i’ve realized that while i don’t hate winter entirely, bright colors are what get me through these later months after the holidays end. even if it’s just a pop of color on my lips, it goes a long way to lift my mood when i am freaking cold! when i put this outfit together in my bedroom, i walked over to the next room where josh was working and asked him, “too much? do i look like i’m dressing up as a flight attendant?” i can’t remember which airline always has their flight attendants in the cutest berets with matching red lips, but i swear i’ve seen it and felt like i was about to board a flight along with them. but he kept reassuring me it was one of his favorite looks i’ve put together, and so i went with it.
i always know the outfit is somewhat decent when my kids also comment on it. maybe it’s because i’ve been in pajamas more than usual for the majority of the last few months, but when all three of them say “mama! i like your hat!” or “ooh, your shoes!” i always take that as the biggest compliment. conrad actually put these red heels on the other night and was walking around saying, “hello! i mama!” and i was rolling. you always have those couple of things you hope your kids will remember you by, or when they see or smell something specific, have it remind them of you. i don’t know, maybe i’m already just overthinking all that sort of stuff, but i do hope color is something they remember i loved and made me happy. especially in cold and dreary february…. give me all the color!
i have a dentist appointment today which i already wish was over, and then a long to-do list for work that has me both anxious and excited. in just a few weeks time, josh and i get to share something really exciting with you all and i honestly cannot wait! it’s been so hard for me to keep quiet for all these months! stay tuned, and have a wonderfully colorful and happy day!
