So anyways, we went to storytime at the library this morning and it went pretty well...Gabriel played with a few other kids, which is pretty big for us because Wednesday at the library are the only interaction he gets with other kids period. I want to change that...but it's hard. We live so far away from everyone and I don't really know anybody in our area. I also don't have any family in-state that have children around his age, which sucks. Pretty much the only kid who keeps him in line is his Uncle, my brother, who is 19!! He teases him and aggravates him and treats him like a little brother. So when Gabriel plays with the kids at the library and does well it makes me pretty happy. He ended up playing so hard with this one bigger kid playing pirates and jumping on the library's bean bag chairs that he lost a shoe. And didn't notice.
Without further ado, here is my outfit of the day:
I keep reading articles in fashion magazine talking about 'mixing in menswear pieces'. This plaid shirt is actually my Dad's...I have been raiding the men in my life's closets lately to see if there are any old clothes of theirs that I can sew to make something different. I didn't do anything to this, because it's actually the perfect fit to wear with leggings. Button-downs are great to borrow/steal from your husbands/boyfriends/fathers/brothers, because you can do so much with them. They look great if you make sure that the rest of your outfit is fashionable, to avoid looking...uh...like you're playing for the other team. I mixed this shirt with my sweatpant leggings, heeled booties, and a statement necklace. I also cinched it with a belt. On that note, I find belts to be really expensive, and I got this one at forever21. I LOVE forever21 for belts, because they have a ton, and they are super cheap.
Happy Hump Day!!
