30 for 30 Challenge: Thirteen

So I pretty much love this outfit, the colors and the comfort are what won me over. I love all shades of blue! Plus, I love this cute little owl pin I got at Target a few years ago.

The weather here in Florida lately has been making my challenge difficult, we've been in the 80's on some days and I have a bunch of cardigans and such in my items. I'm not complaining but it's making it a little more challenging to put together outfits that I won't potentially melt in.

30 for 30 Challenge: Nine & Happy Valentine's

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
I felt very festive in my heart patterned tights today but they kept slipping down, I think I pulled them up 20 times. I hate it when tights do that!

We had a great day, Syd had a cute 'tea party' at school and got the cutest little valentines from her classmates. I went to her class to take photos and eat with her but she had a meltdown when I left. I felt so bad; I could hear her crying when I was walking out. You fellow Mommies know what I'm talking about. The hubs and I went to dinner tonight which was delicious but of course when we got home Sydney was still awake. (Like an hour past her bedtime.) Ah, the joy of Grandma's, they never follow your instructions. I hope you all had a great day!

30 for 30 Challenge: Eight

This was my outfit on Sunday for a day of furniture shopping and eating lunch at Five Guys (love their burgers!). I love this bird print top from Anthro, it's so adorable and comfy at the same time. Perfect for a Moma on the go!

This week in Mommyland & Tales of Things you Love

Mommyland was featured on Effortless Anthropologie's, 'Tales of Things You Love' feature today. Please go check it out! What a wonderful idea that Roxy had, I have loved reading everyone's entries so far. Of course I talked about Sydney, she is all LOVE!

This picture perfectly describes what has been going on in our house this week. We have been stuck inside a lot due to all of the rain and this ballerina tutu (which is actually a swimsuit) has been Sydney's obsession lately. She says, 'my tutu' and tries to put it on all the time. My cousin actually brought her another one yesterday, except this one is bright blue. This is one of the things I love about having a little, frilly, poofy things. I think that as soon as she's old enough we will enroll her in dance or tumbling classes. She would love them!

p.s. I'm taking a break from the 30 for 30 Challenge just for today. Be back tomorrow with a new installment. Also, I was a bad remixer and bought some super cute shoes at Target tonight, I was worried they would be gone as all of the cute shoes seem to disappear quickly around here.

30 for 30 Challenge: Six & Seven

I think some of my co-workers think I'm a little kooky wearing all these crazy tights all the time. But I really liked this outfit, I thought it was fun and sassy.

Now this is a I ran out of clean clothes and I want to be comfy outfit. Plus I was having a scary bad hair day, hence the pulled back hair which is rare for me. I do love the color of this cardigan though and I got a lot of compliments on it.

30 for 30 Challenge: Five

I am really loving this outfit, especially my new (got before the challenge started) blue belt from Target. I can see myself using it a lot in the future. Oh Target, what would I do without you? Probably still have a significantly larger amount of money in my bank account but what fun is that! That's what happens when you live within a mile of a Target, you stop for bread and milk and you leave with about 10 things you didn't know you needed. Yes, I said needed. Who doesn't need a sparkly box of tissues and a dish towel with cupcakes on it?

30 for 30 Challenge: Four

I'm really not mad as it appears in this picture, the sun literally came out for 5 minutes today and it peeked it's head out and shines right in my face as we were taking pictures. This is the least angry looking of the 10 the hubby took. At least Syd looks adorable!

Hope everyone had a great weekend, the weather is still yucky and rainy here but I keep telling myself, 'at least it doesn't snow here'. Craziest moment of our weekend: Syd pooped on the floor! I took her out of the bath and she ran into her room before I could get a diaper on her and she came back to me saying that she pooped. She wasn't lying.....ah the things we do as parents.

30 for 30 Challenge: Three

Casual Friday! I was on the ball today and made sure that I took my picture before I walked around in the drizzly rain all day. (In case you're wondering, that's why my hair looks decent!) I have NEVER been a fan of yellow in the past but I'm digging this mustard color lately. I'm calling this my Fashionable Mustard Lumberjack outfit...hey I did cut a branch off of a tree today. Does that count?

Also, this cardigan made me want a hot dog all day. (Insert joke here.)

Frizzy hair courtesy of rainy day
Always feel awkward when I go to Target wearing red
Umbrella rendered useless because of wind blowing sideways

30 for 30 Challenge: One

Day one is in the bag! Woot! I really like this outfit except that when I got outside this morning, I realized that I had an abundance of blue on the lower half of my body. I kinda felt like Violet from Willy Wonka or a Smurf (Smurfette, of course). If I could do this one over I would choose to wear my gray tights to break up the blue a bit. I love this cardi and I always get lots of compliments when I wear it. Looking forward to seeing everyone else's first looks.
