Layers: Long Over Long and "Quiet" TV Time

"Does anyone know where the TV remote is?"
I asked but didn't expect the girls to know.
"Momma, come he-ya, come he-ya,"
Pigtails shouted as she ran to my bedroom.
Guess the girl was desperate to watch a show...
(please don't judge, my girls have actually learned stuff
AND it's kept me from going completely insane).

STRIPED SKIRT - Old Navy, $15
BROWN TOP - Gap Maternity (hand-me-down)
NAVY CARDIGAN - Express, $15
NUDE BALLET FLATS - Me Too, $8 (thrifted)

Today I'm linking up to "Fashion Challenge: Layer Up," hosted by Megan Mae Daily and Casual Chic Kiki.  They always come up with something really creative!  This is actually tomorrow's challenge, "long over long" (today was "cropped over long" but the cropped wasn't looking great with my pregnant belly hanging out), so I decided to go with a maxi skirt from Old Navy and a long cardigan.  I also wore a long necklace for extra credit.  The Me Too flats are leather and a thrifted treasure I got from GW!

My TV junkies having some "quiet time" at Fair Isle's house

I've had a long day and it's still early!  Princess Sparkles had a dentist appointment that didn't go so well (and I cried in front of everyone - seriously embarrassing).  Then Pigtails decided to take off her own poopy diaper...again.  Maybe I'm just pregnant and tired.  Really tired.  I think I need to throw on some sweats, turn on the TV and veg myself!

Oh no, you cried! I totally can relate! Well hopefully you're vegging now and put that cute maxi skirt someplace safe because I want to see you wear it again when you're post baby!

I love the print of that maxi skirt- it almost looks like Missoni! Growing up my sister and I were allowed 30 mins of tv a day- as a stay-at-home Mum, I'm sure it's what kept my Mum sane too!

Fede said...

the remote is always a problem in the houses!
you look so lovely

aki! said...

Ohh. The pictures you take of your girls show them as so cute!

I can imagine that they'd be a handful though.

Melissa said...

I don't know if I knew you were pregnant! Wow, I've been gone too long. You are stunning!

I'm sorry the dentist didn't go so well, and the poopy diaper came off...it's a season. It always gets better and all you can do is handle it the best way possible for YOU. Don't worry about what anyone else thinks. You're an awesome mom. End of story. :)


oh claire! I really believe your handling your pregnancy well! :) can't wait for your third! again, be safe! :)

Keely said...

Oh, you're looking adorable! Here's to relaxing after a long day.
