Light and Lacy

I love the clothes from Free People. They seem like the type of clothes I’d design if I designed clothes.

There’s a lot of lace and textures and light, flowing fabrics.  I like the femininity of it.

Anyway, I was browsing through some of their collection, and I wanted to highlight a few of my favorites here.  I see it as kind of a mental collection of the look I’m after.  It’s one of my missions, of late, to slowly replace the I’m-too-pregnant-too-care-what-I-look-like pieces still in my wardrobe with things that are a bit more bohemian.  A bit more relaxed, yet girly and beachy.  A bit more me.

I posted a few of my faves.  Let me know what you think – I’d love to hear some opinions!  :)

Momism #7: Laundry Issues

Momism 7

I know I’m not the only one who has experienced this.

Part of the reason I know this is, waaaaay back before I had kids, I used to live in an apartment with a shared laundry room.  I never ceased to be amazed at how often I’d go down to the basement and discover clothes in the washer or dryer that appeared as if they’d been there for days.  I never understood this.

Until I had kids.

Now this sort of thing happens more often than I’d like to admit.

True, as long as there are clean clothes to wear, laundry takes a back seat to, well, just about anything else… until I go to wash (and then dry) another load, and I have to casually turn the dryer back on to get rid of those multiple-day-old wrinkles.

No one will ever know…

Are the 80s Back?

I still think it’s surreal when I walk through the stores and see girls clothes on display that look like they came right out of the 1980s.

For example:

Okay, her hair is great.  That’s not 80s hair.  But the dress?  Add a little shoulder jacket and that could have been worn to any of my school dances!

And these outfits from Kmart remind me of my childhood … they even have 80s/90s hats!

And, I mean, is it just me, or did JCPenny just discover a couple boxes of 30-year-old sweaters??

Is it just me?  Or have you noticed the trend, too?

Seriously, people.  Share.
