My New Favorite Outfit: Orange and Scallops? Yes, please!

Orange and Scallops? Yes, please!

Tuesday is library day with the Granster, and this is what I wore.  I was always a part of a reading program growing up and loved it! Now, I'm so glad that it's available for my son as well.  During the time at the library there's story time, a craft, show and tell, and a snack.  The kids love it and it's a great opportunity for Grant to build his literacy skills. The kids go in on their own, so that means 45 minutes of me getting to cozy up with a book of my own. : ) 

 I was super excited to find this top and these shorts recently at Plato's Closet.  I'm so loving the scallop trend and love the bright color.  Up until last summer I was very self-conscious about my arms and would never wear a tank top solo, but when you have a toddler whose favorite past time is playing in the park you learn to adjust your clothing or sweat to death.  I'm still not crazy about my arms, but I've come to realize there isn't one mom out there who will take the time to criticize them while they're out and about; they all have more important things to do, like enjoying the time with their own kids.  I'm glad I've come to realize this.








Top: Art and Co. $6 (Plato's Closet)
Shorts: Gap $5 (Plato's Closet)
Necklace: Stella and Dot Gitane
Bracelets: Stella and Dot Julip bangle, Renegade, and Target bangle
Shoes: JCrew (circa 2007ish)
Bag: Stella and Dot Metallic Ikat

  16. Eeeee scallops are adorable. And I totally hear you on the arms thing... I've recently come to the same realization. The other moms at the park either don't notice or don't care, so neither should I!
