Saturday Soccer Mom

Linking up for How We Wear It with Aint No Mom Jeans and Life in Mod Sneaker Edition!

So, it has begun. A life of Saturday Mornings at The Field. A Rush out the door whilst trying not to forget water-bottles, hats, sunscreen, camera, cleats..oh yeah, and the kiddos. Signing up for Orange Slices and other kid-friendly (but Mom approved) snacks and drinks.

In essence, I am officially a Soccer Mom.

But, do I have to look like a "soccer mom"? No! :)

However, I also have a 15 month old Baby Girl that needs watching, tending, and toddling after, so while I love the idea of being That Cool Mom in the Perfect Sundress or what-have-you, that's just not gonna happen.

But, here is what DID happen: Comfy T, cuffed denim, and easy slip on shoes! I ran out of time and therefore ran out the door without a stitch of make-up or hair sense, so I know I FAILED in the ball cap department.

But I don't have a this is what I have to work with. (Hmmm, note to self: WHY didn't I think of a scarf?! Next time...)

See, I couldn't sit like this in a Sundress ;)

I love that all I need to do to make jeans into capris is a cuff :)
(First time going with the Single Large Cuff, and I like it!)

Half-tuck and higher-rise jeans

And a Little Boy who is too excited to stand still for a pic with Mama

See...couldn't do this in a Sundress either ;)
So, I've been quite sure I wasn't the type to pull off The Fedora....but maybe I outta give it a whirl. It'd at least be a step up from a ball cap, right? (Not even gonna mention the Pitifulness that is That Ponytail)

For Curious Minds Who May Want to Know:
T-Shirt (I'm ready for the eye-rolls): Pea in the Pod
Jeans: Levi's mid-rise (cuffed)
Shoes: Kmart
Sunnies: Marshalls
Ballcap: No one is interested ;)

So, I hope everyone is having a GREAT Saturday. My house is full of Quiet Nappers, so I think I'm gonna take a light snooze on the couch.

But until next time, Lots of Love!


  1. You look adorable, Abby!! And I love the trying-to-grab-the-kiddo-and-pose pose. I know them well. :)

    I'm so into baseball hats at the moment also. I stole my son's from his t-ball league last year. It's navy, with a big C on it. For...chic? That's what I tell him when he complains. :)

    1. I would very gladly trade in my ratty ball cap for one that stands for Chic ha! Hmmmm a post on ball caps from you? Sounds good ;) (like you dont' have other Way Cooler Blog topics to do ha!)

    1. Thank you! And thanks for taking the time to leave this comment :) I always have to laugh when I think I'm making a fashion No-No only to find out that maybe I'm apparently On Trend. Better than the other way around, I think ha!
