Instagram Roundup: What I’ve Been Wearing Lately

I have been so MIA lately…I know. This season of life is so busy for us! Between Hurricane Irma disrupting life for two weeks, a long weekend in New York City, birthdays, Gator Football, PTA-momming, and everything the fall season brings our way, I’m so busy I find myself unable to breathe some days.

But I kind of like it like that. This month I dedicated five days to the girls’ school book fair, working early in the mornings and late into the night to write 75,000 words that week. Every weekend is pre-booked with a trip or an event, I’m spending two days before the month is out volunteering for festivals and fun at the twins’ school, hair appointments, new brakes, errands, Addison’s three dance classes and her advanced acro class, as well as her newfound passion for wanting to be at school 45 minutes early two mornings a week to participate in the running club; basically this month has 22 working days for me and 9 of them have been/will be spent not in my office working (that’s 135,000) words I need to find time to write outside of my normal office hours.

I’m lying. I really love it. I love being involved in the kids’ lives and being there for all the things they love to do. It makes me happy, even if my husband says it gives me crazy eyes from time to time (eye rolls and laughter go here).

But…that does mean the blog has taken a backseat this month. Sorry, y’all, but the kids come first! And that’s why I’m too lazy to come up with anything innovative and amazing for you today other than a not-so-sorry apology for being a little MIA and an Insta-outfit roundup. And a quick promise to do better.

I call this look my “I wish it was cool enough to get away with wearing this and not sweating, but it’s not,” look. Also – you will see this shirt in about 783793 different colors because I have them all. What can I say? When I find something I love, I get them all. This is why I have four kids.

Oh look…same jeans, same top, same bag, same glasses. I literally changed the color of the shirt and the shoes and called it a brand-new outfit. I call this ensemble, “Mom Life,” because ain’t nobody got time to get creative when you’re already running late.

Fun fact: This hotel mirror selfie came a mere 10 hours before we were pulling up to the airport at 4 am to catch a flight to NYC on my birthday and I suddenly remembered I left my bag in the hotel. We missed that flight. But my faux-leather leggings are literally the best thing about cooler weather, and my gold and fuschia Manolo Blaniks are two-years-old, but they never fail to elicit at least a half-dozen compliments when I wear them.

And I’ve had a few Instagram questions about my front door details in some of my OOTD posts:

Welcome Mat – Personalizationmall.com

Fall Wreath – Wayfair

Front Door Color – Front Door Red (Seriously. I did not make that up. But I cannot remember if it was from Lowes or Home Depot. But it was definitely one of those places).

Prada Marfa Mug – Etsy (just search for it once you’re logged in)

Necklace – I do wear the same necklace all the time, and it’s super old. It’s a Tiffany & Co. necklace my husband gifted me almost 10 years ago when I was pregnant with our first child. When we found out what we were having and chose her name (Addison), he bought the necklace with an “A” charm on it for me (don’t worry – now I say it stands for both Addison and Ava and I have the same charm with a “C” on my bracelet for Carter, Charlotte, and Craig so no one is left out!). It means all the everythings to me, and I only leave it off when I’m working out.
