Mommy Chic Monday : Cell Phone Diaries
I've been kind of a bad bad personal style blogger as of late. I haven't posted a legit daily style outfit post in weeks and it's not because I haven't been getting dressed. I have. In fact I've kind of loved my outfits as of late, but I am knee deep in the 'find a place to live in 30 days' drama and it's kind of affecting my shooting schedule. So I thought I'd do a small recap of some of my favorite OOTD's from Instagram. Because you know #instagramatemyblog and all that.
Being a mama to an incredibly active toddler boy is a horse of a different color and getting dressed each day can be a challenge. Not the actual choice to get dressed because that's happening. But the whole what do I wear dilemma. I have to consider things like the weather, activities, errands and his tendency to throw food when he's over it. Thankfully he does most of the major throwing at dinner.
My friend posted last Friday about this similar dilemma and as I was reading I was all nodding in agreement because it can be quite difficult to decipher your daily fit when a toddler is in tow.
It's also been on my mind even more ever since I started doing morning drop off for Sweet Pea and get to see what all the other moms are wearing at 8am versus what they look like at 3pm (entertaining let me just tell ya) I even told my husband the other day as he commented on my outfit "you know I change about 2-3 times before you get home right"? And not just because of BabyNinja either, I'm a hot mess when it comes to eating so if there is a way that I can spill on my ensemble, it's bound to happen. Because I am gifted when it comes to that kind of stuff.

For instance, we go to My Gym once a week in the morning so I try to make it a point to wear comfy clothes so I can try to squeeze in a work out as he takes an AWESOME nap afterwards. However, most days I'm up and dressed at the same time as my husband and SweetPea. I still put on makeup and do my hair but maybe not as much unless we are going to run errands straight after drop off and I might run into someone I know.
