a book look

i hosted book club last night. i normally don't do this sort of thing. hosting gives me anxiety. cooking for other people is not my cup of tea. and cleaning my house with kids is a joke. i think jerry seinfeld said it best, "a two year-old is like having a blender, but you don't have a top for it."
so i did what i do best, i put together my most bookish, yet summery outfit. then i winged all the hospitality stuff. i hit up costco and bought all the stuff that i can never justify, like tequila lime wings and lobster ravioli. and i do make delicious box mix brownies.

this was at 11 o'clock last night after everyone left. fresh as a pig in slop.
t shirt- gap

You crack me up with your face. The best part is the open dishwasher. Wish I were part of your book club. LOL!

what book did you read? 18 cheers for costco and box brownies (which, by the way, are delish. i think they might be preferable to 90% of the homemade varieties out there.). AND you look exceptionally bookish and sassy-cute. "pig in slop" puhleeeease.

Love it! We host a book club every other week - used to be every week until I begged my husband for a reprieve! haha. It's always hard to get the house ready with all these things I'm juggling for the kids. You did great! And looked adorbs while doing it!

First of all, kudos to you for having such a great figure! It is always inspiring to see mothers who despite the trials and great efforts in raising children, still take time to look just fabulous.
Secondly, I love this casual look. That skirt is such a perfect length. I have been looking for a skirt of similar nature and now I know, Banana Republic is the place to look!
