Momkins//An Ode to the White Shirt

Guest post by Anna Whitworth.

Its crispiness and simplicity never cease to deliver, be it a work meeting, project presentation, dinner with the in-laws or Saturday’s brunch with the girlfriends, a white shirt will always make you look good. I love them, I cannot stop buying them and I own quite a few of them. They are first runner-up to the white t-shirts as far as quantity goes. At first, I was not always such a fan, I remember the days back in elementary school when we had to wear a white button-up to every school ceremony, a sea of student-penguins is what we were. I think that is when my rebellious (or defiant as I like to call it) soul started resenting the white stiffness of the perceived uniform.
But now as I matured a bit, being in the prime of my youth (hey it is all in one’s head, says my 69 year old father- thriving 21 at heart) I perceive them as an A plus answer to every dressing-up test question one may have for me! Need something for a Friday night cocktails–white shirt and leather (if you are poor like me pleather) pants and heals are a perfect combo (additional bonus if they have ultraviolet lights in da house, I tested and nothing draws more smiles and fist bumps than half of you glowing in the dark). Need something for a quick lunch with your girlfriends on a Sunday afternoon? White button-up and a pair of boyfriend jeans will do! I promise that you will look like you got this, effortlessly and with this surprising, duh-kind of wow-factor. So lets uniform unite, white button-ups we go!

Denim on denim. Classic, cool and easy. I love these culotte style denim wide legs paired with ankle cowboy boots! It gives a modern spin to the classic boots and jeans. Add a belt and a worn in soft and cozy chambray and you’re set! I love this outfit too because it is easy as pie to nurse in with all the quick pearl snaps. As a mom of a 3 month old, my outfits these days have to be functional, as easy as possible and be able to hide spit up and drool! am also wearing my amazing new nursing cover/infinity scarf from Native Wilds. This scarf is so super soft and so easy to incorporate into your outfit and the fact that it doubles as a nursing cover just makes it that much better!

Momkins // Park Play

Playing at the park is universally something we all do with our children. There is something so sweet about watching your kids smile and giggle as they slide down the big slide and swing high up in the sky on the playground. For me, going to the park is one of the many joys that presents itself during the busy week, and it allows me to slow down time and just watch in awe as my babiekins have fun and just be little. Comfy cottons, layers, and great denim are the perfect ensemble for running around in the grass and playing tag. A fabulous Rancher hat finishes an outfit and matching serape blankets are especially fun for a family picnic, with baby snuggles for dessert. Babiekins Magazine | Rancher hat and serape
