Insignificant Victories






Shirt- Target
Skirt- Penney's (Irish store)
Belt- Penney's 
Sandals- Gap
Necklace and cluster bracelet- Ebayed
Watch- Michael Kors
Earrings- hand me down from mom
Ring- gift
I wore this when we went to Bastille Days this past weekend. Matt had never been and we decided to go there for dinner. There was a lot of good people watching and we had a few beignets which made the trip downtown totally worth it! 

For all the mommies out there...You know those items in your wardrobe that you stay away from as long as possible after having a baby? Even when all your other clothes fit, there are a couple things you are scared to try on in case they are still tight. This skirt was one of mine. Ok, let's be honest, it was even snug before I got pregnant! But, no sucking in required, it zipped right up. Hurray for small, insignificant victories! Seriously though, I never realized how many things I could pair this skirt with so I am excited to keep finding ways to wear it. Now to see if those Express editor pants fit...
