Petite Fashion Friday (April 22)

Only a few favorite outfits for this week to show you because I’ve been sick with a bad cold and pink eye. Gross. I’m recuperating in bed as I type.

Monday was a rough day.  I drank too much sangria (homemade, yummy) the night before and then stayed up way too late.  So, there were bags galore under my eyes, and I wanted to wear some bold colors to distract from the face region!  Enter the Margaret M Christiana Skirt – Blue (XSP) from Stitch Fix #4.  I’ve only worn this skirt once, and that’s a shame because it’s so pretty and such a great Stitch Fix find. I love the subtle print on this skirt because it works with so well many different colors and even  other prints in my closet. On Monday, I paired this skirt with a cobalt button-down top from Banana Republic and eggplant pumps from Nine West.

Oh, and my oldest 2 kids had a teacher workday, so while one went to the movies with his friend, I brought my daughter to work with me. Being the eclectic dresser that she is, here is what she wore.

Gotta love her sense of style. And her fearless way of mixing and matching colors and prints.  I wish I had the nerve.

On Thursday, I spent most of the morning in bed with a massive headache and stuffy nose, but had to rally and get up to go buy my son a new soccer ball before practice. Because he couldn’t be bothered to put his soccer ball in his bag like I tell him over and over again, ad nauseum, and instead left it in the street for me to run over with my car the day before. Not wanting him to get in trouble with his coach for coming to practice ill-prepared, the good mommy in me got out of my sickbed. I’ll spare you the details of how annoyed I am about that!

So, pink eye treated and cured, and doped up on cold medicine, I put together this outfit to go out in public and not scare everyone!This dress is the Loft Petite Sleeveless Silky Drawstring Waist Shirt Dress in Rich Crimson (size XXSP), which I bought in November 2015 for like $4 from the final sale rack. Yessss.  My sister actually blogged about it a few weeks ago on her Sunday Share guest post, and I think it’s so funny that we have the same dress and styled it in a similar way.  Great minds clearly think alike.

I love the color of this dress. And it feels so silky, like a dream. 

I needed a light jacket because it was a little breezy (and, you know, I had the chills and all), so I threw on a jean jacket (size XXSP) I bought in 2015 from Loft.  I also wore a gold-tone statement necklace that I bought 5 or 6 years ago from World Market and a pair of girl’s Sam Edelman sandals that I picked up from Nordstrom Rack in 2014 or 2015. A little about these sandals – I bought the girl’s version because I’m cheap and they were $20 cheaper than a similar pair in the women’s section.  No brainer when you’re an el cheapo like me!

Enjoy your Friday and have a great weekend. I’m going back to sleep – I need to get healthy for the 5K I am supposed to run with my oldest tomorrow morning at 8:30 am. Oh lord. It’s gonna be ugly.

  1. You looks adorbs and you do not look sick at all. So, you make sick look amazing. I love love love your daughter’s outfit. It cracks me up to see how my girls put together fashion. Hoping you are feeling a bit better by now.

    1. You are so sweet. I ran a 5K race this weekend with my 9-year-old and I really shouldn’t have. Pretty sure it set me back a few days – still feel like poo! But, no time to be sick, so pressing on! And I find that if I put a little effort to look decent on the outside, it make me feel better on the inside! 🙂 Have a great day!
