Happy Friday! I used to think this type of clothes were just a typical "Momiform" but then I noticed our babysitter who is so cute and stylish wearing all this cute athletic wear to babysit. Then she came with us to Seattle and was sporting once again the cutest athleisure wear. So when we got a little bit of away time from the kids (thanks Jay for babysitting) she went shopping with me. Nothing makes you feel more old (I'm 33) than shopping with an 18 year old. I thought I was in on the newest trends but I wasn't! So when SHE spotted this pull over at Zara and they didn't have her size I figured I could try it on....
Look Maddie Am I Doing It Right?
I picked out a few other track jackets to wear with leggings I tried one on that I thought was cute but she told me I looked like a "green olive"... I think that wasn't a compliment. I must tell you Mom's if you can grab a 16-23 year old to go shopping with you it is so fun and yet it makes you feel SOOO old. Style among the "youngster" is so causal these days and I love it. I actually texted her during the bachelor finale asking if combat books with basically a Herve Leger dress was in style, yet stuff just seems a little too causal . After picking out this jacket at Zara (HERE) we popped over to Nordstrom to the shoe department.
So this is where I had to let my Mom sense kick in. I wanted some blush tennis shoes or slides. We found a really cute pair that were a little lighter pink and had more white. Madelaine preferred those but I knew with kids light pink and all that white wasn't going to stay clean. So I had to go with my "mom sense" here and opt for these blush ones by Ugg! They are perfect for spring and summer and I think they will hold up great in the wash.
So do I look 23 now? Final answer NO! Darn it I think the wrinkles, unwashed hair, and tired mom look give my age away but hey cheers to trying to keep up with the "youngster" staying stylish in our athleisure wear!
