I wear navy like it’s going outta style, so thank goodness it’s not. I know that I definitely need to amp up the color in the upcoming weeks to be fashion forward (scratch that, just “reasonably fashionable”) for fall, and turn away from maxi dresses to be appropriate for the season. In my defense, we need to stay so bundled for so long in Minnesota, I’m going to take advantage of every warm day we get. And I should note that this Michael Kors dress was super versatile for the past several months. It was particularly well-suited for work travel, as it didn’t show spills (I can’t complete a trip to the airport and boarding the plane without spilling coffee or dropping an ink pen on my lap), didn’t wrinkle, and took up little space in the suitcase on the way home.
Reality Check. You know what’s not a good idea? Taking a 2½ year old with you to snap pictures on a railroad car. Not a stellar mom move to climb around on what appears to be a giant toy and then tell your toddler “No!” when she comes near it and wants to do exactly what mommy is doing. If only I had brought along a couple of cupcakes to eat in front of her, that would really have sealed the mom of the year moment. I also should take better care in what I am memorializing for her to see at a later date. And not just the train, but that I’m decked out in Michael Kors, Kate Spade, etc., while she is sporting Crocs and PJs I dug out of a bin at Costco. I’ll pay for this someday.
