This is a diary of things that interest me at thirty: my kid, my job, and my life.

Inspiration Monday (or Tuesday)- Blue Blazers
I'm not sure if I agree with her sleeves being pulled over her hands, but this is a comfortable look.
I wore this on Sunday so that I could run (very quickly) to the mall to find something to wear for our family photo shoot that was taking place later that day. I only had about an hour and a half, so I reached for my thrifted Ralph Lauren blazer, jeans, gray cotton tee, and Toms (I LOVE my Toms).
I wore the blazer again on Monday but with a pair of "shorts" (they're like slacks that stop at my knees). I am so proud to be able to wear these shorts again! They didn't fit for a while after I gained all of my post-baby weight (yes, I was heavier several months after having Charlie than I was immediately after giving birth). And... I finally found a way to wear them that doesn't make me look shorter than I am... the length of these shorts can literally make me look like am elf. I don't think I realized how much they dwarf me until I saw Clinton (on What Not to Wear) talking to a woman about how cropped pants make everyone look shorter. I took that bit of advice as me needing to get rid of anything that isn't floor length (while wearing platforms).
I also got Charlie in on the fun! He was trying on his family photo outfit which just so happened to include a navy sweater.
