The Adventure Starts Here: Summer "Mommy" Style

Summer "Mommy" Style

Today I'm sharing a sampling of my wardrobe from the past four weeks.  Going through these photos, I realized a few things.  First, I wear a lot of black!  I never really thought I had a problem of not having color in my wardrobe, but this post would suggest otherwise.  And second, I tend to wear the same earringssunglasses, and sandals almost every single day!

So let's start with my black and white outfits...

Back to school clothes shopping for Noah.

Lunch and errands with my mom.  The white napkin at Cheesecake Factory did a number on my black dress!

A 4 year old birthday party.  I actually wore different sandals... alert the media!

Running errands, including a trip to the dentist with Noah. 

And once again, Noah had to get in on the action!  Our stripe game is strong ;)

Noah's pajamas (other colors) | camera remote 

With all that black and white, it was time to add some color.

Lowes Build & Grow.

And then there are times when I go for comfort and opt against doing my hair...

Running errands in 110 degrees after a day at the pool.  I tried to wear as little as possible while Noah opted for pants.  I do not know how he stood wearing pants in that heat!

similar metallic sandals | cross-body (other colors) | sunglasses 
Noah's camo shirt (in blue) and pantssandals  

Dropping my car off to be fixed... and then spending the day at home.

The past few weeks, we've spent a lot of days at the beach or pool.  Since I only have a few swimsuits and coverups, sharing them over and over again would get rather boring. Here's a sample of how you'll find me most days... with a hat and sunnies or wet from the pool hair!

  1. I am loving all the black and white friend. Are those regular go to colors for you?! Every time I see that plaid Loft shirt I swoon a bit. I should see if they still have it and just suck it up. I also love that kimono too!

  2. Love all that black & white on you! The gingham top is my fav!

  3. I'm a sucker for black and white! So, I love all of these! But, I think my favorite is the black and white maxi shirt with the pink necklace. It's the perfect pop of color!

  4. Lots of black and white! That tankini is cute!

  5. I wore a black dress yesterday and someone commented that I wear a lot of black lol. It's true but I love it because it's so flattering and versatile. I love your outfits!

  6. Nothing wrong with keeping it classic with black and white! Bonus points for all the stripes ;) ADORE your kimono!!
