YAY! Are you guys ready for this? It's my FIRST OUTFIT POST. Despite the fact that I feel like a complete idiot having my husband take pictures of me for my blog, I'm excited to add this to the site and I think it'll be inspiring to come up with cute, mom-appropriate outfits (that aren't camo pants and flip flops, natch.) So without further adieu, I give you our first "What I Wore" post. Drum roll please!

Accessory pics! These shoes make me die with delight!
Alright, so this peach/coral outfit was inspired by my messy room. Which means, I came home from shopping and threw this tank top on the floor, which happened to be where my favorite coral cardigan was. A wonderful color pairing was born. I added my Mad Men-esque skirt and then my leopard pumps that I pined for and finally bought but have only worn twice. This is the kind of person I am. Anyway, I wore this to church, which explains the world's biggest tote bag: it's stuffed with crayons and fruit snacks and books to ensure good children during the hour-long first meeting. Also, sometimes I eat the gummy worms in there. It's shameful but how else am I supposed to stay awake? I mean REALLY.
I also really love the layered necklace I'm wearing. I bought it on a whim and find myself wearing it with anything I possibly can. It's one piece so it's easy to slap on and look like I tried.
Also, a couple of style notes that you can use. See how my shirt is untucked? I do that when my cardigan or jacket is shorter than the top of my pants/skirt, since otherwise you get a weird strip of fabric. If my topper meets or is longer than the top of my pants, I'll tuck in the undershirt for a cleaner overall look. Does that make any sense at all? It's just one of those little things that make a big difference style-wise.
Also, my legs are really tan and I'm pretty happy about that.
ANYWAY, how did I do? Should we keep this and do it weekly or are you like OMG Jae shut up?
