SAHM Style: Windy City Soiree

Yesterday afternoon, #WCSoiree was going down at Chicago's Water Tower and I did not have a babysitter for V. All of my social media friends were going so I did what any SAHM blogger would do, I took her to the party with me! I only considered leaving her at home with an iPad and a couple of pbj sandwiches for a second (I kid).

What's a stay at home mom to do, style wise, in this situation? I briefly thought about donning heels but my feet said "don't do it, girl". Glad I listened to them. Instead, I wore wedges. It was a breeze going up and down escalators and picking V up when she was feeling left out of the conversation. They are only slightly old lady. They get a pass for amazing comfortable and a snakeskin print.

I'm surprised that this is my first time wearing the floral midi skirt this summer. I was all over it last winter. I thought I would wear it more this summer. It looks better with heels though so it fits into my "going out sans V" clothes but I have better looking "no V allowed" clothes to wear. It had been pushed to the dark side of the closet.

The Madonna tee is not really from the 1987 Who's That Girl World tee. It's a 2011 reproduction of the new vintage 80s. V had a onsie like this when she was a newborn so I got all nostalgic of that time and took this .99 Salvation Army find home. It's really soft and broken in too. Sidenote: Gap makes great tees and jeans!

We both had a great time. We watched Afrobella rip the runway; saw Mrs. Houseful looking like she belonged on the runway; made it into a couple of stores for the fashion mission; and spent time with Auntie Girl Get A Life. All of that and we were home by 8p, only an hour past V's bedtime.

LOVE the Madonna tee, vintage or not! Your wedges are definitely not "old lady." I'm glad you BOTH got to have fun!

I invested in midi floral skirt. Not sure what top I'm going to pair it with but I'm thinking a neutral tank will be best.
