my outfit: maxi skirt for the win!

We have some silly little traditions in our family.  They seem so trivial, but the fact is that all of the members of our household depend on and enjoy them.  One is Saturday morning donuts.  The tradition goes a little like this:

On Saturdays when there are no soccer games the 'dad' rounds up the 'kids' and takes them to the donut place for a sugary start to the weekend.  This all goes down while the 'mom' (me) sleeps a little extra.  Pure bliss.

Due to my husband's travel schedule and my son's soccer schedule this past weekend the donut tradition was switched to Sunday morning.  (yes, we skipped church - gasp!)  And double gasp, I also went along.  What can I say, I was so happy to have my husband home I made the kids share him.

So what does this mom need when she is skipping out on beauty sleep for some family time?

The next best thing to pajamas: a maxi skirt and a boyfriend tee. Done and done.

Messy buns help too.

And large necklaces and sunglasses take the focus off the fact that you just rolled out of bed. Nothing like a little distraction.

This outfit has serious potential for addiction.  Consider yourself warned.

You pull off the "I just rolled out of bed look," well.

I don't think I could... I think it would look like I tried to hard!

Lastly, I just started reading your blog and I really enjoy it!

Your blog is one of my favorites and I love your style! I am bad at commenting as I'm usually reading everything on my iphone and commenting is difficult. Thought I'd send a note to say that I love the skirt! You're helping me rethink the maxi skirt...love it! :)

Love this outfit - so simple and casual yet very pulled together. The necklace is so lovely against the white and gray. I featured you on my love list today! :)
