glimpse//a sunday afternoon

The boys and pup are napping on the bed and I'm wondering the house, not quite sure what to do with these rare moments of silent alone time. I should probably be cleaning up or cooking dinner. That would be the prudent thing to do with these cherished hands-free moments, but instead I will walk around admiring the quiet beauty of the house and my favorite sleeping creatures. Each one of them drive me crazy in their own endearing way, but oh how I love them. I'm still trying to figure out this new mom life. I assume that will forever continue--does anyone ever really figure it out? But mostly it is hard and good. I think it is very best when that fat little fairy is asleep, but am quickly reminded that isn't so, when I walk into the room and his happy eyes meet mine. He is all the better fresh from a nap.

If you don't find me in my trusty madewell high-risers + black and white striped tee combo, then you'll likely find me in a variety of this--a knotted tee, jersey stretch pencil skirt and my fawn design diaper bag. I like to wear this on days when I know I'm going to be running a lot of errands, so I want to stay as cool as possible and don't have to worry about crawling around on the ground all day (because pencil skirts aren't very conducive to ground crawling--believe me, i've been there and done that). Being in a skirt and a fun pair of shoes makes me feel like i've got it more together than i do--and faking it is the first step to making it, right? ha!

The fawn bag is, of course, awesome because it can have a corss over strap, but the backpack mode is really where it's at! I have one in brown and in black and they're just fab!

40+ Striped Tees for Under $50

If you follow me on instagram, you saw that I recently came forth with my biggest clothing addiction--striped tees (generally black and white stripes, but sometimes i make an exception). This past week alone I wore a different black and white striped tee 4 out of the 7 days and Simon was in stripes 5 out of 7...but like I said, it's only a problem if you think it's a problem... Even with a closet bursting in horizontals, I still find myself constantly on the search for the perfect one, so here are some favorites I've found this week.
