Out of Office

Tees with script have been in style for a while now, and I’ve tried on my fair share. I never seem to be able to pull it off, perhaps because sayings in French seem prevalent. If I need to Google the phrase to find out what I’m going to have written across my chest, then I figure I shouldn’t buy it. But “Out of Office” spoke to me. And not just because it’s in English. Hanging out on the weekend is great, but even better is hanging out on a weekday.



Subtle Repeat

Pairing short shorts with a midriff-showing, pattern mixing top is absolutely NOT a realistic look for me, but I loved how the checked pattern of the shirt was repeated in the small piping at the bottom of the shorts.  It seemed too stuffy and awkward to wear the shirt tucked in, which was my original plan. The repeat is subtle. The outfit, not so much.



Checking In

When Taylor was little, it was a rare occasion when Trevor and I had time together, just the two of us. As working parents, I think we felt that we needed to spend as much time as possible with the little dude, since we missed so much of the day with him. Then Ella came along. And she came with colic. So, I quickly took the advice we had heard for years, got on the task of finding a babysitter, and asked her to come on a regular schedule. At least once every other week we have a date night on the books – a time to check in with each other. It’s a good excuse to doll up a bit (most nights, my make-up is off and I’m in sweats within about 6 minutes of getting home), and a great time for the two of us to ask each other questions other than “when do swimming lessons start?” or “can you take T to the birthday party this weekend?”
