I hate to harp on the whole "Operation Summer of Sexy Mom" thing, but since we just got back from a week in Florida, I feel the need to share what I packed. (Yes, be prepared to see more of these outfits actually on me in upcoming posts about what we actually did on our trip.) I made a conscious effort to pick out outfits that were more put together than I normally would have packed. That meant, no random t-shirts with gnomes on them. And since we were traveling, I had to be mindful of my shoes as well. I *hate* to take too many shoes when we travel.
Let's get into the nitty gritty....
Banana Republic shirt, Vineyard Vines shorts
Blouse from a local boutique, J.Crew chino shorts (my fave!)
LOFT blouse, J.Crew shorts
Boden tee, J.Crew shorts
Gap tee, J.Crew shorts
Old Navy blouse, Lily Pulitzer shorts
Lily Pulitzer tank, J. Crew shorts
It felt really good to be more "put together" than usual. (I did take a necklace for each outfit, but forgot to take pics when I was packing!) I didn't feel schlumpy or like I could embarass my husband and daughter with my clothes. It was a strange feeling. But a good one! One I definitely hope to continue from now on!
Note: You seriously need to go over to J.Crew Factory and snatch up these shorts! (Amongst other things.) The beauty is that you don't have to go to an actual outlet, but can order online! And they run sales all the time - like right now, a lot of stuff is 50% off! As for the shorts, I always do the 3" chino and they're selling for $34 right now, which you can't beat for the quality! Especially with all the awesome colors they have. I also own aqua and khaki and am dying over the "dark papaya" and "festival blue" colors they have now. Dammit...I shouldn't have clicked on my own link because now I need to go shop!
