Zoe Clothing Co and a Burgundy Floppy Hat

GRAPHIC TOP - Zoe Clothing Co (exact)
DENIM LEGGINGS - Macys
FLORAL CUFF - GS Lillian
EARRINGS - Jewelry Party
FLOPPY HAT - Forever 21
WEDGE BOOTS - Steve Madden

It's funny how kids ignore you when you ask them to do something (i.e. "pick up your toys,""go to bed") until you talk about something they want (i.e. chocolate chip cookies or watching TV).  Although many times I think Princess Sparkles is not paying attention to my conversation with Camouflage in the car until later when she asks me details about it.  I realize I really have to watch what I say around my kids because they hear EVERYTHING (at least what they're not supposed to)!!!

Minnie Mouse ears  help
Sparkles hear everything!
I recently received this awesome new shirt courtesy of Zoe Clothing Co.  Zoe makes super stylish, comfy Christian attire that anyone can wear.  I love this shirt because it's NOT maternity but works well with the belly.  It'll also be great after I give birth!  I decided to keep it simple (since it's just such a fab shirt) and pair it with my denim leggings (I know, so 2009, but they're extremely comfy for my pregnant self!), knee high boots and my burgundy floppy hat from Forever 21 (I'm obsessed with their hats!!!)

Anyway, the thing I love about Zoe's shirts is even though they have an encouraging message, they aren't in your face.  Like this shirt, the graphic is a subtle reminder to be "wise as serpents and innocent as doves."  Isn't that cool?!  It's the kind of message even Princess Sparkles might pay attention to!

You look great in that floppy hat! And it's funny how kids will absorb their surroundings when you least expect it. But yes, the quote on your shirt--talk about inspiring! Have a wonderful day!

another great outfit, I'm amazed how you seem to casually throw on any outfit and accessories and always look so fabulous. The hat looks so stylish on you, I love the color! It matches the design on your top. You're such an expert on color co-ordination. The clutch is fabulous too

You just get more adorable everytime you post a new photo! This shirt and leggings combo looks great, and that floppy hat is gorgeous! My kids are the same way, you think they're not listening, but they are. Like little sponges! Heather

Kids totally hear WAY MORE than you would think! I learn that all the time. You look adorable in this tee and the floppy hat!

Wait till Princess Sparkles goes to kindergarten and repeats what she hears on show and tell! Love the hat on you and the colors of the tunic. Also, that's a really nice cuff.

Adorable! Love the hat Claire! Just tell everyone you're wearing jeggings {not leggings} and you'll be SO 2011, lol.

Your floppy hat looks great, and I think that top is cute.

Tiffany said...

Oh, that shirt is so pretty! I love it!

And yes, those kids! The other day, I was quietly talking to the Hubs about the kids, when Little Guy interrupted and said, "Momma, are you talking about US?" lol

Such an adorable outfit! I have to say that the red hat is my favorite part of the entire look. But the graphic tee is wonderful as well! It really makes for a casual, chic outfit! Hope all is going well - still can't get over how adorable you look with a baby bump!

Sunny & Star said...

Such a cute outfit. I absolutely love your hat. It is so fun and chic. And the color is amazing.

Mommyblogger said...

You aren't kidding, kids are like sponges! I know my 12 year old absorbs every word of every "adult" conversation I try to have!

LOVE this outfit. That shirt looks amazing on you. Has anyone ever told you just how cute you look in floppy hats? If not, they should!!!

Kara said...

Okay, so when I first saw your photos, I was like, wow, that whole look is SUPER CUTE!! Then I read your post and I love it even more! I have got to check out that site. It reminds me of a store in "my" mall in Virginia Beach called C28 ( http://www.c28.com/ ). They had some items like that, subtle, but smart:-) I bought a burgundy floppy hat from Target a couple weeks ago, but ended up returning it a few days later, because I didn't think I would have anywhere to wear it (not like me at all!). Now i'm totally regretting the return!

that hat is so adorable!

I am so nervous about having kids because they do hear everything you say and they pick up on everything you see and do and copy it! I have the worst potty mouth and curse so much and I want/need to stop!! ahhh

Megan Mae said...

A beautiful tee with a well integrated message. It's very stylish, and I adoooore that hat.

aki! said...

You know how rare it is for a simple t-shirt to be eyecatching? I see a ton of shirts with logos, sayings, pictures on them but it's hard to find something that you like. ...Or rather, I find it hard.

Francesca R said...

Look at oricess sparkles!!! And look at you! You are glowing claire! I love the t shirt and the hat!!

Bravoe Runway said...

Oooo is that the hat? I love it on you, the colour is amazing and actually that is different from the one I got! I love anything that is understated....in your face is really not my cup of tea! Sparkles as always...is adorable as ever!

Your tshirt is awesome, I love that it has a christian message, but only the wearer and a few observant people would realise it! :)

Target had a similar floppy hat in that color, and I was thisclose to buying one for myself. Doesn't that shock you that we'd be drawn to the same pieces? ;)

That shirt really is gorgeous...and I love, love, love the subtle but powerful message!

Kezzie said...

Love the hat! You really suit it!
BTW, where are YOUR minnie mouse ears?

Mrs. J said...

Cool shirt I really like the graphics on it. Denim legging and skinny jeans are the same thing to me. You look great so it doesn't matter.

Love the hat! I think I'll have to center my next post around my brown one.
