Happy Thursday! So do you ever have second day hair days? Today was one of those for me. I showered, but decided to just throw my hair up in a ponytail to save some time since we had to be out the door by 8:45am for preschool and swimming lessons. I don't love second day hair, but it'll have to do today! My outfit today is comfortable and easy...and includes a cardigan. Cardigans are one of my favorite things to wear. I feel like you can go bold with cardigans if you want...I treat them almost like accesories sometimes. Today's cardigan isn't so much bold as it is bright...I love this raspberry color. It just feels like summer. I picked it up on a 30% off sale at LOFT this spring and today is the first time I've worn it. I paired it with a white ruffle shirt and dark jean shorts I bought about 3 years ago from Nordstrom. When I put the shorts on today they just seemed a little too long so I cuffed the bottoms, and wa-la! Problem solved! To top it all off, I threw on these gray (even though they kind of look brown) flat sandals I got on sale at Gap a few months ago...they go with so many things because they're so neutral. I was super tempted to buy the fun red or pink ones, but opted for the gray instead. I think I made the right choice.

My mom is here visiting for the day so I'm sure we'll venture out somewhere with the kids. While I was waiting for preschool to end this morning I popped into Old Navy to see if I could pick up my boys some basketball shorts for their camp they're going to next week since their big sale started today (30% off the entire store and online today through 6/29). I found some great clearance deals in the boys and toddler sections and scored what I needed for super cheap. I was so proud of myself for passing on picking up a skirt for me that was on clearance...just didn't need another one (today). Just because it's on sale doesn't mean I need it...repeat three times. =)
Have a great day!
