Fashion Friday….. Bumming It

Bumming Around

Ever have those days, where you just don’t want to get all dolled up? Where you just kinda want to bum around. I have those days more then I want to admit. Don’t get me wrong, I love getting all girly; the skirts and summer dresses, a cute pair of wedges. But you know what? Its a lot of work, and some days I just don’t have it in me. Or, I am taking the kids to the park and its just not practical. What to do on those days? I call it a “bumming day”.

  • Jeans– Yup, I have them again. I love jeans. I don’t think that you fully grasp my obsession with them, but that’s ok. While I normally like a capri cut better then the bermuda style, these particular ones are fabulous. There are a few great things about them; first, they are a skinny style. This is going to help hold in your thighs (if you are like me and carry a little weight in them), plus they will make your behind look great. Also, the distressed look is very in and is probably not going to be going anywhere for a while. If you are going to bum it, then go all out, and commit to the look by ripping up the jeans a bit.
  • Shirt– V-Necks are so controversial. Some people love them, some are completely against them. I like that this shirt, while technically a V-Neck, is very minimally one. You get the style, without showing off any cleavage. V-Necks will make you look thinner by elongating your neck area. I like that this shirt has the very smallest amount of sleeves possible. I tend to have that little roll of… stuff… you know, between your body and your arm. I LOVE tank tops, but they are not the most flattering, unless you are very thin. This, you get the benefit of a tank but it covers that problem area. Also, with is being a loose fitting, it will hide any mommy-pouches in the tummy area. Come on, I can’t be the only one with these problem areas. Right??
  • Sneaks– To really play up the bumming attitude you gotta rock the sneaks. (Do people still call them sneaks or am I showing my age here?) Love that the gray in these ties in the gray of the shirt. They almost have a distressed feel to them as well.
  • Bag– I love my Coach and Louis Vuitton bags, but lets be honest they just don’t hold a whole lot. Also it is kinda odd pulling out baby toys and diapers out of them. So on the days where I am more mommy duty, I like to just a grab a big backpack style bag. They hold a ton, so I can pack everything that I know I am going to need: toys, snacks, diapers, wipes, cups and well you know everything. Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite stories, so I am loving this bag. How fun!!

What about you guys, do you always get put together? Or do you have days where you might bum it too?
