Happy Monday (Ugh.). I hope that you all had the most wonderful weekend. I am actually still recovering from mine. You see, ever since I had kids, my weekends are no longer my own. It's amazing how these little peeps who walk like drunk midgets and can't wipe their own butts yet can have such packed social schedueles. Not that I'm complaining, as I wouldn't change it for the world. But this Saturday especially was crazy busy; I had to fit in a morning of grocery shopping and kids activities, followed by a baby shower in the afternoon and a dinner party for 12 chez moi in the early evening. How the hell was I going to get everything done? And more importantly what the hell was I going to wear?
And then the lightbulb went on in my head (which, doesn't happen very often by the way). I grabbed my Diane Von Furstenberg Manette dress (shown here) and decided that I would work it 3 different ways; each look tailored to reflect the activity in question. As I was unable to take actual shots of my outfits on Saturday I will do my best to do a re-enactment for you. So here goes:
I swear, I must have been on crack when I signed my son up for French tutoring at 9:00 on Saturday morning. Add in an hour of grocery shopping, a tiny tigers lesson at the Tae Kwon do studio and a stop by Kumon to pick up some extra math homework and by noon I was ready for a nap. As I wanted to incorporate my DVF dress into my morning routine, I decided to keep it as casual as possible by throwing on a neutral colored Moto jacket (seen also here) and a pair of comfy, casual shoes.
Saturday: 1:30 pm
After my morning of being a chauffeur to the little ones I had to haul ass downtown to the swanky Four Seasons hotel for the baby shower of one of my besties. We had an afternoon of high tea planned, a few hours of doing nothing but laughing, gossiping and of course, filling our faces with fancy sandwiches and litres and litres of tea. For this event I stripped off the moto jacket, added a pair of fun heels and of course I had to bring Mademoiselle Chanel out to play.
Saturday: 5:20 pm
Scarf: Alexander McQueen
After high tea, I had to drive me and my food baby home, and of course traffic was a bitch and I arrived 20 minutes late to my own dinner party. How embarrassing, but very thankful I had hubby to help greet the guests, prepare the appetizers and take care of the kids in my absence. He's a god (he didn't ask me to type this in, i swear!). As I was already home I didn't really feel the need to get dressed up again but thought that it would be fun to throw on a scarf and really play hostess 'with the mostess'. This Alexander McQueen scarf is just the perfect item to throw on when I have like two seconds to spare. And you'll notice that I'm not wearing shoes. My husband calls this my 'barefoot in the kitchen' look :)
So, as you can see, my dress and I really pulled triple duty here this weekend. I really don't understand why they would pay Sarah Jessica Parker millions of dollars to star in 'I don't know how she does it' when they could have just asked me to do it for free :) Hehe, is anyone else looking forward to seeing that movie?
Now it's your turn- what item in your closet would you consider a triple threat (meaning that it could take you from morning, noon and night?) I would love to hear.
And of course, thanks so much for reading. I hope that you have a great Tuesday!
