Toddlers and Transitions

#11 - DURHAM
SWEATER - Ann Taylor Loft
PINK TANK TOP - Express
DENIM SHORTS - Forever 21
SEQUIN INFINITY SCARF - Charlotte Russe
KNEE-HIGH SOCKS - Nordstrom
BLACK MOTORCYCLE BOOTS - BCBGeneration

I finally made it to Princess Sparkles' "Mommy and Me" class today.  I'll admit I was over an hour late, but still, I made it!  I haven't gone in over a month.  But everytime I do go, I really enjoy myself.  It's just, the thought of chasing both kids around is exhausting, especially now that Pigtails can walk and is very curious about everything she shouldn't be into.  Pigtails is in this transition stage where she's no longer an infant but not quite a little girl yet.  I guess the technical term for that is a toddler :)

Because I was running around all day going to preschool, class, a playdate, a lunch date, etc. (no really, I did all that, even missed a play group because I was too tired at the end of the day!), I had to dress comfortably.  Lately, it really feels in between seasons.  Technically it's Spring but the cold rainy days feel like winter (then the hot sunny days feel like summer!). 

This outfit is a tad schizophrenic.  The shorts and bright pink tank top are very spring, but the boots, knee-high socks and blingy sequin infinity scarf are winter-y.  This time of year is kind of like a toddler.  And I guess that makes this outfit a "transition" one!

Love the striped socks-they really tie the outfit together coordinating with sweater. As a famous little girl used to say, I don't get it--?Durham? Hear about bcbg sportswear blowout starting 3-30 @ Loehmann? You're one hardworking mama. You need an out of the home job so you can get some rest!

SO cute! I love this outfit so much. It makes me want to actually try wearing more than sweats again. Maybe when it's above 30 degrees.
