Layer Liar

Denial.  

    
I refuse to acknowledge that old man winter is right around the corner.

  
Nor’Easters.  Blizzards.  The dreaded Snow Days (mamas everywhere shudder with that phrase!).  Nope, not coming.

  
Sundresses, jean jackets maybe add a shawl or a cape if it’s really chilly.  Open toe booties help keep the dream alive!

   
 Slip a turtleneck or a white shirt under the dress if the thermometer is being particularly challenging.

    
Just keep denying the inevitable.  

The One Step

I thought it was just me.  Suddenly I am the queen of the one step.1stepB

Lunch must come in a box

step5

Outfit must be one piece, maximum.

step4

Perfect lunch date (with said boxed lunch) somehow squeezed into crazed day

1step

Quickly add one soul saving dip in the pool before the school bus brings home the rambunctious-sports playing-school project doing-constantly competing-always giggling- loudness delivering-awesome twins, who I truly love more than words.

stepC

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!!!!!!!!!!

A couple of my current fave dresses are (in no particular order by the by…)

What is a wilted girl to wear?   If not a bikini then a dress.  Wrap, maxi or tank, but definitely a dress.

And maybe throw the bikini in the bag, just in case….
