my outfit: grey ruffles!

That JCrew, went and did it again. Another absolutely lovely top. (I think I snagged it for $14.99 even!) The thought did cross my mind when I recently ordered from JCrew... well, maybe the tops will absolutely suck - that way when the catalog arrives in my mailbox next I won't be so drawn in. Unfortunately (well, fortunately, really) that was not the case.

Their embellished tops are unparalleled. Period.

They are ideal for moms; easy to wear, gorgeous and comfortable.

I wore this top from they gym (after showering of course!), to the carpool, to the kitchen all day making meals for some gal pals that just had babies, to delivering meals, to visiting with my amazing friend Julianne that I never get to see enough and her gorgeous baby, to pushing my daughter on the swing for hours and back home (I evened witnessed a nasty car crash.... is that the most unnerving feeling, or what?). Pretty much here there and every where. Whew!

And yes, for the record... these shoes make me feel AMAZING! I could wear them every single day. It's hard to believe there was a day when I got to wear heels everyday. My dear friend Julianne got to witness those days. So of course I knew she would appreciate these heels when I wore them to deliver her meal. She was my partner in shoe-crime. Very dangerous indeed were we! (Lunch trips to Nordstrom (c)Rack!)

ps. today is my mom's birthday - I think she is like 45 again! (wink, wink) - Happy Birthday Mom!
pps. have a great Mother's Day weekend to all the moms!

Love it. Those ruffles are so so pretty. And, the shoes? I know how you feel about heels & all about lunch hours spent at Nordstrom Rack...aaahhhh...days without little people. I wouldn't trade them for anything, but I do love days with a super hot pair of heels.
