Faux Crocodile Shorts and Entertaining an Infant

I find it challenging to entertain an infant while trying to keep up with life.
I usually move Bucket from the exersaucer, to a blanket, to his high chair.
Then I start that "play routine" all over again.
The other day I was cooking dinner when Pigtails ran in.
"Baby fall sleep," she said.
I peeked out to see Bucket slumped over in a high chair with his toys. 
So far he's been the easiest of my three kiddos.

BROWN CROCODILE SHORTS - Rich and Skinny, $60
ORANGE CARIDGAN - Old Navy, $15
WHITE TANK - Bebe
BOOTIES - Forever 21
CUFF - Heavenly Treasures
NECKLACE - Made by my mom


"Monday's Inspiration" - Ashlee Simpson

For "Inspiration Monday" from Two Birds, I decided to go with my faux crocodile denim shorts.  I bought them on clearance at Norstrom Rack.  They were a little pricier than my F21 ones but I liked them a lot.  I switched up the color combo and wore them with an orange cardi and some brown booties.  The necklace is another one my mom made me.


Bucket squeezes in a nap while "playing"

I've been wearing a lot of shorts and tees lately.  With three kids it's a busy schedule with little time for sleeping and getting dressed.  Luckily my outfits have been loose and comfy, perfect for when I have to sneak in a quick nap!

***Thanks all for entering the eShakti giveaway.  I used random.org to choose a winner.  Congrats to Ashley!  Hope you have an upcoming bridal shower to wear it to!

You look good mama! :) I get comfy wearing shorts as well and like you I am a mama of two and so there isn't that much time for us to get all dolled up and everything. Just one quick dress up and good to go. :)

Cute little one by the way. Kids are just too darn cute and they pretty much sleep wherever they landed when they feel sleepy.

Those shorts are so great...love the subtle pattern. Love how you dress up shorts and a t for chasing the kiddos. Both of my boys fella asleep in their high chair or swing too!

Tara said...

I'd say that's definitely the order to have kids in, then, because I'm terrified that I had my easy one first, and I'm going to be in for a HUGE challenge when the second one comes along :)

Kim (A Very Sweet Blog) said...

Awww, he's a sweetheart! Great shorts. Love the red cardi and that necklace is fab.
