Comfy Casual




boyfriend jeans - KUT (from Black & Bold), tank - H & M, shoes - Converse, handbag - Christopher Kon (from Winners), star necklace - Loft 82, other jewelry - H & M, sunglasses - Clearly Contacts

I'll let you in on a little secret: as much as I love dressing up and putting on a cute dress and heels, I enjoy dressing down even more. This is a typical weekend outfit for me. Jeans, a tank, comfy shoes - in this case my new slip-on Converse sneakers - and minimal jewelry. I wore this on Saturday while babysitting my nephews for the day with my Mom. (Thanks Mom for taking these pictures!) I have to dress comfortably when my day is spent crawling on the floor, playing in the park and racing up (and rolling down) hills. That little boy in the photo with me is my 4 year old nephew Kayden, who wanted to pose with his Auntie Ree ; ). I can't believe he's four years old already and starting pre-school tomorrow! Time really does fly. It zooms! He now weighs almost half as much as I do and his head is bigger than mine. (I measured.)

How was your weekend?
