVE it! Also, I feel sad for you that you don’t have any leaves yet, and it’s June! Poor thing…
