Travel Wear

I am trying to be really practical when it comes to packing for vacation. Two small kids, an airport, a week worth of stuff is just a lot to manage so I want to be comfy when I travel and be able to wear some of the things when I am out there. I don’t want to wear shorts but the thought of wearing jeans sounds terrible too since it will be in the 90’s when we get there.

 

It might be the perfect time to try the pants ( I have been wanting them all winter) and all of a sudden I am a big fan of Lucy Activewear.  I am thinking my Mia slip-ons are the just the right things to wear in the airport and slip on and off. I can wear this stuff again when I am out hiking, walking or getting a run in since I am confident our kids will be up early!

What do you like to wear when you travel?

OOTD and Catch Up

Happy Friday Friends! I am once again typing from 35,000 feet. I am headed back from being out west on a business trip to California with Glenn. Newport Beach and Del Mar were on the agenda. We squeezed in some bike riding together. I even shopped a bit and was able to catch an unbelievable West Coast sunset.  I can’t say I was upset about the location but I sure do hate being gone from my babies. I know they were in good hands though with their Mimi and PawPaw and probably didn’t even notice I was gone.

Weird clothes  for me last week. I just wasn’t feeling anything. Every single day I was just feeling pretty blah and I think my clothes showed this. Maybe it was the fact that I was traveling at the end of the week but here’s to hoping I can pull it together this week a bit more even though I am going to be at conference half of the week.

Speaking of work, I will not see my students for a full five days in a row until the second week of December. For all of you non-teachers, you have no idea how hard this is but trust when I tell you it’s brutal.  And adds a whole other layer to my life.  And for all of you teachers, you get why I am stressed out. Not to mention sub plans are harder than daily plans.

And back to talking about clothes, I am so wanting to get in on the bootie craze but I am not joking when I tell you that I can’t for the life of me figure out how in the world someone my age wears them and makes them look normal. I just don’t get it. I have tried pairs on, brought pairs home and yet still I can’t find a pair that is “right” for me. So, I am thinking I am not meant for them but I sure do have envy of those of you that can wear them!

Hope you  enjoyed the weekend. I soaked up some sunshine, read a book and am now happily home snuggling my babies! Here’s to a new week!

OOTD {Week 3}

Happy Friday Friends! If you haven’t figured out by how late this post went out this week kicked my butt. I’m not even sure why because it was a relatively quiet week, a normal week in our house, per se with the exception of my parents visiting. So, I promise to be back next week with some new posts and hopefully they won’t be late.  Next week is jammed with work commitments for both us so I need to get my sh*t together this weekend if I have any hope of surviving the week.

The weather this week went from 90 to 60 in the span of five days. I wore lots of dresses and tanks because I think that the warm weather is coming to an end.  Maybe another week but I want to make sure I get some of these cute things in before we have snow.  Kidding.   Good ole Chicago never seems to ease in to a season.   Happy Weekend! Bear Down Chicago!

OOTD {Week 2}

Easy week for me to get dressed! No school Monday and no school Thursday means I only had to get dressed two days this week for real.  Today, I am sporting a bright red t-shirt supporting our PAC (contract negotiations team) and my teacher’s union because we are working without a contract currently.  With the weather staying warm I am trying to squeak in as many skirts and dresses as possible before I am relegated to pants, leggings and jeans.

White jeans in September? I think so. I think that fashion no-no doesn’t really exsist anymore right? Happy weekend friends! We are going to sneak in some beach time, Brady starts hockey and of course the Bears are on Sunday at noon!
