Casual OOTD & Self Care

Tank / Kimono (similar here & here) / Jeans / Bag (similar here & here) / Bracelets (similar here & here) / Ring (ugh it’s sold out! here is a similar one) / Earrings (sold out – similar here & only $0.99!) / Shoes

I can’t remember the last time I wore heels. Even on the few dates we’ve had since having Charley, I’ve opted for flat sandals. And let’s be honest…wearing heels with an 11 month old is pointless! 😉 But I did enjoy {literally} dusting them off and wearing them again. These peep toe laser cut beauties are the perfect blend of styles — a classy beige color with an edgy silhouette. They’re versatile enough to wear with many different outfits but they’re not your basic beige pump (which everyone needs, by the way!). And I’m a sucker for wooden heels! <3

Another thing I love about this outfit is that it’s perfect for these incredibly hot and humid days we’ve been having. This kimono is super lightweight & comfortable. I love that I can dress it up or down; it’s totally acceptable for wearing around during the day and transitions easily to date night or happy hour. Black is always your friend, my dear!

Side note: There’s something so refreshing about getting ready as a mom. Even days where you manage to brush your hair, do your make up and throw on some jeans and a tee seem like a huge win! It seems silly but I always feel better when I get ready. I feel better about the day, I feel more motivated to be productive, and I typically feel more satisfied. It doesn’t matter if my circumstances stay the same or how many items I do or don’t check off my to do list, getting ready gives me a much needed boost!

Sometimes it can be hard to make time for yourself, but it is so important, especially as moms. I try to take at least 10 minutes to freshen up each day. It’s a work in progress, but I’m slowly getting it down! Just scheduled a hair appointment, too. I’m not even kidding you when I say it’s been a year… Yikes! So now to decide what style to get! I’ve been debating between a lob and just having her give me long layers/freshening up the ends. What do you think?!

xo,
Emily

    Love your outfit! I think the last time I wore heels was two years ago!! I still own a pair of Guess heels that I refuse to give up, even though I’m sure I’ll never wear them again. haha! And I love your kimono. I’ve never had one before. It looks like a great way for me to accessorize with jeans and leggings (my favorite mom outfit). 😀
