Everyday Mom


Good Morning! Or at least I assume you are all like me & the first thing you do in the morning is log on to check out Bombshell Beauty.  Sara’s in Jamaica wearing swimsuits while her dear mother (me-and please note I did not say dear “old” mother) is stuck here in Iowa wearing wool & pleather.

 

 Yes, pleather or at least that’s what I call the black jacket since my husband (Sara’s Dad) thought it was leather when I brought it home. Once we both saw the label that said “machine wash” it’s been my pleather jacket. 

Oh yeah and the red plaid skirt isn’t really wool either since it too says “machine wash” but it made for a better opening line. Paired with tights (Sara finally got me to try them – love them) and a solid red very soft long sleeve shirt and boots it’s great for the office & meetings. I know the veteran readers of Sara’s blog know I like easy, so the fact that everything is machine washable & doesn’t need to be ironed really works for me and my life style. 

For those who are new to the blog, you can click here to see the first of a series of posts I did this past May.   (Since I’m just positive you really want to know more about me & I wouldn’t think of boring those who remember the May post by repeating myself.)
 
No close ups of the jewelry this time as my photographer was busy making dinner when these shots were taken. But I’m wearing my ruby earrings &   ring with this outfit – no necklace since the jacket has so much going on & I find it very difficult to keep a necklace on the outside of my shirt when I wear a crew neck.

  3. I'm not sure about the skirt on the basis of machine wash.. I have a lot of wool stuff that can be washed in the machine... hmmmm!

  4. Thanks Jessica - hope she lets me do it again sometime.

    Kay - checked the label & it's polyester & rayon but will be on the lookout for washable wool!
