Soccer Mom Chic

I started out the afternoon wearing The Dress as simply The Dress. After going to Zumba this morning, (the first exercise class I've been to all week) I didn't really have anywhere else to go all day. The Dress as it is seemed practical. Until I remembered that Lolly has soccer practice tonight. Suddenly wearing The Dress to soccer seemed too fancy and impractical. I put on a pair of knee-length denim shorts and tucked The Dress in. The fabric is so thin, and the shorts so roomy that I didn't even need to puff The Dress out at all. I kind of liked the slim black tucked-in top look. I added my Origami Owl lockets, a pearl anklet from my aunt, my flower earrings from my brother and sister-in-law's wedding and a beaded bracelet made by my friend Paula from Scotland. I tied my hair back in a messy bun and clipped my fringe back with a sparkly diamante barrette.

And then I needed shoes. I have a few pairs of very practical shoes that would have worked. But then I saw my super high-heeled, super comfy black shoes and put them on. They are completely impractical for the soccer fields. Yet I loved it. So I'm dubbing this look the Soccer Mom Chic look.
