Leather Peplum, Green Stripes and a Preschooler

"Don't worry, Mommy, I'll come back for you."
Pigtails let me know.
I've been getting sentimental with Pigtails starting preschool soon.
"It's okay, Mommy.  It's okay."
Then Pigtails held out her hand.
"Here, kiss my hand."

BLACK PEPLUM - New York and Co.
BRACELET - iSanctuary

GREEN STRIPED SHIRT - Forever 21 (swapped)
BRACELET - Carpe Diem

I wore this black peplum with the pleated zebra skirt to church.  I bought this peplum a while back before they had so many inexpensive choices.  I like that it has pleather and fabric so it's stretchy and comfy.  The green outfit was kinda a fun experiment, pairing stripes with ikat.  I got the shorts and the Minnetonka knock-offs both from Target for less than $10 each.

Pigtails and her unique way of wearing sunglasses

I changed up my uniform a little this week, forgoing the booties, cut offs and cardigans.  I like mixing it up with a skirt and peplum, or some ikat and stripes.  But don't worry, ankle booties, I'll come back for you...

Aw!!! It's so much harder for mommies than for kiddos when they start school. Good for her for having compassion and independence! Love that peplum!

Oh, I loved what she said! Sooo sweet, and you a bit sentimental, which absolutely normal, but she was so strong, so self-conscious and sweet all at the same time! I am impressed (I looove children!) You all look, as usual, so beautiful and I love the peplum! denisesplanet com

Hey Claire! Haven't "seen" you in a while. Still as stylish as ever. We share a very similar striped green top- I love it! The girls are getting so big. I know I haven't stopped by in a while. -Jessica L
