I’ve noticed myself moving away from the brighter colors lately and sticking to a palette of black, white, denim and gray. Throw in some Army green and I think I could be happy forever in a wardrobe made up of only those colors. I could say that I was going for a monochromatic outfit today by pairing this cardi and basic tee, but really this outfit was all about the shoes- it may be 90 degrees outside, but I am still taking any chance I get to wear them. I was just trying to match my shoes.
I wore this last week to a Summer movie with the kids and then to speak at youth night our church. My Mom and I, along with one other woman from church, were invited to sit as a panel of moms for the teenage age girls to ask questions to. We represented different stages in motherhood which was apparent when my mom picked me up and was dressed all cute in black pants, flat sandals, a bright tee and fun jewelry. Then there was me with my edgy hair, wedge sneakers and dressed in grey and black. The first thing she said was, “Well, we look like different kinds of moms don’t we?” We laughed and the night went great. It was really fun to answer questions and give my perspective on being a mom of three at 27. I maintain that it is for sure the hardest thing I have ever done, but I am learning more from it than I would from anything else I could be doing with my life right now. It is making me a better person and certainly bringing me joy that can be had no other way. I am so grateful to a mom. Maybe even a cool mom.
