Everyone is different... but in terms of motherhood, the whole "soccer-mom" phase for me is a much better "place" to be than the "stroller-mom." The toddler years were tough for me (and still are with my two-almost-three year old) but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Especially on soccer Saturdays. My son is becoming so independent on the field and, I know I am biased, but he's quite talented as well.
For now I have a little control over what activities my kids get into... that will change someday, I know, I know. But whatever they decide to do I just love cheering them on. My husband actually tells me at soccer games that I need to be quiet and just let my son play.
But I like to cheer him on and encourage him. I'm not all crazy on the sidelines, don't get me wrong. But my husband is definitely more reserved than I am.
Where am I going with all this? Oh, yeah. This is what I wore to the fields last weekend. Simple, comfortable and stylish. But not overboard. This silk scarf was a gift from Neiman's (ooohhhhh, yesss, NEIMANS!) eons ago. Good style never goes out of style, ladies. And it's silk. I have one other silk scarf and I know why the older generation (silk doesn't seem to be so "in" lately, does it?) just rave over it. It's light as a breeze on your skin but is actually quite warm, but not sweaty or itchy. Just dreamy, creamy silk.
