Sometimes I find pictures on Pinterest that look like clothing that I already have in my closet and use those photos as my inspiration for a blog post. And sometimes (like today) it’s the opposite – I wear an outfit and then reverse search for a somewhat similar picture. (I don’t ever buy clothes to complete inspiration photos unless it was something that I would have already purchased if the blog didn’t exist.) In this case I couldn’t find anything close when I searched combinations of “navy tunic grey pants leopard” so inspiration picture isn’t as exact of an outfit as I normally use. But the part that struck me as similar on Lauren is navy top with a belted waist. Close enough for me! 🙂
Second day in a row that I’m showered, hair blow-dried and I have makeup on! Plus I really like today’s outfit. Look at me being a “normal functioning part of society*” instead of a hermit milk factory for a tiny human. 🙂
*UPDATE* – Oops. I didn’t mean to infer in the above statement that stay at home moms aren’t normal functioning parts of society. I really meant I am getting back to my own personal pre-baby “normal” – doing a job every day that I enjoy and feel contributes in some part to the world as a whole. I didn’t mean to say that being at home raising very important tiny humans to be successful grown up humans doesn’t also do that. It totally does. I was just trying to make light of how dramatically my life changed after baby and is now changing again as I go back to work and how many brain is trying to reconcile those two parts of who I am now. I’m sorry if it sounded derogatory or dismissive! I didn’t mean for it to!
