Am I the only person who feels like it’s next to impossible to find a cute pair of bermudas that don’t scream “Mom Shorts!!!!” Please tell me I’m not. I finally decided that if I couldn’t find the right pair I would just make what I had into the perfect pair.
Shorts & Sweater: Old Navy | Chambray Shirt: Shop & Apparel
These shorts were a little longer with a traditional hem and they just weren’t super flattering on me. The hem kind of squeezed at the top of my knee and made them look fat. Who wants fat knees?! No one right? So right before I took these photos I took my trusty Fiskars out and whacked em off. A little rub together on the edge and the perfect frayed white denim shorts were now in my wardrobe! Lesson: Don’t throw that almost awesome item in your closet away. See what you can easily alter to make them perfect!
Bag: Lily Jade
Considering that I also have this bag in Red, which you can see me sporting here, it’s safe to say that I just love Lily Jade bags. They really have thought of everything you could possibly want in a bag. Looks like a beautiful purse and hidden inside is the Mommy’s best friend: a diaper bag insert! It has more pockets that you can imagine, I always put my most needed items in the great big outside pockets which has put years back on my life! You know the moment when you look through your bag and panic because you think you’ve lost your phone? No more! I always know where it is.
With 3 little ones running around I need all the hands I can get. That is why the backpack carry is my fave way to style the straps!
When I just get to be me instead of Mom I like to wear it cross body style for easy access to the contents. You can also carry it over the shoulder.
Necklace: Metal Marvels | Bracelets: Charming Charlie
I passed these sandals up on several trips to Target. After like the 4th time I decided enough was enough. I’ve had been playing hard to get too long and snagged em up. Ugh, they feel like heaven on my feet! The leather is so soft and and the elastic straps are so comfortable, I just live in these shoes!
