I have two animal print looks that I shot last week, but what I’m going to write about has nothing to with them so this will be a two for one. I’ve mentioned before that my 5 year old, Jaden has sensory issues as well as adhd…well this morning I thought he was going to get out of the door fine. We got him up, he took his supplement (Vayarin) that helps him focus and stay somewhat under control, he got dressed…no problem. Then as we were leaving he got cold and all heck broke loss because he remembered that they only let them wear school approved uniform jackets or sweaters in class and he went all animal (nice way of putting it). We managed to put him in the car and I start to back up as he is ripping his seat belt off and screaming “you were never my best friend” (that’s the current insult of choice and it lasted for the 7 minute drive). I pull up to the school drop Christian off, go to the other line and to drop off Cameron and him, by this point he’s sobbing because my response to him screaming at me was “well then I’ll go home and take back all the stuff I’ve ever given you since we aren’t friends.” He and Cameron go to get out and I hand him his lunch, he then throws it at me so I throw it out of the car onto the sidewalk. Mom of the year right here! Why am I telling you all this? Because it’s hard being a mom sometimes and I constantly beat myself up but I know deep down that we all have days like this and I never want to be that person to pretend like I have it all together because I most certainly do not! I hadn’t gotten ready yet so I cried all the way home pulled myself together and went back to the school to make sure he was ok. As he was walking down to the office he smiled at me and I told the lady walking him down that we had a bad morning and I didn’t want his day to go poorly. He looked at me and said I’m fine and gave me a big hug. I needed that hug.
Now for some cute clothes. Pink lemons.
I styled two animal print looks at Thread while I was there. (My readers still have a 15% off discount with the code Pinklemons15).
This outfit is a little more of a date night look. I like putting leggings with lightweight fabrics in the fall for the wide range of temps we can see in one day.
The L’agence maxi is available online and in store. I’m kinda obsessed with this brand right now. The leggings are a little mush on their own for me but work perfect with the maxi. Both shoes and hat are new arrivals at Thread and are available in store!
