But that is making my acid extra-swirly, so let’s talk about something fun:
I can’t decide exactly what to wear. I mean I narrowed it down to a few outfits all in the same color palette to minimize the shoes that I need to pack.
Oh, did mention I’m only doing a carry on? A certain airline that shall remain nameless (hint: they took over North West) decided to put our bags on a different flight for weight reasons. Twice. In a row. Can you believe that?! (And for the record, our bags were NOT fat; they were just full of necessities). So I am done with the checking of the bags conversations (just like Ben Stiller in Meet the Parents). Before I ask for your opinion on my outfits choices, take a second to answer my Skinny Scoop Survey about carry-on bags versus checked bags:
Before the fashion show begins, I would like to preface it with the following points:
- I want to thank my photographer (my mom) who did not have an easy time snapping the pictures without The Babes sneaking in since they were running around like monkeys.
- I had to fit this *very* informal photo shoot in after my morning walk and physical therapy appointment (which is another post altogether). So I am essentially wearing no makeup and my hair is a mess. (The good news is, since these pictures were taken, I got my roots taken care of).
- My set design does include a laundry basket, an assortment of toys, and The Babes. Obviously.
- I want to be clear that I did not do my hair and makeup. Just a *gentle* reminder.
Tell me what you think of the outfits in the comments section.
|Here's this outfit with a short sleeves shrug|

shrug with a flower-y detail
|Here's the same look with a different necklace|
|I was thinking of making this a conference |
outfit with the casual shoes. . .
what do you think?
|Or maybe add some fancy shoes and make it|
a party dress? I. Don't. Know.
|Party dress for sure, but what do |
you think of the necklace? Too casual?
|I thought this might be too casual for |
the conference, but maybe it's OK?
|Here's the same outfit without the shrug.|
Maybe a travel outfit?
|Travel outfit or conference outfit?|
|Here's the same look without the shrug.|
|Or maybe a short sleeve shrug? |
I would love to have a personal stylist.
If you made it this far, thanks for playing! You don't believe that I just *might* be overthinking this thing just a tad, do you? Yeah, me neither. I mean, I am home all day with my kids. Anything will look stepped up next to my kahki shorts and T-shirt, right?
Please, please give me your input. I'll be sure to take lots of pictures of my outfits at the conference!
Have a great week!
