I hope that you all had a really fun, exciting weekend! Our weekend was adventurous, but not nearly as busy as my weekend (here). So this is what I wore today:
This was supposed to be my 'going to a kid's birthday party' outfit but quickly morphed into a 'little one was sick and had a pukefest this morning so brought him to his Dr. who held a walk in clinic today at his office but we missed the birthday party and I had to take the subway to work and grab my computer because I will be working from home tomorrow' outfit. Pretty crazy, huh? But not as crazy as the title of this post.
What the hell is a soccer mom anyways?
Well, Wikipedia describes it as ' a middle class suburban woman who spends most of her time transporting her kids to soccer and other various activities'.
If we look at it from a fashion point of view, it's usually ' a mother who is constantly sporting a combination of sweats (or the mom jeans' you know the kind, highwaisted, baggy and about 3 sizes too big), running shoes and the unadventurous ponytail'. Not to critique- I mean, it's great that these women are catering to their kids, we all do it (myself included). But pul-lease do not lose your fashion sense in the process. Putting on a pair of flattering jeans and a nice top takes about the same time (if not less) then putting on those dreaded lululemon pants. Go for glam, not grungy.
So that said folks, you will not see any sweatpants here.
But maybe a sexy little shawl:
With some cute fringe:
And maybe a trick up my sleeve:
So just out of curiousity, what do you think of the term 'soccer' mom? I would love to know!
Thanks so much for reading. And have a great and fabulous Monday (ugh).
