Outfit Post!

I love these types of longer, flowy tank tops. It's a great length for leggings, to prevent feeling like you are wearing them as pants. It's from Forever 21 and I wore it before with jeans, and these same Calvin Klein booties. The blazer is from Express.

I am so happy it's Friday. Lately I've been feeling overwhelmed. I could use at least 3 more of me to split among all the things I need to get done. Being a perfectionist isn't helping me cut corners either {although, I prefer to call it detail oriented}. Sometimes I think I'll never feel done with anything. There is always more to do, more to learn, more to teach, more to experience...more to worry about. Plus, there is the guilt. The guilty feeling of being away from your children, even for a nanosecond.

But then, last night my son called me his best friend. In that moment my heart melted, the world stood still, and everything became alright again. It was like confirmation that while I wonder at times if I am doing things 'right', I am. Even though he might think that Superman and Batman have all the cool world saving powers, they really have nothing on my little Superhero man.

Happy Friday! I hope you have a great weekend!

  5. That's really cool about your son. He doesn't know you feel overwhelmed (which I also feel half the time)just that he loves his mom. I like this a lot. And your outfit works too. Enjoy your weekend!

  11. I love all those Forever 21 flowey tops. So fun and cheap! You have got to be the hottest mom ever! My goal is to dress as stylishly as you even when I have kids who I know will cause me to want to wear sweats to hide my saggy behind.

  14. Love the outfit, particularly the beading on the top! :) And I totally know what you mean about the long tops so your leggings don't feel like pants. Really hope you'll feel less overwhelmed and that you'll get a chance to relax soon ... you definitely deserve some downtime. And I think it's adorable that your son called you his best friend, so sweet! Hope you have a great weekend, Iva :)

  41. I feel the same way! I feel like I want to do everything just right and there's an endless list of things to do...I guess the only thing to do is just keep going down the list.
