    Happy Friday, friends! I hope you’ve all had an amazing week! I am SO looking forward to the weekend because it’s supposed to be in the 60s. In February. In Chicago. That’s just crazy. It’s practically summer! I predict our weekend is going to include a walk to the park and definitely some ice cream. πŸ™‚

    So the other day, Olivia and I went to the Motherland aka Target and as soon as we walk in, this exchange happened:

    Olivia: Oh Target!

    Me: Yes, we’re at Target!

    Olivia: We’re hoooommee!

    Hahahaha! You guys, I could not stop laughing. Is she my kid or what?! It reminded me of when I was little and my mom would drag me to Walmart all. The. Time. And we would pull up to the store and I’d say, “Mooommmmm, not Walmart again!” 

    Anyways, today I wanted to share my favorite casual outfit with you or as I call it: my momiform. I am definitely not one of those moms that can rock jeans, heels, and a full face of makeup to play dates but I do like to look put together. I take Olivia to the library, gymnastics, and music class every week and both of those involve a lot of moving around and sitting on the floor, so leggings are usually my go-to for comfort. I throw on a shirt that covers the tush, a warm vest, my favorite leopard scarf, and I’m good to go.

    And I need to wear comfy shoes. My favorite casual/comfy shoes have always been these Converse until the other day when I bought these rose gold Adidas. I am OBSESSED with them. They are so comfortable, go with everything, and are really in style right now. You know that section in style magazines that says, “Everything old is new again”? That’s what these Adidas are. I had these exact same shoes but with baby blue (yes, BABY BLUE) stripes when I was in 8th grade. Yikes! Did any of you rock these during junior high?? (Edit: I sized down one whole size because these run really big. I usually wear a 6.5 and I bought a 5.5)

    By the way, I just read this entire post and realized it has zero point and kinda sounds like the inner workings of my mind, so high five if you’ve made it this far. πŸ™‚

    Have the best weekend!

    XO,
