Clothed with Grace: I Must Admit

I Must Admit

I must admit I wore this outfit a few weeks back, but I'll you what, these kick crops from Loft have been on constant rotation around here. I also have them in black and white. When I finally find a pant I love, it's time to stock up. The red and white are currently 40% off too!

I must admit part of reason I'm wearing pants and skirts so much is because nursing and dresses don't go together well. I have so many dresses I'm dying to wear, but it's just so awkward.

I must admit my taste in jewelry has been shifting. Most of my bold statement necklaces are going unworn and I'm more drawn to long pendant necklaces or more dainty short necklaces, but this necklace from Stella and Dot is kind of the best of both worlds. I like the glam look of it, but it's not crazy and overpowering. I've had it for a few years now and it's still one I love to wear. It's pricey, but it can be worn five ways, which is pretty sweet!

I must admit I am VERY excited to have the day off Friday. Hannah is going to daycare and I have school. I don't really have anything planned, but I'm totally ok with that!

I must admit that devotions have not been happening consistently in the mornings. Hannah must be going through a growth spurt because she's been up twice most nights for the last week and a half or so. I've asked the ladies at daycare to increase her ounces per bottle, and she's drinking it, but still up twice. I'm sooooo tired most of the time and pushing snooze twice when I really need to be getting up. I'm really hoping that I can try a bottle with cereal once at bedtime once Hannah has had her four month check, and I'm hoping that does the trick like it did for Grant. I miss starting my day with devotions and really want to get refocused!

I must admit it's been really nice having a few days at school to get caught up on grading while the kids take there state test. The piles were mounting!

I must admit that even though I was gone for two months, it seems like this school year is going on forever. I'm definitely feeling ready for summer break!

  4. I totally get why they're on repeat--they're awesome! I love that vibrant red colour!

  5. I loved this "I Must Admit" post and may do one myself on the blog. I love the red pants on you. I just bought two pairs of cropped pants from Loft that I love. And thay necklace is gorgeous as is the bracelet (I want them both). But like you I am more drawn to smaller necklaces and pendants, these days.

    Yeay for having Friday off!

  6. Right there with you--Caleb has been waking up to feed at night much more frequently lately. I'm a bit of a zombie as a result!

  7. Love this outfit! I really like the layered look with your tops.
