Just Don't Do It

A+ for hitting the elliptical machine.
D- for doing it in denim.

Yes, those are denim capris. It's like the direct opposite of wicking material. Did I mention that it was about 99 degrees that day? Think maybe she just changed her shoes and popped back to the office after her workout? I would hate to be this woman's cubicle mate.

M.O.M. (Mom-item of the Moment)

Thanks to two friends who gently reminded me recently that I hadn't posted on here in OVER A MONTH (thank you Jenny and Kayla!) I am re-committing to my posting ways and even adding a new feature - the Mom-item of the Moment (or M.O.M.). I am always seeing things in stores or online that I feel would be great, unfrumpy additions to anyone's closets, but especially moms and most especially mine. While I can't always buy whatever I want, I can certainly blog about it, and maybe someone else will benefit! So, speaking of Madewell, here is my very first M.O.M. (I'll try to keep these relatively inexpensive, what with college to pay for someday and all...)

Cute, comfy, unique and less than $50. I love the burnout thing that's going on, I love the color that would mask most child-related emissions, and I really love the buttons on the sleeves. Take that, Beefy-T.

You can find this shirt here.

And by JC I mean, of course, J. Crew.

Sometimes while I'm standing in front of my closet, woefully uninspired, I ask myself, "What would J. Crew do?" Throw on a stained t-shirt and yoga pants? Never. It helps get me past those moments of weakness.

And yes, I know that most human beings (especially those of us with boobs) can't put seven layers on without looking like H.R. Pufnstuf. But it's inspirational to see how they style things, the unexpected combinations they put together, the cool and unstuffy jewelry they layer on. All I'm saying is, I'm listening.

And while we're on the subject, do you know about Madewell? It's J. Crew's newest line, a little more casual, a little less expensive - in other words, a little more mom. Yes PLEASE.
