Neon, Stripes, Light Wash Denim and a Big Sister

"You're not my mom anymore,"
Princess Sparkles informed me.
I felt a little sad until she explained,
"You're my big sister because you're not that old."

PURPLE AND YELLOW STRIPED TOP - Loft
LAVENDER CUT OFFS - Hot Kiss (via Marshalls)
SPIKED EARRINGS - 99 Cent Depot
YELLOW KHAKI WEDGES - Old Navy

MULTI-PRINT DRESS - Scrapbook
DENIM JACKET - Free People
MINT FEDORA - Eugenia Kim for Target
BLACK WEDGE BOOTIES - Target

Here are a few outfits from the week.  I've been wearing shorts a lot since it's been hot.  I have a handful of colorful cut offs I like wearing.  I was excited when this striped top I got on clearance at the Loft for $10 matched with my purple shorts.  I'm linking this up to "Inspiration Monday" from Two Birds.  The second outfit I wore to Princess Sparkles' kindergarten promotion.  I paired it with the light wash denim jacket I got from Loehmanns and a fedora from Target.

Sparkles models her creative head piece.

I love wearing cut offs.  But now that I'm a mom, I worry if it's okay for me to still wear my short shorts.  I don't want to be inappropriate or the mom who wears things she probably shouldn't.  At least Sparkles thinks I'm not that old... yet.

Two cute outfits! The yellow and purple striped top is great - what an eye-catching color combo! The fedora and booties really add some edge to your dress and jacket.

haha, i still wear my shorts...as long as my cheeks aren't hanging out the back! but i have made some modifications...like if they are on the shorter side, i make sure they are loose and not tight.

i love the first outfit. the top goes perfectly with the shorts!
