I consider myself very lucky to be a working mom, but also get a taste of being a stay at home mom during the summer. This summer Claire is old enough to do a few classes through our recreation department. Our mornings include an hour at the gym then me getting ready as quickly as possible so we can head to whichever class Claire has that day. As they are all parent-child I get to dance around, too. Comfort is key and so I've been reaching for bright colors and patterned items to keep my outfits interesting when I don't have much time. This top I got a while back from Tulip is fitting the bill! See how I styled it two ways here.

  23. I feel the same as you. As a teacher, the working mom life is tough stuff during the year, but I am lucky to be able to stay-at-home during the summer and experience the things we don't get to do together during the year. Great colors!! --- Amy @ http://www.thegiftedgabber.com

  31. I do love flowy tunics for the summer! The best benefit of working in the school system is always getting summers off, plus you will always have all the days off your daughter does - so convenient!
