Lace and Cargo

How do you scratch your itch for fall when it’s 90 degrees?  Olive cargo shorts in place of a cargo jacket or olive jeans.   Booyah.
I took my first solo trip with Addie in this outfit, sans Benson.  We trekked an entire 8 minute drive to the pediatrician’s office.  Do we know how to live it up, or WHAT?  Okay seriously though, I was a little nervous about it, but it went really well.  So well that we stopped by Target on the way home.  (Gotta start ’em on Target young!)  And then, just as I thought we were killing it she completely melted down later that night screaming bloody murder for an inconsolable 20 minutes.  All to our neighbors’ delight.
Oh, and I missed the memo about milk collecting in the skin folds under babies’ chins.  Only learned about it after Addie’s face smelled like rotting cheese for a couple of days.  I asked a friend about it who pointed me to the horror growing in Addie’s chin folds.  Pretty much exactly that–rotting, moldy cheese.  #momoftheyear

On that lovely note…ummm, style…?  I’m suuuuper glad to be reunited with one of my all-time favorite pieces, this lace tank.  I can wear it in multiple seasons with more or less layers over it.  Read a little more about why a top like this is awesome in this old post “Shabby to Chic: Buying the Right Pieces” and see the ways I’ve worn it in the past here.
