It's been hot & steamy here, so Livi is getting to wear all the cute summer clothes I purchased from Lisa. This little linen top & capri pant set is so cute. I thought I was done with shopping, but I need to get her more shoes. Turns out the ones I bought her were too big. They seemingly fit fine at the store, but are now falling off her feet. Note to self, make sure Livi walks in the shoes when trying them on. So she is wearing her beat up summer sneaks on gym days.

On Thursday John & I get to meet the teacher. I am looking forward to that. Fingers crossed that our teen sitter can watch Livi~

so far so good

Knock on wood.. Livi has not put up to much of a fight to wear her new girly clothes. I usually pull out two outfits and let her choose one. She is saying how other kids wear tank tops/shorts and flip flops. I tell Livi that her play clothes- tank tops, shorts and flip flops are not appropriate for school.
Stay tuned for more pics this week

apple for teacher

Livi was so cute today, she gave the teacher a big shiny apple and said " ummm.. please make sure you wash it, cause I dropped it like two times"... she was so nervous she dropped that apple over & over while waiting in the hall. She did really well. She sat with an aide and did some literacy testing while I met with the teacher. You can read more about that on my other blog.

Fave Flats

I love heels... but I walk up & down stairs all day long. My office is on the 2nd floor and everything else is on the lower level. Anytime I need to use the fax or print something out, I go up and down. I At court I am up & down stairs all the time, so my feet get mighty tired at the end of the day. I work at the old court house just a few times a month, their ancient elevator got stuck and people were trapped for five hours and they needed to pump in oxygen. Ever since then.. I take the stairs and always get a good workout on those days. My new pointy toe flats in black and awesome ballet flats.... I own both, my Jessica Simpson pair are on their last leg.. that is how much I wear those. When I do need to wear heels I depend on these kitten heels. I always get compliments on my JS flats and my kitten heels.

what are your must have shoes?

Her Pick

Today I told Livi she could wear whatever she wanted. She excitedly asked " even if it doesn't match?". I reminded her that it was her choice. Typically I give her a final OK...because you just never know what she will pick. Today she did Great and even fixed her own hair. On Tuesday you will see my " meet the teacher" choice.

more than I can chew

So yeah... I am not sure I can pull off a daily picture blog, you know with the balancing work and motherhood and all. So I was thinking at least twice a week should be doable. Like my fav outfit of the week and then Liv's fav. I have promised Livi that we would take turns . To avoid any morning fights I always lay clothes out the night before.

I will also try to post other stuff fun stuff here and leave the heavy stuff for my other blog. Speaking of fun stuff... how cute would this outfit be for back to school, or this whole collection.
Livi needs no more clothes, but I do. I need a fall wardrobe for work.

Some Favorite looks of the Past


Hi Everyone,

I was inspired to start this blog modeled after a fav of mine, I am not sure I will have time to give brand details like my fellow Ohioan does, But I am going to attempt to post a daily outfit picture. I am trying to work out design kinks and find a template that I like. Posts should start next week.
