Mom On the Go

Posted on: September 26, 2013

A simple Mom on the Go Formula…

A printed shirt , straight leg jeans and comfortable flats

Linking up with Vodka Infused Lemonade

I completely forgot to do my Pinterest Inspiration look this week, but please stop by for the

Pinned it and Did It Link Up to see those who are participating this week…

There are so many ways to take that same formula and re-work it for a variety of looks.  Later as temps get colder layering offers even more options.   There are so many color ways, so many prints, so many awesome flats… It never has to get boring.

This entire outfit works due to the Jones New York top I thirfted.  I love that it isn’t a plain t-shirt with the gathered neckline, finished and gathered cuffs and again the shoulderline with gathers…   It also has plenty of stretch!  

My purse, shoes and belt were all thrifted from Goodwill as well.

Can you believe that I went without black jeans all last year????

I love these Bandolino’s from BJ’s and wished I had gotten another color…

If you are a regular reader, did you notice my tucked in shirt? 

Not something I do too often…..

Dear Readers,  It’s tough depending on a 100 % commission job…. There is no consistency and when things are good it’s great,but being careful to stock some in savings is key… A bad first quarter,,,. a week’s vacation last month, a bad start in September, a forced 8 days off  (he tried self generating business, but had no luck..) and two weeks with  no paycheck is enough  to  put a strain on any family… Just praying this turns around quickly , as it can  happen that way…. So many upcoming expenses with a senior in high school and upcoming college applications.

Gratitude 

I am grateful that I didn’t gain any weight this week with the stress I’ve been under.

I am grateful that my husband is so calm natured to offset my anxiety.

I am grateful that my Senior in high school is having such a great start and is more focused this year.

I am grateful that he loves his classes and comes home daily ,telling me he has learned more this first few weeks, than ever before.  ( He is loving marketing, sports anatomy , physics and his college english class)  

I am grateful to be a stay at home mother, who is there when he gets home every day (something all the kids valued in High School)

Life is so uncertain. Saving is such the key, best wishes for a brighter, happier tomorrow. You are rocking the tucked in look. Found you through Agnes’s link up.

I hope things work out with everything! You should tuck in your shirt more often. This looks fabulous and it shows off your trim figure!

aaghh will I ever get over this body dysmorphia??? still don’t see it trim… working on it!

A cute outfit. Looks comfortable, yet stylish and well put-together. I hope things turn around for you soon. You truly are blessed in so many ways. It’s something you can focus on in the meantime.

Thank you and I do focus more on what is working than what is not most days… When it comes to making sure my chidren get to college after all my years of preaching, that amps things up some… Then again that’s a mom thing in general, I think..

Perfect mom on the go outfit. Love it!!!!!!

Thank you so much for linking up this week. See you next Thursday.

Agi:)
