We Do What We Have To Get It Done...

Worn to work Friday, August 12

Thank you, thank you, thank you Friday for FINALLY getting here!

I was feeling kind of sassy today while taking these photos.  Maybe it was the bold (for me) lip color, the dangley necklace, clank of the bangles on my arm or maybe the long silhouette evoked by the maxi skirt... Whatever it was, it felt good!  I don't usually wear much of a bold lip-color, especially in the summer, but I just felt like amping my look up, and picked up this lip shade at Target.  I think I am going to have to wear a colored lip more often, it totally finishes my look!

So, I have two friends that are very pregnant right now...both due within the next month. Talking to them has made me remember back to those two times when I was in the end stages of my pregnancies, wondering how the hell I was going to do it all...babies, house, husband, kids, work...life.  I am still not sure how I did it, but here I am... 35, 1 marriage, 2 healthy kids, a house in the suburbs, work full time... surviving it all...
I just want to make sure that I slow down enough to realize how lucky I am to have this life...

Hope everyone has a relaxing weekend...I know I will try.

You should feel sassy because you definitely look sassy. The Maxi Skirt is a great look on you. I love it. Happy Friday Friend!

I think you look fantastic--and you're right, the lipstick is a great touch. I rarely wear lipstick either, usually I stick to gloss. But I need to venture out of my comfort zone and try it more often. I love how it looks on you!

I love the sassy lip shade! I always feel a bit apprehensive about going darker on the lip, but it totally works and does add so much polish!

Love the outfit! yeah I don't know how some woman do it - babies & working full time sounds like a ton to me! :) Loved the photos of your Kelly Moore Bag, great choice!

This lip color looks fantastic on you! There is nothing like a great lipstick to make you feel like a million bucks and make you feel sassy. You should definitely do this more often.

I like how you worked your maxi skirt. Maybe I need to try belting it like you did and not tucking my shirt in next time.

The lip color looks awesome on you! And the color from your jewelery takes you from neutrals to FUN!

That is a great lip color, and I'm loving your hair in these pictures, too!
