Animal prints, a basic addition to any wardrobe.  Why not bring out the animal instinct with the Sunshine?

But then a friend of mine on the baseball field last night mentioned Jet Hatmaker’s Worst End of School Year Mom Ever blog posting from last year, (hello, where the heck have you been reversecommuter!??!) and I realized that at this time of year, a one item outfit is not only climate appropriate, it is NECESSARY to maintain some sort of mental stability – there is just WAY TOO MUCH going on!!!!!!!!!!

Specifically SKIN jammies.    Susan Beischel’s line is luxurious, priced gently, beyond comfy and a serious step up from yoga pants (don’t get me started!).  Click here for previous SKIN love.
