What I Wore Wednesday - Funny Story

Shirt: Ann Taylor Loft (Thrifted)
Jeans: Eddie Bauer Outlet
Shoes: 6pm.com
Bracelet: Target

I wore this one day last week, when taking my Little Miss to the doctor's office for her well visit.

Picture this: I'm standing in the office with the Little Missy on my hip, attempting to listen as the doctor tells me things about a one-year old I already know. All the while, my Little Man is peppering me with "Mom, mom, mom!" every 3.5 seconds.  I'm holding up my finger to him, which he knows means, "Just one second."  Well, apparently, I'm taking too long to award him with my undivided attention because all of a sudden, out of nowhere, he launched all 38 pounds of his little self right into my legs and pulled with all his might. Just like that, I teetered (on my high heels) to the right and stumbled to the left and so very nearly went tumbling to the floor. Somehow I managed to catch myself and recover with a tiny bit of dignity still intact.  The doctor just laughed and said, "Well, I've never had that happen before!" 


Oh, yeah, this is me, just chillin' on the floor of the conference room, while taking a call on my cell phone. <insert sarcasm> Uh-huh, I do that all the time...

And one last thing, go check out my sweet friend's new blog! Moments in Fashion.  She's a fellow mom to a sweet little girl and is getting her groove back! =)

Linking up today with Spunky Chateau and her Thursdays are for Thrifters Link Party!

little man of great strength. I like that androgynous look, yet at the same time the soft color of the shirt and heels add a touch of femininity.

Can I just tell you I'm so glad that you teeter in your heels sometimes b/c I do not know how women walk in them like superstars all the time. :) You look adorable though and I'm glad you clarified that top is thrifted b/c I was about to run out to Loft to snag one!

Work it girl! You are sooo beautiful!
I think your little man's gonna be a line-backer! ;0)

Tara said...

Wait, you're saying you don't generally sit on the floor to take calls like that? But, but...it looks so natural!

I love that top...the colors are gorgeous :)
