No Time

Once again, I thought I would have time to write some meaningful content to go with this outfit post, but you guys, I have been so busy! We had parent teacher conferences last night until 8:00, and there was no way my brain had anything inspirational left in it after that. So, here's a simple outfit for you again.

My one thought for you to take away today is to think about the expectations you put on yourself. I know I have pretty high ones for myself. I think I can be super mom, super teacher, super wife, and super blogger all at the same time. It's not happening. No one else put these expectations on me, I did it myself. I'm realizing sometime you just need to let the things that aren't as important go, and focus on what really matters. Hope you all have a great day!

I've had this dress for years, but it's remained a favorite. My clare cardigan's remain by favorite for dressing up, and this one is no exception. Although, I' still able to wear wedges, I am on the hunt for a new nude heel, anyone have recommendations for a comfortable pair with a heel height that won't kill me?


  1. I think you're super because you can recognize that you can't do it all and you know what's important to put first :) I don't know how you balance it all mom and sister are teachers and it's crazy how much work teachers do outside of school hours. Teachers definitely don't get enough credit! Anyways, your outfit is super cute!

  2. As moms we always place high expectations on ourselves. In addition we are women and often find ourselves looking at everyone else around us and thinking, "Why aren't I keeping up?" But the truth of the matter is we only need to be looking at our situation and making the best choices we can for ourselves and out families. That may mean, letting go of some of those activities. You are doing a great job, Ginny and I don't know how you do as much as you do! Love your style and your honesty. Thanks for sharing. - Amy
