Neon Yellow and a Flexible Sleeper

Luckily for me, Bucket is a flexible sleeper.
He often has to fall asleep on the go or has to be roused in the middle of a nap.
Sometimes his naps are in the car, the stroller, a wagon or the closet.
He's even fallen asleep on a blanket in the middle of the floor during a party.
This would never have happened with Princess Sparkles.
But with each kid I've gotten more lax.

NEON YELLOW TOP - Splendid (via Loehmanns)
DENIM CAPRIS - American Eagle (hand-me-down)
COLORFUL WEDGES - Cynthia Vincent for Target
BRACELETS - T & J (giveaway), Heavenly Treasures (party favor)

Sophia Vergara - Monday's Inspiration

Here's my outfit for "Inspiration Monday" from Two Birds.  It's a Splendid neon yellow top with denim capris and my favorite Cynthia Vincent for Target wedges.  I'll admit I did have to change into shorts later because it got so hot!  The T & J aqua bracelet I won from a "Monday Mingle" giveaway, and the Heavenly Treasures beaded bracelet I got as a party favor at a tea a few weeks ago.

I realize I so rarely wear regular denim.  Probably because I'm so obsessed with bright colored skinnies and cut-offs.  But I like jeans, they're comfy and extremely versatile, kind of like a third child!

Love the bright top and those great bracelets. I am pretty lucky my boys can sleep anywhere. Jack fell asleep riding his bike once!!

That photo of the kids sleeping together is SO adorable! I worry about this next kid and the whole "nap schedule" thing. It is nice to hear that Bucket has been so easygoing with that! I love your bright yellow top. I have a similar shirt but not such a cool color. Now I want one in neon! And those shoes are amazing!

Neon! So perfect for this summer. Although personally I'm loving the softer shade on Sophia.

Like Bucket, I used to be able to nap anywhere too--I remember falling asleep in the middle of a crowded building between classes in college! Quite a skill :) Anyway, I LOVE that adorable neon top, it looks great with those wedges too!
