casual fancy

top (banana republic, great option)/jeans (j.crew, option)/booties (restricted, lusting after these)/necklace (j.crew, fun option - great price!)/purse (tory burch, similar by Tory Burch)/sunglasses (rebecca minkoff)

While I LOVE getting dressed up in skirts, dresses and heels I don't often get to because, well, it's not really conducive to my lifestyle staying at home with two toddlers. So, in an effort to be more true to my real life style I'm going to put more time into showcasing outfits like these that can add a little fancy to the everyday but are practical enough (ie. machine washable) for the less fancy lifestyle known as parenting (and if you're not a parent these looks are great options for weekend casual.)

....and yes, I realize white jeans are not the best option to wear around toddlers but it's a give and take...and they can be bleached.
