First, I want to let you all know that this is my 99th blog post! I have something special in mind for my 100th post coming up early next week. And also another special post the following week to celebrate my 1 year blogiversary! So please be sure to check back and see what I have planned!
Now on to this post…
Tuesday night, I escaped all parenting duties and headed to dinner and movie with my friend Aimee. I went for super comfortable in my very distressed and faded boyfriend jeans, a boxy tee, footbed sandals, and a lightweight sweater around my waist in case the movie theater was chilly. I also seized the opportunity to show off my new Churchill Timber Watch that I recently won in a blogger giveaway! I entered a few Timber Watch giveaways and the email never told me which blogger hosted the giveaway that I had won. But thank you to the mystery blogger! I love my new watch!
Jeans, Tee, and Cardigan: Old Navy (all old).
Sandals: Payless Topaz Woven Footbed Sandals (currently on sale for $15).
Watch: Churchill Timber Watch
Evil Eye Bracelet: Michal Golan.
Bag: Bed|Stu (I have had this bag for a really long time).
My Timber Watch:
A random passerby outside the mall was giving me a thumbs up while I was so awkwardly posing in front of the stone wall! Aimee was so kind as to continue snapping photos!
And the required girls’ night out selfie…
…with my awkwardly placed hand.
We went to see the movie Bad Moms.
My quick review in one paragraph: It was not what I expected. I definitely laughed. A lot. But it was very unrealistic and a tad bit over the top. I guess I expected it to be more about the very real struggles in daily parenting which produce plenty of humor. Perhaps because my children are not yet school-aged (my oldest is just starting kindergarten this Fall) and the premise of the story was based around battles amongst PTA moms, I had really no frame of reference to relate to some it. But the message was much appreciated…that none of us are perfect moms and none of us really know what the hell we are doing in this parenting gig, so we should just stop judging each other and get on with the struggle. Because it is real, people. This struggle is real! Worth watching, for sure. Just a little different from my expectations.
So I have covered the outfit, the watch, and the movie. Now on to the link up.
Thank you to all of the fabulous bloggers who linked up On the Edge of the Week last week! I do apologize if I have not made my way around to each post linked up. Life is getting the best of me lately! But I swear once school starts in a few weeks and my husband is home for good, I will have much more time to commit to checking in with everyone. But please do spread the word about my little link up so we can really get this party off the ground!
And now…here are your favorite links from last week!
Ana’s black and white silk drawstring-waist dress definitely caught a lot of attention. She looks absolutely stunning in this beautiful dress. For more outfit inspiration from Ana, visit her blog Mrs. American Made.
